al-jazeera. this is the news hour live from london thank you for joining us coming up in the next sixty minutes deadlock in efforts to avert a world trade war china warns all deals with the u.s. will be if washington imposes tyrants. the anti immigration party lead slovenia's election but may struggle to command the majority. unions call a one day strike in jordan as protests continue over tax hikes more than fifty migrants to drown and dozens are rescued off turkey and as they try to reach europe
12:01 am
. in sport brazilian strike in may moments the perfect return from injury three months after breaking his foots the strikers back scoring goals just insaan for the world cup. china is warning the u.s. that any agreements between the two will be voided if donald trump goes ahead with his threat and trade tariffs talks between u.s. commerce secretary wilbur ross and the chinese vice premier beijing and that without any specific new agreements have of this prime minister has called the new u.s. have so insulting and says canada is ready to impose its own tariffs in retaliation . first of all we're putting the same kinds of tariffs exactly on steel and aluminum coming from the united states into canada to be directly reciprocal but we are also putting
12:02 am
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 mike hanna joins us live now from washington d.c. mike hanna so canada there saying it feels insulted china are replying saying that basically all deals will be off what kind of response is coming out to these statements out of the u.s. well the u.s. at the moment shows no signs of any compromise whatsoever particularly with regard to the statements from the canadian prime minister saying that this is a national security risk is an insult to canada remembering as well that these
12:03 am
tariffs are being introduced against mexico as well now basically what we're hearing from the president's financial advisor always economics adviser larry could low is a doubling down on the contentious contention that the tariffs are a result of national security issues i don't think we're satisfied yet that they will protect or uphold all the shipments of steel coming into canada from around the world could be china could be brazil could be a lot of different places this trend shipping effort is thing that has been troubling to us look the president has declared our steel industry a national security matter. and mike i mean even during the campaign donald trump often spoke about china and you know basically how china had won over the united states on this issue but do you think the administration actually expected such a strong response from china to this and do you think this heralds an imminent
12:04 am
trade war with the country well or quite possibly might end yes the u.s. must have expected some kind of strong reaction from china particularly as it was just a few weeks ago that it appeared that a truce of kinds had been established between china and the u.s. in terms of tariffs in terms of trade agreements now the treasury secretary wilbur ross the commerce secretary will be russ has been holding talks in beijing with the chinese vice premier now those talks ended without agreement and that warning from china that should the u.s. go ahead and introduce a proposed tariffs then china will reciprocate with imposing tariffs against u.s. goods this could be immensely destructive to u.s. industry but there's also a political component to this as well is that in its ongoing discussions with china the u.s. was heavily reliant on support of its other allies precisely such as canada who share the u.s. concerns about chinese trade agreements now because of the separate terrible
12:05 am
speaking establish the u.s. is it stands a risk of losing these allies such as canada in its ongoing negotiations with china this is likely all to come to a head next week when the leaders meet in a g. seven summit in canada certainly they're going to be very strong words exchanged during that summit i bet my can i with the latest from washington d.c. mike thank you. stay in the u.s. the president donald trump's lawyer says he has the constitutional power to pardon himself but that's not planned to do so speaking to us media his a attorney and former new york mayor rudy giuliani noted the political ramifications of a self pardon would be severe a special council led by robert miller is investigating russia's role in the two thousand and sixteen election and what the problem obstructed justice well it's not going to happen so it's a hypothetical point i think the presidential power there's nothing that limits the
12:06 am
presidential power of pardon from a federal crime not a state crime. president trump is not going to do that he's obviously not going to give up any of his pardon powers or any other future president's pardon powers but in these circumstances he's not going to do that pardoning himself would just be unthinkable and it would it would it would lead to probably an immediate impeachment you know you get your house now going to be under tremendous tremendous pressure. president has no need to do that you do anything wrong. now a right wing party led by former prime minister younis young has won the most votes in sabina's parliamentary election with ninety percent of ballots counted slovenian democratic party has received around twenty five percent of the vote in second place the center left party of shad it says trailing with twelve percent the spread is leave though young may struggle to form a government because he won't have an outright majority and the other party leaders of said that they won't work with him because of his anti immigrant policies or for
12:07 am
more on the outcome of this election that speak to. be ten she's a political commentator and joins us now via skype from luxembourg thank you so much for joining us here on al-jazeera so young undisputedly wall in the sense that he's got the most votes twenty five percent of the vote and yet other party leaders don't want a coalition with him because of his anti immigrant stance so what was it about these policies gratian policies that make him so unpopular with other potential allies. specific to slovenia in the first of all thank you for having me on their program specific isn't just living you know this has less to do with young shows and immigrant policies as it has to do with the negative and comforting in experience most party leaders have had with young throughout he's and their political career and she is a very divisive politician huey either he does not that he rarely he tarlac
