6:14 pm
the bloc would in fact be willing to discuss any concrete proposals on waiving pater's so not ruling it out entirely but the thrust of the argument really that's winning the day there in the european union is that it needs to be speeding up exports and helping poor relations to actually produce locally and so they've been giving some examples of where they've been looking into cooperation for example those who have on their law and the head of the european commission saying that the e.u. is now working closely with african nations to try to boost capacity locally and then they the indian prime minister narendra modi is joined in virtually how significant was that meeting. i think it was seen as a very big signal firstly of course because india is the country greatest crisis if you like from the covered 19 pandemic right now and e.u.
