from europe and the u.s.. here are your markets. we are seeing a little bit of flatlining for european stocks. try to figure out exactly what will happen when president trump meets with president xi jinping. the u.s. 10 year yield is holding just about 2%. brent at 66.34. we are seeing a big move with gold. it is the last trading day of the month, so watch out for any volatility. what marlon is doing -- merlin, announcing a couple of private equities were learning at the company. they are the owner of madame tussaud, amongst other entertainment things in london. coming up, more from our exclusive interview with the -- the-- with the fran san francisco fed president.
let's get straight to bloomberg first word news. ifit is too early to know the federal reserve should cut rates, according to san francisco fed president mary daly. they are widely expected to cut in july. we spoke exclusively with mary daly at the aspen ideas festival in colorado. >> if the data comes in and shows significant weakening, that would call for different action then if the data just showed headwinds. -- than if the data just showed headwinds. so it is too early, from my perspective, to use the tool. ofncine: hsbc's global head fixed income research says it would be odd for the fed cut rate and exit the balance sheet. rates and fix the balance sheet. >> the fed is still tightening. the impact of the previous rate
hikes is working through. they are still shrinking the balance sheet. >> the global economy could be headed towards a slump according to billionaire paul singer. could be as there market correction of 30-40%. but he could not predict the timing. >> i think we are at the high end of the risk spectrum. , or have beening expecting, it is not today's of today's epiphany, the possibility of a slowdown. >> global news, 24 hours a day on air, on tictoc, and on twitter, powered by more than 2700 journalists and analysts in more than 120 countries. this is bloomberg. francine? francine: thank you so much. breaking news out of the boj. this is some of the purchases they are doing with the japanese bonds. the boj cutting its jgb
purchases for july but is raising purchases on the shorter durations. will it have an impact on the curve? we will get that in a second. i'm actually going to do a price check on jgb. i don't know if we have it up, otherwise, i will bring up my terminal in a couple of seconds. the world's most powerful leaders are gathering in japan for a key meeting -- 40 meetings that may -- for key meetings. things to watch out for are rising tensions between the white house and iran and any progress in u.s.-china trade talks. president trump play down expectations earlier today. -- played down expectations earlier today. >> i am meeting with xi jinping tomorrow, as you have heard. there seems to be a rumor about that. who knows? i think it will be productive.
at a minimum, it will be productive and we will see what happens. francine: for more, let's get straight to give on men in osaka, japan. osaka,vonne mann in japan. president trump praising some allies and beating up on others. yvonne: a very busy day for president trump. he has nine bilateral meetings during his trip. he had several this morning weather with shinzo abe, vladimir putin, or narendra modi. with all of these countries, there was some sort of tension. whether it was trade related or geopolitical. clip, we saw more of a cautious president trump leading up to that talk with president xi jinping. he said there is a good chance of doing something with china. that when itaid
came to pledging not to add more tariffs if talks do not yield anything, he said he has not decided. so you has not promised to withhold for now. now.w tariffs for we have also heard from present xi jinping, perhaps speaking to his domestic audience, condemning bullying. he mentioned this during a session that any attempt to put one's own interest first will not win any popularity. francine: what exactly are we talking about that is at stake? a lot of people say the meeting tomorrow will set the direction for the world's economy. others are saying this will what -- this will decide war and peace in many regions. is this right? yvonne: yeah, the consensus
seems to be this will just be when osiris -- be buenos aires 2.0. again, there are a lots of questions about how long this truce could even last post-osaka. we talk about the issue with huawei, the wall street journal was a demanding or hoping to demand a list of the export ban to get some kind of trade negotiation. is that some kind of provisional demand leading up to the talks? larry kudlow was saying there are no provisions leading up to saturday. so a lot is at stake but a lot is in doubt. francine: thank you very much. in a soccer, japan. japan. us -- in osaka, joining us are at -- are two
guests. what are you expecting tomorrow? issues.had major what will the vibe of the -- vibe be? leslie: it will be very difficult. the black cloud hovering over american politics has been this ongoing feud. ande is so much concern will dampen the world economies and growth, that protectionism is growing. the wto has come up with the reports say 22 new restrictive measures on trade. this is not a good situation. it seems unlikely to me there will be any germanic or significant change coming out of the meeting, but everyone will be watching. francine: i will go to markets in a second, but there is also a
report that china will ask to take huawei off the list. will that escalate tensions? leslie: it may well. it is highly unlikely that the president of the united states would concede to that without some sort of broader deal. although he did have that one moment where he said that if the right deal was on the table, maybe he would. which undermines everything he said about huawei being a national security problem, not just a technology or trade issue. francine: so what do we do? go to cash, go to gold? >> a lot of people have gone into gold. it seems it has moved ahead of itself. it may move slightly higher, but it would be speculative on my behalf to speculate on it. the fundamental issue of opportunity at hand is that everything that is happening is
driving bond yields lower longer. and this is something that started in the early 1990's. this is one of the fundamental forces driving the equity market. outcome of tomorrow's discussions is the cost of a coin we don't know if they will declare truth, eternal friendship, or peace. but even if they were to declare a eternal friendship tomorrow, most likely, the fundamental risks between the united states and china, which has really been driving this, will be there the day after tomorrow. francine: but you need to take a bath on whether the fed is so dovish because they did a mistake or because they worry about the trade war? if it is one or the other, it changes the way you view the meeting tomorrow. burkhard: it is a bit of all.
the fed it feels bullied, clearly, which is holding them back from giving what the president wants. yet if the discussion turns out to be a no-deal discussion, it will be just another peace in in overall puzzle -- piece the overall puzzle. , have allieslie and the other leaders gotten used to president trump's style? even before he arrived coming to saint india needs to reverse some tariffs, china needs to do this. arrived, saying india needs to reverse some tariffs, china needs to do this. leslie: it is extraordinary that --calls into commitment calls into question the commitment of japan's defense,
one of the most fundamental things of the post-war world order. and meansurprised there may be a significant affect. there is a -- effect. there is a holding pattern that people are either waiting for the president to be voted out of office or perhaps just dial it back. it is difficult to do with diplomacy in a serious way with that kind of rhetoric. francine: thank you, leslie from chatham house and burkhard from credit suisse. coming up, the debate heats up, the second night of the democratic debates gets testy with kamala harris emerging as a star of the night. this is bloomberg. ♪ >> guys, you know what? america does not want to witness a food fight, they want to know how we will put food on the table.

