World politics are making a stop in Germany, Sigmar Gabriel recently quipped.
Mr. Gabriel, Germany’s vice chancellor and foreign minister, was referring to a meeting of chief diplomats from the world’s 20 largest economies, otherwise known as the G20, which will take place in Bonn this Thursday and Friday. After the meeting, they will continue on to the Munich Security Conference over the weekend.
The guest who is drawing the most attention is undoubtedly Rex Tillerson, the new U.S. secretary of state and a former chief executive of Exxon Mobil. It will be the first time that Mr. Tillerson will meet with his Russian counterpart, Sergey Lavrov, in his capacity as one of the United States’ top public servants.
