Moscow: Russia, a key member of the BRIC grouping, on Thursday said it hoped the April 15-16 summit of the bloc also involving Brazil, India and China will contribute to formation of a new polycentric world order based on justice and democratic values.

"We expect that the outcome of summit will contribute to the strengthening of the constructive role of BRIC as an important stabilising factor in the international affairs and a reliable pillar in the formation of polycentric, fair and democratic world order," Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman Andrei Nesterenko said.

Leaders of Brazil, Russia, India and China (BRIC), including Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Russian President Dmitry Medvedev, are scheduled to meet in Brazil for their second formal summit in the BRIC format on April 15-16.

At the weekly Foreign Ministry briefing, Nesterenko said that on the sidelines of the BRIC summit, senior security officials, economists, bankers and political analysts will also meet to discuss closer cooperation within the grouping of four fastest emerging economies of the world.

"This rich programme indicates the expansion of the spectrum of partnership within the BRIC," he said.

The first full-blooded stand-alone BRIC summit was hosted by Russian President Medvedev in June last year in Yekaterinburg city.

In the follow-up to the Yekaterinburg summit, the BRIC Agriculture Ministers met here last month to forge an alliance to combat global hunger and ensure food security.
