Protesters make hell for Turnbull, Trump

German Chancellor Angela Merkel greets Italian Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni ahead of the upcoming G20 summit

In her weekly podcast, Merkel said this year's G20 summit will delve into issues championed by protesters such as distribution of wealth and consumption of resources - alongside related issues like climate change, free markets, consumer protection and upholding social standards.

Xi and Merkel will both attend the G20 summit, where they are expected to discuss a host of topics with other world leaders, including joint policies on climate change and world trade.

Then there is Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, whose crackdown on alleged coup plotters, civil society and Kurds after a 2016 putsch attempt has poisoned relations with Germany.

In remarks last week, Mrs Merkel raised the prospect of an open clash with Mr Trump at the Hamburg summit, although some Trump administration officials have played down the discord. "We Europeans must take our fate into our own hands more decisively than we have in the past". "Donald Trump's statement that the world is an arena and not a global community is completely contrary to their view: We do not want few to benefit from economic progress".

"It is a great pleasure for us to welcome you here today at a time of turmoil in the world, when China and Germany can make a contribution to calming down this turmoil somewhat", Merkel said.

In his talk with Gentiloni, the US leader again voiced his appreciation of the Italian official's efforts in hosting a successful Group of Seven meeting in May, the White House said.
