Trump says he's close to China trade deal

He did not rule out a meeting with Trump.

Modi will also use the meet to raise concerns of India and other nations on the volatility of global oil prices and the way bodies such as the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries have increasingly cartelised oil supplies, a senior government official said.

Hopes of progress over tariffs in Mr Trump's expected talks with Chinese leader Xi Jinping have been dampened.

"We're in very good shape", Kudlow said. He added that Putin is ready for holding talks with his United States counterpart.

Vladimir Putin may also get a similar grilling over the Sea of Azov conflict where on Sunday Russia fired three Ukrainian navy ships and seized the vessels along with 24 Ukrainian seamen. The president's remarks added to anxiety about Apple's growth prospects and demand for its smartphones, but what he said should not be shocking. This will be the final meeting of BRICS Leaders chaired by South Africa before Brazil assumes the Presidency on 1 January 2019. The two presidents plan to discuss the situations in Syria, Libya and Ukraine as well as USA plans to leave the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty, according to Kremlin aide Yury Ushakov.

The G20 summit is already confronted with dire warnings, by the International Monetary Fund among others, of the potential harm faced by the world economy from Trump's tariffs on Chinese goods and his stated threats of action to come against European and Japanese cars.

The prime minister stressed on the need to strengthen worldwide cooperation and enhance coordinated action against fugitive economic offenders and financing of terrorism. According to Ushakov, Putin and Abe will discuss the establishment of а mechanism for negotiations on the Kuril Islands.

Turkey's Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who has been sharply critical of Saudi Arabia over the incident, is also in attendance. He reportedly will be in Buenos Aires from November 29 to December 1.

Mohammed bin Salman is scheduled to attend the summit and hold a number of talks with world leaders, including the Russian president. In a stinging public rebuke, Pence warned against "roads to nowhere" and "constricting belts" when talking about infrastructure development in the region.

President Donald Trump is sending signals that the US may impose more tariffs on China as he heads to the G-20 meeting in Argentina this week.

"I think we're very close to doing something with China, but I don't know that I want to do it, because what we have right now is billions and billions of dollars coming into the United States in the form of tariffs or taxes", Trump told reporters as he departed the White House to travel to the G-20. "I am open to making a deal but frankly I like the deal that we have right now", the president said.

The United States has levied additional duties of between 10 percent and 25 percent on $250 billion of Chinese goods this year as punishment for what it calls China's unfair trade practices, with the 10 percent tariffs set to climb to 25 percent next year.

The idea for the G20 started within the G7 meeting of finance ministers in 1999 who felt they needed a more broad group to address the world's financial challenges.

As the leaders arrived, Argentine security forces began locking down the central business district in Buenos Aires on Thursday.

President Mauricio Macri said the slogan of the summit is a "fair and sustainable future" with a focus on "putting people first" and "building consensus".

The Infobae news portal reported that the traffic on the main avenue of the Argentine capital was shut down for two hours on Wednesday amid mass protests. Representatives of other nations and global organizations, as well as accompanying officials, will not take part in the meeting.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel is one of the leaders due to sit down with Trump on Friday.
