actually stood now technology is helping give new generations a glimpse of the past. but 1st scientists in italy have fertilized the eggs of 2 northern white rhinos it's part of an effort to prevent the species from going extinct the 2 females are thought to be the only rhinos of their type left on the planet their eggs were inseminated with frozen sperm from 2 northern white bulls who died now the scientists are waiting to see if the attempt has been successful. this on assuming laboratory. the site of a last ditch effort to save the northern white rhino. were thank you with word. from 24025 getting the eggs was an international operation and it wasn't easy the female rhinos found 2 in the gene were in kenya and were not willing donors. and it's far from sure that the
4:08 pm
operation will succeed. when you're doing something for the 1st time served by only most of the time it goes wrong before it gets old get killed before you get that i eventually get. the scientists won't know right away if the fertilization succeeded if it does the eggs will be implanted in surrogate rhino mothers with all the risks the lab cofounder had some advice for preserving biodiversity for another specific don't get to the last 2 in the real world before you go to use this technology the world will know more in 10 days when the fertilization results are in. but if they give up on now and life see continued their perfect start to the season with their 2nd straight win it in frankfurt spirits were high in leipsic even before kick off after the club announced that streicher t.-mo vanna is staying put. he's old contract was set to run out at the end of the season the
4:09 pm
new one will keep him at the club until 2023. it seems he's wages get a healthy boost and he now has a 30000000 euro buy he should have been eager to define i never said i wouldn't want to stay here it was always clear to me that life sick would play a major role and i think that by extending my contract it shows that i like playing here and i do think i was feeling at. the news that he was staying at the club had the fans in ecstasy before kickoff. of the and so they were positively euphoric 10 minutes in when the home side took the laid for none other than team over was his 52nd goal in these 95th bundesliga appearance for the club an important one for him on this very special day was one nil to the
4:10 pm
hundreds saw. the next chance to celebrate didn't come until the 80th minute icing sation a volley by use of who survived 2 from the hosts was the danes the 1st of the season. frankfurt didn't let their heads hang out and 4th back to get one back for gonzalo patsy and she wasn't enough to grab a draw or. seek would celebrate their win. and of course. keep the team a very club. this year germany's marking 30 years since the fall of the berlin wall 3 decades on it's often no longer easy to distinguish where the west ended and the east began that is where technology steps . this tour group is traveling through time from the outside they're not moving at all but with their virtual reality goggles they're headed on
4:11 pm
a tour bus into the east berlin of the early 1980 s. so. that she. was dead it's. a city tour as a 3 dimensional panoramic experience courtesy of a computer said let's. see. what's it. called back to the present what's the verdict on top of a you really get immersed in it there were times when i forgot i was wearing the cargo that i took my. shirt that you really get to see the way it was in 3 d. my focus time if you forget where east and west are because the 2 just melt into one another and there it was clear you see buildings that you just walk past and say so that's what it was like so much quicker. the man behind this virtual journey through time as you want us all to born just before the berlin wall came down his company has discovered a nice market. is in kind of we're not
4:12 pm
a museum and we don't try to be we want to touch people through history to see it and think about it where's the wall millions of tourists asked the city answers it's gone this mission and you can tell say clearly unfortunately not a mile west the wall here. i don't see it i'll probably would expect especially here where someone visit you probably expect to see more of it. maybe not partly. when the city was reunited the wall was removed as fast as possible now 30 years later v.r. technology fills the gaps in memory. oh did you see that. peter costello has made his own time warp a free app for small. phones and tablets wherever the wall one stood he's built it back up the devices camera blends the world of today with the virtual berlin wall
4:13 pm
all thanks to the technology of augmented reality. you can see where the wall stood reborn as or the history concealed in these places are granted reality is perfect for that to make something visible that's no longer there fortunately long. as. the few original sections of the wall still standing can only tell part of the story technology takes care of the rest. seeing what a terrible time in our history that was with germany divided by the wall and so many people killed trying to escape using today's media to get a sense of those times is a good thing. travelling through time with an app than seeing how good it is that the real wall is long gone. thanks for watching news back with more news at the top of the hour but we'll leave you with images of a new record here over the weekend to the mexican city of weather had

a small village in rochester that and plant $111.00 tree is put every coal. on it they value in a male dominated society. a very special celebration of life. in 60 minutes. when the worst was rising people fight for some. money and when there's a flood the water comes up to your waist flows faster everyone but. the lack of water is an equally dangerous. give us the people. so they can plant crops and find new. floods droughts climate change become the main
4:17 pm
driver of mass migration. if you want. our climate exodus starts september 5th on g.w. . global 3000 thanks for joining us in guatemala gang warfare casts a shadow over daily life what does that mean for young people dreaming of a better future. a few months ago mozambique was devastated by a slight clone one region got off relatively lightly we find out why. but 1st we go to the u.s. where coal miners the suffering from a devastating disease their appeals for support of falling on deaf ears.
4:18 pm
whether cold minerals or metals for many a we humans have insisted on dredging our planet's resources the global mining industry earns around $615000000000.00 euros each year nearly the equivalent of the g.d.p. of switzerland the world's 20th largest economy yet few jobs there is dangerous as mining. and around $12000.00 miners worldwide lose their lives every year and those are just the official figures. what would that number be if illegal mines were taken into account mine workers often breathe in toxic particles or poisonous gases many suffer damage to their lungs. in the eastern part of the u.s. state of kentucky coal mining has long been a mainstay and here too it has
4:19 pm
a terrible impact on people's house. it's about 10 meters from the car to the house but for danny the short distance is torture. even a few steps leave him short of breath. for almost 20 years he worked in the coal mines of kentucky breaking up rock underground and breathing in coal dust. in dust mask barely protected him at some point his lungs will fail completely his daughter molly knows that that will be the end of him. just now. you know danny says he felt he had no choice if he hadn't agreed to work under those conditions he would have been out of a job. right now his lungs are functioning at less than 50 percent so they were from $43.00 to $43.00 if i had to even get to go get the phone you know we didn't
4:20 pm
have you know hours so it's only a few steps away but you know we can feel like. danny has been diagnosed with black lung disease at 45 he's no longer able to work with his income gone his family is close to financial ruin it's a fate shared by files of people in the area. in eastern kentucky coal mining has long been a mainstay of the economy in the past especially it was difficult to find any other work one former miner jimmy moore tells us most of the coal companies cut corners when it comes to installing ventilation he says they ignore regulations governing the levels of coal dust in mines he too has black lung. years if there were an week of week off work. and no the big.
4:21 pm
smile. goes into learns and a poor man has until. it's not safe i'm not going to work there there are somebody out there that want that got. around a 1st of all miners in kentucky will eventually be diagnosed with black lung in the past no one knew the exact numbers until brandon crumb started collecting the data in his clinic alone the radiologist has registered several 1000 cases since 2014 he says it's an epidemic to which are far attorneys have turned a blind eye for years. so this is actually a normal x. ray here and you can see that here is the ribs and dark in between is the. stage 3 is the worst sample perfusion yes this is where the law has been replaced
4:22 pm
by a significant issue with him for information associated with a black lung disease. unfortunately we are seeing all this disease and very young individuals made in their thirty's forty's but there seems to be some trends which including longer work hours and you are seeing more cases of progress of massive fibrosis or complicated disease than we ever have been in and states dr krumm sounded the alarm and kentucky reacted but not as expected a new state law says radiologists may no longer diagnose black lung disease now only poll monologist are allowed to assess diagnostic x. rays and there are only a handful of lung specialist in the whole state is furious. it was political you know i think i was probably fathered too much black lung disease on their stay worker's comp claims and they wanted me to stop or. the new law is likely to reduce the number of patients who receive a diagnosis and it will make it harder for them to get compensation on insurance
4:23 pm
claims all the federal benefits they would be entitled to. linda adams husband died of black lung 5 years ago the diagnosis was never in doubt but their insurance company is refusing to pay that claim playing for time before the courts and he said it's not quite so. tommy's that no matter what you do don't give up on by climate that's why he wanted done because he had all this other evidence and all this other evidence. and then that autopsy report came back and i said the doctor looked at it and made a start it was crazy this. here this guy that used to live in this next train wreck he has. this girl brother and. her day all this because 2 years ago when he. and her grandfather also.
