Finance Minister says Russia does not feel unwelcomed at G20


(MENAFN) Russia’s delegation "felt no isolation" at the G20 conference which took place this week in Indonesia, Finance Minister Anton Siluanov, who participated in the meeting, informed RT on Wednesday. Earlier, the Telegraph had said that Western nations were trying to make Russian officials feel unwanted at the conference.

"I can say it on behalf of our whole delegation: we felt no isolation here," Siluanov announced.
The group of Russian officials was led by the foreign minister, Sergey Lavrov. President Vladimir Putin did not head to Bali as "certain circumstances" asked him to stay in Russia, the Kremlin stated on Monday.

As said by Siluanov, "some Western officials" did hint at their intent to put measures on Russia in addition to indicating that Moscow "needs to wrap up its special operation." Yet, "no key issue was discussed without Russia since our nation [represents] a sizeable part of the world economy," the minister continued. He as well declared the meeting members talked over a whole range of problems in which Moscow has a big role, counting "energy, grain, healthcare and digitalization."
