managed by for. this is the w. news coming to you live from the european union presents a united front in dealing with your role on iran's foreign minister meets e.u. leaders in an attempt to bolster the two thousand and fifteen nuclear deal tehran says it will no longer cooperate with the terms of the agreement if washington re imposes oil sanctions we go live to brussels for the latest also coming up on the
4:19 pm
american says she's optimistic that she can strike a deal with the social democrats and have all new elections that says germany's main parties go into a final day of exploratory coalition top. and bottom protests spread across tunisia as anger over price hikes spilled into the streets one person has died and more than two hundred people have been arrested as authorities crackdown on demonstrators. hello i'm terry martin good to have you with us. iran's foreign minister mohammad javad zarif has met with this issue counterparts in brussels in a show of unity for the twenty fifteen agreement aimed at ending iran's pursuit of nuclear weapons ministers from germany france britain and the e.u. foreign affairs chief frederica marini voiced their support for the deal one day
4:20 pm
ahead of key sanctions keep sanctions decision by washington the deal is under threat as u.s. president told trump will decide on friday whether to reimpose oil sanctions on tehran let's hear exactly what he had to say about the deal. the deal is working it is they're leaving on its main goal which means keeping the iranian nuclear program in check and the surveillance the i.a.e.a. has come in rich noyes to see that iran is fully complying with the commitments made on the agreements as. well let's cross over to brussels now where our correspondent max hoffman is standing by for us just heard there from federico moga rini what are the other foreign ministers who are attending those discussions today what are they been saying they underline what federer said some finley way of veiled warnings though towards the usa basically warning donald trump not to meddle
4:21 pm
with the nuclear agreement we have the german foreign minister said we want to protect the deal from undermining no matter from which side it might come so that's pretty clear that the not talking about iran here because they also repeated a couple of times here that iran is complying with the deal ok well it is feared that president trump might still pull the plug on that iranian nuclear deal he has acted unilaterally in the past if he does pull the plug what can the europeans and the iranians do to salvage the agreement. well we understand that his administration told him not to pull the plug but you're right he has not always followed what his staff has told him to do or has wanted him to do now if they really pull the plug on this is going to be hard to keep iran from complete to comply with the deal because the us were an even more important partner in this
4:22 pm
deal than the european union although the european union did take the lead in the go she hated the whole deal now the europeans know that that's why they're trying to offer something to donald trump also they did that during this press conference for example said we do realize that there are issues with iran that are beyond the scope of this nuclear deal for example ballistic missile testing or also the role that iran is playing in the whole region destabilizing for example in syria also in yemen and that's why i said during that press conference we want to start talking about those issues that are beyond the scope of the nuclear agreement as soon as possible to find solutions there and although he warned the u.s. saying don't meddle with this nuclear agreement indirectly at least he also conceded to them yes we need to do your right we need to talk about these things ok so there is an effort there united effort to try to encourage the trump ministration to maybe come around now iran has been witnessing a wave of protests in recent days there are
4:23 pm
a lot of things at play in iran will that be discussed in those talks today in brussels. they did talk about that they all they also announced that they would talk about that not only the role of iran in the whole region but also what is happening the destabilizing factors of the protests in iran at the moment that's something that is worrisome to the european union because iran is a lot closer to the to your of than it is to the united states that's one of the reasons why the french president himself in my remark on the bill last week and said it's so important to keep that nuclear deal because it's one of the few means we have to actually influence all the other things that are happening in iran at the moment. in brussels thank you so much for a look now at some of the other stories making headlines around the world today and the death toll from the devastating mudslides and flooding that hit southern california earlier this week has risen to seventeen authorities are continuing to search for over a dozen people who are still missing the mudslides destroyed around one hundred

4:25 pm
conservative bloc is sitting down for its fifth day of discussions with the center left as the the two sides are said to have made progress on issues like taxation and clean energy but have left a more sensitive policy disagreements until today if successful the c.d.u. will enter into formal coalition negotiations with the s.p.d. led by mocking scholtz if not germany could pace fresh elections and an uncertain future for chancellor merkel the chancellor spoke briefly to the media on her way into those talks today let's listen to what she had to say was. more can often be there are still big hurdles to overcome. if the t.v. was speaking for my party i could say it will be a constructive as possible in our search for compromises. but of course we are also aware that we want to deliver the right kind of deal for the country. that means it's going to be
4:26 pm
a hard day and i'm going into it with full of energy and talked and if this isn't the mention of the public expect solutions from us and that's the spirit my party and i will be pursuing in these talks today that. that's not. you know has michela as following those talks for us at s.p.d. headquarters here in berlin with chancellor merkel saying voters expect solutions from their leaders i asked me if those leaders are any closer to delivering. that's the big questions that the all sides going into these negotiations here at the social democrat headquarters are being decided the upbeat but they keep stressing what a tough struggle lies ahead of them with key issues still unresolved we understand that intense discussions are still going on on the issue of migration where the conservative and i'm going to own party wants to see c.c. want to see further cuts in benefits for people who claim asylum here and many but
4:27 pm
also every new restrictions on people with unless asylum status for there not to be able to bring their relatives to germany safely and on a legal basis now those working groups are still talking to each other so we don't really know the details of all sides keep stressing that nothing is decided until everything is decided to hear at the same time that statement that we saw from the german chancellor only lasted one minute that's significantly less than. spoke the social democrat leader who certainly has to deliver something and if he can bring his own posse on board to continue these talks after all this will be put to a vote any kind of agreement that could be found during this process of coalition talks and the grassroots of the social democrats would have the final say so he has to deliver something and that was the w.

political correspondent talking to me a little earlier now tunisia has been rocked by a third night of bottle clashes on the rest over government imposed price hikes intensifies riot police have used tear gas to disperse protesters in the capital tunis and other cities one man has died scores have been injured in more than three hundred a rusted the prime minister had warned the rioters to expect heavy security presence on the streets. not even threats of a clampdown could keep them away hundreds of disaffected tunisians clashed with riot police and another long night of violent unrest with both sides trading tear gas and rocks. some coming off watch for where. i was trying to talk to one of the policemen and suddenly one of them help me with his baton. that's been. seven years ago to near zero was the cradle of the
4:29 pm
arab spring after a revolt against rising costs that revolution may now be history but its spirit and its cause lives on for many in the rural heartland economic frustrations and fury go hand in hand. there was no doubt. this is how we had to endure these clashes after a day of work even our bus was attacked with tear gas. we need to find a solution for you thought politicians raised our living costs but why don't they take a pay cut we have to suffer taking two buses to the factory to earn just one hundred euros. earlier this week one protester paid with his life and dozens more have been injured as economic hardship leaves its mark on china's ear. well joining us now for more on this story is abraham from our arabic desk hi. thanks for
4:30 pm
coming in well we've seen three nights of violence now across tunisia stay that more than three hundred people have been arrested for so-called submersed subversive acts what more can you tell us about this it is not unlikely to see demonstration in tunisia this time of the year it is the anniversary of the revolution that broke out seven years ago in what became known as the arab spring what i knew all this time these protests have taken the economic problem as their target and these are not political issues as it were in twenty eleven but economic problems the government has introduced a new budget in twenty in twenty eighteen that has increased the value added tax as well as social contributions and there's a great deal of frustration about that. it remains to be seen where this will how this will develop in the next coming days but over ten cities have been targeted with these protests and. one of them is where.
4:31 pm
the arabs the so-called arab spring broke out almost almost seventy seven years ago so so you say there is a tradition for this protest being held this time of year break these are different because they are focusing on the economic part of all the rest there are measures how do you see this playing out what kind of sorties do to defuse this well so far the response from the authorities has actually been quite lukewarm we've we've heard the prime minister on tuesday give out a statement saying that citizens have the right to protest this is a democratic country however he is very disappointed in seeing that of these demonstrations have. have escalated into vi was most mostly mostly at night yesterday however things escalated a little bit more in a visit to one of the affected areas he pointed fingers he pointed his finger to the national front which is a coalition of eleven liberalist sorry. leftist parties into just saying that they may have a connection with these acts of vandalism so
4:32 pm
a direct accusation so there might be more to the story than meets the eye who knows we'll see. you know many people look to tunisia and remember the arab spring and they know that you know we know it started there but tunisia is comes through the arab spring much better than many of its neighbors currently are no wondering could that all be undone is could democracy instability be under threat now in tunisia. well one should not forget that since twenty eleven tunisia has had nine governments nine changes of governments in seven years is a lot especially for young people and none of these nine governments have been able to tackle the economic problem effectively the i.m.f. has had given tunisia. or. twenty fifteen i believe two point two point five i think to two point nine billion dollars and in twenty seventeen and twenty in december of twenty seventeen has directly told the tunisian government then it needs to get it its act together it needs to take measures to decrease its deficit
4:33 pm
so yes many changes however the challenges the challenges still remain for the government of tunisia and for its young people thank you so much for talking with us from arabic to us. well that's your international news for now is going to be with us in just a moment to bring you up to date on all the latest business stories happening around the world don't go on. the. story people for information. opinions they want to express d.w. on facebook and twitter today in touch follow. townsend's

