it means. business t w news live from the european union ready to react to u.s. trade turfs german chancellor angela merkel has been lobbying president trump in recent days in a bid to try and exemptions for the european union now in germany france and britain say they'll move to the fish and sea and st if they all hit spike you contentiously christine that it's also on the program. and immigration scandal brings down britain's interior minister resigning office as she admits she misled lawmakers of the targets for moving in the migrants will get the latest from our
correspondent in. the house or an escape from syria's nukes forest prisons our correspondent meeting a former inmate who's now speaking out about which will. also have all the latest going to single action for you. facing a startling braman most focus pick up a victory that will help us secure a champions league school next season. when i'm stressed of a spring thanks for joining us governments around the world are bracing for a possible trade war with washington set to decide soon whether it will impose stiff tariffs on imported steel and element both chancellor angela merkel and french president all lobbied u.s. . president all last week in
a bid to have ten exemptions for the youth from. germany now says it expects those tariffs to go into a thing with no final word yet from the white house some still hold out for a last minute change of policy in washington. let's go to brussels now to our bureau chief them actually max if the wave is on those chatter if they have actually already being imposed but there are a wave on them if those wave is a lifted tomorrow how is the european union likely to react well as you just pointed out we're not there yet the last time that granted the exemption it was a last minute call in the e.u. officials here in brussels are hoping that exactly the same thing will happen and that's why there will be a last ditch effort by the commissioner in charge for him to call her counterpart in the u.s. wilbur ross and try to convince him to extend those exemptions if it doesn't work she has announced that the response by the european union will be threefold first
of all retaliate with exactly the same measures that the u.s. are imposing secondly target specific u.s. products for example motorcycles where it really hurts and the third one is to complain at the world trade organization and max that reaction you know if this all comes to pos is it does the entire european union all of its government support that strategy. all governments safe to say think it's a bad idea to have those terrorists that's why again you had the american michael and maybe the prime ministers and chancellor so the leaders of the u.k. germany and france urged the u.s. administration not to impose them but the measures on the measures what to do once they are imposed or how to avoid them they are effectively not necessarily in agreement especially france and germany the reason for this is that germany is responsible for a large majority of the those high trade imbalances between the us and the e.u.
they have most to lose also because they have huge industrial production and that's why the germans now seem well not desperate but seem willing to go different ways for example eliminate all tariffs on all industrial products that's something apparently they're willing to negotiate with the u.s. france says probably not not with us we're more the hardliners like the e.u. commission so you see there are some differences here according to who has the most to lose in this ok max always good to. that you know these bureau chief in brussels . now let's get the can only kangal to this tariff just from thank you very much mr friended we are monitoring the reactions in the business world as well because we just heard about the political consequences but if we take a look at the numbers purely these tariffs on european aluminum and steel wouldn't actually hurt the economy that much still companies here are preparing to see their products become more expensive in the u.s.
and consumers there will literally end up paying the price trade between germany and the u.s. is booming volume grew to a total of over one hundred seventy billion euros with base signs exporting more to each other. increased u.s. import tariffs on steel and aluminum won't make much of a difference to them side them in particular because germany doesn't sell that much steel and i mean into the u.s. . global exports from german steel and alimony and produces were valued at over twenty three billion euros last year but only a tiny proportion of that went to the u.s. one point four billion euros specially six percent. and they're also very specialized products and alloys types of steel which aren't even made in the u.s. a lot of u.s. companies are dependent on importing these metals to make their products that means in the end u.s. consumers will wind up paying the increased import tariffs but that prospect still
doesn't allay fears that the dispute could still escalate. all right it's a very complex topic to analyze it here in studio i'm now joined by irwin collier from the john f. kennedy institute institute at the free university of berlin it's very good to have you with us thank you for joining us this morning here as we are seeing this unfold right now let's just assume we will see these tariffs take effect tomorrow we will probably see some concern perhaps instability in the markets is this about the specific tariffs are now possibly being imposed or just the fear of this potential trade war unfold what we're seeing is ratcheting up this was expected this is expected it's been priced into everything. on the other hand if and when it happens that these tariffs actually go into effect then it's a new reality and the rest of our life starts with the next day and that will be
the day where people are going to think will this go out of control will this be a slow sort of trade dispute that will get resolved one way or the other but it will unfold rather than you know this is not a trade war makes it sound like there's a cavalry that's going to come in things we're affronts will change very quickly no this is much more a trade war of position things will be very stable but that doesn't mean that there aren't real costs to both sides and that will also believe the pentagon how each side reacts now just economically speaking we know that you doesn't want tariffs they say it time and time again but can they just for example let it be you know just say well we will pay the terrorists for aluminum and steel to the u.s. and we're not going to retaliate at all could they afford it economically speaking as long as we put politics to the side taking the bullet if you will and proceeding in the normal way that
