MOSCOW, July 15 /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s President Vladimir Putin stressed that Moscow had no intention to create a BRICS political alliance.
“Certainly, the BRICS countries (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) intend to strengthen the political element of our cooperation. That is why we will develop the practice of mutual consultations and joint actions in international organisations, first of all, in the UN”, he told Itar-Tass in an interview ahead of the BRICS summit.
Putin said that they planned to create a virtual BRICS secretariat in the long term.
“At the same time, I would like to stress that we do not have any plans to form a BRICS military and political alliance”, he added.
