we need to upgrade i think it's only the beginning of this. cycle human machines starting february first on t w. this is d w. tonight a message to mark the calendar the u.s. embassy in israel will move to jerusalem by the end of next year u.s. vice president mike pence made that announcement in a speech to israel's parliament today he received a standing ovation but israeli arab lawmakers were thrown out of the chamber for protesting fences visit and strong policy on jerusalem also coming up
a surprise deal in washington the u.s. senate votes to end the government shutdown paving the way for hundreds of thousands of people to go back to work and germany's a social democrats get set for negotiations to form another grand coalition with conservatives but the chancellor will not have an easy rock. you. bring coffee it's good to have you with us the vice president mike pence has told the israeli knesset that the american embassy will move to jerusalem by the end of next year now that's earlier than expected and it only adds to the controversy mike pence is the first u.s. politician to visit the region since president recognized jerusalem as israel's capital last my. israeli arab lawmakers made their opposition to the move clear
right from the start of fences speech. the protests even before mike pence had begun his speech out of his really lawmakers were ushered from the knesset after waving signs at the u.s. vice president following donald trump's incendiary move to recognize jerusalem as the capital of israel. but some theme are you saying show east jerusalem including the police and the al aqsa mosque as a message that we had against chopstick liberation east jerusalem should be capital of palestine western islam capital of israel. pains he was given a much warmer welcome by israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu was unrepentant about the move he said that the u.s. was only recognizing fact of affection as a first step towards a new peace negotiations between israelis and palestinians the united states appreciates your government's declared willingness to resume direct peace
negotiations with the palestinian authority and today. we strongly urge the palestinian leadership to return to the table peace can only come through dialogue. it's a dialogue the palestinian authority is avoiding at least with the us palestinian president mahmoud abbas refused to meet pains traveling instead to brussels to try to convince you to to take a stand in this conflict. we consider the european union a true partner and friend we therefore call on its member states to swiftly recognize the state of palestine there is no contradiction between the recognition of palestine and there is some sort of peace negotiations that will follow. the u.s. though is determined that the move will go ahead and quickly pence announced that the u.s. embassy will relocate from tel aviv to jerusalem by the end of twenty one thousand
. are for more now we want to speak to our jerusalem correspondent tanya kramer good evening to you and yours so we know that the vice president said he came with a message from the u.s. president and we heard that today what else was in ben's is message to the knesset and to the world. well we heard a speech from impact with fifty could references and also praising history praising the ties between israel and the u.s. and also praising again the u.s. recognition of two slim as the capital of saying what has been done wrong in the past seventy years was being right this time by president trump he also talked about a vote on it was interesting because he said to you vote israeli sets and iran would never be able to develop a nuclear weapon and that the u.s. would not be able to certify the disastrous venue nuclear deal anymore in
the future and also of course what you mentioned already he finally said that the u.s. embassy this very controversy that's touched it was in recognition what. this meant that late to the end of next year that he would move from tel aviv. and we also heard the u.s. vice president saying that the u.s. decision to move the embassy is a first step towards a new era of peace negotiations now as far as we know he's not meeting with any palestinians while he is in the middle east so what are we hearing from the palestinians they're actually saying the opposite aren't they. yeah they do actually they would call it if it is the end of an era for them because the end of an era as the us as peace and negotiate or because at the moment there are no negotiations and the saw in the reports of pictures also of the israeli i have no
make hits on the joint list they had said before the speech that they would boycott the speech they went and the beginning of the speech and the protesting that removed the knesset this and this decision is all against any and the peaceful movement but not bring peace to the recency and to any peace initiative unpunished and so of course they have said already back in december shortly off to. announce its decision to recognize a truce and asked a couple of israel that they won't meet with any u.s. administration official because they say that the status of jerusalem should be caught a final status negotiation and that's also consensus they were all right there who responded in jerusalem tanya kramer on the story for us tonight tonya thank you very much in the united states the shutdown of the federal government is coming to an end after three day the senate has voted for a bill to fund the federal agencies which allows the government to resume its
