Saturday, 30 October 2021 (YJC)_ The G20 summit in the Italian capital began with a focus on tackling the Corona and future pandemics and practical ways to reduce climate change.

The G20 summit begins in Rome, ItalyLeaders of the world's largest economies are meeting in Rome today for the G20 summit, according to France 24 television. The summit comes just 24 hours before the UN Climate Summit (COP26). The climate issue will also be one of the main topics of the G20 summit.

The G20 summit is being held in a tense atmosphere, as not all of the world's 20 richest countries are in harmony. Russian President Vladimir Putin and Chinese President Xi Jinping will not attend the meeting and will attend the conference via video conference.

"We see a dangerous level of suspicion between the great powers and the members of the G20," said UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres. The main purpose of this meeting should be to build trust by targeting the main sources of these suspicions, including injustice and geopolitical problems.

Trust among G20 members is essential to tackling two global emergencies: the Covid 19 epidemic and climate change.

These challenges have prevented the promised $ 200 billion annual financial assistance from rich countries to poor countries from tackling climate change by 2021.

Oscar Soria, head of campaign (E) to tackle climate change, says now is the time to pay. It is time for the powers that be to live up to their promises.

Another issue is the revival of the global economy. The meeting is expected to address the issue of a minimum tax of 15% for multinational companies.

On the sidelines of the meeting, US President Joe Biden will meet with the leaders of the three European countries present at the UN Security Council (Britain, Germany and France) to discuss Iran's nuclear program.
