five years global demand for oil, particularly with china, india and the developing world continuing to want more, global demand will exceed global supply by several million barrels a day. in the first instance that has a huge impact on price. and the price of course will serve to hold the global economy in check unfortunately. but still there will be that demand. auto companies reported that china auto purchasing in september of this year exceeded any other previous month in history. so the chinese love mobblet the way americans love mobblet. and that's a huge impact on global demand. so i predicted for some years ow that whether 2016 or 2018 there will not be enough oil. not because the world doesn't have a lot of oil. but the technical difficulties of getting oil from new reservoirs while old ones decline is overwhelming to the industry. whether it's deep water brazil, whether it's arctic reserves, whether it's east africa, whether it's other difficult base sins, there simply cannot be enough done to meet the global demand in the middle of this decade. that's point one. point two, th

special representative by china for afghanistan recently? >> a special representative of china for afghanistan and pakistan. this is very late in the game. let me go back to the young man over there who i was going to ignore because of the time, but i think if you can get a question and we can get an answer. can you comment on the security articles in light of 2, 4 and five, especially with maybe that might undermine gains in north waziristan. >> the question is about the imposition of article 245, which in the military as of today, section 144 has been imposed on islamabad, which means you can have a gathering of more than four people in the public. to the next. if you wouldn't mind trying to wrapnd to these, that will us up. >> i'm not qualified to answer more about idp's. i will focus on this. i think the civilian law enforcement agencies lack the support 144. it will be a good test to see. this -- they will be looking for this opportunity to conduct terrorist attacks in islamabad. again, i think pakistani -- neither pakistani intelligence nor the police have the capacit

. >> hi. you are heading to china next month for the strategic dialogue for the economic relationship, and i would like to ask, against the backdrop of slowing global growth, china's increasing clout, and the u.s.' slight pivot toward a harder line toward china, what are the challenges you think the u.s. faces in regards to this relationship over the course of the next year? mr. lew: i think that the u.s.-china relationship -- i will limit myself to discussing the economic relationship -- but the u.s.-china economic relationship is one of the most important economic relationships in the world. we are the two largest economies in the world. the global economy will do well if we do well. it will suffer if we suffer. we have made clear in our dealings with china that they have to take steps that are good for china, but also good for the global economy, that there is a responsibility that comes with being one of the two largest economies in the world. i think we have made progress in the economic discussions, but we have a lot more progress to make. i believe that the chinese economic policyma

the world sees what the president is doing. one occasion i remember was the first trip to china, which was in 2009. and the president -- it was a bit of a disaster. the president did a town hall meeting in shanghai, which half of china couldn't even see because it was blocked off and the chinese wouldn't let half the people come in. didn't go and see any dissidents for example. when reagan went to moscow he went to see dissidents, etcetera, etcetera. and then he had this press conference, which was not really a press conference at all but him and hu standing there kind of looking around and it went into this massive discussion of mutual cooperation and that kind of stuff. the chinese often talk about that in public. the president was staring around looking at, catching people's eye in the front row. he was very bored. the press coverage was absolutely brutal on that. and i kind of didn't do that story because i figured we were all flying around in the same plane. everyone is going to ride over the disaster. i have to come up with something different at least as a foreign journal
