like tomorrow's. my dinner i have something like that adding up all single. last time something like that happen ha. ha ha i was just god eating history and making history once again would see eight years after that people are done saying jumping chanting it's not just russian fans it's also people from all over the world happy they can see the host that they are playing in the quarter finals. it's a spare a thought for the losers on this occasion spain with hopes of a second well cup title but this is the taste of disappointment for then his well said about it after the game. should. sue the school so she supposed to. get a meeting we should because it's
a. nice machine to paralyse. somebody. especially with the right thing in chess to. what she. does do around you let's take a look at the quarter final that i know it's his eyes on the shade of the. why they call france look to the left of the drool but on the few more things i've done the hard work made it through for the last rush hour and it's all right now they will face croatia that much will be taking place in sochi on saturday july the seventh so just six days for the team to recover a lot of those press specially in the russian were looking really tie today the denmark croatia match she went to exits on it went to penalties as well as for you bit more about that was a lightning start to this last match if you can say with three which was about sixty sixty one seconds on the court books. denmark ahead this was the moment
we were doing was shot through the key for the. really fast start for denmark they couldn't really do much with that lead the gracious start but within these four minutes played at this point as mario muncie kitchen got on the end of a cross into and in his shot the level of the school was so full of his plate and it was warm warm at this point the match continued out. and the food the draw the rules go opportunities to know that was my secrets make it one want you to place it at that point we could be in for another absolute goal fest but it turned out well worn and full tall and it became very very cagey exit sign one pretty much the same way until i actually played only in extra time for a shit got a penalty it went to look about drish best all player was already scored a penalty in this competition and that's just what you say do we send you to the
penalty shootout and not just the first one for ten more christine erickson so it's a test the smoke a licking and no the save in addition to the one in exits on his father was going absolutely crazy there are no other speakers for michael and then mark couldn't capitalize that was the level schools you can see a nickel you'll be finished and that was the winning evolve record teach getting the goal that put you on a ship through to the quarterfinals stronger for smikle so senior and junior that. disappointed of course for denmark too i should congratulate than three despite unexpectedly russia and the last night's been a day of records one of the two thousand and eighteen world cup as read as it's being incredible is the first time that russia made it explicit finals of the show from victory in spain west and shot best in stoke it was also versus first in a penalty shootout to the wild cats a guy and in the later game of the day craziest and i'm not out of the tournament also when. and i don't think. so the celebrations continue i really
don't think because it's. going to get to sleep for at least an hour to. the stated it is hundreds of thousands globally we're talking millions of people are going to be awful lot like you notice they might be doing this all over again in just six days tone. but you're enjoying the coverage and the scenes like this they get off. generally speaking mr trump's unilateralist notably the unilateralism which we saw with regards to iran which we also saw with regards to the paris agreement regarding climate change which we saw with regards to the american embassy in
jerusalem all these unilateral decisions challenge from my point of view the quality of our transatlantic relations. what politicians do something to. put themselves on the line to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president i'm sure. more somehow i want to press. you to go right to be precise this is what the four three in the morning can be good for. i'm interested always in the waters about how. this should.
