(International Business Times) The U.S. is finding itself increasingly isolated as more of its allies seek to join the China-led Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB). A day after Brazil announced it is "very interested" in joining the AIIB, China's finance ministry reportedly said on Saturday that the U.K. and Switzerland had been accepted as the founding members of the bank.

In addition, Russia also announced its decision to join the China-led institution on Saturday, according to media reports.
