4:03 pm
a lot happening. you might say a lot of moving parts, a yen stoughton burger, the secretary general of nato has announced that he is reinforcing deployments in the eastern countries. so we're talking about countries that are part of the nato alliance in the east. and for example, opponents and what that means is the nato be looking to boost on the ground more troops, but also send or shapes and fighter jets. now thought berg says this is all part of a responding to the deteriorating a security situation, or he calls it as a western powers. look at rushes, actions on ukraine's border, and fear a possible invasion at the same time. or we have diplomats in brussels, you foreign ministers, are there gather talking about the ukraine crisis. and what they are expected to do at the end of their meeting is announced that if russia would invade ukraine, that they will,
4:04 pm
of course issue or they will are expected to she start warning about that. but also that they would then put in place and impose on the kremlin a very severe package of sanctions. now that's what we're expecting at the end of our meeting, but what we've heard or already from the e u, a commissioner or so, of course in brussels, is that are the e you is offering a 1200000000 emergency financial package to ukraine. that was announced by miss lavonne de leon, and she is saying that is to try and help ukraine in this current situation. so a lot of moving parts a lot happening in brussels. natasha, thanks very much. let's take it to moscow and i corresponded their daughter, jibari daughter events moving quite quickly now picking up tempo. i guess with this announcement from nature to day was the russian reaction, like well, the kremlin, as you can imagine, peter is not very happy. they're saying that to the actually, the actions of nato are increasing tensions, and they believe that key of building up their troops alongside the border in the
4:05 pm
eastern part of ukraine with russia is going to, could be causing a lot of concern for this country. the kremlin is also saying at the risk of kiev, starting a military conflict in eastern ukraine is higher than ever before. and that the attentions are soaring off the back of the actions of nato and the united states. and that their information is creating hysteria. this is the word we've heard over and over again by the russian government being used to describe the situation that is now a created in terms of how the western and nato countries are seeing the situation alongside the borders of russia and ukraine. the russians are saying that the western information is quote laced with lies and that this is all part of an attempt to try and a false flag. it's sort of false flag operation alongside that border. and that's the tensions are on the rise because the ukraine is building up their troops near
4:06 pm
the contact line between russia and ukraine in the eastern part of the ukraine. this is something that we've heard over and over again. there is still, of course, a lot of concern here, and the russians for their part are not standing by watching events on fold in brussels. they've said that they will continue to move their military hardware and troops to their borders wherever they see fit. and they're also going to have military drills with bell routes in the north, and that is going to take place in february. they've also said that any kind of talk of sanctions on the kremlin is going to be a non starter for them that they're not going to be affected by sanctions. they've withstood them before in the past and they will again in the future. also thank you so much. we'll talk to later. i'm sure. in the meantime. thank you. let's bring in courtney. he's the adjunct senior fellow at the rand corporation, formerly a us diplomat. he joins us from washington. william courtney, welcome back to the news. let's just go through the specifics here. the u. s. the u
4:07 pm
. k. and australia, old downsizing, the number of staff that they have in the embassy in kiev. how significant is that? that is significant, primarily because u. s. government, british, australia, government, their primary responsibility is to protect their own citizens. so they are doing this out of an abundance of caution. this is not signal confidence missing or lacking, and then your credit and government. now let's talk about a report to the new york times, the us president joe biden, apparently, according to the n y t. and also talking about this on the twitter feed. thinking about deploying an extra $5000.00 troops on top of nato forces, already stationed in europe to increase and i could tenfold the staffing levels that they have in the baltic states and eastern europe. break that down for us and the baltic states, nato forces are quite small in the low hundreds. so increasing tenfold is not
4:08 pm
a whole lot. there are more in poland and elsewhere for nato to move forces within europe. the special us forces around is a very helpful step in the sense of showing russia that nato a 2nd seriously. what would be more important would be if the united states would start moving us soldiers and equipment from the united states to europe, embracing or perhaps in eastern europe, an armored brigade, for example. britain's deputy prime minister dominic rob, formerly foreign secretary. again, today, talking about this idea that moscow might have planned some place in the shadows, if you will, to install some sort of puppet administration in kia for that's, that's impossible to pull off unless it follows a ground invasion. well that's most likely to follow the ground evasion.
