The Ambassador also pointed out that many countries that were previously considered third world countries consider BRICS as an attractive initiative for cooperation.
The BRICS Summit, which took place at the end of August in Johannesburg, announced the expansion of the organization. It is expected that Argentina, Egypt, Iran, the UAE, Saudi Arabia and Ethiopia will become full member countries of the association on January 1, 2024.
The expansion of the association will also increase the economic influence of the organization. The BRICS, created in 2009, currently represents about 40% of the world’s population and more than a quarter of global GDP.
