on the other carney see the world from a different perspective only on al-jazeera. this is al-jazeera. i'm adrian for they get and this is the news hour live from doha coming up in the next sixty minutes trade talks between the united states and china come to a close with beijing issuing a threat to the u.s. . an anti immigrant right wing party looks to make gains in slovenia's general election. days of anti hysterically protests in jordan culminate in the biggest demonstrations in years. and the leaning tower of baghdad calls to repair rocks crumbling heritage fall on
4:01 pm
deaf ears. as global anger and outrage towards the united states over the imposition of tariffs first talks between the u.s. and china ended on sunday but no deals were announced beijing however warned the white house that any deals produced will not take effect if donald trump goes ahead with tariffs on chinese goods but that's not all france has warned the u.s. that a trade war could erupt in just a few days finance ministers from the group of seven industrialized nations meet in canada sharply rebuked the u.s. over trump's protectionist policies let's bring it out to serious john hendren who's in washington d.c. . adrian the u.s. went to china and came back with nothing there have been trade talks both in china and ahead of the g. seven summit in canada and when it came to the chinese negotiations the u.s.
4:02 pm
was trying to narrow a three hundred seventy five billion dollars trade gap tried to get china to agree to reduce that gap by two hundred billion dollars that did not happen and in fact in the end the u.s. renewed threats to put twenty five percent tariffs on some fifty billion dollars worth of chinese products and that did not go over well the chinese have already designated things that they will retaliate with they want to put tariffs on american soil beans small aircraft whiskey electric vehicles and orange shoes and interestingly those are products that are generally made in the red states the republican states that president donald trump needs to vote for his party later on this year in midterm elections in order to keep his party in office in congress so things went particularly badly there and then there was the meeting in canada this is a meeting of the g. seven countries ahead of a larger meeting later this week in that case it wasn't wilbur ross they sent steve
4:03 pm
minucci in the treasury secretary and newton had nothing to offer those countries were all upset over us tariffs twenty five percent on steel ten percent on aluminum and we knew jim was not able to give them the one thing they wanted and that was relief on the tariffs we put together a story on that and this is what those leaders had to say. with days to go before the g. seven summit in canada the economic alliance is fractured the allies are angry and openly talking about a possible trade war we we think this action is inappropriate we think it's absurd to consider canada a security risk the united states and therefore we've taken a targeted and considered approach to retaliation france's foreign minister owns who says unless the u.s. reverses its new tariffs on steel and aluminum from europe canada and mexico a trade war is just a few days away. at a meeting ahead of this week's g. seven summit in canada u.s. treasury secretary stephen moore nugent tried to his ways the allies president
4:04 pm
trump has been very clear in wanting to address trade issues i don't think in any way the u.s. is abandoning its leadership in the global economy quite the contrary i think we have very broad objectives that are that are across a rebalancing the trade relationship and the trade deficit but he could not offer the one thing u.s. allies want tariff relief trump briefed by minucci and is not backing down taking to twitter on saturday he wrote when you are almost eight hundred billion dollars a year down on trade you can't lose a trade war many economists disagree they say everyone loses in a trade war because a vicious cycle of tariffs makes goods more expensive all around now some u.s. companies say they fear a trade conflict could end the global economic expansion the upcoming g. seven meeting was expected to celebrate our estimates at this point and these are very rough. we would expect another ten to fifteen percent drop and we're also
4:05 pm
suffering because of the steel tariffs which was the genesis of all this everything we do involves steel our fencing everything else is steel related so we're seeing increased prices from those things too so it is kind of a domino effect european leaders have already chosen their targets for retaliation iconic american products like harley-davidson motorcycles levi's jeans jack daniels whiskey in florida oranges the next casualties in what could be an escalating trade conflict so john is sort of easing off and walking away from a trade war we seem to be getting closer to one. that's right and things are going to be tough at the g. seven meeting this week they had all kinds of things that they wanted to discuss on their agenda but now it's all going to be about trade that will be the focus of these meetings the finance ministers at that meeting on yesterday gave steve nugent
4:06 pm
the u.s. treasury secretary terry a letter to give to donald trump that letter said that they were very disappointed and they expected some significant action on these trade talks next week but we got a little insight on trump's negotiating style this week from jeff zucker he is the head of n.b.c. when trump show the apprentice was on suckers that after the first series trump was getting fifty thousand dollars per episode he demanded a million and ended up accepting sixty thousand dollars per episode so if the chinese and the g seven leaders get anything like the ending negotiations that n.b.c. got they may be satisfied at the end of the week but we will wait to hear on that so many thanks to you john hendren then live in washington. anger is mounting in jordan against proposed tax increases there's been another day of protests calling for the government to resign the international monetary fund is backing the tax rises to reduce the national debt had a hoax to reports. that the largest anti-government rallies in five years in what's
