Dialogue is the only way to cut through deep-rooted religious stereotypes and prejudices that divide communities across the world and sow seeds of conflict between nations and societies, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Saturday.
"As the inter-connected and interdependent world of 21st century battles a number of global challenges, from terrorism to climate change, I am confident that the solutions will be found through Asia's oldest traditions of dialogue and debate," he said.
Modi said he is a "product of the ancient Indian tradition that firmly believes in dialogue on difficult issues."
He stated this in a video message to the 2nd edition of 'Samvad- Global Initiative on Conflict Avoidance and Environment Consciousness' being held in Yangon.
The prime minister said the ancient Indian concept of "Tarka Shastra" (debate) is founded on dialogue and debate as the model for exchange of views and avoidance of conflict.
