PM Modi's dig at China: We don’t covet others’ territory
NEW DELHI: In a subtle dig at China's One Belt, One Road project, Prime Minister Modi said on Tuesday that India didn't covet any other country's resources or territory, and that its external policies were based on human values and not on the notion of profit and loss.
After inaugurating the first-ever conference of parliamentarians and political leaders of Indian origin from across the world, Modi said the world's perception of India had changed in the past three to four years, adding that "reform to transform" was his government's mantra.
"Our development aid is not based on the give-and-take model. Rather, it depends on the needs and priorities of those countries. We have no intention of exploiting their resources and we don't eye their territory. Our focus has always been on capacity-building and resource development," Modi said.
