could. the. above. have to do. with. the extraordinary scenes in brussels as donald trump gets a nato summit off to a bad tempered start at one point saying germany is captive to russia. hello i'm. also coming up in the program. china val's retaliation for the latest us terrorist threat in the escalating trade to speech. schoolmates of thailand's rescued boys celebrate outside the hospital where doctors
11:01 am
say or lowering good health class. after a twenty year wait france can again dream of world cup glory as their team reaches the final in russia. but let's start with those extraordinary scenes that are bound to shape a testy nato summit in brussels the u.s. president as bastid allies for their trade relations with russia in a heated exchange with the nato secretary general yes mr trump said it was unfair that europe relied on the u.s. for defense budget bold energy for russia the president had already criticize fellow members saying they aren't paying enough for defense. let's go live to our
11:02 am
diplomatic it is a jane's base he's there at the summit taking place in brussels that donald trump came out fighting didn't. martine that we are used for the last eighteen months to a president who is unconventional to a president who is not very diplomatic but what we just heard at this breakfast meeting was quite extraordinary. now if you look at it germany is a captive for a ship because they supply they got rid of their coal to get rid of this nuclear they getting so much of the oil and gas from russia i think is something that they are asked to look at i think it's very appropriate for you and i think we did it appropriate i don't know what you can do about it but it certainly doesn't seem to make sense that they pay billions of dollars to russia and now we have to defend them against russia. not mangers the non-so trying to mine nations around the there are some problems differences on them to some holes and some disagreements on that
11:03 am
i've got so. far come from or from the germans will issue a lot of these three but the strength on they do is that despite these differences we have always been able to unite our own for poles good to protect on the phone to tell the people from the sound of your story together that. if you go through a war from the cold war focus of your story together or. how are you going to get what a country is getting its energy from the person you want protection to get or to. be called to understand of the when we stand together also when dealing with russia we are stronger i think will become seniors no you just think you're right you're richer well the deal with russia making the rich richer a good deal of even the new cold war made dollars for trading when russia then the other day in this remains a vote on trade agreements with shoes or the way the trade is wonderful i think energy is a whole different story and the energy is
11:04 am
a much different story than normal trade and you have a country like poland or accept the gas. you take a look at some of the countries there were said that because they don't want to be captive to russia by germany as far as i'm concerned it is captive to russia because it's going to be so much energy for right so listen most of the tax relief in getting their energy for i should explain that every three years. and james it seems very much as donald trump is there laying out his still listening so that's a really aggressive exchange with the n. sultan beds essentially general of nato later on in the day he's going to confront mrs merkel the chancellor of germany and we presume he'll also come face to face with the justin trudeau as well. who he had the run in with after the g. seven summit in canada yes these are going to be very difficult to counters as the
11:05 am
day goes on particularly with chancellor merkel who clearly was in his sights in that really unusual exchange with the nato secretary general remember of course that nato is one of the us is strongest allies there are u.s. troops in germany some thirty five thousand u.s. troops in germany so i suspect the germans are going to be deeply disappointed they know the position of president trump they know what he said on twitter but the fact he said it so publicly at the very start of two days here of diplomacy for nato nato in the next year is supposed to celebrate its seventieth anniversary it's lost it as long as the whole of the cold war expanding after the cold war because of the very very strong support throughout that time of the united states doesn't nato still have that support of the president it's interesting article five
11:06 am
of the north atlantic treaty which was the treaty that set up nato almost seventy years ago was signed in in washington d.c. that article is only actually been. used once which is all nato allies say that they will support any of the other allies if they come under attack and that was after nine eleven it was invoked after nine eleven all the nato allies saying a lot of attack on. u.s. was an attack on them well now you've got president trump saying we are supposed to protect germany they have to protect germany and if that article doesn't mean anything then nato doesn't mean anything absolutely and james it seems very much isn't it for president of the everything comes down to a matter of business and cost even when it comes to defense spending so i'm one of the key complaints that he has is the father he contends that the u.s. is pain far too much and there are those countries among the twenty eight other
11:07 am
countries that are not pulling their weight they're not spending what they should so let's have a look at some of the numbers challis now in twenty fourteen nato members agreed to stop cutting their military budgets and world will spending two percent of their g.d.p. on defense by the year twenty twenty four it wasn't there for a direct contribution to nato nor was it meant to be a payment that goes to america so mr trump is right that most of nato has twenty nine members are spending less than two percent and those falling short of the target include the richer countries like france germany and canada overall members contribute to natives budget based on the size of their economies america obviously having the biggest economy pays the most they pay just over twenty two percent germany france britain and italy together they pay over forty
11:08 am
