Iran And Argentina In BRICS Would Advance The Multipolar Project

Illustrative Image

BRICS’ expansion is a necessary step to overcome the unipolar world order.

Written by Lucas Leiroz, researcher in Social Science sat the Rural Federal University of Rio de Janeiro; geopolitical consultant.

A new step is being taken towards the expansion of the BRICS. Iran and Argentina asked this last week of June to join the group of emerging countries currently formed by Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa. Beijing and Moscow, which are extremely affected by international sanctions, have recently invested heavily in promoting the group as an economic alternative to the West, which has significantly aroused the interest of other developing nations in this growing market. In fact, this expansion is a remarkable step towards economic multipolarity.

On June 27, Iran formally announced its application to join the BRICS. The measure comes after the country was invited to participate in the 14th BRICS summit, which took place in virtual format in China, on the 24th. In addition to Iran, attended the summit several emerging countries under similar conditions to the BRICS and that may be interested in asking membership in the future, such as Algeria, Egypt, Indonesia, Kazakhstan, Senegal, Uzbekistan, Cambodia, Ethiopia, Fiji, Malaysia and Thailand.

“Iran’s unique geographical position and its capacities in the fields of energy, transit, and trade have caused the BRICS members to pay special attention to Iran, as a golden route to connect the East to the West (…) If Iran and other powerful countries join the grouping, it can be even stronger and challenge Western policies”, Iran’s state media Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA) stated in a publication.

In 2021, Tehran had already been accepted to participate in the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO), one of the most important blocks of political and commercial cooperation on the Asian continent and which includes three of the five members of the BRICS, sharing with the group its main objectives of integration among emerging nations. In addition, the country is also participating in some projects concerning China’s Belt and Road Initiative, consolidating itself as a partner of the platform. Now, with the request for membership to the BRICS, it is possible to see Iran’s interest in deepening a strategy of global cooperation among developing nations.

A few days earlier, Argentina had also requested membership in the BRICS. Argentinian President Alberto Fernandez claimed that by joining the BRICS his country could actively contribute to the group’s progress with its potential in sectors such as food exports, biotechnology, logistics and innovation.

“We aspire to be a full member of this group of nations that already represents 42% of the world’s population and 24% of the global gross product”, the leader said during the summit.

In fact, Argentina is currently highly interested in the BRICS market. For example, Buenos Aires is one of China’s biggest partners in the agro-industrial sector. The South American country not only exports large amounts of soybeans for the production of animal feed in China, but also receives Chinese companies that produce pork meat in Argentine territory, which has been fundamental for the development of the Chinese strategy of technological progress and internationalization of its agri-food sector. In this sense, joining the BRICS would be a natural consequence of Argentina’s economic interests and a major step in international status for the country that has the second largest economy in South America.

Obviously, the requests are yet to be fully analyzed, discussed, voted on and decided on, but so far there has been no explicit sign of disapproval of the calls by the BRICS member countries, which is an indication that the proposals are really welcome and has great potential for acceptance. In fact, it is of great interest to member countries to promote the expansion of the BRICS at this delicate moment on the international scenario, when the West intensifies its coercive measures against Russia and China, pushing them to seek alternatives markets in the developing world.

Not only would Iran and Argentina be interesting partners, but their membership could serve as a positive background for more developing countries and regional powers to apply for entry in the near future. The expansion of the BRICS in a moment of coercion on the part of the West shows that the project of a multipolar world is advancing. The group is increasingly moving from being a mere instrument of economic multilateralism to representing a multipolar force of cooperation. So, the tendency is for the group to bring together more and more countries, even if some of them have rivalry or friction, as it is in the BRICS’ agenda to establish a platform for cooperation between nations centered on political non-interventionism.

Above all, the interest of countries with promising economies in joining the BRICS serves as a message to the West saying that attempts to coerce and “cancel” other nations are obsolete tactics condemned to failure. Emerging states make it clear that we are in the era of non-ideological international cooperation.

Brazil, India, and South Africa are good customers and trading partners. But they will never be anything more because they are useless and timid at the harder edge of world politics: confronting the United States. China, Russia, and Iran have in common strategic interests that go beyond commerce.

Also NK would be a good strategic partner for BRICS. Argentina and Brazil are both against the IRGC and their allied militias, so countries like that should be out of the loop in the military sector of BRICS to avoid cia and Mossad spies

Look at the article’s rate, it’s 7,5 stars now. Ordinary mortal people like me allowed to put just 5 stars, not more, but some angels among us can give 10 stars easily or even 20, if they have a good mood. These news about BRICS are so great that i don’t even dare to give 5 stars and to make the total grade lower.

If Argentina is allowed into BRICS, it is only because Goldman Sachs and Blackstone have approved it to repay all the loans with fair terms they got in Argentina and over spent on redwine and luxury goods.

G-7 countries account for around 770 Million people, and is focused in northern hemisphere.

*Note: G-7 is really just the USA Empire, and its six most rabid, Neo-colonialist, supporters.

BRICS countries account for well over 3 Billion people, and are focused across both the northern and southern hemispheres.

Which Bloc is the future moving forward…?!! Which Bloc is not in a permanent rearguard defensive action over its Empire, desperately trying to maintain the status quo, of the US reserve currency status, and endless hard and soft power machinations to try and maintain thecontrol of the subordinate Empire vassals…?!!

The turning point for Argentina was when the Argentinian government tried to acquire Pfizer covid vaccines and the Pfizer executives told Argentina that if they wanted the vaccines they had to give complete control of the fresh water reserves in Patagonia to the U.S. government. That is when president Fernandez told Pfizer to go fu#ck themselves with that kind of extortion. Fernandez then proceeded to purchase the Sputnik vaccines from Russia. Argentina is the second biggest economy in South America and I can see many other South American nations joining BRICS as well. Iran joining BRICS is yet another huge step in strengthening Russia-Iran ties. Good news overall. The G7 is history finally.
