w. your questions about germany but again i had a medicare scare they were not a plan for him to. write to us on facebook we'll answer your questions. this is did every news live from berlin the german chancellor angela merkel tells t w she is ready to join talks to result in north korea crisis and she says donald trump is doing it all world. sanctions and enforcing the sanctions are the right answer but anything else with regard to north korea i think is wrong. and that is
12:01 pm
why we clearly disagree with the u.s. president in an exclusive interview chancellor merkel tells d.w. that diplomacy is the only way forward with pyongyang. also coming up hope and here within the next week i was efforts continue to find survivors in the rubble of tuesday's powerful earthquake. and hurricane maria paralyzes puerto rico leaving much of the u.s. territory without power or communication it is the worst of storms to hit the island in eighty years. i'm sorry so much got the good to have you with us germany's chancellor has a spoken out on the north korea crisis just days ahead of germany's general election i'm going markel said she disagrees with u.s. president donald trump's military ultimatum to north korea in an exclusive interview with g w merkel offered germany's assistance in negotiating
12:02 pm
a diplomatic solution on tuesday trump told the u.n. that america would destroy north korea if it continued to threaten the united states or its allies. lomas is the only way to solve the north korea conflict according to the german chancellor in an exclusive interview with t w hunger merkel spoke out in favor of multilateral negotiations involving international partners such as china russia and the united states even if this conflict is far away from germany it's one that also affects us that's fine i'm prepared as is the foreign minister to assume responsibility here. we took part in negotiating the iran agreement which i think is good and better than having no agreement at all. it took many years but in the end it did limit iran's possibilities for nuclear armament.
12:03 pm
addressing the u.s. president's threats to destroy north korea angela merkel had a special message for donald trump. we consider any type of military solution to be absolutely inappropriate and we're counting on diplomatic efforts this must be vigorously implemented in my opinion sanctions and enforcing these sanctions are the right answer but anything else with regard to north korea i think is wrong and that's why we clearly disagree with the u.s. president. with holes in her favor uncle americal can feel confident that she'll be reelected as chancellor of the a if he is likely to win seats in parliament for the first time machall ruled out ever cooperating with the far right party and she promised to take the concerns of those who feel disadvantaged seriously. my you know my answer is clear to solve people's problems the worries they have having
12:04 pm
their own jobs as well as decent schools and doctors to really take care of these issues but on the other hand to signal a clear start to hatred and violence. the interview with chancellor merkel was the last in a series of seven that included all top candidates of germany's major parties and recent surveys are correct on sunday young americans conservative c.d.u. c.s.u. will become the strongest political power and she could become one of the longest serving chancellors in german history. you saw in a poll there she's did of use editor in chief and she led that interview with the german chancellor angela merkel she is with us in studio now to talk more about the interview high in this story we have just a few days to go to the election and the polls are pretty clear chancellor merkel does look set to have another term as chancellor how confident is she seeing well she's confident she's like a saw the draw but you know she has high respect for the office so she would never
12:05 pm
take it as granted that she will be the next i mean i think she assumes that in all the polls speak for that but you never know you know the last days are always kind of tricky but she's very confident and you know well let's talk about some of the topics that she touched on she was stressing the need for diplomacy in a number of foreign policy issues in our interview she said first that she was willing to take a role in negotiations with north korea that was one question in the same press you called for the deal with iran to stand that that was very important let's just listen exactly to what she said. even though this conflict is far away from germany it's also affects us all and that is why i am prepared as is the foreign minister to assume responsibility. we took part in negotiating the around agreement which i think is good and better than having no agreement to toll. it took many years but in the end it did limits arounds possibilities for nuclear armament. and i think we
12:06 pm
must take the same path or a similar one with russia with china together with the us also in the case of north korea. in as listening to that message and seeing on the other hand the fiery rhetoric that's coming out of washington right now do you think this means that germany is going to take a leading role on the global stage well she really stressed two very very dangerous conflicts in the world and she i mean talking about north korea and iran this of really like tough tough conflicts to handle. i mean what we see i think is a more confident chancellor of germany germany the place of you trolls in the european union and we see europe in union which kind of gather strength. regarding the united states this has a lot to do with donald trump and his flip flopping no one really knows where or what he stands for. and i think that brings the european leaders together it wasn't only on the american who criticize donald trump really harshly it was also. the
12:07 pm
