Terrorism is a menace which has to be fought unitedly by all nations, setting aside other differences, in perfect co-ordination as otherwise all nations would suffer, according to Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu.

He was delivering a special lecture at the two-day meeting of BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) special envoys on Middle-East which began here in a hotel on Tuesday.

Inaugurating the second meeting of envoys on Middle-East from the five-nation group which included deputy foreign ministers and top officials, he said now the time had come for a united approach as the cross-border and cross-country terrorism was threatening development and endangering the lives of people.

“They are indulging in mindless killing of human beings and destroying properties to spread terror. We have to adopt an integrated approach to fight them,” he said.

The city also played host to Third BRICS Urbanisation Forum in September last year. The delegates said they were enthralled by the beauty of the city .

MEA Secretary Amar Sinha said the delegates would discuss issues pertaining to refugee crisis being created due to civil wars in various countries, rise of IS suicide bombers, terror financing and unabated violence in Israel-Palestine, civil war in Iraq and Syria. He said they would work out an integrated approach to address these issues.
