4:00 pm
i'm symbolism here some unity something the e.u. wants to celebrate on this occasion and that is for instance international trade deals that is the eastern expansion i.e. the inclusion of eastern states into the european union which is now fifty years ago romania one of the countries that joined earth from the east and lots of e.u. money has ended up in romania it hasn't solved all the problems and so i looked at one of the places that is still a challenge in a state that struggles with corruption so despite he you money you still have a lot of poverty here i traveled half an hour outside of c.p.u. in central remaining into a roma settlement. cosman wants to get in here into this new house which looks so nice and clean because till now he and his five siblings have been living here in an old heart made from wooden sticks and clay this is one of the many roma settlements in romania always on the outside of
4:01 pm
the villages it's a small miracle that houses are being built here at all i'm going to cut them. i tried with the bank but they didn't give me a loan. my salary is too small. it's a lot of money i had no chance to do anything to that have and possibility that this have. instead the money for the building materials comes from jenin question the founder of a german aid project now now how. she has been helping these roma communities around seaview for more than ten years about one in three rumanians lives in poverty and the roma are the poorest of all. almost almost you have to be able to dream of that but leave room for small miracles because that's how it all happened i didn't want to accept things as they were here. every time in the outfit. older men have to help with the building work
4:02 pm
because jenny believes in learning to help yourself. because they identified. the money comes from private donors in germany the european union also spends a lot of money in romania ten billion euros every year jenny had spectra seaview she's not too keen on the e.u. funds the battle with local authorities spending them their corruption and lack of cooperation is too difficult. let's let them have my billing of this nation maybe they should think about sending people from brussels to these countries to see who's responsible for inspecting projects and finding out where all the money goes it's almost god's will is that overall journey things romania has profited immensely from being a member of the e.u. the infrastructure in the cities is much improved europe has also helped building schools and paying teachers but in roma settlements only one child in five is
4:03 pm
actually going to school for the precocious and the neighbors this has changed also the result of jenny's project. my daughter loves school i kept her at home for a while but she really wants to be in school. more than anything else education is the key to a better future for the roma communities in romania again argos we see in your report the e.u. is still facing major development challenges particularly in its eastern periphery it has many other challenges to watch the general mood among the leaders at this summit with parliamentary elections just a couple weeks away. no terry this is a free summit and that is i have to say not just for the journalist but also for your leaders some something of a bit of a relief after this torture is a process of the u.k. withdrawing from the european union and that is why leaders want to use this in
4:04 pm
order to look forward to the a future of the twenty seven e.u. member states and the objectives they want to have to consult of course is that in european elections there could be a far shift to the far right is due to the problems that have been on results like migration prices or the environment all the euro zone reform and that is why they want to work on these fronts in order to keep that's dangerous as small as possible . thank you very much said mattis in sea view romania now let's take a look at some of the other stories making headlines around the world today u.s. house judiciary committee has voted to hold attorney general william barr in contempt of congress the vote by the democrat led panel came after barr refused to hand over and an redacted version of robert miller's russia report the white house has called the step a blatant abuse of power. and israel and security forces have arrested the vice

4:06 pm
a lavish parade with thousands of troops marching past president vladimir putin and other high ranking russian officials decide to servicemen hundreds of military vehicles and seventy four aircraft are involved in this play victory three victory day commemorates the surrender of nazi germany in one thousand nine hundred five and russia is celebrated a day later than in other countries because if the documents were signed after midnight moscow time. let's bring in our correspondent in moscow more drugs or it she's been following this is right in the thick of it at red square this is a nationwide holiday in russia millions are watching this parade as they have for decades what does this parade mean for russians today. well it means sell a lot to them and when you visit their russian family and you talk with them about
4:07 pm
let's say the world war two they will start telling you stories about their grandfathers many of them died during world war two so it means a lot to almost all russians the military parade just ended russians are today in it festive mood much of the city center is close for the facilities there are hundreds of events going on in the city for victory day you hear groups from all over the world singing and dancing in downtown moscow the celebrations here are dominated by joy and pride there's almost no mourning for the dead no reflection on the price paid for the big three by the soviet people all but often mistakes made by stalin and his general it's just as a reminder over twenty five million solve it citizens died during world war two but the government doesn't want on this discussion about what happened at least not today. mitra critics say this phrase been turned into a propaganda exercise or russian leader vladimir putin what's your assessment.
4:08 pm
when i think it's shoe according to the last poll it's only a minority of russians really support the war in syria for example we heard today president putin he has always encouraged great the celebrations of victory day in the past few years when he addressed crowds in red square you can hear a sense of historical triumph i would say against all odds of the soviet union to face the most powerful assault by the nazis but there is no force and there will be no force that could conquer russian people we heard this message in the last year years and we heard it today as well interact thank you so much t.v. is made drugs or edge in moscow. the people of sudan have succeeded in removing a long term dictator omar al bashir but that doesn't mean they've won power for themselves leaders of the mass protest which sparked the removal of bashir say the military council which replaced him is delaying the implementation of civilian rule

street its driver said the ride sharing firm can afford to give them basic benefits like vacation and sick pay. and data gobbling clubs and algorithms are revolutionizing the way you get your mail will take it to the interface of artificial intelligence and the workplace. welcome to the business of stephen beardsley in berlin. china's vice premier is headed for crucial trade talks in washington just hours before a new u.s. tariffs take effect on two hundred billion dollars worth of chinese goods president donald trump opposed the levies after choosing the chinese are making earlier trade commitments a charge he repeated at a florida rally last night. they broke. the new trade deal had been in the works this week but now the talks are looking increasingly acrimonious chinese side will be under pressure today to head off those tariffs or beijing says it will retaliate if they do take effect. now for more on this let's go to our
4:20 pm
correspondent in taipei william young you are william thanks for coming on the show we have what's the feeling in china over these coming trade talks. yes stephen so we know that china's ministry of commerce has already said beijing is left with no choice but to implement counter measures even though they did not specify what would be adopted and the state run people say they also publish an op ed warning the u.s. not to expect china to respond to donald trump's threats with concessions so it's clear that the chinese are not ready to give in to pressures from washington without weighing their options to extend the trade talk. that's at least the public right right that there's going to they're going to tow the hard line here but there is a bit of pressure on beijing to come out with a deal correct given the economic indicators in the country.
4:21 pm
yeah exactly so and especially after the chinese president xi jinping he vetoed the extra concessions that's proposed by the chinese trade representative last week so the biggest mission for the chinese delegation this week is to try to prevent the furder increase of the tariffs on chinese goods while trying to seek the possibility of settling the trade war through a final trade deal and even though china has stock market experience the single biggest one day lost on monday experts still think that china could rattle wall street and the. support base if they. limit their purchases of american products or they stop opening up their markets to american firms for drew the threats were both was briefly another big dispute of course over chinese import of randian oil does china show any signs of curbing purchases briefly if you could it's pretty clear that the chinese
4:22 pm
china is not ready to give up its economic interest in the deals with iran so the foreign ministry has already set that they oppose the long arm jurisdiction that's proposed by the u.s. unilateral economic sanctions and so they call on all sides to remain in dialogue while vowing that they would continue to defend the interests of chinese companies if necessary william younger force in taipei thank you william. u.s. china trade dispute also looms over america's critical tech sector companies in the u.s. complain about intellectual property theft and market restrictions in china both themes raised by u.s. negotiators of course they also rely on chinese manufacturing as well as chinese consumers china's burgeoning text tech companies meanwhile want better market access in the u.s. . since this report from california. enjoying silicon valley and the
4:23 pm
openness of the google community with developers from all over the world you ruined her colleagues are from china and very excited about attending this conference for the very first time. a so good chance to learn. develop through. a very very special. you asked china trade for its year in mountain view california north of the end but many you ask tech companies already caught in the crossfire. especially those relying on manufacturers and suppliers in china companies like apple president trump's latest terror threat could hit hard to detect giant and even force it to move its i phone production out of china silicon valley is affected like the rest of the country
4:24 pm
says alan sykes professor at the university but he also acknowledges that the sticking points in the negotiations are important to the tech companies i'm sure they're a bit ambivalent in many cases they would like to see u.s. strategy succeed in getting a spitter access to the chinese market better intellectual property protection but they're worried that it won't succeed and that will end up in some sort of protracted trade war which will hurt everybody a better market access debts what google wants in china google and blocked in china just like facebook. for instagram china's restrictions and tough regulations make it hard for american tech companies to reach more than seven hundred million chinese internet teasers relaxing both restrictions is seen as crucial for the future of the industry. many in the industry here are so committed to their jobs they brushed off trade concerns are still very alike very passionate about our work
4:25 pm
and so what happens over there is not going to impact our the quality of our work or our product trying to make the best as we can and then it's what the developers wants to focus on new hard to or better software solutions and not politics. and speaking of tech firms markets are bracing for the debut of an i.p.o. that could see the transport company valued at eighty billion dollars valuation has a lot to do with vision of driverless cars but for now many drivers say they're unhappy with the current employment model they've been turning off their apps in a worldwide protest over working conditions and pay the super must do more for them calling for things like a minimum wage. or a financial correspondent frankfurt conrad conrad how about there in germany rehabilitation to work this morning. stephen i ride
4:26 pm
a bike to go to work and you know i only recently learned that over and it's right hailing service have returned to frankfurt for quite a while the service have been banned here as well as in the other major cities here in germany and ober has only been allowed to return back after accepting a number of rules to the effect that over at its right hailing is not really competitive to traditional taxi services so the service here in germany is too small and too irrelevant to create angry drivers that would be willing to stage any protests and it's important to note that the right healing firm has adjusted to different governments across the world sometimes more regulation sometimes less and what about the i.p.o. expected for tomorrow conrad how big an event is this going to be for markets people in frankfurt for example. it is going to be
4:27 pm
a very big event or has made sure that the public relations mill is really very very active in financial centers all over the world and you know or has to do this because we're desperately needs the money from this i.p.o. not only did it make roughly ten billion u.s. dollars in operating losses last year it has a massive cash burn of nearly two billion u.s. dollars. some people on the market say without the i.p.o. the company would really risk of running out of money the venture capitalists who have financed over so far. are said to have become very very unwilling to continue to pour money into. so all eyes are going to be on this i.p.o. it's more a contribution with the latest from frankfurt think you can run. now many think of artificial intelligence as a technology that will transform our lives in the future the fact is already all

around us sort of directing our behavior and even helping us get our mail. gloves are mandatory here but not for hygiene reasons this mail center in berlin the gloves have a scanner attached to them with its help workers can register unsought specially marked items so that traceable errors are registered immediately. nevertheless many here don't see the new glove as a threat but rather as an aid. makes work easier because employees don't have to go to stationary scanners and it can be used anywhere we don't have to work from one location so we can react flexibly to any restructuring needed the intelligent work was developed by the munich startup program of the idea behind it is that the scanner should use the built in sensors to detect objects that collect and process information the companies approximately

three hundred customers worldwide from the automotive aviation and retail industries can collect the information in a cloud evaluate it and then optimize work processes. just having these software interfaces and the cloud connection to enable further analysis for the companies and for the employees is a big challenge it all sounds simple and even when you see the glove you think it's just a glove but actually there's a lot of technology and intellectual property involved by the end of this year two hundred employees should be working here on the startup is aiming for profits in the tens of millions this year. the startup code that so is also located in munich the founders noticed how complicated and cumbersome scaffolding is currently eighty percent of scaffold is time is used to transport the pumps and in gemini alone around six thousand accidents occur every year during erecting and dismantling the industry has three main challenges labor shortage seated in the efficiency. today
4:30 pm
solutions do not provide adequate solutions to this challenges and us and as for weaver what we develop everybody could have later we can improve the work of people today. this elevator can transport several scaffolding components at the same time and thanks to artificial intelligence the system recognizes where the next ones are needed for many scuffled build as it solves the problem of a shortage of skilled workers in the meantime caught so has received several advance orders for its system and serial production is due to start in may. and that's it from me and the business team in berlin you can of course find out more about these and other stories that com slash business or follow us on facebook or twitter. as always let's watch.

a for instance eurozone reform the e.u.'s monetary union desperately needs reform something that particularly the french president is pushing for and seeing that not a lot of positive support came from the german side he will be looking for other e.u. member states you have issues such as the rule of law where some member states are not particularly following the rules and thinking here about poland but also hungary and then of course you have environmental challenges the my creation crisis so lots and lots on the plate for your leaders to discuss but also this summit will send the message of unity it's a practice of three summits to reach the mate of the british leader is not here and that is why everyone at the other twenty seven e.u. members will take that chance to look forward to a brighter future as they have put it they will make a declaration of c.p.u. ten commitments of what they want hope in the years to come the e.u. can do in order to strengthen this club of twenty seven still twenty eight member
4:53 pm
states. this some again or comes just a couple of weeks ahead of e.u. parliamentary elections the block is facing massive challenges some of which you just described what's the general mood among your leaders as their citizens for pair to vote. there is of course the big concern that the european elections will create a a push to the far right particularly in the european parliament which is an institution a key institution in the european union that can veto a lot of the projects that leaders will have in mind having said that it is another reason to tackle the issues such as the environment such as euro zone reform in order to take ground away from those elements in the european union who are trying to exploit this in the campaigning for instance the migration crisis is a good example and many here have said we need to resolve the questions how do we relocate micron's who have arrived in much lesser numbers which is a success of e.u.
4:54 pm
policy but how do we relocate them we need to answer these questions unless we want that far right politicians to exploit them in these elections your gratis covering that you summit in syria romania thank you so much. now some of the other stories making news around the world today the u.s. house judiciary committee has voted to hold attorney general william barr in contempt of congress the vote by the democrat led panel came after barr refused to hand over an unredacted version of robert miller's russia report the white house has called the step a blatant abuse of power. venezuelan security forces have arrested the vice president of the country's opposition controlled national assembly it goes on brando seen here on the left is the deputy of self-proclaimed president on. soprano is the first opposition figure to be arrested since the opposition's failed attempt

