Russia said on Monday it would be "impossible" for Moscow to return to the group of G7/G8 nations on an invitation of 'just one country', as all decisions in the group are made based on consensus, the Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said.

"For Russia, membership in G7 or return to the G7 is not a goal in itself," Peskov told reporters on a conference call.

U.S. President Donald Trump said on Monday that it would be advantageous to have Russia back to the G7/G8 group.
