it's a big business boggling sample and they will take this there in the sand is our parent you see this beautiful beach but behind it is something that's not so pleasant the tragedy is that people are just not aware and ecological investigation into a global emergency sound walls on al-jazeera. signs of progress in a trade dispute between the u.s. and china as they agree to stop escalating the war of the terrorists and as the g twenty summit wraps up turkey's president tries to keep pressure on saudi arabia over the matter of journalist jamal khashoggi. hello i'm the star and this is al jazeera live from doha also coming up french
7:01 am
president emanuel macron leaves the g twenty to face the aftermath of violent protests in his country and mexico's new president promises to end centuries of poverty and marginalization among indigenous people after being sworn into office. the u.s. and china have agreed to hold off on new trade tariffs on each other after a working dinner between donald trump and she jinping on the sidelines of the g. twenty summit chinese media say the two presidents decided not to impose tariffs after january first when the u.s. was planning another two hundred billion dollars worth of levies the white house has called it a highly successful meeting shortly will speak to adrian brown and beijing but first lucy and human joins us from one is aries you say this was a contentious g. twenty that was very much overshadowed by the. tensions between russia and ukraine but now it also seems like there were productive talks between donald trump and she
7:02 am
didn't bring. well no stars it depends how you look at it president donald trump in a statement that was issued by the white house called it amazing but in actual fact when you look at the small print it's really the announcement of a norm of a moratorium of a pause in the plans to escalate the trade dispute between the world's two largest economies essentially what it does is it gives both countries ninety days to come to some kind of an agreement on the core dispute which president donald trump calls china's a quote predatory trade practices he wants china to stop what he calls stealing intellectual property rights and stealing cyber intelligence and carrying out cyber attacks. also dumping these are all the charges are just part of the charges that are laid against china by the united states this is negotiation would take
7:03 am
ninety days and if there is no breakthrough then the white house would go ahead with raising these terrorists from ten percent the ones that were slapped down already from ten percent to twenty five percent against china which of course would send more tremors through world markets and so there you have it they have to keep talking it's a kind of a pause or a truce that will last only for ninety days and you see i believe in just the last hour president trump has been commenting on air force one about nafta. yes he has apart from presumably having to being hopeful that there will be some breakthrough in these talks with china he is also has announced that he is going to tell congress that he will very soon be completely ending the nafta agreement with mexico and canada remember that that agreement was revised and it was signed here in one site is just on friday the president says that if congress doesn't approve
7:04 am
the new revised version then it can go back to the prison after days that's back to one thousand nine hundred four when there was no free trade agreement with the three north american neighbors and what was very curious is that president trump said that for him that was a good deal too. in other words he was sort of indicating that for him either way is fine when president rather when prime minister justin trudeau signed it here i'm going to cite is the new deal on friday he did not look happy at all in a style and in fact he warned that for canada this wasn't over they were going to keep negotiating quote the rights of the canadian workers thanks very much for that update you see there you see a new man in buenos aires now is adrian brown in beijing adrian we're looking at a slowing economy in china and not very much wiggle room when it comes to a trade war what reaction so far out of beijing. well in the star's year as you might predict the chinese government is putting a pretty positive spin on this as of the ties we've got
7:05 am
a short lived partial agreement to a cease fire this is what many people had expected china's foreign minister one year has said that he hopes the canal be more engagements and talks in the future president xi jinping just before these talks had said that it was very good to be meeting president donald trump again he said he was very happy about this and that cooperation was always the best option but let's remember there are so many fundamental areas of disagreement between china and the united states and they remain these talks have been about tariffs what we haven't heard so far are talks about the wider trade issues the fact that u.s. companies that set up in china have to enter into fifty fifty joint venture agreements and also hand over their their know how their intellectual property the united states says that absolutely has to stop and there's also the issue of forced technology transfers the list in many ways is endless and that's before you get to
7:06 am
north korea taiwan the south china sea dispute and of course human rights so whether all that can be sorted out of course in ninety days remains to be seen that is unlikely this is though a very important time for sign u.s. relations because on january the first just over a month from now it will be exactly forty years since china and the united states a stablished for diplomatic relations and a man who played a key role in that is the late president george bush sr who passed away this week and that's certainly been reflected in the coverage here this weekend adrian we've been hearing about this ninety day moratorium or truce essentially and what happens if there's no agreement on these trade issues after ninety days and what consequences are we likely to see for china. well what happens is that the united states will employ impose tariffs on two hundred
