This year's G20 Riyadh summit in pictures

Published: Updated:

Saudi Arabia held the G20 presidency for 2020, which culminated in hosting the virtual Leaders’ Summit from Riyadh this weekend.

The summit was held virtually due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, as leaders sought to abide by travel restrictions and practice social distancing.

This meant that the 2020 summit lacked the annual group “family photo” opportunity, the rare annual occasion in which most of the world’s most powerful political leaders are in one room.

Nevertheless, the group did stage a virtual group photo.

Here are some of the key photographs from the summit.
