China, US showdown looms on trade at fractious G20 summit

The G20 summit is the biggest worldwide gathering in Argentina's history, and the protest underlined security concerns after recent football violence forced the relocation of a showpiece final to Spain.

"I think they want to, and I think we'd like to".

"China will continue to deepen market-oriented reform, protect property rights and intellectual property rights, encourage fair competition and do more to expand imports", he said.

In an early morning tweet from Argentina, where he's taking part in the Group of 20 summit, Trump assailed the scrutiny of his business, calling it a "Witch Hunt".

Although the new pact inherits key features from the old one, Trump has declared it a victory for the United States workers he claims were cheated by Nafta and yesterday called it the most "modern and balanced agreement in history".

But ahead of the summit's official start Mr Trump signed a trade deal with the Mexican and Canadian leaders.

Trump spent more than a year pushing the leaders of Canada and Mexico into agreeing to a rewrite of North American trade rules.

"One can not help but see a dishonest competition increasingly taking the place of honest dialogue based on equality among states", Putin told leaders of emerging economies as the summit opened in Buenos Aires. "The US should give its habitual winner-take-all approach to worldwide relations the weekend off", it said. The White House, however, said both leaders had a number of casual conversations, playing down Kremlin's statement.

Trump has chose to pull the United States from the Paris accord on curbing carbon emissions, saying it is unfair, despite mounting evidence of the changing climate's dire effects.

Prior to that Erdoğan had closed-door meetings with Russian President Vladimir Putin and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.

Trump's administration has accused Russian Federation of non-compliance with the 31-year-old Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) treaty and has said it will pull out of the deal as a result.

"Based on the fact that the ships and sailors have not been returned to Ukraine from Russian Federation, I have decided it would be best for all parties concerned to cancel my previously scheduled meeting in Argentina with President Vladimir Putin", Trump wrote on Twitter on November 29.