4:07 pm
regard as one of the most stable middle east countries the protest movement initially started by trade unions has swelled nationwide as today to show their frustration i. asked what i'm up a lot how local while citizens now have no power the searching for the children's daily food women are looking in garbage containers to feed their kids and every day we are surprised by rising prices and taxes the problem is not just the tax well the jordanian citizen right now. his pockets are empty are completely empty. saw the government has to listen. to the sound of the people jordan is one of the most expensive. countries and the region and on the top of the wards two with no resources that's unjust for the people of jordan. the increase in sales tax and employees being tax move has infuriated the protestors and they want the government
4:08 pm
to resign. king abdullah has stood by prime minister hani will keep despite calls to fire him the king's been instead calling for talks between m.p.'s and government ministers but moki is under international pressure to reform jordan's economy and cut its thirty seven billion dollar debt that is equivalent to ninety five percent of g.d.p. . the international monetary fund approved a seven hundred million loan to jordan two years ago to lower public debt and increase growth jordan relies heavily on financial help from the u.s. u.a.e. and until recently saudi arabia which has cut funding king abdullah is a key u.s. ally in the strategically important region which borders syria israel and iraq regional time or has worsened the kingdom's money problems and it sheltering one point four million syrian refugees that according to the hashemite government and those refugees look no closer to returning home. it's also has
4:09 pm
a large population of refugees from the war in iraq plus two million palestinian refugees have settled in the kingdom. the king recently reversed plans to raise petrol prices foreign protests and these latest protests against austerity measures are further demands for change. algis there let's explore the issues here a little more with the use of doubt who's the director of the development economics program of the doha institute good to have you with us in the studio to the protesters in jordan have a point or have people had it a little too good for too long that their government has been protecting them from the harsh economic realities of the world you said it yourself i don't think the people of jordan had it so good for go along with unemployment rates on the twentieth of sam law labor force participation poverty. the people of jordan will not go to the streets if things we have saw nice for saw with
4:10 pm
a very bad distribution of income without enough income of course. that the price hike in fuel prices and raising taxes is actually the wrong policy at this time for an economy like jordan's this wouldn't have contractionary effect for the world singing the livelihood of the people ok so what is wrong with with jordan's economy we know that that saudi arabia and the u.a.e. withdrawn the investment which which jordan relied heavily upon there's been a huge influx of refugees into jordan has done as well yes the main problem actually is that jordan has been at the crossroads of conflict for so many years starting from one thousand forty eight with palestinian refugees on thing to do with syrian refugees so jordan is always bombarded with refugees from all countries surrounding it and that what six the pressure on their resources which means budget deficits now the i.m.f.
4:11 pm
was always telling people to use us thought they might just talk so that they will give them loans because if loans are not repaid they will have to be written off and that's not popular with the donuts and therefore there you have a dilemma or it given that the country's economic problems are not entirely of its own making with the influx of the refugees as we said the money from saudi arabia the u.a.e. being withdrawn at the i.m.f. so requests because they're not making demands of jordan or they but the guidance they're requesting the recommendations they are reasonable. at this time i think so because well that their claim is that you have told them with this waste that they have probably assuming that a lot of this bread goes thrown away. which i don't think is the reason of it but. the idea is that they had this they do that to many other developing countries not only jordan jordan has been through this before remember in ninety nine to six the brit devaluation when the people rose against raising the prices of the bread it
4:12 pm
happened in morocco it happened in other countries as when i saw right now with jordan has a fixed exchange rate policy which means they come up to as monetary policy for much and they have to depend heavily on the fiscal policy if you want the economy to grow you don't need to be using fiscal contraction which is the raising taxes also raising fuel prices will cause negative supply shocks which raises the price to live in which i also felt that it is the purchasing power of the ordinary people how dangerous is this for jordan's government and its king. for now it's a critical period with all that's happening in the neighboring countries you need a place with some stable it at least they're doing a lot of good for anybody countries on the stimulus for iraq is for syrians for live unease i think it's important that countries increase their don't know aid which can help you know alleviate some of these problems ok really good to talk to
4:13 pm
