South Korea, Australia and India play important roles in Washington's Indo-Pacific strategy, which is seen as a counterweight to Beijing's Belt and Road cross-border infrastructure initiative.

The Kremlin has "more questions than answers" about Donald Trump's proposal to invite Russia to a Group of Seven summit later this year, spokesman Dmitry Peskov said a day after the US president raised the idea with his Russian counterpart in a phone call.

Last week, Trump said he will be postponing the G7 summit he had hoped to hold next month until September or later.

In addition, the presidents addressed world oil market developments in the context of implementing the OPEC+ agreement.

Asked for his reaction about Trump's plans to invite India and three other nations to G7 summit, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian told a media that "China believes all global organisations and conferences should be conducive to mutual trust between countries to upholding multilateralism, promoting world peace and development".

Trump told Putin about the idea in a phone call on Monday, according to readouts of the conversation published by the Kremlin and the White House.

Trump's invitation to Russian Federation is regarded as a source of concern for China as Beijing had built up close relations with Moscow ever since it was expelled from what was previously known as G8 in 2014 by Trump's predecessor Barack Obama, following Russia's takeover of Crimea.

"Decisions on G-7 membership need to be made unanimously by all G-7 leaders", Prime Minister Boris Johnson's spokesman James Slack said Monday.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau rejected the idea of inviting Russian President Vladimir Putin, citing his "continued disrespect and flaunting of worldwide rules and norms". "We believe this is also the wish of most countries".

The statement continued: "We would not support it being readmitted as a member of the group unless it ceases aggressive and destabilising activity that threatens the safety of United Kingdom citizens and the collective security of our allies".

He added he felt the group didn't "properly represents what's going on in the world".