. story. and try. and smile. as you can imagine. emotions and now. you know. every weekend on d w it's. another year of record growth for germany official figures out today show the economy expanding by two point two percent last year. doing something right it's. just cause all.
4:35 pm
saints all the car industry is hijacking the consumer electronics show. also the waldron on tog well. just in changing times small startups are now leading the transition. in the asian tiger nation. this is the w. business i am going out office in berlin welcome to germany continues to write its economic sists accept story with booming employment a boy and stock market and bulging state coffers the german economy grew two point two percent in twenty seventeen official data published on thursday shows that's the fastest growth in six years in twenty fifteen germany's gross domestic product rose one point seven percent a year later the economy grew one point nine percent and as we've heard last year germany's g.d.p. edged up two point two percent according to the national statistics office how did
4:36 pm
it happen while products made in germany are popular around the world german exports have been on the rise for years the country has experienced a construction boom and because saving doesn't bring any returns due to near zero interest rates german consumers have been on a very un german shopping spree last year. well one contributing factor to those growth figures has been tourism. boom for an eighth consecutive year in germany the latest report from the distorters statistics office predicts the nation had a record breaking four hundred fifty nine million overnight stays last year there would be three percent more than the year before it follows news that twenty nine point six million tourists stayed in our come a day sion establishment or campsites in just november alone domestic tourists made up the majority of guests while foreign visitors counted for just eighteen percent . also for china last year was not as bad as many had predicted even though growth slowed the world bank's update says china's twenty seven thousand g.d.p.
4:37 pm
was still growing by six point eight percent driven by exports and a government supported construction boom for this year and beijing forecasts six and a half percent growth in the world bank agrees business confidence is higher as the government tries to transform the economy in part because of environmental concerns from low price must production to globally competitive quality export giant. weather a little earlier i spoke with catherine young from fidelity international about the impending political and economic changes in china and ask what's in store for the chinese economy this year. this year the economy looks in pretty good shape so if we cost our minds back we really saw the chinese economy bottom out in the first quarter of twenty sixteen so the past eighteen months we've seen a stable but consistent recovery and we expect this to continue just taking a few things for example the property market gets remain fairly buoyant last year
4:38 pm
transactions are likely to slow but property developers unlikely to increase their investment the government likely to cut back on some of their investment related infrastructure but offsetting this is going to be a pick up in corporate investment consumption still booming along quite nicely so really the wild card is exports and that's really dependent on the global to bond situation. has played out the next few markets and what will it mean for twenty eight. well interestingly even though we have seen this broad based recovery in the economy it hasn't been reflected in the stock market the chinese market in us all the terms up around fifty percent to twenty seventeen but it really was a very concentrated rally in terms of the stocks that people were buying very much a few names in a few sectors such as technology such as property i'm thinking of chain names in hong kong to property companies which are up four hundred percent over the one year
4:39 pm
period so this year it's likely will see more of a broad based sort of interest in other sectors of the market not just confined to that say consumer as well as technology yes what will be the interesting sectors this year what should investors be focusing on in twenty eight. when we look at the market itself you can really break up the sectors in the stocks into value names so those names which is cheap and sort of under under looked under out of favor both by investors and then the growth names so names such as cover those property names i may and june does well is that the tech related names so in the vironment like this where growth is been trading at a forty percent premium to the value part of the market it's likely that the value sectors could do well with the banks whether it's insurance whether it's consumer staples but it is really it's again this year like all years when it comes to china very very stock specific on the fundamentals or what's driving company profits
4:40 pm
going forward. from dulles international joining us from thank you very much. cars are turning into computers on wheels these days car makers are increasingly using the consumer electronics show in las vegas as a forum to show off their newfound tech and green credentials they're desperate to promise as low emissions driving technology within a matter of years and not decades and this year the demonstrations begin even before it gets to the convention center. the topi and vision of a driverless future is already taking shape before a visit even reaches the c.e.o.'s. self driving taxis like this b.m.w. awaiting to take them there for now there's still a human driver on hand for emergencies but on this trip he's not needed like. it has three sixty degree sensing sensing lives are sensing and

taiwan is one of the most high tech places on earth companies like h t c account for around a fifth of the country's g.d.p. by producing computers laptops and smartphones for the entire world but with cheaper chinese rivals breathing down their necks companies in taiwan need to keep their technological edge. in showrooms like this one they're focusing more on software. virtual oregon meant to the reality. we're seeing. from many past. experiences if you only do how were the margin walkouts lower and lower after. the the technology gets come out of house so only do we know how or it's not a very good strategy for the long term established companies are turning to startups to tap new markets this firm develops artificial intelligence for

4:55 pm
evidence of an us versus them attitude with mounting hostility in certain parts of the u.k. towards anyone not british particularly people from eastern europe our reporter met a polish family in the seaside town of great yarmouth who have first hand experience of how the mood has changed. these cameras on part of a home security system they were installed to spy on a polish family across the road and appointed right at the children's bedroom. come let us can see how they there is another one the black one next to the white. all those wonder can see it. what's happening here in great yarmouth in eastern england is more than just a feud between neighbors. the ponies family are being targeted simply because they eat citizens says daughter darnell. as the neighbor drives away in her car.
4:56 pm
darnell from poland herself is advising the victimized family she came to britain to work in a bank today she self employed and helps a compatriots when they run into problems the mother of the family doesn't want to show her face for fear of further repercussions. she's afraid of the fact that she's going to get recognized and it's a small town if she goes out and people get to see her then probably she's going to have some advice and. five kids and she just wants to protect them and herself. durrell to darnell started off helping polish citizens with their residency applications after fighting her own way through the british bureaucratic jungle but now she also accompanies them to the police station when they've been threatened simply for being foreigners to video surveillance is yet another case of xenophobia
4:57 pm
. there with she's done it to intimidate or to show she's in control she's installed all these cameras whether they're recording or not what matters is that she's intimidating us on social media and also in person she screams out i can see you all the time. and her family have been living here for four years their british neighbors moved in two years ago the threats began with the bricks at referendum in twenty sixteen and they didn't just come from one maple says this is the daughter i got never had a problem with doctors or at school now the children get called names we all know kids just repeat what they hear their parents say at home i'm afraid to speak polish on the street because we'll be told off. one police officer suggested she could just move away in great yarmouth more than seventy percent of voters were in favor of bricks at the seaside resort to norfolk is a bastion of anti sentiment

5:00 pm
live with the uncertainty that she might be deported one day just because she's an e.u. citizen although her husband james is a pastor and use the authority that comes with his office he says the hours he spent on the phone were tortured. unless you have that piece of paper that tell me it's going to be all right because you're not living through it you're not going through what we've had to go through it not been that the pressure that we've had to go through and so. in great yarmouth agnieszka and her family are also feeling the pressure without door to danielle's assistance they'd be all on their own with the cameras and there's an awful big neighbor who we tried to speak to. but although we heard noises inside the house no one on the door. while britain is heading out of the e.u. most people in turkey still hope their country will join someday though few believe

5:10 pm
the law that they're planning is garbage. it's wrong to ban history. but only for me the most a linear was italy's greatest since the roman empire. this law is really past all hell will break loose that's why i hope it will pass. the twenty seventeen anniversary of muscling is march on rome runs its usual course neo-fascist celebrate their ideology and themselves with zero intervention on the part of the police but this celebration in honor of ill do chair may be the last of its kind if italy's parliament indeed passes the law something the mayor of production would welcome it. was accused lot of emotional case in italy there is next to no critical examination of history or so a lot lives on in secret. for an every once in

5:13 pm
the cell phone network and it's expensive why fires where you can. but once the kids are logged in they often ignore the older people chatting online with friends seems more interesting than an intergenerational conversation. so it's understandable that the project does have its critics. a finical it's nonsense children used to play outdoors pop into the bathtub in the evening and head for school in the morning version of school and then they'd run around outside again play soccer or climb over fences until the woman next door scolded them this time because it felt often the starts and but we do still get noticed in town and because we come every week it's becoming a habit sound and that can really mean something for city of helmont but they can a file molds so far this is still just a test project the organizers will be evaluating the results after six weeks but it

5:20 pm
has met with the e.u. with his counterparts in brussels it's a show of unity for the twenty fifteen agreement aimed at ending iran's pursuit of nuclear weapons and us troops from germany france britain and the e.u. foreign affairs chief credit. their support for the deal one day ahead of key sanctions decision by washington the deal is under threat as u.s. president donald trump will decide on friday whether to reimpose oil sanctions on tehran let's hear exactly what he had to say about the deal. deal is working it is that even include its main goal which means keeping the iranian nuclear program in check and those in the surveillance the i.a.e.a. has confirmed in nine rich noyes to see that iran is fully complying with the commitments made on the agreements as. well let's cross over to brussels now where our correspondent max hoffman is standing by for us much but just heard there from
5:21 pm
federico moga renie what are the other foreign ministers who are attending those discussions today what they've been saying they underline what federer said some finley way of veiled warnings though towards the usa basically warning donald trump not to meddle with the nuclear agreement my god we have the german foreign minister said we want to protect the deal from undermining no matter from which side it might come so that's pretty clear that they not talking about iran here because they also repeated a couple of times here that iran is complying with the deal ok well it is fear the president might still pull the plug on that iranian nuclear deal he has acted unilaterally in the past if he does pull the plug what can the europeans and the iranians do to salvage the agreement. well we understand that his administration told him not to pull the plug but you're right he has not always followed what his
5:22 pm
staff has told him to do or has at least wanted him to do now if they really pull the plug on this is going to be hard to keep iran from complete to comply with the deal because the us were an even more important partner in this deal than the european union although the european union did take the lead in the go sheeting the whole deal now the europeans know that that's why they're trying to offer something to donald trump also they did that during this press conference for example. we do realize that there are issues with iran that are beyond the scope of this nuclear deal for example ballistic missile testing or also the role that iran is playing in the whole region destabilizing for example in syria also in yemen and that's why i said during that press conference we want to start talking about those issues that are beyond the scope of the nuclear agreement as soon as possible to find solutions there and although he warned the u.s. saying don't meddle with this nuclear agreement indirectly at least he also
5:23 pm
conceded to them yes we need to do your right we need to talk about these things ok so there is an effort there united effort to try to encourage the trump ministration to maybe come around now iran has been witnessing a wave of protests in recent days there are a lot of things at play in iran will that be discussed in those talks today in brussels. they did talk about that they all they also announced that they would talk about that not only the role of iran in the whole region but also what is happening the destabilizing factors of the protests in iran at the moment that's something that is worrisome to the european union because iran is a lot closer to the to your of than it is to the united states that's one of the reasons why the french president himself and i would not call that the last week and said it's so important to keep that nuclear deal because it's one of the few means we have to actually influence all the other things that are happening in iran at the moment. in brussels thank you so much now to some other stories

