in russia's president vladimir putin who greeted him very warmly let's just see this. so saudi crown prince finding at least one i lie at the g. twenty summit. let's take you live to wayne as areason speak to al-jazeera is alan fischer i mean in the lead up to this summit out and there's been a lot of speculation about how world leaders would indeed trees have been sound man when he arrived in argentina. exactly right the talk was there going to be a meeting between him and donald trump donald trump being one of the crown prince's biggest international supporters we were told that that was off the table that don't trump certainly didn't have time when they said joe let's be honest don't trump wants to meet the saudi crown prince donald trump will meet the saudi crown prince there will be a gap in the shadow created tello that to happen so the fact that donald trump isn't meeting him here is significant there were those who said that they were going to meet him and then canceled those plans among them but president did go
ahead with the diplomatic niceties of greeting mohammed bin salman is the arrived at the g twenty as you would expect him to do we know that prime minister modi of india met the saudi crown prince of these residents here in argentina on thursday but then it was all about who is going to shake his hand who is going to talk to him when the g. twenty actually gets under way we'll present my craw certainly had a quick brief meeting with them according to sources from the palace he said that he mentioned the murder of jamal khashoggi he also talked about the war in yemen we know that president putin shook his hand he has not criticized mohammed bin some of the saudi government any point at all he is aware that there is the possibility of a fracture in saudi u.s. relations and wants to position himself a way that he can actually take advantage of that also he hasn't criticized mohamed been selman even though there are numerous reports which say he ordered the killing of one of his own citizens on foreign soil vladimir putin hasn't said anything at
all about that it was interesting though when it came to the family photo as the leaders all gathered together the crime prince was awkwardly standing at the right no one came over to talk to him until the person who was standing next to him took up his place and that was the president of the enter american investment bank not exactly a household name and while the crown prince was very much to the right of the picture on the left. of the picture of the far left of the picture was president of talkie these things don't happen by accident these are stage managed those positions were picked to keep the two men very far apart and once the picture was done everyone seemed to wander off or mohammed bin salman awkwardly it wandered off as well no there is no doubt that when the leaders of together in a room there will be high and chicks there will be short conversations that's just the nature of the g twenty but certainly that was a very awkward moment when they gathered together for the g.
twenty family for two as it's called or i shall official live there in buenos aires appreciate it allan thank you the united states canada and mexico have signed a new north american trade deal at the g. twenty summit donald trump a spend more than a year pressuring canada and mexico into rewriting the original nafta deal saying that was a job killer for u.s. workers so you would prevent gives the u.s. special access to canada's dairy markets and allows extra imports of canadian cocks and officers can be held at joins us live now again from wainer cyrus so we've already got this new trade agreements between the u.s. and mexico and canada the other big trade agreement or rather trade war really as it is right now is of course between the u.s. and china isn't it. yeah and it's escalating or has the potential to ask the late unless the two sides can find some sort of agreement now
there is some a cautious optimism but at the same time felicity there's a lot that has to change before then agreement can be struck between china's leader as well as the u.s. leader donald trump they are going to sit down and have a working dinner on saturday but the e.u. u.s. is very clear in its position it has the trump illustration has the backing of the u.s. congress for years it has been accusing truck china of predatory trade practices of dumping cheap chinese goods into the u.s. market intellectual property theft cyber attacks and unless that stops unless there's a promise from china to stop doing that there will be no agreement so don't trump has been very open about it as maybe they'll be a deal maybe there won't be but guess what happens if there's not a deal the tariffs against china will go even higher they will go up to twenty five percent in january and this is are some two hundred billion of chinese goods brought into the united states so there's a lot of stake a lot of incentive most both sides are saying there is
a possibility of the deal but the united states saying it's going to have to be some major concessions in order to end that agreement and speaking of trouble maybe doing some people may not be doing something he says he's canceled that meeting with vladimir putin the russians seem to have a different take. yeah they they have been sending out a couple of different press releases if you will from some of the sideline meetings that have been happening trying to make more of just casual passing and this is kind of what's going on with regard to the meeting between donald trump and lattimer putin which was counseled by the president donald trump that is on the way to a sorry he did it aboard air force one on twitter the reason he says this because russia has still not returned those three vessels that were seized over the weekend in that naval clash in ukraine and as well those twenty four sailors still detained
and so as a result donald trump says there will be no meeting no rush on the other hand is saying that there could be some sort of casual polish side well that would happen with almost any leader in the room so really trying to make more of what is nothing more than just a casual occurrence in fact the white house sent out a statement to the pool reporters here when it's horace trying to clarify this saying in fact that the reason this meeting is not happening is because of the issue in ukraine and this naval clash she also went on to say has nothing to do with what they are continuing to call the witch hunt and that is the probe into donald trump's ties with russia we've just had a bombshell revelation back in the united states that seems to link his personal attorney michael cohen and some statements he made in a plea agreement they're kind of indicating that donald trump did have plans to build trump tower or at least was investigating that in moscow at the time he was campaigning for president it's a clear line between russia and the u.s.