responsibility it appears on forty six million banknotes you central bank says it will correct it at the next premature. russia is marking the seventy fourth anniversary of the soviet victory over nazi germany in world war two russians across the country commemorate victory day with the biggest celebration by far taking place in moscow's red square in a lavish parade thousands of troops marched past president vladimir putin and other high ranking russian officials besides the servicemen scores of military vehicles and seventy four aircraft were involved in the display victory day commemorates the surrender of nazi germany in one thousand nine hundred five in russia is celebrated a day later than in other countries because the official documents were signed after midnight in time. our moscow correspondent meir drugs
4:57 pm
surratt she is standing by for us and risk where and sent us this. russians on a festive mood today the military parade is being broadcast live from red square much of the city center is closed for the festivities there are hundreds of events going on in the city for victory day groups from all over the world singing and dancing in downtown moscow the celebrations are dominated by joy and pride there's almost no mourning for the dead no reflection of the price paid for the victory by the soviet people all the mistakes made by stalin and his generals over twenty five million people. we have to say solve it to citizens not only russians died during world war two just as a reminder but the government doesn't want honest discussion about what's happened at least not today president putin always has encouraged greater celebrations of victory day in the past few years when he addressed crowds in red square you can
4:58 pm
hear his sense of historical triumph against all odds he basically said the soviet union faced the most powerful sots by the nazis but there is no force and there will be no force that could conquer the russian people. of course now we've got some champions league football for you and another stunning come from behind victory in the semifinals this time london's tottenham broke the hearts of. the healy is here to tell us all about it. tell us what well after of course that amazing match between barcelona and liverpool twenty four hours before this match between that tottenham hotspur is and everyone thought out this is going to be a little bit little bit more boring and it was far from a to say the least of course tottenham made it through to the final for the first time in the club's history and as we're seeing here i.x. got a head with a two neil reed lead in the first half first goal from the teesta left after five
4:59 pm
minutes and then i can see yes and they were thinking right we're going to be in the final. last time they want to was back in one thousand nine hundred five with tottenham hit back hard to go straight after half time before new custom a st lucas out of the third and decisive goal in the very final minute of the match to put top hospitals in the final very very exciting for them and like i said it's the first time in the club's history that they are going to be in a european cup final they must be over the moon spectacular football in general in the champions league this week to amazing games a stinging defeat for. the dutch must be in a state of shock they are in a state of shock because like we just heard there from the report of course they were leading and let's not forget that they went into this match already want to head and of course does this whole aggregate thing which richard some people if they don't understand it is essentially that i x. were ahead from their previous match against tottenham hotspur. and then they were
5:00 pm
you know coming up to the ninety six minute looked like they were going to make it into the final because not only was were was there too well but they were actually still ahead i act so they would have actually made it through to the final and then of course because maurice st lucas of course and not very and north london. made it put the spurs into the final and you know i think what we should do now is hear from my research do you know of course the spurs coach three goals. superheroes the super super super good if you go i think was amazing and seen he was really do you going to go yes i think from the sea knight mushing one through four pm. and using night for him of course you can about lucas motor and he is delighted with themselves and you know it's hard work and it's going to be an all english final of course you know it must really hurt for the dutch happening at home especially you know on top of everything well the usual you could try and
5:01 pm
console a team that's as good and as young as i axed by saying well there's always next year but that doesn't really apply this time tell us about the no and that's exactly it i mean i x. is a team that invests heavily in its youth system it produces and turns out a lot of big players i'm in fact this is a very young team like you said you know seven of the eleven players on the pitch last night twenty four years old so that's incredibly young and then a lot of the big bigger clubs in europe will be sweeping and hoping to wear you know by some of the big players like you know my teams delish he's only nineteen years old he's been out i.x. since he was nine years old and you know he's captain of course which is incredibly young for a captain but you know they they were practically in the final and the last time they won the european cup was boards or the champs he was back in one thousand nine hundred five so you know over twenty years they were almost there but in the end of course spurs have made it through they're going to be in the final with liverpool and it's going to be a big affair and of course it's going to be another big european city for football
5:02 pm
and that's madrid a big english affair it must be said and all english final there in madrid and probably i know you live part of your time in madrid is that city ready for two english clubs and you know for fans of two english clubs to descend on the city well madrid's a city that's well well capable of that hosting these big events you know there's these big clubs around madrid let me go madrid of course this final is going to take place and let me go madrid stadium the one the metropolitan which is near the airports not in the center of town and not so long ago there was a big operation related to football of course in madrid that was the second leg of the argentinian cup i leave it up towards final so i think it's going to be you know packed the sun cream and get the sunglasses x. is going to be a hot affair there imagery between these two big news clips we'll be watching in three weeks time public folios from v.w. sport thanks very. just a reminder the top story we're following for you here today on the news you're reading is coming under increasing pressure after the u.s.
5:03 pm
announced harsh new sanctions on the country's mining industry the president's move came after tehran said it was it has suspended some parts of the nuclear deal signed with world powers and twenty fifteen which the u.s. withdrew from last year the european union says it rejects any ultimatum from iran . are watching t.v. news from berlin up next we've got a documentary for you on the fact that their pollution is having on our health that's in the clean air a human rights search will be here at the top of the next hour with more news a string with. europe a big idea. but what's become of it. what will it look like tomorrow.
5:04 pm
hoping for a better future isn't enough in europe requires our cultures of asia. european elections twenty nineteen may twenty sixth on d w. a neighborhood street festival in the german city of cologne for a dying cause a band pedestrians and bicyclists a free to use the streets normally traffic clogs these roads and pollutes the air levels of fine particulate matter and nitrogen oxides high in downtown cologne pediatrician christiane during is trying to raise awareness of the problem. i know your kids have a cigarette off of as lot of. this cigarette made of chewing gum
5:05 pm
symbolizes the invisible danger of particular matter and nitrogen oxides it represents the two cigarettes with toxins during says cologne residents inhale every day. he sees a lot of young patients with respiratory problems in his practice in. public in the us processes for no fish are pediatric practice is located nearby in an area with heavy traffic and we've observed an increase in the problems children have in the months when we get temperature in versions of this stuff and then the polluted air is trapped below and there's an increase in respiratory irritants from traffic concert particles from coal fired power plants children get diseases that are more severe and they need longer to recover we have to prescribe more medications. it's generally accepted that fine particular matter and nitrogen oxides pollute the air we breathe and can destroy our health the question is who is responsible.
5:06 pm
fine particulates a small fragments of solid materials only could droplets suspended in the air they may contain contaminants such as sort of lead particulate matter is divided into three categories. the largest of these particles are attempt of the width of a human hair this is the catch a great p m ten particulate matter less than ten microns in diameter and these relatively course particles tend to stay in the respiratory tract refined matter that has particles less than two point five microns in diameter make up the class pm two point five and is small enough to penetrate the lungs ultra fine particles are less than. zero point one micron in diameter and a can into the bloodstream. i think a bag and if the particles are small enough to get into the bloodstream that's
5:07 pm
a huge problem in small children whose immune defenses are still wake there are uses to mr in training so to speak preparing for all the things that it will face later in life that's why kids generally have weak immune defenses in addition and i'll show you here the long of a twelve month old child is still very very small that's a big problem for pediatricians that's going to out through the whole. air pollution and affects the most vulnerable the sick the elderly and children like you know you'll find there this six year old has to use a nebulizer to thin the mucus in his lungs when air quality in cologne tyria rights during the winter months you'll get to come that invariably develops into broadcasters or even pneumonia in an effort to break the cycle doctors prescribe various medications and inhalations this chorister. the main problem is the strong medications and i try to avoid them by treating him first with homeopathy
5:08 pm
and herbals and then cough syrup but we usually end up resorting to a cord as i spray on the back half into a soon as he starts coughing i tense up because i always feel that he develops this cough no matter what i do. or what it means is that families have kids i can't live in cities especially if they're predisposed to these kinds of conditions i mean i'm not home mom chemically outside yes via because the air is so bad that ultimately you can't live there. the sun's chronic condition forced into and offend version to move out to the suburbs but you'll scoff hasn't improved it seems there's no escaping the colones polluted air.
5:09 pm
we've even considered moving to the coast. you know but i'm a teacher so i can't just get up and leave it's always a question of where you can find a job but theoretically everybody should move away from cologne. traffic is one of the causes of air pollution in cities sixty three percent of traffic related particular matter is generated by brake and tile where only thirty seven percent stems from engine source engines are primarily responsible for the nitrogen oxides in city air less so for particulate matter. traffic generates high levels of dangerous ultra fine particles toxins adhere to their surfaces and can into the bloodstream. in downtown cologne pediatrician christian during is vacuuming dirt off the street deposits of fine particular matter consisting of sort and rubber as well as lead barium aluminum and mercury street cleaning has long
5:10 pm
been used as a method of reducing traffic related air pollution but what christian during his doing here is merely symbolic. in the snow was not a bad year. as these are all going on this road has made a difference the substances we vacuumed out these particles have contaminated the water so much that when we pour it in here you see that it's completely cloudy thoughts of the intruders. how damaging is particular matter to our internal organs next to the symmetry is the institute of forensic medicine of colognes university hospital. the basement pathology lab is the work place of. medicine specialist marcus. here here investigates cases in which the course type or time of death is unclear.
5:11 pm
what shield can read the organs of the deceased like a book this lung is no exception. in this this is the long of a man aged around fifty who lived here in the city if the autopsy determined that he died of natural causes what we see very clearly by looking at is long that he held significant quantities of particulates matter. the deceased was not a smoker the pathologist can tell that from the tissue still the left lung is covered in black dots. toilet if you can see polluted air as a residue in the lungs the shiny covering here is the poem and the reply that surrounds each lung in directly beneath the pleura you see this pattern of black dots these are carbon particles particles and it's the dirt this individual inhaled
5:12 pm
and that was deposited in his lungs. we bring about twenty thousand times every day passing some ten thousand liters of air through our land particles smaller than ten micro meters in diameter or p.m.t. into the nasal cavity and trachea our natural defenses allows us to cough or sneeze small amounts out of our bodies. but those defenses are overtaxed by large quantities of particles the respiratory tract swells up even smaller particles pm to four and five can enter the pollner e.l.p. or lie and trigger procul infections the result. pneumonia or bronchitis. licola chronic inflammations this causes can create proliferation of connective tissue fibrosis and along that reduces the lungs elasticities and the patient
5:13 pm
experiences shortness of breath a hunger for air that is not curable with the tired of our. ultra fine particles into the bloodstream triggering chronic inflammation of blood vessels that leads to clog arteries that can lead to a heart attack or stroke statistics for europe show that pollution can shave up to two years off our life span. the black life shortening deposits of visible under the microscope the accumulation of carbon particles in the loans is known as answer cosas. but if you look at this and consider that our own lungs probably look the same it's clear that we need to go out and breathe fresh air from time to time of innocent people living in big cities all have lungs in which we find to a greater or lesser extent deposits of carbon particles mean it would have been a go shark plague but i have to say that when i started thirty years ago we saw far more pronounced cases of anthrax hoaxes than we do today
5:14 pm
a plea on the whole it's declined but we still see it in anyone who lives in a big city looking obviously in this but you don't there never was. there pollution generated by particulate matter drop significantly in germany after nine hundred ninety that includes not driven oxides which was thrust into the spotlight by german car make a v wus more recent emissions scandal but since two thousand and nine there's been little improvement in equality. the situation is far more grave in delhi the world's most polluted capital the air in the indian city is ten times more contaminated than in cologne a trip to delhi is like a trip into germany's past this is how polluted the western european country was for decades ago. people try to protect themselves with face masks. we meet up with the shore club she works for the center of sons and environment and
5:15 pm
is an environmental advisor to the government she takes measurements to show us just how bad the it is. knife to cut cut. cut cut cut. cut cut cut cut cut cut cut cut cut cut. cut. outs if you have been bored at home but if you take a job of actually doing a job. the daily threshold value for particles in germany is fifty micrograms per cubic meter of. the measurements show delhi exceeds that by a factor of thirty that were taken in a heavily polluted area still there and bombing. the tough issue for doing. so
5:16 pm
if you want to buy a shuttle he should he would have. been a joint she is when i started working for to push him it does change my mind and now i want the world for the air pollution and i am going to feel that the so that if not please tell me the definition of the tradition of missing to be sure. that whatever you think. the indian government has responded by closing the coal fired power plants and ordering taxis that run on gasoline or diesel to switch to compressed natural gas but many still fill up with the bad fuel and traffic isn't even the main source of jelly small it's the poor households in this city of twenty eight million. in that used coal heated ions to press their laundry and open fires to cook their meals. households like bano davies
5:17 pm
every day she makes traditional flat bread often she uses lacquered wood to fire her star of such domestic cooking fire as one of the biggest sources of pollution here delis poor residents a poison in the city's air and themselves. i have trouble breathing he is. he or my eyes search. and i often get headaches. and. sometimes i can hardly breathe and have to go to the hospital with a good. view from space air pollution it is plain to see the haze hovers not only above the city but stretches in a broad band across india pollution levels are highest between november and march then hospital waiting rooms fill up with coughing patients and pollution kills an
5:18 pm
estimated one point eight million indians every year doctors at b.l.k. hospital center of the chest and respiratory diseases use a lung function test to check for early warning signs. not only be. known be there and be britain's a real out. some more the more the more the more i think that people can say that's very excellent. but doctors can only treat the patient's symptoms and try to relieve their pain in the recent deal as the number is increasing day by day i'm seeing more and more young children the symptoms suggestive of eyes not i'm seeing more and more in delhi people would still be due to ask my guests or sin very frequently. so the number does almost double i can not tell my patients to stop breathing because it's essential to breathe so when i see
5:19 pm
them again and again in my will pretty telling that we are the only a bit better but we're not absolutely all right it's really first good thing then i don't have to take a philosophy and kill everybody to plant a tree but probably you know we need more than just planting a tree. the bale family lives in greater. an affluent district in the capital they have installed special technology in their home to help improve quality. that may. visit my. media. there is no one there knowing right now ok so then we haven't started yet. that's right phillips. they're very fired there and the big brand their unit got forbes so this recently or one from either group. there
5:20 pm
that one revere recently bought. you know like. roger. so this is a very very serious story that from a big company. marine i'll buy a lot is an architect. he spent almost a thousand euros on the air purifiers when they go outside in air pollution is high the children have to wear face masks. last year there was a time my children even stepped out and they were just. stepping out for the next week for school or anything so they wore their mask to our living so there was a backpack. in the winter myra and mira spent three to four months almost exclusively indoors twenty two of the world's most polluted cities are in india and
5:21 pm
the situation isn't improving clean air is a precious commodity that only the wealthy can afford to improve inequality for everyone india would need to lift millions out of poverty under-educated open fire cooking. germany could serve as an example its biggest polluters industry and coal fired power plants were ordered to install filters systems domestic coal ovens were gradually replaced by gas heating and electric stoves. the german environment agency operates one of six measuring stations in noida globe so in eastern brandenburg state it also analyzes dacha from . the state finance stations marion vic mumfie big heads the agency's equality department she advises the government on strategies to tackle fine particulate matter and nitrogen oxides them a lot of that is currently collecting particulate matter isn't here at midnight
5:22 pm
it's pivoted over here and falls into this refrigerated chamber where the use filters are stored it's good to stop although we can see there's already a residue on it. and in the bigger they are not running back in the one nine hundred seventy s. you could literally taste and see the smog at least in the industrial very area and big cities with a glint of the fine particulate matter we measure here is a health hazard that you can't see and so it's hard to convince people that it's a serious risk to their health. agency uses high precision instruments to conduct its measurements when coal fired power plants are ramped up in neighboring poland or winds carry saharan dust clouds to germany the values measured he arrives in the e.u. the threshold values for the inhalable particles measuring two point five microns or less is twenty five micrograms per cubic meter of air averaged over three years . for how one small vessel and we took the data for pm two point five
5:23 pm
in germany and compared it with the authorized threshold value that they're going to show us on thing as you see on the map everything is green which means we have not exceeded any threshold value and are in compliance with the limit so it looks like there is no health risks but the world health organizations recommended limit is much lower when we compared our data to their threshold value of the map was suddenly red in other words there is a health hazard so if we want to protect public health we should use the w h o's recommendations as our yardstick. threshold values are always the result of negotiations politicians not doctors all scientists decide whether the air we print is clean and. and currently politicians are focused on road traffic as the main source of pollution but marian victim and phoebe says my spells when. oil would fuel heating systems are significant factor in air pollution especially out
5:24 pm
enbrel areas in fun if you drive through a village you'll see stacks of wood everywhere people use them to light a cozy evening fire but most don't have an exhaust filter and everything that's burned inside goes straight up through the chimney and out into the air and that's what we bring. emissions of pm two point five particulates matter from wood studs has risen in germany in recent years while the share from automobile engines has dropped since two thousand and eight woodfield started seven missed more particular matter than engines would combustion now generates ball most as much atmospheric pollution as traffic comprising engine exhaust as well as tire and brake when. the reason more and more people like the schimmel family are eating with wood because it's considered a carbon neutral fuel but particulate matter from wood burning stoves is as much a health hazard as diesel sort chimney sweeps regularly encounter users who don't
5:25 pm
know the rules of making a fire it's a big problem so that's my stock now i would under starter. the way you've packed it i don't know where you put the kindling it would be totally overloaded just real intolerable. stoves that are overloaded almost with high moisture content emits high levels of pollutants like nitrogen and sulphur oxides hydrochloric acid and particulate matter. chimneysweep mario vide sold use a small logs and wood will soaked in west to light the fire he puts the thinner logs on top this is the low emission top down method. who they are so that's the way to do it a perfectly stacked starve. the manufacturer has testbench conditions to achieve certain values with optimized
5:26 pm
words and set up conditions for these vary from site to site. so in order to make it at all possible that the emissions correspond relatively closely to the manufacturer's values we cheerfully sweep's need to show our customers how to use their stoves wrappers otherwise it's pointless. even if owners like their fires by the book it's virtually impossible to match manufacturers a mission values in daily use woodstoves a much more pollution inclined despite the best efforts of chimney sweeps. you are going to try word below at the emissions source or the stove the cleaner the exhaust gases that i generate will be and the more i'm protecting the environment and my neighborhood of foreign made mine in mr one. according to the german environment agency wood stoves account for twenty percent of the particulate matter emitted in the pm two point five size range in germany
5:27 pm
that figure is rising. power plants are still the biggest emitters with twenty six percent two thirds of these emissions stem from coal fired power plants traffic takes third place with nineteen percent the share contributed by agriculture is just five percent. but the german environment agency only measures direct emissions you'll slowly felt it is a professor of atmospheric physics at the max planck institute for chemistry his findings are quite different lately felt says there's another culprit responsible for polluted air livestock. yeah. the animals bear share of responsibility for the problem this from a great sustainably but whenever you buy cheap meat from a conventional factory farm you're making a decisive contribution to the creation of atmospheric particular matter. how
5:28 pm
was that possible layfield explains the following distinction primary particulate matter is a mix of directly into the atmosphere when matter created for example by tie aware of or engine combustion decomposes into smaller particles secondary particulate matter is formed by chemical processes in the air. ammonia for example which escapes from farm in new york combines with other substances to form particulate molecules some of these substances carcinogenic and small enough to into the gas exchange regions of the lung the alveoli and the blood strain. i said if. i believe the german environmental agencies figure of five percent is too low. or seventy percent of find particulate matter is formed in the atmosphere it isn't released in some way as dust is formed chemically. you can apply when livestock
5:29 pm
manure is spread as fertilizer in other fields the ammonia it contains escapes into the atmosphere only or also escapes from the stables and particulate matter is formed when ammonia combines with nitrogen oxides from road traffic the. alarming conclusion some forty percent of all the fine particulate matter in germany is generated by agriculture and above all by factory farming and. ammonia gas from farm in your blankets the ground and reacts among other things with nitrogen oxides from traffic to form ammonium nitrate in the atmosphere it may become snow. genic high ammonia levels are produced in northwestern germany a center of industrial animal farming west winds carry the gas across the country meat production is a key industry in germany could that be why there's so little public debate about
5:30 pm
agriculture is role in generating particulate matter. madeon victim and feel big agrees with bell's assessment. that if i start if we want to tackle the problem of particulates matter we need to see fewer wood burning stoves less livestock farming or cutting emissions from livestock farming less ammonia that would be ideas that would reduce so-called secondary particulates matter and would really bring relief to a large part of the population and we could meet the stricter threshold values. that would significantly reduce particulate matter pollution across germany and not just in large cities. as you can use no doubt and this is not just about guaranteeing every person's right to clean air it's also about making clean air economically viable people call in sick to work they have chronic diseases none of
5:31 pm
that is factored into the equation instead of short term economic interests are given precedence without a real evaluation of the health liabilities and their related costs so you know. the problem of ambient particulate matter missive by wood stoves an agriculture is compounded in cities by traffic. particulate matter and nitrogen oxides accumulate at hot spots on heavily trafficked roads in so-called street canyons or at railway stations and this is especially true in the winter months when temperature inversion traps polluted any of the ground. barbara hoffman is an environmental epidemiologist who's evaluated studies on air pollution involving tens of thousands of party. supplants. findings a surprising. there out of i was it's not really tricky of course it's the drivers who are sitting in a cabin that are exposed to the highest levels i'm fine i'm fine is all that and
5:32 pm
when riding a bicycle even if you can only distance yourself from heavy traffic by a few meters or take a road parallel to the main road the exposure is already significantly lower beutler. sixty five cities in germany regularly exceed limits cannot trigger an upside emissions produced by diesel vehicles the values are particularly high in munich stuttgart and cologne. environment commission a common avella took germany and five other countries to court. some of the pm compliance to be. in two thousand. and five the complains for to be in two thousand and ten so i think we've waited a long time and we cannot possibly wait any longer we cannot have plans which are telling us that compliance might be sometime even after twenty twenty one
5:33 pm
after twenty twenty five times so these were the main reasons. the most effective way to rapidly cut nitrogen oxide pollution is to ban diesel cars from roads with the government dragging its feet the organization environmental action germany began suing the sixty five affected cities to force them to stay within the e.u. pollution limits the first verdict was handed down in early june twenty eight hundred of them became the first german city force to take action by an administrative court. just one lot over the state of north rhine-westphalia who's now take all necessary measures to ensure that a complies with the limits of nitrogen dioxide by september first twenty nineteen sort of skittish however the court has made it clear that it considers a ban a diesel driving to be the only suitable measure to ensure compliance with this limit. so there's now a ninety eight percent likelihood that a ban on driving diesel cars will be imposed. three weeks later in late june twenty
5:34 pm
eighth in an administrative court in stuttgart also ruled in favor of driving bans . the state government complied banning diesel cars from all roads in stuttgart from january the first twenty nineteen and not just on selected roads like in hamburg or as planned in berlin. the ban applies to cars made to euro four standard and older. so we wouldn't be discussing driving bans. today have cars were as clean as they're supposed to be if manufacturers had used cheating software but installed suitable hardware would be complying with air quality standards for both nitrogen oxides and particular matter. if all the affected cities introduced driving bans at least one point three million diesel drivers would be impacted tallness cost is an advisor to
5:35 pm
federal ministries he doesn't see driving bans as a necessity. of arm i've always appealed for patience the values will continue to improve and reach targets across the board even in schuchardt and munich through france or come our initial. call who argues that diesel technology is indispensable if all vehicles were replaced by vehicles with better exhaust technology it would be more environmentally friendly than scrapping older vehicles just because of their high emissions one of whom voted for the congress and now. this folks wagon percent has a diesel engine that's banned instructor that is excellent into the diesel engine is a feat of engineering and no nation masters this technology better than we do in germany german engineers did an incredible job here even if there are some things that weren't criticism in total it's an excellent engineering achievement for the ingenuity to. call heads the reciprocating engines institute at the karlsruhe
5:36 pm
institute of technology his team studies engine emissions and alternative fuels kok believes the diesel engine has been demonized in the pollution debate he doesn't condone manufacturers use of fraudulent software to cheat emissions tests but he blames policymakers for setting road traffic pollution limits at a time when they were technologically unattainable. but about a third of the small business was a lot of it will go about. developers faced an impossible task either they had high levels of particulate matter and low levels of nitrogen oxides or high levels of nitrogen oxides and low levels of particulate matter back then you couldn't achieve low levels of both at the same time that only became possible with exhaust aftertreatment technology but it was
5:37 pm
a generally known fact that in reality vehicles were emitting far more than the utopian limit of one hundred eighty milligrams kilometer. simle tiny asli cutting particulate matter and not trippin oxides wasn't technically feasible ten years ago in diesel engines combustion occurs at a particularly high temperature generating a lot of nitrogen oxides in fact the particulate filter in diesel cars relies on not true gentile side to prevent clogging the gas converts the carbon sort into not trick oxide and c o two these exhaust gases when filtered. detention engineers have been in this grazer where they have to decide which factors to prioritize in their t.v. fucked up because they could only reduce an engine's nitrogen oxide emissions at the cost of all other operational parameters engineers refrain from optimizing nitrogen oxide output. to me other. mechanical engineers have only been

able to comply with threshold regulations since the development of selective catalytic reduction technology it uses your rear to also remove nitrogen oxides today thomas called seize the diesel engine on the homestretch when it is not the diesel engine will be needed for years to come have patience the emissions problem is resolved we mustn't demonize diesel. but it will take years to upgrade ultra diesel vehicles on germany's roads with the new technology. affected cities. need to act and they need traffic managers because vehicles generate less pollution when they're moving them when they're stopped in traffic jams. is looking to technology for help it's installed filters around a measuring station at nec at all the location that clocks up the worst air pollution in germany yohannes stoner and patrick little are in charge of the pilot

