u.k. marks one year since a deadly valen and knife attack that killed eight people at london bridge. the welcome to the program china is warning the us that any agreements between the two will be voided if donald trump goes ahead with his threat and tariffs u.s. commerce secretary wilbur ross held a trade talks in beijing with chinese leaders earlier in the day he praised his meetings with china's vice premier as friendly and frank that's despite the two countries threatening take for tat tariffs on goods worth up to one hundred fifty billion dollars each let's go live to john hendren in washington d.c. following this for us so tough words from the chinese any sign of compromise. well barbara that those talks may have been friendly and frank but they did not
10:02 pm
seem to be very effective errors no common ground between the two sides right now and that is because the chinese are objecting to those u.s. tariffs those tariffs were levied on electronic goods about fifty billion dollars of them and that is because the u.s. that is a penalty a sanction because the u.s. says that the chinese have been stealing u.s. technology or forcing u.s. companies to divulge that information about that technology in order to do business in china so they're going ahead with those sanctions and the chinese negotiators told wilbur ross that is simply unacceptable and that none of the things that they agreed to will go forward if those tariffs go ahead the u.s. insists that those tariffs will continue so no progress there wilbur ross comes home with empty hands and of course then there is the g. seven summit in canada ahead of that there's been a meeting there of leaders who are very upset that the u.s.
10:03 pm
has also insisted on levying sanctions on steel and aluminum that comes from mexico canada and europe and among the people who was most upset about that was the host of the g seven meeting coming up and that is justin trudeau the canadian prime minister this is what he had to say. first of all we're putting the same kinds of tariffs exactly on on steel and aluminum coming from the united states into canada to be directly reciprocal but we are also putting a number of tariffs on consumer goods finished products for which canadians have easy alternatives one of the either made in canada or made from another partner with the tariffs one of the truths about tariffs is they drive up costs for consumers and on top of that these tariffs are going to be hurting american workers and canadian worker the idea that we are somehow a national security threat to the united states is quite frankly insulting and unacceptable. now those are strong words coming from one of the united states'
10:04 pm
closest allies insulting and unexceptable that suggests that there will be rising tariffs on a number of levels you heard justin trudeau there talking about the level the tariffs the canadians would be leveling well the europeans are also looking at leveling penalties and they're picking iconic american products things like harley-davidson motorcycles florida or oranges levi's jeans and those are strategically targeted to be in republican areas make things that are made in areas of the country dominated by republican voters and that's right ahead of the upcoming midterm elections that's designed to hurt donald trump and his base of support for the big concern here is that this was a meeting the g. seven that was supposed to be celebrating the global economic expansion and people are now worried that if these tariffs go forward that that will slow down economic progress in the hopes of many of the leaders of the g seven that donald trump will
10:05 pm
eventually back off of those tariffs at least exempting the allies in canada mexico and europe but we'll see within a matter of days whether the heat comes off of this or whether those tariffs do indeed come up. yeah definitely be interesting to see how this develops for the moment john hendren in washington john thank you. trade unions in jordan have called for a one day strike next week amid a wave of protests against the government's plans to increase taxes that the structures are calling for the prime minister to resign over the reforms which would mean significantly higher tax for employees and companies and a huckster has more i fear the largest anti-government rallies in five years in what's regard as one of the most stable middle east countries the purchase movement initially started by trade unions has swelled nationwide as to show their
10:06 pm
frustration. but i want to love how local citizens now have no power the searching for the children's t.v. food women are looking in garbage containers to feed their kids and every day we are surprised by rising prices of new taxes the problem is not just the tax law the jordanian citizen right now. his pockets are empty are completely empty. so the government has to listen. to the sound of the people jordan is one of the most expensive. countries in the region and on the top of the wards too with no resources that's unjust to the people of jordan. the increase in sales tax and employees being taxed has infuriated the protestors and they want the government to resign. king abdullah has stood by prime minister despite calls to fire him the king's been instead calling for talks between m.p.'s and government ministers but

