1:01 pm
welcome to the program i'm marrying in evanston north korean leader kim jong un has arrived in singapore for tuesday's highly anticipated summit with u.s. president donald trump he's been holding talks with singapore's prime minister lieschen long and his official residence trump is expected to arrive in the city state shortly tuesday's summit will be the first time the north korean leader has met with a sitting u.s. president it's expected they'll talk about denuclearization and possible efforts to formally end the korean war. well earlier handing your take of the german council on foreign relations joins me in the studio to talk about these developments he said although both trump and kim are going to be in singapore today the meeting
1:02 pm
isn't likely to take place immediately. i think it has been a kind of race to be to be there on the spot until trump it was an opportunity to slip the face of the other g seven members believing that summit earlier than than expected writes a trump is due to arrive later today and he's described his upcoming summit with the north korean leader as a one time shot at peace but yet other times he's been more cautious saying that it's only kind of a preparatory get to know you type of meeting so what kind of a summit is it going to be it has to be clear that this meeting itself is one of the greatest concessions that the americans could make to the north koreans they are the kings that it took youth and really has has tried for generations really to be seen as. a negotiation negotiation partner and i leveled with the americans and wanted to talk by letter really most of the time so this is historic development an
1:03 pm
opportunity of course to to use this concession to pressure more from from kim that kim would give up the nuclear weapons which are in the way life is insurance for him is unlikely though and so i see that trump is seeing this as a risk that if it goes wrong he wouldn't want to repeat it all right hang they could do stay with us i just for a moment be talking to you again shortly now the singapore summit has overshadowed the end of the g. seven meeting in canada but there was an unusually acrimonious and to the annual event which brings together seven leading industrial democracies after two days of tense talks all seven signed a final communique seemingly finding an agreement on the need for a rules based trade but then president trump withdrew his country's endorsement with a tweet is the first time a g seven gathering has ended without
1:04 pm
a joint statement. is the german chancellor lecturing the u.s. president is the us president being belligerent whichever way you look at this photo posted on instagram by angle america's office you can't ignore the tension. that tension was evident before during and even after the g. seven summit ended in canada donald trump made sure of that he'd already angered his allies by slapping tariffs on steel and alan minium imports from canada the european union and mexico and he used the g seven meeting to demand better trade deals for the u.s. while warning against retaliation over they tell you to make it a mistake because you see we have a tremendous trade imbalance so when we try and bring our piece up a little bit so that it's not so bad and then they go up right the difference is
1:05 pm
they do so much more business with us than we do with them that we can't lose that you understand we can't listen and with that trump left the show five hours early but even with his warning in mind justin trudeau still felt obliged to promise his own retaliatory tariffs. i highlighted directly to the president that canadians did not take it lightly. that the united states has will forward with significant tariffs on are still an aluminum industry particularly did not take lightly the fact that it's based on a national security reason that its kind of insulting. those comments infuriated president trump he tweeted from on board air force one that he would no longer endorse the joint summit statement and threaten to impose even more tariffs
1:06 pm
he said pm justin trudeau acted so me can mild jewing on g seven meetings only to give a news conference saying that u.s. tariffs what kind of insulting very dishonest and weak. the canadian prime his office has sought to play down the frak but with the threat of an international trade war a step closer it doesn't look like any of these leaders have much to smile about and henny baker from the german council on foreign relations of here with me to talk about this now so donald trump abruptly retracting his support for the joint statement at the end of the g. seven lashing out at the host country canada is this kind of disarray a sign that this very important annual gathering. is falling apart when it is historic to have so much such a level of conflict in that important meeting. i would say the g.
1:07 pm
seven is a very important institution it has forty years on its back so it is it is obvious that these strongest countries with the strongest economies they can make a change in international relations and global governance and they will book keep on trying but this meeting will be an example of how not to do it. now having i'd like to talk to you about this photo from the summit that's gone viral published by the german government showing the german chancellor on the america will sort of with their hands on the table leaning in sort of an imposing position towards donald trump. there's been a lot of chatter about this photo what do you think it tells us i think it's a clear sign a whole the arguments were carried on most of the other countries were critical of what. trump was doing especially the europeans because of the trade issue of us were possibly more cautious but sitting down. blocking the other
1:08 pm
way he is isolated and he knows that and i think it is a weakness that he doesn't want to look so isolated so he did hate this photo well it should be mentioned that the u.s. published its own photo in fact from the very same moment we should say the very same scene but from a different perspective where the german chancellor is not visible at all and in the center is trump himself with a very sort of haughty kind of smirking look on his face is this a sign really of a different narratives that we're seeing about the same situation it's all communication and it must be clear trump sees himself not as a president to defend the g seven but to defend growth and jobs in america and this is the signal he wants to send not so much to the other g six but to his only electorate to the people in america but things are more complex and what he could
1:09 pm
have achieved in being cooperative or in the go shooting about the terrorists i mean that would have been much better for america i think. should forget that the europeans and the americans have been negotiating about abolishing all tariffs in the transatlantic trade and investment partnership that he was the trump dropped so he could have could have had a better. or could have initiated negotiations without much bombast and it wouldn't have looked so ugly well despite what was visibly a tense summit trump himself insisting that there wasn't a kind of acrimonious atmosphere and after all he did agree to the joint statement initially what was that statement so the statement said some make sure i'm so important growth is how important this is to create jobs and help those who are most vulnerable. a few words about global governance but when it came to global climate and the my mental protection there were paragraphs saying america wants
1:10 pm
that continue to to export fossil fuel and the europeans and the others want that so the whole document gave a big picture. about the discord at the meeting but it also made clear that most of the g seven actually have the same agenda to follow all right having to take a from the german council on foreign relations many thanks indeed for your in with a. well russian president vladimir putin has said he's ready to hold a summit with u.s. president donald trump if washington is willing and made the statement at a meeting of the shanghai cooperation organization in qingdao china's president xi jinping hosted world leaders including iranian president hassan rouhani and indian prime minister narendra modi the iranian leader said he appreciated efforts by beijing and moscow to maintain the nuclear deal that the u.s. pulled out of last month's. and now to some of the other stories making news around
