The BRICS foreign ministers' meeting is a precursor to a chain of meetings of BRICS officials including the National Security Advisers (NSAs) meeting to be held later next month ahead of the September summit.

Slower-than-expected global economic recovery, policy uncertainties in developed countries, de-globalization and world protectionism caused a complex economic environment for BRICS, Xiao said. "Together, they produce more than one-third of global cereal production, with Russian Federation becoming the largest wheat exporter in the world..."

While speaking at the first BRICS summit in Beijing on Monday, Minister of State for External Affairs VK Singh urged the member countries not to differentiate between "good and bad" terrorists - in an apparent reference to Pakistan, PTI reported.

Without directly referring to the United States, the BRICS foreign ministers also called upon the "developed countries" to "fulfil their commitment (made in Paris Accord) to provide necessary financing, technology transfer and capacity building support to developing countries".

Backing Singh, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said China was opposed to terrorism in all forms and it is also a victim of terrorism.

"There is one climate and for future generations we must employ every effort at our disposal to reverse the effects of climate change", she said.

"The foreign ministers support the use of political and diplomatic means to resolve disputes in Libya and on the Korean Peninsula, and the promotion of preventative diplomacy built on common consensus", the communique said, according to a version posted on the Chinese foreign ministry website.

India, today, pitched for a greater engagement with BRICS nations which have steadily expanded its agenda from financial matters to security and counter terrorism issues facing the global community. "The Brics Joint Working Group on Counter-Terrorism concluded its meeting in May 2017", he said.

"At present the global situation has complexities and also factors of instability and it's right for the BRICS to speak its voice, which is very good", Xi said.

"I am sure this year under China's presidency, we will meet the expectation as BRICS countries continue to be the driving force not only in economy, but also increasingly in ideas and in proposals for worldwide governance", Paulo said.

Chinese President Xi Jinping sent a congratulatory letter to the 2017 BRICS Games which opened in Guangzhou on Saturday.

"Your chairmanship certainly contributed to the strength. and to increasing its reputation as a factor of stability", Lavrov told Xi.