welcome back the german interior minister is planning to resign in protest against chancellor merkel's immigration policies that's according to national media quoting sources within the minister's party the c.s.u. were more on this r.t. supporters lee it's me live now or thank you very much indeed for joining us i'm paula so can you tell us what's going on here. well the situation is extremely fluid and at this stage there are a lot of rumors but nothing has been confirmed as you say the interior minister horst c. hoffa has reportedly threatened to resign we are however receiving additional reports that he's currently in private meetings with members of his party who are trying to encourage him not to resign now there was a press conference that was supposed to be given some several hours ago it's been postponed three times so there's obviously a lot happening behind the scenes that we're not exactly aware of what is going on the issue at stake is essentially what germany is going to do with the migrant
crisis now the interior minister gave the german chancellor angela merkel a two week alternating that expired on sunday july the first and essentially he was calling for a european solution now there was an e.u. summit that was held thursday and friday and merkel obviously felt that she did find that he would pee and solution at that summit but it certainly feels and seems as if the interior minister mr c. hoffa thinks otherwise what we are hearing and this was a comment given by a party official reportedly to some media is that he feels he has no choice but to resign out of credibility and because it affects his credibility in terms of leading his own party we also understand that he feels that he has no alternative but to turn back migrants who arrive at germany's borders return them back to the countries where they were registered in this obviously flies in the face of most schools open door policy and the two are at loggerheads over what to do over the issue of migrants. you're globe. we are sure that we have the right to meet
jewish. scholars all of us none of them are we go on the other front to solutions so that an effort can be your own people feel that we are guided by values and that we advocate multilateralism not you know literally or no one will believe in our world well you have made us so strong. now if mr c. hoffa in. resigns this will see a breakup of a seventy year alliance between his christian social union party and that of angela merkel's what it does mean is that she will either remain the leader of a minority government or she'll have to call for new elections and at the same time she's likely to face increased pressure and opposition from within a party so essentially the german chancellor is fighting for her own political survival the two leaders did hold a two hour meeting on saturday night but that was described as ineffective and since sunday evening they have been meeting both here in berlin and with their
respective parties and we're waiting to see essentially what announcement he ultimately makes dede going to vote for breath there artie's paula strayer thank you very much indeed thank you. well on friday e.u. leaders managed to agree on a new strategy for tackling migration to the brawl they struck a deal that will see some member states do more to help the countries hardest hit by the influx it comes after weeks of political infighting triggered by the new italian government's hardline stance. it's ridiculous response to the situation with aquarius is proof of a form of cynicism and a lack of responsibility on behalf of the italian government swell faced with this dramatic humanitarian disaster i feel my duty is to defend the borders in this
country because there's just not become a refugee camp you know you those have the right to enter it's legal and it's there on the course they can go to spain france malta and the netherlands. and was done it's going to be a very long night we should have a good dose of red. sox closer to the impossible to even agreement to see the fun.
the only thing european states appear to have agreed on is to block people at the doorstep of europe regardless of how vulnerable the are or what horrors the aske a pain measures there a few years ago were deemed unacceptable now are being common talk so do you think that the e.u. is spelling down to the far right it's just not the property rights list the problem is immigration. donald trump and let him in person will hold their first official meeting on july
the sixteenth in finland but as artie's what i'd guess there are reports not everyone is happy about the summit. trump is acting strange stranger than usual he's being awful nice to russia getting along with russia is a good thing it's not a fair that is. taken by itself the coupe is sensitive might rub on the wrong way what he says next caused a storm he gave up crimea as lost. with. everything else again president obama gave up i mean. that was certainly given up by. the media interpreted it as trump potentially willing to recognize crimea as russia now trump he'd be hounded out of office the same
week but reacting to the summit visuals of the diplomatic. the fact the two presidents are meeting engaging insisting dialogue is something i support i believe it's time to talk shop because to the actions of a neighbor from state to state the pundits though showed no such restraint they're in doubt we have no idea what kind of information that donald trump will say just bragging to vladimir putin may give him the knock listen tell me all the spies are because i want to prove how tough he is the russians clearly showing that they are in the driver's seat on this race dangerous we saw the last time when the russians came in visit visit at the white house where he gave away classified information that is not the way to approach a summit with president putin the way approach summit is to have done your homework and go in united in a way that doesn't play into the narrative that president xi and president putin the been working overtime to push that the president has played into that narrative
in very very dangerous ways. from reasonable concern to outright tara but there could be another explanation for trump's behavior the known game trumps bluff but you're ready to spend more money. me bring. something that would make the united states nato trump says his allies on spending enough trade trump says europe china have it too good he wants the changed things and no one's playing bull looking at the latest decisions of president. someone could see them saying with friends like that who needs enemies we must be prepared. we will have to offer a low trumps a businessman but the thing is in these jeans and if you will pounce on being
pals you need to get them in life and what better way than fia than using big bad russia they get everyone to behave the fact is that it's important for the leaders of these two countries to meet their wide range of issues despite the differences between the square at those present trump and president putin think they may be able to find constructive solutions i'd like to hear someone say that's a bad idea. i don't really address what i've written in the past or but i've said on television it's all out there right now on an advisor to president trump it says agenda that we're pursuing and that's the agenda that i intend to advance and that's john bolton amongst the most militant whole case u.s. politicians who said that russia's alleged meddling in the us elections was an act
of war look at it this way if trump's a russian agent he just blew his cover if he isn't a russian spy he just pulled the entire world and is likely to get all his misbehaving allies back and live. well for more on these and other stories that go to r.t. dot com my colleague shawn thomas what we with you at the top of the hour with the headlines but for me it's by foot. her. ministries police forces and city administrations of many countries depend on one corporation and another by mike was hoping on the board doesn't come from the eyes of god i'm stunned this is not the guns going through the woods as the three that he got into the city at the last possible bribe them proprietary software you don't know the source code isn't that such a security risk when you have
a black box operating in the public i think microsoft dependency puts governments under a cyber threat and not only that some seem to think off message put us in mall that's what we call self-assembly sensitive zip selling the only one of them will fall into almost like the old miss you all do. with the incident this is the i still. don't miss the all business stop and i'm also still only fun is up in his cards on the phone. with an old mate gives manufacture consent to instant of public wealth. when the woman closest to protect themselves. with the famous larry go round the sun be the one person told.
