3:01 pm
a trade war. also coming up in the next sixty minutes meet the minister as jilting social democrats who's getting the top posts and chalk on love back is a new coalition government key among them a forum that is still largely untested in international diplomacy. and cruel at times by war and violence so even children arrive in a refugee camp in lebanon militant with haunting memories a new initiative is turning their stories into the pot. calling of a warm welcome to you i'm. one leaders have been responding to a potential breakthrough in the nuclear standoff with north korea german chancellor angela merkel spoke a short while ago she gave a cautious welcome to the prospect of a summit between u.s.
3:02 pm
president donald trump and north korean leader kim jong un here's what she said. this is my call as a glimmer of hope it needs work because of course really seeing a deescalation would be wonderful because for all of us the nuclearization of north korea has been a grave concern. in the german chancellor angela merkel that the other key players in the north korean nuclear crisis and also weighed in china urged the two countries to find a political resolution russia called the finest evill plans talks between the leaders of the u.s. and korea a step in the right direction and it was south korea that appears to have convinced trump and kim to soften their war of words and embrace diplomacy. this is the man doing the running between p.r. and washington d.c. and he's finally reached a major milestone. toward president president from you know
3:03 pm
meeting north korea kim jong un. committed to. north korea really differing from any for. he expressed this even if the president thought. as possible it is a sentiment shared by the u.s. president hu confirmed that a meeting is being planned. for historic breakthrough comes after south korean negotiators held talks in pyongyang on monday it was here they learned that denuclearization was on the menu. far from giving up their bombs in recent years north korea has been ratcheting up its mesereau program and the threats. fired back with warnings of annihilation and insults for kim jong il. rocket man is on
3:04 pm
a suicide mission for himself and for his regime. on the front lines of this conflict the capitals of the korean peninsula relief and distrust so it is good news now everything is heading the right way judging from kim jong un's character i don't think he will give weapons easily. but i can't believe either of them i don't know what's in trump's head and i'm doubtful he is serious about this meeting but the. details are still being worked on when and where exactly trump will come face to face with his a vote enemy. whether they see eye to eye is another matter entirely. joining me now from washington is our cars on kasten phenomena allison what other reactions to these developments in washington this must have come as
3:05 pm
a big surprise. well the reactions range from unrestricted praise for president trump and deep skepticism from supporters say that it was the president's strategy of mexico pressure of new sanctions and the threat of military action that brought north korea to the negotiation table others are deeply skeptical of they think north korea is playing for time and trying to play to donald trump's a vanity disk was definitely a big surprise a bombshell of course the white house had some warnings from the south koreans the something big was coming out of their talks to north korea but most other people were taken by surprise that not only there is this invitation from kim jong il but also donald trump immediately accepted it and even put a date made to it spontaneously we'll have to see how this works i mean clearly
3:06 pm
donald trump once this because no other president has done that he wants to be seen as an unconventional president who gets things done because he does then his own way this was on full display yesterday when the president unexpectedly popped up in the briefing room and told the journalists in the white house including our washington bureau chief that something big was coming and he hoped the media would give him credit for this so clearly donald trump himself was pretty excited about this and he said he was excited but his secretary of state next to listen also seemed to have been taken by surprise might this develop and let's take a listen to what he said. does it offer her way off. your shoulder. conversation with evaluation. not to say rex tillerson speaking then constant as you said the meeting could take take place as early as two months
3:07 pm
that's fairly soon to prepare for a summit of this kind absolutely the big question is what's could come out of this meeting what concrete results could be there the problem is that the americans don't really have a real expert team of korea experts in place they don't even have an ambassador in south korea so how to prepare are going to trump for such a meeting who is known to often shoot from the hip be very spontaneous we know what the north koreans want kim jong un wants to be seen as an equal to the u.s. president but what do the americans do if north korea then in these talks of kim jong un india's talks simply resists any attempts to really get the north koreans get rid of the nuclear weapons i don't think they will give up their nuclear weapons and then what happens next and i don't think that the americans are really prepared for serious negotiations at this point that cost cost and phenomena in
3:08 pm
