Russia calls for strengthening the cooperation between BRICS states in political, economic and humanitarian spheres, President Vladimir Putin has said.

The president expressed his assurance that the coming BRICS summit would promote the cooperation between BRICS states and help to find solutions to the modern challenges.

Russian President has proposed that small and medium-sized enterprises in the five BRICS emerging economies integrate their online resources to boost cooperation.

Putin said a Russia-drafted BRICS Strategy for Economic Partnership had been successfully implemented in recent years. He added he expected more efforts on reenergizing trade and investment across BRICS nations to be made at next week’s summit in the Chinese city of Xiamen.

Russia also proposes adopting a deal on information security by governments of five BRICS nations to promote cooperation, Vladimir Putin has announced.

"I am convinced that the Xiamen Summit will help invigorate our countries' efforts towards finding solutions to the challenges of the 21st century and will propel cooperation within BRICS to a higher level," Putin said.

The summit of BRICS states – Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa – will be held on September 3-5 in the southeastern Chinese city of Xiamen.
