原文：G20 summit opens with Donald Trump adopting softer tone
Donald Trump said he had “a lot of time” to deal with Iran at the start of the G20 summit in Osaka on Friday, as the meeting of the world’s largest economies began under the shadow of Washington’s rising tensions with Tehran and the unresolved US-China trade war.
“We have a lot of time. There’s no rush, they can take their time,” the US president said, even as he warned that there would be consequences if there was no resolution to the escalating crisis in the Gulf. “There is absolutely no time pressure. Hopefully in the end it’s going to work out. If it does, great, if it doesn’t, you‘ll be hearing about it.”
Donald Tusk, the European Council president, noted the EU’s “serious concern” about the tensions and said he would be telling all sides to show “maximum restraint”. He “strongly urged” Iran to continue to uphold the nuclear agreement, warning the EU would “take seriously” any breach of its commitments.
Mr Trump is expected to discuss the Iran crisis in bilateral meetings with the leaders of Russia, Saudi Arabia, Germany, Russia and others attending the two-day summit.
While the G20 leaders will hold numerous bilateral meetings, the focus remains squarely on the face-to-face meeting between Mr Trump and Chinese president Xi Jinping on Saturday.
The two leaders will try to make progress towards an agreement aimed at ending the trade war between the economic powers after talks collapsed last month.
Speaking before a session on trade, Shinzo Abe, Japan’s prime minister, said discontent about the changes brought in by globalisation had sparked “sharp confrontation between states”.
But he said it was important that any trade measures adopted by countries should be consistent with World Trade Organization rules.
“I harbour great concern about the current situation on global trade,” Mr Abe said. “The world is watching the direction at which we the G20 leaders are [proceeding]. Now is the time we communicate a strong message for the maintenance and strengthening of a free, fair and non-discriminatory trading system.”
