11:02 am
weapons in boggo but after 9 years of war the leaders of the main driving factions on the ground in libya are still refusing to meet face to face. is a mighty gathered in berlin on a sunday afternoon world powers united in a mission of hope german chancellor angela merkel invited representatives of more than 10 countries to press for a solution to the long running conflict in libya and it was only a few hours before the announcement of a breakthrough no more arms shipments to the war torn country. we can confirm that we have all agreed to respect the arms embargo and will also money toit more closely enough in the stack i continue to hold this in the gun that the fight is. however they haven't yet spelled out consequences for breaking the
11:03 am
embargo. instead the conference pledged not to offer military support to the warring parties. russia and turkey in particular have long involved themselves in libya's civil war. the rival leaders themselves refused to sit down at the bargaining table libyan premier. met with his ally turkish president wretch of type. while warlord khalifa haftar join talks with france as a manual among others much as its stake for the international players here libya has oil and gas and is a key transit point for refugees the conference insisted that a new political process is necessary to address the country's crisis. and today in but leading member states along with the regional and international going to is ations if send a strong signal that we are fully committed to supporting the peaceful resolution
11:04 am
of the libyan crisis. the real marker of the conference is success or failure won't comment till it's clear if the promises made here are being kept and that could take several weeks. joining me now for some analysis. from the european council on foreign relations welcome a lot of open questions what in the view was the biggest achievement of the conference on libya where you're right there are a lot of for an open question still but i think the difference to the conference is that we've seen in the past. it is that we have some substance we really have the parties that can took part in this conference commit to a cease fire to an arms embargo which isn't place effectively since 2011 but they've also talking about concrete measures to control this embargo this is not a one day conference this was a process that was organized by the germans in september and i think we have
11:05 am
substance now and definition of a new political process but we also have a lot of open questions ok so let's start and flesh out some of the issues that you've talked about and the 2 main drivers with their general a kind of a half that is about as prime minister. but they did not meet face to face what will it take for them to commit to a cease fire because the talk right now is of a truth but not for a cease fire i think it's important to remember that this is a burden process that started in september and the idea of this process was not to bring together necessarily the libyan partners this is for the future this is for the political process it's the toughest task of the u.n. in this case the idea was to bring together the external actors because they say they are the ones that sent the mercenaries send the weapons to general have their on the one side to set out on the other side you have a number of external actors here and this is where the german government was worried so the idea is to dry out the support and then create the conditions on the
11:06 am
ground that will improve the situation so one of the key elements is that ork external actors as you call them have promised to uphold the embargo how optimistic are you about that this is russia and to kill pretty deeply involved that yes i would be relatively positive when it comes to russia and turkey because they came to the berlin conference the president took part we've seen other high ranking delegates from from key states involved in libya taking part so i think the commitment is serious but you mentioned. party is on the ground and this is the big question mark and they were not ready to meet as i said it was not the idea of this conference but they are the germans invited set out and half that to berlin they were not ready to meet we saw a couple of accuse asians and we also see violations against the cease fire the day before the conference and on the day of the conference itself so this is the
11:07 am
biggest question mark how will that figure out on the ground but one positive outcome was that representatives of these 2 major drivers would be meeting next week yes we have now a process that is defined we have the military side that will meet and talk about the sick security sector we need to mobilise the demobilization of the militias we need to stop of this military conflict and also there's a political dialogue forum where both parties agreed under the hostess of the un to meet and to discuss the key point which we alternate with him italy will need to come to a unity government and a new political process because a cease fire and embargo is not enough and fun is usually and through this conference has germany and europe given it said more heavily leverage in dealing with the conflict in libya well i think it's a key point that germany and europe took on this important mission and in the past we have seen a negative role of the u. we know that france and italy for example on different sides they were involved in
11:08 am
this conflict so now the e.u. actually says we want to open a new chapter this is important for us for our security for european security from migration and we want a better future for libya and the high representative joe said orde has promised that the u.s. is going to play a bigger role potentially even with observing forces on the ground so they took up a big commitment john david on that from the european council on foreign relations that they said to have you with us thank you. turning now to china which is reporting a shop rise in the number of pneumonia cases caused by a new strain of corona virus officials confirmed the outbreak has not reached the capital beijing it comes at a time when pete millions are traveling across the country ahead of the new not new year holiday some 200 people have been infected and 3 have died in the central city of one where the virus was 1st identified cases have also been detected in thailand
11:09 am
japan and south korea. straight go to a to beijing and to 5 been a question mark fabiani there is a fear there could be a rapid spread of the virus by travis ahead of this weekend's new no new year's celebrations just how much travel will there be around china in the coming days. i would call the. maybe the biggest challenge bites here in china it's expected that more than 400000000 people will be on the move mostly via train but also plane bus costs and so on and for many for example migrant workers in beijing cities like shanghai it's. the only chance to reunite with their families but of course the virus could spread rapidly at this. virus outbreak originated as one of the transports hops a connecting the cities in the uk at the east coast with every yes the quicks and
11:10 am
100 people in the above being added risk from the virus. just today authorities confirmed the 1st case of the corona virus here in beijing but as you can see i mean daily life goes on people i'm not in a panic but what i can see if i talk to people on the street but also a scan social media posts there's a deep against the government and people are really pouring i think accurately it downplayed the the city in this of the virus because many people are it's you reminded of the time in 20022003 when there was the sars epidemic going on and just the 350 people alone in mainland china but dying of that virus and $300.00 more in hong kong and at that time people believed that the true government was transparent and didn't properly deal with the virus and famine so what measures are here authorities in china taking to contain the spread of this vitus. what we've
