German Chancellor Angela Merkel will be paying U.S. President Donald Trump an official visit as early as March 14, according to news agency Reuters.
The information apparently came from Washington insiders.
German government spokesperson, Steffen Seibert, told reporters from German tabloid Bild: “We are not denying this.”
There would be further information in due course, Mr. Seibert added.
The last time the two leaders spoke officially was shortly after Mr. Trump’s election in January. The U.S. president said he would be attending the G20 meeting, the annual, international forum for 20 major world economies, in Hamburg in July and this was initially going to be the two leaders’ first meeting in person. However, Mr. Trump also said that he would invite Ms. Merkel to visit him soon.
