tv The Day - News in Review Deutsche Welle July 12, 2018 12:02am-12:30am CEST
the leaders of all nato countries arrived for their summit this morning in brussels not knowing what the u.s. president would say or do they got the answer over breakfast a trump tirade accusing germany of being owned by the russians thanks to shady pipeline politics tonight nato an alliance of somewhere between being divided and being dumbfound brink off berlin this is the day. germany as far as i'm concerned this captive to russia germany is totally controlled by russia because it's getting so much energy from russia sixty to seventy percent of their energy from russia and the new pipeline so we're supposed to protect germany but they get into energy from russia explained that we have
a very very good relationship with the chance to we have a tremendous relationship and. expects dollars to give them one let me just say names high thirsty and experienced when a positive gemini was under soviet control and it's for the movie i'm very glad there were a united today include him as the federal republic of germany on stuff that we can naturally side say that we can make our own policies and we make independent decisions. also coming up history was made in moscow tonight croatia reaches the world cup final for the very first time i being lind took the lead in the fourth minute of the game but the ratio fought back grabbing an equaliser and winning the game an extra todd hill battle france for the world cup tie. we begin the day get nato head.
borders in brussels where the word bipolar is being used a lot tonight not to describe any security threat but rather to explain the words and actions of the alliance's a leading member u.s. president donald trump the us president he wasted no time this morning over breakfast he launched an attack on all members for spending too little on defense he then went on a verbal offense or they get germany claiming that it had become beholden to russia to meet its energy needs while expecting the united states to provide its security by this afternoon mr trump was sitting next to the german chancellor shaking her hand and praising the u.s. relationship with germany but the german chancellor in her muted manner could not hide that trumps accusations were personal for her medical referred to her own past in soviet controlled east germany to highlight the country that she leads today is free and independent nothing bi-polar about where she states we have this report on
one of the most divisive nato summit it's ever. trump took aim at the german chancellor saying her country wants us protection from russia while cutting energy deals with moscow at the same time germany he charges is a captive of the kremlin. germany will have over seventy percent of the country controlled by russia with actual gas so you tell me is that appropriate i mean really like you complaining about this all the time like getting a shit is never going to actually happen but germany is totally controlled by russia. merkel was quick to respond with some perspective from her own biography. expects the oars if i'd like to say that i personally experienced a part of germany when it was controlled by the soviet union. i'm glad that today we are united in freedom and that we can therefore also say that we determine our
policies independently and can make independent decisions it's a pretty good but i can certainly get inside and think on the open discord between germany and the us has overshadowed the summit all eyes skyward the only moment where everyone was looking in the same direction harmony is not in trump's nato playbook he'd rather set the agenda including his one on one meeting with nato general secretary young start in burke. tranced chief complaint the u.s. pays too much other nato members pay too little for the president with the company wants more refugees over the structure many. years back where they're dealing with very very good united states favor that in two thousand and fourteen only britain and greece made the agreed contribution of two percent of g.d.p. for defense spending germany lags behind with one point eighteen percent this year according to nato poland the three baltic countries and romania will all reach the
two percent mark germany will spend more but with one point two four percent it still falls behind the target. berlin can't count on any backing from the nato general secretary even thanked him for the pressure from washington. we all agree that we do not have fair burden sharing in our lines today we all agree it but we need more cash in national defense budgets at this point charm offensive appear to leave trump cold his main message is friendships hold up badly when money's involved. oh i'm joined now by the w.'s teri schultz at nato headquarters in brussels good evening to you terry you know you have covered nato for many years you've seen many of these summits i dare say you've never seen a summit with a u.s. president going from cold to hot back to cold all then one day tell us from where
you are standing what did you see and hear today. well you're right the breakfast was quite a shocking way to start the day this was due to be just a simple photo op in fact i understand that it was the u.s. side who said there wouldn't be any remarks but you can never never guarantee that with with president trump and so nobody expected him to just to hold forth against against germany and to be so so specific in saying that you know germany's. deal is is unfair because then the u.s. is paying for it for german defense now this is something that nato has been very careful to try to keep separate they never want trade issues energy issues anything else to compromise security issues and they've done a pretty good job so far but after today that's all over. of nordstrom he said that germany is captive of russia because of the stream pipeline the
pipeline delivers natural gas from russia to germany via the baltic sea there are other members of nato that do not want the pipeline but. the pipeline has ever been a divisive issue inside would you say it's in the interest of the u.s. and nato for trump to attack the pipeline now. that that's a lot of questions there are also other members of nato who will also benefit from this pipeline and we should point out it's not operational yet it's still not construction phase so and president trumps figures were wrong germany does not get seventy percent of the tender g. from russia so i haven't seen quite enough fact checking on that again this is not an issue that comes up officially at nato because they try to keep issues separate from security but of course with twenty two of the nato members also european union members where energy is an official issue it's discussed on the sidelines and i