11:11 am
seen is that major airports so-called body temperature scan us where you know it for passengers to check their health status and we know from use agency reports it's here in cities like beijing and shanghai and at the hospitals have not yet come up with any specific accounting measurements but we've seen some negative accomplishments to this a lot of censoring but also a social media post by the government it's quite a sensitive to sprint news about the virus and also we know that patients are relatives of the patients who protected by the virus they spent too much not to talk to the media and also not to spread the news about the virus online and i think that in kansas you have paranoia or skepticism and transparency to see that the people are not informed accurately via for i mean pressure in beijing thank you very much. let me now bring you up to date with some of the stories making
11:12 am

11:15 am
based in 2005 in the heart of abundant attracts many visitors they've also divides opinion right next to the german parliament 2711 studios of concrete some of them over 3 meters high. the holocaust memorial and berlin is famous among visitors from around the globe daniel is one of them he's from the netherlands and today he's here for the 1st time going down here if you feel like you're really going into its. dollars of slots go. to smaller you get basically. it's really gives you. like the walls are getting very close like you're being locked up in a way isolation helplessness disorientation these at the reactions that american peter eisenman hoped to provoke in visitors who king among
11:16 am
the steels of the memorial to vogue the suffering of jews prosecuted during the holocaust. but some jewish visitors believe nothing can replicate the sorrow of that time as a 2nd generation we experienced the holocaust although i was not i wasn't born those years and those years we know these feelings of the people who were in the actual holocaust the cement wouldn't give me the feeling. that some children prefer to use the memorial as a playground rather than aside from member unless. that peta eisenman who is himself jewish has never had anything against that why not why not this is not sacred ground it is part of berlin and it you know when you walk in the
11:17 am
field you know it's something different than being over there and that's that difference that i'm judged what that means. making your own judgment and then you locked up but it seems that what makes the memorial so special is everyone's freedom to experience it in their own personal way. a new study by the n.g.o.s oxfam says the world's billionaires have more west and the poorest 4600000000 people combined and it says women are the ones who are most disadvantaged oxfam's inequality report claims 22 of the world's richest men have more money in assets that all the women of africa that each day women and girls across the world put in some $12.00 and a half 1000000000 hours of unpaid work now that's cooking cleaning and looking
11:18 am
after children and the elderly the that unpaid work is worth almost 11 trillion dollars a year to the global economy. now we go to india and look at how some women there are trying to break barriers and getting paid work. it doesn't pay much but this is how ect helps to support her $4.00 siblings and her mother like many 21 year olds she has big plans. ector has already finished a course in sewing technology and she's been attending training sessions with this youth and employability service to help her get a better paid job. i am determined to work i've had a very difficult life i've had problems with my family and other problems too but i've never accepted defeat i want to help my siblings build their careers if i get
11:19 am
a good job my mother doesn't need to work as a maid and other people's homes anymore i know i will succeed. many more women across india are pursuing further education but less than a quarter of those eligible to work have jobs or are even seeking employment concerns about safety and transport are some of the reasons why families as well as employers don't want women working men is easier for one thing bosses don't have to worry about them getting home before it's dark that's been a problem pinky kemarre has faced she travels nearly 2 hours from her village just to get to work and sometimes she has to leave early in order to get home while it's still light but she's already broken it to brew by becoming the 1st woman in her family to have an office job even if she had to fight to get it so i've struggled
11:20 am
a lot i wasn't allowed to work i had problems with the family but i feel very good about my 1st job i'm learning a lot i'm enjoying it. many women like pinky also struggle to work. or she's got them from wonder woman tries to work the family stops or they don't let her progress so they think she'll go out she could do anything don't let her out she'll dishonor us they don't trust her. about their safety when they go places will they return safely will someone harass them on the way will they be in danger we have to worry about all these things. so many barriers for women including ekta but still they persevere. the soaring inequality is also an issue of concern this week at the world economic forum in davos didn't we a correspondent spoke with. she is the c.e.o. of oxfam india she talked to him about changes businesses and governments can make
11:21 am
right now. mr of the heart your report highlights global inequality and the results are shocking especially when it comes to the amount of unpaid work done by women how can the situation really change. i think it's fairly clear that the billionaire will needs to and this is an economic system which is built on the exploitation of women and girls and also of the poor this system makes the rich people more richer and the poor continue to live in in poverty so this has to change dramatically and to do that i think the 1st ask is from the billionaires and the super rich they should not do any harm they should stop the rig rigging the system in their own feet and i think it's very critical that governments start acting and the 1st one is governments must ensure everybody pays a fair tax just imagine isn't it it's ironic that at this moment you see that
11:22 am
corporations and billionaires pay lower taxes than ordinary people so taxes and taxes and more taxes 2nd the governments need to invest heavily in public services public services like child care health care of the elderly the sick this is what is going to help the particularly the carrie kahn to me and the 3rd is to ensure that everyone gets a living wage. but there it is it really fair to blame the world's riches for these problems after all we know the situation is very complex. just look at the bloomberg data which says last year. drop $500000000000.00 added one trillion dollars to their wealth and let me give you another data since the global meltdown in 2008 you have seen the billionaire with actually going up by 60 percent and from 2000 to the bottom 50 percent of the global population continues to own
11:23 am
just on one per cent so i think it's important to this obscene in the quality needs to end we need to end the boom and i think yes we need to call a spade a spade so the truth behind the c.e.o. of oxfam india talking to my connection and demand on in down last. to the industry and by i mean if done on the style as a trash 10 for need to climb to 2nd in the table or for the visitors goes came in the 2nd half it was a miserable afternoon for head coach airgun klinsmann taking on his for what club. you're concludes men took his place in the had to drag out or sold out or lympics stadium facing off against the club that sacks him in 2009 in a tight 1st half they had the better chances of it never enough ski poking wide for buying when he already done the hard part. so far so good for the man whose promise
