VLADIVOSTOK, November 14. /TASS/. The GDPs of BRICS countries calculated at the purchasing power parity are greater than those of the G7, Russian President Vladimir Putin said in an exclusive interview with TASS ahead of the G20 summit in Brisbane, Australia.
“As far as I know, the GDP of BRICS is $37.4 trillion, while that of the G7, $34.5 trillion,” Putin said.
“What if they (G7) are told: ‘No, thank you, we shall be doing this and that here on our own and we don’t care how you will carry on?’ There will follow nothing but worse imbalance. If we really wish to decide something, we should decide it together,” he said.
