8:04 am
a monument that we deeply regret the allegations each of them is being or will be investigated i want to emphasize that the needs to introduce a state of emergency arose from a situation of violence and not peaceful demonstrations as some have tried to clain the police and they keep a lot of. you know. it's a little bit. they have no anti any kind of pain to go and i'm very adamant that he doing to the president of the protests will cheat you for the 1st time in. these to create more problems for people very seriously. he just said that the government passed by really systematically i mean the report that he used the word systematically but they've the systematic approach of the operation to. the united states and china have approved the phase by fate.
8:05 am
trade deal they want to cut chinese goods while boosting american farm exports to beijing it follows a 19 month trade war between the world's 2 largest economies here's artie's killa. well rumors have been circulating for the past few days that some kind of deal was in the works to resolve the trade disputes between the usa and china the idea being that the tariffs would be scaled back in exchange for tens of billions of dollars of agricultural products and other things being purchased from the united states and some concessions on china's part now in response to these rumors that we heard the democrats speaking up this was chuck schumer reports say president sold out for a temporary unreliable promise from china it's a purchase some soybeans we've heard this song and dance from china before yet again president trump can't be relied on to do the right thing even when his statements were pointing in the right direction now we then heard from donald trump
8:06 am
speaking up about how this was simply fake news this is what he said the wall street journal story on the china deal is completely wrong especially this statement on tariffs fake news they should find a better lead but just a few hours afterwards we heard china come forward with an official press conference announcing that phase one of the deal was on the verge of being implemented this is what we heard from the official chinese press conference. the agreement will create better conditions for china and the united states to strengthen cool peroration economy and trade property monies unresolved economic and trade disputes all differences and promote stable growth of china's economic and trade relations given the don would. now trump spoke up afterwards saying that essentially china had agreed to a number of structural changes and would be purchasing u.s. agricultural products as well as energy and manufactured goods also said that he
8:07 am
was hoping to begin work on phase 2 of the agreement but he would want to do that immediately not wait until 2020 this trade war has been asking lading between the united states and china sense june of 28 teen there's been an escalation of tariffs many many different you know regulations being put in place and different products being targeted but it seems that some kind of resolution is in the works so we now have an agreement of some degree so folks we waiting to see what happens next there has been hope before that the trade war was going to be resolved and those hopes of then been shortly afterward disappointed so what comes next it remains to be seen but at the moment many are optimistic that it appears that things are moving forward. or team very good group done the agreement and talks through why it's too early to heal any real success is this deal going to end up being no different than what these 2 countries had to begin with it's like if i take something away from
8:08 am
you and then i give it back to you i didn't really give it to you exactly and this was actually the exact same thing that was on the table back in march if you remember the trade deal that was on the table back in march like we said we will buy more ads you take back our tears this is exact same thing and trump was like no we demand ip protection we demand rights who are american companies and you need to restructure your government to not handle private corporations he demanded all of these things and now china was like no we're not going to do that and look at the terms of phase one here it's so vague and all of those things are taken out the only thing that are actually legitimate on the table are literally purchases and rollback of tariffs so the journey is one of those to roll back as you say are we did we roll them all bartz or not all of them not all of them are rolled back so the main sticking point of why this had to happen today aside from the fact that there was also some impeachment stuff going on right so you kind of take over the news cycle but aside from that as of sunday about $160000000000.00 worth of new tariffs are going to be added to chinese goods and the reason that is needed to get something done today is because had that been enacted for the 1st time american
8:09 am
consumers were going to start feeling this trade deal in a negative way and he doesn't want that one isn't is a non deal right now this is a deal for public consumption it's to say face really the crux of it is face to face 3 and right now in order to save even more face trump said phase 2 is going to be great face took on the eminent danger and we will see how phase one turns out. right now more than 24 hours on boris johnson's conservative party is a victory tour after their historic win in the u.k. general election the prime minister is visiting the north of england to meet his fellow party. labor rivals to secure a big majority he spoke to supporters today. i want people to know if we bother you i will repay your trust. it is.
