    India, China, Russia trilateral meet in Moscow on Friday

    India, China and Russia will discuss regional and international issues and ways to deepen cooperation among them during a crucial trilateral meeting in Moscow on Friday.

    "The three foreign ministers would exchange views on current regional and global issues. They will also review the progress of the existing mechanisms as also to explore newer avenues of cooperation under the IRC framework," Ministry of External Affairs said , adding minister S M Krishna will lead the Indian side for the 11th trilateral meeting.

    Noting that the meet was taking place on the heels of the fourth BRICS Summit here which was attended by the three ministers, the MEA said the trilateral will, inter-alia, help reinforce the goodwill and trust among the three countries as witnessed during the New Delhi Summit.

    This will be the seventh stand alone meeting of the three foreign ministers. The last two meetings were held in Wuhan,China in 2010 and Bengaluru in 2009.RIC, which was formed to forge cooperation among the three emerging economies, was overshadowed by the Brazil-Russia -India-China (BRIC) that emerged as an influential international grouping.

    Besides the strategic issues, RIC focused on matters relating to disaster relief, agriculture and public health,deepening communication among academic, industrial and business circles as well as promoting multilateral cooperation and democratic international relations.

    Krishna will also co-chair events later the same day which are being organised to commemorate the 65th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between India and the erstwhile Soviet Union/Russian Federation that falls on 13 April, the ministry said.

    India, Russia, China discuss Iran, N Korea, terrorism - The Economic Times

    MOSCOW: The Foreign Ministers of India, Russia and China held discussions on key regional and international issues, including situation in Iran, North Korean rocket launch and terrorism during a trilateral meet here.

    The RIC (Russia-India-China) ministerial meeting was attended by External Affairs Minister S M Krishna and his Russian and Chinese counterparts Sergey Lavrov and Yang Jiechi during which the three leaders condemned terrorism in all its forms.

    According to sources, the meeting reaffirmed that action must be taken not only against the perpetrators of terrorist attacks but also against their supporters and sponsors.

    The remarks came in the backdrop of increased pressure on Pakistan to act against terror organisations operating from its soil.

    While New Delhi has made it clear that India will judge Pakistan ties with action on terror, China too has in the recent past sought action against the terrorists of "East Turkistan Islamic Movement", who they alleged were trained on Pakistani soil.

    Official sources said the ministers condemned terrorism in all its forms and stressed "that there is no justification for any acts of terrorism on any grounds."

    The ministers also recognised Iran's right to peaceful use of nuclear energy and supported the resolution of the issues through political and diplomatic means and dialogue, including between the IAEA and Iran.

    In his address to the media, Krishna said, "the current international environment is witnessing dynamic shifts and volatile trends, which shall eventually delineate the contours of the future global scenario."

    "India, Russia and China believe that they have a major role to play in addressing the global challenges," Krishna said.

    He said the 11th trilateral meeting today was yet another important occasion for the three sides to exchange views on several issues of common interest.

    "We also reviewed cooperation among our three countries within the framework of other regional organisations such as BRICS, G-20, SCO and the East Asia Summit Process.

    "I am happy to note that the IRC Foreign Ministers mechanism has emerged as an important platform for close political coordination amongst the three countries. The dialogue, I felt, was stimulating and enriching," he said.

    He said within the IRC mechanism, the three countries also discussed the various thematic round tables and also ways to carry forward newer initiatives in areas where they share expertise and can harness potential benefits.

    Krishna also invited Lavrov and Yang Jiechi to visit India for the 12th trilateral meeting.