to ignore middle of the room sick. to leave the room for the real news. the a. long. arm. welcome to the world of party free beer and reciprocal that's the vision of trade that the current american administration wants to implement but it's raising of tariffs and provision of all trade agreements when america sneezes can the rest of the world avoid catching the protectionist bieber well to discuss that i'm now
joined by our been a professor of economics at columbia university and a former indian chair at the g. twenty summit professor and so good to talk to you thank you very much for your time. now professor you have long advocated against the imposition of tariffs and other protectionist measures you believe that india should decrease trade barriers in order to be more competitive but tariffs are not only an economic matter they're also a political and diplomatic tool when somebody flaps you with terrorists should you just turn the other cheek. if there's a difficult. balance. or also take into account the possibility of. protectionism happening against you so simply as. a matter of tactics you cannot sit back so you know if protection is being imposed on you at some point you do have to
react but this is a balancing act roxanna you know because your aunt that is also heard feel. you don't want to go to far now i know that you have been a fairly complimentary of prime minister narendra modi ask he has been of you and yet i suppose he went a little bit against your advice in the reciprocating peace american imposition of steel and aluminum tariffs with india's own judy. in more than two dozen american goods do you think he could have done anything differently without. you know inviting more pushing from the american side but right now we're still awaiting what the indian government has done is to identify these products on which it says that imposed there is some in july so before that there is a standard dialogue to happen between india and the united states so i still hope
that this type of counter kind of the interrogation will bring both sides to actually more same position in which neither side will actually take their action remember that china is talking of determination europe is talking of retaliation any of the united says them countering particularly the fifty billion dollars worth of chinese goods on risk the u.s. is saying it's going to impose tariffs i think that really is going to impact the trading system in a in a major it because that also goes against many of the rules so this is the game turn ugly i understand what you're saying but you know what's also interesting to me is how the trumpet ministration is trying to frame this trade war because they certainly don't do not see themselves as protectionist in fact commerce secretary wilbur ross described the imposition of these tariffs as quote fixing the protectionism around the world and they seem to believe that there are acting
against protectionist on on the part of india on the part of china do you think the genuinely believe in that and do they have a point but this is certainly not. the longstanding this by the united states a thing that longstanding practice by the united states has been the challenge the countries in the w t o or you as a means to an deals liberalization in walking. of the national security clause in the rules is as not been done for a very long time i think you know and clearly also in the various officials have made their statements. there's a clear sense that this is not purely a national security issue so i personally think that this is contrary to the longstanding u.s. practice and therefore this is a new game that the united states in the shifted a bit professionally i think you would agree with me that president trump is
unorthodox in many ways and one of these ways is that he actually seems to be banned on implementing his complaint promises and i think you wrote an article about that previously you know a number of administrations would suggest something on the campaign trail but them would quietly back away from that this is not what mr trump thinks he's doing and i wonder if you believe he has what it takes in terms of the character in terms of the presidential powers in terms of the time left in office to actually change the global trade system in dramatic ways but you know if we if he continues on the current parts. then i think what we would do to this trading system is strongly damage it in a major way. and then the question really begins to get to them is does happen will we be in a position to repair it back sometime. at least in the medium term to longer term
in the administration in the united states of changes because ultimately remember the united states is the country which. give the lead in establishments of the current multilateral trading system and so this is a huge backtracking by the united states absolutely and i don't know if you've heard that but over the past few days there have been multiple rumors about trump supposedly. floating a possibility or walking away from. world trade organization altogether now i just before i went to the studio i heard the denial of god by year's treasury secretary stephen newton even though he did admit that the administration does have concerns about the way w.t.f. is structured and how it is supposedly being used against the united states do you take it this possibility seriously do you think the united states under this administration could actually abandon the w.t. altogether but you know this is difficult to speculate. i would only say that
