World leaders — including a smiling Sebastian Pinera, president of Chile, surrounded by Chinese delegates — gathered for their annual summit in Bali, Indonesia, on Sunday.

In addition to talks about fighting protectionism and pushing through difficult reforms critical to the global recovery, there was plenty of time for picture-taking.

President Obama canceled his trip to the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation forum because of the budget impasse in Washington.

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov will meet on Monday during the summit, their first high-level talks since sealing a deal to secure and destroy Syria’s chemical weapons and the onset of an apparent warming between Iran and the West.

They are expected to comparenotes on progress made since they negotiated the Syria agreement last month.