4:09 pm
a particular concern about his with motion forces increasingly present in bella roost. those forces could try sometimes it's called a thunder run down on both sides of the didn't a pro river to encircle camp campus. not that far from dollars that could happen fairly quickly. within a matter of days circumstance, i kept. busy then of course, russians probably would tried to install one of their loyal us as the leader of the country. do these 3 main pinch points in your mind, old to the optics of the conversation, that the us secretary of state, anthony blink, and he's going to be having with his european colleagues today. what we're seeing is steady build up of russian forces around your cranes. certainly south and east, but now we're bell or is that a new concern if the russians were interested in trying to negotiate
4:10 pm
something or find some accommodation, they haven't said or done anything publicly to indicate that. in contrast to past negotiations, the russians know how to do serious negotiations with this ard on strategic arms. iran nuclear agreement. this is not the way that brushes approaching this. so i think what is happening now. search blank and comments in the what's the allies today are going to be continuation of the kinds of things that you asked me. i've been talking about for weeks now. william courtney. good to talk to you so thank you so much. we and courtney, they're talking to us from washington d. c. the u. a has launched air strikes in yemen after intercepting ballistic missiles fired by who's the rebels. it's the 2nd recent attack targeting abu dhabi last week 3 people were killed in a hoof. the drone strike and who the spokesman is wanting of further attacks on the you a, on a go are tell him
4:11 pm
a lot in response to the belligerent escalation by saudi arabia and the u. s. e. and there are crimes against or blocked people. the missiles and drone units of our armed forces carried out to successful large military operations. shopping at our armed forces, stress, its full preparedness, to widen the scope of its operation and the coming period of time and to meet escalations with further escalations, our armed forces renewed warning to the foreign companies. investors within the u. s. e to leave as the u. e is declared an unsafe country and the target of our future operations, so long as it's belligerents and siege against him and is not halted less bring in that tool beyond sold vet, sees of principle analyst for the middle east and north africa at the political risk consultancy verisk, maple croft. he joins us from the scottish capital, edinburgh, so that is this a change of tactic? well, i think we're, we'll have to wait and see. i think it's certainly what we're witnesses. it's probably
4:12 pm
a pretty significant change in the and the threat landscape. and we've seen the hutus mccarthy's toaster traction on the, on a regular basis on saturday. i'm that with a mixture odds, christmas aisles, ballistic missiles than and john attacks. and then with the recent threats that were made against your year when article of seeing that on the ground in the year a year with the attacks last week. and this week with the u. e. as a default setting, if you will, want to moderate its response. i'm assuming here the you a wouldn't want to get sucked in to a conflict just across the border. even if we get to the stage, say a month down the road or 6 months down the road where the economic impact to the tourism to the hub aviation industry and even to the oil and gas industry is significant. yeah, it's, it's, it's a difficult dilemma facing the mirror you saw it is now increasingly under threats from that he sees that at the same time we've seen over the last 4 or 5 years.
