This is a FAQ.  In fact, an EFAQ (an Extremely Frequently Asked Question).

You have 3 routers: 193.xxx.xxx.1, 193.xxx.xxx.3 and 193.xxx.xxx.5.  You
want to exchange prefixes between .1 and .5, where .3 is in the middle.
iBGP will not do this for you by default;  this is to avoid routing loops:

To propagate prefixes between the .1 and .5, you either need to set .3 up
as a route reflector, or else set up full mesh BGP so that .1 talks
directly to .5.  As you appear to have a proper IGP setup, the latter
shouldn't be a problem.