5:40 pm
disposal to clean the air we're open to suggestions but we won't fall for useless hocus pocus then explain. this specialist hope they can persuade stuttgart authorities to install particle filter systems like this one on top of cars in city traffic. for their books for them to find shall we filter particulate matter in the books. on the funds turn in the year you can feel it here is drawn through the filter if i show you something else here we have installed the filter solution for the break. it filters particulate matter directly at the source. these brake filters could be installed in any vehicle cars trucks but also buses for example it's generated a lot of interesting things because start. the engine is a seeking to install their system on small trucks trains and busses this car also measures particulate matter in the environment during our entire test drive in
5:41 pm
stuttgart the values exceeded the legal limit. even in neighborhoods at higher elevations. you fit in with the roof top filter removes about eighty percent of particulate matter is five stops a horse in the break filter on the front axle author it was about eighty percent of particulate matter generated by brake wear. but filters can only clean the air that passes through them they can only fight the symptoms not the causes of pollution and they don't remove nitrogen oxides at all for now reducing the number of diesel vehicles appears to be the only solution. then go to the next and if in the space of a year we discover up to the task in some measurements that we're still a long way from meeting legal threshold values then well prepared to introduce driving restrictions for euro five vehicles in twenty twenty. recent court rulings

have put the government under pressure it's asked carmakers to offer trade in incentives to customers who scrap all the diesels the measures being criticized as a stimulus plan for the auto industry rather than a solution to pollution from the unfortunate years german car makers are offering attractive premiums w. for example six thousand euro's v.w. the v.w. group forty eight thousand or so five thousand euros an average of dollars more on the german government also wants to introduce compulsory hardware fixes for molded diesel cars as a buy we're still talking to manufacturers about. hardware retrofitting. one manufacturer said it will pay eighty percent of the conversion process so we're talking about the remaining twenty percent. of the restaurants want to get it sent . the incentives only apply in fourteen of germany's sixty five polluted cities but it's unclear whether they will be implemented to date no manufacturer has

5:44 pm
can't avoid is general exposure there we have no control over what we inhale by. air pollution is rather like radioactivity it's invisible and it takes decades before its effects show up. flights to measure air pollution have given physicist your slowly felt a different perspective. he and his colleagues study air samples taken at high altitudes the air pollution which we don't even notice on the ground is visible from the. aircraft window. you can see how bad the visibility is that's air pollution these are not clouds. and the haze over frankfurt or other cities is not a local phenomenon it's a large scale phenomenon. which people in germany are exposed to this air pollution
5:45 pm
on a daily basis. if you're exposed to this pollution for a longer period of time diseases well developed. together with other scientists your slowly filters calculated that seven million people worldwide die prematurely from air pollution every year in germany the figure is probably fifty thousand lifestyle diseases caused by obesity smoking and alcohol abuse remain the biggest health hazard but air pollution poses the greatest environmental threat to global health. i advise everyone to look out of an airplane window from down here you can see how dirty the air is but if you look down from up past you see very clearly movies on their knees and when you realize that it's very sad your breathing in and out more than ten thousand times a day and it's clear that the air really needs to be clean if you want to live
5:46 pm
a healthy life is when its neighbor to americans is in flood it's possible that we're on the right track and pollution has decreased slightly but we're still a long way from meeting clean air targets a lot more needs to be done. which way is europe heading from three's president frames europe is in the grip of a civil war in italy hungary entirely leading politicians say that i think

5:50 pm
suspending some parts of the agreement now the crisis has been building since the u.s. unilaterally withdrew from the deal last year earlier the iranian president gave the e.u. sixty days to come up with a plan to shield his country from sanctions imposed by the united states but the european union has rejected that ultimatum. and there's been a sharp escalation of tension between the u.s. and iran as we've just heard the u.s. president donald trump for his part announcing harsh new sanctions after tehran saying that it was low longer comply with parts of that nuclear deal signed with world powers back in two thousand and fifteen but abandoned by the u.s. last year let's have a closer look. patient says run out read the headlines of iran's newspapers president hassan rouhani says he's not trying to destroy but rather to save the nuclear agreement by leveling an ultimatum to the five countries that are still signatories also but that if these five countries return to the table have in sixty

5:53 pm
keep it going about it is. concerning of course for leaders this partial withdrawal and seeing that it has been such a diplomatic success for the european union which is now under pressure to basically side either with iran or with a key ally of the u.s. so it is a difficult situation here where does all of this leave the e.u. toward iran. well as i said it leaves the middle difficult situation and they have worked long and hard in order to keep the deal a life after the unilateral withdrawal of the key signatory the u. u.s. and but it is. a truth that the mechanisms they have the e.u. has tried to brought bring up in order to keep this business going to iran just hasn't worked out to the extent that they would like to see that so it i've talked to a number of companies back in brussels who have made clear that they are just two concerns
5:54 pm
about u.s. sanctions so that is what really keeps them away from continuing business with iran and that business has been the key element that the iranian side wanted in order to fulfill their part of the deal that is nuclear nonproliferation meantime garrick aside from iran we know a lot of issues at stake at the summit today if you listen. absolutely a lot of unsettled issues here for the european union take for instance the euro zone the french president was here this this morning panning out his his picture of a future european union where environment plays an important role also resolving the migration crisis but also the euro zone the monetary union it desperately needs reform for the nineteen members of the e.u. that are in that monetary union so lots of things on the table having said that however a number of leaders here made clear we need to share shows throngs we need to show

5:58 pm
hear his sense of historical triumph against all odds he basically said the soviet union faced the most powerful swords by the nazis but there is no force and there will be no force that could conquer the russian people. champions league football now and another stunning come from behind victory in the semifinals this time london tottenham broke the hearts of i x. amsterdam. this year from force to tell us what happened well after all that drama of course in liverpool between the bar something everyone thought ok that's it we're done with the drama this is going to be a kind of a more common fair and it was far from it of course and i.x. were devastated of course to be thrown i believe take a look because they were of course leading they took a two near lead at half time and one of the goals from from matisse to lift the other one from siac then tottenham hit back and they scored two so as to all but
5:59 pm
still i actually in the in the lead because of course they won their previous match against spurs but then st lucas more i'm calling i'm saying lukas because that's the same for years and amongst tottenham fans today he added the third and decisive goal in the very last minute to put tottenham into. the final their first european cup final of course so very exciting for them devastating for i.x. and as you can imagine the celebrations amongst the spurs players rose as you can see here. doc the best choice that was terrible but they were they certainly were enjoying themselves and you can see this. by the celebration taking place there they're obviously. looking forward to the fight against liverpool was going to take place on june first and you really have to say i mean this is really some spectacular football now in the champions league on the one hand but on the other hand i mean a really stinging defeat for i.x. they must really be in
6:00 pm
a state of shock it was all fun for them and of course i axes a team to house someone in in europe in the champions league since one thousand nine hundred ninety five so they were really excited about it it's a relatively small team will say compared to you know some of the big giants like barcelona or liverpool or spurs even but this is a team that tends to invest heavily in its youth system and it's really producing and has produced some big players i mentioned before. and he's you know one of those big players but of course we're going to happen is a lot of the big clubs are going to swooping on they're going to take and maybe try and buy a lot of their big players over the summer but of course let's hear from their coach. but you know three rolls. out of superheroes these super super super you know we go so you know i think was amazing to see and he was really been going from. yes i think from the signal one through four pm. so now we're going to have an all english final being hosted in the city
6:01 pm
of madrid we know that you spend a lot of time there live there have time to sets of english fans descending on the city is it ready for that well. you know it's obviously the spurs coach super excited about it maria madrid is a big footballing city of course and you know they're well used to hosting big events not so long ago we had the you know the couple you put out towards the argentinian you know big match that took place in madrid and also real madrid and let me go madrid are well used to hosting big teams you know so i think this city will be more prepared for it also this stadium actually isn't dying time it's near the airport on the outskirts of the city so it'll be kind of easier to kind of we'll say control the fans in a sort of more controlled environment but first and foremost this is going to be an exciting affair first in just find that well first final between two english clubs and in a decade and we have to focus on the fact that this is going to be a big exciting match june first. i think is a much nicer. a quick reminder now the top stories that we're
6:02 pm

