12:00 pm
the damage they are actually getting and we have down the road from the us terrorists now i'm merican like to say that every cloud has a silver lining and i suppose in this case they may be quite a number of them i know that there is a lot of happiness or grove and when it comes to china it's a canonic behavior not only in asia but in other parts of the world i wonder if you believe the american trade stance on on china may create any collateral advantages either for india or perhaps for others. in principle you could argue that. if this leads. to the speeding up of china in drawing from certain markets because a member of automatically with the read is raising in china china is already even drawing from certain markets particularly the labor intensive products not any protectionist. measures by the united states can lead to a speedy withdrawal of china fronts on the market and that can open up
12:01 pm
opportunities for the other countries but that's a sort of you know not not the ideal way to to create opportunities i believe actually in generally open markets and the opportunities are to be created through competition through better more efficiency greater productivity and so forth now india also meant a trade deficit with china and its quite significant one around fifty one billion dollars in two thousand and seventeen and while the two countries signed an agreement to achieve a trade balance by two thousand and nineteen i think it's fair to say that be chinese have allowed themselves some procrastination on that front do you expect these tensions with the united states to maybe to make beijing a little bit more responsive to issues like that and others simply because it needs the support. in its trade standoff with washington well that's that's very lately to happen i think you know this is this is very normal kind of. outcome of.
12:02 pm
that if if china is and he was pressure from the united states then it would be more conciliatory to some of the other countries with whom it may have been less conciliatory in the past prime minister more they had visited china and there was no official agenda but he spent about more than two days in china. spent quite a bit of time together so you know clearly that is it is. a moment in their direction how far can it go i think you know one has to know the details of what is being talked about behind the scenes well and i think one of the news that was leaked after that informal between prime minister and president xi was that china actually pledged to increase its imports of indian sugar so i guess we can take that as an indication of china trying to you so with its relationship and its trade with india both literally and figuratively anyway professor we have to take
12:03 pm
a short break now but we will be back in just a few moments stay tuned. for a world cup twenty eight team coverage we've signed one of the greatest goalkeepers of all time but there was one more question by the way is going to be our coach. guys i know you on the us he's a huge star among us and the huge amount of pressure you have to the center of the problem we do and we will go through all the great grid to get you out of the rock at the back nobody gets past you we need to get down there we have to go. alone. and i'm really happy to join the for the football. an infielder world cup in
12:04 pm
russia. this special one was also appreciated me to say the review p.r.t. team's latest addition to a procedure. but. generally speaking mr trump's unilateralist notably the unilateralism which we saw with regards to iran which we also saw with regards to the paris agreement regarding climate change which we saw with regards to the american embassy in jerusalem. a lot of real decisions challenge from my point of view the quality of our transatlantic relations. welcome back to worlds apart with our been a professor of economics at columbia university professor you've been mostly
12:05 pm
complimentary of the government for its efforts to lower inflation and spur economic growth but you faulted it for reverting to the policy of import substitution and sort of privileging domestic consumption of exports why do you think the expert model which comes out under so much pressure in china but also in aba countries like germany like a number of european countries would be good for india at this point of time. i'm an international baby economist i believe in competitive advantage and therefore i believe that you know you should countries should specialize in the products where it's called or. return it and then import the products which produces it i have costs when we do import substitution we are doing exactly the opposite we are going to. think the imports of what we the mystically cannot produce at no cost and we are. therefore encouraging higher cost
12:06 pm
production. that will eventually also impact our exports. it really goes against the competitive advantage principle well i understand your competitiveness argument but i think there is also you know a security argument there if you don't maintain a production capacity for basic goods aren't here exposing yourself to higher geopolitical risks because you know that sanctions and you know the denial of trade has been used as not only as a geo political tool but also as a tool of regime change do you think india is totally immune to those kind of risks but. that if that india actually mean walked this was not in response to any terrorists against india. or this article actually those are there is this a the two to introduce you or me for imports of solution reasons saw you know. the context was actually quite different but also coming to your
12:07 pm
specific question more squarely the world is much larger you see. one country imposes sanctions it doesn't close the rest of the world for you and therefore you still have the rest of the world with which you can still trade now speaking about sanctions correct me if i'm wrong but from what i understand the issue of u.s. tariffs is of secondary importance to india because it is now faced with with the sanctions related to the capsule legislation the countering america's adversaries through sanctions act reach for example applies directly to russia india would be sanctioned as the law stands now india would be sanctioned for doing any trade or any significant trade with russia when there especially when it comes to weapons and yet india has been trading with russia when it comes to weapons for many many decades. do you think do you have any concerns that india may be punished
12:08 pm
for what the united states sees as allegedly russia's bad behavior. and should diplomacy cannot disregard any contingency and in any possibility so one has to take that into account having said that. remember that india is also the buyer of very large volume of. military equipment from the united states saw this game can be played by two sides dimity if it is played by. refusing to forces a sale of. equipment it hurts both sides but at the same time you know india is not a small company country it is a very large country and you know going forward it's going to be a significantly larger country you know in another ten years and we're five six trillion third largest economy in the war and therefore i think the united states
12:09 pm
will also have to take into account. if such move is taken that india can potentially also stop buying the military equipment from the united states now i know that the u.s. secretary of defense james mattis has asked congress for a national security of waiver for india simply because they understand that india is in no position to. implement this legislation because seventy percent of its weapons as far as i know are of russian origin so you cannot change doubt overnight it's a huge investment that was made over many decades and yet from what i had to stand medicine request to congress has been denied where do you go from there i think the unit ultimately you know the long standing tradition of the united states is that it is a pragmatic country and in every law how it is implemented is extremely important there are gender levey's out there. and working around any law and so i mean i
12:10 pm
