8:02 am
kept the focus on his economic goals he once told me that decision came following the death of former u.s. president george h.w. bush who passed away in his houston home during the summit we wanted to have a press conference with respect for president bush we. canceled it here and we'll have a chat. washington your future sometime after the funeral here but the cancellation also allowed trump to avoid uncomfortable questions about disparaging remarks he'd made particularly on the twenty sixteen campaign trail about the bush family trump have been eager to tout his perceived success of the summit including the signing of a new north american free trade agreement a campaign promise reaching a trade agreement between the world's two largest economies the united states and china also looks hopeful it will probably going to end up getting something that

8:04 am
world trade organization and its need for reform can really help at al-jazeera when a sari's the white house says that's amazing with china highly successful after both sides agreed to hold off on new trade tariffs adrian brown has more reaction from beijing. well the governments of both china and the united states are putting a positive spin on the outcome of these talks but this is not a deal it is a truce a temporary cease fire because the white house is still warning that if after the ninety day period there is still no agreement between china and the united states on their many trade issues then the united states will impose tariffs on two hundred billion dollars worth of chinese goods that's on top of terrorists that already apply to two hundred fifty billion dollars worth of chinese goods now the chinese foreign minister wang ye has says that he hopes it can be more exchanges and visits between the two sides just before the talks president xi jinping said he
8:05 am
was very happy to be meeting president donald trump and the best option for china and the united states was cooperation but there remains a fundamental areas of disagreement between these two sides especially in the area of force technology transfer and the fact that the united states says that u.s. companies that want to do business here in china have to enter into fifty fifty joint venture arrangements and then hand over their know how the united states is saying that has to stop there is one area though i think where president xi jinping is unlikely to yield and that concerns his industrial policy known as made in china twenty twenty five this is his aim to make china a world leader in technologies of the future things like artificial intelligence and robotics but the united states is saying that china will do this by heavily subsidizing the companies involved and it says that has to stop president xi

jinping has maintained that it won't. well the matter of saudi journalist america shocked she has overshadowed much of the g twenty summit saudi crown prince mohammed bin appeared isolated early on as speculation mounts about his alleged involvement in the killing us as alan fischer reports day two of the g twenty was quite different. the saudi crown prince has had a busy day too at the g twenty one on one with the argentinean 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 at 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 first denied it and then tried to distort facts and finally admitted to this murder
8:07 am
turkey has adopted a very determined attitude which is help disclosed 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 motto 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 to show. 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 at a port in a u.s. newspaper the wall street journal claims to seen details of eleven messages the
8:08 am
saudi royal sent his closest adviser who oversaw the so-called hit team. the newspaper says this led the cia 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. at the g twenty. well following the g twenty trump announced he will dismantle
8:09 am
gnashed within six months you see a new man has more from when his aires apart from presumably having to being hopeful that there will be some breakthrough in these talks with china he has 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 and we're not just on friday the president says that if congress doesn't approve a new revised version then we 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 is very curious is that president credit 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 and in fact he warned that for canada this wasn't over they were going to keep negotiating quote

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 sound man 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 no nor state you her own citizens are in a state for foreign investigation so the issue here is this really think it's so different. than will come to an end in turkey but you should make this issue to international level because the nation the investigation. will be a dead end that is the only way this case can be investigated fairly and openly but turkey's government mindful of the situation regarding human rights and treatment
8:19 am
of some of its own citizens is reluctant to call for un investigation and western governments seemed 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 marcus short 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 that by and watched i'm done nothing tony burke the al-jazeera istanbul. german chancellor angela merkel and russian president vladimir putin also met on the sidelines of the g. twenty summit and agreed to 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 ad defense system being deployed on the peninsula crimea as an expired
