MOSCOW, March 31 (RIA Novosti) - Finance ministers
and central bankers from the post-Soviet Commonwealth of
Independent States (CIS) support Russia's proposals for the
summit of G20 leaders, Russia's finance minister said on
"The measures Russia plans to discuss at the Group of 20
summit were supported in general," Alexei Kudrin, who is also a
deputy prime minister, told reporters after meeting his
colleagues from the CIS.
Russia has submitted a proposal for the summit due in
London on April 2 for the IMF to examine creating a
supra-national reserve currency, the move also supported by
China, and suggestions to reform international financial
organizations in the wake of the economic crisis, which include
the diversification of countries' foreign currency reserves to
reduce the emphasis on the dollar.
