The German Chancellor hosted her last press conference this afternoon as she revealed world leaders have now agreed their final communique at the G20 summit.

While highlighting all the issues that have been discussed including corruption, education in Africa and female empowerment, she also used the opportunity to make one last scathing comment about the US president.

The German chancellor said she “deplored” the decision by the US to withdraw from the Paris climate change agreement, which is backed by all other G20 leaders except the billionaire businessman.

The comment is the latest in a series of attacks on the US during this 12th summit, being held in Hamburg.

On one issue after the other, America has proven to be at odds with the rest of the world leaders – not just over climate change.

Speaking about the Paris agreement this afternoon, Mrs Merkel said: “What came out of this meeting was what I had already said at the beginning; wherever there is no consensus that can be achieved, this agreement has to be made clear.

“You are familiar with the American position. You know unfortunately – and I deplore this – the US left the climate change agreement.

“Or rather they announced their intention of doing this.

“What becomes clear in this declaration is the dissenting view of the United States – but I am gratified to note the other members say the Paris agreement is irreversible.

“We feel committed to what we agreed on and should be implemented as quickly a possible.”
