The G20 summit in Hamburg wraps up - without agreement on how

:00:00.:00:13.

The host struggles to hide her disappointment.

:00:14.:00:25.

TRANSLATION: Wherever there is no consensus that can be agreed, an

:00:26.:00:30.

agreement has to be made clear. America is seen as the stumbling

block - President Trump leaves Germany without giving

:00:33.:00:34.

a news conference. Iraqi government forces begin

:00:35.:00:38.

celebrating in Mosul, with the announcement of a final

Djokovic powers his way into the last 16, with a straight sets win on

to World News Today. The G20 summit has closed

in Germany, revealing Significantly the final agreements

made by the world leaders showed how isolated the United States is among

:01:19.:01:21.

other nations over climate change. While members backed the climate

the US president did deal for post-Brexit

and Vladimir Putin held their first talks with claims of Russian

while fighting Well, host Angela Merkel was most

:01:57.:01:57.

upset about the lack of a deal on the Paris agreement,

:01:58.:02:04.

here's what she said. TRANSLATION: One crucial issue was

:02:05.:02:19.

climate and energy, and what came out of this meeting was what I had

:02:20.:02:22.

already said at the beginning of this meeting. Wherever there is no

:02:23.:02:29.

consensus that can be achieved, disagreement as to be made clear.

:02:30.:02:35.

You are familiar with the American position, I'd applaud this, the USA

:02:36.:02:44.

left the climate agreement -- I deplore this. What becomes clear in

:02:45.:02:51.

this declaration is the dissenting of the United States. But I'm

:02:52.:02:55.

gratified to note that the other 19 member states at the G20 say that

:02:56.:03:01.

the Paris Agreement is not reversible and we feel committed to

:03:02.:03:08.

what we agreed on, and it is to be permitted as quickly as possible and

:03:09.:03:12.

we also agree on a so-called Hamburg action plan on climate and energy.

:03:13.:03:15.

Angela Merkel there. Well Donald Trump was one of the few

:03:16.:03:16.

leaders to leave Hamburg Here he is boarding Air Force One

:03:17.:03:19.

back to Washington. What is emerging is what happened

:03:20.:03:23.

during meetings he had with world leaders -

:03:24.:03:25.

including the Chinese President. The Chinese state news agency says

:03:26.:03:28.

Xi Jingping called for more peace-making efforts

:03:29.:03:30.

on the Korean peninsula. The other much talked

:03:31.:03:35.

about meeting - was of course - between Donald Trump and Vladimir

:03:36.:03:39.

Putin. Here's what the Russian President

:03:40.:03:43.

made of that meeting TRANSLATION: The president of the

:03:44.:03:55.

USA posed the question, we discussed the question and it was not one

:03:56.:03:59.

question, it was many. He devoted a lot of time to it. Our position is

:04:00.:04:04.

well known and I laid it out. There is no basis to save Russia

:04:05.:04:08.

interfered in the US elections. What is important is that there should be

:04:09.:04:13.

no room for doubt on such things in future. I said this at the last G20

:04:14.:04:19.

session. It is directly linked to cyberspace and the Internet. We

:04:20.:04:22.

agreed with the president of the US that we create a working group and

:04:23.:04:26.

work together on how to control security in the area of cyberspace,

:04:27.:04:31.

on how to ensure international legal laws are observed and how to ensure

:04:32.:04:36.

there is no interference in the internal affairs of foreign states.

:04:37.:04:41.

Above all, this concerns the USA and Russia. I think we are able to do

:04:42.:04:50.

this and I see no reason to doubt that. Then, there will be no more

:04:51.:04:52.

speculation on the matter. Vladimir Putin there.

:04:53.:04:54.

Well, let's get more with our correspondent

:04:55.:04:56.

Donald Trump very much front and centre of the G20, but he didn't

:04:57.:05:05.

give a press conference. How unusual is that? It is unusual, I think,

:05:06.:05:11.

because other leaders did. Also, because it leaves the last word on

:05:12.:05:16.

that crucial meeting between these two leaders. Vladimir Putin and

:05:17.:05:20.

