"A format that is explicitly based on respecting worldwide law is not viable for Russian Federation at present", she said, adding that Germany maintains frequent diplomatic contact with the Kremlin. Those words, spoken at a beer-tent election rally, were a reaction to Trump hectoring European leaders for not spending enough on defense at a North Atlantic Treaty Organization summit in Brussels.

Merkel acknowledged that growing tensions between the US and its allies over Washington's withdrawal from global agreements on climate change and Iran's denuclearization and its newly imposed trade tariffs would make the upcoming G7 summit in Canada a tense meeting.

"All of that confirms the assessment that the world is being reorganized", Merkel told the EPP.

Canada will host the event for the sixth time this year, the previous five of which were also in Quebec (1981), Toronto (1988), Halifax (1995), Kananaskis (2002) and Muskoka (2010).

The new format was put in place by the coalition that took office in March.

"I will of course try to speak to the USA president about the current problems that we have overall, in particular on Iran and on trade tariffs", Merkel told the Bundestag lower house of parliament. "We negotiated in a very tough way with Greece and in the end we reached a good accord", Merkel said.

There were few personal attacks during the session, which addressed issues ranging from diesel emissions to the number of women in parliament.

Merkel, who appeared unimpressed by Netanyahu's remarks about a looming genocide by Iran against Israel, reiterated that Berlin remains committed to the terms of the Iran nuclear deal signed by China, Russia, France, Britain, the United States and Germany in 2015. But "I'll come back".
