SYDNEY (Reuters) – Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison said on Thursday he had raised concerns about Russian President Vladimir Putin’s plans to attend the next G20 summit in Indonesia this year.
“The idea of sitting around a table with Vladimir Putin, whom the United States already has the capacity to denounce war crimes in Ukraine for me, is a step too far,” Morrison said during a news conference.
Russia’s ambassador to Indonesia on Wednesday said Putin intends to attend the G20 summit, dismissing suggestions by some G20 members that Russia could be excluded from the group.
