Russia hosts world leaders for G20

The presidents of the European Commission and European Council both arrived in St. Petersburg on Thursday (September 5), just hours before the Group of Twenty summit was due to officially kick off. Commission head Jose Manuel Barroso and Council president Herman van Rompuy arrived together on a small jet. World Bank head Jim Yong Kim also arrived for the two-day summit, which will be held at a tsarist palace outside St. Petersburg and which looks set to be dominated by the crisis in Syria. A potential showdown over the issue between U.S. President Barack Obama and Russia's Vladimir Putin could overshadow the meeting of world leaders which is normally aimed at how to revive the global economy.
