Shadow Chancellor Alan Johnson responding to the G20 Summit communiqué said:

"Two years ago the world's leaders showed that they could act together in the face of an economic crisis. Those risks remain, but this week's G20 summit has made painfully clear that the momentum behind necessary cooperation has badly stalled.

“At stake is the recovery of the world economy, and jobs back here in the UK. Leaders have failed in their core task - to show that the political will is there to make a difference."