business now after a lengthy negotiation democratic leaders in the senate agreed to end their delaying tactics in return for the republicans agreeing to debate the immigration issue especially the plight of so-called dreamers who were taken to the u.s. illegally as children and now could face deportation are let's go over now to washington our correspondent is standing by good evening to you michelle so why have the democrats why have they made this what appears to be a sudden reversal and decided to vote to end the shutdown. that's an excellent question and the fact is that did what they said they would not do before which is a vote for a bill that does not address the fate of the so-called dreamers and. they basically trust now that republicans as they promised to do will take up the issue of the dreamer separately in early february and the reason why they why the white
democrats might have done this is because they were probably afraid that this this shutdown would be blamed on then this especially those democrats running in competitive races in the midterm elections but what is interesting is that this could spell also trouble internally for the democrats as many left leaning progressive democrats and some of the most well known democrats bernie sanders and elizabeth warren but also cory booker and kirsten gillibrand voted against this bill so this could be a spelling trouble for the democrats. in the future come november what does this mean then in terms of another shutdown i mean does this mean that the matter is off the table and that the government will now be funded indefinitely no no it doesn't it's just again kicking the can down the road so to speak does this extension of the funding just runs until early february and then the whole matter will come up again in the congress and it remains to be seen if congress can
come up with a full full fledged resolution of this issue of once and for all but until then we could face the same situation again an early february for this shutdown was basically a two or three day shutdown over the weekend we can talk about a lot of impact that it had on the lives of many americans can we. no it didn't really have such a big impact because the as you said this was this was mostly just over the weekend and the government will resume operations now again probably one of the most crucial issues was that that the centers for disease control who monitor the current flu epidemic that is that is reaching the u.s. and has left some thirty children dead so far they have to stop monitoring that that flu epidemic and they will continue working on that again so that is that is good news and that this shutdown has ended our washington responded michelle can go on the story for us tonight from the u.s.
capitol michelle thank you. here's some of the other stories now that are making headlines around the world fighting on the turkey syria border intensified today as turkish troops and their allies advanced on the kurdish enclave of afrin inside syria the offensive is aimed at revising a u.s. backed kurdish militia that turkey considers to be a terror organization afrin is said to be surrounded but the current say that they have repelled the turkish troops from two villages which were seized on sunday pope francis has apologized for insisting that victims of pedophile priests and show proof to be believed but he continued to defend a chilean bishop accused of covering up the country's most notorious pedophile priest francis repeated that anyone who makes such accusations without providing evidence is guilty of slander. and germany's social democrats are promising some tough negotiations with americans conservatives on forming
a new government the s.p.d. voted by a slim margin to join formal coalition talks on sunday the party says that it's not satisfied with a preliminary agreement reached more than a week ago and is calling for a renegotiation of some key issues in the s.p.d. as leader martin scholz had this to say today. as a social democratic party we go into these coalition talks with the aim of giving germany a new government that not just improves the lives of the people in this country but also fulfills germany's international obligations with a view to the e.u. and the unity of you to. the discussions tonight in the spirit. and we want to pull in our political correspondent allison young he is outside the headquarters of the christian democrats the c.d.u. that i'm going to medicals party here in berlin good evening to you simon so what can we expect to come out of these talks you know the leader of the young wing of the s.p.d. he says that this coalition can only be
a repeat of the past four years. he has been well although there's been a decision by social democrats to press ahead with full coalition talks with angela merkel's conservatives were going to have to be a little bit more patient because serve the s.p.d. say that they need more time to decide exactly what how they're going to approach these talks with what personnel team in fact not going to come to the negotiations but also where they're going to try and push for some more concessions because of course so many people in the social democrat party has said that that's what they're looking for so tonight's meeting here at c.d.u. had courses with martin shields of the s.p.d. and the two conservative leaders is basically just to set the agenda set the timetable for talks that we expect will begin later this week and you know we've heard that the s.p.d.