mask is said there is no indication that a trip has actually been set up the two countries have maintained good relations for decades united nations monitors have accused north korea of cooperating with syria on chemical weapons a charge that north korea denies it's go to slovenia an hour early results from the parliamentary elections show the rightwing anti immigration party led by the former prime minister janish winning more than a quarter of the votes that puts his party in the lead i am sure isn't on course to win an outright majority he says he wants to form a coalition but other party leaders have said they will refuse to work with him because of his immigration stance. but joining us now via skype from zagreb is luka oreskovich he's a research associate at harvard university sir thank you so much for joining us here on al-jazeera first of all just give us a little bit of an idea of yanis young. position in the polls right now it does
10:10 pm
look like he has a majority do you think it looks like he may be able to form a government so yeah hi thank you for having me. it looks like a very strong turnout in relative terms. you know strong twenty five twenty six seats in the parliament as it looks out eventually higher however the situation isn't as good when you look at the setup in the for the overall layout of the lay of the ground which is you have. after s.t.'s have essentially won over fifty seats and have all expressed or implicitly said that they are not willing to delete a coalition. and just remind this mean we've called it a sort of populist anti immigration party just remind us what the policies of the s.d.s. that's the party. are especially in relation to immigration is that what swung it
10:11 pm
when it comes to him having gotten the most votes. exactly so i think what's important to remember dancer is that he is coming into power if it he succeeds this time for all the dirty time and he's been around he's not the and the elite he's not somebody from the outside as he potentially fascist himself to be like the trump and takes over a tough rhetoric but he's been in power he's not as much as he claims he has and of course he isn't part of the let's say liberal center left of the government of enough or the larger part true although you know in various set ups and different led by different parties that being said he has a kind of an outside trustworthy you know independent that he touches insult to be however the tides have turned the electorate is hearing the voices are hungry after all and it's popular to you know go after go after and immigration policies
10:12 pm
laughter leads say that you will draw a crowd you know dream this far. being said he's a leader who has had a chance he hasn't done it so far will he do it design around the big question but the bigger question is can he even form a government because the opposition is on the other versified and at the same time a highly united against voting and to go in with him so he's facing an uphill battle if some of the numbers are quite remarkable remarkable an electorate of one point seven million and i believe there's twenty five parties to choose from certainly forming a coalition will be interesting but another statistic i found that was interesting was that the government that's exiting predicted a growth of five percent and economic growth of five percent which is quite respectable so why this anger i guess or you know this reaction in to and i'm an
10:13 pm
immigrant populist party if the economy seems to be doing ok or are those that this takes not reliable do you think. no more over i mean. this is confirmed by eurostar it's probably going to turn out the light the highest growth rate in the u. in two thousand and seventeen two thousand eight hundred years and downturn at all and it looks quite fair on the immigration side you know you've had tens of thousands of immigrants past. two hundred stage over two years two hundred not two hundred thousand so all in all this is more rhetoric than actual fundamentals but economics and security or immigration or you call it that being said what's important to know is that slovenia has consistently drought its twenty five years history as an independent country not voted for a government to stay in power for more than once and has the electorate has
10:14 pm
a strong tendency to switch sides and trade things up also to diversify its old so you have as you said many parties four former prime ministers leading their own parties with practically named after themselves the second party is a comedian that runs a small town that came up in the polls and is now the second biggest party in the country he's never had a single parliamentarian up until now so you are facing and looking at somebody of a disconnect between you know the reality of economic growth out of low risk of immigration and security these are the perception of the electorate to you know listen and vote for somebody who's willing to improve those things and never underestimate a comedian that becomes a political leader they seem to be doing quite well in europe these days for the moment that look out of it speaking to us from sacramento sir thank you thank you very much still to come here on al-jazeera more than fifty migrants drowned and
10:15 pm
thousands are rescued off particle and movie as they try to break your. and that the leaning tower of baghdad a symbol of how iraq so rich heritage is crumbling from neglect. the a. hello there we've got plenty of thunderstorms over europe still it's hope for many of us and we're also seeing also a very lively downpours one belt in the eastern part of our map and then plenty more further west this area of cloud and rain working its way across the valley arak island through parts of spain and up through parts of france as well and there is the risk that we could see some flash flooding out of this and some very large hail and gusty winds as well so this system still sticking around as we head through monday no massive change as we head through tuesday plenty of thunderstorms
10:16 pm
