Prime News, International, National, Moscow, June 24:- Russian President Vladimir Putin on Thursday (June 23) called on the leaders of member nations of BRICS to cooperate with Russia in the face of selfish actions from the West. Russia currently faces several sanctions issued by the western nations over its war with Ukraine. The 14th BRICS summit is being hosted by China in a virtual model.
“…only on the basis of honest and mutually beneficial cooperation we can look for ways out of the critical situation that has emerged in the world economy because of the ill-conceived and selfish actions of certain states, which, by using financial mechanisms, are actually shifting their own macroeconomic policy mistakes onto the rest of the world,” Putin said in his virtual address.
Putin also pointed out that this is an objective process since the five countries have truly great economic, scientific, technological and human potential. They can effectively work together to ensure international stability and security, sustainable growth and prosperity and the well-being of their people.
The Russian president added that Moscow considers the theme of Thursday’s meeting, ‘Foster High-quality BRICS Partnership, Usher in a New Era for Global Development,’ relevant. He drew attention to the fact that the complexity and transnational nature of the challenges and threats the international community faces require a search for collective responses with the bloc’s active participation.
