fight the american presence previous criticisms also on the program. another high profile resignation from britain's government this time over an authorized meetings in israel kept on minister reason i can tell you that may explain the shaky hold on power after this latest shock we'll bring you the latest from the. i'm phil guy welcome to the program u.s. president donald trump has called on china to increase economic pressure on north korea to end its nuclear weapons program he's meeting his chinese counterpart xi jinping in beijing as part of his first tour of asia china's grand display of friendship appears to have softened mr trump's stance on the country's trade practices and other contentious issues rather than i problem president not pissed at you china is one of the world's great problem solvers. the second day of

u.s. president donald trump's visit in china began with pomp and ceremony. chinese president xi jinping once again pulled out all the stops. but behind closed doors the two leaders were faced with thorny issues among them the increasing threat from north korea a strong young's closest ally beijing is seen as a best bet to rein in an increasingly defiance north korea. with the menace of north korea and. we've heard from a discussion in there today and i think things will happen i believe things will happen. the positive tone taken by trump marks a departure from his previous criticism of china. in september north korea launched its latest ballistic missile and president trump threatened to cut off ties with all countries that do business with north korea over ninety percent of pyongyang's
12:03 pm
trade is with beijing. but president xi made no new commitments saying his country would continue to improve u.s. china relations. though. china is willing to work with the united states to enhance cooperation and properly manage differences the spirit of mutual respect and mutual benefit. the visit has so far been a friendly one between two of the world's most powerful leaders but it isn't clear if they'll make real progress on the most pressing issues. let's take a closer look with melissa chan she's a journalist and fellow at the robert to bush to shift oh she's also worked in china as a correspondent for al-jazeera welcome to the doubly so donald trump appears to have dialed down he's anti china rhetoric why well so you'll recall that he even on
12:04 pm
the campaign shell said that china was raping the united states this is a huge to change and shift in terms of his tone now one thing is that before he became president he probably didn't realize that he needed china so much on the north korea issue so that explains part of the dialing down the other thing is this is a president that really values his one on one with lation ships with other world leaders and he's clearly taken to president xi jinping so i think that might have something to do with it so given that has there been any real progress on key issues well you know they say that there is a big two hundred fifty billion dollar trade deal that they are not or rather a business deal with business leaders from the u.s. and the chinese that's been something that they've announced right but substantively a lot of these agreements that amount to two hundred fifty billion dollars of their nonbinding so we actually have to see in a few years' time whether any of these things matter now we have the boeing
12:05 pm
contract that was signed as well. the north korea thing nothing that's really come out other than to say that they're both working on the issue again a change in terms of the tone from president trump is that he's talking about collective action he's talking about the need for china to pressure north korea these are things that are very different from his previous rhetoric where he really felt and expressed that the united states could go and out and do things alone in the world. trade north korea were president trumps priority this president has said that talking warm is the most important issue in relations between the two countries why this is really interesting that this is actually come to certain extent to the chinese have been observing u.s. foreign policy the fact of the matter is that the state department hasn't filled a lot of spots frankly rex tillerson the u.s. secretary of state had gone to china earlier this year and there was a view that he had conceded on some diplomatic points probably because he didn't do
12:06 pm
his homework so to a certain mind i wonder whether president xi is raising the taiwan issue to see if he could get the u.s. to change its long time position on the one china policy because it's important to remember as you say that lots of positions within the state department remain unfilled and if this was apparently part of president trump strategy that we need a smaller government these are two very different men leading the world's biggest economies talk turned to day do do we have any sense of how the they are getting on personally well president trump appears to believe that he has a great relationship with president xi jinping i say appear because she jean king has been a lifelong politician this is a guy who's father was you know involved in the revolution in china and he has been really in many ways training himself to fill this role his entire life this is a very very political savvy individual and we have president trump who has expressed
12:07 pm
a desire to be president of the united states since the eighty's but. we really hasn't had that kind of training so i think in many ways you get these two in a room and it's a bit of an uneven playing field i think that you're seeing that president trump is really taken with the pomp and circumstance the chinese have rolled out to him and he he really is influenced by that easily a whether president xi feels the same way we really don't know what he personally thinks he is just playing his role as a child from the rubble bush foundation thank you. for the government of britain's prime minister theresa may is sinking deeper into crisis with the second resignation of a high profile minister and a week international development secretary pretty patella stepped down after admitting she held an authorised meetings with israeli politicians during what was supposed to be a holiday in israel the prime minister's defense secretary resigned last week following allegations of sexual misconduct on top of this mrs major also struggling with her country's divorce talks with the european union. let's get more from t.w.

correspondent beckett to mass who joins us from london welcome back it's a pretty patel's resignation follows the departure of defense secretary michael fallon last week i watched trouble is teresa mayes government. well treason may has been under a lot of pressure since the elections earlier in the year when she came back and only had a minority in the parliament so that was the first blow and now we've seen two resignations we've seen strong criticism for boris johnson the foreign secretary after a series of gaffes and pretty patel the international development secretary effectively doing some sort of freelance policy on her own without really intended telling anyone and that presents a picture of reason may really not being in charge and over the british government being anything but stable and in the words of one commentator somehow on mood even
12:09 pm
. so we have the latest round of blacks in negotiations beginning that day and think tomorrow how will they be affected by teresa mayes domestic political problems well obviously from a brussels perspective it would be much preferable to negotiate with a strong government where they know that they have a real mandate that they have the country behind on the party behind them and the situation in reality here in the u.k. is really the complete opposite however i do think that these especially this round of negotiations will not be affected because the development secretary doesn't really have anything to do with these negotiations and brussels it's going to be interesting who's going to be her replacement driesum is under a lot of pressure and has been for quite some time from the years and all parties those people who advocate hard and strong and clean bret said and pretty patel the development secretary had to resign was one of them now the pressure is there to
12:10 pm
replace her with somebody else who's really enthusiast about brecht said so this pressure from those people who say no deal with brussels is better than a bad deal let's get out as quick as we can and as clean as we can this is not going to subside this doesn't mean that reason may is going to resign immediately but i think there are very few people here in the u.k. you think that she's going to stay for another time for another full term parliamentary to get mass in london thank you. to some of the other stories making news around the world the catalan parliament speaker and five lawmakers here before spain's spain supreme court in madrid now facing charges rebellion and sedition for their roles in staging a band referendum catalans independence last month they could face jail as a preventative measure while the investigation continues. police in colombia have seized twelve tons of cocaine president juan manuel santos announced the hole on

it's not that belfast isn't a nice place to land but this is not where the swiss want to be after a strong qualifying round their points total most years would easily qualify for the finals not this year former byron munich winger gerrard on schick heerey finds it almost comical. this is the flu it's a strange feeling to have twenty seven points from our ten games and find ourselves in the playoffs of course we were disappointed but that's football. meanwhile northern ireland are relishing this match up if you are giving them a chance against the swiss but this group of overachievers has a shot at getting northern ireland to their first world cup finals in thirty two years. you know over the years we always sort of hopping on the dogs when this come in the into the big moments and. you know it's a position that we're comfortable with but there's also been situations you know within the group where we thought that. the underdogs aren't short of confidence
