Angela Merkel : German Chancellor urges anti-G20 protesters to stay peaceful

"Now we look forward to the chancellor's speech", Bahlsen said, according to Bloomberg News.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel says next week's global summit in Hamburg will focus on pressing on with the Paris climate accord despite President Trump's move to pull the us out of the deal.

"We see this differently, but the fact is that large parts of the German economy are dependent on China".

Later on Thursday, she was due to meet Spain's Mariano Rajoy, France's Emmanuel Macron, Italy's Paolo Gentiloni, Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte and Norway's Erna Solberg, as well as European Union leaders Jean-Claude Juncker and Donald Tusk, also in preparation for the summit.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said that "it would probably not be okay" if Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump would not talk at the G20 Summit that is scheduled for next month in Hamburg.

"The relationship with the United States is a long-term one and it is deep", Macron said.

Merkel said that discussions about climate issues in Hamburg won't be easy and there is no point glossing over disagreements.




"The European Union unconditionally stands by its agreement in Paris and will implement it speedily and with determination", she said.

Merkel, who will host the gathering of global leaders in the northern port city, said the climate change scepticism of the USA administration of President Donald Trump made it all the more important for the European Union to show leadership. "That I won't do".

On June 18, Merkel said that the fight against climate change, supporting free trade, the development of the African nations and migration policy would become the agenda of primacy for the German presidency in the upcoming G20 summit.

This year, the Paris climate agreement, established to limit the impact of carbon emissions on the environment, with countries committed to keeping the rise in global temperatures "well below" 2C, will be among them.

German Chancellor #Angela Merkel openly criticized US President Donald Trump in Berlin for leaving the #Paris Climate Agreement.

"More than that: Since the decision of the United States to leave the Paris climate agreement, we are more determined than ever to make it a success". "We can not wait to act until the science has convinced every last doubter".

"In a word: the Paris agreement is irreversible and not negotiable". He has proposed renegotiating the Paris accord.
