BRICS meeting highlights climate change, trade, terrorism

On Friday, China said Foreign Ministers of Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa would have a candid discussion on terrorism. Our national security advisors are scheduled to meet next month.

Nkoana-Mashabane also pointed to the need to form joint efforts to fight terrorism, sentiments reflected by Vijay Kumar Singh, an Indian External Affairs official.

Xi said that the Xiamen Summit is expected as an opportunity to make new advances in the area of cultural and the people-to-people exchanges and cooperation, which in turn will help cement public support for BRICS cooperation.

India, today, pitched for a greater engagement with BRICS nations which have steadily expanded its agenda from financial matters to security and counter terrorism issues facing the global community.

India on Sunday said it looks forward to strengthen its strategic partnership and mutual dialogue with China as the two sides held talks in Beijing amid differences over a host of issues, including China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) and India's nuclear suppliers group (NSG) membership bid.

Open record for low round in relation to par. "It was bombs away, you could hit it far and the fairways were generous enough". Masters champion Sergio Garcia is world number seven and the Spaniard had a solid, if unspectacular, week in Wisconsin.

"I reiterate India attaches its utmost importance to its engagement with BRICS".

Mr. Wang referred to the fruitful and constructive meeting between Mr. Xi and Mr. Modi on the sidelines of Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) last week at Astana.

Climate change, trade and terrorism are being highlighted at a Beijing summit bringing together Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa.

Singh said that "Besides cooperating on financial issues, the BRICS agenda has witnessed steady expansion", adding that BRICS countries have reached significant understanding on security and counter terrorism issues. The 9th BRICS Summit will be held next September in the Chinese city of Xiamen, Fujian Province.
