relevance of BRICS lost now. BEICS or SCO is over shadowed by China and junior partner Russia. Nothing else. IBS India, Brazil, South Africa should have separate organization abandoning the above two. Also needs to ensure QUAD plus. Other organisations like FIJI France, India, Japan, Israel also needed to be formed considering dilly dallying present QUAD and US have no clear cut commitment. A non Islamist, non Communist nations fighting for common interest named Economic and Technological Cooperation needed to be formed. in future convert into anti China military alliance to strengthen existi g QUAD plus. Also have a clear upper hand in QUAD for Japan, India. France as major European power and it's acceptability on global affairs will be act as be alance of power against China, Russia. be and bin reading global influence.
