5:02 pm
on leyla iraq it's a pleasure to have you with us. u.s. president donald trump is wrapping up his visit to china he renewed calls on beijing to ramp up economic pressure on north korea to end its nuclear weapons program while he met with his chinese counterpart chief being as part of this first tour of asia as president all china's dazzling display of friendship appears to have softened mr trump's position on the country's trade measures which he once described as one sided rather than a problem president trump now appears to view china as 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
5:03 pm
the increasing threat from north korea a strong young's closest ally beijing is seen as a best bet to rein in an increasingly defiant north korea be doing to help us along with the menace of north korea and. we've had two committees discussions 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 the do business with north korea over ninety percent of pyongyang's trade is with beijing. but president xi made no new commitments saying his country would continue to improve u.s. china relations. challis holds and china is willing to work with the
5:04 pm
united states to enhance cooperation and properly manage differences in the spirit of mutual respect and mutual benefit. with. 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. are all the friendlier town is a far cry from the tough approach donald trump took during his run for president and to help explain what's behind that is that channel very warm welcome us a she's a journalist and fellow at the robert bosh foundation she covered china as a correspondent as well for. is there a very warm welcome donald trump significantly dialing down his anti china our rhetoric very taking the tough out of tough love what's behind that it was really noticeable to the point that their joint statement delivering the remarks from both president trump and president xi one of the remarriage reporters actually shouted
5:05 pm
out do you still think china is raping the united states so you will recall that he used language that strongly during his campaign well for one now that he's president somebody has informed him that the united states actually does need china on board to lean on north korea something that he had said earlier expressed that america could do a lot of things on its own when he was campaigning so that's number one the other thing is that president trump seems to have developed a pretty good relationship with president xi jinping or so he says and i think that this is a president that really values his personal relations with world leaders and he has said many times on twitter and in front of journalists that he has a good relationship with she he likes she and so that could also play a part in his to tamp down rhetoric or it well to that point this new kind of bromance that he's touting has it helped you know resolve some key issues between the u.s. and china that remains to be seen out of this trip to china we're not seeing any
5:06 pm
major announcements on the chinese side in terms of their commitment to lean more on north korea we've just heard president trump say that we will see changes and the chinese certainly have been have been stricter on north korea in the past few months they've made it very difficult for they pretty much barred joint ventures between china and north korean companies so we are seeing action from the chinese whether it is because of u.s. pressure or whether because the chinese are starting to realize that it is a growing liability when kim jong un follett files his missiles is in. another issue altogether are and now of course a person ahead of this visit said he was going to focus on trade and on north korea meanwhile his counterpart said while taiwan is actually quite important for us it tells little bit more about that i think that was really interesting that president xi brought this up a to a certain extent of the policies of both the u.s. and china on taiwan has been
5:07 pm
a pretty it hasn't changed much over the last few years over decades frankly and so for president xi to bring this up i think there is perhaps from the chinese side a sense that there's a window of opportunity for the u.s. to change its position mainly because the state department is poorly staff to trump has not filled a lot of key positions on asia and perhaps there's a view that they can convince trying to say something off the cutting off the cuff rather and provide a diplomatic concession we saw that actually with u.s. secretary of state rex tillerson when he went to visit beijing he actually read a statement that was almost word for word the kind of language that the chinese would use it there was a sense that the americans were just handed a piece of paper and they had just read the statement melissa challenge from the robert bush just foundation thank you so much for talking to us. and the u.s. deal maker in chief won't be leaving am to have a carrot has that side of the story that's right u.s.
5:08 pm
president donald trump and his chinese ground of cheating be announced bilateral deals worth two hundred fifty billion u.s. dollars the two leaders seem to get on well but looking more closely relations between washington and china all that cozy and the possible trump repeatedly used beijing of unfair trading practices and a threatened china with tariffs let's have a look at a couple of figures last year the u.s. exported goods worth one hundred and sixteen billion u.s. dollars to china because many u.s. companies now when affect so that the u.s. imported about four times that value of goods from that. if you look at chinese foreign direct investment in the u.s. it hit forty six billion u.s. dollars in twenty sixteen but so far under donald trump it has dropped significantly now while trump is known to criticize the u.s. china's trade imbalance he doesn't blame china for it here's what he said in a speech to business leaders in beijing. the united states and china will have
5:09 pm
a more prosperous future if we can achieve a level economic playing field right now unfortunately it is a very one sided and unfair one but but i don't blame china. after all. who can blame a country for being able to take advantage of another country for the benefit of its citizens i give china great credit well let's dig a little deeper into the details of these deals and let's cross over to the us to daniel cope our financial correspondent in frankfurt it all sounds very impressive two hundred fifty billion dollars of deals but after those deals as good as they sound to be. yes sounds very interesting i just remember a few weeks ago when donald trump was heavily criticizing china for their
5:10 pm
