During the Foreign Ministers meeting of BRICS countries (Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa) which began on Sunday, India has said that BRICS should combat terrorism strictly. At the same time, China said that during this meeting, there will be a discussion of ‘Non-Lagat’ on the issue of terrorism. Beijing has also said that there is a possibility of no differences in the issue in the member countries meeting.
In the meeting, India is represented by Minister of State for External Affairs, General (Retired) VK Singh. India can raise the issue of China’s disruption in India’s efforts to ban Pakistani terrorist Masood Azhar in the United Nations. VK Singh said that all National Security Advisers of BRICS countries will meet in July.
He said, “The BRICS Joint Working Committee on terrorism had held a meeting in May 2017.” He said, “Our permanent representatives present in the United Nations League are constantly making efforts to address issues of mutual interest.
Vk Singh also meet Chinese Foreign Minister:-
Minister of State for External Affairs VK Singh met the Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi on Sunday and discussed the improvement in bilateral relations. She has gone to Beijing to attend the Foreign Ministers meeting of BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa). In September this year, the BRICS conference will be held in China’s Shiyanan city and meeting in Beijing to decide its agenda.
VK Singh said that India would like to strengthen ties of strategic cooperation with China. He says that PM Narendra Modi and China’s President Xi Jinping’s agenda were carried forward in an interaction with the Chinese Foreign Minister. The conference of BRICS was last held in Goa. During this time, India was its president, while China is leading this time.
It is notable that there is a standoff between several issues between China and India. While China is consistently opposing India’s membership in the NSG group, then China has stuck to the United Nations in the case of Jaish-e-Mohammad terrorists. The dispute between the two countries is continuing on the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPC). India wants China’s project to move forward with Pakistan, but China is not ready to listen to anything.
