Chinese President Xi Jinping and Russian leader Vladimir Putin are both planning to attend a Group of 20 summit on the resort island of Bali later this year, Indonesian President Joko Widodo said.

"Xi Jinping will come. President Putin has also told me he will come,” said Jokowi, as the president is known. It was the first time the leader of the world’s fourth-most populous nation confirmed both of them were planning to show up at the November summit.

The presence of Xi and Putin at the meeting would set up a showdown with U.S. President Joe Biden and other democratic leaders, all of whom are set to meet in person for the first time since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. The attack, which came shortly after Putin and Xi declared a "no limits” partnership, has left the G20 divided over whether to place sanctions on Russia.
