dollars of chinese imports beijing says it will take necessary countermeasures but mr trump says there's no rush to strike a deal. and polite handshake and the u.s. and chinese delegations parted ways talks in washington ended without agreement after president trump upped the ante in the escalating dispute over trade trampas bullish on a favorable outcome no need to rush he tweeted after slapping a twenty five percent tariff on a further two hundred billion dollars in imports a total of two hundred fifty billion dollars worth of chinese goods have now been hit the new tariff is a sharp hike from the previous ten percent and a heavy blow for china's export led economy beijing is calling for compromise. we hope the u.s. and china can meet halfway and respect the legitimate interests of both sides.

china's vice premier you her and u.s. treasury secretary steve renouf chin head the negotiating teams the u.s. is concerned about its ballooning trade deficit washington accuses china of blocking access to its markets it's not clear when the two parties will meet again trump tweeted to dispel worries about a looming trade war the levies will be used to prop up a link sectors of the economy. well let's get more on this from d.w. business correspondent sure they'll do below and washington where have all of us solace welcome both and start with you oliver today's talks ended not long after they began what happened. well those were really brief talks in fact that's right it did not come as a surprise though if you take into consideration that the talks were actually stalled a week ago already in negotiators were not very optimistic when they went into the
10:04 pm
talks this morning they then went on to the white halls including the secretary of treasury the newsham to discuss the outcome with u.s. president donald trump who by the way makes a very. impression that he's been tweeting all morning long he says essentially that terrorism good for the u.s. economy and he also continuously tweeted and stressed the chinese would be paying for the terror of eventually economists however are challenging that they believe that the american businesses that would have to pay the bill in the end of the day and that they would also give the pass that on to the consumers when for instance consumer electronics would become more expensive that said all goods that are currently in transit say that they have left the chinese coast on a container ship for instance and that would take three to four weeks to arrive in america these goods are excluded and that gives the negotiators a certain time frame again to renegotiate should they get together within that time
10:05 pm
frame in case or general to do china says it will respond to what start response likely to look like you know it hasn't said and there are a few things china could do but they all come with a cost now it could for example extend the tariffs it already has on china on u.s. products or return barriers that it had already earlier reversed say like on u.s. auto imports the problem is that china exports more than the u.s. does and it would very quickly run out of you x. u.s. products to impose tariffs on if it includes conductors and boeing planes alternative suppliers for those things would also be in a position to raise prices dramatically so be beijing could lose out on that and. what it could also do is devalue its currency to make its exports cheaper but that's unlikely to go over a month in the thickly again alternatively it could also respond with the boycott of american goods the problem is a lot of chinese workers do work in the assembly and manufacture of american goods
10:06 pm
like i phone so that could backfire as well so it's wide open what china could do at this particular moment but you have quite a few analysts saying that from an economic standpoint to and from the perspective that what they actually want to do is achieve a deal the most prudent thing to do would be nothing now this would all be see how already occurred to chinese policymakers but they're also under political pressure to act so we're just going to have to see which side wins that that argument because all of a sudden it's a just bounces through the main sticking point. so reportedly there is a debate going on in the chinese communist party about within reformers and and hardliners about the question how to move on here and that led to a very late decision all of the chinese president xi jinping over the question how to tackle the ongoing debate the key sticking points here are the protection of
10:07 pm
intellectual property american one of course and also certain laws restraining american businesses and eventually the clash erupted then over the question which hard of the final agreement should be made public sensually the chinese side does not want to publicly admit that its electoral property laws are flawed because that would also mean that they would look as the losers of this of this trade agreement all of a summit in washington. but you do good business thank you both. now let's take a look at some of the other stories making news around the world the united nations says record numbers of people are being displaced within their homelands by who and violence more than forty one million last year far in excess of the number to flee to other countries syria colombia and somalia were among the top ten countries for the number of people displaced internally. truly afghan national congress is

