Egyptian officials say the expansion of the five-nation BRICS bloc into "BRICS Plus" is set to create a useful new platform for communication among developing countries.

"We value the BRICS countries' consensus on this issue, which allows us to more consistently advocate the foundations of an open, equal and mutually beneficial multilateral trade system and to strengthen the role of the WTO as the key regulator in global trade", wrote Putin.

Asked about China's comments that it will not be appropriate to discuss Pakistan's counter-terrorism records at the BRICS summit at Xiamen, External Affairs Ministry Spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said he can not pre-empt what Modi will say during his interventions at the restricted and plenary sessions of the summit. The "BRICS card" came in handy for India to moderate China's initially adamant and belligerent stance that threatened "annihilation" of the Indian Army.

THE BRICS group of emerging economies must promote trade liberalization and an open world economy, Chinese President Xi Jinping said at a business meeting yesterday at the start of a summit in southeast China.

Apart from this Prime Minister, Narendra Modi will also visit Myanmar from September 5-7.

China prefers bilateral instruments to tackle territorial rows and contests because it enjoys a huge conventional military superiority over any single rival, be it India, Vietnam, the Philippines or Japan.

Modi is expected to raise topics of global challenges like terrorism and economic cooperation will also be addressed at the summit. "This serves the common interest of all parties".

"We hope to be able to discuss new large-scale cooperation tasks in trade and investment and industrial cooperation at the Xiamen Summit", said Putin.

"We BRICS countries are committed to upholding global peace and contributing to the worldwide security order", the Global Times quoted Xi as saying.

China has invited Egypt, Kenya, Tajikistan, Mexico and Thailand as guest countries for the Xiamen BRICS summit as special guests like India invited BIMSTEC (Bay of Bengal Initiative for Multi-Sectoral Technical and Economic) leaders for last year's BRICS summit at Goa.

According to sources, India is expected to flag its concerns over terrorism. Mr Modi said, "India attaches high importance to BRICS, which has begun a second decade of its partnership for progress and peace". She meant the five members of BRICS including India when she mentioned "relevant parties". The theme of the ninth annual summit is "Stronger Partnership for a Brighter Future".
