the world's population and make up about twenty percent of the world's g.d.p. so in terms of the economy and trade it's not a real heavyweight but it's not a lightweight either when it comes to the international arena because this is a grouping led by china and russia so it should come as no surprise that they've used this summit as a platform to push the idea of an alternative international order now and chinese president xi jinping alluded as much when he mentioned american had to many still existing but then said there were growing calls for a more just and equitable international order and what else have we heard coming out from the summit we've heard iranian president hassan rouhani whose country is not a member state but has observer status at the c.e.o. attacked the u.s. for what he said was unilateralism in pulling out of the iran nuclear deal and then we've also heard chinese president criticizing the u.s. for its policies on trade its protectionist policies on trade now many analysts
10:01 pm
regard the c.e.o. as a counterbalance as a counterweight to the existing groupings that are dominated by the u.s. and its allies and what we could see going forward in the years to come is perhaps the c.e.o. gaining importance and prominence in the international world order the u.s. president's arrival in singapore is being overshadowed by his early departure from the g. seven summit in canada after leaving early trump refused to support a g seven joint communique which found to come trade barriers francis warned that fits of anger cannot dictate international corporation john hendren reports from quebec city. the g. seven summit in canada began in crisis in ended in conflict u.s. president donald trump came late left early and ceded no ground is united states has been taken advantage of for decades and decades and we can't do that anymore i can gradually the leaders of other countries for so. crazily
10:02 pm
being able to make these trade deals that was so good for their country and so bad for the united states neither did the six other world leaders at the g. seven summit they were united in opposing trump's tariffs on steel and aluminum a move they say is likely to spark a trade war after the host of this summit canadian prime minister justin trudeau fired back i highlighted directly to the president that canadians did not take it lightly that the united states has moved forward with significant tariffs on our steel and aluminum industry particularly did not take lightly the fact that it's based on a national security reason that its kind of insulting but we also will not be pushed around. from air force one on his way to singapore to meet north korean leader kim jong sent off an angry tweet calling trudeau dishonest and weak all seven nations had papered over the trades bad signing an agreement the. free fair
10:03 pm
and mutually beneficial trade without defining it that agreement is now moot in another tweet from air force one revoked his signature saying quote based on justin's false statements at his news conference and the fact that canada is charging massive tariffs to our u.s. farmers workers and companies i have instructed our reps not to endorse the communique trudeau's office tweeted back quote the prime minister said nothing he hasn't said before both in public and in private conversations with the president. this picture captures the global tension and that was before the twitter war this year's g seventy is already going down is the g six plus one six members on one side and president trump on the other is a summit six of the members hoped would end by escalating a budding trade war that instead has ended up accelerating but it was trudeau who had the support of his fellow g. seven members where we disagree with allies on something it is right that we say so
10:04 pm
and and the issue openly and frankly we have done just that at this summit registry of deep disappointment at the unjustified decision by the u.s. to apply terrorists to e.u. steel and on the medium imports as the g seven leaders returned home they leave more divided than ever john hendren al-jazeera quebec city canada. is an economist and head of the china economic policy research program at nottingham university he says that trumps increasing isolation from his allies is an opportunity for china's president xi jinping. i think the message is is clear just at the same time as we had the what they call it the failure of the g seven meeting in canada at the same time asia ease of playing a very important role of not just this weekend there but just sending the big signal that the big changes the big decisions are being made here not just the
10:05 pm
within this not hype of racial meeting but also the meeting with north korea while the waste that the g. seven that by the way does not include neither china nor russia is kind of straddling not just with the rest of the world of this start to struggle with each other agenda and so in a way just like we have seen in the last couple of years of this is a further if i may use the word triumph of force eugene being to be the people to all player in the region first of all sort of rising to a more important role within that within the world and so this is a very important and we have very positive it with asians also for the meeting in singapore. here with the news hour from al-jazeera still to come on the program emergency workers say there's now little hope of finding survivors in guatemala as the volcano there spews more mold some mud and plus. i'm andrew thomas in southeastern australia where the outbreak at the state government is using
