lots of the security problems can be solved or at least decreased. i do think there will be more rivalry but there will also be more opportunities. artificial intelligence and many high—tech areas that need the cooperation between china and the united states. i do not agree with you. if we look back to history, we will see that a lot of wars have originated from economic conflicts. china's history has seen many great powers rise and fall. and it builds its us strategy brick by careful brick. president trump's visit is an important moment for china. the host will do nothing to antagonise his guest, but he has less reason than any recent chinese leader to bow to american demands. president xi believes the united states is in steep decline and china is rising, in a power game to define our century. carrie gracie, bbc news, on the great wall of china.

in the dense forests of indonesia, a new species of great ape has been discovered by a team of international scientists. it's the tapanuli orang—utan, and there are just 800 of them, which makes them the most endangered great ape in the world. our science reporter victoria gill has the story. the remote mountain forests of sumatra are home to some of our closest ape relatives. and a small population here, first discovered just 20 years ago, has been hiding a scientific secret. this is the tapanuli orangutan, a species new to science. until now, it was thought that there were just two distinct species of orangutan, sumatran and bornean, like this big male here. but this new study shows that there are actually three — a tiny population has been hidden away and isolated by hundreds of thousands of years of evolution. early dna analysis suggested these animals were peculiar compared to the other sumatran apes.
10:32 pm
so, scientists embarked on a detailed study examining what they ate, and their unique calls. years of painstaking genetic comparisons enabled scientists to reconstruct the animals‘ evolutionary history. the final piece of the puzzle, though, was tiny but consistent differences between the sumatran and this, the tapanuli orangutan‘s skull. it's an amazing breakthrough, i think. there's only seven, if we exclude ourselves, great ape species. so, adding one to that very small list is spectacular. withjust 800 known individuals, this species will go straight onto the critically endangered list. logging, mining and plans for a hydroelectric damn already pose a threat to its habitat. the hope is that adding this ape to the biology textbooks will help to ensure its survival.

10:42 pm
the times says the appointment leaves the prime minister vulnerable toa leaves the prime minister vulnerable to a renewed coup for herjob. the guardian also lead to that appointment saying the prime minister's choice has angered backbench tory mps. also focusing on the angerfrom backbench tory mps. also focusing on the anger from tory backbenchers that his appointment. this also leads the metro. the ft leads with the rise in interest rates signalling that more increases could be on the way. the express says that thousands of foreign nationals, who were supposed to be deported by the home office, are on the run in britain. so it's politics and economics for the next ten minutes. take is to the front of the times. theresa may underfire in front of the times. theresa may under fire in the front of the times. theresa may underfire in the light front of the times. theresa may under fire in the light of changes in defence. michael fallon has
10:43 pm
resigned and she has replaced him with chief whip gavin williamson and this has angered a great number of people for the variety of reasons, andi people for the variety of reasons, and i think it's important to really get this story, that the role of defence secretary is hugely important, particularly to conservatives. if you say to the average labour mp and they want health and education, and defences the dream job for a lot of people in the dream job for a lot of people in the conservative party and this man has no more held a ministerial post expressed any opinions about anything, least of all defence, and so anything, least of all defence, and so it is particularly galling for the conservative party to see gavin williamson elevated, and adding to the problem is that he has been somebody who has are always argued things like people having to wait their turn and if you promote too many from a young and take it irritates the whole balance, and he
