Reported AFP, Thursday (6/30/2022), Indonesia hosted the G20 summit. The planned presence of Russian President Vladimir Putin was in the spotlight after the conflict in Ukraine.
“We hope that Canada and all G7 members will attend the G20,” Trudeau said when asked if Canada would attend even if Putin did.
“Discussions about the global economy are too important. It’s too important for us to be there to fight the voices and lies that Russia might put forward. There are still months to go before that and anything can happen,” he added.
