global economy. could trump administration has also ramped up pressure on iran withdrawing from the nuclear deal was just the beginning new sanctions and threats of war followed all of that has the attention of those here. maintaining. is in the region. of security interest. the e.u. is committed to the deal as long as you're on the continues to uphold it. outside the confines of the heavily guarded summit site. citizens are urging action on climate change activists went out not only on osaka streets but also on hong kong's where protesters called for support from g 20 leaders for their pro-democracy movement that beijing has already forbidding other countries from discussing the hong kong unrest at the summit. german chancellor angela merkel arrived in good
12:04 pm
spirits and osaka this after a 2nd bout of unexplained trembling in front of cameras led to speculation about her health. her good cheer will have to endure she's due in brussels on sunday to negotiate a new leadership for the e.u. . and we can take you now to the g. 20 summit to osaka japan to w.'s correspondent max hofmann who's standing by max on the sidelines of the g. 20 there are always all these one on one meetings taking place and one highly anticipated anticipated rather face to face is that of course between u.s. present donald trump and russian president vladimir putin how that that go. we didn't get that much substantial information from that meeting just that both leaders thought it was in the interests of the whole world that russia and the united states have a good relation also we heard later that apparently the russian president invited donald trump for a meeting in moscow for may of next year let's see if that materializes and one of
12:05 pm
the most telling situations actually occurred before the meeting at the handshake so when both of the leaders met and one journalist asked donald trump whether he was going to ask putin to not meddle in the u.s. elections that play take place also in 20 twentieth's so trump turned to the russian president and said don't meddle in the u.s. election and that was probably an attempt at humor and will not make this topic go away and won't make this topic go away oh let's talk about climate change another big issue at the summit. climate change is actually one of the most difficult topics if you look at the so-called communiques or declarations of the past summit for example when his ira's already backed the u.s. backed off of the paris agreement and so you had a special paragraph where they said that this was only a declaration of 19 participants of the g. 20 so excluding the u.s.
12:06 pm
it's gotten more difficult because you had elections in some countries and other countries weren't really convinced before that already so in this case what you have is a new brazilian president also naro who is here who demonstrated that he has a big bromance with the american president donald trump so he might not be on board either and we're hearing behind the scenes that this is indeed one of 2 extremely difficult topics to negotiate and we expect the so-called sherpa so the negotiators to go on through this night until saturday morning to try to find a solution here by the way the 2nd topic surprisingly is world trade rule trade and another one of course is iran and now the e.u. says that it still hopes to salvage the iran nuclear deal despite the u.s. unilaterally pulling out of it could those remaining signatories of the deal the europeans china and russia use this g 20 meeting to find
12:07 pm
a way forward. iran is a topic here although not an official topic so it is like you said something for the sidelines and the europeans here are really not in the driver's seat of course they're really trying to save that nuclear agreement but behind closed doors they will acknowledge that the agreement has lost its bite when the u.s. dropped out of it and that has not really changed you can tell by the fact that you are indians have announced they will increase their uranium enrichment above the threshold that was foreseen in that nuclear agreement we don't think there will be much movement there especially because the europeans don't really have the clout to change that but as i'm going to macro said earlier the german chancellor in the end that in a statement to the press she did talk about this for example with the u.s. president right to max i have been reporting from osaka japan thank you