4:13 pm
that's, you know, we've had a pretty extensive military campaign in yemen. and rather than reduce the missile threat to the jesus, he states over things that is an increase in that threat. so for the murat is, you know, if, if, if the good on the roof of trying to target the, the huge is more aggressively in yemen. that, of course risk still contentions further and sort of triggering a downward spiral. but equally, if they kind of sit back and just try and defend passively against this threat, that's also something that's very difficult to do with the text this morning. the out of fences worked as they should in terms of targeting the ballistic missiles. punch, we've seen with different types of attacks, whether it's sort of swarms of drones or, or christmas styles or different types of missiles working together. it's very difficult to defend against these types of weapons once during the air, for the immorality it, sorry is that means that in terms of finding
4:14 pm
a solution is going to have to be something that goes beyond just a sort of purely defensive military posture. it will have to involve no diplomacy efforts to increase the resilience of, of critical civilian and an energy infrastructure in the country. so it is a really complex task facing the authorities in terms of meeting this, this threat very briefly, mr. so that is the other big variable here, the talks going on in vienna between iran and the united states, because whatever happens there will possibly correct me if i'm wrong here, be played out in the, in the skies over yemen, and on the ground in yemen because there's so many heart wide proxy conflicts going on, and that's what's been going on there for years now. yes, absolutely. and i think if you, if you look at one dynamic that's going to be the most important one over the next weeks and months. you know, you have to say is going to be the trajectory of talks between united states and iran. very difficult to, to imagine
4:15 pm
a sort of significant easing of tensions in the region. while that situation remains unresolved. and we've seen effort for almost a year now to try and bring the us back into the nuclear agreement. but if, if we see talks dragging on as they have for some time, i would very much expects expect talks to continue and then know the course for it will then depend on what happens there. if we see a resolution, then we can expect that material reduction and the threat landscape for the. but conversely, if things go south and if toast collapse, then of course there is a risk of the, of the threat getting even worse. and the u. v. and the saudis, and other countries in region facing and even more volatile regional environment than they do already want to watch for sure. and so that thank you so much. not more still to come here on the news for you. the former catholic pope acknowledges seek a false testimony with child sex abuse enquiry plus yeah.
4:16 pm
he is over a deepening political crisis in honduras. the sections of the governing parties swear in rifle precedence of the congress and in sport celebrations, fortune as you, as they pull off a big shock to eliminate curia at the africa cup of nations will show you how they did it coming up. ok. okay, let's thank you super keena fast. so this is an attempt to, to, we think on the way their reports from the capital one to go say the president has been detained at a military base soldiers having taken control of the main tv station and follows the day of unrest yesterday. and overnight gunfire last night, near the president's palace, henry wilkins joyce is on the phone now from the capital. henry since the last time we were talking on 10 g news,
4:17 pm
just get us up to speed with what the situation is right now. yeah, it's pretty just a waiting game at the moment as we know already know, the military play can over the phone call. we were expecting to to come on the national television around 1 pm gmc today that's fine. is that still no announcements for the leaders of the 2, which is where we are expecting the equally to have any kind of feature for the public from the, from the existing government was the speculation. henry asked the whereabouts of the president, indeed, should we still be calling him president? at this stage, we believe that he's our military council council, amazon, which is one of the needs. and he started yesterday a law to is the largest military camp. and we kept so like
4:18 pm
a dd. he's alleged to be fine. hearing some conflicting reports which are very much on this stage. he made the law, not a vehicle which belongs to venture was found in the vicinity of the presidential palace this morning. but holding the windows on the, on the passenger seat as well as i said, we cannot no president himself with travelling in my talk or speech reports at the factory. okay, let's call this a key for the next 60 seconds or so. the people who staged it, how confident are they that they've got control of the country? do you think that they can keep control of the country?
