Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday addressed the BRICS Summit via video conferencing and said, “terrorism is the biggest problem the world is facing today. We must ensure that the countries that support and assist the terrorists are also blamed, and this problem must be tackled in an organized manner.”
Addressing the summit of five-nation grouping BRICS via videoconferencing, Modi said, “In 2021, BRICS will complete 15 years. Our ‘sherpas’ can make a report to evaluate the various decisions taken by us in the past years.”
The 12th BRICS summit, hosted by Russian President Vladimir Putin, was also attended by Chinese President Xi Jinping, Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro, and South African President Cyril Ramaphosa.
The BRICS (Brazil-Russia-India-China-South Africa) is known as an influential bloc that represents over 3.6 billion people, or half of the world’s population. The BRICS countries have a combined GDP of USD 16.6 trillion.
