MOSCOW, September 6. /TASS/. The latest Group of Twenty summit in China has proved success of Russia’ foreign policy and Russian President Vladimir Putin personally and has put an end to attempts to isolate Russia, a senior Russian lawmaker said on Tuesday.
"The result is an absolutely obvious end to any attempts to isolate Russia," Alexei Pushkov, the chairman of the international committee of the Russian State Duma lower parliament house, said in an interview with the Life Zvuk radio station. "As compared with the previous Group of Twenty summit in Brisbane [in 2014], this one is obviously a demonstration of success of our foreign policy. And of Vladimir Putin in particular, as there was a feeling that a key event of the summit was a meeting with the Russian president."
According to the lawmaker, the results of the G20 summit, "which takes the temperature of global politics," prove that the policy of isolating Russia has completely failed. "We have been saying it for a long time that there can be no isolation of Russia. So, it has not merely failed, it has failed demonstratively and this fact has become absolutely apparent at the Group of Twenty summit," Pushkov stressed.
The Group of Twenty is an international forum specializing in issues of global economy and finance. It incorporates 19 countries, namely Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, Great Britain, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Russia, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, South Korea, Turkey, and the United States, and the European Union. The Group of Twenty nations with a population of about two thirds of the entire world’s population account for more than 80% of the global GDP and 80% of global trade.
The latest Group of Twenty summit was held in China’s Hangzhou on September 4-5.
