MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia hopes that all 20 members of the group of industrialised nations will support a multilateral approach to international trade regulation when they meet in Argentina next week, Russian G20 negotiator Svetlana Lukash said on Thursday.

Lukash said G20 leaders, who will meet in Buenos Aires on Nov. 30, will discuss issues of global trade, climate change and international cooperation.

G20 leaders will also discuss macro policy coordination, issues of financial regulation and tax reform, said Lukash, adding that there were no political topics on the summit’s agenda.

When asked about a G20 draft communique, Lukash said sherpas will start working on the document on Monday.

“There will be a declaration, I guarantee,” she said.
