Egypt is going to make a request to join the BRICS within the framework of the association’s summit.
In a few days – from August 22 to 24 – in Johannesburg, South Africa, the BRICS summit will be held: an association that today includes Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa. A whole queue of more than two dozen states has lined up to join the BRICS. One of them is Egypt, and, most likely, within the framework of the summit, a decision will be made on its accession to this organization. At least today, the chairman of the Egyptian Council for Foreign Affairs, Mohammed al-Orabi, hinted at this.
According to al-Orabi, Egypt will participate in the BRICS summit and intends to make a request to join this economic and political association. At the same time, according to the diplomat, Cairo is counting on Russia’s support in approving the application.
It is assumed that in addition to accepting new members, the BRICS summit will also discuss the creation of its own reserve currency. However, representatives of the member countries of the group have not yet confirmed this in plain text.
In any case, a lot of interesting news from the world of geopolitics will come from Johannesburg next week, and we in the editorial office will follow them.
