India's Refusal To Budge On Doklam Will Resonate Well

Doklam aftermath Modi’s Myanmar visit in focus

These issues, as well as support for economic recovery among the BRICS themselves, are expected to feature in discussions between Chinese President Xi Jinping, Brazilian President Michel Temer, Russian President Vladimir Putin, South African President Jacob Zuma, and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Xiamen. Whether this will be a regular feature or not is unclear, but China's decision to invite Egypt, Guinea, Mexico, Thailand and Tajikistan is a signal of the grouping's determination to be inclusive. "We see in the BRICS a space of dialogue between great countries and an opportunity to promote cooperation for the mutual benefit of our peoples", he said.

"Sixteen years later the BRICS share of the global GDP (gross domestic product) is bigger than every scenario I projected", he noted. India, which held a summit in Goa a year ago, had invited several neighbouring countries, Wang said.

" Doklam issue is between China and India and now the issue has been resolved and this serves the common interests of the two sides and this is good for both the sides".

Asian giants China and India have great potential for cooperation, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said on Wednesday, seeking to cast the neighbors' hard ties in a positive light ahead of a visit next week by India's prime minister.

Pentagon hasn't finalized Afghanistan troop numbers
While the Pentagon said the move was a step in increasing transparency, it did not provide counts of US troops in Iraq and Syria. The 8,400 "force management level" was set by the previous administration, which also used the previous accounting system.

"Both countries can not hold the other three, as in South Africa, Russia and Brazil, hostage to our narrow nationalistic rivalries", he said.

Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying said: "During multilateral meetings, arranging bilateral meetings is practice". Critics say China wants to expand the BRICS mechanism as a means to garner wider influence for itself.

In June this year, PTI reported that China proposed the BRICS Plus concept at the Foreign Ministers meeting "to enhance cooperation with various developing nations".

"There is huge investment potential among BRICS countries", said Gao.

The Seminoles also have late-season road tests against defending national champion Clemson (Nov. 11) and Florida (Nov. 25). I'm guessing neither Saban nor Fisher will break bread with a media person between now and the rest of the season.

The host country has invited the leaders of five other nations to the three-day summit.

The BRICS countries represent more than two-fifths of the world's population and occupy just under a third of the earth's territory.

On concerns that only India and China have been registering faster growth in the BRICS bloc while the economies of Russia, Brazil and South Africa remained sluggish, he said their recovery is not easy as the world economic recovery is sluggish and the impact of the global financial crisis is still lingering.

"If the BRICS countries recover economically in the near future, their voice will further have significant impact", he concluded.

Mumbai rains: Here's how Mumbaikars turned heroes to help stranded people
In view of the heavy rains in Maharashtra, Northern Railways on Wednesday cancelled 16 trains to and from the state. Private carrier Jet Airways cancelled 19 flights out of the city, including some of its global services.

Similarly it is true, for India and China, that there exist multiple points of divergence between the two countries, but that is also exactly why sitting on the same table is important.
