Mr. Trump said last week he will postpone a G7 summit he had hoped to hold next month until September or later and expand the list of invitees to include Australia, Russia, South Korea and India.

There is a sense of disquiet about Trump's invitation to India and three other nations, especially at a time when he is seeking to isolate Beijing with a raft of measures including withdrawing the special status to Hong Kong in response to new Chinese security law for the former British colony, putting curbs on the Chinese students above undergraduate level, pulling the United States out of the World Health Organisation pointing to its links to China.

Russia was expelled from what was previously the G8 in 2014 after invading and seizing Crimea from Ukraine and declaring it part of Russian territory.

Russian President Vladimir Putin had a phone conversation with his USA counterpart Donald Trump at the initiative of the US side, discussing issues related to the Group of Seven (G7) Summit and oil markets, the Kremlin said Monday.

He said: "Russia was excluded from the G7 after it invaded Crimea a number of years ago, and its continued disrespect and flaunting of worldwide rules and norms is why it remains outside of the G7, and it will continue to remain out".

Mr. Boehm remembers Mr. Trump raising it at the G7 meeting in Charlevoix, Que., and other leaders disagreeing with him.

"It's a very outdated group of countries", said Trump, who appears to be searching for a way to counter China on the global stage, on Saturday.

Decisions on G7 membership are subject to the unanimous backing of all members. "Russia was removed following its annexation of Crimea and we are yet to see evidence of its behavior that would justify its readmission".

A spokesman for the UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson said he would veto any proposal to allow Russian Federation to rejoin the group. The group's presidency rotates annually among member countries.

"At recent G7s, the host country has invited countries from outside the group". "We believe this is also the wish of most countries".

Despite heavy opposition from his counterparts in the G7, Donald Trump has repeatedly suggested the former member should rejoin. "So it might be a G-10, G-11, and it could be after the election is over", Trump said.

After delaying this years summit due to ongoing concerns from coronavirus, Trump reissued the same statement.
