SANYA, China - Leaders from five of the world's largest emerging economies will reject the use of force in the Middle East and North Africa at a summit on Thursday, urging instead dialogue and non-intervention, according to a draft statement.

The "BRICS" nations of Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa will also urge the development of physical markets to reduce commodity price volatility as well as demand a greater say for developing nations in multilateral forums.

In the context of the Middle East and Northern Africa, specifically Libya, the BRICS "share the principle that the use of force must be avoided", according to the draft statement, a copy of which was seen by Reuters.
