RIYADH, Nov 21 (INP): Custodian of the two Holy Mosques, King Salman has said that Saudi Arabia is pleased with the meeting of leaders of the G20 countries in which our country chaired this year’s work.

In a tweet on his official Twitter account on Saturday, King Salman stressed that the G20 has demonstrated its strength and ability to join efforts to mitigate the effects of the coronavirus pandemic on the world.

“Our responsibility was — and will remain — to move toward a better, healthy, and prosperous future for all”, King Salman added.

Saudi Arabia’s King Salman is expected to deliver his summit opening remarks virtually early Saturday evening.

The summit is usually held in person, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic this year it will instead take the form of online sessions on pressing global issues, ranging from climate change to growing inequality.

Discussions are expected to be dominated by the pandemic’s implications and steps for reviving the global economy.

Saudi Arabia is the first Arab nation to host a G20 summit.
