India, Brazil and S Africa support Argentina’s desire to join BRICS

Three of the five BRICS countries (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) support Argentina’s plans to join BRICS, Indian ambassador in Buenos Aires Amarenda Khatua said on Monday.

India, Brazil and South Africa are interested in having Argentina join the BRICS group of emerging economies, the ambassador said in an interview with Clarin.

Argentina may have difficulty joining the group as it has sovereign debt problems which the BRICS countries don’t have, Clarin points out.

Despite those problems “there is a growing consensus to have Argentina” join in, the diplomat said.

He said he was working to arrange a visit to Argentina for India’s next Prime Minister after the BRICS summit in Fortaleza, Brazil, scheduled for July 15.
