from helena home free good to have you with us in washington german chancellor angela merkel has held talks with u.s. president donald trump now it was the second face to face meeting between the two americas first trip to washington since being reelected she's trying to persuade trump to stay in a landmark nuclear deal with iran which he has threatened to pull out of it was just one issue where differences between them a proving difficult to bridge. as chancellor merkel met president trump at the white house the focus was on style as well as substance. after a frosty first meeting last spring in washington this time there were signs of a thaw no handshakes person on this occasion and there were kind words from
president trump that we have a really great relationship and we actually have had a great relationship right from the beginning but some people don't understand that but we understand it and that's what's important but very extraordinary woman and it's an honor to have you at the white house for people. but the cordial tone couldn't hide differences on the issues at hand trump has threatened to pull the u.s. out of the iran nuclear deal once to save it. does this agreement is anything but perfect it would not solve all of the problems of iran is one piece of the may say one building block that we can improve upon the among all phone con on the issue of trade got no assurances that the trump would continue to exempt the e.u. from steel and aluminum tired of states instead trump bemoaned the u.s. trade deficit with the european union. it's been unfair and i don't blame the chancellor and i don't blame germany i don't even blame the european union i blame
the people that preceded me for allowing this to happen. there's no way we should have a trade deficit of one hundred fifty one billion dollars mean nato spending trump revived an old grievance with europe and we're protecting europe and yet we pay by far more than anybody else the nato is wonderful but it helps europe more than it helps us and why are we paying the vast majority of the costs thank you very much everybody even though macas meeting with trump lasted only a few hours it followed a three day visit by french president emanuel not home neither leader was able to get trump to change course on iran or trade it's a sign transatlantic ties could remain troubled. well joining me to discuss this further now is nicole and then that she's an associate fellow at the council on foreign relations now nicole no actual achievements that we can necessarily put off ingrown at the moment perhaps a warm up in a relationship between merkel and trump
a mugging how significant is that woman reception to the transatlantic relationship it's certainly very important because you know he reaches alts in a rather constructive atmosphere and if the mood and the atmosphere is guided by a more positive spirit that already helps that at the end of the day this visit will be viewed on the basis off the successes and the chancellor had very concrete ideas of what she wanted to achieve in this meeting and we have to see young may second if she reach the goal for example with the exception of the your opinion from the terrorists u.s. it's going to impose yes let's pick up on that a little bit more because you mentioned the exemptions the e.u. when it comes to tariffs there was also the iran nuclear deal that was a conversation that the leaders were keen to have as well because we also have sort of course the french president a man who i might call go to washington before machall needa back home manage to
draw out commitments on these issues to deceive. a you have any leverage going. you know sometimes the process is a process where certain steps have to be taken one after another and the visit of micro prepared the ground for further negotiations and what i thought was very interesting about the visit of merkel is that she admitted that the nuclear deal is far from perfect one of the issues is said you know it has a certain time limit to it and the other issue of the u.s. is complaining about is that the ballistic missile program is not part of the deal and she said we have to improve the deal but it's a good base to further negotiate and this is the european position they consider the deal as a big success for europe and they also see it in strengthening the more reformist policy in iran so for for the u.s. president to listen to the european leaders and to understand we're trying to
understand what they have what they can put on the table is an important step right now when we look at the visits of merkel and michael can you see a kind of game plan emerging from these two and how they deal with trump absolutely i mean one of the positive signs that came from the two visits was the european union now wants to show we are we stand together now we speak with one for it's you know a criticism that has been heard over the years over and over again and the telephone exchange between my call and. on friday morning already showed that they are really you know working hand and hand the results however we don't know what the outcome will be and that is still to play for vote from the german council on foreign relations thank you for your insights. international community is praising the leaders of north and south korea for working to formally end the state of war between a countries this comes sixty five years after the end of fighting in the korean war

capital pyongyang this autumn. in south korea reaction to the summit was mixed the unity image could symmetry that it would be great if reunification were possible but if not at least i hope that by declaring an end to the korean war we can live in peace. yeah i think i can for elderly people like us who experienced the korean war it is hard to trust north korea because of its past behavior can we really trust them it would be great if we could think of was the most important thing. in the north the state controlled media was upbeat. one hour north and south korea confirmed the common goal of realizing a nuclear free korean peninsula through complete denuclearize ation. but despite the groundbreaking summit a history of failed peace or times has some critics wary of the north commitment
