the u.s. has evacuated two more employees from its consulate in the chinese city of gong show they appear to have the same symptoms as they're called who sustained a brain injury more than two weeks ago the u.s. secretary of state my pump a zero says it was a result of a sonic attack similar to last year's cases in cuba florence louis has more from beijing. this could turn out to be more serious than previously thought a u.s. medical team is currently in the southern city of congo conducting medical screenings on u.s. government workers now those u.s. diplomats and their families who've already been sent home from china complained about the same symptoms suffered by their colleagues in cuba including hearing loss north sea and headaches those same diplomats and their families in cuba were later diagnosed with minus signs of brain injury including concussions and china has yet to comment on the latest cases but it had said and this is in relation to the first
case offered by the u.s. a u.s. diplomat last month has already been sent home that it had no explanation for the case now these illnesses come at a time when ties between the u.s. and china are becoming increasingly strained for a number of reasons one is trade the u.s. and china are in the midst of trade talks to avert a possible trade war where both are threatening to slap tit for tat tariffs on about one hundred fifty billion dollars worth of goods each and then those job paula takes with the u.s. recently uninvited china from taking part in a naval exercise in the south china sea citing china's militarization of parts of the disputed south china sea and finally you have the upcoming summit in singapore where u.s. president donald trump is due to meet north korean leader kim jong il in just a couple of days the two are going to talk about nuclear disarmament of north korea and the success of those talks in part will depend on cooperation from china
a very close ally off with clear leaders from the g seven countries are heading to for a meeting which could be difficult for u.s. president donald trump his decisions to unilaterally withdraw from the iran nuclear deal and impose tariffs on e.u. countries canada and others are causing a deep breath in the group john hendren reports from quebec city. the gathering of world leaders was supposed to be is celebration but instead of highlighting the global economic expansion the talk at this year's g seven summit is all about averting a trade war. the great disruptor donald trump and his america first agenda levying tariffs of twenty five percent on steel and ten percent on aluminum coming from allies in canada mexico and europe the trouble ministration has managed to alienate systematically almost all of the allies who would be involved in this so canada mexico the european union or new additions it's going to be
a tense meeting i would imagine canada's prime minister displayed a diplomatic anger and announced retaliatory sanctions somehow this is insulting to them the idea that the canadian steel that's in military military vehicles in the united states the canadian aluminum that makes here at your fighter jets is somehow now a threat the idea that we are somehow a national security threat to the united states is quite frankly insulting and unacceptable. europe's leaders are also irate and threatening sanctions on a litany of iconic american products from levi's jeans to kentucky bourbon to harley davidson motorcycles. all made in the republican states trump needs to keep his party in control of congress in this year's midterm elections instead of celebrating their usual unity diplomats from seven of the world's largest economies are scrambling for common ground there was consensus under trump's predecessor barack obama on iran and climate change now there's
a budding trade war that threatens to turn allies into adversary but some analysts expect a last minute agreement to avert an escalating trade conflict it's mostly done for posturing and because trump sees this as part of his base is particular the swing voters in midwestern states that got him elected and he wants to show or pretend that he's doing something but again i don't think these tariffs will stick with it a family photo of world leaders that traditionally ends the meeting depicts an awkward alliance with the usual show of unity is largely up to the man from washington john hendren al jazeera quebec city still ahead on al-jazeera in greece protesters rally against a neighboring countries name and i'll tell you why the war in syria is creating tension between russia and iran.
