UPDATE 2: Russia focuses on formats other than G8 Ц PutinТs spox

(Adds TrumpТs statement in paragraphs 4Ц5)

WASHINGTON, Jun 8 (PRIME) -- Moscow has switched its focus from the Group of Eight leading industrial nations (G8) format to other formats, President Vladimir PutinТs spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Friday.

Earlier no Friday, Bloomberg reported that U.S. President Donald Trump thought that Russia should return to the G8, while Reuters reported TrumpТs statement that Russia should participate in the current summit of the G7.

When asked for comment on the statement, Peskov said, УWe focus on other formats.Ф

Trump told reporters, УI would recommend it, and itТs up to them, but Russia should be at the meeting.Ф The G7 countries Уhave a world to run,Ф so Russia should be at the negotiating table.

УRussia should be at this meeting. Why are we having a meeting without Russia being at the meeting?Ф he said.
