MOSCOW (Sputnik) - Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov predicts that the BRICS club of emerging economies will have a greater sway in G20 after adding new members.
This week’s summit of Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa culminated with the sending of official invitations to Argentina, Egypt, Ethiopia, Iran, the UAE and Saudi Arabia to join the group.
"Of course, the standing of an expanded BRICS in G20 will strengthen with the participation of Saudi Arabia and Argentina," he told a television show aired Sunday.
The Russian diplomat said G20 was beginning to look like a combination of G7 Plus and BRICS Plus members. Russia will coordinate its position on global affairs with the new BRICS nations, including at other international forums, he added.
