Leaders Who Will Be Absent

Regrettably, Chinese President Xi Jinping and Russian President Vladimir Putin will not attend the summit. Vladimir Putin faces an arrest warrant by the International Criminal Court for “war crimes” in Ukraine, making international travel a risk. Chinese President Xi Jinping’s absence remains unexplained.
