Merkel told reporters Thursday that the "U.S.is an important part of the G-20" and that even though the European summit participants are united in standing by the Paris climate accord even after the Trump administration has made a decision to pull out, they would work to find "joint solutions" to that and other issues at the July 7-8 summit in Hamburg.

Earlier this year, Erdogan accused Germany, and Chancellor Angela Merkel, of "committing Nazi practices" after some local authorities blocked appearances by Turkish ministers hoping to campaign in Germany ahead of Turkey's referendum on expanding presidential powers.

"Foreign politicians who trample on our values when at home must not be allowed a stage for speeches in Germany", said Schulz, according to German based Deutsche Welle news.

Speaking after meetings with her counterparts from France, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain and Norway, and EU representatives, Merkel said Thursday she "regrets" the USA decision but that the European G-20 participants are "united" in their support for the agreement.

Gabriel said in an emailed statement he informed his Turkish counterpart "weeks ago" that an Erdogan rally in Germany "wouldn't be a good idea" because of the security measures required - and "inappropriate" given tensions between the two countries.

Germany announced Thursday that it would deny permission for Erdogan to address Turks when he visits for the upcoming Group of 20 meeting in Hamburg.

He pointed to stretched police resources around the G-20 summit as well as Germany's current tensions with Turkey.

German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel has advised Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan not to hold public events during his trip to G20 summit. Erdogan was expected to address the representatives of the Turkish community on the second day of the summit.

The German government also demanded the Turkish president not include in his security team the security bodyguards who face arrest warrants in the US for attacking protesters in Washington during Erdogan's visit to the country on May 16.

Merkel told the German parliament Thursday that "protectionism can not be a solution" to the world's problems.

With her strident Bundestag rhetoric, coloured in part by September's looming federal election, the German leader signalled she is not interested in a lowest common denominator agreement.

Erdogan will attend the G20 summit in Hamburg next week where the summit will be taking place from July 7-8.

Ahead of preparatory talks on Friday in Berlin with European G20 leaders and EU officials, the chancellor warned Mr Trump that Europe would not be dragged down by United States unilateral trade and climate policies.
