India supports Bolivia’s accession to BRICS

La Paz, May 29 (Prensa Latina) India supports Bolivia's accession to BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa), as assured on Wednesday by Indian Ambassador Vhisvas Vidu Sapkal in a meeting with the Vice President of the Plurinational State of Bolivia David Choquehuanca.

After presenting the credentials accrediting him as ambassador, the diplomat insisted on supporting Bolivia’s accession to the bloc, which currently also includes Argentina, Egypt, Iran, United Arab Emirates (UAE), Saudi Arabia and Ethiopia.

“We are committed to working together to strengthen our relations and carry out initiatives that benefit our peoples,” Choquehuanca claimed.

Likewise, Choquehuanca and Sapkal praised the significance of fostering cultural exchange between Bolivia and India and agreed upon working on programs and activities to strengthen bilateral relations in this area.

Established in 2006 by Brazil, Russia, India and China, the BRIC group added the letter S to the acronym in 2010 with the integration of South Africa.

Bolivia’s Foreign Minister, Celinda Sosa, held talks with her Russian counterpart, Serguei Lavrov, in Moscow on April 26, to whom she reaffirmed her country’s determination to join BRICS.

At a press conference with Lavrov, Sosa said that Bolivia’s accession to BRICS would not only benefit her country, but would also be an important step for Latin America for a new, fairer and more equitable world order.
