thank you. the at. this is news coming to you live from berlin the german chancellor credits that you are trying to score a future movement for spurring on the environment policy matter annual summer press conference on activists like swedish totenberg driven how to box hill on climate change and she answers questions on a range of other topics including. our chief political editor of the beaches she'll be joining me in the studio also coming up to the u.s. scream swamp its war ship has shot down an iranian drilled in the god of the u.s.
president daughter trump says the unmanned aircraft posed a threat to the american naval vessel would be drawn strong minister zarif says he has no information about losing the drone. and in japan mourning paid tribute to the victims of an athlon attack on a q 2 or animation studio $33.00 people were killed in the. southern of a warm welcome to you i'm on the. german chancellor has been commenting on a range of issues that are and some a press conference here in berlin in addition to questions about the health and foreign policy as well as domestic policy america was also asked about climate change one reporter wanted to know what impact climate activists grettir turn burg . the find is for future movement while having let's have
a listen to her remarks about the young activist. who worked at it or even before grettir came on the scene we had decided on a climate protection law on substance could we do a great job of mcgregor and other young people pointed out that it has to do with their lives 1st and that they will live longer than us. and so that moved us to act more swiftly and his or her hands would be. a chief political entity and we should know was at that press conference with angela merkel and she's with me in the studio now welcome mashallah i'm going to america put a very strong focus on climate change at the start of her remarks to the press conference was that while she was also asked about it i mean it is friday and almost within hearing distance the next fights for future demonstrations were going on and in the past she has been on the record of at least paying credits to giving some credit to the parties for future movement she of course knows that she herself
was environmental stuff back in 1995 that's how long it is ago about climate change was a very pressing issue and germany not being able to fulfill its own commitments and still debating without a concrete outcome so far within the own governing coalition in 2019 is a pretty poor showing so i think this was her way of admitting that maybe we need to move fast and that's also what we see when we look at the polling about the green party that tackles climate change is doing indeed very well and edging ever closer to the cd you know a lot of questions on a foreign policy of are asked at this press conference what struck you most yes it was very interesting on iran which is an issue where germany took a lot of credit for getting this so-called iran nuclear deal the j.c. p.o.a.'s signed and the americans of course leaving it means that this whole thing could fall apart there she was out of whether there was an expectation or why. iran
should still stick to something that the americans are leaving and she said that it would be a positive sign a sign of confidence war the international community that's what can i say and not a very hands on. also throwing her weight behind the french president a man whom i call it is efforts to get the americans and the rain ians around the table so those germany has lost some clout there is not a big player in resolving or at least freezing what is currently a potential standoff between the united states and iran bring that right and she was also asked about donald trump yes and this was very interesting it was a very last question and she was asked head on whether she condemned whether the comment the racist comments towards his own congresswoman let's have a look at that statement i reject trump's comments and stand in solidarity with the congresswoman he attacked that's how brief it was and it was very straight and i think this is an interesting
comment to hear from her she simply had reacted to it because she had been asked straight on and i think this might potentially prove a bit of a tricky point when she next deals with us and they get a response of a firm and decisive leader let's talk about her hands she's unsub this question many times about her health but the questions don't seem to end this 1st take a listen to what she said today. i cannot function and secondly as a human being i am also personally very interested in my health. with saddam and after all as already mentioned in 2021 my political work will be finished. but i hope life will then go on and i would like to live it in good health didn't get those. isn't right the few. we have to say she's looking really didn't
really good have but what people there satisfied with her on for well they got pretty much of repetition of what she had said before she didn't sound very dynamic did she but she doesn't sound very dynamic at the best of times i have to say the german public we've seen some polling that feels that it is indeed a private affair but of course there are concerns still underneath the surface that she might not be able to hold out but the big question is how much longer does she have to hold out as german chancellor or remain in that office officially until 2021 that's what she's committed herself to that's what she feels very comfortable confident she will be able to manage as well but we might well see and i dare say it's more likely that we will see her government coalition with the social democrats for papa for then you know how did she seem to you all sort of personal question at this press conference tell us about that yes i mean this is also the chance to get a bit of more background out of her and also on the record so i asked so what kind of qualities she thought one needs to be german chancellor after almost one half
decades and this is what i got out of. all the most money. yes you need to have realistic optimism. and joy in what your doing. why don't seem this month and also a willingness to always reevaluated new situations in my opinion the most important thing is always a healthy curiosity about people. mentioned. now also asked whether she felt the need different qualities since donald trump is u.s. president and she straight out said no so there you go that's her advice on any man or woman out there who wants to come to a chance in the future we should occur if they did obvious chief political editor as a tool to you. 1st we heard america adding her voice to the international condemnation of president trans attacks on this group of non white democratic congressman but is
trying trying to distance himself from the fallout of his repeated taunts specially those directed at somali born congresswoman. this appears to be the case after his supporters were chanting center back at a rally in north carolina. he stepped out confidence and in no mood to back down donald trump was heavily criticized for his racist tweets against 4 democratic congress women but he's doubled down on his comments suggesting they should leave the country. to the suggestion for the hate filled extremists who are constantly trying to tear our country down they never ever do think it isn't their choice say if they don't like it a little leaves little i. love it challenger leave it. and then this from his supporters. here are the
