Addressing the BRICS and BIMSTEC Summits here, he said Pakistan "embraces and radiates" the darkness of terrorism and pressed for "comprehensive" and "collective" action against the menace and its supporters, warning that any selective approach will be "counter-productive".
He also appeared to be sending out a message to the Chinese President whose country has blocked designation of Pak-based terror group JeM chief Masood Azhar as a global terrorist by the United Nations as he said that those supporting terrorism have to be "punished, not rewarded".
