China blasts US over trade at G20 as Trump and Putin shake hands

CHINESE President Xi Jinping criticised the US for retreating from globalisation, dumping the Paris climate change accords and for its reaction to North Korea's ICBM launch.

Meanwhile, US president Donald Trump and Russian leader Vladimir Putin shook hands at the G20 Summit in Hamburg, ahead of their first bilateral meeting, Bloomberg reported.

Said President Xi: "Major developed countries have significantly backtracked positions on trade, climate change and other issues.

"These developments affect the BRICS nations - Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa - and reinforce the need to step up coordination "to speak in one voice to steer the world economy in right direction," he said.

Said German Chancellor Angela Merkel: "I will do all I can to find compromises and answers to the questions that are important for shaping globalisation. Naturally climate will also play a role here, and as you can imagine, there will be discussions here that won't be all that easy."

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson discussed "key international and bilateral" issues during a one-hour meeting on sidelines of the G20, according to the Foreign Ministry in Moscow.
