LEH: The Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday accused Pakistan of continuing its proxy war of terrorism against India, the Indian media reports said.
The “neighbouring country has lost the strength to fight a conventional war, but continues to engage in proxy war of terrorism,” Modi said while addressing soldiers at Leh, the capital of the Ladakh region.
Modi is on a day-long visit to the Ladakh region, becoming the first Indian prime minister in 15 years to visit the Siachen glacier.
The Indian premier further said that the government is committed to make India self-reliant in defence manufacturing.
Narendra Modi said that the Indian military is suffering more casualties from terrorism than from war.
“This is a global problem and all humanitarian forces of the world should unite to fight it. India is committed to strengthening and uniting these humanitarian forces.”
In addition, he said that the country is committed to strong armed forces and to equipping them with modern arms and technology.
