The Milei government rules out the integration of Argentina into the Brics group

The Argentine government has ruled out the incorporation of this country into the Brics group (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) a few days after its final decision, Casa Rosada spokesman Manuel Adorni confirmed this Friday.

According to the spokesman, the beginning of President Javier Milei's term in office implies a change in foreign policy that requires in-depth analysis.

Adorni reported that letters were sent to the bloc's leaders, which were published today in local media.

The letters state that “the entry of this nation as a full member of this platform from January 1, 2024 is not considered appropriate.”

“As you know, the foreign policy character of the government that I headed for a few days differs in many cases from that of the previous one,” says one of the texts signed by Milei.

Some decisions made by the previous government are being reviewed, including the creation of a special unit for active participation in the Brics states, he adds.

However, it expresses interest in strengthening bilateral relations with these states.

The start of the process to admit Argentina into BRICS was announced in August and then-President Alberto Fernández emphasized the role of this platform in promoting multilateral cooperation.

It is a long-standing wish that we are beginning to realize today. “We are honored to join this group of nations that respect their differences, find common ground and seek to influence the global order in an unstable and unequal world,” the former president noted at the time.

In addition, he stressed the relevance of integration in a context characterized by “a crisis in the multilateral system, shocks in supply chains, the imposition of unilateral sanctions and agreements restricting access to strategic technological developments.”
