9:03 am
a war. unity is the main goal here, blinkin and his german, french, and british counterparts disgust the intense fears that russia may soon invade ukraine. their focus, how to credibly deter moscow with warnings of what could follow even as were relentless and pursuing mr. bradley path. will continue to make very clear that if moscow chooses the path of further aggression, we will impose swift and massive cost. if one was landing, and that's who we urgently call on russia to take steps towards these collation, you divide act any further. aggression would have serious consequences. see it would be even the cons. extensive nasty, but comments by the us president a day earlier have right questions about whether those consequences really do apply to any active aggression. russia will be held accountable. if it invades,
9:04 am
it depends on what it does. it's one thing influences minor corrosion, and then we end up having a fight about what to do and not to which cetera. but if they actually do what they're capable of doing with the force, the mask on the border, it is going to be a disaster for russia. the white house later try to clarify, insisting that the west would react come, what may. but the issue has highlighted questions over what level of aggression would trigger what kind of response the u. s. has made it clear that it would expect berlin to target the controversial nod stream to pipeline which linked germany to russian gas. it's also worth noting that gas is not flowing through nor stream to yet, which means that the pipeline is leverage for germany, the united states and our allies, not russia. for now though, there is another round of diplomacy coming up, antony blinkin will meet his russian counterpart in geneva on friday. same as one
9:05 am
of the last chances to find a way of avoiding war. and my colleague on his, on a phenomenal, is in geneva to follow those talks of for us. if you turn studies there between the us and russia, what are we expecting from, from today's meeting? i would say that the expectations are not very high here in geneva. on this very stormy windy day, and you as secretary of state, lincoln told the german press that he is not expecting any breakthroughs. and it's more about taking stock of where we stand right now and whether ad diplomatic solution to the crisis can be found. and what we have heard from the washer and are also quite pessimistic and they are continued with their very aggressive rhetoric. and there are demanding written guarantees from the u. s. and from nato. and you
9:06 am
asked secretary of state lincoln has already said that the you asked is so far, not prepared to give them a written response. lincoln has met with you called about fergus. some of his a you called about this week. do you think? is there really a united front towards russia? well, i think that there are united in what they are ready to do, if there will be a russian invasion of ukraine. and they have made clear that they will be massive and severe consequences. however, we also have to say, and that is something, what is it that you asked president joe biden has admitted in a press conference that they are not so united when we speak about to what extent they are ready to impose political and economic sanctions with some european allies like germany or france, for example, who have been in the past quite for lack of,
9:07 am
of intellectual so much pain on russia. well, russian troops have gathered near the ukrainian border. how have nato allies responded so far? so far they have made it clear that they are siding with ukraine and they are ready to support ukraine at the baltic states, for example, they want to provide ukraine with her anti tank missiles and where they're single air defense assistance and weapons that they got from the u. s. and e u. s. has improved that and dead air washington wants to increase its military assistance to ukraine. and as you can see, there is a strong support for ukraine in this crisis. i some of
9:08 am
a mom of they're joining us from geneva. thank you like summer now the 1st deliveries of aid a supplies have arrived in tom r days after it was hit by a volcanic eruption and it's an army in the south pacific water was among the supplies delivered after toxic ash from volcano contaminated local drinking water communication equipment was also flown in after the islands were virtually cut off from the outside world. more aid is expected to arrive by air and see in the coming days. we cannot talk to dr. mark jacobs. he is the director of pacific technical support with the world health organization and his leading w. i chose tama volcano response and joins us from fiji. marco 1st, a deliveries have arrived in tara, so presumably that means 8 workers on the ground have been able to make a 1st assessment of the situation. what can you tell us? well, the 1st thing to say is that the,
9:09 am
the assessment. so of course being led by the tongue and gotten them and done that the you and staff including the w. r, jo, staff that were already on the grounds, i helping with that. but the assessments are being done by the government. those 2 statements had not been completed yet by their ongoing, but certainly the, the initial assessment indicates that the 1st set of needs for food for water intra fuel as, as your introduction already highlighted. some of the ty is a very remote island group. are you expecting any difficulties with regard to your supply chain will look, it is remote certainly by european standards, but it has, it has infrastructure for, for receiving fly. now back when you get a strip is being played as as you mentioned, ships are able to come in to the main island, toma top 2 and 2 other islands as well. there is
9:10 am
a number of countries that by pacific standards are not that far away that already same slot and plot like australia, new zealand, and ships are on the way. so i think, i think the logistics side of things is working out. we already in the country had a number all pre petition before supplies. i, for instance, w, i, jo in recently been working with tongue to make sure they had their own emergency medical assistance team in place and ready to deploy within target. and that tame with pre position supplies was able to, to get very quickly. and so the most depicted areas and do very quick health assessment. so those sorts of things to help. but now i'm, i'm, i'm very confident that that logistic side of things is being, is being worked through and will continue to be worked through in some ways the, the main, i think logistics challenge is probably the communications. why? because it will take a bit longer. i think for the communication table to be to come back online,
9:11 am
