12:12 pm
latest on this story hi thomas so that was the head of the conservative city you party there are calling for a tougher lockdown here in germany how likely is it that he will get his way. lushes comments were met by criticism by other german federal states who believe that his comments for example were too imprecise or that he was adding to a general sense of confusion here in germany because of those patchwork measures that you mentioned swim in your introduction by presenting that idea of a breach lock down when already there are various terms here in germany to describe those different phases of lockdown which many has faced in the last few months so there's no such entity that germany will go to a tough lock down in the next few days but there are certainly calls not only by mr lasher but by others as well to try and make sure that germany adopts measures to try and curb the coronavirus pandemic in particular that very difficult 3rd wave of the coronavirus pandemic german chancellor angela merkel has also been reportedly
12:13 pm
in favor of stricter measures to deal with the pandemic in particular a unified measures because as you alter as you have mentioned yourself some of the measures have been adopted specifically by different states which has created as i said a lot of confusion among the german population the question is who will go along with it so how did germans feel about the idea of a tougher and longer lock down. well actually sumi there was a poll earlier this month which revealed that a majority of germans were in favor of stricter measures so from that perspective german officials will certainly be pleased if they do go that way that many people in germany are actually supporting that idea by doctors not mean that germans in general are actually in favor of the way the government has been handling the coronavirus pandemic in fact there's growing skepticism there's a growing confusion a majority of people saying that they don't know they've lost track of what measures are in place where and when and also a lot of criticism towards the way and that confusion among german federal and

the world's most powerful countries are meeting in austria capital vienna today for talks to try and salvage the iran nuclear deal u.s. president joe biden said ministration wants to revive the accord after negotiations iran is refusing direct talks calling for sanctions to be lifted 1st european nations will mediate between the 2 sides a 2015 agreement to limit iran's nuclear program collapsed after dead president donald trump withdrew and reinstated sanctions on the country u.s. and iranian officials laid out there and ahead of today's talks our overarching goal is to ensure that iran's nuclear program is permanently and verifiably constrained and that on a permanent and verifiable basis iran will not be able to obtain a nuclear weapon. does who to call it whether the joint commissions agenda produces a result or not depends on the europeans and reminding the us of its obligations
12:17 pm
and the americans acting on their commitments will go to. let's bring in correspondent teri schultz who's following the story from brussels hi terry it's good to see you we've heard this being referred to as indirect talks so can you tell us what that means and what is actually going to happen today hi sue me we're not exactly sure of all the logistics yet but as we understand it the talks this afternoon will take place in 2 different locations because iran refuses to meet face to face with the united states and what the goal is to come up with basically 2 to do list one for iran one for the u.s. one to bring iran back into compliance with the deal to reverse the nuclear activities that has that it has undertaken over the last year and for the u.s. to rejoin the deal now those things will not take place with the 2 parties face to face but the but the 3 the france britain and germany and china and russia will go between the 2 sides and hopefully at the end of this session of talks they may have
12:18 pm
you know an agreement to move forward and have another round ok is there a realistic prospect that both sides could simply sign up to the original treaty again well technically iran didn't quit the deal it just quit abiding by it and that's of real concern because of course the deal itself was to stop iran from getting a nuclear weapon and the fears are that it has moved quite quickly in the direction of possibly getting one but the u.s. has not agreeing to president trump's assessment that this was the worst deal ever does have some issues with it and as you heard state department spokesman ed pricey there they would like this deal to be permanent to put permanent restrictions on iran and the original agreement didn't do that so the u.s. has some issues with the original agreement at the same time everyone agrees that getting both sides back into compliance with this deal would be a really important 1st step we're not exactly sure what we'll see in the talks today but terry what do you think success could look like at the end of today.
12:19 pm
nobody has very high hopes for any substantive breakthroughs at the same time everyone's very optimistic about even having iran and the u.s. in the same city and both iran and the u.s. have called this a good step forward iran says it's neither optimistic or pessimistic about the outcome and the u.s. called it a healthy step so i think that given given the rhetoric that we've seen between these 2 parties over the last couple of years over the last 4 years of the trumpet ministration i think everyone agrees this is moving in the right direction. terry szell's reporting there in brussels thank you so much now russia is vestey a newspaper is reporting that jailed opposition politician election involved he has been moved to a sick ward the kremlin critic was jailed in february and has been on a hunger strike since last wednesday to protest the lack of medical care with

united russia party you gave our national riches away to oligarchs. and now bundling is facing what he says is a political campaign against him local politicians have accused him of corruption for monetizing his social media accounts he could face a criminal case that could prevent him from running in the upcoming dumas elections . the government is afraid of people uniting uniting around the concrete political program which provides an alternative to the course they have taken. throughout my whole career during the many hours of live streams online or in my videos i never asked people to follow nicholai blundering co. i'm just asking people to be political if you don't like what i say follow your own line. the main thing is to not give up. in russia there are traces of the soviet past everywhere including in south of the communist party is still popular here and
12:22 pm
across the country even though critics say the party ultimately follows the kremlin line but even russia's so-called systemic opposition parties have recently become an outlet for people's anger at the government. last year the arrest of a popular governor from the right wing liberal democratic party led to weeks of protests in russia's far eastern city of god. every monday. has his office hours the 35 year old spends most of the day with constituents people stand in line for support with issues from benefit applications to problems with corruption. i've placed my hopes and think oh i heard how he talks to people and i've heard his speeches. in russia they don't like people who tell the truth it's always been that way so if he's trying to get the truth out to people naturally he becomes undesirable to the government if you can see how he acts at
12:23 pm
all as parliamentary session c.i.'s uncomfortable questions the authorities don't like that but. experts agree that the kremlin might try to keep people like john that anchor out of federal politics. ahead of the duma elections the kremlin makes clear arrangements with the main opposition parties about which candidates can run and what results they should get they don't want to let anyone in who will rock the boat. but despite attempts to intimidate him isn't ready to give up. people today are hungry for justice and for truth they don't trust the authorities on the whole. i went into politics to prove to citizens that lawmakers can work honestly. that ankara is already preparing his campaign for the duma elections and he hopes he will be allowed a fair fight. more headlines are making the news now jordan's state news agency says that the country's public prosecutor has banned

12:26 pm
himself yeah it's a fantastic strike and everybody knows it so a blank guy who will realise that with a striker. that's why some say the price could be as high as 150000000 euros and maybe that's why pick guardiola was not just papering price on holland but trying to gently persuade the club's inheriting ownership to spend like they've never spent before so far the club have decided not to spend. not close 100000000 or more than 100000000 for a play maybe in the future is going to happen when the club decide it's necessary for improve the team the club the team for the next 510 years for many reasons. 2 months left to run on the current season pair and every of a suitor will have to white but now it seems not so much if he will leave brasier dortmund but rather from where exactly he will real knowledge.