washington thank you very much. now for some analysis on this story i'm going to the studio mostly he's a professor of korean studies at buttons university welcome. now we heard what carson had to say that this move this development of a potential summit between north korea and the u.s. has taken a lot of people by surprise it seems like an unprecedented breakthrough how do you view it i optimistic it will come to anything yes i'm definitely optimistic rather pessimistic about this new event what's the reason for optimism well first of all compared to preceding similar situations on on the peninsula we have very different actors with kim jong un with trump and with the new president in south korea when seen very different conditions north korea has developed its nuclear arsenal to a certain extent completed its program so they have a bargaining chip
3:09 pm
a real body and ship them also to make real decisions compared to situations and the recent developments in recent weeks. really saw a steady increasing development of exchanges that now culminated in this decision now both the leaders of the u.s. as well as north korea of viewed as a little bit unpredictable now given jonas said that he wouldn't give you a clear eyes if the conditions are right conditions what condition what does god want in return for denuclearization it's well known that the core of their what they want is the survival of the regime meaning that they get secured that they will not be attacked by the u.s. in the best case scenario this would be a peace treaty between an all korea and the united states and maybe plus some economic development aid from from the united states so and so this would be i
3:10 pm
think what he wanted but my giving up the nuclear weapons of course they would lose their chief bargaining chip the north koreans but now. is the u.s. taking a huge risk in going in for this summit because people in congress want to direct talks with the u.s. for decades right i think donald trump has nothing to lose here and the u.s. has not always actually didn't have any to lose but they did not go into this face to face meeting before and that's what makes very different this time if it actually happens and this would be a good opportunity for building trust between these two unpredictable leaders now you know there's a lot of discussion about how this came about obviously you mentioned south korea and south korea they perhaps a crucial role in this but what about china was it done in the screws in the background i don't think that it was about school turning the screws i think the most as you said the most important part here was played by south korea to have
3:11 pm
this role of a mediator or facilitator in between north korea and the u.s. . but the role of china is very important and i think it was very important that this time change china also agreed to a certain extent to uphold the sanctions against north korea but it wasn't the most decisive element here right this was the professor if a korean studies had buttons for university thank you very much. u.s. president donald trump has signed off on terrorists between ten and twenty five percent on steel and aluminum imports he says they are necessary to address unfair trade conditions boost the u.s. economy and crib jobs still only accounts for two percent of world trade and yet the tit for tat of tariffs and penalties is dangerous the ripple effects can escalate into a full on trade war quite quickly u.s. business leaders and prominent members of his own republican party have warned his
3:12 pm
administration is courting economic disaster. with just one signature u.s. president donald trump has authorized plans to place import tariffs on steel and alan minium witnessing the moment was still the order will keep the job safer in the future today i'm defending america's national security by placing tariffs on foreign imports of steel and aluminum the motion has been met with harsh criticism wild wides the chancellor voice of concerns of the german economy summit calling for dialogue with the president is in on the dog and. so we're also concerned about the imposition of tariffs on certain products and as a government we have a clear commitment to multilateralism we support the european commission as it seeks talks with them while trade organization and the u.s. start feeling. the european steel industry is also advocating counter measures by
3:13 pm
the e.u. and warns that the consequences of a trade war could also hurt the u.s. . he will actually create job losses net in this in the supply chain and in the u.s. so it's not going to benefit the u.s. and it's going to knock off twenty thousand direct jobs in the u.s. and perhaps as much as one hundred fifty thousand jobs in the e.u. as well trump's decision has also triggered outrage in asia south korea is considering filing a complaint with the well trade organization while china is threatening countermeasures if the tariffs go ahead. now let's get the view from europe and bring in our correspondent in brussels terry terry the use hoping to get an exemption from these new tariffs how realistic you think that is. well it remains to be seen but they're actually going further rather euphemistically and saying they expect to get an exemption although president trump announced that canada and mexico would get them the fact that nothing was said about europe specifically
3:14 pm
makes e.u. leaders continue to say they're seeking more details and basically presuming that there will be exemptions for europe as well certainly more will be known after tomorrow there will be a meeting between a trade commissioner cecilia mom's term and the u.s. trade representative robert light hisor here in brussels and so was security cecilia mom's time says she'll be should be able to clarify the situation a bit after this meeting its european union has said the plan would be met with retaliatory tariffs always a tit for tat already starting are we heading for a trade war. european commission vice president yet it got done and just spoke just moments ago and he said that europe is very much still trying to head off a trade war although they don't use that phrase because even though they believe is inflammatory he said that with with plenty of negotiation still ahead they definitely hope that negotiation will win the day that the u.s.
