6:07 pm
discipline and vision this was the message from a state that has defied the odds for 70 years on tuesday the world's longest surviving communist nation celebrated its achievements on a grand scale standing where chairman mao proclaimed the people's republic in 1949 president being struck a combative note. today a socialist china is standing proudly in the world's east. and no force can change the position of our great motherland and no force can stop the chinese people and the chinese nation from stepping forward. the spectacle that followed was designed to highlight china's rise from a nation in despair to a global superpower. at the forefront of that new found confidence and display of military might on a massive scale advanced weaponry including nuclear capable mistrials rumbling
6:08 pm
through beijing. the event comes at a crucial time growth is slowing as the trade war with the u.s. takes its toll on the economy and calls for more democracy grow louder both in hong kong and among the middle classes in mainland china. as take a closer look. china hong kong with a focus down so he was the japanese ambassador to china between 1991993 welcome to day w let's start with the celebrations all the way purely for domestic consumption. yes i did they are 1st of all i was the best of that long ago it was to those in 4 to 2007 but you know on your question yes indeed you see the whole population is excluded from the celebrations the joy that she didn't bring in this speech this morning spoke as cannot can there will be seen why because this is
6:09 pm
a strong message to the people of the people is not only china has risen china's the 2nd greatest economic power in the world it is also the party has achieved this this is the best it's mainly about the party 70 years ago 28 years of civil war and war ended there were 6 super and 6 in the ration of joy because the party had finally created peace in china and now china has achieved so much more under the leadership of the communist party don't forget that that is the message why i want to present genie is his grip on power now absolute and unchallenged well it's not on challenge because there are unfortunately for him there's the hong kong problem which he has not managed to resolve so that obviously is for the chinese to see even so the interpretation of what's happening there is carefully scripted by the party but still it is obviously a scratch in his image and it creates doubts on this authority but basically of
6:10 pm
course he has still been it's to show he has a command and he may be the strongest politically strongest political leader ever since more it's a top that's is the image she wanted to create and i think he achieved that and so how visible than 30 hong kong protests to people in mainland china. well as a set this is carefully. controlled to the news out of hong kong so obviously the message is these are. rebels against the mother country and they have no no effect at all but still it happens and it happens since months now and obviously one child and 2 systems is not a system where would a neighbor the communist party to control what is happening in hong kong that this is not the image that the c.g. people would like to cool of him so he is powerful and that's what he wanted to
6:11 pm
show so that as i said that's this little scratch in his image that even the majority of the people in the people's republic who quite believe what the party tells them namely these are rebels without consequence what they see so how long do you think he will tolerate this little scratch. the problem is. i mean maybe maybe it would even be to the. basically to the advantage of the communist party to move into an kong with power and to show its strength but then hong kong as 7 and a half 1000000 people and it's a large city it's a complicated city and this is not like tiananmen 30 years ago it might end up in a long long extended civil war inside on kong in the city between the buildings it is not something where she didn't pin can easily say i will finish this off he
6:12 pm
cannot as the past weeks have shown if not i'm pretty sure he would have ended it already and a brief word on the other phone in ensuring things outside that this trade war with the united states how much of an effect is it having. well actually. the image that donald trump has in china is not that of a truly strong leader. the us also of course through the media is portrayed as a country that is losing out to china losing out to xi jinping and the way the trade war runs is only a case in point from the point of the point of view of the leadership so this is not really a dent in the image of a sitting pig it's rather showing that he has strong even when he's dealing with
6:13 pm
somebody. uncalled calculable like donald trump are interesting thank you for joining us i focused on so a former drama about us that china. well take a look now at some of the other stories making news around the world a bridge crossing a bank in taiwan has collapsed on the boats more than the truck carrying oil plummeted from the bridge into the water at least 10 people being injured rescue teams are searching for survivors. the u.n. refugee agency has reported that more than a 1000 migrants have died trying to cross the mediterranean to europe for the 6th year in a row most died on the way to italy almost to. the hundreds of migrants have found a peaceful protest on the greek island of lesbos demanding better living conditions the protest took place outside the crowded morning a refugee camp last rites broke out on sunday after a fire and part of the town killed one asylum seeker.
6:14 pm
the democrats in the u.s. house of representatives are stepping up the pressure on president trump as they move closer to the launching impeachment proceedings have now issued subpoenas against his personal lawyer rudy giuliani the president is alleged to have abused his office by urging ukraine's president to investigate democratic presidential candidate joe biden and now there is evidence that mr trump pressured the australian prime minister for his own for his own political gain. the story starts to seem all too familiar democrats say that new allegations point to yet another cover up by the trump administration according to the u.s. justice department in may this year trump asked australian prime minister scott morrison to help discredit form a special counsel robert miller's russia investigation miller let the probe into trump's alleged ties to russian interference into 2016 u.s.
6:15 pm
presidential election it's alleged the transcript of the call of with australia's morrison was withdrawn as it was with another call from trump to ukraine's president followed him into selenski yes i'd only trump insists he's done nothing wrong i made a call who always preferred when the whistleblower report of the very center of. this 2nd case of trump allegedly trying to enlist the help of a foreign leader for his own purposes can only add more fuel to the fire already being fanned by the democrats. as get more from washington bureau chief alexandra welcome alexandra so how does this 2nd allegation of abuse of power feed into the impeachment inquiry that's already begun. for the democrats this is another example and now for evidence for the president hughes in
6:16 pm
his office using high level diplomacy talks to advance his personal political interests with regards to the impeachment inquiry i would say that the democrats. prefer to focus on the ukraine and the phone call president trump had with the ukrainian president because they want to stay on message they want a clear result for the american public and they want to be finished by thanksgiving so this is the 2nd instance in which democrats say president trump tried to pressure for a leader into doing him political favors there must now be words that goes. well there certainly are because they believe that there is a certain pattern of behavior in presidents trumps dealings with foreign leaders but we also have to keep in mind that after back to back leaks of controversial remarks president heads made in the phone calls with international leaders at the
6:17 pm
beginning of his presidency the white house has decided to restrict access to those phone calls and to reduce the number of aides there were allowed to be present so it is difficult it will be difficult to find more evidence there therefore i believe that the democrats now are pushing forward with their inquiry with by requesting more information from president trump's close aides and cabinet members they have subpoenaed secretary of state pompei oh they have subpoena rudy giuliani president trump's personal lawyer however it is not clear now if pale and giuliani will comply secretary pompeo has already accused the democrats of bully like tech takes. no the republican senate majority leader mitch mcconnell has said that he would have no choice but to take of articles of impeachment if the house approves
6:18 pm
them so is it likely to come to that well we have to keep in mind that the impeachment inquiry inquiry has just taught sets and staff we have a majority of the house membership saying that they are in favor of beginning the proceedings but they have not committed to how they would vote on the impeachment articles however we have to say that in the house of representatives. they just need a simple majority in the senate this is a different think there. is needed 2 thirds super majority and we have to say that the majority of republican senators are still behind the president supporting here so it doesn't seem that this is likely to happen in the senate i was under for a moment in washington thank you for your thing d.w.