making news around the world today tunisia has been rocked by a third night of violent clashes as unrest over government imposed price hikes intensifies riot police have used tear gas to disperse protesters in the capital tunis and four other cities one man has died scores have been injured and more than three hundred arrested. the death toll from the devastating mudslides and flooding that hit southern california earlier this week has risen to seventeen authorities are continuing to search for over a dozen people who are still missing mudslides destroyed around one hundred homes and damage some three hundred more. armed robbers have burst into paris's ritz hotel and made off with jewels and other luxury goods police arrested three suspects but two more believed to be on the run it's estimated that the thieves made off with some five million dollars worth of jewels. you're watching news still
5:25 pm
to come while garia takes over the emus rotating presidency we asked of the ball gary and minister at the helm what her country's priorities will be. now here in berlin it's the final day of exploratory coalition talks between chancellor i'm going to michael's conservatives and the social democrats the parties have set themselves a deadline of tonight to decide whether they can agree on terms a last ditch effort to head off new elections reports of emerge that they've made progress on issues like taxation and clean energy but still have a host of divisive issues to resolve before striking a deal. lobbying
5:26 pm
groups have been protesting outside the talks every day now among them trade unionists who fear the end of coal mining in germany and those solidly against another health reform today they were joined by supporters of the european union calling for deeper european integration a demand supported by social democrat leader martin schulz. but meals on a such a regular would be fighting government in a century but it must be under the condition of the two strengths nice europe. discussing them is. something we all support in principle fondant of us in terms of our it once was a high view. but there still disagreement over exactly how deep european integration should be other known sticking points between the conservatives and the social democrats are refugee policy and taxation but chancellor merkel remains optimistic the talks will reach a conclusion tonight. as. there are still big hurdles to overcome.
5:27 pm
speaking for my party i can say will be as constructive fest possible in our search for compromises. but of course we are also aware that we want to deliver the right kind of deal for the country. that means it's going to be a tough day. misson put this in the talk the on both sides have agreed to an unused embargo until the end of the talks therefore very little information on potential breakthroughs has emerged so far negotiations are expected to run into the night. well d.w. political correspondent mckayla cook is covering those negotiations for us today i understand that negotiators have saved the most contentious issues the toughest topics to be discussed today what or the main obstacles to an agreement and how tough will they be to overcome. this is quite
5:28 pm
a few tough issues and one of them the whole of europe is really talking about is the stance on migration and we've seen a whole succession of tightening of immigration migration laws here really and there was talk here of actually having an immigration or for highly skilled workers but the big question mark is what happens to asylum seekers that we have the conservative edge of i'm going to michael c.d.u. c.s.u. coalition calling for less money actually less benefits going towards asylum seekers also for an extension of basically what is poor is in letting those with lesser protection bring their relatives here to germany so it's all about how many people would potentially come here to germany and there's the big issue of social justice where the social democrats felt they weren't really able to get that message across that that's what they stand for well you know if they managed to deliver a complete change in germany as health care what it didn't look like when when we heard from delegates before these talks started here really this is the democrats
5:29 pm
are adamant that they will keep fighting for this the big question is what will be the big. issue that this is the democrats can deliver on sway their own supporters their own party to actually go for yet another coalition government ok so obstacles remain but if these exploratory talks are successful today what happens next what's the road map for forming a government for germany. well then we would have the party leaderships the individual ones getting together agreeing to start for more talks then we expect a social democrat party convention on the twenty first of january to once again debate whether to launch a proper coalition talks if martin sorts was to get the green light that whatever comes out of these coalition talks this prospective marriage. grima end of this political marriage of necessity then really would go to grassroots vote and that is
5:30 pm
the big cliffhanger here whether the grassroots who really want favor of continuing this coalition would live up to what sold himself described as a responsibility for his party and also for europe that's the perspective he likes to take on this whether they would actually go for that so we're still weeks or even months away from seeing a new government. is a political correspondent a kid occur after they're covering those negotiations in berlin thank you so much. well by european standards twenty seventeen was a boom year for the german economy that's right seven germany continues to ride its economics a success story with employment on the rise a boy and stock market and bulging state coffers the german economy grew two point two percent in twenty seventeen official data published shows that's the fastest growth in six years in twenty fifteen germany's gross domestic product rose one
5:31 pm
point seven percent a year later the economy grew one point nine percent and as we've heard germany's g.d.p. edged up two point two percent according to the national statistics office in twenty seventeen so how did this happen well products made in germany are popular around the world german exports have been on the rise for years the country has experienced a construction boom too and because saving doesn't bring any returns to to near zero interest rates german consumers have been on a very german shopping spree last year so what does it all mean let's bring in our financial correspondent. who's standing by in frankfurt there than here are looking very good again everybody happy over there. well gary i was just thinking how many times we have talked already and last year in the last year about new all records of the german economy yes the economy is doing very strong two thousand and seventeen was a strong here also two thousand and eighteen is going to be
5:32 pm
a good year most likely people here at the trading floor are happy yesterday we saw this rarely here at the stock market a little bit stopping even close with a drop of one hundred points and now we are up again here in the winning as zone but yes investors are also telling me that there are some factors in two thousand and eighteen that could harm this boost off the german economy there is still this conflict going on with north korea and the united states with two presidents who are considered to be a very unpredictable then breck so that at the end there are rumors could be also very expensive for germany so yeah in general everything is looking good but you also have to think about those factors that could be harming the economy a bit next year and all those figures. all well for germany but they're not really representative for the rest of the eurozone i. know they are actually we also have
5:33 pm
to talk about the surplus production for example that is that germany is having of course this is good for the german economy but at the end it's also hurting other economies here in europe as well and when we talk for example about spain and also about italy those are two big countries here in the euro zone who are having quite some problems with very high unemployment numbers also economies that are not growing as strong as they should and also we have elections coming up next year in italy that many also here call very unpredictable with a great party also a very anti european so yeah it's going to be very interesting what's going to happen in two thousand and eighteen. in frankfurt thank you very much. now the c.e.o.'s in las vegas is one of the balls biggest consumer electronics shows and it comes to an end on friday this year more and more startup companies showed their attempts to break into the booming markets of thomas mobility artificial intelligence and home robotics here's
5:34 pm
a look at the highlights of this year's c.e.o.'s. at the c.e.o.'s it's show time. in the main hall visitors are well out by the wall to wall exhibits. big companies like intel bosh and dime there are showing off their latest tech. this contraption lets you be taken for a high speed ride in a driverless car. there. but i think that's what it is interesting in there is a start up in the other place ok because then you out of the. car at the beginning of the no vacation. here in eureka park there are around eight hundred startups from around the world and insiders are here looking for the next great innovation. i'm here to see the start of which of these companies i
5:35 pm
think really have the necessary. second set of business to go along with like a school attack because it doesn't matter what you're making if you don't have the business skills are the business people needed to be successful then they're going to flop. but which new products could make it to the market there are so many here how about underwear that protects men from cell phone radiation or maybe three d. holograms which are created using every defense. one of the big highlights is a little robot named buddy for those who are curious you can learn a bit of programming thanks to my application by the lab. this robot has been under development in france for the past three years but what is it for so that he has been invented for being a companion robot for a family so he's a md to be a new member of the family and yes four cameras so he can see entreaties he can see
5:36 pm

