Erdogan suddenly asked in BRICS
A proposal to expand the group asked the BRICS members, the President of Turkey Recep Tayyip Erdogan. He stated this at a press conference in Johannesburg. If we accept this supranational structure of Turkey, the group will be called BRIXT, said Erdogan.
The news, long-awaited, having both geopolitical and economic importance. Turkey aspires to a leading role in the Turkic and Islamic world. And the chance to become the main center of power in the Islamic world, Turkey is much higher than that of Saudi Arabia or Shiite Iran. Turks in the world 160-165 million, including citizens living in the national republics of the Russian Federation – Tatarstan, Bashkortostan, Yakutia.
Muslims in the world today 1.5 billion Modern Turkey in terms of GDP ranks 18th in the world ($800 billion). The international reserves of the country amount to $130.8 á billion.
We have repeatedly pointed out that in the case of the collapse of the global dollar zone, the BRICS have all chances to become centers of regional monetary zones. This also applies to Turkey. In this case the interests of Russia and Turkey are at odds on the geopolitical prospects of Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan. Both these countries belong to the Eurasian Union and at the same time belong to the Turkic world, which, as noted above, Turkey seeks to play a leading role. So with a single Eurasian currency Russia should hurry up, and that the emission center will not be in Moscow or Astana and Ankara.
Anyway, there is a tendency – the West is gradually losing its controlling stake in the global economy, and the unity of the NATO countries all the more ghostly. It is also possible that Berlin and Paris will soon be very sorry that they did not take their Turkey to the EU.
Previously, we predicted that the BRICS summit may be sharp and sensational, and explain what key issues should be addressed to the heads of state at this meeting.
