“We do not
reject any formats, but returning to the G8 is not an end in itself. Today,
such a format does not exist anymore. Since Russia left this platform, other
forms of interaction, such as BRICS and G20, have been actively developed,”
said Leonid Slutskiy
Leonid Eduardoviсh .
According to him, “if Russia receives an invitation to participate in the G7 summit in 2020, the event’s agenda and ensuring of the equal rights of all parties should be considered.”
“It should not be reduced to ritual actions considering an aggressive anti-Russian sanctions policy of the G7 countries,” believes Leonid Slutskiy.
“The Trump’s idea of the revival of the G8 format once again proves the important role of Russia on the international arena The steps of the G7 to contain and isolate our country will ultimately lead to nothing. Both the President of the United States and the President of France recognize this,” said Leonid Slutskiy.
