Riyadh: United States President Donald Trump said India was a victim of terrorism and asked countries to ensure that terror groups dont find sanctuaries on their soil.
During his speech at the Arab-Islamic-US summit Trump said, The nations of Europe have also endured unspeakable horror, so too have nations of Africa and South America, India, Russia, China, Australia have all been victims..
Without naming Pakistan, Trump said every country must ensure that terrorists do not find any sanctuary on their lands.
While addressing the leaders of 50 Muslim-majority countries on Sunday afternoon in his first speech on a foreign soil, Trump, called on the Middle-eastern countries to combat the crisis of Islamic extremism emanating from the region.
Terming the fight against terrorism as a battle between good and evil, and not a clash between the West and Islam, Trump sought to chart a new course for Americas role in the region – aimed at rooting out terrorism.
This is not a battle between different faiths, different sects, or different civilizations. This is a battle between barbaric criminals who seek to obliterate human life, and decent people of all religions who seek to protect it. This is a battle between good and evil, he added.
This is Donald Trumps first overseas visit and his speech was the highlight of his two-day visit. The Saudi king also felicitated Donald Trump with their highest civilian order. Trump brought with him a $110 billion arms package for his hosts, aimed at bolstering Saudi security and a slew of business agreements.
