It is clear now that German Chancellor Angela Merkel will miss the opening of the G20 summit in Argentina.
This is due to her plane making an emergency landing in Cologne.
The plane apparently had developed a technical problem, it was informed.
According to tweets by German journalists on board the Airbus A340, named Konrad Adenauer after Germany’s first post-war chancellor, Merkel will leave for Madrid on Friday and head on a commercial flight for Buenos Aires with a
slimmed down delegation.
The plane on landing met on the tarmac by fire engines, as per local media reports.
It is also said that the captain of the plane told the passengers the plane would have to turn back as a
technical problem was disrupting several electrical systems.>
