11:07 am
wary of what president trump will say in his nine months in office he's already attended nato g. seven and g. twenty summits on the global stage he's appeared at times uncertain his actions unpredictable donald trump does not perform well a big international summits when he attended a nato summit he actually managed to physically push another leader out of the way and his advisors must hope that he will be back here because this is his last chance to really convince other world leaders that he is someone they can do business with and that is not just a nativist who wants the u.n. over to china as usual global leaders face a whole host of challenges among them an ongoing humanitarian emergency with the exodus of the row hinge are in myanmar then there's the wars in syria in iraq yemen and libya as well as the future of the iran nuclear deal but this year at the

going richard allen duggan live for us and manila thank you. still to come on al-jazeera after a twenty year wait to local elections are finally coming to a village in southern nepal. from the waves of the sounds. to the contours of the east. hello there is quite a bit of stormy weather across europe at the moment most of it and with this cold here down to it the southeast is still hot it's still funny and it's still feeling very summery for this cooler though that's where we're seeing the storm systems first one here spiraling its way up towards the northeast as it does so it's bringing some very heavy rain some pretty strong winds as well and then just a little bit further to the west we're seeing lots of shop showers here well as of thunder and lightning mixed in with those as well as this system here in the
11:14 am
northeast gradually fizzle out as we head into chews day we're going to see another area of heavy rain begin to develop a bit further south so that's here paulus of northern italy and down through croatia here again we've already seen some pretty lively outbreaks of rain recently here and a fair amount of flooding will rain then on the cards but for the towards the south you can see the head generally flowing down from the northwest so it's not that hot now forcing tunas twenty seven degrees will be the maximum on choose day for about around twenty four for the east obviously still hotter than that in cairo we're still getting to around thirty five over the central belt of africa so it's a very heavy rains at the my sickly three parts of sudan and south sudan and working its way towards chad plenty more showers are expected to as we head through tuesday to. the way that sponsored by the time he's. in the house trying to run when news coverage consists of a punk you had a five second sound bite and an easy solution. down deep and says.
11:15 am
challenge the status quo expose double standards and debate the contradiction. joining me. for a new season of the show the frank. front. but this time i'll just say right. there watching al-jazeera here's a reminder of our top stories the commander in chief in myanmar is armed forces blending the hands of her the violence that sparked the refugee crisis and how heins says only her hainje of armed groups are being targeted and he accuses the ethnic minority of trying to build
11:16 am
a stronghold rakhine state. military chiefs of staff from twenty nine countries are meeting in seoul north korea's not officially on the agenda but the south is hoping to use the event to discuss how to calm regional tension the wife of pakistan's former prime minister nawaz sharif has won his parliamentary seat in the city of lahore a byelection was held two months after the supreme court disqualified sharif over allegations. general motors has announced the recall of more than two and a half million vehicles in china over concerns about airbags made by japanese giant to cut up all tear backs can and properly inflate and rupture potentially firing shrapnel pieces at drivers and passengers the defect has been linked to several deaths and scores of injuries around the world adrian brown joins us live now from beijing so a train yes this is an issue we have heard about before with this company what else do we know. yeah and the figures easter to sticks
11:17 am
in this story really are extraordinary because as you point out general motors has today announced it's recalling some two and a half million vehicles fitted with these airbags is concerned about the deflator as you pointed out but last week the volkswagen company announced that its chinese joint ventures were recalling some almost five million of their vehicles because of similar concern so that's what seven and a half million vehicles now china of course is the world's biggest auto market it has some thirty million vehicles on the road but this of course is raising concerns about you know the airbags in many of these cars now to carter has globally so far recalled more than one hundred million of these airbags seventy percent of those airbags were recalled in the united states and as you said there is concern about what happens to these air bags when they come under pressure it seems that they
11:18 am
simply explode and shower the driver with with tiny parts of trying to bits of shrapnel now there have been sixteen deaths worldwide linked to these bags and more than one hundred eighty injuries but it has to be pointed out there have been no injuries or deaths here in china so what general motors and volkswagen to doing are simply you know trying to reassure the public that you know they're doing what they can to correct this problem but you know it's going to create a huge backlog because you're going to have millions of vehicles now are being repaired now general motors invokes wagon so that the vehicles will be repaired for free but this is going to inconvenience motorists for months to come ok adrian brown seeing a trend thank you. by the end of this week marco could become german chancellor for a fourth term with uncertainty about what direction the united states is moving and
11:19 am
many countries are increasingly looking to germany to provide stable global leadership but germans remain wary of backing up their political power with military spending wisely reports. deep in the forest west of berlin nato is wargaming again one of its members has been attacked there are casualties and all the other states have joined in to help tend to the wounded the exercise is called vigorous warrior which hardly invokes the sort of fire and fury rhetoric of donald trump we are the host nation we are the nation for this exercise and of course we want to do it perfect we want to be a very good thoughts and i think we achieved a storm but we are not alone there are twenty five other nations and they all wrote . was in this exercise the generals watching come from twenty five nato allies and other invited states they know where germany's red lines have always been on
11:20 am
the battlefield this is where germany feels most comfortable helping out medical excellence logistical support that's all fine but when it comes to things like attacking other countries invading other countries killing people there is no appetite but all. this is heidelberg a perfect example of liberal educated germany where merkel support is guaranteed by the wealthy middle aged and middle class no doubt many take pride in the global admiration for the chancellor but asked them should germany back it up now with a more aggressive military position. i think germany and the rest of the world should be disarming i believe germany's doing enough for nato we shouldn't be spending any more. yeah but. it's a no brainer why germans don't like to be seen invading other countries the nazi scar has never healed when they pushed it like wrongly calling in an american air strike in afghanistan nearly ten years ago which mistakenly killed dozens of
11:21 am
civilians there was a national shockwave and the defense minister resigns the sorts of political guilt trip that doesn't happen in the us or u.k. nor is the most powerful country in europe impressed with how its neighbors have prosecuted wars in places like libya if we go in with military force it needs to be backed up and slanged by civilian measures as well so there is diplomatic there is civilian crisis management and there is also the idea of so what happens afterwards how do we rebuild a country which has not been necessarily the prime objective by recent interventions by other european countries u.s. president trump demands germany spend far more on defense merkel's opponents on the left say that would make an american stooge in a fragile world germany is looking for other solutions than war or easily al-jazeera in germany a local elections being held in a province of southern nepal after a twenty year wait local leaders and province to boycotted nationwide election
