a delegation from seoul is demanding says. the produce d.j. proving that age is cool in the mind she still gets some rocking at the age of ac and is showing no signs of taking a dignified retirement. i mean you could sneak in and thanks so much for joining us. the united states has raised the pressure on its western allies over whether equipment supplied by the chinese manufacturer way should be used in telecoms networks on a visit to belin secretary of state mike pompei is said that deciding to use the chinese companies equipment could result in countries being cut off from crucial intelligence data supplied by the united states and on the surface from payers
5:02 pm
talks they were cordial but relations between the 2 allies remain strained the u.s. trade policy and iran. friday's meetings in berlin were a long time coming more than a year after he took office and after visits to almost 40 other countries u.s. secretary of state mike pump aoe finally visited his german counterpart heiko mosse and german chancellor angela merkel high time to put a good face on a strained alliance. germany is a great important partner an ally of the united states that's why i am so happy to have this time today with chancellor merkel america also stressed the importance of transatlantic relations. and states is and will remain germany's most important side europe. but it soon became clear how big the differences are on iran for example germany is sticking to a deal to prevent the iranians acquiring nuclear weapons the us has long since
5:03 pm
withdrawn from that deal and is relying on sanctions. we've been pretty clear about trade with iran there are items that are sanctioned in their items that are not humanitarian aid for example is exempted the german foreign minister made conciliatory statements. we are going in different directions at the moment but i think we are aware that our goals have always remained the same and i hope we will be able to achieve those goals together. but at the moment it's difficult to find similarities between germany and. in the u.s. that became clear on thursday when chancellor merkel received an honorary doctorate from harvard university in her speech she clearly distanced herself from the nationalist and protectionist policies of president trump. for more i'm joined by the chief political correspondent milind a crane melinda both sides emphasize the importance of the german american
5:04 pm
friendship but there are a major policy differences between these 2 countries on the how deep to the rift between washington and belin. the differences are very deep i'm not sure i would term this a rift at the moment but any one of these differences can become a. greater division just starting with the main topic on the agenda today namely iran you heard both sides saying as the report pointed out that their goals are the same the goals being to contain iran to stop iran from getting a nuclear weapon and to limit iran's ability to support terrorism and terrorists elsewhere and to produce a list take missiles but the main difference here is so great that it's very hard to see how you bridge it namely the europeans and germany amongst them want to keep the nuclear deal in place they say that is the best means of containing any threat
5:05 pm
from iran and to keep it in place they want to maintain trade with iran because they say if the u.s. sanctions are permitted to essentially completely embargo trade with iran then iran will surely leave the nuclear deal and proceed to with its plans or its former attempts to get an atomic weapon so the europeans move together to establish their own payment system that would allow european companies to go around us payment systems in order to keep trade with iran alive that hasn't proven very effective to date but here's my pompei was saying we will only tolerate this as long as humanitarian goods exclusively are involved meaning any other trade with iran will be sanctioned this means essentially a confrontation course between the u.s. not and not only iran but between its closest allies namely the europeans if in
5:06 pm
fact they try to keep trade with iran alive and i'm machall has just returned from the united states where she delivered the commencement address at harvard university and she outlined a vision that was essentially diametrically opposed to trump's approach can pump a is visit in any way help improve relations between the 2 allies. unlikely indeed we have an absolute frontal clash between 2 very different ways of seeing the world and the main difference i think our report mentioned nationalism the main difference though is unilateralism the us is clearly in key areas and other ones on the agenda today relations with china and especially with the company while way relations on the north stream gas pipeline between russia and germany again and again the us tired take is maximum pressure whereas the german approach as outlined by chancellor merkel is multilateral cooperation try to understand the other side's
5:07 pm
perspective these are true truly diametrically opposite visions and in fact it's very hard to see how they can be recreated inside simply by friendly words about the importance of transatlantic relations all right melinda crane thank you so much . and for more on the trade aspects of this i'm joined by cliff it coonan from business cliff thanks for joining us now both china and the u.s. are presenting themselves here as winning the trade war so who's right well in a way they're they're both right these are the 2 biggest economies in the world they both have a lot of cards to play at the u.s. is bigger and it is more powerful so it has him to introduce a lot more tower of so far china is introducing more tower. so at the moment they're kind of neck and neck but the i think overall the fact that the u.s. is the bigger economy shows that it's probably just ahead and now europe is in a tricky position and this trade tools isn't it because it's kind of stuck in the middle that's right i mean we saw it there with the political picture this is sort of the there are quite uncomfortable in this current row. there's other tarsa could
5:08 pm
be introduced could be imposed on europe if it if it does go ahead but while away so there are a lot of areas that europe will be hoping that the u.s. doesn't play its cards on and i think it is it is struggling a little bit to try and impose its views on the what the americans are doing now the chinese president xi shan is in berlin today so is mike. is this a coincidence and is there any prospect of a trade deal between china and the u.s. any time soon well i think the timing is certainly has to be significant we don't have any information about whether they're meeting or not but it's very you know there is a possibility that they could meet it's also it's also a signal from both sides i think you know that. they're aware that europe is sort of this place that they both need to come and pay their respects but at the same time they're trying to keep them on side so i think whether there could be
5:09 pm
a deal of course is very open there's talk about a deal possibly at the g. 20 in tokyo at the end of the month but the meeting there president trump has played up his relationship with president xi jinping and. possibly he could be creating a problem in order to find a solution we don't know but but there's an awful lot of areas where they still haven't found any agreement so i think a lot of people a lot of the analysts are saying that they don't really expect a deal any time too soon with a train in from the business thanks so much. all right let's have a look at some of the other stories making news around the world today. police in the city of zurich say a 60 year old swiss man killed 2 women hostage is off to a 3 hour standoff with police the nationalities of the women has not yet been determined gun violence is relatively rare in switzerland where voters this month agreed to adopt strict gun control those. india's prime minister would never enter

5:13 pm
arrived about how the actually happened. well what we do know is that of course she came here 1st of all to pay her respects student many victims that are believed to have died in what is really to worst tragedy for hungary all the danube river in decades but it is saying time she is also here of course doreen mind. to really take this investigation seriously. for instance that the company cations between those 2 ships were absolutely not goot and she wants to know what happened many occasions for instance that she already made clear and of course at the same time the rescue operation is underway but there was little hope left that the remaining $21.00 people will be found alive and actually the expectation is that in the end of the day at least $28.00 people including a 6 year old child may have to try to do so as you say the investigation is still
