6:01 pm
brazil's president says they're treating the country like a colony our correspondent is live in brazil. i'm sorry kelly welcome to the program french president to manual mccrone and us president donald trump have held a joint press press conference to conclude the g. 7 summit in france world leaders had been holding 3 days of talks in the town of be over it's now president trump said that he's open to meeting soon with iran's president under the right conditions to try and resolve tension over the 2015 of wrong nuclear deal president mccrone also adding that the u.s. and france have reached a deal regarding french plans to impose a digital tax that could affect global tech giants trump opposes the tax and have threatened retaliatory tariffs. it's
6:02 pm
a turn out part of what president said about his talks with trump on issues relating to iran. there are 2 very clear things wrong and i think iran should never have been a nuclear weapon and it situation should not threaten the stability of the region and france has taken a lot of different initiatives and i've always informed president trump on them to be able to get the technical means to move forward because the decisions that the us taken in the last few months have put a lot of pressure and put us in a situation where it is indeed necessary to improve the security situation of the region wrote has sort of in turn said but nothing there is absolutely set in stone and we will have to move ahead on together to find. an outcome. of action to those comments and more we are joined from directs where did i use gareth mattis is standing by and. despite the efforts of these 2 presidents
6:03 pm
to really present a united front or run it seems to have been a major source of difference at this summit what should we make of mark wrong end of trump's closing statements. well given the amount of conflicting messages we got from from the american president this was as positive as it did get on this 2 and a half day meeting here in maine pierrots it was quite a bit of a surprise clearly that he is willing under the right circumstances to meet with rouhani and also that the french president announced that will happen he is ready to meet with the american president which was prior to that not all that clear so in a sense you can say that the efforts of my call to ease the tensions here on that subject to make create an atmosphere as the german chancellor put it where dialogue is
6:04 pm
possible those efforts did pay off you have a guarantee while you did sort of have that renewed openness between trump and leaders in iran when it came to discussing this nuclear standoff trump also adding that you know if they don't agree to being a good player it will be met with quote very violent force should we take that seriously. well i think we should always take seriously what the american president says unless he adds that he means it more or less it's always difficult to see exactly what message the american president sends out overall i think on the summit you used you can summarize or to take away from from that meeting that it has been a positive meeting or well let's put it this way it has been more positive than anticipated by most commentators many expected a lot of worse things even
6:05 pm
a diplomatic task to feed from this g 7 meeting the french president did a lot to prevent that and in a number of ways he has achieved that on a number of other fronts however you have to say clearly that did not work out yes there is an initiative now $20000000.00 help package for brazil but when that was announced the american president did not attend the session when you look at world trade yes there is a lukewarm agreement of the american president but no firm commitment to retake negotiations at the duty oh so a lot of loose ends and let's talk a little bit more about that trade front because the u.s. trade war with china was another big topic at the summit as you highlighted there it's impacting the global economy president trump said that chinese officials wanted talks let's have a listen and then get your reaction. and china has taken a very hard hit over the last number of months where they've lost 3000000 soon be
6:06 pm
much more than 3000000 jobs their chain is breaking the prayer chain is breaking up like nobody's seen before and once that happens it's very hard to put it back together you understand i think they were very much want to make a deal and the longer they wait the harder it is to put it back if it can be put back at all so i believe they want to do a deal that tariffs of hit them very hard in a fairly short period of time the united states will have collected over 100000000000 dollars in tariffs. how far has this summit gone to clear tensions between the u.s. and china. it's really hard to say given the conflicting messages we had to in recent days the way things stand now president trump says deal is closer than ever and that the chinese are ready. to negotiate that you know there was that his pressure has paid off but we have to see what we make of that because after all
6:07 pm
the rest of the g 7 would like to change the international rules regarding china so that in the future china can no longer dump cheap products on the world markets a president trump is not completely on that page at least he has not commented he has also not contradicted the french president when he said look we have to change international rules and we have to work on the reform of the w t o but we haven't heard that from the american president garrick at the start of the summit the host president to 91 micron warning that expectations should be kept low just want us to what was concretely achieved in the past few days. are concrete example is really the aid package for the amazon a $20000000.00 heavy or light if you weigh if you want to say because after all given the g.d.p. off of the 7 biggest and wealthiest nations that is not
6:08 pm
a lot of money so we have to really see what comes out of it also of about the environmental initiatives that is to follow once the fires are extinguished how much money how much muscle will the g. 7 put into reforestation another example is that digital tax you have mentioned and i've listened closely to the interviews here when they were pushed on whether they actually made an agreement that would prevent president trump from slapping tariffs on wine in retaliation for a digital tax that michael has put up against the likes of tech giants of amazon them to google when pressed whether they have made that rule. greenmount they they they gave a fuck the answer so they didn't clearly say yes we have made that deal diplomats told me that they worked on the summit and yes you can say that is already better than. the stalemate that they had before on the issue so yes talks are going on but it hadn't been completely results and so it's not really that
