South Africa: Lavrov convenes with BRICS Foreign Ministers in Pretoria

Foreign ministers from BRICS countries (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) met in Pretoria on Monday to discuss topics including information security and the fight against global terrorism. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov stated that BRICS countries ‘firmly uphold’ the basic principles of the UN Charter, primarily the ‘sovereign equality of states’ and ‘non-interference in... Еще their internal affairs.’ Lavrov went on to say that the countries are ‘united or close’ in their assessments of key global issues, adding: «We agree on the need to counteract attempts to revise the results of World War II.» Indian Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj mentioned that multilateralism, international trade and rules-based world order ‘face strong headwinds.’ «Ensuring that the benefits of globalisation are shared equally remains our challenge,» Swaraj concluded. The ministers also focused on preparations for the 10th BRICS Summit, which will take place on July 25-27 this year in Johannesburg.
