2:01 pm
negative today to this morning but have since then recovered the losses of donald trump saying that china was willing to negotiate to middle income to a deal i feel that at this point of time the market is ready to grab hold of any positive news coming on this front because they have taken a beating for the past few months as far as the u.s. china this feud is concerned and even if it comes from highly unreliable from there is sort of the loss of confidence in the way both parties are dealing with the trade war in fact one source of imago that the best we. could ensure a market stable stable lutie is by staying quiet all right our markets correspondent at the frankfurt stock exchange for us thank you. now to one of the other big topics on the agenda at the g. 7 summit as we mentioned trump is already also made remarks on iran and tehran's
2:02 pm
foreign minister made a surprise appearance on the sidelines of the meeting after being invited to barretts by the french trump tonight reports that he had been in the dark about this saying he had approved the move. but that is far is a red is concerned. that was with great respect i spoke to president roh yesterday. and you were he was doing and i approve whatever he was doing and i thought it was fine and i think it's too soon to be i don't want to be. i said i don't want to be great but it's sure to be telling to meet with the it's going to be a great thing for a great potential all right let's go back to gary and berates a garret you know we've seen such as collating tensions between the u.s. and iran and the french move here was really to address some of those tensions and we are just hearing there are some positive words perhaps from trump on iran how is that being received. well sumi the president's here really
2:03 pm
confirms what we have heard before from other world leaders that including angle america that actually there was agreement that's tensions with iran should be east french diplomats when he went a step too far to say that the french president had to have a mandate to pick up diplomatic relations in order to achieve that goal but overall there was agreement and now the american president has confirmed that he's on the same page and so german chancellor in a common press conference with the american president also just look at it's still a long way to go but very positive signals here from b a it's very carrick's day they will come back to you again in just a moment with the iranian foreign minister in berets iran is looking to defuse tensions with the u.s. after it pulled out of the 2015 international nuclear chord and the u.s. is applying a policy of maximum pressure that includes economic sanctions. as
2:04 pm
a topic has been looking into what that means for ordinary iranians. the economic heart of the iranian capital beats in the bizarre at 1st glance it seems to be bustling here. but looks can be deceiving. has traveled all the way from islam to seven's fabrics but business is slow today. and i was a move to 2 inches. this is one of the most important parts of the bazaar this is where clothes and textiles are part and sold this area is known worldwide as the trade hall but as you can see it's almost empty it shows you how badly the economy is doing right now hardly anyone comes here. to see nice. some days many traders don't make a single sale u.s. sanctions the depreciation of the local currency and now the standoff in the persian gulf have all taken their toll. hopes for fresh negotiations
2:05 pm
between the u.s. and iran while for another it was revealed almost alone we have to solve our problems and make peace with the rest of the world. we live in a time of communication you can't close the doors to the outside world just as many traders here share that opinion but by no means all of them the constant uncertainty has made people wary and tired many believe a new deal with the u.s. under donald trump is no longer possible. there should be a war we want war then at least we'll know where we stand for better or worse. more than a year since the us pulled out of the nuclear deal such sentiments have become more commonplace. i set off to discover what people think in other parts of the city.
2:06 pm
i'm not surprised to hear words like these down here in the south of tehran where views have always been watch additional and more conservative but is the mood all over the capital shifting to find out let me take you to the north of tehran but clocks tick differently. i stopped to visit a man with been following the situation in iran very closely. i want to know what effect all of this has on the political mood in the country there was restriction actually was elected on an agenda of dialogue and engagement with the world to settle differences on the nuclear issue and other issues but now that you know the nuclear file and the j.c. is not there because of in terms of u.s. withdrawal and other parties iran complains that they are not living up to their commitments it is basically radicalizing the general public which was pro in gauge
2:07 pm
amount at electing a government that was calling for engagement with the world now it is turning the other way around. us come to the northern part of the city to hear what people have to say it's mostly young well educated and well to do iranians who live here they voted for president rouhani and celebrated his commitment to the nuclear deal nobody here wants to see war. they should make friends and be done with it. or want to help us we should be friends with the whole world and work together so we can all move forward. or maybe i've given up hope 1st our regime has to change. more or regime change the political viewpoints into iran has become more extreme in both directions. all right back to barracks and character matters now where as we said iran is that one
2:08 pm
of the big big topics on the agenda this weekend garrick we're seeing that a rainy and are eager to diffuse at least some of them some of the tensions that have escalated over the past few months it seems that leaders this weekend haven't been able to agree on much of anything so how reliable are these statements from trump on iran saying that it's going to be a time to meet with iran it's going to be a great thing for the country that would signify an important step and that would signify an important step and i think the point is at the end of the day it's it's really difficult to say what to make of statements when donald trump just now in a press conference is that we more or less agree on a conclusion regarding iran and let me give you the traders as another example here i have been reporting in the past 2 days on the american president and his opinion on trade relations with china and it's started out with the president having
2:09 pm
regrets or 2nd thoughts about escalating relations with china then the white house came along and said what the president actually meant is that he would like to poor more oil into the fire he wanted to he regrets not being tougher with china and today the president has said he's a he's close to a deal and china is a great partner so it really difficult to say which statement is actually the real one whether it's iran or economic relations we'll we'll just have to wait and see what actually comes out of the talk well garrick it seems like one topic that the leaders there seem to have agreed on is that they want to help brazil fighting the ongoing fires in the amazon what are you expecting to see on that today. exactly the french president said at least they're nearing an agreement regarding the amazon rain forest so no firm commitment however yet but the agreement for c.v.s. it's a draft paper yet it's for c's technical support monetary support for the presumed
2:10 pm
government in fighting these fires and german chancellor angela merkel that once the fires are out a reforestation programme could be supported so a number of ideas and a number of potentially tangible results that could out of come out of this g 7 meeting you and b. are it's all right it is gary marcus reporting for us thank you very much. as we just heard their g 7 leaders are concerned about those fires in brazil and they are urging the president also now to take stronger action he has now deployed the army to help contain the blazes but it is struggling to make progress. after weeks of raging fires still they'd burn the smoke choking its way across brazil affecting the lives of millions of people. who probably know it's not good it blocks your nose there's
