China took over the rotating presidency of the BRICS from India after last year's Goa Summit.

"We firmly believe the economic condition of BRICS will be better under our joint effort", said Xiao in an interview on the sidelines of the second BRICS Finance Ministers and Central Bank Governors Meeting. "China opposes terror in all forms".

Climate change, trade and terrorism were high on the agenda Monday at a Beijing meeting of foreign affairs officials from Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa, known collectively as the BRICS nations. "With colleagues today including Indian colleagues, China shares the same position", foreign minister Wang Yi said while responding to a question from Hindustan Times on terror and differences on the issue within the bloc.

But Beijing has repeatedly rejected New Delhi's resolution at the United Nations to declare an global terrorist Pakistani militant leader, who India holds is the mastermind of Pathankot attack, saying there is not much evidence to prove his involvement.

The BRICS Foreign Ministers also extended their support for more balanced economic globalisation, rejected protectionism, and renewed their commitment to the promotion of global trade and investment "which is conducive to an equitable, inclusive, innovative, invigorated and interconnected world economy". His counterparts from Russia (Sergey Lavrov), South Africa (Maite Nkoana-Mashabane) and Brazil (Aloysio Nunes) attended the meet.

"The foreign ministers support the use of political and diplomatic means to resolve disputes in Libya and on the Korean Peninsula, and the promotion of preventative diplomacy built on common consensus", the communique said, according to a version posted on the Chinese foreign ministry website.

Earlier in the day, Singh said besides cooperating on financial issues, the BRICS agenda had witnessed steady expansion. "We have also set up a joint working group on terrorism and joint working group on cyber space affairs and have parliamentary interactions", Wang said, adding that the group can also uphold the legitimate rights of developing countries. Our national security advisors are scheduled to meet next month.

"They condemn terrorism in all its forms and manifestations wherever committed and by whomsoever".

China and India are both major countries with great influence, and that they should boost cooperation in the BRICS, the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) and all other multilateral frameworks to make contribution to peace and stability in the region and the world at large, Wang told his Indian counterpart.
