is in berlin for talks with german chancellor angela merkel and foreign minister. america's top diplomat down in the german capital this morning 3 weeks after he suddenly postponed his trip to germany at the very last 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 europe and iran on a things are also expected to be high on the agenda in berlin. now from all i had with me political correspondents welcome simon now secretary of state is visiting berlin for the 1st time and we know after he abruptly canceled his previous trip what is on the agenda and the still you have the secretary of state's finally got got to germany a year after he took office as you mentioned he's here to have meetings with foreign minister models or with chancellor americal and there's quite a few there's
10:03 am
a list you could say of complaints that the trumpet ministration have about german policy and pompei you 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 and also the question of a while why the chinese telecoms company u.s. is very worried about the idea that that company be involved in telecoms or the 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. has been threatening sanctions against germany and other countries over that so that's that's that's a key source of conflict point and i think they'll also be talking about iran of course where this is a huge difference over what's the best way to pressure the iranian regime to. steer
10:04 am
away from nuclear weapons that of course is the issue. in part the issue that caused pompei ot cancel is his planned visit 3 weeks ago he had to rush off and deal with issues in iraq and 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 silent but 1st will be chelsea america in just a few hours time and she has just returned from the united states russia delivered the commencement address at harvard university advised to the dr just was spiked with indirect criticism donald trump's policies here go over waltz of ignorance in their own mind this fall nothing has to stay as it is. it was one of several standing ovations for the german chancellor during hurricane speech she ended and began in english highly unusual for an american at such a major event. then gets off to the if we step out and embrace new beginnings
10:05 am
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. to them not to act impulsively but to take a moment to stop and think during laughter as well as a pool's. more than once michael seemed to conjure up donald trump without mention of his name. that's that means not calling lies truth. the
10:06 am
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 the believe in. can be broken and for me i think wallace is sort of a metaphor for anything it could be sort of close mindedness. 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 this 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 written exam are still with me our political correspondent simon making rights and they pointed remarks
10:07 am
during a commencement address there warning against snap decisions an impulsive action how do you think that's going to play in into talks with talks with my secretary of state of the united states who is here for the 1st time either push 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 voters 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 play 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 pompei or is the one who's chosen the timing of their meeting today so it's just unfortunate for him bad. you know it's come
10:08 am
after this rather pointed speak from the chancellor in america and obviously it'll add a little extra spice to those conversations absolutely and as we saw that 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 a hot yeah i mean receiving the honorary degree from harvard for her. 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 the university is aware of all the nuances around that policy that still plague angle americal here but there is a sense in which angela merkel's on the sort of home strikes of chancellorship she won't be standing again of course as we know she's got a couple of years to run and i think she's sort of drawing together the strands of her worldview multilateralism the battle against climate change but also
10:09 am
a sort of respectful approach in dealing with other world vs that's what she was playing for right some handed obvious political correspondent thank you very much for your analysis. to us politics and president announced that the us will add a 5 percent tariff to all goods coming into mexico as a way to cut illegal immigration at america south and border trump says a tad if the increase until it is clear that mexico is doing more to prevent immigrants crossing the u.s. border illegally the implications of this move on trade talks is unclear. 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 you can either. then an unexpected shot fired from washington u.s.
10:10 am
president trump tweeting about a 5 percent tariff on all goods coming into our country from mexico trump threatens to credibly 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

says tobacco kills more than $7000000.00 people each year graphic warnings on cigarette packets advertising bans and tobacco taxes have discourage people from smoking some though have now turned to cigarettes but as we hear our next report is cigarettes can also of course health problems. strawberry is among the most popular flavors for each cigarette smokers or vapors. there's a huge range to choose from. the cigarettes are claimed to contain fewer harmful substances for users than conventional tobacco varieties the liquids which generally have added nicotine and aroma are only heated and not burned the image is a healthier alternative is likely a major factor in east cigarettes becoming increasingly popular among young people but the reality behind the image is not that simple liquids such as the jewel brand
10:19 am
smoked by many teenagers in the u.s. contain over twice the amount of nicotine permitted in the u. as a result one in 5 high school students are already addicted at the end of last year the u.s. health authorities declared the rapid rise in rates of youths using these products to be nothing short of an epidemic. we have never seen use of any substance and by america's young people rise this rapidly this is an unprecedented challenge we're at risk of a huge share of a whole generation developing an addiction to nicotine and that is not a future anyone wants for our country. but tobacco companies are busy expanding into what they see as a lucrative new business philip morris has since acquired a 35 percent stake in jewel small british american tobacco owns the high end smoked chain of bait stores. while sales in conventional cigarettes are falling in europe in the us to buckle remains hugely popular in emerging and developing nations.

despite the rising demand for liquids the tobacco industry still earns of a 90 percent of its turnover from conventional cigarettes last year then manufacturers made $700000000000.00 worldwide with them the industry even expects that figure to increase. it's a thriving business for the corporations but for consumers it could mean dependency on long term health risks where they smoke the conventional or electronic variety of cigarette. now from fort on the set for the 2nd straight season liverpool have reached the champions league final here going to clubs side fell to real madrid last year is no stranger to losing finals he's been drawn up in his law fix well that drought and on european football's biggest stage in madrid on thursday he said he hopes. club has been embraced by more than just liverpool the entire footballing

a warning you might find some of the images in this report distressing. show time at mesa elephant camp twice a day the elephants entertain visitors with their skills everything looks playful but tricks like this are only possible after long training explains one of the compound interests. if you would like to let your children know english you should talk english to them things that were young same thing with their love if you would like to lead them obey you are lifted on you use it teach them sing there were young. for centuries elephants in southeast asia we used for transport in the timber industry until logging was banned in the region 30 years ago. with thousands of captive elephants out of work their owners turn to tourism. elephant tourism is now a lucrative business but one that's lightly regulated. nina

ortman brass is a biologist she advises camps on how to ensure that entertaining tourists isn't detrimental to elephant wellbeing. and good welfare can easily be done in a writing camp if you provide the elephant with. enough food enough water enough rest and an otherwise reef and discomfort also. to biologists is pleased with the camp's general conditions the elephants seem to be in good shape she says but she admits that she often runs into secrecy just like today when asked about the specific methods of training young elephants the camp veterinarian becomes rather tight lipped. and often cannot call it us their views the us and here the cover of it has. on the internet it's possible to find videos of a torturous ritual decided to break an elephant spirit the method has been used for
10:25 am
centuries it's a brutal training process that can go on for weeks only when the elephant stops resisting is that released from its agony. animal rights groups are calling for a boycott of elephant camps they're convinced interactions like these are only possible once an elephant has been broken many western travel companies have stopped offering this kind of tourism but with growing numbers of chinese visitors business is thriving. brusk thinks an effective boycott would do more harm than good. if there is no revenue coming into the camp the elephant will still be here but it will just have very very poor condition. yes i listen sure acim is so cute harmless fun but once you look a bit closer to picture stuff.
