Greetings to all

I am deeply honoured to be awarded the Seoul Peace Prize I believe that this award belongs not to me personally, but to the people of India. The award belongs to the success that India has achieved in the less than five years, powered by the strengths and skillsof one point three billion Indians. And so, on their behalf, I humbly accept the Award and express my gratitude. This award is a recognition of the philosophy that has given the message of वसुधैव कुटुम्बकम which means the entire world is one family. This award is for the culture that has given the message of peace even on the battle-field, as Lord Krishna gave the teachings of Bhagwad Gita during the battle in the महाभारत.This Award is for a land where we are taught

ॐ द्यौ: शान्तिरन्तरिक्षं शान्ति, पृथ्वी शान्तिराप: शान्तिरोषधय: शान्ति:।
वनस्पतय: शान्तिर्विश्वे देवा: शान्तिर्ब्रह्म शान्ति,सर्वँ शान्ति:, शान्तिरेव शान्ति, सा मा शान्तिरेधि॥
ॐ शान्ति: शान्ति: शान्ति:॥

Which means:

May there be peace every where in the sky in space,

all over our planet, in nature.

May there be eternal peace.

And, this award is for the people who have always put societal good above individual ambitions. And, I am honoured that this award is being conferred on me in the year that we celebrate the 150th Birth Anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi. I would like to contribute the Monetary award of Two Hundred Thousand dollars that one crore thirty lakh rupees to the नमामि गंगे Fund,our effort to clean a river that is not only held sacred by all the people of India, but is also an economic life-line to millions of my countrymen and women.

Friends,

The Seoul Peace Prize was established to mark the success and spirit of the 24th Summer Olympics held in Seoul in 1988. India remembers the games quite well. Because they ended on Mahatma Gandhi’s birthday. The games showcased the best of Korean culture,the warmth of Korean hospitality, and the success of the Korean economy. And,not to forget, they marked the arrival of a new sporting power-house in the global arena! But,the games were also an important landmark in world history. The 1988 Olympics were held at a time of many changes in the world. The Iran-Iraq War had just ended. The Geneva Accords relating to the situation in Afghanistan had been signed earlier that year. The Cold War was ending, and there was great hope that a new golden age will soon Dawn. And for a while, it did. The world is better in many aspects today than it was in 1988 Global poverty has been steadily falling. Health-care and education outcomes have been improving. And yet, many daunting global challenges remain.Some are old, some new. A few months before the Seoul Olympics, the first public warnings about climate change were sounded.Today, it is recognized as a big threat to human-kind. A few weeks before the Seoul Olympics, an organization called Al-Qaeda was formed. Today, radicalization and terrorism have become globalized and are the biggest threats to global peace and security. And, millions of people around the world still remain without adequate and quality access to food, shelter,health-care, sanitation, power, and above all, dignity of life. Clearly, there is a lot more that needs to be done.The solution to the hard-ships we face is in hard work. And, India is doing her part. We have been working to improve the well being of the people of India - who form one-sixth of humanity. India is today the fastest growing large economy in the world with strong economic fundamentals. This has been possible because of the major economic changes that we have introduced. Flag-ship initiatives such as ‘Make in India’, ‘Skill India’, ‘Digital India’, ‘Clean India’ have contributed to visible socio-economic growth. We have focused on financial inclusion, access to credit, digital transactions, last mile connectivity, andsupport to small and medium enterprise so as to spread development across the country and enrich all the citizens of India. The Swachh Bharat Abhiyan is making India clean; From a sanitation coverage of around 38% in 2014, the number today stands at 98%! The Ujjwala Yojana is improving the lives of rural women through use of clean cooking fuel; Ayushman Bharat is providing health-care and insurance to 500 million poor and vulnerable people; and, Through these initiatives, and many more, we have contributed to holistic development and India's march towards achievement of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. In all our efforts, we are guided by Mahatma Gandhi's teaching that we should recall the face of the poorest and the weakest person that we have ever seen and ask ourselves if the step that we plan is going to be of any benefit to that person.

