NEW DELHI, June 1 (UPI) -- An Indian Cabinet minister Sunday urged delegates at an international terrorism summit in New Delhi to stop politicizing terrorism.
Minister of Science and Technology and Minister of Earth Sciences Kapil Sibal called terrorism a disease that "knows no boundary," noting politicizing the issue only encourages terrorism.
"The nations indulging in arms supply and financing terrorists for narrow political gains must stop such activities," the Press Trust of India quoted him as saying.
The Dalai Lama, also speaking at the conference, said combating terrorism is a "universal responsibility" that all the world religions can embrace by promoting "secular values and religious harmony," PTI said.
The Dalai Lama also praised India as a model for religious tolerance for the rest of the world.
