9:03 pm
following assessment to take a listen to what the president had to say. what a great twelve days we've had twelve days over how many days if you have a lot of water. and a lot of great things that happen to you and i think that the world a lot of a lot of elements. in the process of being. ok we heard that adjective great a lot of times do you agree has it been a great twelve days for the u.s. president i mean it has been i would say a wake up call for what this administration is looking like globally the biggest takeaway i think was the decision by the eleven countries that were part of the transpacific partnership of negotiations to continue those negotiations without the united states before the united states was a prime mover of this negotiation and it was primarily a geo economic strategy to contain china and what we had in this case was a president who you know spoke to the chinese directly had some demands about rebalancing trade but ultimately walked away with very little sign from some
9:04 pm
cosmetic agreements and deals is you walking away from this trip with much at all in his hand besides a lot of flattery that spilled bestowed upon him he i mean one thing that you can say aside from these these very deals that are pretty much already in the pipeline is he has some personal relationship some personal affinities to leaders like president to tear to the philippines where there might be something to build on he also did get pretty robust support from japan and australia of these of the north korea i mean basically the region is closing ranks saying that north korea's bluster and illegal atomic weapons program is unacceptable the president of the united states is clearly behind this but besides that we're looking at a very different asia pacific right now one where china is ascendant china is positioning itself as the leader of the liberal world order maybe not the free world obviously china is a liberal but the economic liberal order you know of the country that will stand
9:05 pm
behind rule of law in the international system the free trade rights and the united states ceding that ground to china and the united states is also ceding ground as being the defender of these universal values which is human right right right i mean this is this is a consistency that. has come out even since the president gave a speech in the u.n. general assembly where he basically said our priorities are no longer democracy prosperity and security for the united states in the world but prosperity security and sovereignty for the world that's the america first piece of the puzzle and you know human rights democracy these values points are being deemphasized to the pleasure of some leaders like president to tear to like the chinese put to the displeasure of others like europe and australia and japan all right thanks verb it's me aspen institute germany tyson as always thank you very much thank you. it's not rescuers are scrambling to help earthquake victims on the iran iraq border more

9:10 pm
countries took a key step towards setting up a european defense union it's seen as a way of promoting unity in europe especially after breaks it but germany also says europe needs to be able to better able to defend itself if it can no longer rely on the u.s. as it once did. twenty three signatures under a far reaching defense pact that makes the a military union as well historic step decades in the making i have to say that i was looking at you will signing something that just one year ago most of us and most of the rest of the world considered impossible to achieve definitely to name an historic moment in european defense indeed defense is new ground for the e.u. european defense planning had long been resisted by britain but now stands its best chance in years at the same time the u.s. is pushing europe to pay more for its own security games if you know we are
9:11 pm
spending a lot of money but pretty much on the same things it is much smarter to coordinate we have half the defense spending of the us but only fifteen percent of the efficiency it's important if it's funny. more efficiency for example by pulling military logistics crisis response troops and jointly developing new weapon systems the initiative was led by germany and france paris wanted it to be as militarily ambitious as possible. it became clear the countries that participate have a great advantage for their defense this is a commitment for countries to do better to gether you also and it comes at a time of significant tension. don't german defense minister funda line also stressed. it was important for us especially after the election of the american president that we can organize
9:12 pm
ourselves independently as europeans this is complementary to nato but we also see that nobody will solve the security problems that europe has in its neighborhood we have to do it ourselves. europe is closing ranks and deepening integration after breaks that the pact also signals europe's move towards self-sufficiency in defense instead of relying only on nato and the us russia's president vladimir putin and his turkish counterpart richard tell you have ever won have reportedly agreed to focus on a political solution in syria the two leaders are meeting in the russian city of sochi for talks on syria fusion held his country's cooperation with turkey saying it was producing concrete results in creating the conditions for dialogue both the turkish and russian leaders stress that their relations are now back on track after being strained in recent years. for testers have disrupted an event hosted by the
9:13 pm
u.s. government at the u.n. climate talks in bonn germany now the head of the u.s. energy association barry worthington appeared to be taken aback take a look. at. the some two hundred people they're seeing in anti coal song to protest the use of fossil fuels and the white house's move to quit the two thousand and fifteen paris climate accord well the meeting in bonn aims to work out the details of that paris accord but today a new report from climate scientists overshadowed the session here's more. as the climate conference enters its closing stretch there was sobering news for the thousands of participants in bonn climatologists a c o two emissions increased all over the globe this year the surge comes after
