leaning tower of baghdad calls to repair iraq's crumbling area to be ignored. china has issued a warning to the united states if it goes ahead with imposing trade tariffs and any agreements to end the dispute will be void u.s. commerce secretary wilbur ross has been holding talks with chinese leaders in beijing he said the meeting so far have been quote friendly and frank the two countries of straitened to protect tariffs on goods without two hundred fifty billion dollars each on stories live for us in beijing so it's all over what's been achieved. while it appears that not much has been achieved from this third round of trade talks between the u.s. and china now u.s. trade officials had arrived in beijing hoping to achieve a few things they wanted to press the chinese for firm commitments now the chinese
12:02 pm
had said they would substantially increase their purchases of u.s. agricultural and energy products the u.s. were hoping to push them for a specific figure perhaps persuade them to enter into long term contracts the us also hoping to discuss in better protection for intellectual property rights as well as other structural changes to the chinese economy which they say allowed chinese firms to compete unfairly but in the end it appears that none of those things have been achieved and instead china appears to have fired a warning shot at the u.s. now the state media is quote is saying that the chinese are now and saying that any agreement reached between china and the u.s. during these trade talks will be void if the u.s. pushes ahead with imposing trade sanctions including terrorists now this is clearly a reference to the u.s. threatening or really saying it's going to push ahead with saying twenty five
12:03 pm
percent tariffs on as much as fifty billion dollars worth of chinese goods but the final list of affected products to be announced on the fifteenth of june and this is despite having said that any tariffs would be put on hold while talks are ongoing now and some analysts had said that this was perhaps a tactic to strengthen u.s. position ahead of the negotiations but china is known sending a very clear signal that it's not going to be pushed around in this trade dispute it's only looking at a trade war now. well to be clear this is something that china and the u.s. are both trying very hard to avoid because this these round of these rounds of trade talks not just aimed at reducing the trade deficit between the u.s. and china it really is to avoid both sides imposing retaliate tree tariffs on each other now if there is a tariff for both countries the u.s. and china stand to lose because the prices of imports could go up there be
12:04 pm
a dent on exports there could be job cuts and there will be slower economic growth other countries could also lose especially those that rely heavily on trade with china and u.s. because if chinese and u.s. firms are going to be exporting less then these companies and the manufacturers that sell to these u.s. and chinese firms are going to see a reduction in their orders now there could be some winners in a trade war however countries that step up to fill the void for example if chinese are going to be buying fewer soybean from the u.s. just as an example then perhaps latin american farm this could step up to fill the void but an all out trade war will see more loses than winners especially in the global economy. thank you. and france is also warning the u.s. it has only a few days to avoid another potential trade war finance ministers from some the world's largest economies are concerned and disappointed by president trump's new taxes on steel and

12:10 pm
factions here inside gaza hamas in particular may well be trying to provoke or remind israel of the situation here as we understand there are efforts underway to get some kind of longer term ceasefire brokered between israel and hamas that remains a very difficult objective both sides remain far apart in terms of what they would want in any such deal and in the meantime there's always a possibility for these kinds of exchanges to escalate further than either side would ideally want it's a fourth day of anti austerity. protests in jordan in the biggest demonstration against the government in years riot police used tear gas to break up crowds calling for the cabinets resignation in amman protesters are angry at ministers for proving a new draft law on tax reforms the policy is influenced by the international monetary fund which jordanians accuse of interference at the start of the one mr buffett you know we support our brothers that are going down to the street to protest against