hear that you know it does come up but it is not come up as an official agenda item at nato and own. he's got to remember that was with president trump you've got to look at business interests and the u.s. would very much like to export more l.n.g. liquefied natural gas to europe and it has started doing so so this could be you know something where president trump is would like to make a quid pro quo with germany buying more l.n.g. from the u.s. instead of from russia we just don't know exactly what was behind these remarks today because it was a surprise there were also attacks on all members of nato for not spending enough money on their own defense but members of nato they are increasing their defense spending and they have until two thousand and twenty four to reach the goals that were agreed upon so why does the u.s. president then continue to hammer this point. actually the twenty twenty four goal is not a deadline what their will's language said was that all allies would aim to move
toward the two percent guideline now think how weak that language is aim to move towards that means that any spending increase basically qualifies under this under this guideline and that's what germany says to defend itself is we didn't promise to be at two percent by two thousand and twenty four and we won't be germany actually doesn't commit to ever spend two percent of its g.d.p. on defense so determine he says that the one point five percent it will reach by then is still in the right direction and that will be an eighty percent increase overall in german defense spending so they justify that by saying hey we're moving in the right direction which is all we committed to do in that wales language it still isn't enough for the united states who spends about three point five percent of its g.d.p. on defense so you can see why they feel that things are unfair and nato itself says the defense sharing is unfair at the moment and that they will try to rectify that and the increase in defense spending that all twenty nine allies are are making will go a long way toward making that more fair it won't be even but the united states is
always going to spend more on defense than european countries and the important point to make and i think it's also a point that the members of congress realize it is fair to say that no one was surprised that mr trump unloaded at the summit today particularly members of congress in fact while mr trump was flying from washington to brussels the u.s. senate voted on a motion in support of nato and senator jack reed introduced that motion and he said of the senate floor unfortunately this motion has become necessary because some of our closest allies have come to question the u.s. commitment to collective self-defense president trump has at times called the alliance obsolete our allies are starting to wonder whether they can rely on the united states to come to their defense in a crisis. now the subtext here is pay up or we will not guarantee your security is that
a credible threat there at nato headquarters terry do people really think that whatever happened. they have good reason to be worried about that because president trump has implied that on more than one occasion including just last week at a campaign rally in montana where he spoke about chancellor merkel by her first name he said i told that i couldn't guarantee it meaning the protection of germany he has said more than once that perhaps the u.s. would only come to the defense of those countries that spend two percent of their g.d.p. which wouldn't be a very big group so yes i think nato allies are wondering this because he said that and that's a really a red line that nato article five is the bedrock of nato it's the it is the founding principle of the alliance all for one and one for all and that's a very very dangerous line for president trump to be crossing i want you to take a listen to what germany's foreign minister said today in response to trump's claim that russia controls germany because it's not
a prison is neither of russia nor the u. wiki's one of the garron tools of the free world and it'll stay that way. you know it's interesting he said we're not captive of russia and we're not captive of the united states will leave this summit less of an ally to nato and more of a friend to russia what do you think. nato secretary-general stoltenberg has said that his his main priority is to keep the alliance together and so if you ask anybody here at nato that is their core task to twenty nine allies standing together ready to defend each other but i think that you know you've also got to remember that there are there are countries inside nato who appreciate what president trump has done he has pushed other has pushed countries to spend more and that's something that nato itself wanted it's something that the countries who do spend two percent would like to see their counterparts do so it's not everyone who
doesn't like what president trump is saying i think that the two percent issue has sort of been like letting the genie out of a bottle though it was useful for a while it was useful for nato to have the united states you know harping on about this over and over now it's just gotten too big and it's creating it's creating division between allies but you know there are some countries that think that a president from perth you know performed a useful task in making this such an obsession for for a long time now. i think that by the end of tomorrow if he hasn't revoked the communique like he did at the g seven meeting nato will still be breathing a sigh of relief and say that all of these things that they agreed are a success they wish president trump would say also that the increase in allies defense spending is a success and take that home instead of continuing to battle on about it you know what you say the next twenty four hours will be just as crucial as the past twenty four hours to results force data headquarters tonight in brussels terry thank you.
