this is deja vu news live from berlin president trump's top diplomat is now in the german capital for talks at this hour mike pompei o and mackel stressing they have the same values but agreeing a little beyond that from iran and china to ukraine and trade the true leaders have a tough time finding common ground. just yesterday i was in the us where she addressed harvard's graduating class. of ignorance and narrow mindedness. has to stay as it is pure graduates to embrace
1:01 pm
optimism as she made her case for multilateralism and cooperation. also on the show hungary's prime minister calling for a star of probe of the fatal boat collision on the danube with the firm data 21 missing almost all south koreans a delegation from the country's government is demanding answers. alone a very warm welcome to the show i'm brian thomas u.s. secretary of state. for all american 4 high level talks here in berlin. coming 3 weeks after he abruptly canceled flying to germany in the last minute differences in policy over iran and china are expected to be very high on their agenda. now
1:02 pm
before heading into that meeting they gave a short press conference here's what they had to say even the end of we will have plenty of issues to discuss today the secretary of state and i the world is indeed in unrest 1st and foremost among the issues on our agenda today we will talk about iran how can we make sure that iran doesn't have any nuclear weapons on how can we work to prevent further aggressive actions on the part of iran we've also talked about afghanistan both our countries have substantial numbers of troops there syria is also going to be on our agenda as the situation is very fragile again thank you for having me here today there is important work for our 2 countries to do alongside our our nato partners and alongside all of our allies to achieve security for our own people and stability and peace in this much of the world as we possibly can so thank you for having me here today. our chief political editor michelle acuff there standing by for us at the chancellor's office where talks are taking place at this hour between the 2 michelle what can you tell us something about the
1:03 pm
atmosphere between pompei o and on the back. it was a very professional atmosphere certainly no big political love lost between the 2 we saw some very brief statements and most of the might compare that saying that he wants to work with nato partners on those issues machall going through almost a full laundry list but not mentioning china about that no doubt would have also been an issue as it already was in this talks between mike and his counterparts here. in the south whom he met earlier in the day but this is a similar kind of meeting that macros had in the past with theresa may where there's no press conference off the work they need beforehand that's often the signal that there could be contentious issues to discuss and they don't want to talk about any outcome ok there are plenty of contentious issues are including iran as we've been talking about trying apparently as well and at the moment there's
1:04 pm
there's very little common ground between the 2 countries on these issues. yes i mean particularly iran is a very very fundamental rift where the europeans and many are still adamantly against the united states' move to leave for it became known as the wrong nuclear deal which they saw as a milestone in international diplomacy and basically containing potential open conflicts now and certainly what we're hearing out of saudi arabia and iran the rhetoric is definitely heating up and there's a great concern here in berlin that what has been achieved in the past will now be lost to the u.s. taking a very different stance there implementing sanctions and it's also notable that just an hour after i met with my campaigners she was due to meet the chinese deputy prime minister and that's also behind me why you already see that chinese flag up so she didn't mention time china but i'm pretty sure she too would have spoken to
1:05 pm
my pump a about that because it is after all potential trade war looming and that would also affect germany and europe ok michelle with all busy of this moving in the background right now what's your take away from the meeting at the chancery well no doubt relations are bad and both sides are trying to make the best of it for now stressing their common values but just to give an interpretation of what the u.s. values means at the moment means excluding a company like queer way of the chinese technology giant for any kind of contract here in germany and the stance here being on the german side that there must be a very tight requirement for security but you can't use. economics you can't use your trade policy as a form of international policy to the extent that the u.s. is doing that so very fundamentally different approaches and both sides almost trying a bit too much to stress that after all they do said the same values show it oftener
1:06 pm
bring us up to date from the chancellor here in berlin thanks very much michelle or bump a visit to berlin comes a day after chancellor merkel delivered the commencement address at harvard university in boston her advice to the graduating class was laced with indirect criticism of american domestic and foreign policy. ted all the waltz of ignorance and narrow mindedness on that thing has to stay as it is. it was one of several standing ovations for the german chancellor during hurricane and speech she ended and began an english highly unusual for an american 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
1:07 pm
starvation eliminating diseases giving people especially girls access to education and fighting the causes of displacement and forced migration falls migration that's we can do all of that. 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. for the nuns medical team to conjure up donald trump without mention of his name. that's that means not calling law is truth or truth lines. except chancellors mixture of the political and the aspirational seemed to resonate with the graduating students. before me the main message is about
1:08 pm
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 mindedness 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 see . ending a political message. now has made it clear this is her last time this chancellor and his speech was a nod to the legacy she hopes to leave behind especially a firm commitment to strong transatlantic time. and staying in the u.s. president travels announced the u.s. will add a 5 percent tariff to all goods coming into mexico as a way to curb illegal immigration america's southern border the president saying that arabs will increase until it is clear that mexico's doing more to prevent immigrants crossing into the u.s. illegally the implication of this move on trade talks is unclear. 2 years after
1:09 pm
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. 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 it would be very grave very serious extremely serious.
1:10 pm
at the same time it's no secret to anyone that president trump is very active in his use of tweets. ditz. 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 this video from u.s. customs and border patrol recorded in el paso the migrants most of whom are from honduras guatemala and el salvador crossing through mexico trump says the government there is not doing enough to stop the flow of people and to be instead passively cooperating. with some of the other stories making news this hour a number of people have been injured in kabul after a car bombing targeted a u.s. convoy u.s.

1:16 pm
it happened within 7 seconds that small boat sank but any other hand. investigators have told so suggested that city captain made may have steered into the pond a lot your ship about of course it is difficult now to ask of that captain he is most likely a moment to death we have told king about a most likely $28.00 people being killed including $200.00. and the rest south koreans so of course it's difficult to ask him what we also know and that is what so my experts are saying that we are expecting so my black boxes to be brought to the service from both ships and death perhaps more details for investigators stefan boss thanks very much for that update from budapest.
