Other BRICS leaders also spoke at the plenary session.

The fourth summit of BRICS opened here Thursday for disucssions on global governance and sustainable development and coordination of stands on major world and regional issues.

The summit comes at a crucial moment for the bloc, as the global economic recovery is still struggling against fragile financial systems, high public and private debt, high unemployment and the rising price of oil. Pressing issues, such as climate change, food security and energy security are also posing challenges to the world.

With the theme of "BRICS Partnership for Global Stability, Security and Prosperity," the BRIC leaders are expected to discuss "political, economic and social issues of mutual and international interest," according to the summit host, India.

At the end of the meeting, the BRICS leaders will meet the press, and issue a declaration on major world and regional issues.
