it's the matter to al-jazeera. donald trump arrives in brussels for a spending showdown with nato allies we look at the facts about who owns what. hello and welcome to our ages era life and. dennis also coming up china val's retaliation for the latest us tiris threat in the escalating trade to speech . schoolmates of thailand's rescued boys celebrate outside the hospital where doctors have revealed all are in good health plus. after a twenty year wait france can again dream of world cup glory a city reaches
a final in russia. and president trump has arrived in brussels for what is shaping up to be a contentious nato summit he insists his fellow members all paying enough for defense earning a shop rebuke from the e.u. which says he should appreciate his allies. well donald trump is suggesting that members of the alliance don't pay their fair share of the nato budget even that they owe money to the u.s. here's some of the facts in twenty fourteen nato members agreed to stop cutting their military budgets and work toward spending to the center of their g.d.p.'s on their defense by the year twenty twenty four so it wasn't a direct contribution to nato nor a payment owed to the united states president trump is right that most of nato has twenty nine members all spending less than two percent there is falling short
include the richer countries like france germany and canada nato members also contributes to a shared budget based on the size of their economy is now america having the biggest pays the most at just over twenty two percent germany france britain and italy combined pay nearly forty four percent let's go live now to brussels and nato headquarters our diplomatic it is a james bays is there as ever james whatever donald trump enters a a multilateral forum we know there's likely to be trouble. likely to be trouble likely to be far works on that central issue i think of nato spending and defense spending of course the president referring to it as contributions to nato and as you've explained it's actually a percentage of each country's budget that they spend on defense and the point
being made here by the nato secretary general quite firmly but also diplomatically is that nato leaders agreed in south wales when they have a summit in twenty fourteen to increase their spending and that plan was to do it over a ten year period and that ten year period isn't up until twenty twenty four and already many of them have increased spending so he says things are going in the right. direction he's also said that it's not just about the money you've got to look at the other things that nato allies do for each other and i mean he's quite been quite pointed hasn't he as specifically about germany and angle america referring to her in a speech last week as as merely angular and that as we as we the alluded to has brought about a fairly stern rebuke coming from donald tusk president of the e.u. council talking asking him to remember who his friends are.
yes i think it's interesting that that came from the president of the e.u. he's not the host of this of course bartz twenty two of his twenty eight e.u. countries are also members of nato he can perhaps speak out in a way that the nato secretary general cannot speak speak out and he is normally a more controversial character but yes we'll have to watch the relationships with all of the nato leaders but i think you're right to focus on chancellor merkel because there is a prickly relationship with president trump watch too though how he gets on with one leader he seemed to get on very well with which is the canadian prime minister justin trudeau they obviously fell out at the end of that g. seven summit last month and angry exchanges from president trump as he flew away from that summit on his way to singapore on twitter let's see if they've made up
when they meet again here all right we're told he later james thank you very much. now we got some breaking news coming from afghanistan it seems at least two people have been killed by a gunman who have stormed a government office in jalalabad a gunmen in the plural sense i think is what we should be saying the gun battle is going with the afghan special forces their armed men entered the office of the education department and then set of exposes as i say this is a developing situation and we will keep you right across it here at al-jazeera china says it will retaliate if the u.s. imposes a new wave of terrorists on chinese imports on wednesday washington announce a possible ten percent charge on two hundred billion dollars worth of goods from china beijing called the move on acceptable and warned it would be forced to impose countermeasures if the u.s. goes ahead with these tariffs ajor brown has more from beijing. well last week the
united states targeted china's industrial sector going after telecommunications and high tech now the united states is homing in on chinese consumer products saying that thousands of chinese food products beauty products pet food chemicals and tires will be subject to a ten percent tariff if there is no breakthrough in the current standoff between china and the united states in total we're talking about some two hundred billion dollars worth of chinese products on wednesday morning china's assistant commerce minister reacted he said that china regretted this decision by the united states saying that it harmed not just globalization but also the world trade organization saying that china wanted to cooperate with the united states and remained committed to improving the investment climate for countries companies that want to come and do business here in china in the meantime china is looking to build and strengthen
alliances with other countries that have also fallen out with the united states over trade just this week china's prime minister has been in germany talking up trade deals with the germans and of course next week china will be hosting the e.u. china economic summit and this is a summit where the theme is very much going to be the need for free trade instead of protectionism. so the world health organization says yemen's port city of her data has now registered the highest number of cholera cases in the country the saudi a morality coalition is backing a government offensive against sooth the rebels for control of this crucial red sea port about fourteen percent of cholera cases across the country came from her data since the outbreak began in april last year more than a quarter of the city's population is also suffering from malnutrition the world
