German chancellor Angela Merkel has predicted hard talks at the G7 summit, and warned that she will not accept conclusions on issues like trade that water down the group's previous statements.

Merkel responded that the Group of Seven leading powers, as it now is, is defined by having members who respect worldwide law, and Russia's annexation of Crimea was a "flagrant breach" of that.

German chancellors have not beforehand interacted straight with lawmakers in the identical approach British prime ministers do at their weekly query time.

Merkel said in Berlin on Thursday "we should talk with each other before we keep on talking about each other".

She said Russia's readmission to such a format is not now feasible.

Wednesday marked the first time Merkel took questions in the Bundestag since she became chancellor 13 years ago.




Merkel acknowledged that growing tensions between the USA and its allies over Washington's withdrawal from worldwide agreements on climate change and Iran's denuclearization and its newly imposed trade tariffs would make the upcoming G7 summit in Canada a tense meeting.

She said that would "greatly strengthen the consistency and coherence of our foreign policy".

In a weekend newspaper interview, Merkel offered her most detailed response to French President Emmanuel Macron's ideas for reforming Europe, seeking to avert a damaging rift with Paris at a time of anxiety over Italy and growing transatlantic tensions.

"Of course I will try to speak with the American president on the current problems we have, especially with regard to Iran and with regard to trade tariffs", she said. Merkel, fielding another question from the far-right, anti-immigrant AfD, was accused of "importing Islamists", many of whom are "rapists and murderers" who have caused "endless human suffering".

"It's over", a smiling Merkel said as speaker Wolfgang Schaeuble ended the session.
