He told his BRIC counterparts the four countries have constantly enhanced cooperation in a more defined direction and within an increasingly mature mechanism. In this way, he says the four countries can increase their influence.

The foreign ministers held discussion on several issues, including cooperation among emerging market countries, the reform of the international development cooperation, global economic governance, as well as international cooperation.
