2:02 pm
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 syria the e.u. saying to trade deal with argentina brazil and europe wide 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 signed an 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 effort united nations secretary general antonio ted has 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 that clear that we should limit the growth of temperature to the end
2:03 pm
of the century to 1.5 degrees and the finding a roadmap to reach that object and that's requires admitting. only the u.s. which produces 15 percent of the world's greenhouse gases actively opposes progress on that front. while the donald. final press conference at the g. 20 he praised his relationship with chinese president xi jinping and he 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 promise for. police the time being we're not going to be lifting tariffs on china we won't be having any additional. you know tremendous amount of what we have i guess $350000000000.00 left which could be taxed or could be tariffs
2:04 pm
and we're not doing that we're we're going to work with china on where we left off to see if we could all do max hoffman is covering the g. 20 summit and he joins us now from osaka so max we just heard donald trump describing his talks with the chinese president xi and paying as being excellent but did the 2 of them actually manage to settle any of their differences on trade. you know i have a days of rumor and we were at exactly the same position basically about have a year ago in going to cyrus at the last 20 summit when she didn't pin that donald trump also met and said they had good talks and now they would work things out but that didn't happen so it reminds me of that situation of course good news here no terrors for the time being on additional chinese goods from the americans that will
2:05 pm
send a sigh of relief through world markets but this is not the trade agreement that the 2 are looking for that will take much longer well they will have to talk about the details where they will have to find compromise and it might go downhill just as it went last time. well max and the other significant development at the summit was the e.u. announcing that it's reached a draft agreement of a trade pact with them their cars are a group of latin american countries now this would be the biggest trade pact in the eaves history. was the timing of this meant to send some sort of message. well i think we can be sure that this was supposed to send a very strong message and the message was look some are trying to reach bilateral agreements and have a very tough time doing so in this case china and the united states we have been negotiated for 20 years with the markets or states not giving up and finally
2:06 pm
reaching compromise but it was worth it so the message is the european union is a champion of free trade is a champion of the multilateral system and is open for business a mass also very significant is that the g 20 well at least without a donald trump the rest of the countries there are a new to their commitment to tackle climate change and somehow despite all the difference is they were also able to agree on a final communique so do both of these things and qualify as success in your opinion. well the climate change part was one of the most difficult parts together with the trade part so if you reach an agreement there then it's more likely to reach an overall agreement and indeed the negotiators the so-called sherpas had to go through 2 nights straight without sleeping to make it there in the morning a saturday that things were unclear yet the leaders had to intervene and in the end they found this compromise that they had already used by the way at the last 20
2:07 pm
summit where the 19 signatories of the paris agreement the paris agreement being that agreement that's supposed to limit global warming to 2 degrees celsius. they say this is irreversible and then noting that there is the exception of the united states that does not heard to the paris agreement of course this is not in the original spirit of the g. 20 where in the past you were always looking for a consensus but this is the only possibility to get the united states on board for this and to have this at least for the 19 others very strong commitment to fighting climate change but it was very difficult the negotiators said more difficult than ever there was a lot of doubt if even those 19 countries that signed this part could be kept together because you have some new leaders for example gerry abodes an hour from brazil who is also called the trump of the tropics it was unclear if he was going to sign it but in the end they made it they convinced it well max another topic along with trade and climate change was the german chancellor is on the americans
