in the future in negotiations for better. a better deal the french president said the iran nuclear deal wasn't perfect but should remain the basis for a wider agreement because there's a need if we think it's not enough it's a useful building block better than what we have a full of the best things to keep it because as we say a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush with you so i agree with you c.p.o. isn't enough but it's better than what we had before all iran says it's boosting its uranium enrichment in case the twenty fifteen deal collapses the head of iran's atomic agency said it informed the united nations that work had begun on home court a rule of austerity right now ideological infrastructure and utilities and the towns are ready for hundreds of thousands of asked w. years. the deal limited iran's nuclear activities in return for lifting sanctions united since the u.s. withdrawal last month european leaders have been trying to salvage hughes and find

8:56 am
communities in the shadow of month been destroyed and rescuers have been sifting through hot ash and daybreak and search of survivors they would most as more now from a school in guatemala close to the volcano. this morning we went to the this disaster site and it was a few hours before we were actually allowed in all of the press was held back because of some modern explosions that had been happening in the early hours of the moaner of the morning from the flag of all kaino we were eventually allowed in and it's still a very sort of eruptive situation in a number of different ways quite quite a dangerous situation we came down to do some other filming and while we were down here very close to the location where we are right now we heard that there was a new explosion and there was more of this pyrotechnic material that had come shooting down the volcano and out we could see the evacuation taking place we could see all of the emergency vehicles that were filing down onto the highway where we are right now and so they got everybody who was working out of there mediately it
8:57 am
was quite controlled but then from there things seemed to spiral a little bit out of control and there was lots of rumors in the city of us when that which is a big city that that the whole city was being evacuated and that was absolutely chaos in the streets and people were going to all sorts of different directions with all of the belongings they could possibly carry stuffed into backpacks some were heading towards el salvador others were heading towards the national stadium so really chaotic scene since then things have calmed down quite a bit and they explain that that was a false evacuation order and also news that it happened for the city of us went but certainly the communities that are close to the volcano have been told to leave because of the possibility of more activity the the ash is still incredibly hot the ash i mean there's a couple of meters of ash that have covered this entire town and it's very hot you feel it coming up through the soles of your feet if you don't have proper boots on and it can really it can really lead to a lot of heat blisters and things like that so they've got these hot conditions we're down near the coast of guatemala where in the tropics of course there's the
8:58 am
sun and the general heat they're having to contend with and then there are these other explosions so you know you just start getting work working on getting a house dug out and then suddenly you hear a whistle and you have to run out and hop in a car and drive down to the highway so that's certainly hampering issues. there's more fallout from donald trump's decision to impose tariffs on its trade as you never tell it remove mexico's says it will levy fifteen to twenty five percent tariffs on steel and agricultural imports in the u.s. the mexican government's also complained to the world trade organization the white house says it may pull out of talks to really give shape the north american free trade agreement choosing to deal separately with mexico and canada head to pose a latin america political analyst he says although nobody stands to gain from a trade war may be about unity for mexico to diversify its economy. it's a it's completely a turnaround in terms of how the trump administration is viewing the negotiation the nafta negotiations when nafta was first formulated it was seen as
8:59 am
a an attempt to integrate the three economies and the dutch the trumpet ministration is not seen in this way it's clear from these actions of creating this trade war that they're trying to see this as a zero sum game in which they're trying to get as much out of it as they can for their own you know particular interests and we're seen the results and it's an escalation of you know with the european union with mexico with canada of this trade war kind of phenomenon i think mexico can withstand a trade war with the united states obviously it will not be beneficial it's not in its best interest to do so but it could lead towards a diversification of its trade portfolio towards latin america towards brazil argentina china the european union and i'm sure the mexican. government has already signaled as much that they would likely do that the us
