- Maduro Announced the Construction of a New Financial System by the BRICS Countries
Translated from Russian
Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro Moros , speaking to the diplomatic corps in Caracas, announced the construction of a new financial system by the BRICS countries – Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa. It will not repeat the fate of the dollar and will not be used as a political tool against other countries, the leader said. His words are quoted by RIA Novosti .
“Five developing countries that have begun to build the architecture of financial, economic, commercial and political cooperation are striving to become one of the main actors in the emerging world,” the head of state emphasized.
According to Maduro, the new system will open doors to all countries of the world, will not use the international banking system to cause damage or regime change, as happened in Venezuela. The President added that his country has recovered from the disconnection from the SWIFT system and does not want to return to it, since the sanctions were dictated by ideological motives. The leader recalled that the state is forbidden to use the dollar, and said that the international currency cannot be used in geopolitical blackmail. It should be a stable currency that can withstand world conflicts and to which all countries of the world have equal access, he concluded.
Earlier it became known that the European Union (EU) and the United States held the first high-level meeting on Russia, during which they agreed to continue isolating the Russian economy, including from the global financial system, as well as to cooperate in matters of sanctions pressure.