you what so many thanks indeed for being with us yousif. thank you so you're with al-jazeera still to come on the program the battle to convince people of the threat of it and the democratic republic of congo plus. nobody understands what we're feeling ok because many people there are in their homes their own kids. six months after harakah maria hit poza rica hundred sissel struggling to rebuild their lives. and install the washington capitals take control of state the. cup finals mistake on that list championship type details coming up later. the deputy prime minister of qatar says that his country is stronger than it was one year ago when neighboring countries imposed an economic blockade saudi arabia
4:14 pm
the united arab emirates bahrain and egypt also cut diplomatic relations on june fifth last year and i is their accusations that it fosters terrorism. through the unwavering resilience of the thought that the people and the sound leadership of his highness the emir we were able to weather the storm and emerge from it stronger than ever before in the years since the blockade was imposed oil production of national product including medicine and food have a good on its expansion we have built on our bilateral relations and have explored the new and promising partnership to grow and develop all the crisis created shortages in cut off food supply chain iran was one of the countries that stepped in to help fill the gap but as al-jazeera zain describe the reports now deepening ties between the two nations could ultimately prove problematic this family run farm near to herat has been selling produce to qatar for more than ten
4:15 pm
years it used to export two to three truckloads of food to qatar a week since the blockade began demand has soared to two to three truckloads a day. farms like this all over iran have increased production to fill the gap in the country market after saudi arabia the u.a.e. and other countries severed supply routes what caused a shock in qatar is an opportunity for iranian businesses but souther the knee of irani says profits are not the only reason exporters are keen to supply cut there's markets in the us coming up i'll buy me one i'm saying this from the bottom of my heart we like katarina people we don't feel that our neighboring countries and islamic countries are separate from us we consider them as a religious brothers and we are happy that this market exists for us to supply it it's embarrassing for us to say that we are helping qatar we are two brothers at one table and are eating from one table and we are happy that today qatari brothers
4:16 pm
are with us at one table. with business links all over the world the exporter says the blockade is bad for everyone in the region and hopes it ends soon you can find a little bit of everything here fruits vegetables basic necessities being grown here in iran and will eventually end up in the homes of people living in qatar in iran in qatar have had serious disagreements over the wars in syria and yemen and iranian support for hezbollah in lebanon but they speak with one voice in support of the palestinian people and share the world's largest natural gas field and in the last year disputes with saudi arabia have brought them closer together. we felt qatar was being treated unfairly so we opened our doors we let qatar airways use our airspace and we used five important ports in the south of the country to send our help relations with qatar have a bright horizon because our qatari friends are well aware about the intentions of our officials of the listener robbie served as iran's ambassador to qatar he says
4:17 pm
both countries can cooperate on much more but he admits for qatar the appearance of siding too openly with iran is tricky. home to the largest american air base in the middle east and u.s. central command headquarters cozying up to iran also further countries escalate tensions even more. those leaders the last year has been a delicate balancing act but whatever happens next people living in qatar are unlikely to forget the neighbors willing to lend a hand when they needed it most. modeste the tuesday this week marks the first anniversary of the beginning of that blockade and we'll have a special program on tuesday looking at the political economic and human impact of the crisis you can see it begin it beginning at eighteen hundred hours g.m.t. on tuesday here on houses era people in slovenia are voting today in an early
4:18 pm
parliamentary election former prime minister. young leads an anti immigrant immigration party that's predicted to win the most seats but some parties have ruled out working with him to form a government immigration is a major issue of the hundreds of thousands of refugees pass through slovenia on their way to western europe let's go live now to slovenia as capital. al-jazeera sasa deal or is there such a twenty percent of voters undecided before polling day some of the opinion polls were inconsistent to say the least could the former prime minister really be on track to win most seats. there's the question adrian yes a mistake on his young family his a as the as a right wing party are leading the poll with to n.c. up to twenty five percent of the vote but it can be tricky for him to form a new coalition government for if unless he gets more than twenty five percent of
4:19 pm
the vote which would be an election a surprise it would be tricky for i haven't heard much of the political leaders the leaders of political parties here in slovenia saying we are going to form a coalition government. another key element is that up to forty percent of the electorate are regarded as undecided people who can't tell yet which way they will turn or daily kos their ability for more explanation joining me and now is a professor of college from university of uganda thank you very much for being with us professor why is it so difficult for political parties to say we are going. well the answer is quite simple their mindset is different to the mindset of mystery and sure mystery is quite close to feeders seen hungary into mr kaczynski sparty in poland he's not only against immigrants he's he's also
4:20 pm