health organization says the conditions and who did that even before the escalation of the conflict has been some of the direst in yemen where there is registered the highest incidence of suspected cholera cases around fourteen percent of reported cases countrywide since the start of the epidemic in april two thousand and seventeen and diptheria two hundred nine suspected cases in addition there have been two hundred fifty two suspected cases of measles. to thailand now with the doctors say twelve boys in their football coach were rescued from a flooded cave have each emerged from their ordeal about two kilograms lighter but otherwise they're in pretty good health. to the ground outside the hospital where they're recovering to celebrate. the rescue effort which ended on tuesday they'd spent seventeen days trapped underground. when most of the boys were beginning a high white blood cell count because of infections so he gave me antibiotics we're playing to scale back and prevent the predication we're still giving those who have
lung infections for the next seven days this is the period of time when we will need to take care of them. all right let's go live now to our correspondent in chiang rai. the good news continues the boys are in pretty good health and we're also finding out much more detail about this book heiress operation that was undertaken by so many people from so many different countries. well yes definitely i mean it is quite unprecedented and for journalists here marty the rare good story we can report on but what makes it exceptional is how multilateral this collaboration is spanning more than evolving more than forty countries with working with thailand creating a global solidarity that's where specially in a time of great political upheaval not just in southeast asia but all across the country we're talking about countries with economic trade tensions with thailand with border disputes with thailand with economic issues and water based i mean
south china sea issues these things did not matter it didn't matter about this conflict with them what mattered right now is that they were able to work together and this is seen to be marked in as a test case for how humanitarian collaboration's can be done in a time of manmade or natural disasters martin and the prime minister himself has come out and thanked everybody involved because there was as i say a very international effort when it came to this specific kind of of expertise that you need to have conducted this level and conducted it safely. well yes definitely and he named so many countries who were involved of course thailand australia did the great part about it like i said all other countries members of our c.n.n. are looking at this now and that and their experts believe that this is going to be a test case there's going to be air framework borne out of this where the where future humanitarian agreements can be done there have been
a lot of negativity over defense or humanitarian agreements specially with other countries involving within the assy and but that can change now given just how effective this has been of course in thailand this is quite incredible because every single mother or sister can relate to this story and of course all across the globe so this is what makes it quite special i really good story i said that we can report on at best case for how humanitarian collaboration's can be done and of course right now what is critical in the next coming week or so is that the physical condition of the children we were told we were told earlier that they will be able to be reunited with their families possibly in the coming days. thank you very much and one other note to that another good notion that one of the french football is at the world cup in russia to his team's victory over belgium. he tweeted this victory goes to the heroes of the day well boys you are so strong
and so that must've really made these boys happy of course a part of the football team and we'll have more on the football much later in the program. coming up next is the way that then the last survivor of a german underground cell awaits the verdict of a trial. the rise maybe ever in hazy but the anger remains protesters call for the resignation of the president. welcome back there's not a great deal of change in the weather across europe searching for western heiresses dry and fine the big moment to the winds coming from the north london there twenty four degrees powerset twenty five but those temperatures on the rise again over the next few days and no sign of break down the fine weather for at least the next ten days central parts of europe looking pretty unsettled some heavy showers are likely
here so the scenarios generally draw and fine and then you see the temperatures coming up across the u.k. through the low countries and into france as we head across the mediterranean to north africa we're looking at a fine conditions but a breeze coming in off the mat so temperatures in cairo only thirty seven degrees and then through into service day not a great deal of change expect the game generally northerly winds just blowing on to the coast of north africa into central africa and we have some pretty heavy showers extending quite a long way nor snow and soon as you move through from was it a thursday might see some showers developing across parts of sudan and certainly chutney chamonix or on the risk of seeing a few showers some heavy rain across parts of west africa and also the circulation giving the risk of some dust could be quite poor visibility at times into south africa generally fine for cape town house for across the region plenty of sunshine with highs of twenty three expected in durban.
