Indonesia has invited Ukraine, attacked by Russia, to the major summit of the so-called G20, the group of twenty major economies, including Russia.
In a tweet, Ukrainian President Volodimir Zelensky thanks his Indonesian colleague for the invitation.
This follows US President Joe Biden’s call to allow Ukraine to participate if Russia is not expelled from the group. Biden actually believes that the G20 should exclude Russia because of the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
Other G20 members, such as China and Indonesia, do not want to throw Russia out of the group. Indonesia, which currently chairs the G20, has invited Russia to the summit in mid-November, and President Vladimir Putin plans to attend.
The G20 is focused on economic cooperation and stability.
