The foreign minister expressed hope that further progress would be made at the summit in Brazil to create a mechanism of closer coordination between BRICS countries.
After the summit, Xi Jinping will also attend a meeting between Chinese and Latin American and Caribbean nations' leaders in Brazil. From July 17 to 23, he will pay state visits to Argentina, Venezuela and Cuba.
