12:03 pm
a wrecking ball on the international stage now and there's disagreement in almost every point the g seven is nobody talking about if it comes to trade if it comes to climate change if it comes to foreign policy there's no common ground anymore and it's very likely that there will be no common resolution or common statement after this g. seven summit but only a declaration made by three door the host of the summit earlier we spoke to she's a g seven x. but this is a listen to what he had to say. instead that we see a cohesive group of seven major western countries we rather see even according to some european officials a kind of g six brazil won the other six trying to convince the trump administration about certain things such as climate such as not i'm barking on a trade war on the year and
12:04 pm
a clear deal. then listen to that analysis is this the end of the g seven as we know it at least for now. this summit and can certainly be the last g seven summits in this format and it's not only the europeans who are saying this is also the americans the main economic advisor of donald trump has said that the administration will now disregard all international bodies all the multilateral approaches so this could be finally over and this it's no accident that china and russia meeting in parallel to this g. seven summit they're clearly signaling that it's up to everybody there's an eternity of to this western dominated world we're living in interesting to an international politics vendetta in brussels thank you very much for the not is this is suddenly america's closest allies who have breezing for a showdown at the g.

seven summit in quebec today but just as they've also been gathering in quebec city to drive away from the resort where the g seven leaders will meet their anger is directed at political leaders and their lack of action on crucial issues which affect people's lives. as world leaders gather in a luxury resort town this is a new woman wants them to remember the indigenous people who lived in canada first . the sixty two year old says they should be focusing on how to stop ravaging the mountains and cutting down trees on the reserve where she lives. i want the leaders to stop selling our lands because we still need to go into our forests and practice our incest all rights to go fishing to go hunting to go pick wild fruits. she's joining protesters in the first demonstration against the summit taking place in quebec. is this still
12:06 pm
says it's a march bringing together a wide range of interests but all believe the g seven leaders are wasting time and money without making any real progress and putting on a show that distracts from the biggest problems facing society today. and burial is smoke. and it's not democratic well there's no way in actual fact in doing anything to protect the environment i would like the g. seven and all the other countries of the world to do more against plastic with a stop start leaving the scene for starters. but they're not optimistic that any of these goals will be achieved. the protesters here come from diverse groups and backgrounds but they are united by one common grievance they think that the leaders at the g. seven summit are not qualified to speak about the issues on the agenda and if they
12:07 pm
don't have the credibility to discuss things like gender equality and climate change. hosting the summit is also costing canadian taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars. and this year it looks set to be more dysfunctional than ever before as the traditional allies struggle to find common footing with u.s. president donald trump on even the most basic of issues. when donald trump has a couple of summits on his agenda he says he would consider inviting north korean leader kim jong un to the white house if next week's summit between the two leaders goes bad trump also said attitude is more important in preparation as he gets set to negotiate the deal. of the korean peninsula the u.s. president made the comments after meeting at the white house would just prance fineness to thought of a friday of diplomatic activity ahead of the summit. to
12:08 pm
washington with the news that he's on off relationship with north korea looks to be very much back on having canceled the singapore summit two weeks ago he appears now to believe that it could be the start of an unprecedented era of peace in northeast asia i hope the upcoming meeting in singapore represents the beginning of a bright new future for north korea and indeed a bright new future for the world the deed nuclearization of the korean peninsula would assure in a new era of prosperity security and peace for all koreans in north and south and for people everywhere trump also left the door open for more talks with the north korean leader even on home soil if the summit does go well will you in inviting north korean leader kim jong il to the united states well the answer is yes to the second part of your question but certainly if it goes well and i think it would be well received i think he would look at it very favorably so i think
12:09 pm
that could happen. all i can say is i am totally prepared to walk away i did it once before much thank you but before the singapore summit trump faces more tough diplomacy when he heads to the g seven meeting in canada. they have not been up to date at some other stories making news around the authorities say some six hundred homes have been swallowed by lava flows on big island since the killer began erupting last month that makes this the most destructive eruption in modern times the u.s. geological survey says. has increased the size of the island by more than one square kilometer. facebook says private by up to fourteen million users were made public last month the social network blames a software bug for the problem which it says is now fixed that mission follows an earlier revelation that facebook was sharing user data with device makers including

