Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Ali Bagheri Kani says the BRICS group of emerging economies is the core of the international will to build a justice-based world and serve the interests of independent countries.

According to The Iran Project, The BRICS group serves as the "core and engine of a global collective effort for creating a world rooted in justice and safeguarding the interests of independent countries," he told a meeting held to discuss Iran-Russia relations on Friday.

The Iranian diplomat is in Kazan, the Republic of Tatarstan, to take part in the 15th International Economic Forum "Russia-Islamic World: KazanForum 2024".

He said Iran and Russia are determined to make use of BRICS' active and joint capabilities to establish a just world.

"Our firm will in the BRICS group is to prepare the ground for the joining of other regional and international actors to move more effectively and efficiently in international relations," he added.

He noted that member states of the BRICS, particularly Brazil, South Africa and India, can help independent countries play a role in creating a just world that will promote peace and welfare of nations across the globe.

Iran officially became a member of the BRICS at the beginning of 2024, five months after it announced its acceptance as full member into the group along with Argentina, Egypt, Ethiopia, the UAE and Saudi Arabia.

BRICS was formed by and initially consisted of Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa, which collectively represent around 40% of the global population and a quarter of the world’s gross domestic product (GDP).

Iran was among dozens of countries that sought membership in BRICS and had submitted a formal application to join the body.
