Saudi Arabia becomes first Arab nation to head G20

RIYADH – Saudi Arabia has taken over the presidency of the G20 nations, becoming the first Arab nation to head the top global forum.

The G20 presidency, which Saudi Arabia takes over from Japan, will see it host world leaders for a global summit in its capital on 21st November, 2020.

"The kingdom of Saudi Arabia assumes the G20 Presidency today, leading up to the summit in Riyadh" in 2020, the official Saudi Press Agency (SPA) said Sunday.

"The Saudi G20 presidency is committed to continuing the work from Osaka and promoting multilateral consensus."

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman hailed it as a "unique opportunity" to shape international consensus.
