close to. life and death with the furor starts july twenty first on g.w. . this is the w.'s line from donald trump makes a spectacular turnaround on his helsinki something three mocks facing a barrage of criticism he now says russia did meddle in the u.s. election but to no effect bill so says he misspoke when he said he saw no reason why russia would interfere and that he meant to say because it will bring a reaction from washington. also on the program remembering
a political icon in his highest profile speech since leaving the white house u.s. president barack obama delivers a tribute to the late south african president nelson mandela on the eve of what would have been his one hundredth birthday. in japan and the european union synanon free trade deal covering a third of the global economy more than six hundred million people. i'm filled gal welcome to the program u.s. president donald trump has made an about face on remarks he made as a summit with russia's vladimir putin speaking at a cabinet meeting he now says that he accepts russia did mettle in the u.s. election and went on to say that he misspoke yesterday when he said he saw no reason for russia to interfere. yes that our intelligence community is
conclusion that russia is meddling in the two thousand and sixteen election took place pretty other people also. a lot of people out there there was no collusion at all. we're clear about there was no collusion let's get more from did abuse a washington bureau chief an example of welcome alexander this is not a president known for backing down so what has brought this about. i think it was the harsh criticism the president has been facing since to see it with blood in the poutine criticism most notably within his own republican party with republican lawmakers describing what they saw in housing key areas seeing disgraceful and shameful and with republican leaders in congress
trying to distance themselves from this president and tromso all of this on t.v. we know that he likes to look good on t.v. we know that he seems to be obsessed with optics and this is actually not the first time that he backed down it was the case when he's administration implemented its policy of separating migrants kids from their of parents at the mexican border and and after harsh criticism from within the republican party on this the president change this policy so let's hear more from the statement that was issued here is on claims of russian interference in the twenty six state election. it should have been obvious i thought it would be obvious but i would like to play it just in case it wasn't in a few sentences in my remarks i said the word would instead of would.
should have been i don't see any reason why i would or why it would be russian so. just to repeat the word would in sort of order. and i thought it would be maybe a little bit unclear on the transcript or in the actual video. should have been and i don't see any reason why it wouldn't be russian. ok so now i would hope that's how all the president's critics reacting to this. i don't think that he's going to convinced his fiercest critics because they are not buying this especially his explanation that their reason for this misunderstanding was he nice use double negative but it will be crucial how the republican party is going to react whenever they would like to have full
confrontation with this president or not i would assume there are not interested in that because they are facing a very difficult mid-term election in november and therefore they would like to avoid and they think that would mean that they are risking a majority in congress. face a lot of criticism for the helsinki summit in the first place he faced criticism for the way he performs yesterday he's going to get more for doing this about face is this a tool damaging to. yes i think so i think that the damage has been done and i think that this president seems to have lost his credibility a swell among many a lawmakers here in the united states because he tends not to tell the truth he tends to use lies to present his policies and therefore it is
so difficult to believe and to think that he is credible and to believe what he's saying who took in two thousand joining us from norman in washington. former u.s. president barack obama has been paying tribute to nelson mandela on this santina of the former south african leaders birth in his most high profile speech since leaving office mr obama used the will nelson mandela let to urge people around the world to emulate the apartheid figurehead despite an even progress in south africa itself. most blacks in south africa live in townships like this one. a fish see a letter is hoping that barack obama's visit here will show the world that south africa is still a developing country that feeling of yes we can it was like. everybody
to gather you can do use the same applies to nelson one day was. around ten thousand people listened to obama's speech in a stadium and johannesburg. the tickets were free affairs managed to get one fellow came to embody the universal aspirations of this possessed people all around the world their hopes for a better life. and perhaps shared by many here a fair says obama is a man after his own heart especially when he speaks about dashed hopes. it is a plain fact that racial discrimination still exists in both the united states and south africa that the accumulated disadvantages of years of institutionalized oppression they've created yawning disparities of face and that says has inequality has to be eliminated once and for all he hopes that obama uses his political clout
to help south africa achieve that the. it's good move from a journalist a third of the vets he's an associate at is a business insider south africa and joins us from johannesburg welcome to day to talk us through some of mr obama's key points. it was an interesting speech the superior rousing speech of time's times was by stoke city but i think one thing that stood out for us as of africans is how the bomber was welcomed the this child to yes yes he can south african of course has to do it straight to praise them cyril also we have this expects that we call the use of this would give change coming in very very minister of the early days of president barack obama is to in the united states and south african seem to be relating to him and that seems weak we see him as an inspirational figure in a lot of what he said it's home with south africans today. and there were lots of
not so veiled references to donald trump. indeed they were sometimes it was hard to tell whether obama was talking about south africa or a box the united states we have many of the same problems the issues of nationalism which seem to be resurgent issues of xenophobia that he spoke quite serious issues of fake news and politicians soupy making things up he spoke about social tools such as twitter once seen as a force for good now apparently increasingly dividing us you know again these are issues as different as our two countries are these really are issues that have to cross but the united states and south africa it's a good talking to thanks for joining us for the vet from a business insider south africa. now to some of the other stories making news around the world very developed have some people killed on flight m.h. seventy plus down the ukraine have been marking the disastrous fourth anniversary
