WASHINGTON, April 20 (Reuters) – U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen advised her counterpart from Indonesia that there will be no “business-as-usual” for Russia in the international financial state supplied its invasion of Ukraine, the Treasury Office said in a statement on Wednesday.
Yellen told Indonesian Finance Minister Sri Mulyani Indrawati for the duration of a meeting on Tuesday that the United States will continue to function with Indonesia, which now leads the Group of 20 important economies, to advance G20 small business.
