this is news wire from turning over a new leaf turkey's president says he wants to reset his country's strained relations with germany speaking ahead of us think visit russia tired very long calls for a new start between ankara and berlin but what are his motives and will he succeed also coming up. european football's governing body wafer prepares to announce the
host of the euro twenty twenty four tournaments it is a choice between germany and turkey look at the up sides on the downside of each country's best. and high drama expected in the u.s. senate today as supreme court nominee brett kavanaugh prepares to respond to allegations that he sexually assaulted a woman as a teenager his accuser professor christine blasi ford says the alleged attack changed her life. thanks so much for being with us and welcome i'm brian thomas turkey's president much of type very long is starting a visit to germany today now ties between these two countries are strained over a number of human rights issues especially opposed to crackdown the lead to tens of thousands of arrests but now everyone says he wants a new start ahead of his arrival. security throughout the city is that
a rare level one that's usually reserved for the american president or the prime minister of israel large parts of berlin city center completely closed off during the three day state visit protests are planned here in berlin five thousand police officers will be out on the streets over the coming days. our chief political editor michelle acuff there is covering this for us joins us now from our parliamentary studio good morning michelle why are we seeing the highest possible level of security in berlin today. well the bottom line is that there must be a security assessment based on the fact that the turkish president takes the conflicts of his presidency that come with this increased tendency towards a moth or terry involved with him wherever he goes and that ranges from human rights groups that want to demonstrate against him for those address this arbitrary arrests of journalists but also many civil servants but also towards the conflict
the ongoing conflict that flared up once again in the kurdish region with the p.k. k. so a lot of contentious issues on the table not to mention even took his involvement in syria and that's why security is so high here ok none of these contentious issues have been resolved to date and everyone says he's now looking for a new page with germany what is he specifically looking for on this visit. well he once he needs economic support from germany turkey is dependent on billions coming out of brussels particularly also funding for those one point three million migrants and refugees that are currently in turkey many of them from syria there were times when the german chance that absolutely needed a president added one to keep that migration crisis at bay but with the turkish lira having lost forty percent of its value since the beginning of this year there
is no eye level that he's calling for in a in an article in a major newspaper today right now and he wants to get some kind of support out of germany from the german chancellor and from german industry but just that but they do have a history so let's just have a quick look at. this handshake is nothing more than a photo op to politicians who are unlikely to become friends turkish president heir to one loves pomp and circumstance and he's considered quick tempered. america on the other hand is said to be a serious humble politician who loves harmony. it's a relationship that's certainly not based on great personal friendship but more on the knowledge that the political relations of the two countries are very important and must be maintained it's certainly not a marriage of love. and in the spring of two thousand and seventeen relations were
at a low point the german government refused to allow air to one's party to hold election campaign events in germany the furious turkish president responded by playing the nazi card. right now and you. are using nazi methods. against my turkish brothers and sisters who live in germany i'm against all ministers and deputies who travel with. america was calm and objective in her response for you to do with these comparisons between the federal republic of germany and national socialism must cease they are unworthy of the close ties and relations we've built up between the people of germany and turkey politically as nato partners socially and economically the chancellor is also concerned about the human rights situation in turkey tens of thousands of heir to one critics have been imprisoned including german journalists friends relatives and
the german government are campaigning for their release. but ere the one is gradually transforming back into a serious partner his country is in the midst of an economic crisis urgently needs german aid and is increasingly isolated because of its foreign policy so turkey is now signaling a willingness to compromise with germany. they are moving closer together after last year's flare up and the more difficult years proceeding that but their relationship will nevertheless remain strained because the issues that lead up to the separation and that is above all domestic policy in turkey won't change very quickly. and yet both germany and turkey know that this is far more than a marriage of convenience. so michelle where is this very strained and troubled german turkish relationship. well that's the big question i mean clearly one wants economic support we already heard the foreign minister to today that disarming the
rhetoric toning it down is simply not going to be enough to put these this relationship on a good footing again but both sides no doubt need each other i'm going to machall needs. to maintain that migration deal also it's a very important part now when it comes to energy security at the same time. in the lead up to the general elections just a year ago called on turks or germans of turkish descent not to vote under the mouthfuls party in fact not any of the major parties so he directly tries to get involved with elections here there's great nervousness that you might want to make political statements here so it would be very interesting to see what concrete outcome will come out of this both sides need each other but they clearly don't like each other right now ok and we'll see what this leads to over the coming days
with michelle and the rest of the political team here in berlin thanks very much. strictly by coincidence everyone is coming to berlin on the very same day that europe's football governing body you wait for decides if his country turkey or germany will be hosting the twenty twenty four european championships germany are favorites to come out on top but football mad turkey is desperate to host in two thousand and twenty four having made failed bids for the last three tournaments. euro twenty twenty four is set to be a footballing spectacle twenty four countries competing in a total of fifty one games but who will host the prestigious event germany are regarded as frontrunners you wafers evaluation committee has already backed the bid the german football association see this as a chance to follow up on the success of the two thousand and six world cup and they're clear on the benefits of their bid. we have the stadia the infrastructure
