White House: President Trump to meet Russian President Vladimir Putin at G20

German Chancellor Angela Merkel's scientist-husband will take leaders' spouses at a G20 summit, including Melania Trump, to a climate research centre amid a bitter row over global warming.

As for the US deployment of the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) system in South Korea, Xi and Putin said the move concerns the strategic balance in the region.

"We know the positions of the USA government and I do not expect them to disappear on a two-day trip to Hamburg", the chancellor said.

Venus Williams Sued After Killing A Man In Car Accident
While Williams was not given a citation by police for the crash, she was found at fault for failing to yield the right of way. The reporters gave Williams about a minute to collect herself, before she made a decision to end the press conference early.

For Merkel, the G20 host, Xi is an ally and Trump a troublesome rival on some of the most important issues on the agenda in Hamburg - from trade and climate change to economic development in Africa.

Chinese President Xi Jinping arrived here on Tuesday for his second state visit to Germany, aiming to cement ties with this major country of Europe. Last week, the USA approved $1.42 billion in arms sales to Taiwan.

The White House said Trump also talked with Saudi Arabia's King Salman, Crown Prince Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan of Abu Dhabi, as well as Qatari Emir Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani.

Kyle Lowry staying in Toronto for $100 million
If this is also a sign that Lowry is staying ( there are rumors of his own three-year deal ), Toronto can definitely be happy. Locking Lowry into a four or five-year contract would have crunched the Raptors into cap hell over the next half-decade.

Germany has raised the issue before, citing overcapacity in China as a particular concern, and said it wanted the Group of 20 industrialized and developing nations to work together on it.

Russian Federation and the United States are still discussing the timing of the encounter between Trump and Putin, a Kremlin aide said on Monday.

"Indeed a meeting with the USA president is planned before the G20 summit, most probably in the early evening of Thursday", AFP cited Seibert as saying.

Xi warns Hong Kong of crossing 'red line' by challenging Beijing
The protesters, including "Umbrella Movement" leaders Joshua Wong and Nathan Law, were not released until early Friday morning. Security has been tight ahead of the July 1 anniversary, with some 9,000 police reportedly deployed to maintain order.

ABOUT 4,000 people marched through Hamburg yesterday protesting at climate and trade policies due to be discussed at the G20 summit in the city.
