4:06 pm
concerned so as far as the government is concerned it is coming out tough language but the big question here is how far are both countries reeling to take this any escalation we're snowball into a bigger conflict that is their fear and right now all eyes are on the line of control also known as the line of their white with separate. army. live images offer about thank you very much for that well as the parliament of i think pakistan talk about the developments in indian administered kashmir a reminder of what that lore is the law that granted significant to talk to me to the disputed region article 370 is now repealed and it allowed indian administered kashmir to make its own laws except him finance defense foreign affairs and communications and it means that the residents of the state lived under different laws from the rest of the country masses including property in a ship and citizenship and as we've already mentioned the state is now being split
4:07 pm
indian administered kashmir which includes hindu majority will be directly run from new delhi but will have a local assembly dock which is largely made up of buddhists and shia muslims will be a union territory as well but it won't have its own assembly. now people living in indian administered kashmir have been reacting to the military crackdown some say basic necessities are hard to find. me at this time my wife does not have medicine i am compelled to get medicine but there are no medical facilities this keeps on happening but there should be some facilities for people if they are not well where will they go. at least they should have informed as if they wanted us to implement any rules or regulations at least they should have thought about if we could arrange necessities and commodities this is not
4:08 pm
india that i believe. is a democratic india. or india. whatever your religion or your region. right now we can see today. who is an advocate with the russian. song nationalists organization is then as the r.s.s. which is closely allied to the ruling b j p joining us live now from the indian capital new delhi thank you very much indeed for talking to us this decision to revoke article 370 i understand you support wholeheartedly and yet it is being decried by so many sections as being illegal unconstitutional and is likely to face several legal challenges. let us be very clear that this is not a part of the government is an independent social organization world's largest social organization that has to be kept in mind one thing yes we support the
4:09 pm
question of partial to 70 and the bifurcation of the state of jammu and kashmir to say that it is illegal unconstitutional and invalid i don't agree with it the reason being busy if one beats the language of 370 it is very clear that it was transitional and into. the moment when you see these 3 words which clearly means it was only for the purposes of interim government the prominent government was established actually so this. was supposed to go automatically the moment the prominent government was stopped. it was only for the transitional forces and therefore it was it was illegally continued for a very very long time bank pollak ok that's an interpretation i haven't heard before but if it is if it was just a transitional arrangement and it and it is and it is right and valid that it is
4:10 pm
now taken off the constitution constitutional books why has it been accompanied with a vast number of extra soldiers we think tens of thousands perhaps why is there a lockdown in terms of the internet in terms of the telephone service and why are local political leaders being held under house arrest. but if you look at the history of. german catch me what happened was there were few political families dynasty families would ruling and the and it was in their interest that they never wanted to feel them across it to be stopped and so whatever huge amount of money was going from the central government to the state government was you know taken away and they were not reaching the people so it would it is in their interests to foment trouble them create law and order problem and hence it's a precautionary step that will stick and and you you will also recall the role played by pakistan in cross border terrorism which has really troubled india for
4:11 pm
a very very long time and we were also expecting that the pakistan will again because of these this particular step will try to forment trouble to cross border infiltration a few days back about 7 people of the border action team which is one of the. busy border agency was trying to cross over india and they were killed and they have even written right vehicle leg of these of their soldiers i mean you make this is the state of affairs at the border this is because the step. you mention the critical word democracy wouldn't it have been more democratic to have taken the views of the people of indian administered kashmir before the government acted. you know people are presuming that the consultative process is not taken place it has taken place and it was told in parliament by the home minister a mature that they had done by district conservative since last 2 years they in
4:12 pm
fact off to the local body is also the local elections have taken place where 75 percent of the people wanted and their heads of the local bodies were consulted the widest conservation was done by the central government through interlocutor which was appointed 2 years ago and therefore to see that the consultation process has not taken place is a wrong statement right so why is it then that people are considering this move by the government as being part of an anti muslim campaign which has been carried out in propagated by the b j p government and now mr modi in his 2nd term and it must be said your organization the r.s.s. which is considered to be a hindu nationalist organization that will not stand for minorities being in india . as a starter in do nationals of my vision it's a nationalist organization whose members are cutting across all religions that
4:13 pm
character has to be maintained secondly india is a secular country there is nothing called busy muslim majority or hindu majority everybody's supposed to live together everybody has the constitutional rights and such mean if you recall about 56 lakh hindus look through no overnight in 1990 and there is still waiting to be have located the biggest party that was committed in kashmir was an 198990 and then they are also demanding their rights this is one way of you know sending them back home their lying in various camps all over india in general in delhi in very protected condition their properties have been illegally taken over and sold by many people so that this will be stored the balance the secular fabric of the country but the accusation is of course that those people in the indian administered kashmir have long felt marginalized and neglected and that this movie is going to add to their their grievances.
