8:02 am
to consider canada a security risk the united states and therefore we've taken a targeted and considered approach to retaliation france's foreign minister also says unless the u.s. reverses its new tariffs on steel and aluminum from europe canada and mexico a trade war is just a few days away. at a meeting ahead of this week's g. seven summit in canada u.s. treasury secretary stephen moore nugent tried to his ways the allies president trump has been very clear in wanting to address trade issues i don't think in any way the u.s. is abandoning its leadership in the global economy quite the contrary i think we have very broad objectives that are that are across a rebalancing the trade relationship and the trade deficit but he could not offer the one thing u.s. allies want tariff relief trump briefed by minucci and is not backing down taking to twitter on saturday he wrote when you're almost eight hundred billion dollars

a year down on trade you can't lose a trade war many economists disagree they say everyone loses in a trade war because a vicious cycle of tariffs makes goods more expensive all around now some u.s. companies say they fear a trade conflict could end the global economic expansion the upcoming g. seven meeting was expected to celebrate our estimates at this point and these are very rough but we would expect another ten to fifteen percent drop and we're also suffering because of the steel tariffs which was the genesis of all this everything we do involves steel our fencing everything else is steel related so we're seeing increased prices from those things too so it is kind of a domino effect european leaders have already chosen their targets for retaliation iconic american products like harley-davidson motorcycles levi's jeans jack daniels whiskey in florida oranges the next casualties in what could be an escalating trade

conflict john hendren al-jazeera washington. all about g seven meeting steve milligan said the u.s. is also pushing for strong changes to china's economy those talks are being led by u.s. commerce secretary wilbur ross he arrived in beijing on saturday he says meetings have been friendly and frank so far the u.s. wants china to buy a more american goods to reduce its trade deficit flaws louis as well from beijing u.s. president donald trump has said he wants to reduce the trade deficit with china by about two hundred billion dollars within the next two years and u.s. officials are pro proposing a couple of ways to do this one way is to get the chinese to buy more u.s. products there's already a commitment by china to substantially increase their purchase of u.s. agricultural and energy products but u.s. officials will now want to push for a specific target as well as for the chinese to enter into long term contracts
8:05 am
which you chinese officials have so far been reluctant to commit to and then u.s. officials have said they also want to see structural changes in the chinese economy and they've long complained about unfair trade practices a large part of this complaint centers around intellectual property rights and of course there's the issue of chinese government subsidies which many countries say encourage overproduction by chinese companies and allowing cheap chinese products to flood global markets so these are the sort of structural changes that u.s. officials are going to want to think but these are going to be very difficult to achieve even in the longer term however any failure to come up with any sort of agreement could see a trait dispute escalate into an all out trade war which will be detrimental to the global economy. now the u.s. says north korea will only get sanctions relief after it takes verifiable and irreversible steps to need nuclear eyes ation rather defense secretary james mattis

8:17 am
well over the years the last good couple of to give a good go to has been during india and when i say but there's an interesting in india i mean the economic condition of servitude and to do it but action has been going to go so what has happened is that the income of most has admitted almost a static for the last ten years or so is recent. and this is by the media you are which is the governments of men in body as a said when he pleaded did that begin to cause them to live in two thousand and fifteen sixteen an example fave years the increase in the of the of the income of most was less than half a percent zero point four percent to be exact and then if you look at all of the many bodies or other statistics it tells us that people who also breed resistance you exactly how much of money has got to be diligent coming to the village as you know and then you would have been done something when it had been negative of you say a good job but i guess the bridges but they don't last for years distressed but they're
8:18 am
done so clearly that agriculture is becoming a losing proposition and farmers so they'll put in had to give it a let me jump in here successive governments have had load and have had several loan write offs and why isn't that working. well let's be very clear about this that what the successive governments have been good enough so far is only a fraction of the outstanding loans even if you've got to write off all the little ones that would actually be equal to the a lot of like of our steps in that we do for the got but it's almost a year every two three years not the one i'm going to make is that in this country what we have acting all of it yes it is a fraction the beat is if we did not get done most of that income that this is due to them they have no other option but to do more good so good after good credit of the good gift of the good you know dismal ignorance and it's no good to live in debt all to your life and this is what is happening in their farmers in india as
8:19 am
always what is the what is the solution then some farmers are asking for subsidies is that the way forward. but i'm not saying subsidies what exactly india needs to really focus on to bring a bit closer back onto the ins is basically two things first of all on the end of law and that is spending against farmers needs to be struck down on a one group once you do that you get a way to clean sleep who did you work on again and then we bring in economic policies that ensure that the farmers do not do the same back in book into debt again there is this possibility yes what we need is to set up the farmers income commission if i wasn't the commission because short of that the evidence farming soared in the in in india a good would get it assured income and i'm going to vote on it and used to be you have got it dead it can definitely get in thousand rupees in a bun is what farmers are worth for a living. or a living income but this is something which the government of india has to do because there's no other option you have like everything in this country and
8:20 am
nothing as a book and the next nobody the best of countries that base your automatic up there their farmers are surviving not because of hyper activity of yes and i mean because of that message government support including that income support so in india also farmers not need that it didn't come support farmers have been producing economic events for the country it is time that the country is back i just know thanks for your thoughts on that given the sharma that. a loss a linked group in the southern philippines is expanding its presence just seven months after its fighters with defeated following a siege in the city of mar our group is now recruiting children displaced and often by the conflict jamil and organ reports from our city. in the bring him is fourteen years old and lives in an evacuation camp with his father he says a group of men approached him a few weeks ago they told him they were police officers and invited him to join
