PARIS (Reuters) - French Finance Minister Michel Sapin said he regretted that a meeting of world financial leaders on Saturday had failed to reach satisfactory conclusions on climate change and trade.
"I regret nevertheless that our discussions today were not able to reach a satisfactory conclusion on two priorities that are absolutely essential in today's world," he said in a statement.
He cited the fight against climate change and trade, saying France was convinced of the need for "regulated free trade" that was profitable for everybody.
