Rawat: Learn from 9/11 America to end terrorismJanuary 16, 2020 10:15
Chief of Defence Staff General Bipin Rawat, at Raisina Dialogue 2020, in Delhi: "The war on terror is not ending, it is something which is going to continue, we will have to live with it, until we understand and get to the roots of terrorism.
"We've to bring an end to terrorism and that can only happen the way Americans started after 9/11, they said let's go on a spree on global war on terror. To do that you have to isolate the terrorists, anybody who is sponsoring terrorism has to be taken to task.
"Terrorism is here to stay so long as there are going to be states that are going to sponsor terrorism & they are going to use terrorists as proxies, make weapons available to them, make funding for them, then we can't control terrorism.
"You have to come to a peace deal with everybody (in Afghanistan), if you've to come to a peace deal with them you've to go for negotiated peace. Taliban or whichever org is contemplating terror has to give up that weapon of terror, they must come to the political mainstream."
