Libertarian Congressman and Presidential candidate Javier Milei Thursday rejected Argentina joining the BRICS on the ground that “I will not promote a deal with Communists.”
Milei also insisted that his geopolitical partners should he become president would be “the United States and Israel.” But “this does not mean the private sector cannot trade with whomever it wants,” he also warned.
South African President Cyril Ramaphosa announced earlier Thursday from Johannesburg that Argentina, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Ethiopia, Iran, and the United Arab Emirates had been accepted as of Jan. 1 next into the group of emerging economies which includes Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa.
Milei’s statements came after former Security Minister Patricia Bullrich, another leading contender for the Oct. 22 elections voiced her disapproval of something heralded by President Alberto Fernández as a diplomatic victory.
