New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi has emphasised that in his third term, India will continue to work for the peace, progress and prosperity of the region in close partnership with the countries, even as it pursues its goal of having a 'Viksit Bharat' by 2047.

Prime Minister Modi's assurance came during his meeting with the visiting leaders following the swearing-in ceremony held at the Rashtrapati Bhawan on Sunday.

Leaders of Maldives, Bangladesh, Nepal and Bhutan were accompanied by Ministers.

The leaders congratulated Prime Minister Modi for taking oath as the Prime Minister of India for a historic third consecutive term.

Thanking them for gracing the occasion, the Prime Minister reaffirmed India's commitment to its 'Neighbourhood First' policy and 'SAGAR Vision'.

"PM Modi called for deeper people-to-people ties and connectivity in the region. He further added that India would continue to amplify the voice of the Global South in the international arena," said the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA).
