The head of the European Council stands for the preservation of the G7 format

The head of the European Council Donald Tusk spoke in favor of the preservation of the “Group of seven” in the current format.

“I have heard a lot of speculation, but the “seven” is a lucky number, at least in our culture,” D. Tusk said at a press conference at the G7 summit, responding to a request to comment on the recent statements of us President Donald trump, who previously spoke in favor of Russia’s return to the G8.

D. Tusk also said that despite all the differences, the “big seven” (G7) holds similar views on most issues, including policy towards Russia.