4:19 pm
i think the they seem to be pretty comfortable that they have control at the moment, funding outside the been our support call the moment we can see the troops. yes. that i need them regarding the faces covered and so on today. quite confident things around the street says the key to fax. i like the the, the, the day that i will still come coming from military bases. it's, it's all just fod shots and tom is not inside today it's, it's much quiet. it's definitely a sense for the, the military. now the ones in control. okay, and how many thanks that will talk to you later. i'm sure henry wilkins talking to the from what to do to well, i'll be special as a research fellow at the university of portsmouth in the u. k. she explained to me earlier, what's behind this latest escalation in the events in booking of fossil? the mute is not a surprise, and the account is that it has become,
4:20 pm
is not as far as either that has been happening to me due to the lack of resources or appointments that have been given in pricing, being fortunately the talking enough time. i don't have soldiers killed really resonated among the nation and among the folders. and originally the meeting was about that about with the soldiers to be treated better, given proper equipment. it seems that negotiations are broken down and that, that it has become and it isn't clear what's gonna happen next and effectively. how can we help the security situation? we have to remember that the last time it happened in 2016 and there was huge resistance to, to that. could that estimate that that fails? the situation is very different. now people are very angry of the government for
4:21 pm
not responding well, the run enough to the situation. so you, you do have another population, people who are desperate for some big measures in recent months and weeks. they have been rumors of times that have been in children's work, the arrested me the very top communication from governments on the country. the government has shut down internet several times. and so this is creating a lot of grievances that then tends to support the military to some degree. once again, it's very difficult to understand who the players are and what all the lines within the army or between the all taiwan says china flu, 39 warplanes near its air space. and what's being described is the largest operation of its kind for 3 months. the taiwan air force is you'd radio warnings and back to be their defense missile systems. there's been no immediate comment from china, which considers the island a breakaway province. katrina,
4:22 pm
you has more for us from beijing. this was the largest incursion by china's military close to taiwan. this year, the sunday exercise involves $39.00 chinese warplanes, which flew close to the ty when he's controlled, protest islands. now, china's foreign ministry would not elaborate on the reasons behind this exercise, but it follows just one day after a huge show of military force by the u. s. and japan in the philippines. see now this exercise, this joint military exercise included to us aircraft carriers. and the u. s. navy said that this exercise was designed to preserve a free and open indoor pacific. now china considers taiwan a rogue chinese province that will inevitably be reunited with the mainland, and beijing has not ruled out using force in order to achieve this. in recent months, it's increased the number of military exercises taking place close to taiwan and
4:23 pm
the highest number of incursions in the court. it took place in october, which included $56.00 chinese warplanes, which flew close to taiwan on the same day. now, begging does the denies that these exercises are designed to intimidate the ty when he's government. but analysts say that that's exactly what they're meant to do. let's bring in roles, find gold. he's an asia political risk analyst. he joins us from. ty pay ross good to talk to again, is this beginning to feel like something of a trend now on the part of the chinese? it's certainly been to try not just for the last few months, it's actually from the time that time, one was 1st elected in 2016 and she was re elected in 2020 and trying to show this to this fighter with the policies of the government by putting pressure on time on whether that's through air, military exercises, military exercises, economic pressure, or tried to restrict turbines participation in international organizations that we
4:24 pm
have to keep in mind that the policies of this government are, you know what the voters wanted when they elected this government twice will do this pattern of behavior continue or will they go beyond where they've gone before consistently. what we're seeing is, is incremental increases. so starting from say, september, october, last year we seen this tremendous increase in the number of aircraft that are flying to taiwan. here, defense identification, people over interpret this, this was the time, this is the biggest faction, or it's the most aircraft, or the 2nd book aircraft watch 6 months. maybe that's not really good things that people should focus on. they should focus on the types of aircraft. will there be additional or different kinds of military exercises or trying to undertake in the coming months? and are they really changing the dynamic?
