that would really differentiate any war with iran compared to the war with iraq is that the war with iraq did not end up at the war stage spreading throughout the region the instability after the war of course spread throughout the region war with iran very likely will be a regional war it will not be one in which the united states will be able to decide where is the war theater on the contrary the strategy of the iranians likely will be to expand the war and make sure that the u.s. doesn't know exactly where else it would end up having to engage with iranian forces and that is a very very bad development for everyone else in the region obviously mindful of the fact that the very immediate way that will destabilize the entire region and as you said earlier on we don't seem to have a not a lot of exit ramps and that's because at the end the day nothing that john bolton is doing or trump is doing is actually moving us closer towards some sort of a diplomatic exit ramp and one is very much needed right now to pass a talking iran without thank you for your time to appreciate it here. here's what's
11:01 am
coming up on this news hour we're going to meet young south africans who wants to be voting in weapons these general election. i'm a clot reporting from leaving a photo island in arctic norway pollute space by one of the most important fisheries in the uk. and that's what we'll find out how chelsea secured its spot for next season's champions league. president stepping up pressure on china as well this is over the trade deal that he has announced tariff increases on chinese goods trump said tariffs on two hundred billion dollars worth of chinese products would rise to twenty five percent on friday u.s. markets didn't like it though the dow futures lost four hundred points on the news here is a jury in brown in beijing to talk through. this one exactly what does it mean for
11:02 am
china for the united states and just explain it for us in simple language if you would. yeah look i think we're going to get some indication of just how serious how significant president trump's latest tweet is if the vice premier of china lou who is leading the chinese negotiating team decides now not to go to washington for the resumption of these talks later this week now he's due to leave basically you know today but if he doesn't go then that's a clear sign that these negotiations are in serious trouble there have been ten rounds of negotiations now spread over ten months these talks had been expected to conclude sometime in april that didn't happen now so far we've had no official response from the chinese government to that tweet from president donald trump that though is going to come i'm sure later today what we have had though is reaction
11:03 am
from stock markets here in china the shans in and shanghai indexes are both down by more than two percent the index in hong kong also down significantly as well as japan so investors really are rattled by the prospect of perhaps united states and china not being able to resolve their trade differences after all remember it was back in december the president from been president xi jinping agreed to a truce in their trade war that of course and led to the stock markets beginning their recovery now all of that is once more in jeopardy what's been the effects thus far adrian with these tariffs the fact that donald trump wants to increase them could indicate that they haven't been effective enough or maybe he was just always going to because he says it himself is a tariff man. that's right he believes that that the terrorists give him leverage in his negotiations with the chinese now the problem
11:04 am
is that china exports far more to the united states than the other way around which means the united states has more targets it can hit china in so many different ways now if from goes ahead with his announcement to to raise tariffs from ten percent to twenty five percent on two hundred billion dollars worth of chinese products that would come into effect on friday so we still have five more days so at the moment china doesn't know whether to take president at his word is this president from giving a private opinion or is this president from speaking on behalf of the u.s. government and on behalf of his trade negotiators that is unclear at the moment it's the thing we never are quite sure of are we thank you adrian brown in beijing now at least forty one people have died in russia after a passenger plane caught fire as it made an emergency landing but this dramatic
11:05 am
footage of the moments the aircraft return to moscow's sheremetyevo airport captured by an amateur cameraman the aeroflot flight was bound for the city of manske in northern russia but was forced to turn back shortly after takeoff now but some i looked on there were seventy three passengers and five crew members and twenty eight passengers and now at the airport terminal investigators and psychologists are working with them five people have been hospitalized thirty seven out of seventy eight people on board of the plane survived thirty three passengers and four crew members we spoke to john goglia earlier the former member of the u.s. national transportation safety board the n.t.s.b. who told us the plane may have been overweight when it landed. it's unusual to have that kind of fire engulfed the airplane so early after it landed now it's not clear whether or not it was a fire on board prior to landing and could just too early some of the
11:06 am
eyewitnesses was stating that there was no fire until the airplane had landed and they also have stated that the airplane had bounced on landing which may indicate that they may have broken some of the structure of the airplane and a lot of the mass of fuel leak that that kind of firewood would need to support it now. it does look like the airplane still on its landing yeah and it also. the early reports said that he didn't have time to jettison i dump any fuel from the airplane which means it was probably made an overweight landing so they'll be taking a look at the investigators will be taking a close look at that what the airplane weighed when it landed and if the structure broke on landing to provide the fuel for that kind of fire that intensity of the fire it's a fairly new airplane it's been built of flying since two thousand and eight. it has been very reliable early on they had an accident that was attributable to the
11:07 am
the flight crew making a grave mistake on a democrat demonstration flight but otherwise it's had a very good record this i believe is the third accident in total for this type of airplane and so it's it's been proven to be a pretty reliable platform you know secretary pompei i sense russia's government should stop intervening in venezuela. comments come as he's expected to meet russia's foreign minister in finland this week. i'm going to meet with foreign minister lavrov in a couple of days we'll have more conversations about this the objective was very clear we want the iranians we want the russians we want the cubans out that's also what has to take place in order for venezuelan democracy to be restored to. its russia's foreign minister sergei lavrov hit back with this response. we now see an unprecedented campaign led by the united states in order to overthrow the
