Defence experts have deemed the BRICS Summit 2017 as a diplomatic victory for the country after a joint declaration condemned terrorism and included Pakistan based terrorist organisations in it.
Will the BRICS declaration lead to a policy shift in Pakistan? "These organisations are all sanctioned by the UN Security Council and have a significant impact for Afghanistan issue", foreign ministry spokesperson Geng Shuang said.
The minister indicated that Pakistan could no longer afford to "test" friends such as China. "The two sides have seen their relationship growing with a sound momentum, frequent high-level exchanges and fruitful outcomes of political cooperation", he said.
Analysts say the new charges put additional pressure on Pakistan for its alleged support of regional militant groups that are fighting in Afghanistan and Indian Kashmir.

After worldwide condemnation at 2017 BRICS Summit of terror groups in Islamabad posing threat to regional security, Pakistan's foreign minister Khawaja Asif on Wednesday acknowledged the need to restrict the activities of terror groups so that the country can tell the world that it has put its house in order.
The minister told that Pakistan's defence is in strong hands, and unnecessary threats are being raised after US President Donald Trump's statements against Pakistan.
"We reaffirm that those responsible for committing, organizing, or supporting terrorist acts must be held accountable", the declaration added. The declaration of BRICS, of which China is a prominent member, had expressed "concern" over the security situation in the region and the violence caused by the Taliban, ISIS, al-Qaeda and its affiliates including Eastern Turkistan Islamic Movement (ETIM) active in China's Xinjiang and Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan, the Haqqani network, LeT, JeM, Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) and Hizb ut-Tahrir. "I don't think it is good idea", Hu Shisheng, Director of the official China Institute of Contemporary International Relations told PTI. "I feel little odd", he said.
Asif tacitly referred to action by the Paris-based Financial Action Task Force that forced Pakistan to place LeT founder Hafiz Mohammad Saeed under house arrest. "It means that a big part of Afghanistan is a safe haven".
Meanwhile, Asif, in an interview with a private TV channel, acknowledged the existence of some internationally banned organistations operating from within Pakistan and called for imposing restrictions on the activities of those outfits.