percent forty four percent is what they pay and so james in some ways he has a point doesn't he because there are all those countries wealthy countries like canada and and germany his two favorites who are not spending two percent of their g.d.p. on defense. he absolutely has a point. make the make the point that knowledge this and that's why. why they've made this commitment of the nato allies to increase defense spending it was made at the nato summit that took place in south wales four years ago the plan is over a ten year period so we're not even halfway through it yet for the nato allies to get to that two percent threshold but the secretary general stoltenberg says that there has in the start of this period already been quite a significant increase in defense spending so nato would make the point the alliance would make the point that already this is being rectified all right for
11:09 am
now james thank you very much indeed we'll be checking in with james space at diplomatic editor throughout the day as this rather testy affair continues in brussels. now at least three people have been killed by gunmen who stormed a government office in afghanistan it happened in the eastern city of jalalabad a gun battle is still ongoing with afghan special forces armed men entered the office of the education department and set off explosives. there china says it stands on the right side of history in defending multilateralism is it warned it would retaliate against any further u.s. terrorists on wednesday washington and out the possible ten percent charge on two hundred billion dollars worth of goods from china beijing called the move on except to poland warned it would be forced to impose countermeasures if the u.s. goes ahead with the terrorists. when adrian brown is our correspondent in beijing
11:10 am
he's joining us live now and this tit for tat round of tyrus is continuing started by the u.s. but this does seem to be a significant escalation adrian. yes a significant escalation martine in the language at least from the chinese side is getting much stronger words like shocked unacceptable accusing the united states of escalating and excel aerating the trade war between china and the united states a morning also that this dispute could have a lasting impact on sino u.s. trade relations now what the united states did on wednesday was to publish a list of potential targets potential terrorists on a whole range of chinese goods and it click tick range everything from dog food to macro all and they'll be a two month consultation period before those tariffs come into effect if they come
11:11 am
into effect of course is still possible unlikely there could be a breakthrough in the next two months or so and that in a sense was the u.s. response to beijing's retaliation over earlier u.s. levies we are at the moment martin sort of trapped in a downward tit for tat spiral there seems to be no way out both sides are kind of boxed into a corner and we've seen the markets in asia today reacting to that that the sentiment in the markets is could all this soon have an opinion packed on economic growth on inflation the hang seng index in hong kong dropping about two percent on trading on wednesday morning the nikkei index in tokyo dropping around about one percent and i guess the worry years that those falls could grow in the weeks and months ahead at the moment as i say there seems to be no way out of this protracted
11:12 am
complex trade rael we know that you know president donald trump is still insisting that the u.s. action is justified because he says the u.s. worker has had a bad deal because of unfair chinese trading practices practices that often involve he says you know u.s. farms being strong armed. into handing over their technology as a condition for doing business in this country you know in the mean time i think china is looking for all sorts of ways to try to insulate itself from further impacts we're seeing it trying to strengthen relationships with countries like germany the the chinese premier has been in germany this week talking up the prospect of more trade deals as a big easy you china summit here next week and china martin also has a number of potential insurance policy and that's its big one belt one road trade initiative which is president xi jinping key economic policy he hopes that and
11:13 am
other ways will help china maintain its economic growth which of course is so important because growth has been starting to slow down a bit adrian brown thank you very much indeed. we've got a lot more to come in here at al-jazeera including we just had a verdict in the murder trial of a neo nazi in germany find out what it is we'll go live to munich. the riots may be a very hazy but the anger remains protests is a calling for the resignation of the president. told. me the weather sponsored by cateye oas hello and welcome back we still have an area of low pressure circulating around germany at the moment with the front extending further towards the south so risk of some
11:14 am
pretty heavy showers associated with that and also a little low pressure system across the iberian peninsula giving some really intense storms across parts of portugal probably drifting further in across spain during the course of them wednesday and then across much of the u.k. down through france where the conditions still looking reasonable risk of one or two showers but generally still fairly warm and getting warmer best the weather across southeastern parts here where it is largely dry cleaner's move the for counseling still see that low pressure system sitting across germany at the same time temperatures coming back up twenty seven degrees across london but some parts the u.k. seen some heavy showers on the other side the mediterranean fine weather conditions that breeze off the maid keeping temperatures at thirty six for cairo for central parts of africa the interesting thing is how the showers are no moving further north into parts of sudan through chattanooga and towards mali but make homemade and pick up the old shower on the wall otherwise lagos in nigeria akron ghana highs of twenty in the risk of showers cool so be some showers for cape town with
11:15 am
temperatures dropping as sixteen degrees celsius and respecting some resorts temperatures over in johannesburg. the weather sponsored by cattle i always say. where were you when this idea popped into it when they're online it's undoubtedly chief cool. of opinion equality in our society today or if you join us on sat criminal justice system is dysfunctional right now this is a dialogue what does it feel like bring you to go back for the first time everyone has a voice and allow refugees to be the speakers for change join michael o'boyle conversation on out his iraq.
