13:58, March 29, 2012

NEW DELHI, March 29 (Xinhua) -- The Fourth BRICS Summit started its restricted session here Thursday morning, with leaders of five major emerging countries gathering to discuss political, economic and social issues of mutual and international interest.

Leaders of Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa took a group photo before starting the session at the Taj Palace hotel, which will be followed by a plenary session later in the morning.

Chinese diplomats said earlier that Chinese President Hu Jintao will elaborate on China's position on global governance, sustainable development, and cooperation among BRICS countries at the summit, which features the theme of BRICS countries' commitment to the partnership of stability, security and prosperity.

Agreements to boost up trade cooperation among BRICS countries and a joint declaration were expected to be signed after the plenary session.

The BRICS countries have become an increasingly important force in the world arena. In the past years, the nations have played an important and constructive role in tackling the global financial crisis and climate change and facilitating economic recovery.
