BRICS, the international governmental alliance comprising Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa and Iran, represents an opportunity for Serbia to ally with countries which demand nothing yet offer even more than Serbia asks, Serbia’s Deputy Prime Minister Aleksandar Vulin said on June 24.

In an op-ed for the Politika daily, Vulin insisted that he is not attempting to compare BRICS to the European Union or pit the two against each other, but rather to make it clear that an alternative to the EU exists.

Vulin added that he deeply believes the EU is nearing the end of its road and that “there is no room for Serbia in that club, even if [Serbia] gives up Kosovo and Metohija.”

“Joining BRICS does not require adopting any laws written outside of our country. You don’t have to hand over power to the non-governmental sector, are not obliged to fly Ukraine’s flag on your embassy or legalize same-sex marriages,” the official concluded.
