4-9-16


World leaders have gathered for this year’s two-day G20 summit of the world's major economies in Hangzhou, China. As the leaders address global economic challenges and the issues of global security, RT brings you the details of the issues covered.


Washington and Moscow have reached common ground on many technical issues related to the settlement of the conflict in Syria, the parties have yet to resolve but a few remaining “tough issues,” US Secretary of State John Kerry said on Sunday.


“We will meet tomorrow morning and see whether or not it is possible to bridge the gap and come to a conclusion on these couple of issues,” Kerry said after meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov on the sidelines of the summit.

President Barack Obama, meanwhile, said that despite working “around the clock,” US and Russian negotiators “are not there yet” in reaching a deal to reduce violence in Syria as they have “grave differences.”

Addressing the Syria crisis during a meeting with British Prime Minister Theresa May, the US leader also expressed skepticism over the prospect of enabling the cessation of hostilities in the Middle Eastern country, as previous ones have failed to hold, but said it's “worth trying.”
