Brown expected to announce global summit in SF

German chancellor Angela Merkel said the U.S. president's decision was regrettable, while French president Emmanuel Macron said he would host a summit in December to discuss the next steps on the agenda.

The two leaders will hold a formal bilateral meeting, at which the prime minister plans to tell the U.S. president she does not believe the Paris climate change agreement needs to be renegotiated.

Ms Merkel's husband, Joachim Sauer, is taking President Donald Trump's daughter and other spouses of G20 leaders on a tour of the German Climate Computing Centre in Hamburg on Friday.

The Trump administration, which is primarily preoccupied with challenges to economic growth and focusing on the re-industrialisation of the United States economy, has made it clear that the environmentalist agenda does not align with its economic plans. This, in turn, has made USA industrial production more costly and less competitive, while the accompanying corruption and abuses of authority have hastened the decline of USA manufacturing.

"In the end, the negotiations on climate reflect dissent - all against the United States of America", German Chancellor Angela Merkel said as the G20 meeting drew to its close.

The trio said: "We deem the momentum generated in Paris in December 2015 irreversible and we firmly believe that the Paris agreement can not be renegotiated, since it is a vital instrument for our planet, societies and economies".

Relations between the two countries have been under strain since Trump became president past year.

"The United States is now in the process of reviewing many of its policies related to climate change and continues to reserve its position on this document and its contents", the footnote reads. "This language would show that he's isolated on climate change but leave him with a bit of dignity". Trump has advocated more protectionist measures.

Asked about China, the Canadian leader said it had understood that trade with other countries was a way to alleviate poverty.

They acknowledged that the malicious use of information and communications technologies can endanger financial stability.

As the world's second-largest emitter, the US involvement in the Paris deal is seen as crucial to global efforts to tackle climate change. It also promotes energy security, a key issue for Trump.

"Among the US" prominent trade partners, Saudi Arabia and Indonesia were leaning towards softening the tone of the communique concerning climate change and trade, but ultimately agreed with the final version. On top of this, his administration's "America first" approach to trade has caused widespread concern.
