In a first, BRICS countries slammed Pakistan without naming it. They condemned Pakistan-based terror groups on Monday, 4 September. (Read the entire declaration here.)

 BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) is a group of emerging economies.  

The 2017 BRICS summit began on 4 September. As reported by The Times Of India, the BRICS Xiamen Declaration specifically named the Pakistan-based Haqqani network, Lashkar-e-Taiba, Jaish-e-Mohammed and the Taliban.

Also, the BRICS members called for greater efficiency in the designation of terrorists. This is particularly significant because China has been blocking designating Jaish-e-Mohammed Chief Masood Azhar.

BRICS members made it clear that they condemn terrorism in all its forms.

After the declaration was made public, A MEA-Ministry of External Affairs, the spokeswoman said, “All BRICS leaders came up very strongly in condemning terror in all its manifestations. You can see that in seven paragraphs of the declaration.”

“We deplore all terrorist attacks worldwide, including the attacks in BRICS countries, and condemn terrorism in all its forms and manifestations wheresoever committed and by whomsoever and stress that there can be no justification,” said the ‘BRICS Xiamen Declaration’.

The MEA spokesperson further added that the members in BRICS countries had been victims of terrorism and today’s declaration acknowledges that we must work collectively.

PM Modi also called for joint action on terrorism. He will meet Chinese President Xi Jinping on 5 September; trade and terror are likely to be on the agenda. It will also be the first exchange between the two leaders after the recent Doklam Standoff.
