Iran's goals coincide with those of BRICS: FM Amir-Abdollahian

Iran's goals are in line with those of the BRICS, according to Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian, and Tehran, along with other like-minded countries, could be a "reliable partner" for the group of growing economies.

Iran (IMNA) - The senior Iranian diplomat made the comments during a speech to the Friends of BRICS Foreign Ministers conference on Friday in Cape Town, South Africa.

Iran, according to him, has the potential to have a significant impact because of its "rich experience of active participation in international organizations, abundant energy resources, short and efficient transport and transit networks, educated and skilled human workforce, remarkable scientific and technological achievements, and above all, strong dedication and determination to contribute to a fair world order."

According to the Iranian foreign ministry, the Islamic Republic will soon conduct a meeting in collaboration with BRICS embassies "to go into detail on present potentials for partnership between Iran and the group."

In the words of Amir-Abdollahian, Iran's political and economic relations with the BRICS countries are still excellent, with commerce valued at more than $30 billion.

He stated that Tehran was keen to strengthen ties with the three BRIC countries of Russia, China, and India through the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO).

Amir-Abdollahian described Iran, India, and South Africa as active members of the Indian Ocean Rim Association (IORA), saying the three countries collaborate in numerous economic areas. He included Iran, China, India, Brazil, and South Africa as members of the G-77 group of developing countries.

Amir-Abdollahian also stated in his statement that Iran is a pioneer of multilateralism. He stated that Tehran and several of the BRICS countries are members of important international cooperation agreements.

BRICS has earned an important place in global relations as a result of its "combined capabilities and serious efforts to strengthen multilateralism," according to the Iranian minister.
