7:06 am
to mark the 70th anniversary of the military alliance is found but it was a brief show of army before a renewed airing of differences between the french and american presidents. continued at a news conference with president trump in his new role as a defender of nato after having long been its main critic. would you like some nice isis fighters you could give them. you could get everyone you want. not quite cordial combative tone pervaded the news conference with u.s. president donald trump and his french counterpart have manual mark hong at the nato meeting in london on tuesday trump sharply rebuked mccraw for saying in an interview with the magazine the economist last month that quote what we are currently experiencing is the brain death of nato. it's a very tough statement to make when you have such
7:07 am
a gross. perhaps you're what's happened with the rest of you look at what's going on during certain parts of this exhibit her of the year and you just can't go around making statements like you know it's very disrespectful. micron however did not back down. i knew that from my statement we saw factions shake a little bit a lot of people have done. the 2 leaders seem to have differing visions of the role of nato they don't want to write and frankly one of the benefits really the least is the united states we better believe we're helping your. people. we are. one. and. another of the alliances big players german chancellor angela merkel remains upbeat
7:08 am
about nato with all of the differences here but of course we'll have to discuss them we have to talk about the future of nato and the strategic partnership i'm fairly optimistic about this meeting mr. optimism alone however it will not be enough to bridge the divide within the alliance. well another point of contention at that nato summit is member state turkey's military intervention in northern syria a 2 months ago turkish troops moved into syria to clear out kurdish fighters from the border area there girl wants to resettle syrian refugees living inside turkey in that region in syria. a turkish patrol unit in the northern syrian city of. on the border with turkey this is where our wants to resettle syrian refugees from turkey in a so-called safe zone as quickly as possible. the safe zone would stretch about 100 kilometers westward from rahsaan line to. but the area lacks housing hospitals and
7:09 am
schools so is seeking money from the european union to fund construction work something the representative of president karen o. wants a k.p. party in the turkish border town of jail on peanut are this keen to emphasize this they should support turkey so that all the refugees can return to their homeland and live a good life through an invasion piece but there have been repeated explosions within the plant safe zone several people have been killed blames the kurdish y.p. jean militia others say the so-called islamic state is responsible. kurds in the region are deeply skeptical about whether that zone should be regarded as safe. as we should with the current situation the united nations should really intervene. many kurds make it clear that turkish troops are not welcome here greeting their tanks with a barrage of stones. well nato member turkey launched that offensive into syria in
7:10 am
coordination with nato is adversary russia and how far is moscow willing to go to weaken nato by bringing turkey into its sphere of influence let's cross over now and talk about that would be sure one in moscow good morning. nato leaders have sharply criticized turkey for deepening its cooperation with moscow what's the kremlin saying about that. well the kremlin spokesperson to meet his coach was actually asked about the deepening partnership yesterday and he kind of said that countries should be able to be partners with whichever countries they want to be partners with and that that partnership with russia shouldn't get in the way of a partnership with nato for turkey so essentially anyone can be friends that's kind of what he was saying but i think in this case actions speak much louder than words in the signals that we're getting in terms of russia and turkey's behavior
7:11 am
certainly don't seem to signal that this partnership will stop you mentioned syria in syria the 2 countries have been conducting joint patrols despite the fact that they're on opposing sides in that war there in syria with turkey turkey supporting the opposition and russia supporting president assad and economically as well we've seen a lot of actions there between the 2 countries they're very close partners with there's going to be a launch of a new gas pipeline turk stream very soon which runs between the 2 countries directly so i think you know we can see that partnership isn't going to stop anytime soon rather than was on all of you strategic energy poles we were seeing between the 2 countries but turkey is also buying advanced weapons systems we're talking about the missile system yes 400 from russia can you tell us about that. well absolutely i think that the partnership that we're seeing between turkey and
7:12 am
russia is kind of a strategic partnership in defiance of the west in many ways and i think the s. 400 missile system is a perfect example for that that's the myself system that russia has been selling to turkey many of the deliveries have actually already the raw arrive to turkey and that has been much to the dismay of nato they've basically been saying you can't buy weapons from our adversary but actually the 2 countries have gone even further in a meeting in august between aired on and putin we even saw the 2 leaders saying that they wanted to cooperate much more when it comes to the military that they might even build weapons together and said that he might consider buying fighter jets from russia so this certainly seems to be a kind of. you know showing showing off their defiance and showing off that they can do whatever they want despite what the west wants and despite what nato wants
7:13 am
emily thanks so much for looking into this deepening relationship between turkey and russia thanks very much from moscow. well here in germany authorities now believe that russian intelligence services were involved in the murder of a former chechen rebel commander here in berlin. really was shot twice in the head in broad daylight in a berlin park now if this connection is confirmed the murder could have wider implications for german and your relations with russia soon after the murder in berlin suspicion of rumors that the russian intelligence services were involved victim of georgia national fault in the chechen war against the russian government . this is affected killers of 49 year old russian currently in custody reports say germany's federal prosecutor now also suspects the involvement of russian intelligence and is planning to take over the investigation is funded through the phone and there's a lot of evidence including the fact that the suspect was already wanted for murder
7:14 am
in russia then he disappeared before reappearing under a new identity that's one of the key factors here. the murder in berlin could be similar to the poison gas attack carried out in britain on double agent. and his daughter in march 27 scene and that prompted many western countries to impose sanctions on russia conservative foreign affairs expert odorless keys of eta says the german government will also need to respond so dizzy should it become clear that indeed russian government agencies were involved in this contract killing we must respond this specially with sanctions and we need a cool ordinated european response as we had in the screen case. the russian government denies any involvement in the murder and is so far refusing to cooperate in the investigation. as the philippines now typhoon comerica has moved away from the philippines and weakened into
7:15 am
a tropical storm it's left at least 11 people dead plane up efforts and repairs are now under way some half a 1000000 people were driven from their homes by the typhoon more than 500 flights were canceled at the no international airport was shut down operations authorities are now working on getting operations back to normal there. let's bring in now from the no ah good morning to you and you know now that the storm has moved on can you give us an idea of just how bad the situation is where your. as you can see the sun is. rising we are so this has a government official to go visit the affected communities and start doing a more detail damage assessment of you know that dental destruction on income very. now the other thing that's also happening because the weather has improved is those who were preemptively evacuated as the thinking that there are now being
7:16 am
allowed to go home so while these 2 things are happening we'll be able to gather a better picture of really that down to the structures that i think that's just getting in the way is that there are lines and communication lines that are still down so coordination and all the data of those efforts and it'll take you know getting it that's getting in the brain but with this we can expect that possibly there are in your report the number of casualties and damage it may go up once we get a better and now picture coming in from the ground ok it's already is there i'm still getting it getting an assessment of how bad things are how long is it going to take for the worst hit parts of the country to recover. that's really going to be too early to tell right now while we're doing i guess testament they have done it i can tell you though that a local government official told me that in his locality there's about 10000 people will tell not go home because their homes were going to be destroyed and their
7:17 am
livelihood throughput be destroyed as well so that's going to be a priority for the government 1st to get those people who are ready to go out and get a minimal damage to their homes get them up on their feet assume the possible but it will have the fair a more long term and sustainable plan for those who would form for completely destroy the sun so thanks very much for the from bill. well europe needs to step up its game to prevent biodiversity loss and to counter climate change in 2020 and beyond. that is the conclusion of the. european environment agency which said the situation is worse than previous report 5 years ago meanwhile climate activists. in the portuguese capital lisbon after sailing from the us by. the final moments of a nearly 3 week journey across the atlantic ocean from the united states to lisbon
