GOA, India (Reuters) - Prime Minister Narendra Modi said leaders of BRICS nations meeting at a summit on Sunday had been unanimous in recognising the threat posed by terrorism to economies globally.

The sponsors of terrorism were "as much a threat to us as the terrorists themselves", Modi said in his closing remarks to reporters after a two-day BRICS summit.

BRICS stands for Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa.
