BRICS Foreign Ministers to hold extended Council session

Nizhny Novgorod, Russia, Jun 11 (Prensa Latina) The foreign ministers of the BRICS member nations and the invited countries will hold an expanded session of the Council of Ministers of the bloc.

The 10 foreign ministers of the bloc (Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, United Arab Emirates, Ethiopia and Iran), plus some twenty representatives from other related states will participate in the event.

Participants will analyze current issues on the world agenda in the context of joint efforts to strengthen true multilateralism in international relations, the organizers of the event announced.

The ministers will also discuss current regional issues, the interaction between the BRICS member countries within the framework of the association and on other platforms, the prospects for multifaceted cooperation in the year of the Russian Federation’s presidency of the bloc in three main areas: politics and security, economy and finance and humanitarian relations. They will also evaluate key aspects of the formation of a more just world order and the role of countries of the Global South and East in those processes.

The Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, which chairs the event, assured that the main task is the collective search for answers to common challenges facing the international community to ensure equal security, sustainable development and long-term economic growth.

The members of the group established an official statement on Monday at the initiative of the Indian Foreign Ministry, in which they outlined the main objectives to work on in the future, and congratulated Russia for its management as president of the organization.

The statement indicates that the heads of diplomacy of the member nations reaffirmed their commitment to strengthening the BRICS strategic partnership environment in the three areas mentioned above, including cultural and people-to-people exchanges.

According to the joint information, the next meeting of BRICS foreign ministers will be held parallel to the United Nations General Assembly, and will be hosted by Brazil as the new president of the association in 2025.
