"Old structures of terrorism remain and there are countries that still use it as an instrument of state policy," Modi said during a critical intervention in a working dinner of the G20 Summit that got underway in this Mediterranean resort city.

"From regions in conflict to the streets of distant cities, terrorism extracts a deadly price," he said in the wake of Friday's deadly terrorist attacks in Paris that claimed 129 lives.
