12:07 pm
a long time since the german chancellor received a welcome. this warm in washington merkel back into the white house. she is available of us many times. she had a great friend or a personal friend, as well as great friends united states after the 10 diplomatic relationship with the former president, trump, president joe biden, and chancellor angler mackerel stressed the friendship between that 2 countries we will stand up for democratic principles and universal rights when we see china or any other country working to undermine free and open society as we stand together and will continue to stand together to defend our eastern flight allies at nato, against russia,
12:08 pm
aggression. but germany and the us do not agree on how to deal with either russia or china. the plan gigantic north stream to pipeline will bring russian that full gaps into europe. washington says the project makes the continent more dependent on russia and threatened the security of it's small and neighbors, like ukraine, merkel has long championed the project, but play down the differences. now what's and we talk about russia and ukraine and in this context also about node stream to we've come to different assessments as to what this project entails. but let me say clearly our idea is and remains that ukraine remains a transit country for natural gas. i'm not ukraine like any other country has a right to territorial sovereignty. the chancellor farewell tour of washington began with a breakfast with vice president carmella harris and

12:13 pm
a lot of trade between these 2 key provinces. and then if you look at the attacks, so you would have seen community members utilize the poor people, elderly people, young people looting. but before they came before, that would have been people who would have gone in and cause devastation and destruction essentially opening up for the masses to come in and take advantage of what is a de escalate security situation. so it is suspected that this has been an orchestrated campaign by 4 people in the zoom a camp you certainly saw his daughter, for example, who had south of being investigated retreating videos of piano, key and looting, seeming to, to call people to come out to mobilize people to continue in that, so this was triggered by the rest of the for president. and it is suspected that of course, people in his camp are responsible for for this course in manuel for us in south africa. thank you. christie lebanon's prime minister designate has announced he is stepping down after failing to form
