Moscow, April 13 (IANS) The foreign ministers of India, China and Russia Friday held their 11th trilateral meeting and underlined their major role in addressing key global challenges against the backdrop of dynamic shifts in the world order.
India's External Affairs Minister S.M. Krishna held talks with his counterparts, Yang Jiechi of China and Sergei Lavrov of Russia on a wide range of international issues and decided to continue close political coordination.
The three ministers reviewed cooperation among their countries within the framework of other regional organisations such as BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa), G-20 and the East Asia Summit Process.
"The current international environment is witnessing dynamic shifts and volatile trends, which shall eventually delineate the contours of the future global scenario," Krishna said at a joint media interaction after the meeting.
"India, Russia and China believe that they have a major role to play in addressing the global challenges," he said.
India will host the next Russia-India-China trilateral meeting in 2013.
The trilateral was formed to forge cooperation and to build trust among the three emerging economies, but its importance has waned slightly after the BRIC grouping of the four emerging economies was launched in 2009. South Africa joined the BRIC grouping in 2011, changing the nomenclature of the grouping to BRICS.
