Stocks in Europe open lower Tuesday morning, as investors monitor various political developments across the globe.
The pan-European Stoxx 600 was down by 0.13 percent to 375.09 with almost every sector in the red.
In Asia, stocks were mostly mixed as investors closely monitored the Chinese annual parliamentary meeting where Chinese Premier Li Keqiang said that there will be greater risks ahead for the economy and Beijing must be prepared.
Meanwhile, trade talks between the U.S. and China remain on the radar for investors. Sources told CNBC Monday that these negotiations are in the "final stages" and a summit at the end of the month in Mar-a-Lago might take place if a deal is reached.