Friends,

India’s growth story is not only good for the people of India but also for the entire world. We live in an increasingly connected world. As the third largest economy, our growth and prosperity will inevitably contribute to global growth and development. We are committed to make a peaceful, stable and economically inter-linked world. India, as a responsible member of the international community, has also been in the fore-front of our collective fight against climate change. Despite having a historically low carbon foot-print, India has been playing an active role in the global fight against climate change. At the domestic level, this has been done by unveiling a National Action Plan to reduce carbon emissions, increase forest cover, and replacing traditional carbon fuels with renewable energy supplies. On the international plane, we have partnered with like-minded countries to launch the International Solar Alliance, which aims to harness the clean and unlimited solar energy as an alternative to fossil fuels. We are one of the largest troop contributing countries for UN peace-keeping operations. And, we are proud to have been able to contribute to peace on the Korean peninsula. We have extended a helping hand to countries in need and participated actively in humanitarian work and disaster relief. We have carried out operations in conflict zones and rescued not only Indians but also nationals of many other countries. We have been an active and considerate development partner for other developing countries, with our guiding principle being to help in developing their physical and social infrastructure. Through these efforts, we seek to ensure that the benefits of a globalised and inter-connected world are equally experienced by all. Over the past few years, my Government has renewed interaction and forged new partnerships across continents. In the East Asian context, we have redefined our engagements with countries in the region, including with Republic of Korea, under our Act East Policy. I am glad to hear an echo of our approach in President Moon's New Southern Policy.

Friends,

India has been the land of peace for ages. The people of India have practiced the concept of peace and harmonious co-existence for thousands of years. With hundreds of languages and dialects, many states, and major religions, India is proud to be one of the most diverse nations in the world. We are proud that ours is a land where people of all faiths, beliefs, and communities can prosper. We are proud that ours is a society based not only on tolerance, but on celebration of differences and diverse cultures.

Friends,

Like Korea, India has also suffered the pain of cross-border strife. Our endeavour towards peaceful development has only too often been de-railed by cross-border terrorism. While India has been the victim of cross-border terrorism for over 40 years, all nations today face this grave threat which respects no borders. The time has come for all those who believe in humanity to join hands to completely eradicate terrorist networks and their financing, supply channels, and to counter terrorist ideology and propaganda. Only by doing so can we replace hate with harmony; destruction with development; and, transform the landscape of violence and vendetta into a post-card for peace.

Friends,

Progress over the past year towards peace on the Korean peninsula has been heartening. President Moon deserves all the praise for the role he has played in overcoming the legacy of mutual distrust and suspicion between the D.P.R.K. and the international community, and bringing them to the discussion table. This is no small achievement. I state again my Government's strong support to the ongoing dialogue process between the two Koreas and between the U.S.A. and D.P.R.K.

As the popular Korean saying goes:

Shichagi Bhanida,

"A good beginning is half the battle”.

I have every confidence that with continued efforts from the Korean people, peace will soon prevail on the Korean Peninsula. Friends, I would like to end by quoting a portion of the 1988 Olympics Theme Song, because it perfectly captures the hopeful spirit for a better tomorrow for all of us: Hand in hand, we standAll across the land,We can make this world,A better place in which to live.

Gamsa Hamnida !

Thank you.

Thank you very much.

Press statement by Prime Minister during his visit to Republic of Korea

Your Excellency राष्ट्रपति
मून-जे-इन
Distinguished delegates,

Friends,
आनयोंग
हा-सेयो!
नमस्कार!

कोरिया आने के निमंत्रण के लिए, और हमारे गर्मजोशी भरे स्वागत के लिए, मैं राष्ट्रपति मून का ह्रदय से आभार प्रकट करता हूँ। मैंने पहले भी कई बार कहा है, और जब मैं प्रधानमंत्री नहीं बना था, तब से मेरा मानना रहा है, कि भारत के विकास के लिए, कोरिया का model शायद सबसे अधिक अनुकरणीय है। कोरिया की प्रगति भारत के लिए प्रेरणा का स्रोत है। और इसलिए, कोरिया की यात्रा करना मेरे लिए हमेशा प्रसन्नता का विषय होता है।

Friends,

पिछले वर्ष जुलाई में हमें राष्ट्रपति मून का भारत में स्वागत करने का अवसर मिला था। East Asia Summit और G-20 Summit के समय भी हमारी मुलाकातें हुई। मैंने अनुभव किया है कि भारत कीAct East Policy और कोरिया की New Southern Policy का तालमेल हमारी Special Strategic Partnership को और अधिक गहराई और मजबूती देने का सुदृढ़ platform दे रहा है।

Indo-Pacific के संबंध में भारत का विजन समावेशिता, आसियान की केन्द्रीयता और साझी समृद्धि पर विशेष जोर देता है। यह एक ऐसा क्षेत्र है जिसमें भारत और कोरिया साझा मूल्यों और हितों के आधार पर, पूरे क्षेत्र एवं विश्व के लाभ के लिए मिलकर काम कर सकते हैं।

और मुझे प्रसन्नता है कि पिछले वर्ष राष्ट्रपति जी की भारत यात्रा के बाद बहुत ही कम समय में हमने अपने संबंधों में महत्वपूर्ण प्रगति की है। यह प्रगति और भविष्य में हमारे संबंधों का रोडमैप, People, Peace और Prosperity के हमारे साझा विज़न पर आधारित है।

