Meeting of G20 Foreign Ministers Begins in Buenos Aires

BUENOS AIRES – The meeting of foreign ministers and guests of the G20 began Monday in Buenos Aires, where such topics as multilateralism, cybersecurity and the role of institutions in global governing will be discussed.

Around 9:30 am some 30 of these officials gathered at San Martin Palace, seat of the Argentine Foreign Ministry, to begin the plenary session.

The ministers were to discuss mechanisms for achieving “equitable and sustainable” global development, cybersecurity and the changes of paradigm in trade and migration.

In the early afternoon, when the meeting behind closed doors is expected to end, a press conference will be offered by representatives of the country that currently holds the presidency of the forum, Argentina, its predecessor Germany, and its successor in 2019, Japan.

This will be the first meeting of foreign ministers looking toward the G20 Heads of State Summit to be held between Nov. 30 and Dec. 1 this year in Argentina, which has the temporary presidency of the group made up of 19 industrialized and emerging nations and the European Union (EU).

Attending this Monday’s foreign ministers’ meeting are Jorge Faurie of Argentina, Japan’s Taro Kono, the Canadian Chrystia Freeland, Russia’s Sergey Lavrov and Bulgaria’s Ekaterina Zaharieva, whose country holds the rotating presidency of the EU.

Also present are Alfonso Dastis of Spain, a permanent guest nation, Germany’s Heiko Maas, the UK’s Secretary of state for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs Boris Johnson, and US Deputy Secretary of State John Sullivan, among others.

On Sunday the ministers were received by Argentine President Mauricio Macri, who asked those present to focus their debate on “the people and their needs,” in order to achieve “equity and sustainability.”
