German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Wednesday predicted difficult talks at the Group of Seven summit, warning that she won't accept conclusions on issues like trade that water down the group's previous statements."It is apparent that we have a serious problem with multilateral agreements here, and so there will be contentious discussions," Merkel said as she addressed her first question time in the German parliament, a format introduced by the governing coalition that took office in March.She said Germany will work at least to preserve what was agreed at last year's G-7 and Group of 20 summits on trade and climate.Merkel will now face questions three times a year, though some opposition lawmakers complain that the format is too inflexible.
