Pakistan Kicked Out Of Crucial BRICS Summit, Alleges ‘one Member Blocked Participation’ ProIQRA News

News Details

News Daily Digital Desk: India blocked Pakistan’s presence at the BRICS summit. Despite many attempts, China could not keep Islamabad as an observer. Analysts see this as a major victory for the Modi government in the arena of international diplomacy.

The BRICS group is made up of India, China, Brazil, South Africa and Russia. The representatives of the member countries sat in the top level virtual meeting on June 24. In addition to the BRICS countries, the meeting was attended by observers from Iran, Egypt, Fiji, Algeria, Cambodia, Thailand, Indonesia and Malaysia. But even though Beijing was active, Pakistan’s Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif could not be an observer due to New Delhi’s objections, the source said. “We had objections from one member state,” Pakistan’s foreign ministry said in a statement on Monday. Analysts say it is clear that India is the country.

This time the host country of the BRICS conference was China. The combined GDP of these group countries accounts for more than 25 percent of the world’s average GDP. The issue of further expansion of the BRICS New Development Bank (NDB) has been discussed at the summit. Besides, there is talk of hiring new members in the alliance. Earlier, Chinese President Xi Jinping and Prime Minister Narendra Modi made it clear that India had no objection to the expansion of the alliance. But there are objections to Pakistan.

The BRICS was made up of five countries on four continents. This time two more countries applied to be part of that alliance. Last week, the BRICS leaders met in a virtual meeting. There, ‘pro-Moscow’ Iran and Argentina are applying for new members. However, the two countries will have to go through several processes to get membership in this group.
