11:16 am
and military expos. from up to 40 countries meeting there to discuss the next steps to fort rather ukraine, also at the ramps on their basis ounces here, assessed at boston at step. what's this meeting all about? yet? austin has called at the historical and it is indeed very unusual to have an international meeting at the u. s. largest air base with outside of the united states at def, definitely give assign assigned to europe, that it should step up its support. according to the u. s. to ukraine, as you say, more than 40 nations are invited. it's not only nato nations, all the defense ministry of ministers from a ne 2 are here. but also beyond that, there are countries in asia, countries in the middle east and from africa are invited. and what is also significant here is that it's at the ramstein air base in germany,
11:17 am
and germany has been criticized for not doing enough, not sandy weapons, not sending heavy weapons most particularly to ukraine. and it's interesting also to know that germany seems to have to make, have made this turn around just a hat of this very important meeting by saying that they're now gonna st. chapper to jeep are tanks to ukraine. it's different than ukraine had asked for initially. and until last week, until yesterday, even germany was saying they were not gonna sent these tanks to ukraine. they were worried that germany would be involved in the war with russia, which they definitely wanted to prevent. also, the german chancellor has warned for this 3rd world war, he was worried about a nuclear weapons being used. but now germany under pressure from the united states has confirmed that they are going to send these happy weapons as well, which is quite significant. but it will be also talks about longer term security
11:18 am
support for ukraine, not only immediate, but also for the long term. what is nato and all the, these countries this broad coalition for the defense of ukraine, going to do to help ukraine to have this security guarantees. that's all on the table. it asked me the defense, minnesota ukraine is here as awesome as sad, but also nato steve. yeah. stalled to burgers. here they will all speak later on and we will hear from them in a couple of hours. i'd stepped for the moment. many thanks. d don't. is there a step 1st that live at the ramstein base in germany? north korea's leader kim jong and says that his country will strengthen and develop its nuclear arsenal at maximum speed. speaking it operate in pyongyang, kim added that north korea could not limit its nuclear forces to just to terence. the horse on 17 was among the missiles on display. it said to be pyongyang biggest intercontinental ballistic missile. both korea says that it successfully launched the weapon in march. one of 13 tests so far this year. beijing is to introduce
11:19 am
mass testing for most of its 21000000 residents. as authority struggle to contain a surgeon corona virus cases, people have been panic buying at supermarkets, stalking up on food essential items. china's capital is rolled out strict measures under the countries 0 coven policy. now just here as katrina year reports now from aging. well making authority say they found cases in 8 new districts across aging, bringing herself of ac karone of ours cases identified here in the capital since friday. so what that means that the mandatory testing order has been extended to law district, basically will cover most of the people living in beijing and not include more than 20000000 people who will have to go from math testing. so far they've tested about 4000000 in this initial round, including myself and our team as well. and we're still waiting on our results from that initial test. now here's the thing we have to do just once this week,
11:20 am
not twice. we'll have to do the test 3 times before the weekend. i think that's a recognition that this is the highly infectious on the chrome strain and it's very difficult to catch at time. now, after all those test results, the after those 3 rounds of test results are discovered and correlated on the weekend. it we're expecting on sunday that authority will make a judgment call as to whether there'll be any lockdown or any further restrictions imposed in aging. but already people are extremely nervous, it's been very anxious here on the capital sunday, there's been panic, buying reaction to even masks, punches of twitter has divided social media. us republican politicians are welcoming the move. but some democrats say that it's dangerous for democracy to his board. unanimously approved the 44000000000 dollar deal to sell the company to 0 as gabriel, as on their reports now from new york. the deal is done the month long saga of who
11:21 am
will own twitter appears over in one of the largest and most unusual tech acquisitions ever. the board of directors and twitter unanimously agreed to sell the social media company to even musk for $44000000000.00. up until the deal was announced, there was doubt on wall street. that musk could cobble together the financing needed, but he did. must help pay for the deal with $25500000000.00 in debt financing by a group of banks lead by morgan stanley. in a press release announcing the deal must talked about improving the platform by getting rid of automated spam accounts and making its algorithms open to the public and authenticating all users. but for musk buying twitter is about free speech, or at least his version of it potentially ending twitters, current content, moderation, or stopping the platforming of users who break the rules you on mosque is not
11:22 am
buying twitter or financial reasons, although he thinks he can make some money on it, he's buying it for ideological reasons and i think that's the really important part and all this. and that's ultimately what's scary with musk in control. they fear a return to the unruly spread of disinformation on the platform. so as today, a good day or bad day for twitter users, that is probably the most important question here. and i think it's also the question that's going to be hardest to answer. i think that if he does a lot of the work that has been done trying to protect against sort of normative lee, bad speech such as this information and especially his speech that's going to be a bad day for twitter. but you know, there's a chance that he takes over and doesn't sort of have quite a sweeping of a reform agenda. as he said he's put forth in over the last couple its finish to
11:23 am
mulch you a month for twitter. this must take a 9 percent stake in the company, making him its largest shareholder. he was then offered a seat on the board of directors, only to have it up roughly revoked, followed by his cash offer to buy the entire company all within the last few weeks . ultimately, eli and musk got what he wanted to not only be a twitter user, but to also be its owner. gabriel is on dough. how just new york mosques acquisition of twitter brought a cautious response from the white house. i'm not going to comment on a specific transaction. what i can tell you as a general matter, no matter who owns or runs twitter, the president has long been concerned about the power of large social media platforms. what they have the power they have over everyday lives. as long argued, the tech platforms must be held accountable for the harms they cause he's been a strong supporter, a fundamental reformed to achieve that goal. i still don't have
11:24 am
a specific comments on this specific transaction. and at this point, we don't have any sense of what the policies will look like. turkey is customer tonight, the conviction of business, one activist, osman kabbalah is politically motivated. he's been sentenced to life in prison for attempting to overthrow the government. the united states called the decision, unjust, sent him concealed reports from assemble. well, i really calling for justice protesting against ensemble court's decision to jail. turkish business men, an activist of montgomery law for life. come on, us france cried and hugged as he was convicted of trying to overthrow the government by financing nationwide to government processed in 2013 other charges of espionage were thrown out. you could, if this is a lawful decision, we would be able to comment on it, but it's not. this is a summary of a k
