"Without China it's simply impossible to discuss any issues in the modern world."

An unfortunate reality. With China expanding its global reach via its Belt and Road and other means, with the Russian Federation expanding its global reach via its Eurasian Economic Union and through sales of fossil fuels, and with Trump's USA fading fast, it could well be the world soon sees the G-however-many reduced to G2, just the Chinese and Russian empires controlling the planet. Given the two have similar political-economic systems, slightly different variations on national socialism, it will be interesting to watch whether they share.

It is the very fact that those two nations are "expanding" and affecting and influencing the entire world significantly, that they must be included so that all are aware of and may deal directly with any misdeeds. The old saying "Keep your enemies close" definitely makes sense if you say "Keep those that affect us negatively or positively close". Like it or not they are not just affecting but influencing and effecting the entire wold.

With all of the annexing of foreign lands going on between these two countries, Russia & China, neither of them should be allowed back in until they change their imperialistic ways.

Trump excused Putin's Russia putting bounties on American soldiers heads, and is still pushing his political power to getting Russia a seat at the table.

The American military must respect that, yeah?

That probably has been trump’s strategy all along.

He gets Russia in , who gets China in and all of trump’s friends are happy.

it is possible China will join in the G7 Group which also covers both Russia and USA. Which now seem impossible. however who can predict the situation five months on or even five years on? just like nobody foresaw the situation now just one year before.

As if the other six countries are going to let in Russia and China. I’d castigate my leaders if they did that.
