7:02 am
between the u.s. and china germany is india's largest trading partner in europe to the shooting of $20000000000.00 u.s. dollars last year. well for more on this i'm now joined by our chief political editor she's in delhi following going to visit good to see german and indian leaders have met regularly in recent years so what's special about this one. special thing about is that she's brought part of her cabinet also including the foreign minister here and these government consultations as they're called who are set up to sort the after germany started consultations with india there was a strong feeling that both countries should be on a par when it comes to thinking about future relationships also particularly in terms of trade but having said that germany feels that this is a quite a way to go to actually find enough common ground here with india to have something like a free trade agreement with the european union that something germany is very keen
7:03 am
on and also this is the kind of big picture stuff but also the agriculture minister here as well she wants to talk about things like farming and safety standards picky when it comes to instance for food stuff that is being exported to the european union so it's from the small detail but also to the geostrategic out of of course always with a view on china. on another topic india president there and he has been criticized for his increasingly nationalist policies chancellor merkel going to address any of these issues. what one could expect her to do so if you ask for an official statement you will get pretty much standard from the german side saying that issues like human rights and global standards and international law. talks to world leaders at the same time there's a sense here of having a kindred spirit in terms of having the largest democracy after all india is the
7:04 am
largest democracy in the world foreign minister mass said he considers the issue of kashmir an internal affair for instance but also that people's rights should be preserved so be very interesting to hear whether there's any kind of official recognition of a frank exchange on that largest democracy and of course india the 2nd most populous country on the earth as well i mean compared to germany that is relatively small what is india hoping to achieve with these consultations. well germany is a partner who's seen as someone one can learn from the german education training system is always one of the big exports. in terms of business leaders and small medium enterprises that are here in the delegation this time around not really the big shots from the big companies so there's an appetite here for exchange and at the same time india knows that in terms of population it is almost always has
7:05 am
a race with china who is the most populous country in the years to come but a large population also means very very large potential and here germany said he wants to make sure it's one of the 1st partners when india decides to open up and talk more significant trade with the e.u. . chief political editor mechanic in delhi thank you very much. now to some the other stories making news around the world the so-called islamic state has confirmed the death of its leader the baghdadi american special forces assaulted by daddy's hideouts in northwestern syria on saturday a bit on the run since 2017 the terror group has named his successor. lebanese a president michel aoun has pledged to form a new technocratic government following the resignation of prime minister sad and
7:06 am
hariri off 2 weeks of widespread anti corruption protests lebanon's current political system requires post to be given to members of different when they just say it's something out wants to do away with. thousands of protesters have once again been gathering in chile's capital santiago to demand social change 2 weeks of protests have paralyzed the city and forced chilean president sebastian pinera to cancel 2 high profile international summits spain has now off the toast one of them the united nations climate summit in december. to a historic vote in the u.s. congress now where democrats in the house of representatives have taken a major step in that efforts to impeach president donald trump voting to proceed formally and publicly with their investigation the resignation sets out the ground rules that lawmakers will use and pave the way for public hearings on whether trump misused the power of his office. the weather on capitol hill couldn't have been
7:07 am
more symbolic the vote in the house of representatives means an uncertain future to the trump presidency this 232 yes to 196 nays the democratic controlled house adopted a resolution allowing more transparency in the impeachment inquiry the vote came after a heated debate this is soviet style rules baby in the soviet union you do things like this where only you make the rules there are no kings or queens in america that is what separates this country from so many other nations no one is above the law at the heart of the impeachment inquiry is president trump's july phone call with ukrainian president. a whistle. laura accused trump of pressing ukraine to investigate against a political rival democrats see that as an act of abuse of power but from now on
7:08 am
there is no return for the democrats but the way forward is a risky one today's vote some are concerned that impeaching president trump might eventually backfire in excuse election those are some of the hopes of the republican party minority leader kevin mccarthy sees the inquiry as a partisan power battle they face doubt about the credibility of the whistleblower and the motivation of the democrats ask me every single member of congress that now has a transcript of a phone call what is the impeachable offense so i'll make you this one promise. republicans believe in the constitution we believe in the rule of law and that's why we're standing here today. democrat congressman al green is an outspoken supporter of impeaching president trump he stresses the democrats have no other choice when it comes to impeachment and balance the power of the constitution
7:09 am
protecting you know preserving the republic you have to put principle politics you have to know that you do not allow your personal ambitions to become an impediment to protecting the country. the impeachment inquiry will now take place in the open despite the political risks involved in trying to remove president trump from office the democrats clearly feel the time for caution is over. well to talk more about this now i'm joined here in the studio by william know what the across a good morning to you to begin with how does this actually change the impeachment process so what happened is basically democrats want to formalize what they have already been doing they've been meeting in secret in closed door testimony gathering statements from a variety of witnesses within the white house with other parts of trump's government now they want to make that public and what that's going to do is it's
7:10 am
