President Donald Trump has shaken the very foundations of US foreign policy with his rather controversial remarks. For leaders across the globe, it's a whole new world.
Chancellor Angela Merkel has received French President Emmanuel Macron in Berlin to discuss his grand EU vision. But Macron's vision of a banking union, in particular, doesn't sit well with German conservatives.
The German chancellor has partially blamed Russia for a suspected chemical weapons attack in Syria. But the Kremlin said that despite their differences, Moscow would "continue bilateral contacts" with Berlin.
Amid global tensions over tariffs, Angela Merkel has called for a "dialogue process" between the EU and the US on trade policy. Both leaders supported efforts to expel undeclared Russian intelligence officers.
More than a year after he withdrew the US from the Trans Pacific Partnership, it seems Donald Trump could be interested in rejoining. Japan tentatively welcomed the move, but stressed the trade deal was "delicate."
