1:03 pm
secession or independence of hong kong will be deemed illegal and would be punitive it seems though the group had continued its activities particularly encouraging overseas groups and organizations to go form an umbrella to advocate and promote hong kong's independence but i must point out that there are very very young people and there are students ranging from 16 to 21 who were arrested and the leader of the group is said to be only 19 years old police entered their homes later that night without a warrant arrested them and confiscated devices communication devices and their computers and this is selling sending a chilling effect across hong kong as it now sets a precedent there are many questions as to what will happen to these young people what the process will be particularly in a judicial process now under this law that will be allowed to extradite them across the border into mainland china and also questions about what the next steps are

expense of others it is completely wrong to see the national security law on kong as a violation of sinope it is joint declaration of failure on a international obligations the call contents of joint declaration is about china's resumption of exercise of sovereignty over one common and national security law of hong kong coolie embodies the campaign hence it too is direction of the central government of china over hung up the policies regarding hong kong lay out in the joint declaration was opposed by china on our own initiative they are not china's commitment to the o'kane or international obligations the label of failure to fulfill international obligations should not
1:08 pm
be stuck on china it is the ok side that has failed to fulfill its international obligations and the one against its own platitudes by changing the policy and b. are now asking how does an answer spending the extradition treaty with them come to create a public computer in your hometown is drop the implementation of national security laws and interfere in china's internal affairs force china's willingness to develop a partnership with the u.k. has not changed during president xi jinping state whether to the u.k. 2015. china and u.k. is just issued a joint declaration and building a global comprehensive strategic partnership for the 21st century
1:09 pm
china has always seen the ok as a partner and has been committed to developing our sound and stable relationship with the ok at the state council and foreign minister one he said 2 days ago in his telephone conversation with the foreign secretary dominic rut that for the u.k. china is an opportunity rather than a threat of factor for growth rather than a cause of decline a solution rather than a challenge or risk however they have been major changes and serious deviation in the case for a session and definition of china this is particularly evidence by the reason the ban on huawei they issue of our way is not about how the u.k. season deals with a chinese company it's about how the u.k.
1:10 pm
sees and deal with china as they see china as an opportunity a partner or threat or rival doesn't see china as a friendly country or hostile or potentially hostile states the u.k. leaders have said are mine occasions and they want to build a balanced positive and constructive china you relationship we hope they will match their words with actions the world is undergoing increasingly perform chanted and seen innocent tree go in 1000 still ravaging it in the have a blow to economic globalization and resulting in the deep recession of the world economy. what kind of a china ok relationship do in the face of such a situation china and the u.k.
1:11 pm
are both permanent members of the un security council and important members of g 20 and other international organizations both our countries of global implements. showed her the important mission of save guarding world caves and promoting department a sound and stable china ok relationship is not only in a fundamental inches of the peoples of our 2 countries but also can do see the world peace and prosperity we have are following reasons to make this relationship successful and not one reason to lead to failure how can weigh make this relationship successful i think is critically important to follow the 3 principles 1st respect each other
1:12 pm
history tells us and one relation when the international law and basic norms governing international relations are observed china wrote your k. relationship will move forward otherwise it will suffer setbacks or even retrogression china respects your kids sovereignty and has never interfere in your case internal affairs it is important a yoke a world do the same name may respect china's sovereignty and stop interfering in hong kong up errors which are china's internal affairs so as to avoid further damage to china your kate relationship the 2nd principle is in gauging mutually beneficial cooperation china and the ok have a highly complimentary economies and deeply integrated interests. the 2
1:13 pm
countries have both benefited tremendously from corporations such a mutual benefit so not the gods i had an oversimplified comparison of who is more dependent on the other or who has been taken at the bunty job it is our hope that the ok would resist the pressure and co hershon from a certain country and provide an open fair transparent and then discriminatory environment of chinese investment so as to bring back the confidence of chinese businesses in the u.k. china you ok already shared a broad consensus on safeguarding multilateral multilateralism imodium free trade
1:14 pm
and addressing global challenges such as climate change one proxy it is completed and coby $1000.00 is over there will be unlimited prospects of china ok cooperation in areas of trade financial services sign said tech knowledge education and health care it is hard to imagine a global crayton that bypasses the croods china the cancelling from china means to covering from opportunities decoupling from growth and coupling from the future the 3rd principle is to seek common ground despite differences china and u.k. deeper in history charges social system and development stage is natural we do not always see eye to eye 70 years ago the ok was the 1st the
1:15 pm
