>> German Chancellor Angela Merkel is set to make the case for more international cooperation on security, with US President Donald Trump's top brass in earshot, Vice President Mike Pence alongside a US delegation, including Defense Secretary James Mattis. America's European allies want clarity from the Trump administration on its foreign policy strategy.
Merkel is expected to use the security conference stage in Munich to say working together beats isolationism. That's the headline speech set for Saturday. The three day event kicking off Friday has become a key global security gathering. Participants are set to discuss everything from NATO and Russian ties, to the crisis in Syria.
All areas Trump has at some point considered significantly changing.
