differences such as on climate change or dealings with iran from various held out the prospect of a substantial change deal between u.k. and the u.s. as the u.k. makes preparations to exit the european union the united states is committed to a phenomenal trade deal between the u.s. and the u.k. there is tremendous potential in the trade deal i say probably to add even 3 times of what we're doing right now tremendous potential i'm joined now by barry gets my ass our correspondent in london as she's near her fellow guests where i understand where a lot of protests have been taking place against mr trump's visit to get trump still not a fan of the european union but he came bearing gifts offering outgoing prime minister made the possibility of a phenomenal trade deal any details on what a phenomenal trade deal might look like. well the count really be details right now
6:03 pm
because the u.k. is still a member of the european union so they can pave the way for a trade route but it can't happen just yet there was no quick movement in the press conference when president trump was asked if every part of the economy should be on a trade before this trade deal and he said yes every part of the economy should be negotiated which is when reason may intervene because she knows that there are some parts of the u.k. economy that very severe very many people feel very sensitive about for example the health service and many people feel that the n.h.s. which is a public health service should be protected from any interference by u.s. companies so there are going to be a lot of details of course in these negotiations that will take years and also controversial interests when it comes to this trade deal so it's not a done deal by any means it's not a done deal by any means but always apparent in that press conference is that mr trump seems to have the upper hand just how badly does the u.k.
6:04 pm

6:13 pm
government but their hopes for economic and social change greater freedom of speech and less corruption were rejected by the regime the chinese government declared martial law and in the early hours of june 4th troops moved in and crush the pro-democracy movement a brutal actions shocked the world for decades chinese authorities have tried to keep the event out of the history books and punish those who commemorate it. but while in mainland china the chinaman crackdown has been a race from the country's history and hong kong memories i think kept alive. tens of thousands have gathered for a vigil in victoria park among those remembering the dead were some mainland chinese who had travelled to hong kong especially for this event it's the only region under beijing's jurisdiction where mass commemorations can be safely home.
6:14 pm
i have with me now old burger from the markets or institute for china studies a think tank good to have you here with us on this quite momentous anniversary you obviously let's start with hong kong who we the footage that we just aired of because chinese authorities quite interesting really do tolerate it tolerates a commemoration services in hong kong but not on the mainland is that a sustainable policy so hong kong exists under an arrangement that's known as one country 2 systems where one hong kong was handed over from the british and $997.00 the chinese government basically promised that its political economic and judicial system wasn't going to be touched for 50 years so hong kong functions according to different units than the rest of the new land which is why we can see demonstrations there that also in the past couple of years we have seen attempts to slowly chip away at hong kong autonomy and i guess one thing that's currently to
6:15 pm
debate a hong kong as amendments to hong kong extradition ordinances that would greatly facilitate up to extradite people to mainland china and if that worked come to pass i do think that would have a quite chilling effect overall on activists on hong kong now on sunday the chinese defense minister defended the crack down as i'm quoting now correct policy what i wonder. is that 3 decades on why doesn't the chinese communist party just make amends and recognize that you know this was probably not its finest moment. they have the communist party of china has made this such a coup or off its off its master narrative of its existence like you know the protests were organized by people from the outside and if you mislead misled people on the inside and the crackdown was vital to ensure stability and economic growth and one thing is if one becomes part of china isn't that great at admitting it was
6:16 pm
wrong and to reverse something that's maintained for 30 years so vehemently and such a such a central part of its identity of its mess america is highly unlikely and the other thing is sometimes we think you know with the receipt of the c.c.p. and we think of a very secure they feel very safe the truth is they have a very concerned about social movements any kind of protest and china so i don't think they will be averse of their verdict on and on protest because they would also be furious they were all fueled up as could encourage people to actually protest people's party so you think. yeah but again it's such a it's such a central part of their self-identity that i would be incredibly surprised if they were to reverse the verdict unfortunately oberg from the markets or institute for china studies thank you so very much greatly appreciate it and one of the most prominent critics of the chinese government since 2 men is the exiled artist ai wei
6:17 pm
wei who has lived here in germany since 2015 he creates art works on a monumental scale and right now in the museum distilled earth is staging an exhibit creations. it's the biggest retrospective of ever seen in europe the new exhibition and shows his most important works of recent years. $60000000.00 sunflower seeds out of porcelain each one handmade an individual but they all seem to dissolve into one mass an emblem for chinese society everything is art everything is politics is an exhibition that delivers on its name. in the last years i way way has gone from a dissident chinese artist to an international celebrity the cameras crowd in to get his picture but he counters with his own lens his own view when i moved to