party leader martin shoulders he says that he wants to revisit all of the key issues in these formal talks which are about to begin how much pressure does this put on these negotiations. well you know there's a lot of pressure because we've seen such a division within the s.p.d. so many people very unhappy about the fact that being in grand coalition is essentially as seen them lose support over the years in successive. but it's also they feel buried the social democrat agenda and so that's really the danger for them and that of course in a certain way strengthens martin chilton's hand because he can say to angela merkel look you know i've got my people waiting at home they're going to be given a vote on this coalition deal if we put one together so that there's no red meat in there for social democrats to get behind that asked to be something in terms of policy on the labor market on the health care system what some of these key areas
that have been identified where social democrats would like to see some concessions from angela merkel so right and so i mean we've got about twenty seconds left give us a date here is there any idea when we might see a new government here in germany was a few more weeks of talks brant and then as i say they'll be a vote of the s.p.d. membership to see if they approve the deal people here are saying it could be made moments before any new grand coalition government is sworn in so i'm young on the story for us tonight here in berlin simon thank you very much in russia opposition leader alexina valmy have suffered another setback after a moscow court ordered a foundation supporting him to shut down the justice ministry had filed a lawsuit against the foundation citing various irregularities last month election officials barden of all new firm running in march is presidential election. you
know it's one this sentence is the latest blow against kremlin critic. a judge in moscow has decided the opposition politicians foundation the fifth season of the year must be shut down she found it guilty of irregularities including listing a wrong administrative address the foundation has been used to pay rent and salaries at the politicians offices across russia now lawyers see the decision as politically motivated. and with the sentence is illegal we will appeal it i'm sure that the decision will be revoked or the european court for human rights will find it to be a breach of human rights conventions production to assure the trial happened so quickly that it's obvious that this is a political process to shut down the foundation as fast as possible because the off the words don't like that not viney is organizing a boycott of the elections. last month need took to you tube to call on his supporters to boycott the presidential election this march the appeal came after he was barred from taking part in the race because of
a previous fraud conviction and he says this is a trumped up charge and that without him the elections won't be legitimate. for the most of what putin is scared he's afraid of competing with me he sees the competition as a threat was last week several of the politicians campaign offices were searched by police supporters are currently preparing for russia wide protests in support of the boycott they say the court's decision won't change that. you're watching the w. news live from berlin still to come he's spent many hours in stadiums but not like this the former football star george where you are you sworn in as liberia's new president and he has some lofty goals. all right speaking of walk goals and we're going to the top of the swiss alps tonight don't we have you to talk about the world economic fourth that's right the one that is being prepared and that's going to start and you know. what that means that means
a lot of big names british prime minister the reason may french president emmanuel mccall and brazilian president michel those are just some of the world leaders that are expected to attend the world economic forum in davos and of course we can't forget u.s. president donald trump but of us is known for a very broad array of participants and topics here's a first look at what's. getting rid of the snow that could be one of the most important jobs in davos need to be cleared for many world leaders to make their way to the ski resort for the first time in almost two decades a sitting u.s. president will be taking part some think he needs to have discussions with other foreign leaders more than anyone. because he quote support is. whoever leader of a country does not have just a national perspective but an international perspective or global perspective presence of
a president of your own merits. will hopefully provide him even better recently over prospective but locals have a different view the u.s. president's attendance means even tighter security in davos and many here are not excited about trump. decision i don't care whether his coming or knowing at home. one doesn't even see him and idleness he him either didn't he didn't say and. i'm not really interested. and i don't think he'll come again until friday some seventy heads of state and government will be holding discussions about the global economy with representatives from the business world and n.g.o.s so we have three thousand participants coming together at the time where we see a lot of political talent shows at the same time we see that growth is back in the global economy but for us is a very important that is growth is more inclusive and creates more jobs but it's
