Moscow is studying the proposal by trump to invite Russia to the summit G7
Moscow is studying the proposal of the President of the United States Donald trump to invite Russia to the G7 summit, said Russian Deputy foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov.
Previously, trump said that he carries a meeting "the Big seven" in September and wants to invite an additional four countries: Russia, India, Australia and the Republic of Korea. According to him, the presence of Russia in the G7 requires common sense.
"Attitude is concerned. We, of course, the study that was proposed by the President of the United States. But I want to note, first of all occurring circumstances, which are very important from our point of view. The first is a steady, in our view, the extinction of the "sevens" format, which set the tone for the solution of many important international problems in various fields from the economy to the major issues of conflict resolution. "Seven" is no longer what it was before, it is a reflection of objective processes of formation of multipolarity," - said Ryabkov in an online interview.
He noted that, in General, for Russia are given higher priority other formats, among them the "big twenty", which, according to Moscow, is the most democratic and inclusive format, as well as BRICS.
"I believe that the "seven" in the form as it was presented on the American side, reflects somewhat one-sided view of the problems at least due to the fact that among the invited to this group, no people's Republic of China," - said Ryabkov.
