a coven. 19 north korea says 27. people have died from what it calls a fever outbreak. ah, i'm really mohammed walking to the program for a ministers from the group of 7 countries say they will reject russia's attempts to change international borders by force. she said, ministers address rushes, invasion of ukraine at their meeting in northern germany. germany is foreign minister, and alina burbock, also called for an end to russia's blockade of ukraine's ports. accusing moscow of waging a food war on the world by causing millions of tons of grain to go to waste. the g 7 bowed to increase pressure on russia through sanctions, and called on china to not undermine international efforts to isolate moscow. germany's foreign minister said the g 7 would support ukraine financially and militarily,
5:02 pm
as long as necessary lesson. we support every measure and every step they are taking to ensure that people in ukraine and this is also our common goal. as g 7 can live as everybody else in europe again in peace, but also insecurity and freedom in their own country. and we will support ukraine on this pause with whatever it take to ensure that they have freedom and peace in their own country. i spoke to the deputies chief international editor, richard walker at the g 7 meeting, and he has more on the support to being promised for ukraine. see what the, i think what they've been talking about here at the g 7 foreign ministers is the kind of support the g 7 countries have been providing over the last 2 or 3 months of the war. and obviously a lot of financial support has been humanitarian support and increasingly, over the last couple of months in
5:03 pm
a recent weeks has been increasing military support. right up to kind of heavy weapons that we've seen western countries providing. and right here at the g 7 foreign ministers meeting, the used foreign policy chief announced another 500000000 euros of european union money for heavy reference to go to ukraine. so there's that on the one hand, but also they're talking about trying to provide ukraine with support or with the issue of grain which you just mentioned in the, in the lead up just there. the fact that there are 25000000 tons estimated to be stuck in ukrainian harbor harbors can't get out on to the high seas because russia is blocked blockading those ports. and alina bareback had a pretty strong message on that, so we can take a listen to a clip. millions of tons of grain are blocked by russia in ukraine's ports in a historic moment of this kind. we as g 7 must ask ourselves the question of
5:04 pm
whether in this year 2022 we had done enough in order to mitigate the impact and crisis of this war together was actually, this is not our war. this is not a war waged by the international community. this is a war waged by the russian president. but we share a global responsibility and looking forward, they will be talks around sweden and finland, possibly joining nato. what's the latest on that? yeah, that's right, so. so the kind of diplomatic action here in germany is moving down to berlin now, where the countries that are members of nature will be gathering for, for a meeting of the next couple of days in finland and sweden. they will be present at that meeting too, because those 2 countries now want to join nato as a response to russia's invasion of ukraine to boost their own security. but just at
5:05 pm
the last minute wretched type ad one, the turkish president. on friday, i said that he was skeptical about these 2 countries joining nato that he objected to them as a supposedly harboring terrorists. so i put a question to angelina about the, the german foreign minister just earlier given that germany has strongly supported the accession of these 2 countries to nato. what she made of ad one's comments. so we can take a listen to that clip to in no uncertain terms. it wasn't nato that convinced finland and sweden or pushed finn and sweden to join nato. it was entirely down to the behavior and actions of the russian president because he has basically forced them into this alliance because they wanted to live peacefully with their neighbors. and i very much hope that their accession is approved. so clearly showing signals of hope and optimism for these accession talks to be
5:06 pm
approved. how likely is that to happen? will to be clear. i mean, turkey does have the ability as a nato ally or to stop another joy country joining nato rules do say that a unanimous agreement by all of the allies is needed for a new alloy to, to join nato. but what is not clear yet, and this is really very fresh, these comments relative to add. one is just how serious he is. if he really does want to go to the point of completely blocking a sweden and finland from joining nato. or if he's, he's known as a leader who's kind of transactional in his diplomacy. if he wants something, if he's out to get some kind of concessions of certainly there you can expect this weekend of diplomacy as it moves down to berlin to be quite frantic in trying to work out. what are the turks playing at here? or is there something that they want, or is this a very,
5:07 pm
very serious objection to these 2 countries joining nato, burton, who, however, this turns out, you can certainly imagine that vladimir putin will be happy to be seeing this. certainly the expansion of nato is a huge setback for him. somebody who extensively wants to prevent nato from expanding at all. he will certainly be quite pleased, i think, to see this careful over ad one's comment. right d w as chief international editor should walker. thank you so much. but as mentioned after the g 7 meeting, nato foreign ministers will gather in berlin for an informal meeting on russia's invasion of ukraine. there will be joined by the foreign ministers of sweden and finland to discuss the 2 countries seeking nato membership. it comes as concerns grow over the threat from russia, marking a departure from their former stance on the military alliance. becoming a full member of nato used to be aligned finland and sweden did not intend to cross in brussels. that line is actually
5:08 pm
a street with partner countries on one side and nato allies on the other. we meet finland's nato ambassador close caught on in, at the building where his mission is located for now after the russian aggression against ukraine. so our security environment in, in europe and also in northern europe, europe, it has changed. ah, it's no more insecure. a no, i think this, this move or to increase our corporation and become member of, oh, nato is the right step. the alliance has always made clear to finland and sweden. there's a place for them here, room for more flags and some offices that could use new tenants. but as some of the most wealthy well equipped countries in europe, these new nordic members would feel much more important gaps than those sweden, england bring difference. assets to nato. finland famously brings the ability to guard of barren lat long land border with russia. we even brings

a 500 year old navy and a navy that is among the largest in the baltic sea where we should remember. nathan doesn't have very many large mabis. accepting the 2 country should be a no brainer for nato says, former finish prime minister alexander stoop. them ordinates compatible the most natal member states themselves. so take fiddlers example we're, we're spent about 2 percent of our g, d, p on military ah, expenditure. we have reserves with 900000. we can mobilize 280000 quickly during a war time. we have 62 f eighteens just bought 64 f 35 and indeed nato secretary general un stilton burn. has said this would be a record fast accession process. once the 2 governments formerly confirmed they wanted join, though it will still take months. 30 nieto governments stamps of approval even ahead of their formal applications. finland and sweden or receiving pledges from
5:10 pm
allies and defensive back up against possible russian retaliation. and they'll be providing security as well. i think finland is already her protecting the northern flank of the alliance and her with nato membership that will be even more effective . maybe we have more visibility and and on more information, more experience on oh, what, what is going on and what might happen? so i think yes, i think that perspective will be welcome. mutual security is already a 2 way street, but bound to be easier when all the nordic countries and nato are on the same side of it. you crazy military says russian forces have pulled back from territory around the 2nd largest city. harkey gave it, says russia is trying to god it's supply roads and focus the tax on regions further east present, fuzzy b as the lens. he says, more than one that 1000 settlements have now been de occupied, but he want of a long war ahead. these were left behind in
