On board Air Force One:
US President Joe Biden rejects a plan by his predecessor Donald Trump to invite Russia to the G7 club of rich democracies, the White House said on Friday.
“I don’t think we’re going to make new invitations to Russia or repeat new invitations to Russia,” press secretary Jen Psaki told reporters traveling with Biden on Air Force One.
“Of course, an invitation would be made in partnership with our G7 partners.”
Trump backed the idea last year. Russia was expelled from the then G8 in 2014 after occupying the Crimean region from neighboring Ukraine.
