BRICS Members Russia, U.A.E., and Ethiopia Cooperate in Time of Crisis

There is clear, growing cooperation among old and new BRICS members Russia, United Arab Emirates, and Ethiopia to deal with the ongoing crisis brought about by war in Ukraine and Southwest Asia, and destabilization in Africa.

U.A.E. President Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan held a telephone discussion with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Feb. 5. “The parties discussed a range of issues of the regional and international agenda during talks, including the conflict between Russia and Ukraine,” a Kremlin press service statement said. The presidents reaffirmed the two countries’ position of principle—Russia and the U.A.E. believe it is necessary to establish a ceasefire as soon as possible and resume the political process with a view to reaching a long-term and fair solution to the Palestinian problem on the known legal basis.

During the exchange of views on the situation in Ukraine, Vladimir Putin thanked the Emirati side for the mediation efforts in facilitating the exchange of detainees. The Presidents discussed in detail the terrorist attack by the Kiev regime on the Russian Il-76 aircraft with Ukrainian POWs aboard, carried out on Jan. 24, 2024. Russia’s interest in conducting an international investigation into this crime was emphasized, according to the President’s website.

The U.A.E. President stressed “the consistent approach of the U.A.E. towards keeping peace and stability” and expressed “readiness to support any initiatives and undertakings that may soften humanitarian consequences of the Ukrainian crisis,” reported TASS..