12:11 pm
in stick undergrowth. dr opened the door through after the discovery of the corpse and the post-mortem that was carried out we must assume that the deceased was the victim of a violent sexual assault of the. two asylum seekers were suspects in the killing a thirty five year old turkish man was detained briefly but released the second his twenty year old from iraq a teenage boy led police to bashar who had already been denied asylum the boy and bashar lived in the same refugee center when police searched the center they discovered had left they believe that days ago he along with his parents and five siblings fled from just to istanbul and then to the city of bell in northern iraq. the tickets were booked for all eight people using names different from the ones we know these people to have. a concert. was already known to police for assault
12:12 pm
robbery and he suspected of having right to an eleven year old in the refugee center now an international manhunt is underway as police seek justice in the brutal killing of fourteen year old suzanna let me now draw an achievement. lots of open questions in this case for example how does one explain that eight people could leave the country using different names than on the ticket than on their passports and one of them a suspect. yes the police here in germany say that basically one thing the id documents and these iraqis who had failed to actually be able to claim asylum here in germany and the so-called less a fair documents which appear to have been issued by the iraqi embassy here in germany now those documents are checked by the border police when they
12:13 pm
leave the country and the actual tickets were checked by the airline so this notch is actually not legally required and that's how they were able to leave without this disparity becoming apparent at the same time they had already left the country by the time the police had been notified by this thirteen year old boy of the main suspect so the police was actually not looking for this family as it was leaving the country at the same time german authorities would be inclined to let iraqis who leave germany to go back to iraq voluntarily. that's something that the german government has been able or has been trying to encourage amongst migrants here who have not been able to claim asylum so without the context of this murder case this looks like something that at that particular point in time potentially didn't even look suspicious and this give is of course reignited this whole debate about
12:14 pm
linking crime to refugees and as we heard in as you told us this assists suspect. how does asylum claims rejected which meant he had to leave the country and yet he stayed on how does one explain this is this just bureaucratic bungling. well there are two issues here i mean first of all this is a criminal case and there's an investigation going on but the teams particularly since it hid bill citing that certainly germany's largest selling tabloid here in germany which basically now asked for the government to apologize to the parents of this girl that was so tragically murdered here over the migration policy we have a link that has been created between the status of this migrant and actual criminality now this is just six here and me speak a slightly different language there the statistics have gone down but violent crime has gone up there's one coherent study in the state of lower saxony largest state which indicates that most of the rise in violent crime was indeed through migrants
12:15 pm
coming to germany but that's also because the vast majority of those who've come here are young men who always feature much larger in these very statistics of violence but there's certainly a lot of potential for a criminal case to become highly politically charged in germany and that's what we're seeing unfolding right now and we should have caused a lot of people dispute those statistics and that link between crime and refugees and migrants but this has become a big debate here what happens next. well what we're seeing actually right now is that politicians are trying to contain this issue in the sense of trying not to let an individual case be taken as symbolic eight once again coming up about how much of a factor migration is in a potential rise of crime here in germany but the statistics i can just say that
12:16 pm
once again don't suggest that migrants are more. active when it comes to violent crime than any other comparative group amongst germans. do you have used chief political editor. thank you monica has joins me now from businesses and door to bomb could make a radical move to save its troubled business money it needs to do something we all know that's a recent antidote to bank chairman paul has reportedly been speaking with shareholders about a mojo with competitor commands bunk now according to bloomberg talks have not yet reached a formal stage the two banks were said to have broken off negotiations in the summer off twenty six stephen and speculation has grown about a possible merger between deutsche and commands banks since private equity company said the risk capital took a share in both bangs and for the latest let's cross over to our financial
12:17 pm
market correspondent will be bouncing from food or lee germany's number one and germany's number two lend us men know if that is true would you say that that is a good move. well it would certainly create more of a powerhouse on both of them are a part of the moment it would save tremendously in cost because of course if they merged they won't need to let go thousands more people they're already in the midst of restructuring and letting go of thousands or eliminating thousands of jobs in a socially responsible way but they would need to go beyond that if they went together and the expense of such a move right stage that would be incurred basically immediately and the benefits would occur later so people i talked to today said that if indeed they were visiting something like that they would need to do the homework that they have now at the moment first and then maybe have a merger
12:18 pm
a medium term but not now that would not make sense people told me you know the merger is also interesting from another perspective because the german government holds about sixteen percent stake in clematis bank how would that stake be impacted by a midget. well if the if the state stayed in the come out spunk. before a merger and during a merger and after than it would be issued stakeholder in an even bigger bank and it would of course have a big say in how things go. we don't know whether the government will do that we don't know if a merger will occur but it's an interesting prospect one thing's for sure the government can't sell can't leave can't exit now because it would only get a fraction of what it paid back in the crisis of two thousand and eight when it went in in order to rescue the come out spunk and after all it's not bad to have one big german bank where the state isn't there as
12:19 pm
a character with all the jitters going about at the moment be interesting to see whole this plays out only about some five thank you so much. tina and the international monetary fund have reached an agreement for a three year fifty billion dollars standby arrangement the government says it's sort financing to provide a safety net and avoids the frequent crises of past the i.m.f. board still has to approve the bailout loan. the deal marks a turning point for argentina for years argentina shunned the i.m.f. after the economic crisis of two thousand and one two thousand and two many argentines blamed that crisis on austerity measures which the i.m.f. had demanded and they took to the streets again in protest against president mauricio mockeries the negotiations with the fund argentina requested i.m.f. assistance early last month after its peso currency weaken sharply in an investor exodus the chairman of the central bank and the finance minister announced the deal
12:20 pm
on thursday when most of the. standby we've agreed on standby access the amount of fifty billion dollars this is eleven times greater than argentina's quota which is reflective of the support of the international community for argentina it's very good news the integration of argentina to the world which allows us to have this level of support. but. you know bush only if i need to. the agreement will hold the argentine government to its promise to reduce its deficit to two point seven percent this year the government will also send a proposal to congress to reform the central bank charter and strengthen its autonomy duke of me said the country aims to be in surplus by twenty twenty. the world's largest furniture company is stepping up measures to reduce its carbon footprint sweden's ikea says all its products will be made from sustainable and

