Algeria acknowledges its interest in joining the BRICS group

Algeria’s President Abdelmayid Tebune said Sunday that Algeria “largely” meets the conditions for joining the BRICS — made up of Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa — and acknowledged that the country has an interest in the group because of its economic and political influence.

During an interview with several national media broadcast on several television channels in the country, Tebune assured that membership in the BRICS depends on economic conditions that Algeria meets “to a large extent”, stressing that his country is interested in the group.

“Membership of the BRICS Group depends on economic conditions with which Algeria is satisfied to a large extent,” the Algerian president said, as reported by Algeria’s news agency Algérie Presse Service (APS).

Asked about the possibility of Algeria joining the group, Tebune said that “it is possible”, although he prefers not to get ahead of himself. “What is certain is that there will be good news (…) Algeria is interested in the BRICS, in that they constitute an economic and political power”, detailed the Algerian president.

“Joining this group would put Algeria, a pioneer country of non-alignment, safe from the friction between the two poles,” he added.