6:05 pm
a europe of stark contrasts last week about a thousand fashion sympathizers gapes to farm salutes and clashed with riot police in milan this information campaigns are said to be running at full tilt and commission president john told you because warned that if nationalist parties on the margins of the right and left take the upper hand it would mean the end of liberal democracy and free society so on issues ranging from migration to rule of law or security and sovereignty our panelists have plenty to argue about something insulters a dutch m.e.p. and first vice president of the alliance of liberals and democrats for europe she's a member of several parliamentary committees including civil liberties. dominic was a member of the polish parliament for the ruling law and justice party he sits on the foreign and e.u. affairs committees john lennon has been a member of the european parliament for twenty years with a progressive alliance of socialists and democrats and is well known for his support for a federal europe max crys vice chairman of the f.t.
6:06 pm
the i'll tell it evil third license and the german state of saxony and number three in the party's federal list for the european elections that's our panel. before we take questions from our invited audience including members of civil society groups i'm going to ask each of our politicians to set out to very briefly because of european future they'd like to see sophie and so can i ask you to start us off on a minute thank you very much and good evening everybody. we are living in a world of triumph china that's becoming stronger political global actor a world where we see big forces like facebook while way apple who are actually more powerful sometimes than states and that is why we need a very strong united and unifying europe in order to stand up to these forces
6:07 pm
and to protect the our quality of life our way of life but the second thing i would like to say is just as important this is not just about a strong europe it's also about europe as a community of values and those values are equality equal rights for all and not everybody believes in that and i think this is very much on the ballot on the twenty third to twenty sixth of may and i will be campaigning for equal rights for gender equality for freedom of conscience for bt i write a europe that it's for everybody ok thank you very much you want to united europe you want a strong europe but voter turnout has gone down in every single european parliament election since they began it's going to be different this time. we don't know i think first of all we see in the polls that support for europe is actually going up and the fact that people are critical is not a bad thing it's a good thing if it means that people are taking ownership of europe to do that
6:08 pm
downhill jerry yes we'll see whether that trend will continue and of course the turnout has to go up if we have the right to vote we should use it because that's how we we keep the mockery. a life. this is an organization the european parliament has failed time and again to connect to ordinary people breaks it is proof of that and you know i don't think bricks it is proof of that we don't know that the analysis on what breaks it really means is still out because i think you know the reasons why people voted for breaks that are maybe very much connected to the reasons why american people voted for trump and incidentally to turn out if you're in. their free time you can maybe you can hear me out the american turnout at the american elections is not very high either but it's clear that people are facing a choice of the kind of world they want to live in some people would like to go back in time take rights away from people you know end equality and pluralism and
6:09 pm
free democracy and that is really what's at stake here for a. dominant touching skin kind of europe would like to see i'd like to see christian europe christian europe as a faith as a law as a culture of like to see the europe which was built on the christian values this is who you are this is what i said previously that christianity is our d.n.a. and it's not about our faith only it's about the ages of of of the previous generations is who you are and from the christianity comes out the hold the whole culture roman law greek philosophers this is this is what was built on christianity so what i don't or and. as a new structure of the society. without christianity i don't like people messing around like mr soros he's playing with the nations he's financing organizations who are absolutely anti christian some agree that equality is very important that's why
6:10 pm
i don't want i don't want to see churches like twenty four churches within week burned in and france i don't want to see that so that's the only symbol right that's the symbol so i want christian roots i think safety even to europe but we got the point you pride yourself on christian values that's right but your attitudes to immigration run directly counter to christian values don't they at least in the eyes of the pope the catholic pope jesus is present he said in the migrants and refugees who seek safety and a dignified life in a new land it is christ he said we knocked on our door hungry thirsty a stranger naked under certain degree and imprisoned when he better be not knocking on your door but if you were let him in because the difference between illegal immigration and refugee is a legal difference by the international law i keep repeating it for the last three or five years we don't mind to take the refugees if they submit their documents and ask for permission to be told that we don't mind nothing's changed in twenty years
6:11 pm
of free poland you don't want muslim immigrants they don't want illegal migration and you don't want her slim so you're talking about legal hristian no no no no no you want to distance we don't want illegal migration if it's christian if it's mostly if it's hindu or it's not believe or we don't want you legal migration we don't want people on the boats coming without documents i would if i thought there's a little let me here let me let me finish so if they want to come to poland they can apply didn't submit the documents but what is happening now is just a madness which is again something rules and regular you say our soul is alive and the west's soul is dead and that's right suddenly your expert on cells what makes you the keeper of the sacred truth. first of all just quickly yes because i'm a roman catholic soul the spirit is very important to me obviously this is just the picture. through fas that eighty five percent of polish societies catholic and we cherish our tradition telling the rest of europe how to live by we're not telling anyone we want you saying it's devalues the real value for europe we value our road
6:12 pm
into christianity not about beautiful words john and your vision of europe these intimate imo roman catholic myself i have a totally different vision of polish churches there for the slogan of yours diversity and unity unity and diversity diversity makes us rich in any aspect and i think we live to visit very good sixty years of european integration has for us this peace and freedom and now in these years we have to secure well being and security so i think that we have to complete the common market in a digital europe it's really a set we have to be fair up in the social aspects i think it's candor that some people don't pay taxes france normal people have to pay their thanks to look on the gulf like amazon and google they don't pay their taxes as absolutes candid and certain sustainable logically i mean it's
6:13 pm
a must to be live over the planetary limits and i think climate protection is one of the key issues in next year's all right you've said. you've said also in the past the two want a strong and sovereign europe to defend the union's interests and values in the globalized world is what you've said but the e.u. already has enormous power as the world's largest trading bloc and it's not using it for that is it is not defending values basic values you know a lot about human rights for instance in egypt continue to sign trade deals with you don't use the power that you have to use right in the only family economically rio really a giant the biggest market in the verge better behave like i don't think that here we are twelve and indeed we have to really improve. in our political let's say outlook towards diverge and really. brooking we sell our values and our principles but i think that you also see iraq in agreements with
6:14 pm
libya saying your rights migrants and you have them incarcerated for years in holding centers where they're abused and beaten up you know look do you i'm going to out of those nine and a good fifty percent of. human aids is coming from you we're not as good as we should be but let's say don't work to earn it the next legislature make it a priority through that it's all about words it's all right isn't it isn't it true because i am i am also object strongly tow to those deals who are not in line with our values and i think part of the reason why europe is concluding these seals is because some governments like your government refuse to participate in the common the site of the migration. policy and you're you'd actually you're hearing well you know the nation is you have you know sole income you have youthful words but you you don't actually put them into practice and it is true when you say that on the one hand you basically want to create a theocracy and christianity has to be christian and at the same time this is
6:15 pm
democratic ok everyone can tell you just the one so if you're going to tell you that i don't like my answer and then i briefly and then i go to your mother did you want to say anything else don't just what i'm saying is our country is very open we are democratic country everyone is free to believe or not to believe whatever he wants what i'm saying is as a lawyer as a polish as a christian when i see it throughout the ages when i see the history and what i see the state of the youth being in you now i do believe that the real value is not the it's not out there and google it's roman law right there's a very few laws if you have to really hard to get into that later max cry your vision of europe you know in a minute the first thing is that we distinguish between europe and the union europe it's a place of a lot of virus of diversity and variety of peoples and cultures on a very small room globally and that's makes you a rich. and we well you the riot says governments of all those
6:16 pm
peoples and countries we have in europe on the other hand there is a common ground of my colleague told us which is the tradition of a free philosophy in rome and more. and of course we have to do something in common and every serious european politics with reliable has to balance our trip between the acceptance of serenity and off the diversity of cultures on the one hand and on the other hand to look what is needed to do in a joint way and what we see today is that almost all parties we have in germany except us you know only say more brussels and more unionist and we say no it's not the answer we have to look what is better solve it and better government on a regional level or a and that is our point you've said in the past that europe needs to rediscover and value its cultural heritage and identity why some europeans
6:17 pm
do some some dough said choice countries move forward that is true but countries involved the world evolve yes but you you only can involve onion know where you come from you need to you need a common ground to common ground you want to go back to days of strong nation states too strong we want the first sense of the truth isn't it was felt that isn't the first thing that these these nationalist extremist parties the friends i hate you know when they get to power we want in fact women's rights is attacked b.t.i. right the first is attacking other generals that is allegedly to mr know women's rights women this and i groom and try and like. can we can we women that arrives and and gay rights are now under attack because of the muslim immigration and you know walk a straight narrow view under attack. women's rights and arrives in countries like poland and countries undersea econ trees you don't have attacks on the streets
6:18 pm
on gays and on women force now you have it you have it in country it's very i have a very high are having their nothing once they're governor great and when it's right we are we have a line and we really. poland is a free country germany is a free country france's free country every country is a free country the european union is the first let me you you are too interventionist let the others talk and it's better than i can you know deal being union is a free assembly of nations all of them had to join all over the really. put down the loyalty to the principle. decision in common so i don't see this sudden. for the deck in the last century usa my nation is to create this by nation is to free is ok some months. ok long to your new one not only tonight but what you
6:19 pm
write and what you talk to i'll tell you i want to tell us i wonder and i want to take the decision on your little bit simpler life i want to talk this out i'm not sure it serves not doing both and you need to talk just on the subject of migration i'd like to continue with it for a few moments because not only is it one of the biggest issues facing the european union but it's arguably one of its biggest failures isn't it in the way what what chance that the next parliament will do better than this one in setting out a policy that can command a consensus because you don't have action actually parliament actually reached consensus on the entire assignment package another migrant it is actually to cancel where it's completely so no member countries in the council that you don't chose are to revisit this of the liberal yes i'm going to and that's exactly something you can sell to that time she was. saying we cannot just let the scientists that you know the council has become somewhat of a. of
6:20 pm
a kind of black box everything stops there nothing moves forward whereas the parliament has actually been able to find broad consensus lot including the extremist but the socialist liberals the p.p. greens i mean there was a. brought to life very very bright resolution yeah ok so i'm going to let you come in let me let me tell you how it's like ok they set up the fire and now they're trying to use the water to to set it down complete nonsense ok thank you very much for. joining us not in the film but they're going to be months much variance in the european parliament socialist liberals so and the council is socialist and they have all the tools they can set up if the conservatives are there is no nine eleven letters i don't know i don't want to give you a chance to tell me so that it's only my jury to see for years liberals in p.p. and socialists they have all the tools to set up to solve the problem but they
6:21 pm
can't they do not know oh i'm gillum merkel was looking for cheap labor she didn't want to help anyone and then she found out that she they don't want to work they don't want to learn the language so they sed she found out i have to send them back so that's why she said yeah that's what if you use help you least send them saying i'm out is just a tiny one so that they have just read it however you want to listen to such nonsense but ok that's the look for someone who is the average mom is it like this it is sort of the angular voice having the immigrants for cheap labor. finished or is it i think we had a problem in two fifteen to sixteen because rate of boy. deval and syria boys in our neighborhood and nobody could see that there are hundreds thousands of people walking out of the misery but in the meantime if you look at what we have achieved we have a whole package of measures we have no dented fixation everybody who comes in the
6:22 pm
you is it and he fired we have. worked on our borders respond takes we have done the package with africa the countries most of the poverty mike and scum so i think sit up in the ocean business alone yeah. yeah but i don't. know you know me and the sex and also for a very successful policy because you have not the migration flows of four years ago you are of i don't know anybody who are doing vices in the middle east and poverty in africa you will have my ration or the time and we have two minutes together and that place it is you are like you got me going i don't let me go to your money i write to you really get. water in your mother's grave you know i want to get rid of mexico and i'm going to see if you are you are you describe to be correct like these are the local artists are our journey across our lives there was sitting at the white arm for us all that we mean
6:23 pm
a lion so we did lose just like max quite you saw the typical eyes of the german left frontex has increased in numbers of of migrants over the mediterranean sea and then our friend mathilde so when he came and closed the borders and closed the course he stopped migration the balkan routes all stopped but. i don't know why his marital wouldn't be chancellor anymore if he didn't stop the migration and two thousand and fifteen that means or man and and so i mean you did the job what do you know tell us is a great success of the european union to. let me for months let me answer niceties let me pick up steam i like to think if the u.p.a. in union would have taken. troll over to hungary and borders and ports we would not have stopped immigration at all that means our side solves the problems that you created by by take the migrants to europe because syria is not our neighbor ok look some. things i agree with parts which are said but i disagree with one thing as
6:24 pm
long as we know that there are thirty five thousand people dead in the mediterranean we cannot talk about a success if we see mr orbit starving migrants to death and locking them up in containers i do not consider that it's true liaison office and so slow maybe i can finish that can and then i think the new things that offend us fake news ok well let's all go and visit then signaling to of been at about one forty second you never finish i wasn't i wasn't aware that mr orban is running lebanon i think he's running hungry and talking about the idea until general build a fence migrants or people in europe make this microphone literally needs migration for them and we need to we need to control mannish migration and we need to be honest about it and what we are doing is building fortress europe which is just the equivalent to european equivalent of trumping all ok and i think it is true a lot of problems than migration usually do not use one although i would like to move on to our first question from our invited representatives of civil society
6:25 pm
storyline from human rights watch what is it you'd like to ask these very much. thank you very much in europe the most important political lesson of the twentieth century was that. political intolerance can lead to the end of democracy and to horrific crimes now today's europe we hear exactly the same rhetoric coming from far right politicians attacking minorities attacking migrants attacking. anyone they can get their hands on we hear anti-semitism we hear islamophobia so i am going to ask you a very specific question in minute touches he mr factions he said just hold on if you can just be quiet for five seconds before you take power i would like to know what the parties on the right think about history did you learn absolutely nothing from twentieth century european history absolutely nothing you mr cross said
6:26 pm
learning our history is very important and you sit here and you repeat the phrases that we heard in the one nine hundred twenty nine hundred thirty s. it's outrageous now is your question mr touch and here we go you want a christian europe where does that leave those of us who are christian and we second class citizens we medical experiments what do you want with us and to you on the other side the left what are you going to do about these people what do you know offer the public to show these people for what they are and just do something about the mad men this time so we don't have a repeat of last time they were in touch inskeep ok so the christian europe. it's not muslim euro i don't want islamization i'm not the only do you want me to answer how you want to answer no i listen to you so listen to me now i don't want islamization in europe i don't want terrorism and crushing landslide in your dreams are things let him he did listen to you so let's not go to the question it wasn't
6:27 pm
a question wasicka was are trying to answer the question i don't want i don't want islamization of europe i don't want terrorism in europe there is no christians who are shouting christ is the law before they blow themselves up by the every single terrorist attack is is followed by a lot of bar this is just a fact and christianity this isn't true nancy ok let me let me say what i think so . what i said every country is a free and democratic country you can be a muslim hindu nonbeliever i don't care but for me my value is christianity and this is my program as a politician and then the nation is deciding that's that's how democracy works so that is why our government was elected that's why our governments are elected in hungary in sweden in other countries so let's people decide what is important for them for me johnny and the christian values are important let people decide and
6:28 pm
don't tell them how the country should look like because this is what you think it's called democracy let people vote. was there was a question directly there are times when you're winning when you really respect by your emotion not doing the same for a very christian and every second please we have no interest in joining that was asked. would you like to answer this i think what you call democracy which which i actually mean is the rule of the majority and i think the essence of democracy is that we also take care of minorities eleanora t. views so that is something very different and in my europe people are free to hold any religion that they have and they will not be and they will all this is what i say they will all be treated every presented equally by the public authorities and that's a big difference and it also means that there are that there is equal treatment of men and women there is i have an area with equal treatment well actually you are
6:29 pm
attacking women's rights like for example their sexual and reproductive health and right and i'll answer that because i want to animals up for human reproductive animals i represent have finished people are having a babies they having a lot of not reproduction extensions and things not a fair go. i'll try and answer to mr storyline i think one of the mistakes that we have made over the years is that whenever a pro european centrist moderate forces are talking about europe they're talking about europe in very technocratic terms about internal markets which i wholeheartedly support and a common currency we don't have to gets to actually stand up for the europe of values and i stand for a europe of progressive values of equality has been have i should different values yes well you know in my europe you're going to look also like titles you lose and what i want to bet yes you're going to i'm real are you people i don't work together how are you going to work together because one of the duties of
6:30 pm
politicians is to compromise how you can work together i'm very open but i'm not open for full madness to me the illegal migration which is called refuge refugees they are not refugees i keep repeating the refugees the person who flee to the first safe country from the country of the conflict not flying throughout the globe so if we are talking about the rule of law and the rules are broken and the words are used in and says in a different way how can you how can cooperate on how can you respect the rule of law when you want to let go of migration is not the rigi by the law one word one word because my europe's not just europe of equality but also the europe of diversity where everybody has a place because diversity is exactly what his mate europe the best most prosperous freest and safest continent in the world is not a very it's not that so you know i'm going out some just going to go back to and say you know and by the very briefly very briefly are you encouraged by anything
6:31 pm
you heard. i'm sorry but i think it's very revealing that mr chance he refused to answer the question about what he would do with non christians in his christian europe yes i think that explains the i believe everything really what they were it's very clear to me have heard this rhetoric in the one nine hundred twenty s. in the one hundred thirty s. in europe we know where your talk leads you can shake your head all you want but we've seen it before we've been here before and europe and sick of it and we're not putting up with men like this we're like ok we're going to learn much all right next question comes from alexandrina my mom which from the european civic forum what would you like to us please thank you thank you. in today's europe. raising inequalities fear of the future and a growing number of people who feel left behind these are undermining democracy and trust in a common future and progressive populations forces are surfing on these feelings
6:32 pm
with quite success i would say they they and so this failure of democracy to deliver access to rights for all with less democracy because they build collective identities based on exclusion. and they try to shrink and to. shut up the space for dissent for democratic checks and balances for civil society for media for akademi and so on and so forth we come to a question but my question is addressed to the progressive count. what kind of policies do we need to get out of this deadlock because it's not enough to say that we are pro europeans alongside what you said in the beginning what kind of policies we need to bring equality and solidarity and to make this european project great for all ok draw a line and. receive all our societies and even between states the
6:33 pm
strong get stronger and the rica stay weak or get weaker the rich get richer and the other stay poor the will do well fronts and therefore i think it's the big task of the next years to put the social dimension of our european politics in the center we have to have standards for it to countries whether it's minimum wage whether it's access to health whether it's proper pension system what if they don't meet china's standards what we had thirty years to get conversions in the monetary area it is possible to get the same under social there is some pressure now to cut off funding to those countries that don't abide by some of the rules are you in favor of that you know we have to do in the next financial framework a lot of funds for child care for youth unemployment for really helping countries to raise the standards and not to lower them but i think the fragmentation is
6:34 pm
social fragmentation in our society is to root for populism for a freshman and then this goes against immigrants it goes against minorities and at the ends it goes against everything they don't like their government or of. because the european union so i think technically the root causes of fragmentation in society is the big issue of the next let you folks cry yes the first thing is we don't solve problems in economic problems by centralization and more rules from brussels so that we solve it by competition and by giving back the economic decisions back to people who are the economic actors that's the first thing you can't have a common minimum wage in romania and in germany the same in one so you have to have different solutions and the first thing the sex the next that i wonder a little bit that the member of the social democrats who introduced agenda twenty ten in germany and to make a lot of reforms exactly the other way around is now proposing social politics to
6:35 pm
peace party and poland introduced to social politics as a market economy for the right man and your partner the p.o. platform of double top to introduce a lot of corruption and and social policy so well or badly rosina my tailbone any best of the lot of or else i speak about the new era well and another valid already and strong and weak girl i mean we've got it we don't need more regulation and rustles we need more flexibility more competition and more market economy for small businesses and not for to pick multinational conference that are your friends and your supporters there's a long way very briefly the only way to move on now one of the key principles and european treaty is economic and social cohesion so we have a big market the market is competition there we have to head to small and medium sized companies that is another problem but. that competition over the years the
6:36 pm
big get bigger stronger and stronger huge disparities are there and secretary engineer found we have to buy do we have politics politics is there to correct a failure that is not doing it for me not doing it and you had a chance. we need to have a social cohesion pulling see that's what could or a tower my new i'm going or i'm going to move on because we can ask one question well because since this thing is we're running out of time you so why you need to move on if you believe in the nation state you know this one thousand nine hundred three invention to be the answer to the twenty first century challenges do you think that nation states are actually up to the multinationals like apple if a country like ireland for example has to be obliged by the european commission to living thirteen billion euros in texas never mind microsoft and facebook and all the others i mean that's the world and you know four and national tax revenue service for the multinational you can't can you just said that in those who are
6:37 pm
listening to other people don't you if you if for the big multinationals the national tax revenue service the actual seven have an issue with respect. alex cross you want the knowledge you are the very are a very very long if you're going to finish my sentence please for a while so you know i just won the nazi nationals you know national tax revenue service i r like snack and are just shopping around in europe so if we want you to stand up against the big multinationals and make them pay taxes in europe then we have to do that together as a european ok that's why you haven't done it yet and since it marks crowded first thing else you can't explain switzerland on the base on your theory because the people in switzerland they have high wages and they have a high living standards and they have to multinational and country and their product into a max of state pay taxes that's a first or second even in the european union they don't pay taxes so obviously something goes wrong with it in your your large space and the point is i agree that you got a customs union need
6:38 pm
a joint customs and trade policy otherwise it doesn't work but we don't need a joint label laure we don't need a joint minimum wage and we don't need a joint novel ok it's all right nice try thank you. thank you for that we have to move on now and we're going to take two questions together first from richard gardner from global witness and then leo hoffman x. down from transparency international richard will you go first please thank you very much for the opportunity to speak today my question concerns somewhere where europe is very integrated just the financial system europe is one of the largest global markets in the world this means money small of the world is flowing in and out of europe on a daily minute by minute basis that means a high likelihood that the e.u. financial system is helping to fund human rights abuses to fuel fire mental destruction globally also to inadvertently or potentially intentionally funding are fueling and corrupt citizen corruption and also money laundering this european
6:39 pm
parliament did try to do it out of good work and under the guidance of the commission to tackle that but what is your vision of how this parliament can act on this in particular to make sure that european. it does not fuel environmental destruction which is something critical at this stage should have seen the u.n. report about species this week and also the recent i.p.c.c. one point five degrees and also to make sure that your money laundering which has been an issue and has quote that ok i'm going to i'm going now because we've been taking another question at the same time leo huffman axtell your question please for transparency international thank you well in recent years we've not only seen one topic on that you've seen we've not only seen people speak about migration or using the issue for their political goals we've also seen a steady erosion and very very inger ocean of the rule of law and of the macwrite the institutions in the member states we've seen direct attacks on the independence of the judiciary we've seen governments threatening media freedom intimidating civil society shockingly we've even seen two journalists murdered for their
6:40 pm
investigations into corruption the condemnation however from political leaders in brussels has only come if it were governments in the member member states that were ruled by the opposing parties and actually this is not just the case in the so-called law and justice government in poland it's also the case with the conservatives and hungary it's the case with the socialists and malta and it's also the case with the prime minister by bush and this conflict of interest was the liberals in the czech republic so my question to you is what do you intend in the next legislature to do about this and i would mainly ask the parties that are expected to. actually do some of these reforms in government thank you ok thank you for your question or for your opinion it is true that the free media were interested in the past in poland i am the best example i used to work as a director of the polish public television and i was fired. when civic platform won
6:41 pm
the election just because my views are conservative i was a member of the party and i was fired so i'm the best example you're right liberals just draw me away i lost my job so you're right the free media where interest in poland in the past not anymore judiciary the difference between german system and probably system of judiciary is that minister of justice in germany appointing the judges and in poland minister of justice cannot appoint the judges are true. ok by the parliament but they didn't those in rule but the decision making by political decision is making by the minute let me let me. let me finish so we need an answer on tackling corruption clean corruption ok money laundering who was the one who was invited to the european poland parliament two weeks ago madam called last stop from the open dialogue foundation and we found out that she is into the
6:42 pm
money laundering from russia and she was invited by the socialist to be reported european parliament ok same very much as a society. ok this is very briefly because we're running out a giant mandation very bad i think and probably the one thing that the just the only thing that we will ever agree on is that indeed the fact that the european commission has only dared to target poland. addressing the fundamental rights violations and the rule of law violations is because there is the law and justice party is not a member of the e.p. family or any of the other families and that is why i was very honored to be repartee or of a proposal for a brought mechanism to uphold democracy the rule of law and fundamental rights in other words the so-called article two of the treaty values and i am very confident that even if it took some time for the european commission and the european council to come to the. realization that we need such. mechanism i think it will
6:43 pm
materialize in the next in the next period and that meet all the member states will be set on the basis of the same criteria on a regular annual basis ok the council of europe decided in february an offshoot of the council of europe press freedom in europe is now in a worse state than at any time since the cold war how worrying is that joe line very briefly very briefly we're running out of time it's absolutely boring because those in power in some countries try to undermine the freedom of press and we have been on top third in new media where fake news is on a daily basis from morning till morning so we're really in danger to losing ground of our democracies by mechanisms that undermine the really spirit of a decent and really true dialogue and argument is undermined by
6:44 pm
those mechanisms from governments in power as well as other powers outside the e.u. right to money political public markets cross i was worried about this state of press freedom in europe i'm very worried about because what we see now is the attempt of the governments to censor to social networks and to social media and for instance show lines party introduced of it's fair to set source because that's the sort of censorship lore in germany that leads facebook and twitter to to to to block a lot of. speech. you make facebook which is a private owned company to be sender the net for which is shameful we have more blocked users of facebook and twitter in germany then we have in russia and you sit here and tell me you are very it about freedom of press and freedom of expression
6:45 pm
that is a lie it is typical for your heart even to see. typical for your partner christians the point is that that freedom of opinion is now mostly on the internet they are good people debate and discuss and governments mostly left wing liberal governments especially the party of july and they introduce laws to undermine the freedom of the bait and the internet and that's very shameful and this is something to the end immediately if you get the possibility to do so you could bring get through bring freedom to our line you know you have twenty seconds are you shamed by that not at all why not just about the hate speech is what are you really fall it's a speech being we guaranteed your freedom of speech structural flaw opinion but what we see on the internet is really beyond the red lines and you have to have measures to really limited all right we're going to have to leave that question there my thanks to our for panelists and they are questioners here in the audience
6:46 pm
and to all of you for watching don't forget there's a longer version of this debate which you can find online for now from all of us on the team here at the european parliament in brussels goodbye thank you thank you. sixteen thousand euros for a. time yes a new plane is nine months pregnant. she's a surrogate mother carrying a child for foreign parents and it's perfectly legal. for many women it's the

6:50 pm
sorry kelly welcome to the program but european union is urging iran to stick by its commitments under the nuclear deal agreed with world powers in two thousand and fifteen the statement was given ahead of the ongoing e.u. summit in the romanian city of seaview where the twenty seven e.u. heads of state are gathering to outline a new strategic agenda for the european union in a joint declaration european leaders stated that they rejected ultimatums from tehran but vowed to fight to save the wrong nuclear deal. and joining me now from c.b. you is you have used to so what are we to make of the e.u.'s joint statement on this matter. well this mutual declaration by the european signatories the u.k. france and germany the keeley is an efforts to keep those vital deal a success of european diplomacy to a life
6:51 pm
a number of leaders arrived here this morning and reiterated how important this deal is how good it is for stability for security in the region that if there is the policy that the core policy of the european union to seek. closer contacts to seek a dialogue via diplomacy and that this deal is exactly what are you policy is about but of course the decision that a partial withdrawal from tehran is now putting that deal in jeopardy is a big concern here for leaders ok and. just give our viewers some background on what exactly has been happening happening with the nuclear deal in the past couple of days and then we'll get your reaction there after alison. patience has run out read the headlines of iran's newspapers president hassan rouhani said the five nations still party to the nuclear deal have two months to start delivering on their commitments or tehran could turn its back on the pact. under the twenty fifty
6:52 pm
nuclear deal iran agreed to let international atomic energy agency monitors into their nuclear facilities can only enrich uranium for civilian purposes in return economic sanctions on the country were lifted. the international atomic energy agency says iran has been meeting its end of the bargain but that didn't prevent the u.s. withdrawing from the deal last year and reinstating sanctions now iran is threatening to enrich its iranian closer to weapons grade levels the move is threatening to escalate a confrontation between tehran and washington secretary of state mike pompei o made an impromptu visit to iraq this week accusing iran of posing a threat to u.s. soldiers in the country. just days ago the u.s. the ploy the carrier to the persian gulf the trump administration policies to exert maximum pressure on iran and their sanctions are hitting hard iran's oil exports are down and their currency has taken
6:53 pm
a dive things are getting tight for tehran. so as we can see there georg a lot of moving parts when it comes to this deal just give us the view of the european union's view i mean where does all of this leave the e.u. toward iran. other than lemon really for the european union is that they have a hard time convincing economic partners of iran the big companies in europe that they should continue to invest because doing so they are facing u.s. sanctions and that is something that really bites for most businesses in europe because they always have close ties with the u.s. and that is the diplomatic dilemma the european union is in the fact that iran has now made this move exposes this style emma they have made the created some mechanisms but they don't just don't go far enough so that iran can say we have enough benefits to fulfill our part it's a real tricky one this one absolutely and therefore it's really overshadowing this
6:54 pm
issue summit in romania where you are right now but we also know that iran isn't the only topic on the table so walk us through what else they are discussing. a german chancellor angela merkel arrived here saying the world is not asleep we've got to stick together and send out a strong message from the summit here so the idea here is to send out. a so-called c.d.u. declaration that's the town here in central romania with ten commitments all around the environment addressing key issues such as migration where the e.u. wants to show that they do stick together they also will talk about diplomatic successes of bald economic successes for you since the eastern expansion a lot of european money one fifth of the e.u. budget has gone into a regional structure for instance take a look at this town of former not part of east eastern europe. of the
6:55 pm
communist world it has really flourished. however that does not mean all the problems are gone i could took a look with my colleague barbara ways lead a roma settlement where things are still the highly problematic one of the poorest parts in europe. cosman wants to get in here into this new house which looks so nice and clean because till now he and his five siblings have been living here in an old hard made from wooden sticks and clay this is one of the many roma settlements in romania always on the outside of the villages it's a small miracle that houses are being built here at all i'm going to cut they want i tried with the bank but they didn't give me a loan. my salary is too small it's a lot of me i had no chance to do anything to that have any possibility that there's
6:56 pm
a. instead the money for the building materials comes from geneva should the founder of a german aid project out now how. she has been helping these roma communities around seabee you for more than ten years about one in three rumanians lives in poverty and the roma are the poorest of all. and was almost you have to be able to dream of that but leave room for small miracles because that's how it all happened i didn't want to accept things as they were here every time and it's up to. all the men have to help with the building work because jenny believes in learning to help yourself. because the idea of i don't look like they're the money comes from private donors in germany the european union also spends a lot of money in romania ten billion euros every year jenny had spectra c.p.u.
6:57 pm
she's not too keen on the e.u. funds the battle with local authorities spending them their corruption and lack of cooperation is too difficult. let's let them have a building of this nation maybe they should think about sending people from brussels to those countries to see who's responsible for inspecting projects and finding out where all the money goes. almost not some distance over all jenny things romania has profited immensely from being a member of the e.u. the infrastructure in the cities is much improved europe has also helped building schools and paying teachers but in roma settlements only one child in five is actually going to school for the praecox and the neighbors this has changed also the result of jenny's project. my daughter loves school i kept her at home for a while but she really wants to be in school. more than anything else education is the key to a better future for the roma communities in romania. and that was georg
6:58 pm
mathis our correspondent in romania for the e.u. summit with that report a pretty quick check now some other stories making news around the world north korea is continuing its weapons test with south korean authorities reporting two suspected short range missiles being launched from an operating base near p.r. . the launch follows in widely criticized on sunday when the north fired multiple projectiles with at least one believed to be a short range missile. vote counting is underway in south africa after the country's parliamentary elections early results show the ruling african national congress and lead the vote is the first barometer of public sentiment since president cyril ramaphosa replaced scandal hit jacob zuma last year. and the thai bay made famous by the hollywood movie the beach will reportedly remain closed to tourists for another two years maya bay was first shut down last june authorities hope that the additional time will allow coral and wildlife to recover from the
6:59 pm
damage caused by boats bringing thousands of day trippers. pope francis has issued a groundbreaking do law requiring all catholic priests and nuns to report clergy sex abuse and cover ups the problem to create covers abuse of children and adults it requires every catholic diocese in the world to set up simple and accessible systems for reporting abuse and to provide protections for people making believe important it also allows for suspected abuse to be reported directly to the vatican if need. be to jordan he has been seen a good she's a journalist joining us from rome so what exactly does this mean now going forward . well what it means is that all the priests and all the nuns and religious women within the church are now mandated to report. issues of sexual abuse as well
7:00 pm
as cover ups to the authorities now this is never been put in place before in such a law so they're mandated they have to do it and there are protections in place whistleblowers will be protected days a law in place now that says that all these claims will be dealt with confidentially this is to give those who i don't position to come forward the courage in order to do so and as you mentioned there will be a system or structure in place but all the diocese around the world to deal with it in terms of any medical assistance psychological its instance as well as any spiritual assistance obviously we are talking about the catholic church in order to deal with this issue so that really is what the groundbreaking new laws in place for using the word groundbreaking just walk us through first of all how significant this is and second of all why did this take so long. well i think this really was
7:01 pm
a reaction if you like or a follow up to that summit that i present at that summit that pope francis called for with the bishops from all around the world all corners of the globe where the catholic church is present work invited to them to discuss this one issue of sexual abuse and he made it very clear that this is a top priority for him and so in those discussions he said there were actions that going to be played he put in place and now you have these laws what's interesting to note is that these laws are made to be dealt with in terms of procedural issues and it's not a criminal issue does that leave that open the floodgates because it's not just about current pieces buzz as well as cases in the past because there's no a statute of limitations if you like it's really talking about all cases as well and i mean the way that this looks also if we just look at the criminal aspect of it it seems as if there is no obligation to actually report these cases to the authority is as well what are we to make of that well i think the victims or

survivor groups will not be pleased about that they want to see action taken in terms of civil laws in each country but the catholic church has always maintained that they can't do that because they have to consider situations in which the catholic church are persecuted of catholics are persecuted minority in that particular country or even where the church is in so because of that reason they don't make any situation mandatory for reporting to the police it's also interesting to note that their system in place talks about assistance in terms of psychology and spiritual as well as medical assistance but there's no reference to any financial compensation either so some issues that need the victims groups or will call into question all that said though we are finally seeing very concrete actions on behalf of the vatican and the pope in terms of dealing with this very troubling issue that has hit the church in the last few decades sima gupta and rome thank you. it's russia is marking the seventy fourth

