BUENOS AIRES (Reuters) - Discussions on international trade between the financial leaders of the world’s 20 biggest economies gathered in Buenos Aires this week had a “constructive spirit,” Argentine central bank Governor Federico Sturzenegger said on Tuesday.

At a press conference closing the two-day G20 meeting, Argentine Treasury Minister Nicolas Dujovne said delegates spoke in general terms on trade, and did not give the sense the world was heading toward a trade war. Planned U.S. tariffs on steel and aluminum imports were not directly addressed, he said.