major bust the country to recognize new china over the past 70 years. china and u.k. have found common ground is fight differences and one beyond ideological differences achieve continues progress in our pelagia relationship today after 70 years this relationship has been more substantial and more profound it is not religion shit between rivals where one side going is the other side's loss still less is a relationship of either or that existed between hostile states china ok relationship is one of a partnership which is defined by equal treatment and mutual benefit
1:16 pm
china and u.k. should have enough wisdom and capability to manage and deal with this differences rather than allowing anti china forces and cold the warriors to kidnap china you'll create relationship i often say great britain cannot be great without independent foreign policies the ok has withstood the pressure from others and made the right strategic choices at the many critical historical junctures from becoming the 1st a major western country to recognize new china in 150 to establish in diplomatic relationship with china at the sharjah their past level in 1000. from taking part in the asia in pressure infrastructure development bank to building
1:17 pm
a global campaign hence it suited partnership for the hunt to put sun tree with the china. now don't you know it is their english and speaking there is the chinese ambassador to the united kingdom and you show me really justifying china's new security law which has really come into operation on thursday justifying not only china's stance and it's all thorough in dealing with its own laws and jurisdictions but also taking a very large swipe at the united kingdom in terms of interfering in its internal affairs let's get more on this in a moment and give you a polland who's kong but 1st let's cross over to the british capital london where rory chalons is standing by and of course the chinese ambassador very clear on his speech there prepared obviously to take a swipe at the british government over its position on china and the new security
1:18 pm
law. yeah absolutely the what we heard. was a defense of china's activity on the world state he was saying that china is committed to a path of peaceful development china is not trying to invade other countries it's not trying to export its model of governance to other countries and therefore what the u.k. is doing at moments according to china is wrong and irrational that the u.k. should stop interfering in hong kong that this is a chinese internal affair as he talks about the benefits to both countries all of the standing. interaction that the u.k. should not try and decouple itself from china he said there are a 1000 reasons why
1:19 pm
a good relationship should be fostered in men's not one reason why good relationship be allowed to slide he said it's hard to imagine a global britain that excludes china of course that's a plea to the u.k. as it exits from the european union and tries to establish itself again as an independent country with an independent trade policy not china not to try and cut china that will be the wrong path so go down he also said china should sort of the u.k. should act independently and not listen to others i think that's obviously a jab at the u. the u.s. and the the alliance between the u.k. and the u.s. and essentially that the u.k. should have its own independent foreign policy so basically it was talking up good relations between the 2 countries setting the u.k.
1:20 pm
so leave. hong kong out of things that it's not the u.k. is business and any more the country should think pragmatically and work towards some sort of partnership not exclusion. rory thank you for a challenge there in london let's cross over to hong kong to be a part of was also listening in to that speech certainly from the chinese ambassador to the u.k. and of course also centered on the national security law it has started to impact on the people of hong kong and certainly with elections pending in september opposition groups and individuals are being targeted even today. absolutely right so one of the things i want to point out is hong kong is particularly sensitive issue for the u.k. as hong kong used to be a british colony in the u.k. signed a joint declaration with beijing before it was handed over in 1907 and the ambassador
1:21 pm
had mentioned that to saying it hadn't violated the joint declaration but the u.k. and the rest of the international community see this national security law as imposing restrictions on the hong kong that wasn't within the agreements to safeguard hong kong's autonomy and now we're seeing the hong kong government using that national security law as a way of what its opponents are saying influencing elections these legislative council elections the only even minor democratic process there is in hong kong that are to take place in september about 12 of the candidates the pro-democracy candidates including activists joshua wong the more radical i would say activists that were pushing for far more anti government action along with even more moderate established democratic candidates have been now disqualified and the government says it's because partially because they gave they listed a number of reasons but one of the main reasons underlying it is because they did
1:22 pm
not support this national security law so although we're seeing beijing saying that this national security law should not affect the political sphere it should not affect people's freedom of the expressions it should not affect hong kong so ptolemy the actions that we're seeing and according particularly to the critics of hong kong government and the opposition camp is that it is you being used very much to limits hong kong's expression and particularly any anti government dissenter activity. thank you. russia's ambassador to bella ruse says he's been summoned to the foreign ministry in a sign of escalating tensions between the 2 neighbors it's after security forces detained more than 30 suspected russian mercenaries near the capital minsk state media are reporting that all authorities have been told 200 privately contracted fighters had
1:23 pm
