CGTN: Contradictions define the G20 summit

In my latest editorial for CGTN, I look at the mixed messages from the recently completed G20 summit.

The pandemic was not the only issue on the minds of world leaders. They solidified a deal on a global minimum tax rate for multinational corporations. Set at 15 percent, the tax would be used to help sustain social services in countries all over the world. There is a healthy irony here: Certain nations continue to see little reason to trim their defense spending, and their leaders know such a move would go a mighty long way in validating that such countries actually care about the less fortunate at home and across the globe.
