5:04 pm
the police and they conclude lots of. ignore. say leave it where are. they have no any any kind of pain to go on and the very adamant or continuing to oppression protests will continue for the 1st time in. instigate more crop of people very seriously. he did say that the garment crash. systematically i mean they report and use the word systematically but they did systematic rape which are the operation. united states and china approve the 1st phase of a trade deal there were cut tariffs on chinese goods while boosting american farm exports to beijing it follows a 19 month tariff war between the world's 2 largest economies it's a good. 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
5:05 pm
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 trump sold out for a temporary unreliable promise from china to purchase some soybeans we've heard this song and dance from china before yet again president trump company relied on to do the right thing even when his statements were pointing in the right direction now we then heard from donald trump 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
5:06 pm
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 a u.s. agricultural products as well as energy and manufactured goods also said that he 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
5:07 pm
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're 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 in new york city reporting there for us to america broke down the agreement in more detail and talk through what's still too early though to hail any real success here. 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 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 your tears this is exact same thing and trump was like no we demand ip protection we demand rights who aren't american companies in china you need to
5:08 pm
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 tariff 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 about all of them are all back so the sticking point of why this had to happen today aside from the fact that it was also some impeachment stuff going on right so you kind of take over the news 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 trump and his team needed to get something done today is because had that been enacted for the 1st time american consumers were going to start feeling this trade deal in a negative way and he doesn't want that base one isn't is a non deal right now this is a deal for public consumption it's just 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
5:09 pm
be great face to his going in minutes. we will see how phase one turns out. more than 24 hours on the way of his conservative parties on a victory tour earlier to restore it would in the u.k. general election promises visiting north of england to meet his fellow party m.p. 0 stood a lot of labor rivals to secure a big majority of his supporters to. i want the people of the doughty to know that we in the conservative body i will repay your trust 1st of all what are we going to do to rebuild it. to get out of this really going to die did we have a deal ready to go when we get it in before christmas we've just been going over the timetable we could definitely get in before christmas and then we're out for january 31st it was the tories biggest election win in more than 3 decades the prime minister earlier said it gives him a powerful mandate to deliver breck's it at the polls mark the worst result in the
5:10 pm
labor party since the 1930 but north of the border the scottish national party was celebrating a landslide victory which is reignited calls for a 2nd independence referendum in edinburgh and discuss the election and the ongoing consequences now it's time to come out and correspondent and for kim. 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 it's so 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 a defeat for labor based really on lot of people are saying on the question of bricks it brought a chance of winning 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 that if i asked
5:11 pm
we've been going until june 2020 to negotiate this deal it's also going to be ratified of course by the 27 even the 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 along 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 are kicking off even more nationalist parties have done fantastically well in this election i mean. the king of ireland the deputy leader. lost his seat to the new can for the 1st time since 921 says the violent 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. and 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 and this is what she had to say on independence for a friend of the last like a stunning election win last night for the s.n.p.
5:12 pm
renew reinforces and strengthens the mandate we have from previous elections to offer the people of scotland a choice over their 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 office of prime minister pro shots 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 there will be a return to division and uncertainty so he's been 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 you know 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
5:13 pm
independence and in deep trouble in northern ireland as world to deal with that. in the wake of the conservative clean up anyway are 2 you could discuss what it means for the all but inevitable breaks it now. it to all intents and purposes this election in became a practice of election which in itself was a de facto referendum and therefore in that context it is some of the standard say that labor votes and tradition that the dating areas out. west bromwich outside of booming and embrace the conservative party in many large majorities that 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 outsider study from a 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 laborers policies were quite hard left and i think that probably didn't resonate quite so well with as
5:14 pm
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 crucially the political element of it is now resolved. with an offbeat story in from a europe now the german capital of a local c one aspect of everyday life is being iconic but for all the wrong reasons so to counter that balance transport system is looking to consign that it was to his history books but applying for unesco world status no less avenger sepsis ripples. what does the taj mahal in india the much you paid.
5:15 pm

5:16 pm
a fairly different. view of the feet. of anything it's all good for a magician so customer service is not really their thing in 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 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 however he's shown. it's a service rather than a truck. with people already saying yes on the company's website. we hold you in this school right it could indeed have some traction but it could also just be
5:17 pm
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. we'll let you know they get all this so it seems nationally 70 minutes past 1 in the morning he hoped weekends going ok i'm serious story coming up amongst others facebook is accused of risking public health of misleading ads about h.i.b. prevention drugs we'll tell you what one is what people can say among stories ahead . see why way phone. china is the apollo 11. this

