New Delhi, Oct 14 (IBNS): As India is gearing up to host the eighth edition of BRICS summit in Goa from Oct 15, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Friday that the nation will look to strengthen its bilateral ties with the partners.

"Over the next few days, India will host world leaders for the 8th BRICS & 1st ever BRICS-BIMSTEC Outreach Summit," PM Modi tweeted on Friday.

"I look forward to deliberations with leaders of China and South Africa, which will strengthen our bilateral ties with these key partners," he added.

The summit will be attended by Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Welcoming him, Modi tweeted, "India is honoured to welcome President Putin for the India-Russia Annual Summit, which will also take place in Goa."

The two nations are likely to sign 18 agreements upon Putin's arrival.

This will also be the first 'The Bay of Bengal Initiative for Multi-Sectoral Technical and Economic Cooperation' (BIMSTEC)-BRICS outreach summit.

Commenting on the same, PM Modi's tweet read, "I am happy that India is facilitating an outreach Summit with BIMSTEC leaders of Bangladesh, Bhutan, Myanmar, Nepal, Sri Lanka and Thailand."

"The outreach with BIMSTEC leaders is significant. We hope to tap the huge potential for cooperation and the dividends this will bring," he added.
