Russia Invites Greece to Be Sixth Member of BRICS New Development Bank
MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said earlier on Tuesday that Greece had not officially confirmed Tsipras' visit to St. Petersburg, but emphasized that "Moscow would welcome Greek officials at the St. Petersburg forum.

"I believe that in our forthcoming visit to St. Petersburg, where Alexis Tsipras will participate at the Forum where he has been invited, more details and I think detailed explanation on this proposal will be exposed from both sides," Kostas Isihos, who is co-chairman of the joint Russian-Greek Council for economic, industrial and scientific-technical cooperation, said.

"For Greece it would mean that it would be the first time in the European Union that accepts such a proposal if this proposal is of mutual benefit. So in a way Greece would contribute to the whole of Europe, opening new roads for cooperation not only with Russia, but with BRICS, which is a new world reality."
