6:13 pm
and since then he's trying to opening up things and he sees this election as another example of him opening up so according to him everything went free and fair there were no major problems and he once again said that even what to measure millet national service said but this is not fully true because it's a national observers have been saying that they're wearing these problems in the electoral process for example that your opinion is that there's an unlevel playing field and elect of trust was that the electoral process to be set in the cation that things did not go as well as you could trace it to be and the needs of the opposition m.d.c. in essence your misa has called this a day of mourning for democracy and he says his spot he simply does not accept the results of this election what does he and his party plan to do now. well indeed said that once again today that according to his numbers he won the election he
6:14 pm
does not accept the official numbers by the electoral commission but he was not very clear what exactly is going to do basically it has two options right now he could go to court and she confirmed that he would use all legal and constitutional ways to challenge the result to one option would be to go to court to the supreme court to challenge the elections and the other option would be of course to mobilize his supporters to bring them back to the street because he has a massive support base but if we think back what happened when they the outbreak of violence when opposition people went on the streets this might be a dangerous option and this is probably the reason why you did not say that this would be an option right now for him and this is beginning to sound like a deadlock with two competing narratives they had me in such great hopes of this election on june the first one of the possible gobby into what to be able to make of these developments absolutely i talked to a couple of young people on the street today to get their opinion on this issue and of course they have different political parties they are supporting but almost
6:15 pm
everybody was like well we definitely need things to change in the better the rich and you know the bab was almost bankrupt the country is heavily deficit and there's a huge unemployment number for young people extremely difficult to find jobs and most of those people told me well our number one priority is now to have stability finally so that our economy can get back on track and that we finally have a perspective again of increase in heart on it thank you very much for that update from that. ok helena joins me now and she has the latest on the tip for tat tat of between the u.s. and china thank you and we're talking about more threats on both sides of this off to donald trump's top economic adviser says that the united states and china have been holding high level trade talks but the two sides appear to have found well little common ground larry kudo described china's threat to impose another sixty billion dollars worth of tariffs on the u.s. as weak and said the wall second biggest economy was quote in trouble with
6:16 pm
a trumpet administration accuses china of stealing intellectual property and not playing by trade rules china denies those allegations and says u.s. protectionism is a threat to go global trade. and we can bring in our financial correspondent for more on this now daniel coupes the frankfurt stock exchange and daniel china has said it's prepared to hit back with further tariffs do we have details on what. yes it all seems a little bit to be like kindergarten hell of a tree in those two countries first the u.s. president says i'm going to hit you with tears than the chinese counterpart they're saying they're going to hit back as well and china is a country is just very proud and they know they have this big potential so it's clear for them that they need to react so yes we are learning that possible terrorists could be including natural gas peter turkey turkey's condoms yes you heard correctly condoms and helicopters and while china is saying
6:17 pm
that the u.s. tears are completely an over reaction of the u.s. president they are calling their all in ones actually reasonable and also cautious after a meeting with his u.s. counterpart one of the chinese foreign minister stated that china wants to keep negotiating but let me tell you had another topic is going to be also the number one topic here next week at the stock markets we are quite we are expecting quite some volatility because of that and. also seemingly to imply that the white house is nearing trade deals with the european union and mexico tell us more about that yes exactly he is saying that they are making progress and that within a month new details could be released this would be rather surprised actually because there is still lots to talk about between the u.s. and the european union and also with mexico but i guess there's also another reason why it's saying this at the moment and many in the tram administration share the
6:18 pm
view that china has isolated itself in this tears discussion and they want to send a message to china are making clear if that they don't just you know depend on china and if china doesn't get more flexible they will do more trade free trade with europe possible with mexico and that you know china really needs to rethink and maybe get a little bit more flexible all right diet coke for us at the frankfurt stock exchange thank you daniel. ryan is irish pilots have conducted a fourth day of strikes prompting the budget carrier to appeal for third party mediation to solve the dispute some three thousand five hundred passengers were affected by the latest industrial action which comes as ryanair faces increasing pressure to improve working conditions for the strikes are planned for this day next week with pilots from ireland belgium and sweet and hedging to walk off the job if their demands aren't met. well the summer heat wave is taking its toll
6:19 pm
on europe's waterways as levels full but the temperature also affects fish and that's proving a headache for factories that rely on the water cooler for cooling like on germany's biggest river the high where one company is stepping up efforts to avoid getting into hot water with authorities. this is a cooling tower run by a german chemical company thing a s.s. into. the water comes from the rhine and lowers the temperature of the production line but before it's pumped back into the river the water itself has to be cooled down again to ensure it doesn't heat the river up that use of energy and it costs money with summer seemingly getting hotter being s.f. is investing in more thrilling towers. where thinking they'll be more of a need to cool down then in the past due to company expansion as well as possible climate change this kind of construction is about being prepared.
6:20 pm
for. the rivers temperature and oxygen levels have to be monitored constantly it's almost twenty eight degrees in the brine near mines. high temperatures leave companies with the choice of either reducing production or paying for the continued use of river water. that firms are forced to pay for using river water we've installed a measuring instrument the firms have to pay when they reintroduced the cooling water and that caused them to rethink the practice. low water levels are also proving a headache cargo ships are traveling almost empty and many goods have to be shipped by rail or road. now whether it is driving up beer sales are nowhere more than in china is now the world's biggest beer market and heineken wants to get in on the act and expand in the country over top spring giantess buying a forty percent share in the listed entity of state owned c r b which is the
