11:38 am
. often or a good time. to stay and. change. yes in. a place where each generation mocks the passing of the one before. a place where tradition matters. like the national festival which brings everyone out to the streets to celebrate the long bright summer nots. as they have for generations the rowans who did battle at sea.

and the runners compete on the land. but take a look at the winner of the under seventeen it's hands alan thompson a sign that things are changing on the faroe islands. in this small confident country disagree. it's about allowing foreign is in a strikingly absent won't pull. down the road. in marrying a pharaoh island women from asia get more than a husband or a family they become part of a tribe. perhaps that is why they stay even if things go wrong. against the odds in the most unlikely destination they find a place in their hearts they call home.

11:41 am
a hundred in. the war it's possible the people in power are meets the women heading an eighteen man militia. and dispensing justice with an unforgiving hand. and eye for an army in iraq on al-jazeera. the nature of news as it breaks this is one of the areas where part this has had to block the roads using finding higher than anything else they could find with detailed coverage that appears extremely hard to sort through. they look at the state from around the world this museum aims to be a repository of our region's history and its perfected war that has divided the tribes here for generations.

but first breaking news out of nicaragua the reuters news agency is reporting that mediators from the roman catholic church have brokered an agreement between nicaragua's government and opposition forces both sides have proposed a great issue calls to end an end to end for over an end to hostilities there's a goal violence has left more than one hundred and sixty people dead since protests against the government of president daniel ortega began in april which is also calling for president take his government to consider early elections these talks are set to continue on saturday. a trade route between the world's two biggest economies china and the u.s. has escalated president donald trump says he will impose twenty five percent tariffs on fifty billion dollars worth of chinese imports then u.s. was being taken advantage of beijing promised to retaliate quickly with its own
11:44 am
tariff of twenty five percent on u.s. goods also worth fifty billion stars in july alan fischer reports from the white house. u.s. president donald trump has been hammering china on treat for months and a morning on the white house north lawn where he held the surprise news conference he confirmed he was going to act we need protection everybody take care of the european union made one hundred fifty one billion dollars you know where she would be if you look at the total you got china if you look at your job or you look at somebody and we help these countries militarily and over the years but what point does it stop you know the u.s. will impose tariffs an additional tax on goods imported from china the industries to be impacted agriculture or to undertake sector. the white house says it's not targeting foreigners t.v.'s and computers for no that would mean higher charges higher costs for consumers one trait expert says a u.s. trade battle with china the world's two biggest economies will impact global
11:45 am
markets it creates instability uncertainty it reduces particularly investment uncertainty for long term investors private business capital expenses and these types of things donald trump summit in singapore may have strengthened his determination to act for years the u.s. look to china to help bring in an industry in north korea but convinced he's built up a solid relationship with kim jong un the president perhaps feels he's in a stronger position to act on trade. industries targeted or lose tied to china's made in china twenty twenty five strategic plan to dominate the emerging high technology industries drive future economic growth but hunt for us and others china has warned when the first set of targets hit on july the sixth it will respond that will spark a second round of tartus from the us to move on the leach out treat each time it is consistent in its stance that if the us adopts any unilateral protectionist
11:46 am
measures and damages china's interests we will immediately react and take necessary measures to firmly safeguard our legitimate rights and interests there are those in this town and those in this white house who privately believe that a long term trade war with china would be bad for the u.s. economy and for u.s. consumers but donald trump is the living on a campaign promise and he believes a trade war would be good for the u.s. and it's a war he can when alan fischer al-jazeera at the white house has larry has more now from beijing. i think the chinese of fear is they are absolutely furious at what's hit them and they are hitting back to hitting back hard we heard the chinese comments ministry issued a statement shortly after trump made his announcement and they said they respond with taxation measures of the same measure of the same scale and then they've released a list of products of u.s. products that are going to be affected by these chinese tires and this list is an
11:47 am
expanded list from initial initial one hundred and six products in april to none six hundred fifty nine types of goods and this first list its first tranche of tires they will come into effect just like the u.s. tariffs on the sixth of july and this will hit u.s. farmers because these tariffs will hit farm products including soybean pork chicken seafood as well as automobile manufacturers and then there's a second tranche that's going to be on sixteen billion dollars worth of u.s. goods and just like the u.s. tariffs they will come into effect on a date to be announced later but the products the list of goods affected include medical devices energy crude oil and chemicals roberts courses from economic policy institute he says an exchange in types is likely to hurt china's economy more than the united states. this is something that trump campaigned on he promised that he was going to get tough on china in particular during his election campaign and he has been moving forward in fits and starts it's not entirely
11:48 am
a coherent program but he is certainly taking strong action and that was sorely needed i think it's going to be disruption but i don't think it's going to have an enormous impact for example the tariffs on fifty billion dollars with the goods that trump announced amount to an infinitesimally small share of the economy about six one hundred to one percent of g.d.p. if you add it all up and in fact a federal reserve chairman powell said yesterday that there is no evidence to date and all that the trip the tariffs announced today have had any impact impact on the economic numbers that he's saying so this is going to be really small change in the overall scope of the economy for the united states or china it could be a much bigger impact as president is trying to.
