MOSCOW, October 17. /TASS/. The BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa) summit showed that cooperation between the countries participants of that informal association is becoming more substantive, a senior Russian senator said.
The head of the international affairs committee of the Federation Council, the upper house of Russia’s parliament, Konstantin Kosachev, was commenting on his Facebook page on the results of the meeting of the BRICS leaders in the Indian state of Goa.
Kosachev said the final declaration of the summit and the joint plan of actions to implement the declaration, which concretizes the organization’s work for the upcoming year, show "the set for a substantive rather than declarative style of work."
The parliamentarian underscored that the summit demonstrated activation of bilateral ties between BRICS members, first of all Russia with India and China, "and priority in cooperation is given to high-tech spheres - space, IT industry, construction of high-speed railroads."
BRICS members also showed common approaches to the fight against global terrorism and to the situations in Syria and Afghanistan, Kosachev said.
