china has responded with its own terrorists after the trumpet ministration impose duties with thirty four billion dollars on chinese imports beijing is accuse washington of launching what it calls the largest trade war in economic history china says the u.s. is that trade towers have set the stage for a long showdown between two of the world's biggest economies the bride joins us live now from beijing rob so not surprisingly china has already responded. that's absolutely right daryn the confirmation came at the ministry of foreign affairs daily briefing the spokes person confirming that china is now issuing its own list of tariffs in response to the american tariffs that have already been slapped on it was expected it was also promised by china that they would meet these terrorist from the u.s. head on imposing exactly the same level of tariffs on exactly the same dollar amount of goods it also follows earlier strong condemnation from china of the
12:02 pm
u.s. move the confirmation that these u.s. tariffs are being put in place came noon beijing friday here in beijing and within a couple of minutes the ministry of commerce issued a statement roundly condemning the move saying that the united states is guilty of the worst trade war possible and also promising to fight back. china has always promised it will match exactly u.s. tariffs with its own list thirty four billion dollars worth of goods will be affected from farm products to automobiles chemicals and medical equipment as those u.s. products become more expensive china has been looking for other countries to supply them china has been trying their hardest to diversify suppliers of energy of agricultural products especially when all the heat focused on saudi being on china

has been boosted its investment in a lot of other unconventional countries for soybean exports such as russia in so doing say critics of the u.s. policy beijing has been forging deeper trade links with u.s. competitors there will be no winners the question is will there be something lose more than anybody else right now though it looks like the united states is doing the opposite of what it intended it is in essence rallied the entire world against it and u.s. tariffs could ultimately hurt u.s. firms as well as chinese that's because far from being a straightforward take for tatts an easily winnable trade war it's complicated for example some of the chinese semiconductors the u.s. is putting terrorists on use microchips that are designed and made in the u.s. so those companies will also be hits what's more some of the chinese firms targeted

12:05 pm
a stock market that over the past couple of weeks has been seeing steady downward pressure in part because of the fears of a trade war and you can expect business nerves to be jangling further and also you can expect markets to tumble much more should we get into a second much bigger round of track tariffs or it's a rubberized then beijing rob thank you well and decades head of research on international trade at china policy he says there's still uncertainty in beijing of a trump's motivation for starting the trade war. a few weeks ago they thought it was about tariffs but this is not really affecting china it's not punishing them then they thought it was about china's industrial policy but the tactic for that is all saw not making sense and then they thought it was about a power game of influence with new trade rules in the future and that's also a lot of make sense because then the u.s. will team up with their allies and now they worry if this is even more serious if
12:06 pm
this is an attack on china's institutions the communist party china's culture their way of life also on the chinese side they're not really worried about the effects on their overall economy but they are concerned about certain interest groups certain cities who might be exposed to these export industries now their answer is to increase domestic consumption diversify say to other countries and restructure their economy which has been their plan for many years already anyway so this trade war doesn't change their. national strategy in thailand one of the divers helping with the rescue of a boy's football team trapped in a cave has died the former navy seal lost consciousness and a lack of oxygen on his way out of the cave he'd been delivering oxygen tanks to the troubled boys and their coach rescuers in a race against time to get the team out with monsoon rains forecast for the weekend

12:17 pm
this amounts to a surrender the government is going to regain control of opposition held areas and turn off province but of course russian military police are going to be supervising the whole the whole process but we also understand from the opposition is that at least six thousand fighters rebel fighters along with their family members they're requesting safe passage to rebel controlled areas in the north of the country according to the opposition the russian military in principle is agreeing to this the number of course may change but those six thousand fighters and their families they do not want to remain. under and live under president bashar assad's rule they do not want to reconcile with the state and they're too scared to stay behind in fear of retribution so it seems the two sides are their views really are getting there is more common ground in the past negotiations there failed but like we
