Argentina, Germany want to keep pledge for free trade at G20 summit

BUENOS AIRES, March 18 (Reuters) - Germany and Argentina want to uphold a pledge to keep international trade free at a summit of the world’s largest economies in Buenos Aires this week, the countries’ finance ministers said on Sunday.

“We aim to reach an agreement in terms of maintaining the wording of the Hamburg communique (about) sustaining the benefits of free trade,” Argentina’s Treasury Minister Nicolas Dujovne, the host of the G20 summit, said.

His words were echoed by Germany’s finance minister Olaf Scholz, who was speaking alongside him at a press conference. (Reporting By Francesco Canepa; Editing by Andrea Ricci)
