BERLIN, June 26 (Reuters) - Discussions on climate change will be particularly tough at the G20 summit of leading economies in Osaka, Japan, this year, a German government official said on Wednesday.
Countries within the group have widely differing views on climate change, with the U.S. President Donald Trump’s administration seen as a leading opponent of attempts to shift the global economy to lower carbon production.
“Negotiations on the topic of climate will be especially difficult this time,” a German government official said. (Reporting by Andreas Rinke Writing by Thomas Escritt Editing by Michelle Martin)