3:15 pm
will see that this is not the way to handle their very real concerns about overcapacity in the steel sector which europe also has been battling and points the finger at china as does the u.s. so europe is going to try to talk what it believes is some sense into the trunk administration and say let's work on this on the same side the time and said neither justification being used by the trump administration is that would for europe that there's a national security threat of some kind doesn't work with your closest nato allies and he says european companies have never dumped steel in u.s. markets so basically they're ruling out the reasons that trump says this steel tariffs are necessary on european producers and hoping that that argument wins the day. justifications a trump a single germany for justifying why. because donald trump is obsessed with nato spending and the fact that most european countries are far below the two percent of g.d.p. that they're supposed to be spending for and for nato defense investments and that
3:16 pm
was a bit of a strange turn in his speech although perhaps not completely unexpected given that he returns to that topic quite often and that in fact was something that was asked of your kick out fine and today were you surprised that nato spending came up in a in a question about trade and he said nato has nothing to do with this discussion and he said by the way these are not trade negotiations and we will make no concessions on this he said these are unilateral actions by the united states and they'll be treated as such he says that within ninety days retaliatory measures will be ready to be implemented and the e.u. won't hesitate to drag the us in front of the w t o on this. thank you very much for about an hour from brussels perhaps the new shouldn't come as much of a surprise judging by one of donald trump's first actions when he came to office he pulled the u.s. out of negotiations on the transpacific partnership or t p p but the other
3:17 pm
countries decided to go it alone and have now gone ahead and signed it anyway creating a massive new free trade zone it was a deal that many thought dead in the water after donald trump withdrew the united states but now that agreement is reality and the chilean host called it a bulwark against protectionism. well this is a modern treaty with a vision towards the future that creatively incorporates new themes of international trade said that the benefits of globalization can reach everyone japan initially said t p p would be meaningless without the u.s. but tokyo quickly became the prime mover in reviving the ambitious deal which these tariffs lowered or eliminated on a wide range of goods. you see the story. pre-screen. who is trained to first century. speak read.
3:18 pm
to me. to the spirit uses your speeches and. answers you premier of. the c p t p p's eleven signatories have a combined population of half a billion people and account for nearly fourteen percent of global economic output even without the u.s. it's being touted as the biggest free trade area in the world but leaders stress the door is still open and not just to washington the fact is because the deal is now signed it is something to which the u.s. could return at some point in the future and to which other countries can join you guys already expressed interest. the irony is that washington joined the t.p. pina goshi ations ten years ago hoping to rein in china's growing influence in world trade now it could be helping to expand it while one of the
3:19 pm
possible that you trade agreement is of course australia and let's cross over now to our correspondent in sydney peter how much does a kind of united front of t.p. p c p country countries make up for the damage that the tariffs will cause. most probably yes that is a pretty strong strong union of states now created and some of these states like malaysia are vietnam or peru even they are very very export hungry and they're trying to be as strong as they can and they would do almost everything for good exports but maybe that is not even necessary because. here in australia a lot of business people think that the world trade organisation the w t o will not lead a trump go like he wants to go that there will try to. get into quarter two to just not allow him what he's going to do and on the other hand here in australia
3:20 pm
these tariffs these new tariffs on steel and aluminum are not a very big problem australia is neither big steel nor big aluminum exporter that is not important in that business so it doesn't hurt but some people say and i do not understand why but some people say that there are already secret agreements between trump and prime minister malcolm turnbull about an extension of these tariffs so let's see let's wait and hope that trump will realize that he may be made a mistake these are very very briefly please australians pm seem confident that he's getting an exemption is he right they are confident that they will get an exemption but as i already mentioned they do not really need an extension of tariffs on steel and aluminum did
3:21 pm
a hammond in the senate there thank you very much. and that's all your business for now i'll be back a bit later in the show. thank you very much. here's a look at some of the stories making news around the wild the red cross says an aid convoy has entered syria's eastern huta area after being delayed for days by fighting but they are reports that airstrikes have resumed close to where supplies were being delivered. and at least nine people are reported dead after an explosion in afghanistan's capital kabul police say they believe a suicide bomber carried out the blast in the minority area the so-called islamic state claimed responsibility for the attack in a statement online. came germy the social democrats have announced the names of the six ministers from their party who will join. new coalition government three women and three men will head up the foreign ministry labor justice family environment
3:22 pm
