with iran of course it's limited to essential humanitarian goods so this is one of the ways around all of there isn't all that much confidence in it yet it's something that could possibly work but i think the other thing that must be stressed is that we have to have a degree of trust here and that trust has been dramatically broken with the u.s. withdrawal from the deal and so i think what mr micron is trying to do here is say look we want the deal to continue saying to the iranians we want it to continue and we want you to continue working within it so we need to make it better for you and we need to make things better for you to stop this incredibly harsh u.s. sanctions biting and so that's what they're trying to do find different ways of actually operating and getting some money and and really trying to alleviate the incredibly devastating economic sanctions and the impact that those sanctions are having on the iranian people in the event that they are able to come up with some sort of agreement some sort of understanding the president is able to present to
12:01 am
the g. 7 this weekend how do you think the u.s. is going to react. not particularly well to be honest i think the u.s. position is incredibly clear it's been explicit we know that donald trump has called this nuclear deal the worst deal of all time for for whatever reason be it self interest or or be at the thought that it didn't do enough to stop the iranian nuclear program or didn't do enough for u.s. interests we know that that's the u.s. position and i think it would be highly unlikely for trump and john bolton and others involved at the highest levels of the administration to actually soften their stance and so that means that the european powers to figure out a way of saving the deal without the u.s. being involved and figure out a way of allowing the iranian economy to prosper in the face of these crippling u.s. sanctions and that's where i think the united kingdom has a huge role to play here and we know that boris johnson has been playing sort of
12:02 am
both sides in essence but he's got a really big role to play if he's serious about saving the deal that the nuclear deal then he has to stand up and and side with the europeans of course he's trying to negotiate brakes at the same time so that might be easier said than done really good to get your opinion in this summit thank you very much indeed for your time. more ahead on the news hour including working to refugees react to u.n. evidence revealing genocidal intent by me and most military environmentalists raised concern of disaster after russia launches the world's 1st floating nuclear plant. to almost taste that. to this this level that kind of stuff may be a blast and former heavyweight champion tyson fury opens up about his mental health crisis that's coming up in sports.
12:03 am
you as president only trump is threatening further action against china after it announced a new tariffs on u.s. goods beijing says the increased duties will affect $75000000000.00 worth of goods it's in retaliation for washington's puns to impose measures and chinese imports late to this year but a whole cuts joining us now from washington d.c. i'm guessing that this response by china isn't really much of a surprise given. it's not much of a surprise but it has created quite a bit of fury in the reaction coming from the u.s. president just the last few moments the president is angry not just about the retaliatory tariffs by china but also because of the impact this could have on the u.s. economy one that's been very strong for the u.s. president really hinges on his reelection so there seems to be almost a personal reaction coming from the president so we've got these 2 stories
12:04 am
intertwined right now i'll try to break them down in part with respect to the president's tweets that is just half and he's furious he's pointing out that this trade war is something that he alone feels he has stood up to china with these tariffs in place trying to protect american intellectual property theft protect the united states from intellectual property theft at the. it states alleges china has been doing for some time so the president is venting if you will in the last few moments on twitter about that and then loops in sort of another part of the story and that is interest rates here domestically in the united states very frustrated that in the last few moments the the there has not been a drop in interest rates as the president was hoping and so he's intertwined these 2 stories in just the last few moments essentially saying in a very shocking tweet who is america's bigger enemy jay powell the head of the central bank or the federal reserve responsible for potentially dropping rates
12:05 am
which didn't happen or chairman she the leader of china so the president is furious right now and has just said in the last few moments he is going to give a response to both of these stories in the coming hours but of course we're going to be of course that response when it comes out kimberly but of course the u.s. and china are supposed to be holding trade talks i think only next month is there any indication that what's happening now might throw those talks into some sort of confusion. yet not just the china talks but we've got the g. 7 talks of course the president is set to leave the white house in the coming hours late this evening washington time we already know that the united states has put on the radar the sort of concerns about the true of the world's largest economies in this battle back and forth they'll be talking about that so there are those discussions going on of then yes the china trade talks where do those stand we know
12:06 am
that the united states in terms of the negotiators of china and the united states were having a telephone call to work out some of the details in anticipation of china coming to washington next month now a lot of that is in doubt given these latest sort of retaliatory tariffs that we should point out take a fact and mirror the exact same time table of the united states there's a lot of concern not only between these 2 nations but also around the world we expect that at the g 7 leaders sit down to discuss this is going to be a major point of concern because the ripple concern is sort of a broader global economic slowdown something that economists caution they are already starting to see things killing us billionaire a major conservative political donor david koch has died at age 79 together with his brother chose david koch was best known for a vaastu us political donation network that became known as the coach to pose for that's why you do each he held one culture industries one of the world's largest

