  • On this episode of China Uncensored,

  • Chinese leader Xi Jinping is hosting

  • the annual BRICS Summit.

  • And he's proving,

  • that Xi's a BRICS house!

  • Welcome back to China Uncensored.

  • I'm your host Chris Chappell.

  • This week was the annual BRICS Summit

  • in Xiamen, China.

  • It's a meeting between the world's l

  • argest developing economies

  • Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa.

  • Personally I think they should have

  • gone with SBRIC

  • or maybe BRISC.

  • That's BRISC, baby.

  • Together, these five BRICS countries

  • make up 40% of the world's population,

  • 25% of the world's landmass,

  • and almost 30% of the global GDP.

  • Now while you might be thinking:

  • This BRICS Summit sounds like

  • the most boring meeting on Earth.

  • Fortunately, state-run China Central Television

  • knows how to make it cool.

  • With a Fast and Furious style death race!

  • On a volcano!

  • The meeting faces many challenges,

  • like dangerous roads!

  • Lava explosions!

  • And electric rocks shaped like letters!

  • But when the road starts to

  • crumble underneath them,

  • these five rivals will join together

  • and accomplish the impossible!

  • Jumping over a cliff!

  • Wow, the BRICS Summit

  • must be so cool!

  • Let's take a look at the actual footage.

  • Almost as cool?

  • Now I understand why CCTV did that animation.

  • So what did the real-life versions

  • of those race car drivers discuss

  • during their three-day extravaganza?

  • One thing,

  • as I mentioned earlier in the broadcast,

  • is that they're all angry at North Korea

  • for trying to upstage their party

  • with a nuclear test.

  • But looming over the three day summit

  • was the intense rivalry smoldering

  • between the two biggest countries:

  • India and China.

  • For about 70 days,

  • India and China were locked in a serious border dispute

  • that threatened to turn into full blown war.

  • And by threatened,

  • I meanChinese state-run media

  • was threatening war.

  • And that was just a symptom

  • of much deeper tensions

  • between the two nations.

  • The dispute was eventually resolved,

  • with both sides saving face,

  • just in time for the BRICS summit.

  • And the two leaders both seemed amicable enough...

  • But things are far from smooth between India and China.

  • They're still economic and political rivals.

  • Oh, and military rivals.

  • On the Friday before the summit,

  • China held live fire drills in the Indian Ocean.

  • Or as the Chinese Communist Party calls it,

  • theSouthwest China Sea.”

  • I'm just kidding.

  • I think.

  • But speaking of territorial disputes,

  • those also made their way into the summit.

  • Xi Jinping was pushing his One Belt One Road Initiative.

  • He says it will link China and the rest of Eurasia together

  • for mutual economic prosperity and high-speed car chases.

  • But India considers it a debt-fueled disaster

  • that will see China surrounding India

  • and threatening its sovereignty.

  • A huge part of the plan involves

  • the China Pakistan Economic Corridor

  • which would go through territory

  • that India disputes with Pakistan.

  • Pakistan is of course a major rival to India

  • over more than just territory.

  • India considers Pakistan

  • a source of terrorism.

  • Yes, terrorism.

  • That's another point

  • that China and India square off over.

  • Since China is pretty buddy buddy with Pakistan,

  • the Chinese regime has used its spot

  • as permanent member on the UN security council

  • to block India's attempts to have the leader

  • of the Pakistan-based terrorist group

  • Jaish-e-Mohammad

  • put on a terror blacklist.

  • Yes, China has blocked the leader

  • of a terrorist organization

  • from being labeled a terrorist.

  • But India won a round on that front

  • at this BRICS Summit.

  • In the 43-page joint statement

  • put out during the summit,

  • tackling terrorism was a key point.

  • And it specifically called out

  • Pakistan based groups

  • like Lashkar-e-Taiba

  • and Jaish-e-Mohammad,

  • alongside ISIS and al-Qaida.

  • That may put a strain on China-Pakistan ties.

  • Another reason the Chinese regime

  • is concerned about India

  • is its ties to the United States.

  • Beijing is leery of being surrounded by US allies,

  • like South Korea, Japan, Australia, and India.

  • So smoothing over recent tensions

  • to ensure India came to BRICS

  • is part of a long term plan

  • to make India,

  • and all the other countries,

  • more reliant on China instead of the West.

  • A big part of that is the New Development Bank.

  • It was started two years ago by the BRICS countries.

  • The idea is to rival the World Bank and the IMF.

  • The New Development Bank is equally funded

  • by all five BRICS countries:

  • Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa.

  • And it will offer loans for projects in those countries

  • without all the strings attached

  • that Western countries tend to add.

  • Worthless strings,

  • like government transparency

  • and human rights.

  • The New Development Bank is probably

  • the most concrete thing to come out of

  • the BRICS Summits in recent years.

  • Each country has pledged

  • $10 billion dollars to it so far.

  • The first project it funded

  • is a solar energy plant in China.

  • And one of the next projects it will fund

  • is a drinking water system in rural India.

  • Of course China's $10 billion investment

  • in the New Development Bank is small

  • compared to the $120 billion

  • Xi Jinping pledged to his One Belt,

  • One Road initiative back in May.

  • So he's still giving priority to that.

  • But as much as the Chinese regime

  • would like India to become economically dependent on China,

  • the plan may have backfired a bit.

  • Because while Xi's back was turned,

  • these two got to talking on the sidelines.

  • Modi and Putin got to talking about

  • their own trade and investment deals.

  • And that was after the two signed defense and energy deals

  • worth billions last October.

  • I mean Putin, whose side are you on?

  • Look, Xi Jinping just wanted to put on a good party.

  • And of course the US wasn't invited.

  • There a Chinese Opera,

  • set in what looks suspiciously like China's

  • sacred territory in the South China Sea.

  • Putin seems uncomfortable.

  • There was even pie...or least metaphors about pie.

  • "The development of emerging markets

  • and developing countries

  • won't touch anyone's cheese,

  • but instead will diligently grow

  • the world economic pie.”

  • What's with the cheese thing?

  • Has Xi Jinping been reading self help books again?

  • "We will grow the world economic pie

  • by manifesting it through the law of attraction

  • of the universe.

  • Visualize the pie.

  • The big cheese pie.”

  • Oh no, he's moved on to The Secret.

  • No one show him The Power of Now.

  • But overall,

  • relations between India and China are better

  • than they were during the recent military standoff.

  • At the same time,

  • India is still suspicious of what China has to offer.

  • And that might mean team BRICS

  • will never make it to the top of volcano mountain.

  • But at least they'll always have a big cheese pie?

  • And coming up after the break,

  • the Chinese Communist Party is being threatened by ISIS.

  • Which makes this whole India rivalry

  • look like a playground scuffle.