4:24 pm
miners' families are fighting on multiple fronts against. an incurable disease and intransigent insurance companies and now many here feel the government has abandoned them to. a federal fund that was set up over 40 years ago to provide benefits for miners suffering from black lung disease has seen its budget slashed. that's because the fund is financed through a tax paid by the coal companies last year president trump half that tax. in 2016 voters in this region came out to vote for trump in droves because he promised to create new jobs and to make the coal industry great again the only way to bring back was to give the coal companies a good enough reason till they could communicate make money at it but they're making money up with young people they're going to have one in ramallah and
4:25 pm
it's just not rot. people feel betrayed by the coal mines the insurance companies the state and federal government. and all the while the epidemic continues. if you're sick especially if you're old you need someone to care for you in many affluent countries care homes are increasingly filling that role but these need to be staffed germany alone has a shortage of nearly 400000 care workers low pay puts many young people off now the problem has reached china and there the long running $1.00 child policy shares in the blame. when you are miss preparing her lunch the 67 year old has lived alone and have begun apartment since her husband died earlier this year only child has also passed away john's daughter lost her life in
4:26 pm
a car accident 15 years ago. i don't know what you're home i feel so helpless and the communist party used to say that each family was only allowed one child. and that the state would take care of us when we got old. and out and now that we are old and they're just not keeping their promise that we need a bit back. she doesn't want to think about what will happen in a few years when she can no longer take care of herself many aging chinese face an uncertain future more than 240000000 people aged over 60 live in the republic of china some projections say that by 2051 in 3 chinese will be old aged the reason goes back to china's one child policy which stood for over 30 years this led to a disproportionately aging population the law changed in 2016 to allow 2 children
4:27 pm
per couple. chinese tradition requires children to take in the aging parents and care for them and their own homes but that's becoming less feasible. maoism a privately run care home in the city of tianjin it's a 1st class facility with one camera for every patient. the top floor boasts an artificial garden. and residents can dance with the manager herself but this all comes at a high price as much as $3000.00 euros a month for most chinese pensioners this sum is astronomically high there are hardly any old people skaftason letty's in china and the few that exists have trouble finding qualified personnel. china's geriatric care market is developing at a rapid pace but still has huge deficits we need more professional caregivers
4:28 pm
quickly but the training takes a long time the gap is very large. even though the chinese could benefit from using retirement homes they're reluctant to do so. many prefer the traditional system of home care for the elderly. parents wanted to keep my grandparents in a home but they decided against it they might have wonderful living conditions and good care is providing my grandparents with spiritual support at home is more important. for the worse and if i'm healthy or live at home that iran will see whether or not my daughter's too busy we'll cross that bridge when we come to it right now i'm only 61. homes don't do enough for the physical and spiritual wellbeing of the people who live there i wouldn't live in an old people's home with you so mr. wang how jan has
4:29 pm
alzheimer's but hasn't had to move into a cafe a celebrity because she lives with her husband and receives care or hire him. her family has enough money to afford a carer i young shoe used to work in a care home where she was paid per patient but wages are higher and she has more time to take care of one her job. i like my work a lot and i'm very patient but i know what your money if one her child doesn't want to eat anything i just wait sooner or later she'll eat again it's my job to take good care of her because all she can do is lie in bed. as the population ages the number of people dependent on k. increases no one knows who will take care of patients with high needs in the future experts estimate the up to 10000000 extra care of us will be needed to meet demand in the coming years. i don't think china is ready
4:30 pm
the number of elderly people is rising rapidly. so the care system can't be expanded quickly enough to keep up. the only thing we can do is learn from countries with good care systems to reach young for example the u.s. and japan. that's what the government is trying to do there reforming nursing care insurance and opening up the market for caregiving to attract international investors but long term plans do not exist. the state pension system is also struggling projections from the chinese academy of social sciences a bleak in just 15 years the state pension fund could dry up pensions are barely enough to survive on when joanne receives 500 euros a month she's still paying off the bells from the cost of caring for her now
4:31 pm
deceased husband other chinese seniors rely on receiving care from their only child but $1.00 has to take care of herself. mozambique in march of this year it's almost impossible to tell where the ocean ends and land begins cyclometer i left entire regions under water more than $1000.00 people lost their lives the country is still suffering the effect. our reporter stephanie traveled down with his team 5 months after the event for our global ideas series. he visited the inland garagos center national park a wetland region that's helping the coast recover from the storm. the town of losing at the mouth of the plume way river when cycling a diet all through here in march floodwaters from the entire region flowed into the river the poem wave finds flooding the surrounding countryside houses were washed
4:32 pm
away including that of farmer philippe his entire harvest was wiped out. of the cycle and curry might be making good progress but when it hit it literally threw me back to square one i'm now starting from the bottom again point 0. things would have been even worse if it weren't for the gore and goes the national park this unique wetland landscape lies 140 kilometers up river like a sponge the vegetation in the network of streams and rivers there absorbed huge amounts of water dumped by the cyclon. marks down and as the chief ecologist at the park checks the water levels regularly. he says even today 5 months after the site clone the floodwaters are still draining out of the landscape and into the pool a river. in fact landscapes can play
4:33 pm
a tremendously positive buffering effect very generally kind of attenuate the extremes of weather the extremes of wind and the extremes of water and that's why we need those those big landscapes they also serve as a threat of war. or hosting by the diversity they're hosting systems that are effective for their functioning but this natural paradise is under threat on nearby mt goran goes the residents have cleared huge swathes of forest for farmland forest subacute regulate tree function absorbing and releasing water it was clear that if the deforestation continued many of the springs that sustain the wetlands would disappear. so 6 years ago the park administration came up with an idea instead of subsistence farming residents could help restore the forest by planting coffee along with hardwood trees to provide shade for the crops to thrive project manager
4:34 pm
see on our morning show there's a plantation with 250000 young coffee plants and hardwood saplings. if. there were almost no trees left here at all the whole place was totally exposed to the sun and now with the coffee in the trees we have 2 layers of shade if. current goes a coffee is already a success story more than $400.00 farmers are now growing the new crop that's nearly half the families in the region the park administration buys up the harvest at a guaranteed price those who are looking for an additional income can help with the processing of the beans the project is succeeding despite difficult conditions mozambique's civil war officially ended in 1992 but there have been flare ups at times between government troops and rebel forces. we had some problems at 2015
4:35 pm
and had to stop work because of the conflict but now everything's quiet and we can get on with our work. seeing that it is possible to produce coffee on mt. the community has embraced the idea that producing coffee replanting trees taking care of the forest and helping the environment. and the coffee beans are taken to the town of core and goes for roasting and packing while with their local men drops in to visit the center he's hopeful that the coffee will not only protect the environment but also help to promote reconciliation. fighters loyal to the rebel group renamo along holed up in. the hills and forced some farmers to join their ranks as a result there are townspeople who are wary of the farm it's probably go fire for the head of this project is a good thing it creates ties between mccarthy grows on the mountain on the
4:36 pm
processing plant here in town you know we're not affected by any conflict because the coffee farmers haven't been involved in the fighting this project improves relations between people in town and people up in the hills people say sunshine of you owe much to the very good since the start of the project farmers have planted more than 140 hector's of coffee and 50000 hardwood trees all the trees are native to mozambique the plan is to add another $150.00 hectors next year. if deforestation can be halted or reversed the wetlands of corn goes a national park will be preserved forests protect the park which in turn helps to protect people living in coastal areas as climate change continues well functioning ecosystems will become more important than ever. philippe has experienced many cycles before but he's noticed
4:37 pm
a change in recent years. seems to be getting worse year by. floods we had last year reached the porch of my house. this year reached my windows things are getting worse. but philippe has no plans to give up he's building a new house where his old one once stood will replace the mud walls with stones once he has the money maybe nature will spare him next time if not he's hoping the national park will protect him from the worst. and now from south east africa to central america guatemala has long been in broiled in a kind of civil war between enemy drug gangs the country has one of the highest murder rates in the world often even the police appear helpless to do anything. but
4:38 pm
what about ordinary citizens many hope to leave dreaming of a future in the u.s. or europe others up to stay determined to lead a decent life amidst the violence. johnnie alexander says if you work on the street you have to be a good judge of people not all are nice and you have to be able to deal with that. johnny is a star of freestyle soccer and he earns a living doing it. for almost a dollar that's good. he sometimes makes $12.00 a day. he's 21 and lives from hand to mouth as do many people in guatemala. half the population live in poverty work is hard to come by and many jobs pay poorly. johnny earns more than the minimum wage free styling on the streets for
4:39 pm
donations. he's often wondered if it might make sense to leave. studying here is too expensive i want to take europe by storm i think they'd respect my skills there of course everybody here dreams of going to the united states but i don't know that's very hard now. johnny has an important reason to stay his mother died in january and since then he's looked after his 2 younger brothers they live together in a small rented room there are lots of drug dealers in the neighborhood. they may not have a father or a mother but they do have a brother who can be an example to them so they become good people. it's not so easy to be a good person here poverty can lead to crime and violence. there are areas on the outskirts of guatemala city where not even the police like to go. out
4:40 pm
man however will not be deterred. he wouldn't want to be here after 5 pm it's too dangerous that's when the gangs come out and get down to business. and have team of volunteers talk to people in fight them to take part in activities such as sokka she's a courageous people get killed around here all the time. about 10 homicides are committed in guatemala every day. we meet some kids it's only afternoon but they're already high. and we encounter a gang member who tells us what happens when people are out of their heads. you want money to get high. you don't care if it's somebody who works hard or if they're poor you just want to hold a knife to their throat and take their money. and the gangs have lookouts
4:41 pm
monitoring their territory. another gangster boasts about his extortion racket. that if they don't want to pay we shoot them i say you don't want to pay ok fine i turn and leave and the others attack you. and that's that. the neighborhood is also full of trash. as team of planning a clean up campaign. it looks as if only private initiatives want to help. the failure of state institutions is one reason so many guatemalans want to seek a better life abroad most head north towards the united states after performing on the street all day johnny goes to school evening classes hosted by a nonprofit foundation it's a chance to learn something that might help him find a good job. on the way he meets his 2 younger brothers. they also come here to earn
4:42 pm
a bit of money with freestyle soccer they bear the scars to prove it. the road gets so hot it burns you. johnny is among the best in freestyle soccer. his brothers look up to him and hope to follow in his footsteps. i love you brother. johnny's doing a 3 month course in project management that includes brand development pricing labor costs strategy he was accepted into the program on the basis not so much of his grades as on his character because he's honest and clever but i didn't study hard at school and missed out on many opportunities so now i have to catch up. the foundation has connections to companies where students might one day get a job that could help keep young people from seeking their 40 and elsewhere like johnny who doesn't really want to leave.

