Prime Minister Narendra Modi Friday said the time has come for the global community to "unite and act" to completely eradicate terror networks and their financing supply channels.

Asserting that India has suffered the pain of cross-border terrorism for over 40 years, Modi said the country's endeavour towards peaceful developments has only too often been derailed by this menace.

Modi, who is in Seoul on a two-day visit to South Korea, expressed his gratitude for the host country's support to India after the militant attack in Kashmir on February 14.

Later, speaking at an event after receiving the prestigious Seoul Peace Prize for 2018, Modi said, all nations today face this grave threat which respects no borders.

"The time has come for all those who believe in humanity to join hands, to completely eradicate terrorist networks, and their financing supply channels and counter terrorist ideology and propaganda. Only by doing so, can we replace hate with harmony, destruction with development, and transform the landscape of violence and vendetta into a postcard of peace," Modi added.
