Poland pushes call for Russia to be excluded from G20
Poland stated Tuesday that it suggested that Russia be removed from the G20 group major economies. The suggestion received a positive response.
Piotr Nowak, Polish Minister for Economic Development and Technology, stated in a statement that this matter was discussed during meetings in Washington last week.
Nowak said that during meetings with Gina Raimondo (U.S. Commerce Secretary), we presented a proposal to exclude Russia. This was approved and received a positive response. The matter will now be transferred to President Joe Biden.”
The U.S. Department of Commerce did not immediately respond to the request. Although the U.S. Department of Commerce did not respond to the Polish statement, a separate source claimed that Russia had violated international norms. Therefore, there should be consequences for Russia’s participation in multilateral forums.
