G20 Summit: Everything You Need To Know

Trump’s Chinese Tariffs Target Consumer Electronics, Including Sony and PlayStation

An expected high-profile bilateral meeting between Trump and Russia's Vladimir Putin planned for Saturday was abruptly canceled by Trump in a tweet citing Russia's seizure of Ukrainian vessels over the weekend.

Meanwhile, French President Emmanuel Macron hinted he would raise the issue of murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi when he meets Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, whom the Central Intelligence Agency reportedly concluded had ordered the killing.

Khashoggi, a Saudi journalist and columnist for The Washington Post, went missing after entering the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul on October 2.

Macron and British Prime Minister Theresa May both said they were raising the killing of Khashoggi during meetings with the 33-year-old prince.

Despite the symbolism of Friday's signing, Trump has no meetings with Trudeau scheduled while the two are in Argentina.

European Union president Donald Tusk was more focused on the Ukraine crisis, saying at the G20 that he was "sure" the bloc would roll over its sanctions on Russian Federation next month.

"I don't want to go overboard, but he's indicated some optimism".

United States objections on those fronts have seen two major summits this year, of the Group of Seven democracies and the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation forum, end without the once-routine statements.

"However, it should be feasible for some kind of agreement to be reached to prevent the dispute worsening if both sides are reasonable", it said.

"Europe is united in its support for Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity", Tusk said, calling the standoff "a cause of great concern".

Trump called the pact known the USMCA a "model agreement that changes the trade landscape forever".

A Chinese official told reporters last week that the two leaders would look to set guidelines for future talks.

Argentine President Mauricio Macri said the allegations against the prince may be discussed during the G20 summit.

The president's schedule of meetings has been altered in recent days.

"It will be the first time the two leaders from China and the USA have met face-to-face since bilateral trade tension escalated", said Sang Baichuan, a professor at the University of International Business and Economics in Beijing. "Take off after work on Thursday because the city is going to get very challenging".

The summit was held in tight security conditions, following threats of violent disruption from some groups in Buenos Aires.

Before heading for Buenos Aires on Thursday, Trump said he was open to a trade deal with China, but added, "I don't know that I want to do it".

As such, failure to reach an agreement at this week's G20 summit could lead to disastrous consequences to the USA, the Chinese and the global economy.

The government has declared Friday a national holiday and urged the capital's residents to leave to avoid travel chaos caused by the security lockdown.

Asked about the briefing listed on the media agenda, Wang Xiaolong, the ministry official slated to conduct it, replied: "Nobody told me about this".
