a global trade war now the trumpet ministration claims the move is justified saying reliance on imported metals is a threat to national security but its targets are some of america's closest allies and their threatening retaliation french president called the u.s. action illegal his foreign minister says america first is becoming america alone mexico's economy minister described the terrorists as in comprehensible and a worst case scenario there's also opposition at home republican senator bob corker call the move an abuse of all thora t. he urged the president to cooperate with u.s. allies white house correspondent kimberly hell get his more. u.s. commerce secretary wilbur ross made the announcement from paris where he was attending an annual trade forum. tariffs of twenty five percent on steel and ten percent on aluminum imports into the united states from canada mexico and the

european union all go into effect friday the move potentially sets in motion a trade war with some of the united states' most important allies a claim the u.s. commerce secretary brushed off everybody has every known and. every country with others who. are of. course in brussels the head of the european commission called it a bad day for world trade promising counter measures that could include retaliatory tariffs u.s. goods into the e.u. on everything from blue jeans to motorcycles what they can do able to do exactly. the same it's totally up to the it comes. when it comes to. create france's junior trade minister promised
3:08 am
a similar response suggesting the u.s. president may be misinformed. that comes a point when one needs to look at the figures and i'm surprised that maybe president trump stuff haven't shown him how much those european companies have invested in the united states created jobs that to assemble and produce the now those u.s. jobs could be at risk just as president donald trump seeks to fulfill one of his top campaign promises to protect the jobs of his supporters in america's steel and aluminum manufacturing sectors it's not just international partners criticizing donald trump's decision to oppose steel and aluminum tariffs on top you. us allies domestically members of president trumps own republican party are also criticizing him fear of the effects of a global trade war despite white house efforts to downplay those concerns can

really help get al-jazeera at the white house well reaction to the u.s. move has been particularly strong in canada mexico america's partners in the nafta trade agreement john holdren reports from mexico city. after the u.s. put the squeeze on neighbors and trading i know it's mixed going canada imposing steel dollar million tariffs retaliation quickly followed both announced dollar for dollar surcharges on u.s. imports these tariffs are totally unacceptable canadian prime minister justin through and his foreign minister chrystia freeland denounce the us is actions this is sixteen point six billion dollars of retaliation this is the strongest trade action canada has taken in the post-war era first of all mexico's economic minister called this the worst case scenario and said the country would put tariffs on some u.s. steel products apple's grapes pull in cheese today we take action
3:10 am
at the moment to compensate. it without mentioning it down to mexico experts on this dilemma but this dispute was the last thing either country wanted with a powerful and until recently mostly friendly neighbor the kind of the terrorists will hit the tinkly hard about ninety percent of its head south of the border it's the us is biggest supplier but mexico also is one of the top exporters of steel to the united states despite that both its going canada insist trade flows do work to the us is favor to them the decision by the troubled ministration just doesn't make sense. like there's no economic justification at the end of the day you see that mexico has a deficit with the u.s. in any lineaments deal that we can see more from them than we exhaust and moreover in sectors that are essential to their company but there's another element to this
3:11 am
washington's insistence the three countries are renegotiating the nafta free trade agreement the u.s. wants to see more concessions from mexico and canada they both emphasize that there's still claim to talk but added that there retaliatory measures will remain in place as long as the u.s. terrorists do join homan. mexico city. the u.s. secretary of state says he's made great progress in his talks with one of north korean leader kim jong il's closest aides by pompei and has met kim jong yong shoes in new york for a second day now those talks are supposed to smooth the way for a summit between donald trump and kim jong il in less than two weeks time but pompei refused to confirm it'll actually happen our diplomatic editor james bates has more. a second day of intense diplomacy between the u.s. secretary of state and the north korean envoy who met for almost two and a half hours reporters watched the comings and goings at the apartment block where
3:12 am
the u.s. government owns a residence on the thirty ninth floor state department officials were very cautious in what they said but one man was not as restrained the u.s. president who spoke as the meeting was still under way revealing for the first time that general kim will now head to the white house good morning i just want to tell you we're doing very well with north korea our secretary of state has had very good meetings he's meeting again today. i believe they'll be coming down to washington on friday and a letter is going to be delivered to me from him john. the president said the summit in singapore if it takes place could be the first of perhaps two or three meetings between him and kim jong later secretary pump aoe sidestepped questions about whether the two sides have the same definition of denuclearization and seemed
3:13 am
