Angela Merkel health fears: German leader seen shaking again ahead of G20 summit – VIDEO

The German chancellor appeared unstable on her feet and trembling as she met with the German President, in her second spell of shaking in under two weeks. Footage shows Mrs Merkel crossing her arms as though to steady herself while attending a reception by President Steinmeier.

A spokesman for the German Chancellor has confirmed she is fine and will be participating in the swearing-in of the new Justice Minister later today.

Mrs Merkel is then set to fly on a German Government Airbus A340 to attend the G20 summit in Japan.

Her spokesman also confirmed the German Chancellor will still be participating in the G20 meeting in Japan, with everything set to go ahead as planned.

Mrs Merkel also left onlookers concerned last week as she was seen visibly shaking and unsteady as she greeted Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy in Berlin.

The video footage was taken as a military band played the German and Ukrainian national anthems outside the Chancellery.

Following the unsettling moment, a journalist during a news conference later asked the German Chancellor about the unusual interlude, asking: “We saw that when you were waiting outside during the military honours, you started shaking.

“How are you personally feeling? Should citizens be worried?”

Chancellor Merkel reportedly smiled, shook her head and mouthed “no”.

Ms Merkel then responded: “I have now had at least three glasses of water. That was apparently needed. And therefore I’m very well.”

Chancellor Merkel turns 65 next month – it is not known if she has any health issues.

The weather appeared sunny and the temperature in Berlin is currently 29C, sparking speculation the shaking was associated with dehydration. However, the cause is unknown.

Following the meeting with visiting President Zelenskiy, Ms Merkel confirmed the two leaders had discussed the Minsk peace agreement.

She said: “As long as there is no progress on this front, the sanctions cannot be lifted and the sanctions related to Crimea can only be lifted if Crimea returns to Ukraine.”
