BRICS heads of diplomacy discuss the new multipolar world order in South Africa

Chefes da diplomacia do BRICS debatem na África do Sul a nova ordem multipolar mundial

The heads of diplomacy of the BRICS countries (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa), started to discuss yesterday, Thursday, in Cape Town, the creation of a new ?multipolar? world order.

This Thursday, the ministers defended the new order at the start of a two-day meeting, where they are also preparing for the summit of heads of state and government scheduled for August in South Africa.

During the opening of the meeting, the South African Minister of International Relations and Cooperation, Naledi Pandor, indicated that the BRICS should ?contribute to the leadership of a world fractured by geopolitical tension, inequality and deteriorating global security? The South African minister also defended the ?inclusion of Africa and the world in a more just and equitable world based on mutual respect and equal sovereignty of nations?

South Africa currently chairs the BRICS group, and indicated that at least 19 countries from Asia, Latin America, and Europe, have sent written applications to join the regional group, noting that the expansion agenda includes the potential establishment of a common currency.

In this sense, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov stressed that ?the world is changing?, pointing out that ?the countries of Latin America, Asia and Africa are strengthening their positions and showing willingness to maintain their national interests and play an equal role in global processes?

The world order that was oriented to generate benefits for one country or a group of countries is a thing of the past," the Russian diplomatic chief stressed. The Russian minister denounced that ?the West is engaging in blackmail and sanctions are trying to influence the selection of economic models?, assuring that ?the BRICS will play an increasingly important role in global affairs, especially because this union is a true example of multilateralism, inclusiveness and non-discrimination?

It should be noted that the meeting in Cape Town will also be attended by delegates from countries such as Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Egypt and Kazakhstan, which have expressed their intention to join the group of major emerging economies in the world, according to the South African ambassador to BRICS, Anil Sooklal. Brazil, Russia, India and China created the BRIC group in 2006, which was joined by South Africa in 2010 in Johannesburg.
