opens later this year china's leadership often uses political advances an occasion to flaunt its successes to the media. and it's a welcome distraction china's economy is burdened with the consequences of its trade dispute with the u.s. municipalities and state run companies are struggling under high levels of debt addressing china's national people's congress from a leak a chuang issued a warning. we face a complex and serious situation as well as challenges foreseeable and otherwise that are greater in number and in. size. also announced market reforms aimed at leveling the playing field for chinese and foreign companies this bid to diffuse u.s. complaint has made delegates more optimistic that the trade dispute with the u.s. could soon be resolved only issues that you and the u.s.
astonishing to get used to each other i think there is growing trust between the people and the governments of both countries. china has announced a further increase in defense spending up seven point five percent on the previous year with this china hopes to strengthen its military allowing its troops to train under more realistic conditions. with me in the studio now is they a former china correspondent clifford coonan he's covering the story for us thanks for joining us the national people's congress is often described as a rubber stamp parliament the major bills are already decided by the communist party in advance of that being said how important is this body and what can we learn from this gathering well the national people's congress is very important because it's one of the few ways we have of working out what's on the mind of the chinese leadership what they're thinking about what directions they're looking out what their policies are going to be so with that we'll need every every bit of it
is poured over by china watchers to see particular at the moment on the economy but also in terms of diplomacy on tech and on trade but what direction china is heading we heard talking about those economic challenges cutting the growth target yet six percent growth is a number that a lot of other countries would be very happy with isn't it it is but china is coming from a lower base and it does become used to double digit growth figures for many years . and so i think people are concerned when when it does start to slip back like this. they'll be looking for indications about how the party is now going to try and get growth going again you know well one of the issues that has been weighing on china's economy is of course the trade dispute with the u.s. let's listen to what likud chung said on that front. we will continue to push for trade talks with the us china two years to the principles of mutually beneficial cooperation and when development and will continue to advocate
fair consultations to solve trade disputes we will earnestly carry out the promises we make and will resolutely protect our legitimate rights and interests. ok we will protect our rights and interests what do you take away from that statement well i think part of me thinks that they would have liked of out a trade deal already going into the national people's congress but i think a lot of the n.p.c. is aimed at the domestic audience they want to shore up stability they don't want to store economic growth to create instability in china so a lot of does is presenting an image of a strong china very much a domestic audience but also presenting an image of a strong china to the u.s. when it comes to further negotiations yet and agreement is so important to the chinese economy how close are we to an agreement there. the sense is that there could be in a agreement in the offing we have a meeting coming up with trump there's going to be a lot of political will to forge a deal as we saw last week with the north korea talks you know you can't always rely on these forecasts but i think the looking up the way both sides seem to be
talking we should be looking at a trade deal coming up very soon i also want to ask you about one other aspect of the chinese economy saw that its china's increasing its defense budget by seven point five percent why is that and what signal does that send well it's slightly lower than it has been in some of the recent years but still quite a significant increase and also there's a lot of defense spending that isn't reflected in the defense budget china again it feeds into this narrative of china being a strong power for a domestic audience internationally it's a signal to china's neighbors perhaps that in the in the areas where there are territorial disputes it's going to have a strong navy for example and then there's also going to be internal spending on defense and security all right clifford could in looking at the annual meeting of the countries the national people's congress for us thank you so much for joining us in studio with your analysis. now to some other stories making news around the

this raises hopes that the condition could be one day cured this case comes ten years after a first hiv patient timothy ray brown appeared to be cured of the infection after a blood stem cell transplant. french president is calling on european voters to reject nationalism and support a stronger european union and a letter published in newspapers in all twenty eight countries today mccaw urges e.u. citizens to use their votes in upcoming european parliamentary elections to protect and strengthen europe and to reject euro skeptic parties marco also laid out several reform proposals including a new e.u. white agency to protect democracy a ban on foreign funding for political parties and to harmonize evil laws on hate speech on the internet. let's get more on this story with our correspondents beyond record is in brussels and you're in berlin france from the politics good to see you
both but let's start with you there in brussels now mccall's letter is addressed directly to the citizens of europe why are we seeing this letter from. i think mr merkel is kicking off his election campaign for the european elections which will take place in the end of may and he's addressing the people directly and this is a good p.r. stunt if you wish if you want to say so in twenty eight countries cemetaries the so he will dominate the european debate for two or three days at least in the european circles i'm not sure if he can reach everybody because not everybody is reading newspapers anymore in europe and i'm not sure he can reach the protests as the yellowest in france which are very angry with the president so he's speaking to the people what about his european partners do you think you discussed this letter with other european leaders beforehand and how do you think they're going to react. i
