at the very last minute differences in policy over iran and china expected to be high on the agenda. our chief political correspondent is following that story for us and she is standing in front of the chance to welcome michelle and my compu met earlier with foreign minister heikal moss what came out of that meeting. yes in fact they just concluded their press conference about half an hour's drive here from the chancellor which will be the next stop for mike pompei oh and then he apologized for having had to cancel at the last moment something which clearly was seen as a bit of a diplomatic insult here in berlin after he says he's in office after all for more than a year and what became clear is that both sides can talk to each other but also that there are major major differences when it comes to key areas of policy particularly china the approach to poor way which is also bidding to set up germany's

a 5 g. telecommunications network here in germany german informant's said germany took a different approach it didn't rule them out from the start it would be very high standards they would have to meet and if they fail to meet that they wouldn't be allowed to bid but this is a big bone of contention here also the other issues particularly iran where germany and europe remain adamant that the iran nuclear deal the j. c.p.o. way was the best way to basically stop iran from developing its own nuclear weapon weapon while the us have exactly the same aim but we still make them pay you here once again and describe iran as the number one finance of terrorism worldwide taking a much much tougher rhetoric something that is being perceived as not being very constructive on the german and the european side so clear fault lines but the effort at least to talk about this contentious issues and we should in fact just before pompeo came to germany he said that the president is not entirely satisfied

with the relationship between the 2 countries and as you outlined there are big issues dividing them what kind of outcome is expected from these talks then. i'm not sure we'll really see a big breakthrough here but one basic courses and that wasn't mentioned here but that is an issue that donald trump is very concerned about is the trade surplus of course he feels that europe and germany are basically munt making money out of the united states at the same time the united states is paying a lot of money for nato in particular and that once again we heard from mike pump a of the demand to increase defense spending was put more subtle than we usually see so these are major points of contention these are major different approaches that i asked today that pursue throughout this conversation and we would expect that also to be highlighted in the conversation with german chancellor angela merkel in the chancery behind me but there will be the kind of extensive press conference that we

saw with the german foreign minister hike in march and anglo-american return to the united states mikaela where she delivered the commencement address at harvard university and she also made some very pointed remarks about the presidency during her address to what extent can visit help to improve relations between 2 countries who are actually meant to be very close allies. well both sides do stress that they share common values that they have common aims and that they just have different approaches to reaching those institutionally when it comes to best western values like democracy and freedom the approach to china for instance i'm going back actually didn't mention trump i don't know in her commencement speech she was speaking to a friendly audience a very democratic leaning audience but there were some messages in there which will clearly understood when she talked about lies not being sold as truth and truth should not be misconstrued as lies in particular everybody knew what she was

talking about and that is the message that clearly would also have been heard in washington but when it comes to the nitty gritty of policy for instance the other issue that we might see some kind of progress here is syria the u.s. wants a buffer zone in the north and it wants germany to play a role in that it will see how much we can read between the lines because they're very tough restrictions to the german parliament on the move like that experience standing outside the chancery where so korea said mike pompei oh and german just. to have talks shortly thank you very much for the opted from there. now pompous visitor but in comes a day after as i mentioned german chancellor angela merkel delivered the commencement address at harvard university her advice to the graduating class was laced with indirect criticism of dollars. have a listen. tear their own waltz of ignorance
