1:02 pm
a slim majority and still though it's still considered a big breakthrough as germany's two biggest political parties the idea of another grand coalition. was a tense moment for german politics yesterday with a narrow majority of s.p.d. delegates voting in favor of full 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 a positive result. and that means the path is now open for full coalition talks
1:03 pm
five. opposition parties however condemned the move slamming a future grand coalition for lack of vision and the social democrats for did the ring 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 basically stops and it's clear that this will just keep the status quo going in spite of all the insistence otherwise. i'm all for 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 very much is not all through the vienna and gotten mind of the first method 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 spending lots of taxpayer money so who should have to be out indeed yesterday's
1:04 pm
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 to monster could prove crucial when the s.p.d. is entire membership votes on a final coalition agreement. if we do enough political correspondent five in fun democracies inside the german parliament fobbing talks are expected to start soon but the s.p.d. is already indicated it wants to read renegotiate key issues. yes that's true martin should the leader of the s.p.d. had a meeting earlier on this day with the parliamentary group of the social democrats and in this meeting he expressed again his determination to really now restart or actually begin the negotiations for him everything before now was preliminary talks and now he said the coalition talks begin and he ones to make these points that were mentioned in the piece he need feels the need and he knows that he has to
1:05 pm
deliver because yesterday there was just fifty six percent in favor of the grand coalition and there's still the grassroots vote to come so a lot of pressure on the s.p.d. and also pressure on chancellor angela merkel some conservative voices have already said did not do a bit to make any more concessions to the s.p.d. . yes that's true i mean actually herself she said yesterday that the preliminary talks they gave a result which for her is the framework now for the coalition talks which means she would be able or she could imagine to go into detail within this framework but beyond the framework it's a lot harder for her even if she would imagine changes to be possible she would have a lot of problems with her coalition partner because with her sister party the varian c.s.u. they have already ruled out concessions to the social democrats particularly on the field of migration but that is one of the points that margin shows once to score so
1:06 pm
tough negotiations to come here so given all of these on the result issues what kind of timeline are we looking at for the formation of a potential new government fabia. we expect three weeks probably of tough negotiations between the social democrats and the conservatives after that if the coalition treaty is fix. the grassroots then would have to vote that would take probably another two to three weeks and then the middle of march a new government could be elected here in parliament and at the end of march around easter this new government could actually begin to act five in front of mark in the german parliament thank you very much for that. but the germans the past four months of political deadlock have been unexpected an unprecedented what do they think about the possibility now of another grand coalition government between the
1:07 pm
social democrats and ugly americans conservatives because a few opinions on the streets of but a mystic listen. i'm pleased and i think they should take their mandate seriously and form a government. doesn't matter which coalition it is we've missed our chance to change something the status quo hasn't been good for anyone. to carry with us mike and i mean this way in trying it out is our only option although i would have preferred a coalition with the liberals and the greens. it's really you i nearly died for you don't to be honest i would have rather had a minority government than here the elections were months ago and they still haven't formed a government. and yeah sure if you start i think they should get on with forming the grand coalition they should pull together and get something done now so that things can finally move forward. and i think there are a pressing issues that need to be dealt with six months since. germany and the
1:08 pm
european union reform it's about time something was done about it that's difficult without a government. this article or some other stories making news around the world of form of vietnamese state oil executive who allegedly was kidnapped from germany has been sentenced to life imprisonment for embezzlement to shaun tan was seeking asylum in germany but disappeared from the capital last year and germany accuses the agents of snatching him from a bull in park. spanish prosecutors have moved to an to have ousted leader carlist arrested after he traveled from denmark to denmark from belgium is the first time bridge more has left belgium since he fled spain to avoid arrest on charges of sedition and rebellion he's being investigated over a declaration of independence following a job as a referendum. a motorcycle bomb has exploded in

a market in thailand's southern province killing three and wounding many more the region is home to a long running islamist insurgency but no group has claimed responsibility. u.s. vice president mike pence has kicked off his visit to israel saying it was a great honor to be in israel's capital jerusalem burns was welcomed with military honors as he met israeli prime minister binyamin netanyahu thinks is the first top u.s. official to visit jerusalem since the trump administration's decision to officially recognize the contested city as israel's capital and to move the u.s. embassy there ben says his visit to jerusalem will give a boost to the middle east peace process have a listen. in making his historic announcement on december the sixth president roh did so convinced. that by by recognizing. israel's capital to respond.
