Talks on global trade at the Group of 20 summit proved very difficult and differences on climate change also were clear, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said Friday, as police and protesters clashed throughout the day in the summit's host city of Hamburg.The German leader said most summit participants backed the Paris climate accord.Merkel has rejected calls from some to push for a strong "G-19" statement – without the U.S. – on climate change.Merkel noted that the countries at the summit represent two-thirds of the world's population, four-fifths of the globe's gross domestic product and three-quarters of world trade.The G-20 summit was also a forum for a flurry of bilateral meetings, including Trump's first encounter with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
