the tournament hosts a look back on a big night in paris a look forward at what's to come on day to day. i'm rebecca routers welcome to the program the united states and mexico have reached an 11th hour deal to crack down on migration from central america earlier the white house threatened to slap tariffs on mexico if it failed to stop record numbers of migrants from traveling through the country to the u.s. border but the deal appears to fall short of a key u.s. demands that mexico except a designation of safe 3rd country that would have forced it to permanently take in it most central american asylum seekers. he's known for the art of the deal but returning to the white softer his trip to europe u.s. president donald trump was uncharacteristically tight lipped about how talks were
going. after 3 days the tower of strength had threatened were not indefinitely suspended and you implicated people crossing into the u.s. to seek asylum will be rapidly returned to mexico while their applications for asylum are processed in turn with mexico will allow these individuals to enter for humanitarian reasons in compliance with its international obligations that must be malice in mexico we take on the president it is to. the peace enforcement to curb it with our make ratio that is going mental to its national guard mexico even though you repeated soudan border. on the border with guatemala checks are being stepped up while these measures were enough to avoid the tariffs the details are not yet finalized the united states and mexico have agreed to continue their
discussions and nine's the final conditions in the next 90 days. for more on the story i'm joined by louie rose there she's from a research fellow at the gate institute for latin american studies lisa thanks so much for coming in so the dispute between the u.s. and mexico seems to be settled down for now where does this leave the 2 countries. this leaves the 2 countries i would say not in a better position than they were 2 weeks ago when these trade threat started. the 2 countries have managed in a way to save face but it's really not in a better position mexico has avoided the shame of accepting to become a 3rd safe country and has also managed to squeeze seeing its plan for a new interim growth development plan for central america with no commitment to from the u.s. to the amount of money that the u.s. is ready to invest and the u.s. has managed to press mexico to enforce and militarized the southern border.
you know not no better off than they were about 2 weeks ago but what options does mexico have to address this issue and try and not really reaganite these tensions between the 2 countries the options i would say in the short term are very clear it has to apply the measures that it has promised you with regard to the deployment of the national guard but in the mid term. i think that the options are to establish alliances with other actors to try to be less dependent on the u.s. economy so that these threats are less harmful for mexico in the future and under that deal the mexico has agreed to deploy an extra $6000.00 troops to its border with quite a model of what effect would that have on the migration issue and the flow of migrants one has to consider that the economy so mexico in the south and guatemala are quite well integrated to a degree that got to modern workers come over to mexico to work there so this is
1st of all going to make life very difficult for those people who depend on them transport or livelihood and i don't think that it's going to stop the flow of migrants in the long term because the problems that cause migration in the northern triangle of central america are not yet addressed that's mexico's plan but we will see if it gets implemented yeah well. to pick up on that you know what are the problems that are driving people to migrate through through mexico into the us the problems are connected to political instability to very corrupt governments in the us in guatemala. to instability in to widespread criminality and violence that threatens young boys and young men and pushes them to any great as the only way to save their lives so very deep seated problems and those without solving those problems they're not going away. these issues likely to be resolved by these measures that mexico has put again no absolutely not it will only make migration more difficult to do increase the cost of migration it will increase the cost of
the smuggling industry of migrants if you doesn't address the root causes of migration that are very connected to political and economic issues being central america it's not going to stop migration in the long term louisa pedro's a research fellow at the gate institute for latin american studies here in germany thank you very much thank you now to some of the other stories making news around the world the u.n. says the number of venezuelan refugees is now reached a few 1000000 it's one of latin america's worst ever humanitarian emergencies more and more people have been fleeing the socialist country with little sign of a solution to its political and economic crisis. in budapest rescuers are preparing to try and raise a sightseeing boat that sank in the danube last week 9 people are still missing after the vessel collided with a cruise ship 19 people are already confirmed dead in the disaster.

who must speak on behalf of these 3 and from these a strong political message from these 3 from the european countries france germany and. great britain to tehran in that can be important and that will be an important signal to try and see what can be done to save the euro agreement the u.s. has impose new sanctions on iran yesterday and iran is refusing to talk to the u.s. could germany b.m.a. to. what we're seeing right now is that there are various countries various heads of state coming to the fore can be messengers messages back and forth between tehran and washington and we are seeing prime minister abbott from the road traveling to europe on next week as well and i think the entirety of the interlocutors may help to deescalate the situation to some extent so i think it will not be just on the shoulders to mediate here but it will be on a lot of people who will step in and try to deescalate the situation right the u.s.
has stationed warships in the arabian sea to detail what they call iran's aggressive behavior what's at stake here. i guess a lot is it sticky i mean we can everybody who who ever it starts thinking about what the implications of a armed conflict or even a small incident between the iranian and american troops in the region would be and what escalation potential the myth that neon fall everyone knows that this has to be prevented met him this is why we have seen so many different officials from different countries both in the region but also but also outside the middle eastern region trying to make sure that there are some messages sent back and forth between tehran and washington to try to deescalate and to prevent at least in the 1st some sort of war military action and in the longer run try to prevent on the ground or pave the way for direct talks between the 2 middle east experts at the time by
