7:02 pm
7 s. not lead to anything for a long time is just a talking shop and with their leaders probably doing let's hope they weeded out of some dialogue and deal with the many issues that concern. there were global challenges and my home is trying to be done is broke. every failure we see that you are talking to iran to into putin last week last week so. no he got expect much but but there is. a chance that the dialogue might help. leaders to come up with some solution the biggest issues. that he wanted to bring was a shoe of iniquities may be changing that is them. because the complete isn't as american say as become sick it's really and balanced to favor the very rich and
7:03 pm
the sponsor of the rest of the nation something must be dog that loved expect that to be to happen it is we're speaking and this is the forget that the g. 7 today doesn't represent don't work before the church 7 would start represented 70 percent of them were g.d.p. and. today he's only about 40 percent who are g.d.p. and 20 percent of the work the commission g 7 is an interregnum to do bust due west not of digimon e of it and there's a big elephant is china isn't there so she 7 bt is not going to produce anything and many leaders arrive here. the west is in disarray many it's like a dysfunctional family within want to be many leaders and if you're going to position and it's difficult to see whether they're going to be able to come up with a solution to the global challenges which they will face ok so president trump will
7:04 pm
be able to rip up the final communique because there were be one but to what extent will listen it be all about president trump you didn't want to come as as we were hearing just a few minutes ago but he is not happy it seems unless he is dominating the agenda you know what president drama has come to this meeting to look maybe to talk to the other readers but to talk to his electorate let's not forget that president trouble started their election campaign so he could be. claiming that you friends american interests he doesn't seem druid eyes that american interests. meet with a group or economic interest and dissent fishes jude which we can see. everywhere is not conducive to producing proper answers to the group or challenge my cause billions insisting form or 2 that are responses and it's not
7:05 pm
what we have. but we'll get let's just hope that on some issue there might be some progress at a trade war that. that trungpa started is very damaging to every month to do global economies under verge of recession the situation is really critical to situation is dangerous and it's hoped that by talking to get that maybe acting everyone is going to defend their own interests it's not necessary do it for ok check good to talk to many thanks dave for being with us again. from some other. well as you heard the amazon fires are expected to be a big topic at the front's g. 7 summit brazil's president has ordered his military to help contain the fires of the world's largest rain forest tribal sinatra responded to the crisis after facing growing international criticism he blames unusually warm temperatures for the president blazes. the reports now from the states have long been here one of the
7:06 pm
worst affected regions. forest fires happen every year in brazil but it was the sheer scale this year shocked the world the so-called lungs were on fire strong criticism firstly from within brazil and the rest of the world forced president. to respond. forest fires happen all over the world so this is no reason to impose international sanctions brazil will continue to be as it is now a country that is friendly with everyone and is responsible in protecting its amazon forest. but he's been accused by many of creating the very conditions he is now trying to control but there's a defiance from the president and resentment from his supporters and other countries telling was ill what to do. or don't agree that other countries should come here to presume we don't go to other countries to upset them you don't see
7:07 pm
brazilians dia causing problems only working to seen money home to invest here this is pioneering country brazil's made population centers also nado had a message that resonated here. 63 years old and i'm never seen a president as honest as this one who confronts the problems and says what has to be seed he's defending brazil. these are people who came to tame the forest to cut and burn to cover the future from what they consider to be a wilderness this particular blaze may not be huge but it's one of tens of thousands burning across brazil some control some not some illegal some legal what's clear is that few will be investigated but the consequences will eventually be felt around the world. the fires have been put out but what's left is this blackened devastation which will take many years to recover. 50 percent of the state of has already been developed the forested for lucrative
7:08 pm
timber then burned to create land for cattle rearing and sawyer production the rest is up for grabs and no one it seems is stopping them at the moment if you burn the forest you are backed up by a president and then you do exactly as you want to do because you know nothing will happen and that's a problem and we have seen statistically when this law enforcement fires in deforestation goes down when we don't have it it goes up. the fires are still burning but will bolster not bend on the big heat of international pressure or bow to the ambitions of some his strongest supporters that they're al-jazeera your state northwestern brazil. protesters in hong kong have been trying to disrupt the territories transport system as rallies against the government and the 12 week police and fired tear gas on crowds blocking roads but barricades and comune some protesters destroyed surveillance equipment a sit in of the city's airport earlier this month led to hundreds of flight
7:09 pm
cancellations rallies 1st began in june over an extradition bill that was shelved but why didn't you include demands for political reforms let's go live to hong kong now the serious point here is that when just a few moments ago when we were all waiting cross to police about the start of the fire tear gas. yes adrian we very much i got caught up in the middle of that the police you're referring to right here you can see them formed up on this road in behind me this day really started out as a peaceful march it was a march that really continued this protest movement it's been going for almost 3 months now and they marched through the streets of kalou and it was a protest march that they had applied for permission to hold and had been granted by. the police but as we have seen many times some groups of protesters in fact right now on the street about 100 meters down that direction there's still thousands of parties protesters here they broke off from that main march and