think they knew there was something coming but he didn't discuss the details of this plan because the mcallen learned that if you want to change something in europe you have to move and you cannot wait for everybody but this is no surprise and no real surprise in the things he's proposing and some reactions already from the finnish prime minister and the budge and prime in this as in tweeds they say they brought the support what marco is asking for right hands let's come to you now you're tracking this story here in berlin has there been any reaction from the politicians here. yes there has a government spokesman speaking for angela merkel's government has said that the government welcomes robust discussion about the road of the european union ahead of these european elections at the end of may they've also been reactions from various other political parties welcoming this discussion welcoming the proposals that micro has put forward the only negative reaction not surprisingly has come from the
far right wing party in germany the alternative for germany which has said that if any of these ideas of micro were to be put into effect it would in fact make the european union european union worse than it is already but that's no surprise from the euro skeptic party that's look at one of those ideas because calling for europe wide pay guarantees and social benefits do you think the german government would like is likely to be on board with that proposal. well here in germany there has been a discussion about a minimum wage as well which has been proposed which has been in fact passed by the government both the conservatives and the social democrats in this government magine there might be quite some sympathy for this expanding minimum wage proposal across europe. especially i think on the left in the german in the german political spectrum but what micro obviously seems to be saying is that he is trying to reach voters in europe across the political spectrum shut trying to show them that there
is some benefit from being within the european union and that these benefits can be very concrete in terms of things such as the minimum wage which according to micron would have to be adjusted to each particular country so it wouldn't be exactly the same thing about an equivalent figure depending on the purchasing power in the various countries there and one message that really comes across in this letter is as fighting for a stronger european union and the cost per proposing to combat euro skepticism with another european agency but isn't that exactly what critics accuse the e.u. of too much bureaucracy. or that his crew have caused him on that and it's not only one agency it's actually a righty of new agencies and institutions in this lead and micro ones that all until the end of the year it should end up in a huge european convention he wants to call for of course you know this is
unrealistic and this will not happen but you have proved cations all the time from the right wing populist now this is a provocation from a liberal polluted so this was stir up the debate in the end this might be quite good for europe all right our corresponds band regular to in brussels and hans brandt in berlin thank you both. you're watching news still to come breaking the law we need the ugandan child who hopes that breakdancing will get them as big break in life and help them to help out. but first venezuela's opposition leader has arrived back in the country defying president nicolas my little stretch to have him arrested for breaking a travel ban thousands took to the streets across the country in response to why those call for nationwide rallies to increase the pressure on president to step down i these back in the crowds of caracas airport treat him like
a rock star i want to return to venezuela despite a travel ban imposed by the government he might be arrested at any moment but after touching down he was defiant i we're here to serve in a swale and i we're here to serve our people and to fight for our cause i love you venezuela i love you i'm going to be the earlier garrido had called on venezuelans to take to the streets and they responded in massive numbers like here in caracas where thousands came out for a change in leadership and against president nicolas maduro you know what i mean did not want anything we want things to change and get better. we don't want them to arrest why do. this dictatorship is teetering and they don't have what it takes to keep going if they try to stick him in prison that seem at them but it's always a. this abusive government can only news arresting by doing would be
a huge mistake because i don't but i don't but i in caracas quite know called for more protests to increase the pressure on me to step down. yet. on saturday will continue in the streets all of venezuela will return to the streets were decided and determined to mobilize in search of their freedom we will not rest one second. until freedom is achieved. without ideas. on sunday he warned manure oh if the government takes him into custody it would be a grave mistake perhaps the last. let's get more on the story was going to my hold is the deputy director of the german institute for international and security fairs and an expert in latin american politics now one why though was as we saw there able to return home to venezuela yesterday seen by many as really a direct challenge to nicolas motherhood oh and his government why wasn't quite
though arrested the political costs for mobile durable to have being quite high public. his moment of returning of quite a door and especially the international community have been quite explicit in. making clear the consequences for this well i would be very high so much. for. a way out of this is very challenging was it to asia and didn't act at all leaving the space open to his followers so where does this all leave why though he left the country visited latin american allies what did he gain from those visits did it strengthen his position. that's a very critical point because at the end of the day we are now in the same situation as the twentieth of january when he declared himself president because we see that he is legitimate duro is in power and so he made his tour around the
