India should welcome Chinese President Xi Jinping's “five-point proposal” for Sino-Indian relations, for it recognizes the two countries’ growing economic relationship and global cooperation.

At this month's BRICS summit in Durban, the leaders of Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa will set ambitious goals. But, given the obstacles to cooperation – from mutual distrust to disparate interests – that exist among them, they are more likely to achieve their goals individually.