7:32 pm
from slovakia is having there. it's almost impossible to find an apartment here in brussels. for whatever real estate agent of a has to offer she finds takers immediately this one for instance sixty square meters for seven hundred fifty euros if it was for sale it might cost some three thousand euros per square meter virtually an affordable for the average wage of one thousand euros in slovakia's capital if. when people buy an apartment here they go into debt for the rest of their lives or for thirty years at least they take up mortgages with all the risks involved that's another myth thank you but here in bratislava wages are a bit higher but even so to rent or buy an apartment here in the center at least two wage earners have to go in on it together. some people who rent even live three to a flat if the landlord allows it might. as
7:33 pm
proto slava grows and booms many slovaks are moving to neighboring austria. just a ten minute drive takes them out of the big city and across the border into the broad flat austrian countryside. here in two thousand and thirteen the slow but a family made their dream of a house and garden come true. so new work says a teacher in bratislava well her husband martin has a business in the tourism sector. now they and their children are austrian residents the cost of living was another important factor. it's because you're comparing the capital there's a fairly big city with the countryside it's like the edge of the world in austria here in those that i think. most of the people in kids they have no problem with the slovaks but some are uneasy with the rapid growth of the village.
7:34 pm
one resident says strangers only used to come here during the africa harvest festival. this lately can get me on the if the rural character is disappearing more and more. integration is of course not all that easy if you've got one thousand nine hundred kids a residence trying to integrate fifteen hundred slovaks. it's slow going but it's working here this. skate always gets your legs. it's working even better for the soccer club. the slower as sun heinrich is on the team the slovaks are also active in village life so kids say it is becoming a multicultural community. i think sports are a good way to integrate to get the kids playing with each other. and i don't think the younger generation the generation of our children will even be debating this issue in the years to come. help. to debate the bidding and.
7:35 pm
well other austrian villages no longer have enough kids for one soccer team kids a has enough for two. has no problem finding new recruits he can't say exactly how many are slovaks. but really there's a reason for what it's an enormous advantage because so many more kids are here and that means a lot more talented kids in the four years i've been coaching the team the football club has grown immensely he could box and that's a huge advantage not just for the team but for the community if in fact you know if you do what your reason for taking. in kids say austria europe is growing together on the playing field says sonya slow but the border that was once the iron curtain between austria and slovakia is fading into oblivion. while eastern european countries like slovakia have already joined the e.u.

other nations such as albania are eager for membership but a major hurdle is standing in their way the country has become one of europe's leading hubs for the production and trade of illegal drugs albanian authorities say they are cracking down on the mafia and are keen to promote their success to the international press well our reporter traveled to the mediterranean coast of albania to see just how big an impact their efforts are really happening. we're accompanying albanian border police on patrol in the mediterranean they want to show us they're getting tough on the mafia which controls the drug trade here. because the italian police are better equipped they're helping the albanians fight the drug smugglers. the officers fly down this fishing boat.
7:37 pm
they search the cabin but find nothing suspicious. bosler are not that we've had smugglers who had heroin in car tires or oil tanks building up to get the last time we discovered ten kilos of heroin and i don't mean to brag but in the last two years the police and its partners have become more effective and reduced the drug trade to a minimum. probably they were cleared of all it but the numbers tell another story in twenty seventeen year old called the e.u. agency for law enforcement cooperation listed albania as europe's biggest producer of cannabis and a major drug trafficking harb. albania is one of the poorest countries in europe. here the average monthly income is around three hundred thirty euros. yet the capital tirana is full of luxury cars. and the construction industry is booming.
7:38 pm
where is all the money coming from. journalist our town hard job accompanies us to villages north have to run a better known for their contract killers he's the only investigative journalist in albania who reports on the mafia's involvement in drug trafficking it's a wonder he's still alive. here furniture stores suddenly spring up on isolated country roads. were among those you know it will be here to many of these shops are used to store and process drugs the record production of cannabis in two thousand and sixteen means that for no crime gangs no need to cultivate anymore they have enough in stores. which are registers our presence with the local mafia boss just to be on the safe side. to make sure that nothing happens to him the
7:39 pm
journalist reports on all forty one clans equally in his t.v. documentaries there are always at war with each other here is where their deadline . why just says the whole country is really run by the mafia. against us from our in the wages of albanian police officers are far too low compared to the bribes they receive from the crime gangs. under the current conditions you can't wage a serious war against organized crime. from time to time they'll catch a few small fry but the guys pulling the strings will get off scot free. but albanian authorities claim the opposite they take us for a ride in a helicopter to show was that the marijuana fields are all gone. and they introduce us to the special task force which fights organized crime but we can't show the investigators faces on screen. we had more than one hundred people
7:40 pm
arrested out of these operations conducted by the spurs the task force now did not say that they were just lower and soldiers there were not there were due to some of these groups but when we asked about investigations into corrupt politicians and their links to the mafia his replies were evasive. at a secret location in switzerland we met up with drew tens of gunny he was a drug investigator in albania until twenty seventeen when he discovered that the country's then interior minister signed mir to he really had mafia connections and his cousins even used the minister's official car to smuggle drugs. but when's that ghani passed on this information he's the one who got arrested do you think it was the toughest time in my life who i'm of the accusations that i was
7:41 pm
a traitor made my life a living hell from the balkans who home and then the threats began it's against my family and i had to leave albania to protect my children. their lives were endangered by the mafia. a mafia which still has the full support of the government mafia. using a drone are ten hard judge shows us where marijuana is still grown. here at the edge of the forest it's hard to spot. albania is making efforts to fight the drug trade. but until the link between politicians and the mafia is broken it's a battle the country is unlikely to win. for animal lovers pets are a source of unconditional love and companionship life just wouldn't be the same without their four legged friends but for some people the cost of tearing for their

