Ms Swaraj, during her address at the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) Council of Foreign Ministers in Beijing, raised the issue of global terrorism and protectionism.
"There are a number of challenges that are being faced by the world today, foremost being the threat of global terrorism and the imminent need to build a strong security architecture to combat it," the minister said.
"Protectionism in all its forms should be rejected and efforts should be made to discipline measures that constitute barriers to trade. India is committed to working with the SCO to strengthen our economic and investment ties.We believe that economic globalization should be more open, inclusive, equitable and balanced for mutual benefits," Ms Swaraj added.
