G20 communique agreed apart from wrinkle on climate - EU officials


The G20 group of leading industrialised and emerging countries have agreed on a joint communique at the summit in Hamburg, though leaders had still to iron out one last “wrinkle” in the climate section, news agency Reuters reported, citing an EU official. News website Spiegel Online wrote, the communique would contain three paragraphs on climate and energy: all G20 would underscore the need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, take then note of the United States wanted to leave the Paris Agreement on climate, before stating that the other 19 were committed to implement the deal.