remain completely hopeful that the united states does see india as a counterweight to china in asia region and be you know the very effective change of terminology to indoor pacific. from asia pacific is indicative of that recognition so i personally remain quite optimistic that even we found out so that the. access to the russian equipment you know in terms of maintenance and so forth is maintained i know that india has a long track record of defying american sanctions i think it did that back in one thousand nine hundred seventy four in one thousand nine hundred eight do you think it's going to be easier this time around especially given that it's not only india but i think also vietnam turkey indonesia a number of countries that seem to be going to have with. russian weapons purchases and seemingly defying at this kind of legislation see among all these countries
12:11 pm
india remains the largest and so it leads you can the most important and so any serious impact that happens on india's ability to actually defend and be a part of the. work that the united states wants to have. is that consideration is extremely important so i personally still think that the united states we need to find a way our own deal is a solution not you know on the margins of me getting back to it but it cannot be implemented in a way that is seriously actually makes the ability of india to be a part of this defense bill what the united states wants to have now i personally see it as a bit of a paradox of the american power structure when the defense policy of the world's second most populous country it reaches india is being held hostage to some so. you
12:12 pm
know in new jersey or a club i wonder how is it received in india the fact that any given country would. attempt at least to tell you who to do business with and who not to do business with. you know is as countries grow bigger. they see that. the orly's a quid pro quo kind of place and certainly prime minister more they has built many many bridges in his forty years. you know he has gone to some fifty five different countries to build his bridges but he is also tough i think in national interest if push comes to shove he does assert will assert we saw that you know that. india stood his ground on climate change treaty disagreement so i think you know this is a game of cooperation but with. national interest that at the center of the policy and also independence of india is known for and i think loans
12:13 pm
from all the is done and fabulous job of. doing that partly by his outreach i think you know it is been an unprecedented leader in this respect you know in terms of his outreach to the entire global community of leaders now the cats at legislation relates not only to russia but also to iran to reach in two thousand and seventeen that was india's third largest supplier of crude oil and the station on iran is a little bit different because the administration the trauma administration is actually how band on implementing those sanctions you've been talking about the prime minister modest ability to reach out but do you think he will stand ground when it comes to iran as well because the trumpet administration seems to be very serious when it comes to its intention to cut iran off international trade but some we need to be found out but currently you know what it translates into is much higher price of crude for in. and for everybody else unless we begin to see much
12:14 pm
less it's a place coming out of russia and maybe also some from the united states as well. so that's a challenge. india has had obviously longstanding relations with iran but this is a road that india has been. on before. when we have to see what kinds of compromises have to be made but. clearly you know that that also is a challenge for india now from what i understand it's not only about buying oil from iran but it's also about big infrastructure projects like for example the international north south transport corridor reach new daily fees as an alternative to china's belden growth initiative and a key to success of that project is the. port in iran so we are talking here about not only you know the current indian economy but it also it's a geo political ambition it's regional ambition do you think there is any scope do
12:15 pm
you think there is any possibility for india reconsidering its role in the region given that the costs of dealing with iran are now so much higher but this is very i think prime minister we need to negotiate with the united states as well to see you know of these other projects are infected. as far as i understand you know currently the sanctions are related to trade but if they also came back the cooperation on matters like these on investments this something that given need to negotiate and. is in its own master. and they have no doubts that the prime minister is very much up to the task now you've been so far very polite and. diplomatic in your characterization of what the united states and certainly india but let me push you just a little bit further because especially when it comes to these infrastructure
12:16 pm
projects it seems that. it is actually in the best american interests you know india trying to project itself as a as a rival of china as a counterweight perhaps of russia as somebody who wants to bring stability to afghanistan and central asia all of that is supposedly in america's interest and yet it seems that the united states is only doing it more difficult for india to country that it's actively been courting do you take that as the united states simply not thinking through all the consequences or perhaps not caring about those consequences yet. there is certainly some element of that that you know the consequence of the perhaps not being thought through hard enough but some of it may also be posturing you see the president president drummed really sort of you know coming from the business world believes in. cutting a good deal for himself and he has to have spent the past presidents his
12:17 pm
predecessors were not tough enough so he's trying a different paths but i'm sure he's also a rational individual. and is after the interests of the united states so he is obviously has the most difficult balancing act to perform as you say when you push other countries such as india who are potentially your allies. can address an impact your own objectives and so therefore it is a very difficult balancing act and i have no doubt that you know in the end. some more sensible position. or the newark liberty i'm really. would. hopefully be able to reach at the minimal cost certainly the united states is trying to change the existing it will bring him so when it goes i think the means to be seen well professor we have to leave it there really appreciate your time
12:18 pm
today our viewers can keep it. conversation going on our social media pages as for me hope to see you again same place same time here on the worlds apart. or. rather the as he should be. one of the people so he'll be in luck because. that's pretty much what i mean i well me and nothing. but the policy of.

done then all so far but there's so much more to come back to what we saw on saturday the day one of this crucial part of the championship so france take on argentina a great game but a big shock as well messi didn't make much impact and let's face it this could well be his last world cup and of the day then it was france for argentina three so we got from south going through to the quarterfinals you know a big game on saturday you are quiet and portugal before any of this many of course we're hoping to see messi meet the other star player christiane over now there in the qualify. those that are going to happen any more in fact they're more likely to make to the poll going home as christiane and his team endure a crushing defeat to europe why. going through to the quarter final score in that game to want to the south americans on saturday then sunday is going to be no less dramatic gave the first of the day will see the unexpected clash the host russia and the pre-tournament favorite spain that kicks off at five pm moscow time after that even continues with the denmark and croatia clash croatians the course of so far won every game in that group stage but where these winning cars are going to go on the scoreboard we'll know a little bit later on it's all part of the fifa world cup twenty eight hundred