12:08 am
tolerates dissent both within a party and within any possible coalitions and political cohabitation with him has been disastrous for more or less any party that has attempted better for. the other party leaders are loath to form a coalition with him and yet should be noted that now the cards have been dealt. there are there would be severe pressures so both from. either party membership or maybe a special interest by supporting various parties or various factions within the parties to come to some sort of an agreement between you and show or be it with other parties which are very fractured if today's vote is to go by i mean it may be that it takes quite a while to form a coalition but the result is quite clear and it does seem that even though he is
12:09 am
a politician with a past and whenever you know you've been in power for for some time it's always easier to criticize when you have a haven't done and yet we're still seeing him as by far the biggest party and it does seem that it's on an anti immigrant take it that he got the support and he's not alone look at poll and look at hungry look at italy who's anti immigrant leader mantissa vinnie's now the interior minister so what was it about slovenia that swayed the vote in that direction. it was yeah shows sort of or rather as the s. not just to him personally they bested various narratives in the months coming. leading up to the election and surprisingly. bit with with his base the end that immigrant narrative first thought best and they more or less went with that. it was a. combined with with help from karen leader of victor oregon
12:10 am
this was a very persuasive argument for turned out that twenty five percent of those who caused the vote. the other factor is that the turnout barely reached fifty two percent which. sort of. helps to divide the vote the way the way it was divided now and it will definitely leads as well that is provided young men are just before a government it will mean that you know will for the first seal the future be sort of. put in the direction of that we should vote for. whether or not there so we were lost again remains to be seen because the care and danger of coalition governments is that there are. prone to compromise or of fractured.
12:11 am
ideas panga of the tension political commentator s.p. us from luxembourg sir thank you for sharing your views with us thank you. still to come here on the al-jazeera news hour reports the syrian president could be the latest in a lineup of high profile visitors to north korea mourners gathered to mark the one year anniversary of that the attacks at the bridge and then sports the u.s. open champion produces her best ever performance at the french open. trade unions in jordan have called for a one day strike next week after talks with the government failed to end the standoff over a new i.m.f. backed tax law now there have been days of angry protests across jordan with them strangers calling for the prime minister to resign the proposed law would significantly hike taxes on employees and companies and the hawks star has more.
12:12 am
they're 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 frustration i. asked my mum how local was a 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 with 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
12:13 am
employees being tax move has infuriated the protestors and they want the government to resign. king abdullah has stood by prime minister hani milky despite. calls to fire him the king's been instead calling for talks between m.p.'s and government ministers but moki is under international pressure to reform jordan's economy and cut its thirty seven billion dollars debt that is equivalent to ninety five percent of g.d.p. . the international monetary fund approved a seven hundred million loan to jordan two years ago to lower public debt and increase growth jordan relies heavily on financial help from the u.s. u.a.e. and until recently saudi arabia which has cut funding king abdullah is a key u.s. ally in the strategically important region which borders syria israel and iraq regional time or has worsened the kingdom's money problems and it sheltering one point four million syrian refugees not according to the hashemite government and
12:14 am
those refugees look no closer to returning home. has a large population of refugees from the war in iraq plus two million palestinian refugees have settled in the kingdom. the king recently reversed plans to raise petrol prices foreign protests and these latest protests against austerity measures are further demands for change. there. a french newspaper is reporting that saudi arabia is threatening military action against catheter if it acquires russian weapons le figaro newspaper says the saudi crown prince has written to u.s. president donald trump and british prime minister three's a may to warn that it is ready to retaliate if kept out acquires the s four hundred anti aircraft the fence system it was revealed he had written a similar letter to the french president i know of a call on friday that doesn't bassett or to moscow said back in january that his country intended to acquire the missile system just
12:15 am
a jog in memory saudi arabia along with the u.a.e. and bahrain cut off relations with qatar last june and the blockade has been standing since well joining us now in the studio is below who is a journalist and analyst with the gulf matters thank you so much for being with us here as the first news broke on friday and it was just france that we're seeing that actually pressure is being put on the u.k. and the u.s. as well i mean first of all is this pressure going to have any kind of. any kind of change because the europeans powers powers especially it's kind of been standing back from the gulf crisis yeah it's an odd thing isn't it because those who begins with going to macron and then to the washington then we're told to to to london why would you go to the russians this is a question that i don't understand which is that simply if you're upset about the russians selling this s. four hundred a very sophisticated missile defense system to the qatar is why don't you go to the russian and say look because the russians are already in
