that counts alone your clarify its position on independence as a shrewd one by putting the ball straight back in catalonia of course potentially exposes divisions inside the independence movements that might buy madrid some time take the pressure out of the immediate situation but also leave the crisis open ended. where the protestors in barcelona go from here is a good question what good would like nothing more than for them to turn on each other destroy their own movements that would rule out the need for mediation which madrid insists there is no place laurence li al jazeera which it. rex tillerson has called on turkey to provide evidence for accusations that local u.s. embassy employees were linked to the two thousand and sixteen failed coup and express his profound concern over the rest the u.s. embassy in ankara suspended most of these services after a staff member was detained over talley ated by canceling american existing visas
and stopping issuing new ones dynasty book has more. well late wednesday secretary of state rex tillerson said he wants to see evidence behind why two consulate employees from the u.s. were arrested within the last year one of those employees was arrested just a little less than a week ago the turkish government said that he was a spy and claim that he was linked to a u.s. based turkish businessman who turkey says was behind the failed coup a year ago now in addition to that the deputy foreign minister was visiting washington today he was meeting with the u.s. chamber of commerce trying to reaffirm the relationship with the u.s. the u.s. is a very strong trading partner with turkey the two countries do about twenty billion dollars you know bilaterally every year and trade seventeen hundred u.s. companies do business with turkey he says it's that both sides are very dependent
on each other economically and he is hopeful that the two countries can get past this latest crisis you know want to be very clear we don't want these dispute to last more than a second. we respond that you know likewise because to a proud nation we are a sovereign nation. it's you know we seeing it you know to see these to be reversed now additionally defense secretary james madison's he's continuing to work with his counterpart diplomatically on military operations in turkey he said that they are continuing to talk again he reaffirmed today that turkey is a very strong nato ally to the u.s. turkey is also home to
a very important and strategic air force base so everyone involved here is optimistic at least hopeful that this tit for tat so to speak over these pieces will be resolved quickly. now u.s. president donald trump has denied reports he wants to dramatically increase the size of the country's nuclear arsenal u.s. media published the report citing three unnamed officials trumps acknowledged policy differences between himself and top republicans in his cabinet and congress but he's rejecting claims he saw a ten fold increase in washington stock of nuclear weapons. to senior senators in the u.s. have criticized president trump for a delay in implementing sanctions against russia in a joint statement republican john mccain and democrat ben cardin said the white house has yet to identify which elements of the russian state should be sanctioned despite and told the first deadline they say the delay calls into question the
trumpet ministrations commitment to the sanctions bill catulus prime minister justin trudeau has wrapped up his trip to washington d.c. a visit dominated by the future of the north american free trade agreement u.s. president trump suggested that tough talks to rework nafta could fail and that mexico might be dumptruck the three country pact but trudeau as optimistic about the negotiations saying the meeting with trump went well the talks were held against the backdrop of another trade dispute over hefty duties the u.s. has placed on canadian made bombarding airplanes ellen fisher has more from washington d.c. . with the forefront of talks in drawing up a new north american free trade agreement underway here in washington canadian prime minister dustin's who door came to meet with president donald trump the donald trump has been on the record since the moment he moved into the white house that he would like to see a new nuff to agreement an agreement that has been in place for almost twenty five years on both canada and mexico see until this point has been working relatively
well but wants to see a new modernize their agreement and justin trudeau a says that is understandable in the circumstances but while donald trump says he may want to walk away justin trudeau believes there is the possibility that they can come up with a new deal and he says it's up to the politicians to convince people why it is such a good thing. part of getting these trade deals to move forward requires us to get support public support for these trade deals and demonstrating that we're hearing the concerns that people feel and responding to them i think helps significantly in making the case that trade can and will be good for all citizens before justin trudeau came here to the canadian embassy to address the media he was sitting in the oval office with donald trump point donald trump said whether or not there was a new deal really still is in the hands of a negotiator it's possible we won't be able to make
a deal and it's possible that we will we have a great personal relationship and we have a relationship now as as two countries i think that's just one example but we'll see if we can do the kind of changes that we need we have to protect our workers and in all fairness the prime minister wants to protect canada and his people also the city government to set a time scale of the end of the year to come up with a new nafta agreement justin trudeau we still believe that possible but you'll go from here in washington so mexico will meet with the president to discuss the progress on the top of what to do if there can't be an agreement. well i was there was political contribution bill schneider says the state of relations between the u.s. and canada doesn't bode well for nafta. a lot of business people think that this is all a pretext for getting out of the nafta deal i mean relations between the united states and canada which are always assumed to be very close are probably at the poorest level they've been in our lifetime for many decades and it took down trying to make
that happen a lot of business leaders in the u.s. chamber of commerce normally a staunchly republican organization things that trump is trying to use these negotiations as a pretext to kill nafta there is a civil war going on in the republican party between the president republican president donald trump and the republican establishment in congress the republican establishment is very close to business but this is a deal the nafta the idea of killing nafta is anathema to business it would create chaos in a lot of american industries farming and particularly automobiles and they are dead set against ending nafta and you know who supports ending nafta labor unions who are not normally allies of any republican so the head on the bulletin of the decade since liberia's civil war why some say they come out. and a major steel company is on the fire in japan affecting companies well why.