Donald Trump, with the Russians. Of course, there is some doubt about

:05:21.:05:25.

aspects of that meeting. Some contention. Vladimir Putin said that

:05:26.:05:31.

President Trump accepted the assertion that Russia gave, that it

:05:32.:05:35.

had not sought to interfere in the outcome of last year's presidential

:05:36.:05:40.

election here in the USA. Vladimir Putin said that Donald Trump noted

:05:41.:05:44.

that, and accepted it. The White House has told reporters that that

:05:45.:05:49.

was not, in fact, the case. That Donald Trump did not accept that

:05:50.:05:53.

there was no Russian intervention in the election here. Nonetheless, the

:05:54.:05:56.

fact that they agreed by all accounts to then move on and put

:05:57.:06:00.

these things behind them and scope out her Tories for the future, seen

:06:01.:06:06.

as a positive sign by both -- territory for the future. This went

:06:07.:06:12.

way beyond its 35 minutes or so, but two hours and 16 minutes. An

:06:13.:06:17.

interesting meeting that a lot of people were watching. Donald Trump

:06:18.:06:20.

sat in on a lot of meetings but not all of them. He stored he -- his

:06:21.:06:30.

daughter replaced him on a few. Yes, his 35-year-old first daughter

:06:31.:06:34.

slipped into his chair as he made himself absent briefly. There has

:06:35.:06:39.

been some condemnation of that on social media. And, from various

:06:40.:06:44.

commentators. I may point out that Angela Merkel has made pretty light

:06:45.:06:49.

bit but there are those who say that this was someone who was not

:06:50.:06:53.

qualified, not elected, a New York socialite who had no business, if

:06:54.:06:57.

you like, sitting down with world leaders. The point should be made

:06:58.:07:03.

that Ivanka Trump is officially an adviser to President Trump, she's a

:07:04.:07:07.

very trusted one, and her husband Jared Kushner is a senior adviser to

:07:08.:07:14.

President Trump. Keeping it in the is not an president. Jimmy Carter's

:07:15.:07:19.

wife was known to sit in on Cabinet meetings and Hillary Clinton played

:07:20.:07:23.

a part in health care reform, or attempts at it, when she was first

:07:24.:07:27.

lady. Nonetheless, some surprise at this. David, what has been the

:07:28.:07:34.

response in the United States to the G20? Donald Trump very much about

:07:35.:07:40.

America first? Well, yes. It saw the United States sidelined on that

:07:41.:07:44.

crucial issue of a climate accord. The final communique taking note of

:07:45.:07:52.

the fact that America has pledged to withdraw from the Paris accord.

:07:53.:07:57.

Although, leaving the door open potentially to some sort of

:07:58.:07:59.

participation in the future, I think. There was disagreement as far

:08:00.:08:06.

as the US was concerned on trade and immigration. I think the very fact

:08:07.:08:10.

that we saw the USA isolated in this way will be sad, particularly for

:08:11.:08:17.

Angela Merkel, who was hosting the summit in her birthplace, Hamburg,

:08:18.:08:22.

and had hoped that it would provide the boost that she needs going into

:08:23.:08:27.

the elections there in September. David Willis, from Washington, thank

:08:28.:08:29.

you. Donald Trump was keen to talk about

:08:30.:08:38.

trade, as we mentioned there. Music to the ears of the British Prime

:08:39.:08:42.

Minister, Theresa May, who is looking for a post Brexit trade

:08:43.:08:44.

deal. The two had a meeting that overran

:08:45.:08:52.

by 20 minutes. He expects a powerful deal with the UK to be completed

:08:53.:08:57.

quickly. He also said that he plans to visit London, and it will go

:08:58.:09:01.

ahead. From Hamburg, our Deputy political editor, John Pienaar.

:09:02.:09:06.

Theresa May sees this relationship as key to a successful Brexit.

:09:07.:09:08.

She was counting on warm words, encouragement.

:09:09.:09:10.

Today, on trade, the president offered plenty of both.

:09:11.:09:13.

We're working on a trade deal that will be a very,

:09:14.:09:16.

very big deal, a powerful deal, great for both countries.

:09:17.:09:18.

And I think we'll have that done very, very quickly.

:09:19.:09:25.

