BRICS cooperation promotes worldwide dialogue beyond connected countries
The BRICS Summit has generated a series of actions that has peaked a widespread interest. Some critics say China is trying to strengthen its leadership within the BRICS cooperation and develop the mechanism into a platform to exert global influence.
A Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson responded to that concern at the regular press conference on Tuesday.
Geng Shuang said the initiatives and proposals by the Chinese side, including during the BRICS Summit in Xiamen, are aimed at promoting cooperation among BRICS countries. He also said China works to develop solidarity and development among emerging market economies and developing countries.
BRICS has maintained openness and transparency while pursuing mutual benefits and win-win results, Geng said, adding that the cooperation neither targets a third party nor confronts anyone.
