Ethiopia’s PM celebrates BRICS invite as a “remarkable moment̶...

Ethiopia’s Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed welcomed the news on Thursday that his nation would be among the six new entrants to the BRICS consortium of emerging economies.

“A great moment for Ethiopia as the BRICS leaders endorse our entry into this group today,” Abiy said on X, formerly known as Twitter.

“Ethiopia stands ready to cooperate with all for an inclusive and prosperous global order.”

“Congratulations to all Ethiopians,” Abiy’s office added in a separate post on X after the announcement by South African President Cyril Ramaphosa at the BRICS summit.

Starting from January 1, 2024, Ethiopia, the second-most populous nation in Africa, will attain full membership status, along with Argentina, Egypt, Iran, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates, in the BRICS alliance.