Mrs May wants him to drop his opposition

:09:26.:09:29.

The charm offensive will go on, and soon he'll be in Britain.

:09:30.:09:34.

Not everyone will be as happy as Mrs May to see him.

:09:35.:09:37.

Worth cultivating the US friendship with the President and his family,

:09:38.:09:45.

his advisers, though his daughter Ivanka is both.

:09:46.:09:50.

Meeting the Japanese leader was important too.

:09:51.:09:54.

Shinzo Abe has just done a trade deal with the EU.

:09:55.:09:57.

Britain wants one just as favourable.

:09:58.:10:00.

Warm words about trade and cooperation can be comforting,

:10:01.:10:03.

even politically useful, at a summit like this.

:10:04.:10:06.

But striking deals with America, India, with anyone,

:10:07.:10:09.

And plenty of British businessmen, government officials,

:10:10.:10:13.

even Theresa May's Chancellor, remain to be convinced that

:10:14.:10:17.

agreements around the world could ever compensate for a tough,

:10:18.:10:19.

even harsh, deal with the European Union.

:10:20.:10:23.

The Prime Minister insists it can be done.

:10:24.:10:24.

Mrs May is widely seen as being weakened by the June election,

:10:25.:10:27.

I've held a number of meetings with other world leaders at this

:10:28.:10:36.

summit and have been struck by their strong desire

:10:37.:10:39.

to forge ambitious, new, bilateral trading relationships

:10:40.:10:40.

Do you accept that if EU leaders insist on tougher trade terms

:10:41.:10:46.

after Brexit than those we have now, there is a risk that the UK

:10:47.:10:49.

What we are doing is working to negotiate a good,

:10:50.:10:56.

comprehensive free trade agreement with the European Union.

:10:57.:10:59.

And I think it in the interest of both sides to have that

:11:00.:11:02.

But I'm also optimistic about the opportunities

:11:03.:11:12.

that we will see around the rest of the world.

:11:13.:11:14.

Her ambitions will be tested hard, along with her own hopes of carrying

:11:15.:11:18.

John Pienaar, BBC News, at the G20 in Hamburg.

:11:19.:11:24.

The last day of the G20 summit was marked by widespread protests. But

:11:25.:11:32.

without the violence that broke out on Thursday and Friday. It was a

:11:33.:11:36.

heavy police presence in and around the city. There appear to have been

:11:37.:11:40.

more sit down protests, but these do not appear to have developed into

:11:41.:11:46.

clashes. A reminder that there is plenty more on the G20 summit on our

:11:47.:11:50.

website, and in particular there is a look at what America's position on

:11:51.:11:54.

opting out of the climate change deal could mean for the environment,

:11:55.:11:57.

and how other countries are likely to react.

:11:58.:12:01.

Let's take a look at some of the other stories

:12:02.:12:03.

Just hours after being released from jail, one of Venezuela's

:12:04.:12:11.

main opposition leaders, Leopoldo Lopez, has urged supporters

:12:12.:12:13.

to continue street protests against the government

:12:14.:12:15.

The Supreme Court said Mr Lopez has been placed under house arrest

:12:16.:12:19.

for health reasons after spending more than three years in prison.

:12:20.:12:26.

85 migrants have been rescued off the coast of Libya

:12:27.:12:28.

Fishermen alerted the coastguard in north western Gara-bulli.

:12:29.:12:35.

A rescue team was sent out but 35 people, including seven children,

:12:36.:12:38.

The migrants are thought to be from countries including Nigeria,

:12:39.:12:43.

The United Nations agency UNESCO has added the Eritrean

:12:44.:12:49.

capital Asmara to its list of World Heritage sites.

:12:50.:12:52.

It's renowned for its architecture from Italy's Fascist era,

:12:53.:12:56.

including cinemas, banks and shops all built during Italy's

:12:57.:12:58.

It's the first time that an Eritrean site has gained

:12:59.:13:06.

State television in Iraq is reporting security forces

:13:07.:13:19.

could be just hours away from retaking the city of Mosul,

:13:20.:13:21.

which has been under the control of the so-called Islamic State

:13:22.:13:24.

