  • Saudi prince in Argentina as G20 summit tensions brew

But fallout from the Russian Federation collusion probe followed Trump to Buenos Aires, where the USA president cancelled a long-awaited meeting with President Vladimir Putin and tweeted furiously about latest legal developments back home.

Ahead of his visit to Argentina, the president said he would discuss with Trump the Manbij issue, a matter which continues to be an obstacle in the reconciliation of strained relations between the two North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies despite a deal made for cooperation.

Leaders from the Group of 20 major economies are scheduled to wrap up their two-day summit on Saturday in Buenos Aires, with trade and investment tensions between the United States and China showing little sign of petering out anytime soon.

Saudi Arabia's de facto ruler, who arrived amid controversy over the murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, has been ignored by other leaders at public events, although he has had a series of bilateral meetings with them in private.

Russian Federation and Ukraine have traded blame over the weekend ship incident - which Trump cited in cancelling a much-awaited meeting with Putin at the G-20. However, all eyes are on the Trump-Xi dinner meeting on Saturday, wherein the current trade tension is expected to dominate the proceedings.

The minister's statements were apparently a response to Trump's remarks during a press conference at Macri's Casa Rosada residence earlier on Friday.

What was more likely is that they reach a truce, buying time for more substantive talks, analysts said.

Argentina's security minister said eight gasoline bombs were discovered in an area of the capital several miles from the summit venue where a protest in the afternoon drew thousands of demonstrators who held up banners with slogans like "Go away G-20" and "Go away Trump". "But I will tell you that I think China wants to make a deal".

"The president is the one that took that leap and that's what has us very alarmed on that side of the industry", he said during on Thursday.

Meanwhile, oil markets anticipated a bilateral meeting between Putin and Prince Mohammed on Saturday for a sign that Russian Federation will participate in a production cut by the OPEC oil cartel next month.

Tottenham vs Internazionale, Champions League
Tottenham must still beat Barcelona on December 11 at the Camp Nou to make sure of advancing to the knockout phase. Should Spurs beat Inter, however, a point would confirm the La Liga champions as Group B winners.

Vehicle tariffs on both sides have increased in the US-China trade war.

"This is a model agreement that changes the trade landscape forever", Trump said at the signing ceremony in Buenos Aires.

The meeting will also be a test of the personal chemistry between the two leaders, which Trump has hailed as a warm friendship.

He also warned that France would refuse to move forward on a trade accord with South America's Mercosur bloc if Brazil's incoming far-right president, Jair Bolsonaro, pulls out of the Paris climate accord.

Saudi Arabia has denied that bin Salman played a role, but some leaders may be cool toward him to avoid seeming to legitimize a man who US intelligence agencies concluded ordered the killing.

Trump and Xi will be seeking a way out of a trade war between the world's two biggest economies, while also saving face for their domestic audiences at home.

On Friday, Xi and leaders from the BRICS group of leading emerging economies - Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa - called in a statement for open worldwide trade and a strengthening of the WTO.

Other First Ladies present included French First Lady Brigitte Macron, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's wife Sophie, Chinese President Xi Jinping's wife, Peng Liyuan and European Council President Donald Tusk's wife, Malgorzata.

The three countries agreed a deal in principle to govern their trillion dollars of mutual trade after a year and a half of contentious talks concluded with a late-night bargain just an hour before a deadline on September 30. Current US president Donald Trump said Bush had "inspired generations of his fellow Americans to public service".