6:09 pm
a result as michael would have liked it to be thank you so much our correspondent matus joining us from barrett's france at the g. 7 summit we appreciate it. so as we've heard as garrick has this highlighted there the g 7 leaders have agreed to a $20000000.00 fund to help amazon contrarious fight the wildfires which are raging in the rain forest brazilian president and auto sense of the military to fight the blaze this after coming under international criticism for allegedly doing little to help stop the fires he's criticized the g 7 funding plan saying that the 7 host emmanuel micron was treating brazil like a colony meanwhile the firefighting efforts continue. after weeks of raging fire is still they'd burn the smoke and choking its way
6:10 pm
across brazil affecting the lives of millions of people. who probably could be no it's not good it blocks your nose there's a lack of air it's difficult to sleep because it's hard to breathe. the fires leave their mark where ever they go destroying want ever is in their path. after an international outcry of super zillion president bolsa naro decided to send in the army. military planes have been pumping vast amounts of water across the amazon state of rhonda neo in the north of the country. soldiers have also been offering back up to struggling firefighters in this region and in other states. but with almost $80000.00 fires registered across brazil this year alone it's
6:11 pm
a monumental task. protests across brazil including here in rio de janeiro of pointing the finger at president bolsa naro and his government lead blaming them for allowing mining and farming in the rain forests areas that before merely protected this was the muzzle defending the amazon is defending human beings humans depend on the amazon we are part of nature we are nature so it's impossible not to defend it is cool to see little of. the amazon fires have also spread into belief here. proof if anymore when needed that this on folding environmental crisis knows no boundaries. authorities in hong kong are warning that the situation in the territory is becoming quote very dangerous the comments came after police fired warning shots

6:15 pm
president donald trump and french president emmanuel mccrone have concluded the g. 7 summit in france with a joint press conference the 2 presidents held talks at the summit as positive and suggested trump could soon meet with his own wrong in counterpart to discuss tension over the i'm wrong if they are. more news coming up at the top of the hour i'm sara kelly in berlin thanks for watching. how close are tauruses to come out and say this is a. 100 german street on d w. t. how does thailand taste it. correspondent susan hum and host hurriedly. make sure the various flavors of the
6:16 pm
exotic creasing of our food fusion and so i am the challenge for you. tasty tried to. start september 1st on d w. nick kids lives in kenya it's the city which has come to symbolize the rise of the far right in eastern germany the demonstrations took place a year ago now people in kenya it's an across the german state of saxony going to the polls to elect a new state parliament. which i still haven't decided who to vote for in the parliamentary elections. it may be a state election but it's attracting interest across germany the right wing populist a.f.d. party hopes to come out the big winner saxony must decide which direction it plans
6:17 pm
to take and so does nick at c.s.k. . nick has been doing martial arts since he was 8 years old he specialized in m.m.a. all mixed martial arts. martial arts has probably contributed greatly to my self image it's given me a lot of self-confidence in dicey situations where you're inclined to panic or the adrenaline starts pumping. the panic or should i that doesn't happen so much now because i just know the situation better if i can't. nick can't c.s.k.
6:18 pm
is 28 years old 5 years ago he opened his own national art studio he knows the german m.m.a. scene well and he says it's closely connected to the neo nazi saying especially in eastern germany. help i'm sure the worst case i've experienced was at a competition in soko where people always booed the foreigners during the finals the crowd chanted who rock short for the right wing group hooligans nazis racists. this video is an ad for the well known right wing m.m.a. event camp dinny blowen or fun of the needles it's an annual meeting for right wing extremists in saxony disguised as a sporting event nick and his friend target know all about fighting the need which right wing parties use to attract new voters. blame of the trouble is it's a recognised and consciously public right wing event they're not stupid they promote
6:19 pm
it like a normal and a fight but what doesn't belong to the sport is the showing of symbols. of playing for example in. the hangar that they hang up flags which really belong to the right wing scene. the problem is when the problem is they mix their politics with the martial arts. that's the tala titian's make appearances and try to manipulate people the mentions for money put a lot of you hear that politicians come and make speeches fishing for votes imaged for nick was born in kenya and spent most of his life here he's encountered nazis outside the martial arts scene too even in school he had to be careful who he made friends with the. by law. in my youth i naturally had a bit of contact with them at school to shorten the lunch and you had to decide on your attitude towards them done. history one of them was really into grated into
6:20 pm
the neo nazi scene so my attitude towards him was clear. in my no one he could never entirely avoid contact with neo nazis in his youth he did try to stay away from them he takes us to the place where a german of cuban descent was stabbed a year ago he is to get thinks this is the memorial for daniel h. who was murdered here on august 26th 2018. or more the volta his death made headlines across germany so did the demonstrations afterwards around the col marks monument one of the city's landmarks everybody. every candidates in 20 a chain just the suspicion that asylum seeker killed daniel was enough for sex and he's far right seem to take to the streets be unhooked and other politicians from the i have to be much side by side with neo nazis they chanted nazi slogans and did
6:21 pm
