On September 3 evening, the BRICS leaders will attend a cultural festival and an exhibition, followed by a meeting with the BRICS business council. The typhoon also caused considerable disruption to the flights. BRICS includes Communist-ruled China, authoritarian Russia and the democracies of India, Brazil and South Africa; China's economic powerhouse, a rising India, and Russian, Brazilian and South African economies hit hard by weak prices of export commodities.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi emplanes for China to attend the 9th BRICS Summit.

Xi claimed that the bloc's "win-win" philosophy of cooperation is gaining appreciation around the world. "We have laid the foundation and put in place the framework".

"The two leaders agreed to stick to the goal of denuclearization on the Korean Peninsula and keep close communication and coordination to deal with the new situation", the report says. "In terms of BRICS cooperation, decisions are made through consultation (and) not by one country".

She added, "China is willing to work with Pakistan and other countries to enhance our cooperation in counterterrorism".

"Given difference in national conditions, history and cultures, it is only natural we may have some differences in pursuing our cooperation", he said.

Interestingly, China's clarion call for "globalisation 2.0" under the aegis of its Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) has invited scepticism due to its undemocratic Communist credentials and the unilateral and hegemonic nature of its Silk Road revival blueprint. India had protested to CPEC as it passes through Pakistan-Occupied Kashmir.

Microsoft pushes AR/VR features with upcoming Windows 10 update
Its predecessor, Windows 10 Anniversary Update, a k a 1607 for July 2016, didn't begin rolling out until August . With the launch date confirmed for October, Microsoft is missing its very first deadline under the new system.

"This issue may be resolved by force or by putting the greatest pressure, including economic pressure, on North Korea in the future. I don't think this is an appropriate topic to be discussed at BRICS Summit", Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying had said ahead of the Summit.

"Only openness delivers progress, and only inclusiveness sustains such progress", he said.

The prime minister had also said he was looking forward to engaging with leaders of nine other countries, including BRICS partners, in an Emerging Markets and Developing Countries Dialogue, being hosted by Xi on September 5.

"We BRICS countries are committed to upholding global peace and contributing to the worldwide security order", the Global Times quoted Xi as saying. They will not only be a boost to the BRICS economies but will also promote integration between the countries, according to Putin. "Rather, we should make joint efforts to find solutions", said Xi.

He said the bloc was committed to to observing the principles of the UN Charter and global law.

Xi also said BRICS had a role to play in upholding world peace.

In response to critics Xi said the summit was more than a "talk shop".
