7:06 pm
the spokesperson of his party it today denied these claims that there are some kind of negotiations going on between turkey and saudi arabia but of course all eyes on turkey tomorrow all eyes on this out on they are in the driver seat at the moment in the story you leon reporting from istanbul thank you. next we turn our attention to russia where the kremlin is calling on the united states to work together with moscow to fix problems with existing nuclear weapons treaties u.s. national security adviser john bolton is in the russian capital for what are expected to be tough talks after the trumpet ministration announced it would pull out of a cold war arms deal the treaty was seen as a major breakthrough in nuclear security when it was signed by soviet leader mikhail gorbachev and u.s. president ronald reagan back in one thousand nine hundred eighty seven it required the u.s. and the soviet union to give up all their nuclear and conventional ground launched
7:07 pm
missiles with ranges of five hundred to five thousand kilometers as a result of the i.n.f. treaty the u.s. and the soviet union destroyed almost three thousand short and medium range missiles on al president donald trump has accused moscow of violating the treaty russia's foreign minister sergei lavrov has warned of consequences. with disputed which the shits but if he were to be stupid or stood up against the actions that in fact the reaction. because stability can only be ensured when there is a heresy which is a hope so you still use your will to its there's a character you must be maintained under all the circumstances of this that the presence of so you do that it's just we are responsible for global stability i think that the us wondering now this sheriff that the responsibility even if they're going to play a little showing that more on the subject i'm now joined by alexander graf lamb
7:08 pm
star she's a member of the german bundestag and deputy leader of the opposition free a democrat certs good to have you were with us this evening does president trump's announcement worry you. yes of course particularly here in germany we are extremely worried by this announcement because it concerns a category of weapons that would reach europe not the continental united states it is a bilateral agreement between the united states and russia which europe's security which has greatly enhanced europe's security and i think it's very some not only to german supposed to poles to the french to the dutch to everybody here in europe but president trumps point he says that russia is violating the agreement is that how you see it as well well i find it slightly ironic to hear the russian foreign minister saying and i quote every action create its own reaction as
7:09 pm
a matter of fact since two thousand and fourteen we know that russia has deployed a system in myside s s c eight that violates the treaty that is in clear violation of the treaty with the reach of two thousand six hundred kilometers and so the united states action today is can be seen as a reaction to that violation of the treaty now our president the trump security advisor mr bolton john bolton is in moscow as we speak for talks are you encouraged by that is that a good sign. yes that i think that is very important and i hope that this trip and these announcements will be the beginning of a series of conversations about strategic arms about arms control rather than the end of a treaty that has served everybody rather well and therefore i believe that john bolton being in moscow and briefing the russian side on the intentions of his administration is a positive sign i believe however that we need briefings from him or other senior
7:10 pm
officials in the united states administration and nato as well which is why we are calling on the german government to ask for a special nato summit on arms control and the i.n.f. treaty and what with that special nato summit meeting accomplish well in that context the united states could explain what the strategy is behind their announcements because so far we have the announcement we cannot recognize a strategy what is the intention is there a change in the nuclear posture is there a pushback against russian hybrid warfare that is intended what exactly does washington in ten with that and we need unity in the west because it would require countries to accept missiles of that kind in europe and for the united states to have countries welcoming such systems on their soil it would be good to involve them early on still i hope that all of this can be avoided and we can keep the
7:11 pm
contract the treaty intact can this treaty be salvaged. i hope so i hope so because i think that it has served everybody well the russians are in breach and it is good that the americans react i criticize the german government for not having done so violating the treaty is even worse through withdrawing from authorities announcing that but i believe that the treaty can be salvaged if all sides are serious about it and if all sides share the intention of avoiding a really ruinous arms race alexander graf landstar thank you sir for joining us thank you and i'd like to bring up to speed now with some of the other stories making news around the world speak of let us remember that when britain's prime minister to resign may has told parliament that ninety five percent of the braggs it would draw agreement with the european union is now settled may said there might be circumstances in which