hitler salutes and attacks politicians and foreign looking passes by the police were outnumbered and other the well and. nick kids yes he says the demonstrations changed his city since then it's become more polarized the different political camps are more opposed than ever. before and the tone encampments has become more aggressive for its divided groups of friends even my own family a bit of this for. 30 instance nick and his grandparents often don't see eye to eye . i know there's a dish today they've come downtown to have a visit with him he gets. off. then you can it's when it was still part of communist east. many much has changed since then and they don't feel safe here anymore. and it's $1000.00 arts and i can't go out anymore at night i don't dare go into the city that's down it wasn't like that before don't beat
6:22 pm
around the bush it's simple everyone says it's the asylum seekers then if we had more law enforcement and police the feeling would be better but it's the hottest defeat of bessel a diploma leaves are getting huge reinforcements are going to reverse that i have something against people who've committed crimes having to be kept here to comply with some international legal practice in internet service. script when it's not possible to deport them to vendors and foreign images these are. those are the ones who are a burden to us. since the here in the. us is skipped and i wasn't of course there's no problem with foreigners i grew up in a system in a world that's totally globalized and the only functions through globalization that people say throw out all the foreigners but our country couldn't survive without
6:23 pm
them. this week so for me it's not a question of with or without foreigners things can only function if we work together with none affronting on. nick really likes to talk with his grandparents especially about politics but he finds this sometimes intolerant though he'd never say that to their faces and in front of the camera they're all a bit reticent to hold the feelings on this. big this issue prejudicially what do you think about the political direction changing the f.t. getting more powerful and giving the far right a boost perspectives and to show. that but that also means that the people on the left will also get more organized and that would likely provoke more riots that would see all night after the election because what if the a.f.p. comes in 1st protests will increase not only will people protest more they're unlikely to do it peacefully which will lead to rioting i'm pretty sure of that says you. nick and his friends enjoy
6:24 pm
a barbecue none of the my f.t. supporters and numbly chemists has a far right problem they say last year's demonstrations were exaggerated by the media they're more worried about the city's image shows i only learned about what happened from the media apparently people in chemist's a stamp for next to no reason there's a bit of latent fear them this case has been exploited by all sides. and so it goes to show us what it was for the present in the media as if everyone in the demo was right wing but that's not how it was said the vast majority were simply concerned this finds session i found it really shocking that even in america they were reporting on kemet some what was happening here people must decide for themselves how much importance to place on it that's probably why so many people myself included are afraid to let our children play alone outdoors. which was once
6:25 pm
totally normal. given what you know as a freedom fighter something i feel the reporting of what happened here in camden's was exaggerated posted that it was all very extreme right wing this. for me what took place wasn't just an extreme right wing event this fall for me i don't like what's become of the water 65 candidates is image has been damaged. i promised us for so tossing that i didn't interest the media at the time and it doesn't interest anyone now at the meet in the months and it was a little hit skin. just ahead of the state elections the parties are making a last minute attempt to woo the vote is. that the social democrats stand nique talks with candidate how quickly they see this ken do you think that chemists really has
6:26 pm
a problem with racism or is it somewhat exaggerated if this is what is your opinion . being viewed as a standard that i think there's no german city that's free of racism i believe that we have a big problem with how we deal with racism but if only there are cities for instance rostock and mecklenburg for palmer which had problems with it for a very long time and also made negative headlines things time but they tackled it head on in that as happened when i get the feeling that in kenya people avoid the topic because it's uncomfortable they're afraid it will harm them just to name it but this silence only makes things worse for modesty's especially. that silence is expected to benefit one party the most the i.d.f. day saxony is the right wing populist stronghold so they've also put up a stand down town the a.f.c. candidate he tells me it's the foreigners not the neo nazis who are the problem. hello. i'm nick thank you my nick i'm stephanie i'm running for parliament.
6:27 pm
but i thought how come it was kim that's i come from chemists was born and raised here what 3 main statements does the f.t. have for camden these if you came into the supposedly of the biggest problem here in the city is with immigration and that's a given so you hear it from every citizen and they're also unsettled because we're simply not used to that. type of life from east german times yes historically but but we had vietnamese cubans etc before going to trial right i know and that was good. but at the time they were in principle people who came here for professional training and then they went back home and took those skills with them and we have to look after our own people 1st and those of worked and paid taxes here for years and from what i'm told on during the discussion the a.f.p. stand is surrounded by demonstrators carrying brightly colored umbrellas it's
6:28 pm
a protest action to show that kenya is a colorful and diverse place but the h.d. members don't take the protests seriously the atmosphere is still quite relaxed yet the incident shows candidates is divided. i'm sure i'm i. as a thanks for the talk there were some good arguments made but as i said a few opinions that just don't fit with my world view and isn't my baby. nick kid c s he won't vote for the a.f.p. that much is clear but he's afraid that the right wing populist could triumph he longs for a chemist's that's governed by tolerance and respect the way opponents treat one another in martial arts. i tried i. thank i.
6:29 pm
urged. to. the best of. i'm not laughing at the bit i guess sometimes i am but i stand up and with that. think steve winter german culture looking at the stereotype clad in here thinks he's a country that i don't. need it seems ridiculous drama down to me it's all about who am. i right joe join me for meet the gentleman from v.w. . post. and on demand.
6:30 pm