are subsidized back home and that has let's through the a trade war between the 2 biggest economies in the world the question is how can you resolve it and there are 2 ways either you reform a multilateral organizations like the w t o or you go it alone and the way trump has spoken today about calming the conflict taking off the edge rather goes into the direction of a result in this with the dialogue and that is something the other world leaders would welcome all right garrick matters for us in berets will be coming back to you in just a moment. no the tick trade dispute between the u.s. and china has been rattling investors asian shares took a beating across the board china's hu and hit its lowest value in 11 years on onshore markets and a record low offshore hong kong's hang seng dropped more than 2 percent in its final hour of trading also following another weekend of protests in the city japan's nikkei ended the day down more than 2 percent european markets have been
4:51 pm
less pessimistic with early rises on germany's dax and let's get the latest on that front i should toss pandey our markets correspondent is at the frankfurt stock exchange for us hi actually tossed over the weekend we heard contradictory remarks from donald trump on china but today he appears trust struck a more positive note having held a conversation with china what are investors making of this well this sort cheering this announcement because the markets did open in the negative territory but have since then recovered the losses the markets at this point of time are this lapping up any positive news on this front even in these uncertain times even if it comes from a highly unreliable president but there is a. loss in terms of how these 2 board the bodies are dealing with the crisis the trade war and in fact i mean this has them on the best to be the best thing
4:52 pm
that president probably could do to ensure that there is stable it in the market is to keep quiet moderate our markets correspondent for us at the frankfurt stock exchange thank you. as we mentioned trump has also made remarks on iran at the summit and the iranian 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 models. but that is far is a red is concerned. that was with great respect i spoke to president roh yesterday. they were everything he was doing and i approved whatever he was doing how i thought it was for i think it's too soon to be i didn't want to be. i said i don't want to. break down but it's true to tell him to meet with it's going to be a great thing for him to have a great potential are right back to garrick and berets you know he's saying there
4:53 pm
time for a meeting soon which would be very significant and deescalated tensions how is that being received there. so me clearly the difficult diplomatic deadlock here between the united states and iran has not been completely resolved you know obviously but german chancellor angela merkel in a press conference with the american presidents that it is a big step forward and that now an atmosphere in which talks and dialogue is welcomed has been created and that is the result of a smart move that the french president here has made us diplomats here at the g. 7 called it in a viking a surprise guest the foreign minister of iran and in that way showing the american president that a dialogue is possible with iran everyone agreed prior to the arrival of the foreign minister from iran that one should try to seek
4:54 pm
a dialogue with iran so everyone on the same page here and that actually is a big step forward all right garrick stay right there will be back to you in just a moment. and 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 accord the u.s. is applying a policy of maximum pressure that includes economic sanctions to diffuse today's atop a 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 send a separate but business is slow today. as 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
4:55 pm
trade hall but as you can see it's almost empty it shows you how badly the economy is doing right. hardly anyone comes here. 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 between the u.s. and iran. 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 since 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
4:56 pm
a war we want war then at least we'll know where we stand for better or worse. more than a year since the u.s. 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. i'm not surprised to hear words like these down here in the south of tehran where views have always been more traditional 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 were on the administration i actually was elected on and agenda of dialogue and engagement with
4:57 pm
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 probably it at electing a government that was calling for gates went with the world now it is turning the other way around. i've 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
4:58 pm
to help us we should be friends with the whole world and work together so we can all move forward. so i have given up hope 1st our regime has to change. war or regime change the political viewpoints and tiran have become more extreme in both directions. all right so garrett we heard the voices of some iranians they're hoping for a deescalation because their economy is really struggling so how reliable then are these statements from trump on iran that's a good question zoom in and really you have to ask yourself that question particularly with comments when he said we more or less reached a conclusion on iran but what does that exactly mean a similar situation in world trade that right raised more than a couple of eyebrows here and be a ritz is when. 2 days ago we learned that the american president had 2nd
4:59 pm
thoughts about escalating the situation with china and then the white house came around and reinterpreted this that he's not to be correcting his policy toward china but that he is regretting not touring if you want more oil into the fire slapping tougher sanctions on china and today we announce that he is close to a deal with china are very happy about the situation so that makes it of course a difficult exactly working with that president but overall everyone is quite that for the moment at least we're on a positive track oh there have been a lot of mixed messages this weekend garrick and one thing that these leaders appeared that they could agree on is that they will want to help brazil fight the ongoing fires in the amazon what does come of that. that's right and it looks like this will become the most tangible results from this g. 7 meeting french president put environment top of the agenda particularly the
5:00 pm
situation in the amazon rain forest he now announced that the g 7 is very close to a briefing on the deal that would. send 20000000 in financial aid to the amazon rain forest providing money for water of 4 planes that can carry water extinguishing the fires and also then the german chancellor added that to do that allowing for reforestation which would be crucial then in those areas in the amazon so quite an action plan that the g 7 have put forward our correspondent character in there covering the g. 7 summit thank you garrick as we heard there from garrick the g 7 leaders are putting the final details on a $20000000.00 fund to help amazon country fight the wildfires raging in the rain forest brazilian president are both tomorrow had come under international pressure to take action he has now deployed the army but they are struggling to contain the

5:02 pm
back up to struggling firefighters in this region and in other states. but with almost $80000.00 fires registered across brazil this year alone it's a monumental task. protests across brazil including here in rio de janeiro of pointing the finger at president bolsa naro and his government they're blaming them for allowing mining and farming in the rain forests areas that before merely protected the for the most are defending the amazon is defending human beings humans depend on the amazon we are part of nature we are nature so it's impossible not to defend it school suitable for. the amazon fires have also spread into belief here. proof if anymore when needed that this is so unfolding environmental crisis knows no

5:08 pm
a major role and i think that by extending my contract it shows that i like playing here i don't think i was feeling at. the news that he was staying at the club had the fans in ecstasy before kickoff. of the and so they were positively euphoric 10 minutes in when the home so i took the lead from none other than team over 5 he's 52nd goal and he's 95th bundesliga appearance for the club and important one for him on this very special day was one nil to the harm saw. the next chance to celebrate didn't come until the 80th minutes ice insatiable volley by use to survive for the hosts was the dying's 1st of the season the. frankfurt didn't let their heads hang out and for back to get one back for gonzalo passing in wasn't enough to grab

5:10 pm
a sponsor and 2012 found out earlier this month that they have also been indicted by swiss authorities in connection with the affair. this year germany is marking 30 years since the fall of the berlin wall 3 decades on it's often no longer easy to discern to distinguish where the west ended and the east began and that is where technology steps in. this tour group is traveling through time from the outside they're not moving at all but with their virtual reality goggles they're headed on a tour bus into the east berlin of the early 1980 s. to. get the chief. of staff rights as a city tour as a 3 dimensional panoramic experience courtesy of a computer so that. they seem to say to. come back to the present what's the verdict on top of it here really get immersed in it there were times when i forgot i was wearing the cargoes heart is what is
5:11 pm
mine mine shaft as you really get. see the way it was in 3 d. i forget some of you forget where east and west are because the 2 just melt into one another and there it was clear you see buildings that you just walk past and say so that's what it was like to square. the man behind this virtual journey through time as you want us all to born just before the berlin wall came down his company has discovered a nice market. is in kind of we're not a museum and we don't try to be we want to touch people through history to see it and think about it where's the wall millions of tourists asked the city answers it's gone this mission if you can tell so clearly unfortunately we're not whereas the wall here. i don't see it i'll probably would expect especially here where it's somewhat busy you probably expect to see more of it. maybe not
5:12 pm
partly. when the city was reunited the wall was removed as fast as possible now 30 years later v.r. technology fills the gaps in memory. you see. peter coastie has made his own time warp a free app for smartphones and tablets wherever the wall one stood he's built it back up the devices camera blends the world of today with the virtual berlin wall all things to the technology of augmented reality that's not only was it you can see where the wall stood reborn as it were the history concealed in these places are granted reality is perfect for that to make something visible that's no longer there fortunately longer to look as. the few original sections of the wall still standing can only tell part of the story technology takes care of the
5:13 pm
rest. we've got and if seeing what a terrible time and. history that was with germany divided by the wall and so many people killed trying to escape using today's media to get a sense of those times is a good thing. travelling through time with an app then seeing how good it is that the real wall is long gone. now to a new record over the weekend the mexican city of brotherly had a hosted this the biggest folk dance in the world a total of $882.00 men and women in traditional costumes braving intense heat to dance and stamp their feet to mariachi music they nearly double the previous record which was set in the same city 8 years ago.

