5:02 pm
terence and step up our efforts to project the ability beyond our borders and fight terrorism fair burden sharing underpins everything that we do just a few years ago we were cutting our defense budgets now we are adding billions spending more and spending better. now could you look at it germany is a captive for a ship because they supply they get rid of their coal to get rid of this nuclear they getting so much of the oil and gas from russia i think it's something that they are asked to look at i think it's very appropriate for you and i think we did it appropriate i don't know what you can do about it but it certainly doesn't seem to make sense that they pay billions of dollars to russia and now we have to defend them against russia. no maintenance the non-so trying to mine nations around the there are some parts differences son needed them to do so and also some disagreements on the guy it's a. problem for for the german small issues
5:03 pm
a lot of these three but the span fullname two is the respond to these differences will always be able to unite the promo for polls good to protect on the phone to tell the people from the sound of your story would you give them a call. to go to world war from the cold war focus on your story together or. how are you going to get what a country is getting its energy from the person you want protection against or simply because from the start of the when we stand together also when dealing with bush wrong we are stronger i think will become seniors no you just make you richer richer well that deliberately making virtue richer with a good deal of even the cold war made dollars for trading when the rush of the the in this room and so both went on the trade agreements we've through the i think terry is wonderful i think energy is a whole different story this energy is
5:04 pm
a much different story than normal trade and you have a country like poland the four except as you take a look at some of the countries there were said that because they don't want to be captive to russia by germany as far as i'm concerned it's captive to russia because it's getting so much energy for right so listen for subjects germany getting their energy. for her she explained that to me every. right to you grows. a lot diplomatic editor james bays is watching all of this unfold in brussels and trump and merkel have just had their bilateral meeting on the sidelines james. yes so after that extraordinary attack on germany and chancellor merkel by the u.s. president about breakfast with the u.n. secretary general now the two leaders who seem to be no avoiding each other until now today in fact we've seen them a number of different photo opportunities we saw the so-called family photo where
5:05 pm
all the twenty nine leaders stand together it looked more like a family feud the mood very very tense indeed well after that and the first meeting formal meeting of the north atlantic council that's all twenty nine meeting leaders meeting there was this meeting between president chancellor merkel now at the start of the meeting the white house told reporters there will be no photos no t.v. crews will be allowed in the meeting well what's the meeting got started and they relented and they allowed journalists in they allowed a small group of journalists and camera crews in to see the sea and it's clear although they were still raising some of the same issues that they were not being raised by president trump in the same angry way that he raised them a few hours ago not clear why possibly the beginning of this meeting in this is just speculation by me it was an agreement to try and bring the tension down some
5:06 pm
sort of truce but even if that is the case i think the damage has been done here. i'm reading james that america has said that she looks forward to future exchanges would trump because we're partners and donald trump has said that he expects trade to increase with germany so how much damage would you say has been done by that priest breakfast with again stoltenberg and can these allies overcome what what trump has brought to the summit. well i think there's certainly been damage done to the relationship between the u.s. and germany we know the personal relationship between the chancellor and the u.s. president is not good what about the damage that has been done to the nato alliance at one point president trump said we're supposed to protect germany and yet they are buying this gas from russia well it's not supposed to protect germany there is
5:07 pm
a north atlantic treaty that was signed almost seventy years ago actually in washington d.c. article five of that says an attack on any of the nato allies is an attack on all of that treaty they are all required to protect one another article has only been invoked one time after nine eleven but the basic underpinnings of nato in this alliance or in some ways being challenged and so you know is nato itself and the alliance at risk change because of what trump is saying can they survive this u.s. president. well certainly there is a lot of talk from others and particularly from the secretary general about the unity of nato and how that they have a job to do and they're going to continue doing it but certainly nato has continued through the cold war that was created for through the end of the cold war and its
5:08 pm
expansion because i think in many parts because of the determination of one country the united states is that determination still there james thank you very much for that is our diplomatic editor james bays who will be on throwing or trying to all those questions for us from the nato summit in brussels. but let's move on to other news now in the first pictures of the rescue thai schoolboys have emerged since they were brought out of the cave well this is them recovering in an isolation ward of the hospital. doctors say the boys and their coaches about two kilograms otherwise in pretty good health the young football team spent seventeen days trapped underground in the chiang rai and sent us this update. at the press conference today by government express get gratitude not just to those who worked from within its own government but also volunteers who came from other
5:09 pm
countries and brought in their expertise this is quite unprecedented not only because thailand had worked with other countries before but also because it didn't matter what the issues these countries have with thailand it didn't matter that some countries the border issues to thailand what mattered was that the collaborated and turned this very difficult operation into a successful one now most of the boys almost all of the boys are doing very well they are expected to stay in hospital for about seven days before they are brought home and they have to stay at home for about thirty days it is something critical because there is still under medical observation although almost all of them basically are doing very well according to doctors both physically and mentally and it's also what makes this story special is that according to experts the story of the boys really is in keeping with the world cup fever at the moment you know whatever happened under those conditions they exhibited strength unity and
5:10 pm
