BERLIN, July 10, (Xinhua/GNA) - German Chancellor Angela Merkel was seen shaking uncontrollably again on Wednesday at a welcoming ceremony for Finland's visiting Prime Minister Antti Rinne, local media reported.

Merkel's body shook when she stood with the Finnish prime minister, reports said.

This was her third such shaking in public within weeks.

This one was allegedly slighter than the previous two, according to the report.

On June 27, the chancellor's whole body suddenly began to tremble while German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier was handing over the certificate of appointment to the new German Minister of Justice, Christine Lambrecht.

Merkel was first shaking visibly at a welcoming ceremony in Berlin for Ukraine's new President Volodymyr Zelensky on June 18.