i hope not i think this is not going to do a lot of good to anybody at all and least of all the united states because. demented the united states. if it. created this system its soil huge benefit not just for the rest of the world but also for itself i mean in the end remember that you know from a poor second world war the united states gave them leave. really kind of created this very video and one trading system which we have to be so it's going to be a you know lose lose proposition now when president trump talks about trade he doesn't only talk about it being free and fair he talks about it being reciprocal in searching this bilateral symmetrical calculus to what has been a multilayered and highly asymmetrical system of global trade do you think
a free and reciprocal can really core exist when it comes to you know trading around the planet you know son of the process be has been a part of our system trading system since the beginning of the get in nineteen forty seven and then afterwards but reciprocity was always used in the sense of that looking even liberalism a trade if you liberal lazio's in saurus a prosody was used to liberal a street. and this is a process be had a bit of it it lacks the element that you know did not go back and commit one for one completely but now it is being turned on its head you know and my view of that process did lead to a huge amount of liberalisation by everyone the developing countries came on board a meeting later but they certainly came on board and you know the developing countries today are incredibly open perhaps less open then the united states but certainly an over them is quite
a when actually so but now they have turned it around and we are saying that and you know if your papers are higher than mine then i am going to reverse my past liberalization which i had actually done in response to your liberal a sufficient and that is a different game you know so this was the exactly the opposite of the spirit of this a process as we have used in the past now so far trump has been able to get his way partially due to his bare knuckle tactics do you think there is any leverage that the rest of the world has when negotiating trade with this very pushy america is still carries a huge dad could that be used as a tool of persuasion. part of the opposition really also has to come from within the united states all saw because you know when you talk of let's esteem an aluminum dairy of their team member of industries that use both steel and aluminum and in so far as. their costs of production are concerned they have not gone up
countries also need to be you know more technical. you know that. the. minimum steve there is announced. reactions of countries were to seek exemptions but instead i think you know the one they have to squarely they end of rather than go for it is star seeking exemptions for individually for themselves they have to work and they do leak and of work against the imposition of that is themselves pressure has to come in more from. the industrial side particularly getting the u.s. industry is to begin to respond as well to the damage they are actually getting and we'll have down the road from the u.s. tariffs now i merican like to say that every cloud has a silver lining and i suppose in this case they may be quite a number of them i know that there is a lot of happiness or grievances when it comes to china its economic behavior not
only in asia but in other parts of the world i wonder if you believe the american trade stance on on china may create any collateral advantages either for india or perhaps for others. i mean in principle you could argue that. if this leads. to the speeding up of china overdrawing from certain markets because remember of automatically with the readers raising in china china is already been drawing from certain markets particularly the labor intensive products not any protectionist. measures by the united states can lead to a speedy withdrawal of the china fronts on the market and that can open up. and it is for the other countries but that's a sort of you know not not the ideal way to create opportunities i believe actually in generally open markets and the opportunities are to be created through competition through better more efficiency greater productivity and so forth now
india also meant a trade deficit with china and its quite significant one around fifty one billion dollars in two thousand and seventeen and while the two countries side an agreement to achieve a trade balance by two thousand and nineteen i think it's fair to say that the chinese have allowed themselves some procrastination on that front do you expect these tensions with the united states to maybe to make beijing a little bit more responsive to issues like that and others simply because it needs the support. in its trade standoff with washington well that's that's very lately to happen i think you know this is this is very normal kind of outcome of letters like these that if china is under huge pressure from the united states then it will be more conciliatory to some of the other countries with whom it may have been less conciliatory in the past prime minister more they had visited china and there was no official agenda but.
