The number of countries that have expressed a desire to join the work of BRICS is close to 30. This was announced by Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.

The head of the Russian Foreign Ministry noted that a review of the work on agreeing on modalities for the new category of BRICS partner countries being introduced was carried out.

“I would like to note that the number of states interested in joining our work is steadily growing and is already close to three dozen. All our BRICS friends understand that such a request cannot go without a positive response.”said Lavrov.

He noted that work in this direction will continue. Relevant recommendations will be prepared for the unification summit, which will take place in Kazan on October 22–24.

“We feel the support of our partners and are ready to continue working to strengthen the entire range of our projects”added the Russian minister.

Let us recall that earlier Lavrov, at a meeting of the BRICS foreign ministers in Nizhny Novgorod, said that the association is actively working on developing a platform for payments in national currencies. The diplomat added that active work is also underway on key Russian initiatives in the field of transport, as well as the creation of a contact group on climate and sustainable development, a working group on nuclear medicine and a medical association.
