2017/07/24

Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Lu Kang announces:

The 7th Meeting of BRICS High Representatives for Security Issues will be held in Beijing from July 27 to 28. State Councilor Yang Jiechi will host the meeting. This is one of a series of meetings under China's presidency of BRICS this year. Minister of State Security David Mahlobo of South Africa, Minister Sérgio Etchegoyen of the Office of Institutional Security of the Presidency of Brazil, Security Council Secretary Nikolai Patrushev of the Russian Federation, and National Security Adviser Ajit Doval of India have confirmed to attend the meeting.

The Meeting of BRICS High Representatives for Security Issues, as a major platform for BRICS countries to discuss and carry out cooperation in the political security field, is very important in enhancing strategic communication, political mutual trust and international influence of BRICS countries. As agreed, this meeting will focus on global governance, counter-terrorism, cyber security and energy security, international and regional hotspots, and national security and development.

At present, against the background of the intricate global geo-political factors, escalating regional hotspots, rising cyber security threats and terrorism, and intertwined traditional and non-traditional security challenges, China hopes that this meeting will help safeguard the common interests of the BRICS countries, move forward political and security cooperation between BRICS countries, strengthen the BRICS solidarity and influence, and make good preparations for the Xiamen Summit in September.
