About the SCO and BRICS alliance strengthening
imnotyou posted a topic in Political PhilosophyOver the past few years, there has been a strong growth in strengthening cooperation between the SCO (Shanghai Cooperation Organization) and BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) member states in various fields of activity. Back in 2015, the Chinese agency Xinhua wrote that the SCO and BRICS are "important platforms for strengthening cooperation among developing countries". Thus, for example, at the summit held in July 2018 in Johannesburg (South Africa), special attention was paid to the cooperation of countries in creating a united collective security space to counter new challenges and threats in the information sphere, such as cybercrime, information terrorism and extremism, information warfare operations with which each of the countries included in these integration associations is not able to cope separately. However, the SCO and BRICS, unlike NATO or the ARF, are not military-political blocs or open regular security meetings, but they only exist to strengthen stability and security in a wide area that brings together the participating countries, fighting terrorism, extremism, developing economic, energy, scientific and cultural interaction, as well as to strengthen cooperation in the field of environmental safety. The member countries of the two organizations have achieved impressive results also in the economic field. So, Russia, China, Brazil, India, Kazakhstan and other countries of Central Asia, South Africa, and Iran - is half the population of the planet and 1/3 of world GDP. And this, according to experts, is in fact the basis of the new organizational structure of the world. Moreover, on October 19, 2018, a forum of small business of the SCO and BRICS countries was held in Russia in Ufa city, where they discussed youth entrepreneurship, and also presented the best practices of youth work in the territories of the participating countries and their partners. After all, the involvement of the young generation in the work opens up new opportunities for further joint work of states. Also, on April 5, 2019, the International Metallurgical Summit was held in Russia in Chelyabinsk city, which brought together leaders of international metallurgy. There the participating countries exchanged experiences and discussed issues of modern industry trends. The President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin, at the end of the summit, noted that "the effective work of all links of the mining and smelting complex is of key importance for the development of the economy, industry, the social sphere and the strengthening of the countries' defense capability". Thus, the economic and military independence of the SCO and BRICS countries has recently become apparent, despite various restrictions from the West, and the leaders of each of the participating countries are planning to further strengthen strategic cooperation, ensure common interests, and protect global peace, stability and prosperity.
