the u.s. and china together those 2 countries represent 40 percent of global economic. a trade war has been on for a year which has sent shock waves through the world's economy now the leaders have agreed to restart trade talks as trump promises not to impose new tariffs on chinese goods those talks came on the heels of a breakthrough for the european union and the latin american bloc known as america's are the e.u. saying to trade deal with argentina brazil and uruguay to slash billions in tariffs this is a historical moment these negotiations have been 2 decades in the making the summit in osaka has focused on international trade tensions but for some they are the climate crisis was at the top of the agenda the group of sainted agreement on climate change similar to the one signed at last year's summit in argentina again with the u.s. refusing to join the efforts united nations secretary general antonio good taters
11:03 am
said the warming climate can no longer be ignored i believe in science and the best available science that we have today was the find by the i.p.c.c. reports making clear that we should limit the growth of temperature to the end of the century to 1.5 degrees and the finding a road map to reach that objective and that's requires an admitting full increase in ambition only the u.s. which produces 15 percent of the world's greenhouse gases actively opposes progress on that front. while a donald trump's final press conference at the g 20 he praised his relationship with chinese president xi jinping and was also upbeat about the ongoing trade spat between the u.s. and china. we had a great meeting and we will be continuing to negotiate and i promised for at least the time being we're not going to be lifting tariffs
11:04 am
on china we won't be adding an additional. you know tremendous amount of what we have i guess $350000000000.00 left which could be taxed. and we're not doing that we're we're going to work with china on where we left off to see if we can make a deal. max hoffman is covering the g 20 summit and he joins us now from osaka hello to you max so the u.s. president described his talks with pain china's president as excellent but did they even manage to settle any of their differences on trade. they settled one issue that was probably going to send a sigh of relief through world markets which is they're going to hold off slapping their mutual goods with further tariffs something that donald trump the us president threatened to do i think as early as as late as last week wanting to.
11:05 am
put tariffs on $300000000000.00 worth of chinese goods and that would have really made a difference on world trade so this seems to be off the table for now which is the important word here because i remember marianna after the one as i was g. 20 summit last year we were exactly at this point and then things started going downhill from there so it really really matters what kind of trade agreement they will reach if they reach a trade agreement within the next weeks because that's much more complicated than sitting down together here at the g. 20 summit shaking heads and saying everything is excellent when you still have so many problems and details to solve well max another major development at the g. 20 was the announcement by the e.u. they've reached a draft agreement of what's the biggest trade pact in the u.s.
11:06 am
history with the americas for a group of latin american countries what's the significance of the timing of the announcement of this draft trade deal. you know there was you know you couldn't you couldn't make this up really because the one hand you have leaders struggling with bilateral agreements like china and the u.s. and on the other hand you have the you shining on the world trade stage going up there and saying it took us 20 years but still we made it and it shows that there is still room for this kind of compromise for the multilateral framework and it's unimaginable that this is just a coincidence this was on purpose to send the message the e.u. is open for business and our model is actually working if you look at it and the model that donald trump in the u.s. and all the other countries that are not in favor of the maltese lateral framework of hashing out these kind of compromises and deals are on the wrong track well max and despite various differences among the g 20 they still manage to renew
11:07 am
a commitment to tackle climate change will at least without donald trump and they also were able to agree on a final communique so do both of these things then qualify as a success in your opinion. well the climate issue might have been even more complicated than the trade issue because as we understand the united states demanded at the beginning that the whole topic of climate change be scrapped from the final communique but there was strong opposition against that and then there was fear that other countries like brazil might not want to sign that part of the communique because in brazil you now have joe you're both sort of a rose often called the trump of the tropics and he said he was a big fan of trump's over there seem to be some danger there but in the end they managed to keep the 19 together so 19 countries except for the united states to sign that paragraph of the communique and that does qualify as a success even though you don't have the 2nd biggest polluter in the world when it
11:08 am
comes to greenhouse gas emissions the united states in that and of course that is not good for the planet as a whole but if you look at the g 20 and what could be expected from this meeting that success i think you know generically speaking the same qualifies for trade there was some compromise they had to take out for example the protectionism part in the past where they said protectionism is bad due to influence of the united states but they still managed to have some common ground there and a communique itself something that many doubted beforehand so yes keeping the status quo in these difficult times qualifies as a success well max along with trade and climate change there is another topic that was discussed that german chancellor angela merkel of health and there has been a great deal of concern after she was seen having it episode of shaking 2 times she did talk about that at a press conference let's have a quick listen. these kinds of jubilation and i can tell you that firstly i
11:09 am
understand your question but i have nothing special to tell you except the time well i'm convinced that just as this reaction came up bite it will also go away again and again. all right so the german chancellor a bit cryptic there max what do you make of her statement. when i was there at the press conference and you could tell that you know she doesn't like that kind of questions nobody really does but by signaling that she understood the question she acknowledges that there were there was a problem she's quite open about that but she won't say she knows why disappeared and why this disappeared again all i can say from seeing her twice during these 2 days is that she appeared to be as she always is very calm very collected we did not see any shaking of any kind and i'm not a doctor so i don't really know what this means for us what's important is she doing her job here can we can we give
11:10 am
a judgment on that and yes she definitely did do what is expected of a german chancellor at the g. 20 summit in osaka. next often reporting for us from osaka we thank you very much. well meanwhile president trump said he may meet with north korean leader kim jong un when he goes to the militarized zone in south korea tomorrow trump offered to shake hands with the north korean dictator at the d.m.z. in a tweet he said pyongyang has been receptive to the suggestion but that nothing had yet been confirmed. that he responded and you will see all right let's get you up to speed now and some of the other stories making news around the world. month that veber an ally of german chancellor angela merkel is out of the running to become e.u. commission president that's according to the german newspaper time zone tog the paper says leaders at the g.
