Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi will also attend the meeting in Washington, which will be formally announced soon.
Sources said that apart from attending the BRICS Conference, Narendra Modi will also hold bilateral talks with US President Joe Biden. The agenda of both these meetings are very much important — will be on Afghanistan and the role of Pakistan and China in it.
China, Russia, Iran, and Pakistan have become one regarding the recent development in Afghanistan. China has even announced a $3.1 crore package to the new Taliban government. With its growing proximity to the Taliban, the United States suspects that Al-Qaeda and ISIS will re-emerge. Meanwhile, India suspects a new round of terrorism in the Kashmir valley.
