Turkey expresses its desire to become member of BRICS

This was announced by the head of the country’s Foreign Ministry Hakan Fidan

Turkey wants to join BRICS and it is expected that this issue will be discussed at the meeting of ministers of the association in Nizhny Novgorod. Turkish Foreign Minister Hakan Fidan, who is on a visit to China, made such a statement. This is reported by 
South China Morning Post (SCMP).

“Certainly, we would like to become a member of Brics. So we’ll see how it goes this year,” he stated.

During the CCG event, Fidan said he looked forward to attending a meeting of the mechanism in Russia next week when foreign ministers from Brics countries – Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa, Iran, Egypt, Ethiopia, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates – will meet in the western Russian city of Nizhny Novgorod as part of the lead-up to the October summit in Kazan.

At that meeting, the possibility of Turkey joining BRICS is expected to be one of the topics on the agenda.

“We see potential in BRICS,” he added.

Russian Presidential Spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that Russia welcomes Turkey’s interest in BRICS.

Six new members, including Argentina, were invited to join the group in August 2023, but declined to join in late December. Five new members – Egypt, Ethiopia, Iran, Egypt, Saudi Arabia and the UAE – began full BRICS membership on 1 January 2024.
