The global challenges need to be fought through global collaboration, regardless of any ideology and individual leanings, said Union Minister, Dr Jitendra Singh on Tuesday.

While attending the ministerial plenary in Abu Dhabi on the ‘Role of Foreign Policy in Enabling Space Diplomacy and International Cooperation’ Singh said that space debate has brought all of us together to think about the wellbeing of the earth.

Singh said that right from the beginning, India has envisaged for itself and pledged that our space and atomic energy programmes are dedicated to peaceful purposes.

He said that the same was said even when we started our atomic programme soon after independence in the immediate backdrop of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombings during second world war when the world hated anything which carried the name atomic with it. 

The Minister pointed out that India's founding scientists like Homi Bhabha had declared to the world about India’s peaceful nuclear pursuits and we have walked the talk and vindicated the same in the case of our Space programme as well.
