Thursday: Obama Has ‘Very Open’ Talks With Germany’s Chancellor Merkel

  Senator Barack Obama has held “very open” talks with German Chancellor Angela Merkel in Berlin; just hours before he is due to give a major speech on US-European relations.

Obama travelled in a motorcade from Berlin’s Tegel airport to a private meeting with Mrs. Merkel at the chancellery, opposite the glass-domed Reichstag parliament building.  Chancellor Merkel’s spokesman said the German leader had “very open” and wide-ranging talks with Senator Obama, touching on foreign policy issues including Iran, Afghanistan and the Middle East peace process.

  Their talks also covered the trans-Atlantic economic partnership, climate and energy issues, the state of the global economy and international cooperation to “solve important global questions,” Ulrich Wilhem, Chancellor Merkel’s spokesman, said in a statement.

Merkel and Obama stressed the “great significance of close and friendly German-American relations,” he said, adding that the talks were conducted in “a very good atmosphere”.

Obama paused as he entered the gates of the chancellery to wave at a group of Bavarian teenager school children, whose class happened to be ending its tour of the building.

“We were really close,” an excited Michaela Schmid said. “It was super, a real highlight.”
