India-Brazil objections to BRICS expansion

China is trying to expand the scope of BRICS, an alliance comprising Brazil, India, China, Russia and South Africa. Countries like Bangladesh, Saudi Arabia, Iran, Indonesia have expressed interest in joining this alliance, which consists of the five largest countries in the world.

However, India and Brazil have objected to the inclusion of new members in the BRICS alliance ‘quickly’, Bloomberg reported in a report on Friday.

The BRICS summit will be held in Johannesburg, South Africa next month. Preparatory talks are underway among member countries ahead of the formal conference. There, China asked Saudi Arabia and Indonesia as new members to join the alliance. An official said on condition of anonymity that India and Brazil have objected to China’s proposal.

As several countries around the world express interest in joining BRICS, the United States and the West fear that the alliance is becoming a challenge for the European Union and the United States.

Brazil has objected to the expansion of BRICS because of such fears of the US and the West. India, on the other hand, has said that it wants rules to be imposed on joining the alliance.