brotherhood really the kind of values that the world cup espouses. so it's hard bombing and a gun battle in the east of the amazon has killed at least ten people. with three of the attackers grew themselves off of the education department offices in jalalabad. to confront the attackers before the battle ended in the capital of province groups claiming responsibility but both and the taliban have carried out previous raids. the u.s. secretary of state has called for. states to end the blockade against cutter during a visit to the united arab emirates my pompei are held talks with crown prince mohammed bin zeid in the capital abu dhabi. urged an end to the diplomatic spat saying it would lead to the strengthening of iran in the region the u.a.e. saudi arabia bahrain and egypt imposed a blockade on in june last year. libyan warlord khalifa haftar has agreed to return
5:11 pm
to control of major oil ports to the internationally recognized government following appeals by regional powers as well as the us france italy and britain have to us forces regained control of export terminals last month after battles with a rival group the fighting in the so-called or oil crescent prevented tankers from docking and cost the oil dependent economy nearly a billion dollars without the head as in tripoli. after three weeks of blockade finally warlord hefted has responded to the international pressure by international players and he has decided to hand over the oil terminals in the east of the country to the internationally recognized the tripoli based national oil corporation now according to the n.o.c. the national oil corporation their oil exporting operations are going to be resumed in the oil terminals after three weeks of blockade we understand that the meeting
5:12 pm
that was held in room on tuesday was held by the united states representatives and also representatives from italy the u.k. and france and that pressure was put on the eastern rivals especially. for hefted and the presidency of the tobruk based parliament and that message according to informant sources was meant to isolate the oil sector away from any conflict in the east of the country according to the national oil corporation there too to loss of the three weeks of blockade by hefted forces has cost the libyan budget around one billion dollars since the beginning of the conflict on the fourteenth of last june now the end of the conflict of the hand over of the oil terminals to the national oil corporation does not mean the end of the conflict in
5:13 pm
the east of the country we understand that have had plans to hand over the oil terminals to their parallel corporation to the rival and to see the evil oil corporation which is a lie to the top of the best government now we understand that the. handover of the oil terminals to the. national oil corporation does not mean the end of the conflict as have that its forces are still based in the. trying to put themselves as the guardian of the oil terminals. to haiti and underway in the capital often days of protest against fuel price rises despite plans to shelve the hikes demands the president to continue. reporting from the capital port au prince. a buzz of activity at first glance it appears like just another regular day in haiti's capital city. but don't be fooled this is
5:14 pm
a country again dealing with a political and economic crisis port au prince has in recent days but the scene of large scale protests thousands took to the streets at one point officials temporarily close to the capital's international airport fearing the crowds the anger was directed at the government police used tear gas to disperse people apparently threatening to overrun the presidential palace several people were killed during the melee. the unrest was sparked by the government's decision to increase fuel prices by up to fifty percent the increases cover gasoline diesel and kerosene sales however it's kerosene which stands apart from the others being the cheap fuel of choice for the millions of poor haitians to power their stoves and generators people of this economically of the country most of whom make less than a couple dollars a day are furious at what they view as an inept and corrupt government the fuel
5:15 pm
hike was the last straw. we are taking to the streets because the president is keeping the people hostage everything is overpriced unemployment is high and people are hungry to free haiti from all of that that is if the president doesn't step down we'll continue protesting we've given lawmakers an ultimatum either they force him from office or we will burn the parliament down to the ground. the government says the gasoline rate increase was needed and it would have brought in tens of millions of dollars to fund much needed infrastructure projects throughout the country but faced with a backlash the government backed down and halted the rate increase at least for now but this is still a country in deep political crisis people here saying they'll go back on the streets to protest until there's a change in government georges lucien is a historian and political analyst who says these protests are different from the ones in the past because now the anger is focused not only on the political leaders
5:16 pm
but also at the business leaders as well. these policies not only affect the poor but also the middle class until the government starts working to improve people's lives there's no guarantee the recent unrest won't return so far all the government policies are pushing people out of their lands they are building sweatshops in other industries for imports but ignoring local production. a proposed fuel price hike that is now to fuel inflaming the end of a long suffering people and joining us live from. more protests call for today. that's right the opposition has called for more protests today as well as later in the week as well those protests have not kicked off yet here in port au prince yet but we'll be watching them very closely to see if they have the same intensity that they had over the weekend those weekend protests were some of the most intense and
5:17 pm
in some ways a violent that we've seen here in haiti for many years meanwhile the government is reeling and the government is in deep crisis right now president job and he would always has been meeting with his emergency cabinet he's been meeting with representatives from the united nations canada france and other countries these are all countries that are big donors to haiti as well as meeting with the haitian business community as well trying to get a grip on how to come to some sort of peaceful agreement here on how to get past this crisis as we all know that this. gas rate increase was temporarily suspended by the government but clearly there's still a lot of anger on the streets and will this government the opportunity to calm this crisis because protest is a continuing the call will strike a change of government any sign that could happen. short answer is yes the parliament will be having an emergency meeting on saturday
5:18 pm
where they will be voting no confidence on the prime minister jacques. the prime minister as this no confidence vote will be happening we're told on saturday. there's one hundred seventeen members of parliament sixty vote for no confidence that would mean the prime minister would have to step down but does that mean it would be the end of this crisis probably not because protesters on the streets also say they want the president as well to potentially step down so far there is no signs that he will do that so this is a crisis as we found out it could be going on for a very long time and thank you very much for that so now let's gave you. prince thank you and still ahead on the bulletin china retaliates over the latest u.s. tariffs and the escalating trade dispute and why zimbabwe's main opposition opposition party is threatening to derail the first presidential election since one