12:09 am
saves on is how deep it would go into syrian territory about whether the turks and the americans would patrol together the americans would prefer to patrol alone turkey saying they're still having talks about form of the safe zone but no indication yet as to when it would put in place the turks are desperate for it to happen sooner rather than later fighting has been going on for decades in central nigeria fueled by ethnic and religious differences as well as the battle to secure a scarce land and resources thousands have been killed those who could escape hope to find safety in camps but as mohamed atta reports they're facing another terrifying threat. buggin accompany the city or is one of them doesn't think they're expensive bin with state in central judea its inhabitants are just a fraction 171000 displaced across the street by the violence between tribes in this battle. while the comp was supposed to be

12:14 am
a large number of children out of school especially girls this has an extremely serious the true mental effect on the country and that's that's another thing that perhaps strikes me as well that in a situation where you have education under threats where you have the livelihoods and the lives and futures of children parents are really extremely concerned about this and you understood you see when meeting with them with the families and with the children selves how important they feel that education is so so that is perhaps you know one of the main messages we'd like to we'd like to bring forth is the voices of these children that are being prevented from from receiving like the most basic of education we're not asking for much here and also the fact that they're there their parents in some cases are you know they're risking their lives the lives of their their children when they do try to send their kids to school still ahead on al-jazeera there's renewed focus on gaza after a violent week at the border with israel. holding hands in hong kong as protesters

a reminder of our top stories this hour brazil's president says he may send in the army to battle fires that are burning through the amazon forest world leaders are calling it an international crisis and they're demanding action french president emanuel mccomb wants urgent talks at this weekend's g. 7 summit. iran's foreign minister has hailed a positive talks with french president emanuel on salvaging the 2015 nuclear deal said both countries have made suggestions on how to move forward after the u.s. pulled out of the agreement last year. and u.s. president donald trump says he's ordering american companies to close chinese operations bats after beijing announced an increase tariffs on $75000000000.00

