that shima u.s. secretary of state mike is in berlin to me german chancellor angela merkel and foreign minister. america's top diplomat in the german capital this morning 3 weeks after he suddenly postponed his visit to germany at the bailiff minute instead he flew off to iraq to win support for washington's position in growing tensions with iran and the differences in the u.s. and european iran policies are also expected to be high on the agenda. now for more. political correspondents welcome simon secretary of state and i phone pale is visiting button for the 1st time and we know after he abruptly canceled his previous trip what is on the agenda and he still you have a secretary of state finally got got to germany a year after he took office as you mentioned he's here to have meetings with
9:03 am
foreign minister master also with chancellor americal and there's quite a few there's a list you could say of complaints that the trumpet ministration have about german policy and pompei are mentioned some of them as he set off in particular that battle over germany's military spending the u.s. doesn't think germany spending enough but also the question of a hallway the chinese telecoms company u.s. is very worried about the idea that that company be involved in telecoms or internet provision in europe including in germany. i think they're probably also going to talk about the nord stream to gas pipeline project between russia and germany because the u.s. had been threatening sanctions against germany and other countries over that so that's that's that's a key source of their conflict point and i think they'll also be talking about iran of course. whether this is
9:04 am
a huge difference over what's the best way to pressure the iranian regime to steer away from nuclear weapons that of course is the issue. in part the issue that caused pompei or to cancel his is planned visit 3 weeks ago he said in a rush off and deal with issues in iraq and iran in the region. you know he's finally got here but there's a lot for them to talk about exactly we'll continue our conversation in just a bit simon but 1st we meet chancellor merkel in just a few last time and she has just returned from the united states where she delivered the commencement address at harvard university bias to the drug just with spiked with indirect criticism of donald trump's policies don't waltz of ignorance in their own mind that this thing has to stay as it is. it was one of several standing ovations for the german chancellor during hurricane speech she ended and
9:05 am
began in english highly unusual for under the merkel at such a major event. then gets awfully if we step out and embrace new beginnings everything is possible. for the normally cautious pragmatic politician this was a far reaching to do list she spoke of halting global warming eradicating starvation eliminating diseases giving people especially girls access to education and fighting the causes of displacement and forced migration forced migration that's we can do all of that at. the harvard commencement speech is by tradition inspirational setting the bar high for graduating students. the not to act impulsively but to take a moment to stop and think during laughter as well as applause. more than once michael seemed to conjure up donald trump without mention of his name. that's
9:06 am
that means not calling a lie is truth or truth lies. the chancellor's mixture of the political and the inspirational seemed to resonate with the graduating students. before me the main message is about believing that's wallace can be broken and for me i think wallace is sort of a metaphor for anything it could be sort of your own close minded dress or your own servant violence to how you see the issues of the world whether you know whether or not you think they could be solved i think the speech was very well done and well received and i think that she's struck a balance between inspiring the graduates to make change in the world and also sending a political message. america has made it clear this is her last time as chancellor and her speech was a nod to the legacy she hopes to leave behind especially a firm commitment to strong transatlantic times. not turning return dishonesty of
9:07 am
a political correspondent silent and love making it's a very pointed remarks during her commencement address there warning against snap decisions and impulsive action how do you think that's going to play. into talks with talks with mike the secretary of state of the united states who is here for the 1st time i have pushed a visit yeah i mean those were very pointed remarks she didn't actually mention president trump but i think everyone in the audience understood that that was what she was talking about with those talking about snap decision making and also really criticizing broadly american foreign policy talking about isolationism and you know setting up boundaries what you need to do is find common solutions multilateralism was it was a plea for that really a speech we've heard from anglo-american many times before i don't think it changes exactly the dynamic of course as i say pump air is the one who's chosen the timing
9:08 am
of their meeting today so it's just unfortunate for him baths that you know it's come after this rather pointed speak from the chancellor in america and obviously it will add a little extra spice to those conversations absolutely and as we saw it at the speech was really well received by the students at harvard now it also gave her a big platform to address certain issues which are very close to her hot yeah i mean she receiving the honorary degree from harvard for her. via chef and so sort of can do attitude on migration and openness to welcome refugees into germany of course highly controversial policy so i'm not sure of the university is aware of all the nuances around that policy that still plague angle medical here but there is a sense in which angela merkel is on the sort of home straight of chancellorship she won't be standing again of course as we know she's got a couple of years at most to run and i think she's sort of drawing together these
9:09 am
strands of her worldview multilateralism the battle against climate change but also a sort of respectful approach in dealing with the world vs that's what she was playing for right handed obvious political correspondent thank you very much for the analysis. in u.s. politics president trump is announced that the country will add a 5 percent tariff to all goods coming into mexico as a way to curb illegal immigration and american southern border says the terrorists an increase and it is clear the mexico is doing more to prevent immigrants crossing the u.s. border illegally. 2 years after negotiations for a new nafta began everything seem to be working just fine. today we will send the relevant information so that the senate of the republic can ratify the free trade agreement with the united states and canada canada. then an unexpected shot fired from washington u.s.
9:10 am
president trump tweeting about a 5 percent tariff on all goods coming into our country from mexico trump threatens to gradually increase tariffs until the illegal immigration problem is remedied their reaction in mexico shock it's. exactly and i just read that right out there i just read it as something to sastre us because that threat taken into action would be very grave very serious extremely serious. at the same time it's no secret to anyone that president trump is very active in his use of tweets. but mexico can hardly afford to ignore the threat the u.s. as its most important trading partner trade between the neighbors was worth 670000000000 dollars last year. also crossing the border so-called illegal immigrants as seen in