and the coveted finance portfolio but only after some serious bickering within the party. the end of a drawn out process after prolonged squabbling over the foreign ministry the s.p.d. finally presents its picks for the new german cabinet recent years have been marred by ministerial bickering so this time the party wants team players. we've sought to put together a good team that can work together extremely well a good team mate of highly competent people with the expertise to take on significant portfolios. all of is set to become vice chancellor and take on the coveted post of finance minister former justice minister takes a career leap to become foreign minister by to face he will need both his diplomatic skills and his ability to stand firm because in today's uncertain world
3:23 pm
germany is also been called on as a mediator. he's also a triathlete which will give him one of the qualities he'll need as foreign minister and durrance convert the new employment minister is who booked us heigho who has twenty years of parliamentary experience the three male s.p.d. ministers will be joined in the cabinet by three women catarina bali had long been tipped for renewed membership in the cabinet she moves to the justice ministry making room at the ministry of family affairs for francis could give ferry a relatively unknown politician outside berlin where she is currently mayor of the district of new. ones in our district there are three hundred thirty thousand people from one hundred fifty countries including many girls who are growing up in a world where is not a given that they can lead a self-determined life can send us should also lacks experience on the federal level she is set to become environment minister another fresh face in the new
3:24 pm
german government that will be sworn in on wednesday. joining me now is our political correspondent nina nina so first of all i mean you have the six nominees now from the s.p.d. how well do you think they'll work which owns the meccans conservatives and the new coalition government well the s.p.d. the social democrats have appointed a mix an interesting mix of experienced people and fresh faces so three of them three of those ministers here who were appointed today have an experience in working together with angola machall as ministers because we mustn't forget that of course the past eight four eight of the past twelve years the social democrats have been in a government together with uncle americal so three of the people who were appointed today have an experience of ministers with until america and three are completely new people so it'll be you know an experience right and now they've appointed or nominated heikal mosse the former justice minister as the new foreign minister not
3:25 pm
key comes in at a difficult time with a trade war looming between the u.s. and europe as well as germany tell us about him and his experience as an interesting character he was a pretty unsuccessful regional politician until my galbally a. form of foreign minister appointed him to become justice minister has served as justice minister he has cabinet experience but he lacks foreign policy experience he has zero experience that but he has an extremely good foreign affairs experienced members of staff that he can rely on good team and also people say don't underestimate him because in the cabinet he has challenge people like the extremely influential conservative politician and he has managed to actually criticize him publicly and so it'll be interesting to see it'll be a completely different tone to the gobbler of course. sometimes called. the anti
3:26 pm
alpha politician but maybe in these times of dominant figures on the world stage it will be refreshing to see somebody who actually likes it negotiate rather than just push through and he obviously was a quite a popular as a justice minister as well what about the other cabinet nominees what kind of axes do you think they'll be bringing in to the guy a new government i think there are two. really eye catching appointments one is of course all of shorts as the finance minister not necessarily because of his personality but it will be interesting to see how the s.p.d. as the junior partner in this coalition managed to. reign over the finance ministry such an important finance ministry it was seen as a major concession by anglo machall that the s.p.d. actually got this finance ministry and the other interesting personalities of course francisco defy who's not known on the berlin stage told she's young woman
3:27 pm
from east germany who is now the mayor of knight cohen here in berlin and so she has a pragmatic approach to tackling problems that are on the ground so the new german government has been a long time in the making and i'll be very close to having a new government what do you think will be its first priorities according to the coalition deal it is europe the chaps around europe is the first chapter in the coalition deal and if you look at what's happening in europe and there is there's a desperate need for reform and mackel and the french president manuel michel have a very narrow window of opportunity to actually implement some much needed reforms european elections coming up next year of course i think that is one of the big priorities as a political correspondent it was a pleasure to have you here thank you. here washing still to come a generation with dreams broken by war

3:36 pm
there was just the recommendation to get out we see the dilemma of the people who go and the people who stay and we also see how difficult it is for even a well organized technologically advanced country like japan to come up with an adequate response to a catastrophe on this level film school food to sort through which translates as my home town so the film is also about this connection to the land to a place that you call home and that is certainly a very big factor in people's reluctance to the. forty seven generations secure a notice family has been taking care of a buddhist temple look at it just outside the nuclear exclusion zone the notice couldn't possibly give up this ancient tradition.
