German Chancellor Angela Merkel said at the start of a visit to Beijing on Friday that the China-U.S. trade war affects the whole world and that she hopes it will be resolved soon, ONA reports citing Reuters.
“We hope that there will be a solution in the trade dispute with the United States since it affects everybody” in the world, Merkel told Chinese Premier Li Keqiang at Beijing’s Great Hall of the People during a two-day trip to China.
Merkel said that Germany is open for Chinese investment and she welcomes all Chinese companies to invest in the country. However, she added that Germany checks investments in certain strategic sectors and critical infrastructure.
