8:22 pm
of the program i'm at the top of mix messaging from russia and china appears to be drawing ever closer in an alliance there at the forefront of the two day shanghai cooperation organization eight countries seeking to expand economic and strategic links with some of their neighbors where president vladimir putin's already announced new trade and investment agreements with his chinese counterpart xi jinping is calling the russian leader his best friend reports from beijing. a friendship medal for russian president vladimir putin awarded for what china says is putin's outstanding contribution to china's development. it's a sign of ever closer ties between the two men and the two countries both announced several business deals including a joint investment fund in projects in china and russia the closer relationship
8:23 pm
comes at a time when tensions with the u.s. have increased both the russians and chinese have been sidelined from tuesday's planned summit between trump and kim jong il despite that both are keen to show they retain influence over north korea. and i see. we talked about the korean peninsula issue russia and china both want to see the korean peninsula and north east asia enjoy the peace we are happy to see that the current negotiation process between the d.p. r. k. and the u.s. is in the framework of the roadmap initiated by russia and china in recent communications pyongyang confirmed to us it will carry out constructive corporation in the denuclearization. a close ally its benefits both russia and china russia is accused of meddling in trump's election and faces sanctions for annexing crimea. chinese and american negotiators are trying to avoid a trade war and china has been criticized and challenged by the u.s.

8:25 pm
from the s.c. and the shanghai organizations being seen as a platform for india and pakistan to engage with each other over their disputes including kashmir china's massive belton road construction project is also up for discussion the trade plan spans more than sixty countries in asia the middle east you have and africa boss india refuses to be a part of it well let's bring in our guests now from singapore by skype is graham on the web a research fellow at the s. rajaratnam school of international studies from beijing china tangan a china political analyst who advises the chinese government on economic and development issues and from new delhi by skype is job and jacob associate editor of china report very warm welcome to all of you mr tag and let me start with you there are a lot of important issues many of which are also being discussed at the g. seven summit in canada where there is a lot of discord because of u.s. president donald trump's trade policies how is that disunity being viewed in china
8:26 pm
. well quite frankly it's not just china it's around the world i mean you have a tale of two summits one is full of strife and discord strife between the members and twitter tirades and then also issues about trade on the other side you seem to have a very well organized well oiled gathering in china headed by china but part of this as c.e.o. grouping and for the first time pakistan and india there and it's going to be a very interesting event mr webb what do you all thought say you as optimistic as mr tang and could this be a basis for an alternative to the traditional willed order that's represented by the seven countries meeting in canada do you think. well perhaps that remains to be seen i still think that the shanghai cooperation organization still has
8:27 pm
a lot of things to work out taking into account the relationships within the organization between countries in particular china and india have only been able to forge closer ties of late has or hasn't always been the case the story of any seventeen between china and india was quite different until we saw the meetings between prime minister narendra modi and president presidency changing the course of this year only of late and me india and pakistan also have outstanding issues with each other not least because of kashmir but also because of other issues as well that are outstanding the china pakistan economic record of for example is something that is a flaw on india's side and saw where as well as you it does have a lot of promise perhaps in some sort of alternative mechanism one could argue the same time this is still an organization that has it's all in attentions and you know and issues that have to be worked out in order for it to go in some sort of cohesive direction and make
8:28 pm
a contribution to regional order and little bit talking about all of the issues that you raised in more detail in the program that message take of what do you think of the sort of emerging proximity that fragged developing between these countries china russia and india is it a good start to work on some of the world's major issues right now and not just the ones between those countries. well russia and the leaders of the chinese media you know all well what they get now. and this they just should not be india and pakistan to be a c.e.o. well yes you know looks good right now in comparison to the seven right now because all trump is going on just that. but on the issue of those nights but all that he represents the commonality of values is much easier it is much more broader vision than the us you know and you mentioned i think that
8:29 pm
it's about challenges that yes you know and to use the base being of those that we're not looking at the c.e.o. or or you know pakistan who thought that he had i think wants to meet scholars talk about that but eleven if you want to get you shouldn't this. it's all this is not you know the indians are getting c.d.'s you know if you or other leaders organizations. you know you go into it. so perhaps there won't be much progress on the issue between india and pakistan but what about china's quaked one belt one road project that india has been opposed to because of one of the one of the elements of the project is going through disputed the china pakistan economic corridor or do you think that we can expect any progress mr jacob on that
8:30 pm
issue because this is such a key. plan for china so i think the position. the government position is that this. well i think that it is up and so the opposition is still very strong but. you know they'll be a. part of the seals agenda. and i mean there's no running away from it. and the iraqis will have to find a way to deal with it and if you look at the record last year or even as late as early this year in europe will simply not sign on to anything that. what are you know all the forums you know it was an opportunity for conversations on the say. maybe. we. used to call it you know right some sort of project or it
8:31 pm
measures big eventually people from the it's ok so the way of knowing you know. going to get back to started or other nations as well right so we will wait to see how much progress they can make on china's one belt one road project when india might not necessarily agree to some parts of that plan one things to tang and let me bring you in now one issue that these countries do seem to agree on is iran and the iran nuclear deal and not imposing sanctions against the country this is going to be iranian president hassan rouhani as that is his first foreign trip since the u.s. pulled out of that iran nuclear deal do you think that we can expect these countries not just china india and russia which make up you know three of the world's biggest economies three in the top ten but also the other central asian
8:32 pm
countries can we expect them to continue to do business with iran. absolutely i don't think they'll be any change i think russia china and india are all in favor of this as are the majority of the g. seven i think it's a really a six six versus one right now but you know i want to go back and touch upon a point that was made about the belton road initiative in order for india to come into its own it needs jobs and infrastructure and i think modi and she are putting together and realizing that they can work together and be far more powerful the fact is that they control forty five forty percent of the world's population and are the fastest growing a couple large economies in the world and together they could change the way that everything is done today previously we've always looked towards capital to make the
8:33 pm
rules but when the capital sixty percent of which is in europe and the united states has to make investments it has to choose places where the money can grow and that right now is india and china and i think you're going to see them cooperating out of mutual interests that does not mean that india will abandon its strategic security relationship and chips with the united states but it does mean that they're going to make their own path as they go through this so you are much more positive than about the india china relationship going forward and also a positive that all of these countries will continue to do business with iran and instant. web what do you think these countries going to risk facing us sanctions to do business with iran. also doing this is a very interesting issue it remains to be seen what what the issue on iran's membership is going to be. as your country's boat.
