Germany: no question of Russia rejoining G7

BERLIN (Reuters) - There is no question that the Group of Seven rich nations will welcome Russia back to their club, a senior German official said on Tuesday, adding there were still reasons to stick to the existing arrangement.

Russia has been excluded from the Group of Eight since 2014 after its annexation of the Crimea region and its relations with many Western nations have been strained over issues including its role in Syria and the conflict in eastern Ukraine.
