Canada does not support Russia's return to the Group of Seven, proposed by US President Donald Trump over the weekend, because Moscow continues to flout worldwide law, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said yesterday.

Amid the coronavirus pandemic, Trump said last week that he would postpone until the fall a meeting of the G7 leading industrialized nations that he had planned to hold next month, and plans to invite Russia, Australia, South Korea, and India.

But he said President Trump informed President Putin about the invitation during a phone call on Monday.

"Russia was excluded from the G7 after it invaded Crimea a number of years ago, and its continued disrespect and flaunting of global rules and norms is why it remains outside of the G7, and it will continue to remain out", Trudeau said during his daily news conference.

Context: Russia was disinvited from attending the annual meeting of the eight largest advanced economies in the world in 2014 for annexing Crimea.

The Kremlin also said that Mr Putin thanked Mr Trump for a batch of USA ventilators sent to Russian Federation and the two leaders talked about steps their countries have taken to combat the coronavirus outbreak.

Trump has previously said he supports returning Russian Federation to the G7.

This isn't the first time Trump has mused about bringing Russian Federation back to the G7 - he made similar comments two years ago on the eve of a leaders' summit that Trudeau hosted in Charlevoix, Que. Trump told reporters that he feels the current makeup of the group is "very outdated" and doesn't properly represent "what's going on in the world"'. Canada and the USA were mired in contentious renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement at the time, and Trudeau reiterated his opposition to US steel and aluminum tariffs at the summit's closing press conference.
