11:00 am
craig i think it's only the beginning of this sort of machines starting february first on t w. this is due to have been news coming to you live from both ends dissolved a lot if i'm going to magically book a stable government she's from his germany still just a possibility social democrats and natalie voted to enter fullmer talks with i'm glad that those conservatives the final cornish indeed took any months of political deadlock is far from guaranteed or succumb enough u.s.
11:01 am
president or vice president mike frandsen gets a woman welcome in stress but office and indeed has refused to meet with him after trunks decision on jerusalem is america finished as a peace broker in the middle east. to keep ounds killer dishman issue positions in northern syria as ground troops rolled across the border for a second day the killings kicked back with their own docket file. lawsuits in the bundesliga runaway leaders behind munich forced to work hard minded knows how things all the only against bad agreement of the champions for earnings then. hello and welcome i'm on the thought she. germany sees a major breakthrough after four months of waiting for a new government the social democrats have now really agreed to pursue formal coalition talks with conservatives fifty six percent of party delegates pushed
11:02 am
through a guess vote at a nail biter of a party congress a slim margin many that many had predicted that could embolden the leaders in the tough talks that still lie ahead. a tense moment for german politics yesterday with a narrow majority of s.p.d. delegates voting in favor of the coalition talks their leader martin schulz visibly relieved after surviving the cliffhanger about. chancellor merkel was also quick to express her relief welcoming the decision of her potential coalition partners. not in the city to provide some of the season you cleared the way for coalition talks last week we welcome the news that the social democrats have followed serious at their party conference. after intensive and sometimes controversial debate they reached
11:03 am
a positive result. that means the path is now open for full coalition talks life. opposition parties however condemned the move slamming a future grand coalition for lack of vision and the social democrats for dithering over whether to join government. about this dinner in talks you get the impression that it's almost like punishment to govern germany that doesn't exactly suggest a fresh forward looking start for the next grand coalition because it's all. it's clear that this will just keep the status quo going in spite of all the insistence otherwise. on. a new edition of the last grand coalition is essentially a continuation for the loses unfair that action that's a very bad signal especially for german invasion is not all about and ought mind a bit first on this does nothing of the tight result at the s.p.d. conference i fear their leaders will try to get more concessions from the conservatives and knowing merkel's methods that will mean smoothing things out by
11:04 am
spending lots of taxpayer money so who should to indeed yesterday's s.p.d. conference called on party leaders to obtain further concessions from merkel's conservatives on immigration health and employment policy satisfying those grassroot demands could prove crucial when the s.p.d. is entire membership votes on a final coalition agreement. as we know drawn up little correspond fabiana funded maku at the jail in fall of one welcome five we know the s.p.d. result was much narrower than expected how much pressure does this put on the coalition talks. the pressure is big in the s.p.d. and here behind me the parliamentary group of the s.p.d. has just met for two hours and martin shows the s.p.d. leader was part of this meeting and he expressed within the meeting his determination to negotiate hard with the conservatives in the now following
11:05 am
coalition talks with america's conservatives on the topics that you have just mentioned because he knows that the s.p.d. has to deliver given the fact that the grassroots have the last say at the very end and given the fact that forty four percent yesterday were and in favor of this grand coalition in fact some conservative voices are already said they're not prepared to make any more concessions to the s.p.d. so how much room for maneuver does john magaw have in these still. well i'm actually herself said yesterday that she is willing to negotiate within the framework of the preliminary talks that social democrats and conservatives have that means talk about details within this piece of paper martin should just hear sounded differently he said no is the beginning of negotiations everything else was in negotiations now is the beginning so hard stance there from the social democrats but the conservatives particularly the very insistent party of america see as you
11:06 am
they have already ruled out concessions particularly in the field of migration where c.s. us tradition the quite hard stance and they have elections this year so it's probably hard for the s.p.d. to reach something in this field so still some tough talking head so what kind of time then are we looking at for the formation of a potential new government. we expect now three weeks of hard negotiations between social democrats and the conservatives then afterwards there would be a coalition treaty and then we expect two or three weeks for this grassroots vote of the s.p.d. and then the middle of march there could be the election of a new government and around easter end of march this new government could be in place in germany but many ifs and when still. a foreign funded lock at the german parliament thank you very much. germany and france are celebrating the fifty