during a ceremony in the netherlands each relative read out the names and ages of the deceased family and of those two hundred ninety eight people who were killed when the plane was shot down by a russian made missile international investigators have claimed pro russian rebels . and the european court of human rights has condemned the treatment of a russian punk band pussy riot and censored protests against president putin in twenty twelve a band members were sentenced to two years in prison for their protest in a moscow theater a judge ordered the sentence was too harsh and ordered russia to pay nearly fifty thousand euros in damages. a migrant aid group has accused the libyan coast guard of abandoning women and children at sea and the foundering and the spanish group open arms says it recovered one survivor plus a dead mother and child amid the remains of a destroyed migrant birds the group says the trio were left to fend for themselves
after the coast guard scupper their vessel and that and they then and they refused to board and they've been ship. this woman survived. for companions another woman and a child rescued us from the aid organization open arms came too late they had to open arms accuses the libyan coast guard of leaving all three behind to die. the libyan coast guard did not know how to manage an emergency situation i arrived two days late abandoned two women in a child in the remains of a vessel that they themselves destroyed most of the story here. the libyan coast guard in turn says intercept at the boat with one hundred fifty eight migrants at sea and took those on board to a refugee camp in combs. open arms is a spanish angio it says this tragedy is the result of a new crackdown by european countries like italy and malta stopping rescue boats
from bringing migrants ashore. no. less than a month ago another rescue ship was forced to remain at sea for two weeks after being refused entry to italy. and that country's hardline interior minister tales of any says the ports are close to n.g.o.s because they ate human trafficking he wants to send migrants back to the ports they came from like libya and has offered to financial help. we were. forced to return to government will support the need to protect the external borders south of libya because libya i mean clearly alone cannot sustain the economic and social costs of this immigration images. and geos say putting the lives of migrants in the hands of the north african countries will mean more deaths like least. this is the direct consequence of not allowing n.g.o.s which rescue lives in
the mediterranean to work their government this is the consequence. of this he ripped once the flow of migrants to its shores to stop the people desperate to make a new life on the continent continue to risk their lives crossing the mediterranean . when well the united nations migration agency says almost fifty one thousand lines of cross the mediterranean to europe so far this year as less than half the number who made that journey join the same period last year while the numbers are down plenty of people still dream of a new life in europe as the w.'s father shah reports from tunisia many people who fail to make the crossing once determined to try again but for others there's no second chance. hardly anyone visits this place on the tunisian coast on their descent here are do remain so women children and young men they drowned in the mediterranean chasing an uncertain dream
a dream off life in europe their stories lie buried with them in these makeshift graves no names no identities no headlines across from the sea over there in europe the focus has shifted from whole to how migrants do or how to keep migrants here. he wants to give them dignity shamsuddin is a fisherman here near to tourist hot spot of such as this he has buried the remains of three hundred people to stop the crossings europe has proposed the creation of so-called disembarkation platforms in north africa they are migrants would be able to apply for asylum. isn't impressed. with tim's this europe doesn't care about these people whether they're alive or dead building reception centers isn't a solution instead europe should give people the wealth that was stolen from them. to. a beach near to cemetery this is where fisherman discovered
a washed up bodies. to find them before the local children to i'm on my way to a nearby migrant center where some of those rescued find temporary refuge there i meet the desha from the democratic republic of congo four months she was a sex slave in libya she tells me. when they discovered i was pregnant now let me go. i don't want to stay here in this i want to go to europe. tunisia has no functioning asylum system and it has to not only deal with migrants passing through but also with the increasing numbers of its own youth who dream of a brighter future these young men died trying to reach italy wooden seven thousand tunisians try to cross the mediterranean last year while i was one of them he
invites me to his home to share his story. and certain of them have. no hope here. nor alive it's all the same we don't have any jobs or future nothing in this country kills our dream that's why i want to escape. the well survive several boat accidents in the mediterranean but he's undeterred he wants to try again. if i stay here in tunisia i have zero hope. in europe at least have a chance to hit europe doesn't want to take migrants like well so who exactly is responsible for those rescue at sea. we have to stop treaty migrants like hostages and using them as political leverage we have to stop treating them as a tool with which to get money from europe and we have to be humane with them and
guarantee them no rights or freedom of movement because. tunisia's government has repeatedly said it does not want to be the gate keeper for migrants trying to reach europe caught in limbo thousand see trying to lock on the mediterranean as the only option despite the dangers. business news for britannia winter now we're looking at a two regions who have looked at protectionism and said oh no thank you yeah they said no thank you very clearly is a clear statement as it's a massive deal covering nearly a third of the world's economy the european union and japan signed a new trade pact to unite around six hundred million people across both markets and the so-called cause for cheese deal is how it happened. a grand fanfare for an historic agreement. as the e.u. and japan signed the world's largest ever trade deal in tokyo. to do sitting with the you you can only part of his agreement is
a landmark moment for globe with the if we used together economy is that the cone for the third of the world's g.d.p. and whom over six hundred million. talks got off to a difficult start and took a full four years but as u.s. president donald trump ratcheted up the protectionist rhetoric over the last one and a half years the negotiators set about sealing the deal in double quick time. money again they. are of currently rising concerns about protectionism globally. within this context i believe it is extremely meaningful that japan and the e.u. are sending a message to the world about the importance of free and fair trade it off or more likely and enough. japanese automobiles currently face ten percent e.u. import tariffs they will now be completely done away with for the europeans the
