ah, what is true? what's vague? it doesn't matter. the only criteria is, what will people we shed light on the opaque world who's behind benefits. and why are they a threat to whistle open worlds this week on d w a. ah, ah, this is d w. news line from berlin, non starters, and red lines in brussels, russia, nato, end their talks, which no break through. nato wants russian troops to pull back from ukraine's
border. meanwhile, the kremlin ones guarantees that nita will not expand eastwards, also coming up more doubts about tennis. darnell, that job is playing in the is really an open after he concedes that he did not isolate after testing positive for the corona virus and december plus a birthday party. your ears will not want to miss the germans. the upon board is celebrating 5 years with its el fillum, or neat concert hall. ah, ira tilton, welcome to the program. talks between russia and the nato military alliance have ended, with no clear promises that an armed conflict can be avoided in eastern europe. the 2 sides are trying to find common ground as concerns grow that russia is preparing
a military invasion of ukraine. moscow has already position 100000 troops along its border with the country. it was calling for them to be pulled back. the tensions are feeling fears of conflict across the continent. unintentional side effects often crop up and politics. and this is exactly what can be observed in helsinki. at the moment. finland is traditionally a neutral country, a member of the youth, but not in nato, but since its neighbour, russia demanded a halt to nato enlargement. helsinki is discussing whether it is joined the alliance. after all, it's important that's it is discussed because we, we do have to consider that we have a long border woodthrush of the situation. is that costs only be care concerning? i've bought other than that. i don't know, i, i hope that they come in some kind of conclusion that i doesn't. escalade more and
that was exactly the task in brussels. the nato russia council convened for the 1st time in more than 2 years. the almost for our meeting focused largely on the situation in and around ukraine and ended without progress. all agreement on holding further talks. russia was not in the position or to agree on that proposal that didn't projected either or but the, the russian of cynthia medicare, that they needed some time to come back to nato. with an answer, nato hopes that agreements can be reached on how both sides announced their military exercises. and where exactly they can take place. new steps towards arms controls would also be useful. but it firmly rejected russia's demand that ukraine be excluded from joining the alliance. we will not slam the door shut on nato's open door policy. a policy that has always been central to the nato
alliance. exactly this, however, russia sees as a threat is so with nato, obviously continues to follow. the principles of the cold war containing russia is a priority of the alliances, but that damages european security. the situation has been closely followed by the ease defense menaces. they met in the french city of breasts and were updated by the nato secretary general. this is misty, it's important that we taught each other and their nato russia council is particularly suited for this to clear up differences and also build up trust again . finally, having these talks after over 2 years is an important signal, and we have to use it as he cannot and just miss minutes, whether they will succeed is being followed with interest in brussels and kids in washington, and also in helsinki. and here are the latest developments in the krona virus pandemic. germany had set a record for new daily infections. more than 80000 have been recorded in 24 hours.
the international and the committee says the winter games and beijing can go ahead . despite rising army kron infections, athletes and officials will be fully vaccinated and have daily tests. and the french senate has approved tighter restrictions for unvaccinated people. those who haven't been jab will soon be banned from restaurants, cultural facilities, and long distance trains and flights. tennis star, noel joker, which has been admitted or has admitted to proving, providing rather false information when he submitted his travel papers to the australian authorities. the government is considering whether to cancel a joke of riches visas, which would mean he cannot play in the australian open as the world's number one men's tennis player, novak jock of which is accustomed to life under the microscope. but even by his lofty standards, the intensity of the spotlight focused on his every move in melbourne is now extreme good. looks like he's going to be able to play and compete in the trailing
open, which you know, we do want the best players there. but like i said, i think there's still a few few questions to be answered on until that happens tough to give a definitive opinion on, on everything he won his initial case in court. but wait a deportation decision by a federal government keenly attuned to the feelings of australian voters, most of whom, who have diligently followed pandemic rules for the past 2 years. new information offered up by the serbian camp shows he did not do the same jock of which was photographed without a masked at numerous events, including an award ceremony for children based on documents released by his legal team. these were taken a day after he tested positive for cove at 19, though he says he was not aware of the result at the time. but on social media, he did admit to not isolating when he attended an in person interview with the
french sports journalist, calling in error of judgement. he also admitted to submitting false information to australian border officials in melbourne, which he called in and deliberate human error attributed to his management team. i don't like his arrogance. i don't, i feel he's come across as he's above it all. will they might have an explanation to get that job and then someone comes into that what they really fail. and so the final se rest with the australian government to stop novak chuck of it from possibly making sports history and melbourne or to lead a millionaire, get away with it. just like the tournament that starts on monday, there can only be one winner. steve pierce has been covering this trillion open for more than a decade. he joins us now from melbourne. so as we heard the report joke, which was admitted to giving false information to his drilling government. so the
question is, will he be allowed to play in these really an open that is the questionnaire, and absolutely is the question on everyone's in australia or in melbourne, specifically as well. and it's the question that alex hope, the minister of immigration and citizenship has been dealing with ever since monday, when the federal government lost that quote on a technicality around their original reason for not living in the country, which still remains on tested. another document contracting coded within 6 months of entering the strategy is a valid reason. they say it's not so this, even on those grounds, it's enough reason to think that the federal government would still cancel is the is there, and then you throw on talk. what you've just been playing around, he's the inconsistencies, and he's reporting. and also the fact that he made that mistake or agent that he's did on his migration papers. and you have perfectly good reason for that. you're going to step in again. but of course, if they do that,
maybe it goes back to court again, and it might be a situation they want to avoid. so it's, it's a 5050 thing and we're expecting a decision this afternoon. all right, well the controversy surrounding brokovich has dominated the headlines. if he does play, do you think the saga will impact his performance in the court? yes, i think it, well, i think it has to you know, he's had a very compromised build up to this. i know that he was doing some practice in europe before he left for us to proceed and he's had a number of days really. i caught up with not the right to not die, no ability to really exercise and no real practice time that he's got back on the court in the last couple of days. that's not to say that he can't find a way to deal with this, imply his way to the toner, but it is very much a compromise build up to the event which starts on monday. that was tennis commentator, steve pierce, joining us from melbourne later today. a german court will decide in a landmark case of a former come colonel from bazaar or sods regime. if the world's 1st trial
