G7 decision on Russia counter-productive -Official

The decision by G7 leaders to exclude Russia from the G8 summit in June is ‘counter-productive’, says a spokesman for President Vladimir Putin.

“We have an interest in these contacts,” Dmitry Peskov was quoted as saying by the Interfax news agency.

In spite of the summit being moved from Sochi to Brussels, Russia and the West were still in talks at expert level, he said.

Moscow was willing to keep up dialogue with those who wanted it, especially on the global fight against drugs and terrorism, according to Peskov.
