After the G20 summit, Brown said China's proposal for a new currency has not received consensus from participating leaders. They will discuss the proposal this September.

The Russian President Dimitry Medvedev has agreed to the concept. He has also said that the Euro is a very successful example of a regional currency. He added that the IMF's special drawing rights, or SDRs, is a feasible choice.
