10:03 pm
escalation impunity of measure as against china there must be concern in washington about that but also about china's retaliation. right there certainly is concern about china's retaliation and china has made it known that it will retaliate more of the areas that is of major concern could hit america's farmers and of course donald trump has really found himself in the white house because of support by rural americans essentially what we've got here is the united states promising now to slap tariffs on chinese imports into the united states on consumer goods like apparel but also the high tech industry that list hasn't been made public but it could be up to one hundred different items and china is promising in turn to perhaps target in its own way to on u.s. imports to china like soybeans as well as pork products now this is of major concern to american farmers it's also a concern to many on capitol hill who say this is not the time to be doing this and
10:04 pm
it could have the opposite of the desired effect which is what donald trump says he's trying to sort of control and rein in rectify this deficit a trade deficit that he said is hurting american workers but many democrats and some republicans say that it could hurt the very workers donald trump says he's looking out for. right and so. they also then concerns about how u.s. allies might react because the problem about these measures is that it's also particular this deal out of many i'm tariffs that has a much greater impact on u.s. politicians. i think a lot of people are really confused right now maryam because you remember when those steel and aluminum tariffs were first announced it was really very broad without any carve outs as they're called or exemptions for certain countries we heard them that there would be exemptions for canada and mexico as this negotiation of nafta is taking place and now we're hearing from the u.s. trade representative the list of countries exempt is much broader including some
10:05 pm
european countries so i think there's some frustration in this constantly evolving protest to trade policy that we're seeing from this white house and that is leaving many american allies not only frustrated but looking for what action they can take moving forward and i thank you very much committee at the white house well china has repeatedly vowed to retaliate if the u.s. puts up trade barriers. has more on this now from beijing from shanghai china on thursday reiterated that they will defend their interests at all costs and they have said in the past that it's unrealistic that the trade between the two nations being a requirement that it's even that's something that donald trump is trying to do now in the past they have said if there is any tariffs coming from the united states they will retaliate it's been reported that the retaliation is probably going to be kind of slow and steady and overarching but we really won't know exactly what that kind of retaliation is based on what was announced in washington until friday at
10:06 pm
the very earliest. donald trump's tyrus is one of the issues topping the agenda in brussels a european union leaders have gathered for a summit leaders are also discussing trade jobs competitiveness breaks it and the nerve agent attack on a russian film a spine person the u.k. prime minister to resign may's leaders to unite and condemn russia after accusing the kremlin of targeting sergei scriptural and his daughter. this month. obama b. phillips is in brussels for us and we've just been discussing the new tires that are being imposed on chinese goods in the u.s. but of course this comes off the back of steel and alan minium tariffs that were going to have a big effect on u.s. allies and partners though is there much relief that that the e.u. could be exempt. i think there is yes donald toast the european council president spoke just
10:07 pm
a short time ago he said that the news from washington was expected that's because the european union trade commissioner says syria was over there negotiating hard earlier in the week so it had been expected here but that you need as with carry on the digesting the news as it were over dinner and he would give us a full update tomorrow friday he just very briefly said protectionism is bad it's a risk to the global economy it's a risk to jobs not just here in europe and we need to have a dialogue with the united states that is the event that is the european position where we see continuing tensions over trade and of course tensions continue to plan out as well between the u.k. and russia of the second script help poisoning what's been happening with that today. well i think that the british have come here with
10:08 pm
a very clear agenda which is to rally support behind britain against russia and to make it clear that what is the e.u. twenty eight for now speaks as one you might recall many on that the e.u. foreign ministers statement. last week whilst expressing solidarity with britain didn't point the finger necessarily at russia and said russia had questions to answer so the british i think would like things to go further there but they have. one or two vulnerabilities as well not least the fact of course that the they're going through the acrimonious bret's it process that asking for solidarity from an organization which they are in the process of leaving and that that's problematic and i just think any way the geopolitics of europe twenty eight countries spanning from the republic of ireland to the turkish border you're going to get very very
10:09 pm
different perspectives on russia so so greece for example italy hungry much more sympathetic to the russian point of view than the british in the past let's hear what treason may had to say on the way into the summit here in brussels. but i will also be talking about today's not just what happened on the streets of seoul history but the fact that we do see this as part of a pattern of russian aggression against europe and its neighbors as i said from the western balkans to the middle east this is a subject we have to stress for for and i look forward to further discussions with my european colleagues and i'm grateful for that for the solidarity and support that they've shown the united kingdom. meanwhile city itself mario about that will be discussed tomorrow friday to reason they won't take part in those discussions and for once i don't think it's going to be a very contentious at this point at this point in time you might say that the difficult issues have been kicked down the road again but i think there is
