 Vientiane: Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi today said rising export of terror, growing radicalization through ideology of hatred, and spread of extreme violence define the landscape of common security threats to our societies.

Modi was delivering the opening remarks at the 14th ASEAN-India Summit here today.

The threat is local, regional and transnational at the same time, the Prime Minister said. Our partnership with ASEAN seeks to craft a response that relies on coordination, cooperation and sharing of experiences at multiple levels

In face of growing traditional and non-traditional challenges, politico-security cooperation is a key emerging pillar of our relationship, observed Modi.