4:14 pm
you know if you look at what the 70 gave to crush me was not the special status it prevented you know the industries from buying land and setting up industries various laws like marriage probably bishan laws are not applicable child marriage just take place there is a woman discrimination if if a medieval when met he's somebody from outside she loses all her right property everything she has no in american. right then so there are a lot of discriminatory laws also right to education which is a fundamental right up because people all over india is not applicable in jammu and kashmir there are other laws like teachers training very you have to give good training to teachers doctors not applicable so you can skip. the endless talk as a backward country apart from the fact the central bureau of investigation which which is the premier investigating agency for you know investigating crimes and
4:15 pm
prosecuting crimes and got a cases of corruption there to destruction is also not there so we had vita spared you know corruption in jammu and kashmir the money sent by the government was pocketed by a few 3 or 4 quality good families huge packages were going but they were not reaching the ground so this will distort balance and ensure that the all round development takes place there. thank you very much indeed for talking to us. now moving on the arguments between the world's 2 largest economies are causing stock market volatility worldwide investors are concerned that china is allowing its currency to slide in using the yuan as a weapon in the trade war with the united states now on monday in the 1st move of its kind in 25 years the u.s. treasury designated china as a currency manipulator china's communist party newspaper responded by accusing the americans of deliberately destroying international order the u.s. announcement came just hours after beijing let its currency weaken the yuan has
4:16 pm
tumbled 2.3 percent in 3 days since president trance declaration that he will expand tiris to cover more chinese products from september and beijing says chinese companies have stopped buying u.s. agricultural products and all of that calls wall street to suffer its worst day of the year on monday although it's expected to claw back some of those losses on tuesday let's hear more now from scott scott hyla who's in beijing. the trade war between the united states and china has reached concerning new territory the u.s. treasury department for the 1st time since 1994 has labeled china as a currency manipulator this is because over the last couple of days the you on the chinese currency has gone up to over 7 per u.s. dollar now that's a territory a symbolic territory that hasn't crossed in quite some time that raise concern that also had knock on effect with markets around the world after that label was issued
4:17 pm
by the united states treasury department's pushback from the chinese government refuting that claim and also it seemed as though the chinese government on tuesday pump the brakes a little bit because offshore chair trading of the yuan went down below that symbolic 7 yuan per dollar mark so obviously a lot of back and forth this of course comes after we heard just at the beginning of the week president trump announcing a new round of tariffs on $300000000000.00 of chinese goods going to the united states now this is something you know there was a discussion last week in shanghai here in china negotiations between the 2 countries that really didn't go anywhere no real announcements until we heard at the beginning of this week and obviously a lot of firing back and forth now obviously this is very concerning territory in this trade war and also there's concern global markets were going down as a result of what we've been hearing there's greater concern what kind of knock on the effect it could have in global economy and some very strong words coming from beijing responding to what president trump was saying they said this is very
4:18 pm
irresponsible this is the central government here in beijing irresponsible and they're holding the u.s. administration's holding america's families hostage during this trade we're obviously it's going to have a drag on the global economy that's something that china is underlining have to see what happens next but there's been some very strong tit for tat at the beginning of this week all right let's get the view from washington now his white house correspondent kimberly how kimberly said president chavez waken up and is putting on a brave face. yeah brave face tweeting as he often does early in the morning as we discuss this trade war that is now escalate into a currency war the us president is sort of portraying that this is not going to have the impact on the united states that many has made the argument it will take a look at what he had to say on twitter to tweets this is one of them massive amounts of money from china and other parts of the world pouring into the united states for reasons of safety investment interest rates we are in
