this is g.w. news live from berlin americal means trump the german chancellor goes to washington to survey the iran nuclear deal after talks at the white house anglo-american says the deal has slowed down iran's nuclear activities for recognizes it's not sufficient so what leverage does any says she have moving forward also coming up. the leaders of north and south korea are being praised for committing to peace at their historic summit but will this time be any different we'll get reaction from seoul. i will take
a look out one football club search for divine inspiration the hand of god in a recreate shot of the painting in the sistine chapel but this isn't a gym hall in argentina as the team wants to give kids some i don't think they can really look up to. a map because awesome welcome to the program if you get in washington where german chancellor angela merkel has held talks with u.s. president donald trump it was the second face to face meeting between the two and merkel's first trip to washington since being reelected she's trying to persuade trump to stay in a landmark nuclear deal with iran which she's threatened to pull out of it was just one issue where differences between them are proving difficult to bridge. as chancellor merkel met president trump at the white house the. focus was on style as
well as substance. after a frosty first meeting last spring in washington this time there were signs of a thaw no handshakes persist on this occasion and there were kind words from president trump that we have a really great relationship and we actually have had a great relationship right from the beginning but some people don't understand that but we understand it and that's what's important but very extraordinary woman and it's an honor to have you at the white house that people. but the cordial tone couldn't hide differences on the issues at hand trump has threatened to pull the u.s. out of the iran nuclear deal once to save it all but does this equipment is anything but perfect it will not solve all the problems of iran is one piece of the may say one building block that we can improve upon and be among all phone con on the issue of trade makola got no assurances that the trump would continue to exempt the e.u.
from steel and aluminum tariff states instead trump bemoaned the u.s. trade deficit with the european union has it's been unfair and i don't blame the chancellor and i don't blame germany i don't even blame the european union i blame the people that preceded me for allowing this to happen. there's no way we should have a trade deficit of one hundred fifty one billion dollars mean on nato spending trump revived an old grievance with europe and we're protecting europe and yet we pay by far more than anybody else and nato is wonderful but it helps europe more than it helps us and why are we paying the vast majority of the costs thank you very much everybody even though macos meeting with trump lasted only a few hours it followed a three day visit by french president and money will not com neither leader was able to get trump to change course on iran or trade it's a sign transatlantic ties could remain troubled. joining me to discuss this further
is d w political correspondent simon young simon perhaps a warmer meeting than last time but if we're looking at concrete results what was achieved in this meeting concrete results pretty thing i'm afraid you know is more about the atmospherics and the optics you know improving the relationship and they seem to have done that they've made it more normal looking than it has been of late with you know kisses on the cheek and demonstrative handshakes and warm words you know you had there we had a great relationship right from the start said trump and he talked about an amazing woman that's his way of speaking. to the medical for her part said you know the transatlantic relationship remains absolutely central for germany little bit more sort of conservative way of talking but she also praised donald trump for the movement that he helped to create for instance on the korea question so a lot of interesting things there but in terms of concrete policy trade iran.
i don't think we're seeing anything new and you know that the remains of a tough relationship of course with donald trump you mentioned trade need a mcconnell americal were able to pull out a promise from shaam on that tax exemption that's set to kick in on may first it's actually going to expire at. does the bloc have any kind of leverage here in this discussion well i mean there is there is some leverage because of course the there's the prospect of a trade war sort of the e.u. you saw it enough to get germany doesn't negotiate on trade maxes alone as the chancellor pointed out it's an e.u. question the you have raised the possibility of you know introducing tariffs own peanut butter and bourbon and things like that. but they don't really want to do that this was a last ditch your temporary bangle a magical to. bring president trump all to point out to him that you know the importance of free trade and america was saying that there really should be
a full trade agreement between the e.u. and the u.s. but that of course is something there's a loop been looted negotiators for many years and given that germany's exports particularly of automobiles to the u.s. are very key export and it's very difficult to see where the leverage really comes from the german side and other major issue on the table with of course their raw nuclear deal briefly if you can if you're going to similar position at the mercy of trump here what trump. is the one who's saying that he's going to pull out of that deal he doesn't think it goes far enough we did see a little bit of movement in the tongue from angela merkel she said more pressure needs to be put on iran to you know stop its negative influence in the region as she described it and she said that the regions very important for europe and that's what i think the deal should remain because that's the way to keep iran under pressure over its nuclear program and in other ways but if donald trump pulls out
and that's the split the clearest sign coming from the secretary of state as well today then you know there's nothing really that europe will germany can do did political correspondent simon young thank you absent the other stories making news around the world. a funeral of a top political leader of the who's the rebels has taken place in yemen sala alsa maad was the most senior leader to have been killed by the saudi led coalition since the war began three years ago another saudi airstrike on friday two more than three rebels were reported to be killed along with dozens of fighters. a former policeman charged with a string of rapes and murders across california has made his first appearance in court he was arraigned in sacramento on two of the eight murder counts against him the seventy two year old was arrested this week after a decades long manhunt due to information from a genealogy website. alfie avon's the terminally ill british toddler at the

a new era of peace in the peninsula. the leaders signed a historic declaration regimes to in the two countries longstanding combs would keep include. a plan to convert the cease fire into a formal treaty an agreement to pursue the denuclearization of the korean peninsula reuniting families separated by the war and the follow up summit in the north capital pyongyang this autumn. in south korea reaction to the summit was mixed community and it would be great if reunification were possible but if not at least i hope that by declaring an end to the korean war we can live in peace. again i think that for elderly people like us who experienced the korean war it is
hard to trust north korea because of its past behavior can we really trust them it would be great if we could see what is the one thought. in the north the state controlled media was upbeat one on one north and south korea confirmed the common goal of realizing a nuclear free korean peninsula through complete denuclearize ation. but despite the groundbreaking summit a history of failed peace attempts has some critics wary of the north's commitment many wonder whether the summit like the tree the two leaders planted will bear fruit now this wasn't the first summit meeting between the leaders of north and south korea earlier i asked the w correspondent philip belsky in seoul if there was a sense that this time was truly different. well if you talk about concrete measures the whole picture gets much more that the whole situation gets much much more complicated so many experts warn against to be to be too optimistic and that's
because still so many open questions obviously it's one thing to agree on the long term goal for instance offer denuclearization off the korean peninsula and it's something completely different than to agree on concrete steps how to achieve this goal. and as we know that the devil sometimes or most of the time is in the details and also not everything is controlled by the north and south korea a lot will depend on the outcome of the summit between kim jong un and donald trump . correspondent philip belsky reporting from seoul moving on to bundesliga soccer in the friday night game hoffenheim can thank andre kara matches masterclass patrick for keeping their champions league dreams alive with a three one win against hanover the croatian began with the simplest of happened in
