12:07 pm
here in germany the government has started the bidding for who will build germany's next generation mobile phone network telecoms companies are being invited to bid for radio frequencies to operate ultra fast five g. mobile networks as you may know five g. is the technology that for example would make autonomous driving possible on a wide scale the bettors for this lees licenses are so far deutsche telekom britain's vodafone and spain's telephony co as well as a german newcomer united internet its brand called one and one has no network but so in other parts of the world five g. has already taken off in the asia pacific region there are forecast to be around one hundred twenty million five g. subscriptions by twenty twenty one network supplier ericsson expects north america to be second place with forty eight million subscriptions by then followed by europe with twenty two million latin america will start off with just three million
12:08 pm
subscriptions and africa in the middle east with two million. it's well here in europe a controversy is a company in the build out of the five g. network almost every major telecom carrier says they need equipment from china is why the way to control costs and meet deadlines but the u.s. has been pressuring its allies to prohibit hallways components here's why. remote brain surgery in china the patient was in the beijing hospital the neurosurgeon three thousand kilometers away in the southern island province of high none of the live images and medical data were transmitted by an ultra fast five g. wireless network with video conferencing and other technology from quad way this is just the latest example of the game changing use of new super fast five g. networks europe also wants to use the technology but a space in a problem part ways one of the main producers of five g.
12:09 pm
hardware but the company is said to be too close to the chinese government apart from unconfirmed allegations of espionage there are concerns that follow a technology could pose a security risk if it were used in sensitive infrastructure in europe was this have to recognize that china is also pursuing its strategic interests through economic policies are for me so we mustn't be naive when it comes to important infrastructure projects like the awarding of license or is for good it sounds. complicating the move to next generation mobile standards is pressure from the us not to use while away hardware china's foreign minister y. e meeting in brussels with ease counterparts of cold security warnings groundless and politically motivated and suggested they were designed to discredit huawei. it's up to now wireless network operators in the e.u. could decide themselves whose technology that is but in some countries in the block the debate is growing about how to restrict the use of equipment from non european
12:10 pm
companies that could pose a risk to critical infrastructure and that could affect huawei. our business correspondent paul courson blitzes standing by in mines here in germany where the auction for the five g. is taking place paul how soon could five g. technology be a reality for german consumers. well the super fast internet unfortunately isn't going to come ass super fast as we'd like it. for twenty twenty two the operators that are now bidding for the frequencies are required to have ninety eight percent of german households covered so that's that's a long while until and even then they're going to be focusing more on the industry and industrial use cases which are likely to bring them more money also it's not going to happen just you know with someone turning the switch and then it's there
12:11 pm
there has to be a lot of infrastructure built and that's going to come incrementally incrementally but when it's finally there as you say industry consumers everybody trying to want five g. how profitable could it be for the networks. well that depends and it depends in part on what is going to happen today and possibly the next few weeks when this auction happens and how much money operators are actually going to spend on it in two thousand we had a network frequencies auctioned off and. they made fifty a billion but then companies ran out of money to build the infrastructure and now we're looking at three to five billion probably with companies having become more conservative also the big question is how much money is it really going to cost to build that infrastructure to build these cell towers a lot of cell towers have to be built and it's still unclear what kind of can technology can be used can operate is use while way technology or can they not for
12:12 pm
example. focus on a bit there in mines germany thank you so much. syria now and with the very last fighters of the so-called islamic state under siege their future and that of their families remains uncertain many of the children are traumatized and many have received military training in an oscar nominated documentary called of fathers and sons syrian filmmaker tal dedicate reveals just how problematic it may turn out to be to read ability the children of jihadi fighters. feels just how problematic it may turn out to be to read ability the children of jihadi fighters. this is the training camp for children that to be unshockable.
12:13 pm
to face death without showing any signs of weakness to become hardened minutes from a young age. well some i was sent here by his father that hardest himself. these images were filmed in northern syria not far from the border with turkey. the camp was run by the terrorist group. a group inspired by al qaeda the syrian filmmaker tuttle day came to the region to shoot the documentary of fathers and sons he spent over two years living with us summer and his family gradually gaining their trust by britain doing to sympathize with their course this gave an insight into the process that turns innocent children into jihad is fighters i want to understand how. you become what you are who are those people from the inside what is the courts what is the thing they can
12:14 pm
to bring more to the people. in some ways the family appears quite normal the children are boarded up in an environment where there is love and care but also radical religious education assignments father has been a member of the terrorist group for two decades he trains his sons to follow in his footsteps from their earliest years the intimacy of family life and the horrors of war are never far apart. the children's play time is dominated by themes of war or violence one game involves playing with a makeshift bone with even the youngest children involved. one day the boys catch it and kill it.
