7:03 pm
nature of how the chinese communist party trying his governing entity views the world and we should speak frankly about such things i know germany too is facing its decision about how to handle its telecommunications network this isn't just a simple decision it's complicated but it comes in the face of the challenges that are presented by the chinese communist party i quote i spent a fair amount of time this morning as he said talking about syria and the united states will continue to monitor the cease fire and hold human rights violators they're accountable we're investigating allegations of war crimes and will continue to deliver on our humanitarian mission there and we'll keep our urging russia and turkey and the regime its allies not to take steps that would further destabilize that already difficult region that has caused the mass displacement and refugee flows that we have already seen. i know too the germany prides itself on being an important and valuable multilateral partner and i express my deep appreciation for
7:04 pm
germany's commitment to multilateral efforts that are in both our interest as well as in europe's interest germany's been a great partner in supporting our efforts to attempt to denuclearize north korea you maintain pressure on russia to meet its commitments to implement the minsk agreements you stood alongside the united states and many european partners trying to achieve democracy in venezuela and in september you stood along with france in the united kingdom in ascribing responsibility for the iran attacks or 1st before the attacks by iran on saudi oil facilities. each of these issues as at its core the mission of protecting an animal rights and human dignity something the communists of east germany failed to do for so many years i look forward to working with you heiko to protect our shared values there's no better way to do that than to be here to remember the victory of 1989 i go thank you for hosting me on this
7:05 pm
very memorable visit i will certainly never forget it thank you the. time a couple of questions and the 1st from this coming from. yes. for you just want to talk to. him mr secretary you mentioned the events in northern syria the french president in an interview that he caved to camp that night it was brain dead and the chance like strongly rejected that statement do you do that to kind of question it as to the secretary. oh. i'm sorry what was the 2nd question. i didn't get the 2nd question. he.
7:06 pm
wanted. us. to so you know i think you asked that in the right context that we were in this place where. nations of democratic values work so closely together for a long time to achieve what happened in 1989 and then again in 1990. remarkable work that created freedom and brought millions of people out of very very difficult situations i think nato remains an important critical perhaps historically one of the most critical strategic partnerships in all of recorded history that's why it's frankly that's why when you hear president from talk about the fact that we need to make sure that every nation shares that burden every nation works alongside its why i walk on the comments from. a k.-k. who said we're prepared to do this by 2031 to get to the west commit by 2031 i'm
7:07 pm
happy to hear that it's that relationship that is that nato alliance that is so central so important that's why it is an absolute imperative the every country participate and join in and contribute appropriately to achieving that shared security mission. no i do not believe that nature it's brainard a problem fest i'm the internet's or not it's as a mom i mean when i was in court. all turned about fall because we are increasingly facing challenges of a global character and nato is the aligns in which we cooperate on security policy issues our core issue interest is to in guarantee our security interests in europe and nato does just fact and this is why we are grateful to our american partners for their contribution to. europe's is security.
7:08 pm
to go so we have to make sure that the alliance continues to cooperate in the face of a number of difficult tests we've been put to. the challenges and should not be downplayed in their importance those that we are facing but we have an interest in the unity of nature and its ability to take action we should or would have that very interest . trees. i think. are that go mr miles you mentioned ukraine. as it struggles to fight corruption i should feel like creigh suffered a setback with what happened. in washington and he's of the ukraine traveled ministrations actually this this year and mr pun pale secretary pompei oh you have said that investor mckinley. did not make known. his
7:09 pm
objections over the recalling of ambassador out of it but he has testified that 3 times he directly appealed to you to make a statement and her support you did not why not. do they call. this. repeal leave to there is a very positive momentum in ukraine right now which began with the election of presidency linsky and this is why we intend to support the president in his endeavors yes 2 priorities the 1st of which is fighting corruption. over the past 3 years germany has already supported the ukraine with 1500000000 euros and we will continue to support projects in crane that are being set in motion as part of the refocus and his 2nd priority is to achieve peace in don boss and he had to thanks for being with us we want to take that to the press conference there from berlin with the u.s.
