“This visit demonstrates China’s special attention to interaction with BRICS countries,” he said. “It aims to boost co-operation between China and these states and to develop partnerships within the BRICS assembly.”

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.