4:25 pm
because taiwan can respond, we taiwan, dispatchers, its own aircraft to warn away the chinese aircraft. but at one point those china use whether it's frequency or different types of aircraft jamming. the firewall graph you have to watch carefully for signals that when china is doing is really changing the dynamics significantly. taiwanese, people don't seem particularly bothered about this, but that doesn't mean to say, surely it doesn't, that they shouldn't be taking china seriously. absolutely show here in taipei, of course politicians are discussing this issue. commentators on team here discussing this military leadership, ministry of national defense making statement about it. but the people in high paying the rest apply. why don't stop what they're doing to pay attention to this news, whether it's because they're used to it or because they don't think china is sure it's going to take military action, will only know over time. but for those who are concerned about security,
4:26 pm
we certainly call on taiwan to invest what's necessary in its own defense. and to take this threat very, very seriously, not just go about your daily business and not think about the implications of an increase number of aircraft. any are graph that are threatening your country, flying around. obviously, when these people should take this more seriously. russ feingold, thank you very much. when you waking sunday julian songs can challenge you k court decision to exploit him to the united states. the judge is abroad. he can appeal to the supreme court. to us wants to try us on, on 18 charges, including espionage, is all related to the publications of classified military documents about the wars and canister on. and also in iraq. the philippines is still recovering after super typhoon rice dropped last month. and now there's more flooding in the forecast just as the details in your world, whether update. hello there, thank you for joining in your world's weather report. begins in the philippines and

4:31 pm
saddam. this is embarrassing for the roman catholic church in germany and also the vatican. i guess the central fact that emerges from pages and pages and pages of evidence given by the former pope just less than 6 weeks ago to this inquiry is he says repeatedly that if he can't remember a meeting take taking place and it didn't take place. well, to day through a spokesman, he has said actually what he did was mislead the inquiry, not through bad faith, but by bad editing of this particular document. but what essentially happened here is the inquiry was investigating historical accusations of clerical sex abuse of children in the late 19 seventies in 19 eighties. it had a remit for the last 75 years, but specifically that period late seventies,
4:32 pm
early eighties. and specifically in the archbishop rick of munich advising, that's where the former pope was archbishop. and he has now admitted that on one particular occasion, he was present when the case of a specific priest who would go on to be convicted of child sex abuse. he was present at the time and the allegation is that he did not do enough to act against this specific priest. now the former pope has said in his, in the, in the in regional evidence. he said, well, if i didn't remember it, i wasn't there because i wasn't there. i couldn't have known what happened while now these specific investigators have said you were there. it follows therefore, that it is likely that you knew what happened. he says it was not bad faith, it was bad at a thing and that he will explain further at a later date. but no question. this raises very many serious questions both for him and for the catholic church dominant. thank you very much,

4:37 pm
nurses will be required in the next 10 years. let's bring in mana abby, abdullah, doom it's. she's associate professor of nursing and celebrities american university . she joins us from beirut, manor abbey, abdullah, do mit. when you teach nurses, how to nurse what kind of stress levels are you getting them ready to encounter on a daily basis? now? of course, when no student nurses are going nursing, we expose them gradually to the different stressors that they would be facing up on graduation. and we try to paper down 40 entity shock, but no matter how we prefer students. still, reality shock is, is very big, especially when you are working under, if and that make along with an economic crash and come see that is completely crashing like lebanon. and when you talk about the country crashing like lebanon,
4:38 pm
is a slightly weird. forgive me $0.06 in which it would be easier for your nurses, your new nurses, if it was just coded. but if it's covered, plus all the other medical situations that people have in a country where the economy has been flat lining for so long. that makes it doubly difficult, and therefore, more understandable, perhaps the newly qualified nurses lebanon, want to leave lebanon. very true. very true. i always said that the, when i was president of the order of nurses, it was, it was on the coven. lebanon has a very good health care system, very strong healthcare system. we have very good act is not excellent nurses. it would have, it would have been like an easy thing to deal with carbon as long as nurses are
4:39 pm
concerned, because every day we're dealing with viruses and we prefer very well our nurses to deal with situations. but unfortunately, what happened to lebanon is, and i might get mason of pastoral fees. we have the we have the economic crash. we had august 4 blocks that really destroyed for the kids 6 nurses while on duty on top of god. and all of these problems yielded to an exit this, i don't say that the nurses, the left the country. i say it's an exit, there's awfully bad news nurses to europe united states and to the country, which is almost the depleting our health care system from all its human resources in terms of expertise in terms of high level of the degrees in nursing