7:10 pm
surrounded or attempted to block off access to a police station which is where the direction that the riot police have come from they rode graffiti on the walls outside the police station and tried to erect some barricades around there and that's when the police started to take some action in the last hour or so it's been a bit of a standoff adrian with the protest is backing all for treating down this road then forcing their way back towards this police line so that's what the situation is at the moment the police now slowly inching down this road firing tear gas i guess with the ultimate aim of clearing the protesters completely out of this area last weekend wayne protest organizers were keen to prove the protests were nonviolent and the deed that they were there was not all my monch what what happened to that. well i think you know there are 2 separate things going on here and really we've
7:11 pm
seen that from day one of this protest movement which really started as a say almost 3 months ago the protests that we're seeing for the most part throughout the course of each day a largely peaceful sometimes we've seen millions of people coming out onto the streets last weekend as you mentioned an estimated 1700000 people took part in what was a a peaceful march with very few police to be seen throughout the course of this week though this seems to have been a different approach from the police a bit of a different tactic have really taken a step back and over allowed some of the protests to take place as i say with a little riot police presence today we seem cool route reverted back to what we had seem a few weeks ago and indeed over the course of the past 2 and a half months with groups of protesters breaking off to take some perhaps more extreme action and that is what has prompted the response from these riot police the protesters are responding to the kit
7:12 pm
a tear gas by throwing bricks and other items towards the riot police so again we have this period at the moment adrian where it's a bit of a standoff when many things how does this point a reporting live from hong kong was we showed you a few moments ago while european council president has been speaking in berets ahead of the g. 7 summit he's taking questions from reporters at the moment earlier he said that he wants to see an end to trade wars but i think a stop to trade war. trade and the reform of the. then trade was. trade or through the 2 recession while trade will boost the economy not to mention the fact that trade was among g 7 members will lead to erode the ink already weakened trust among us let's go back to our diplomatic efforts james pace who is live in just outside barrett in
7:13 pm
france donald tusk saying he wants to see an end to trade wars wishful thinking perhaps but it's quite quite obvious who those comments were directed at. yeah directed at president trump has already said that he will retaliate against the new french digital service tax potentially with taxes on french wines going into the u.s. president to a school was asked about that specifically moments ago and he said i will protect french wine with determination and he says if the u.s. does introduce any new tariffs on e.u. goods the e.u. will respond in kind so really tough talking and the threat of further trade wars already we're seeing the effect of the global economy on of the u.s. china trade war it's hotting up between the u.s. and the e.u. as we speak he's been speaking about some of the other key issues here as well
7:14 pm
adrian that plan to have discussion about the fires in the amazon at the g. 7 he says he supports that very strongly president mackerels plan to bring that up at the g. 7 but he does say he sees some positive developments in recent hours in the position of president both scenario he says his position he thinks is beginning to change now he's saying he's ready to fight the fires and to cooperate with the international community he sees that as a positive another issue that's always or in recent years been that these days have meetings is whether they should become a g 8 again remember they used to have russia in them when russia. was involved in u.k. train an annex in crimea it was kicked out in the g. 8 became the g. 7 should it go back to a g. 8 he's put forward a proposal no not yet he said what they should do is invite ukraine the new president of ukraine presidents their own ski to the next g. 7 meeting and get ukraine as a guest and ask their view of whether russia should be involved and the other
7:15 pm
issues being to talking about of course top of the agenda for the e.u. in many ways is the possible imminent departure of one of its members president to us could be having his 1st meeting with the new u.k.p. . minister boris johnson of discussing brics it he has said he is prepared to discuss any new proposals put forward by the u.k. but this is the caveat they need to be operational realistic and acceptable to all the member states of the new and then he added including on and checks for the moment many thanks japan says that north korea has fired what appears to be 2 short range missiles into the sea off its east coast according to south korea's military they were fired from some dock in south harm young province japan says they cause no damage it's the 7th such test in a month u.s. president donald trump says he's not concerned by the latest missile tests. no i
7:16 pm
don't think so i think that we have a very good relationship we'll see what happens that could always change but we'll see what happens kim jong un has been you know pretty straight with a i think. we're going to see what's going on we're going to see what's happening to the likes of testing missiles but we never restricted short range missiles we'll see what happens many nations that. we tested a very big one the other day as you probably noticed. picks up on the news a meteorologist kevin corriveau is here with a weather forecast for us then. no backing down from the leaders of the world's 2 largest economies the trade war between china and the u.s. rages on. the last chance to save them all the white wine from being lost forever. then the yankees go large in los angeles action from major league baseball coming out in sports.

