Russia postpones BRICS, SCO summits in July

Russia announced on Wednesday that the coronavirus pandemic has forced it to postpone two international summits set for Saint Petersburg in July. Officials responsible for the BRICS and SCO summits "decided to postpone" both events scheduled for July 21-23 in Russia's second city, according to a statement on the Kremlin website. The summits would have brought together leaders of BRICS countries, an association of five emerging economies -- Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa. It would have also convened leaders of Shanghai Cooperation Organisation countries, which include Russia, China, India, Pakistan and several Central Asian countries. The Kremlin said new dates would be decided depending on the virus situation of countries participating in the summits "and in the world as a whole."