background how we got here on this we have a quick report to show our viewers and then i'll get your reaction there after. patience has run out read the headlines of iran's newspapers president hassan rouhani said the five nations still party to the nuclear deal have two months to start delivering on their commitments or tehran could turn its back on the pact. under the twenty fifty nuclear deal iran agreed to let international atomic energy agency monitors into their nuclear facilities and only enrich uranium for civilian purposes in return economic sanctions on the country were lifted. the international atomic energy agency says iran has been meeting its end of the bargain but that didn't prevent the u.s. withdrawing from the deal last year and reinstating sanctions now iran is threatening to enrich uranium closer to weapons grade levels the move is
7:53 pm
threatening to escalate a confrontation between tehran and washington secretary of state mike peo made an impromptu visit to iraq this week accusing iran of posing a threat to u.s. soldiers in the country just days ago the u.s. the ploy the carrier to the persian gulf the trump administration policies to exert maximum pressure on iran and their sanctions are hitting hard iran's oil exports are down and their currency has taken a dive things are getting tight for to iran. so where does that leave the toward iran. of the difficulty for the e.u. really is to find a mechanism that would allow a business to continue with terror and they have created a mechanism that involves for instance the trade of food supplies but it does not involve for oil supplies it does not involve the big tech companies pick companies in europe who are deeply afraid of u.s.
7:54 pm
sanctions if they were to continue trade with iran and that really is the dilemma of the european union faces how they can resolve this in order to can keep enough on the table to convince the iranians to fulfill their part of the deal and aside from iran what else is at stake at today's summit. lots of unresolved issues of course you have the mike ration crisis where there's still a big row over the relocation of microphones although numbers have trucks dramatically and then you have the reform of the euro zone something the french president pushes for he also will talk today to e.u. leaders about the environmental agenda and many have said he will seek to get more other you members to join him seeing that the twin engine the german french twin engine hasn't really worked on the big reform ideas that the french president has put forward so lots on the agenda but also some positive things the e.u.
7:55 pm
will want to emphasize german chancellor angela merkel said we need to be innovative we need to be strong and we need to stick together and that is something a lot of leaders said and off of the family picture here in cabo on the marketplace they got a heroes while comes from great crowds took a boss in the crowds if you want with people cheering for the e.u. something even leaders don't experience every day mattis joining us from romania thank you. let's get a quick check now some other stories making news around the world north korea is continuing its weapons test with south korean authorities reporting two suspected short range missiles being fired from an operating base near pyongyang the new launch coincides with the visit of u.s. special representative on north korea to still. vote counting is underway in south africa after the country's parliamentary elections early results show the ruling
7:56 pm
african national congress in the lead the vote is the first barometer of public sentiment since the president. replaced scandal hit jacob zuma last year. now pope francis has issued a groundbreaking new law requiring all catholic priests and nuns around the world to report clergy sex abuse and cover ups the powerful to create covers abuse of both children and adults it requires every catholic diocese in the world to set up simple and accessible systems for reporting abuse and to provide protections for people making a report it also allows for suspected abuse to be reported directly to the vatican if needed. a pardon seem a good she is a journalist joining us from rome so sima what exactly does this mean now going forward. well what it means is that all the priests and all the nuns and religious women within the church are now mandated to report. issues of sexual abuse
7:57 pm
as well as cover ups to the authorities now this is never been put in place before in such a law so they're mandated they have to do it and there are protections in place for whistleblowers will be protected days a law in place now that says that all these claims will be dealt with confidentially this is to give those who i don't position to come forward the courage in order to do so and as you mentioned there will be a system or structure in place but all the diocese around the world to deal with it in terms of any medical assistance psychological its instance as well as any spiritual assistance obviously we are talking about the catholic church in order to deal with this issue so that really is what the groundbreaking new laws in place for using the word groundbreaking just walk us through first of all how significant this is and second of all why did this take so long. well i think this really was
7:58 pm
a reaction if you like or a follow up to that summit that our president did summit that pope francis called for with the bishops from all around the world all corners of the globe where the catholic church is present work invited to come to discuss this one issue of sexual abuse and he made it very clear that this is a top priority for him and so in those discussions he said there were actions that going to be played people in place and now you have these laws what's interesting to note is that these laws are need to be dealt with in terms of procedural issues and it's not a criminal issue that means that could open the floodgates because it's not just about current pieces buzz as well as cases in the past because there's no a statute of limitations if you like it's really talking about all cases as well and i mean the way that this looks also if we just look at the criminal aspect of it it seems as if there is no obligation to actually report these cases to the authorities as well what are we to make of that what i think the victims or
7:59 pm
survivor groups will not be pleased about that they want to see action taken in terms of civil laws in each country and the catholic church has always maintained that they can't do that because they have to consider situations in which the catholic church are persecuted all catholics are persecuted minority in that particular country or even where the church is in so because of that reason they don't make any situation mandatory for reporting to the police it's also interesting to note that their system in place talks about assistance in terms of psychology and spiritual as well as medical assistance and there's no reference to any financial compensation either so are some issues that need be victims groups or will call into question all that said though we are finally seeing very concrete actions on behalf of the vatican and the pope in terms of dealing with this very troubling issue that has hit the church in the last few decades sima gupta and rome thank you. now in champions league football there was
8:00 pm
a nother stunning come from behind victory in the semifinals this time london's tottenham broke the hearts of i axed from amsterdam public. has all the action for us now so what happened here well after of course very exciting match for liverpool in barcelona everyone thought this was going to be a more relaxing affair and it was far from a to say the least took an early lead will say after five minutes and then they went to up before at the half time break so had their funds thinking about their travel plans for the final in madrid but then tottenham hit back hard to go straight after half time and then st luc us mode out well he actually referred to the two goals for tottenham as well he out of the third and decisive goal in the very final minute of the match to steal victory and ensure and in the final because of course their tottenham two are going to be playing in their first european cup final and will be playing of course at liverpool and they were over the moon of course as you can imagine and they posted
8:01 pm
a pretty interesting video call it interesting because it's blatantly them having a good time in their singing their voices may not be as good as their first floor or that it's obviously nice to see them there over the moon delighted on their fans i have a good friend who's a ton fun and posted a video and it was hilarious because it seemed to have shocked she was about last minute goal now. their manager as well and was delighted obviously because you know all that hard work and all that effort that they've put in and is paying off at least so let's hear from him finally. a sentence if you have these no pain no gain and i think noose some amazing thing because all that therefore we made in the last five years. you know we knew. it was all worth it yes so. it was all worth it i mean really spectacular football
8:02 pm
that we're seeing in the champions league right now but you really have to kind of feel for i.x. and the fans today and the players they must really be just point oh my god so disappointed is is an understatement i was very sorry they were devastated because of course i actually last time they actually one day european cup or the time to speak of course was back in one thousand nine hundred five so you know it's a long long time for them and and to be where they are because you know they saw big teams like a fantasy it's oh it's you know we're big feed for them it's a young team seven of the players on the field were under twenty four so you know this is a team that invests heavily in their club and i'm sure that there's going to be bigger clubs sweeping around to see if they can snap up some of these these rising stars so it's it's definitely devastating for them but all the same it's still great to see them in the semifinal at least ok we know where they're going next now we're seeing. madrid host an all english final with liverpool and tottenham you
8:03 pm
live in madrid our time is the city ready for this because i mean the english fans are not exactly known for being calm well they're certainly they like to enjoy themselves that's for sure and madrid is of course a city that's well used to big games like this is going to be a good game pack your sunglasses under some cream but we're going to be in for a big night of european football public yes from get up the sports thank you. up next on news conflict with a debate about the future of europe don't forget you can always get the latest on our web site that's com you can follow us on social media i'm sorry kelly in berlin thanks for watching have a great day. to . europe big idea. what's become of it. will it look like tomorrow. being for a better future isn't enough europe requires our participation in. your
8:04 pm
elections twenty nineteen may twenty sixth on d w. france's president claims europe is in the grip of a civil war in italy hungry and poland leading politicians say they're fighting to save europe's christian soul which way will the continent turn that's our debates from the european parliament here in the heart of brussels. thank you. i'm going to come to the comfort zone debate battle lines of being drawn the head of the european elections with more than four hundred million people eligible to vote and increasingly it's
8:05 pm
a europe of stark contrasts last week about a thousand fascist sympathisers gapes to farm salutes and clashed with riot police in milan this information campaigns are said to be running at full tilt and commission president jose john told you because warned that if nationalist parties on the margins of the right and left take the upper hand. it would mean the end of liberal democracy and free society so on issues ranging from migration to rule of law or security and sovereignty our panelists have plenty to argue about sophie and her touching me p. and first vice president of the alliance of liberals and democrats for europe she's a member of several parliamentary committees including civil liberties. dominic touching was a member of the polish parliament for the ruling law and justice party he sits on the foreign and e.u. affairs committees geralyn has been a member of the european parliament for twenty years with a progressive alliance of socialists and democrats and is well known for his support for a federal europe max crys vice chairman of the f.t.
8:06 pm
the i'll tell it even further by chance in the german state of saxony and number three in the party's federal list for the european elections that's our panel. before we take questions from our invited audience including members of civil society groups i'm going to ask each of our politicians to set out very briefly the kind of european future they'd like to see fifteen and twelve can i ask you to start us off for one minute thank you very much and good evening everybody. we are living in a world of triumph china that's becoming stronger political global actor a world where we see big forces like facebook while away apple who are actually more powerful sometimes than states and that is why we need a very strong united and unify europe in order to stand up to these forces
8:07 pm
and to protect the our quality of life our way of life but the second thing i would like to say is just as important this is not just about a strong europe it's also about europe as a community of values and those values are equality equal rights for all and not everybody believes in that and i think this is very much on the ballot on the twenty third to twenty sixth of may and i will be campaigning for equal rights for gender equality for freedom of conscience for bt i rights a europe that is for everybody ok thank you very much you want to united europe you want a strong europe but voter turnout has gone down in every single european parliament election since they began it's going to be different this time. we don't know i think first of all we see in the polls that support for europe is actually going up and the fact that people are critical is not a bad thing it's a good thing if it means that people are taking ownership of europe downhill jaring
8:08 pm
yes we'll see whether that trend will continue and of course the turnout has to go up if we have the right to vote we should use it because that's how we we keep. a life. this is an organization you've been part of this failed time and again to connect to ordinary people brant said is proof of that and you know i don't think bricks it is proof of that we don't know that the analysis on what breaks it really means is still out because i think you know the reasons why people voted for bricks that are maybe very much connected to the reasons why american people voted for trump and incidentally the turnout in your in. there for you know if you can maybe you can hear me out the american turnout at the american elections is not very high either but it's clear that people are facing a choice of the kind of world they want to live in some people would like to go back in time take rights away from people you know end equality and pluralism and
8:09 pm
free democracy and that is really what's at stake here for a government dominant touchings can conquer europe you'd like to see i'd like to see christian europe christian europe as a faith as a law as a culture are like to see the europe which was built on the christian values this is who you are this is what i said previously that christianity is our d.n.a. and it's not about our faith only it's about the ages of all of the previous generations is who you are and from the christianity comes out the whole the whole culture roman law greek philosophers this is this is what was built on christianity so what i don't warns. as a new structure of the society with christianity i don't like people messing around like mr soros he splaying with the nations he's financing organizations who are absolutely anti christian some agree that equality is very important that's why i
8:10 pm
don't want i want to see churches like twenty four churches within week burned in france i don't want to see that so that's the only symbol that's the symbol so i want christian. routes i think safety even to europe but we got the point you pride yourself on christian values that's right but your attitudes to immigration run directly counter to christian values don't they at least in the eyes of the pope the catholic pope jesus is present he said in the migrants and refugees who seek safety and a dignified life in a new land it is christ he said we're not so on our door hungry thirsty a stranger making hundreds things and agree and imprisoned but he better be not knocking on your door because you won't let him in because the difference between illegal immigration and refugee is a legal difference by the international law i keep repeating it for the last three or five years we don't mind to take refugees if they submit their documents and ask for permission to be in poland we don't mind nothing's changed in twenty years of
8:11 pm
free poland you don't want muslim immigrants we don't want illegal migration and you don't want to muslims now you're talking about english general no no no no you want to distance we don't want illegal migration if it's christian if it's mostly if it's hindu or it's not believe or we don't illegal migration we don't want people on the boats coming without documents i would if i thought there's a little let me here let me let me finish so if they want to come to poland they can apply to can submit the documents but what is happening now is just the madness which is again something else and regular you say our soul is alive and the west soul is dead and that's right somebody or expert on souls what makes you the keeper of the sacred truth. first of all just quickly yes because i'm a roman catholic so the spirit is very important to me obviously this is just the picture that through first that eighty five percent of polish society is catholic and we cherish our tradition of telling the rest of europe how to live without telling anyone we want you saying it's the values the real value for europe we
8:12 pm
values our road into christianity not about the beautiful words john lennon your vision of europe these intimate imo roman catholic myself i have a totally different vision of polish pretty much is there for the slogan of yours. i visit team unity unity in diversity diversity makes us rich in any aspect and i think real if there is it very good sixty years of european integration has poured us this peace and freedom and now in these years we have to secure being and security so i think that we have to complete the common market in a digital europe. really as it we have to be fair in a social aspect i think it's a scandal that some people don't pay taxes serious normal people have to pay their taxes look on the gulf like amazon and google they don't pay their taxes as absolutes candid and certain sustainable logically i mean it's
8:13 pm
a must to be live over the planetary limits and i think climate protection is one of the key issues in next year's all right you've said. you've said also in the past that you want a strong and sovereign europe to defend the union's interests and values in the globalized world is what you've said but the e.u. already has enormous power as the world's largest trading bloc and it's not using it for that it's not defending values basic values you know a lot about human rights for instance in egypt continue to sign trade deals with them you don't use the power that you do is right in the lonely economically rio really a giant the biggest market in the verge but i behave like i don't think we fall off and indeed we have to really improve in our political let's say outlook towards diverts and really. booking with our values and our principles but i think that also john rocking the agreements with libya
8:14 pm
saying your rights my grandson here have them incarcerated for years in holding centers where they're abused and beaten not looked at do you what i'm going to do crowd. and averred fifty percent of all. human aids is coming from you we are not as good as we should be but let's sit down and work to an attorney exceptions later make good priorities with it it's all about words it's alright it's not it isn't it isn't it true because i am i am also i object strongly to to those deals who are not in line with our values and i think part of the reason why europe is concluding these things is because some governments like your government refuse to participate in the common asylum and migration. policy and you're you'd actually you're hearing a lot you know the nation as you have you know saw him come you have beautiful words but you you don't actually put them into practice and it is true when you say that on the one hand you basically want to create a theocracy and christian it has to be christian and at the same time countries
8:15 pm
democratic ok everyone can believe you because you won so if you're going to let me tell you that i don't know mansour and then i briefly and then i go to your mother did you want to say anything else don't know just just what i'm saying is our country is very open we are democratic country everyone is free to believe or not to believe whatever he wants what i'm saying is as a lawyer as a polish as a christian when i'm seen throughout the ages when i see the history and when i see the state of the you being in you now i do believe that the real value is not the it's not out there and google it's roman law right it's already laws if you have a really hard you get into that later max cry your vision of europe you know in a minute the first thing is that we distinguish between europe and the union europe is a place of a lot of virus of diversity and variety of peoples and cultures on a very small room it literally and that's makes you a rich and we well you the riot of certain governments of all those
8:16 pm
peoples and countries we have in europe on the other hand there's a common ground of my colleague told us which was the tradition of greek of greek philosophy and roman lore. and of course we have to do something and common and every serious european politics which is reliable has to balance our trip between the acceptance of serenity and off the diversity of cultures on the one hand and on the other hand to look what is needed to do in a joint way and what we've seen today is that almost all parties we have in germany except us the only say more brussels and more union a city arms and we say no it's not the answer we have to look what is better solved and better government on a regional level or eight and that is our point you've said in the past that europe needs to rediscover and value its cultural heritage and identity why some europeans
8:17 pm
do some don't set choice countries move forward that is true but countries evolve the world evolve yes but you you only can involve onion know where you come from you need it you need a common ground the common ground you want to go back to the days of strong nation states alone too strong we won chile the first sense of truth is and it was a fierce battle that isn't the first thing that these these nationalist extremist parties the friends who are here when they get to power we want is act women's rights is attacked b.t.i. right for is attacking you know the generals that is allegedly to mr know women's rights women this and i groom and try it like a temple. women that your wives and gay rights are now under attack because of the muslim immigration and you know walk a straight arrow free under attack. women's rights and their take gay rights in countries like poland and countries undersea econ trees you don't have attacks on
8:18 pm
the streets on gays and on women force and you have it you have it in countries very have a very high i mean spirited they're nothing against their governor. women's right we. really hear. empty words poland is a free country germany is a free country france is free country at least country is a free country the european union is the first let me you you are too interventionist let the others talk and it's better than i can you know deal being union is a free assembly of nations all of them had the referendum for join all over really. put down the loyalty to the principle its decision is done in common so i don't see this sudden. for the deck in the last century has seen my nation is to buy a nation is for free is ok some months. ok long to your
8:19 pm
new one not only tonight but blood you riot and what you talked to i'll tell you i know i want to tell us i wonder if any and i want to take the discussion on a little bit simpler lasher i want to stop this i'm not sure it serves not to remove and you need to talk just on the subject of migration i'd like to continue with it for a few moments because not only is it one of the biggest issues facing the european union but it's arguably one of its biggest failures isn't it in the way what what chance that the next parliament will do better than this one in setting out a policy that can command a consensus because you don't have action actually parliament actually reached consensus on the entire assignment package another might write it is actually to council where it's completely saw no member countries in the council that you don't chose are to revisit this off the liberal i guess what i'm going to and that's exactly something you can sell to the right time to say but you know that's. something we can i just. point is that you know the council has become somewhat of a. of
8:20 pm
a kind of black box everything stops there nothing moves forward whereas the parliament has actually been able to find broad consensus not including the extremists but the socialist liberals e.p. p. greens i mean there was a. brought to life and marry but resolution yeah ok so i'm going to come in let me let me tell you how they set up the fire and now they're trying to use the water to set it down complete nonsense ok thank you very much for your. letter i mean it's not even so much you're going to be considered nuns much variance in the european parliament socialist liberals. so and the council is socialist and they have all the tools their conservative conservatives are saying is no let me let them let it go i don't want to give you a chance to come in me so i can still be my jury at sea for years liberals e.p.b. and socialists they have all the tools set up to solve the problem but they can't
8:21 pm
they do not know how i'm gail america was looking for cheap labor she didn't want to help anyone and then she found out that she they don't want to work they don't want to learn the language so they said she found out i have to send them back someday and that's why she said yeah that's why she use regularly to send them saying i'm now just a tiny one so that they are just really really really want out of that listen to such nonsense but ok that's the most recent one is the average mom is it my laziness it is so the angular america avoids having the immigrants for cheap labor . finished or is it i think we had a problem in two fifteen to sixteen because rate of oil. divorce and syria. when they vote and nobody could see the hundreds thousands of people walking out of the misery but in the meantime if you look at what we have achieved we have a whole package of measures we have no done to fix haitian everybody who comes in
8:22 pm
new york is it and the fight we have. worked on our borders respond takes we have done the package with africa the countries where most of the poverty mike and scum so i think sit up in the ocean learn yeah. yeah if i don't in the lurch i know you will only under six very successful policy because you have not the migration flows of four years ago take your of i don't have anybody who are doing vices in the middle east and poverty in africa you will have migration all the time and. two minutes are together not that it is you are like me got me going on let me go to your mom here i am pretty you really get. water in your mother's brain of yours with your i'm going to read remarks crime i'm going to security you have your knees crying to be correct like these are the local i saw you on the cross i am seriously thinking he was going for you he started weeping goliah somebody please
8:23 pm
just let my experience a lot of typical lies of the german life from tanks has increased in numbers of of migrants over the mediterranean sea and then our friend mathilde so he came and closed the borders and closed the ports he stopped migration the balkan route was stopped by viktor orbán otherwise merkel wouldn't be chancellor anymore if he didn't stop the migration and two thousand and fifteen that means or man and salvini did the job well do you know tell us is a great success of the european union to choose this if it all left me for months. and sometimes let me speak i actually like to think he's the u.p.a. in union would have taken control over the hungary and borders and ports we would not have stopped immigration at all that means our side solves the problems you created by by take the migrants to europe because syria is smart or neighbor ok look some. well i agree with parts what you said but i disagree with one thing
8:24 pm
as long as we know that there are thirty five thousand people dead in the mediterranean we cannot talk about success if we see mr orbit starting migrants to dance and locking them up in containers i do not consider is that it's been so slow maybe i can finish that kind of energy when i think new things that have been or is fake use ok well let's all go and visit it signaling i'm going to of been at about one forty second you never finish i wasn't i wasn't aware that mr orban is running lebanon i think he's running hungry and talking about a large until general build a fence migrants or people in europe make that might mean. literally needs migration for them and we need to we we need control mannish like rationing we need to be almost about what we are doing is building fortress europe which is just the equivalent to european equivalent of trumping all ok and i think it is through a lot of problems than migration history do and i don't want to although i'd like to move on to our first question from our invited representatives of civil society
8:25 pm
under storyline from human rights watch what is it you'd like to ask these very much this thank you very much in europe the most important political lesson of the twentieth century was that political intolerance can lead to the end of democracy and to horrific crimes now today's europe we hear exactly the same rhetoric coming from far right politicians attacking minorities attacking migrants attacking. anyone they can get their hands on we hear anti-semitism we hear islamophobia so i am going to ask you a very specific question in minute touch and if you missed attractions he said just hold on if you can just be quiet for five seconds before you take power i would like to know what the parties on the right think about history did you learn absolutely nothing from twentieth century european history absolutely nothing you
8:26 pm
mr cross said learning our history is very important and you sit here and you repeat the phrases that we heard in the one nine hundred twenty nine hundred thirty s. it's outrageous now is your question mr titan's here we go you want a christian europe where does that leave those of us who are christian and we second class citizens we medical experiments what do you want with us and to you on the other side the left what are going to do about these people what do you know offer the public to show these people for what they are and just do something about the mad men this time so we don't have a repeat of last time. don't touch inskeep ok so do christian europe is not muslim euro i don't want you slam ization i'm not the only do you want to dance or i want you want to answer no i listen to you so listen to me now i don't want islamization in europe i don't want terrorism i think i'm crazy and so i did yeah. he did listen to things so let's not go to question it wasn't
8:27 pm
a question wasicka was i'm trying to answer the question i don't want i don't want islamization of europe i don't want terrorism in europe there is no christians who are shouting christ is the law before they blow themselves up but every single terrorist attack is it's followed by a lot of bar this is just a fact and christianity decision chances are ok let me let me say what i think so. what i said every country is a free and democratic country you can be a muslim hindu nonbeliever i don't care but for me my value is christianity and this is my program as a politician and then the nation is deciding that's that's how democracy works so that is why our government was elected that's why our governments are elected in hungary in sweden in other countries so let people decide what is important for them for me johnny and the christian values are important let's people this side
8:28 pm
and don't tell them how the country should look like because this is what you think it's called democracy let people vote. you know that it was there was a question directly and there are times when you're winning when you really. are your emotion not going in the same figurative use military commissions and every second please give me three other interesting gentlemen that was asked of sophie and would you like to answer yes i think what you call democracy which which i actually mean is the rule of the majority and i think the essence of democracy is that we also take care of minority eleanora to use so that in something very different and in my europe people are free to hold any religion that they have and they will not be and they will all this is what i say they will all be treated and represented equally by the public authorities and that's a big difference and that also means that there are that there is equal treatment of men and women there is i have an aerial equal treatment well actually you are
8:29 pm
attacking women's rights like for example their sexual and reproductive health and right and i'll answer that it was all the animals up for human reproductive animals i represent the piece of fish people are having a babies they having a lot of not reproduction intentions which is not a fair go. i'll try and answer to mr storyline i think one of the mistakes that we have mate over the years is that whenever a pro european centrist moderate forces are talking about europe they're talking about europe in very technocratic terms about internal market which i wholeheartedly support and a common currency we don't have to gots to actually stand up for the europe values and i stand for a europe of progressive values of equality your value has been about i should different values yes well you know in my europe you're going to lose a leg titles even to lose and what i want to bet yes you're going to have i'm real are you people i don't work together how are you going to work together because one
8:30 pm
of the duties of politicians is to compromise how you can work together i'm very open but i am not open for full madness to me the illegal migration which is called refuge refugees they are not refugees i keep repeating the refugees the person who flee to the first safe concreteness from the country of the conflict not flying to of the globe so if we are talking about the rule of law and the rules are broken and the words are used in this in a different way how can you how can you corporate and how can you respect the rule of law when you let go of migration is not the rigi by law one word one word because my europe's not just europe of equality but also the europe of diversity where everybody has a place because diversity is exactly what has made europe the best most prosperous free and safest continent in the world is not a very good it's not about saving your country i'm going out so i'm just going to go back to and it's like you know i'm by the very briefly very briefly are you
8:31 pm
encouraged by anything you heard. i'm sorry but i think it's very revealing that the start since he refuses to answer the question about what he would do with non christians in his christian europe yes i think that explains your absolutely everything really what they were it's very clear you have heard this rhetoric in the one hundred twenty s. in the one hundred thirty s. in europe we know where your talk leads you can shake your head all you want but we've seen it before we've been here before and europe is sick of it and we're not putting up with men like this when they are much all right next question comes from alexandrina my mother. from the european civic forum what would you like to us things thank you. in today's europe. raising inequalities fear of the future and a growing number of people who feel left behind these are undermining democracy and trust in a common future and progressive populist forces are surfing on these feelings
8:32 pm
with quite success i would say they are they and so this failure of democracy to deliver access to rights for all with less democracy because they build collective identities based on exclusion. and they try to shrink and to. shut up the space for dissent for democratic checks and balances for civil society for media for akademi and so on and so forth we come to a question but my question is addressed to the progressive camp. what kind of policies do we need to get out of this deadlock because it's not enough to say that we are pro europeans alongside what you said in the beginning what kind of policies we need to bring equality and solidarity and to make this european project great for all ok draw a line and. receive all our societies and even between states the
8:33 pm
strong get stronger and the rica stay weak or get weaker and the rich get richer and the other stay poor fronts and therefore i think it's the big task of the next years to put social dimension of our european politics in the center we have to our standards for the countries whether it's minimum wage whether it's access to health whether it's a proper pension system what if they don't. like what we had thirty years to get conversions in the monetary area it is possible to get the same under social there is some pressure now to cut off funding to those countries that don't abide by some of the rules are you in favor of that you know we have to do in the next financial framework a lot of funds for child care for youth unemployment for really helping countries to raise the standards and not to lower them but i think the fragmentation is sort
8:34 pm
of fragmentation in our society is to root for populism for i question and then this goes against when's it goes against minorities and then he ends it goes against everything they don't like the government or. because the european union so i think technically the root causes of fragmentation in society is the big issue of the next legit yes the first thing is we don't solve problems in economic problems by centralization and more rules from brussels so that we solve it by competition and by giving back the economic decisions back to do people who are the economic actors that's the first thing you can't have a common minimum wage in romania and in germany the same in ones so you have to have different solutions of the first thing the sex the next that i wonder a little bit that the member of the social democrats who introduced agenda twenty one in germany and to make a lot of reforms exactly the other way around is now proposing social politics the
8:35 pm
peace party in poland introduced to social politics as a market economy for the right man and your partner the p.o. platform of the dollar top to introduce a lot of corruption and unsocial policy so well or badly rosy i might tails out of any sort of the liberal side speak about the new era well and another valuable ruins and we not only need we've got it we don't need more regulation and rustles we need more flexibility more competition and more market economy for small businesses and not for to pick multinational conference that are your friends and your supporters there are a long way very briefly the only way to move on now one of the key principles in the european treaty is economic and social cohesion so we have a big market the market is competition there we have to head to small and medium sized companies that is not a problem but. that competition is over the years the big get bigger stronger and
8:36 pm
stronger a huge disparities aren't there except three engineer found we have to why do we have politics what it takes is there to correct a failure that is not doing it at the front i'm not doing it and you have a chance. we need to have a social cohesion for lucy that's what could or i told her now you know i'm going to i'm going to move on because we can ask one question jim is very well because this this thing is we are running out of time why you need to move on yet you believe in the nation state you know does one thousand nine hundred three invention to be the answer to the twenty first century challenges do you think that nation states are actually up to the multinationals like apple if a country like ireland for example has to be obliged by the european commission to live in thirteen billion euros in taxes never mind microsoft and facebook and all the others i mean that's the world you know four and national tax revenue service or order of the multinational you can't continue listening to other people don't
8:37 pm
you if you if for the big multinationals the national tax revenue service the actual seven have an issue with respect. alex cross you want the knowledge right for you are a very very good reform issue can i finish my sentence please for a while so long as you know i just won the nazi nationals you know national tax revenue services are like snack and are just shopping around in europe so if we want you to stand up against the big multinationals and make them pay taxes in europe then we have to do that together as a european ok that's why you haven't done it yet and so so much crowded the first thing is you can't explain switzerland on the base on your three because the people in switzerland they have high wages and they have a high living standards and they have to multinational and country and there for about eighteen axis they pay taxes and that's a first or second even in the european union they don't pay taxes so obviously something goes wrong with it in your your large space and the point is i agree with you that a customs union needs
8:38 pm
a joint customs and trade policy otherwise it doesn't work but we don't need a joint liberal laure we don't need a joint minimum wage and we don't need a joint. it's all right sized cross thank you. thank you for that we have to move on now and we're going to take two questions together first from richard gardner from global witness and then leo hoffman axtell from transparency international richard will you go first this evening thank you very much for the opportunity to speak today my question concerns somewhere where europe is very integrated just the financial system europe is one of the largest global markets in the world this means money from all of the world is flowing in and out of europe on a daily minute by minute basis that means there's a high likelihood that the e.u. financial system is helping to fund human rights abuses to fuel via mental destruction globally also to inadvertently or potentially intentionally funding are fueling them corrupt and corruption and also money laundering this european
8:39 pm
parliament did try to do a lot of good work and under the guidance of the commission to tackle that put what is your vision of how this parliament can act on this in particular to make sure that european money. it does not fuel environmental destruction which is something critical at this stage of seeing the u.n. report about species this week and also the recent i.p.c.c. one point five degrees and also to make sure that your money laundering which has been an issue and has prompted ok i'm going to i'm going now because we've we're taking another question at the same time leo hofmann axtell your question please for transparency international thank you well in recent years we've not only seen one topic on that you've seen we've not only seen people speak about migration or using the issue for their political goals we've also seen a steady erosion and very very inger ocean of the rule of law and of the macwrite the institutions in the member states we've seen direct attacks on the in the pens of the judiciary we've seen governments threatening media freedom intimidating civil society shockingly we've even seen two journalists murdered for their
8:40 pm
investigations into corruption the condemnation however from political leaders in brussels has only come if it were governments in the members member states that were ruled by the opposing parties and actually this is not just the case in the so-called law and justice government in poland it's also the case with the conservatives and hungry it's the case with the socialists and malta and it's also the case with the prime minister bobbish and his conflict of interest who is was the liberals in the czech republic so my question to you is what do you intend in the next legislature to do about this and i would mainly ask the parties that are expected to. actually do some of these reforms in government thank you ok thank you for your question or for your opinion it is true that the free media were interested in the past in poland i am the best example i used to work as a director of the polish public television and i was fired. when civic platform won
8:41 pm
election just because my views are conservative i was a member of the party and i was fired so i'm the best example you're right liberals just throw me away i lost my job so you're right the free media where interest in poland in the past not any more judiciary the difference between german system and probably system of judiciary is that minister of justice in germany appointing the judges and in poland minister of justice cannot appoint a judge for truth i'll tell you ok by the parliament but this isn't the rule but that susan is making by political decision is making by the minute let me finish let me. let me finish so we need an answer on tackling corruption corruption ok money laundering who was the one who was invited to the european poland parliament two weeks ago monocles or stuff from the open dialogue foundation and we found out
8:42 pm
that she is into the money laundering from russia and she was invited by the socialist to be reported european parliament ok thank you very much as a society. yeah ok this is very briefly because we're running out of jail and my nation very bad i think and probably the one thing the only thing that we will ever agree on is that indeed the fact that the european commission has only dared to target poland. addressing the fundamental rights violations and the rule of law violations is because they're the law and justice party is not a member of the e.p. family or any of the other families and that is why i was very honored to be repartee of a proposal for a broad mechanism to uphold democracy the rule of law and fundamental rights in other words the so-called article two of the treaty values and i am very confident that even if it took some time for the european commission and the european council to come to the. realization that we need such. mechanism i think it will
8:43 pm
materialize in the next in the next period that meets all the member states will be set on the basis of the same criteria on a regular annual basis something the council of europe decided in february an offshoot of the council of europe press freedom in europe is now in a worse state than at any time since the cold war how worrying is that joe line very briefly very briefly we're running out of time it's absolutely boring because those in power in some countries try to undermine the freedom of press we have been on top or the new media fake news on a daily basis from morning till morning so we're really in danger to losing crown of our democracies by a mechanism that undermined the really spirit of a decent and really true dialogue and argument is undermined by
8:44 pm
those mechanisms from governments in power as well as other powers outside the e.u. would try to money political public remarks cross worried are you about this state of press freedom in europe i'm very worried about because what we see now is the attempt of the governments to censor the social networks and the social media and for instance the shorelines party introduced and it's fair to set source because that's the sort of censorship lore in germany that leads facebook and twitter to to to to block a lot of. speech which you make facebook which is a private owned company to be to censor the net for which is shameful we have more blocked users of facebook and twitter in germany then we have and russia and you sit here and tell me you overt about freedom of press and freedom of expression that is
8:45 pm
a lie of yours is typical for your party even to see. typical for your party traditions the point is that that freedom of opinion is now mostly on the internet they are the people to bait and discuss and governments mostly left wing liberal governments especially the party of chill line and they introduce morse to undermine the freedom of debate and the internet and that's very shameful and this is something we will end immediately if we get the possibility to do so you bring it through bring freedom to our line you know you have twenty seconds are you not shamed by that not at all i know it is about the hate speech is a sort of really fall it's a speech being we guaranteed a freedom of speech not truthful pinion but what we see on the internet is really beyond the red lines and you have to have measures to really limited all right we're going to have to leave that question there my thanks to our for panelists and they are questioners in the audience and to all of you for watching don't forget
8:46 pm
there's a longer version of this debate which you can find online for now from all of us on the team here the european parliament in brussels thank you. very i want to represent you so what do you want from them join our song from twenty four and as we put your questions to you politicians from around the european union and across the political spectrum can our special debate will be hearing from young europeans voting for the first time in the new elections in may
8:47 pm