4:40 pm
and years of experience when you would think i would have guessed system and to danger when you talk about levels of experience to your own educational establishment says that 70 percent of nurses in beirut, especially in the capital city, lack experience. that's understandable, i guess because nursing is the kind of job is like passing you driving test, you learn to drive properly. once you've passed a driving test, you learn to nurse properly may be once you're fully qualified, but relatively speaking still new. what's the solution to this problem in lebanon when it comes to a lack of nurses? is it a simple as pay them more money, but how can you pay them more money when the economy is in such dire straits to start with? thank you for this very important question. initially, our problem and lebanon is not with the number of, nor initially our problem is how to retain our experience nurses. now that
4:41 pm
it through most of our hospitals are populated by an expedient nurses which means nurses who have less than one or 2 years of experience. and this is by itself is a danger to the head guess to oh, who? oh, our human resources is of course by giving them a better package. would that be better payment increase or other packages like kind of being that kids into school to go into school, paid tuition base to wish them to converse, to t covered their insurance, their medicaid. how would that be possible and then a collapsing country where we're really trying to work with the funds that we're hoping the country would be receiving through. i am asked so that a certain sum will be located to the guest system. ok. i'm going to be

college eyes, but thank you so much for talking to us from beirut. manor abbey, abdullah, doom it great to get your thoughts on this very important story. thank you. staying and 11 on the prime minister's meeting. his cabinet for the 1st time in 3 months. the government's been divided since october, about the investigation into that 2020 bay report blast the stand off has happened . as the countries economic crisis worsens. us president joe biden is being blamed for empty shells in us supermarkets, winter weather, and search in the army. kron cases in america adding to the disruption she hypertensive reports from maryland across the us. supermarkets are again experiencing supply shortages of such basic goods as milk eggs. and other household items, a wave of on the chrome cases, global supply chain issues, labor shortages and extreme weather of being blamed for the lack of goods and other contributing factor. the trucking industry, some 70 percent of goods delivered in the us all by road. the main lobbying group
4:43 pm
for the trucking company says it needs an extra $80000.00 new drivers to get goods where they need to be and helped meet that amount of drivers. people as young as 18 could soon be allowed to drive trucks into stays after completing a federal apprenticeship program for decades ago. in 1980 deregulation turns much of the trucking industry into what we now call the gig economy drivers are not paid for the time on the job. but for miles travels, they basically give the company that you're going to deliver to pick up from. they give them 2 hours free, sit there and do whatever they need to do. the driver doesn't get paid. many truck as a classified as independent contract is not employees. so companies don't pay for the upkeep of that trucks or invest in truck stops warehouses. a truck drives the allotted legal time and then stops wherever they are. you get after 56 o'clock, especially here on the east coast 5 o'clock a might be on the road somewhere, trying to find a spot. if there is
4:44 pm
a shortage that husband steve declared in wages for truckers between 1977 and 987 truck compensation fell, but i'm 35 percent. the average trucker salary is now around $50000.00 a year. but there is another stock, sophistic trucking has an overall job turnover rate of between 74 and 92 percent. that is between 7 and 9 out of 10 drivers leave their jobs. after a year, we reached out to the american trucking association, but they declined to speak to us. but the us census, in fact, shows a record number of qualified truck drivers in the us. that's why others say the problem lies elsewhere. there is no shortage of truck drivers in the united states, and in fact we have a surplus of drivers. we have millions of people in the us who are trained to become a truck driver and then decided not to do the job. dr. michelle, he says the trucking industry has used the same tactics since deregulation in 1980, to insist on further deregulation so that it can have as many workers to choose
4:45 pm
from as possible. that way you can offer the least wages and benefits while maximizing its profits. simply lowering the driving age is, is not going to make things better, burns them out. most people won't last won't last 6 months. something we've heard throughout the supply chain crisis is that it's decades of deregulation that focused on corporate profits instead of building infrastructure like truck deputies, for example, and taking care of workers that got us. she advertised the al jazeera maryland still to come here on the news. i and no n h l players of the winter games. that hockey mad sweet names to fill the gap would tell you how they going to do it. in jama, when we come back, ah,
