PM Manmohan Singh will brainstorm with leaders of China, Russia, Brazil and South Africa on several key issues,
including a US-backed move for fresh sanctions on Iran over its nuclear programme, at the IBSA and BRIC Summits here.
The BRIC nations -- Brazil,
Russia, India and China -- are set to wrestle with
international pressure to back sanctions against Iran when
they hold the second-ever summit in Brazil at the end of the
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.
The rise of BRIC countries represents a fundamental shift in global economy and the developing world needs a legitimate seat at the table so that shared challenges are better addressed, a powerful US Senator has said.
