Details: According to journalists, the Argentine President said that he does not see the economic benefits and feasibility of joining BRICS. He is ready to develop economic relations with all participating countries, but emphasizes that Argentina can establish bilateral ties without the mediation of the organization.

It is alleged that Miley opposed Argentina's membership in BRICS even before being elected president. During the election campaign, he spoke out for rapprochement with the United States, even to the extent of the possibility of the country switching from its national currency, the Argentine peso, to the American dollar.
