It was a busy day yesterday for British Prime Minister Theresa May, seen here being welcomed by German Chancellor Angela Merkel, in Berlin. She jetted into Germany for a meeting with other world leaders ahead of the Group of 20 (G-20) summit, then headed straight back to Parliament later in the day for a major vote on the Queen's Speech. Mrs May met Dr Merkel, French President Emmanuel Macron and other European leaders to formulate a strategy for the G-20 summit taking place in Hamburg next week. Dr Merkel appears to be on a collision course with US President Donald Trump after vowing to make a stand next week for climate protection and open markets at what is expected to be the most fractious G-20 summit in years.
