i sure have support from european leaders for ukraine as the commission recommends it gets you candidate status. ah, hello nick clark, this is al da 0 live from also coming up. the 3rd day violent protests designing a grows in india against the new military recruitment program. the remainder of the bullet to kill down to 0. john, the serene. i club experts say it's widely used by israeli forces. china launches its 3rd aircraft carrier and what's being described as a major military advance. so the u commission is a recommending ukraine and mold over as candidates for european union membership. it's the 1st step of many and a lengthy process before the full status within the european union can be achieved
2:02 pm
. in the view of the commission, ukraine has clearly demonstrated the country's aspiration and the country's determination to live up to european values and standards. ukraine before the war had already embarked on its way towards the european union for 8 years now. it had already been gradually moving closer to ours union. we got to correspondence only by for us on those her child struck for it is in cave. but 1st, let's bring an dominant cane has been following developments in brussels from berlin. so domain 1st are talk with through what this is all about. the nuts and bolts of this development. the nuts and bolts of this are pretty simple. the government in care of wants to join the european union . the commission in brussels. it seems wants to help here to the government and
2:03 pm
give to achieve that. but the devil is in the diesel as candidates. now the ukrainians must comply with several different criteria. but the most important ones are they have to prove that they have a stable democracy. they have to prove that they have a functioning market economy. they have to prove that the rule of law pertains throughout their country. and they have to sign up to accepting all parts of e, you legislation, and that includes joining the e u at some point, joining the euro rather when they joined the e. u, if they joined the e. u. and one huge caveat here is that this is a particularly lengthy period that they are now going to go in. there are 5 other countries until today that is now 7, including moldova and ukraine. but the other 5 countries have all been waiting as candidates to become members of the e. u for a very considerable time, and they still haven't achieved us. so what this represents right now is
2:04 pm
a step forward is an acceptance by the european commission, from the words of president fonder lion that ukraine has done some good work. but there is a lot still, a head's no question about last. adore, thanks for that. so. busy let's head over now to key if we can speak to our corresponded child stratford who's standing by for so and just this recommendation potentially that come through. it is good for ukraine in the long term. but what about in the short term fight? the short term war against russia. does it both the crane in that fight? i think, nick, yes, is this general sense that if this candidacy recommendation does not go through then certainly amongst ukraine and it's western backers that could potentially bolden the russian president vladimir putin. so this is certainly the beginnings of positive news as we heard from dominic there, there is a very long process ahead. in the last few minutes we've heard both from the head
2:05 pm
of the, the office of the president, andre yellow mack, who said, expressed how grateful the president's office is, was for this potential recommendation. he said that the european commission provides an action to start negotiations for membership. our task is to do everything as quickly as possible. we are working and then literally in the last 5 minutes present. zalinski himself has also come out and made a statement, saying that this will bring our victory closer. he said, i expect a positive results next week, referring to that e. u summit on the 23rd 24th, where we are going to see european countries say more about this and potentially voting on it. so it is a positive step. but as we heard from dominic, there are very strict conditions that are, that are being demanded of ukraine and with respect to tackling corruption with respect to the rule of law, it seems high,
2:06 pm
a legal system will be scrutinized by brussels and it has to, it basically has to comply with the standards that brussels sets out. so as we heard yesterday, also from the french president and the, the german chancellor, all of shots that were visiting here. they said that this was the 1st step in a very long process. indeed. and as dominic again says, there are a number of other countries that applied full membership of the you, a number of years ago. and those negotiations are still an a still happening. so a positive sign for ukraine as expressed by the prison of this country, volota, man, zalinski, or johnson, that charles stratford reporting them from keith. at least one person has died in india in protest, ever new military recruitment program. it is the 3rd day of demonstrations which are being held in several states and behalf state protest is set forth to government office office and trained carriages during confrontations with police.