12:13 pm
take on donald trump in 2020 former vice president joe biden was looking to cement his position as front runner but another candidate namely california senator kemal harris put him on the defensive last night ah there's a crowded field for the democratic nomination but did anyone stand out as an affront caught up with some people watching the debate in miami same stage same format same jam packed gathering of 10 democratic candidates in the miami center for the performing arts right behind me but this time 2 men are at the focus of attention from a vice president joe biden and vermont senator bernie sanders who are running 1st and 2nd in most polls. but instead the base of the many watch parties in miami began it quickly became clear that it was neither by ignore senders who grabbed the spotlight it was set up to
12:14 pm
a come along harris who took command of the stage she criticized biden this recent remarks about working with segregation is and it's personal and i was actually very it was hurtful. to hear you talk about the reputations of 2 united states senators who built their reputations and career on the 2nd of the greatest in this country. just characterize my position across the board i do not racist that is not true or number 2 if we want to have this campaign to support civil rights whether i did or not i'm happy to do that i was a public that was the most dramatic moment of the debate repeatedly came he did and we should several attacks and by the former vice president however aims he spoke. from the audience his verdict was to by that i mean that camilla harris is very
12:15 pm
strong so far and so is pete and there i think they're rice and they're definitely right to compare biden example a very competitive edge the candidates are all making their points really well i think that joe biden represents the largest portion of america and i think that joe biden can get someone that is considerably more liberal than he is as a vice president i think that what americans are willing to vote for and one of miller's americans would like to be represented by someone that stands in the middle. by the supporters are convinced that he remains the best hope for the democrats to keep donald trump out of the white house but whoever will get the chance to challenge the president in the end the debate here in miami was only the beginning of a long and tough contest. alexander phenomena in miami and we stay in the u.s. where jonathan ive apple's chief design officer is leaving the company he helped
12:16 pm
shape after almost 3 decades all the news has shocked the entire tech industry some say i have has been as important to making apple what it is today as the company's co-founder the late steve jobs. jonathan ive once said the computer industry is creatively bankrupt because he was referring to the boring gray computers screens and floppy disks back in the day together with steve jobs he sought to make tech colorful and fun he developed the i macin 1988 which helped kick off a spectacular comeback for the ailing company just a few years later the british designer created the iconic design of the i pod the scroll wheel which lets you scan through a long list of songs easily helped apple to dominate the market in 2001 despite not being the 1st to release an m p 3 player back then one of the most challenging tasks was to create the design for one phone one internet device and one i pod in
12:17 pm
a single device the 1st i phone. it had almost no buttons but was simple to use it was an immediate success the design revolutionized the way we communicate and brought an end to regular hands. rives departure comes at a time when apple finds itself at a crossroads i phone sales are falling and apple is turning away from hardware to focus on its services business which includes apple music and i cloud. how this has a lot of people talking and here with me is garrett alpha's now from our business team to talk more about it how important was jonathan eyes on his almost a rhetorical question but is he the man was invaluable for the company he had just joined when steve jobs returned then they really put out the the i am this we spoke about this earlier this colorful beautiful on it iconic piece of equipment
12:18 pm
and then he designed this the i phone still is such an object of beauty and it's it's it's a huge success and he wasn't only designing the machine itself the object itself he was involved with every bit of the design it's what the absolute live what it feels like he was also involved in designing the packaging for apple the apple stores all over the world he was involved in designing that. design then you have headquarters together with architects of course so he had a huge imprint on the company so what will this mean now for apple to lose somebody like that of that caliber. of cause damage apple in a way as they all has to say as well said that his new company will continue to work closely with apple this projects that he will take up a project that he will keep doing while in is owned company but also he says his
12:19 pm
most important legacy is not the i phone and not the ipod and not the the i pad is most important legacy is the team that he leaves behind the team that he helped forge in more than 20 years. apple has 132000 people working for that yet the design team is a couple of dozen people it's very very small and it's it shows how focused on design this company is this this new very narrow body of people who work on the design led by by joining our journey ives. down only one percent in late trading we have to wait for another 2 hours or so when wall street opens to see what investors think about sacco you mentioned his new company that he's going to head now i understand it's called love from what can we expect from that will it be a competitor no no it will be a design office design agency if you will but. he will be
12:20 pm
working on this agency will be working continue to work with apple he's bringing other talent in there as well not using a very important product design a as well in australia and we'll work with him then he will go on to different into different fields things that he probably couldn't do while that apple while moving more into the services direction to find to make more money that aren't carried out 1st thank you so very much. and we turn our focus now to thailand because that country has been marking a year since that dramatic rescue of the boys' football team trapped in a cave in the north of the country well earlier this week the boys and their coach returned to the cave to honor their rescuers and talk to the media their ordeal has not only brought attention to the region but also surprisingly tourism. some pill

12:24 pm
minute nicky to paris race 3 and unselfishly set up white no way simply couldn't cope with england's movements for whites ifa go. after halftime bronze caps an outstanding performance with a goal that brought the coach and superstar fans alike to their feet a rocket to make it 3 nil and getting liniments and going into the semifinals. well england will play either hosting france or the united states in the semifinals while those 2 teams play in front of a full house tonight in paris and tickets don't come cheap well co-captain may get repeat no will likely play a key role for the u.s. team and she's already become a focal point thanks to comments that she made earlier this year she suggests it that if the u.s. were to win as she were turned down the expected invitation to the white house because of the president who now resides there present trump has tweeted his

12:26 pm
thursday's press conference she made only a small concession when it came to her previous remarks. i stand by the comments that i made about not wanting to go to the white house with the exception of the ex but if my mom would be very upset about that i don't think that i would want to go and i would encourage my teammates to think hard about lending that platform or having that co-opted by an administration that doesn't feel the same way and doesn't fight for the same things that that we fight for with the team's quarterfinal match with france will be decided by the tightest of margins repeater says if anything this incident will make them stronger. and before i let you go we're reminder of the top stories that we're tracking for you this hour. world leaders are attending the g. 20 summit in osaka japan and they're facing a host of problems ranging from the u.s. showdown with iran to treat tensions between washington and beijing.