5:49 pm
by one of the welcomes conflicts thank you tim thanks for having me have you all new president saying that he was inaugurated a new democracy this is a man who thirty seven years has shown no inclination to promote democracy in any form whatsoever wants to suggest that he's going to change and i think. that's a very correct thing to say that he didn't show any inclination to promote democracy what i'm talking about is a man that has been a speaker of parliament was short and even handedness in parliament for the template for the time he was one we're talking here of a man that was elections and was happy talks of the results there from we're talking of a man who's been individually named unsocial and by the first in two thousand and
5:50 pm
two when the european council expressed serious concerns among about human rights violations by the government of zimbabwe among two hundred seventy three other people absolutely collective responsibility yes clearly councils ban was extended in two thousand and four and two thousand and nine they accused him was the malone god what as a member of the government of engaging in activities that seriously undermine democracy respect for human rights and the rule of law seriously undermine democracy that doesn't sound good for the future that's the last best in your balance which would have been a plate of. isn't but when a determined we're talking to two hundred seventy three members of the establishment so you're basically saying that there's a moment the wall of this moment military forces should because the top iraq war then well you're saying the bureaucrats are saying the journalists that we're there we're undermining democracy you know how much does it make it already does it went along with. doing its best to extinguish democracy now here now after you're not
5:51 pm
that's not correct what's what so everybody else got it wrong when you go around the u.s. which also sanctioned them got it wrong everybody got what they want in terms of no you know so misunderstood. that's correct the point i'm making is yes they were a human rights violations that's that's goes without saying and yes when mission of building but yes we've taken responsibility was weak went and put in place a new constitution. the responsibility it's all because nobody's been brought to justice but because of course because of because of course because of course to what we have a new acts which is coming police of national reconciliation with all these matters will be dealt with so we do all really young national about national healing yes i think is also going to deal with the most serious allegations made against the moon which came in late two thousand and two u.n. report to the security council it calls him the key strategist of an elite group
5:52 pm
involved in illicit diamond trading if you read that book and i read the reports and that report is full of conjecture and innuendo eleanore facts was wherever there was simply pulling in the basement if you read in writing about mail for an investigation what investigation into exile evaluation what's allegations that you are the bottom in a pool of recordings of the reports of the networks which he was a senior figure who made money through what they called a variety of criminal activities including theft embezzlement diversion of public funds undervaluation of goods smuggling false invoicing nonpayment of taxes kickbacks to public officials and bright. if you had read that reports as you want to pretend you did you would not have a great sense or king in the returns you see but these vitalistic there is no specific there's no specific allegation what you simply say is that when i was in a certain motel he was the bad man it was when the speaker of parliament was the better man for the government of zimbabwe government of zimbabwe that's what the that's what the report says but there's nothing specific so nothing was abused as
5:53 pm
a gated here not even worth investigating he's above the law anyway so why if the if why but if they could know if they're in the congo or lost some damages or lost money to not go but all allegedly they should it's for them to investigate what's theirs but would investigate and sources but when there was we're talking about here is what. some of us ok then from there saying ok a republican candidate only file a missing it's a sort of they're not i'm saying sort of our responsibility is to use money to investigate things that happened in the cold war when it's not us who lost the money in the congo and then most anybody because the the accusations are not on when and where they are when i'm out in multiple operations we are all mainly governments organise many governments so let them investigate mr miller are you expect zimbabweans never mind the international community simply to gloss over all this instead of seeking a detailed accounting of what took place or don't you care or do you simply don't care or don't just in the rush of the rose petals which are which mr man under way in the in the generals are being thrown i mean are being threatened with their been
5:54 pm
fitted with rose petals right now they are heroes including the generals are talking about in all way involved in all of this that they're talking about so it means muslims are happily with the situation the people that aren't happy if you are really you know we're happy or no one is happy with the heroes when we come on to that little bit but let's talk about the public theater of the last ten days to talk about last year mr mugabe was pushed out in order to bring in democracy now the p.f. had been perfectly happy trashing democracy for thirty five years the thing that brought change was the terrible realisation that was true. he was going to bring his wife into the top job and that would have upset all the vested interests in your country people had counted on. coming in to protect their interests and their secrets couldn't know that now could you know respect not what people cannot risk. somebody wanted thought to be unstable in what appeared and behaved in as terrible
5:55 pm
way to take over the controls of power in zimbabwe it would establish it would have destabilized the whole country would have to savage the region that was the concept that's not the view of didn't mess with a veteran of the liberation struggle he was close to mugabe for fifty years he was quite clear the army intervened he said to save some p.f. not the country but he was you know it is must not turn out just because that is a member of the opposition who also has with vested interests in the voting liberation is a lot are you saying member of the wrong you see he says the armed forces inside which is open arms and yet is not you know he says the armed forces are made up of zanu p.f. members he said not democrats intent on are sharing in a pluralistic system not democrats intent on showing in a pluralistic society so in other words forget about democracy not just as a mother was really just a sense because that is a bitter old man that's what i'm saying there's a formula for democracy let's forget about what a member of opposition would say i guess and what it plans to go in saying that
5:56 pm
that movie hold of even at the swearing in ceremony there were people won't take a look at them but the president of botswana for one in karma he said it pretty clearly i don't see why i should wish him mugabe well if he cared nothing for his own people why should i care for him and then the way the crowds that booed the police commissioner general augusto ensuring there were calls for him to step down you think gave you talk about rose petals for everybody rose petals it's all this i'm sure you didn't you didn't actually check the relationship between the people of zimbabwe and the police commissioner general the generals the rest of the army or the little. of the city secure crowds and the general and do. you worry why do you think the police were mental strength to stand down why are they wanted right now as i'm talking to your starting joint patrol patrols with the army because the police were not trusted by the people they were not trusted by the army they were not trusted by this and they were trusted by only president mugabe why because the
5:57 pm
person that was second in command of the police is this cousin and and the war point was to safeguard that president mr rohani what is disturbing to many people young to be in your country there are plenty of signs that the new president is no different from the old one you take is warning about pluralism and political opposition those who oppose us will park and park he said they will continue to park but the p.f. train will roll on ruling and ruling while they bark again it's all about the party that we're not going to have the clash last that's a misinterpretation of what he actually that's a direct quote of what you say yes but i will tell you any court get taken out of his context and was this minute you think this man is ever going to allow the barking dogs of the opposition to sweep him out of power in order we shall see if they will not achieve if they will you would if they really would it's when you use the backing phrase it's not only about opposition it's even included grace what you
5:58 pm
are simply saying is when i'm focused on something i'm a likely i'm like a train or a locomotive every dog which runs around alongside the tracks can bark and back but the law but it doesn't stop it's called a locomotive is not a country p.f. as far as he's gone appears is that how you live here call for true force transformation within the country thirty years falls it has it's obvious conservation of thirty five years it's trash we made mistakes trash democracy or trash not god we didn't trust democrats but yes we made mistakes and yes we messed up the economy still actually as our sister whatever whatever line you tell you are in. a very friendly guy you're a nice jovial sort of think of the left for whatever line you tell you go for well most of them and gag orders hostage to the brutality of the brutal record of zanu p.f. these military experience as head of central intelligence in the mid 1980's coincided with the most brutal of all mugabe's massacres in the so-called cooler killings in
5:59 pm
which up to twenty thousand from the end of billy tribe were killed or disappeared he's denied any role but actually the state controlled by the way a chronicle reported at the time that he compared to saddam's to bugs cockroaches that would reach such an epidemic that the government needed to bring in the details of things to get rid of the actual thing seems worse yet i hear you now give me a chance to respond to you first thing is we're weighing in a very limited very formative years of our country mistakes were made and the excuses massacre not reality isn't doesn't exist in one of many instances i'm simply saying how many mistakes so that's an admission that many mistakes the number one number two during that period when he was really sort of security unique was coming to power into account for his actions all the time with a very robust parliament at that time and being able to some things is limited crimes this was because well parking offenses for which you know to quell pay
6:00 pm
a fine this was murder on a grand scale there were mistakes call it mistakes is the one biggest understatement in history there's some oh not mistakes it's not it's a slow made mistakes the restylane made respect you know they were mass murderers this was mass will last did you really shit now will diminish or not will last till we lost people we lost is about wins and. for you k. i was for sure it's unfortunate that it happened but in the formative years of alienation if we go back to the history of britain who find that there were pages there were people that died it does not it doesn't it doesn't clear people it doesn't make it any better but the fact still remains in a formative years of elation things will happen which shows us up an hour in the dark should not have happened most of our violence come into your party's d.n.a. and that's already been proved yet again in the last week the very day the new president was sworn in the former finance minister ignatius trumbo was handed over
6:01 pm
to the police by the military who had beaten him up severely and while he was held in custody and the and where to search for money trouble trouble was that the minister talking about salvation in this way as mentioned told by himself in his testimony in chief he never said he wasn't he was president wrong is he wrong you know when he says he was tortured he has them if they did it in the activists roya is wrong because the actual person didn't allege did he tell you they didn't beat him up now that is pretty much a limit you know in the sense that you've invest well you never say that he won't have this very satisfied in or twelve by the court record isn't it when when somebody says the plays are not off in that's what we go by as all why we making it up as a lawyer said it was a very brutal and took only in the way of dealing with a problem if when he says that but i can accept very much so and i tweeted about it myself that this is not the way we want to do things but so fucking issues the country that you've created a few weeks ago the london man are you calling us that don't know about the man
6:02 pm
you're going to let me finish the man who is now president had to flee for his life a couple of weeks ago and he doesn't think that's an unfortunate second party because it's not published but i don't like your why don't i say no but i should have to feel him i don't know i served i don't accept your calling him a complementary study but i would say that it was it was unconventional it was wrong it shouldn't have happened that way but when the tax is in and your rights before you is not sit in a club isn't it time you came out with it what's been going on in your country all these years apart from just. trying to get out of it by calling it a few mistakes and i'm missing that people deserve something better than zone p.f. helping people really do it not people deserve what they want for exactly that's what that's what democracy about it's if the partisans on appeal then they deserve an opinion isn't it i don't want to prescribe leaders was an awful prison for the people's republic there are many choices they'll make a choice in july also they'll make a choice again will they choose not to be a that's what they deserve i put it to joyce maturer who was mugabe's vice
6:03 pm
president for ten years yeah yeah that under mugabe zimbabwe became a byword for corruption murder trial cities and torture she didn't argue with that she didn't know she says a fact what's love again when you quote opposition will as good will rule which is one of his issues with him for ten years yeah but then vice president but by then but then if you haven't said sorry for any of these mergers corruption atrocity you know wants to watch corruption and it's a problem they go i've made and admission made us not to the scale you want to say things happened as i told you mention into which and then when the nation into which shouldn't have happened there you go you love those understatements things happened no these were murders and massacres that carried out this was brutal brutal violence and you know it was missing tyson was things happen when i'm saying
6:04 pm
i think you are playing it down well they want you know where you're assuming they were told this way i mean that there were dissidents one too there were torrence were actually kidnapped and killed there were there were some what age of infrastructure there were elections violence especially around the point thousand and eight am i explain what i mean by things happened so the response to the response to that was disproportionately yes and no in that that's one sentence up and because things happen on both sides and that's the phrase i. is it would not raise temperatures in ethnic intentions in public if you do the exactly i think what you're trying to do in january on the voice of america you were asked why your policy hadn't been more successful in improving lives for the majority of zimbabwe three and a half decades. and you replied it's a matter of time it's not going to happen overnight of course you will end it and then you trying to tell me if nobody seven years and you say it's
6:05 pm
a matter of time say i'm not going to say i want another one i want people spitting this thirty seven years mundra they've been held they've been pretend that there's not nothing good happened in zimbabwe when when who electrification went around when people when they were all educated people when schools were built when the provincial was because of referrals because were built when the university will instead of the university now we've got sixteen things positive things happened in zimbabwe you know if you look you know i was a bit nobody denies you ok so you know it's your education you know that's not a choice them and so it's not a wasted thirty seven years you see but as for the economy yeah the man i want you certainly now i go yes madame i'm sorry but you're certainly set records but they weren't the records you wanted under your policies grant that's mismanagement inflation peaked around three thousand and eight two hundred thirty one million percent congratulations thank you very much to all that record but why because you the west undermined i call it's the worse off for well not you know not just but
6:06 pm
you know your staggering in zero eight incompetent and we're going up to this well i give you that but let's not let's not dismiss there on the substance rate because the whole point was to bring down those robin economy and smugglers mob and government and it how it works to some extent but the only thing that didn't happen is the governors of the dump. legislation now is running at walden fourteen percent industrial output is less than ten percent of g.d.p. compared to twenty five percent and ninety nine ten nobody's under it in the world to work before the new president it's a lot of work fast which he has to embark on right now that's why you say they have to hit the ground running and the first talk of an official to make this admission when i was vice president he went to china and he made admission of them but was twenty years behind in development and when somebody of that stature and that level makes that admission it's a very important mission and because of that it's not underwriting the task before
6:07 pm
him there are plenty of signs that your public wants justice and these last few days plenty of zimbabweans have been speaking out because they feel they're able to get the jewelry they happen to know more are for small business around harare he reacted pretty badly to the news that we're gabi and his family have already secured immunity from prosecution he said why do people think that once a crook is out it's now ok for them to keep their empire well you've both overthrowing them if we're not going to reclaim money and assets because i am bad so made working one of the wealthy suburbs he said let them live peacefully in zimbabwe but they must find out how much they have if it's a lot maybe take half forward miles we told her one of your party officials mugabe should be prosecuted and sent to jail for a long time he said if i meet him one day i'll give him a blow in the street he squandered my life really good you really think people are going to accept this if you think the issue you know you're taking up to the people but i can tell you this that our construction doesn't grant immunity incumbents so
6:08 pm
president mugabe was immune to prosecution when he was an officer now in the new government will process this whole thing or. immunity or something else because. it's only binding in this fight is the only would well and the gentleman the gentleman list ness is a concept he's already been told that he can give you some sense he. he and his family and get at least ten million george mugabe's principal aide told the times newspaper last week that the ex-president had been assured his assets were secured and which assets of us ok they own the largest land owners in the country they own a deadly two private schools they control the running of an orphanage they only twenty five bedroom house in harare known as the blue roof along with the second property in the same city and that's three story home in the country yet they have a two point four million house in the sentence suburb of johannesburg with an apartment in hong kong and a room and also to have property owned in malaysia and singapore not bad actually
6:09 pm
uses not a lot of nobility i don't think it's all that bad but and no consultation on this shabby little deal that allows him not actually to do when they're offering no be beyond the law what precedent that says do you want to see ocracy did did did you really want in a friend on that or this thing was negotiated and under it's about been celebrating canada didn't mind what it was they wanted one of their lives i said you don't have a democracy go talk of new democracy will think well you know what is beyond us all do you think democracy is a blood test missenden in the end of indebtedness as well as a little push and it's not if i took your research unless we're talking about something else but not you're not the type of democracy where you would think well let's go back and read and rock to temperatures and oh yes i have any justice on what you know what your definition of justice to what a differential justice brought to the defense minister mccartney reza finance minister a few minutes ago what about the man who run the show while they met the man who ran the show unfortunately or fortunately for you but zimbabwe did move on and we
6:10 pm
ended things were the best solution maybe a little also comes of the team we in with any starting over the any see if you have a referendum if you have a referendum on this i would tell you ninety percent of zimbabweans would endorse this deal the opposition m.d.c. does and those who do so since concern constitutional you know yes well they have quite a few things about horses around the culture if they can challenge it isn't it that's the whole essence of having a constitutional court that would line judges private judges who can we can overturn it if it's unconstitutional let's hope that's the whole point but the whole point of having institutions are independent and what you decide is independent. grace mugabi she gets seventy five thousand dollars a year for life when we haven't done it yet you think that's fair everything you think you can have a pension is wrong think she paid tax on that and you know exactly what you're doing to your do you have a problem with people getting pension i didn't set a book on that i wasn't dollars in the country our point and seeing and seeing him carry him telling him no employment problems you are and really isn't
6:11 pm
a chocolate situation because our constitution say's those things should happen when when the president or his or her vice president leaves office if they serve the team it is one team clearly untrue showings of the shoddy little deals how do you have a diversion from a question you know i don't know i'm going to simplify cause you see the whole it and i and that's what the off does that mean that the president took to uphold the constitution so i'm not sure i'm ashamed of opposition is one of the best in the world and will write a very highly. if the elections take place next year should you to do so your party can hardly campaign on its record carrying thirty seven years of corruption thirty seven years of blood on its hands and now this deal this immunity deal presumably to buy it was to regard the silence because he has capabilities that when you take a lot of people what are you going to be on what a very interesting relation to me one vote for you to me when i let you have one a very interesting feel to look at what you're fluted i've told you that we have
6:12 pm
what's more than sixty percent outreach and coverage in it to sit up all the everything else that we have done i've told you about our literacy rate i'll talk about those bittles were built we've got a lot to campaign for i would have told we were resettled people with lots and lots of carbon we have not human rights no human rights oh yeah we rely doesn't matter we have a lot not yet or maybe not we have we have a lot to improve on the twenty we have a lot to improve and this is a bill that. the m.d.c. has got violence to you know the vice president in the m.d.c. was charged if you if you will on both sides when she was in the m.d.c. almost as some ago when she was in the m.d.c. she was bashed again by events it's unfortunate what a culture very well as around us would you want to do you advocate and women did this violence during this period give us give give us some credit for the fact that for the fourteenth when the army doesn't up to this point where we didn't have incidents of violence this is going over the only time that men want to go thirty seven years of credit thanks very much for being uncovered so thank you for having

