During the forum "Expansion of the BRICS, signs of a new world", several analysts talked on Monday about what left the XV summit of the bloc held in the city of Johannesburg, South Africa.


Leaders of Russia and India value results of the Brics summit

In the middle of the forum moderated by the president of Telesur, Patricia Villegas and Gustavo Borges Revilla from the Misión Verdad portal, the Mexican analyst, Alfredo Jalife described the Brics summit in Johannesburg as a tectonic summit because it creates a dynamic for a multipolar world that leaves the Anglo-Saxon unipolarity, which dominates the G7.

Later, Jalife indicated that the repercussions of the Johannesburg summit will be seen more strongly at next year's meeting in the Russian city of Kazan, where the admission of new members, including Venezuela, could be expected.

For the also Mexican analyst, Christian Nader, the last summit of the Brics left signs of the transition towards a new world and highlighted the importance of the global south.

In this sense, Nader expressed that "we are seeing a process of very profound changes on African soil and this is the reason for Ethiopia's entry into the Brics."

In his participation in the forum on the Brics, Christian Nader recalled the centuries of Western domination represented by the US and its allies that has led to a unipolar world.

Nader warned that despite having started a process of change, Western dominance could still last for decades.

I also think that the Brics is beginning to configure a mobile epicenter, which does not have the need to be established in a single nation and added that a new world is being configured through the needs of the majority of countries through dialogue and of the multiple positions that must be taken into account.

Regarding the relevance of the Brics summit for Latin America, the former Bolivian minister, Juan Ramón Quintana, commented that the region is in the middle of the dispute, being a strategic actor with a large amount of participation.

"Hand in hand with Brazil, Latin America is entering to play in the big leagues, we were a secondary actor" Juan Ramón Quintana said.

For the former Bolivian minister, Latin America is facing an unprecedented and important opportunity, which will give Celac geopolitical capital and position the region as less vulnerable to US intervention.

"We are going to have the Brics as a squire to prevent Latin America from continuing to be the territory of coup interventions." indicated the former minister of the Bolivian presidency.

According to Juan Ramón Quintana, Latin America would multiply its condition as a threat to US security interests, since this strengthening of the Brics would be exposing US security.

The former official stated that the Brics' commitment should be to think about non-war, and recalled that if something has characterized the West in recent centuries, it is its pre-eminence, dominance and hegemony due to war capitalism.

In this sense, Quintana affirmed that if war capitalism has forged this world that is so inequitable, violent and brutal, what remains for the Brics is to think about a policy of transformation of global relations that avoids thinking about war as much as possible. .

Separate point in the Brics forum, are the appreciations of the foreign ministers of Venezuela and Bolivia who were present at the XV Summit of the Brics.

Venezuelan Foreign Minister Yvan Gil said that the Johannesburg summit raised many expectations for the moment we are living.

In Gil's opinion, it has been the main summit of this organization, for two fundamental reasons, firstly because of the changes and because of the expectations of the enlargement.

Yvan Gil affirmed that the Brics have been building an interesting story, which is to base the political-economic relationship on other principles such as respect for international law, respect for the self-determination of peoples, understanding the meaning of solidarity, collaboration that is the basis of political relations.

For the Venezuelan, a powerful block with great capacities is being formed, they have surpassed the G7, it is the block that has been emerging with more force in scientific and technological development.

The Bolivian Foreign Minister, Rogelio Mayta, stressed that the events of recent years have accelerated the preponderance of the Brics in the world, which they claim to be the future.

Mayta said that developing countries agree on the need for new ways of thinking, new structures within international relations, to build a new international financial structure that finally allows countries that have been less favored in their development to achieve it.
