At a recent press briefing, the idea of partnering countries joining BRICS came up. “Algeria and Egypt, which are two partners of the US… have applied to join BRICS… and it represents a kind of non-alignment force that stands against, kind of, Western hegemony. So how do you feel about this development? Do you welcome this?” White House Press Secretary Jean-Pierre was asked.

Subsequently, the White House stated that its engagement is predicated on an “affirmative agenda” and “focused on demonstrating the benefits of our governance and economic models.”

“US Policy does not ask our partners to choose between the United States and other countries. We have repeatedly emphasized that the US does not want to limit countries’ partnerships with other countries. But we want counties to have choices on how to deliver results to their citizens as well.”

The upcoming BRICS summit should see expansionary guidelines set in place by the bloc. Moreover, it should present discourse regarding what countries could meet those criteria to join the economic alliance. Alternatively, the US has clearly welcomed its partner’s exploratory action of that proposition.
