BEIJING: China on Monday said that terrorist outfits like JeM, LeT and the Haqqani network have been included in the BRICS joint declaration due to concerns about their violent activities in the region.

Foreign ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said BRICS countries have "shown their concerns to the violent activities raised by these organisations". 

"These organisations are all sanctioned by the UN Security Council and have a significant impact for Afghanistan issue," Geng told in a written response to a reference in the BRICS countries about these terror groups.