francine: economics, finance, politics, this is "bloomberg: surveillance." let's get straight to the bloomberg business flash in new york city. >> boeing falling the most in six weeks. that on a scoop it could take months to fix of the latest software glitch. the issue was discovered during the faa similar tests when the pilot experienced a lag in emergency response times. after decades, apple's design chief is leaving to form an independent company. he is responsible for the look of the company's most iconic products, but how much was he worth to apple? billion.ts verdict: $9
that is how much of a loss in value when the news broke. as mentioned, the highly anticipated trump xi jinping meeting could determine the next chapter in the trade war between the u.s. and china. so how is this conflict affecting trade relations? annmarie hordern has all of the details. annmarie: we are looking at a deep dive into trade. while you might think this looks like a wet or dream catcher, it webresents global trade -- or a dream catcher, it represents global trade. america's biggest trading partner is china and we have mexico and canada in the pink. the u.s. also has a surplus with countries like the uae, netherlands, great britain, and belgium. but if you start to look at trade as a percentage of gdp, the story looks drastically different. what you can see is that china and the u.s. actually don't rely
on international trade as much as other countries. if we were to wrap up the status quo, countries that could really be hurt are these like germany, south korea, mexico and canada. they count on international ,rade for their growth something world leaders will take into account as they meet in a succah -- osaka. francine: still with us is leslie and burkhard. first of all, do we underestimate the flow of trade? ,e even heard it from apple about potentially moving supply chains. burkhard: depends on who you talk to. usually, when i talked to investors, i do not think they underestimate the relevance of trade at all. if anything, it is being blown out of proportion to the extent
that we should not forget that 70-80% of industrialized , whiches gdp is services is not affected by the trade wars. so i thought this was a good way of putting a realistic sense. francine: so who is benefiting? vietnam will have more of the supply chains, is that a good way to invest? burkhard: they are not the type of companies you can invest in. that is not how these things work. but absolutely, it is southeast asia that is making pitches. but nobody has the scale that china has. and let's not forget, companies are very pragmatic. and companies do act fast. they have had a year to realize they need a plan b or a plan c. and this will not be the last trade spat that we experience. francine: who benefits from
this? are there allies of the u.s. that could benefit? led to if this actually the long-term aspirations that there is a fundamental rethinking of how china runs its internal economy, many stand to benefit. but that is not aware of the trade conflict is taking place. so it is hard to say who benefits. it looks like it is creating uncertainty and instability. it is hard to make these decisions if you feel your supply chains will be disrupted. and if you look inside the whoed states, many of those looked to trump as possibly making their lives better are not doing well. we know the stories. and certainly, europe is getting squeezed because, again, they're looking like they might be forced to take sides. trade is the medium in which these take place. it is much more risky. burkhard: one thing i would say
is -- francine: go ahead. burkhard: the idea of national champions. remember in the 1970's? that will be the beneficiaries. francine: thank you, both stay with us. coming up, a swiss standoff. switzerland says it will block trading of shares across the european union. we take a look at how that will affect investors. that is coming up next. . this is bloomberg. ♪
francine: this is "bloomberg: surveillance." i am francine lacqua in london. unless the last deal with brussels happens, investors and some of europe's biggest companies could face problems today. for once, the issue is not brexit, what an ongoing row -- but an ongoing row. swiss stocks are the third most heavily weighted of the european benchmark. we will have much more on that shortly from our reporter on the ground. but let's get back to our guests , leslie from chatham house and burkhard from credit suisse. we were having a collegiate disagreement over the break over inflation and whether central banks changing their mandate. his inflation at 2% still the right thing to look at? burkhard: not for central banks.
disagree with the consensus mantra that inflation is driven by monetary policy. live, inflation is driven by free competition or a lack thereof. we have got too much of everything. fashion, restaurants, cartilage, what happy, and you can buy all of this online -- what have you come and you can buy all of this online. so in this hypercompetitive world, who can't raise prices -- can raise prices? jeff bezos has done more to kill inflation then central banks. needs financial system stability. francine: will this lead more to central banks coupled with fiscal policy? we have been hearing that for years. but fiscal policy, in europe, has not come forward.
burkhard: fiscal policy is a national, sovereign issue. europe does not have a homogenous, aligned fiscal policy. but one thing seems clear to me. this trade war is a misnomer, to start with. rift a deep, geopolitical which is shared by many who feel they did not participate in the blessings of globalization. francine: we will have plenty more on that next.