8:48 pm
t.w. . logo . plate . this is news life our lead international tensions surges over the iran nuclear deal evil leaders rejecting you also made them from tehran saying that they are greatly concerned
8:49 pm
about the future of the in. iran for its. part faces more pressure as the united states tighten the screws on the islamic republic spine posing harsh new sanctions . also coming up pope francis introduce a groundbreaking new law to combat sex abuse in the future catholic priests and nuns around the world will be obliged to form the church if they suspect abuse is taking place over the implications for perpetrators and victims plus honoring the dad the female perfidy artist making a mark in sudan as the country's military remains in power and protests. as another night of champions league another stunning comeback to get into the final this time it was london tough times during the last gasp of injury time to time and toss into a victory for high accepts.
8:50 pm
i'm sorry welcome to the program the european union is urging iran to stick by its commitments under the nuclear deal agreed with the world powers in twenty fifteen the statement was given ahead of an ongoing use summit and the remaining in city of sibi where the twenty seven e.u. heads of state are gathered to outline a new strategic agenda for the gar pain you get in a joint declaration broken leaders stated that they rejected ultimatums from tehran but about to fight to save the iran nuclear deal. get good at going nuclear leaving the nuclear agreement of twenty fifteen would be a mistake it would mean unraveling all past achievements that's why france is staying and will stay and probably you play i hope iran decides to do the same it's up to us to convince everyone including iran to stick to the record there's a certain pressure now in reaction to an american decision but we have to keep
8:51 pm
a cool head and not let the situation escalate. we should jointly ensure our collective security and that means preserving iran's presence in the agreement on earth and eric massa standing by now where that summit is taking place in five you just heard there from the french president on the new on the crown on iran what are we to make of the e.u. use joint statement on the. sorrow that message from my call was reiterated by a number of other leaders who arrived here for this informal summit though the dilemma they all face really is that the decision by terror and the prior decision of the u.s. to love you laterally withdrawn from the deal really puts this diplomatic success that the e.u. has achieved with the nuclear deal into jeopardy it exposes a diplomatic weakness if you want of the e.u. because there is not a lot that he leaders can do other than making sure that they want to stand by the
8:52 pm
deal they hope that may change its mind about it and emphasizing how important it is how much in the interest of everyone it is to pursue a diplomatic pass to keep peace in the region and prosperity ok. and you know what i also like to get some reaction to you and you know when it comes to the background how we got here on this deal we have a quick report to show our viewers and then i'll get your reaction there after. patience has run out read the headlines of iran's newspapers president hassan rouhani said the five nations still party to the nuclear deal have two months to start delivering on their commitments or tehran could turn its back on the pact. under the twenty fifty nuclear deal iran agreed to let international atomic energy agency monitors into their nuclear facilities and only enrich uranium for civilian purposes in return economic sanctions on the country were lifted. the
8:53 pm
international atomic energy agency says iran has been meeting its end of the bargain but that didn't prevent the u.s. withdrawing from the deal last year and reinstating sanctions now iran is threatening to enrich uranium closer to weapons grade levels the move is threatening to escalate a confrontation between tehran and washington secretary of state mike peo made an impromptu visit to iraq this week accusing iran of posing a threat to u.s. soldiers in the country just days ago the u.s. the ploy the carrier to the persian gulf the trump administration policies to exert maximum pressure on iran and their sanctions are hitting hard iran's oil exports are down and their currency has taken a dive things are getting tight for tehran. so where does that leave toward iran. well the difficulty for the e.u. really is to find a mechanism that would allow
8:54 pm
a business to continue with tirant they have created a mechanism that involves for instance the trade of food supplies but it does not involve oil supplies it does not involve the pick tech companies pick companies in europe who are deeply afraid of u.s. sanctions if they were to continue traits with iran and that really is the dilemma of the european union faces how they can resolve this in order to can keep enough on the table to convince the iranians to fulfill their part of the deal and aside from iran what else is at stake at today's summit. lots of unresolved issues of course you have the mike ration crisis where there's still a big row over the relocation of microphones although numbers have trops dramatically then you have the reform of the euro zone something the french president pushes for he also will talk today to e.u.
8:55 pm
leaders about the environmental agenda and many have said he will seek to get more of other you members to join him seeing that the twin engine the german french twin engine hasn't really worked on the big reform ideas that the french president has put forward so lots on the agenda but also some positive things the e.u. will want to emphasize german chancellor angela merkel said we need to be innovative we need to be strong and we need to stick together and that is something a lot of leaders said and after the family picture here in cabo on the marketplace they got a hero's while comes from greg crowds took a bath and the crowds if you want with people cheering for the e.u. something your leaders don't experience everything gay or mattress joining us from khomeini i thank you. and let's get a check now some other stories making news around the world north korea is continuing its weapons tests with south korean. reporting to suspected short range missiles being launched from an operating base near pyongyang the launch follows
8:56 pm
a widely criticized drill on sunday when the north fired multiple prague projectiles but at least one believed to be a short range missile. vote counting is underway in south africa after the country's parliamentary elections early results show the ruling african national congress in the lead the vote is the first parameter of public sentiment since the presidency or brahma post replaced scandal at jacob zuma last year and the tie bay made famous by the hollywood movie the beach will reportedly remain closed to tourists for another two years maya bay was first shot last june authorities hope that the additional time will allow coral and wildlife to recover from the damage caused by boats or mean thousands a day trippers. and its relative purity forces have arrested the vice president of the country's opposition controlled national assembly and got his arm around a was seen here on the left in these pictures is the deputy self-proclaimed
8:57 pm
president. one by doe so ground zero is the first opposition figure to be arrested since the opposition's failed attempt to spark in military uprising. so francis has issued a groundbreaking new law requiring all catholic priests and nuns to report clergy sex abuse and cover ups the pavel decree covers abuse of both children and adults it requires every catholic diocese in the world to set up simple and accessible systems for reporting abuse and to provide protections for people making a full court it also allows for suspected abuse to be reported directly to the vatican. i'm joined now here in the studio by religious affairs correspondent martin gak to put all of this into perspective so i mean what exactly does this mean now. i mean the first thing to be said is that it's it's really a massive announcement in the sense that this policy has been in place already in
8:58 pm
a couple of spots around the world but no it's really being presented as a top down sort of policy the man and it's being pushed through the entire church system so in principle it's understood as something that that would affect the sort of african nation latin american countries which you know have lists of sort of questions of transparency and in which questions of reporting have not yet been fully addressed by the church how significant is the change the change is very significant for this region's i mean but this very form of policy actually almost in the exact form is already in place in europe and north america. i think it is important to say you know the question us should what the reporting will will what kind of effect it will have is completely the bender's contingent upon what kind what degree of success they have in convincing local authorities and local especially parishes to actually reboard part of the issue is that of course the
8:59 pm
cover up was understood to be institutional but much of the thing that makes study institutional story is actually informal so that goes to say that if there are friendships or there are systems of safe play into least in which there is snow. official sees them in those relations then those things will probably remain undercover but yeah undercover and also you know within the church system itself because there's no obligation here to report these issues to civilian authorities so what are we to make of that we have an obligation now to report them to the church i mean the church itself has to actually take this up in a formal structure or through you know formal formal processes the question is really whether this is actually the end of the road or whether this actually a preamble to the next step which effectively would be the turning of this information international authorities the turning of information to national authorities even suspicions and accusations is essentially most of what victims and
9:00 pm
advocacy groups are actually demanding for that to take place we know have pretty much the spokes setting the ground so i think it's worthwhile saying that the spite all the criticism and all the claims that much of the change in the church has been cosmetic this thing seem to come in waves and each wave seems to mound sort of on the previous one it is now conceivable that the next demand from the very top of the church will be actually turning information to national authorities at that stage to policy that is in place today would become a bully see that would have binding force for national law how do you how realistic is it that you think that we could see that i have to say i mean it's not realistic at all if you would have us me these sort of five years ago i would have said just you might as well forget about it this is a church we have and this is a church where we will have. somebody that has been observing this for quite a while i have to say that there are constants or prices in the kind of policy that is the blood from the public offices and i think that people need to bear in mind
9:01 pm
that this is not really sort of a boat or ship in which the cups and says something and then you know the ship is steered i mean this is the kind of operation which you have to bring a lot of people on board across the board and many of these people actually have very best an interest in presenting resistance so that goes to say that every one of these announcements which the public might like more or less need to come with political successes which are much more difficult to achieve religious affairs correspondent thank you my pleasure. russia is marking the seventy fourth anniversary of the soviet victory over nazi germany in world war two russians across the country commemorate victory day with the biggest celebration by far taking place in moscow's red square in a lavish parade thousands of troops marched past past president vladimir putin and other high ranking russian officials side's servicemen more than one hundred thirty military vehicles and seventy four aircraft were involved in the display victory day commemorates the surrender of nazi germany in one thousand forty five and

9:03 pm
investigating what germans see as the big issues of their time correspondent kate brady has been traveling the country to find out what's on people's minds a big concern for many especially the young is climate change just a few years ago germany appeared to be leading the way in the fight against global warming but now it has fallen back on its commitments kate brady has been meeting people who say that the government now faces a stark choice. to end my journey across germany i'm traveling back to the capitol. where the german government is feeling the heat of climate change. between its love of cars a nuclear power phase out and the country's long goodbye to cofield energy gemini's struggling to meet climate goals. in recent weeks that very issue has been quite literally knocking on the government's front door. inspired by the swedish climate activists clear to to mag for the past four months hundreds and thousands of german
9:04 pm
school kids have been skipping school every friday demanding action against climate change university student louise annoyed power has become the face of the fridays for a future movement in germany which is now backed by more than twenty six thousand scientists. we need our government to act now and i don't see that right now we keep burning fossil fuels knowing that they are destroying environment and. disturbing our climate to an extent that. we are struggling we will be struggling to stay alive in the long term and species are dying every day. once deemed a world champion in environmental protection it seems germany is at least now realizing that there's more to the fight against climate change the meticulously separating rubbish blushes heat wave alone brought home the harsh realities of climate change cargo ships brought to a standstill dried crops forest fires and damage to infrastructure. having missed
9:05 pm
its twenty twenty climate goals the german government is now looking ahead to twenty fifty with the aim of phasing out coal powered energy by twenty thirty eight but students likely we want to see the end of that by twenty thirty at the latest. demonstrators have vowed to continue striking until they see more action from the government. if in twenty years time your children or your grandchildren or the children of the neighbors will ask you what did you do back then when will you know what was so could change things well you could still make a difference what you do and i'm telling this the government here we were to judge this government. harshly. because we will look back at them and see that there were amongst the last ones who could actually change something and change the path we are on. knowing the consequences of what's happening to us that ensure that
9:06 pm
each. you're watching d.w. news still to come on the program bamboozled by bank knowledge australians join a nationwide search for something life not quite right about the third new fifty dollars note what could it be my peace prize. but first the people of sudan have succeeded in removing long term dictator over all bashir but that doesn't mean that they have won power for themselves leaders of the mass protest which sparked the removal of bashir say that the military council which replaced him is delaying the implementation of civilian rule protests however are set to continue the mass movement which has sparked change in sudan has many faces our correspondents melanie corridor ball and i even him major graffiti artists paying tribute to those who were killed in the fight for liberation and who now are part of the revolution themselves. spraypaint
9:07 pm
weapon of protest. graffiti artist has returned to her home sudan to do have with the uprising that broke out in december she's honoring anti-government protesters who've lost their lives by creating portraits of them in front of their homes. the artwork being there is a reminder to everyone that you know what they died for you. we have to remember the martyrs because. they are all comes down to they went out to protest for us. of the past months seal and a team of volunteers have memorialized over twenty mata's as she refers to them. they did so at a great personal risk. that. we painted in the middle of demonstrations with security forces everywhere what would we have done if something had happened when we were doing our last painting we got arrested.
9:08 pm
the inspiration came from moving conversations with relatives of the victims a seal is back in body the neighborhood so some of the times most violent clashes. father who was killed in a cell is here to complete the mural dedicated to his memory. comfort that. there was gunfire some of the demonstrators wanted to hide in the house my brother let them in some security officers wanted to get in my father wouldn't open the door so they shot at the door my father got injured he died the next morning. with song. says her family's thankful to the paying tribute to her father for his role in sudan's revolution. as a young woman she's inspired it is a female artist who took this initiative summit in right from the beginning the
9:09 pm
idea of a woman coming here to paint was strange i had never seen anything like that and. seen men doing it but that a woman comes and does this it was near. a seal says she is just one of many women who have been a driving force in this uprising. she also wants to stand as a symbol for the freedom of artists in sudan and a catalyst for conversations about change in the future i think art is is the most important thing in revolutions because it's only small a thing the visual thing that makes you feel like you're there you would appear not this art course is going to speak about what's happening you know today it's not just a specific person but it's what he died for and the cause that he died for. the full full full the full of the military transitional council in favor of a civilian government that's the last demand is c.l.
9:10 pm
and the community here have in their revolution. have. a say in hopes that for future generations in a free sudan the last remnants of the country's repressive regime will be these murals reminding everyone how that very system was overthrown. that when champions league football there was a nother stunning come from behind victory in the semifinals this time london's tottenham broke the hearts of i axed from amsterdam public fully elyas has all the action for us now so what happened here well after of course very exciting musri liverpool in barcelona everyone told us was going to be a more relaxing affair and it was far from a to say the least i x. took an early lead will say after five minutes and then they went to work before at the half time break so had their sons thinking about their travel plans for the final in madrid but then tottenham hit back hard with two. goes straight after half time and then saying to you cuss mode out well he actually scored for it the the
9:11 pm
two goes for tottenham as well he added the third and decisive goal in the very final minute of the match to steal victory and ensure and even funk because of course now tottenham two are going to be playing in their first european cup final and will be playing of course at liverpool and they were over the moon of course as you can imagine and they posted a pretty interesting video call it interesting because it's blatantly them having a good time in their singing their voices may not be as good to us therefore. it's of the nice to see them there over the moon delighted on their fans i have a good friend who's a titan fine she posted a video and it was hilarious because it seemed to have shocked she was at that last minute goal now. their manager as well and was delighted obviously because you know all that hard work and all that effort that they've put in and is paying off at least so let's hear from him. i live in
9:12 pm
a sentence if you have these no pain no gain and i feel needs some amazing feeling because all that therefore we made in the last five years to. use to be you know. it was all worth it yes so. it was all worth it i mean really spectacular football that we're seeing in the champions league right now but you really have to kind of feel for i.x. and the fans today and the players they must really be just a point oh my god so disappointed is is an understatement i was i sorry they were devastated because of course i actually last time they actually one day european cup or the time to duke of course was back in one thousand nine hundred five so you know it's a long long time for them and and to be where they are because you know they saw big teams like a fantasy trip so it's you know we're big feet for them it's a young team seven of the players on the field who are under twenty four so you know there's a team that invests heavily in their club and i'm sure that there's going to be bigger clubs sweeping around to see if they can snap up some of these these rising
9:13 pm
stars so it's it's definitely devastating for them but all the same it's still great to see them in the semifinal at least ok we know where they're going next now we're seeing. madrid hosting all english finals liverpool and tottenham you live in madrid our time is the city ready for this because i mean the english fans are not exactly known for being called well they're certainly they like to enjoy themselves that's for sure madrid is of course a city that's well used to big games like this is going to be a good game pack your sunglasses under some cream but we're going to be in for a big night of european football public yes from get up the sports thank you. well sometimes new isn't also improved like in australia where the central bank has confirmed that its latest batch of fifty dollar notes has the same word misspelled three times on millions of notes now the bank says that it will correct its at the next print run. it just goes to show sometimes you have to read the fine print
9:14 pm
australia's high tech polmar banknotes are extremely hard to counterfeit thanks to their highly detailed printing but evidently that technology doesn't include a spell checker the word responsibility is misspelled three times on the new us notes missing the last. but australians seem willing to overlook the error. well i guess with this instinct is that he uses cash anymore answer quite a lot of people the note was printed forty six million times and that's one hundred thirty eight million missing eyes but yet you'd expect somebody to check and make sure that it's all correct before those on the printer has gone out to that many people then on his side then you expect to be wrought australia's central bank says it will fix the error on the next series of notes later this year meaning that sometimes you just have to take responsibility however you write it. mistakes

