Goa: Chi­nese Pres­i­dent Xi Jin­ping met Rus­sian Pres­i­dent Vladimir Putin in Goa, In­dia on Satur­day. The two sides vowed to ad­vance bi­lat­eral ties and boost co­op­er­a­tion within mul­ti­lat­eral frame­works. Mr Xi ar­rived in the west­ern In­dian state of Goa ear­lier in the day for the eighth sum­mit of the emerg­ing­mar­ket bloc of BRICS, which groups Brazil, Rus­sia, In­dia, China and South Africa.

He re­called that lead­ers of the five coun­tries met last month on the sidelines of the 11th sum­mit of the Group of 20 ma­jor economies in the east­ern Chi­nese city of Hangzhou, where they had an in-depth ex­change of views on pro­mot­ing BRICS co-oper­a­tion and reached many im­por­tant con­sen­suses. China, said the pres­i­dent, hopes that the BRICS sum­mit in Goa will achieve pos­i­tive re­sults and in­ject new im­pe­tus into BRICS co-oper­a­tion. As China will hold the ro­tat­ing chair of BRICS in 2017, Bei­jing stands ready to work with Rus­sia and all other par­ties con­cerned to make a suc­cess of the ninth sum­mit, he added. Not­ing that both China and Rus­sia are per­ma­nent mem­bers of the UN Se­cu­rity Coun­cil and ma­jor emerg­ing-mar­ket coun­tries, Mr Xi said the two coun­tries should strengthen co-or­di­na­tion and co-oper­a­tion within the United Na­tions, the Shang­hai Co-oper­a­tion Or­gan­i­sa­tion, BRICS and other mul­ti­lat­eral frame­works. The two sides, he added, should jointly pro­mote a more just and rea­son­able in­ter­na­tional or­der and safe­guard the in­ter­ests of the emerg­ing-mar­ket coun­tries and de­vel­op­ing coun­tries.
