Global leaders hunkered down for what threatened to be a fractious two-day summit in Buenos Aires with deep disagreements evident over world trade and climate change.

But it wasn´t all doom and gloom. Here are five moments from the first day of the summit Friday:

That handshake 

All eyes were on Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and how his fellow leaders would greet him in the wake of the murder and dismembering of journalist Jamal Khashoggi in his country´s Istanbul consulate. He mingled with the others easily enough and received a resounding handshake from Vladimir Putin — also under a cloud for over his country´s naval spat with Ukraine — as the two men laughed off their troubles.

More bizarre still was his conversation later with Emmanuel Macron, filmed by the prince´s aide and put out on Twitter. The French president appeared to be taking him to task about something.

"Don´t worry," Prince Mohammed is heard saying in English to the French leader, who responds, "I do worry. I am worried." But it received wide traction on social media, with Macron telling the prince, "You never listen to me," to which Prince Mohammed replies, "I will listen, of course."
