MOSCOW, May 26. /TASS/. Common approaches in the field of information security and sharing experiences in countering the pressure on the world stage topped the agenda of the meeting of high representatives of BRICS member-countries on security issues on Tuesday.
According to the press service of the Russian Security Council, the meeting also focused on combating terrorism.
"During the discussion, the sides declared development of common approaches to international security," the press service said.
"The parties also shared experiences of cooperation to counter unilateral sanctions and attempts to interfere in the internal affairs of sovereign countries," the Russian Security Council said. "The participants in the meeting noted that cooperation within the framework of "the five" was aimed at building a multi-polar system of international relations based on the principles of justice and equality and renunciation of the outdated practice of the bloc diplomacy," the press service said.