production surplus when it came mostly when it comes mostly to the steel production he was even asking china to close down some of their steel facilities now two hundred fifty billion dollar investment it's really seems that those true are true new big bodies but when you really talk to experts and analysts about this they are not really believing that those deals are going to happen they are calling this kind of more symbol that that we're pretty much exchange today in many cases those are just kind of like i'm on a binding letters and intense but nothing really else is going to happen when you talk though about how the effect of today's trading we did see an impact on this for example when you talk about companies those shares were actually rising after this latest news. open frankfurt that thank you. about small
5:11 pm
business a bit later in the show versus back to late i think your guarantee the united nations says seven million yemeni could face starvation and death aid isn't allowed into the country all this dire warning comes at a time when the saudi led coalition backing the government has tightened its air land and sea blockade around yemen the u.n. says that if the blockade isn't listed yemen will face the largest famine the world has seen for many decades. conditions for yemenis have been dire for months now they're even worse. the united nations says more than a third of the population has barely any access to food supplies the u.n. emergency relief coordinator appealed to the international community there will not be like the famine which cost two hundred fifty thousand people their lives in somalia in twenty eleven. it will be the largest famine the world to see
5:12 pm
for many decades with millions of victims there's almost no access to clean water and cholera outbreaks have become commonplace a civil war has been raging in yemen since twenty fifteen a saudi led coalition has been trying to fight back who the rebels with aerial attacks on monday the coalition closed all entry points to the country allegedly to prevent weapons from being smuggled to the rebels. the border closures are in retribution for this who is the missile attack on saudi soil seen here on saudi television. the u.n. and fifteen aid organizations have called on the coalition to end the blockade and allow the delivery of desperately needed emergency supplies. well earlier we spoke to reject me or mcgoldrick he is the un humanitarian coordinator in yemen he joined us from the capital sanaa and told us about the problems getting aid to the worst affected areas. at the moment other the ships are on the way and the trucks on the
5:13 pm
way as well right now the borders a lot of a lot of the sea is blocked so bringing more goods into the harbors will be difficult and the hours of the biggest police will be bringing foodstuffs and medical staffs and so what we need to do is get those ports open back up again we have to deal with the out and borders open which is good but that other course of the country which so the bulk of the population or died up or in the worst courses of what we used was primarily and we need to keep those or so on to continue to feed the people we need to feed and serve the people of color and others but the same time to learn results of your bill as well because we bring millions across the borders and anything that interrupts our supply to a very fragile population make search or more difficult. jim colored there speaking to us earlier about the situation in yemen are what we want to tell you now about some of the other stories making news around the world syrian troops and allied forces have retaken control of the town of a comment so-called islamic states last major stronghold in the country this
5:14 pm
footage that you're seeing right now leased by the syrians a military is said to show soldiers close to the town near the border with iraq syria's he says it's now fighting the last remaining pockets of iowa's fighters in the country's eastern desert. officials in india's capital are restricting the use of cars in the city delhi is in the grip of thick toxic smog residents and dirt a third day of hazardous pollution levels authorities say they will block commercial trucks from entering the capital and raise parking fees to encourage the use of public transport. macam land parliament's speaker and five lawmakers have appeared before space supreme court in madrid they're facing charges of rebellion and sedition for their roles in staging a band referendum on catalonia independence last month they could face jail time as a preventative measure while the investigation continues. prosecutors in the german
5:15 pm
city of oldenburg say a former nurse is now suspected of killing more than one hundred people far more than previously thought neil sage is serving a life sentence for murdering patients by injecting them with a deadly medication investigators now believe he may have killed an additional eighty four patients if he's found guilty of these additional beds it would make him one of the nation's most prolific serial killers. well it's a case that has rattled many in germany w w's simon young can tell us more about this simon else is suspected of killing more than one hundred people how could a nurse kill that many patients without anybody noticing well it seems that the reason is that the other staff working at the hospitals where this man operated didn't say anything and that was the the main problem there were suspicions about
5:16 pm
this man on one of the wards. where he worked in intensive care ward deaths went up by fifty eight percent while he was on duty and that was known and in another case he was even caught by a colleague preparing to administer a non-prescribed drop to one of the patients so the work but in spite of that he was given a good reference when he moved to another job prosecutors say that if those in charge had acted then deaths would certainly have been avoided and indeed in there is already a case going on where six employees of one of the hospitals are standing trial for causing death by negligence ok tell us a little more assignment about how the tales of the additional deaths came to light . you know police have gone through hundreds of patient records looking
5:17 pm
for. links to this man and suspicious activity whether drugs that shouldn't have been administered were given to patients they've exhumed one hundred thirty bodies would you believe a huge investigation the oldenburg police chief has said you know this goes way beyond imagination and clearly police have not expected to following this many cases of murder and indeed niels h. is germany's worst serial killer in post-war times could more cases turn up well it seems there are least five cases where he's still being investigated where the police want to do more investigations there are also some of the patients who were buried in turkey where the masons have not yet taken place so if you put that together and there may be some deaths that police say will never be known so the
5:18 pm