resorts operates 2 facilities. and the company owns and protects about 700 acres of forest land in the western ghats in keeping with the principle of minimal interference the results themselves take up only 3 acres on this rolling property another 15 acres are used for nature trails the rest of the forest is strictly protected and only researchers are allowed access. the land also acts as a wildlife corrido connecting beam go to wildlife sanctuary in karnataka to mother a wildlife sanctuary and to reserve forest areas in maharashtra. it's unknown by life because we are doing the constant and regular camera trapping but almost 56 years now we know what is the time that i goes from being good and

many people understand it is change this is what we need to help people and this is what are the communities and our teams odiot of. getting the people to tell them that. now the west and god still have a group forests which is one of the reasons why they had a biodiversity hot spot but this is a rarity in 20 years the world lost 3900000 hectares of all growth forest next explain how we help you understand what this number means. these seemingly impenetrable forests offers a glimpse of how wild in barman's can thrive when human interference is minimal. they're known as primary or old growth forests.
5:26 pm
so what old growth forests and how many of them still exist today. the forest area is called old growth when it has remained unaffected by human activity for a long period of time and. the oldest trees in these forests have been around for more than a 1000 years like the famous 10 in my u.t. or lord of the forest which is new zealand's biggest cari tree. complex natural systems like water on carbon cycles are seen in old growth forests simply cannot be replicated elsewhere. these trees. vast amounts of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere according to scientists 30 to 70 percent more than other forests banters global carbon sinks by locking up carbon they play a pivotal role in combating climate change. old growth forests are an invaluable source of freshwater and aid in the retention of think organic soil. today old
5:27 pm
growth forests make up about one 3rd of the world's woodlands but only between 12 and 22 percent of those forests are protected. once these forests are logged they can never grow back the same way what replaces them are usually 2nd root forests. these younger regenerated counterparts for short of delivering the full suite of benefits provided by the old growth forests. that include supporting their unique and endangered inhabitants. in that sense old growth forests are nonrenewable resource like fossil fuels. if we lose the last major blocks of all growth forests the consequences will be devastating for biodiversity across the planet. now with more and more. cities in india closing in on what was once the home of white animals on the outskirts of mumbai for example sightings have become very common in germany too seems to be facing

a similar issue with a population of wolves rising. earlier this year estimates suggested there are $73.00 facts in the country farmers who are often the 1st responders in the conflict with with their cattle being taken out in the fix and looking to the government and environmentalists for some real solutions to this problem. it might seem strange to think of wolves in germany but there are an estimated $300.00 just in front of the state surrounding berlin they usually hunted task or not. it silently and in packs and their number is growing. famines are all too aware of the problem the wolves don't only hunt wild animals but also livestock out on the fields and that is taking its toll financially for brandenberg farmer you're going frenzel the walls are causing so much trouble he's worried about his livelihood. and i think the wolves are getting
5:29 pm
smarter. we have a feeling that they're going into the herd chasing them and separating the cow from . the last 30 cars last year compensation is only given if it can be proven that a wolf is to blame it's tricky when the car just disappears or if it's stillborn because the mother was under stress farmers a supposed to use fencing but that's expensive. and the state authorities in brandenburg have responded to the farmers' plight they have authorized hunters to shoot wolves if as on frenzel farm they have repeatedly attacked livestock or a schumann being your animal conservationists are concerned stefan who has been observing a pack of wolves in his area for years and is convinced the situation isn't that dramatic as long as the wolf isn't loued him with food it will avoid humans. zoom

of course or words for that you see these fresh wolf tracks only a few hours old in 9 years i've only seen 15 or 6 times they're usually very shy way just observer. moves a most commonly cited with the help of camera traps. of the reader the owner of the can turn because he had the camera it's a black flash so he can't see it he's wearing. poitras says wall should be allowed to live in brandenburg there is no need to authorize shooting them it's just scaremongering. the strain under this is an endangered species the few worlds we have are going to wildly multiply up to 30 percent a year so i can't listen to this argument anymore we barely have $1000.00 wolves in germany but. the brunt of the hunting association says that is still too many it
5:31 pm
says such a large predator has no place in an area where there are lots of farms it wants to see shooting quotas and more freedom to decide when a wolf is to be shot some hunters say just a single pack in any one area would be enough i fear but fear or one track is about $4.00 to $6.00 animals they can live sustainably or they can rear their young have a home it's rare to everyone if you want to see more worlds go to the zoo. getting everyone on the same page is going to be a challenge. but amid the bitter disputes between hunters farmers and animal rights groups is still quite hopeful that wolves do have a future in germany the muslim world on auburn because we need to work together until it's better of. working with the hunting community like this is

is deja vu news live from berlin g 7 leaders prepare to wrap up their summit in the french city of b.r. it's earlier u.s. president donald trump said she has had a conversation with china that could change the outlook for their trade dispute and he has changed his tone on iran so what if anything did the leaders of china you will have full coverage from barents also coming up trying to contain the amazon forest fires the blazes are causing alarm around the world critics of brazil's president charleston are all saying he has done too little too late to stop that but she 7 leaders have hatched
5:48 pm
a plan to help. plus as the protests in hong kong become increasingly violent our correspondent talks to the volunteers who are helping demonstrators hurt in the protests. i'm suzanne was going to it's good to have you with us g 7 leaders are about to hold their final news conferences as the g. 7 summit wraps up in the french city of beer arrests today's meetings focused on climate change in the fires burning. in the amazon in brazil now earlier u.s. president donald trump trump held a series of press conferences including one with german chancellor angela merkel ahead of bilateral german u.s. talks and there has been a flurry of activity with trump touching on a number of key issues including the middle east peace process and iran will talk more about that in a moment but on the dispute with china the u.s. president had this to say there's a really good job so i think we're probably in
5:49 pm
a much better position now that any time during the negotiation that some of the media put i don't know that you could have gotten here without having to go through this process and maybe i'm wrong but i think we're probably in a stronger position to do a deal a fair deal for busy everybody. so we have a very meaningful goal here already all right let's talk more about the g. 7 summit we have had with us here in a studio an analyst on u.s. and european affairs of the german council on foreign relations and we of course have our correspondent gary in berates where he's been covering the summit for us scared let's start with you and with china we've heard a lot of back and forth on china from donald trump over the weekend but today we heard him there speaking of what would be a possible breakthrough in the trade conflict tell us more. you're right sumi a lot of conflict in messages here from the american president but it really seems that he moves away from his back and forth mantra has to do it alone month if you
5:50 pm
want and for the other world leaders that is great news everyone agrees here and be a rich regarding the problem in world trade and that is china now throwing cheap a subsidized goods on to the world market in huge quantities and with how to deal with it that is the big question the other 6 g 7 leaders here including european leaders do want to resolve this topic at the w.t. all at of with the result that with a multilateral organization i don't have trump plainly wants to go it alone but today maybe you made a step towards the other leaders all right heading that's a question i'll put to you did he make a step towards european leaders we heard encouraging words for european leaders at least from the u.s. president could he be moving towards possibly resolving this trade conflict with china. i think 1st of all the european leaders were really relieved that he was more co-operative i wouldn't say tame but. it wasn't the same as it was.
