BRICS blues and India’s concern

| Last Updated:

New Delhi:

Yet another summit of BRICS leaders has taken place—this time in Johannesburg in South Africa—where familiar resolves have been voiced and terrorism has been condemned in no uncertain terms. But the world is where it was a year ago when the five member-nations (Brazil, Russia, India China, and South Africa) issued a declaration in Xiamen in China which voiced the same sentiments.

It is not as though the grouping is helpless but in the name of the sovereign rights of nations it is not prepared to act to protect its resolves either as a grouping or as individual countries that command clout. There is no dearth of expressions of concern but no action on the ground.