After nine months of intense fighting, soldiers were today

:13:25.:13:29.

celebrating on the streets but as Jonathan Beale

:13:30.:13:31.

reports, there's still no official word of victory

:13:32.:13:33.

Their battle to retake Mosul from the group calling itself

:13:34.:13:46.

Islamic State started in October last year.

:13:47.:13:53.

They've lost many comrades along the way, but today

:13:54.:13:55.

the Iraqi security forces were firing their weapons

:13:56.:14:04.

in celebration, claiming victory over their enemy.

:14:05.:14:06.

TRANSLATION: This joy has been achieved by the sacrifices

:14:07.:14:08.

of our martyrs and the blood of our wounded heroes.

:14:09.:14:13.

God willing, may happiness prevail in Iraq.

:14:14.:14:14.

After nearly nine months of brutal street to street fighting,

:14:15.:14:17.

these Iraqi security forces believe they've defeated IS in the city

:14:18.:14:19.

But there are still pockets of resistance,

:14:20.:14:23.

No-one yet knows how many civilians have lost their lives in this city.

:14:24.:14:35.

TRANSLATION: Hunger, thirst, fear, and aerial bombardment.

:14:36.:14:39.

Our house was destroyed on top of us.

:14:40.:14:47.

The extremists' reign of terror in Mosul may be coming to an end.

:14:48.:14:51.

But they are by no means finished in Iraq.

:14:52.:14:53.

Stay with us on BBC News, still to come... All backgrounds, all

:14:54.:15:10.

persuasions, all colours of the rainbow. Tens of thousands join the

:15:11.:15:13.

annual Gay pride parade in London. Central London has been rocked by a

:15:14.:15:28.

series of terrorist attacks. Police say there have been many casualties

:15:29.:15:31.

and there is growing speculation that Al-Qaeda was responsible.

:15:32.:15:38.

Germany will be the hosts of the 2006 football World Cup, pitting

:15:39.:15:41.

favourites South Africa by a single vote. In South Africa, the idea of

:15:42.:15:49.

losing had not been contemplated. He entered through a downstairs window

:15:50.:15:54.

and made his way to the Queen's Private bedroom, asking for a

:15:55.:15:58.

cigarette. On the pretext of some being brought, she summoned a

:15:59.:16:01.

footman on duty, who took the man away. One child, one teacher, one

:16:02.:16:18.

book, one pen, can change the world. Education is the only solution.

:16:19.:16:31.

This is BBC World News today, the latest headlines...

:16:32.:16:35.

The G20 summit has ended in Germany, with world leaders failing to bridge

:16:36.:16:38.

the chasm over climate change, after America's withdrawal

:16:39.:16:40.

Iraqi government forces have begun celebrating in Mosul, with state TV

:16:41.:16:55.

saying a final victory against so-called Islamic State will be

:16:56.:16:56.

announced soon. Clashes have broken out between

:16:57.:16:57.

protesters and security forces in Indian-administered Kashmir,

:16:58.:16:59.

on the anniversary of the killing The Indian authorities have imposed

:17:00.:17:04.

heavy restrictions in the Kashmir valley for this anniversary,

stopping internet access Our correspondent Sanjoy Majumder

reports from Kashmir. A battle for control in south

:17:12.:17:31.

Kashmir. Protesters from surrounding villages take on the security

:17:32.:17:36.

forces. The troops respond with rats, a bat in charge... And

:17:37.:17:46.

eventually tear gas shells. The protest of mostly teenage boys have

:17:47.:17:49.

come onto the streets and security forces are chasing them, throwing

:17:50.:17:53.

rocks and they have been pushed back slowly. The mandate is very, very

:17:54.:18:00.

clear. On no account must they be allowed to advance. Security forces

:18:01.:18:07.

will use as much force is needed to bring this to an end. Authorities

:18:08.:18:13.

were determined to prevent a repeat of these scenes from one year ago.

:18:14.:18:21.

