BRICS Summit: Chinese Prez Jinping meets PM Modi, recounts Panchsheel, its principles

Russian President Vladimir Putin warned Tuesday of a global

"I believe my colleagues have said from this podium that as a host China will arrange meetings with participating leaders", foreign ministry spokesperson Geng Shuang said.

Xi and Modi's meeting came following a military stand-off lasting more than two months after more than 270 armed Indian troops with two bulldozers crossed the boundary in mid-June into the Dong Lang (Doklam) area in the Chinese territory to obstruct infrastructure construction.

BRICS countries have actively carried out cooperation among their legislatures, political parties, young people, think tanks and local regions, Xi added.

Xi appeared to rebuke the United States's resistance to worldwide pacts - including the Paris climate accord - in a separate speech earlier on Tuesday to leaders of Brics and other developing countries.

He said both leaders laid out "a very positive view of where our relationship could go" and that there was "detailed discussions of mechanisms that could help both countries really go forward".

PM Modi was the third leader to reach the convention centre, venue of the 9th BRICS Summit in this port city.

"The two sides should respect each other, seek common ground while reserving differences and safeguard the peace and tranquility of the border areas", Geng said, quoting Xi.

During the meeting, Modi congratulated the Chinese President on successfully executing the BRICS summit.

He said that China intends to better combine the Belt and Road Initiative and the China-Africa cooperation plans set forth at the FOCAC Johannesburg summit with the AU's Agenda 2063. "Details of the meeting we will release in due course", he said. No statement on the dispute at Doklam was issued by either side indicating willingness in the establishment of both countries to discuss future ties and not be stuck on clashes of the past, no matter how recent.

Jaishankar said: "Both of us (India and China) know what happened".

The Prime Minister and other leaders of BRICS bloc adopted the Xiamen Declaration at the ninth edition of the BRICS Summit on Monday.

For the first time, the BRICS nations named Pakistan-based groups such as Lashkar-e-Taiba, Jaish-e-Mohammed and Haqqani networks in a strongly worded declaration.