it's a long from home in haiti to school in the dominican republic crossing national borders and cultural barriers to tennis on. the town and. discovering filmmaking talent from around the viewfinder latin america follows a young man who will stop at nothing to secure an education. the crossing on al-jazeera. let's have a look at the top stories here at al-jazeera this morning pictures just in from
brussels where u.s. president donald trump and the nato chief again stoltenberg as you can see have shook hands now they may look fairly relaxed here but things are pretty tense mr trump is standing firm on his assertion that nato partners don't pay enough for defense compared with the united states. they've been celebrations in thailand after all twelve boys and their football coach were rescued from a flooded cane doctor say the twelve boys and their coach have lost weight but are otherwise in good health. the world health organization says yemen's port city of her data has registered the highest number of cholera cases in the country about fourteen percent of cases came from the port city where a saudi m.r.c. coalition is backing the government against the rebels. now a verdict is expected in around the next half hour also in the trial of the last survivor of a neo nazi group that went on
a killing spree in germany in nearly two thousand well the trial has lasted five years and there was a public outcry when it became clear the group was allowed to operate for years before law enforcement was able to connect the dots on that came reports from munich. five years p.r. to shaffer has been on trial for her part in multiple murders that shocked germany acting in the name of an organization inspired by the nazis the national socialist underground for. the case against ship is that she was a willing accomplice in a three person cell targeting members of the turkish community. the first victim was killed here on the outskirts of nuremberg in september of the year two thousand and. it was a thirty eight year old businessman who ran a group of flower stalls at a nearby market at the time police struggled to find a motive for his killing. but we know now and the shim checks death was the start
of a killing spree that would touch seven different german cities between two thousand and two thousand and seven claiming ten lives three people were killed in nuremberg two were murdered in the bavarian capital munich the other five in cities outside bavaria eight of the victims were from the turkish community in all cases the victims were shot in the head at close range but what this map doesn't show is that after the last killing it took the authorities almost four years to track down the cell and then only after two of them over bernhardt and lords had carried out an armed robbery being cornered by the police and then shot themselves before they could be arrested it fuelled accusations of incompetence by the authorities with some people suggesting some officers might have colluded with the n.s.u. families of the victims say their ordeal has been made worse by the time it took
for the trial to happen. the murder why did the murderous choose my father i can't and won't simply believe it was a coincidence four hundred thirty seven days of investigation and his questions were answered i have no closure because i have the feeling that not everything was done that could have been done because i'm sure that other accomplices are still walking around out. after her fellow conspirators deaths there are to shape pandas herself into police in two thousand and eleven during her trial she rarely spoke in court except to deny being a member of the n.s.u. to disapprove of its actions and to express her regret for not having been able to prevent the murders the reality for her though is that a guilty verdict will mean she spends the rest of her life behind bars dominic kane al-jazeera munich now the un humanitarian chief mark simply anyang the north korean capital to get a better idea of the situation in the country now finding out exactly what's going
on is pretty difficult given that the regime is notoriously secretive aid agency care international that is described north korea as the world's most underreported humanitarian crisis and what we know is that ever since the famine of the one nine hundred ninety s. getting enough to eat is remade a major problem. now the un believes that forty one percent of the total population is around ten million people are undernourished and the last national nutrition survey taken in twenty twelve found that chronic malnutrition affects almost a third of children under the age of five meaning that they are underdeveloped because of lack of nutrition and food production that's been hampered by the worst drought for eighteen years and that was just last summer now al jazeera recently visited north korea you may remember james a diplomatic editor he was there and these are some of the pictures that he came across the leaders of the one to want the world to see this is what the north