An outpouring of support for the militant commander Burhan Wani,

:18:22.:18:25.

during his funeral. Thousands of people, militants and civilians,

:18:26.:18:32.

turned up. A testimony to his massive public following. He had

:18:33.:18:35.

been killed in an exchange with Indian soldiers. This time, the

:18:36.:18:44.

village was sealed. Internet services were shut down, and

:18:45.:18:49.

villagers ordered to stay indoors. Soldiers even searched the woods to

:18:50.:18:51.

make sure that nobody slipped through. But many were determined to

:18:52.:19:02.

try... Including women. TRANSLATION: Burhan Wani was a martyr, not a

:19:03.:19:06.

terrorist. We want to tell the government that. Our brother was a

:19:07.:19:13.

freedom fighter, he protected us. Since his death, there's been an

:19:14.:19:18.

upsurge of violence in Kashmir. More worryingly for India, civilians are

:19:19.:19:26.

playing an active role. During counterinsurgency operations, they

:19:27.:19:28.

attack the troops to help militants escape, and the soldiers often fire

:19:29.:19:36.

at them. Our effort is that there is minimum collateral damage. We do not

:19:37.:19:40.

want civilian casualties. To a large extent, we have succeeded in that.

:19:41.:19:47.

Public anger is now posing a greater threat to the security forces, then

:19:48.:19:49.

armed militants. James Pearce has

:19:50.:19:55.

all the sports news. Fairly comfortable wins at Wimbledon

:19:56.:19:58.

for two big names and former Roger Federer was close

:19:59.:20:00.

to his imperious best as he reached the fourth round with a straight

:20:01.:20:05.

sets win over And before him on Centre Court

:20:06.:20:07.

was Novak Djokovic who beat Ernests Gulbis, also

:20:08.:20:18.

without dropping a set. Our correspondent Joe Wilson

:20:19.:20:20.

watched that match. All sorts of things can get to you

:20:21.:20:27.

on court. Within minutes of his match beginning, Novak Djokovic was

:20:28.:20:33.

challenging the umpire over how he handled challengers. It's two points

:20:34.:20:37.

in a row at the beginning of the match. Focus, please. The issue was

:20:38.:20:41.

the guy on the other side of the net... Ernest Gulbis was too good,

:20:42.:20:47.

grabbing an early break. Any ideas, coach? That is Andre Agassi, dressed

:20:48.:20:53.

as if for the school Nativity. Novak Djokovic wanted something and

:20:54.:20:56.

thought his team should know what it was. In fact, Gulbis helped by

:20:57.:21:02.

losing his way. This was out, repeated double faults and Djokovic

:21:03.:21:06.

broke twice. Suddenly, Gulbis through the set away, 6-4. Ernest

:21:07.:21:11.

Gulbis is the only Latvian man to have even played in a grand slam,

:21:12.:21:15.

reaching the semifinals of the French Open once. Now he played like

:21:16.:21:23.

a man who missed an opportunity, and knew it. The second set to Djokovic,

:21:24.:21:27.

6-1. Then, the three word Centre Court has heard almost routinely

:21:28.:21:31.

this tournament. Medical time-out. There's an epidemic of them, says

:21:32.:21:36.

John McEnroe. Chat among yourself, is Roger on soon? There were some

:21:37.:21:41.

really good moments in the third set, as Gulbis Claydon, by competing

:21:42.:21:48.

-- played on, and Djokovic raised his game. It went to a break. In the

:21:49.:21:58.

first couple of matches, I think that was the most focused I was on

:21:59.:22:04.

the court. Obviously, it came at the right time. Gulbis presents a great

:22:05.:22:09.

challenge. Into the second week, prepared for anything, Andre, it

:22:10.:22:13.

could rain! Joe Wilson, BBC News, Wimbledon.

:22:14.:22:15.

So it's honours even at the end of a memorable British

:22:16.:22:17.

The teams had gone into the third test having won a match each,

:22:18.:22:22.

and they couldn't be separated in Auckland.

:22:23.:22:24.

Owen Farrell kicked a penalty a couple of minutes from the end

:22:25.:22:28.

Let's hear from some of the key people involved.

:22:29.:22:33.

To come here to New Zealand against back-to-back world

:22:34.:22:35.

Considering we were written off, everyone was talking about this

:22:36.:22:38.

as a 3-0 whitewash and these players have shown unbelievable character.
