The BRICS are said to be the economic superpowers of the 21st century, and the grouping was first proposed by Jim O’ Neill an analyst for Goldman Sachs. Since then, China and India have powered through with growth rates in excess of 7% while countries like Russia, South Africa and Brazil stumbled along.

One of the international issues was how the five-member influential bloc would deal with terrorism, a key call by India which has suffered such violence in recent weeks. The meeting adopted the Goa Declaration on 16th October, bringing the meeting to a fruitful end. Next year’s BRICS summit will be hosted by China.

US Strategic Command systems detected a failed North Korean ballistic missile launch Saturday evening near the northwestern city of Kusong, the Pentagon said.

“We strongly condemn this and North Korea’s other recent missile tests, which violate UN Security Council resolutions explicitly prohibiting North Korea’s launches using ballistic missile technology,” Pentagon spokesman Gary Ross said in a statement.

The North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) determined the missile launch from North Korea did not pose a threat to North America.
Washington called on Pyongyang to “refrain from actions that further raise tensions in the region,” Ross said.
“This provocation only serves to increase the international community’s resolve to counter the DPRK’s prohibited activities, including through implementing existing UN Security Council sanctions,” he said. “Our commitment to the defense of our allies, including the Republic of Korea and Japan, in the face of these threats, is ironclad.”

But while any missile that passes Seoul’s defenses would be potentially devastating for those in its path, the true threat posed by North Korea to its neighbors comes from its purported ability to equip such weapons with nuclear warheads.
