BUENOS AIRES (Reuters) - The G20 agriculture ministers gathered in Buenos Aires this weekend had a “frank discussion” about the fact that they do not want unilateral protectionist measures, German Agriculture Minister Julia Klockner told reporters on Saturday.

In a joint statement, the ministers agreed not to adopt “unnecessary obstacles” to trade as global trade tensions escalate.
