NATIONAL ASSEMBLY

FOR WRITTEN REPLY

QUESTION NO: 1785 (NW2004E) AS PUBLISHED IN IQP NO: 14-2015 OF 15 MAY 2015

MR MA HOOSEN (DA) TO ASK THE MINISTER OF INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS AND COOPERATION:

(1) Has South Africa, as a member of the BRICS bloc, signed any international agreements from 1 January 2010 until the latest specified date for which information is available, to aid any of the countries in the grouping with (a) military personnel, (b) military equipment and/or (c) intelligence services should any of the countries enter into an armed conflict; if so, what are the details of such commitments and/or agreements?

REPLY:

(1) No. There are also no agreements currently being negotiated. The BRICS intergovernmental grouping has no formalised cooperation in the area of defence and, therefore, no such agreements among BRICS countries as a group pertain.
