The conversation, which was initiated by Iran, focused on the steps needed to ensure the smooth integration of Iran into the association’s full-format activities. This dialogue is particularly significant in light of Russia’s upcoming presidency in 2024.
Gratitude and Expansion: Iran’s Application for BRICS Membership

The decision to admit new members, including Argentina, Egypt, Ethiopia, Iran, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates was made during the organization’s August summit in Johannesburg. These countries are set to become official members of the organization starting from January 1, 2024.
Russia’s Role in Iran’s Integration into BRICS
With Russia’s forthcoming presidency in 2024, the country plays a crucial role in Iran’s integration into BRICS. The recent discussions between the presidents of the two nations highlighted the importance of building bilateral ties in trade, transport, logistics, and energy. The support and collaboration between these two nations will be instrumental in ensuring Iran’s successful integration into the BRICS association.
Conclusion: A New Chapter in International Collaboration
The main takeaway is Iran’s upcoming membership in BRICS and the planned steps for its integration. The decision to admit Iran and other new members into the association is a significant step towards enhancing international collaboration and economic development. With a particular emphasis on Russia’s role due to its forthcoming presidency in 2024, the path is being laid for a new chapter in international relations and cooperation.