11:16 am
is a busy news day here at al-jazeera let's have a look at the top stories president trump has lambasted his nato allies for their trade relations with russia in a heated exchange with nato secretary general yen stoltenberg mr trump said it was unfair that europe relied on the u.s. for defense but bolster its energy from russia. china says it stands on the right side of history in defending multilateralism as it warned it would retaliate against any further u.s. tariffs washington has announced a possible ten percent charge on an extra two hundred billion dollars worth of goods from china beijing called the move on acceptable. the world health organization says yemen's falsity of her data has now registered the highest number of color of cases in the country about fourteen percent of cases came from the city where a saudi amorality coalition is backing the government against two three rebels. a

11:18 am
a consequence she's been as you say sent to prison for life now the point is that will be an entire life sentence because the details of the campaign of violence to the national socialist underground perpetrations in the u.s. basically the first decade of this century were pretty intense the fact that they carried out ten different murders over the course of nearly seven years and the fact that it then took your forty's another four years to track them down bearing in mind that these are individuals or these in most cases were individuals who the police have been aware of in so far as the far right extreme elements of the far right have been concerned in this country let's be clear about this that they are to shape or effectively said that she wished she could have prevented the murders of the ten individuals that she disassociated himself from the national socialist on the ground but the judges here in this court clearly did not believe that they had gone through many many many pages of evidence in this case and it delivered
11:19 am

11:24 am
a recognition of the priority it's now giving to this and a cleanup is underway in the haitian capital after days of protests against fuel price rises they've since been shelved but as gabriel elizondo reports from port au prince demands for president juvenile monies to resign continuing. activity at first glance it appears like just another regular day at haiti's capital city. but don't be fooled this is a country again dealing with the political and economic crisis port au prince has in recent days but the scene of large scale protests thousands took to the streets . at one point officials temporarily closed the capital's international airport fearing the crowds the anger was directed at the government police used tear gas to disperse people apparently threatening to overrun the presidential palace several people were killed during the melee. the unrest was sparked by the government's decision to increase fuel prices by up to fifty percent the increases cover
11:25 am
gasoline diesel and kerosene sales however it's kerosene which stands apart from the others being the cheap fuel of choice for the millions of poor haitians to power their stoves and generators people of this economically of poverty country most of whom make less than a couple dollars a day are furious at what they view as an inept and corrupt government the fuel hike was the last straw down the bucket we are taking to the streets because the president is keeping the people hostage everything is overpriced unemployment is high and people are hungry we need to free haiti from all of. that isn't it if the president doesn't step down we'll continue protesting we've given lawmakers an ultimatum either they force him from office or we will burn the parliament down to the ground. the government says the gasoline rate increase was needed and it would have brought in tens of millions of dollars to fund much needed infrastructure
11:26 am
projects throughout the country but faced with a backlash the government backed down and halted the rate increase at least for now but this is still a country in deep political crisis people here saying they'll go back on the streets to protest until there's a change in government georges lucien is a historian and political analyst who says these protests are different from the ones in the past because now the anger is focused not only on the political leaders but also at the business leaders as well. these policies not only affect the poor but also the middle class until the government starts working to improve people's lives there's no guarantee the recent unrest won't return so far all the government policies are pushing people out of their lands they are building sweatshops in other industries for imports but ignoring local production. a proposed fuel price hike. is now to fuel inflaming the end of
