The head of Russian diplomacy told reporters covering the 15th Brics Summit that “everyone supports the name to remain. It has already become a brand name and none of the newcomers to its ranks suggested otherwise.”
At the same time, he noted that “everyone understands that it is better to leave everything as it is.” “This will underline the continuity of all our work,” he added.
The Brics Summit concludes here on Thursday under the presidency of South Africa.
South African President Cyril Ramaphosa informed that Argentina, Egypt, the United Arab Emirates, Ethiopia, Iran and Saudi Arabia will join the group on January 1, 2024.