a trade dispute would be settled you go to the w t o i would make that a very big effort that would there. be a full court press on members of the u.s. congress and governors to make it clear what the implications would be down the line that this makes things more expensive indeed for u.s. consumers u.s. producers in a trade war both sides lose in the idea that you win if the other side loses more is a way of thinking that might have had a place in the sixteenth or seventeenth century under mercantile ism but it has no place in the twenty first century at all and we'll see if that actually happens and next vase thank you very much for one color from the john f. kennedy institute for the insight. i've. we're going to catch up with some of the of a news stories making headlines at the moment in syria a monitoring group says twenty six people have been killed in missile strikes on military facilities in the north of the country the blasts reportedly hitting
a syrian army base by iranian backed forces. the moment. israel is likely to have launched its. in afghanistan at least twenty five people have been killed and dozens injured in back to back explosions in the capital kabul with r.t. say one journalist was killed and two police officers after they rushed to the aftermath of the first explosion the blasts occurred in an area of the city housing foreign offices. u.s. border officials have prevented a group of around two hundred central american migrants from entering the country to seek asylum migrants who told facilities at the border to for president trump has warned against allowing the group to enter the u.s. in the urge to mexico to stop them. now the british interior minister amber rudd has resigned for misleading parliament about targets set for the removal of illegal
migrants rudd was tipped as a potential future prime minister as she faced a week of coals to quit fresh air was mounting following outrage of also archie's mistreatment of legal residents from the caribbean people from the so-called wind rush generation came to britain off to wealth or to back in the one nine hundred fifty s. they've been threatened with deportation but it was rudd's testimony to lawmakers last week where she denied that the government set deportation governments that ultimately brought down. joining me now to discuss this. mundine correspondent bigot just take us through that last point that i mentioned what exactly was the stroll that broke the camel's back you know what did finally force amber rod to resign. well the government has been under pressure over this for weeks but it was the rot saying that she did not know that
there are any targets in the home office for removing illegal migrants which stand out that actually there were targets and that she was also informed about it and that came out yesterday on sunday in a leaked e-mail so it was foreman's basically in front of the house of commons where she then admitted that she inadvertently misled and he says she did not tell them that there were targets and that she knew about it which then forced her to resign now a budget of course immigration is a is a hot potato in british politics one of the backgrounds to the decision to leave the european union and you know one thing is having targets for removing illegal migrants but how could the british government consider deportation for migrants who have been in britain literally for decades how could it come to that. that's really something that's incensed the british public and that's why this is such
a huge scandal because these people came in the fifty's and sixty's mostly as children and they have mostly worked in the u.k. for their whole life for some reason there were some problems with documentation and now while these people are quite often they are retired after having worked for example in school as did the ladies so really honorable jobs they are taught but in one case a gentleman that he can have cancer treatment that he's not entitled because he can't prove that he's been in the u.k. as if he's entitled to this treatment but he does have for example school records he doesn't a national insurance number so they don't really understand why this happened and so were threatened with deportation so this is really about a culture that seems really cold and hostile to immigrants and the question is how much also was to reason they involved in this she was home secretary and she's been accused that she was really part of creating this post on the environment to
refugees and the question is is that going to haunt her later on and the question that you will be keeping tabs on for us many thanks for that background london correspondent. we're going to take you to armenia now where the ruling republican party says it won't be putting forward a candidate for prime minister when parliament chooses a successor for sasha sachs yeah that's tomorrow tuesday sunshine resigned in the face of massive demonstrations he had previously served ten years as president or just as it used to trying to life a man who led those protests is now candidate to replace him but he will also need to count on the support that ruling party. thank you i. could this be the man to change the political timing to armenia. the demonstration
will continue on to the call question i came to the prime minister and i think the demonstrations can continue even further as long. as long. color of people will not be interpreted to be. put through to put our next government to be a success and we want nicole question in it or not. it is those people leave us alone and let us live freely in a free country so that's what. she did. after the weeklong protests led by pushing into oust the former pm armenia's ruling republican party seems to be listening to the masses they will not be presenting a candidate a fust in almost two decades. but they do still hold
a majority in parliament session yet may have the backing of other leading groups but will also need the support of the republicans he hopes that recent talks with the country's president also republican could craft and that i think. the. people people. in this. changes. we need we do we will go. easy is the book for. the people. an opportunity for unity from all sides of the media's political spectrum that will be a vital ingredient for the opposition as they attempt to break free of the media's many years of republican party dominance. we
have life as business news now with five year in great us i believe a big development in the us mobile telephone check that's right it's a very big one christopher that has been cooking for years actually now it seems like t. mobile us owned by germany started telecom have agreed to acquire rival sprint final that will combine the third and fourth largest wireless carriers in the u.s. if the deal is approved it will mean the creation of a carrier with one hundred twenty seven million customers that's as much as the population of japan but the merger will be facing an uphill battle in washington. it's a big deal and this video featuring the c.e.o.'s of sprint and t. mobile is proof that too while askari is doing what they can to get everyone on their side they say the merger will help them better deliver mobile services to customers in particular the latest and greatest five g. technology imo the system made that america early four g. leadership added millions of jobs in this country and billions in u.s. d.p.
