NEW YORK: Prime Minister Narendra Modi described terrorism as the greatest danger, as he called for the world to come together to challenge its menace.

He also outlined the steps taken by him in India to make governance easier, to invite foreign investments and provide skills to the Indian youth to become the workforce of the world.

In an address at the Council of Foreign Relations here, Modi also likened the relations between the U.S. and India to the relationship shared by a husband and a wife with "never 100 percent comfort".

On border row with China, Modi said both countries were in dialogue to solve it even as they were taking their economic and other ties forward.

He dismissed a suggestion to have arbitration to solve the border row with China, saying both countries were well capable to resolve it through dialogue.

Modi also said his government believed in women empowerment and his cabinet includes 25 perecent women ministers and that his government was pushing a policy -- 'Educate your daughter, save your daughter' -- as part of women empowerment.

The prime minister said his government was bringing in good governance to make things speedier and more transparent, and stressed on improving the quality of lives of the neo-middle class, the people who have come out of poverty and do not wish to return.

"If I can bring change in their economic status then we can be sure they can come out of poverty, or they will become sceptical." He outlined the plans for this -- to increase the growth rate, expedite economic reforms -- and also mentioned how the growth rate has risen from 4.5 percent to 5.7 percent now on the back of the new confidence and trust that has provided new momentum.