9:22 pm
a change in in the style of governance that it would have to be a people's choice in that for them that was held in two thousand and seven had believe me the choice was made and if there has to be a change it once again the people would have to make the choice what of the other significant challenges that you do you see or do you see the maldives faces you had the question of the impartiality of judges the judiciary and how free that is in the maldives is that one of the things that the new mold even government will be looking at. yes that is a major issue we have the independence of the judiciary and a judiciary that he's accepted and in which people have full confidence there has been a lot of his appointments with how the judiciary has functioned over the past is and in fact when the new goal much the political system changed to
9:23 pm
a democracy fu democracy in two thousand and eight was the government and the legislature changed the judiciary has remained the same and there is a long way to go before we can have an independent and a credible judiciary that will deliver justice to the people and in and in one in which people have has confidence we certainly hope that's going to be the case. thank you so much for speaking to the doctor knows thank you thank you very much and i appreciate the opportunity thank you all the foreign secretary of the moment that to pakistan next for the government has suspended an empty drive following renewed attacks against foreigner workers in the past three weeks at least three people involved in vaccination drives have been killed by gunmen the attacks have been blamed on fake videos and rumors about your vaccination issues that have taken the lives of nearly one hundred people in attacks on vaccine teams since two

a father the only comfort from his death that the family can all hope for is that one day pakistan will be declared your feet. singapore has introduced a controversial anti fake law which gives the government sweeping powers to block content and issue take down or does offend us can now face up to ten years in jail and a hefty fine to protection from online false words and manipulation been was passed by an overwhelming majority in the singapore palm and critics of the new annoying to journalists rights groups as well as tech giants like google and facebook they fear the clampdown on fake news will stifle free speech and innovation for more on this i'm joined by one of the laws critics civil rights activist joe lovano ram from singapore donovan good to see you know just two weeks ago you were fined five thousand singapore dollars that's about three thousand euros for refusing to take
9:28 pm
down a facebook post would you be in jail right now under these new laws. yes because the new law is actually allow for the government prosecute anyone for publishing online salsas so in the case that you just mentioned i was fined for scandalising the judiciary analysis or dissipate seven thousand all this in costs to the prosecutor. do you think that this new law that has just been targets people such as yourselves. yes definitely because in the last few years there has been a crackdown by the government on on critics and activists who have been to critical of the government and the ruling party but you also have a situation in which feat news for example is making dens in democracies are on the wall so when the government wants to pass
9:29 pm
a law that want to regulate what is wrong with that. well we have to understand that singapore is not a democracy it is a one party authoritarian state so singapore inside neverland head another political party take over the government fall and the ruling party is interested in only perpetuating one narrative and entrenched in its power so the law has just been passed in parliament yesterday did the government in any singapore arbitrary policy to decide what is true and what is false so the decision to do that is not decided by an independent panel it's not decided by an independent council it is the government of the ministers themselves who can decide and all the takedowns so this is what worrying about this new law what about oversight in respect of the person who is making
9:30 pm
a decision about what is fair and what does not is the oversight been into this role. the only oversight is that the person who's been ordered to take down can make an appeal to the high court but this is a very onerous process you need to hire a lawyer and it will take you expend a great deal of resources in order for anybody to do that and this is out of reach to the ordinary singaporean and the grounds for the appeal are also very narrow. the judge can only decide if the takedown is necessary if there is if what is published is a statement of truth or whether it is a false statement so other considerations such as whether the minister over reacting all whether it is in the interests of the public to take these things to take down the whole suit is something which the court is not allowed to decide

systems why would anyone grant such power to regime that is already question they violated cyberspace its official security the united states' ability share certain information with trusted networks this is exactly what china wants the right to defy western alliances through bits and bytes not bullets and bombs. huawei says we are not spies we simply make the most advanced and the cheapest equipment america's partners say this is not about espionage this is about innovation. so more and more allies are not heeding the warnings from the u.s. about huawei the u.s. or the borrow against iran is not as it says as important partners continue to buy tear on soil and recently the u.s. failed to stop its traditional italy from joining china's belt and road initiatives all in or america's influence seems to be on the way with me here to discuss that question is our financial correspondent contribution in frankfurt and the w.'s
9:37 pm
residence china expert clifford tour and here with me in the studio and let's go to conrad and frank first hope he's on the line concierge right now come on ask you anyway it's easy to blame donald trump for for this dropping in influence really. is it just down to is rather erratic foreign and economic policy no it's not. we should forget that the united star states is of course very important market for europe for example but it's only one market. still even if we take into consideration that the americans and the economy they're setting the tone in the world it has to be said the most important market for europe is europe itself even after breaks it the european union will unite four hundred fifty million consumers and it also has to be said that markets like china
9:38 pm
have become more and more important in recent decades not only because of car sales but also because of the enormous influence of china in electronics elektra of parts made in china used in virtually everything produced in terms of consumer computers etc you simply cannot avoid china and that also means that you have to include china in negotiations about you know how to govern and make trade. cliff talking about china no matter what's going on in these trade talks that have been dragging on for months. it looks like china is winning i think it's possible you know we can actually say that. they've really played a blinder in many ways there's been a lot of areas where they've annoyed their neighbors in particular is in the south china sea we've heard nothing about that for months we've had the belgian road initiative we had a huge forum in beijing in recent days and that seems have gone down very well with
9:39 pm
the neighbors and even further afield even even here in europe as you saw it really took part in. its authoritarian style of government well it annoys many people in the west doesn't really bother too many people in asia it seems and so what we're seeing is is china playing a very good game and as you say seems to be winning economy the dollar still remains the globe globe's currency is it the last geo strategic weapon if you will in economic terms for the use of aircraft carriers. well again i doubt that financial people's would agree with your wording but of course it's true that the fact that the united states has the number one reserve currency gives the united states a lot of strength also the fact by the way that china is the largest lender to the united states this doesn't really give china the possibility. to do with america what it wants no china has to pay attention that it's large holdings of
9:40 pm
u.s. treasuries will not be damaged also the external debt of china is all the rise so it means hard currency to serve its lenders its own lenders. in frankfurt included. in the studio thank you very much. well the u.s. china trade dispute also looms large over america's tech sector companies complain about intellectual property theft and market restrictions in china seems raised by u.s. negotiators companies like apple google or and video also rely on chinese manufacturing as well as chinese consumers china's burgeoning tech companies meanwhile want to better market access to the u.s. . some of our nominee went to mountain view california to gauge the mood at google's developers conference. enjoying silicon valley and the openness of the
9:41 pm
google community with developers from all over the world you ruined her colleagues are from china and very excited about attending this conference for the very first time. a so good chance to learn from. us. develop her. very very special. you asked china trade worries here in mountain view california north of the engine but many you ask tech companies already caught in the crossfire. especially those relying on manufacturers and suppliers in china companies like apple president trump's latest terror threat could hit hard to detect giant and even force it to move its i phone production out of china silicon valley is affected like the rest of the country says alan sykes professor at the stanford
9:42 pm
university but he also acknowledges that the sticking points in the negotiations are important to the tech companies i'm sure they are a bit ambivalent in many cases they would like to see the u.s. strategy succeed in getting a spitter access to the chinese market better intellectual property protection but they're worried that it won't succeed and that will end up in some sort of protracted trade war which will hurt everybody had better market access stats what google wants and. google and he blocked in china just like facebook or instagram china's restrictions and tough regulations make it hard for american tech companies to reach more than seven hundred million chinese internet users relaxing those restrictions is seen as crucial for the future of the industry. many in the industry here are so committed to their jobs they brushed off trade concerns are still very alike very passionate about our work and so what happens over there is
9:43 pm
not going to impact our the quality of our work or our product trying to make the best as we can and then it's what the developers want to focus on new hardware that has software solutions and not politics. sometimes new doesn't necessarily mean better in the australia the central bank has confirmed that its latest batch of fifty dollar notes as a spelling mistake on the one word is misspelled sweet times across the world millions of notes been printed but the bank says a book only corrected in its next print. it just goes to show sometimes you have to read the fine print australia's high tech polymer banknotes are extremely hard to counterfeit thanks to their highly detailed printing but evidently that technology doesn't include a spell checker the word responsibility is misspelled three times on the new us
9:44 pm
notes missing the last. but australians seem willing to overlook the error. well i guess with this instinct is that he uses cash anymore answer quite a lot of people the note was printed forty six million times and that's one hundred thirty eight million missing eyes but yet you'd expect somebody to check and make sure that it's all correct before they suddenly pointed his gun out to that many people then on his side then you expect to be brought australia central bank says it will fix the error on the next series of notes later this year meaning that sometimes you just have to take responsibility however you write it. for me and the business. of business i will leave you now with this global markets and stay right where you use is right next.

i'm sorry kelly welcome to the program the european union is urging iran to stick by its commitments under the nuclear deal agreed with world powers in twenty fifteen the statement was made ahead of the e.u. summit in the romanian city of seaview where the leaders are gathering to outline a new strategic agenda for the bloc in a joint declaration the leaders said that they rejected quote ultimatums from tehran but vowed to fight to save the iran nuclear deal. here's what french president emmanuel mccrone had to say. leaving the nuclear agreement of twenty fifteen would be a mistake it would mean unraveling all past achievements that's why france is staying and will stay there and probably you play i hope iran decides to do the same you see it's up to us to convince everyone including iran to stick to the accord maybe there's a certain pressure now in reaction to an american decision but we have to keep a cool head and not let the situation escalate before we should jointly ensure our
9:51 pm
collective security and that means preserving iran's president in the agreement that the eric massa standing by now where that summit is taking place in sea view again org we just heard there from the french president on manual mccrone on iran what are we to make of the a use joint statement on the. sarah that message from my call was reiterated by a number of other leaders who arrived here for this informal summit though the dilemma they all face really is that the decision by terror and the prior decision of the us to love unilaterally withdraw from the deal really puts this diplomatic success that the e.u. has achieved with the nuclear deal in jeopardy it exposes the diplomatic weakness if you want of the e.u. because there is not a lot that you leaders can do other than making sure that they want to stand by the
9:52 pm
deal they hope that may change its mind about it and emphasizing how important it is how much in the interests of everyone it is to pursue a diplomatic policy to keep peace in the region and prosperity ok. and you know what i also like to get some reaction to you and you know when it comes to the background how we got here on this deal we have a quick report to show our viewers and then i'll get your reaction there after. patience has run out read the headlines of iran's newspapers president hassan rouhani said the five nations still party to the nuclear deal have two months to start delivering on their commitments or tehran could turn its back on the pact. under the twenty fifty nuclear deal iran agreed to let international atomic energy agency monitors into their nuclear facilities and only enrich uranium for civilian purposes in return economic sanctions on the country were lifted. the
9:53 pm
international atomic energy agency says iran has been meeting its end of the bargain but that didn't prevent the u.s. withdrawing from the deal last year and reinstating sanctions now iran is threatening to enrich uranium closer to weapons grade levels the move is threatening to escalate a confrontation between tehran and washington secretary of state mike peo made an impromptu visit to iraq this week accusing iran of posing a threat to u.s. soldiers in the country just days ago the u.s. the ploy the carrier to the persian gulf the trump administration policies to exert maximum pressure on iran and their sanctions are hitting hard iran's oil exports are down and their currency has taken a dive things are getting tight for to iran. so where does that leave the e.u. toward iran. of the difficulty for the e.u. really is to find a mechanism that would allow
9:54 pm
a business to continue with tirant they have created a mechanism that involves for instance the trade of food supplies but it does not involve oil supplies it does not involve the pick tech companies pick companies in europe who are deeply afraid of u.s. sanctions if they were to continue trade with iran and that really is the dilemma of the european union faces how they can resolve this in order to you can keep enough on the table to convince the iranians to fulfill their part of the deal and aside from iran what else is at stake at today's summit. lots of unresolved issues of course you have the mike ration crisis where there's still a big row over the relocation of microphones although numbers have to drop dramatically then you have the reform of the euro zone something the french president pushes for he also will talk today to e.u.
9:55 pm
leaders about the environmental agenda and many have said he will seek to get more other e.u. members to join him seeing that the twin engine the german french twin engine hasn't really worked on the big reform ideas that the french president has put forward so lots on the agenda but also some positive things the e.u. will want to emphasize german chancellor angela merkel said we need to be innovative we need to be strong and we need to stick together and that is something a lot of leaders said and off of the family picture here in cabo on the marketplace they got a heroes while comes from greg crowds took a box in the crowds if you want with people cheering from the e.u. something your leaders don't experience every day georg mathis joining us from romania thank you. but a quick check now some other stories making news around the world north korea appears to be going ahead with its first weapons test since the failed summit with the us president donald trump in february south korean authorities report two

failed attempt to spark a military uprising last week. now to our series of reports this week investigating what germans see as the big issues of our time correspondent kate brady has been traveling the country to find out what is on people's minds a big concern for many especially the young is climate change just a few weeks ago germany seemed to be leading the way in the fight against global warming but now it has fallen back on its commitments kate has been meeting people who say that the government now faces a stark choice. to end my journey across germany i'm traveling back to the capitol. where the german government is feeling the heat of climate change. between its love of cars and nuclear power phase out and the country's long goodbye to cofield energy gemini's struggling to meet climate goals. in recent weeks that very issue has been quite literally knocking on the
9:58 pm
government's front door. inspired by the swedish climate activists clear to too bad for the past four months hundreds and thousands of german school kids have been skipping school every friday demanding action against climate change university student louise annoyed power has become the face of the fridays the future movement in germany which is now backed by more than twenty six thousand scientists. we need our government to act now and i don't see that right now we keep burning fossil fuels knowing that they are destroying. and disturbing our climate to an extent that. we are struggling we will be struggling to stay alive in the long term and species are dying every day. once deemed a world champion in environmental protection it seems germany is at least now realizing that there's more to the fight against climate change the meticulously separating rubbish blushes heat wave alone brought home the harsh realities of
9:59 pm
climate change cargo ships brought to a standstill dried crops forest fires and damage to infrastructure. having missed is twenty twenty climate goals the german government is now looking ahead to twenty fifty with the aim of phasing out coal powered energy by twenty thirty eight but students like louisa want to see the end of that by twenty thirty at the latest. demonstrators have found to continue striking until they see more action from the government. if in twenty years' time your children or your grandchildren or the children of the neighbors will ask you what did you do back then when will you know what was so could change things where we could make a difference what you do and i'm telling this the government here we were to judge this government harshly. because we will look back at them and see that
10:00 pm
there were amongst the last ones you could actually change something and change the path we are on. knowing the consequences of what's happening if they don't do that . now pope francis has issued a ground breaking new law requiring all catholic priests and nuns to report clergy sex abuse and cover ups the papal decree covers abuse of both children and adults it requires every catholic diocese in the world to set up simple and accessible systems for reporting abuse and to provide protections for people making a report and also allows for suspected abuse to be reported directly to the vatican if needed. i'm joined now here in the studio by religious affairs correspondent martin gak to put all of this into perspective so i mean what exactly does this in now. i mean the first thing to be said is that it's it's really a massive announcement in the sense that this policy has been in place already in
10:01 pm
a couple of spots around the world but no it's really being presented as a top down sort of policy the man and it's being pushed through the entire church system so in principle it's understood as something that would affect sort of african nation not to marry and countries which you know have lists sort of questions of transparency and in which questions of reporting have not yet been fully addressed by the church how significant is the change. the change is very significant for this region's i mean but this very form of policy actually almost in the exact form is already in place in europe and north america. i think it is important to say that you know the question us should what the reporting will will what kind of effect it will have is completely the bender's contingent upon what kind what degree of success they have in convincing local authorities and local essentially berish is structured to reboard part of the issue is that of course the
10:02 pm
cover up was understood to be institutional but much of the thing that makes study institutional story is actually informal so that goes to say that if there are friendships are there are systems of safe play into these some in which there is no official sees them in those relations then those things will probably remain undercover but yeah undercover and also you know within the church system itself because there's no obligation here to report these issues just civilian authorities so what are we to make of that we have an obligation to report them to the church i mean the church itself has to actually take this up in a formal structure or through you know formal formal processes the question is really whether this is actually the end of the road or whether these sexually a preamble to the next step which effectively would be the turning of this information international authorities the turning of information to national authorities if you then suspicions and accusations is essentially most of what victims and advocacy groups are actually demanding for that to take place we know
10:03 pm
have pretty much disposed setting the ground so i think it's worthwhile saying that despite all the criticism and all the claims that much of the change in the church has been gus medic these things seem to come in waves and each wave seems to mound sort of on the previous one it is now conceivable that the next demand from the very top of the church will be actually turning information to national authorities at that stage that policy that is in place today would become a bully seat that would. binding for have said just you might as well forget about it this is a church we have in this is a church where we will have to assume that somebody that has been observing this for quite a while has claimed executive privilege and blocking lawmakers from getting the full report committee chairman jerrold nadler called trump's action quote an attack on the ability of the american people to know what the executive branch is doing this was a. this is a very grave and momentous step that we were forced to take today to move
10:04 pm
a contempt citation against the attorney general of the united states we did not relish doing this but we have no choice leave regrettable that elected representatives of the american people have chosen to engage in such inappropriate political theatrics no one including chairman adler and his committee will force the justice department to break the law so to be continued but first we're heading now to russia which is marking the seventy fourth anniversary of the soviet victory over nazi germany in world war two the main victory day celebration takes place in moscow's red square in a lavish parade thousands of troops marched in mass with president vladimir putin and other commentators victory day marks germany's surrender in one in forty five in russia it is celebrated a day later than elsewhere because the official documents were signed after midnight moscow time. our correspondent you know drugs or attended the event in red square that official part of the victory day parade is over this is
10:05 pm
a very important day for most russians they come together and it's not important whether they're communists or liberals or conservatives we've seen a parade with a lot of weapons sent we have seen tanks we have seen mobile short range ballistic missile systems and all of this is sending a political message no one can hurt us we've heard this message also from president putin who spoke to the crowds it's also not good for russia to show off its newest military equipment off the old only the u.s. is selling more arms than russia. now the people of sudan may have succeeded in removing long term dictator omar al bashir but that doesn't mean that they have won power for themselves leaders of the mass protests that sparked the removal of bashir say that the military council which replaced him is delaying the implementation of civilian rule protests however are set to continue the mass

says her family's thankful to the paying tribute to her father for his role in sudan's revolution. as a young woman she's inspired it is a female artist who took this initiative. in right from the beginning the idea of a woman coming here to paint was strange i had never seen anything like that and. seen men doing it but that a woman comes and does this it was new. a seal says she is just one of many women who have been a driving force in this uprising. she also wants to stand as a symbol for the freedom of artists in sudan and a catalyst for conversations about change in the future i think art is is the most important thing in revolutions because it's only thing in the visual thing that makes you feel like you're there you would appear not this art forces you to speak about what's happening you know today start just
10:09 pm
a specific person but it's what he died for in the cause that he died for i full full full the full of the military transitional council in favor of a civilian government that's the last demand is c.-l. and the community here have in their revolution. a seal hopes that for future generations in a free sudan the last remnants of the country's repressive regime will be these murals reminding everyone how that varies. system was overthrown. now in champions league football there was a nother stunning come from behind victory in the semifinals this time london's tottenham broke the hearts of i axed from answered and publicly l.a.'s has all the action for us now so what happened here well after of course very exciting match for liverpool in barcelona everyone thought this was going to be a more relaxing affair and it was far from a to say the least i x. took an early lead will say after five minutes and then they went to up before at
10:10 pm
the half time break so had their fans thinking about their travel plans for the final in madrid but then tottenham hit back hard to go straight after half time and then saying to nuke us mode out well he actually scored for it to two goals for tottenham as well he added the third and decisive goal in the very final minute of the match to steal victory and ensure and even funny because of course now tottenham two are going to be playing in their first european cup final and will be playing of course at liverpool and they were over the moon of course as you can imagine and they posted a pretty interesting video like call it interesting because it's blatantly them having a good time in their singing their voices may not be as good as they're fit for. it's obscene nice to see them they're over the moon delighted on their fans i have a good friend who's a ton fun she posed in the video and it was hilarious because it's you how shocked she was at that last minute goal now maybe support your team know their manager as
10:11 pm
well and was delighted obviously because you know all that hard work and all that effort that they've put in and is paying off at least so let's hear from him fighting. a sentence if you have these no pain no gain and i think some amazing thing because all that therefore that we made in the last five years. you know. it will work for us so. it was all worth it i mean really it's big tackler football that we're seeing in the champions league right now but you really have to kind of feel for i actually mean the fans today and the players they must really be just a point oh my god so disappointed is a is an understatement i was very sorry they were devastated because of course i last time they actually one day european cup or the times even course was back in one nine hundred ninety five so you know it's a long long time for them and and to be where they are because you know they saw
10:12 pm
big teams like a fantasy manager and so it's you know we're big feet for them it's a young team seven of the players on the field who are under twenty four so you know this is a team that invests heavily in their club and i'm sure that there's going to be bigger clubs sweeping around to see if they can snap up some of these rising stars so it's it's definitely devastating for them but all the same it's still great to see them in the semifinal at least ok we know where they're going next now we're seeing. madrid host an all english final with liverpool and tottenham you live in madrid our time is the city ready for this because i mean the english fans are not exactly known for being called well they're certainly they like to enjoy themselves that's for sure madrid is of course a city that's well used to big games like this is going to be a good game pack your sunglasses under some cream but we're going to be in for a big night of european football public supports thank you. you're watching deja vu news still to come deja vu news asia is the mounties on the way back to democracy
