this is the abuse live from berlin could there be a new friend nuclear deal a little each will training party toes the manly handshake and the drone and trump heading off to have the white house that is down to business with president trump talking about a possible new deal also coming up. the world gathers help rebuild syria the united nations wants nine billion dollars germany's foreign minister pledges an additional one billion euros. and protesters returns of the
streets of armenia's capital euro bond they got rid of the prime minister and now they want to house the governing party they say it goes completely corrupt. i'm brian thomas thanks so much for being with us at the white house the american and the french presidents have made a public display of friendship at a state dinner but behind all the camaraderie president trump offered few concessions to his french guests so where does that for example leave the iran nuclear deal we're talking about that after this report. pomp and ceremony at the white house french president emmanuel macro is on the first state visit by a foreign leader under the presidency of donald trump. please don't mess out proclaimed friendship was on full display time. and time again.
but we do have a very special relationship in fact i'll get that peace and then. there is no peace we have to make them perfect is perfect situations and that's with many friendships opinions on several key issues deferred simply on iran hundred deal signed in twenty fifteen tehran agreed to limit its nuclear program which it maintains was for peaceful civilian purposes in return for an easing of economic sanctions. it's a bad deal it's a bad structure it's falling down should have never ever been made i blame congress i blame a lot of people for but i will say if iran threatens us in any way they will pay
a price like few countries have ever paid we're going to meetings today we crawl in proposed a solution relationship between our countries you can see did they could you consider the around deal to be a bad deal for a number of months i've been saying it's not a sufficient deal but it has enabled us until twenty twenty five to have some sort of control over their nuclear activities we want to work on a new deal with iran. the iran deal is not the only source of disagreement possible u.s. tariffs on steel and aluminum for the european union the paris climate coast and washington's decision to recognize to restrain mr capital of israel trump and macro also discuss the upcoming summit with north korea with regard to the war in syria from thanks to macro for france joining the u.s. and britain in strikes often alleged chemical attack earlier this month however the outlook on solving the syrian crisis differed macro favorite pushing for a new solution to end the war there is trouble stressed his exit plans. i
would love to get out i'd love to bring our incredible warriors back home they've done a great job we've essentially. just absolutely obliterated isis in iraq and in syria. after a day with a big agenda the leaders rounded things off with an official state dinner at the white house. well after those hints of a new iran deal in washington i asked forest foreman of bard college here in berlin if mccrone is succeeding in bringing president trump over to his way of thinking well perhaps it looks like that i think it's also a story of it's a question of face saving measures trouble be able to back down without any kind of damage to his political capital at home of the congress elections are coming up so he has to maintain his stature as a strong leader but what i think mccall is suggesting is that there can be
compromise that is a face saving measure which keeps the. current deal in place perhaps rename it in order for it to look different and then at other measures to it so that trump at home can say well he did what he promised. that was boris foreman of bard college here in berlin talking to me earlier. on top item on the two leaders agenda has been syria with a major donors conference for that country now underway germany has pledged an extra one point two billion dollars in aid for syrian refugees both inside the war torn country and in neighboring countries now that pledge came as governments aid groups start the second and final day of that donor's conference the e.u.'s foreign policy chief frederick marine is called on russia iran and turkey to halt the fighting and to do all they can to stop the fighting in syria as well as drumming
up aid organizers hope the conference will revive the stalled u.s. led peace goals it's. let's go straight to brussels now and our correspondent there beyond riegert a bat germany's the single biggest donor in the syrian crisis and for mr iko masses announced another billion euros that's one point two billion dollars from germany what's behind that high level of german aid. the main purpose of this donor conference is of course to drum up as much support as possible for the syrian people it's much much money as even possible and the self proclaimed goal was six point five billion euros and the conference is well underway to achieve this goal in germany is giving the biggest slice of that and that is not out of just. gratitude is also a surf interest because germany is interested to to keep syrian refugees as close
to syria as possible in the neighboring countries and in syria of germany and they you want to prevent that syrian refugees come to europe and therefore they pay the united nations agencies and aid burkas to feed syrians in syria or the neighboring countries and that's why the amount of money that is paid is so high that not only germany but also the united states drumming up support they paid more than last year although president trump threatened not to do that you know agencies get more from the u.s. from the e.u. and germany and others ok now as you mentioned germany and all of europe have a lot at stake here on the eve and policy chief has picked up on that federico mcgrane is calling for a new political push let's listen to what she had to say. syria is not the chessboard for a big player this city belongs to the syrian people and here today we will mobilize
on one site political support for a political process and the un also this is the only context in which a political solution can be found for syria the european union has. devoted so far almost eleven billion euros to the syrian people both inside syria and in the region and we will continue to support the syrians. raney their you know a new political initiative that's a very ambitious goal are russia turkey and iran open for example to a new political mission. but the problem is the russians are not on board and they will not be on board on the first cebu future because the assad regime which is supported by russia is on its way to a kind of a military victory in the syrian draw and as long as that happens the russians have no reason to give in and to join any effort to have a political solution in the un circus circular to council is still blocked between
the russians and the americans and the conference he is preparing for for the long haul for a solution not inside full for many years to come and there's no change inside in syria and the u.s. is on the other side to be only can participate in a rebuilding and reconstruction of syria if there is a regime change and democratic opposition comes to power and that is not inside for for the for the future bad for her life in brussels at that major donors conference for syria are now back thanks very much. let's now get some of the other stories making the news at this hour the leader of germany's jewish community has warned jews to avoid wearing the kepler yarmulke that's the traditional skull cap to reduce the risk of attack last week two young men wearing a kippah as in berlin were assaulted attacked or a syrian migrant shouted and he's medically marks. a chord in the indian city of

h.a.h.k. out of power completely because what if it's what it says is endemic corruption a meeting scheduled between the opposition leader and the ruling party has been canceled. let's go straight to the armenian capital now your of on did obvious emily sure when is standing by for us there emily can you tell us what's going to happen where you are today. well what's going on is that the opposition leader and he called question young came out onto the main square today and people rallied there and now they are as you can see behind me they're marching through caravan. and the opposition leader also called for a strike now the people here are marching they're wearing fly they're cheering they're calling for an independent and i mean ok you know the opposition is already docked its main goal the prime minister out what do they want to see happen now.

order to win an unprecedented second treble he needs to be bogey side rail madrid a team they haven't defeated in the last five and counts is behind this is still confident of reaching the final. and the atmosphere here in the team is phenomenal . but an atmosphere like that is also the only way you can be successful or come and that's why i'm optimistic and of these two games of the mistake they'll need to stop christian on the run out of he single handedly carried madrid into the semifinals last season hitting five caused by it over the two legs this time around reality expecting a considerably better performance from brian. made models endeavor moving on to me they seem hungry for success at the moment and of course when you've been knocked out in the semifinals and last year in the quarter final you definitely want to reach the final again that's obvious so we're expecting a revved up and hungry by i mean team from beyond these of whom take on high says