7:18 pm
a little bit weaker storm but still very heavy rain expected and then as we go towards monday the storm is going to be remnants and that is still going to bring some very heavy rain across the region so as we go towards the next 24 to 48 hours do expect to see still heavy rain across southern taiwan that is going to be a big problem there the other big situation we're talking about is here across southern florida this storm system is expected to make possibly a tropical depression over the next 24 hours maybe even a tropical storm and that storm would be tropical storm dorian. whether sponsored by cats out of. over 100 years ago britain and france made a secret deal to divide the middle east between them now we can draw a map in the 2nd episode we explore the lasting effects of this agreement if there is a original set to sites because it's that those borders were drawn without consulting the people have to live with the. sykes people lines in the sun or known

7:20 pm
out of syria headlines the u.s. president is stepping up his country's trade war with china announcing true new tariff increases donald trump also told american companies to pull out and return home it's in response to china saying that it would impose tariffs on $75000000000.00 worth of u.s. goods the president of the european council has just spoken ahead of the g 7 leaders summit in france startled tosk warns that trade wars could break. the trust between its members. and the testers in hong kong are trying to disrupt the transport system the riot police and fire to gas on crowds who blocked roads off to a logical to rise march. from his 1st began in june over an extradition bill to the demonstrations of wide demand political reform. one on the ever expanding trade between the u.s. and china russ feingold is an asia political risk on the list joins us now live via skype from taipei how much further ross can this go before someone breaks.
7:21 pm
it's a good question and it's something that industry participants obviously stock markets and even consumers and certainly in united states are wondering about president trump has made it very clear if there aren't concessions on a range of trade issues that he would implement these tariffs he actually moves slower than how to earlier been anticipated because there were several times when he met him being in person where there was a bit of it it's hard there was a bit of a sure that lasted a few months but when a deal hasn't been signed he's then proceeded to implement these tariffs so the question that we're all trying to understand is if there is no deal are we in for a long haul with the tariffs at these rates and the answer to that is potentially yes and what other measures could the states who are in term china undertake beyond these to increase tariffs. ross what what are we to make of president trump him by
7:22 pm
ordering u.s. companies to get out of china and return to making products in the u.s. which goes legally he called to be called a lot of them to do it. that's right so we have to be careful to separate president trumps stylistic way of putting across his message on a important policy issue and what the actual policies of the us government will be i mean there's certainly measures the u.s. government could take to encourage companies to return to the united states or to pull out of china and there's also you can call them punitive measures by not giving procurement opportunities for example or writing rules that would make it difficult for companies that have operations or investments in china from competing for certain kinds of federal contracts so definitely this concept of taking some kind of action against companies that continue to have operations especially
7:23 pm
manufacturing operations in china if it's not over there is definitely things that the federal government at the behest of president trump could look at doing and if we are in this for the long haul one of the economic impacts likely to be on people like you may who have is watching you know that this is a great question because i think it explains in many ways how we got here whether it's you jim paying or donald trump they look at the size of their economy they look at the mix of imports exports things like that need decided that they could each of them decided that they could withstand this howard creases in the united states at the end of 2017 there was a large corporate tax cut obviously unemployment is very low the economy is doing well president trump likes to talk about that and see chimping he's looking at expanding exports and trade relationships with countries in asia he's even trying to resolve a trade dispute between japan and south korea so that. you could trade more with
7:24 pm
those 2 countries so each reader seems to have done their calculations and thought that the consumers who are their economies can withstand this kind of hit in the truth is up to now the united states has obviously china so economic growth has slowed but the but again both leaders might be taking this bad that their economies could it could withstand the pain of these increased tariffs whether it's by passing along the cost to consumers or diversifying supply chains could talk to again many thanks indeed russ feingold in taipei. the syrian army has seized the last pocket of rebel control in hama province are claiming towns lost early in the war the most recent government offensive in the northwest intensified in late april hundreds of people have been killed now parts of the province are all that remain of rebel held territory after more than 80 years of war i was here as bernard smith reports now from an taqiyya in the syria turkey border. no sooner her family
