October 15, 2020 (MLN): The world’s richest nations agreed to renew a debt-relief initiative for the poorest through at least the first half of 2021, falling short of a World Bank call for a full-year extension as the coronavirus pandemic entrenches poverty.
The G-20, in a communique issued by President Saudi Arabia, said it could order another six-month extension next year. It also pledged to hold an extraordinary meeting before leaders gather in November to further discuss debt relief.
