MoS External Affairs meets Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi


"Everyone agrees that terrorism is a common enemy of mankind".

BRICS will continue to be a growth engine of the world economy despite difficulties and challenges, Chinese Finance Minister Xiao Jie said Monday.

Singh said "terrorism remains the most potent global menace and threatens global peace" and that "terrorists can not be differentiated by calling them good or bad".

Singh avoided making any reference to differences between the two countries, including CPEC, Beijing blocking India's entry into the strategic NSG besides a United Nations ban on Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) leader Masood Azhar.

South Korean Foreign Minister Maite Nkoana-Mashabane said in her speech that the recent terror attacks in the world, including in BRICS countries, make it necessary for South Africa to re-emphasise that terrorism in all its forms and from whichever quarter can not be condoned.

In Delhi meeting a year ago, they (NSAs) had reached significant understanding on matters of security and counter terrorism, Singh said. It also called for establishing a "genuinely broad global counter-terrorism coalition", and underscored "the responsibility of all States to prevent financing of terrorist networks and terrorist actions from their territories".

The BRICS foreign ministers' call for the implementation of the Paris Agreement came just a couple of weeks after Trump announced the withdrawal of the U.S. from the Paris Agreement - a United Nations accord adopted by 195 countries at the COP21 climate conference in the capital of France in December 2015.

"I hope we can strengthen the cooperation among the five nations through the BRICS Games, at the same time make the athletes enhance understandings and deepen friendship", Kosilov said.

"In a meeting in Delhi past year they (the NSAs) had reached significant understanding on security and counter terrorism matters", said Singh, who represented external affairs minister Sushma Swaraj at the meeting who couldn't attend herself due to health issues.

Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said China in the coming year would look to "expand with more broad and wide-ranging co-operation in areas such as trade and commerce and investment".

"So China is actively taking part in worldwide cooperation against terrorism and in our own way China is making its contribution and playing our constrictive role". China is making its contribution and playing its constrictive role. Analysts say that Gen. Singh's remarks were yet another marker underscoring the thaw in China-Indian ties, following recent months of friction. On Azhar, China says evidence produced against the Pakistan-based terrorist is not enough. "We have also set up a joint working group on terrorism and joint working group on cyber space affairs and have parliamentary interactions", Wang said, adding that the group can also uphold the legitimate rights of developing countries. "However, it will only operate inside the five, while we need global ratings in order to attract world-renowned investors", he said. We have a common opinion.

"It is clear that we can not solve this problem by ourselves need a broad anti-terror front", he said.

"It is clear that we can not solve this problem by ourselves need a broad anti-terror front", he said Russian Federation will actively support UN Secretary-General António Guterres recent suggestion to the UN General Assembly to create a new UN office In New York to coordinate fight against terrorism.

The foreign ministers of the five BRICS nations met in Beijing on Sunday and Monday and noted with satisfaction that the Paris Agreement on climate change had come into force on November 4 past year. They opposed the use of chemical weapons by anyone, for any objective and under any circumstance.

They also backed "Afghan-led and Afghan-owned" national reconciliation programme and the ongoing global efforts for peace and reconstruction of the war-torn country.
