Prime Minister Canada, Justin Trudeaurefused the presence of the President Russia, Vladimir Poutineat the G20 summit in Bali in November.
He expressed Trudeau’s refusal during a communication with the President of Indonesia, Joko Widodo (Jokowi), Thursday (3/31). According to him, Putin’s presence at the G20 will pose a big problem for him and this forum will be unproductive.
“It will be a big issue for many countries, including Canada. (The G20 is about) how we manage and encourage global economic growth,” Trudeu said.
He then claimed, “Russia with its illegal invasion of Ukraine is hampering the economic growth of everyone in the world.”
He felt that the country of the red bear could not be a constructive partner in managing the crisis created by the country for its aggression in Ukraine.
“At the end of the day, it’s not normal for Vladimir Putin to sit around the table pretending that everything is fine. Because it was not right and it was his fault,” Trudeau explained.
Putin’s presence at the G20 has become a public conversation after Indonesia decided to invite all countries of this organization. Some thought he didn’t need to be invited because of his military aggression in Ukraine.
Those who rejected Putin were also present, including the United States, Britain, Australia and other Western countries.
Recently, even the President of the United States, Joe Biden, supported the expulsion of Russia from the G20.
However, there are also countries that support Russia to remain present at the international economic forum. These are Brazil and China.
China regards Russia as an important member of the G20, so no member has the right to obstruct Putin’s presence at this forum.
