BRICS Countries Group Welcoming Six New Members: A Big Global Change

Hold onto your seats because something exciting is happening in the world of international alliances! You've probably heard of BRICS - a group of countries that includes Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa. Well, guess what? They've decided to invite six more countries to join their gang: Saudi Arabia, Iran, Ethiopia, Egypt, Argentina, and the United Arab Emirates.

From 4 to 11: More Friends in the Club

BRICS is like a club of countries that work together on important stuff. And after 13 years, they're opening their doors to let more countries in. This is a pretty big deal because about 40 countries want to join BRICS to make the world more fair and equal for everyone.

Did you know that BRICS started with just four countries? It was called BRIC and included China, India, Russia, and Brazil. Then South Africa joined, and it became BRICS. The idea was to team up against the powerful countries and make the world more balanced.

Starting from January 1, 2024, BRICS will grow from 5 to 11 countries. That's like adding more friends to your squad!

What People Around the World Think

The current BRICS members are really happy about this. Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi tweeted, "On our 15th birthday, we're inviting new friends to join us. India is excited to welcome Argentina, Egypt, Ethiopia, Iran, Saudi Arabia, and UAE to our BRICS family."

China's President Xi Jinping said, "This is a big deal and shows that BRICS countries want to work together with other developing nations."

BRICS is all about teamwork and unity, but some people don't like this idea of a new world order.

Why These New Countries?

The new countries joining BRICS have special reasons. For example, Brazil's president wanted Argentina to join because they're like good friends. Egypt knows Russia and India well, so that's why they're joining. Saudi Arabia and the UAE want to be strong on their own and not just follow the United States.

Russia and Iran are teaming up because they both face similar problems. And South Africa wants Africa's voice to be heard louder in the world.

So, get ready for some exciting changes on the global stage as BRICS gets bigger and stronger. This is like a cool team-up of countries working together for a better world!