not just about the global economy other topics on the agenda include technology and its challenges the gender pay gap and wealth inequality. and speaking of wealth inequality just like last year the international ngo oxfam released its annual inequality report in time for the world economic forum now oxfam says the number of billionaires worldwide has increased to two thousand and forty nine in the past year with their combined wealth going up thirteen percent and there's nothing bad with more billionaires but of course it comes at a price now let's take a look at some of those figures eighty two percent of the global wealth that was created in the last year got to the wealthiest one percent that's what oxfam is saying now let's put that into perspective for example in just four years the c.e.o. of one of the world's top fashion brands earns as much as a seamstress in bangladesh her entire life and to make things even worse oxfam also
notes that billionaires are usually experts in tax avoidance they're paying about two thousand billion dollars less in taxes than they should according to the respective loss of their countries a compare that to development aid paid out by the leading industrial nations to less developed countries which is just one hundred forty five billion dollars and while the world is looking at the millionaires and stars and of us here's a look at those who struck. the ox fam inequality report doesn't just say that the rich are getting richer it also says the fortunes of the world's poorest are not improving at all. fifty percent the bottom fifty percent of humanity three point seven billion people got nothing zero percent of the new wealth created is getting was bad the idea wealth is increasing six times faster than the wages of ordinary people this disparity is felt deeply in vietnam's don knight province where many
work in the textile and garment sector often far from home and away from their families land is thirty two and work six days a week for about one u.s. dollar an hour she can't afford to keep her children with her they live with their grandparents more than a thousand kilometers away. i don't have enough money to raise my two children and i have to save money for them to feed them that so they will be well fed like their friends i want it to be that way the way the only way. oxfam says it's badly paid work like lands that ensure goods are kept cheap and sold in massive volumes lining the pockets of corporate shareholders and executives to combat widening inequality the charity has called for ensuring a living wage for workers and imposing higher taxes on the wealthy. but only inequality is a problem for many even as well as getting ready to relaunch its currency exchange
system based on new technology but it's yet another week effort to counter a crisis that has brought the economy to its knees and its citizens too and the capital caracas we got to see how people are going on a dangerous treasure hunt out of sheer desperation to make ends meet. hands deep in the mud of the co i read in caracas this is how i'm hal and his friends make a living as the sips through their fingers the hoping to see something they can sell and all brings about a man. you can find everything has. brawn. gold that's what we're mainly looking for the look at the situation has put us here. because we don't have jobs in one place over. these last store discarded possessions coming clean jewelry like earrings and bracelets but it's dangerous walk the go i reflect gathers excess rainwater so
a heavy downpour could wash on her and his friends away. and the river stinks it's dirty and a potential health risk. but it met over time off first of all this is not treated water. it's like water from the bottom of your toilet bowl at home. imagine that every day you're exposed to the sport it's nothing more than sewage. back at about a fifth equality but the crisis has left people without a choice twenty six year old and lives with his father in one of the poorest areas of caracas he found a job as a street sweeper that for less than seven u.s. dollars a month searching the river is more lucrative but still i'm young enough for the barest essentials he wants to leave the country become. a d.m. but you know i would like to leave but that costs money to try to raise money as
you go but then the price of everything goes up and it's never enough you get ten thousand dollars but things that used to cost ten thousand and suddenly cost twenty thousand it's never enough life is so expensive and hot. for the time being and hal and his friends will continue scouring that. in caracas that was a symbol of the crisis in venezuela terrible situation of venice well that's all for business now we're going back to brant for a story on libya that's right here liberia where the former football star george weah has been sworn in as the new president and the huge celebrations he takes over from ellen johnson sirleaf in the country's first peaceful transition of power in more than seven decades we have played a pledge to end corruption to kick start the economy to create jobs and generally turn the country around and as he takes power the expectations could hardly be