the accommodation we also have great fan zones we're basically ready to host the euros tomorrow. but as shadow looms over germany's bid the message is ill a fact the arsenal midfielder is meeting with turkish president richard tired after one caused an uproar that eventually ended in little retiring from the germany national scene he accused the german football association of racism and discrimination. could that be an advantage for turkey the country is confident its big can stand on its own turkey's footballing culture its modern stadia and even president add to one's passion for the game positives after three unsuccessful bids this one is meant to click. around everyone can see we're ready to host the erase we love football we deserve to be the host of . football's been played in turkey for over one hundred years it's part of our
lives here. but financial instability and the drop of the lira could put turkey's bid and potential profits in jeopardy. europe's governing body has sent out mixed signals they have set clear requirements including on matters such as human rights and freedom of expression on the other hand you a for expects huge tax breaks from the hosts. its executive committee is made up of twenty members. the german and turkish representatives can vote. one member netherlands prague has publicly thrown his support behind turkey. in case of a stalemate you wait for president alexandre shuttering will break the tie something he will lean towards germany as it stands it's all up in the the only certainty the bid for euro two thousand and twenty four is going to be
a close race. well just how close the talk about that cross harrington from the abuse sport is here to fill us and good morning press this morning you know when we look at the euros we are taking a look at one of the biggest sporting events on the planet how many people do we have an idea if you want to look at the most recent eurostar the mid twenty's sixteen five billion viewers six hundred million tuned in for the final between portugal in france alone so when you factor in we have a little more time more people will get mobile phones i think those numbers will increase this this upcoming tournaments you know i don't see why it would need twenty twenty four so more than more than five billion yeah i think that's. a germany or according to according to the report we just saw there that you a few valuation has the edge right now why why does it have this edge well you know they were called for a snow creative they had a professional vision and then you have to look at the recent history you know
there were tournaments and they were highly profitable tournaments not to mention and that was something that alexander separate the president of u.a.e. who has the deciding vote said is paramount you know the money return is very important in a tournament like this so germany you know across his board definitely is going to be the favorite ok there's more stadiums here for stadiums here more than three hundred thousand can actually fit in go to games here opposed to turkey and then when you look at turkey they do have some renovating to do they do have some innovative to do as well in their major stadium they won big state and they do have so germany's been touting its infrastructure as well getting the people around during the course of those additional us. stadium's your turkey though has been rejected three times just if you look just at that simply based on that shouldn't it be given the tournaments around each basin of always the bridesmaid never the bride argument now i think you know you have to factor in that that turkey has not held and hosted a major tournament like this they were awarded a consolation not the first time but the u.a.e.
for a champions league final they will be able to host you know so that is something but i did mention the if a structure you know they have one stadium the to chirk olympic stadium needs to be rebuilt after it hosts that major tournament and then also another factor in the decision making process is going to be the human rights issues as we heard in the report so this is obviously a strike against turkey as well ok so you a fas considering the crackdown and what's happened there in in its calculation in the calculus of for the first time in the history of the deciding process this is a new factor for us aren't there speaking with me earlier now for some of the other stories making the news at this hour a british online investigative group says a russian man accused of poisoning a former russian spy and his daughter in salisbury britain is a military officer who received an honor from president putin in twenty fourteen the website belling katz says the suspect whose passport name was bashar off is in fact colonel and holy. a russian member of the anti

a high school is accused of professor christine blasi forward as the alleged attack took place at a party in one thousand nine hundred two president trump has been defending kavanaugh but also says that stand could change based on the testimonies later today it is here that judge kavanaugh will come face to face with christine bleakley forward he was the first to accuse him of sexual misconduct she will step up to the microphone the day after the third women went public with fresh allegations which also date back to the one nine hundred eighty s. julie st nick claims to have witnessed kavanah consistently engage in inappropriate sexual contact during high school trumps pick for the supreme court has described the latest claims as ridiculous and total twilight zone cabinets lawyers released calendars of his from the summer of one thousand nine hundred eighty two to the committee as part of their defense. in a lengthy question and answer session president trump was pressed by reporters to
see if he would consider withdrawing cavernous nomination that. the republican senators have delayed this for weeks now they giving the women a major chance to speak now it's possible i'll hear that and i'll say hey i'm changing my mind that is possible but they're going to have a big shot at speaking to making their case and you know what i could be persuaded also. trump described senate democrats calling for cap and not to be withdrawn as obstructionists taking part in what he called a con job to brass something their group leader in the senate strenuously deny. this isn't a democratic smear job as the leader so callously and disrespectfully suggest that this is a republican rush job and i might add a rush job to avoid getting to the truth to
regarding the extraordinary hearing the president trumps and i think it's going to be a very very important day in the history of our country and i want to thank you all sir to young men you served there to young men young to thank you very much nothing to say no more to say for now i christine bleakley ford will be first to give her testimony followed by brick kavanah soon after. we have a sports town the bundesliga wrapped up its midweek slate of matches with parisienne dortmund looking to jump from force to second place in the standings the host of nuremberg the didn't present much of a challenge. dortmund was in a festive mood and even coach lucianne far was all smiles and is expecting to extend its perfect home record against newly promoted nuremberg. and accordingly it took dortmund just nine minutes to open the scoring through the broom larson.
