India has agreed to attend a virtual summit of leaders of the Brazil-Russia-India-China-South Africa grouping, likely to be held at the end of June, reported The Hindu quoting unnamed sources.
The developments came weeks after the visit of Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi to Delhi.
The report added that the dates of the meeting is yet to be finalized, however discussions are ongoing to hold it on June 23-24.
This will be the first time major global event that will see Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the same platform as Russian President Vladimir Putin, Chinese President Xi Jinping and leaders of Brazil and South Africa since the Ukraine war began.
India hosted the summit last year virtually due to the Covid restrictions.
