Brazil's G20 sherpa, Mauricio Lyrio, announced that diplomats have agreed to steer clear of contentious geopolitical issues during their ministerial meetings leading up to the November summit of the world's largest economies. The decision was made to focus on advancing agreements on topics such as climate change, hunger reduction, trade, and investment.