5:51 pm
in canada the last time when he was obnoxious and blocking all of the decisions they were conflicts on the table but he was in his tone much more conciliatory earlier i think he understands that he needs the other democracies the 7 countries if he wants to take up the fight with china and. he has an interest that this is not dragging into the election year that he can. provide some results or even successes and china has an interest to drag this as long as possible but i think china. with the economy in trouble is also interested to get this solved but. the face to ok face down what would that actually look like do you think concretely 1st of all a climb down and terrorists from both sides i think they would have to postpone the next steps that they have threatened of all they would have to agree to
5:52 pm
a new negotiation round and not in a way of saying i had a call from the chinese they want in the chinese could remember that so there must be. a mutual understanding that talks with a view to certain progress are needed and necessary and that needs to go on and. as long as those words they have to they have to cancel or postpone any further for the terrorists ok we'll have to see what happens on that front let's talk about another one of the big issues on the agenda at the g. 7 as we mentioned donald trump has also made remarks on iran at this summit tehran's foreign minister made a surprise appearance on the sidelines of the meeting after being invited to be arrests by the french now donald trump did not like reports that he had been in the dark about this saying he had approved them. there is. that was with great respect and i spoke to president bush today and. they were
5:53 pm
everything 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. brag but it should be told to meet with the manager to be a great thing for a great potential for ok heading let's start with you on this question of iran he's saying there donald trump there is a time for a meeting soon what do you make of that because that would be very significant in deescalating tensions i think trump you can say a lot about his brinkmanship and his tough tactics but he's always open to talk and it was the iranians who said now under these conditions there's no need to talk to talk and negotiate now trump is exerting pressure on iran and hopes the time is on the side that the tehran will. crumble at one point in time and say look we need to go shared with the americans about a broader set of security issues that the u.s. have in mind but. i think it was not the result of that meeting
5:54 pm
here. the mccollum made this stunt inviting the rain in foreign minister i am sure that he has consulted with before because it would have been a very very big risk to simply present the american president with a guest that is actually understand the u.s. sanctions so there was some coordination before not really between the german government and the french government but that tells maybe a bit that michael also wanted to show leadership but then it was a bit unclear what they were actually heading for and what whether there would be a joint agreement or not so it didn't really look well on the other side of the french but i think it was clear that negotiations are necessary and that. the americans are will. to do this as well but the concessions that iran has to have to make a really really meant that they would have to change their complete foreign policy
5:55 pm
and that is the path towards that direction but maybe as long as they talk the situation in the persian gulf is more secure ok so at least they might be willing to talk you're saying that's an important step garrett let's come to you what is the view on iran there in beer at sea it seems to be that one of the central aims of the french and in inviting about serif to be arrests was to foster dialogue how have the other leaders at the g 7 responded to trump's comments and possibly opening an avenue for dialogue. the german chancellor sumi was very clear on that subject and she said it's a big step forward it's a tough road but it's a big step forward so progress in the in the making and she also said it created an atmosphere where dialogue is possible and that is exactly what the french president intended yes he has prepared this meeting in advance very well he met up with serif before the g 7 he had
5:56 pm
a phone call with the iranian president so he carefully prepared this but also the fact that he invited the foreign minister to be in the same town even though not meeting the american president to in order to transmits the message that everyone hears on board that diplomacy one should return to diplomacy and not escalate the situation for other that it was quite crucial and that created this atmosphere that angela merkel talked about where dialogue is possible are an encouraging tone there in character saying let's talk a little bit more about what exactly is at stake when we talk about iran as we mentioned the foreign minister paying a surprise visit to the summit iran is looking to defuse tensions with the u.s. after it pulled out of the 2015 international nuclear accord and the u.s. has been applying a policy of maximum pressure that includes economic sanctions didn't use today's atop a has been looking into what that means for ordinary iranians. the
5:57 pm
economic heart of the iranian capital in the bizarre at 1st glance it seems to be bustling here. but looks can be deceiving. has traveled all the way from inside 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 bought 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. is. 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 between the u.s. and iran. we have to solve our problems and make peace with the rest of the
5:58 pm
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 it's 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 u.s. 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. i'm not surprised to hear words like these down here in the south of tehran where
5:59 pm
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 to run the clocks tick differently. i stop 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 why me administration actually was elected on and 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 probably gauge went at electing a government that was calling for engagement with the world now it is turning the
6:00 pm
other way around. i've 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. so i have given up hope 1st our regime has to change. more or regime change the political viewpoints into iran have become more extreme in both directions. all right our reporter theresa tropper there from iran and we should mention for our viewers just joining us that we are awaiting a press conference with the french president a man might call in the u.s.
6:01 pm
president donald trump and we're expecting that in about 15 minutes time we'll go live there as soon as that press conference begins but 1st having i want to ask you about the report that we just saw there there are some iranians at least in that report we did that we saw who are seriously hoping for a deescalation of tensions with the u.s. because the sanctions have really hit the iranian economy very hard and we heard donald trump saying today it's going to be time soon to meet with iran it's going to be a great thing for iran how reliable are those comments when we've seen such enmity between these 2 countries. i think the iranians feel very very hard that the the sanctions are making it impossible for them to have a normal economic life and then to improve conditions they had hoped that the money that flow back would flow back to their to the country after the nuclear agreement was was there would actually help them economy flee but it but this didn't really work out so it's also a very difficult time for the president rouhani and foreign minister zarif who.
6:02 pm
stand in for stood in for that for that agreement now. with the sanctions it might be easier for the iranian government to blame america for economic difficulties. the most iranians smart and they understand that this is of course the. friction between america and iran that iran can't really survive but then again many many iranians are very nationalistic very proud 5000 years of culture and they say we don't want anybody else. from the outside to get in most of our affairs and. change the politics in the iran every school kid knows the story of the elected president most of it was all stood by british and american secret services because he wanted to nationalize the oil industry and they know that they have numerous stories about others infringing on iranian policy and that makes it.
6:03 pm
i think a bit naive in the on the side of the americans to believe that the iranians will shove off the islamist group that has lots of support maybe not in tehran but elsewhere in the country. and then democracy would blow i think it would bloom i think what will happen is the the powerful fractions. of the religion religious foundations with all the money or the very powerful revolutionary guards say my criminal network that is that is. very strong and very rich that they would take over pub because they have the means to do so there's no organized opposition that could easily do that so it's not eastern europe in 1909 in iran ok so there are very complex geo political implications there on the ground it's what you're saying garrick i want to come back to you now to ask you about another issue that's really been central today and that is climate change and also fighting those ongoing
6:04 pm
wildfires in the amazon and that appears to be the only thing that the g 7 leaders could very concretely agree on today which is to help brazil in that fight tell us what has come of that today. it is this least the 1st tangible result that this summit has produced the french president announced an agreement by the g 7 nations that they want to provide an immediate fund of $20000000.00 u.s. dollars for help to extinguish these fires so money for airplanes for firefighters say airplanes to carry water into the amazon rain forest and in order to work on this but also he announced the longer a long term initiative in order to preserve this habit which he says is the long of the world he sees these wildfires as an attack on the lungs of the world is now the only downside of this if you want is that the united states president donald trump missed this meeting due to bilateral meetings and we really was should watch that
6:05 pm
press conference that upcoming press conference closely to see is commons but seeing that the french president took a while to really say this is what has been agreed to i take it that the american president goes along with that decision. indeed carol we will be looking very closely at that press conference coming up between the u.s. and french president for now though we will say good bye to you and heading we can here in studio and bring you back in when those press conferences begin. well as we heard there from garrett g 7 leaders have agreed to a $20000000.00 fund to help amazon countries fight the wildfires that are raging in the rain forest and brazilian president are both in r. o. had come under international pressure to take more action he has not applied the military for dumping water from planes to try and contain the blazes. after weeks of raging fire is still they'd burn the smoke choking its way across
6:06 pm
brazil affecting the lives of millions of people. who probably know it's not good it blocks your nose there's a lack of air it's difficult to sleep because it's hard to breathe. the fires leave their mark where ever they go destroying what ever is in their path after an international outcry it's super a zillion president bolsa naro decided to send in the army. military planes have been pumping vast amounts of water across the amazon state of rhonda neo in the north of the country. soldiers have also been offering back up to struggling firefighters in this region and in other states. but with almost $80000.00 fires registered across brazil this year alone it's
6:07 pm
a monumental task. protests across brazil including here in rio de janeiro of pointing the finger at president bolsa naro and his government they're blaming them for allowing mining and farming in the rain forests areas that before merely protected the for the most are defending the amazon is defending human beings humans depend on the amazon we are part of nature we are nature so it's impossible not to defend it school in seattle because. the amazon fires have also spread into believe via proof if anymore when needed that this unfolding environmental crisis knows no boundaries. but get around it now some other stories making news around the world in sudan the death toll from flooding triggered by having rains has climbed to at

it does the eggs will be implanted in surrogate rhino mothers with all the risks the lab cofounder had some advice for preserving biodiversity for another species and don't get to the last 2 in the real world before you go to use this technology . the world will know more in 10 days when the fertilization results are in. sports now in bundesliga football lights they continued their perfect start to the season with their 2nd straight win beating frankfurt spirits were high in leipsic even before kick off after the club announced that a striker vanna is staying put. he's old contract was said to run out at the end of the season the new one will keep him at the club until 2023. it seems he's wages get a healthy boost and he now has a 30000000 euro buy he should have been eager to meet him if i never said i
6:14 pm
wouldn't want to stay here it was always clear to me that leipzig would play a major role and i think that by extending my contract it shows that i like playing here i just think shooting at. the news that he was staying at the club had the fans in ecstasy before kickoff. and so they were positively euphoric 10 minutes in when the home so i took the laid for none other than team over by his 52nd goal and he's 9051 just like appearance for the club an important one for him on this very special day was one nil to the 100 saw. i was the next chance to celebrate didn't come until the 80th minute i sin sation a volley by q so who survived to the hosts it was the danes the 1st of the season was. the frankfurt didn't let their heads hang dog and 4 back to get one

6:16 pm
a court has ruled that the cases should proceed to trial tail and vote on spot who are seen here when the latter succeeded sponsor in 2012 found out earlier this month that they have also been indicted by swiss authorities in connection with the affair. this year germany is marking 30 years since the fall of the berlin wall 3 decades on it is often no longer easy to distinguish where the west ended and the east began and that is where technology steps in. this tour group is traveling through time from the outside they're not moving at all but with their virtual reality goggles they're headed on a tour bus into the east berlin of the early 1980 s. so. yeah the feet. instead i see. a city tour as a 3 dimensional panoramic experience courtesy of a computer said let's. see transit let's.