e.u.'s foreign policy chief reaffirmed their support for the iran nuclear deal which u.s. presidents donald trump has threatened to leave the deal is working it is they're leaving on its main goal which main street things the iranian nuclear program in check and we will see the surveillance any played an important role in crafting the landmark nuclear court in the summer of two thousand and fifteen she has lobbied hard to convince washington to keep the nuclear issue separate from other contentious issues with tehran such as its ballistic missile program what the nuclear deal could however facilitate is talking about these issues something all ministers emphasized in brussels today should refer to or committed you know of course we must also address the situation in iran we are all very concerned regarding the rights of those demonstrating in the streets we are convinced that people have a fundamental right to demonstrate on top of that we also need to talk about iran's
6:21 pm
actions in the wider regional individual of it and. that iran had committed to a dialogue over its role in war torn yemen and syria but whether the nuclear deal and the diplomatic channels that come with it remain intact now depends on the u.s. president's donald trump is expected to decide on friday whether to reimpose sanctions against tehran. max hoffman is covering the story for us in brussels max if president trump does re impose sanctions on iran can the europeans and the iranians do anything to salvage the nuclear agreement. the europeans said that they would stick with the agreement no matter what but if you look at the power and the power play that's going on of course the united states side from iran are the most important partner and there would be a whole lot less incentive for the iranians to stick with that deal of course the europeans could say this is this is good for business this deal as long as we can
6:22 pm
do business with you it's in your interest to keep the deal but the fact of the matter is that if the trump administration really imposes sanctions on those companies that do business with iran that would also affect european countries and that would slow down business again so there really isn't a win win situation here where only europe and iran keep this deal up so there's the nuclear agreement that's being discussed there in brussels today but there's more at play in iran right now german foreign minister is it my goblin mentioned it in this sound bite we had in our piece there he talked about the protests in iran and you said they would be addressed what more can you tell us about that. i think what's really important to underline here is that the european union is not a huge fan of how iran conducts policies in the region as you can arguably is the german foreign minister or in their own country they're highly critical of that but that doesn't mean they want to scream scrap the nuclear agreement actually they want to keep the nuclear agreement because to them it's
6:23 pm
a way to influence all the other things they don't like all the issues they have with iran for example the protests for example its actions in the wider region apart from that leverage for the european union as a soft power when we talk about wars in yemen in syria is very limited so this is the main tool for europe to try to influence things there they talked about it but if the. deal is no longer in place then as i said options for the e.u. very limited just a final question max about that nuclear deal and the u.s. position on it what is the opinion of those meeting there in brussels today is it expected that the u.s. will stay on board with the nuclear agreement with iran or pull the plug hard to predict apparently a majority of the u.s. and ministration is in favor to keeping the deal for now to put a waiver on the oil sanctions this is what it's about in detail on friday but it appears that the u.s.
6:24 pm
president is uncomfortable with that we're not entirely sure if that's true or not and all the time with that you know that donald trump is someone who changes his mind pretty quickly so hard to say ok. there for us in brussels thank you so much. well here in berlin is the final day of exploratory coalition talks between chancellor angela merkel's conservatives and the social democrats almost four months after voters went to the polls the parties have set themselves a deadline of tonight to decide whether they can agree on terms medical's conservative bloc is sitting down for its fifth day of discussions with the center left s.p. d. the two sides are said to have made progress on issues like taxation in clean energy but have left the more sensitive policy disagreements until today if successful the c.d.u. will enter into a formal coalition negotiations with yes beneath led by martin scholtz not germany could face fresh elections and an uncertain future for chancellor merkel. d.w. political correspondent mckayla cook is covering those negotiations for us today i
6:25 pm
understand that negotiators have saved the most contentious issues the toughest topics to be discussed today what or the main obstacles to an agreement and how tough will they be to overcome. this is quite a few tough issues and one of them the whole of europe is really talking about is the stance on migration and we've seen a whole succession of tightening of immigration migration laws here really and there was talk here of actually having an immigration or for highly skilled workers but the big question mark is what happens to asylum seekers that we have the conservative edge of going to michael c.d.u. c.s.u. coalition calling for less money actually less benefits going towards asylum seekers also for an extension of basically what is a poor is in letting those with lesser protection bring their relatives here to germany so it's all about how many people would potentially come here to germany
6:26 pm
and there's the big issue of social justice where the social democrats felt they weren't really able to get that message across that that's what they stand for well you know if they managed to deliver a complete change in germany as health care would it didn't look like one when we heard from delegates before these talks started here really this is the democrats are adamant that they will keep fighting for this the big question is what will be the big. issue that this is the democrats can deliver on sway their own supporters their own party to actually go for yet another coalition government ok so obstacles remain but if these exploratory talks are successful today what happens next what's the roadmap for forming a government for germany. well then we would have the party leadership the individual ones getting together agreeing to start formal talks then we expect a social democrat party convention on the twenty first of january to once again
6:27 pm
debate whether to launch a proper coalition talks if martin sorts was to get the green light that whatever comes out of these coalition talks this prospective marriage is. grima end of this political marriage of necessity then really would go to a grass roots vote and that is the big cliffhanger here whether the grassroots who really want favor of continuing this coalition it would live up to what sold himself described as a responsibility for his party and also for europe that's the perspective he likes to take on this whether they would actually go for that so we're still weeks or even months away from seeing a new government. is a political correspondent jim acosta there covering those negotiations in berlin thank you so much tunisia has been rocked by a third night of violent clashes as unrest over government imposed price hikes intensifies riot police have used tear gas to disperse protesters in the capital

6:50 pm
why do you need village lies tucked away amid the snowy woods one hundred fifty kilometers north of finland's arctic circle it was built entirely from snow and ice the snow village covers some twenty thousand square meters ice artist romney taco is one of its creators. for me experienced that i'm living my dream here in la i swore i would be by the nature and i can verify with the material which is even bringing me closer to the nature and it feels so good to be able to share this experience with the guests who obviously being in the snow or it's. this year's theme is game of thrones artists have carved characters and scenes from the hit t.v. series out of ice visitors can even spend a night here. guests staying in one of the ten igloo suites can sleep beside

6:52 pm
a month they use some twenty million kilos of snow and three hundred fifty thousand kilos of ice. lighting is very important part of the art itself so one part is making that finding the art of from the snow but then it's all of the experience is that if properly really comes alive. romney offers ice sculpture workshops with his support stephen moore and his wife transform a block of ice into any intricate. plus it helps i knew it would be more difficult i didn't think it would be possible to actually comp and leave out of a block of ice in just one hour the tile. ice is very brittle little mistakes can be fixed using body heat bits can be reattached that are broken off. as and when the tough to use either works in an entirely new light because now we
6:53 pm
know much more about this because we've used the tools held them in our own hands and tried it out see the one a few taps of that really gives you a different perspective on. the tough money matters and then can stack it and all that is out of. this dragon was carved from twelve tons of ice. in the village attracts visitors from around the globe at the bar they can order drinks in the rocks as the glasses are made of ice. guests can even marry here many couples tie the knot in the ice chapel. and there's an igloo restaurant. the diameter from inside is sixteen me there's having two hundred square metres of floor area and if you feel cold then this is one place to make you feel much more warmer because everybody in. most of pain you have fooled into stomach you start to feel much more warmer getting here is

7:05 pm
a lots of little tricks and tips that are very effective and. cutting corners everyone knows them it's not easy to make just start this tiny shows how anyone can manage it in three steps. rule number one. also get rid of things everything you no longer need and no longer use must go say goodbye really off to the trash with them. it's not so simple because every little box a basket holds its own chaos that's the long time in go straight in the trash. the challenge is to distinguish what can be tossed and watch it be held onto the rule of thumb is to keep only what you really need. here and now we'll just put everything you really need right now on to the desk. the necessary ballast is gone time for rule number two. in the past i made
7:06 pm
a point of putting things back in the place it's logical things you need every day should be ready to hand so you can find them right away and know where they go. you should have a set place for everything having a good overview is especially important at your desk. plan a rule of thumb for your workplace never have more than three ongoing projects on your desk so you don't lose focus. affects a person's feeling of well being putting optical calm into your hair it's easier to relax when the tables tidy and things are lying about on the floor and that makes your whole life easier. the life of the company. the work room even feels different. the sticks are better drive seems bigger and more open. but i just leave it at that time for rule number three because order requires

something more. it's a constant process so you always have to keep on the ball to simplify the problem you can introduce one thing in one thing out rule out play each item i bring into the house i have to decide beforehand watch i'll get rid of stuff you know how. tied in it's requires planning cutting things throwing them out and organizing it sounds banal and simple but many people can't do it on their own. it out he said to me so i don't think i would have parted with as many things and it would have been much more anger. so this way was ok and i didn't have to think so much just a way with that kind of support was quite helpful. and everything but it's easier to live and work in an orderly home.

