Angels Merkel expects difficult G7 summit, will seek out Donalad Trump for talks on Iran, trade tariffs
Ministers from Germany, France and Britain have already written to U.S. officials urging them to shield European companies working in Iran from getting caught up in Washington`s new sanctions on the Islamic Republic. Trump`s disdain for diplomatic niceties and his "America first" policies have created a rift with countries whose alliance with the United States dates back to the Cold War with the Soviet Union.
Germany`s Angela Merkel said she expects "difficult discussions" at a June 8-9 summit of leaders from the Group of Seven leading economies but will try to talk to President Trump about their differences on Iran and trade tariffs. Image source: Reuters