11:10 am
recognize the contested city as israel's capital and to move the u.s. embassy there. but palestinian leader mahmoud abbas will not be meeting bans he'll be in brussels meeting e.u. officials ahead of the talks foreign policy chief greeny again contradicted u.s. policy on jerusalem this is what she said. clearly there is a problem with jerusalem would say this is a very diplomatic euphemism and we europeans as well as all the art of words and the united nations system such. still continue to believe that the only pragmatic realistic solution for jerusalem has to come from direct negotiations and has to be the capital of two states. if i'm on this issue let me draw in our jerusalem correspondent tanya crema she's near the israeli parliament the knesset where mike pence is due to speak and tell me i'm mike pence a described jerusalem as the capital of israel what sort of signal of dissent but
11:11 am
underscoring this during his visit there. well i mean he's expected to say that he fully supports the decision by president trump who declared in december the truisms the capital of israel and he had got a very very warm welcome here by israeli leaders by the government and as he said he would speak also at the knesset later we're standing here nearby which has been called already by some as an story so you got a very warm welcome that's expected that he supports decision of course if you ask the palestinian leaders and also i repeat as the region he just came from visiting egypt and jordan they're highly criticized they could criticize his decision and palestinian leaders have already in december said he is not going to be welcome and they have called off any meeting with him in protest of the u.s. decision to recognize to reset the capital of israel and talking about fantasy and
11:12 am
let's listen to a senior p.l.o. member and on a shabby talking about mike pence ahead of his visit. there that is extremist fundamentalist look to the last. absolutist the geology which goes against all the beliefs and commitments of the arab and palestinian christians and particular and they feel that they have been betrayed by somebody who is kneeling. to manderson justice using diligent as a justification. so as we have a strong word someone on piers there's no trust left between the palestinians and the current u.s. administration tanya. yeah that's right and. these words i've been hearing them a lot palestinian leaders as well they were echoed also by people on the street and what mrs travis also looting to that mr penton seen as very close to the to the eventually this. very. who is supporting this decision on calling to
11:13 am
send the capital off now what the palestinians want to see is that they're saying that the u.s. conky anymore the soul in any kind of peace initiative we all know that mr trump always has said he wants to make the ultimate deal but they're saying we have to find other partners we have to find other parties to step in and to fill this void that from their point a few has been left by the u.s. because they do not trust the u.s. and then negotiation efforts and that gap be fitted by the e.u. could it give the lead to the peace process as we're seeing palestinian leader mahmoud abbas's in brussels. yeah i think this is what is the aim of this visit by president abbas brussels he will tell probably the european leaders that. the persons want to continue pursuing a peace but he also wants to you to take
11:14 am
a more stronger role a more political role and that is one of the main donors in the palestinian occupied territories but they have to take more on the role and also there's talk about maybe a different mechanism so that it's not the u.s. that is the only and sole in this. in a new peace initiative can you claim in jerusalem thank you very much for that. reports by rights groups say turkish air strikes have killed at least eleven civilians in northern syria this on the second day off a turkish ground offensive into syria to asked u.s. allied kurdish militia from the area the operation was met with a hail of rockets on turkish towns killing at least one refugee the turkish offensive on african is code named operation olive branch it began on saturday and has heightened tensions in the already complicated syrian conflict the united states has urged turkey to exercise restraint.

11:19 am
a stable german government so that germany has a voice in formulating foreign and especially european policy in another representative german chambers of industry and trade said please tax reform with lower rates meeting the challenge of other countries like united states which are lowering taxes or it's a long wish list let's see what comes to fruition early votes in frankfurt thank you so much. twenty seventeen was a record year for cuba tourism with four point seven million this it is pumping around three billion dollars into the island's economy but president on its trans tighter travel rules make it hard for some to turn a profit tourism dollars from big spending americans seem to be heading into cuba state sector and away from private business. the man overlooking revolution square is a legend che guevara the man on the harley is his son and this to give our eyes the owner of love put it was a tourist and he's showing tourists across have on his guests love it the business