7:07 am
billion dollars worth of chinese goods raising the tariff from ten to twenty five percent and president trump of course has reiterated you know again today that that will happen unless there is a deal of course china's economy as you pointed out is slowing but we have to remember that china has vast financial reserves it has very deep pockets and a said often in the past that it can insulate not just its industries its factories its companies but also ordinary chinese people but there's no doubt that you know president xi jinping needs a breakthrough because the stock market here in china is just about the worst performing index in the world right now and i guess the hope will be amongst chinese leaders that will see a bit of lift in the shanghai index on monday as indeed in hong kong and other important indexes here in the asia pacific region adrian brown there in beijing thanks so much for that adrian jane garvey is the acting director of the australian
7:08 am
center on china in the wild at the australian national university she says the u.s. and china's trade issues are part of a larger debates. as china rises all we say now has risen to become the second largest economy in the world the u.s. has a choice does it share the global sort of strategic space with china does it trying contain it and really the trade war has looked like a serious effort to contain to the detriment of pretty much everyone in the global economy. said the question now is whether or not a deescalation of the trade will can give china the space in the united states the space to try and share that global technological front here i don't think there are many people in the united states who are in europe for that matter who are particularly comfortable with that idea there's almost a kind of righteous ownership of the global technological front that is belongs to
7:09 am
the west for so long and china rising up to challenge that has been really difficult a difficult pill to swallow whether or not they can learn to share that strategic space in the future remains to be saying. the murder of saudi journalist jamal khashoggi has overshadowed much of the g twenty summit saudi crown prince mohammed bin simon appeared isolated early on as speculation mounts about his alleged involvement in the killing but as alan fischer reports day two of the summit was quite different. the saudi crown prince has had a busy day too at the g twenty one on one with the argentinian president and there was an extended meeting with president putin of russia the man who gave him a high five on friday. turkey's president of the one revealed the case of jamal khashoggi it was raised only once in meetings with all the leaders and it was by the canadians he said the saudi crown prince gave what he described as an unbelievable response i asked him what he meant. did. the saudi regime
7:10 am
first denied it and then tried to distort facts and finally admitted to this murder turkey has adopted a very determined attitude which is help disclose the so sure we have never seen this as a political issue and shall never do so for us this incident was a horrendous act of murder and shall remain so the canadian prime minister said he also raised the model when he came face to face with the saudi royal i also. spoke directly to the crown prince to highlight our concerns and our need for better answers on the killing of khashoggi and also the need for an immediate ceasefire and humanitarian aid to go to yemen which is the largest humanitarian catastrophe going on in the world right now and is a subject that we brought up repeatedly in various conversations as the pressure grows in the u.s. to take firm action against saudi arabia a report in the u.s.
7:11 am
newspaper the wall street journal claims to seen details of eleven messages the saudi royal said his closest adviser who oversaw the so-called hit team in istanbul . the newspaper says this led the cia the america's intelligence agency to conclude mohammed bin someone likely ordered the murder but america's secretary of state says they still stand by the crown prince i have read every piece of intelligence that is in the possession of the united states government and when it is done when you complete that analysis there is no direct evidence linking him to the murder of jamal khashoggi the saudi crown prince was never going to be ignored or shunned by the gathering of the world's twenty largest economies there are diplomatic niceties to be observed the real test will be in weeks to come as countries reexamine their relationship with saudi arabia and the man who is effectively in charge alan

7:13 am
the arab spring and now we are getting their european winter. as the day drew on the violence in the surrounding avenues so police vehicles and cars being tortured and even buildings set alight it was meant to have been a peaceful protest a small minority carried out the attacks the rest were demanding the resignation of president macro a yellow test it. will continue not on into the night but into next week once again could actually become a real threat politically to president might cause administration from a platform in argentina though he had a defiant message for them open goes no calls just defies that security forces that attack shops overcome private buildings settle fire but s three s are journalists threatened or that the end of the trail sally at. the protests were even will

7:16 am
a long way north. the with the sponsored boycotts on use. there's nowhere to hide isn't the easiest way to solve this time low un observers who you invited into the country earlier this year to finish the job i haven't said it's a right wing conspiracy or anybody's conspiracy. do you think we're going to see some kind of sea change in the u.s. relationship with saudi arabia we have an obligation there is a journalistic integrity and then to that in various cases it was betrayed told only up from. zero.
