World leaders gathered in Antalya for a summit of the G20 group of major economies have vowed a vigorous response to the terror attacks in Paris. Germany's Chancellor Angela Merkel is also attending that summit.
The chancellor has fought for international climate agreements but critics say she has let industry profits win out at home. What will another four years of Merkel mean for Germany's battle against carbon emissions?
Germany is reorienting itself away from the US and the UK and toward France. Chancellor Merkel made that abundantly clear in a major speech to parliament about the EU's future and next week's G20 summit in Hamburg.
Just weeks before the G20 summit, youth delegates from 31 countries have presented their proposals to the German chancellor. During talks, Angela Merkel criticized the lack of international readiness to accept refugees.
The G20 summit has concluded in the German city of Hamburg, with leaders of 19 nations recognizing the US' decision to withdraw from the Paris agreement. They, however, renewed their pledge to implement the climate deal.
