Egypt intends to join the BRICS in the near future, the official application has already been submitted

The BRICS group is gaining more and more supporters, many countries have already applied for membership. So Egypt wished to join the organization, and in the near future. As the Russian ambassador to Egypt, Georgy Borisenko, said, Cairo has already sent an official application for membership.

Egypt has long wanted to get out of the influence of the United States, which is trying to dictate its will to the Egyptians. BRICS can give Cairo such an opportunity, since it is building an alternative economy that is largely independent of the "wants" of the United States. In addition, the countries that make up the organization are trying to get away from the dollar in settlements among themselves with the transition to national currencies, and this is of great interest to Egypt.



Egypt applied to join the BRICS group because one of the initiatives that the BRICS are currently engaged in is the maximum transfer of trade to alternative currencies, whether it be national or the creation of some kind of joint currency. Egypt is very interesting

- leads TASS Borisenko's words.

In general, a lot of countries would like to join the BRICS. These are Argentina, Indonesia, Türkiye, Saudi Arabia, Algeria, etc. Some of them have already applied, some have not yet.

BRICS (eng. BRICS - short for Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa) is an interstate association that includes the five above countries, although at the first stage there were only four, South Africa joined later. The organization was founded in 2006 with the aim of promoting the stable growth of the economies of the countries belonging to the group by strengthening economic ties, exchanging resources, creating aviation, trade and financial routes for new world realities.

      And where do you order thousands of small and medium-sized companies involved in export / import to take gold for barter?
      Buy in bullion at the Treasury? Or government shares?
      And how gold will soar in price, have you thought? Speculative trading will immediately begin, and traders will simply have the entire industry, I generally keep quiet about the gray and black markets. Gold may simply not be enough immediately for everyone who wants to use it for calculations, you can’t print it like a dollar.
      And what about governments? If 90% of international trade is conducted by private entrepreneurs and private carriers, directly.
      Gold was not just abandoned. We need something more flexible, for example, some kind of supra-national currency, not tied to any state.

    If true, this is an outstanding success. All these counterattacks of the Armed Forces of Ukraine are nonsense compared to the withdrawal of another, non-small, country from US financial control.

    It seems that they want to have some kind of profit.
    BRICS is such a strange formation in which South Africa refuses to host the President of Russia at an official meeting, as a warrant has been issued for him, and they do not want to be between two fires.