going to allow donald trump to build a with his lawyers in the white house lawyers to cross-examine witnesses republicans will call their own witnesses will become a slightly more transparent operation but of course the democrats are still very much in control here although republicans will now have more rights and donald trump will have more legal protections democrats can still override request that they don't see as appropriate things they don't want to come to the fore so it's going to be more public we can expect a lot more a spectacle now that congress people know that they're on even more than comfortable know they're on television and which is another on television so it's going to be a. a very different dynamic them closed door testimony where we've only have heard so far drips and drabs but on that no the most important thing is or one of the most important things is that the testimony from these closed door meetings will now become public so far we've only had some leaks and what democrats have wanted us to hear and now we're going to see the full picture of what these closed door
7:11 am
testimony is have have produced in addition to some of these what is now coming back to testify again publicly i suppose the thing that i'm wondering is why now though because we are dealing with such a partisan environment which could potentially be dangerous well hyper partisan i mean to put it to put it in one way to democrats broke with their party to vote against continuing with this impeachment inquiry the republicans in their press conference call that a bipartisan vote so by their definition bipartisan is just getting 2 out of $200.00 plus democrats to vote with them that's that's hardly bipartisan of if you listen to democrats they're saying they've course didn't want this to happen palosi was dragged almost into supporting an impeachment process this was not of a saw as a politically savvy mood especially in advance of an election the public was not with it but they're saying this rises above that it's congress's job to check the executive branch to check abuse of power which is what the allegations are here against donald trump i mean you know wake is aside i think we have to broaden this
7:12 am
out and then ask where does the american public stand on impeachment proceedings that's what matters at the end of the day it matters it's also very tricky because polls any kind of poll can can give us all kinds of information the pentagon has that they have these questions are asked for example there's more support for there to be an inquiry into the impeachment to actually impeach or even remove president trump nonetheless there's already been a majority of support among americans for a pitch for impeachment inquiry even to remove him from office or support for that but it might not matter donald trump proved in 2016 that you don't need to win majorities from the center to govern he has been able to. energize his core base which delivered him in election 2016 and although his his approval ratings have been in the low to mid forty's consistently for most of his time as president that doesn't seem to worry him too much and he's still a strong candidate going into 2020 so normally politicians want to win the center want to win the majority here the majority might not matter well let's talk about
7:13 am
the core base at least in the republican party then with regards to you know make his i mean they did stand behind him in this vote any chance that we might see some republican lawmakers eventually pain away i mean really who knows because we are in such unprecedented territory here this is only the 3rd time that a president has faced the possibility of impeachment and no historical event really matches this one to draw good comparisons in the senate to actually convict trump if that were to go to the senate and to remove him would require 20 additional republicans and given this hyper partisan environment that's just so unlikely to be seen that said republicans like to build themselves as the party of national security and this case hinges on national security president trump is accused of undermining and violating u.s. national security for his own political interests that's the charge as the evidence comes out as we move from a private private hearings to public testimony want to see what comes out of something really big comes out and the evidence is overwhelming that donald trump
7:14 am
used his power his power and his privilege for his own political interest and undermine u.s. national security may be enough for some republicans to peel away but looking at the way that the hyper partisan environment in washington right now and has been for years even before trump i just it's it will be interesting to see if that really happened last night in times as have a d.w.i. what do you know if he crossed good to talk to you as a thank you. well the german president has been marking the end of a year long celebration of a german american friendship called together find about this time i's visit to the united states comes at a difficult time for us in german relations with tensions over trade and defense spending. it was a glorious new england full welcome for the german president oh yes a tour of a park that commemorates the 18th century american revolutionary war was just one stop in a packed schedule and by this next president drop by the former home turned museum

of the founder of the 5 high school copious where he was shown around by the granddaughter of the famous german architect it's the emigrated to the united states and in 1939 anything in the. boston politics was on the agenda with the president focusing on the positives of germany's relationship with the united states and the environment. with our presence here and we want to show that despite the current big disagreements we are still working hard on a long standing relationship that we on best in culture in science and upon all in human relationships funding of all indeed mention but soon. the good to institute was behind the vuln together initiative in collaboration with germany's foreign office and the federation of german industries at a time when the political relationship between germany and the us has been fraught
7:16 am
all 50 us states have hosted a number of different events to celebrate the 2 countries longstanding friendship. the media the media right to concentrate on big politics so that's why sometimes people forget that the foundations on which our relationship stand is solid and far reaching is something realized across the country come out of their combined to top off the day presidents time i address the audience at the boston symphony hall where he stressed the need for germany and the us to remain together now and in the future thank you. thank you. to zimbabwe now and they're called the cashing go all the brave ones and they make up the ranks of an all women anti-poaching it all started in 2017 this unit unique unit takes marginalized women who have faced hardship and turns them into elite rangers its founder says that the project is changing attitudes to gender conservation and

7:18 am
