The group is an emerging-market cooperative mechanism that initially included Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa. In January, it expanded its membership to include Saudi Arabia, Egypt, the United Arab Emirates, Iran, and Ethiopia.

Nikorndej said that his country submitted a formal letter of intent to join during the BRICS ministerial meeting over a week ago and hoped to receive positive feedback.

Joining BRICS will allow Thailand to leverage further in advancing South-South cooperation as well as to play a more proactive role and contribute to crafting the global architecture, affirmed the spokesman.

Thailand is also looking to join the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), after being invited by the Paris-based group to open accession discussions./.
