Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched the Centre for Gandhian and Indian Studies at Fudan University in Shanghai on Saturday.

Addressing the students at the university, Modi talked of the two nation’s historical ties and the need for cooperation to eliminate poverty.

“It is said that 21st century belongs to Asia. One-third of the world population belongs to these two countries. So if India and China work together to eliminate poverty, one-third of the global population will be rid of this problem, which will be beneficial for the entire world,” he said to the students and faculty of the university, in Hindi.

The PM said that the two nations house one third of  world’s population, and hence eliminating poverty will benefit the world as a whole.

At the occasion Modi also praised Gandhi, calling him a global citizen.

“The world today is going through two major crises — global warming and terrorism. Solutions to both lie in Gandhi’s teachings. Gandhi is still relevant.” he said.
