South Africa will join Russia in pushing for a “redesigned global order” in which a greater role is played by non-Western organizations such as the BRICS partnership, South Africa’s foreign minister says.
Russia and South Africa are two of the five members of BRICS, along with China, India and Brazil.
Russia more isolated than ever at G20 as Lavrov attempts to stave off declaration criticizing the war in Ukraine.
“BRICS should play a pro-active role in emerging processes to ensure it is part of a redesigned global order,” Ms. Pandor said.
She said her talks with Mr. Lavrov were “wonderful” and she described South Africa as a friend of Russia with a strengthening relationship.
Mr. Lavrov, for his part, had only praise for South Africa and its stand on global issues.
The South African defence force said the naval drills will bolster “the already flourishing relations” among Russia, China and South Africa. »
