The expansion of BRICS shows its bright prospects, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Wang Wenbin said on Tuesday at a daily press briefing.

Saudi Arabia, Egypt, the United Arab Emirates, Iran and Ethiopia joined BRICS on January 1, doubling its membership from five to 10.

Wang said China is fully confident in the future of BRICS, and noted that the BRICS cooperation mechanism has increased cohesiveness and influence and become a positive and stable force for good in international affairs.

At the request of relevant countries, the membership of BRICS was expanded, which serves the common aspiration of emerging markets and developing countries, and follows the global trend towards multipolarity, Wang said.

"We will work with BRICS partners to strive for new results in greater BRICS cooperation," the spokesperson added.