6:17 pm
come back to the present what's the verdict on top of it you really get immersed in it there were times when i forgot i was wearing the goggles i took mine mine shaft you really get to see the way it was in 3 d. i forget some of you forget where east and west are because the 2 just melt into one another and there was clear you see buildings that you just walk past and say so that's what it was like so much quicker. the man behind this virtual journey through time as you want us all to born just before the berlin wall came down his company has discovered a nice market. is in kind of zones of we're not a museum and we don't try to be one we want to touch people through history to see if we don't think about it where's the wall millions of tourists asked the city answers it's gone this mission and you can tell so clearly unfortunately we're not
6:18 pm
whereas the wall here. i don't see it i probably would expect especially here where it's somewhat visit you probably expect to see more. maybe not partly. when the city was reunited the wall was removed as fast as possible now. 30 years later v.a.r. technology fills the gaps in memory. you see. peter coastie has made his own time warp a free app for smartphones and tablets wherever the wall one stood he's built it back up the devices camera blends the world of today with the virtual berlin wall all things to the technology of augmented reality the spano we know was it you can see where the wall stood reborn as it were the history concealed in these places are granted reality is perfect for that to make something visible that's no longer there fortunately our longer. the few original sections of the
6:19 pm
wall still standing can only tell part of the story technology takes care of the rest. you know and of seeing what a terrible time in our history that was with germany divided by the wall and so many people killed trying to escape using today's media to get a sense of those times is a good thing is to find a victim travelling through time with an app than seeing how good it is that the real wall is long gone. well 2 states in eastern germany are gearing up for elections this weekend that could see a far right party make big gains the alternative for germany the f.t. is leading opinion polls in the state of fun book near berlin and running a close 2nd in neighboring saxony did you travel to the city of chemists in saxony the scene of far right rioting following the killing of a german man by an asylum seeker last year through election campaigns are in full
6:20 pm
swing encampments there is parties are hoping to win over undecided voters people like nick kids hirschi he's 28 years old a sports trainer and a martial arts enthusiastic. moment on i haven't decided yet which party will vote for in the regional elections. with their anti immigrant slogans the right wing populist party is gaining popularity. nick wants to hear what candidates have to say when a nuke in my name is nick i was born here and was raised here what are the 3 main things that the f.t. wants for kim that's off the sofa came it's a little play and. the problem with migrants in this city is clear you hear it from everybody. and they're concerned of course because they're just not used to that
6:21 pm
and former east germany yes from history but. back then we had people from vietnam and cuba. yes i know all that and i think it's good but what did we do back then it was mostly people who came here for a reason to do vocational training and then they took that training and went back to their home countries. the main talking point here in chemist's is the german government's refugee policy the true extent of local dissatisfaction became clear a year ago when a german cuban man was stabbed to death in the city center and the kids years he says since then everything is changed he is this is the memorial to daniel h. who was murdered here a year ago on august 26th 1900. or more the rightwing mobs use the incident to go on the rampage through out candidates shouting racist abuse giving the hitler salute and chanting nazi slogans a politician and other members of the right wing party were seen demonstrating
6:22 pm
alongside local neo nazis according to the kids here ski the demonstrations polarized the city with people on both sides still unable to bridge the divide. the atmosphere here income that has got much more aggressive with their divisions among my friends and within my family makes grandparents new chemist's when it was part of socialist east germany they say the city no longer feels safe. i can't go out at night anymore i'm too scared to go into town it wasn't like that before we don't have to beat around the bush it's the asylum seekers. if there were more security people and maybe more police than the atmosphere would be better. there's no problem with foreigners are grew up in a world that's totally globalized and which only functions through globalization a country where everyone says the foreigners have to leave has no future.
6:23 pm
need kids often hears friends express these fears still he doesn't think if tea party can win the upcoming state election they certainly won't be getting his vote . our political correspondent kate brady is looking into this story for us she's with us here in our studio hi kate this is shaping up to be a pretty tight race between chance i'm going to marco's conservative the c.d.u. in saxony and the far right what is at stake here for the chancellor but there's a lot at stake here for of course her conservatives have been hemorrhaging voters largely to the far right after the in recent months particularly since i was 2017 national elections we've had several state elections since in every corner of germany and also the european parliamentary elections just earlier this year and in every one of those elections her party as well as her junior coalition party the social democrats have taken quite
6:24 pm
a bating losing votes largely to the far right afterward but also to the green party as well who are expected to make some small but significant gains. in these upcoming elections in saxony to where we just saw there in that report but what's interesting about saxony is well this is really a mirror image of the government in berlin right now of course the coalition government right now is merkel's conservatives and the junior coalition partner is a social democrat so any blows that are taken in this election on sunday would be more pressure on that very fragile coalition that merkel's been leading now for the past couple of years since those elections in 2017 and it has been a rough ride for that coalition it was a very difficult but it took a long time we were without a government here or a new government should i say name for a good 6 months and there was certainly a lot of reluctance from the social democrats as well to join yet another so-called
6:25 pm
grand coalition with the conservatives and now both of these parties are very much being held to account in sex in these these elections for her very much moved away from local issues and instead is very much focusing on national issues and most importantly at least for many voters there in saxony that issue seems to be migration ok so you're saying the stability of the governing coalition here in berlin is at risk as you said yourself the christian democrats are america's party has been hemorrhaging support in the former eastern saxony particularly to the far right and there have been members of the c.d.u. leaders of this party in the former east who have suggested maybe it's time to start working with or talking to the a.s.g. to the star instead of marginalizing that party is that something that we could actually see that the conservatives recalibrate how they work with or don't work with rather than the far right as you said there has been quite a standoffish relationship so far national level as well but i think that's still
6:26 pm
something that's very unlikely to turn into anything that's close even to a coalition for example i mean any of the paul. in saxony including michael's a conservatives have ruled out working with the f.d.a. with the far right f.t. should they become the strongest party but of course that's going to be very interesting that should the f.t. prove the polls right and indeed come out as the strongest party in these polls in in saxony in these elections on sunday but then of course the other parties are always going to have in the back of their mind despite them possibly creating a coalition of several parties they are always going to know that the f.t. could possibly be the strongest party but of course the conservatives have learned a lesson as well at least from the assist the party down in bavaria says too conservative parties here in germany and they have there's a c.s. use assisted party down in bavaria and they really quite made the mistake last year
6:27 pm
of following some of the rhetoric of the far by f.t. in an attempt to win back voters and they started copying some of the rhetoric in terms of their hardline stance on migration and that really proved to be to their failure of rating in their in their state elections in bavaria and instead they lost a lot of voters to the other side who went to the greens so has that been the issue i mean why is it that the big traditional parties that have really made up the political center in germany for so long and included so many voters why have they lost so much support particularly in these eastern states well what's unique to the east of course is that these are what's often referred to still in germany as the new states the new one and a slender which of course already gives an indication of the relationship or at least the mental relationship between former west and former east germany and a lot of this the critics still say in is very apparent that there is still very much a divide whether it's looking at the quality of life in former west and former
6:28 pm
eastern germany whether it's wages whether it's unemployment and unemployment specifically is one of the issues as well which. the former east has been hit with hard a lot of industry was closed down when germany reunited the 2 geminis reunited back in 1990 and the former the further east you go to the border the more. you see it you see firsthand how what some of these cities have been left behind many of them really falling apart in front of your in front of your eyes when you go to visit these places and it's really quite simple i mean it is sometimes which have left many voters frustrated and they see where some of the wealth is being spent in other parts of germany and in the meantime there are cities and small towns in the former east that have been left with next to no transport they have one bus an hour some schools have been closed down there isn't been there isn't at least as much as investment go into rebuilding
6:29 pm
infrastructure in some of these former east german cities and instead of course after the wall fell in 1909 and germany united a year later there was a huge really a mass exodus of people from the former east to the west and many of them were also women well educated women went to the west and instead you have a lot of men who were left behind without their careers that they had built in quite labor heavy industries and nothing over that very little has been done to make sure that they are taken care for all those well all right a lot of factors there leading up to the vote on september 1st in 2 states as you said kate and we of course will have live coverage of that election on sunday our political correspondent kate brady with us thank you very much. now london's notting hill carnival is well underway with $2000000.00 people expected to attend
6:30 pm
the 2 day event this year revelers from across london and around the world were out in a vibrant show of the city's multicultural character on sunday the notting hill carnival dates back to the 1960 s. and is a celebration of the afro caribbean community and its contribution to british culture ok. all right we are back to our top story now g 7 leaders preparing to hold their final news conferences in the french city of berates they've been meeting over the weekend talking about a host of international issues and the picture you see there on your screen is a press conference we are waiting for that is between the french and the u.s. presidents a man on the call and donald trump will be listening live to that press conference when it starts in the meantime we'll be talking about what to expect and what we've seen already over the weekend with heading we can from the german council on foreign relations here and of course much this has been following all of this from
6:31 pm
brussels let's start with you you know you were saying earlier that we will be looking closely to see what comes out of this press conference between him and call and of course donald trump there as well and it seems that the french have been very eager to paint a picture of harmony and unity that a lot has been achieved at this summit this past weekend but in reality what exactly has been achieved. a number of time travel results are really there and that is really the result of the a smart strategy if you want from the french president he has broadened the agenda knowing very well that the decisive big the big issues are really decisive that there's not much common ground when it comes to world trade iran or at least there wasn't much common ground let's let's maybe put it that way on the on the on a positive note so let's 1st take a look at the results we have and that is on the amazon rainforest a solid 5 fund package an aid package of $20000000.00 is what is
