Lavrov said the G8 has been superseded by the g20, a bigger club.
He's scheduled for a g20 Summit in St. Petersburg this week.
This is not a G7 or g20 but a G-zero world, and President Obama/Romney must learn to make the most of it.
Putin thumbed his nose at Obama and the rest of the world during the g20 summit.
The first day of the g20 summit made it clear that the Russian president feels that he owns the debate.
Add a g20 summit in Mexico next month, and the new guy in the Elysée Palace will already know anybody who is anybody.
Is it “whistleblowing” to reveal how the United States and Britain spy on diplomats at the g20?
Under the circumstances, the g20 could also be asked to wait.
This animosity is now on full display at the g20 summit in St. Petersburg.