9:14 pm
three years of little change which had generated measured optimism. a lot of people thought we were in safe territory we've been on a plateau for the past three years so they saw no problem we don't have to do much on this thing and among the countries with significant emissions increases is india but its representatives in bowen are promoting their country as a land of the future and criticizing highly industrialized nations india says these countries should sharply reduce their carbon emissions by the time the paris climate accord goes into effect in two thousand and twenty environmental groups support india's demand enough our guns club the indians are demanding clear signs from industrialized nations that they are going to act germany and the rest of europe have to play a crucial role here chancellor merkel will give a speech in the main hall wednesday and the whole world will be waiting to hear what she has to say on this. but for now progress is said to be sluggish on the
9:15 pm
main point of the agenda in bonn working through the key details in the paris climate accord the talks involve highly technical issues and many questions remain open. for the governor of california jerry brown he's in boston and he has built a reputation in the u.s. as a leader in fighting climate change. on you dean spoke with him today and she asked him what are the key points of his america's pledge to protect the client. yeah the pledge first of all is the state of the to the rest of the world that america is in we're in the paris accord we firmly believe in what all the other countries believe namely we have to keep the temperature below two degrees centigrade increase and we're going to do that not with the federal government because the federal government is on holiday with respect to climate change but california is in new
9:16 pm
york isn't the states of washington oregon virginia new jersey so there is a large part of america well over a majority that is committed serious climate action because we know global warming is an existential threat so that's why america's pledge is so important it's filling the gap a left by donald trump's statement that he was to pull out of paris we need leaders collective leadership on the part of governments everywhere to really decarbonize the world and that's what i'm committed to see seeing done and that was california governor jerry brown there at the u.n. climate conference in bonn germany. you're watching t.w. news live from berlin still to come two years after the budget plan we meet a survivor of the attacks the attacks that killed ninety people inside that paris concert venue on a night of terror but first. it's get some business news
9:17 pm
now have your see read that high here thanks very much brand yes we will be talking about one of the headlines today general electric is struggling to stay afloat it seems now c.e.o. john flannery has laid out his plan and it's going to hurt g.e. long buck the trend when it came to conglomerates the company managed to turn a profit from seemingly incompatible industries but that's all changed the company is rapidly losing value for shareholders its share price has actually dropped about forty percent if you can see here the share price is down from thirty two to just nineteen dollars and on top of that he is slashing the diffident from twenty four cents to twelve cents that's the eighth biggest dividend cut in its history that will help g.e. avoid a cash crunch it will also shrink operations to just keep three core businesses aviation power and health care that's all that's going to remain practically
9:18 pm
everything else will be sold off to the tune of twenty billion dollars flannery will even fire six board members saying that twenty eighteen will be a rest year has he put it he said we know what we need to do and it's show time well it's also show time for the reason i'm a who met european business leaders this monday and it must have been tough as well businesses in and outside of the u.k. are getting increasingly agitated they see that negotiations are going nowhere not knowing how relations between the u.k. and the e.u. will look like in the future they are demanding answers. if only life was as easy as these demonstrators in the center of london was saying on monday. next it is not a good day and it's never too late. prime minister to resign million agrees but the country is still hurtling towards bragg's it on the twenty ninth of march twenty nineteen with no deal. nervous european business groups who
9:19 pm
came to see mrs million downing street are known to concerned with one thing damage limitation they want the british government to back down so the country doesn't fly over the end of a cliff on the day. we've made it clear towards the e.u. commission and the british government that it is in our interest to avoid one thing the cliff. the end of relations between great britain and the european union you can avoid that if you want to avoid it and we hope we bolster their will to do so today in britain. but the clock is ticking and there's little more than hope right now what will happen to the many cross border companies how many jobs will be lost to resume a can't say in the automobile industry parts are delivered from one country assembled in another and then exported on to foreign markets many of these cross border transactions could be subject to british import tariffs in the event of a hard break that they could come to over two billion euros for german products so
9:20 pm
far britain and the e.u. have not found much common ground but if that doesn't change soon the u.k. could lose a lot of investment some of the big banks have already begun moving their stuff from london to other financial hubs like frankfurt. frankfurt as we know it is the hometown of germany's largest airline love tanzer by the way is saying it will boost domestic services by a thousand new flights a month and it's also promising cheaper fares lufthansa says ticket prices have been rising since it's bought up a bigger part of bankrupt competitor air berlin with flights frequently booked out of town just says that's because added trust authorities in brussels still have to approve the takeover until then it can't offer what where originally air berlin flights resulting in bottlenecks and high prices here in germany lufthansa has even had to use jumbos between frankfurt and berlin to satisfy the demand. and we say in the subject because the dubai airshow is one of the most important market places
