China says Modi, Xi to meet at BRICS leaders meet at G20

China says Modi, Xi to meet at BRICS leaders meet at G20

In addition to bilateral meetings with the Chinese and Japanese leaders in Hamburg, Trump is also due to hold talks with South Korean President Moon Jae-in and Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Trump will hold separate meetings with various leaders in Hamburg, including host German Chancellor Angela Merkel, and a potentially hard first meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Hamburg is a citadel of leftwing radicals, and the authorities say they are bracing for possible clashes and property damage.

Police in German Chancellor Angela Merkel's birthplace were given a taste of 30 officially registered protest rallies on the weekend when 10,000 people marched against globalisation.

President Donald Trump was met with thousands of protesters when he arrived at meetings in Brussels in May.

"We need the climate protection agreement, open markets and improved trade agreements in which consumer protection, social and environmental standards are upheld", she said in her weekly podcast.

Merkel re-used a line she said following the G7 summit in May, during which Trump withdrew from the Paris climate change accord despite outspoken reservations from the six other nations.

"We have every German special unit available to the summit", Hamburg's police president Ralf Meyer said Tuesday.

"While we seek chances to cooperate for everyone's benefit, globalization is seen in the American administration as a process which isn't about win-win situations, but about winners and losers", she said.

Far-left and anti-capitalist protesters from across the European Union have congregated in Hamburg in order to protest the G20 meeting during the week.

On Friday evening, the spouses will be treated to Beethoven's "Ode to Joy", the EU's anthem, at Hamburg's new Elbphilharmonie, whose glass structure is meant to evoke frozen waves, and which offers sweeping views of Germany's second largest city.

Germany has deployed some 20,000 police officers to protect the event and the government has said that violent protests will not be welcome in the city.

The United States has departed from the group's previous consensus on climate change and trade since Trump took office. Critics of Mr Trump's decision on the climate agreement have said that the USA is forsaking its role as a global leader on one of the most important issues affecting the planet.
