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
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.
