CAIRNS, September 19. /ITAR-TASS/. The Group of Twenty (G20) members have supported Russia’s participation in the G20, Australian chief treasurer Joe Hockey told reporters on Friday. He will preside over the G20 meeting of foreign ministers and heads of Central Banks that will be held on September 20 -21.

Asked whether Australia would try to block Russia’s participation in the G20 summit in Brisbane due in November, Hockey said not Australia, but G20 members take decisions on anybody’s participation in G20 work.

The G20 member countries say the door should not be closed, and Russia should take part in the forum. The dialogue should be continued, according to all the G20 member countries. He said G20 is an economic, not a political forum.

Hockey also said Russia’s delegation led by Deputy Finance Minister Sergei Storchak takes part in the Financial G20 meeting in Cairns. The Australian chief treasurer said Russia supports a number of Australia’s initiatives within G20, which is very encouraging.

The G20 members are Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Britain, Germany, the EU, India, Indonesia, Italy, Canada, China, Mexico, Russia, Saudi Arabia, the USA, Turkey, France, South Africa, South Korea and Japan. The G20 member countries account for more than 85% of world GDP and 80% of world trade.