4:19 pm
a very strong position companies are also coming to the u.s. in big numbers a beautiful thing to watch i'm not sure many people thought when the stock market started to tumble that it was a beautiful thing to watch i think a lot of people are pretty nervous others that are also nervous usually nervous or american farmers because of course it all of this this escalation american farmers have already been hit hard by the fact that china is no longer buying a lot of their agricultural products and the president seems aware of that because in his 2nd tweet he talks about the american farmers knowing that china will not be able to hurt them in that their president who has stood with them he'll do it again next year if necessary kind of paraphrasing what he had to say there are essentially what he's saying is he's already had to bail them out twice with 2 different government aid packages he's prepared to do it again in all of this what the president has that he can stand on as he tries to run for reelection martín is the strong economy but now that looks like it could be in peril what many people are talking about are concerns about potential recession certainly this is
4:20 pm
a big political gamble for the president but also this is a big political or sort of financial risk for the global markets who are feeling very nervous as they watch these 2 worlds 2 largest economies in this major tit for tat that doesn't appear to have any quick resolution all right kimberly thank you for that kimberly how that white house correspondent. china says it'll take countermeasures if the united states goes ahead with plans to deploy intermediate range missiles in the asia pacific region washington withdrew from the cold war era into mediate range nuclear forces treaty the i n f that was just last week. we call on the u.s. to exercise restraint and i also want to make one point absolutely clear that. china will not stand idly by and we are forced to take countermeasures should the u.s. deploy into medium range ground based missiles in this part of the world still to

4:36 pm
rwanda side of the border and steph 1st of all tell us what these health ministers what kind of help and assistance to they need from the. well they're trying to figure out how best to move for their meeting in a conference room just behind us and they're trying to figure out how best to tackle this of course they need money but it's also about logistics martine we were at that border today and yesterday thousands of people cross this in close proximity and if you look at the jogger fee of the country of the of the cities sorry they are there side by side it's essentially the same city with a border that runs through it just a line so these are the challenges we've been speaking to officials and health workers and they will tell you they're very honest about it and it's very very difficult to contain when you have this kind of movement of people and just to give you a sense of what will that looks like this is a report from that border. everyone is on edge this
4:37 pm

4:38 pm
a few meters really right next door is the seine rwanda so this shows you just how close the 2 cities are and the problem is the mass movement of people thousands of people are crossing this border every day which is why i health workers will tell you it's a real challenge when it comes to checking people temperatures they have to wash their hands it's very difficult to contain. rwanda's tighten screening and security measures along its border it's a health workers nightmare i think you saw the traffic is. it's a huge number of people over 60. and that is this screening is not easy you so we have the numbers but they're not sufficient enough to do this we need. has managed by science we don't manage it by panic and so what you have to do is to ensure that we do the right thing at the right time protect our borders it get to the masses the population tell them you've heard about a good sikh what to do. doctors in the d.r.

4:41 pm
really is a venezuelan financial advisor he says the sanctions will affect everybody including countries doing business with venezuela. well i think this escalation. must be a reflection of the position that the united states had cut into and also the european union it is that in the norway mediated conversations that dial negotiations did not generate an outcome that would ratchet up sanctions so this by itself was already an indication that the agreement or that those conversations came to stalemate on the remaining on my little remaining bar before an election so there's an imprint barely even remember on the presidential election but not on what happens of either the between now and the presidential election. the white doll government wants model to exit immediately and have the
4:42 pm
