  • EU Continues Adherence to Paris Climate Deal - German Chancellor

She added that she would try to send a signal to Trump against isolationism, saying, "Whoever believes that the world's problems can be solved by isolationism and protectionism is making an enormous error".

"Seen from Beijing, Europe is an Asian peninsula", Merkel said.

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

"As your biggest customer, we hope to obtain a larger share of your market", he said.

The German chancellor vowed not to shy away from hard discussions with a sharp attack on the United States for rejecting the scientific argument for action against climate change. "That means we need to find a way of turning China's demands to the benefit of all".

Donald Trump's commerce secretary appeared by teleconference at a meeting in Germany and had his video-feed cut - a move reportedly greeted by laughter and applause from other world leaders. On Thursday, in remarks to Germany's lower house of parliament, Merkel continued to take veiled shots at the Trump administration, bashing the president's policies.

The next day, when the crew was told that Ron Howard would take over as director, sources say they broke into applause. Lord and Miller were apparently amenable to the idea of an acting coach, and offered a suggestion for Ehrenreich.

But Merkel's comments Thursday suggest there could be more frost than expected ahead of the G20 next week, when Xi joins the chancellor to unveil two pandas loaned by Beijing to Berlin zoo in a sign of friendly ties.

Speaking at a joint news conference after a meeting, German Chancellor Angela Merkel stressed European participants in the G20 were committed to the Paris climate accord.

"The differences are obvious [between the European Union on the U.S. on climate change] and it would be dishonest to try to cover that up", the BBC reported Merkel as stating yesterday. "That I won't do".

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.

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

On June 1, Trump announced that his country would be pulling out of the Paris climate accord, arguing that the agreement had the potential to hurt the U.S. economy and affect national job growth while unfairly benefiting other nations.
