    Indian Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj is on a five-day visit to South Africa to attend the BRICS foreign ministers’ meet. In her address, she said that the rule-based world order is facing severe challenges and that countries should join hands to ensure that the benefits of globalization are not concentrated in the hands of a few.

    New Delhi (Sputnik): Indian Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj has called for joint action by the BRICS countries to fight against the menace of terrorism, particularly terror-financing and money laundering. Addressing the BRICS foreign ministers' meet, Sushma Swaraj said that multilateralism, international trade and the rule-based world order is facing strong headwinds and that India is willing to contribute towards enriching intra-BRICS cooperation to counter such challenges.

    "Prime Minister Modi had given a call for a BRICS counter-terrorism strategy for joint-action with a focus on money-laundering, terrorist-finance, cyber-space and de-radicalization as our priorities," Indian Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj said in her address.

    Noting that the challenges to long-term global growth continue to persist despite showing signs of recovery, Swaraj was of the view that ensuring the benefits of globalization are shared widely remains a challenge.

    Sushma Swaraj also held a bilateral meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov on the sidelines of the BRICS foreign ministers' meeting.