i mean five g. the stakes are even higher just to put this in perspective the difference between four g. f. five g. is the difference between black and white t.v. and color t.v. but that may not be the most important thing of untied trust authorities may say the deal could harm competition much like they did in two thousand and fourteen and some analysts believe the merger could be subject to more scrutiny because both team obama and sprint owned by foreign companies but germany's deutsche telekom and tokyo based soft bank group so t. mobile and sprint have their work cut out for them if this deal is to see the light of day and we'll of course follow that story for you now if you think of travel in the middle east you'll probably think of egypt jordan or of course dubai but now ultra conservative saudi arabia wants to join the fun and become a serious alternative for foreign visitors needless to say the country has an image
problem our very own funny for char went to jeddah and saw some of the in a chip and initiatives rather already taking place to convince you to consider saudi arabia for your next getaway. a lot of history can be discovered in just a multi-cultural and diverse city and saudi arabia. has always been a bit more open to change that other more conservative parts of the country for example you will see here women without a headscarf a lot happens here first such as tourism in the past it's been limited to pilgrimage tourists or to people like them you know they are from russia or germany or belgium foreign workers want to discover the city of it or not. but if you go my name is i'm going to be your tour guide welcome to the history of this city is a three thousand. area of egypt that. a special tour in an ultra
conservative country. if i didn't know that there are two because it's not being promoted yet. so sone arabia is known as a black box the country wants to open up and it has to you know order to reduce the country's growing unemployment and state deficit. they have your hopes the changes will also rebranding the image of the kingdom. yes from here to please so the first question is always how do you saudi a pure saudi yes some saudi and there are hundreds of these like me hopefully with all these changes that would have been give the country the west would change the idea about the saudi woman it's not considered decent for women to do jobs who are men and women makes my this is changing to. the year is about to get her certification as the first female tour guide she says she has also experienced
a lot of resistance from men that saw her as competition. the tour is about to end the arabic coffee and dates. so it's the bread duty of the med that tells us this that this of the the guy who is putting it's this one it's. people because we have this. so one two three locals are just as curious as the tourists they say wait is this inability to go or so he ought so what was it like. you feel like tourists to this. and the people are also discovering you. the government wants to issue tourist visas starting this month the question is whether and how much tourism will change the ultraconservative makeup of saudi society. itself business have you had thank you we're
going to turn to syria now where human rights groups estimate that over seven thousand women are behind bars a notorious prisons run by the regime the exact numbers are on known but the reports from female prisoners who managed to escape disturbing systematic humiliation including regular beatings and electroshock came across bonnets in the region you know spoke to one syrian refugee in. a woman who spent several months in syrian presence. as he put a plastic bag over my head and beat me. then he had me up by my feet from the ceiling. more now mohammad story is hard to endure. in the end of the ones he came and said i've got a present let me show you yet she still wants to share. planted and
it was a stun gun that's going to go all the details. he asked now where's your heart. here i said and he electroshock right there. for months i was locked up in a syrian detention center for that and i saw a woman with her daughter into she cannot forget what happened there. and that is their cell was very small and dark the girl cried all the time the cuticle . kind of the law and try to catch them like below the door. more now this thirty two years she's been living in turkey because the un tape has become
a place of refuge from many syrians. likes it here in the busy markets she doesn't attract attention. in syria she used to teach music but in twenty twelve she was arrested because she joined the protests in dera sore against president assert. she was released after a while but then detained again and brought to damascus to military intelligence branch two one five detainees call it the held branch because torture there is a daily routine. and that if you or she was what i told you is only half of what happened in that prison especially to women there are many rape victims i many have been to. some are tortured to death all the people in the world should know about these things he loves them how did she.
know was released in an amnesty decree and managed to escape to turkey but thousands of women are still in torture prisons says up to her knee he documents human rights abuses in syria now all sides in the war use violence against women he says but not to systematically as the syrian government but charlotte's sites forces target women to intimidate opponents and spread fear. so using the woman or captured of the woman or a being or doing sexual harassment against them this is not individual this is a strategy actually and when she goes to speak to the society what's happened to her that will deter the society to do anything even to speak one word against this kind of. this is the. more normal hamlet experienced all of this she wrote down her story and she's collecting the reports
of other victims of torture she runs a support group where she helps women from syria she calls it project recovery. it would seem you sat down at the foot dominic. some women refused to talk about their arrest. they don't want to talk about anything that happened to them and present the side of the heart of this break down and cry all the time. that we try to convince these women that they are strong and what was done to them is not their fault. i tell them start in your life was a big one how does it work better higher than this to the. moon a new life is here in turkey but one day she hopes she can help bring her torturers to justice.
