The Foreign Ministers of BRICS called for an immediate peaceful solution to the Afghanistan issue to enhance security and stability in the region.

In a statement, the BRICS Foreign Ministers wrote that tangible actions should be taken in Afghanistan to ensure that terrorist groups do not use Afghan soil.

They emphasised on Afghanistan's independence and peace and supported an Afghanistan free from terrorism, war, and drugs.

The BRICS Foreign Ministers' meeting was held for two days (June 10 and 11) in the city of Nizhny Novgorod, Russia.

According to the statement, the BRICS Foreign Ministers stressed on the need for immediate and uninterrupted humanitarian assistance to the people of Afghanistan and the protection of the fundamental rights of all Afghans, including women, girls, and various ethnic groups.

BRICS, consisting of major emerging economies including Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa, was formed in 2010 with the goal of seeking a stake in the global order. Iran joined this group last year.

The Foreign Ministers of this organisation discussed international issues, strategies to enhance global governance, conflict resolution in multilateral frameworks, and emphasized increasing the influence of developing countries.