targets of trump's attacks 3 of the 4 women were actually born in the u.s. you know nomar is a somali refugee naturalized is a u.s. citizen the women say trump is shutting down to bait based on the color of their skin. because i criticize the president i should be deported i want to remind people that this is what this president and his supporters have turned our country that is supposed to be a country if we allow democratic debate the president put millions of americans in danger that's name his rhetoric is in danger of being lots of people this is not just about. threats to individual members of congress. it's not the 1st time trump has used such divisive language to appear. his base it helps him win the presidency in 2016 and he wants to win again republicans have defriended through mountains. i don't think it's racist to say was it
racist as a love it or leave it i don't think a somali refugee embracing would not have been asked to go back to raise this issue on everybody from somalia to go back. with his comments analysts say trump is firing up his supporters and allowing anti immigrant sentiments to become mainstream. i don't think for them that will be the moment when we whether we aspire to be a whole lot better or whether we want to go but who in effect make america why. this is an unprecedented time in the united states with the president showing no sign of letting up on his racist rhetoric. and i have some breaking news feel a strong earthquake as hits just north of the greek capital athens the 5 point one

suspect had previously been convicted of robbery and treated for mental illness. devastating details are emerging of the arson attack that shocked japan witnesses say the fire at the cato animation studio spread so quickly that people jumped from windows to escape the flames. others scrambled up the stairs in a desperate and futile attempt to save their lives many of the bodies were found in a staircase leading to the roof. police believe it was this man who was responsible for the deadly inferno he wasn't employed by the firm and questions over his motive remain local media are reporting that the suspect had planned the attack because he believed the studio had plagiarized his work. a woman who wanted to remain anonymous says she interacted with the suspect at the scene. where it was i asked

studio. the crowdfunding campaign to help the company rebuild raced past its original target within hours. jealous to that hog and my guess been following developments and joins me now from tokyo who really find that this fire could have been related to the animation studio what can you tell us about that well actually the 1st ball i had when i. was that it could be. this and considering that just in japan. a lot of the iraqis and laid off of the work that you did with the scenes negotiations all these things. i could see how you could accomplish this is something that is if you look just on how it must be i'm afraid that the line to to occur is very poor so we'll
have to leave it then we'll try to establish another connection if you need to but you have how can vote in tokyo thank you very much for that. here's fed says an american warship destroyed an iranian in the strait of hormuz on trial accused iran of provocative and hostile action he said the drone was doll and after repeated warnings ignored. this is the ship that the white house says brought down an iranian drone the u.s.s. boxer an assault ship sent to the persian gulf just over a month ago u.s. president donald trump said a drone had come within a 1000 yards of the u.s.s. boxer and ignored calls to stand down. this is the latest of many provocative and hostile actions by iran against vessels operating in international waters the united states reserves the right to defend our personnel facilities and interests
and calls upon all nations to condemn iran's attempts to disrupt freedom of navigation. and global commerce. iranian foreign minister mohammad java zarif who was a new york for u.n. meetings said he could not confirm the possible downing of a drone for the owner of the record and about the growth of policy you know if. it was shut down. that's what i said you have no. doubt. have you met her with me to have you know i said oh come on this is the latest scrape between the 2 countries over who is provoking whom in the strait of hormuz. on june 20th iran shot down a u.s. drone it said had violated its airspace just days ago the iranian military seized a foreign tanker in this strategic strait saying the ship was smuggling oil they released this footage allegedly showing the incident the united nations has urged
restraint on all sides to avoid an open conflict. joining me now is by he's a gentleman based middle east analyst welcome to you now what do we know about what actually happened as we had iran's foreign minister said he had no information about a drone being shot down. yeah and his deputy say that she has tweeted basically the same line and then saying maybe the u.s. just down there or. it's all there is a claim on the one hand the denial of the other hand and just minutes ago that i heard you see the revolutionary guards announce that they will show and publish footage that this drone basically had captured and show how this drone has basically returned safe to in space so we have to wait and see that footage and see what actually you know. irrespective of the confirmation obviously in another incident between the u.s.
and iran and how serious an escalation is this. it is serious it is dangerous i don't think that this particular episode will be a game changer but what we are seeing is a cycle of incidents in which both sides are poking each other or trying to see at what point the other side is willing to. do to come to talk and to see to face saving exit and that is the pattern both capitals washington than tech run are basically pursuing right now both sides say they do not want to military competition and get the iranian partners has also proposed new talks telling us visit to new york if they're very potentially of conflict and if i call an incident that you mention or is this just political brinkmanship. i guess it's a guess it's both or so we hear both sides saying united they do believe them that they don't want a war but it's not as if you can control everything that's happening day in day out
in such a explosive context so it's very dangerous at the same time and yet they're sending out signals that there is some willingness to talk and that's this is what i meant with the face saving exit that you might see i think both sides are also seeing or trying to find out what is the point where i can get the other side to talk without losing face without being given too much concessions and i think this is also something that. the iranian foreign minister has laid out with the offer to talk about the jay security risks with president trump. right and if not doubt that that that the bike thank you very much for that analysis. finally folk dancing like you've never seen before no money to expect traditional costumes done from holding hands standing in a circle and maybe an occasional flap the home get in trouble for men called fitch guy like you do a bit of slapping but an incredibly high speeds why don't think phonetically have