2:07 pm
currently, young recruits are automatically offered a permanent role, but under the new policy will be let go off for a maximum of 4 years without a pension. only a select few will get an offer to stay on more than this. let's begin. poverty, metal from new delhi and public tell us what's happening now and how the authorities respond. there is immense anger and frustration violent protests are going on across the country. as far as the security situation is concerned, one person has been confirmed dead because of the violence of dozens of people are injured. dozens of trains have been torched. this has affected hundreds of trains across the country. stations have been vandalized, roads have been blocked and protested. want the government to roll back. this new policy from military recruitment in the us military is one of the largest in the
2:08 pm
world. it cost billions of dollars every year. the government basically wants to reduce some of the costs and expenditure on salaries and pensions and redirect some of that money to upgrading military equipment. so instead of offering a for the 17 year tenure to soldiers, it will allow recruit bank for 4 years after which some will get that full time job, which has health benefits and has pensions. of the government believes this will also reduce the average age of soldiers. our analysts do think there are merits to this because this will more nice the troops, but they point out that the timing and the implementation of this is not ideal for one economic recovery. india has been slow and unemployment has been very high or appropriately with that thanks very much. probably mcdonald's reporting there from the deli l t 0 has excuse, exclusively obtained an image of the bullet that killed our colleague sharika of
2:09 pm
last month. the palestinian american was shot in the heard by israeli forces while she was on assignment in the occupied westbank. many in the international community have condemned her killing and continue to call for an independent investigation. as a back, as this report, the remains of the bullet that killed journalists cheering. actually, this image is been broadcast for the 1st time and shows the type of ammunition used to kill the veteran algebra journalist and the occupied west bank last month. according to experts, the green tip bullet is capable of piercing armor and is used in a m for rifle. when we simulated a green tip bullet using 3 d models and according to ballistic and forensic experts, the munition that ended shrink life was a 5.56 millimeter caliber. the bullet was 1st designed and manufactured in the united states. according to the palestinian prosecutor's office and the autopsy report, the bullet entered the lower part of cheering head to avoid ricocheted of her
2:10 pm
helmet and lodged itself in her head. i think another interesting fact, fact who has to be brought into consideration is the fact that there are a number of strike marks on the tree next to which terrain was standing. that indicates to me that the, there was not, she didn't die as a result of a random shot. as a result, a fight that was going on at the moment. the fact that there were a number of rounds that stopped lap tray and that she was also hit that indicate that she it looked very much like she was being targeted time. we have used 3 d models to identify the types of weapons israeli soldiers were using. in this video, we found it was a m for rifle. the type of gun that uses 5.56 caliber bullets. open source data supports the fact the israeli special unit accused of shooting sharing uses this type of weapon used in
2:11 pm
a non combat situation. fight by the israeli army at clearly identifiable journalist doing her job. oh, justice for sharing is yet to be delivered. accountability, still not taken place. questions remain unanswered, including if an order was given to kill her. why was she shot despite been clearly marked as a journalist and posed no threat? what made in his res soldier, target her from such a short range? all of this is further reason why the palestinian authority and al jazeera media network have demanded an independent investigation into the killing of sharon, a blackly. i said, bake al jazeera let's enough from phyllis bennett, who's a fellow at the institute for policy studies. and she thinks the u. s. can take tangible steps to stop is really impunity. it's quite likely that the both the, the, the, the rifle that was used and the bullet that was used came from manufacturers in the
2:12 pm
united states. the united states pays for 20 percent of israel's military budget, so it makes us complicit in what that military does. there is a u. s. law known as the way he act. that says explicitly that the united states may not provide any weapons, any training, any military support to any unit of any military, anywhere in the world. that has carried out a gross violation of human rights. the killing of sharina was a gross violation of human rights. the united states needs to start just for starters, to investigate on its own, whether the late law was violated by the unit of israeli soldiers. whether or not we know the name of the individual israelis claim they know it. we don't know. but we know that they are aware which units were deployed to the janine refugee camp on that day. were those units using weapons or bullets that were provided by the
2:13 pm
united states? that's the 1st question. if so, that have to be cut off the media. that could be one way of getting out from under this kind of long standing support for impunity. there's other things that the united states can and the, what the, by the administration in my view should do. they could invoke the late he act, they could investigate the question of u. s. weapons. they could also announced that they will no longer carry out the policy of attacking and isolating. and in the, in the trump years actually imposing sanctions on the international criminal court . a still had her on al jazeera nigeria in morning funerals of the health of some of those killed an attack on the catholic church. earlier this month heading the campaign trail candidates vying for seton, frances national assembly rally support, and of the 2nd round of voting on sunday.

2:18 pm
pro west, but it's also very significant when you look at the current geopolitical situation or in the waters surrounding china, specifically in the south china sea. now if you look at taiwan, for example, the growing tensions there tie one of the democratically self ruled island, beijing sees it as a robe. chinese character and chinese prison achieved in paying has said a number of times that will be re unified with the mainland, peacefully, preferably but by force if necessary. so for sure, this growing step forward when it comes to chinese navy, china navy is going to be seen as an increasing threat for taiwan. it's also significant when you look at the growing rivalry with the us, the us, the but in administration, in particular, has been moving to strengthen its ties with asia pacific countries. specifically to counter china is growing influence in the region and it's growing military life policy and officials say at least 3 men had been killed by israeli forces during
