6:08 pm
a patron and a meeting in the german capital and they're about to hold a press conference begin this into what they're about to say. that we have so many serious and full conflicts in the world we need to look for solutions we have a special responsibility both germany and especially russia because russia is a permanent member of the u.n. security council we need solutions you know all those problems. primarily. ukraine this is something we've been working on for a long time. you have to see that so for. don't have. stable she is far so seeing that school year will start soon i hope that we could discuss
6:09 pm
a lasting cease fire and set up a commission. to contribute to the peace process in germany are ready to get involved in this work you know and we will also talk about. the us i think that. ukraine should continue to be involved in gas transfer to europe even after the in the north stream to pipeline use launched. another important subject is syria of course. you know we should do something about the humanitarian disaster in this country. it's more some progress has been made but. this situation is so far from being that she was normal once you get this fighting off. so we
6:10 pm
particularly hope that that we could take some specific steps with the constitutional commission we support the efforts by u.n. special envoy stuff from de mistura. on the joint comprehensive plan of action. with iran we would like to preserve the deal but we are also concerned about the missile program of iran so we'll also discuss this subject elements like. this is something that we've been talking to minister lavrov about earlier in the sought she will also discuss how a bilateral relations naturally we have the year of russia in germany in the year of germany in russia this is a good opportunity to learn more about each other. and continue our dialogue.
6:11 pm
really. civil societies can work together. i think all matters can be resolved through dialogue so i really look forward to these talks and now i would ask president putin to say a few words but if you get what i would choose to i'm very happy that we have an opportunity to have this working meeting. and we can talk about our bilateral relations. but sure he shoots on the international agenda. so you know when you russia. thinks it is. extremely important to work with germany. on a variety of issues and then you will talk about our. your money he's one of our leading partners in trade. i want a bit of a list here of three grew by twenty two percent. reaching fifty billion dollars and
6:12 pm
generally to june this year we had it in the other twenty five percent you can see that he's getting german investment in russia. seventeen billion dollars over five thousand german companies work in russia. total of all you treated over fifty billion dollars really over two hundred seventy thousand ample yes but with that at the other hand we have fifteen hundred russian companies working in germany. contributing over eight billion dollars to various sectors of the german economy that actually is yes they're going to go in particular weak operate. sector. and germany is one of the primary buyers of russian energy resources that we've supplied between will create a million cubic meters of gas but to germany consumption of russian gas in germany
6:13 pm
keeps growing this year it increased by thirty per cent germany in the glacier it is not just the major market for russian exporters it also plays an important role in transit to other european countries and i feel this year marks fifty years since the beginning of. a russian gas deliveries to western europe and throughout this time russia has been a reliable partner delivering natural gas to europe making an important contribution to energy security through going to. a continent working together with our. partners why would we build a nordstrom's to project but we hope that this project will improve the european energy system diversify gas delivery routes and will meet the
6:14 pm
increasing demand of the european economy which is. natural gas once again i'd like to stress that the nordstrom's two is a purely economic project does not mean that gas transit through ukraine will now stop i'm aware of. the federal chancellor's position if she keeps raising this issue. all that matters to us is that this transit and that he is economically feasible makes economic sense. we hope that we expand our contribution another year is as well as regards and cooperation localizing the production of high tech products in russia we discussed such projects at the same petersburg economic reforms we're also developing our humanitarian operation. but we'll have
6:15 pm
a year of concentration between municipalities and regional and i can already but there is also. a year of scientific partnership a year of germany in russia and vice versa but we are also rebuilding our ties between the two parliaments in june we had a delegation of other visiting parliament in moscow. which set up a long letter all commission which involves the in this state duma representatives and members of. our civil societies continue working together. that's sort of the heart of the st petersburg dialogue. as regards international issues madam chancellor just mentioned some of the things that we are going to discuss today we'll talk about the situation it would be here any nuclear program and the joint
6:16 pm
comprehensive plan of action and that is that. we get is extremely important to preserve the deal which has been reached with the direct involvement of the u.n. security council to strengthening the nonproliferation regime we will also talk about the middle east of course and syria specifically we need to step up our humanitarian efforts in the syrian conflict and we need to deliver humanitarian aid to the people of syria we need to how the areas. where refugees can return. talking about refugees living in europe of course even though this is when you need you also this also makes sense but in jordan there are millions of refugees in lebanon in turkey there are three million refugees and this is a huge burden for europe so we should do our best to help those people return to their homes which was we need to help rebuild the water supply. how thier
6:17 pm