this is the w. news coming to life for. european union presents a united front in working with. foreign minister meets e.u. leaders in an attempt to bolster the twenty fifty nuclear deal says it will no longer cooperate with the terms of the agreement if washington re imposes oil sanctions. also coming up. she can strike a deal with the social democrats and have a new election that says germany's main parties go into
7:19 pm
a final day of exploratory coalition. while in protests spread across tunisia. spills into the streets one person has died and more than three hundred people have been arrested as authorities crackdown on demonstrators. plus raped murdered and left. in pakistan to protest against the brutal killing of an eight year old girl they want to know why the police were so slow to respond. hello i'm terry martin thanks for joining us. iran's foreign minister mohammad has met with his counterparts in brussels it's a show of unity for the twenty fifteen iran nuclear agreement the deal is under threat as u.s. president will decide on friday whether to reimpose sanctions on tehran.
7:20 pm
for the iranian delegation brussels was of reassurance couldn't come at a better time the foreign ministers of britain germany and france as well as the e.u.'s foreign policy chief reaffirmed their support for the iran nuclear deal which u.s. presidents donald trump has threatened to lead to the deal it's working it is they're leaving on its main goal which remains keeping the iranian nuclear program in check and the survey against any played an important role in crafting the landmark nuclear accord in the summer of two thousand and fifteen she has lobbied hard to convince washington to keep the nuclear issue separate from other contentious issues with tehran such as its ballistic missile program what the nuclear deal could however facilitate is talking about these issues something all ministers emphasized in brussels today should refer to or within you know of course
7:21 pm
we must also address the situation in iran we are all very concerned regarding the rights of those demonstrating in the streets we are convinced that people have a fundamental right to demonstrate on top of that we also need to talk about iran's actions in the wider regional individual of it and. that iran had committed to a dialogue over its role in war torn yemen and syria but whether the nuclear deal and the diplomatic channels that come with it remain intact now depends on the u.s. president's donald trump is expected to decide on friday whether to reimpose sanctions against tehran. max hoffman is covering the story for us in brussels max if president trial does free impose sanctions on iran can the europeans and the iranians do anything to salvage the nuclear agreement. the europeans said that they would stick with the agreement no matter what but if you look at the power and the power play that's going on of course the united states
7:22 pm
side from iran are the most important partner and there would be a whole lot less incentive for the iranians to stick with that deal of course the europeans could say this is this is good for business this deal as long as we can do business with you it's in your interest to keep the deal but the fact of the matter is that if the trump administration imposes sanctions on those companies that do business with iran that would also affect european countries and that would slow down business again so there really isn't a win win situation here where only europe and iran keep this deal up so there's the nuclear agreement that's being discussed there in brussels today but there's more at play in iran right now german foreign minister is it my goblin mentioned it in the sound bite we had in our piece there he talked about the protests in iran he said they would be addressed what more can you tell us about that. i think what's really important to underline here is that the european union is not
7:23 pm
a huge fan of how iran conducts policies in the region the s.c.r. gobby is said the german foreign minister or in their own country they're highly critical of that but that doesn't mean they want to scream scrap the nuclear agreement actually they want to keep the nuclear agreement because to them it's a way to influence all the other things they don't like all the issues they have with iran for example the protests for example its actions in the wider region apart from that leverage for the european union as a soft power when we talk about wars in yemen in syria is very limited so this is the main tool for europe to try to influence things there they talked about it but if the nuclear deal is no longer in place then as i said options for the e.u. very limited just a final question max about that nuclear deal and the u.s. position on it what is the opinion of those meeting there in brussels today is it expected that the u.s. will stay on board with the nuclear agreement with iran or pull the plug hard to
7:24 pm
predict apparently a majority of the u.s. and the ministration is in favor to keeping the deal for now to put a waiver on the oil sanctions this is what it's about in detail on friday but it appears that the u.s. president is uncomfortable with that we're not entirely sure if that's true or not and all the time with that you know that donald trump is someone who changes his mind pretty quickly so hard to say ok he's not off their force in brussels thank you so much. took a quick look at a couple other stories making headlines today british prime minister teresa mayes office says the country will not hold a second referendum on this after all and it brings its national for raj said a second referendum might be a good idea many politicians have called for a second vote saying the consequences of the decision were not clear at the time ross says a second hole would end the debate. and armed robbers who burst into the ritz hotel
7:25 pm
in paris and made off with jewels and other luxury goods police arrested three suspects but two more are believed to still be at large it's estimated that the thieves made off with over four million euros worth of jewels. and myanmar's military says its soldiers murdered ten captured rohingya muslims last september during its operation in the western state of rakhine the army insisted the men were terrorists in what amounted to a rare admission of wrongdoing by myanmar rights groups say though that the killings are just the tip of the iceberg. well as the final day of exploratory talks between chancellor merkel's conservatives and the central left s.p.d. the parties have set themselves a deadline of tonight to decide whether they have enough common ground to enter a former to enter formal coalition talks and maybe form a government chancellor merkel said many hurdles remain and that it will be
7:26 pm
a tough day. lobbying groups have been protesting outside the talks every day now among them trade unionists who fear the end of coal mining in germany and that was solidly against another health reform today they were joined by supporters of the european union calling for deeper european integration. a demand supported by social democrat leader martin schultz. but meals on are not such a review will be fighting and government authority that it must be under the condition that its strength nice europe will be discussing the us and it's something we also in principle. it wants of the hybrid. but there still disagreement over exactly how deep european integration should be other known sticking points between the conservatives and the social democrats are refugee policy and taxation but chancellor merkel remains optimistic the talks will reach a conclusion tonight as we know there are still big hurdles to overcome.
7:27 pm
speaking for my party i can say will be as constructive s possible in our search for compromises. but of course we are also aware that we want to deliver the right kind of deal for the country. that means it's going to be a tough day. misson with this. both sides have agreed to an unused embargo until the end of the talks therefore very little information on potential breakthroughs has emerged so far negotiations are expected to run into the night. charlotte is covering the negotiations taking place in berlin today show of sterling negotiators say the most contentious issues for the last in their discussing those tough issues today what are the main obstacles and help tough will they be to overcome. well good news
7:28 pm
first there are things where these two negotiators see eye to eye for example increasing the police force or a new immigration law for skilled workers that are coming into germany from beyond europe so there are many issues where they see eye to eye but of course obstacles and hurdles remain as we've just heard from the chancellor itself and those are for example the issue of migration i think the social democrats might be willing to sacrifice a bit on that especially on the issue of family reunifications for refugees from civil war to on areas another issue that is a hurdle at the moment is the issue of finances there forty five billion euros that can be used for projects so who gets what that is going to be discussed this afternoon and another issue is the issue of europe furthering integration that is what both parties want and what they've stated all along but the question is how this especially financial integration will look like so hurdles left but everybody here remains in general optimistic that those talks will come to
7:29 pm
a conclusion at some point tonight or in the early morning hours maybe into friday ok surely if these exploratory talks are successful what happens next what's the roadmap for forming a government. so that's really where the tricky part starts martin schulz a leader of the social democrats will head out and tour germany campaign and sell this idea so the result of these exploratory talks to the social democratic base and the reasoning behind us is they have a party conference in about a week's time where the social democrats will have to vote on the results and if the delegates at that conference say no then there is no continuation of the grand coalition so it can still fail and even after that let's say the party conference is successful then the coalition talks will start the official ones between the two parties between the christian and social democrats and after that the social
7:30 pm
democrats will again have their party base vote on it so it is a long road a long road ahead until germany will finally see a government again it might be weeks or maybe a month until we see a new government here your political correspondent charlotte potts thank you so much. and while we're waiting for the outcome of those exploratory coalition talks in berlin i'm joined by a very special guest social democrat thomas autumn on until recently he was head of the s.p.d. parliamentary group and now he's vice president of the german parliament a buddhist todd thanks for being here with us on the w. no answer. mr obama do you think that the so-called grand coalition between chancellor macros conservatives and your social democrats is still the right government for germany. well definitely we need a strong government that can act especially because in the in the european level we
7:31 pm
have a complicated decisions and reforms. we want to support him on a worm a call to stabilize the european union especially the euro zone so we do need a government that is able to make decisions that are. sustained by a stable majority in the parliament while germany definitely does need a government. currently there's no term limit for the position of german chancellor you've proposed a limit of two terms chancellor merkel has just finished a third term do you think it's time for her to step down well i think she's been in office now for twelve years and we have seen. similar situations with chancellor. chancellor kohl the longer they were in office the most the more difficult it became for the country and i believe it's
7:32 pm
a very demanding job it's the most difficult jump in germany to be chancellor and i think eight to ten years is enough if you want to be inspiring if you want to be able to pick up what people think new ideas and have enough power to lead the governor. the majority in the parliament. it takes a lot and i think eight to ten years is enough and maybe macko should be lucky to find the right moment within the next period within this period. of palm and to step down changing term limits is a pretty big deal just a quick yes or no question do you think that during the next parliamentary session there will be a consensus to to impose term limits to impose what term limits no that i don't think so that's not coming in the next legislative i don't think so but it is
7:33 pm
a good idea and the christian democrats should think about right now you've also suggested that germany should take an example from the u.k. and introduce what they call their minister's question time or prime minister's questions it's like q. and a session in this case it would be with the chancellor and members of the parliament why well during the grand coalition when we had an eighty percent majority of the problem and it was not really playing a very significant row it was still the place for the important decisions but we had no inspiring debate the coalition the opposition of greens and the left party was weak and so i believe that. visited the westminster prime minister's question time a couple of years ago and i found it very interesting i think that's the way to revitalize parliament terry debates and that is necessary to reestablish
7:34 pm
the trust of people in our parliamentary procedures and institutions ok if there is another grand coalition that would automatically make the far right party the strongest party the largest party in the german going to stock in the parliament that will give the f.t. . huge visibility and influence in various committees how would you deal with the a.f.p. and extremist views in general in your role as vice president of the bonus time that's a high price that we have to pay in a grand coalition in a new. revitalize grand coalition that the right wing party if he becomes the majority of becomes opposition leader. well how do we deal with that i must say that it is the first time after world war two after the nazi dictatorship that we have
7:35 pm
a party in the bundestag in that i stuck where which has members who actively propagate. racist and nationalist socialist ideology we didn't have that before how do we deal with it well first of all this party was elected by the voters so they have the same rights they should be treated equally like anybody else they should not given any special deal i believe that one of their approach to populist policy is to describe themselves as victims as victims of the establishment the victims of the political system and we should not give them that opportunity of self perception as to implement thank you so much thomas up a man he's vice president of the german parliament thank you for being with us today indeed of units thank you to. now moving on to tunisia which has been
7:36 pm
rocked by a third night of violent clashes as unrest over government impose price hikes intensifies riot police have used tear gas to disperse protesters in the capital tunis and four other cities one man has died scores have been injured and more than three hundred arrested the prime minister had warned rioters to expect a heavy security presence on the streets. not even threats of a clampdown could keep them away hundreds of disaffected tunisians clashed with riot police and another long night of violent unrest with both sides trading tear gas and drops. some coming off wash for where. i was trying to talk to one of the policemen and suddenly one of them help me with his baton. that's been. seven years ago to near zero was the cradle of the
7:37 pm
arab spring after a revolt against rising costs that revolution may now be history but its spirit and its cause lives on. for many in the rural heartland economic frustrations confusion go hand in hand. there was no doubt. this is how we had to endure these clashes after a day of work even our bus was attacked with tear gas. we need to find a solution for our youth politicians raised our living costs why don't they take a pay cut we have to suffer taking two buses to the factory town just a hundred euros. earlier this week one protester paid with his life and dozens more have been injured as economic hardship leaves its mark on china's. well joining us now for more on this story is abraham from our arabic desk hi.
7:38 pm
thanks for coming in well we've seen three nights of violence now across tunisia understand that more than three hundred people have been arrested for so-called submersed subversive acts what more can you tell us about this it is not unlikely to see demonstration tunisia this time of the year it is the anniversary of the revolution that broke out seven years ago in what became known as the arab spring what i knew all this time these protests have taken the economic problem as their target and these are not political issues as it were in twenty eleven but economic problems the government has introduced a new budget in two thousand and twenty eighteen that has increased the value added tax as well as social contributions and there's a great deal of frustration about that. it remains to be seen where this will how this will develop in the next coming days but over ten cities have been targeted with these protests and. one of them is where.
7:39 pm
the arabs the so-called arab spring broke out almost almost seven thousand years ago so so you say there is a tradition for this protest being held this time of year break these are different because they are focusing on the economic part of your measures how do you see this playing out what kind of sorties do to diffuse this well so far the response from both parties has actually been quite lukewarm we've we've heard the prime minister on tuesday give out a statement saying that citizens have the right to protest this is a democratic country however he's very disappointed in seeing it of these demonstrations have. have escalated into violence most mostly mostly at night yesterday however things escalated a little bit more in a visit to one of the affected areas he pointed fingers he pointed his finger to the national front which is a coalition of eleven liberalist sorry. leftist parties into just saying that they may have a connection with these acts of vandalism so
7:40 pm
a direct accusation so there might be more to the story than meets the eye who knows we'll see. you know many people look to tunisia remember the arab spring and they know that you know we know it started there but tunisia has come through the arab spring much better than many of its neighbors currently are no wondering could that all be undone is could democracy instability be under threat now in tunisia. well one should not forget that since twenty eleven tunisia has had nine governments nine changes of governments in seven years is a lot especially for young people and none of these nine governments have been able to tackle the economic problem effectively the i.m.f. has had given tunisia or. one in twenty fifteen i believe two point two point five i think to two point nine billion dollars and in twenty seventeen and twenty in december if twenty seven thousand has directly told tunisian government then it needs to get it its act together it needs to take measures to decrease its deficit
7:41 pm
so yes many changes however the challenges the challenges still remain for the government of tunisia and pretty young people thank you so much for talking with us for him from arabic to us and. here in europe germany continues to write its own economic success story but it sure does terry booming employment of buoyant stock market and bold ging state coffers you data shows the german economy is growing at its fastest rate in six years and twenty fifteen germany's gross domestic product rose one point seven percent a year later growth hit one point nine and now it's on a roll logging two point two percent last year the label made in germany is popular around the world exports have been on the rise for years now has also been a construction boom here and is saving doesn't bring the returns due to near zero interest rates german consumers have been on a very on german shopping spree and i asked our financial correspondent daniel
7:42 pm
colby if he's also been out shopping. well i actually i'm afraid not because i just was buying too much before christmas so i'm really running out of here at the moment i guess but. you know there's really a flip side of this story ben because of course this is really making the german economy happy companies here in germany make very good money but also because of exports but that's exactly the problem and that's why many european countries today are actually having cory's some headache with this latest news coming from germany because germany really has this trade surplus which means they are producing and exploiting on a very high level other countries and i saw for example about spain let's talk for example about italy they would also like to have something from this big export cake but they're simply not getting it and that's why we're seeing other economies
7:43 pm
here in europe not as strong as germany does other any other factors that are keeping him best is on the edge where you were when it comes to the outlook for twenty eight. well two thousand and eighteen most likely is going to be a strong year about senior economists are also telling you that there are some sectors there are a little bit worried about first still this going crisis between the united states and north korea two presidents a very unpredictable then brics that also many feel that directed at the end could also become rather expensive for germany and also it till the very big country here in europe with election this year with a not really certain outlook with lots of political parties also in italy who are not really pro european so yeah those could be a factors in two thousand and eighteen that could be harming a little bit the economy as well ok so there is stuff to look out for if you're in
7:44 pm