12:16 am
a deal with the saudis on selling this system to the saudis they've already sold it to the turks for two point five billion they're in the process of doing a deal with the egyptians and the saudis can simply say if you go ahead with this. you don't have to deal with us well and it's perplexing to me why they have taken such an. one assume and correct me if i'm wrong that perhaps they have that done that already with the russians and the russians well the that's one that's one take on it but it would seem to me that the way this story is coming out that these letters have been sent it's an odd way to do business anyway isn't send a letter to. president micron saying would you please intervene to stop and do this i mean why do you go to macron first pursued because macros are useful in the whole herd incident he stepped in it and got the saudis and particularly been summoned out of a spot of bother over that situation mario was affectively kidnapped and held. it
12:17 am
was mike carona worked out a deal to get him back to lebanon. i mean it's coming up i think the anniversary is very soon of very night here you know when you hear all of the blockade against qatar and now we're seeing this threat which is saudi arabia threatening military action against god i mean how realistic is this threat. well i think you have to think about arms deals they always take a long time so it may be quite some time for the cutter was actually caught this missile defense system the saudis for example didn't blink an eye when we in the u.k. did a big sale of typhoon fighters twenty four times from fighters in december of last year you know upset there i don't think the threat is that serious i think it's all part of the posturing that's going on and clearly whereas the outside world the u.k. the europeans we here the americans rather want to see this dispute settled. this saudis and the iraqis keep upping the ante i think the qataris have said look we'll
12:18 am
sit down have a conversation let's have a dialogue and they had to keeps getting pushed up by the saudis and the amorality so i think what we're seeing here is a bit of gamesmanship to put more pressure on qatar using this as weapons dealers as part of that for what you're saying it seems to be that you don't think that we're looking at an end to this blockade anytime soon no i don't do is no sign whatsoever that there's any back down from have been. the crown prince of a dobie i think that the cost to his would like to see it end i think the americans would like to see it and certainly the state department and the pentagon we were not on trial they had awful lot of well i don't trump is hacked off indeed so yeah there is there is but none of that pressure has achieved any movement in fact it it's almost perversely gone the other way and it becomes becoming more and more entrenched below journalist and on a list of go fighters thank you so much. it's going to tunisia now with the defense
12:19 am
ministry says it's recovered forty six bodies after a boat carrying refugees and migrants sank into the port city of. responding to a distress call the navy and national guard rescued another sixty eight of the people on board to this is increasingly popular departure point for illegal boats heading across the mediterranean the southern europe and in a separate incident nine people including six children have died after their speed boat sank while crossing from turkey to the greek islands five people were rescued by the pope by the coast guard and fisherman well meanwhile italy's new interior minister has vowed that sicily will no longer be what he called europe's refugee camp so beany made the comments in one of the main arrival points for refugees and migrants making crossing from north africa one hundred fifty eight people landed there on friday after being rescued in the mediterranean so the me has already promised to reduce the number of arrivals and increase the number of expulsions has
12:20 am
more from rome. as if to make a provocative point. italy's new interior minister turned up to one of the hot spots in italy's refugee crisis that is one of the. poorer areas the points of a rival where refugees and asylum seekers turn the city ports are low in sicily there he said that he wanted to stop this chile from being europe's refugee center strong rhetoric as you will designed to appeal to his supporters but not everyone who turned up to see him was necessarily convinced by his argument there were a handful of protesters there saying that really what was needed to be seen was the difficulties that people face exactly what it was that was driving them to italy in the first place and that is of course many of them the war destitution and repression but of course mr selby's keen to point out that this is a first move as the interior minister he wants to show italy and also to
12:21 am
a certain extent the european union that he wants to play hardball with this he is in the coming weeks post to be meeting up in brussels with other european union interior ministers what he wants is renegotiation on the doppler accord that is to put an end to people turning up to the first e.u. member state and claiming asylum there he says that puts italy that unfair position but whether he's able to do this in the face of of the european union is another matter. this thing in its leaves of the leader of the five star movement as the new coalition will overhaul the last government's controversial labor reforms are they didn't explain how the jobs act made it easier for big firms to fire people and offer them tax incentives to hire permanent workers or new less protected terms it aimed to create jobs and help young people employed on insecure short term contracts but it had mixed results with most of the new jobs created still