worth of u.s. troops. while thousands of palestinians in gaza are rallying after a tense week at the border with israel that follows at least 3 incidents of rocket fire and air strikes it's the 71st consecutive great march of return rally palestine's health ministry says israeli forces have killed at least 270 people since march 2830 fawcett's joining us live now from gaza how these protests have go of course have been regular and ongoing the ones that we're seeing today any different from the ones that have happened previously. well certainly bigger than what we've seen in recent weeks there was a call from the organizing committee for a bigger protest this week because it's also the 50th anniversary of an arson attack on the arts a mosque in jerusalem there was also a call earlier this week for there to be open clashes and confrontations with
12:20 am
israeli forces we haven't seen that apart from a few people trying to make it to the fence and a handful of in century balloons being sent across on the wind which is heading into israeli territory the reason that we haven't seen that is because there was a reversal from the committee which is very heavily influenced if not dominated by hamas which is in sight which is in charge of the situation here in the gaza strip because last night thursday night the qatari and boy mohammed a mighty came in had secured israeli approval for some 11000000 dollars worth of funding to be disbursed to the poorest people inside gaza and so after that at 3 o'clock in the morning there was a call for the protests while still to be large to be somewhat controlled and we did see a lot of security forces here trying to prevent people from getting too close to the fence we've heard that the most recent official toll we have this in live fire going on of live fire injuries was $27.00 but since we had that bigger resource
12:21 am
several more such injuries here at this location one of 5 up and down the border a hairy part of the backdrop or 2 all of this is that we're heading towards elections in israel in the next few weeks is there any concern that we're going to see an uptick in the intensity of the protests. well there certainly could be an uptick in the intensity of the protests there also concerns that there could be more general violence and instability given that the 2 situations that we have both here in gaza and politically in israel here in gaza. hamas is concerned that israel has not made good on what it understood to be its commitments after the most recent round of escalation just before the last election in april the easing or the the lessening of some of the israeli restrictions that had been promised hamas says has not borne fruit at least not to the extent that it wanted in terms of seeing more electricity coming in more jewel use items being
12:22 am
allowed in in terms of the economic restrictions that israel impose on imports here on the other side we have the israeli elections coming up on september the 17th that is often a time when pressure can be exerted and we have seen an uptick in both rocket fire and attempts by armed men to get through the fence in recent weeks not something that israel is blaming on palestinian islamic jihad one of the armed factions but it says it's up to hamas to control that area thanks very much indeed. let's go back to our top story the unfolding fires disaster in the amazon which is being labeled an international crisis we can now join our correspondent daniel porter vale in brazil's northwest daniel give us an indication of where you are exactly at the moment. well robot how she in the middle of nowhere i mean the state of her own dawn you know which is very much a front here state i'm standing in a bunch field this field is for sale it's not clear whether this land was burned
12:23 am
deliberately whether it was accidental or whether it was a natural phenomenon that is unlikely to be investigated as i say this is a frontage town the kind of people who come here they come here to the forest to cut to do cattle ranching to make money out of the timber industry and this is where president jive also not as word is law these people generally voted voted for him to become president at the beginning of this year he has said that the kind of crimes that kind of fires are being set illegally are unlikely to be investigated he sees the environmentalist indigenous community as an impediment to further development of this area which he says is right for development 70 percent of the state the state over on dawn you say 5 hours flying time from stop our little another 2 hours drive to get from port of a year to where we are now a long way from everywhere very difficult to police unlikely that any any crimes are likely to be investigated and that is partly the problem that has been raging
12:24 am
in and around this region the neighboring state of amazon as you can spot these from satellites satellites up in the sky but that doesn't really help the policing down on the ground so what goes on here is unlikely they're going to be aware of the international condemnation that you just mentioned about not going on about other people speaking about this they have to make a living they're here to try to develop this region and that is continuing with or without the flames and you know the president has been saying that he may send in the military to try to contain some of the fires perhaps a reaction to some of the international pressure but his policies are being blamed for being at least partly responsible for the fires being started in the 1st place who is the president's political future looking at the moment in brazil. well rove is very much playing to the people that elected him and i say it's regions like this where they did elect him he is mocking to some degree the international condemnation he's talking about
12:25 am
a plot against brazil he's accused the ngos environmental n.g.o.s of starting the fires saying that they were trying to undermine brazil's reputation in the world he said that was a feeling only speculation on his part he didn't have any evidence to back that up so he is aware obviously as government is aware of the international condemnation which is getting stronger the condemnation with him brazil there are marches going on today and on sunday in cities around the country but it must be said it is a long way from where the fires are raging people there are well aware of the environmental implications for what's going on this is the region where people are making money they've come here to develop the region they're far less likely to be listening to be taking heed of that internet international condemnation done is wrong the reporting to us from some parts of thank you very much indeed japan's prime minister shinzo abi says south korea's decision to stop sharing military intelligence will damage trust between the 2 countries south korea made

