posed by senator graham. is china a friend or a foe? it reminded me i was once in israel and asked the foreign minister the same thing between their relationship between russia and he said it's a friendship but it needs an awful lot of work. we have extensive ties with china commercially and many multi-lateral venues obviously and the relationship is probably just about the most important relationship between two nations in the world. but when you list those items of controversy that senator graham mentioned, chinese position vis-a-vis syria, the completely flagrant cyber security attacks that can be testified to by any governmental agency or technology firm in this country will tell you about it occurring day after day after day, along with chinese government, you know, denials of the obvious reality. and then the situation in north korea. it is clear that while we have a friendship and an alliance and it's a very strategic one that's important for the world, it needs a lot of work right now. and i would associate with the comments of the senator. i think that the north korean nuc

often compare what is going on in china to what is going on in the united states. having spent some time in the construction industry, there is a certain nimbleness to communism. there is the freedom of just taking over land because the country owns it all and they can say to citizens "we like this land and you leave." there is a speed and cost savings that does not allow us to compare what is going on in china today. economies are much different. our systems of government are much different. it would probably be helpful for the overall conversation to set aside those comparisons. i would like to focus on what is going on in california. can you give us an idea of what the real time line is that you expect it to be? how much more money will this cost the taxpayers to subsidize california's high speed rail? >> the investments that are being made in high-speed rail across america amount to a little over $10 billion so far. states are putting in their own money. california is certainly doing that. their assembly voted tto sell the bonds. these things are controversy appearance what i sa

and all 20 major global importers of iranian oil -- including japan, india, china, and turkey -- to make significant cuts. iran today exports more than one million fewer barrels of crude each day than it did just last year. iran's currency is worth less than half of what it was last november. the pressure is real and it is growing. and let me add, we take pride in the coalition we have assembled, but no pleasure in the hardship that iran's choices have caused its own people to endure. we are making every effort to ensure that sanctions don't deprive iranians of food, medicines, and other humanitarian goods. i travel the world working to help people everywhere take part in the global economy, and we never lose sight of the fact that iranians deserve this no less than any other people. america's goal is to change the iranian leadership's calculus. we have worked with the p-5 plus 1 to put a credible offer on the table. if there is a viable diplomatic deal to be had, we will pursue it. and should iran finally be ready to engage in serious negotiations, we are ready. when iran is prepar
