PM faces fiery G20
MALCOLM Turnbull heads into a G20 summit which is deeply divided over how to tackle North Korea’s ambitions and threatening to fracture over global trade.
The Prime Minister arrived yesterday and headed straight to a bilateral meeting with host leader Angela Merkel before the summit starts today.
North Korea has been widely condemned for testing a Hwasong- 14 intercontinental ballistic missile which landed in Japanese waters.
US President Donald Trump, who has arrived in Poland before his first G20 summit, has called on China to “end this nonsense once and for all”.
His ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley, warned at a UN Security Council meeting that America would use force “if we must” against North Korea. Deputy Prime Minister Barnaby Joyce backed up the US, saying: “No one should ever go too far in testing the resolve of the United States of America.”
