The administration of Joe Biden will not invite Russia to join the group of world leaders G7, White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki said today, moving away from the position of former President Donald Trump, who advocated Moscow’s membership in that group.

Any invitation to Russia to join the G7 would be made in partnership with all other member countries of the group, Psaki told reporters who were with her on the Air Force One presidential plane.

In June, Trump called the G7 a very outdated group of countries and said he would like to bring Russia, Australia, South Korea, and India into their ranks.

“I don’t think we are sending new invitations to Russia,” Psaki added.

The G7 virtual meeting was the first event of the Democratic American president with other world leaders in a group that includes Britain, Japan, France, Germany, Italy, and Canada.
