  • President Donald Trump and German Chancellor Angela Merkel during their bilateral meeting Wednesday

In 2015, the same aircraft was grounded due to a technical problem shortly before Merkel was to fly to New Delhi, forcing her to switch to a distinctly less luxurious A310 troop carrier.

The aircraft lost communications for almost an hour, forcing it to make an emergency landing in Germany's Cologne-Bonn airport. Last year, Merkel was delayed on a trip to Egypt because a windshield heater malfunctioned.

Despite this nazlican the situation, a meeting of German Chancellor Angela Merkel with Russian President Vladimir Putin will take place, despite the delay of the German delegation at the opening of the summit of "Big twenty".

"It was a serious malfunction", Merkel told reporters travelling with her aboard the "Konrad Adenauer", a former Lufthansa airlines jet built in 1999 and named after post-war Germany's first chancellor.

Defence Minister Ursula von der Leyen was informed about the incident immediately, and tried for hours to organise an alternate aircraft to carry Merkel and her entourage.

"The part concerned was an electronic distribution box, which we have changed", Henrich, adding that the Air Force was sending another plane to Argentina on Friday for Merkel's return journey from the G20.

Putin warmly welcomed Merkel and asked her about her plans for the summit.

The talks with Merkel was not the only cancelled meeting, as earlier the U.S. administration cancelled a meeting with Russia's President Vladimir Putin. She is due to arrive in time for the summit leaders' dinner on Friday. Back then, the issue involved damage caused by rodents, German media outlets reported.