korean. regime wanted camera crew to see as you can see it's a fairly upbeat and positive picture but it's impossible to get a real idea of what the situation is we can now speak to mark koch who is the united nations humanitarian chief and he's joining us live from the north korean capital pyongyang twenty eleven was the last time the u.n. undersecretary general went to pyongyang what's brought about your visit now. well it's to look at the humanitarian situation and what's changed. and it is clear that something to be improved the paper speakers for the number of people suffering from malnutrition back in twenty eleven the most recent data to rent you know set the un's children agency of collecting this data we have reasonable to great confidence in it is that the stunting rate malnutrition rates of the life insurance for about twenty seconds so that's improvement of course twenty percent
of children being malnourished is far too many nearly half the children rural areas as well so not actually absolutely i think i mean certainly we in the media have had a general idea as to the situation in north korea and many would argue that the situation that the north koreans have had to face has been a consequence a disastrous consequence of the political program that has been pursued by the leadership. well my job is to identify where there are humanitarian needs i try to get attention don't sit there and i will also try to support progress and there is progress being made but not fast enough and there's still too much for me and i think good discussions with the or clarity in pyongyang . of providing better access they used to show we can see what's going on helping us but we know it's an action so rounding up that mr local i'm so sorry i need to
jump him because and if he if he'd stayed for a space because we have to go direct to brussels where you can see at donald trump's and my compass sitting opposite yen stilton the sexy generals nato there's a pretty vigorous two way going on again to this in just dollars to russia and now we have to defend them against russia. don't make this an annoyance of trying to find nations there are sometimes differences on the different views and also some disagreements on the guy so. i come from russia to germany small issues close to the supreme but the suspenseful nature is that despite these differences we have always been able to unite around our four calls to protect on the future of the people from the sound of your story together because if you go to a war zone the cold war folks are going together. but how are you going to get what a country is getting its energy from and the person you want protection for.
because understand that when we stand together also when dealing with pressure on we are stronger i think will become seniors no you just think you're right you're richer well that's the only right you're making rich richer a good you know even you know the cold war made dollars for trade between russia and under the in the disagreements about what on trade agreements we should do that i think trade is wonderful i think energy is a whole different story. the energy is a much different story than normal. and you have a country like poland the exact. you take a look at some of the subject because they don't want to be captive to russia for germany as far as i'm concerned it's captive to russia and it's going to be much. trouble. so we're. getting their energy from russia explained and if you really. do you trust you.
if. you believe. well extraordinary exchanges these are meant to be these are meant to be deployed diplomatic assurances very discreet and pretty much a insubstantial but there you go the the nub really of the of the argument that donald trump is presenting to his nato allies we're going to talk a lot more about that later on but in the meantime let's thank mark local the u.n. undersecretary general who is in pyongyang thank you very much for your patience but we just had to take that extraordinary two way and we were going we were talking earlier about i suggested to you that many people would blame him in many ways the regime's disastrous policies for the dire situation for so many of the north korean population and it's only now now the politics is slightly changed that
the u.n. is being invited back in to try and help shore up the nutrition and the economy if you like of of north korea. well the u.n. to beam were. trying to help the only humanitarian issue they plodded so drought civil food insecurity or short if that's for a long long time and what we've seen a step progress has been made art there are still lots of needs and so what i am doing major in my visit is talking to the government visiting community now. how to collaborate in which for me to meet these we have needs and i'm encouraged that there is no desire to. look to collaborate with the u.n. to get for example more children treated my nutrition to get more drugs into the hospitals i read yesterday to a hospital where they have
a forty patients who need treatment that you have to notice this but only drugs for forty of those people and the government very keen. the u.n. work with them to get more trucks in and we want to do that too because whenever that you have politics whatever the wider issue it's an immediate humanitarian needs is something that would countries in the world agree should be done and there was a specific exemption given humanitarian assistance that's part of a recent sanctions put in place by the u.n. security council so it's not controversial to want to save lives matusow in three minutes here in action is something everybody agrees is in pool how file the those sanctions that you refer to how far because any korea is has been slapped with perhaps the heaviest rain just sanctions in the world how far are they impinging upon the humanitarian mission. well i think there is an effective sanctions on delaying day in court to things like essential medicines and