a court in the german city of munich today convicted a member of a neo nazi terrorist cell for murder beata chief has been sentenced to life in prison for her role in the murder of ten people she belong to a group calling itself the national socialist underground now over a decade the group carried out racially motivated murders two bombings and a series of robberies. guilty of ten counts of murder the at a tip and the only survivor of the neo nazi murder cell will spend the rest of her life behind bars it was the maximum sentence but little consolation for the victims' relatives. to once a month to ask them to clear all the evidence against and in favor of the defendant was considered but the trial didn't address the suffering of the victims' families a trial that they want considered in anyway so in practice it's just the same we
have no trust in the system anymore unfortunately one of the biggest questions throughout the trial was whether be at a chapel was in a cock around role and never pulled the trigger during the trial to maintain she knew nothing about the murders even though she had lived with the two men for fourteen years kept as lawyers plan to appeal the verdict project it will be here as chip was convicted as a stand in for something she neither wanted nor did the state has to deal with the fact that the real perpetrators of these horrific crimes cannot be punished anymore . after five years the trial has finally come to an end but many questions remain unanswered were there unknown accomplices what role did the intelligence services play and how did the police fail to properly investigate the case as a school it's good that there is a clear and unequivocal verdict today what's also very clear is that today's verdict should not put an end to the discussion and it should not put an end to the
debate surrounding a resolution to. be inside four other men were convicted of being and as you accomplices one of them has already completed his sentence and he walked out of court a free man relatives of the victims suspect there were other people who knew about the crimes and facilitated them they demand the investigator stay on the case until they have answered all their questions. or they don't he is the only conrad joins me now she has been following this story. i mean are we talking about this verdict bringing closure has a has you know a wind been drawn under this case no it certainly hasn't i mean i talked to a lawyer who's involved in the case and she said her clients were shocked they were outraged because they feel that their concerns what represented they say that this child focused too much on chef it didn't focus on the other complicit is there's a lot of talk about who may be helped facilitate this i mean we're talking about a group that murdered ten people that operated for seven years it's clear that
there must have been other accomplices but they were only male a footnote in this case what was it developed this case that shocked germany so much i mean murder and you know to murders or ten terrible things but there was more than that right there was this initially the police called these the donor kebab as there was a lot of talk of this being migrant on migrant violence some people pointed to the turkish maffia so even though there was some clues that this was probably racist motivated to hate crime or even worse as it turned out to be as terrible case investigators took until two thousand and eleven to connect the dots so that's where a lot of the outrage a lot of the focus is really a decade for the police to you know piece together everything had there been any political ramifications from what has come to light. not really i mean we've had
thirteen parliamentary inquiries there's a bit lot of been a lot of political debate but if you look at germany today i mean the. immigrant if d. is doing very well they then polman that's definitely been a lot of debate but if you talk to victims if you talk to them they say nothing much has changed and there's so many open questions that haven't been oncet i mean there's a question of what did state institutions know what did the state intelligent. this is now has been a couple of cases were filed it was destroyed so there are a lot of open questions there's a lot of anger and it's quite likely that investigations will continue one lawyer has already filed another suit so i think this isn't over get this hasn't been closed for about thirty seconds beyond me she's going to prison for life can we say then that justice was served today well in her case maybe but the other cases. are
right and we congress as always thank you very much. well the world cup final in russia will be a battle on the pitch between france and croatia croatia beat england tonight in moscow to seal their ticket to the biggest game in football jonathan crane is here from hours towards just i think he is they said man this will put the first seconds out of the talk us through this game it was a good game it was a good game and yes i am a bit of a man's ok both countries had succeeded expectations of this tournament both have thought child hearts going into the semifinal match but only one could be a history maker it was croatia through to the final for the first time in their history this is a match that everton flirting with had the best of the fest off croatia that had the best of the the match and the rest of the match let's take a look at some of the highlights. england put croatia under pressure from the get go forcing a foul on delhi alley and giving england their first chance on goal kiran chippy