entered the country to destabilize it ahead of its presidential election in august now russia has denied the allegations and asked valerie's to clarify the situation or belarus has been one of russia's most reliable allies since the fall of the soviet union but relations have strained in recent years moscow wants valerie's to implement a union agreement signed in 1909 that would create a single currency constitution parliament and court system between them but president alexander lukashenko blames moscow for domestic discontent and has accused it of plotting to overthrow him meanwhile relations with the west have improved in february my pompei a became the 1st u.s. secretary of state to visit minsk since the early 1990 s. after the washington appointed its 1st ambassador in over a decade then in may belew sordid oil from the u.s. for the 1st time after failing to agree a price to buy it from russia ryan or as the pena is
1:24 pm
a fellow at the russia and eurasia program at chatham house which is a british foreign affairs think tank joins me now from london good to have you with us on the program let's just talk about these men that have been detained could they be russian mercenaries linked to the wider group for example or what are they doing in belarus. well let me start from the point of actually not so many people in belarus believe that these people came to belarus of the civilized many people in belarus i jailed on the freight charges and previously below south ortiz several times he used forcible terrorist attacks as a tool to suppress them accredit activities during the election campaigns so what most people believe if that peace mess there it's we're going to do that middle east or africa through ballerinas because of the problems with connections caused by the pandemic so presently i do not see much point for russia to into frame to
1:25 pm
this presidential election and to send any messages here we can imagine that gramley who can the measure of what graham and swarms to see as a result of the selection that belarus will destroy links with them as that the west will introduce sanctions against belarus that bill or since society will be in depression the political system will be the judge demise that the bill or some economy will be very weak and dependent on russia because actually look at shanghai yeah so essentially look so i let you finish yes sure. yeah so actually deliver him during this presidential election after seeing what many was because he's depressed everyone now and the country and the rest will have lot of the trip back to show you some sanctions. ok so you have a scenario where public perception is that these individuals were in transit through bellerose possibly going to a conflict zone maybe in north africa yet we have the actions of the president
1:26 pm
and his foreign ministry to call the russian ambassador about what's going on so let's just talk about the potential for a presidential election how nervous is looking shango that he might have been unseated dethroned in that russia could be behind this because he's already jailed or certainly arrested several opposition candidates. yeah well let me show starts from the point that actually you know when some country send our sense messengers to your country your you should probably react in a different way you shouldn't just call an ambassador you probably shoot like close border connections close air connection so do something really against the forcible aggressor but at the same time we didn't see that resteal do not understand what is going on so my guess is that the recent government is currently trying to find
1:27 pm
a solution for this for this situation and the only way these accusations mean that relations between belarus and russia will be spoiled for a long time and receive there the government is very nervous very nervous but i just really do not see any evidence there that it were russians who were sending these people to belarus in this tbilisi because it looks the government accuses russian government or interference for the last 3 months but at the same time didn't provide any evidence of that it is interesting a very fluid situation it will keep an eye on as a moment or a whore as the pen your thanks for joining us from london thank you of the world's biggest plane maker has posted a net loss of $2200000000.00 in the 1st half of this year has seen a fall in demand because of the global pandemic it says its production of its most
1:28 pm
popular jet the 83524525 months rival boeing earlier posted a $2400000000.00 quarterly loss and announce significant job cuts more this let's cross over to natasha butler who is empowered because their bus have released their 2nd quarter results is not really looking that good is it. i know it's bad news for air bus the european plane maker posting these results are 2200000000 net losses in the 1st 6 months of this year in the 2nd quarter revenue for lng by 55 percent half of that they delivered only half of the aircraft they plan to in the beginning of this year and this is means that basically the plane makers have to cut its overall production by 40 percent now the reason airbus says for all this is of course the coronavirus endemic which is seen the airline industry particularly badly affected but also there are issues internal issues
1:29 pm
within their past including the fact that it is cutting its 80 $380.00 program which it plans to close next year but what the plane maker is saying is that there is now very limited visibility on the future on what will happen next we know that the airline industry is supposed to return to its pre pandemic levels in 20232025 sat some way off yet but there's no doubt of course pandemic is seen people are not travel at all during the lockdown all restrictions and reductions on the amount of airline travel has been happening that has affected the whole industry really badly of course the touch of we'll keep an eye on this and join you again in paris we get more developments thank you let's cross over to andrea switchman he's managing director at the center for aviation competence joins me live from the university of sunglass in switzerland by skype good to have you with us on the program so the airbus announcement will only add to the worry that many
1:30 pm
