He made the remark while departing for Johannesburg, where the 15th BRICS Summit will be held under South Africa's chairmanship.

Modi said: "This Summit will provide a useful opportunity for BRICS to identify future areas of cooperation and review institutional development."

"During my stay in Johannesburg, I will also participate in BRICS–Africa Outreach and BRICS Plus Dialogue event that will be held as part of the BRICS Summit activities. I look forward to interacting with several guest countries that have been invited to participate in this event," he said.

Meanwhile, one of the major focuses of the event is the presence of Chinese President Xi Jinping, who will be attending the summit.

After South Africa, Modi will visit Greece on Aug 25.
