NEW DELHI: Terrorism, proliferation of weapons of mass destruction (WMDs) and climate change are three critical challenges the world is facing today, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj said on Wednesday.
 
"There was a time when India would talk about terrorism, and it would be treated as a law and order issue on many global platforms," Swaraj said in her address at the Raisina Dialogue, India's flagship annual geopolitical and geostrategic conference, organised by the External Affairs Ministry in partnership with the Observer Research Foundation (ORF) think tank. 
 
"Today, no country, big or small, is immune from this existential threat, particularly terrorism, actively supported and sponsored by states," she said. "In this digital age, the challenge is even greater, with a greater vulnerability to radicalisation."
