At Macron's invitation, Trump will visit Paris a week after the July 7-8 G20 summit for Bastille Day celebrations.

Speaking at a meeting of European leaders in Berlin ahead of the next week's G20 summit in Hamburg, Merkel acknowledged discussions over climate change could be hard, but suggested she would not be afraid to challenge President Trump on the issue.

She vowed to stand her ground with Trump, saying that "the differences are obvious and it would be dishonest to try to cover that up". The European Commission will also consider "screening" sales to China of companies with "strategic" expertise, in fields like artificial intelligence.

"Merkel said, adding that she was" convinced that isolation policy" was not a solution.

Mr Trump pulled the USA out of the deal on 1 June, saying the Paris agreement was a deal that aimed to hobble, disadvantage and impoverish the US.

Merkel, who will host the gathering of global leaders in the northern port city, said the climate change scepticism of the US administration of President Donald Trump made it all the more important for the European Union to show leadership.

He said he had "at least the hope, in any case, that one or another will be brought to reason and can follow us".

"Only by working together can we overcome these problems".

"That was the USA secretary of commerce, who had promised us a 10-minute statement", Werner M. Bahlsen, head of the CDU Economic Council, told the audience Tuesday evening.

"There is no return to the Paris Climate Agreement, and this document cannot be negotiated", Angela Merkel said in the Bundestag when she spoke to MPs about the forthcoming G20 summit, which will be held in Hamburg late next week.

"We deplore, at least I say this for Germany, that the United States of America has made a decision to leave this agreement. That I won't do", Merkel said.

It will be Xi's sixth tour to Russian Federation since taking office, and will mark the third time the two heads of state have met this year, Li said. "But it is always preferable to make a joint declaration and leave open the opportunity to countries around the table to sign up in the medium term". "We can get things accomplished more quickly and efficiently than would ever be possible for individual nations".

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

"We know that there will be protests, and that is more than legitimate in a democracy". Ross used his speech to criticize Germany for its trade surplus with the United States.
