MINSK, 11 June (BelTA) – Belarus' application to upgrade its status at BRICS is taken very seriously by the organization, Belarusian Minister of Foreign Affairs Sergei Aleinik said at an expanded-participation session of the BRICS Foreign Ministers’ Meeting in Russia’s Nizhny Novgorod on 11 June, BelTA has learned. 

Sergei Aleinik noted that this is the first time Belarus is participating in the foreign ministers' meeting within the framework of the BRICS Plus dialogues.
