a meeting between the russian leader vladimir putin and donald trump has been called off after sunday's naval confrontation between russia and ukraine in the black sea it's led to pressure on the u.s. and e.u. to consider new sanctions against moscow we begin our coverage with this report from here is a row reporting from a site raise. the mothers of last of emmanuel have been demanding to know the whereabouts of their missing children since they disappeared during argentina's dictatorship forty years ago. the g twenty gives them a chance to take their message to a wider audience and. the city is under siege it seems like we're under curfew but we made it here and once again we call on world leaders to stop the policies that create hunger poverty and that hurt the working class. they were into low thousands of people are promising to take over the streets of one of the site is on friday in spite of these protests this is
2:03 pm
a historic event for argentina and an opportunity to be at the center of world affairs even though there are several issues overshadowing the main objective which is to build consensus on crucial issues like climate change and inequality. among them the presence of saudi crown prince mohammed bin salomon and the request by human rights watch to investigate him over the murder of journalism i casually. skilling has changed relations between saudi and the western world. in one way mark owen says he's ready to talk to the crown prince about what happened should usually take a sure i have always been very clear in the case of saudi arabia and i will inevitably have the opportunity to discuss it with the saudi crown prince on the margins of this g. twenty meeting we will have the opportunity to discuss it among european leaders as i requested before the g. seven donald trump arrived in when a site is on thursday evening ready to discuss the trade war between the united
2:04 pm
states and china he's cancelled he's meeting with russian president vladimir putin after the seizure of crane and ships by russia at the crimean peninsula. these protesters came all the way from the united states carrying a baby trump. he's been an activist opposing the u.s. foreign policy since the vietnam war we would like the president of the united states that are a little bit more mature that's if i was going to boil it down to just one statement it would be that we think it's asinine that he's on twitter we think it's asinine that he's casual and that he. picks fights seems to want to take the smallest and lowest road instead of the high the g twenty begins proper on friday this mass yoga session was organized to help leaders concentrate on we solving their differences. the protest around when a site is will remind them how hard that task is likely to be. as.
2:05 pm
well the u.n. secretary general antonio terrace is also and what osiris here is alan fischer for the moranbah it's. the organizers of the g twenty and global leaders are also hoping that crucial issues will be discussed things like global warming things like the global economy there are some experts who say we could well be heading for another recession not quite as bad as two thousand and eight but something that would cause untold misery for many people around the globe well the u.n. secretary general is in argentina he had a news conference earlier on thursday and i asked him how he can get everyone pointing in the same direction and trying to bring global solutions to global problems live. stock that they're seeing the central problems of all of that. just because. there's of course you see just as the woman you are until you get here is understands where the fault lines are and i asked him you
2:06 pm
know what the problems are how do you get everyone pointing in the same direction and coming up with a solution he said i don't know you tell me i pointed out i wasn't the u.n. secretary general but that perhaps shows his frustration that the twenty biggest economies are involved in individual rows rather than looking at the big picture and walking towards solutions there they're hoping at the end of the g. twenty there will be an official communique it would be unusual if there wasn't but given the divisions given the problems it's by no means guaranteed if they were able to get a statement which discusses what has been achieved and where they need to go that that would be progress well as prime minister justin trudeau arrived in argentina for the g twenty canada announced that it's imposing sanctions on seventeen saudi nationals who it believes had a role in the murder of journalist. here's the canadian foreign minister chrystia freeland. to murder him to the shoji is
2:07 pm
a point and represents an unconscionable attack on freedom of expression and freedom of the press he continued to call for a credible and independent international investigation. this case is known policed those responsible for mr bush ots death must be held to account and must face justice kennedy halakhah joining us from speaking off. this is a big diplomatic task for the saudi arabian a crown prince some even saying it's a question of his legitimacy on the international stage. there's no question that the saudi crown prince and his attendance here at the g. twenty summit is an attempt to put the murder of behind him certainly this is going to be a focus for many of the g twenty leaders that are present here but at the same time you have to put it into context when you come to
2:08 pm
a meeting like this the crown prince is and saudi arabia is the only nation where there are human rights concerns we've got china here russia so he's certainly in the crown prince is certainly in good company in terms of the allegations but of course the murder of his show she is in the spotlight at the moment but given the fact that the united states tends to be the leader in all of this and has given up till now so hush zero zero rather the saudi crown prince free pass with respect to that murder it's possible that many of the g twenty leaders will follow suit you know you have the u.s. secretary of defense james mattis saying when they looked at the intelligence there was no so-called smoking gun so in terms of how this moves forward well the argentinean prosecutor certainly is taking this case looking at the cases put forward by human rights watch but again given the fact that the wheels of justice often move very slowly it's likely that he will leave before anything takes effect
2:09 pm
and at the same time a lot of important events including a high stakes meeting between the u.s. and chinese presidents of course the dispute between them a big talking point can we expect any progress on that issue of the three not quite as between the u.s. and china here the helicopters above me but i'm going to continue talking about china that is certainly another big issue with the out coming meeting between u.s. president donald trump and the chinese leader xi jinping of course that escalating trade war is certainly on the forefront donald trump threatening more tariffs in january up to twenty five percent on to more than two hundred billion chinese goods that's what's at stake if an agreement can't be worked out one that the spokesman for the chinese foreign minister says he's hopeful can still be achieved. we hope the u.s. can show sincerity in the china happy way to promote
2:10 pm
