druther with the major tasks that lie ahead for germany today or tomorrow this week and in the coming months you can win this that's what we want to talk to they see as you very soon and find a joint solution or i'm sure that together will have every chance of winning the elections to stocks by. let's bring in our chief political correspondent on the crane for more on the story that we heard very clear words there from the party leader i mean lusha tell us more about what he's been saying. well he spent much of his press conference displaying his leadership credentials and also talking about policy matters in a way that made it clear that he views himself as chancellor merkel's successor on issues like e.u. policy family policy and management of the corona crisis but he and the party late leadership also made it very clear today that they are
3:04 pm
looking for party unity that means unity between the big sister the christian democrats and the but they're a good party the c s u and therefore the final word has not yet been spoken until mr lasher does meet with mr sergio who leads that are very insistent party and the 2 can show a united front the decisions today by the party leadership both in the executive committee and the broader leadership were not unexpected because this is the leadership of the christian democrats and they are known to be skeptical skeptical about a shift in the balance of power toward their ego therefore there are some christian democrats who have emphasized that it's important to look at what the membership of the party in the federal states the party association is saying rather than only
3:05 pm
what the leaders have in mind however this where today it may not be the last word but it is a very strong word with a lot of weight in favor of mr lasher of these 2 candidates melinda who is more popular. absolutely mr there's a very interesting new poll that shows that among c.d.u. members who voted for the party c.d.u. and c.s.u. members who voted for the party in $27.00 only about 32 percent would still give their pope the vote to the party if mr lasher it is the chancellor candidate if it were mr cert 70 over 70 percent say they'd stay with the party that is a massive difference and if we look at the general population there is at least a 20 percentage point spread between those who favor mr sort of very much in the majority and those who say mr lash it would be a good chancellor so massive gaps if you look at the polls you mentioned that i'm in la should sees himself as
3:06 pm
a natural successor if you well to chance on the macro someone who will uphold her legacy how much will that help him. that's a potential strength it could also prove to be a weakness 6 months ago it was still a strength as germany was looking pretty strong in coming through the corona crisis and the chancellor was riding high in the polls and that is no longer the case in the c.d.u. has been dropping in the polls we saw that also recently in 2 state elections the government's corona crisis management very much called into question the city you are so facing a scandal because of corruption and mask i'm pretty sure meant so a lot of strikes against it and i mean i should if you does become the candidate is going to have hard work to do to win back trust many many germans with you mr sold out as the bolder and more innovative candidate here our chief political correspondent melinda crane but the very latest there thank you.
3:07 pm
israel's prime minister benjamin netanyahu says his country will never allow iran to obtain nuclear weapons netanyahu made those comments after tehran blamed israel for sabotaging its largest nuclear facility israel has not done directly claimed responsibility but israeli m e israeli media reported that an israeli cyber attack was behind the incident a spokesman for iran's foreign ministry said his country will retaliate against israel in due time the natanz enrichment site suffered a large scale blackout on sunday just hours after you a name and which meant was restarted at the plant the incident took place barely a week after e.u. back talks in vienna on reviving the international nuclear cord with iran. let's get some perspective on the story now we have by indecl dorf he has an iran analyst thank you very much for joining us what do we actually know about what or
3:08 pm
who was behind this cyber attack. at this point obviously we have to make some educated guesses and i think that the fact. attacks like this have happened before and that that has always been an open secret that that any israeli operation was behind it we can assume this time that this is the case again what is your already pointed out a lot of speculation is going on and nobody has claimed responsibility so far but it would be the most likely scenario and mike ok so let's talk about what happened because iran says that these steps centrifuges were damaged tell us some more about this infrastructure and why it matters why it's important. this is a key nuclear enrichment site in iran and obviously a key target for those who assume iran is in fact pursuing a. nuclear program that is supposed to produce nuclear weapons in the end right now
3:09 pm
there are talks going on in yemen as you already hinted to and we have over the last week seen in the tend to tack on and on this like tanker that has been supposedly carried out i think israelis and this nuclear facility is critical for you want enrichment and its progress and enrichment and it can be assumed that this progress and. the development of new centrifuges will supposed to be. undermined and that's what this attack i assume has been about well iran says this is also israel's afeard to sabotage these negotiations in vienna they mentioned where do those talks stand right now. there has been in fact some promising signals that the u.s. and iran in particular in directly conveying messages to each other through europeans the chinese and the russians were also party to this through the nuclear agreement that they are trying to find their way out to reste or the nuclear deal
3:10 pm
that was signed into a new 15 and israel has been an explicit opponent of this and with criticism coming from the prime minister but also other parts of the israeli leadership that this deal should not go ahead and this is why everyone assumes that israel has been behind these operations to halt these diplomatic talks going on and as you said and not still a lot of speculation what and we're not sure but it is not the 1st time that iran has claimed that its nuclear plant was sabotaged so how vulnerable are their plants for it to outside attacks. well we have to say that on the one hand obviously the security detail in all of these nuclear sites is quite advanced but at the same time cyber operations carried out by for example are obviously of most high tech quality one could think of and i don't really think that any
3:11 pm
security set up and in fact protect. against these attacks and that's also the reason why one can assume that most of it has been behind it because of the high advance operations skills that are necessary to in fact conduct such an operation iran analyst joining us from disavow thank you very much my pleasure. now to some other stories making headlines ukraine says russia has not answered its request to start a dialogue over the buildup of russian troops on its border kiev says moscow was a mass more than 40000 forces on its eastern border and the same number in crimea russia says the troop movements are defensive. a tropical cyclone has damaged several towns on australia's western coast leaving tens of thousands without power tropical cyclone so broacha hit the coast around 550 kilometers north of perth an area that rarely experiences tropical storms there are no reports of injuries or

gathering so why are there are no restrictions in place. there are all stupid distractions like the hood of the really big muscles to show up with what would make it so difficult but the spinners on the back to look at that people are also expected to maintain social distancing from family on the eurasian at the festival it is usually it will change once it's been reduced to a month because so much but of course it will be pretty sufficient so it's going to try to do is have a company for 3 this is just not possible or doing floors with crowds this massive didn't create did it not if they go about finding people meeting all stampede similarly in detail actions when you want to i don't country we have seen massive political realities and what about opposition parties as well of the. party prime minister that it will be massive rallies to be sent so why the country is imposing
3:16 pm
on the restrictions that often so on specially monster tips that such events and that allow them to be meet us as humans we will as the spike even for them and the michelle we heard about this a 4 day vaccination drive what could that have changed. now to me it looks like a not like the prime minister julia to utilize his white or platypi to look between the people to join out at high not just to get. as not you would vaccination restless dave just how do we do a day over 2 decades now but of course i didn't come to the good vaccine well as impressive number one of over 100000000. i don't mean you know what is happening but once again you look at the site simplification it's not that large a number is still behind talk it's and this finding is not listed in the backseat hesitancy so the festival is an effort to counter that oh it was not seen it just

close so this is easing now. for many here in england is being seen as the 1st mate or is a major step towards some semblance now of normality a good deal to the u.k. a successful vaccine program overhaul for the adults now have now received at least one dose of the vaccination and of course months of lockdown dropping case numbers fatalities dramatically here at the same time health officials are warning that people cannot become complacent charlotte so what restrictions do remain in place. that's why the government is edging people to behave responsibly today and going forward prime minister boris johnson has said his road map out of lockdown is cautious an air of bastable so long town is being eased in stages this is the the 2nd stage of the easing of restrictions but what that does mean is there are some still in place for example mixing indoors with members of another household not out
