Should speak with one voice on issues concerning international peace and development: Xi Jinping

Xiamen, Sep 4 (IBNS): Addressing the ninth BRICS Summit, Chinese President Xi Jinping, said all nations should speak in a unified voice on issues that concerns international peace and development, media reports said.

Xi said: "We should speak with one voice and jointly present our solutions to issues concerning international peace & development."

China is hosting the ninth BRICS Summit which is scheduled to occur between September 3 and September 5.

The Chinese President said the country will launch a plan of 500 million for BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa) countries to facilitate policy exchange and practical cooperation in economy and trade.

Speaking about unity among BRICS nations, Xi said: "Our closer ties with rest of the world require that we five countries play a more active part in global governance."

Probably the most important picture clicked at the BRICS Summit in 2017 was when Prime Minister Narendra Modi shook hands with his Chinese counterpart, Xi Jinping, after the months long Doklam standoff between the two countries came to an end.

PM Modi said: "Our women’s empowerment programmes are productivity multipliers that mainstream women in nation building."

"We need to mainstream our youth in our joint initiatives; scaled up cooperation in skill development and exchange of best practices" Modi added.

In a significant shift to the diplomatic relation, both India and China have agreed to disengage border personnel at Doklam in Sikkim border, said India's Ministry of External Affairs.

The Ministry of External Affairs of India said in a statement on last Monday that both the countries had communicated with each other regarding the Doklam issue in the last few weeks.

"In recent weeks, India and China have maintained diplomatic communication in respect of the incident at Doklam. During these communications, we were able to express our views and convey our concerns and interests" the statement reads.

"On this basis, expeditious disengagement of border personnel at the face-off site at Doklam has been agreed to and is on-going" the MEA added.

The ongoing military standoff  has heightened tension at the Bhutan-India-China tri-junction in Doklam, a disputed territory claimed by both Bhutan and China, where the Indian Army personnel have reached to stop China from building a road.