partnership and the other one is kenya and we are developing their and we are the only manufacturer there, so we are following like we are doing a year being strategy, and we see that we have the potential for european trucks in china really growing because the transportation efficiency is higher than in the local production. so we are going to be very successful. francine: by how much do you see it growing in china? >> it depends on the market development, but since the basic is always a gross potential there. year we are selling for and
have thousand, and the next five years it could be easily doubled or tripled. it depends not so on the market development overall, but if we improve the efficiency, and that one of the chinese governments targets if we can contribute to this with the right products and efficiency. francine: how difficult will expanse and in the u.s. before your brand given that it is quite saturated and it is a very competitive market and there are also possible tariffs coming up? the market in our industry is very competitive, so we established two years ago and acquirediance 68.8% and we are working with them to -- in exchanging drivetrain components that they
will use in the future, a lot of different drivetrain components from our overall crew, and it makes them successful. participate in the economic scale. our strategy is based on smart partnerships instead of acquired companies to whatever price. it is much better to work situation, ands this is our strategy, so we have no intention to change. francine: how much of a headache is the trade tension between the u.s. and china? can you repeat it? francine: i was asking you how worried you are, how concerned you are about the u.s. china trade relationship? the volatility in the overall
market, this is part of it, and this kind of discussions and arguments between them, i think it would be helpful if they could find a solution because it will stable the overall it is aent of course little bit volatility or the last couple of years, as we all know, businesswise, for us, it is not so important because we are producing our products always in the region, we are solid in the region. it makes us export import wise, it is not a big headache for us. it would be better to have solutions because this will help the overall market development. think you so much for you so much- thank for joining us. ive saysigner jony

