Assurance To The Indonesian President For The Participation Of The Russian And Chinese Presidents In The G20 Meeting
In a recent interview, the President of Indonesia mentioned that Russian President Vladimir Putin and Chinese President Xi Jinping have given him assurances that they will attend the G20 summit. It is reported that in the context of the attack on Ukraine, the President of Indonesia was under pressure from Western countries not to ask President Putin to participate in the meeting. This is believed to have occurred because the meeting was scheduled to take place in Indonesia. Additionally, Ukrainian President Zelensky has been invited to participate in the meeting by the President of Indonesia, Joko Widodo. The President of Ukraine has indicated that he is on board with the idea of participating in the meeting virtually. It is important to take note that the G20 conference will take place in November in Bali, Indonesia.
