BRICS Countries Need to Intensify Their Collective Fight Against Terrorism
Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla said that BRICS countries need to intensify their collective fight against terrorism which poses the biggest threat to humankind. Virtually addressing the meeting of the 6th BRICS Parliamentary Forum, Mr Birla said, as people’s representatives, parliamentarians can no longer be silent bystanders and they must unite to fight the challenges of terrorism and violent extremism
The BRICS grouping of like-minded countries aims to promote peace, security, development and cooperation in the world. It also aims at making a positive impact on the development of humanity and establishing a more equitable and fair world
"It is highly satisfying that over the past years the Academic Forum has become a respected platform for the exchange of opinions among the leading academic centres of the five BRICS countries"
The conflict coincides with Russia’s presidency of two key international forums: BRICS, a grouping of major non-Western powers Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa, and the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO). This presents Moscow with both a challenge and an opportunity
The Sixth BRICS Parliamentary Forum will be held under the Russian BRICS Chairmanship on October 27 via video conferencing. This year’s theme is based on ‘Global Stability, Shared Security and Innovative Growth: Parliamentary Dimension.’
