PM Modi presided over the BRICS conference
In the last two months, several meetings of foreign, defense and national security advisers of the SCO have been held in Dushanbe. Just a few days ago, the 13th summit of BRICS countries has concluded, which was presided over by the Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi. This is the second time that Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi chaired the summit of BRICS. However, this 13th summit, which took place in the shadow of the Afghan crisis, shook India in many ways and made three things clear. India is now at the center of the first Afghan crisis. Secondly, Russia, which was angry about its proximity to America, is now standing together. The world has understood the move of China-Pakistan in the third Afghan crisis.
The main points that came out in this conference. They are that the key to the fight against the Taliban seems to be in India’s hand and India can play an important role in bringing peace in Afghanistan. Russia seems to be separating from the trio of China-Pakistan and Russia being formed regarding Afghanistan and India-Russia have started coming on one platform. The third important thing is that the mask has come off the faces of China and Pakistan and the world seems to be isolating both these countries.
PM Modi reminds of Counter Terrorism Action Plan
In the opening remark itself, the PM reminded the BRICS countries of the Counter Terrorism Action Plan. Explained the need to take this action plan forward and called for the common resources of BRICS countries to be used to fight terrorism. This was a summit in which India’s all-time friend, Russia also stood with Russia’s President Vladimir Putin, in the concern expressed – Afghanistan should not become a threat to neighboring countries. Afghanistan should not become a source of terrorism and drug smuggling. In fact, apart from India-Russia, BRICS countries also include China, Brazil and South Africa.
