Asked about French and German opposition to U.S. calls for more fiscal stimulus to battle a global downturn, Darling told Reuters: "Obviously if you have 20 people sitting round a table, there will be differences."
"I think there is a lot of common ground. If you take fiscal stimulus, for example, the U.S. has, we have, the French have, the Germans have," he said.
He added that what was important for the meeting -- being hosted by Britain through Saturday -- was that all countries knew they had to take action.