the move on after japan downgraded its trade status been embroiled in an increasingly bitter dispute over wartime labor robin wright reports from seoul south korea says it had been hoping until the last minute to avoid pulling out of the pact blaming japan for what's now become the most serious deterioration in relations in decades young japan created a green change in bilateral security cooperation we have determined it would not serve our national interest to maintain an agreement to exchange sensitive military information. the intelligence sharing agreement was set up 3 years ago to counter the nuclear and missile threats from north korea its breakdown comes at a time of increased missile testing by pyongyang what anymore because the south korean decision completely misjudges the current regional security environment it's nothing but a disappointment and i find it extremely regrettable disappointment to from u.s.
12:27 am
secretary of state mike pompei o who's called for the 2 u.s. allies to settle their differences relations have soured just as regional rivals china and russia seem to be moving closer together militarily this dispute began with a south korean court ruling in favor of victims of forced labor used by japanese firms during the 2nd world war japan retaliated with the restrictions on the export of materials and components needed by south korea's high tech manufacturers. south korea then responded with a campaign to boycott all japanese goods and cancel holidays there. it's now started another campaign to support south korean firms hurt by this dispute this company making and freshness had spent 3 years trying to break into the japanese
12:28 am
market and was all set with 3 major orders which have all now been canceled i think . as citizens we need to support our government's policy given the current mood with japan will need to find an alternative solution for now exports to chip pan are difficult. this deepening trade dispute comes at a tough time for south korean exports is already caught in the middle of the trade war between the us and china trade figures show exports this month are down more than 13 percent compared to the same time last year extending a slump that's gone on now for more than 8 months many here fear the next move by either side in this continuing tape for tat will only be further deterioration robert bright al-jazeera sold. on protesters are forming a human chain across the territory the so-called hong kong way is inspired by the same tactic used in the baltic states in 1909 calling for independence from the

12:30 am
leader of the workers unions had been dismissed and even the c.e.o. was forced to resign from the corporation and this is how would a corporation facing a bully by the chinese government and i urge not only corporations in hong kong but also globally to think one thing is that are you standing for this or are you standing up against these kinds of beliefs i think it is a time to make decisions hong kong's economy is hosting the actions by your group and others like you are contributing to that or are you satisfied now that you have succeeded in one of your primary goals which is to basically ripped the hong kong economy well i believe. the only thing that is hurting hong kong economy generally and also including a tourist industry is starts people from around the world do not think hong kong is

donald trump tells us companies to get out of china after beijing announces new tariffs on american goods. i know i'm not matheson and this is a live from doha also coming up a global crisis of record breaking fires burning through brazil's amazon forest
12:49 am
problem calls for urgent action from world leaders. iran's foreign minister says nuclear talks with the french president have been productive. and the last chance to save the northern flight line owners from being lost busy forever. donald trump's telling us companies they should get out of china after beijing announced her out of hikes on $75000000000.00 worth of american goods and to deepen the trade war between the world's 2 biggest economies the us president fired off a volley of tweets here's some of what he posted our country has lost stupidly trillions of dollars with china over many years they've stolen our intellectual property at a rate of hundreds of billions of dollars a year and they want to continue i won't let that happen we don't need china and frankly would be far better off without them the vast amounts of money made and
12:50 am
stolen by china from the united states year after year for decades well and must stop great american companies are hereby ordered to email at least start looking for an alternative to china when he added that he'd be responding to the new tariffs in full later on friday markets are already taking a how morning kristen salumi is standing by at the new york stock exchange live to her after we speak to white house correspondent kimberly halted in washington d.c. kimberly this response by china wasn't really a surprise given what the u.s. had been doing before was that. it wasn't a surprise what is a bit of a surprise is how the u.s. president has reacted typically he lashes out at china and he did that but he took it a step further and is also lashing out simultaneously against the hair head of the central bank here in the united states the chair of the federal reserve jerome
12:51 am
powell in one tweet he says that who is our bigger enemy jay powell or chairman she now why is the president doing this why is he linking his demand for lower interest rates which would stimulate the u.s. economy he believes with china well essentially as this trade war ask and continues on the blowback is going to affect consumers here in the united states not just china and donald trump reelection hinges potentially on the success of the strong u.s. economy staying in place if that doesn't happen donald trump needs a scapegoat and it appears that rate at least right now that he is pointing the finger at the federal reserve chair at the same time with respect to these talks between china and the united states the concern at all this is that they may not happen there is a sort of a tentative schedule for the chinese delegation to come to washington next month but in light of the retaliatory tariffs that have been put in place by china the
12:52 am
fact that it mirrors the schedule of the u.s. tariffs on 300000000000 in chinese goods certainly sends a very strong and loud message that perhaps china is not in the mood for negotiating right now and of course as well as those talks we have the g. 7 summit which is coming up this week and one can only assume that this is going to be a key talking point there as well. key fear because the concern is the spiraling effect for the global economy we do know that already economists here in the united states are signaling concerns about that we know that the u.s. president. is talking with global leaders at the g. 7 about this in fact the united states in a preparation call with reporters said that they had requested this be on the agenda we're talking about the world's 2 largest economies right now but in the midst of all of this every other nation is caught up we also know that right now
12:53 am
the the the chair of the federal reserve says that much of this uncertainty points to the trade war that this is in his view uncharted territory so yes this is a concern for global leaders the u.s. president leaving late friday local time in washington to head to bordeaux france and again we do expect that the u.s. president may according to his tweet say something sooner than that but certainly he is very angry right now and lashing out there with the phones very much i want to go to chris and soon because of the stock exchange in new york christine bring us up to date with how the markets are reacting to those. well they're not reacting well rob the markets have been turbulent all month on fears of a possible global recession and the possibility of this trade war with china and now i've got the double whammy today from the announcement from the fed chairman that he would not be cutting interest rates and also the follow up to that from
12:54 am
president trump basically saying that u.s. suppliers needed to look for a new supply chain that really sent the market tumbling the day started flat and then tis a patient with the lingering knowledge that the announcement was coming from powell in the day and now it's gone down more than $400.00 points. on this news more than one and a half percent and that's because the united states does so much trade with china obviously it imports some $558000000000.00 in chinese goods earlier in the week we had reports that corporate earnings were not so strong ironically retail was one bright spot retailers like target and wal-mart doing well now with news that this trade war with china is intensifying retailers exactly like that are also going to see problems in their profit and their bottom line so when the president says it's time to look for alternatives in terms of trade you see what happens with investor

