7:02 pm
a time of renewed global tensions. you know we know committee has decided to award the nobel peace prize for twenty seventeen to the international campaign to abolish nuclear weapons. that you never based organization is more commonly known as i can it owned a significant victory when the un adulthood a symbolic nuclear treaty addressing the issue the chair of the norwegian nobel committee said that the risk of nuclear weapons being used is currently greater than it has been for a long time. when you. take a historical look it seems like there have been moments where it's been more engagement among nuclear states to.
7:03 pm
disarmament initiatives i do not believe we are in such a moment today. none of the nine no nuclear powers have signed up to the new do entreating pushed by the group. the award also comes amid heightened tensions over north korea's nuclear development and us president donald trump is criticism of a deal curbing iran's nuclear program something i can find deeply concerning. i think that there and deal is really important and it will be really really unfortunate and a huge security risk for the world if that was ripped up especially at a time when iran is complying with the deal. so i think that treating the deal needs to remain be supported. and has pledged to step up its campaign and to do even more until all nuclear weapons are eliminated.
7:04 pm
well earlier my colleague rupert reed evolved to caught up with a board member of the icon chapter here in germany and got her reaction to winning the nobel peace prize. misho how surprised were you this morning oh completely surprised we were just taken totally we just didn't know that this was really coming i really thought it would go to someone else and we're very very happy this year two thousand and seventeen the u.n. treaty on the ban of nuclear weapons was signed but not by all countries so what do you think what effect could this noble produce peace prize how well it was signed by the first fifty just under twenty three september but one hundred twenty two had already passed its and they they were passed in negotiations and so we expect that within the next year they will also sign and ratify it which is really you know a majority of states in this world so if you already have
7:05 pm
a majority saying you carry weapons. it's rather hard for the small group of about forty states that still rely on nuclear deterrents to just ignore it so that's the main effect that it will have is that they will have to actually you know get to grips with the fact that this treaty exists among the forty countries that didn't sign the treaty is germany germany itself doesn't have any nuclear weapons but it is within nato and germany said today well we share the same goal i can but we don't really think that. that this is the best way to go to reach the goal so what you say about well the first thing is that germany doesn't have any when you corrections of its own but it does have u.s. nuclear weapons on its soil and not only does it have those weapons here it also trains pilots to fly them should they ever be used so we're actively taking pants in germany and in the planning and also you know. the actual technical
7:06 pm
backing as it were to support and giving soil for these nuclear weapons and a possible nuclear war so to just. somehow or another this is just not the way to go about it when germany could if they were to join this treaty it would make an enormous difference if one of the allies of the united states my old country the united kingdom and france was to say we don't want nuclear weapons anymore we're not the lying on nuclear deterrence for security that would make a massive difference what difference what the nobel peace prize for all i can do especially here in germany well it's the first thing is we'll be able to afford more people to be able to work full time for us instead of all being voluntarily you know at these conferences having to pay all own flights and i mean up until now it's everything's been out of our own pockets basically so that's one thing but the
7:07 pm
main thing really is the media interest that we now have which we never had before and it means that people will actually start to hear about this this they didn't hear about it until now something member of i can join you thank you so much. and on social media lots of reactions are to the announcement director general with the european commissioner stefan i'm a service c. writes congratulations i can on twenty seven peace nobel prize our determination to be a nuclear weapon free world must continue the nobel prize twitter account for is the winner for being the leading civil society actor in the effort to achieve a prohibition of nuclear weapons under international law then right the asia pacific director of icann has responded to the award announcement as follows a great honor that we have just been awarded the nobel peace prize the twenty seven
7:08 pm
thousand for our work to outlaw nuclear weapons. all right we're going to take a turn now add to that increasingly tense standoff in spain a top spanish official in catalonia has apologized for the use of police force last week and some eight hundred people were injured in clashes with law enforcement when the region held an unauthorized independence referendum meanwhile a spokesman for the government in madrid suggested catalonia hold new regional elections to try and settle the crisis sparked by its push for independence he also addressed last weekend's police violence in a statement take a listen growth will result in most we all know that the security forces were carrying out the judge's order to prevent a vote that was illegal. they were acting because the local police had failed to do so. they went in to prevent voting and not to target voters. don't the fact some people did suffer the consequences of that
7:09 pm
is regrettable. well i mean while catalonia as regional government has announced the final results of that an authorized independence referendum they say some ninety point eighteen percent of those who voted supports the session that's out of less than half of the region's population that took part in the vote catalonia leaders appear to be inching away from a pledge to declare independence within forty eight hours of those results the speaker of the parliament said catalan leader carlos pushy the mont would speak in a parliamentary session on tuesday and would answer questions on quote the political situation. well lo with the much dreaded prospect of no deal being reached between the two sides that can stave off more tensions let's bring in our very own anna sophia for the latest she is in barcelona hi anna sophia something's
7:10 pm
gotta give but the two sides aren't budging let's start with the president and the party are they still on track to the clear independence from spain in a couple of days. well that's the big question actually and there are different voices. some party even important party members saying that everything is staying the same everything is going to plan and yes they will definitely stick to their plans to the declare independence on monday other sides seem to try to ease the tension and some even see even karla's puts them on the catalan leader trying to ease the situation as he has actually postponed his speech from monday to tuesday and he's also chosen a more careful wording he wants to talk about the current political situation now so there are mixed signs and it's very unsure what's going to happen in the city
7:11 pm
from the spanish perspective the integrity of its territory in its current state at least is sacred and we've heard official strike a more conciliatory tone today is that an opening and why didn't your which out earlier. well yes this might be another sign that things are starting to move here as representative here catalunya of the madrid government has apologized for the police violence that took place on sunday during sunday's referendum. many people here are asking why now and why so late just as you there is still no explanation for that but yes it might be a step toward more easing like a better situation an improvement of the situation and a step towards maybe dialogue hard to do to amuse and sophie see even in barcelona