their. children suffering from our tradition and we're working with the sanctions committee un to try to speed up those process probably the bigger effect it's not the direct sanctions are difficult and the roaring attentions to humanitarian the fact that even resources the u.n. can help feeling with and it could be because getting this will be out there are great but you haven't we haven't discussed it is hard when there's all these other things going on but we think. when we tell the story of both the needs the fact that we have better access and better data and good information we don't need to get this money on out that money as you say are just we are hopeful that we will attract more support. but local thank you very much indeed for talking to us the
un's undersecretary general for humanitarian affairs and emergency relief to give you your full title thanking all right now we're going to go back to those extraordinary scenes that we saw just a few minutes ago at diplomatic editor james bays is that in brussels at nato headquarters and my goodness i haven't seen anything like that anything is direct and as testy as that in public for a long time. no i don't think diplomacy has seen anything like that in the modern age that is president trump as we've seen him many times before but not in that setting not in the formal setting of a breakfast with the nato secretary general and a back and forth between the two effectively an argument between the two broadcast live on global television and very very strong words attacking one country in particular that country germany saying that germany was
a captive of russia why should the u.s. be funding nato and other nato members if which is what the president claims germany is paying money to russia for gas quite extraordinary the way that played out on television normally reporters are just ushered into a room to see the very start of a meeting it's normally known as a photo spray watch them shake hands talk some niceties at the start of the meeting and then the reporters are ushered out but instead we saw the real content of the meeting and it was far from diplomatic all right james thank you very much indeed and. let's have a look at the top stories here now to syria as we've been reporting the president
on his arrived in brussels for what is already a contentious nato summit the gathering comes as mr trump stands firm on his claim that native partners don't pay enough to defense compared with the u.s. is valid that european countries won't quote take advantage of america. locally here about forty billion dollars car has been given by other countries to help. but that's not nearly enough the united states is paying far too much. other countries are not paying enough especially so so we're going to have a meeting on that and the secretary general is working very hard at that he has said the problem and hopefully we can get a result going on for decades and decades that it's disproportionate and not fair to the taxpayers of the united states and we're going to make it fair and breaking news from afghanistan where at least two people have been killed by
a gunman by gunmen i should say who've stormed a government office in general about this is a situation that song going and it is with the afghan special forces armed men entered the office of the education department and set off explosives china says it will retaliate if the u.s. imposes a new wave of terrorists on chinese imports a wednesday washington announce a possible ten percent charge on two hundred billion dollars worth of goods from china beijing called the move unacceptable and warned it would be forced to impose countermeasures if the u.s. goes ahead. i've been celebrations in thailand after all twelve boys in the football case were rescued from a flooded cave doctors say they're all well apart from having lost some weight. the world health organization says yemen's falsity of her data has registered the highest number of color of cases in the country the saudi a coalition is backing a government offensive against the rebels for control over the red sea polish if
the data about fourteen percent of color cases across yemen came from her data since the outbreak began in april last year more than a quarter of the city's population is also suffering from malnutrition the wife of the chinese dissident a nobel peace prize winner who died last year has arrived in germany after being freed from eight years of house arrest lucia flew from beijing to. her husband died while serving in the eleven year jail sentence for inciting subversion right those are the latest headlines i'll be back in about thirty minutes after inside story. the i.m.f. said riyadh's breakeven twenty eighteen is likely to be around eighty eight dollars a barrel why is argentina again turning to the i.m.f. for help now we bring you the stories the economic world we live in counting the
cost on al-jazeera. judging the u.s. supreme court democrats are alarmed that donald trump's choice of justice to join the highest court in america they say brett kavanaugh is a public loyalist he's too conservative and the right wing so can he win an expected confirmation battle in the senate this is inside story. hello there and welcome to the program. the latest political battleground in the u.s. senate as soon set become donald trump's choice supreme the.