whether it's immigration, health care in particular with kamala harris and elizabeth warren previously saying they would get rid of employer-based health insurance for that is a dramatic move. joe biden not only is he much older at age 76. pete buttigieg, only 37. he is also coming from a different generation. he is having to defend positions he took in an era when the values, any number of policies were very different from where they are today. it is a difficult position for him. francine: where you think the policies will be, come the actual presidential -- it is crazy that we are starting these debates now. moneywises involved is quite outstanding, but what are the policies that people care about, immigration, health care -- >> health care up top.
obama made the big change to the affordable care act. trump has taking it on as a big issue. even though americans clearly not want it, but which way it will go is important. immigration will be the issue, once we get to the generals, that the president will make the issue, so it is being fought out amongst these candidates. you've seen the position move. people are talking about providing health care for undocumented illegal immigrants against -- charging charges against immigrants against criminal as opposed a harsher standard. taxes, obviously, whether the corporate tax cuts will be rolled back, whether they will be a wealth tax. that is worn's signature proposal. there's a lot of debate over that. francine: do you believe the polls?
is this time different? funny.re right, it's the lesson of brexit, of 2016 -- of 2016 where the pollsters don't know for sure. it is a good thing we are starting this early giving how many people are on the playing theory. the nice thing -- playing field. the nice thing about the debates is that they were really about the issues. the polls will move. they are shifting right now. more data will come out. this is all we have at the moment. francine: the most difficult question coming giving -- given the mood missing -- music, will the democrats choose someone center or more to the left? >> there isn't a lot in the center at the moment. there is joe biden. there's a lot, if you look at
the american electorate, most of the democratic candidates are quite significantly to the left of the middle. the country is divided, 36% conservative, moderate and then 20% further on the left. which emerges -- what we know to be true in the primaries, those who vote tend to be more to the left in the democratic party, so it's difficult to predict. francine: how do you trade all of this? >> i think the impact of markets is a greatly overstated thing. there is no conclusive evidence that democrats or republicans are better or worse for markets, so the ray -- way we trade is the way we always trade. view, to take a long-term -- view -- the rich willng
change the composition of the u.s. from the investment perspective it has positive and/or negative implications. it's not something -- it is something you can easily opine upon. if you are rich you say it's bad , but then if the state was to redistribute the revenues to a -- to better education and other good things improving the infrastructure, then it will have a long-term impact that will lift the economy. francine: thank you for joining us. stay with us. , the debate rages over interest rates. we will -- review some of the exclusive interview with mary daly. this is bloomberg. ♪

