We highly appreciated the level of competence of the event organized by Chancellor (of the Federal Republic of Germany Angela - TASS) Merkel, and are also satisfied with the results captured in the communique in Hamburg," she said, adding that Merkel had managed to build a friendly atmosphere at the summit.
"We surely consider the agreements on the main G20 issues to be the key results, meaning supportive measures to spur sustainable, balanced and inclusive growth in the global economy. I would like to stress the agreements in the area of trade facilitation and globalization," Lukash said, adding that this comes amid doubts arising in many countries regarding the need to support global trends.
