6:04 pm
these talks that nato and allies are portraying as very positive the fact that they even took place. and as you mentioned, went on longer than expected. the russians had threatened to actually not even show up for talks if they felt like their views were not being respected. so the fact that discussions were held in what everyone says were a civil was a civil manner is being portrayed as a success. now, secretary general stoughton brig asked the russians to commit to come back to another round of talks to schedule even a series of discussions. and he said they were not ready to do that. but it seems that that the russians are going to go back and consider, consider continuing talks with nato, and this is being portrayed as a win for, for the alliance and for the russians today. terry does anything change now for ukraine? what's their take away from today's talks? you know, if i were you crane, i don't know that i'd be feeling so much. reassured just by the fact that 30 allies in russia sat around a table because of the russians, as wendy sherman said,
6:05 pm
did not commit to de escalate. there were, were, was no indication they would pull back any of these tens of thousands of troops from ukraine's border, nor discuss deescalate in eastern ukraine. so really as we, as we discussed before, nothing was achieved in a tangible way at this point. and that's going to be felt very keenly in here at the same time. they are going to be very reassured in, in a, in another sense, that 30 ally sat around the table and complained to russia about his behavior in eastern ukraine and in and along the entire border with russia. so i mean a little of this and that, but i would imagine that he is not feeling so confident at this moment yet. so what's the way forward now for both sides of it. if you build up what both sides would like to see is that the other side, of course, come around to their way of thinking that's not going to happen on many of the proposals that russia laid out, of course, on nato,
6:06 pm
promising not to expand further east to never going to happen. but again, as i said, simply coming back to the table for another round of talks would be something that was inconceivable over the last 2 years when russia would not agree to come and hold one of these nato russia councils. so i think that native would be very much looking for moscow to get back to it and agree to hold another round of discussions . it may seem like very small steps, but in diplomacy, sometimes that's how it goes. and in a complete lack of diplomacy, as we've seen in recent years between nato and russia, that's being seen as a step forward. because every correspond terry schultz are reporting from brussels on the russia, nato talks. terry, thank you. let's get a round up of some of the other world headlines now. france says it's closing a mosque over anti semitic remarks. authority say the mosque also supported 2 groups band for spreading islamist propaganda up. the government increased checks on religious organizations after teacher was murdered for showing controversial
