BRICS as a union “does not impose anything on anyone,” because it does not have the bloc discipline inherent in military-political alliances, says Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, RT reported. The BRICS countries, Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa, together disagree with “attempts to solve problems from a position of strength, interference in internal affairs, pressure of some countries on others, including the imposition of unilateral sanctions,” Lavrov said, speaking at BRICS academic summit on Tuesday. Lavrov said cooperation in “economics, trade, finance, science and technology” within the group is growing. In September BRICS members discussed unification of international efforts to combat terrorism and extremism, he added.