to meet flicks the first from provider christian the second to finish off the move and give dortmund an early lead. which marco royce should have doubled a minute later only to be denied by norm berg's fabienne brave low. but shortly after the half hour mark dortmund's captain made up for his wasted chance. to nail the well deserved lead coming through royce whose shot took a slight deflection through the onrushing georg mark reiter. in the second half the already one sided affair became even more humiliating for the visitors first truckie made it three after forty nine minutes the on loan player from real madrid scoring on his bundesliga debut. were playing cat and mouse with nuremberg markel royce with his second of the evening making it for now. by this
point the dortmund players were taking turns at trying to score against their hapless opposition manwell ican she make it five nil after seventy four minutes. and it wasn't over yet jaden sensual scoring the sixth of evening and he later turned provider for julieann vital to rounded off the scoring at seven dortmund's biggest bundesliga win in more than thirty years. now to a video that has gone absolutely viral here's the moment to seal slapped the kayaker in the face with the posts. out carl mullingar was addling off the coast of korra new zealand he said he could feel the full impact of the octopus on his face lesson learned never get between a seal and. you seem to have enjoyed it and it looks like i was having a good two two and
a half to a quarter percent druther the race is the third this year has been spurred on by stronger g.d.p. growth which hit four point two percent last year the fed has been slowing tightening its monetary policy over the last several years marking an end to its efforts to support the u.s. economy after the financial crisis the hike is a vote of confidence in the u.s. economy by fed policy bosses despite uncertainty on world markets and the trade conflict with china the fed also signaled there might be another race coming this year and up to three next year. and for more on that let's cross over now to paul chrystia but it's who's keeping an eye on the action at the front of stock exchange how what are the reactions there to the u.s. fed's decision. monika the rate hike now was widely expected by their guidance as of course what everyone looked at and we're getting
a very mixed reactions about that from economists everything from this is absurd there is no indication for higher inflation you should have time for the markets to adjust to there's really no alternative to this with this current job market everything from this to their own paul himself he said the possible outcomes of a trade conflict aren't in this decision it's too early to tell so let's see how it played out on the markets wall street indices closed down during the seas there. the s. and p. five hundred was up before the decision but then drops to minus zero point three similar with the talent in that stack european markets were closed but they opened slightly lower this morning with the foot sea and the dots in the negative and i apologise briefly what's the fed up to next then. all this by
donald trump's assertion that the fed doesn't seem to be up to any good if we put this in for into perspective three percent by next year that isn't really march comparing to before the financial crisis and what it does give the fed is an opportunity should the market which has been going up and up and up and actually come to more problems and crash it would give it a tool to sort of correct that and maybe ease the worries of investors where the european central bank for example doesn't have that tool because it's still this very very low interest rate indeed. from the front the stock exchange thank you so much. and as we had earlier turkish president wretch uptight adlon is in berlin political relations between germany and strained but with tech economy struggling uncorrupt cannot afford to spur old friends despite political tensions business ties between berlin and grow remain stable on many levels. think raced

current strange political relations sherman and turkish companies share many interests. well here in europe temperatures dropping after a scorching summer time led to her wrap up in your favorite woody garment spot what does a drought in australia have to do with the cost of fuel winter wardrobe quite a lot as it turns out. hungry lambs as a dried stricken farm in the eastern state of new south wales astray produces ninety percent of the world's merino wool exports. but after one of the driest seasons on record many sheep farmers are struggling to keep their flocks alive at the whereabouts. of. this form of the what we had last year so that's really awful so we've already fought for all
