China’s Xi Jinping calls for accelerated BRICS expansion

  • China’s President Xi Jinping called for the acceleration of the expansion of the BRICS group on Wednesday, a goal the world’s second-largest economy has long harboured.
  • “We should let more countries join the BRICS family to pool wisdom and efforts to make global governance more just and equitable,” Xi said.
  • South Africa said last month that more than 40 other nations had expressed interest in joining the organization, which aims to offset the perceived hegemony of the U.S.-led West in global affairs. Of those, 22 had formally asked to join, it said.