hurdles to overcome. the two sides must settle a host of divisive issues today to move ahead with a formal coalition. at least two protesters have died in pakistan in clashes with police following the rape and murder of a young girl she's the twelfth miner to be sexually assaulted then killed in the city over the past year demonstrators have accused police of being slow to act leaving the killer to remain at large. boils over at the death of another little girl and investigators failure to find who killed her in a crowd marches through the city of cars who are targeting the local police station officers opened fire chaos ensues. protesters attempt to carry away the injured the girl's family reacts with outrage they want justice for their daughter but they say the police have responded to protests over her death by using force.
7:50 pm
the log of i have just learned that police fired at people and that two people are now dead i'm going to find out what happened we're going to try not to bury our child until the issue has been resolved properly. and sorry it was just seven years old her community is grieving for a girl who vanished on her way to a karate class this is the last image of her alive last week an unknown man led her away holding her hand. police discovered her body on this trash heap on tuesday is believed to have been raped several times and then strangled to death her family wants a real investigation. demanding that the murderer be arrested alive to be not been a good thing the police shouldn't just try to lift the burden from themselves by
7:51 pm
killing some innocent person and then saying now you have justice. the law or high court chief justice has ordered the police to take swift action in the case but with residents furious at what they see as a failure to properly investigate previous abductions there could well be more protests to come. well as murder continues to send shock waves through pakistan demands for justice are also dominating social media frederica budget always keeping a close eye on developments there for us and joins us now frederica sort of story has clearly shaken pakistan and what are people there saying about well terry it was today was another day of protest not only in cassar where murder happened but also in other parts of pakistan across large cities such as karachi or punjab and this is really shocked the country and there's been a massive outpour of support that we're seeing also
7:52 pm
a number of prominent people from pakistan they've been speaking out such as activists and nobel peace prize laureates. she wrote i'm heartbroken to hear about zainab this has to stop pakistani politicians also speaking out such as imran khan he says to condemn noble and horrific rape and murder of little zainab exposes once again how vulnerable children are in our society we have a cricket player mohammed amir he writes i'm heartbroken gutted and disgusted so strong condemnation from all sides of pakistan now i'm told the son of his just the latest victim in a string of child murders her death appears to have exposed a rift in pakistani society about how to address the underlying problem yes indeed and on the one hand we are seeing once again people who are saying i for an eye tooth for a tourist they want revenge they we have been seeing pictures like this is circulating
7:53 pm
and this woman for example writes publicly hang the predator who brutally murdered and raped zainab it's the only way on t.v. don't make an example out of these demons this will never end another other people across pakistani society have also be sharing a similar messages such as actors my hero can she says find him do what it take. to find him and make an example out of him forgot sake in sharp contrast with this approach however we're also seeing a more moderate voice of people saying that if we really want to if we really want to change things we need to change the culture and we need to especially educate people and especially the youth about the issue so for example a pakistani writer be national she tweeted the following saying you start by talking to young children about the private parts of their body and that nobody is allowed to touch them no matter whether they are a friend or a relative so there's
7:54 pm
a pretty strong clash there between a revenge approach if you want and people calling for a culture revolution on the less together even if they're divergent arguments they make for a strong demand for action thank you so much frederica budget from our social media test. let's talk to journalist hashimoto. what do we know about the protests it seems there's a political dimension to this conflict tell us more about the. yes definitely there is definitely an element of the political to all of this that's happening because who right now and in the protests across the country maliki are seen the father of the child send up who was raped is a supporter of the cleric called the three who leads the pack republican party and he has a history of organizing massive anti-government demonstrations of course called the famously wrote the parts of the capital it's not about was stand still back and pretty fourteen with anti-government protests that he led along so i did want to

demanding that nawaz sharif resign from office now qadri has been called upon by scene early on and he in fact led the futile prayers for this child yesterday and it became clear from his speech at the at the few hooper's itself that he was really trying to direct this more towards the government now no washee himself has been facing a tough few months in government is really a little bit on the ropes at the moment since he was disqualified over corruption charges last year and so called really really seems to be going for the kill on this. trying to direct if you will the anger of the crowd not just towards the perpetrators of this horrific act but also towards the government which is the feel responsible for somehow allowing this to happen what about the police in all of this they've been severely criticized what they've done to investigate the series of burgers. yeah the police are different even the prime target of a lot of the criticism i think in the public's eye or out here particularly those who are yesterday during that massive demonstration against their inability to find
7:56 pm
those responsible in this case and in the previous cases as well they opened fire on protesters and killed at least two people know that for their focus people's rage against them and again the mean question is why have they not found anybody responsible for these previous cases because there have been at least ten if not twelve cases of children being abducted and raped in the last year or so and the police have brought in none of those perpetrators to book in some cases as your sort referenced earlier they have said they've killed people in police encounters but the public's trust in that seems to be very very limited they don't know of the people killed were up to those responsible and of course the police and this would have a history with this as well where there was a child pornography ring a couple of years ago a massive massive kind of across blogs on that very much ignited the same kind of debate that we're seeing now but today the public says that they've not seen anybody being held to justice for those cases so thank you so much assad has sheen there for us in islamabad in pakistan.

deforestation is a major contributing factor to increasing amounts of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere but growing populations especially in developing countries with tropical rain forests require more land to live and grow food on it is a tricky balance to strike in the democratic republic of congo home to huge forests and carbon storing mog land for. the start of a new day in the democratic republic of congo. behind the village swamp land. satellite images have revealed the existence of a peach ball here in the forest. biologists say it's one of the most important of a discovered that's why a team of british and congolese scientists have embarked on a joint research project getting to the peak both involves an arduous hours long hike through the swamp everything is soaking wet english geography simon lewis has
7:58 pm
been surveying have for years trying to better understand the development of the ball which began forming tens of thousands of years ago made up of decomposed problem but aerial the piece held some surprises for the researcher is that this is peak bodies so this is the partially decomposed plant matter that in the store of carbon. needs is now sampled every fifty centimeters and this is three metres to three inches deep water surprises and we thought that peat here would be maybe fifty centimeters maybe one metre maximum and actually we've got much deeper so that suggests that potentially we haven't done all the work yet but potentially there's even more carbon stored on this side of the congo river. the scientists now calculate that the bulk is far bigger and deeper than they originally estimated the peak is up to six meters thick in places and covers an area about the size of great britain that's why maintaining the area is so important for the environment as you

see there is the seas rounding the forest to the forest is also spreading to kabul and stroking the cardboard so it's a double stocking cupboards above ground but almost then you need to carve one and also the underlying deposit and if you want this forest that's got double times releasing the cob one more card one india st the forests of the congo basin around the ever increasing pressure. similar primeval woodlands and asia have already disappeared and deforestation is now also a threat in this part about africa illegal locusts taking down more and more trees meanwhile the government is granting licenses some according to environmental groups and to g.b.'s circumstances but as local populations grow so does the need for the land to plant kosoff for instance. farmers like valentino