7:10 pm
secretary of state might compare his german counterpart because we want to hear my compares reaction to what the several things french president emmanuel mccrone has described the nato alliance as brain dead due to a lack of u.s. leadership the secretary of state addressed that just a few moments ago and earlier in the day my pompei i had been tweeting about iran saying that iran's plans to increase its nuclear activity raise concerns that its position itself for a rapid nuclear breakout is now time he said for all nations to reject its nuclear extortion of increased pressure as yet this press conference has touched on iran let's get some reaction to what we've just heard bow for some analysis rather from adversaries alan fischer who's been listening in in washington what do you make of it allan. i actually do you know i'll be interested to hear what my pump is going to say but the question on ukraine because he's been directly asked why he may have misled the american base was not
7:11 pm
a cause is that someone said and well what happened in washington this year was that we provided $250000000.00 worth of security assistance defense assistance and i $140000000.00 or so of additional security assistance just like happened in fiscal year 18 and fiscal year 17 and the united states' efforts to continue to fight corruption continue throughout this year so that's what happened in washington with respect to ukraine this year and i think that's important because here i sit in europe a place that understands deeply the challenges of corruption in ukraine to stocks about those risks to europe incessantly and properly and importantly and our administration to the united states has been very worried about ukrainian corruption it's been something that's been at the center of the state department's mission set and something that we worked last year and we will work again in the year ahead trying to make sure that presidents lynskey has the opportunity to root out corruption inside of his own country and as for best we can i i clearly follow this
7:12 pm
a lot less than you do i haven't had the chance that pretty busy world out there i've had a chance to follow this but with respect to master mckinley i think i think he said at the opening statement that he put out that he wasn't particularly involved in the ukraine fall so it's not surprising that when embassador event of issue return to the united states that he didn't raise that issue with me. that's that it should it shouldn't it shouldn't surprise anyone that in may when that took place he didn't say a thing to me. ok let's go back to washington that was the answer you were waiting for allan what did you make of that. well that's kind of interesting because that links same to impeachment anytime a senior official in the u.s. administration is asked the boat ukraine you know the underlying question is water boat impeachment and certainly the question there was that donald trump said as one point in his defense with ukraine he was holding back money because others were doing their share and the german foreign minister is saying look we put in
7:13 pm
1500000000 euros so we were the question about the ambassador the ambassador evidence said that 3 times he said to my pompey oh you need a statement supporting the bastard or that was being recalled by donald trump at the behest of rudy giuliani and others. saying there that it was never raise so that's very interesting to go back to the original question that you asked about iran certainly thinks there is a window of opportunity here we know that they pulled out of the iran nuclear deal because they wanted to force around back to the table to restart negotiations something they raney and have always been vehemently opposed to and certainly something that the european allies have said that they're not interested in doing at the moment because they see iran very much in compliance with what was agreed however there is some concern among european allies that iran is stepping up its nuclear activity and so might prompt sees
7:14 pm
a very small window of opportunity here where he can perhaps push some of the waverers in europe to back their campaign of maximum pressure to try and force iran back to the negotiating table he already believes that there is certainly pressure on the banking an oil sector we know about the sanctions that have been imposed by the u.s. this is know about a diplomatic push so he is saying look there is a. window of opportunity here and that is why he is making the statements he's making particularly in europe to europe to try and get them to alter their position on iran and add even more pressure on to the government in tehran or it will stay listening to that press conference in berlin we'll bring you anything newsworthy that comes out of it al-jazeera is alan fischer reporting live from washington alan many thanks indeed well on thursday the international atomic energy agency met to discuss the latest developments out of iran including the brief detention of an
7:15 pm
inspector from the u.n. nuclear watchdog al-jazeera store such a bari is in tehran. the international atomic energy agency has been holding a special meeting on their wrong on thursday in vienna to discuss the latest developments when it comes. down cements about its nuclear program the meeting that's also been discussing the treatment of one of the spectre's in iran that is because this inspector who is one of 150 inspectors that pass through the country's nuclear facilities on a regular basis she was briefly detained last week before entering the natanz nuclear facility for allegedly having suspicious material with her there when ian's briefly detained her and then she was sent out of the country this treatment is now drawing condemnation and the e.u. has issued a statement saying they're deeply concerned about the way this inspector was treated this all comes at a time when tensions are high about iran's nuclear ambitions this was something
7:16 pm
president hassan rouhani even predicted himself when he announced their wrongs 4th step in reducing its commitments to the nuclear agreement of 2015 he said that as of wednesday the 4 joe nuclear facility will restart its centrifuges and they did exactly that over a 1000 centrifuges are now spinning at that underground facility producing about 4.5 percent enriched uranium the iranians have said this is a serious step and they are very much trying to put pressure on the remaining european signatories that are left in the nuclear agreement since the united states withdrew from the deal iran has said that they will not stay in this deal by themselves they have not seen any of the benefits since the united states imposed a series of sanctions on iran's oil and banking sector for now there's a lot of condemnation about iran and its nuclear program and the iranians are adamant that they will continue to reduce their commitments until they see some tangible results from this nuclear deal and until then these measures will continue

a grenade attack the political rally at a political rally rather that killed 16 people and shortly after one sent seized power in a coup brains he then set up his own opposition party but left cambodia many times to avoid government charges against him in 2015 he was found guilty of criminal defamation the cambodian government banned his opposition party ahead of the 2018 election labor rangers deputy has been released by malaysian officials who. have been taken into custody a witness to after she also tried to travel to combo cumbria to other cambodian activists have been released as well but this is human rights commission says she would be allowed to stay in malaysia but no other details were provided through robinson is the deputy asia director of human rights watch he says the cambodian government should allow the leaders to return and to freely resume their political activities. i think it's highly unlikely that it's going to allow them into the
7:23 pm
country much less let them go from the airport to the border overland to. sort of organize migrant workers to march across the border we have seen actually on the cambodian border that there are posters everywhere with photos and the names of these cambodian exiles saying that they will be arrested if they are brought across we've heard information about consultations going on between the thais and the cambodians about the situation so our assessment right now is that it's probably highly unlikely that they're going to be able to get into thailand much less get to the border cambodia is trying to bully all its neighbors to keep c.n.r. p. exiles out or to arrest them and send them back we don't think that anybody's going to actually do cambodia dirty work to arrest people and actually deliver them to one fan but our view is that c.n. r.-p. fishel like all cambodians have the right to return to their country this is
7:24 pm
actually an international human rights that is guaranteed that the right to leave your country and also to return to it and under the international covenant on civil political rights that cambodians ratified they should allow brand c. and his compatriots to fly directly into phnom penh and if they're arrested at that time well that's the next step in the situation here but they should not be barred from being able to return to that country. security forces in iraq have shot and killed at least 2 protesters in baghdad the demonstrators were trying to remove barriers leading to bridges in the capital earlier the european union condemned the use of excessive force being used by iraqi security officials it said that the attacks on demonstrators undermine the right to peaceful assembly and the expression of legitimate demands. while the head of baghdad security forces says there's now a ban on the use of military grade tear gas grenades on demonstrators that's after
