Trudeau reminded the world about the Crimea.
The Prime Minister of Canada Justin Trudeau has said his country opposes the return of the Russian Federation in the “Big seven” (G7) on the initiative of the President of the United States Donald trump. He was supported by the UK government, reports the Chronicle.info with reference to Browser.
The canadian leader recalled that Moscow continued to defy international law and occupy a foreign territory.
“Russia was excluded from the “Big seven” after she invaded Crimea a few years ago. And because of its continuing contempt for international rules and norms, which she flaunts, she remains outside the G7 and will stay out of it,” said Trudeau.
On the question of whether to take part in the summit “the Big seven”, if there will arrive the President of Russia Vladimir Putin, Prime Minister of Canada did not answer, saying that discussions before the meeting continues.
In addition, Trudeau added that the G20, which includes Russia, is a Union where there are countries “with which we are not always good relations”.
The “big seven” has always been a place for candid conversations with allies and friends. It is definitely something that I want to continue to see,” summed up the politician.
Later the same position was made by the office of the Prime Minister, Boris Johnson. They also stressed that as long as Crimea remains occupied by Russia, there is no reason to talk about her return to the “Big seven”.
