Russian deputy foreign minister Georgy Mamedov claimed yesterday that Boris Yeltsin will arrive in Denver for the July G-7 summit with other group leaders, and that Russia will take part in all of the G-7’s discussions — political and economic. Mamedov was speaking after a summit preparatory meeting in Washington. He said that the Clinton Administration had pushed for the expanded Russian role, and that London hoped to keep the same format at the 1998 summit in Birmingham. (Itar-Tass, April 15)
