Leaders of the so-called "Bric" countries, namely Brazil, Russia, India and China, pledged here on Wednesday to enhance coordination and strive to play a positive role in international affairs.

The "Bric" countries share common or similar views on many important international and regional issues, said Chinese President Hu Jintao while meeting with the three leaders here.

Enhanced dialogue and cooperation between the four nations are conducive to safeguarding world peace and promoting common development, and in the common interest of the international community, he added.

Hu also called for the four countries to strengthen communication and coordination on some important and pressing issues of common concern, to enable them to play a constructive role in international affairs.

Hu's remarks were welcomed by the three other leaders, who agreed that the four nations should boost high-level contacts and consult each other on major international issues in a bid to play a more positive role in global affairs.

Hu was invited by Fukuda to attend the Outreach Session of the Group of Eight (G8) summit, which discussed pressing international issues such as the world economy, climate change and energy security.

On Wednesday, the Chinese leader met with Russian President Dmitry Medvedev, his Brazilian counterpart Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva and Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on the sidelines of the outreach session of the G8 summit, held in the northern Japanese resort of Toyako.

Also on Wednesday, the final day of the three-day summit, Hu met briefly with Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, British Prime Minister Gordon Brown and Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi, who came to attend an outreach working session on climate change and energy security.
