Durban: Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Thursday flew out of Durban after attending the two-day BRICS summit, where he also interacted with Chinese President Xi Jinping.

The leaders of BRICS countries -- Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa -- gathered here for the summit whose theme was "BRICS and Africa: Partnership for Development, Integration and Industrialisation".

Manmohan Singh had two significant meetings with Xi -- one on the margins of the BRICS Summit on Wednesday and the other a more structured two-way engagement hours later.

Xi told Singh China`s leadership will continue to pursue the positive groundwork laid down by its predecessors to improve ties between the two Asian neighbours, notwithstanding the long-pending border dispute.
