  • BBC News published this video item, entitled “Angela Merkel’s last trip to Washington after 16 years in office – BBC News” – below is their description.

    German Chancellor Angela Merkel is making her farewell visit to Washington DC after nearly 16 years in office, during which time she has worked with four US presidents.

    Her tenure ushered in a warm transatlantic friendship, marked by occasional spats over Germany’s military spending, climate change and financial recovery policies.

    Ms Merkel isn’t running again in September’s German parliamentary election, and this last White House bilateral could be a litmus test for both nations going forward.
