Merkel criticizes Trump trade policy before G20

Insisting that her pointed remarks are not to be interpreted in any way except literally, Merkel added: "yes, exactly that way", in an interview with the Associated Press.

Merkel and Trump have clashed on a number of issues, ranging from migration to climate change, trade and defense spending.

Merkel also held a pre-summit meeting last week with the event's European participants, who underscored their backing for the Paris accord to combat climate change.

"Chinese-German relations are now about to have a new start where we need new breakthroughs", Mr Xi told a joint news conference with Ms Merkel in Berlin.

"I don't think we'll have unified positions on all issues at the end, but it's sensible and honest to talk to each other on all issues of worldwide diplomacy", she said at a news conference in Berlin.

The G20 summit will also be attended by the U.S. President Donald Trump, Russian President Vladimir Putin and Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan.

The site is about a kilometre (less than a mile) from where the leaders will be meeting.