here's why different attitude to gardening rule floor freedom of press and remains right so for the left and center center parties going conclusion with him would mean a kind of a betrayal of their mean where you so is he in position to form a new government if he gets twenty five percent of the vote we have proportional electoral system so we need to wait through the end of elections there are a few small parties for which is it is not clear whether they will enter the parliament or not but if they enter into if you succeed this succeeds to persuade one of the bigger players he might be able to form the government in this case a rino will quite likely follow garion and. paul and ways in european union you've mentioned the refugees and the refugee crisis and also crisis with migrants and mr broad this question to the political campaign and is it really important and how important it is for the ordinary cyrenians of this question of migrants when there
4:21 pm
was living there was a just chance it route well you know we are only two million people and we have half a million refugees walking across slovenia and in those days there was a big a lot of people who were awarded what would happen to all these people would get stuck in slovenia because we definitely could not handle that many people but this did not happen to even more so there is practically no refugees in slovenia now so this attitude which is conducted by mystery i think it's quite irresponsible and making a fuss out of nothing but still there is enough people who are afraid of this question and they are supporting king and what you see on the left wing do you see a rising star somebody who will going to make a potentially surprise. appearance tonight well we should see last week the polls were quite fit favorites to the to the left which is the most left
4:22 pm
party which was winning quotes from social democrats but this is still very much very much open and i don't you know this is a business for all the ladies through to say what should happen to the future does not my job thank you very much professor for being with us. from university of havana just to say that polls are closing at seven o'clock central european time such a many thanks indeed al jazeera is such a deal it's there live in slovenia's capital the piano. opposition supporters in macedonia have been on the streets calling for an early election thousands demonstrated in the capital skopje. accusing the left wing governments of ruining the economy since taking power over a year ago protesters are also alarmed at the possible change of name for their country greece has a modem province called macedonia talks being held to resolve a dispute over the name. italy's new populist leaders are promising to create jobs

4:24 pm
opposite the other one can make the government fall the irony is not lost on the party faithful it is in one sense a marriage of convenience between two anti establishment rivals that want to revolutionize the political landscape especially with the e.u. is concerned even if it means compromise there are high hopes but for some the decision by five star to enter into a coalition with the far right is being seen as a betrayal of the polls there's little common ground between the true question is whether they can stick it out for better or worse and even the promise of a new beginning has left some who have supported five star i'm convinced you see by yourself you're going to mix a couple with a dog and expect that everything goes by i hope it goes the spine of course. but is it possible we'll see we're going to see and for supporters of the leg up party
4:25 pm
they know the. that hard work lies ahead finding common ground but they think that it can be done and. it's a challenge which can be overcome i trust the leader of our party and if he says that there are competent people in the ministries then i believe him back at the church the bride and groom make their vows richer for poorer but as in love and in politics there are no guarantees as to what lies ahead so i go rome army commanders in the southern philippines say the gunman linked to i saw a regrouping at a tricking children into joining the fights. dog and reports now from the ruined city of moore are we where gunman were defeated by the army seven months ago but haven't gone away. ibrahim is fourteen years old and lives in an evacuation camp with his father he says a group of men approached him a few weeks ago they told him they were police officers and invited him to join

4:41 pm
this is too much and by the way this is a holy month of ramadan and less than world people most of the people are passing this is one of the reasons why the participation is not that is not that much but prisons are done is expected to call out to the kurds. and to make a call for them to this ng gauge a day's shout from the k.k. the output to the sound workers party he will be promising investment as you have also sad that he's used election promises are most of focusing on foreign policy and improving the economy but when a look at why he is the ruling party is alec tauriel program there is no sign of lifting the state of emergency which means more security measures in turkey's south and also he doesn't mention any early relaunch of the peace process that should place between two thousand and thirteen and two thousand and fifteen which actually
4:42 pm
kurdish people take some rest from the is from the p.k. k. and they are suffering in economy wise so to be honest i must admit that kurds are not expecting much from our don speech today ok. what about their votes though ok a lot of people who are supporters there at this rally but given as you say suspended the peace process given the military operations against kurds in northern syria can he really expect to go on a kurdish people's vote in that part of turkey. well admin you know turkish government launch military operation in northern syria against the why don't you think that that was an offshoot of the kurdistan workers' party which is there or is it going to pay for the turkish government or maybe. instead of to make the young people have family members they go the other side of
