a contentious conference where german chancellor angela merkel and mike pence also advanced opposing visions on iran and the direction of their nation's foreign policy put it past today more for iran's foreign minister mohammad shot sorry for sharply criticize the u.s. and dismissed vice president mike pence this recent demand that the e.u. withdraw from the nuclear treaty with iran under mr pence repeated this course when he and again we demanded that europe must join the united states in undermining its own security and breaking its top because. by german foreign minister who assured his iranian counterpart in direct talks in munich that germany and the you want to stick to the agreement as long as you are around us the e.u. wants to enable trade with iran but serif suggests that europe has to do more.
with europe. needs to be ridding to get rid. if it wants to swim against the dangerous part of the u.s. unit after this i your opinion leaders are already feeling the pressure from the u.s. and mike pence of the n.t. during the security conference. the time has come for our european partners to stop undermining u.s. sanctions against this murderous revolutionary regime. chancellor mackler refused to withdraw from the treaty germany feels that it is the only way to money iran's nuclear program has invaded it was like oh my do we help our common cause our common aim of containing the damaging or difficult influences of iran by withdrawing from the one remaining agreement. or die or do we help it more by keeping the small anchor we have in order to maybe exert pressure in other areas.
and welcome the european commitment but called for more action he added that the nuclear treaty is appropriate at the best that can be achieved how much longer. we spoke a short time ago to ian bremmer he's president and founder of the eurasia group and we asked him about the fallout of the widening rift between the european union and the united states. the fallout is that the europeans are increasingly acting in a transactional way that if they want to work with the americans want to work with them they're going to have to get something in return if they don't then they don't so i mean it's not the trust the common values the common strategy that of course was present when the transatlantic relationship came together after world war two is really gone now and i think that what you see on display at this munich security council is a feeling of human failure both collectively in being able to respond to global challenges like climate and cyber and unwinding geopolitical order but also
a very deep fragmentation of the transatlantic order you mentioned iran and russia are clearly the i.n.f. treaty clearly u.s. withdrawal from syria from afghanistan trade issues i mean pretty much everything that vice president pence was talking about and go america was talking about there was no overlap between those two speeches that's quite something and it's unprecedented here at the going to security conference. that was ian bremmer president and founder of the eurasia group speaking to you a short time ago it's now u.s. president donald trump has threatened to release captured fighters from the so-called islam and state if europe does not take them in this comes after trump's shock december announcement that the militant group had been defeated and that u.s. troops would be withdrawn from syria in a tweet called on britain france germany and others to quote take back over eight hundred isis fighters that we captured in syria and put them on trial he said the
alternative is quote not a good one and that we would be forced to release them. pope francis has expelled former u.s. cardinal theodore mccarrick from the priesthood came after vatican officials found him guilty of sexual abuse against adults and minors now kerik is the highest ranking catholic cleric to receive the sanction in modern times now but it was made just days before the pope ursa host a church summit on preventing child abuse the punishment handed down to this american cleric is unprecedented the former archbishop of washington theodore mccarrick soliciting sex from aspiring priests and abused at least two minors between one nine hundred seventy and one nine hundred ninety. he had already been stripped of his status as a cardinal last july in itself a bombshell for the church for the bad haagen caught the vatican you say the move
is a good thing. is quite clear in this regard the problem in the past was that it wasn't applied the issue was covered up people look the other way now it simply gone through official channels with a very prominent figure it's not a papal decision but it really should be. the. last summer pope francis ordered an investigation into mccarrick the vatican reached its verdict on january eleventh mccarrick some pills were rejected beginning this thursday leaders of bishops conferences from around the world will meet with pope francis for four days in rome on the agenda abuse in the catholic church and how to protect children critics accuse the pope of doing too little too late in dealing with allegations of abuse victims of charge the battery can with not paying enough attention to their claim. now to some of the other stories making news around the world in serbia thousands turned out for anti-government protests across the country crowds in the capital
