He was later expected with German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier, before moving on to Brussels.

Merkel vented her frustration with Trump on Sunday after what she described as unsatisfactory talks at the meeting of G7 leaders, saying Germany - and Europe - could no longer completely rely on traditional allies.

Trump, meanwhile, has vocally decried Germany's trade surplus and comparatively modest military spending.

"China will stand by its responsibilities on climate change", Li told reporters in Berlin, according to a German translation, adding it was standing by its worldwide responsibilities and also setting national targets.

The Chinese premier will travel to Brussels to meet with European Union officialslater on Thursday, where he is expected to discuss issues such as climate policy, trade and North Korea.

Chinese President Xi Jinping has vowed greater openness in the economy, and Chinese officials say they are determined to promote the EU-China investment deal, negotiations for which were launched in 2013.

As the world awaits Trump's decision on climate change after he denounced the Paris pact in his 2016 presidential campaign, Li said China was committed to tackling the issue, both via the Paris Agreement and by setting national targets.
