According to Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi, Russian President Vladimir Putin will not be traveling to Indonesia in person for the G20 summit in the fall. The Indonesian President Joko Widodo, as the host of the G20 meeting, said that clearly, Draghi reported on Tuesday after the G7 summit in Bavaria, which Widodo attended as a guest at times.
“Widodo rules that out and was categorical about it. He (Putin) will not come.” It is unclear whether the Kremlin chief wants to take part in the G20 summit via video link. “We’ll see what will happen,” Draghi said.