5:20 pm
says they don't violate their rules but also the policy states that in some cases they can be removed if an expert organization debunks their claims so we spoke to matthew rose from the age of the other casie organization health who told us in his view facebook isn't doing enough in this case. i myself have been taking the drug for 6 years now and have seen 0 side effects on the drug facebook is promoting an ad that makes it really hard to allow people to have a really powerful and really safe new prevention option their 1st exposure to this pill is that it is dangerous this is misleading false and also only harming public health and the efforts to hiv pandemic globally they want to act like they are the biggest game in town and they are but that means that you have some ethical responsibilities when it comes to certain areas you need to throw more accurate things about health you need to do some more things about news you claim that you

5:22 pm
their poroshenko that's for sure i mean from hungary in perspective at least but of 'd course it would be very important if 3 elections follow diverts and i do hope that he's constructive approach i mean president and asking his constructive approach will help to settle the relationship between the russian federation and ukraine. we are committed to human rights to be respected that's not a question what we don't like is that that sometimes the reference to human rights serves as a basis to. 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 within nato in order to be able to address the new kinds of challenges no question but calling nato brain dead that
5:23 pm
was too much i think i definitely didn't agree with that part but the but i mean these debates should evolve 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 summit was rather constructive everybody was emphasizing the importance of the unity of nato and i think that that was shown very clearly. it's an interesting discussion if you want to see more than just a minute or 2 of a 20 minute version a full version of that's available via the various social media channels known. ok it's 23 and a half his post 1 in the morning that's me kevin are we done and dusted. you hope your weekend is going good for the newsroom for now about 40 minutes have a great weekend were you watching run the world take time to watch the next programs if you will and thanks for watching us international.

5:25 pm

5:26 pm
each other it's time for critical thinking it's time to fight for the middle for the troops the time is now for watching closely watching the hawks. i just seem to see i'm not see the queen earlier on and she agreed to dissolve parliament for an election we've got to the stage where we have little choice since this is a fight for the 3rd of our country the labor party well prepared well organized and utterly determined to win this election is a disease of the public but if you have a deal it's ready to go directly party will not contest the 317 seats the
5:27 pm
conservatives of the last election within 3 months will secure a credible deal with the european union and in 6 months we'll put that deal to you only think well it's a very take just for a state and it's time for his scotland to be made in the country we're at the bottom of the economic league table in the u.k. at the moment but you know we don't have to accept our church we will not vote for the prime minister to prevent other corbin's proposals you would have just one referendum on the e.u. . you know how one. does about what to do live up to the people of this country let's get. everything on this stage with me they were all sounds a little bit like. this election is our last chance to tackle the climate and environment emergency. to be proud of the n.h.s. and its achievements look at putting in 34000000000 pounds not 20 hospital upgrades
5:28 pm
40 new hospitals these documents can see the us system on. the table these cents in. the forest. in absolute taxes we believe in the n.h.s. free at the point of use. to a little metal. will still credit this bill right after. this election is a generation to transform our country. get. done. when. you're now in the position to say that this election has been. the concern there like to thank the people of the system but for putting your faith in me for 12 and
5:29 pm
a half years i will not leave the party in any future general election campaign. has so polarized and been divided device i recognize that it has contributed to the results that the labor party has received to see things clearly do we do it we pull it all the way in this election your voice has been in a bad time to. have 2 times your welcome 2 are going underground. election special after a result that could see the un condemned conservative party in power for the next decade we'll have reaction from across the political spectrum the 1st let's go to oxford university professor danny dorling author of peak inequality and front man of sheffield and reverent of the makers john mercurio campaign for labor in this election welcome both of you professor then you doing 1st what now for boris johnson what can he do to prevent any other corporate politician threatening power
5:30 pm
and privilege like rubin did ever again in this country that'll be a high high priority for him because corbin and the labor party were became of the alphabet they were going to take away the kind of privilege of his wealth they way from for i think it's called is the whole background that really matters the easy thing for them to do is to implement boundary changes we've been to have a new commission to make the seats even even smaller in areas that labor could do better in i mean that's that's probably on the cards but he may be thinking of other things he may be thinking of changing the voting system so you have to go through various stages of id to actually be able to vote and that would harm labor in particular ways it's perhaps the party for him and for the people who backed him in the people who gave the money for his campaign they never want to see the threat of a social democratic left wing.
