MOSCOW, July 9. /TASS/. Chairperson of Russia’s Federation Council Valentina Matviyenko has said that the interaction between lawmakers of the BRICS countries will be formalized, and the creation of the parliamentary assembly will be the result of deepening this cooperation.
"We will continue to move towards deepening cooperation between the parliaments of the BRICS countries, and I am sure that this will soon be formalized into a parliamentary assembly," the speaker of the upper house of the Russian parliament told the Rossiya 24 TV channel on Thursday.
According to the senator, the SCO and BRICS summits in Ufa gave a fresh impetus to these associations. "The forum is very authoritative, and the results of this forum are impressive," she said.
Matviyenko voiced confidence that the greater the degree of integration between the BRICS countries, the "bigger the need to create such a platform where parliamentarians of these countries could meet, exchange views and put forward some proposals." She added that this type of dialogue was "highly sought after."
"This is our joint initiative, a common desire, and the first forum of the BRICS parliaments has reaffirmed their profound interest in such dialogue, such meetings," the senator said.
