al-jazeera at the united nations let's move on to other news now and there's more red carpet treatment for u.s. president donald trump who is in beijing for key talks on trade and security but president xi jinping second day in the capital kicked off with an elaborate welcome ceremony at the great hall of the people north korea is set to dominate the agenda trump wants china to put more pressure on p.r. pyongyang over its nuclear weapons program nine billion dollars and deals were signed between u.s. and chinese companies on wednesday in the past trump has accused china of unfair trade practices and promised to narrow the trade deficit let's go to our correspondent steps last and now she's joining us live from beijing so what's happening today step. well elizabeth the two most powerful men in the world are getting down to business today after drinking tea and visiting the forbidden city and watching the peking oprah the told will be
6:06 am
a lot more serious today and probably also a lot less cheerful it was quite exceptional how president trump was accepted and welcomed by president xi at the forbidden city it was unprecedented that he invited an american president to have dinner dear and the president of president trump was very delighted he actually tweeted twice about it he managed to tweet despite a blockade here a blockage of twitter in china and the us of course that's of course pretty interesting as we speak after the welcoming ceremony at the great hall of the people the two presidents are now sitting down for the hot issues so to speak north korea and this trade imbalance between the two countries there will be also a government of bilateral talks between both cabinets are for that and there will also be a press statement held by both presidents president from will still be here also for the state dinner tonight and will only be leaving beijing in the morning and
6:07 am
what are we expecting from these meeting step what can they actually achieve given the the big differences here. yes exactly there are huge differences of course for president rampersad in the past but also in the last couple of days when he was in seoul and in tokyo that china should do more to rein in north korea and that basically the trade has to stop china has actually done more steps in the last few weeks to to restrict to trade with north korea also financial transactions are more limited now imports of textile are limited petroleum exports are less than before but president promised still not side of satisfied he wants a china to do a lot more but that's definitely definitely going to be very difficult because of course china doesn't want a collapse of the north korean regime with refugees flooding into china so there's
6:08 am
not much expectation that there will be a breakthrough on that issue the same will be when to trade imbalance that's a long term issue that has been playing against the two countries for a very long time the trade deficit is now three hundred forty seven billion dollars last year and of course donald trump once american businesses and products they have better access to china but that also will be a thing for the long term but in the short term of course as you said there have been deals signed already for nine billion u.s. dollars trade deals on energy and also on agriculture so of course president xi jinping won't stand donald trump back home with nothing of course he will give him this traditional chinese package basically to take away with him step thank you very much for that or for now that step plastered with the very latest from beijing thank you the u.k. is a better government has suffered yet another blow to the resignation of a second cabinet minister within a week international development secretary pretty patel stepped down after it was

pressure on north korea over its nuclear weapons program and the u.k.'s international development secretary priti patel has resigned after it was revealed she failed to disclose make sex with israeli officials while on holiday but says her actions have fallen below the high standards expected of her position. there as president hassan rouhani is warning saudi arabia that it will achieve nothing by threatening his country fallacious in the escalating war of words between pad on and they are this time of eleven and riyadh says the lebanese group hezbollah which is backed by iran has committed acts of aggression against it but iran. the fourth the resignation of lebanon's prime minister. mandatory i've never seen in history so far a situation whereby a country interfered with the affairs of another country like this bringing on his soil a leader from another country and keeping him of course we do not know whether he
6:16 am
stayed willingly or whether they kept him against his will but they forced him to resign and told him what to say this action is on presented in the history of our region well the tensions have left people and lebanon fearing the worst as a whole the reports from beirut. posters are springing up with messages of support for saddam heavy and has been for days since he announced his sudden resignation from the saudi capital this neighborhood the lebanese capital beirut is one of heidi the stronghold. returns to the country. we hope the government functions again because people put off their plans like buying a car on a flat no one knows what tomorrow will bring. regardless of whether they support or oppose her decision to step down people here are worried the resignation is linked to the saudi iranian rivalry in the region's past attempts to weaken iran's lebanese ally hezbollah has led to violence. who were
6:17 am
upset when he heard the news of the resignation it was just like when his father was killed there was a political earthquake they fear there could be an attack he wanted to return. already people are complaining that the pace of the economy has slowed down in a country already struggling with financial problems. but the resignation is linked to regional developments but it's affecting us from the first day our business suffered we need a new solution to save the. saudi arabia has made it clear it intends to confront iran and it seems it will start in lebanon. yes and no one knows what saudi arabia will do next i doubt there will be a war but they can for example send it back home the tens of thousands of lebanese working in the gulf. saudi arabia no longer considers hezbollah as its only enemy but all those who don't go away and take action against the group.
6:18 am
resignation was a saudi move against has the last it brought down a government riyadh considered too close to iran now saudi arabia wants lebanese leaders to sideline and curb hezbollah's powers but that is easier said than done hezbollah is a powerful political party with an armed wing stronger than the national army lebanon has seen turbulent years political crises and wars late last year there was a rare deal between saudi arabia and iran to leave lebanon at the sidelines of their power struggle that deal is now a thing of the past and tangling lebanon's future with a deepening regional crisis center. beirut. that has been a strong turnout in the iranian capital despite u.s. warnings against investment in the country secretary of state rice told european countries to avoid investing in iran but as the reports from the less hold to