10:06 pm
taxpayers' money to prop up the timber industry they say around here destroyed not just forests but the wildlife that relies on them. and sebastian vettel will stop the canadian grand prix in pole position but there's a name that surprisingly missing from the front of the grid the details later in sports. leaders from saudi arabia the united arab emirates and q eight a meeting in the saudi city of mecca to discuss possible help for jordan's struggling economy the european union's top foreign policy official traveled to jordan on saturdays and meet with king abdullah federica assured jordan of continued financial support saying that the e.u. would continue to invest in a key ally in the most heated and difficult area of the world with cash strapped jordan is struggling to get on top of its debt after taking a seven hundred twenty three million dollar loan from the international monetary
10:07 pm
fund and twenty sixteen it relies heavily on foreign aid but saudi arabia along with fellow gulf cooperation council members have not yet renewed their three point six billion dollar assistance program to jordan which expired last year and analysts say that saudi and amorality investors have stopped financing projects in jordan the government also blames its financial woes on instability in the region chiefly the war in neighboring syria which has stifled trade and pushed up prices and bears the burden of hosting some six hundred fifty thousand syrian refugees jordan's complained about not getting enough international support joining us now live. from is somebody who suppressor of international studies at the university of jordan good to have you with us why is it that the gulf nations have not renewed this financial assistance program to jordan.
10:08 pm
you know well this is confusing for damien's and we expected that no one would let jordan down but unfortunately over the last two years jordan has received no funds from from the gulf states and probably they have their own problem there bogged down in in regional conflicts cetera but. actually you know it's better to arrive late than never i mean at least they're coming back now to jordan suggesting to help jordan to get jordan out of its economic crisis and this is a statement about this in tragedy of jordan for regional stability i'm surprised the what i was trying to get out with that question is given jordan's geographical position as a buffer it's surprising that the patients haven't put it further up the list of priorities
10:09 pm
yeah that's what i'm saying that this is very surprising i mean over the years jordan has been helping the gulf states in. propping up their security they helped them in different files but also in the regional security do then is very important ally for the gulf to state but over the last few years you know the gulf states have their own perception their own perception of a threat they differ with jordan over some files and that's probably explains why they did not help jordan when jordan was in badly need for how to what extent to jordan's king have any bargaining power with the that the gulf states. i do believe so i mean he's is achieved a victory actually in jordan when he identified with his own people and picked the prime minister of jordan the outgoing one and the government jordan is badly need for our some economic help and and jordan's central lety in the region is widely
10:10 pm
acknowledged. so he's now in saudi arabia to meet. i mean the gulf leader there and i think he's he's going to talk to them from a position with strength do that could not be laid down again because if jordan descent into mayhem or an arche for god forbid begin to suffer so this is the message so it's not about we just need money from unfun from the gulf estate it's about the need to empower jordanians to be in a position to also to stand up to a new regional scheme that schemes that do not actually fit into the perception of regional security but politically jordan and saudi arabia don't exactly see eye to eye do that a lot of differences between them all absolutely i mean there are the first one hour the first file is the arab israeli conflict or the ultimate deal of this
10:11 pm
a lot of problems of differences between jordan and saudi arabia and secondly the position when it's come visit really the muslim brotherhood jordan is very amicable to. deal with them in a very positive constructive way why the saudis. declare that they are terrorist groups oh and also the war in yemen and jordan is now a part of it so there's a lot of probably anger on the part of the saudi but this is you know this pale when it compared to what's going to happen to them if jordan god forbid get into an anarchy and insecurity there so this is the message the message to the saudis to the gulf is that you know helping jordan is in their best interest professor good to talk to you but he sixty for being with us. at least fourteen people have been killed in government airstrikes on a village in the rebel held syrian province of idlib the northern province of idlib is meant to be one of the so-called deescalation and its activists say the truce