7:17 am
welcome back i'm the star and a reminder of our top stories this hour the u.s. and china have agreed to deescalate their trade war president donald trump and china's xi jinping met after the g. twenty summit and it is canceling his plan to raise new tariffs on china on january first that existing taxes on chinese goods will stay in place as the two countries negotiate. leaders at the g. twenty manage to reach an agreement and were able to find some common ground the communique addressed issues like the future of labor empowering women and infrastructure but also divisive topics like climate change. and turkey's president used his platform at the g twenty summit to once again focus the spotlight on the matter of saudi journalist jamal khashoggi. criticized saudi arabia's investigation into the killing and insisted the kingdom extradite all suspects to tacky. as details continue to emerge two months after jamal khashoggi
7:18 am
a family and friends of the journalist continue their battle for justice tony betty takes a look back at the murder investigation and the shifting narratives of what happened on october second. these days they keep a part van in front of the entrance to the saudi consulate in istanbul to stop prying eyes for the last eight weeks saudi arabia has been unable to stop the world from knowing what happened inside this building on october the second despite the saudi lies and deception the planning and intent family and friends are determined on bringing the man who gave the order for jamal khashoggi murder to justice the fight for justice for cheese continuing and to continue of course at the end until. everybody will be satisfied that justice and now i am ready for it very fortunately now the problem the issue is ensuring intonation sure it's an it's a university sure now the saudis say five an amen part of the fifty man so-called
7:19 am
hit squad are facing the death penalty in saudi arabia for the murder six others a charge with related offenses although western intelligence agencies believe all the evidence circumstantial and otherwise points to the saudi crown prince mohammed bin salman as the architect of the killing some diplomats believe he has got away with it was executing five. people who were. killed. in a small circle while they have done and the other. seven or a six remaining six there will be most for religion and they will close the case turkey and the rest of the world is shocked by the barbarity of the murder president recep tayyip erdogan and turkey's government has leaked details of audio recordings from inside the consulate before joining and after the killing
7:20 am
investigators revealed phone calls made to riyadh with one of the hit squad saying tell the boss the deed is done without stating his name the turks have made it obvious. the boss is mohammed bin solomon but turkey's options are limited by a lack of saudi cooperation and a lack of will from the international community the saudis are using the vienna convention on diplomatic immunity is as reasons not to hand over the suspects to turkey. nor state you her own citizens are in a state for foreign investigation so the issue here is is this really think so different. mr gibson will come to turkey you should make bring this issue to international level because the mission the investigation. will be a date and that is the only way this case can be investigated fairly and openly but
7:21 am
turkey's government mindful of its situation regarding human rights and treatment of some of its own citizens is reluctant to call for a u.n. investigation and western governments seem disinterested as could be seen at the g twenty summit in argentina some politicians have short memories and forgiving natures when it comes to trade deals it now seems likely that the real culprit behind this crime is going to get away with it and that the murder of your market shortly will become a paragraph in history in a bloody region and that's a sad indictment not only of saudi arabia but also of the international community which is good boy and watched and done nothing tony burke the al-jazeera. german chancellor angela merkel and russian president vladimir putin also met on the sidelines of the g twenty summit and agreed to a four way talks with the leaders of france and ukraine on the current flare up of tension around crimea moscow has released pictures of its s. four hundred air defense system being deployed on the peninsula crimea was annexed

7:24 am
going to do that primarily by leading from the front by his personal example critics of his would say that's not enough of a plan really and he needs to he needs to really expand on that and how he's going to use it to show you also said that he had the security plan and that security plan came as quite a surprise. for many people in mexico it involves merging the federal police with the army of the maybe under the control of the armed forces especially human rights groups say that that could be a problem the armed forces are already being used on the ground in mexico that have really been accused of various different human rights abuses but apart from those the details of his president say this is quite a historic day in mexico it's a person left this president for more than three decades in the country and he says that he's going to be changing the country's direction from pursuing free trade policies and privatization to going towards social programs public sector
7:25 am
workers and as we mentioned trying to lower corruption a make sure that that means more money is available for those social programs he says is not going to raise taxes but he's promised a lot now we've got six years in which he was trying to carry out those promises. negotiators from two hundred countries a gathering in poland for the latest global conference on climate change they hope to agree on details of the paris climate deal that was made and twenty fifteen a lot has changed since then especially after president trump decided to pull the u.s. out of the agreement and since then the wilds continue to experience a sequence of extraordinary weather events. thousands of scientists politicians and leaders of industry meet in poland for perhaps the most important climate conference there's ever been the challenge to unite on how to implement the peris
7:26 am
agreement of two thousand and fifteen which aims to shift the world away from fossil fuels and to limit the rise in global temperatures to between one and a half degrees celsius and two degrees celsius that agreement is jus to come into force in less than two years time in twenty twenty but a report from the united nations shows that the world is completely off track heading instead towards three degrees celsius and that is twice the recommended rate of warming and as this year has proven time is on no one side. you know well currently one degree celsius warmer than pre-industrial times the fingerprints of climate change and it's human impact becoming increasingly apparent. and not just in the developing world. the worst wildfires in california history last month led to multiple deaths and extraordinary destruction they had. demonic plans is the only way i can put it it's like our eyes are gone you know our lives everything we have is gone now more and bigger wildfires are predicted around the world as
