The diplomat also urged Russian regions to step up interaction with these organisations, stressing the high status of BRICS and the SCO. Lavrov mentioned that they already have formats aimed specifically at cooperation between the provinces of the member states.

The day before, Anil Sooklal, the South African Sherpa to the BRICS, said that the members of the association had begun to work out the criteria for the group's enlargement. They are expected to be prepared within the next three months.

Chinese authorities supported the expansion of the BRICS bloc. The Chinese government noted that fruitful cooperation among the member countries in the area of finance would accelerate the recovery of domestic economy in the BRICS countries.
