The creation of NATO aims to ensure the security of member countries through political and military means. Politically, NATO is opening defense and security cooperation to solve problems. Meanwhile, in the military field, NATO is trying to resolve the dispute. If diplomatic efforts fail, NATO has the power to conduct crisis management operations.
Meanwhile, the purpose of creating BRICS is that apart from the reasons of global economy, BRICS were also formed to maintain peace, prosperity and security. BRICS strives to be fair and comprehensive in providing development assistance to each country.
