China recounts Pakistan's sacrifices against terrorism ahead of BRICS summit

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has today said that he will visit China from 3rd to 5th September to attend the BRICS Summit.

India had hosted the previous BRICS summit in Goa past year. The Chinese president said he looked forward to working with other Brics leaders to ensure the Xiamen summit would deliver results that would inject fresh impetus into cooperation in the group, offer new solutions on improving global governance and make new contributions to world economic growth.

"The impact of BRICS cooperation reaches far beyond the five countries, I believe the BRICS Plus model will fully release the vitality of BRICS cooperation", said Foreign Minister Wang Yi at a recent press conference in Beijing.

Xi will chair the Dialogue of Emerging Markets and Developing Countries on September 5, which will be attended by the leaders from the five BRICS countries, as well as the leaders of Egypt, Mexico, Tajikistan, Guinea and Thailand.

The summit will be the first gathering when the leaders of Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa will meet after New Delhi and Beijing decided on "expeditious disengagement" of their border troops in the disputed Dokalam area on August 28.

"India attaches high importance to the role of BRICS that has begun a second decade of its partnership for progress and peace", he added.

Highlighting the significance of BRICS, the Prime Minister said it has important contributions in addressing global challenges and upholding world peace and security. Prime Minister will also be on the state visit of Myanmar from 5-7 September 2017. I have had the opportunity for discussions with both dignitaries during their visits to India in 2016.

We will also look at strengthening our existing cooperation on security and counter-terrorism, trade and investment, skill development, infrastructure and energy, and culture.

The Prime Minister will also visit Myanmar after attending the BRICS Summit which is being held in Xiamen in Fujian province of China.

"In addition to the issuing of the Xiamen declaration and action plan, new proposals will be explored to further deepen co-operation and to expand the Brics institution-building agenda".

I am also keen to meet and interact with the Indian-origin community of Myanmar, whose history goes back more than a century.

Modi said during the visit, the two sides will review developments in bilateral relations, especially the extensive programme of development cooperation and socio-economic assistance that India is undertaking in Myanmar.

The Myanmarese president and Suu Kyi had visited India past year.
