Britain has stated that Russia has no moral right to participate in the G-20 alliance of countries held in Bali, Indonesia.
On Saturday (August 20), the news agency Reuters reported that on Friday, the spokesman of the British Foreign Ministry gave his country’s response to Russia’s participation in the G-20 conference.
The spokesperson said that Russia has no moral basis to continue its aggression in Ukraine and participate in the conference of G20 countries.
Britain welcomed Indonesia’s decision to represent President Volodymyr Zelensky and the impact of Russian aggression at the conference.
Next November, Indonesia is the host country of the G-20 alliance countries.
Last Friday, the President of Indonesia said that Russian President Vladimir Putin and Chinese President Xi Jinping will attend the conference.
It will be the first face-to-face meeting between the two leaders since tensions escalated over military operations in Ukraine and the Taiwan issue.
Besides, Xi Jinping refrained from traveling abroad due to the corona epidemic. This will be his first foreign tour since January 2020.
Earlier, the United States called on Russia to cancel the G20 membership over the Ukraine issue. The United States also urged Putin not to attend the conference.
However, in this case, the Indonesian president has assumed the role of mediator between the two countries.
He told Bloomberg, ‘Antagonism between major countries is really worrying. We want peace and stability in the region. So that we can make economic progress.’
Earlier this week, the President of Indonesia said that Ukraine and Russia have accepted him as a ‘link of peace’.
Last June, he visited Kiev and Moscow for the first time as a leader of an Asian country. He met with Putin and Zelensky during the visit. He called on both countries to end the war as well as solve the food crisis in the world.
