Jinping welcomes German Chancellor Angela Merkel as leaders arrive for a group

Last week Merkel met with key European leaders and vowed to make a stand for climate protection and open markets at the meeting with Trump, who has said he will take the United States out of the Paris climate deal and pursue a protectionist "America First" policy.

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.

The pursuit of one-sided economic interests risks creating "irreconcilable conflicts" between states, she said.

'Will be speaking with Germany and France this morning, ' Trump tweeted on Monday, in the first signal of his change in direction.

During his stay in Germany, Xi will also travel to Hamburg to attend the G20 summit.

It is important to boost head-of-state diplomacy, which leads and promotes the development of bilateral relations, said Putin, adding that Xi's ongoing state visit, the second of its kind since he took office in 2013, will further boost the two countries' partnership.
