Europe's main stock markets extended a recovery at the open on Friday, with London's benchmark FTSE 100 index rising 0.6 percent to 7,693.58 points compared with the close on Thursday.

In the eurozone, Frankfurt's DAX 30 index climbed 0.5 percent to 12,549.23 points and the Paris CAC 40 grew 0.4 percent to 5,428.04.

World stock markets have recovered over the past two days after a mid-week slump when Washington threatened to hammer Beijing with tariffs on a further $200 billion of Chinese imports, ratcheting up the global trade war.
