    This year’s G20 summit host German Chancellor Angela Merkel is greeting world leaders as they arrive in the country’s port city of Hamburg to discuss global challenges at joint meetings and seek specific agreements during bilaterals during the two-day high-profile event, a Sputnik correspondent reported.

    Merkel gave a friendly handshake to the arriving leaders, among them – Russian President Vladimir Putin, US leader Donald Trump, UK Prime Minister Theresa May, French President Emmanuel Macron and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan among others.

    The high-level forum brings together heads of governments from 20 major economies, including the United States, the European Union, China, and Russia, as well as several international organizations, such as the International Monetary Fund (IMF), the United Nations (UN), the World Trade Organization (WTO) and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).
