Indonesian President: Xi Jinping and Putin will be at the G20 summit

Chinese President Xi Jinping and Russian President Vladimir Putin will attend the G20 summit in Indonesia. This was announced by the Indonesian president, Joko Widodo, in an interview with Bloomberg. “Xi Jinping will come. Putin also told me he will be there,” said the Indonesian leader.

It is the first time that Widodo has confirmed the presence of the two presidents at the November summit. In recent months, Joe Biden has called for Russia to be kicked out of the G20 in response to its invasion of Ukraine. And several officials in the US administration pressured Widodo not to invite Putin to the summit.
