MOSCOW, May 26. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin meets on Tuesday with high representatives of the BRICS nations in charge of security, who are taking part in the fifth annual security conference of the five countries - Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa.
The conference devoted to regional and international security will be held in Moscow in the context of Russia’s term of rotating presidency in BRICS that started out in April, Putin’s press secretary Dmitry Peskov said.
Russia is represented at the meeting by the Secretary of the Security Council, Nikolai Patrushev.
The Kremlin says Russia targets its efforts as the current coordinator in BRICS at a further transformation of the group from a dialogue forum and an instrument for coordinating positions on a selected scope of problems into a full-fledged mechanism of strategic cooperation on the crucial problems of world politics and economy, as well as at affirming BRICS as an inseparable part of the system of global governance.
BRICS is an informal association that was founded in June 2006. Its first summit meeting was held in June 2009 in the Russian city of Yekaterinburg in the Urals
Summits have been held annually since on an alternate basis in each member-state. The previous summit was held in 2014 in Fortaleza, Brazil.
Russia will host the 7th summit of the association in the city of Ufa, western Urals, on July 9 and July 10.
