The G20 summit is over. Its like has never been seen before.

Beginning the day after the Paris attacks, the sombre mood at the talks was etched on leaders’ faces.

The world’s 19 richest states plus the EU issued a statement condemning the recent attacks in Paris and Ankara and pledging closer cooperation.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan hosted the summit:

“We have had talks over our joint responsibilities against the terror and atrocity of Daesh which has definitely no link with Islam. Protection of Syria’s territorial integrity, eliminating terrorist elements in the country and restoring a plural, legitimate and democratic structure are the main targets of this process. Assad, who massacred his own people, has no place in the future of Syria.”
