German Chancellor, Angela Merkel, has suffered another trembling on Thursday just under a week after a similar incident raised questions about her health.

She had been standing next to President Frank-Walter Steinmeier, who was addressing a ceremony to formally appoint a new justice minister, before she started shaking.

A DPA photographer who was present at the event said the shaking went on for about two minutes before she took a few steps.

When similar incident had happened a week before, she had calmed nerves saying she was dehydrated and got better after taking a glass of water.

A German government spokesman said Merkel would not cancel any appointments on Thursday or Friday.

“The chancellor is well,” he said.

Merkel’s spokesman Steffen Seibert later tweeted she was on the way to Osaka for the G20 summit, and that “numerous bilateral talks with other leaders and government are planned”.

There were brief concerns about her health in 2014 when she was taken ill during a television interview. The broadcast was interrupted when she experienced a drop in blood pressure.

Seibert explained at the time the leader did not feel well for a moment, then ate and drank something and continued the interview
