Algeria is interested in joining the BRICS + Iran nuclear talks could resume in coming days

Algeria is the latest MENA country to want in on BRICS: Algerian President Abdelmadjid Tebboune said that his country wants to join the BRICS group of major emerging economies, AFP reports. The group, which currently includes China, Russia, India, Brazil and South Africa, has received more attention this year as developing countries hedge against the economic warfare between the G7 and Russia and opt for multipolarity. Iran and Argentina have both applied to become members this year, while Egypt, Saudi Arabia and Turkey have also been said to be considering joining. Bids from new countries will reportedly be discussed at next year’s summit in South Africa.

Could Iran nuclear talks finally restart? A new round of talks on reviving the US-Iran 2015 nuclear agreement will “probably” kick off within days in Vienna, according to a senior Iranian official, according to Bloomberg.