final figure could be higher even than what we've heard today right salmaniya reporting thank you you're watching the revenues we saw a lot more to tell you about here is what's ahead protesters in berlin are sending a message to the government that climate change kills but the issue is proving a real sticking point in germany's coalition talks. but first the e.u. ministers failed to reach an agreement on a new five year license for a controversial weed killer what's the hold up cart hold of as as usual diverging interests the stalemate comes just weeks before the current license for life so it expires that we've killer is vital to the industrial farming methods that put everything from sugar to bread on the dining table supporters say it's both cheap and easy to use critics say it's not one hundred percent proven that it does not pose a risk to health risks to your. this is how some people in vision the e.u.'s
5:19 pm
relationship with like the things they accuse the bloc of being in bed with a chemical maker months on toe. studies on the link between life estate and cancer have come to differing conclusions in twenty fifteen the world health organization said that we kill or probably causes cancer a un study and one sponsored by monsanto came to different conclusions life estate is the most widely used weed killer in the world some farmers in europe say they can't do without us. we cannot run a system like this where we're growing public crops. to keep the fields green right for the winter we cannot do that we are going to say we can come in here straight off to harvest the power and then it was brown a would suffer the loss of the soil . so mcconnell missed say a ban could have a major economic impact. so in the event of a. large shift in terms of the composition you case fields
5:20 pm
shift away from wheat potential twenty percent decline and fifty percent decline in arable crops for all what we see then is that farmers incomes will fall by the chain if before cost one hundred forty million pounds but those who oppose life is sacred jacked such arguments they say that when it comes to health regulators cannot afford to take any risks. so a very controversial issue there are many questions have to be taken into consideration first of all is there real health risks for consumers but also are the livelihoods of farmers under threat can or should modern agriculture live without kill us let's cross over to do catherine martin who is following the negotiations in brussels and joins us from there. why are they are now able to agree. well the main problem here in europe is really that there is we have
5:21 pm
conflicting studies and conflicting conflicting signs whether to life as it is harmful are not and in europe there two kinds of schools of thoughts how to deal with that difficult issue there is one group saying in doubt leave it out and the other group is saying in doubt leave it in and it in addition to that the to one of the main farming nations germany and france they are not on the same page which makes it really difficult to reach a majority francis against germany is more industry friendly of a have germany as a industry location and as a giant buyer and the potential merger with one's hand in the early two thousand and eighteen just we can assume that there is a vital interest to use for sat still on the market so it is a slippery is a slippery slope in your eyes and there are some heavy lobbying going on behind the scenes. yes of course it is but it is not only one center this is the biggest
5:22 pm
lobbying group in europe are still of the european farmers they say they really are afraid with the glaive for said than that they will have heavy losses regarding the production and the exports but they already also say regarding the consumerist if they don't have they will say they will take another weed killer and this might be even more harmful for the consumer has and this is a big issue so without guy for said it's not without pesticides and this is their point. in the brussels thank you. and that's only a business for now speculators thank you so much climate change is proving to be a very contentious issue during a coalition talks here currently taking place in berlin the parties are trying to form a new coalition government but they have very different visions for reducing germany's a c o two emissions but despite germany's much feed it transition to a low carbon economy it will miss its national twenty twenty climate target by
5:23 pm
a very wide margin while climate experts in germany have now sent a warning that reducing carbon emissions must be made a top priority. climate change kills that's the message from these protesters in front of the heist right now one quarter of the world's population will die prematurely because of environmental pollution climate change is leading to flooding and famine is increasingly common but leading climate experts in berlin are warning that if germany does not phase out coal and reduce its c o two emissions it won't achieve its twenty twenty emissions reduction target helped in soft i've seen this happen so often if someone promises what our pollution reduction will be by twenty thirty. then the process slows down and someone announces it's too late and we're no longer able to reach our goal. germany
5:24 pm
is transitioning to a low carbon economy one that will increasingly rely on renewable energy but it looks set to fall short on its goals to reduce energy consumption and increase energy efficiency. germany has made huge strides in the area of climate protection germany has made renewable energy affordable and that's why it's booming around the world but new germany has done practically nothing in the last few years it remains bound to old technologies especially coal and that's making it a problem for germany to be taken seriously at the international level. after the latest round of exploratory coalition talks the green party has now agreed to compromise on some of its key environmental issues it wanted to shut down the twenty most polluting coal fired power plants in germany by twenty twenty and ban the internal combustion engine by twenty thirty the greens now say these goals are
5:25 pm
unrealistic. the last night spots that next year is the world cup in russia will be decided on a frown. except days of action on thursday croatia host greece in the first match of a two legged play off for one of the european places while switzerland travel to northern ireland and incredibly the swiss failed to qualify automatically despite a run of nine straight wins in the group stage. 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 buy in munich winger gerrard on ship here e finds it almost comical. 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.
5:26 pm
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 their toes when it's common to into the big moments and. well so it's you know it's a position that we're comfortable with but there's also been situations you know within the group or with other issues with. the underdogs aren't short of confidence northern ireland have lost only once in the last ten competitive home matches that two world champions germany. two stuff science fiction a british inventor has designed a flying suit and sort straight into the record books richard browning managed to fly across a lake using a body controlled jet engine power suit a couple of said backs and then it was her time lucky as he reached fifty one
