Saudi Arabia’s King Salman bin Abdulaziz says this has been an extraordinary year and the coronavirus pandemic has been an unprecedented shock for the world, during his G20 Riyadh Summit opening remarks which he delivered virtually on 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.
