4:18 pm
seriously to pull u.s. troops out well the government always takes the best trick even if it's only respect seriously but at the same time they come to the same conclusion as a very young group 45 in front. to important and there's hundreds of millions of euros being spent on investment there from the american side so the threshold to do something like that would be extremely high on the other hand it's times of donald trump and we've seen him change policy with the tweets. we have to say that some here in berlin especially also in the defense ministry do agree with donald trump that germany could be contributing more to defense when it comes to its contributions to nato so in a sense he does have a point there that yes germany is still a far cry from reaching 2 percent in defense spending and come on by the new defense minister conservative c.d.u. party who also wants to become next when and if machall goes she made

china so there's a very very long list to go through and with the american ambassador here and by the never being so high of pressuring german businesses as he did on north stream and also making a lot of diplomatic noise on the very issue of defense there's a very uncertain future on how much more pressure there will be on this vital transatlantic relationship both sides still stressed that it is indeed that i told our chief political editor mr cooper thank you for that analysis. the world's oldest film festival has opened in venice with a total of $21.00 films vying for the coveted golden lion the lineup includes plenty of hollywood heavyweights including brad pitt trying to death and meryl streep but it was a film starring 2 leading ladies from france that kicked off the competition. it once again it's time to see and be seen actors and directors bring their newest
