MOSCOW, March 27. /TASS/. The first parliamentary summit of BRICS may take place in June in Russia, Russian Federation Council’s International Affairs Committee chairman Konstantin Kosachev told journalists on Friday.
"There are plans to hold a BRICS [Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa] parliamentary summit in Moscow in June this year," Kosachev stressed.
For now, only Chinese parliamentarians have given preliminary agreement to participate in the summit, he noted. "I have an order from the Federation Council chairperson to establish direct contacts with national delegations of India, Brazil and South Africa, in order to get an understanding about the colleagues’ plans," Kosachev noted.
If all sides agree to participate in the summit, Russia will organize a meeting in Moscow on preparations for such an event.
