The meeting of the five leaders of the BRICS countries — Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa — in Ufa, Russia, is “seen as vitally important to strengthen relations among the nations”.

bricsThe daily said that the summit agenda included ways to “promote partnership among its five nations, represent the real efforts they’ve made, and give clear guidance for future development”.

It said that the five countries have witnessed great progress in its cooperation, especially the setting up of the BRICS Bank, known as New Development Bank (NDB). “It has proved the feasibility and efficiency of its cooperation.”

The daily went on to say that with a total population of 3 billion, BRICS nations’ development and economic growth will surely affect the whole world in a positive way.
