NEW DELHI -- Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday said recent developments in Europe have raised a question mark over the stability of the international order, although he did not directly refer to Russia's invasion of Ukraine.

"In this context, it has become important to make BIMSTEC regional cooperation more active," he said in a virtual address at the fifth summit of the seven-nation group called the Bay of Bengal Initiative for Multi-Sectoral Technical and Economic Cooperation, hosted by current chair Sri Lanka.
