Germany’s finance minister Olaf Scholz and foreign minister Heiko Maas have declined an invitation to take part in a Washington gathering of ministers from the G7 group of large industrial countries.

Der Spiegel magazine reported on Thursday that Germany would instead be represented by state secretaries.

The magazine said other G7 countries had taken a similar decision.

The Finance and Foreign Ministries declined to comment on the report.