president of france. yesterday and the days before so i think europe is really getting stronger against donald trump looks like uncle merkel will be at the helm of that charge from europe all right our editor in chief has paul with us here in studio in us thank you very much. well on that iran question americal was backed up by her foreign minister said my gabriele he said the current agreement was needed to keep iran on track with the international community and he suggested the iran deal might offer a model for resolving the crisis with north korea since. it's almost tragic when the only functioning agreement to prevent the proliferation of nuclear weapons is in jeopardy at a time when we're seeing other countries like north korea acquiring nuclear weapons and we've got it leave us under the end of north korea. we now need these kinds of
12:08 pm
negotiations more than ever before and was annoyed. by germany's foreign minister there is that my gabriele saying we need those kinds of deals more than ever let's get more on that with the alley jeremiah senior policy fellow at the european council on foreign relations in london and we thank you very much for joining us there seems to be real concern here in europe that the iran nuclear deal will on rival a first of all remind us what are the main pillars of this deal what does it mean. well this deal was signed just over two years ago and essentially it puts a very stringent inspection and monitoring mechanism on iran's nuclear program to ensure that the international community is aware of the not some bolts of iran's nuclear program in addition its puts in place a lot of stringent nuclear commitments that iran isn't here to to ensure that the timeline as that it takes for iran to essentially create
12:09 pm
a potential nuclear weapon is hugely twelve twelve months and gives time for these national community to react and i preach many third team coverage where there was no inspection there was no restrictions on your nuclear program i didn't return iran gets a sanctions easing package which allows it to reintegrate into the global economic powerful particularly into the you are coming and so those are the building blocks of the deal but u.s. president trump keeps saying this is a terrible deal and his secretary of state a rex tillerson has backed him up let's listen to what tillerson had to say we clearly have significant issues with the agreement the president's been quite clear and articulate as to his concerns about the agreement itself authorities of the agreement the enforcement of the agreement ellie listening to
12:10 pm
those words how at risk is this deal. well like it is at risk the europeans have acknowledges that race starts why in the last eight months of this administration there has really been a stepped up and ordinated at. the e.u. from brussels together with germany france and the u.k. to really advocate in washington to members of congress and the u.s. president personally that this deal mistake and if the u.s. president walks away from it he will be so alone and this is what the american will not crawl and the british prime minister yesterday in new york all echoing this message so does that mean we could see cooperation between europe and the ron on this well certainly the ideal is to keep all parties to this nuclear deal on board including the united states every member plays a critical role in implementing this deal but if the united states does walk away
12:11 pm
there there is other avenues to salvaging this deal and this is where european involvement leadership is going to be absolutely critical and there needs to be contingency planning happening at the moment if there already is in tapping regarding how europe can offer a package to iran together with china and russia that keeps them on board with this nuclear deal going forward. to a palace a fellow at the european council on foreign relations on the way forward for the iran deal thank you very much. and remember it is only three days to go till a germany decides we want you to join the discussion on the election followed the coverage online i did have a dot com get your updates on our facebook page or you can also follow us on twitter and use the germany decides cashback our social media team is waiting to

analysis from our financial correspondent in frankfurt today and hear what's behind the revision i mean what what are those economic dangers and threats. good news for china coming in this morning and european wonder why because of course we are always hearing that the chinese economy is growing but s. and p. is simply saying that china is making too much debt in the past china has been asking for more and more credits in order to get every year more records you know speaking about the economy but the s. and p. is now fearing that the level of credit that china has been asking for in the past is simply too high and that this could have at the end very negative consequences that could even harm the economy does is now mean that doing business with china is not anymore safe well there's new seal it's called investment grade which still
12:20 pm
means that you can do business was china that still relatively safe but there shouldn't be any kind of unexpected events happening so how is all of this going down on the trading floor what are investors say well investors are monitoring this of course very closely china is a huge you know economical partner with germany and also with the european union but in general we don't see any major results and reaction so far happening the markets are still you're overshadowed by the fed meeting yesterday mostly mostly shares of banks are really profiting the strongest performer today here actually is the german bank account matts long but also because of a possible merger with another bank so they've got enough to think about there. in frankfurt thank you so much for this. and this of course could also be very

our permission to be in our territories and we've had enough for not now let them destroy our environment our daughters take our salmon away from us worked on these guys to to get our money to get out now. the occupied facility was built by a norwegian company marine harvest the largest salmon farming firm in the world. it has sales of around three and a half billion euros a year company representatives refused to speak with us the industry is profiting from canada's new trade agreement with the e.u. which is gotten rid of tariffs and increased production and exports but environmental activists say aquaculture is damaging wild stocks of fish. when they migrate upstream from the pacific to reproduce they swim right past the fish farms
12:24 pm