letter in america in order to collect a recall commission in order to collect compromises for help in humanitarian issues and maybe to freeze financial resources of the venezuelan state owned enterprises in these countries but the challenge is how to get move. power balance in venezuela itself we saw why though as we said coming home to these rallies across the country he's calling for new protests this week he and his supporters as you said are not backing down how do you think we're going to see motherhood will react to a continuing of the situation my impression is is playing for time and he's seen quite well the way the world has a major problem in maintaining high the mobilization of his followers to get growth larger assemblies two times each week and that the end of the day this will ization
it will come down and in some way this inflate the power of god or and is a legitimate basis and people are going to you said it yourself we have a president or we have the self-proclaimed president won by bill and their supporters on both sides where is this headed what could actually break this deadlock. what we have no is the confrontation of these two people and we have as well a confrontation over very maximalist positions. as for the resentment of. doesn't recall to. do so but we need to in order to better as a situation of the people in the street is a new idea is a new intention for dialogue and new proposals how to get. on in order to order the transition in this country and permit the people to but as the situation in everyday life i can tell my hope from the german institute for international and
security affairs thank you so much. champions league football now it's down to the return legs of the round of sixteen europe's top clubs aiming for a spot in the quarterfinals of the top tournament here in europe aren't so easy for the sports as with us our so there are still a few german teams and us let's talk about tonight dortmund facing elimination set up this game for us that's right well dortmund first of all is struggling in the bundesliga i mean they had a nice nine point lead ahead of byron munich that were always chasing them and now they've squandered that league byron munich is tied with them on points at fifty four and only technically is in the league is in the lead rather thanks to goal difference so there's that and then they had that disastrous first leg. best of sixteen champions league series game against tottenham hotspur in london they lost three nil it was a big problem for them and that's going into this game i mean they're up against the wall and they also are going to be up against harry kane and he's back in the
spurs squad and he's a goal scoring machine and last year he also scored a goal in dortmund in a group game and they won that game two spurs did in dortmund so he's got experience there and in fact let's take a closer look now at how the two teams match up. dortmund are about to face their toughest test and what has been an increasingly dramatic and difficult season if they're to come through their champions league tie with tottenham they'll need big performances from every one of their star players. foremost among them marco royce who's returning from injury. it's really important that we believe in ourselves we need a top performance we have to be a best. and so on top of that i get a gold and of course it's going to be very difficult for the whole team and everyone around us to laze we can do it and we have to keep faith. tottenham have
their own returning star in striker harry kane spurs managed to defeat dortmund three nil in the first leg without the england international they'll be even more deadly with him back in the squad tottenham know they're in control now but they won't be sitting back on defense. we could know seeing in the first little two for good. to start of the game you know that it would. we must to be able to see if we must to to fight for a living in dortmund then we'll have to be at their best if their defense can shut out tottenham and their attack can produce goals and they could still be in with a chance. are you said in with a chance there in your report but let's be honest i need a miracle here can make that one well they've done it before you know in two thousand and thirteen that season when they actually went to the final of the champions league they were losing in the second leg in the quarter finals against
the spanish side mollica two to one and in the dying seconds of injury time they scored two goals won the leg three to advance forward and like i said made it all the way to the final of the champions league i wouldn't discount them and i mean the crowd there is also very supportive there it's an incredible crowd in dortmund if you've ever seen a home game there and and also the spurs coach himself mauricio pochettino said that there's an advantage that dortmund has they played their last league game on friday night and he and his side played a gruelling game against arsenal on saturday that means that it had an extra day of recovery of rest and recovery and he said in fact that that could well be a problem for his team. who put on the same. game if you know what. we need to find the fitting way to put it better the game. who blew through the in the group to go to. but that's not. what
we are going to bring movie the same will more than. the room but if you use no reason to write aren't going to be a good match up what about the other game tonight of the defending champion the champs that's right to rail madrid having won it three times in a row but they're not playing well generally i mean right now they're struggling in the league they're twelve points behind league leaders barcelona you can pretty well forget that they're going to take the championship they've been knocked out of the spanish the cup the copa del rey and the champions league is all that's left for them and in fact i'm very impressed with this stuff if you saw the first leg in amsterdam where they lost two to one at home yet they had scores of chances to they had lots of chances to score against real madrid and you know i think they're good for a surprise i wouldn't be too confident if i were real madrid right now anything can happen all right art so see from for thank you. now a hung jury in court has approved the extradition of the so-called football league's whistleblower pinto that's according to the a.f.p.