Friends,

पिछले सप्ताह भारत में पुलवामा में हुए आतंकी हमले के बाद, राष्ट्रपति मून के संवेदना और समर्थन के संदेश के लिए हम उनके आभारी हैं। हम आतंकवाद के खिलाफ अपने द्विपक्षीय और अंतर्राष्ट्रीय सहयोग और समन्वय को और अधिक मजबूत करने के लिए प्रतिबद्ध हैं।

आज भारत के गृह मंत्रालय और कोरिया की राष्ट्रीय पुलिस एजेंसी के बीच संपन्न हुआ MOU हमारे counter-terrorism सहयोग को और आगे बढ़ाएगा। और, अब समय आ गया है कि वैश्विक समुदाय भी बातों से आगे बढ़ कर, इस समस्या के विरोध में एकजुट हो कर कार्यवाही करे।

Friends,

भारत के आर्थिक परिवर्तन में हम कोरिया को मूल्यवान साझेदार मानते हैं। हमारे trade और investment संबंध बढ़ रहे हैं। आज राष्ट्रपित मून और मैंने 2030 तक हमारे द्विपक्षीय व्यापार को बढ़ा कर50 billion dollars तक ले जाने के लक्ष्य के प्रति अपना commitment दोहराया है।

Infrastructure, Port Development, Marine (मरीन) और Food Processing, Start-ups और Small and Medium Enterprises जैसे sectors में हम अपना सहयोग बढ़ाने पर सहमत हैं।

हमारी बढ़ती सामरिक साझेदारी में रक्षा क्षेत्र की अहम भूमिका है। इसका एक उदहारण भारतीय थल सेना में K-9 "वज्र” आर्टिलरी गन के शामिल होने में देखा जा सकता है।

रक्षा उत्पादन में इस उल्लेखनीय सहयोग को आगे बढ़ाने के लिए हमने defence technology और co-production पर एक रोडमैप बनाने के लिए भी सहमति की है। और इसके अंतर्गत हम भारत में बनाए जा रहे defence industrial corridors में कोरियाई कंपनियों की भागीदारी का भी स्वागत करेंगे।

Friends,

पिछले वर्ष नवम्बर में अयोध्या में आयोजित 'दीपोत्सव' महोत्सव में First Lady किम की मुख्य अतिथि के रूप में भागीदारी हमारे लिए सम्मान का विषय था। उनकी यात्रा से हज़ारों वर्षों के हमारे सांस्कृतिक संबंधों पर एक नया प्रकाश पड़ा, और नई पीढ़ी में उत्सुकता और जागरूकता का वातावरण बना।

हमारे ऐतिहासिक people-to-people संबंधों को और अधिक मजबूत करने के लिए हमने भारत में कोरिया के नागरिकों के लिए Visa on Arrival की सुविधा पिछले वर्ष अक्टूबर से शुरू कर दी है।

कोरिया द्वारा भारत के नागरिकों के लिए Group Visa के सरलीकरण के निर्णय का मैं स्वागत करता हूँ। इससे हमारे द्विपक्षीय पर्यटन का विकास होगा।

मेरी यह कोरिया यात्रा ऐसे महत्वपूर्ण वर्ष में हो रही है, जब महात्मा गांधी की 150वीं वर्षगाँठ मनाई जा रही है। और कोरिया में लोकतंत्र के आन्दोलन का शताब्दी समारोह भी मनाया जा रहा है।

हमारे महात्मा गाँधी स्मरणोत्सव संग्रह के लिए राष्ट्रपति मून द्वारा लिखी गई श्रद्धांजलि के लिए मैं उनका आभारी हूँ।

Friends,

आज कोरियाई प्रायद्वीप में जो शांति और स्थिरता हमें नजर आती है उसका श्रेय राष्ट्रपति मून के अथक प्रयासों को जाता है। उनके दृढ़ विश्वास और धीरज के लिए मैं उनका अभिनंदन करता हूँ।

और कोरियाई प्रायद्वीप में स्थायी शांति के लिए भारत के पूरे सहयोग की वचन-बद्धता को दोहराता हूं। आज दोपहर सौल शांति पुरस्कार प्राप्त करना मेरे लिए बहुत बड़े सम्मान का विषय होगा।

मैं यह सम्मान अपनी निजी उपलब्धियों के तौर पर नहीं बल्कि भारत की जनता के लिए कोरियाई जनता की सद्भावना और स्नेह के प्रतीक के तौर पर स्वीकार करूंगा। मुझे और मेरे प्रतिनिधिमंडल को दिए गए स्नेहपूर्ण स्वागत और आतिथ्य के लिए मैं राष्ट्रपति मून, कोरियाई सरकार और कोरियाई जनता को ह्रदय से धन्यवाद देता हूँ।

खम्सा-हम-निदा
धन्यवाद।
