Drafting a COVID-19 action plan is expected to be a top priority when leaders of the world’s richest nations meet for the G20 summit.
Saudi Arabia is hosting it this year.
But there have been calls to boycott the virtual event over the kingdom’s human rights abuses.
A counter-summit has already been held online to highlight human rights abuses, ranging from the murder of the journalist Jamal Khashoggi to its attacks on civilians during the war in Yemen, and the continued detention of political and human rights activists in Saudi jails.
