Large international platforms like G20 summit, are less capable, now one of the most important issues discussed at the bilateral level, says a senior researcher of the Center for analysis of international processes, MGIMO University, RIAC expert Maxim Suchkov, commenting on the results of the summit.

The summit of «Big twenty» was held in Buenos Aires from 30 November to 1 December. The results of the forum adopted a final Declaration in which the countries reaffirmed the need to reform the world trade organization (WTO), the obligation to use all political means to achieve economic growth, to work together to eliminate the causes of refugees and displaced persons providing humanitarian assistance. The country has also expressed its commitment to the Paris climate agreement. Despite the fact that the Declaration is a «rounded» character, it is important that it is, said Russian President Vladimir Putin.

«I am skeptical about statements like this. Leaders need to present a communiqué to show that they are knowingly going and doing something. But the basic stories that define the character and dynamics of international relations was on the bilateral meetings», — the expert said in an interview with RIA Novosti, commenting on the content of the final communiqué. According to experts, in General, the format of the G20 summit shows its inefficiency.

«The imbalance of international system shows that, unfortunately, the large international sites are less viable now. Goes back to the fact that the most important issues discussed at the bilateral level,» said Suchkov.

It is unlikely that the international community is now high expectations for such events, he said. As for the leaders of the countries themselves, they in their assessments will be based on the benefits derived for the country during meetings and negotiations, added Knots.

«They (the leaders – ed.) come not to the conclusion of some global communiqué and hold important bilateral meetings, to communicate with the largest possible number of their colleagues on various issues. In this respect he was exactly worthless for many participants. To say that the overall summit was a success – hardly», – concluded the expert.
