- Story Text: Russian President Vladimir Putin arrived at Xiamen Gaoqi International Airport on Sunday (September 3) to attend this year's BRICS summit.
Global heads of state including India's Narendra Modi and Egypt's Abdel Fattah al-Sisi are also expected to join the three-day summit on September 3-5, giving China as host its latest chance to position itself as a bulwark of globalisation in the face of U.S. President Donald Trump's "America First" agenda.
BRICS leaders will be joined by observer countries Thailand, Mexico, Egypt, Guinea and Tajikistan, and officials will discuss a "BRICS Plus" plan to possibly expand the bloc to new members.