the main mediators in the ongoing political crisis but the archdiocese says they will no longer facilitate a national dialogue until the nicaraguan government can commit to putting an end to the violence. there is korea's state news agency says the syrian president bashar al assad is planning a visit to kim jong un in pyongyang the comments haven't been confirmed by the mascot's and 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 the north denies well i'm sure tablet is a senior fellow at the washington institute for near east policy and the author of in the lion's den he joins us now via skype from san francisco thank you so much for joining us here on al-jazeera so the news is coming out from north korea's state news agency so it's pretty obvious that kim jong un wants this news to get
12:26 am
out and this of course just over a week before that meeting is due to take place with president donald trump why do you think kim jong un is letting this be known now. it's a very good question a couple of thoughts why both north korea in syria are pariah state they have a long term relationship militarily politically even directly with each other north korea uses as use syria to clip arrayed missiles a nuclear program which israel famously bombed in two thousand and seven and also has been developed chemical weapons it's a way interesting way to stick a sort of finger in the eye of the united states in the west time when ironically that north korea and the united states are sitting down to talk but so what do you think each side would want from this meeting is it really just a show. i think it's a show i think it's largely rhetorical but there is
12:27 am
a military bases to it syria needs weapons it needs weapons to stand up against its perceived regional allies which are many now. adversaries and so therefore it's going to be looking to north korea for what it does best giving it missile systems other kinds of cyber chemical and perhaps even nuclear. capabilities and giving them to syria to project its power into to the rest of the region you know what's interesting is that right now it's all a bit vague so there is a visit that's being planned and there's been no confirmation from the syrian regime but it will be interesting to see what reaction if there is one well come out of the united states that they sow do you think president trump will handle this or should handle this. well i don't think that the reason why the u.s. was sitting down with north korea has to do specifically with syria i don't think washington would like it but will it interrupt the talks probably not i can i think
12:28 am
we need to look at the larger picture here and that is the attempt to talk about north korea's nuclear program is one thing its. activities political political weapons throughout the world is another issue in one that i think the united states will continue to deal with and confront north korea over have their senior fellow at the washington institute for near east policy sir thank you so much for sharing your views with us thank you. still to come on the al-jazeera news hour the first convoy of trucks the parts kenya's oil rich turkana region as the country tries to capitalize on its reserves. filling the food void why iran is stepping in to help qatar is a supply problem as the gulf war hate reaches its one year mark and in sports the washington capitals take control of the stanley cup finals as they stay on target for a first ever championship title. the

12:40 am
used to export two to three truckloads of food to qatar a week since the blockade began demand has soared to two to three truckloads a day. farms like this all over iran have increased production to fill the gap in the country market after saudi arabia the u.a.e. and other countries severed supply routes what caused a shock in qatar is an opportunity for iranian businesses but so there are the need of a ronnie says profits are not the only reason exporters are keen to supply cut those markets you know last time you're not guided by me. i'm saying this from the bottom of my heart we'd like katarina people we don't feel that our neighboring countries and islamic countries are separate from us we consider them as a religious brothers and we are happy that this market exists for us to supply it it's embarrassing for us to say that we are helping qatar we are two brothers at one table and are eating from one table and we are happy that today qatari brothers
12:41 am
are with us at one table. with business links all over the world the exporter says the blockade is bad for everyone in the region and hopes it ends soon. you can find a little bit of everything here fruits vegetables basic necessities being grown here in iran and will eventually end up in the homes of people living in. iran in qatar have had serious disagreements over the wars in syria and yemen and iranian support for hezbollah in lebanon but they speak with one voice in support of the palestinian people and share the world's largest natural gas field and in the last year disputes with saudi arabia have brought them closer together. we felt qatar was being treated unfairly so we opened our doors we let qatar airways use our airspace and we used five important ports in the south of the country to send our help relations with qatar have a bright horizon because our qatari friends are well aware about the intentions of our officials. served as iran's ambassador to qatar he says both countries can
12:42 am
cooperate on much more but he admits the appearance of siding too openly with iran is tricky because there is home to the largest american air base in the middle east and u.s. central command headquarters cozying up to run also further anger blockading countries and escalate tensions even more. leaders the last year has been a delicate balancing act but whatever happens next people living in qatar are unlikely to forget the neighbors willing to lend a hand when they needed it most. they marks one year since the began we're going to have a special program looking at the political economic and human impact of the crisis . is they right here on their. residents of a libyan town will be allowed to return home for the first time in almost seven years
