South Sudan Seeks to Join BRICS 'When Time Comes,' Foreign Minister Says
"I think BRICS is mainly for the development. And South Sudan is going to take its time to see how we can join it, as was already said by our president. And most of the work is always that the BRICS has impressed many countries around the globe. And we also will be part of that group when the time comes," the foreign minister stressed.
"As a new nation, we are looking for where we can fit better. And we also can be received by friends who can welcome us into the club so that we can become part of them. But for the time being, as the president said, of course the work will go to our technical people to study and find the ways of how we could fit in. [...] So it will take its time, and then we will come and be part of our friends who are already there. But for the time being, I think the technical people will be to study it, and then we will come," he said.
