intelligently on specific countries because I do not know enough about them. I
can only speak generally about poverty and terrorism. I can only say that

We have huge amounts of resources that are being used to fight the elusive enemy, terrorism, while the evident enemy, poverty, is left to grow more dangerous. Eradicating poverty is not as simple. Eradication of poverty and the ending of hunger have long been recognized as among the most central challenges. Equitable growth are essential for poverty reduction.

The elimination of poverty is a big challenge to the future economic growth. Poverty also affects people's daily lives. We need to invest more in the basic needs of our people. There is no doubt that terrorism and poverty harms democracy.
