Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov intends to hold bilateral talks with a number of his counterparts from the G20 member states during a meeting in Bali, Indonesia.

There will be a series of meetings," Lavrov told the Russian news agency "TASS" today, Wednesday, during a visit to Vietnam, without specifying which countries he will hold talks with.

On Thursday, the meeting of foreign ministers of the G20 states will kick off in Bali.

US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken has already declined to meet Lavrov. Many politicians criticized Lavrov's participation in the meeting, against the backdrop of the ongoing Russian attack on Ukraine.

Noteworthy,  Lavrov's participation in the meeting tomorrow aims to test the feelings of the possible participation of Russian President Vladimir Putin himself in the summit of the group scheduled in Bali later this year.