expectations of the big meeting earlier. ofon there is a lot controversy -- yvonne man, there is a lot of controversy surrounding this meeting. i think they are expecting a status quo, probably the best outcome that we have talked to people here. i mention this is probably one of the most g20 meetings that we have seen when it comes to trade. high-stakes ahead of saturday. the president said just a couple of hours ago that he did not promised to hold off on additional tariffs on china if these talks do not yield anything on saturday. his plan as you said could be be playing off as optimistic saying this is another opportunity to put these talks back on track. xi hear from president condemning projection is him
during a meeting earlier. he was talking about how he is condemning bullying here as well . he stopped short talking about and labeling trump, cc both sides plane to their audience. >> deeply that hong kong will play in this, if we see protests on a given friday or saturday night? do they play in? i would say very little. in fact we spoke to some people here, and there is some mention of it, but it will not be a hot topic here. we have seen some protesters in g20 to make for the this issue a bigger one and four president trump to raise that issue with china as well. say hongoint, i would kong seems to be at the bottom of it right now. francine: thank you so much.
now is the deputy .ead of european equities the mood music seems to change quite a lot. someone explained to me, we heard from the secretary steve interviewving an saying there is a 90% chance or 90% of the trade deal that is done per that gave a low bit of hope to the markets. i guess the 10% is this ticket -- sticking point. >> what are we expecting to come out of this meeting? it is a challenging environment for investors to say anything meaningful given how unpredictable the various particle -- parties are. i think we will continue to seek talks between the two parties and we hopefully move towards a resolution later on in the year

how many people were watching, doesn't really have an effect on the polls. i think the other takeaway is that biden, despite his lead in the polls, gave a lackluster performance. ,trong, he is a good debater but he seemed unprepared for some of the questions he knew he was going to get on race, for instance. cede when to almost his time was up. -- there is it unusual were conversations about policies. far in advanceo that it seems they were having decent -- beefy discussions. >> the moderators were trying to pin them down on things. the supreme court overturns roe v. wade, what are you going to do? , willour health care plan

looking at the body language, if you just look at the tweets, president trump thrives on attacking people to get a good -- better deal for america. the g20 photo was quite controversial because the crown prince of saudi arabia was right in the middle, right at the front, and a lot of critics said he should not have had such a prominent place. tom: christine lagarde of the imf in the back, the leader of the netherlands, and i would point out, we need to make an important note. chancellor merkel of germany on of far right and the reports the last 24 hours of her being a bit fragile. it is a moment of public service for these leaders. francine: we will dig deeper into what people are saying in inking. -- thinking.

vladimir putin's point and for the gulf states -- point man for the gulf states. he will be meeting with mohammad bin salman. what do you hope as someone trying to attract investment to russia? kirill: we have great relationships with saudi arabia , from the last four years negative relations, we improved dramatically. it is not only about saudi arabia investing in russia. ed is oil deals to stabilize world markets -- it is oil deals to stabilize world markets. mohammad bin salman's historical role, and we see the young people of saudi women,enjoy driving for and using the internet. -- more than 70% of the population is under 35 and

a core team follows his design aesthetic, but there are reasons for optimism when you think about apple design has become a little bit tired. ed is waiting on the same basic concept and i think the company would benefit in a significant way. if you have a better team of jonathan ives acolytes, that might be a problem, but it might be an opportunity for a fresh start. tom: we segue as only we can do without likes web -- alex webb to a scathing piece not on g20 or brexit, red sox-yankees. even more standing around then cricket. and londoners have spoken they do not know what is happening. sox mean asial red much to most londoners as the tots mean to your average

basis for cooperative competition, rules of the game, , notu can resolve disputes by hammering the other country but by trying to work things out. a lot of people, particularly with china, look at this as a zero-sum game. people are concerned not just for economic reasons, but technological reasons and others about china's rise, and they are arguing for this disengagement process which moves in the opposite direction than the last 70 years to a greater measure of globalization and cooperation. francine: ambassador, the fact that there is less commonality amongst world leaders, what is the danger in that? everyone is trying to get a better deal for their country. if there was a crisis, would people still come together, and is that the only thing we need
to worry about? robert: it is a competitive world and becoming more competitive. the united states saw itself as the preeminent competitive power. now it has competition from china and other countries, but china in particular, not just traditional things china was selling, but advanced technologies were china was the dominant power, and also china's economic system is different from ours. we not only have competition from china, and very advanced technologies like 5g, aia, supercomputing, quantum computing, but you have a different set of rules and a different idea of what the global economic order should look like. it is difficult with the overlap of trade and tech knology and security make -- technology and security making it difficult to work out.
it is not a cold war in the traditional sense. you cannot isolate or contain china. it is not a conditional trade soup you -- dispute about traditional trade items. this is much more complicated in making a global economic order which is deteriorating, more difficult to resolve these issues. francine: do you think at will get much worse before it gets better? robert: they can either reach some kind of compromise, which the markets would like, and move on and continue the negotiations and try to work things out. if they don't do that, it will deteriorate into more escalation on trade and other issues, and that would be the danger. i don't think a major dramatic breakthrough is likely. tom: let us show some of the

