Germany, China vow to deepen partnership amid global uncertainty

BERLIN, June 1 (Reuters) - Germany and China vowed to extend their relationship in an increasingly uncertain global environment, Chancellor Angela Merkel and Chinese Premier Li Keqiang said after talks in Berlin on Thursday.

“We are both ready to contribute to stability in the world,” the Chinese premier told reporters, echoing comments made by Merkel who said Germany should expand its partnership with China at such a time.

The two addressed a wide range of other issues from free trade, electro-mobility and diplomatic efforts to solve the North Korea crisis, where Merkel said Germany could get involved.
