ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) World leaders posed for a traditional family photo at the Group of 20 summit in Germany on Friday (July 7). U.S. President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin, a veteran businessman and a former spy, are meeting in person for the first time in the most highly anticipated encounter on the sidelines of the G20 summit. The summit also brings together Trump and Xi at a time when Washington is raising pressure on Beijing to rein in North Korea and threatening the Chinese with punitive trade measures. Amid the big egos and seemingly intractable conflicts, the host, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, faces the daunting task of steering leaders towards a consensus on trade, climate and migration - all issues that have become more contentious since Trump entered the White House half a year ago.
