on a process and its deescalation zones co-sponsored by russia turkey and iran as being responsible for a marked decrease in violence he wants to keep that going and also say that he should meet as often as they possibly can but mostly this press conference dealt with trade before the incident two years ago where turkey shot a russian war plane out of the sky over the turkey syria border these two countries have had a very productive trade relationship that was completely shattered by that incident and over the last few months they have been working towards getting that back on track again russia has been lifting the embargo put in place and getting frozen infrastructure projects like energy pipelines and nuclear reactors bringing those out of the chiller and getting them moving again we haven't quite got there

trump the u.s. president there in southeast asia and it was just a day or two ago where he said that he would be willing to negotiate or arbitrate some of these issues on the south china sea and then suddenly you have china coming in and reaching this agreement with asio on that this is something that they can work out with themselves. this looks like it's going to try to freeze out the united states that is probably china's intention and in doing so it may try to codify and legitimate some of the the island building that it's done it's taken steps to militarize some of those islands and it would certainly like to lock that in perhaps that is something that it can do with some of these agreements and that will probably be its aim. still ahead an al-jazeera. hero's welcome for the french president to one of the struggling suburbs but critics say he's anything but. the u.k. foreign secretary apologizes for his controversial comments about a british citizen jailed in iran.
