3:50 am
talks on the fires engulfing the amazon rainforest and emanuel lakhani is hoping to deescalate tensions between the u.s. and iran president trump pulled the us out of the nuclear deal and re-impose sanctions but often last year's tense meeting in canada expectations are low that much will be achieved our diplomatic editor james bays reports now from barrett's. with the global economy teetering and some warning of a worldwide recession the 7 leaders gathering here may not look it but they're almost certainly worried the host emmanuelle macro on the us president donald trump seemed relaxed as they sat down on the terrace for lunch but in addition to the china u.s. trade dispute currently rattling stock markets they have their own problems a new french tax will target u.s. tech giants and trump has threatened to retaliate taxing french wine imports to the u.s. this though would immediately receive an e.u.
3:51 am
response according to the president of the european council i will. then trying with. gentle in the domination for many reasons. and after the 3rd by france. if the u.s. impose a star if on france the e.u. will respond in kind president is about to finish 5 years in one of the e.u.'s top 2 jobs a term dominated by one issue one that could also cause economic problems across the continent breaks it to his quorum the new british prime minister he could go down in history as mr no deal as he landed boris johnson didn't respond directly but he did focus on his country's future trading prospects this data global trade i'm very worried about the way it's going the growth of protectionism of terrorists
3:52 am
that we're seeing the u.k. thrives mightily on the open out we're looking for a trading nation that's what we're going to be promoting breathing is good for the world trade wars talk of recession breaks it it's all a very depressing economic picture the one thing that could bolster the markets would be unity coming out of this g. 7 summit but don't expect that the french presidency of the g. 7 has already said it's not even seeking a final communique this will be a meeting with discussion but a very unlikely to have any decisions james pays out his era barretts than cheering there is an economist at the center for international governance innovation he says the u.s. china trade war may well escalate beyond tariffs. the u.s. has been holding up reasonably well but china has appears to be slowing down very very much now if you go by the. not by the g.d.p. statistics but by electricity usage the chinese economy is is almost
3:53 am
a stall speed right now and we also have the uncertainty that's been hanging over the global economy is undermining investment markets can hear and all these are price increases but they can't handle all out destruction of established business models so at the moment this is pointing to an accelerated steep and intensified conflict it's going beyond a tear of war or french police a 5 water cannon at and t. g. 7 protest as staging an unplanned launch the demonstrators rallied on the france border towards bio and just south of the summit then you and barrett must protest as throw stones at the police and take back to gas canisters. well as that gathering gets on the way thousands. in an authorized demonstration in the nearby town at hand a call for urgent climate action and accuse the leaders of causing the inequality
3:54 am
and sascha bottler was that. the march began in the southern french border city of die thousands of protesters including some from the yellow face movement who walked to spain to demonstrate against the g. 7 summit in berates protesters say global leaders and their capitalist policies are responsible for many of the world's problems so good to see it up it's just begun to perkasie that the theme of the summit is the fight against inequality when it's them where the source of food inequality and inequality is increasing because of them it's a false cheer provocation. although thousands of police have been deployed to god against violence during the summit officers of the protest kept a low profile french and spanish or origins have allowed this protest on the border because it is 12 kilometers south of here it's an odd scale resort where g 7 leaders are beginning their summit the idea is to keep the demonstrators as far
3:55 am
away as possible from the international research one of the main issues of the g 7 the climate change but few people at the protest believe that would be progress some say the fires burning in the amazon rain forest yet another example of politicians failing to protect the planet about the whole most of us is in a confused they're obviously not interested in climate there are lots of nice promises but they rarely keep them they're not conscious that today is the big emergency we're on the edge but we just keep going. the french president who's hosting the summit boards frauds to take the global lead on climate and he's called for emergency talks on the amazon. guarding the amazon we will not only launch it cool but also actions from all the world powers present here and in partnership with amazon countries for investment there 1st to fight all these fires but also to help brazil and other countries affected. most protesters say they're fed up with
3:56 am
what they regard as the elites politicians who are out of touch with the lives of ordinary people the image of leaders from the world's richest countries getting down to business no luxury hotel in beer it's is unlikely to change their opinion. al-jazeera the french spanish border. or as you heard there president. brazil and other south american countries control fires in the amazon rain forest and the growing international criticism about as brazil's president charles an arrow has ordered the military in to help it says aircraft and 44000 troops will be made available from the state of one of the worst affected regions daniel shaima reports . forest fires happen every year in brazil but it was the sheer scale of this year that shocked the world the so-called world's longest room fire strong criticism firstly from with the brazil that the rest of the world forced
3:57 am
president. to respond. forest fires happen all over the world so this is no reason to impose international sanctions brazil will continue to be as it is now a country that is friendly with everyone and is responsible in protecting its amazon forest. but he's been accused by many of creating the very conditions he is now trying to control but there's a defiance from the president and resentment from his supporters that other countries feeling was ill what to do. yes. i don't agree that other countries should come here to brazil we don't go to other countries to upset them you don't see brazilians there causing problems only working to see money home to invest here this is pioneering country distant from brazil's made population centers or so naro had a message that resonated here. i'm 63 years old and i'm never seen a president as honest as this one who confronts the problems and says what has to
3:58 am
be seed is defending brazil these are people who came to tame the forest to cut a bird to carve a future from what they consider to be a wilderness this particular blaze may not be huge but is one of tens of thousands burning across brazil some control some not some illegal some legal what's clear is that few will be investigated but the consequences will eventually be felt around the world. the fires are being put out but what's left is this back and devastation which will take many years to recover. 70 percent of the state of the year has already been developed the forested for lucrative timber then burned to create land for cattle rearing and sawyer production the rest is up for grabs and no one it seems is stopping them at the moment if you burn the forest you are backed up by a president and then you do exactly as you want to do because you know nothing will
3:59 am
happen and that's a problem and we have seen statistically when this law enforcement fires in deforestation goes down when we don't have it it goes up the fires are still burning but will bolster naro bend on the be heat of international pressure or bow to the ambition of some his strongest supporters that there are ground on your state north west in brazil. chile's capital and its outskirts are suffering that worst drought in decades the government has declared an agricultural emergency in half of santiago as districts this year has been one of the driest the country has faced in 6 decades the government is also concerned about the growing impact of global warming on its economy chile is the world's biggest exporter of copper but needs large quantities of water to produce it in december is due to host a global conference on climate change pro-democracy protesters in hong kong have thrown bricks at police who deployed take gas in the latest round of violent
