India, China & Russia to discuss US trade policies
Along the sidelines of the G20 Summit in Osaka, Japan, the leaders of BRICS are likely to discuss ways to oppose the “unilateralist” and “protectionist” trade policies of the US. China’s Assistant Foreign Minister Zhang Jun stated, “Given the current international landscape, the meeting among the three leaders is also of significance. As you know, China’s relations with Russia and India are showing sound momentum of growth.” Given the fact that US has withdrawn the GSP benefits given to India, China is optimistic that India will support China, which is embroiled in a trade war with US.
Talks will also be held on other areas like cooperation on economy, political issues, security and people-to-people exchanges among the grouping to further deepen cooperation and uphold the good momentum of BRICS cooperation, he said.
