Trump and Merkel discuss Libya, West Africa during UK visit
U.S. President Donald Trump and German Chancellor Angela Merkel discussed the situation in Libya and West Africa during a meeting in Britain on Wednesday, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said.
"President Trump and Chancellor Merkel had a pull-aside meeting for about 10 minutes," Sanders said.
"They agreed to discuss further at the G20," she added. The G20 meeting takes place in Japan later this month.
Trump also briefly met Sajid Javid, Britain's interior minister and a candidate to replace Prime Minister Theresa May, Sky News reported.
Trump, in Britain on the final day of a three-day state visit, has also spoken to other candidates hoping to succeed May after she announced plans to resign as leader of the ruling Conservative Party on June 7.