6:18 pm
germany many expected him to become more critical of beijing but he also turned the criticism and europe fighting for more acceptance for refugees who come here if not only britons than you but use humor writers. anybody who has no freedom of speech will be grateful if somebody else client to save the lives of those people. eyes 2017 film human flow followed stories of forced displacement and migration from afghanistan and iraq over the mediterranean to europe some see his efforts as heroic others accuse him of overstepping the balance between art and activism. also in the west this always saying art far sake which i think is a lie artists narrative are sick artists always consarn a lot of the human dignity. freedom of expression expression and
6:19 pm
the rights so those very. solid foundations are co artist become a superficial and a very decorative. in 2008 an earthquake in china's sichuan province left more than 70000 people dead including more than 5000 children were away traveled there to see what the government wasn't saying he collected victims' names began investigating the collapse of poorly built school buildings he collected mangled reinforcing bars and had them straightened back out. 164 tons of these steel bars. are on display here laid out in boxes to resemble coffee the mixture of memorial and indictment. and now to ukraine country's new president lot of resilience he is making his 1st official visit of brought to
6:20 pm
brussels a move his team says underscores his commitment to closer ties with the west. talks with the european commission president. also met with nato chief yes stoltenberg at the top of the genders bring peace to eastern ukraine well 13000 people have been killed there in fighting between government troops and russian backed separatists. are let's get you more now on mr selenski visit to correspondent teri schultz is in a brussels of for you good to see you terry now can you tell us about the reception that mr selenski received. yes i mean many people may be asking if you elect a comedian is he going to be taken seriously on his foreign trips abroad but selenski has been quite wise in his planning he has acted like a serious president and it was very smart to make his 1st foreign trip to brussels
6:21 pm
where his citizens want to be members of both the european union and nato and that was something he reiterated today in his meetings with both european commission president john klobuchar and the nato secretary general stoltenberg president selenski made clear his country's future is here in the west and that was very well received by the chiefs of both of these institutions now his main priority is to end the war of course in eastern ukraine can the e.u. and nato play a role is there an appetite there for them to step up their involvement in that conflict. well both the e.u. and nato already play a role there's no getting getting out of this both france and germany are signatories to the minsk accords which are designed to ended the hostilities and get the heavy weaponry taken out of eastern ukraine out of out of don bus they simply just haven't been effective yet nato provides more than 40000000 euro's in support in trust funds to ukraine for internal reforms for improving the quality of
6:22 pm
ukraine's defense of itself and also is providing more military support in the black sea simply just nothing has worked so far without the willingness of moscow to get its forces out of eastern ukraine president selenski said he was going to be asking for more support from brussels to end this war but it remains to be seen if he gets any further pledges and again without a commitment from the kremlin this war is not going to end regardless of how much support he gets from the e.u. or from nato well on a related note terry ukraine pursuing a pro western path isn't likely to go down well with the kremlin our leader is worried about blowback from russia if they encourage t.f. into forging closer ties with the a west because we remember last time that didn't go well. well president poroshenko president selenski predecessor also had ukraine on a firm path toward the west so that's not really any different they do have
6:23 pm
a deep and meaningful partnership as it's called with the european union they also are on the path to nate eventual nato membership if certain reforms are taken so that isn't really different than under push and go now president putin may have hoped that things would be different and he certainly put a test to president selenski soon after the election what he did was he offered passports russian passports to citizens in dawn bus saying that all of you eastern ukrainians come in be russian citizens now president zelinsky handled this rather coolly and here's where a sense of humor does come in handy he said look if you have a russian passport you can be arrested for peaceful passports you don't have freedom so you will offer passports to those suffering russians so certainly he's held up well so far under kremlin pressure and we'll see how that continues but again a pretty successful 1st trip for zelinsky here in brussels right teri schultz reporting from brussels thank you. and the president is trip is also being closely watched by
6:24 pm
the more than $2000000.00 displaced people who have fled their homes in the region and the w.'s that nikolay traveled to a monastery that's still offering refugees a safe haven some 5 years after the fighting broke out. at the hips can its monastery until 5 years ago this was a place where the people of the donbass region came to pray and enjoy the views but when conflict broke out in 2014 city here just quickly became a place of refuge for thousands fleeing the fighting for a time refugees outnumber the locals 10 to 1. 5 years on and some of those refugees are still here around 200 people have found home in the monastery taking the place of pilgrims who once came here in large numbers it's mainly the elderly and single parents who haven't been able to move on alone a coalition of donetsk is one of them must embody. all of
