Merkel terms trade talks at G20 ‘very difficult’

World leaders still have a way to go to find a compromise on trade, one of the most controversial issues at this year’s G20 meeting, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said.

“I don’t want to beat around the bush, discussions [on trade] are very difficult,” Merkel told journalists on Friday evening, following a session on global growth and trade.
