Russian Foreign Ministry: Iran, Argentina applied for BRICS membership

BRICS related topic continues to be actively discussed in the media: last week, the BRICS Summit was held in China, and it has become known now that Iran and Argentina have applied to join the organisation – as voiced by the official representative of Russia’s Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova, in her Telegram channel


In her post, Ms. Zakharova also touched on US policy, “While the White House was thinking of what else it could disable, ban and spoil in the world, Argentina and Iran applied to join BRICS," the Russian diplomat wrote.

By the way, Chinese President Xi Jinping said at the BRICS Summit that its member states should step aside from block confrontation and jointly stand against unilateral sanctions. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov also emphasised a special role of BRICS on the geopolitical platform of the world in the context of discussing the need to create new international organisations.