1:10 pm
that we would create an opportunity to move on in good faith negotiations between israel and the palestinian people on issues that can be discussed and president trump truly believes can be resolved. and that we join in jerusalem correspondent tanya crema she's near the israeli parliament the knesset where mike spencer is a day right now tanya mike pence also said upon what we just heard that the dawn of a new era of peace negotiations is starting how will that comment go down there do you think. well on the one hand you got certainly a very warm welcome by the israeli leaders prime minister netanyahu saying it's an honor to stand here for the first time somebody saying they're here in the capital of israel with the u.s. vice president who just arrived as you said behind me here in the knesset to give
1:11 pm
a speech. some saying it's going to be an historic speech in the knesset but at the end of the day it's very difficult to understand what he means by a new era. of negotiations because he's not going to meet with any palestinian leader official the palestinians have said long ago that they will not meet with the vice president and just protest over that u.s. decision now we're seeing live pictures of appends in the knesset as we talk not only appends again reiterated that the u.s. recognizes jerusalem as the capital of israel what message did he send by making those remarks in jerusalem knowing that the palestinians are enraged mind this decision. well that's exactly that i mean palestinians have made already clear in to send after mr trump made his announcement to recognize true islam as the cups of israel and mr pence was supposed to come of it in december his trip to the region
1:12 pm
it was postponed twice they had made it clear that he's not welcome here and they're not the only ones also previously this president was framed as being also visit to support the christian communities but also most of the church leaders have said they're not welcoming him so this is the message he's giving his sales talking on the one hand about negotiations maybe it's meaning this new initiative that the u.s. president has been talking about this ultimate deal don't know any details about that but it's very difficult if one side of this negotiation process is not even part of dismiss it the missing pitches off mike pence in the knesset is the bar to address israeli parliamentarians but the palestinians have refused to meet pence in fact the palestinian leader mahmoud abbas is in brussels let's have a listen to what you foreign policy chief credit among greeny said about the peace process area. clearly there is a problem with jerusalem i would say this is
1:13 pm
a very diplomatic euphemism and we europeans as well as all the art of words and the united nations system as such. still continue to believe that the only pragmatic realistic solution for general salim has to come from direct negotiations and has to be the capital of two states. attorney one painters in jerusalem abbas is in brussels of what is a boss hoping to get from the e.u. during his meetings there. i think what he's hoping to get it's more support from the european countries will probably ask him to step in more not just to be a main donor year in the occupied palestinian territory but also to be politically more of political weight here and maybe to step in also as a partner for a possible new peace initiative. if that might come around what the palestinians are looking for what they have been saying of the past couple of months and weeks
1:14 pm
is that they can't see the u.s. as the honest broker anymore they can see us as the sole and many a time in such a new initiative one such it's such an initiative would ever come and so what they want to see is other mechanisms they want to have other partners and part parties be involved in that and i think this is what do you palestinian president of us is trying to get from the you although we are knowing that you is not speaking is not able to speak with one voice this is also about bilateral matter between the different countries johnny crema in jerusalem thank you very much. turning now to turkey and rights groups it turkish and northern syria have killed at least eleven civilians this on the second day of a turkish ground offensive into syria aimed at ousting u.s. backed go this militia from the area the turkish offensive on afrin is code named
1:15 pm
operation olive branch it began on saturday and has heightened tensions in the already complicated syrian conflict the operation was met with a hail of rockets on turkish towns killing at least one refugee the united states has urged turkey to exercise restraint. and because one dorrian jones is covering the story for us and joins me from istanbul jordan turkey is pushing ahead with its gratified supertankers in troops into northern syria it appears to be facing strong resistance there. so as in the are those ripples of intense fighting going on in the african enclave turkish state news agency claim that turkish forces have captured a number of villages but this the kurdish militia the y p g claim that they have recaptured at least two of them amid heavy ongoing fighting on another front free syrian army elements of the free syrian army of the front against the syrian kurdish militia again reports of heavy fighting there and despite turkey having
1:16 pm
this overwhelming firepower before the ground and backed by airstrikes they are facing off a middle opponent the free says the syrian kurdish militia are very highly organized disciplined and back to the hall of the years of fighting these lambic state i don't believe to be very well armed the united states has been backing these kurdish militia in the war against the islamic state but that is why turkey say it is so necessary to carry out this operation they accuse this militia of supporting a kurdish insurgency inside turkey but in this ongoing fighting there is over a million civilians called top and we are hearing growing reports of civilian casualties many blamed on turkish air strikes on princess is taking all steps to minimize casualties in fact. has made a rousing speech defending to operation what do you have to say. but indeed this is more of the same he's drawing on very heavy nationalist rhetoric he's saying that this is a country battle for the future of the country he says our country has to unite
1:17 pm
against this and again a warning against anyone protesting or opposing it he repeated this warning any dissent will be seen as supporting terrorism and will be crushed more nationalist rhetoric more stirring up public support during jones thank you very much for that update. you're watching the news coming up ahead u.s. lawmakers refused to budge as the government shutdown enters its third day can they figure out a compromise to end the gridlock over immigration reform. but first want to go and joins me now for business news in a totally new shopping experience in the u.s. there are some offers you the experience of what it's like when you do some shoplifting at least that's how i imagine it but don't worry it's totally legal the online retail giant amazon has opened a convenience store in seattle called amazon go where customers won't have to wait in line or use

1:19 pm
steps up to the microphone this coming thursday and lots of people expect that there will be some change in the wording of the e.c.b. and of mario draghi after the meeting and people are expecting this change because of the protocol of the last meeting the minutes of the last meeting which indicated that the easy bit easy being members were anxious to change the wording to make it more clear to make it more clear that they wanted to communicate in a steady way in a careful way how to get out of quantitative easing that is bond buying and at some time also communicate rate rises in a more clear way in order to avoid turmoil in the market of course of mario draghi does too much too soon then there will be that term turmoil if he doesn't have the kind of transparency that people expect the not will disappoint markets to. the way