welcome back but also quite hot weather contend with around parts of the fans and at least at the moment as a look at some parts of asia still some showers affecting parts of kazakhstan and. otherwise we're looking at the isolated shower activity around the caspian sea chima should be fine for tara is looking hot this. thirty five temperature forty four in baghdad and fine weather conditions around the eastern side of the mediterranean generally and that's going to continue as we head on through into friday so moving into the arabian peninsula it is hot here this time of year should expect but really for some places hotter than it should be though have a temperature of forty four is probably fair enough to get the breeze pick up during the afternoon but little bit further inland the light sea temperatures high is forty five forty six and in fact temperatures getting a little bit higher as we get into the weekend so forty five is that if you like
the minimum temperature in qatar elsewhere pretty hot there for rio two forty five a look at forty six for medina down into southern portions of africa the weather here looking largely dry and fine but again much as you'd expect or the resists circulation just as south america ask and i think will be showers generated across the southern portion of the island for much of south africa weather conditions looking pretty good at the moment not particularly warm the highs of eighteen expected in cape town. it would remove any benefits of barack and. that is if you come to be a people dispossessed a state established whatever i was able to do in palestine respect brave the great international peace organization the united nations a momentous event which lies at the heart of ongoing conflict to this day seventy
years on al-jazeera tells the history of what palestinians call the catastrophe. hello again the top stories on al-jazeera iraq's parliament has ordered a manual recount of every vote cast in last month's parliamentary elections after accusations of widespread fraud and it comes a day after prime minister had to lie about he said there had been serious violations and banned high ranking election commission officials from leaving the country business owners in nicaragua as capital are calling for a national strike to pressure the government to end its violent crackdown on protesters nearly one hundred thirty people have been killed since demonstrations
began in april homes are still being evacuated in guatemala as mount flingo volcano continues to erupt at least ninety nine people have been killed and hundreds of gone missing since sunday as a russian. tens of thousands of people have rallied in cities across northern greece they're protesting against a possible compromise in the country's long running main disputes with macedonia johnson ruffle us reports from one of the main demonstrations in pella. to the people of northern greece macedonia and the renault. is their second national anthem the folk song celebrates an identity they cherish as much as greek innocent self it's not just ancient history they're proud of their great grandparents fought to wrest this land from the ottoman empire these high schoolers have heard the family stories of sacrifice and bloodshed they feel it's their duty to fight to keep the name macedonia exclusively greek the greeks feel they are defending
themselves from a peculiar crime the first of a component of their nation hood. we cannot give away our property our historical pride of being greeks and macedonians certain people cannot take what doesn't belong to them i mean. i think sharing this name will be the biggest forgery in history mastodon is this where we stand this don't say that history says it. the archaeological record leaves no doubt here in pella buried beneath cotton fields lies the four hundred hectare ancient macedonian capital it is from here that alexander the great set out to conquer asia and a few miles to the south archaeologists have found the royal tombs of the ancient macedonian dynasty. such fines do not exist outside greece but the talks between athens and scope designed to share macedonian identity the country that has called itself republic of macedonia since the second world war would retain that name with
a qualifier such as northern or. opinion polls suggest three quarters of greeks are against that unless the name is in the native slavic tongue of the yugoslav macedonians greece has reasons to compromise its economy is in tatters after eight years of recession it needs trading partners and former yugoslav macedonia wants to enter the european union and nato cultivating good relations now could give greece a better position in those organizations and then there is greece's real worry the increasingly tense relationship with turkey. as the country emerges from its economic crisis it shapes an area in which it can act and with which it can grow this is because it frees up strength to deal with the real geopolitical geostrategic problem that these are not former yugoslav macedonia or albania they come from the east for these greek macedonians however history and identity matter above all else jumps at all costs al-jazeera telling. spain's prime minister has

army control and that iranian military advisers are not present in the area. received a strong message from israel with the stepped up air strikes that it won't tolerate iranian presence in south syria that's why iran withdraw from solving syria the iranians know that engaging in a war with israel in syria is not its benefits and it's not to russia's benefit either an iranian israeli confrontation with threaten the assad government's hold on power and moscow's achievements it has been a difficult balancing act for russia which enjoys good relations with iran and israel israel doesn't just want iranian and iranian backed troops away from its borders it wants them out of syria altogether israel sees them as a strategic threat and wants russia to ensure that their military influence doesn't grow it's not just israel's demand other regional international powers want to