8:10 am
everything everything everything we do everything i do is your prime minister will be devoted to repaying that trust and 1st of all what are we going to do to really did. it get i don't usually get it i did and we have a deal ready to go. for us this week to secure their biggest election win and more than 3 decades on the poll mark the worst result for the labor party since the 19th thirties north of the border the scottish national party were celebrating a landslide victory which has ignited calls for a 2nd independence referendum in edinburgh kevin on discuss the election and its consequences with correspondent daniel hawkins the polls are predicting a tory majority you throughout the election campaign but not to this extent i mean labor's been decimated losing your key seats in the northern heartlands in the middle of all or many of them seats which voted labor for 3050 even close to 100 years so this is very much been
8:11 am
a defeat for labor based really on lot of people are saying on the question of brics it went in with a very clear message get bricks it done it was very clear very simple it resonated with those areas with those communities that voted to leave and we've heard michel barnier say no way we're going to get a trade deal signed with britain by the end of 2020 when boris johnson says it's going to be well that's the thing i mean no trade deal of this size or complexity has been negotiated with the e.u. ever and he's saying that we're going to come out by genevieve the 1st we've been going until june 2022 to go ship this deal it's also going to be ratified of course by the $27.00 member states if that doesn't happen the prospect of a new deal bricks that come this time next year is that very much of a table spoke in the works and on the line what's going to happen on the border between northern ireland or the republic of ireland that's still not sorted up plus there's the whole scottish question ok. off even more nationalist parties have done fantastically well in this election i mean speaking of oil and the deputy leader. lost his seat to the new can for the 1st time since 1921 this is the violent
8:12 am
nationalists now outnumber unionist s.n.p. again a whole different kettle of fish certainly no disunity in scotland they were very clear they wanted to remain in the e.u. the s.n.p. has capitalized on that and made massive gains 48 seats one percent increase last night we saw nicholas 30 jubilant dancing in fact when the leader just wins and lost her seat this is what she had to say on independence referendum last like a stunning election win last night for the s.n.p. renewed reinforces and strengthens the mandate we have from previous elections to offer the people of scotland a choice over the future that mandy says that it is for the scottish parliament nor a westminster government to say whether and when this should be a new referendum on independence the office of prime minister and saying there's got no intention of allowing a friend in the near future that you've results the 20. has to be respected and
8:13 am
there will be a return to division and uncertainty so he's been on an unequivocal that's not a priority that's not going to happen s. and p. they're already preparing to sit down next week and publish what they describe as a detailed democratic case for letting scotland aside and whether there should be a 2nd independence referendum so boris johnson isn't going to have it easy he may have his hands untied he may have lost the opposition of his own m.p.'s of labor he's got a difficult negotiations coming up and he's got the question of scottish independence and in big trouble in northern ireland as well to deal with that in the wake of the conservative clean our party u.k. discuss what it all means for the or but inevitable breaks it. it to all intents and purposes the selection in the end became a backseat election which in itself was a de facto referendum and therefore in that context it is somewhat a standard to say that labor voters in traditional areas such as. west brom and should such a booming and embrace the conservative party in seemingly large majorities than
8:14 am
than in the leafy suburbs the sorry i don't see a referendum taking place now you know if it's a case of ever wanting to rejoin the e.u. it will be as an absolute a study from the position of great obliqueness breck's it was probably because syces factor in most voters' minds but there were a few other issues that i mean it's fairly obvious that the labor's policies were quite hard left and i think that probably didn't resonate quite so well with as much as the public as they had hoped some of the policies were a little bit a little bit extreme to say the least so that was probably part of it but i think yes the predominant issue was was practice it and the conservative party presented the way forward the certainty of the resolution and the end to the torment and frustration and confusion that we've been suffering for the last few years of course it doesn't mean that the process is finished but i think the 1st stage and
8:15 am
crucially the political element of it is now resolved. switching gears in a surprise move the burlington transport authority has applied for unesco world heritage status although the company jokingly admits that it sometimes though and for overcrowding rude service it seems the transport system is the only place left in they are up at least changing city where berlin is still better than. has been taking a closer look. what does the taj mahal in india the much you paid. transit system have in common well nothing yet but they may soon be sharing a spot on unicycles heritage list. who is on time and could decide to try to be called the must see him have in mind is. done by law not to preach to the public the berlin transit authority has applied
8:16 am
for a world heritage status and wants to be included on the same list of some of the world's most fascinating architectural monuments but what makes the berlin transit system so special the appeared in the stock page design is to decide. it certainly convenience and even runs 24 hours a day on fridays and saturdays but if you've ever been on one of their subways you'll realize that the stuff could be a little bit frosty. the education. fair the difference. it will be. somebody saying it's all good for marriage so customer service is not really their thing and mention the overcrowding and the long delays so we went around asking berliners what they think about their transit system and whether it should be included on heritage list it's one of the oldest so i think you have
8:17 am
to save it and to use it it's been a great transportation to use but i don't know if it's exactly. right not because it's an it's a quite old system in and in germany the ground system and. underground stations look like a huge because here it's i don't think it should be. easy. it's a service rather than a truck. with people already saying yes on the company's website. we hold you in their school right it could indeed have some traction but it could also just be a ticket to promote the city's public transit network so remember next time you're angrily to a bus by your driver or you're already limited space is being invaded on one other subways this could all be part of a world heritage experience eventual slips us for artsy. in a way with the see what happens about one more world news ahead of this summit for martin including facebook is accused of risking public health or misleading

8:23 am
we are committed to human rights to be respected that's not a question of why we don't like is that that sometimes the reference to human rights serves as a basis to. interfere into domestic issues of other countries on an ideological basis on a political basis without any good reason. there should be some at the station mechanisms launched with the nato in order to be able to address the new kinds of challenges no question but calling nato braindead that was i mean too much i think i definitely did in the in the review that part but the but i mean these debates should do or look and we have to understand that there are leaders who like to say let's say things which can be media ties easily we have to understand that we have to live with that now the the atmosphere of the of the