global businesses have had to wonder really what to do next and we want to do now dip into reserves all start sort of putting the feel to government and financial institutions to help to keep it afloat. well i think this shock really had changed to business environment significantly and especially yet transport industry as we have heard before has been reduced significantly as interest been allowed to to travel many more closed airlines that are not in order allowed to operate and by this. capacity had to be reduced to almost 0 relative to a very very small number of flights and then the companies had to react very quickly by getting their cost on the controller i drove by asking government for support or also by just reducing their costs variable costs are easy to it was if you don't fly but fixed costs which made about 50 percent for an airline are hard
1:31 pm
to control and they refused by government supported in some companies those fixed costs by interest parking planes taking planes out of business maybe retiring them earlier than planned to just get them up to cough the cost book and they of course canceled all of those or if you late orders to lease of course hit airbus. significantly and the question now is just how long does it take until. these orders may be reacting to it will they not be needed anymore or will they need it but in 2345 years from now that's the big question how much does my assumption is that industry so how much of the drop and how much of this is not driven by passenger numbers because really you need passengers to travel all the lines and you need ally in capacity to fly around the world so will will companies like us really be looking now at the next 2 to 3 months as to how many passengers
1:32 pm
globally have decided to take that important step and to start traveling again and only then will they understand perhaps how many aircraft may be needed by lines globally. i think this is one issue that they may look at but i assume that based on the newest data also i up the publishes be no doubt. to go back to a normal level of transport like we had in 2019 but it probably taken pleased until 202324 maybe even 25 as we don't know how long it takes until we can medically control the device. and i think you're in this period of time it's very dynamic and probably. let's say you're forecasting they are forecasting they're looking at the market but you're not sure what to do really for costs as we have changes all over 'd so i assume that they worked until 2025 which significant to reduce to
1:33 pm
capacities significantly reduced amount. of their lines probably drive down business to a smaller business during this time with your actions to scale up quickly again off that at which you see what happens dress with thanks so much for joining us from sunderland it's lent thank you. thank you well it's time for the little his robot not looking good in the caribbean we're still young in the season we're up to the letter i in the alphabet for named storms back from the satellite picture you can see it's quite a mess it's quite an arc of cloud stretches right up almost to bermuda and then down towards the constant to south america so there's a lot of cloud of the in the middle there is indeed a circulation pretty hard to see in our eye because it doesn't have one it's not our probably won't become a hurricane as i say it is the night's names thomas e. then east in the you've ever had one starts with an eye is a yes now it's winds are particularly
1:34 pm

time is running out for the european union and the united kingdom to agree any sort of framework for brics that train deal before the end of the year nothink is more polarizing in the debate than fishing rights in the 1st of 2 reports lawrence lee has been speaking to fishermen in the south east of england who welcome a new deal breaks it. fisherman work harder than nearly anyone it's just after 5 in the morning and wink walpole is doing what he does most days travelling out of the mouth of the thames estuary towards the english channel to look for a catch but he has a big problem the far larger dutch trawlers which not only stealings a british war says but which sometimes used techniques like the mass electrocution of fish to take the lion share if the cold and the soul don't make it up to the estuary his chances last we shipped up aficionados. would
1:45 pm
typically be fishing for 2020 stone and. one of our friends when. i think up about 6 start you know i wouldn't pay for $1.00 industries falling apart . so. fishing rights have become arguably the most totemic issue of all for supporters of brics it's the small boats became a photo opportunity in support of no deal the argument being that a line had to be drawn in the sea to offer proper separation from a europe which gains far more than the u.k. from the current arrangements that votes that was taken to westminster belongs to this man who is as convinced now as he ever was that brics it must be used to support the u.k.'s broken fishing industry we've said we could potentially have an industry where fight 1000000000 pounds if fission in st you where there's a moment it's in a 1000000000. that's. more employment there's an awful lot more you know no more of
1:46 pm
your money 1st little towns you know around the coast mr switzer without so this is one of the more difficult arguments for critics of no deal that while it might look catastrophic for other industries for the owners of small fishing boats it could be hugely significant opponents of brecht's it often points out that fishing is only worth half a percent of the whole british economy but in communities like this that cuts no ice it's all for them it's certainly not about nationalism it's only a bits about solvency one anything else is about trying to make a living. when cars come back in with just a small catch he will sell it partly to local wholesalers and partly from his own shop the locals who support him he has none of the power of the big fishing corporations but he and many others like him genuinely believe the whole point of bricks it is to stand up for the little guy for 3 al-jazeera the southeastern england. that will be crossing the english channel on friday for the other side of
