5:04 pm
our own hands and that's what we did by forging this new defense cooperation and also looking more and the challenges of migration we know there are still differences of opinion and differences of approach within the union on this but we'll continue to work on this. it's all about working together so not just defense and migration but many other areas as well yeah i mean is she talked about this idea of a deep and european security policy common security policy but she immediately went on to say that that would include common development policy and i think she's thinking there as she also said in particular of africa the importance for europe of having do good relations with its major neighbor continent and doing what it can to stabilize countries there to improve the economy is there she said that migration is of course destabilizing in europe all of these things are things that

5:06 pm
said he talked about a european rapid response force i didn't hear that from anglo-american today she was very much broader in her lines but i think from the tone you could see you know this was a good warm up act for macro later on i mean of course angle americal stands a little bit to one side she's not looking for radical change emmanuelle mccraw he's younger he's more dynamic he's got a different image and maybe he thinks he can sort of you know steal a march or we'll see a simon young faqir. not a psycho because of the other stories making news around the world the first of three brazilian judges are considering considering the appeal of former president luis ignacio the silver known as luma has voted to uphold his conviction look at reality his supporters ahead of the decision which could see him barred from running for office again. so-called islamic state has claimed responsibility for a deadly attack in afghanistan don now stormed an office of the save the children

the cross border offensive that some german lawmakers are calling illegal contracts to upgrade the tanks are being put on hold. the shelling is relentless turkish forces a stepping up their offensive in northwest syria they using german made tanks to roll into afrin the german government had recently considered reinforcing these tanks against landmines at least until the turkish offensive began that upgrade now seems to be off the table. the sadness to germany is following the reports about the turkish military intervention in northwestern syria with great concern because . it that's why the government is calling on all parties involved to end all military actions and is demanding an unconditional access for humanitarian help less than three weeks ago germany's foreign minister met with his turkish counterpart in a bid to improve relations the two also discussed the upgrade of german tanks in
5:09 pm
turkey that was before the military operation in syria began turkish president added one says it's justified but it's provoked outrage in germany. i think nato has to have a closer look at this. is not a political alliance but it has to step in if a nato partner does certain things on the periphery of europe on its own account. germany's ambassador to iraq has now asked the turkish defense minister to explain the specifics of the military operation berlin's military hardware sales to turkey remain in the spotlight german military trucks have also been spotted on the syrian border. stephanie bish is a member of the board is top of the left in party d. link the welcome to d w i'm just a bit of background first of all because i think that the german political
5:10 pm
situation when it comes to defense sales is quite interesting the german government makes a decision which it then refers back to the parliament for approval or otherwise is that the way no is a parliament has no decision in question of selling weapons or arms it's just the decision made by the government and we are discussing that parliament should have more power in those questions right so now that the governments are suspended discussions about upgrading the german tanks do opposition parties like yours support that decision i think it is much too less if you hear the language of the ministry of foreign affairs that they are telling us that they have some concerns that that is much too soft for three c. there is a clear breach of international law it is not allowed that a country like turkey can go into another country and sending tanks c.-r. and so what i expect from our government is first of all saying our nato partners

in mission together in syria we should end the german awful armed forces in this mission so you delinquent had its way germany would have nothing to do with what's going on syria at all i think we have one bought this is the united nations security council this is the one organization which can decide if countries could go to another country to prevent a much more so much for us war but the united nations never asked that the german armed forces of the united states are there that turkey is the against international law we have four out of five permanent members of the united nations security council are fighting in this war we have a total mess everyone is against everyone and i've. i think we should end this and giving back the power to the body in the united nations if you say give the power back to the united nations as you said four out of five security council members
5:12 pm
involved the u.n. has the power it appears just not to be prepared to use it yet this is a problem and it is a problem what we should address to the united states of america and to the russian federation they have their problems with each other but the result of those problems is that one single body event which can make such decisions is not able to work and our government didn't even ask united the united nations security council they just said yes to being part of a mission from which i think that this mission is against international law and now with the actions of turkey really are on the point where we have to say stop this is no longer. part of who took to thank you for joining us tonight and for dealing to thank you. this day w.'s live from berlin still to come the long wait for the return of a child we chant chimes of mother whose dogs are left four years ago to fight recently stated i still hasn't come home. first i get hot alpha's is here with more

from davos as i feel it's not just i love our clear dressing but has been there in davos this strong european focus of the swiss alps today francis emmanuel mark is due to speak later and was spain's skin philip who took to the stage he delivered a message that increasingly puts europe at all it's with the united states the e.u. is open for business and wants to preserve free trade. a sunny day in davos as europe takes center stage king philippe the sixth of spain began proceedings campaigning for european unity not so long after his country was a symbol of the economic divide spreading through the years. in short we can state that spain now has a very competitive economy and represents an outstanding investment opportunity despite being a cause for concern in their european union just
5:14 pm
a few years ago today spain is driving growth and making a positive contribution to the consolidation and strengthening of the european union europe is open to all that's the message the spanish king was trying to send especially to those who are decidedly more inward looking like the u.s. delegation which is right ahead of president donald trump who was later but the country's treasury secretary is already laying the groundwork for his boss. can be terrific we have a great story to tell while some important meetings we couldn't be happier to be here with us here in the region you know. well what the president talk about that but it's really all about economic growth opportunities to invest in free and fair trade. so we're looking forward to a very careful not everyone is as enthusiastic anti-capitalist protests broke out in zurich late tuesday night mainly to register disapproval about trump's impending

5:16 pm
done wrong no i think my good best together is wanting to create a level playing field and when investors say of qualcomm or apple step back they should be able to agree that that benefits everyone employees consumers and lastly the shareholders as well companies even if they're today find they might be tomorrow the victim of companies who are wrongdoing who are breaking the rules so you not only have a needed higher prices than would be expected but it also hinders things like innovation the creation of new jobs when you do that so i don't think anyone's out to get anyone it's a level playing field. which is staying in the u.s. ten billion dollars in losses in the fourth quarter of last year that's a staggering news coming from general electric today what's behind it. yeah and that already after general electric share prices tanked in the past year and an