gobo say they have no choice to acquire new fields they say they have to drain at least some of the most for. two hundred and we have to maintain a balance between preserving nature and survival yes we need alternatives to deforestation but it's not that easy. to see if. there are new projects in place to help people pursue other life he heads that's why the environmental organization greenpeace has stepped tend to support the scientists financially and logistically and to teach the villagers more about why environmental protection is vital a government official explains the difficulties the country is facing if. we would have to provide aid to the people here so they don't take resources from the forest he bugs such projects cost money money the government doesn't have. and that's why we need the financial support of the international community. the
8:01 pm
activists say it's imperative to develop a strategy that provides financial support for the entire region otherwise the congolese authorities will continue to commit locating which will eventually lead to the release of vast amounts of sequestered. internet for knowledge is we need to find international solution is not only to help these countries protect these primeval forests but also to further study the peat bogs in order to protect them because they contain huge amounts of carbon going to shoot through there are some thirty billion tons of carbon trapped in there and that's the equivalent of three years of total global emissions from coal oil and gas combined. the scientists have finished for the day but it will take months to record an analyzer all the data they've collected providing more insight into one of the largest call them reservoirs on the planet. or bends back with

us now and for many years made in taiwan was a label of quality consumer goods but things were changing for a long time actually terry time with these brands enjoyed a solid reputation and foreign companies like apple and i.b.m. manufactured there but the local electronics hardware sector now faces a dwindling market share real profits come from software these days so taiwan is turning to its startups to invigorate the tech sector. just patience movements may look a bit clumsy but he's making a lot of progress by walking a few hundred meters it's all possible with this exoskeleton engineer change while who developed the walking robot first that the i t r i research institute and now it is own firm free by onyx. his colleague is testing the device he's one of some seventy million people confined to a wheelchair worldwide. kosovo. they've got
8:03 pm
a cause they can think up and they are going to help people to open. taiwan is one of the most high tech places on earth companies like h t c account for around a fifth of the country's g.d.p. by producing computers laptops and smartphones for the entire world but with cheaper chinese rivals breathing down their necks companies in taiwan need to keep their technological edge. in showrooms like this one they're focusing more on software. virtual or augmented reality. we're seeing. from many past. experiences like if you only do how were the march and walk s. lower and lower after. the the analogy get come out of ice so only going to holler is not a very good strategy for the long term established companies are turning to
8:04 pm
startups to tap new markets this firm develops artificial intelligence for surveillance cameras the more it software sees the more it learns it can differentiate between vehicles and traffic that's important for urban planners founder sean gone received ten million dollars from investors to develop the software the big tech names are also willing to pay for the latest know how. this is how the sauce and come on say hey we can go soft and we know how to go thought from we can help you to see the bigger corporations like the top ten they all start to have their venture capital for like their corporate car and they start investing in the market for artificial intelligence is expected to grow to one hundred thirty billion dollars worldwide by twenty twenty five and that opens up huge opportunities for a new generation of entrepreneurs in taiwan. the c.e.'s in las vegas one of the world's biggest consumer electronics shows comes to an end tomorrow this year more
8:05 pm

8:06 pm
here in eureka park there are around eight hundred startups from around the world and insiders are here looking for the next great innovation. i'm here to see the sort of which of these companies i think really have the necessary. second set of business to go along with like a school attack as it doesn't matter what you're making if you don't have the business skills are the business people needed to be successful then they're going to flop. but which new products could make it to the market there are so many here how about underwear that protects men from cell phone radiation or maybe three d. holograms which are created using every defense. and one of the big highlights is a little robot named buddy for those who are curious you can learn a bit of programming thanks to my application by the lab for this robot has been under development in france for the past three years but what is it for so betty
8:07 pm

8:08 pm
good qualities too. sorry sorry make room guys. the c.f. has shown that the big companies have the power and the money to opt for big shows full of cars and full upright and to put up a terrific technology a clearly the more realistic and useful technology in every day life i hear and you recount park where the start ups are. next up to real buddies of mine and how construction costs balloon for prestige projects but the test is whether it pays off in the if we're going to look at a case been where it does seem to have paid off at least that's the general verdict year ago on the eleventh of january the home only concert hall opened in hamburg it took six years longer to build and project it and it cost almost ten times more
8:09 pm
than originally estimated robin merrill is here from our culture desta talked about a collective sigh of relief when the first concert took place a year ago how has the hamburg concert hall fared since then very very well i mean as you mentioned. a difficult start with with the budget and with the time scale but it has definitely now become the landmark of. an impressive sight it has to be said and the locals as well who were grumbling greatly have also taken it to the house as well i mean but the talk has been about the building but it really is about the console we shouldn't forget that and it has had great success that being over six hundred concerts in the last three hundred sixty five days and you have to fight to get
8:10 pm
a ticket. local to call their new beloved concert hall if you. get tickets to a concert at hamburg. that's almost as difficult as winning the lottery the demand exceeds ticket availability many times over with over eight hundred fifty thousand people attending concerts in the last year that's without doubt a success story. but even those who couldn't get their hands on tickets enjoyed the elfie for free over four point five million visitors flocked to the plaza the viewing tacked on the eighth floor which offers a spectacular panoramic view across the city and. the elfie is now a celebrated landmark but it wasn't like that at first the huge project cost eight hundred sixty six million euros
8:11 pm
a sum that infuriated many hamburg locals and it was delayed by six years the long wait and the money spend was worth it says artistic director just off leaving the scene. i think we agree that it makes sense to spend a lot of money on an exceptional building like this of course exceeding the estimated costs wasn't the original plan for the sword but the music especially because it's classical music adds a great deal to hamburg's cultural scene. now that the trouble of the past seems to be forgotten and it's not longer about the money but just about the music. sounded good to me it's been a lot of talk about the acoustics in the morning
8:12 pm
a lot of money has been spent on them how good are really amazing i have to say for classical music this is down to the design of the holes and also the guy was brought in the a coup station just to hear toyota from japan who was brought in but first talk about the design there is the architects i have. wrong sort of big time architects who done the malden and things like that anyway the two thousand one hundred concert goers in the ground who you see here that none of them are more than thirty meters from the orchestra and the seating sort of stacked up a bit like a modern football stadium and when it comes to the acoustics you can see here these honeycomb like wolves there are ten thousand of these fiber panels in the hole that reflect. the sound and is the very famous french counted of if we just hear him for a second testing out here cousteau. i
8:13 pm
mean i hope people can hear that is incredibly. the only downside on so i have experienced myself but a friend has pop concerts in there which is you know with with amplified sound not so good it's a spectacular setting as was just seen inside and out but i believe it's also being used not just for for pop concerts or above all classical music for other things as well yes i think it's going to be very popular for other events very first of all this this viewing platform that is spectacular views of hamburg has been visited more the noise. the last four point five million people visit today and indeed yes talking of events the man himself the great cull lagerfeld held a fashion show. in this and it was very great success it had
8:14 pm

this is you know he was lying firm girl in closing ranks the european union throws its weight behind the iran nuclear deal after meeting with iran's foreign minister and they say the deal is working and they challenge president shop to come up with a better alternative as he decides whether it's a really imposed sanctions on tehran also coming up it's decision day here in berlin political leaders have until tonight to reach a deal on storing a formal coalition talks or will they meet the deadline and what happens if they
8:19 pm
fail. and downs of those who rallied in pakistan to protest against the rape and murder of an eight year old girl they want to know why the police were so slow to respond. to the. iraq it's a pleasure to have you with this european union powers are urging president trump to endorse the nuclear agreement with iran speaking after a meeting in brussels with the iranian foreign minister they reaffirmed their commitment to the deal saying it's essential for international security and that it was working person trump is known to opposed to a deal calling it quote the worst ever the e.u. meeting comes just a day before trump is expected to decide whether to reimpose certain sanctions on iran. for the iranian delegation brussels was of reassurance couldn't come at
8:20 pm
a better time the foreign ministers of britain germany and france as well as the e.u.'s foreign policy chief reaffirmed their support for the iran nuclear deal which u.s. presidents donald trump has threatened to lead to the deal is working it is the living on its main goal which remains keeping the iranian nuclear program in check and only those in the surveillance mogilny played an important role in crafting the landmark nuclear accord in the summer of two thousand and fifteen she has lobbied hard to convince washington to keep the nuclear issue separate from other contentious issues with tehran such as its ballistic missile program what the nuclear deal could however facilitate is talking about these issues something all ministers emphasized in brussels and a tradition with regard to or with the new of course we must also address the situation in iran we are all very concerned regarding the rights of those
8:21 pm
demonstrating in the streets we are convinced that people have a fundamental right to demonstrate on top of that we also need to talk about iran's actions in the wider regional individual of the. deal announced that iran had committed to a dialogue over its role in war torn yemen and syria but whether the nuclear deal and the diplomatic channels that come with it remain intact now depends on the u.s. president's donald trump is expected to decide on friday whether to reimpose sanctions against tehran. all right indeed he is max often joins us now from brussels he's been following these talks for you max the e.u. is adamant that iran that they ironically a deal can be renegotiated what happens come tomorrow and president trump makes good on his promise to terminate the deal. then you only have two parties left in the deal because the e.u. has said no matter what happens they'll stick to the deal iran is a different story so the question really will be how effective is this deal
8:22 pm
afterwards how effective will it be if the u.s. really starts sanctioning companies that try to meet business with iran because you will have many european countries that would be affected by that and it would really have a huge gap between the u.s. and the european union maybe the largest gap up to date after the second world war at least on a global stage unprecedented unprecedented well let's talk a bit more about that max because with this show of unity the e.u. is basically advising the trumpet ministration against tearing this deal up how big is the wedge between the e.u. and the u.s. at the moment it's not as big as you might think because the thing is the europeans and we just heard that in the report but do acknowledge that there are major problems the way iran is conducting itself in the region but also of course the other problems that iran now has at home with all the protests so they say we need to talk about that the difference with the u.s.
8:23 pm
is just that they say this is not part of the deal we need to we need to talk about this separately so two separate things and the us say no we're going to use the nuclear agreement to increase our leverage on these issues right there and that's the main difference they all do acknowledge that there are problems beyond the nuclear program with iran all right well let's talk about one of those problems that you referenced in your answer because this decision of course going to come at a worse time for the iranian government still reeling from a string of anti-government protests how the foreign ministers are brought up by the authorities handling of these demonstrations that with the foreign minister. it was a very short meeting about almost one of the half hours something like that so they didn't have much time to discuss these things in depth but the german foreign minister said yes they did talk about this and it was an important part of their discussion and you know i think you have to look at the situation as a whole it's not just the nuclear deal it's not just the way that iran is trying to
8:24 pm
influence thing in the wars in syria and yemen it's not only what's happening in iran itself they're trying to have the full package to increase leverage that's what the french president in money market all said last week and he said we need to keep the nuclear deal because of this because it gives us a way in to negotiate now the u.s. they have different means they have hard power european union is a soft power they try to solve these things through diplomacy and that's why you have the difference in emphasis what they're trying to do in trump apparently is trying to use the hard power of the united states to get some results something where the european union completely would lose its influence aren't max hoffman reporting from brussels thank you. i want to tell you now about some of the other stories that we're covering for you right now the saudi led coalition of fighting in yemen has said it tortured an attack on a saudi tanker by who think fighters over the weekend the coalition destroyed
