The implementation of the second pillar of the global minimum tax deal is Germany's priority and further ideas should not be discussed until there is an agreement on the first pillar, German Finance Minister Christian Lindner said on Friday.

"In the second pillar we already have this in national legislation in Germany," Lindner said at a press conference on the sidelines of a meeting with his G7 counterparts in Italy. "Current work focuses on the first pillar."
