12:13 pm
russian nuclear disarmament treaty sales nato secretary-general again stoltenberg urged russia to return to complying with the eye and ask treaty but said the body was also making plans for a world without the deal now this deal bans the development and possession of intermediate range nuclear missiles as the i.m.f. is under threat after washington announced its withdrawal from the agreement earlier this month accusing russia of violating the treaty. let's bring in dave use teri schultz she is at nato headquarters covering this media meeting for us hi terry good to see what steps could nato take if this treaty lapses what options will be discussed there. nato is is not saying yet that it is giving up on the i.n.f. treaty there's this six month waiting period and nato very much wants to preserve the treaty and so secretary-general stoltenberg is warning russia yet again it has this one last chance this one last window to come into compliance with the treaty
12:14 pm
and hope to see that before the u.s. declares the treaty no and void and so we've just learned that secretary general stolzenberg will meet russian foreign minister sergey lavrov at the munich security conference coming up this weekend and he will press again on russia to be willing to destroy this system that has breached the i.n.f. treaty beyond that nato says it's going to have to plan for a world without the eye enough terry what do we know about how the u.s. would respond to russian i enough violations in the future. the u.s. maintains that it has not breached the treaty and all allies agree with that that's really not within question so it hasn't started really looking at what kind of weapon systems it could create to counter the russian threat and what europeans have been most interested in hearing from the u.s. is what it won't do and that was something that was laid out very clearly in my interview with u.s. ambassador to nato keith bailey hutchison we don't intend to put something new in europe and most certainly we're not even even considering nuclear so i think we
12:15 pm
will bring our allies along with us tell them what we're looking at so that they will know what to expect but there's a defense for them as well as for us and it is a defense that is necessary for us to see the risks and assure that we can. protect and deter against the risks of russia's missiles. we heard her say there we don't intend to put something new in europe where does this leave europe. yes that's what the u.s. is trying to reassure allies now we are not looking at stationing. nuclear missile system to counter russia's on european territory nobody wants to see that at the moment they say that now that they will not be bound by the treaty they will look
12:16 pm
at all options there will though possibly be conventional weapons that will be discussed to put back on european territory and that's very much what some european allies want if you talk to the countries closest to the russian border they want a robust u.s. defense against the missiles that are pointed directly at them europe will be the battleground if there is if there is a a conflict a nuclear otherwise so i think what allies will be listening for when acting defense secretary patrick shanahan comes is again these reassurances that europe will not be a nuclear battleground and just what steps the u.s. is taking as we wait out this six months before the i.n.f. is truly declared dead kerry scholz covering the nato defense ministers meeting in brussels for us thank you terry. now it's an image that sent shock waves around the world the young girl running from napalm bombs dropped on her village in vietnam in one nine hundred seventy two the picture of kim on t.v. became one of the most famous war photos of all time she is now
12:17 pm
a peace activist and she's been awarded the dress and peace prize for her work and her message to the is going to cattle sat down with her. thank you is there to say that kumble to be the recipient of such a thing but distinguished a word. with so much meaning behind it can focus famous for being the subject of a photograph. a photograph of such work that it galvanized public opinion around the world about the war in vietnam and helped change the course of history. i own voice. oh boy totally to look my pitch you alone my mouth my i guess my body is the war's moment of human mean
12:18 pm
as a little girl i felt so embarrassed why i was make it and my brothers make has ng was close on. i just do it right there and i turned my hat and i saw fall bombs landing that that fire was everywhere and the fire actually bird my clothes off. i was nine you know and i remember i thought oh my goodness i got. so i would be out. and so people would see me a different way of course that moment that picture that day to end my life what i have. now i know i have

12:20 pm
now in the champions league round of sixteen is underway there were two matches last night the feature was a premier league side manchester united hosting france's paris entre ma pay p s three it was without superstars neymar and incent avani but they still outclassed their hosts after a scoreless first half the s.c. took the lead in the fifty third minute and just seven minutes later football sensation kilian and buckley made it to nil to add to manchester united's woes star pop pop i was sent off in the final minutes of the game and i single missed the return leg in paris next month. in tuesday's other champions league match roma edged out portuguese side porto thanks to nineteen year old nicolo zani olo while the teenage midfielder scored both goals for the italian side to seal a two one victory that ended porto's five game winning streak in the champions