heading for victory in south africa's election despite gaining its lowest ever share of the vote counting almost complete the a.n.c. has fifty seven percent their worst performance for twenty five years presents a rather poser replaced scandal hit jacob zuma last year. and every journalist as usual has to call to germany that he was tortured while i held in the to jail is he holds president vet of time on personally responsible turkish german that you just spent a year behind bars without being formally indicted but i'm proceeding with charges against. there's been another tragedy involving migrants from africa in the mediterranean sea as many as seventy people are feared to have that drowned when that boat sank near the coast of tunisia one of the worst such incidents this year the tunisian defense ministry says the boats had set sail from libya i was heading for italy the u.n. says fewer people are making the journey to europe nowadays but they voyages
10:09 pm
apparently are becoming we have this report on a different group of migrants pulled from the mediterranean. rescued from a sinking ship. an italian boat. run by a humanitarian charity save them forty kilometers off the libyan coast. the thirty migrants including two pregnant women and five children according to the ngo are just a few of the thousands of people who have already attempted to cross the mediterranean this year. according to italy's anti migration deputy prime minister. italy's ports are closed to illegal migrants but these people landing in lampedusa cicely a lucky italy's prime minister giuseppe conseco allowed the ship to dock tomorrow john you know stuff applaud the migrants but this might have been its last mission . i've spoken to sell vini about the mara journey and we agree on the police seizing the ship. was already on
10:10 pm
a warning. this ship is one of the very few rescue ships still in operation in the mediterranean context said other european union member states had agreed to take some of these people a sign that the e.u.'s migrant distribution agreements are working albeit on an ad hoc basis although far fewer people are headed to europe than at the peak of migration in two thousand and fifteen thousand still take the perilous journey every month and as summer brings better weather conditions the number of attempted crossings is likely to increase. let's talk about this with chris chris he's a member of sea watch one of the aid organizations providing migrant boats in distress with humanitarian assistance at sea welcome to date of you know that you've been on a number of these rescue missions but now that another of these boats has been seized the other you actually left out that well the. rescue boat has been
10:11 pm
seized before and has been freed before so actually at the moment there are three active rescue ships left in the mediterranean one of which. is again the last time this lasted for a week so we will see how long this knows because usually the vega liberations of irregularities on board never prove. founded on anything. maybe they bring you in what you would say was a trumped up charge of actually properly investigated and then you're allowed to go anywhere you get. ship back just totally actually does he watch three hour shift from the watch has just been freed by a court in the netherlands who decided on who ruled that the netherlands blocking our ship from leaving port did this not on a legal basis and so our ship is now being prepared to go back and mission after being off for one month and how do these missions work do you just sort of sail around waiting for something to happen or do you sort of see things going on and then go and investigate well today i. sadly the rescue coordination center is in
10:12 pm
malta and in italy they don't cooperate with us anymore so you've got these a government or coast guard unit organisation. usually you would coordinate search and rescue efforts. so today. we go to the internationally agreed search and rescue zone which is a strip off the coast of libya in international waters where we look for these boats we see which we have also two planes in operation who are actually scanning the operation area and then we try and go and rescue as many people as we can because now it is getting somewhere and as we see a lot of people are leaving libya there is a cost that clearly europe has it has its self in a mess over its migration policy its policy is to try to reduce these numbers. the numbers are folding the cost though is counted in terms of human lives it could be argued that that policy is working well the policy is built on graves that
10:13 pm
policy is making the mediterranean sea a bit huge graveyard. there are several reasons and then all the people who trade in people going out to see that all the people who put them these people in the boat the problem is the people are in libya other people are stuck in libya lots of people are stuck in libya a lot of people are stuck in detention centers an illegitimate detention in torture in slavery. they have to leave this country the civil war is raging again more than in the last ones people are being shot in these migrant detention centers we've seen all this in the last couple of weeks the people need to leave that and the only way to leave libya at the moment is through the sea because he's a desperate. plea from the sea watch that can thank you very much. if it has waited too long because of sought refuge in foreign embassies as the government widens its crackdown on the lives of opposition leader one quite oh it comes a day after with orses arrest of the vice presidents of the opposition controlled