but at least things like internet is working in a limited way already or come up jacobs from the world health organization talking to us there from 50. thank you. so i'm now to take a look at some of the other stories making headlines around the world. u. s. prosecutors have charged for bell erosion, government officials, with aircraft piracy for diverting a ryan air flight last may to arrest dissident journalists, roman protest, savage. the u. s. justice department says the officials concocted a false bomb threat to force the plane to land in the belgian capital minsk. lawmakers investigating the attack on u. s. capital last year have asked a vanka trump to testify. the daughter of former president donald trump used to serve as his senior advisor. her summoning marks a significant step in the probe as investigate. investigators are seeking answers
9:12 am
from trumps in a circle about his role in last year's insurgency. officials in gonna say at least 17 people have been killed and dozens injured in a massive explosion. in the west of the country, police reported the blast occurred when a truck carrying explosives to a gold mine collided with a motorcycle videos posted on local media, showed a large blast site and dozens of destroyed buildings. a report commissioned by the catholic church and germany as found that former pope benedict knowing knowingly failed to take action to stop for priests abusing children. the cases span the period from 1977 to 1982. when he was archbishop of munich, the independent report was compiled by german law firm. now a british belgian teenager has become the youngest woman ever to fly solo around
9:13 am
the world. after 5 months, journey's era, rather ford is back on terra firma in belgium, will be speaking to zara in just a minute. but 1st i look at her record breaking time of the year. there was no cabin crew on board to prepare for this landing. at 19 year old daughter weatherford touchtone in belgium, she became the youngest woman in history to fly solo around the world. and the youngest person to do so, you know, micro likes aircraft. a heroes welcome awaited her. a really has to be, they've been a crazy trip 5 months long and even it's lost those pretty tricky. so even yeah, it's been a challenge the whole way through rutherford's around the world right spanned 5 continents and covered 52000 kilometers. she raised money through sponsorship, and often stayed with host families. zara shared the highs and lows of her adventure on line. the trip took much longer than expected,
9:14 am
and there were moments of turbulence. the right now my v russian visa has just expired. so i'm actually not allowed again to the country, which is frustrating culture is ever that way. oh, i'm not allowed to get to places because they don't like, gladly lying around for you on the ground. that is, the 1st, it will be, it was fine and then suddenly the class are getting low and low. think at the i one point i was at 600 feet above the ation, which was pretty scary. beyond breaking records, zera had a bigger mission meeting locals and giving talks along the way. she tried to inspire other girls and young women to get involved in aviation science and technology. back on belgian soil that work continues growing up, but it's the many of the other female pilots, some kind of hoping to be friendly face and yeah, but it's an amazing messages from the girls and women to saying that they started
9:15 am
flying up to see what i've been doing with their legal reading, your teeth, your written? i think so. i think i like the thing say it was an emotional reunion for his are his mother, beatrice. he says there were some nail biting moments. of course this is not without risk. she is breaking records after all, but, but i was very confident in cyrus skills and her experience and also in, in the team the whole team behind. and that we kept at the same spot, barely out of high school. zara rather ford plans to keep her feet on solid ground for no and apply for university. but she hopes her double world record, will encourage girls everywhere to spread their wigs in any way they can. and i'm not more than delighted, and zara front the time to talk to us. there she is her her congratulations. first of all, welcome to t w. in the 1st are my 1st question, of course, how do you feel today? and super happy. i thank you for having me. it's really strange being back home and
9:16 am
see my family again. i can imagine that you were away for 5 months. you covered 50000 kilometers in your own tiny plane. i must say. tell us about the scary moments you you had in the i am there must have been some. yeah, definitely. i think one of the most challenging moments was flying over siberia. because it's like minus that's 5 degrees us on the grounds and these very long flights, where i'd get 400 glances without saying anything. human, no roads there, electricity, cables, village is obviously new people. and so if the engine stops, then suddenly i am hours away from rescue. and i don't know how long i can survive in minus 35 degrees. that is indeed scary. what were the highlights? i'd say some of the high it again, flying inside there for the interest is very remote places this i barrier. i had to
9:17 am
avoid the nose current asset base, but that was a really interesting phase on it soon. and then tie one is beautiful. saudi arabia is very beautiful as well. so some of these, some of the longer, more challenging flights will also obviously the most rewarding ends. and also the admin they had in the most amazing. so tell us or what made you plan that a trip in the 1st, but she just didn't wake up la mornings are going to fly around the world to do right? no, not great. say at always dreamt of doing something crazy and flying around the world, but i never thought it be possible. so i always thought would be too dangerous, too expensive, too complicated. so i never thought us about it, but then i was sending exchange school and i thought actually this is the perfect time to do something crazy when i've got a year to do nothing basically and fly around the world. so i plan my route. i got sponsorship, i said the soft web hosting company from bulgaria came on board to help out. and i basically set it for another old, quite an amazing story. what did your friends and family say when you approached
9:18 am
them with this idea? my father was super excited. my mother was a demo his and my friends, i think they had a moment of wait, what are you doing her? i mean it will be really kind and i see very supportive and they're all very excited to see me again. so i'm really looking forward to seeing my friends again. well, you said that your aim was to inspire especially girls to get involved in the science and maybe even aviation. what's your message to all those girls? all that right now. that's right, growing up, i didn't see many other pilots and i said i was those going to surging some trying to dear, friendly face. and so if you're a guy like flying, you know the, anyone oh haiti and, and just keep going. it's a very rooting, flying is amazing, and you get to see some pretty cool stuff in there. so last question, what, what are the next steps there for you professionally? are you are, i mean, to become a professional aviator?
