Leh: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday came out strongly against Pakistan for continuing its proxy war of terrorism against India, saying it has lost the strength to fight a conventional war.

Addressing troops of Army and the Indian Air Force on his maiden trip to Leh and Ladakh, Modi condemned the continuing proxy war by Pakistan.

"The neighbouring country has lost the strength to fight a conventional war, but continues to engage in the proxy war of terrorism," he said.

The Prime Minister said the Indian armed forces were suffering more casualties from terrorism than from war. Noting that this is a global problem, the Prime Minister said all humanitarian forces of the world should unite to fight it.

"India is committed to strengthening and uniting these humanitarian forces," he said.

Modi said India was committed to strong armed forces, well-equipped with modern arms and technology. The jawans should be assured that the entire country supports them, he stressed.

The Prime Minister said soldiers are unaware about struggles that their families face in day-to-day life and this energy and sense of duty inspires him and, therefore, he keeps visiting jawans on the border to seek inspiration.
