Malaysia’s intention to join the intergovernmental economic grouping, BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa), will enable the country to address various issues on the international stage more effectively, Malaysian National News Agency (BERNAMA) reported.

Malaysian Foreign Minister Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan said Malaysia's influence will be significantly enhanced as part of this economic bloc compared to operating independently.

“We are currently analysing, monitoring, and assessing our readiness to become members of BRICS. Our participation in this bloc must benefit the country and not merely serve as a point of pride. Therefore, we are examining and analysing its significance “We undertake any initiative only if it serves the national interest. By becoming a member of BRICS, we can ensure that Malaysia’s intentions are voiced (on various issues). This is our strategy for making our voice heard on the global stage,” he told reporters