ranges known as the or the brave one started in 2017 the program aims to turn disadvantaged abused and often young women from local communities into wildlife advocates despite breaking her finger give it so keep going. that's why i'm going to claim. i'm going to be action get killed. in the end of it so made the cut to become an actor singer ranger the initiative in northern symbolic is run by the international anti poaching foundation created in 2009 but strayed in sniping doing amanda a dangerous job after spending time in the special forces and working in private security in iraq he found a new purpose in conservation what we found with this program is that women's ability to naturally deescalate tension and work with the communities they come
7:19 am
from we're not having a war with the local community and the government has hasn't had to make a choice between conservation or communities in so many ways women have become the bridge that conservation had to build into these communities in the 16 years before the program was launched 8000 elephants were killed in this area since the rangers a rival 2 years ago elephant poaching has dropped by 80 percent in this time the woman made $115.00 a race without a single shot fired. well the men's rugby world cup final takes place on saturday with south africa facing england in yokohama japan england are on a high after defeating twice champions australia and holders new zealand in the last 2 rounds south africa have had an easier route to the final and welcome back a key player from injury. it's finally crunch time at the rugby world cup after the tournament spread over 3 months england coach eddie jones will send his
7:20 am
side out as clear favorites for the final against south africa we just want to imply the great thing for us is that we've now with done the preparation we know we've done the preparation we're ready for this occasion you know we have spent 4 years getting ready for this occasion so that's why the players can be relax as for . could be relaxed because we now have done the work rugby can be a brutal business 2003 winners in the end have been forced to do it the hard way this time around and victory in your karma will therefore feel extra special according to one former player. if they were to be traded when the call to follow is even the setting for those who after the fall of anyone could. probably including new zealand's efforts for the last 8 years probably be the best world cup she would have already put south africa still have a chance a team forged in the image of the rainbow nation have produced
7:21 am
a series of dog displays in japan. the springboks tilt a 3rd world cup title has also been given a boost by the return from injury of one of their top stars. always keep my. neighbor girl on the field. since. she's being selfish i think as a player. the stage is set for an intriguing final in one of the trophy schools on the planets but only one team can reach their goal. meadows who brought us that report joins me now from sports good to see marc now off the throne and the all blacks last weekend i mean england all clearly the favorites going into this game going into the final but what are your expectations for the game ruby has a happy it of spring surprises i mean we saw that last weekend with new zealand the twice defending champions being completely overrun by which no one really expected
7:22 am
so so that because still have a chance but yes england are the better team i mean they've really grown in this tournament and i think if you look at it on paper every single position apart from maybe the winner is so that fricken guy in and a better man to man so i'm saying it. when but i will also say that normally rugby world cup finals a very very tense affairs there's not much flowing robey going on there is a lot at stake so it will be probably quite dour but i think in a more just emerges champions why though i mean what are the qualities of the english side do you think and i mean the qualities of that well australia coach i should say eddie jones yes indeed they've got instead in coaching he's a very level headed gaiety jones doesn't get too excited when they win he doesn't get too distraught when they lose but actually was quite bold in the year ahead of this tournament he kind of had his team ready for who he wanted to play in the world cup and then you realise some of his older players were out of form and he
7:23 am
very boldly brought in a lot of young players and that was a surprise that was not really what eddie jones normally does but it's worked perfectly and against museum the defense was absolutely stupid the key thing is to not give away penalties i mean gave away very few against new zealand and didn't give them a chance so if the defense plays that again they'll be fine that said i mean the last time both teams met in a world cup final i think it was 12 years ago right south africa won that i mean could that be happy perhaps for the springboks maybe to have that in the back of their mind yeah i mean every single time so africa have been in a ruby world cup final they've won it england have been in 3 finals and lost 2 so yes so that's a good definitely have a have a chance and that will be certainly in their mind but even i think the biggest south african rugby fans will say this team is nowhere near as good as the team that won and beat england in 2007 and had bryan habana. tearing down the wing the
7:24 am
best player in the tournament they haven't really got that class this time but. they've still got a chance it's roku and what do you think i mean taking the rugby world cup title then could mean for south africa coming into slightly as the underdogs perhaps well it is a massive thing for south africa mainly because people remember they wanted 2007 but they also won in 1905. relatively recently after the end of apartheid and people have seen the film invictus might remember nelson mandela there with the captain francois pienaar holding up the webb ellis trophy a mandela really use that to him and inside africa to bring the races together in the rainbow nation he was there in the springbok jersey which up until that point had only been a symbol of white south africa and nelson mandela really showed his kind of conciliatory element of his character with that great performance in in johannesburg and what will make this extra special for south africa if they can somehow do it is they have a 1st male black captain c. a khaleesi now he has complete very humble background he was actually born
7:25 am
a day after the apartheid laws were 1st repealed in south africa in 1901 and he comes from a township and he said i would love to lift that will cook trophy to show young black men from the townships that they can achieve anything in the modern south africa even with all the economic and political problems that have been of late so as a fairy tale sporting fairy tale neutrals may well want so that's a good to win but if you're talking pure rugby into the better side and if they can pull off the southern hemisphere slam as it's being called that's beating australia new zealand and then south africa that is something very very special all right. thank you. well this is g.w. news these are our top stories germany's chancellor angela merkel has arrived in india for a 3 day visit that will focus on boosting trade and business ties she's keen to promote the exchange of technology smart cities renewable energies and transport
