G-20 Leaders Concerned over U.S.-China Trade Tensions

G-20 Leaders Concerned over U.S.-China Trade Tensions

   Buenos Aires, Nov. 30 (Jiji Press)--A closely watched Group of 20 summit started in Buenos Aires on Friday for a two-day run, with participants voicing concerns over fierce U.S.-China trade friction.