9:19 am
i for right now i'm, i'm not sure at all. so before this trip i was very certain about what i was going to do when i was going to that. now i'm kind of going with the flow. i would love to keep flying and i will keep flying. but a huge do one is to also become an engineer and a and get an engineering degree. we wish you good luck with that, sarah. rather for their in brussels and ovation pylee on our own right. thank you very much. thank you. and we're looking at austria now where the parliament has passed a new law making coat cove at 19 vaccination mandatory for adults. it's the 1st european country to approve such a wide reaching measure so far. only 72 percent of austrians have been fully vaccinated against the corona virus. that's one of the lowest rates in western europe. 137 in favor to 33 against
9:20 am
austria's vaccine mandate passed by a clear majority in a 1st for any european country legislators said it was a drastic but necessary step. you completed the compulsory vaccination isn't something we wanted, but unfortunately it's become a necessity to close that big vaccination gap in austria. it's my deep conviction that only then will we have a realistic chance regaining the life we had before the corona virus. and me from early february, everyone over the age of 18 must be vaccinated. with exceptions for those who are pregnant, have a medical exemption, or have recently recovered from coven 19. after an introductory phase, anyone still holding out could be find thousands of euro's thousands have joined regular street protests against restrictions and vaccination
9:21 am
. a few 100 protesters gathered outside parliament in vienna as votes were cast. but inside only the far right freedom party voted against the mandate, their leader said he would continue to refuse to be vaccinated. her influence this vaccine mandate is an act of disenfranchisement john m ers with a single blow. millions of austrians are being downgraded more, but they're not independent sovereign paypal, any moral. they're sinking to the level of subjugated people. of servants, one or more often em font connecting. the bill must now passed the upper house and the freedom party has vowed to challenge it in court. now with one of the highest vaccination rights in the world, spain is now looking at an exit strategy from the pandemic that says it's time to
9:22 am
start treating cove 19 like any other endemic, seasonal respiratory disease. it might be of you that resolves with a spanish public, but it doesn't yet have the backing of all the experts did abuse yon phillip shaw's reports from madrid. cafes full of people enjoying the sun in the spanish capital. some guests may even have covered the infection radius breaking records by the day. but it seems like almost nobody cares. apart from a general mass mandate, few measures are being taken against the virus. but i mean like we must free ourselves of this fear. you can't live in constant fear on the other another the most l daniel get damaged that this virus can still do, has lessened considerably recently. funding there they say you name, i think we are learning to live with the virus. just as we have with a flu virus and with others seeing as getting on day at a man, they know this relaxed attitude is partly based on spain's vaccine nation success.
9:23 am
more than 80 percent of spaniards have been jumped at least twice. while the number of hospitalizations has been rising for weeks, the high death rate seen an earlier waves has been absent. that's why spain government has now taken a radical step. there will no longer be mass testing or strict quarantine rules in the future. instead, the infection rate will only be estimated if flu instead of a deadly pandemic. this is how prime minister sanchez wants to treat the corona virus in the future, and he sees them serve as a pioneer in europe. but they're also critics that say that it's too early for such experiments. they point out that many spanish clinics continue to work at their limits. one of spain's leading experts, isabella sola also are just caution. she conducts research on the corona virus at the national center for biotechnology class leaders by emerson gun. but we must stay prepared for surprises. the virus development is simply unpredictable,
9:24 am
of course, at ones to keep spreading. that may result in a weakening of symptoms that it causes. but the opposite can also happen. thankful pianist matters of what the hell of and out here at the moment. it seems as if it's the people in spain who want to surprise the corona virus with their new attitude. after 2 years of pandemic, they seem to no longer one to believe that the virus can still be dangerous. and finally, been a new addition to unity coals list of cultural heritage, the tom, a tie, dance known as nora, the has been awarded as the special status. nora has been practiced in the thailand's muslim majorities south for centuries and performances that combined dancing, singing, and storytelling. take a look ah, for centuries dancers in southern thailand have been performing nora. it's an arc
