BERLIN (Reuters) - Germany continues to support the Group of Seven communique despite U.S. President Donald Trump’s decision to back out of the declaration drawn up at a summit in Canada, a government spokesman said on Sunday.

“Germany stands by the jointly agreed communique,” Steffen Seibert said in a short statement.
