Iran attends a BRICS meeting for the first time, and this time it does so as a guest country.
The foreign ministers are discussing the possible launch of a common currency and the expansion of the group, which some 19 countries hope to join, including the Islamic Republic of Iran.
The event will serve to promote a new multilateralism in the world and its agenda includes preparations for the next Summit of Heads of State and Government of the economic bloc.
