in This way, Switzerland could not expect. The king of Saudi Arabia has invited to the next summit of the G20 countries in Riyadh. The most important economic sit together powers to global reforms of the quiet Elevator.
For Switzerland, the invitation is Gold. Had sought to Bern only to participate in the Meeting of Finance Ministers and Central bankers. Even the but was in limbo because of the Federal war material had blocked deliveries to Saudi Arabia.
