Putin may attend G20 summit in India: Kremlin

Moscow (Russia), March 13: Russian President Vladimir Putin may attend the G20 summit in India later this year, but no decision has been made yet, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Monday.

"It cannot be ruled out. But no decision has been made yet," the Kremlin spokesman said.

The G20 summit is set to take place in September in India.

When asked if Putin would attend the summit in India, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said, "It cannot be ruled out," but added that no decision had been made yet.

"Russia continues to participate fully in the G20 format, and we intend to do so," Peskov said.

According to Peskov, the Group of Seven (G7) format does not reflect the global economy as a whole, which is why Moscow focuses on the G20 and BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa).

When asked to comment on a report by Western analysts that the BRICS nations' share of global GDP has surpassed that of the G7, he said: "Irrespective of the findings by these experts, it is safe to say that the economic clout of BRICS countries in the global economy is constantly growing.

Russia believes that the G7 format "obviously" fails to reflect the world's economic wants and needs because the global economy is not limited to the G7 nations. "The broader grouping, the G20, far more closely reflects the real state of affairs," he added.
