SCO and BRICS summits scheduled for July may be postponed due to pandemic 26.05.2020 14:00

According to the statement of the Russian ambassador to China Andrei Denisov, the coronavirus continues to make adjustments, so the start of the summits of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization and BRICS scheduled for July in St. Petersburg will most likely have to be postponed to a later date.

The coronavirus pandemic influenced the working meetings of Russian and Chinese politicians and the events of representatives of the country's top leadership.

Thus, President of China Xi Jinping was invited as an honored guest to events in honor of the 75th anniversary of the Victory. However, plans had to be changed by rescheduling the meeting.

Despite the inability to travel between countries due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Russia and China are trying to keep in touch. Both sides are looking for new platforms for contacts between management.

The Russian and Chinese defense ministers recently held a teleconference meeting, recalls BRICS TV.