12:56 am
crucial in our fight against climate change the amazon produces 20 percent of the world's oxygen that's why it's called the planet's lungs but environmentalist warn if the burning continues at this rate the rain forest will transform to a landscape resembling the african savannah and rather than produce oxygen the antidote to global warming the former rain forest will humid carbon instead in brazil sister e was seen difficult situations but for the 1st time we have this kind of situation that was created almost with official encouragement from the government environmental groups say ranchers and log are started the fires to clear the land. they blame brazil's president. as a candidate he promised to give businesses access to natural resources to restore the country's economy as president he has gutted funding for brazil's environmental

and forstmann agency and he now says without offering evidence that environmental groups set the fires themselves. now the amazon is bigger than europe how can you fight criminal fires in such an area it is clearly criminal how can you do it you need to catch them in the act otherwise there's nothing you can do now non-governmental organizations are losing money money that came from germany and norway they are unemployed now so they are trying to overthrow. the hash tag pray for amazonas has been trending on twitter. and other world leaders have reacted as well our house is burning literally tooted french president emanuel macron it is in international crisis he's called the members of the g. 7 summit to discuss the amazon fire at their upcoming meeting this weekend. castro al-jazeera washington ok let's get more from our correspondent who is near port

a very you and brazil's wrongdoing instinct i'm standing in a bunch field this field is for sale it's not clear whether this land was burnt deliberately whether it was accidental or whether it was a natural phenomenon that is unlikely to be investigated as i say this is a frontier town the kind of people who come here they come here to the forest because they do cattle ranching to make money out of the timber industry and this is where president diable sinatra's word is law these people generally voted voted for him to become president at the beginning of this year he has said that the kind of crimes the kind of fires are being set illegally are unlikely to be investigated he sees the environmentalist indigenous community as an impediment to further development of this area which he says is right for development 70 percent of the state the state of around on your say 5 hours flying time from stop paolo another 2

hours drive to get from porto vale your to where we are now a long way from everywhere very difficult to police unlikely that any any crimes are likely to be investigated and that is partly the problem that been raging in and around this region the neighboring state of amazon us you can spot these from satellites satellites up in the sky but that doesn't really help the policing down on the ground so what goes on here is unlikely they're going to be aware of the international condemnation that you just mentioned about mark on about other people speaking about this they have to make a living they're here to try to develop this region and that is continuing with or without the flame. iran's foreign minister has hailed positive talks with french president emanuel knock on salvaging the 2015 nuclear deal speaking to reporters after meeting the crown said both countries have made suggestions on how to move forward after the u.s. pulled out of the deal last year mccomb has previously said he will either try to soften the impact of u.s.
