6:09 pm
a ballistic missile development and proliferation its support for terrorism and other malign activities or strategy is at its core an economic and diplomatic one again we do not seek armed conflict with iran but we are ready to defend u.s. forces and interests in the region straight to the nato headquarters in brussels and we thought d w correspondent tony schultz welcome terry how did nato respond to mr aspect you know the feel this is this issue wasn't even on nato agenda today but it ended up being the biggest thing we talked about in all the press conferences today and this is because everyone is so worried about the conflict in the gulf and what allies were calling a bilateral issue between the u.s. and iran is now becoming an international issue and the u.s. has said clearly that's what it wants it believes that more pressure will bring iran to the negotiating table so that said everyone was very relieved to hear
6:10 pm
secretary esper say as you heard there that the u.s. wants to rely on political pressure economic pressure and diplomatic pressure a secretary general yet still somebody explains. i think that one important message is thought is that the united states so clearly the house stated that they don't want a war they actually said very clearly that they're it if you talk with iran without preconditions and it was a message from our laws today that we support efforts to deescalate to avoid any miscalculations incidents accidents and especially that they spotted of out of control and create a really dangerous really dangerous situation for terry shoulders what sort of support is the u.s. is likely to be able to count on from its allies. that's very unclear at the moment the u.s. is definitely going to have to play the long game here and secretary esper knows
6:11 pm
that he says that officials will be coming back here in mid july to share more intelligence on iran to lay out the case you know that worked on the i.n.f. treaty the u.s. laid out its intelligence showed its proof it demonstrated many times over to nato allies that it believed russia was violating the i.n.f. treaty and in the end they all came around they're going to have to do that again on iran because it's such a complicated issue for the european union members who are also nato allies and are in support of the nuclear treaty the treaty that the united states has quit and is trying to derail and i was just speaking with a european diplomat who told me that inside the room when secretary esper said that they wanted more allied support they wanted more public statements against iran they may want air surveillance they may want naval escorts that there was quite a subdued response from the european allies so the united states is going to have to work very hard to prove to european allies that they should pull their support from the nuclear accord and give it over to the united states which is in favor of
6:12 pm
a broader agreement that would take into account the nuclear nuclear program of iran but also ballistic missiles also other provocative behavior in the region this is a very very complicated dance for both europe and the united states and we're just seeing the beginning of it now with secretary espers appeal here at nato and with. the u.s. . with iran not being on the table did they manage to discuss anything that actually was on the agenda. they did and i think iran came 1st but after that we talked a lot about the i.n.f. treaty you know on august 2nd the i.n.f. treaty is likely to be declared dead unless russia agrees to destroy this very expensive advanced missile program that violates the ranges of the i n f nobody really expects russia to do that phil but next week they're supposed to be another nato russia meeting where they say ok this is really the last last minute to moscow if you're going to save the treaty you need to do it now so that was the other big

cars to give them $0.05 a day. i'm fine it's all going up. but keeping up an adequate network of motorized scooters is a logistical challenge at night transporters have to collect the scooter fleet and redistribute them for the next morning micro mobility analyst alexander young says that's why it's no surprise that a 10 minute ride currently costs 2 years 50 as much as a subway ticket. and not all of the aga fud i lot of suppliers say that's even below the running costs because managing a fleet of electric scooters cost so much money tied into the it's by then adequately taught on the current generation doesn't have replaceable batteries. so you base. have to pick up every scooter every 2 days ticket to a warehouse to be charged and then bring it back into town and you start to look at that in my view that's not economically viable in the long run. but
6:19 pm
manufacturers are working on the battery problem and they're convinced that these electric vehicles can help turn the corner in the mobility revolution. the women's football world cup resumes tonight in france after well a day off the 1st quarter final season england take on norway and that's meryl from the don't do sport is here welcome max we'll look ahead to that in just a moment how is the total would be going on the pitch so far well it's been a really high quality among the top teams early on in the early stages of the tournament there was a bit of discrepancy between some of the teams i think inferences of thailand who lost to the u.s. a 13 nil but now as we've progressed into the quarter final stage real top quality sides that and it's been very entertaining $126.00 goals scored so far that's about 3 per match and on the flipside the goalkeepers have really impressed as well and that's quite important because ahead of the tournament and during it as well
6:20 pm
there's been discussion about maybe using smaller goals in women's football in comparison to the men's goals or the goals that they're using now but the goalkeepers have really shown up at this tournament i'm thinking of 2 in particular netherlands sati von fein and dahl and sweden's hedvig lindahl who both pretty much saved that team's fortunes in the round of 16 and took them into the quarter finals was stunning saves so overall really good football that we've been seeing competitive football and lots more to come ok and off the pitch the fans turning up well there's plenty to cheer about there's been a bit of an issue there and in some cases some games have been very well attended others very poorly for instance the city of nice has stood out in a negative way only half the tickets were sold in the most recent match there that was a round of 16 match between norway and australia on a saturday very curious that they were able to attract more people in advertising has been blamed have been deemed a bit feeble in the way that they've been promoting the tournament especially
6:21 pm
within france and ahead of the tournament they for instance came out and said such a high volume of tickets have been sold that they they may have put off people who thought ok there's no more taking. left in some cases that even been stadia where you couldn't buy tickets on the actual day of the match so a bit of a mix up but overall the fans have really been enjoying it and coming out in force particular of course french fans but also supporters of the united states and the netherlands who always dazzle in their orange outfits we can see quite a few fans here lining up in the stadiums so plenty to cheer about as i say but still from an organizational point of view this things that can be improved the positive though is this is on track to be the most attended women's world cup ever beating the previous 2 women and canada had an overall figure of 1300000 people attending we've already had over a 1000000 ticket sales for this tournament according to fifa ok so let's talk about tonight then they kick of the quarter finals what do we have to look forward to
6:22 pm
over the next 3 days yet we're down to the last 8 and some real quality match up so we can take a look at the match ups in a moment just now norway are playing today against england that's the very 1st of the quarterfinal matches and here we see them coming up france the hosts face united states and what many thought could have been the final it's really netherlands and germany and sweden they face off on saturday so really really tasty match ups there specially looking out for italy and sweden who weren't necessarily thought to be in the tournament still at this point and tonight then hala yes. and norway both very exhausted teams who are going to be facing off with each other in considerable heat as well and norway on the one hand had a extra time and penalties game went to texas and then penalties in the round of 16 against australia so they had lots of work to do in england played cameroon in a bit of
6:23 pm
a dramatic match where 2 players were brutally tackled and injured and one player was spat fire cameron imply a plane see discussion after the match there but moving on. was this match both teams a little bit worse for wear england especially whose captain steph out in the still out with an ankle injury from that match and her defensive partner really bright dealing with the virus so england could go into this match quite weakened whereas no way on carrying any injuries as far as we know so even though england are the favorites norway could quite potentially cause an upset because they're as i say full strength and watch out for carolyn hansen who pulls the strings from midfield then number 10 that's a name to country with and to russia can only in the hands of mats medal useful thank you. france has issued its 1st ever read alert for dangerous weather amid the record breaking heat wave sweeping europe parts of france and spain are sweltering in temperatures of
