Highlighting the importance of unity in solving the various global problems, Prime Minister Narendra Modi stressed on the age-old mantra of ''Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam'' at the World Economic Forum (WEF) here on Tuesday.

Delivering the keynote address at the plenary session of the WEF, Prime Minister Modi said the mantra was crucial to bridge the existing gap in humanity.

"India has always believed in values of integration and unity or ''Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam'' which means the entire world is one family. It is relevant to bridge distances. We have always believed in uniting humanity, not breaking it," he said.

Acknowledging the advantages of the technological revolution across the world, the Prime Minister noted that it has been equally capable of creating obstacles in cyber security and the nuclear space.

"There are some explosive forces in the environment that are capable of creating barriers for development, world peace and stability. However, if we stand as one unit, we can help bridge the fractures created by these," he said.

Prime Minister Modi further called for retrospection on these obstacles, and said it is high time we stand in unison and examine whether in any way, we are encouraging the existence of these barriers.
