- Story Text: World leaders sat together on Saturday (July 8) for a working session on the second day of the Group of 20 summit in Hamburg.
European Union officials said that leaders had agreed every aspect of a joint statement apart from the section on climate where the United States is pushing for a reference to fossil fuels.
The officials said aides had worked until 2 a.m. to finalise a communique for the Group of 20, overcoming differences on trade after U.S. officials agreed to language on fighting protectionism.
With the final statement almost nailed down, the summit marked a diplomatic success for Chancellor Angela Merkel as she finessed differences with U.S. President Donald Trump, who arrived at the two-day summit isolated on a host of issues. For Merkel, the summit is an opportunity to show off her diplomatic skills ahead of a federal election in September, when she is seeking a fourth term in office.
