Iran-US tensions build

Global business news, with live guests and contributions from Asia and the USA.

Donald Trump has denied reports that he has been in conflict with some of his advisers over the increasing pressure on Iran. The US pulled out of the JCPOA, the agreement to restrict Iran's nuclear development last year. We hear from Hamid Baeidinejad, Iran's ambassador in London. There seems to have been a resolution in discussions between the US and Canada over trade tariffs. We hear from Dr. Jennifer Eberhardt, a professor of psychology at Stanford university who explores unconscious racial bias. On Saturday night hundreds of millions of people across Europe and beyond are expected to tune in to the Eurovision Song Contest in Israel - we hear from the BBC's Adrian Bradley. Plus we're joined throughout the programme by technology expert Stephanie Hare - she's in London, and Peter Ryan from ABC News is with us in Sydney.