president and of course we know russia did meddle in the twenty six thousand u.s. election the white house trying to downplay that in its latest statement we should also point out in that family photo that just took place here in buenos sorry donald trump did not in any way meet with the russian president vladimir putin or even glance of his direction or was going to be interesting so mrs nick can believe thanks so much for the thank you. now ukraine has banned russian men between the ages of sixteen and sixteen from entering the country for a month the ukrainian president petro poroshenko says the bomb will help to stop the formation of what he describes as private armies ukraine says a working alongside moscow backed rebels in the border area ukraine impose martial law in a number of provinces for thirty days i was off to russia sees three ukrainian ships and twenty four sailors on sunday under simmons's in khaki live not far from
the russian border and has more than. tens of thousands of russian nationals are going to be affected by this move and certainly the economy will be affected as well petro poroshenko says the main reason is to stop russian forces from being gauging private companies to send men in here effectively to form private armies and he says this is what happened back in twenty fourteen after the ukrainian uprising when pro russian has caused so much trouble here in hockey even other places trying to force resistance against the new rule of ukraine now he says that this move will affect all men young men sixteen years of age right up until sixty years of age here in hockey if it's going to have a big effect there is a thirty percent russian ethnic parts of the population and many families will be affected to the to ing and fro ing across the border just to give you an example on
thursday seven hundred people across the border coming in and coming out that seven hundred settlers went men women and children however but the situation here is one where people are quite concerned because if russia had responded by doing the same thing and binding ukrainian nationals who would have a massive effect on so many people who are unemployed or very very low wages going into russia to find work so russia played a small cog by not responding. to serious for a challenge joins us live from moscow right now say rory give us some more details about what's happening with these new border restrictions. well yeah i mean as andrew was just saying there in his reports it's basically this is a move by petro poroshenko administration that is going to have ramifications
for many ordinary people on either side of the russia ukraine border russia's unusual perspective when it comes to policies that he thinks are anti russian and he has to do something reciprocal back they call it the whole principle of reciprocity and so i think all eyes are basically on russia after this news broke to see whether there would be any kind of council move from the ministry of foreign affairs here anything that would say you know restrict the access of ukrainians of military age to russia. this is part of the worlds where there are families you have people on both sides of the border. but the russians seem to not be going down that route i think they are quite happy for petro poroshenko to look like he's overreacting in this situation they are playing down the whole straits crisis
saying that it was just a border incident really and so when asked about what they would do in return earlier in the day and there is a car over the spokes person for the ministry of foreign affairs seem to position russia as the kind of adult in the room here and try to portray what is going on in ukraine as a kind of collective freakouts from the portion of ministration we can listen to him or is it harder now. yeah talking about retaliation is just terrifying because if anyone tries to retaliate to what's happening in kiev now it could lead to a crazy situation if we're talking about this on a national scale then quite simply it could lead to a meltdown but also hearing new story that those captured ukrainian sailors have now been moved to moscow from the crimea region
yeah earlier in the day someone from the authorities in crimea was saying that they didn't have them anymore they had they had left the peninsula she didn't know where they gone sushi's or that was the f s b s jurisdiction the f.s.b. is the russian federal security service and what we know now is that they have been moved to look for to a prison and the force of it is a pretty notorious place in moscow it is an old jail that in stalinist times was run by the n.k.v.d. the stalin secret police it was used as a torture center then it passes than of the k.g.b. that was the successor to the n.k.v.d. it is now run by the ministry of justice but it still has close ties to the russian security services and from what we understand twenty one of the sailors are now being held there in quarantine the international red cross has been talking to
russia about whether it can actually get into this facility and visit these men there are three that are at the moment unaccounted for we suspect that those are probably the three who were injured and reports of the moments are that they are being held in a prison hospital why are they being moved to moscow where we are being told at the moment but the working assumption i think has to be that moscow is ultimately where these men are going to stand trial jury thank you. still ahead on the program process against fuel price protests in kenya faso walk but has to do with the spread of groups across the so how. does if things went tough enough for the central american a sign of seek his way saying at the u.s. border to wrench will rain brings new problems.
