Germany does not support the idea of returning Russia to the G7

Germany sees no possibility for the return of Russia to the format of the “Big seven”, said the foreign Minister Heiko Maas in an interview with Rheinische Post.

According to Maas, the reason for the exclusion of Russia from the “eight” was the annexation of Crimea and the situation in Ukraine. The diplomat stressed that while these issues are not resolved, Germany will oppose the invitation of Russia.

in addition, Maas criticized the idea of U.S. President Donald trump’s invitation to the G7 summit of four countries — Russia, India, South Korea and Australia. According to the politician, Berlin satisfied with the formats of the G7 and the G20.
