XIAMEN, China Ė Brazilís President Michel Temer proposed on Monday the creation of an Intelligence Forum at the BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) summit, through which the five members of the group could intensify the fight against terror.
Michel Temer said in a statement published by his office that this mechanism, approved by the other members in the final declaration after the summit, would be an additional contribution to their efforts to prevent terrorist acts.
Temer condemned the recent nuclear test by North Korea in his speech and highlighted Brazilís participation in the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons, which is to take shape later this month, saying nuclear disarmament is the most effective guarantee against proliferation.
He advocated for a change in the composition of the United Nations Security Council in order to better legitimize its decisions on international security, another point that China and Russia, permanent members of the UNSC, supported in the summitís final declaration.
On regional issues, Temer warned about the political, economic and social crisis in neighboring Venezuela and argued for a peaceful solution without infringing upon its sovereignty.
Within BRICS, Temer championed a reduction in bureaucracy in mutual foreign trade, stressed the potential of the New Development Bank created by the five countries and supported the creation of new structures to unite them better.
He underlined the need to simplify export and import procedures and speed up government processes in his speech in the presence of the leaders from the BRICS nations.
China was represented by President Xi Jinping, Russia by President Vladimir Putin, South Africa by President Jacob Zuma and India by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
