2:02 pm
and intricate tanev of people and a nation crippled by recent history. afrikaans part one of a 2 part series on al-jazeera. welcome back you're watching al-jazeera time to recap our headlines now u.s. president donald trump and chinese president xi jinping have announced progress on trade chinese state media reports trade talks are set to resume will hold off on imposing new tariffs north korea has responded to an invitation by the u.s. president to meet kim drove one juror in his trip to south korea from yang's
2:03 pm
foreign minister described it as an interesting suggestion but noted they hadn't received any official proposal. in a meeting with turkey's president trump said solutions are possible over a dispute over the sale of an air defense system from russia the u.s. has previously threatened to pull the sale of f. 35 fighters and impose sanctions if the russian deal went ahead. brendan o'connor is an associate professor of american politics at the united states studies center which is. in the university of sydney good to have you with us so the nicest lines coming out of the meeting between trump and she is talk of progress are you optimistic. well talks of better than threats and 300300 1000000000 extra tariffs being put on chinese goods would have been good for the united states were to be good for china wouldn't it be good for the world economy it is progress but there's much ahead with trump i think he writes itself
2:04 pm
obviously as a deal micah as a negotiator the substance of this is hard to see exactly where it's going but a decrease in tension is a very good thing i mean part of the problem with this tried wall was that it was an escalation and i saw it's business people worried about visiting china from the united states threats being made by the side and that that was not good for anyone other than the talks of. not imposing times the other 2 sides any closer on some of the other really divisive issues while way in trade and so on. no it doesn't pay as saw i mean this into a real sort of gridlock on some of these intellectual property it claims of chinese spying through their sort of technology finds of unfairness there's a sort of suggestion that trump would try to use china in his reelection campaign in 2020 to ply off against the democrats and make they have position on china more
2:05 pm
difficult so it is really you know some people don't think there's a great deal of incentive even trying to negotiate on this issue of compromise but at least they getting back to the table the too late is the negotiating teams are coming back to the table but it's just not many good signs of where the compromise is to be found in this negotiation and that's why really i mean with us if she's been on the table since the beginning of the trump and ministration and we've seen very little progress really intense the chinese wanting to back down talking about a conciliatory tone the u.s. president kind of blamed u.s. policy itself on to the administration of obama for the problems with turkey is that an indication that perhaps a resolution of that one might be a hand. well that's a complex issue isn't it i mean many people have criticized so the coddling
2:06 pm
dictators like it or one inciting that from you know beans out of backwards for. terri and leaders and as plays a hard game when it's you know his allies in the in the night our country side once again it's hard to sort of know what trumps trying to do with that commentary on selling weapons we've seen and being willing obviously to sell weapons to the saudis side is that willingness to just see business is business and separated out from human rights concerns and other concerns and not surprising for trump to criticize longstanding u.s. policy policy certainly made under our play off against ties but i think that being many people in the united states saying well hang on you know what one of the turkish government offering the united states how they shine some improvements on democracy and human rights before we let them have you know the base u.s. fight applying to the base u.s. military equipment all right thanks so much for your analysis on that front in a coma. my pleasure after more than 2 weeks
