Brics Declaration News
China's policy intact, Xiamen Declaration 'nothing new,' says Pakistan's Interior Minister Ahsan Iqbal
"Pakistan was in attendance at the Heart of Asia conference. They (BRICS) have copied the declaration that was made then," Pakistan's Interior Minister Ahsan Iqbal said
The move to name some Pakistan-based terror groups in the BRICS declaration would "irritate" Islamabad and may strain its ties with China, a Chinese scholar said in a rare criticism of the government's decision.
Congress on Wednesday dismissed government's claim of isolation of Pakistan at the just-concluded Brics summit and asked what was it chest-thumping about.
The five-nation BRICS summit has come out with a strong condemnation of terrorism in all its forms and manifestations.