12:15 pm
the father. from the moment his son is born. and that's mean that the kids in all his life he don't have a choice. in the many other radicalized children and young men in syria have known little else in their lives but violence and war forced to leave their families to fight in jihad they now face an uncertain future. well for exit with just ten days to go before britain is due to pull out of the european union there's a new crisis in london the speaker of the house of commons has announced that a third vote on prime minister teresa mayes breaks that deal will not take place because it breaks the rules only a deal that differs substantially from the previous versions can be voted on in the british parliament he says well the speaker's ruling is based on a long standing convention but it took both the government and lawmakers by
12:16 pm
surprise with yet more confusion over brags that we asked berliners how they thought the e.u. should handle it. you should be tough because i think in england the punch and judy show is taking place on the other hand there is a good side to this because those who are against the e.u. are now seeing want to happen it acts as a deterrent if. you don't have. stick to hard deadlines just because they're there you have to see what's best for the e.u. . and the best option would be to consider how you can help a country that maybe should come back to the e.u. . postponing bret's it helps they should postpone. the cinema so you don't make a point of being tough and not make it easy for the u.k. i mean. i prefer the idea of pushing ahead diplomatically by negotiation that way there's the possibility of
12:17 pm
a positive outcome if you haven't found the right solution yet then you can't leave the you you have to sit down and find a solution to force a decision just because the deadline is now i don't like that. i think we should act in a consideration so we can persuade the british to rethink and unite the european union again after all it's not good for either side if we split. on another one. of the very latest now from our correspondent in london farragut the speaker of the u.k. parliament has blocked a third vote on a briggs that deal just days away from the deadline for leaving what does this mean for prime minister teresa mayes plans. well the reason may is just in the process of figuring out whether there is some way that she could yet get her deal back on the table maybe by changing the wording so i think the government is really just as we speak in the process of trying to figure out what
12:18 pm
they do the most likely scenario would be that they go to the e.u. summit this week in brussels ask for an extension of the of the brics it date and that gives them more time but the default option is that brags a day is still on the twenty ninth of march and that's at the end of next week the e.u. is clearly losing its patience with britain breaks it brussels wants london to finally put a concrete proposal of some kind on the table is that likely to happen in the short amount of time. the question is when will this happen so if tourism a really does get an extension from brussels and that's not guaranteed at all she would then buy more time and parliamentarians here hope that in that time they will be able to somehow shape the bricks and process those on the remains site hoping that a soft of bricks it is sort of consensus could be you could reach and parliament
12:19 pm
for either so if the breaks it or to put it back to the people for referendum know those who want out of the european union after speaking to somebody who's on the really conservative. side of things he said he also wants a longer extension in order to then get a new prime minister who would be in his point of view should be a brick city who would be playing tough with the e.u. on a negotiating a better deal is what he hopes and so we have two opposing views here but the extension seems the most likely option at this point in time the french europe minister because you sure you heard said today that there if there is no decision forthcoming from the u.k. on the deal that so on the table it will be a no brigs a deal a new deal breaks it on march twenty ninth is that where this is heading. well
12:20 pm
the u.s. a time in the again that the u.k. must have proposals at a mosque of negotiating just with itself and basically put something on the table in brussels we have to take i think everything that comes out of brussels at this point at this crunch time also with a pinch of salt of course brussels would like to get this over the table they don't really want to start reopening their withdrawal even start older negotiations again so there might be the hope that they could somehow put pressure on palm and to in the end go and unite behind series a maze deal that would in from their position probably be the easiest option but it's only over a week's time so really not much for parliamentarians to get their act together and decide on what they really want to do. to get thank you very much steve in london.
12:21 pm
here in berlin the german chancellor angela merkel has reiterated her commitment to multi-lateralism she was speaking at the global solutions summit that's being held repair policy recommendations for the g. twenty summit in japan in june here's part of what chancellor merkel had to say that to me is the key to the because not every compromise is acceptable but i'm complements so up in a compromise as i view it the pros need to outweigh the cons but it never will be totally satisfactory for just one party. everybody will be missing something but as a home it will be a better result than all of the individual interests put together to give. me what's go down live to our chief political correspondent chief political editor mechanic who has been following that speech for us another call for more international cooperation from the german chancellor is mrs merkel zz boyce
12:22 pm
a voice in the wilderness. well it isn't quite i mean she's come here every day to preach to the converse of this global solutions summit where most people confessing multilateralist but of course she once again named u.s. president donald trump without in fact naming him and she was of course also on the whole breakfast issue because that is the exact opposite of multilateralism with the e.u. of course being a multilateral list of projects and there she said that she would fight until the very last hour to keep this brecht's that process on track essentially to prevent an uncontrolled break said but she didn't really see yourself in a position to predict what would be discussed at that e.u. summit coming up later in the week that everybody in the e.u. is waiting want to reset may well put on the table so there's a bit of multilateralism going off the rails here in europe at the same time
