Modi and Jinping shook hands for the first time after India and China announced the resolution of the 73-day-long Dokalam standoff.

Speaking at the plenary session of BRICS summit, Modi said, "We are in mission-mode to eradicate poverty; to ensure the health, sanitation, skills, food security, gender equality, energy, and education."

The Prime Minister also said that the BRICS has developed a robust framework for cooperation and contributed to stability and growth in a world drifting towards uncertainty.

During the summit, Modi would look forward to having 'productive discussions and positive outcomes' with leaders of the grouping to support the agenda for a stronger partnership among the member countries.
