Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday called for unity among developing nations of the world - especially members of BRICS - at international forums. Speaking at BRICS Leaders' Informal Meeting on the sidelines of G20 Summit in Buenos Aires, PM Modi highlighted why the world needs to unite against the menace of terrorism and financial crimes. "Terrorism and radicalism are a threat to the world. Those who commit financial crimes are also a big threat. We have to work together against black money," he said.
BRICS is an acronym for Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa - countries that have come together to work towards their common goals and interests. While it has significant clout in global policy matters, the G20 (Group of 20) is a wider forum which also includes the UK, US, EU, France, Germany, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Saudi Arabia, South Korea, Argentina, Australia, Canada and Turkey. The 2018 edition of the G20 Summit is being held in Buenos Aires and is being attended by top leaders from around the world.