6:32 pm
on the table in order to extinguish these fires than a long term strategy to help the environment in the amazon and we also have some movement here in the in reducing inequality in africa and inequality regarding the relationship of africa to europe or other rich a western countries where the french president has had a number of forums there talking everything from women empowerment micro credits for a female entrepreneurs things like that up to an initiative regarding desirable zone fighting terrorism there increasing security there will be financial aid for a military forces down there and training a number of these things critics have already said have already been around but leaders here german chancellor angela merkel and the french president made clear they want to ramp up their efforts in africa. gary i just want to push back at that
6:33 pm
point of some tangible results coming out of this 27 summit because there is of course no communique so no final statement coming from this summit and it was speculated that one of the reasons was because last year in canada donald trump signed on to a statement and then simply shattered it afterwards on twitter is this essentially to prevent that from happening to prevent some agreement from taking place there is . that changing in afterwards. the oficial explanation for that is of course that the french president. said again this isn't a formal meeting and there needs to be no communique but but clearly you're right seeing that president trump in canada really walked away from that final declaration not signing it was a disaster and the french president in preparation for the summit was really into amateur controlled prepare things so that the threshold for critics for
6:34 pm
commentators is really low and so that he has something to show it was also and i think that's quite a remarkable he gave a very lengthy speech a very personal speech to the french public making clear that he is here for them he is here to address key problems in the world when it comes to structuring international relations world trade. over rain forest fires in order to make clear to citizens in france but also in the rest of the world that this meeting is crucial that speaking to each other is important and that was a message that also german chancellor angela merkel reiterated it has its meaning it is useful she said that we have a small circle of people just 7 leaders sitting on a small table and being able to discuss things in an informal manner all right heading let's come to you and i want to put that question to you as well as we're waiting for this press conference between a man and a call and donald trump to get under way how useful has this been this weekend or
6:35 pm
seem to be a lot of discord yesterday today more positive tones coming out of these these meetings what is your take i mean it's a bit. of a feature of trompe and age that everybody is happy and relieved that this president didn't do any freaky twittering and disrupt the whole meeting he was conciliatory he was it was kind co-operative which is a good sign and some of the results are also very important especially the one on. forest fires in britain brazil but also on the side so there is a sign that cooperation is possible to get the conflict when there is well one over russia to be. allowed at the g. 7 table again over the weekend that was obviously a near clash between trump and the others. obviously trump isn't happy about
6:36 pm
what he calls nice topics of the g. 7 like climate so he didn't he didn't attend the session on the climate policy including the agreements on the on the brazilian fires so you see that there is there are areas where they don't really agree to each other but the fact that they negotiated to have them talks that even iran. was a topic where obviously more negotiations are possible there is a good thing and i think it's a sign that the trump doesn't want to be. the crazy president he wants to show also to his public that he can achieve something on these meetings and especially to tie in the other when it comes to focusing on china because the conflict with china is the one most important topic that he has on the table i want to ask you a bit more about china he did speak as we were just saying a little early earlier about the having had a conversation with china that could possibly lead to
6:37 pm
a breakthrough on their trade conflict we have a clip of that let's listen to what he said. it's a really good we're probably in a much better position. to. have gotten here without having to go through this process and maybe i'm wrong but i think we're probably in a stronger position to do a deal a fair deal for everybody. so we have a very meaningful goal misread i think on that point on china we heard such mixed messages from the president over the weekend on sunday he said that she was having 2nd thoughts about a new round of tariffs and then hours later said she only regretted not raising tariffs further and today he's saying that it could be that there's a possible breakthrough that they're willing to talk about this so despite those positive put where do we actually stand on the u.s. is trade conflict with china could you take anything away from that i think we're still. about on the same spot where we have been before the summit. trump
6:38 pm
said he got a call from china and there is a there's a good spirit to to go should the chinese didn't remember calling him so that was obviously some sort of metaphor for all the discussion that is going on between the u.s. and china but i think. he's playing a tough bargain because he wants to to go into the election here with an economy that is booming and. the u.s. economy is struggling currently in especially a great culture the farmers soybean farmers that the need to to export to china all these these people are hit by the extra terrorists that the chinese are setting up so time is running out for trump but also a bit for for the chinese and this is what he relies on so i think he wants to wait out the chinese a little bit and then hope the new negotiations are possible both sides have no interest to. engage in an all out trade war or currency war as it is as it
6:39 pm
is no happening but. it might be that both sides cannot do this without losing face trump knows that most americans believe that china's trade practices with regard to the u.s. are unfair as opposed to canada or europe and so he can really let it go in the direction of china there must be concessions coming from xi jinping right let's come back to you where do the other g 7 leaders stand on this question of trade with china at this point because you know we saw donald trump say yesterday i think they respect the trade war when he was asked about the other g 7 leaders on hand what have we heard from them in terms of how to resolve this trade conflict between the u.s. and china. well the other leaders here really agree on the problem and in fact everyone agrees on the problem and seeing that a number of initiatives have already been started in the w t o the international
6:40 pm
organisations where these things are to be resolved in saying that look china you can't go on throwing your cheap subsidised goods onto the world market and having a struggle with it it hit a number of industries in germany it hit the solar panel industry that went down due to that effect and so everyone is on the same page here the question is how do you resolve this do you resolve this in going it alone in increasing pressure in starting a tit for tat trade war or do you seek a solution by our international organisations via the w.g. reforming the w.t. or so far donald trump is not on the page of that he doesn't want to pursue that strike and the hope really is of german chancellor angela merkel but also what the british prime minister boris johnson was very clear on that he would like to see
6:41 pm
some progress on that front where international trade can be reformed with the united states on board going to want to ask you about something that having had just mentioned a little bit earlier which is the question of whether to bring russia as a worm back into the fold so to include russia again in g 7 talks and there seem to be absolutely conflicting messages over where the u.s. stands on that and where the other g 7 leaders stand on that over the weekend what did come out of this out of these talks in terms of whether to include russia going forward. i did not hear a single leader other than the american president here who really looked into that option seriously of creating again the g 8 if you want readmitting. putin here to the g. 7 everyone agrees apart from donald trump that 1st of all problems political problems the conflict in ukraine has to be resolved and and after all the
6:42 pm
annexation of crimea remains i keep problem that has not been resolved either so a lot of stumbling blocks before. russia could be technically readmitted of course some diplomats told me here what could happen is we've seen here the french president of invited parcel a guest if you want and that was the iranian foreign minister so seeing that the g 7 will be hosted in the united states potentially in miami the american presidency or announced he could of course invite a personal guest and that personal guest would be flooding reports yet it is up to him who we invite isn't it when the edgy 7 takes place in the u.s. and that heading picking up on that point that the iranian foreign minister made a surprise visit on sunday invited by the french foreign minister was that a diplomatic coup for the french there to have a job at cirith arrive there and and try to perhaps foster dialogue on the question of the escalating tensions between the u.s. and iran. i think it was
6:43 pm
a stunt was it showed the micro had his own ideas about how to to manage the summit like this i'm pretty sure that he has consulted with trump before who didn't didn't oppose that step because it would have been a big risk to invite a person that is on the same tunes from the u.s. to the summit if you have a kind of a dangerous rhetoric partner like you like america and the trump but. we have to see how that worked out and what it meant because. there have been. talks about the possible the go she added agreement that you would postpone sanctions as long as iran would stop. adding up to its with its enrichment and it doesn't seem as if this has come about there were no direct talks the end both sides america and the european partners showed they have individual iran policies that are at odds most
6:44 pm
of the time so. i wouldn't overestimate it but it made clear that in the signal was the the the european partners are strongly behind i would say japan and. canada as well strongly behind stepping up diplomatic efforts and trying to tie in iran again to avoid further escalation on the on the go for formals i think that is a message the trumpets understood what was your impression there on the question of how to engage with iran we did see donald trump say that we'll do our own outreach we can't stop others from doing their outreach if they want to talk they can talk and we just heard heading say that there seemed to be individual policies towards iran how much unity is there in this question it seems like european leaders at least are very certain they want to hold on to the nuclear agreement. well absolutely your european leaders are are rather proud for their diplomatic efforts
6:45 pm
that has brought about the nuclear nuclear deal with iran in the 1st place and so they fought very hard and long in order to keep the u.s. on board and when the united states walked away that that was a diplomatic down point for it from the perspective of the european union so they are very keen and the french leader here may have made a tough effort but but let me say one more word to to what having said and i think that's an important observation here in reporting also when i talk to colleagues we realized that the president the american president arrives here like you harry can there is sends out strong messages against china doesn't know a conflict in messages if you want on iran he said at 1st he didn't know that the foreign minister comma is coming that he did know about it. and so that he creates a situation that at the end of the day everyone is happy about announcements that
6:46 pm
he says more or less we have reached a conclusion on iran so it really is also has to be observed that this is this could be of course also a tactical maneuver here and at the end of the day of course what for the american president counts is the audience at home so he really carefully listens and sending us pointed out so you have been farmers are not happy about the situation in world trade and that could also be in fact it could be the key explanation why he has to use down his rhetoric regarding china pretending just very quickly before we update our viewers on what we're watching here and is that true is this a new type of diplomacy that has that we're seeing here in in g. 7 summit. i think it's clear that this is a g 6 plus one in the movie and. it's obvious that the trump might find himself in the position that he has to confront all the others he did that in canada last year and it didn't didn't pay out well for him i think so he
