Merkel Spokesman: Germany Still Seeking Stronger US Ties

Addressing a crowd at an election rally in Munich, Merkel said that in the last few days, she had "experienced" that Germany and other European countries no longer can "completely rely on others". But she was quick to add that of course, there should still be accord with friendly neighboring countries such as Great Britain, the United States and other nations, including Russian Federation, if needed. "We have to fight for our own destiny".

But while six of the seven G-7 nations agreed to stick with their commitment to implement the 2015 Paris Agreement that aims to slow global warming, Trump said he needed more time to decide if the USA would abandon the accord.

Speaking on the campaign trail after contentious summit meetings in Belgium and Italy, Ms. Merkel said: "The times in which we could rely fully on others, they are somewhat over". -German relations? And what would Europeans do differently if they did take their fate into their own hands? -European relations appears to be over.

During his stay, he will meet the top leadership of the country to discuss issues of mutual interests.

Do you ever have any question about anything you wish to ask and get answer?

The spread between German and US 10-year borrowing costs was at 191.5 bps, close to a two-week high of 192 basis points hit on Friday on increased concerns over the world's largest economy.

Lawyer and political analyst Maximilian Krah suggests that Merkel was probably "more honest than she wanted" and admitted that her policy failed. It has demonstrated that the group has also almost ceased to exist.

Separately, France's Defence Minister Sylvie Goulard said that Trump's broadside at North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies could boost efforts toward a common European defence policy.

The Guardian newspaper's Jon Henley, the paper's European affairs correspondent, argued in his assessment of Trump's visit: "It may, mercifully, have passed off without apocalyptic mishap, but Donald Trump's first transatlantic trip as USA president still left European leaders shaken". There are more than 1,600 German companies and 600 German joint ventures in India and the German economic profile supports excellence and expertise that match with India's development priorities of Make in India, Clean India, Skill India, Digital India, Smart Cities, the Ministry of External Affairs said. Since many refugees go north from the drought-stricken Sahel, which has been desertifying under the impact of human-caused climate change from toxic carbon dioxide emissions, these two crises are inter related.

Mr Trump offered a more positive assessment on Twitter on Sunday, writing: Just returned from Europe. Now she senses that the G20 summit is going to be much tougher.

It followed Chancellor Angela Merkel's warning on Sunday that the U.S. and Britain may no longer be completely reliable partners. In short, European leaders don't like Trump, but they know he is someone to contend with.

Modi, who arrived in Berlin on the first leg of his six-day, four-nation tour of Germany, Spain, Russia and France, in an interview to German newspaper "Handelsblatt" said: "Europe has been hit hard by terrorism". That is why Germany should now act differently.

APPLEBAUM: Possibly. I mean, I - you know, look, I have argued for a long time that Europe should begin to think a lot more creatively about defense - perhaps, creating a European army, you know, kind of European foreign legion along French lines, perhaps, beefing up its capacity to conduct foreign policy, which right now it really nearly doesn't have at all.
