"The president said that he looks forward to helping Chancellor Merkel make the summit a success", it said.

China is holding the rotating chairmanship of the BRICS and will host the September summit in the port city of Xiamen.

US President Donald Trump and German Chancellor Angela Merkel plan to meet Thursday for what are expected to be tricky talks on the eve of a Group of 20 summit in Hamburg.

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

Kanye West quits Jay-Z's Tidal after spat over money
According to TMZ , Tidal claims that it hadn't received the music videos from Kanye , which is why it didn't pay him. Tidal gave those consumers free streaming access until a download became available some months afterward.

Chinese state media said Xi told also Trump "negative factors" have affected U.S.

Since 1979, the United States has recognized China's official position that Taiwan is part of China. Last week, US announced actions against a Chinese Bank, which is alleged to be involved in dealings with North Korea and announced arms sales worth $1.4 billion, a move that has been criticized by China.

According to the White House, the president spoke separately with multiple Gulf State leaders where they discussed the president's "concerns about the ongoing dispute between Qatar and some of its Gulf and Arab neighbors".

The four countries have accused Qatar of promoting terrorism in the region and have demanded Qatar shut down the Al Jazeera television network, evict Turkish troops from Qatar, and curb its ties with Iran. Interesting things are happening!'

At a series of meetings since January, both have taken stands against the U.S. administration protectionist agenda and recommitted to the Paris climate accord shortly before Trump said he was pulling out.

Much of the media focus will be on the first face-to-face meeting between Mr Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin, as relations between the two nations sour over alleged Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. election and differing views on Syria and Ukraine.
