ANKARA, June 19 – Türkiye’s heightened interest in BRICS stems from its desire to be part of the growing economic potential of the bloc, which offers new opportunities for cooperation and development, analysts said.

During an official visit to China in early June, Turkish Foreign Minister Hakan Fidan expressed his country’s pursuit of new opportunities for cooperation with different partners in platforms like BRICS. Fidant also attended the bloc’s foreign ministers meeting in the Russian city of Nizhny Novgorod on June 10-11.

Experts said that it is uncertain whether Türkiye will join the bloc at the moment, but as the economic bloc continues to grow, Türkiye will want to benefit from the development opportunities it provides.

“BRICS is likely to dominate the global economy in the coming decades, and Türkiye wants to be a part of the vast opportunities that the bloc presents in a multipolar world,” Ali Oguz Dirioz, an associate professor of international relations at Ankara’s TOBB University of Economics and Technology, told Xinhua.