a with a perfectly timed free kick one nil for the three lions in the fifteen minutes i took croatian to the sixty eight to break in his defense even parazit far more determined to get the ball than carl walcott one all i and despite multiple chances there were no more goals in the regular ninety minutes the game heading into extra time. in the one hundred ninety minutes my man you catch with a decided i score a pair search term provider and you wouldn't pick foot in the england goal was without a chance. this young three lions team's dream dashed in the most painful way while croatia celebrate reaching that first world cup final. just what do you make of the performance of both teams as i said i think england started the match. so
confident belying their young age really this is one of the youngest squads in world cup i talk about look i'm outraged before the game how they can actually contain him and they really did they put him in a box in the first half they found space between the price and to france and midfield and obviously a dream start scoring a goal after any for five minutes and trippier that with that free kick and they really could have had a few more in the best often arguably put the game to bed but then croatia took control of the game after halftime england looked a bit more ragged croatia took advantage heritage with the oh i say went to extra time and then this is the one that really has broken hearts they kind of went to sleep a bit at the batsman's you kits that fired the ball and ironically jordan pickford had made a brilliant say for man city case just before that moment didn't really count for anything that croatia coming out the wrong way as they had to. compared to england's eleven so you have to say on balance they really need to have their place
in the final on sunday after the match i spoke to our sports correspondent over moody who was thinking in moscow and he told us about the atmosphere in the state for a lot of the game it was the english fans making most of the noise throughout the toff they really get that seems and great support through the full repertoire of songs but as you can imagine i was gracious grew back into the guy so there is also i managed to get up for the occasion and by extra time you could see that i could tell the way the game was going and they started and i got a lot more noise as well a really good atmosphere in the stadium which is good because i think the seventy five i was out last night was perhaps a little bit lacking on not one of you so it's good to see that we can still get these electric on this phase that even out the hosts are out and was all over moving there in moscow england really did come so close disappointed should they be actually at the very just appointed when they wake up tomorrow morning they can wish to be proud of what they achieved they did come so close i mean let's just
give croatia some credit as well three times in the knockout stages they went behind and then came back four for games which time and won but really if england been critical of themselves it should have called off all the game could have put to bed long before that. four years ago england didn't even get out the group stage of the world cup as i said this is a very young team for years later they've exceeded expectations no one would have predicted them really getting to the semifinals they can be very proud of that of gains so much from this experience and the fans as well they stayed behind at the end of the guy singing. very fitting. as a promising future for this england side. back to croatia a historic day for team for that country to have what it takes to beat france well in a fine oh a one off match anything is possible they have the quality they have the experience i do think if they start the match as badly as they started this one against
england they will be punished because france of a very strong side they've got better and better with every match they played in this tournament and worryingly after that win against belgium yesterday. said that she got an extra day because they play very well against house and they contain about since they didn't maybe take their chances as well on the counter-attack it's going to be a fantastic final i think i do think rain is always thank you very much when the day is nearly done as ever the conversation continues online you'll find us on twitter either at u.w. news or you can write to me to forgive to use that hashtag the day we're going to leave you now with images of croatian fans celebrating their historic qualification for a world cup final and remember whatever happens between now and the tomorrow is another day we'll see the.