recycled materials by the year twenty thirty and then the next two years it plans to remove all single use plastic products from its in-store snack bar the announcement comes just days after the european union moved to ban the use of single use plastic products across the block. well u.s. president donald trump plans to leave the g. seven summit in canada a few hours early skipping sessions on climate change on the environment that's according to an announcement by the white house climate change of course has been high on the g seven agenda in recent years but little has been achieved especially when it comes to those thirteen million tonnes of plastic that are washed into the sea every year. five gigantic marine plastic garbage islands float around the world's ocean currents. the great pacific garbage patch drifts between hawaii and california it's four times larger than germany. happily the floating quagmire could

get something of a purge this summer. the ocean cleanup is the brainchild of churchmen boy and slant it's a boom which drifts more slowly than the plastic which collects along behind it to be recovered for recycling the cleanup sissoko automatically gravitate to those places where most class tickets that now cause the efficiency to be a lot higher because there's just more plastic in front of the system and therefore we can now create about fifty percent of that that in just five years. collected over thirty million dollars in donations to develop the ocean to clean up the place it's already been tested in the north sea if it's successful in the pacific it'll be employed against the garbage carpeting other oceans as well. but that won't solve the root of the problem that will only change when people change their habits producing and using less plastic and recycling what does get made more efficiently . that's of

first warning came only after volcanic ash was raining down. now authorities blame each other the ones who are in charge of monitoring the volcano said they had been releasing information all weekend long and then the ones who were supposed to evacuate people that only give advise forty five minutes after the explosion occurred. the opposition in parliament is now saying that they will investigate the government in order to see if there was any negligence from the authorities. now it's the community that has to come together in a show of solidarity with people donating food and other items to help fellow guatemalans who suffered catastrophic losses. nuffin sport and the world cup and russia is just around the corner and germany have finished their training camp in italy confident they have done the necessary groundwork for a successful tournament despite losing last week's friendly against austria the