12:21 pm
league. right there are three german clubs a left in the champions league and every one of them will face a team from england to starting tonight so the bundesliga is heading into a direct clash with the premier league and we have our debut sports team with us to talk about the saleman talkee and pasco thank you both for being with us a little let's start with you there are some big matches to look forward to what can we expect here germany and an england fan and there's a lot to get excited about tonight we have on top of him which at least on paper should sounds like a thriller and then next week of course we have entered the city take on childhood and perhaps the biggest. win. by and this is the first time at this stage of the competition where we have three german teams made three english teams it's never happened before and internationally a bit of
12:22 pm
a taste in terms of when it comes to germany england rivalry we know that it can get very very tense and that's mainly because you know on a national level there's a lot of pride on the line a cup devil it's a bit different than that because the cups represent the leaks so this you know the element of bragging rights involved in terms of which is the better league and it's safe to say that the premier league because they have the deep pockets that they have a slight advantage is it really all about the money well of course the premier league has run into the power it is most it happens comes to selling t.v. rights for example two billion euros revenue that's more than twice what the ones the governments but there's still there's a gap but money does not buy you success as you all know and when you have a look at the champs league same you find for example that's where you really want to be at as a successful club and in recent years you had more german collapse than english ones so i would say never underestimate the bundesliga teams and especially by munich yeah but that's also see this is where i have to kind of interrupt and say that's also one of the problems that by and munich are the only been to see the
12:23 pm
team that can contend for the champions league title on a year in year out basis teams like gautam and gave a coups and a just way to inconsistent and one of the reasons is because they do is allow. out of this stop play us yes to the premier league so is there a talent strain them oh yes that is so the seven of the ten most expensive bonus to get transfers went to the premier league so for example going to want to draw in a semi and obama young and it's not just pay us that are leaving but also coaches we had you can crop and pep guardiola also d. for the initially ok so pascal there are top players and coaches going to the premier league how does that affect the blend of sleep but of course the sad to see those stars leaving also the best coaches but it hasn't really affected the bundesliga so much because it's not only about stocks right the bonus they get as well known and praised for its atmosphere you have the german fans and fan choreography is that stadiums every weekend and you have to keep tickets fans have the biggest say in things how the club is run in germany and you have even fans
12:24 pm
from england flying over to germany to watch games and the bonus they get even in lower league so it's a different approach the bundesliga seems to be more accessible and even germany's second biggest cup or c. don't want which has to make money was have to make business favors the german model and we can have a look what the c.e.o. dalton c.e.o. has to say about that. kind of unusual to. i don't want an english system where the ticket prices are driven so high by investors. so high that an entire section of society can't afford to go to the games anymore because they're just not pretty. you know on my skin makes a good point i mean the cheapest ticket to watch. tottenham host stuart mint goes for about thirty four euros in the bundesliga for example one of the cheapest tickets that you could find go as low as fifteen euros for again and that often
12:25 pm
also includes the transportation costs so if we're speaking about an experience and it's a lot more family friendly that is definitely i agree with with my colleague that the bonus he got an experience family friendly yeah they went ok having looked at both leagues here what's your prediction for tonight asking both of you here dortmund against tottenham well i would say it's a really really tough game because they're missing some of the key players michael royce with been fantastic old season and pocket costs are their main goal scorer so i would go for maybe maybe a draw a narrow win for adult one to one for the dives well you know and also have injuries injury problems of their own zone but i'm still also going to go with fifty fifty aren't we have to see how this one turns out from the sports limited talkee and thank you both so much for your analysis. to south africa now which is one of the world's surfing hot spots but it's not just the professionals who want to ride some of the best waves the locals do to one
