Ajit Doval hosts inaugural meeting of IBSA National Security Advisers

National Security Adviser Ajit Doval hosted the inaugural meeting of the IBSA National Security Advisers through video conferencing on Wednesday. During the meeting, discussions were held on maritime security, fight against terrorism and transnational organized crime, and cyber security. Participants agreed that terrorism, in particular, cross-border terrorism undertaken through state sponsorship, continues to be the most potent threat to global peace and security and must be fought through united efforts. They also agreed to enhance cooperation in intelligence sharing, exchange of best practices amongst concerned national agencies and capacity building.

The meeting was convened as part of the preparatory process for the next IBSA Summit of Leaders which is scheduled to take place during India’s Chairship of IBSA. The theme for India’s Chairship under Prime Minister Narendra Modi is “Democracy for Demography and Development”. This was the first such meeting of National Security Advisers of IBSA countries, reflecting the importance of closer cooperation among the three countries to meet growing political and security challenges in the world.

India, Brazil and South Africa are three large developing countries located in three different continents bound by common values of democracy and pluralism. They are also all maritime nations.