services. i think everybody's interested in that. we're going to give a grade of course we'll also talk about ukraine. as the madam chancellor has said. and you can given the current state of the crisis unfortunately we don't see much progress we don't see them. implemented and i want to go for them when you can we will continue working in the normandy for the format and then we will continue providing assistance to the un mission working there when we hopefully will. progress in the series world used so in general we have a lot of things we need to cover once again i would like to see i'm grateful to you madam chancellor for the supper tonight to thank you. for watching. over ok we're just listening there to
6:18 pm
a joint press conference that amir putin and anglo-american before they hold their meeting which is just about to take place they did say they're going to talk about a range of issues from ukraine to iran to or also syria and also trade between the countries and also energy supplies to an awful lot to talk about and we'll be across it for you throughout the evening now meanwhile with the syrian army restart mission control. across the country efforts are underway to rebuild a shattered nation in the latest in a series of reports he goes you've done of travel to the city of aleppo to see how locals is slowly picking up the pieces. much of the city of aleppo is still in ruins reviving it to its former glory is a task of gargantuan proportions and of immense political and economic importance
6:19 pm
the citadel of aleppo has become the symbol of the city's resistance. but our lipo is much more than just a maze of antique streets and attractions from history books. the militants have stolen computer units with chips for the machines they destroyed the factory on purpose they wanted to damage syrian industry as a home and specifically industry in aleppo reviving this that. would. see one forever to go over this area. and feet and basically very
6:20 pm
dysfunctional hunker. down want to be immense but now that the former industrial hub is slowly getting back on track things are finally looking up for the people of aleppo. two years ago during the war we couldn't even open our shops the shelling snipers were everywhere you couldn't live under such circumstances we covered the roof of the building back then so that we could take cover it was unbearable we took shelter for about half an hour whenever the shelling started we just locked ourselves in here thank god now we can work peacefully day and night we just hang around. just like the good old days the under joe a little the atmosphere is really good around here the weather is nice everybody is feeling safe and it's only getting better you can see getting better day by day. i was lucky enough not to leave my home the wind this is the district the rebels couldn't get to at the time there was
6:21 pm
a blockade once but it was firmly lifted now saying god things are better despite all the things we've been through we're no better than one of them when you know it's safe you can return home if your house lies in ruins you can still fix it the main thing is it's safe now. just a couple of years ago these turned used to protect people in the street from falling shows and debris well now they're sheltering them from the sun historically the city of aleppo has been the economic capital of syria and now with the world gone finally some traders are coming back to the streets. of reporting from aleppo in syria. meanwhile the u.s. state department says it will redirect american stabilisation funding planned for syria to other foreign policy efforts washington insists though this will not affect its humanitarian assistance program when it comes to saudi arabia pledges
6:22 pm
one hundred million dollars to syrian reconstruction projects however that money will only go to the northeast of syria a region under the control of u.s. backed kurdish forces and while some programs are cut others remain in place with the u.s. saying it will stay in syria for some time yet to fight against the last pockets of terrorists we remaining in syria the focus is the ensuring defeat of isis we still have not launched the final phase to defeat the physical caliphate this is actually being prepared now and that will come at a time for choosing but it is coming. well you're sure landis head of middle east studies at the university of oklahoma says that america's interests in syria do you go beyond fighting terrorism. the united states does not want assad to become too strong there are hoping to keep leverage in order to try to push iran out of the country to get a better deal for the kurds and and of course they're also worried about what's
6:23 pm
going to happen if their province where there are very complex negotiations and and russia is at the heart of that so there are many competing agendas in washington and as long as president trump is not spending a lot of money there i think he's happy to keep a few thousand troops if that increases america's leverage. on the situation in syria will be just one of a number of subjects up for discussion in talks going on right now in berlin between i'm glad hawkins joins us live now from the german capital dan there's a press conference was in the between the two leaders just a few minutes ago hinting perhaps that's what they will be discussing. indeed that press conference concluded literally about two three minutes or so ago so i'm just getting updates and as they're coming in no surprise the hot topics up for discussion as predicted confirmed by both parties ukraine syria north stream to
6:24 pm

6:26 pm
board merkel has remained and maintained that relationship with mr putin that has always remained in the two leaders do you see eye to eye on issues such as the iran nuclear deal that's something else that mrs merkel mentioned today germany's commitment to that deal and the importance of keeping up the dog there as well as but actual trade mr putin mentioning the thousands of german companies present in russia and russian companies in germany stating that trade had gone up by around twenty two percent in recent months and years as well as we said earlier through mrs merkel's knowledge of russian mr putin is lot of the german that relationship has always remained cool deal with both leaders hoping to take something out of this meeting mrs merkel to reinforce her position. as one of the leaders of europe in the go shares with russia and mr putin in taking those steps to ending russia's isolation through those sanctions.
6:27 pm
