12:05 pm
the planners and the wealth of cultures with political, economic, and other cliches. the cliches don't work here. the cliches that bluntly, without any alternatives, are being imposed from one center goober is a good m a t with my years. the router is a notes in dw russia unless konstantin agger to his in the lithuanian capital vilnius. and i asked him whether putin's position on sanctions was another indication of his defiance. yes, absolutely. and i think about what the main might main take away from this speech very long speech, by the way, is that put in the really believes that economic sanctions imposed by the west on, on russia will not word because others will come to be in the house i think that she is convinced that a financial team is good enough to stave off financially. that's dorothy and b, that's going to be enough. investors,
12:06 pm
let's say from asia that will come and be allowed to rush the economy. and by the way, speaking about the speech from a, it was very interesting how he repeatedly used this kind of traditional left wing post colonial discourse from western academia to the audience where there were a lot of people from china, india, basically from asia and africa, trying to basically please them with this kind of anti western pitch. because of him, we'll, we'll speak in a moment. the international community has condemned russia's invasion of ukraine. time and time again. german chancellor, all i show said on friday that it's absolutely necessary for leaders to speak directly with the russian president to end the war. so let's take a listen. what chances are shells have to say it is absolutely necessary to speak, to put in and i will continue to do so as the french president for it also. and there are some countries needed and some leaders needed that speak to him. and
12:07 pm
it is necessary that they are clear because when i speak to put him, i say, for instance, the same things as said to you, please understand that they're moving, know, dictate piece. and if you really believe that you will rob some land and then hope that the times will change and all the things be will become normal. again, this is a mistake, right? so johnson shawls believes that dialogue is essential with president putin. but is there actually any indication that he's open to listening or compromising with the west constantine well, over nearly 4 months? no, there is no sign that fruits and actually shifted in his position. actually i think that he uses this phone call with the president kong and chancellor shots to tell the russian public, look,
12:08 pm
we are still respected. we're doing everything right. mike is right. but actually, i think in russia this, this particular message sounds quite powerful and dialogue is important. no doubt about that. the issue is the, the, basically what is the dialogue about and i think that this is something that so far has been missing from this, this discourse of the necessity of dialogue with them because it seems to you that just propaganda, public, russia, analysts, konstantin, anchored. thank you. to people have been killed in an attack on a seek temple, enough gun astounds capital capital. a taliban spokesman said attackers had attempted to drive a car laden with explosives into the temple area, but at detonated before reaching its target. there are also reports that gunmen stormed the temple and wounded those inside with a grenade. it's not yet clear who's behind the assault. alright, well,
12:09 pm
let's get more on this from ali let he feed a journalist in afghanistan, capital capital high, allie, good to see you. so what more can you tell us about this attack? the attack took place early in the morning and then the sounds from the explosion echoed throughout the city. it, you know, it was hard in areas several kilometers away from the attack site. so it shows that explosives were very, i a potent and very heavy. um and you know, this isn't the 1st time that the seek temple has come under attack about a year ago. it also came under attack by state forces. and again, what this attack and other previous attacks over the last few months have shown is that unfortunately, places of worship in avalon, san continued to remain under tack just yesterday we saw that a mosque in the northern promised list came under attack. we've seen
12:10 pm
a tax on soupy needing houses. we've seen a tax on how she had in places of worship. we see tax on sunni places of worship. ah. so it's really for the people a question of how can this long emerett finally deliver on a promise of peace and security in the country. you know, after having taken over 910 months ago, ali letizia campbell. thank you it, you rob. let's take a look at some other news from around the world. monsoon storms in northern bangladesh of killed at least 25 people and unleashed floods that left more than 2000000 stranded authority said the flooding worse and saturday morning after a temporary reprieve. the previous day, the army has been deployed for rescue and relief operations is really airstrikes. ha ha ha. mass military sites in the gaza strip following rocket far from the palestinian territory. israeli army said the palestinian militant group. hamas had

12:12 pm
they held jewelry in delhi. what was behind this outbreak of violence in very short people who've been aspiring to apply to the army feel betrayed by the system. so we have millions of youth and india who aspire to join the indian army. and what the new recruitment system does is it gives them contracts for only 4 years and 75 percent of the people after that will be a they will have to leave their jobs and only 25 percent will be retained. so for a lot of the young people who spend yours preparing to get into the army and in india we really have a system where it is, you know, students go to coaching centers and so on for years on end it could be 2 years to 7 years to simply crack into the system and right now to them, it feels like the dream that they build has been shadowed. now, why, what is it that the government is trying to achieve with these changes? it seems like the government seized us as an approach that's, you know,
12:13 pm
killing 2 birds with one stone. so one of the aims is to reduce the average age of the army right now. it's at $32.00 and they want to bring it down to $26.00 with this new recruitment system. and the other is that a, because india has a high employment unemployment rate right now. they believe this will be a way to simply, you know, bring in some workforce out. but critics feel that this is not quite the reason india's defense spending is largely being portioned into being salaries and bank pension funds. and so critics feel that this is an attempt by the government to give shot or contracts, which will allow them to hire more people are and met and manage the salaries are but also leave funds to ah, get new technologies for the military. tell us a little bit about the role that the army plays as an employer in india. so every year, on average, are the indian army employees about $50000.00 young people. and this in itself is
12:14 pm
not a large number, but it's a classic case of a, you know, a very few positions for vetting that many, many applicants who applied in millions. and this is a highly coveted job because it comes with a lot of security. so it comes with a solid pension fund at the end of a tenure of about 2 decades to 35 years. and these are all benefits that the news scheme takes away. because also the people who come in through the new ugly bud scheme are, will not be given a pension of the end. and in indian society, you know, army officials are held in high esteem. so it comes with benefits, like how easily you can get a loan from the bank to build a house. and so it feels for people like a lot of that security package has been snatched away. now jewelry in delhi, thank you for your insight. it was 80 years ago today. paul mccartney is celebrating a milestone birthday. the former beatle is showing no signs of slowing down. he's