6:47 pm
has to be also seen as a responsible leader but some of his voters in the middle in the center of the republican party all right thank you very much and let's bring our viewers up to date now we are bringing you special coverage from the g. 7 summit in berets in france and soon we're expecting a press conference as we said between the french president when i call on his u.s. counterpart donald trump to conclude this summit and we are going to be bringing you live coverage of that press conference as soon as it starts we're monitoring that and there is no movement just yet but as soon as that starts we'll listen in live leaders from the group of 7 nations have been holding talks for 3 days now and a host of issues including climate change and and trade tensions and international treaties like the 2815 iran nuclear accord the g 7 leaders also discussed the forest fires raging in the amazon vowing to set up a $20000000.00 fund to tackle them. and if
6:48 pm
you find. you know climate r.e. broader viewers up to date as we said still monitoring whether that press conference will get underway was actually scheduled to get underway about half an hour ago but donald trump and cause you see there so have not showed up at gare maybe we can just pick up that point that we just finished off on there in that update to our viewers that deceives to be the one point where a g 7 leaders were able to unanimously agree which is to help brazil fight the forest fires in the amazon tell us more about what they agreed on their. well 1st of all they agreed on an aid package $20000000.00 aid package in order to extinguish these fires in the 1st place then we're looking at a longer term initiative that is trying to improve the environment the german chancellor also talked about reforestation
6:49 pm
a project that the g 7 would like to support so a number of short term medium term and long term things that have been agreed the french president was very careful it throughout the day he said we're very close to agreeing this and at the end the day of the day he said the g. 7 agreed on this what was remarkable however is that in the key session where he announced that statement and that initiative one seat remained empty and that was the seat of donald trump the american president of fishley his diplomatic corps said he had another bilateral meeting so he missed that session but of course there's been speculation here that this issue simply isn't important to him we'll have to wait for the final press conference to see what he says on it it will be interesting because obviously everyone expects that he is on the same page with other leaders seeing that that is
6:50 pm
a package that the french president has said all g 7 nations here have agreed to get one of those bilateral talks that we saw taking place that perhaps led to donald trump coming later not being able to attend that meeting was between. us german talks there what do you think we can take away from the messaging we saw between uncle americal and donald trump today. i think it was interesting that he didn't pick on the. defense budget issues that he always have with the germans. so usually he would ask in very fierce terms that the job really pays more for defense in the way that we get to the u.s. or at least owing into nato he didn't do this this time. so he be rather wants to tie in germany i think. when it comes to confronting china when it comes to 2 other trade issues that are more important i think it's more likely that with
6:51 pm
the trade issues between the e.u. and and america there is there is more chance of coming to an agreement actually and because both sides really want to have. both sides could very well live with 0 terrorists or could really go she the package that i've already made and so i think in this area things things are moving forward but. even offering to come to germany had at a later point he mentioned he mentioned that it is kind of. what he would assume as a charm offensive. in the sense. to show that he is not at all it's with germany and in every sense but i do want to ask you about one of the things we heard chancellor merkel today which also touched upon which is that she absolutely welcomed this positive tone towards possibly holding negotiations with iran and we said already there is a surprise visit from the iranian foreign minister how do you see the europeans
6:52 pm
strategy in dealing not only with iran and holding on to this nuclear agreement going forward but also holding on to that as tensions have in the past 3 months at least continue to escalate between the u.s. and iran so the europeans have an interest the nuclear agreement remains in place and they work for that with like small means that they have because they came up with the old way the sanctions that america can can issue with regard to access to the american market not only for iran but also for companies doing business with iran. but they want to want to iran to stick to the agreement and they want to negotiate although they also know that the list of points that the americans have made up is pretty you watch and iran would have to actually. change is complete foreign policy change it's also looked to the world and its view of itself as a regional power and that is very difficult to do for for iran so what america is aiming
6:53 pm
for is i think. either a very very weakened. islamic republic of iran that can only. deliver concession after concession or a change of government towards a more democratic open political system which is not very likely because the people in power in iran are revolutionary guards and religious foundations with the money so any and the civil unrest might actually lead to more repression through to more pressure but. the fact that came that he the iranians are always looking to to find partners and to split the west when it comes to negotiating and that was of course for iran the great coup that they were invited to be a rhodes and could could help the europeans show to the american counterpart that.
6:54 pm
the europeans have their own iran policy well let's take a closer look at what exactly is at stake here for iran as you said looking to defuse tensions with the u.s. after washington pulled out of the international nuclear accord from 2015 the u.s. has been applying a policy of maximum pressure that includes economic sanctions and it is to face a tough us been looking into what that means for ordinary iranians. the economic heart of the iranian capital in the bizarre at 1st glance it seems to be bustling here. but looks can be deceiving. has traveled all the way from is to say the fabrics but business is slow today. as a move to 2 inches. this is one of the most important parts of the bazaar this is working. textiles are bought 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
6:55 pm
doing right now hardly anyone comes here. 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 between the u.s. and iran. we have to solve our problems and make peace with the rest of the world. we live in a time of communication we can't close the doors to the outside world. since 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. and the 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.
6:56 pm
more than a year since the u.s. 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. 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 tiran but clocks tick differently. i stop 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. actually was elected on of dialogue and engagement with the world to settle differences
6:57 pm
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 probably in gauge meant at electing a government that was calling for engagement with the world now it is turning the other way around. i've 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
6:58 pm
1st our regime has to change. the political viewpoints into iran has become more extreme in both directions. ok we are still awaiting a press conference as we've mentioned between french president on my call and u.s. president donald trump at the g. 7 summit in b a that's but the heading i want to ask you about the report that we just saw there some iranians a looking for a way out of these tensions with the u.s. to help their their struggling economy at the moment are is this welcome to iran to hear donald trump say it could be that we meet soon that we could be heading towards negotiations because just before we said that we saw that report you said you know the situation on the ground is far more complex than just starting negotiations i think the regular people in iran they would be happy to have negotiations with america with. the goal of. relieving
6:59 pm
the country from the pressure of sanctions in the end. and they have been huge hopes to the on the on the nuclear agreement and much support for president rouhani negotiating it and much frustration afterwards because none of that much of the money that was dragged back into the country after the sanctions have been relieved was used for an economic upturn and. the fact that people are now looking into another face a very dire economic to go is a situation means that they are pretty frustrated i would not read this necessarily at the like democratic oppressed going uprising going on unrest it's rather that people are frustrated they are angry with with their government they can be easily but they also many of them on nationalistic many of them support these lever correct of the republic and most of them don't really like other countries meddling in their affairs and if america is now with
7:00 pm
a lot of economic pressure. trying to isolate the government the result might actually be that the iranians move closer to to the to the government it also weakens the position of the more moderate rouhani. who's also one of the possible candidates for replacing the supreme religious leader who is very old and a ling. so in the end it might be that. any change of regime might result in a more oppressive and more noxious iranian government ok i want to come back to you and we are looking at the scene right now in berets as that press conference is set to get under way this might seem like a detail but it is interested a lot of people to know did world leaders there actually know that javits a reef was invited to attend the summit of course a separate talks not to the summit itself but that he was going to be arriving in
7:01 pm
berets on sunday and what has actually come out of those talks with the french. well this question was put to german leader german chancellor angela merkel and the response was a smile and then she said she felt well informed by the french president up on the arrival off the foreign minister of iran whether she got that information as the plane landed had landed or was about to land she couldn't quite recall but it was quite interesting to hear so who was informed however we learned from diplomats is the american president and he was most likely be informed cheering a short lunch the 2 leaders have to the french president and the american president and i think it was that is also a very likely scenario because as having us pointed out it would have been very risky to bring in a surprise guest and risk that donald trump walks out of off
7:02 pm
a conference something like that so all right well certainly an interesting diplomatic move there in beer at the henning and garrick we will come back to you both to talk a little bit more about this g. 7 summit when that press conference in the barents between the french and american presidents gets underway was we heard 7 leaders have agreed to a $20000000.00 fund to help amazon countries that fight the wildfires raging in a rain forest and brazilian president are both now and have come under international pressure to take more action he has not deployed the military who are dumping water from planes to try and contain the blazes. after weeks of raging fires still they burn the smoke choking its way across brazil affecting the lives of millions of people. it's not good it blocks your nose there's
7:03 pm
a lack of air it's difficult to sleep because it's hard to breathe. the fires leave their mark where ever they go to strong what ever is in their path. after an international outcry says super a zillion president bolsa naro decided to send in the army. military planes have been pumping vast amounts of water across the amazon state of rhonda neo in the north of the country. soldiers have also been offering back up to struggling firefighters in this region and in other states. but with almost $80000.00 fires registered across brazil this year alone it's a monumental task. protests across brazil including here in rio de janeiro of pointing the finger at president
7:04 pm
bolsa naro and his government level aiming them for allowing mining and farming in the rain forests areas that before merely protected this is the most defending the amazon is defending human beings humans depend on the amazon we are part of nature we are nature so it's impossible not to defend it. the symbol of. the amazon fires have also spread into belief here. proof if anymore when needed that this folding environmental crisis knows no boundaries. now to some other stories making news around the world iran says it has sold the oil aboard a tanker that had been detained in gibraltar for 6 weeks the buyer of the oil was not identified the adrian daria one formally named the grace one was suspected of
