“China is confident that with the concerted efforts of all parties, the Summit will achieve success and scale a new high level for BRICS relations,” Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying said.
“Preparation for BRICS Summit in Xiamen is underway. Preparation has proceeded in an orderly faction and has reached an advanced stage,” Hua added.
