Medvedev, vice chairman of the Security Council of the Russian Federation, gave a joint interview to the Russian media and expressed his views on Russian-US relations, the situation at home and abroad in Russia, and the COVID-19 pandemic.
He said that Russia will not return to the Group of Eight, which is already an outdated dialogue mechanism.
Vice President of the Security Council of the Russian Federation Medvedev: We are not willing to return to the G8 (G8) now, not because we are angry, but because we are not rational and unnecessary to discuss this issue.
For example, we have discussed some economic issues, but without the participation of other major countries, such as China and India.
What’s the point of this discussion? To be honest, the G8 has no future and significance.
Speaking of Russian-American relations, Medvedev said that there will be no major changes in Russian-American relations, and American political layers are not interested in normalizing Russian-American relations.
In addition, Medvedev also praised multilateral cooperation mechanisms such as the G20, BRICS countries, the Shanghai Cooperation Organization and the Eurasian Economic Union in the interview, and believed that these mechanisms have played a huge role in solving international economic, political and other issues, through which the world should Solve existing problems.