well aware of the scale of the challenge ahead this is going to be a process that will take days and weeks to work our way through there will be tough moments there will be difficult times i've had some difficult conversations with them as well. they've given right back to me to reporters had been led to believe that these crucial negotiations would only be taking place here at this apartment block in new york but now there is another phase and an unpredictable element president trump himself at the white house general kim is carrying a letter which he will open there from his leader kim jong il and james al-jazeera new york story has many moving parts across the. pride in seoul of course rob while the talk remains quite positive in new york city it sort of still lacks the detail for an eager press corps and a very expectant global audience. absolutely very little
3:14 am
detail at all but the fact that the talks are happening there is this in gage meant that this very high level i think that will be taken as an encouraging sign especially here in south korea where this policy of engagement first began all those long months ago you do get the sense pompei oh they're saying they're trying to overcome decades of mistrust but you get the sense that these two pompei zero and kim if they are going to have a breakthrough it will be with their dialogue their discussions these are men who very much stand in their bosses shoes they seem to have the full confidence of their leaders and can lay out their country's positions and they go see a those positions we can only guess at what the possible stumbling blocks are but we can assume that there will be problems over the definition of denuclearization the pace of the process of denuclearization and then of course as far as the north koreans are concerned the whole question of sanctions they want to see some kind of
3:15 am
economic relief or relief from these sanctions very early on in the process that is something that a lot of the more hawkish americans will be against but in that position they have been given a boost by a visit to north korea by the foreign minister of russia sergei lavrov the russians obviously not wanted to be left out of the action his visit thirty third day did seem to support north korea's position. this was kim jong un's first meeting with a senior russian diplomat since coming to power. another first in the diplomatic dance of increasing complexity foreign minister sergei lavrov invited kim to add to his busy summit schedule and visit moscow but it was lavrov the parents' support for kim's position in readiness for his summit with u.s. president donald trump that will be the most welcome outcome for north korea. said north korea must get relief from sanctions and quickly. it is absolutely obvious
3:16 am
that starting any discussion of the nuclear problem and all other programs on the korean peninsula they cannot be complete without repealing all sanctions on north korea how that will go ahead will be a question of the skill of the negotiators but it cannot be done in one sitting u.s. officials based in seoul have been in near daily discussions with their north korean counterparts at the truce village apartment john that's in the demilitarized zone separating the two koreas. how much progress has been made is unknown or whether north korea's stated commitment to denuclearization comes with a specific timetable and a process for verification that's acceptable to the u.s. i think north korea wants to strachan this process of democratization for as long as possible the very i can now you magine them agreeing to a near term timetable or line to completely dismantle their nuclear weapons but
3:17 am
sensing a possible historic breakthrough russia doesn't want to be left on the sidelines just as chinese president xi jinping recent meetings with kim the russians want to exert the kind of influence they feel they deserve. well manders robert all of this optimism is really feeding into the into korean negotiations that are also taking place alongside the sort of north korean u.s. negotiations that's right the team the u.s. team that has been negotiating in panmunjom that the truce village they weren't at meetings thursday they have not left their hotel this morning friday local time but we are expecting talks we in fact the team has already left of south korean officials with their north korean counterparts this picks up on the into korean dialogue there are lots of dialogues as you can imagine lots of streams of
3:18 am
communication these were put on hold with the downturn in relations the spat of a couple of weeks ago with the military exercises that were taking place but these are talks which are meant to implement the panmunjom declaration that was of course signed at the end of april between the leaders of north and south korea things like working together on economic cooperation joining up of railway lines and highways that have been cut by the d.m.z. for all these years also more immediately things like the reunification of families that were separated by the korean war so those talks are taking place the team has already left they say they're optimistic about getting progress today friday but of course all of this very much depends on what is taking place in the negotiations between the u.s. and north koreans in new york and now on to washington so how will we leave it there for now rob of course and keep a close eye on events with you on the korean peninsula thank you. the u.n. security council has given itself sudan's warring factions a month to reach
3:19 am
a peace deal or face possible sanctions it's voted to adopt a u.s. led resolution which threatens an arms embargo against the defense chief and five other officials south sudan descended into civil war in twenty thirteen when the president salva kiir accused his then deputy rick i'm assured of plotting a coup hit morgan has the latest from south sudanese capital juba. nine countries have voted in favor of renewal of sanctions against us and officials and six countries have abstained now to get those full with the u.s. which has been pushing for the votes had to watch it and the.