the republican, main olympian snow, how do they find that? robert: it can be done again with a few key themes, one of which -- and your show just pointed out in the tweet chart jobs, these are important to americans, good, high-paying and stable jobs. there is so much uncertainty about employment that a lot of americans, even if they have jobs are concerned about the future, can they put food on the table and pay for their kids' education? how you generate employment be a .ey element, and health care these solutions that are expensive and unrealistic will
not work. however, you have to be ambitious. kennedy and reagan and bill clinton and obama all talked optimism,ng ahead aspirations of the american people. can you develop a set of themes that enable you to respond to those aspirations, but do it in a way -- tom: and resonate in the electorate. was their residence last night? robert: you can resonate with one type -- was there residence lastnight -- resonance night? robert: a couple of key counties well determine -- will determine the election. you have to understand when you campaign, you have to go to various districts which
emphasize different things, and that is the complexity the democratic already faces. you have to do both. francine: what are the chances of a centrist democrat running against a republican? lori: given the primary -- robert: given the primary system, they tend to favor someone who is not a centrist. there are so many debates when being atl to people the more exciting end of the spectrum. when you run in the general election, you have got to get the 30% of the people who are largely independent who are looking for a more moderate set of solutions. in the primaries, you have to play to the right or the left and in the general election, you rely on your base and you have to get 30% of people without a strong base that are more independent and moderate. tom: is there a barack obama in
miami? robert: that is what the discussions are trying to figure out at this point, who will break out and be the next barack obama? who can pull the party together? tom: do you glean anyone can do that? robert: i have a lot of confidence in joe biden. tom: what about the other 42? robert: there are some very good candidates who i don't know that well, who are aspiring to this. i know joe biden well and feel comfortable with him. others are trying to identify themselves in the minds of the american people and we will see how the process works out. tom: robert hormats with us, thank you so much. with rbc capital markets as well, we will do a chart with her in a moment. the boston red sox playing in
single best chart, lori calvasina with us. in honor of the end of the half, we are up in the margate -- market. yale --dson chart from yale, we are from not extended like 1999. 1999,we are not as bad as and when we look at tech and broad market valuations, things do not look like that. we are a little bit stretched if you look at a shorter-term view. we see the cftc data on our positioning. i think we are due to have a breather. i think we will get it in earnings season when expectations reset because of the trade war, and you will have a good buying opportunity, but
it will be volatile until the end of the year. tom: do i get a dividend and dividend growth? lori: if you are going into a period of fed easing, high dividend yielding stocks tend to have a big pop towards the beginning of the easing cycles. we have seen a nice move in utilities and reits which is well-deserved. tom: it is the evening of a friday and all looking to saturday tomorrow. francine: saturday, the big day where we are expecting president xi and president trump to meet. we have had conflicting reports on whether they can find agreement. a few days ago, secretary mnuchin said they were 90% there. that means there's 10% that

