On Tuesday, Argentine President Alberto Fernandez rejoined the G20 meetings after withdrawing from the sessions due to a medical ailment.
He suffered an episode of hypotension and dizziness on the first day of the G20 summit, so he was unable to carry out his speech as planned and had to be replaced by his Foreign Affairs Minister Santiago Cafiero.
Fernandez underwent a medical evaluation and was diagnosed with "erosive gastritis with signs of bleeding", for which he received "appropriate medical treatment, being in good health and resuming his activities under medical supervision," the Presidency Office said.
On Monday night, the Argentine president attended a dinner with Mexican Foreign Affairs Minister Marcelo Ebrard and Presidents Emmanuel Macron (France), Cyril Ramaphosa (South Africa), Paul Kagame (Rwanda), and Macky Sall (Senegal).