9:21 pm
for commercial aviation and it's not only about showing off the planes but about the airlines placing orders as well the airbus a three eighty was once the star of the show as emirates its top customer used to buy dozens but orders are quickly dropping and the world's largest passenger aircraft could soon be phased out. as soon as proceedings in dubai got underway boeing got its first large order emirates airlines ordered forty of its cutting edge seven eight seven dreamliner with a catalog price of fifteen billion dollars we delivered from two thousand and twenty two onward the airline will go into two thousand and thirty and some of these will be used to replace the old that. which we are in the next year the beginning of the fair has been a huge disappointment for us it was rumored amir it would be ordering some new generation a three eighty super jumbos in advance of the state run dubai airline
9:22 pm
appears to be biding its time and letting airbus. negotiations are reported to be ongoing but it's not just about squeezing out bargain basement prices. hasn't had any major a three eighty orders for years and it's already said it will cut back superjumbo production starting in twenty nineteen only eight of them a year will be built to complete previous orders but emirates once a guarantee the a three eighty will be made for at least another ten years before it places further orders emirates could certainly put an end to a slack phase for the a three eighty but it won't be clear if the plane sales are about to take off again until the dubai air show is over. that's all from the business desk now it's more world news and we're going to france for that's exactly right here thank you france is remembering tonight the victims of the country's worst ever terror attacks which hit paris two years ago french president in my new micro-loan spent considerable time today meeting with the survivors and former
9:23 pm
president francois on then released balloons into the air in honor of the one hundred thirty people who died in the multiple attacks the american rock band eagles of death metal gave a surprise concert but the lead singer at times appeared overcome by emotion the group's concert at the back to cologne theater exactly two years ago turned into a bloodbath when islamic extremists dorms the concert venue parallel attacks also targeted cafes and the national stadium. well those attacks of two years ago in the heart of the french capital they sent shock waves across france and the world but the impact was greatest for those who experienced it and lived to tell about it we spoke to one survivor of the batek lon massacre about that fateful night and its reach into our very present.
9:24 pm
whenever christopher modahl walks past this place the memories come flooding back what happened here on nov thirteenth two thousand and fifteen changed his life forever ever since that day the battle plan has taken on a new meaning for him. to get. i'm very strongly attached to this place because it's in a good way. it's as if the better class had a soul and protected me so i like coming here because it's reassuring. and makes me think and remember what happened this illness on the so there. is stuff barricaded himself into a room behind the stage when the terrorists started shooting that decision saved his life he was at the concert with two friends one of them died during the attack he still finds it difficult talking about what happened and was haunted by what he had experienced for months afterwards this question. dramatic stress disorder.
9:25 pm
but i was incredibly tense and every little sound made me jump. i was playing by flashbacks and kept seeing images from that night hearing the sounds and smelling those horrible smells so they get apologetic and. christoph went to therapy to help him come to terms with his experience instead of shutting himself away at home he went out more so than before he wanted to feel alive these tatoos mean that night and event is forever a part of him they are complex. as a survivor you feel guilty that others had to die while you got away with your life now. these tattoos are like my own gun shop where. they show that i was there that night and who i am. that's all. things are better now and still life for the forty one year old will never be the
9:26 pm
same again also in a good way. i'm much more willing to take a leap now that. i've only been with my girlfriend for seven months and we're already talking about moving in together and having a child. i would have been much more hesitant to do that two years ago. but now i'm thinking seize the day. you need to go for things if there's a chance they will make you happy. that. kristoff things france has stood its ground against the threat of terrorism people are sticking together and not letting themselves be divided even after further attacks yet in one respect he says the terrorists have won that's what sort of kills the most france has restricted civil liberties. first by maintaining the state of emergency for so long . and then by enshrining many of those extra police powers and.
9:27 pm
in a way that's a victory for the terrorists or because they want to frighten us and make us give up some of our civil rights to do is. the war. was over that's his office more frightened than he was before frightened that he could lose another friend or relative to terrorism even more reason he says to live every minute of every day. sure and here's a reminder of the top story that we're following for you u.s. president donald trump has made philippines president take on the sidelines of an asian summit in manila hundreds of demonstrators turned out to protest the u.s. president. after a short break i'll be back to take you through the day join us for that will be right back.
