G20 summit opens in Buenos Aires

G20 leaders in Buenos Aires
Argentine President Mauricio Macri on Friday opened the the all-leader G20 session, taking place in Buenos Aires.

"The essence of the G20 is to foster dialogue while respecting differences," Macri said in his opening remarks, expressing his hope that the two-day summit would "lay the foundations for consensus for the next 10 years."

"Many people look at us and have doubts regarding these summits and what they're good for. It is our duty to show to the world that today global challenges require global responses," CNN quoted Macri as saying.

He cited several of these challenges, which the G20 members will discuss during the 2-day summit, including climate change, sustainable development, food security, and international trade.
