many more seriously injured after a heavily armed troops opened fire on demonstrators and so don witnesses say the violence began when troops tried to break up a protest outside the military headquarters in the capital khartoum. protest leaders so called for a general strike a nationwide civil disobedience until the joints are overthrown new barricades have been put up in towns and cities across and on the ruling joins us they will need an invented a will send an invitation to the protesters to resume negotiations. donald trump is in britain for a 3 day state visit in his 1st official engagement the u.s. president and his wife melania attended a ceremony hosted by queen elizabeth the 2nd and other members of the royal family a buckingham palace. so strong towards the u.k. back in washington talks are going on between u.s. and mexican diplomats to resolve a dispute over migration that prompted the prime. event to threaten tariffs it's unclear what mexico can do to satisfy trump's demands to stop people crossing
1:06 am
illegally and some within his own republican party have warned tariffs on mexican goods will hurt u.s. consumers and the economy i can is joining us from washington d.c. in the mexican president seems to be optimistic that some sort of agreement can be read says that the sentiment that's shared in washington or certainly that sentiment is among his delegation that he sent here and it's a very powerful delegation indeed they had an early morning news conference before beginning meetings that will last over the next few days present the foreign minister the agriculture minister the finance minister and their deputies along with the ambassador so certainly mexico throwing a very heavy weight delegation into talk to their u.s. counterparts over the next few days they warn against the consequences of these tariffs being introduced saying it would be disastrous not just for mexico but also would have a massive economic impact on the u.s.

1:08 am
some blowback from his own republican party for example chuck grassley a very important senate on the finance committee who's a very strong supporter of president trump has been very vocal in rejecting these tariffs as has another more of republican senators so certainly there is resistance in congress from republicans as well as widespread resistance from democrats the key point here though is criticism that president trump has confused the idea of trade negotiations which had been going on and everybody thought had been concluded along with immigration his spokesman contends that the issue of introducing terror of stetsons have anything to do with trade it has everything to do with preventing ongoing immigration the mexican delegation insisting that of course tariffs are all about trade and asking how they've already got an agreement that appeared to be agreed agreed on and now it's being undercut by this new unilateral terror of being

minister insists the worst is over the government to promise to inject billions of dollars into state banks and support turkish exports. turkey's main focus now is on reforming the economy in order to achieve the goal of a big and strong turkey it's necessary to introduce structural change. the impact of the economic downturn could be seen on istanbul skyline it's a city of stalled building sites for the past 16 years present turn construction into a vehicle of growth new developments have gone after breakneck speed but with the lira falling the cost of importing raw materials and servicing foreign loans have sought last year the u.s. double tariffs on turkish steel and there are many and amid worsening relations for $2.00 countries over the odds over an increasing number of issues including turkey's growing ties with russia and plans to buy

a russian missile defense system president said the u.s. tariffs were a big obstacle to turkish trade rising prices were a major election issue for many turks the ruling party's popularity for so long built around strong growth and improved living standards now depends on creating a road to recovery neve parker counting the cost now a turkey correspondent cynicus solo sat down with the former governor of the country's central bank scene and began by asking. where it all began to go wrong for the economy is in their. all in 2008 our g.d.p. per capita was above $8000.00 and it raised up to $12000.00 but today we are below the 2008 numbers the reason behind it is the chosen growth model you can't be a big economy with the skyscrapers you build in istanbul ankara or izmir but they can be your prestige projects turkish will never capitulate them all infrastructure
1:27 am
canal railway fast train projects must continue even with foreign subsidiary because these are the essential as of an economy however substantial part of foreign money received has been allocated to the construction sector that feed 750 different subsectors this created a boom in the economy but at the end your cash flow is in the local currency but your debt is in foreign exchange so we are stuck now turkey has had some long term economic issues such as over reliance on overseas money which require lots of money what can be done to mitigate this it's thought of. as our internal savings assured we need external savings while attracting these foreign savings to turkey a model doesn't prioritize industry sector that would enable you to supply to the international markets so i don't have. it rather prioritize as a construction sector which has foreign exchange input but national currency cash flows there was abundant liquidity for 12 years the economy instead of modernizing
1:28 am
our economy and focusing on manufacturing we concentrated on construction that would push for domestic demand but this model doesn't generate foreign exchange earnings while you need to pay in foreign currency this is the greatest challenge turkey is facing now or was the central bank right to prop up the currency ahead of the elections. and i would add is the price stability is an interim goal of the central bank the ultimate judy is the public the growth in it's fair distribution if the central bank doesn't do this and you impose differ responsibilities or if you restrain it's all 30 you can come up with a result this is the top problem turkey faces now. they really are or not that of the us our institutions are not able to perform their responsibilities and the reason for that is the in coordination in the economic decision making mechanism. and the temporary currency controls imposed this thing work and this in present add
1:29 am
on was right to impose those measures well on the south and alter not on the government told its citizens to sell their dollars and buy gold and then bring that gold and debit to banks following that they told people to avoid investing in foreign currency they auction foreign exchange bonds and bills all these contradict with each other if you can preserve the purchasing power and the credibility of your national currency which is your country's decency your people will and voluntarily go after foreign exchange. ken didn't jenna's in. the government doesn't respect the parliament decisions doesn't follow or internalize the central bank is given authority for liberal instruments liberal administration but the political authority intervenes it abuses of the trust and harms the perception and then people are not able to see ahead which stops long term investments also foreign investors stop coming for long term they come and give a short term shot. we've got it here i do think the turkish economy is under attack
1:30 am
by the speculators as the government and mainly presence at our market is. absolutely there are foreign powers but they were there yesterday and will be there tomorrow every country's a foreign power to another and there are conflicts of interest the government should maximize our national interests and take steps accordingly. you know to see their well since the istanbul gezi protests of 2013 each time we were cornered instead of taking this as a fact instead of an excuse and fail to make right decisions now we hear you've announced that as the 17th largest economy in the world you are a global player and then you accept the international rules then liberated the capital movements and your central bank in this game you'd like to play there is speculation. how do you go about fixing the economy and seconds. today our job is to follow token economy policies and build up the country's interest accordingly whatever it is as the opposition we and others say the finance

interest free minister the president's son in law should resign but this will not resolve the problem this is a systematic issue which was most. this system is paralyzed the decision making process in the economy if you monopolize the authority the person manages all. this we have to address the key trigger of the problem which is this new presidential system which is unique. turkey our institutions are now paralyzed we need to rebuild our system by introducing a rule based system in line with universal law separation of powers checks and balances otherwise i believe the current system will self terminate you know what was. wrong with russia do you think there's a deal to be done between the united states and turkey on ankara's decision to buy the russian s 400 inside and system. chill indices or it may i don't
1:32 am
see myself eligible to talk assertive in foreign politics but what i understand so far as 400 missiles did not comply with the pact turkey is in as 100 software detects nato defense systems as hostile or enemy so now they are discussing ways to adjust this is a diplomatic and military topic when our government says it is a done deal the turkish lira loses value when they say there may be another solution the lira gains back value to this topic oppresses the lira like when turkey arrested american pastor andrew bronson. if they want to do a favor to the turkish businessmen and industry they need to sort this problem out one way or another so the business men are able to see ahead and take risks they run the way our economy. if so what can do that to turkey or russia relations. understand the situation i believe the government is caught in the middle of 2 powers they're not as comfortable as they are seen from outside thorazine or.
