MOSCOW, July 2. /TASS/. Russia did not suggest Greece joining the BRICS New Development Bank (NDB), Russian Finance Minister Anton Siluanov said on Thursday.
"We did not suggest [that]," the minister said.
Greece did not hold any negotiations to join the BRICS NDB, Russian Deputy Finance Minister Sergey Storchak told TASS earlier.
"According to the charter of BRICS NDB, any state - UN member-nation can join it.
