Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed the annual summit of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) via video conferencing on September 17.
In his address, PM Modi stated that world must encourage the talented youngsters towards science and rational thinking.
‘The 20th anniversary of the SCO is a suitable occasion to think about the future of the SCO. I believe that the biggest challenges in this area are related to peace, security and trust-deficit and the root cause of these problems is increasing radicalization. Recent developments in Afghanistan have made this challenge more apparent,’ said PM Modi.
He also said, ‘We must encourage our talented youngsters towards science and rational thinking. We can bring our startups and entrepreneurs together to make the innovative spirit towards making India a stakeholder in an emerging technology.’