a proposal that both countries can accept at the same time we also hope that the hard work of both sides of the argentina beating that will shortly take place between the leaders of china and the us can achieve positive results to set the direction for the next stage in the development of cheney u.s. ties. all right kimberly we'll leave it there with you for now for the time being kimberly reporting for us from a very loud. now as we mentioned donald trump has pointed to russia's actions against ukraine as his reason for counseling and meeting with president vladimir putin in one of sirees ukraine is not only calling on the international community to put pressure on moscow but it's also taking its own measures the latest banning russian men aged between sixteen and sixty from entering the country or a challenge is covering the story joining us now from moscow we'll talk about those measures in
2:11 pm
a moment rory but now we have reaction from the kremlin reacting to president trump this isn't a council meeting with between him and putin. yes basically the. kremlin were surprised by this decision late last night thursday evening when it broke they were basically following donald trump's twitter feed and seeing what was being reported bits that they hadn't received anything themselves from the white house well that changed on friday when we have an official statement from to be true peskov said that yes we regret the u.s. administration's decision to cancel this meeting in what i saw as it means that the discussion of serious international and bilateral issues is being delayed for uncertain period of time as for the russian president vladimir putin he is ready for holding contacts with his u.s. counterparts. just talking about retaliation is just
2:12 pm
terrifying because if anyone tries to retaliate to what's happening in kiev now it could lead to a crazy situation if we're talking about this on a national scale then quite simply it could lead to a meltdown. ok so there is a car over there was talking about the a ukrainian president's decision to ban russian males aged between sixteen and sixty from entering ukraine that is a big step from the ukrainian presidents in the ukrainian border service considering that there are hundreds if not thousands of families who are closely intertwined across the border russians with family in ukraine in ukraine with family members in russia there of ukrainians who work in russia and russians who work in ukraine so severing. of the the traffic across the border in
2:13 pm
one direction is a big step from petro poroshenko the russians of course in many circumstances have this principle of reciprocity if anybody in acts a policy that they see as anti russian and they will do something that is similar back so the big question was would the russians do that in return and as we've just heard from or is a car of a it seems i've they decided not to do that so i think the russians are trying to portray what's going on in ukraine at the moment as a kind of collective freakouts from the poroshenko administration and position moscow as the adult in the room all right thank you. well as you're hearing good kev has banned russian men aged between sixteen and sixty from entering the country it's the latest retaliatory measure as the crisis with moscow escalates ukraine's president petro poroshenko also wants nato to the point ships to the sea if as all of that's what russia has been blockading ports border regions
2:14 pm
in ukraine are now under martial law including the city of kharkiv under simmons reports from there. martial law review crane second city isn't very evident more police on the ground and extra vigilance but most of the emergency power is now available to the president of being held in reserve. so fear and counted sky is a journalist who was here outside the city's russian consulate when it was fire bombed on sunday night nationalists demonstrating against russia's action off the coast of alec's crimea she says later when president petro poroshenko warned that russia had tripled the number of tanks on the border people were startled some fearing an invasion. it's karma. rather than more local officials have assured people that nerves which will restrict their constitutional rights well are and they be brought into effect f. russia stats and open act of aggression such as an invasion people here in hockey
2:15 pm
that live in a strange state is there a full war or isn't there. paper boats remain outside the consulate passive resistance to the russian confrontation city officials won't comment and were understood to be seeking more clarification about the martial law or some politicians are still cynical about the president's motivations with their actions at the end of march next year the fact that a bill like the one about that a bill in the back of a twenty four team should have been done and everyone would have taken it normally it could have been an adequate response to the situation but now honestly it looks ridiculous. an estimated thirty percent of hockey these people are ethnic russian and the border is only forty kilometers away if the conflict was to escalate drastically kieve would certainly be in the firing line and this is the city that built thousands of teeth thirty four tanks its legendary armor believed by many to
2:16 pm
have been one of the main reasons why the soviets defeated the nazis in the second world war. now work to build and maintain ukrainian tanks is virtually nonstop with all exports halted. its won't necessarily what's how. on the ground it's what's going through people's minds construction for example is applies to young men between twenty and twenty seven years of age one year for graduates eighteen months from now on graduate special exemption for young people from serving on the front line but could this old change. a students depart from a day's study in a university and get a hint of their nervousness. the nation's fighting each other needs to be a peaceful solution without the loss of human life. boy. i will be in
2:17 pm
pain if my brothers conscripted because i don't want him to go to war to fight somebody at a strange time in its short history as an independent state the message from ukraine is one of strength and determination but there's divisiveness in its internal politics andrew symonds al-jazeera how keep you crying and in just a moment right here on. economy. hello again well this hour i do want to take you up here towards north asia we are seeing some better conditions right now across parts of japan but things are going to be deteriorating over the next few days and that the reason is we have this one system making its way out of northeastern china and eastern parts of russia that is

2:21 pm
unusual put there's no reporting coming across right now no russians of illusions because of this new now normally you would have. russian nationals coming through so also think who have joint ukrainian and russian citizenship that ukrainians are very worried that there could be a kickback from russia and they may do a tit for tat restriction on ukrainian nationals going into russia that would have a big effect on them in terms of the russian else they stood back and said no we will take an action in it basically in a fashion to try to ukrainians who need to work in russia so this is now a situation where when the ukrainians are being seen to be the technical warms although for a shrinker president poroshenko is insisting he does not want to see scenes like this
2:22 pm
and thirty fourteen after the uprising where and russian nationals were coming in to demonstrate in this area he has a thirty percent russian ethnic presence in the population there is no trouble these days but then there will not all demonstrations and lots of violence perpetrated according to you driving by russian nationals who was. as they said. fine the russian army using whole series of measures and the russian curser going to announce this move restricting. crossings of this border point he said point blank that we're shocked. long to build effectively reliable. people platoon to cause trouble in ukraine so this is basically a measure that's what it quite well look by parish and it's going to look like the