cotton prices do impact. we have seen a spike in cotton prices so that impacts whether we buy all cotton or cotton blend. i love the purity of 100% cotton or wool or cashmere, so we try to put out quality. francine: do you hedge? joseph: it is a little bit difficult. we look at future prices as we are six to nine months before the market. as we understand the price points, we adjust where our retail needs to be. francine: are your clients and a slowdown? joseph: i think it is more morays with how people are living. millennials are getting dressed now. francine: no more hoodies? joseph: it is good to see that the young i sees as it -- the
young eye sees it is important to dress well for the interview, the funeral. francine: why is it changing? is it psycho? robert: because their dads were cycle?y -- is it robert: because their dads were probably casual, they want a custom suit. they are looking at their own way of presenting themselves and it is key. francine: men's fashion is growing at a much bigger amount than women's but at a bigger base. will it catch up? joseph: i don't think so. men are this step children in fashion. it is true that men are the new women and are looking at their personal style at grooming and understanding what clothing is right for them. the business of fashion is
continuing to grow. thecine: do you feel like competitor, or are they more you? joseph: saddle row, all modern u.k.,ar comes out of the saddle row, the embodiment of personal style. we look at all the hollywood stars and dignitaries who have shopped there. francine: do you make a suit for someone and suddenly 20 people come to the store that day for the same suit? joseph: that happens more in womenswear. in menswear, yes, there are icons, but it is about the individual. if we can connect to them and say your appearance is important, that is how we can get the consumer. guys shop differently from women.

to major league baseball for making this happen. tom: you bring over the yankees and red sox with all of the distractions of london, including a cricket match which i do not understand, they do not understand what you were doing. they do not understand that center field is 385 feet away and the yankees have hit a number of home runs in the last few games. how do you teach them the game? sam: when you see the game up close and personal, you understand, but it takes some time to understand the finer points of baseball, as with cricket. the world is getting smaller with technology. we have fallen in love with english football and are big liverpool fans. the world gets smaller as technology brings sports to our global fan bases. we are here to bring baseball
closer to fans across the world. francine: there are very few european born players in your sport and there is no pro league. are you trying to change that? sam: we have players from all over the world, specifically through latin america, so we hope more young boys and will play baseball and make it to the major leagues. francine: are you doing this every year? are you going to make revenue in the next four or five years? sam: i think we will come back, neck stair with the cubs and cardinals. baseball has agreed to grow the to play anymore global fashion. tom: all of us have been taken by the serious injuries of your

pressure president trump has put on a run, he seems to have scaled back -- iran, he seems to have scaled back and he tried to get the europeans on board but that has not happened. robert: the president indicated he does not want a military solution, and the iranians have to focus on their domestic economy. i don't think they want an all-out confrontation with the u.s. basically what the american policy is, is to impose and the anteon sanctions -- up the on sanctions and to get others to be more assertive in the way they impose sanctions. the europeans are thinking of some way to go around american financial sanctions with a special purpose vehicle they have been talking about, has not really happened yet, but i think
the u.s. will try to quash that if they can, and get other countries to cut back more dramatically on imports of iranian oil. on iran iss strategy to basically up to the sanctions presser and get others to do likewise. -- pressure and get others to do likewise. francine: will anything be left of the nuclear accord? arert: the iranians suggesting they may exceed the limit on enriched uranium, in a way to put pressure on europe and other countries to lighten the sanctions, or at least not toughened them. they do not want to go above that level if they can use it as a way to get the europeans of being more supportive of their economic needs.
economicsthe issue is and if they can avoid tightening of sanctions or even get loosening, that would be a positive thing to help their economy. that is what they are after. the u.s. is trying to put pressure on iran and others. andcine: how much focus worried do you have of peace in the region? robert: i think the iranians at this point want to demonstrate they do have, primarily through their surrogates, the ability to put pressure on various american interests in the region without crossing the line that would cause the u.s. to take retaliatory action of a military nature, that would make their economic plate worse. each one is playing a game at the margins of not wanting to
over disrupt the situation, but also demonstrating they both have power to exert in various ways without going to a confrontation. francine: do we look at it percentage wise? we are running out of time. abert: the big danger is miscalculation, but if they play it like they are playing now, they will avoid a confrontation. other countries do not want the closed and they do not want a disruption of oil. francine: robert hormats, kissinger associates vice chair. this is bloomberg. ♪
