12:07 pm

12:08 pm
completely idiotic because you know is it just is simply isn't strong enough big enough to be able to have its own way on everything international cooperation requires everybody to be on the same page and work on the same script and try to achieve the same objectives. turkish state media has been showcasing a russian made missile defense system bought in bulk by ankara in a way that might rile some of the countries allies it points out that the s four hundred is capable of downing strategic bombers fighter jets and cruise and ballistic missiles all of them of the kind made by fellow need our nato member the us the alliance was dead against the russia turkey deal in the first place the turkish president says he went ahead with it out of frustration with washington over its refusal to supply a comparable system. look they went crazy because we made the s. four hundred agreement what we supposed to do for them we've taken precautions and
12:09 pm
will continue to take precautions when it comes to our security and we'll fend for ourselves who take matters into our own hands there's no other way. let's bring in emory telescope and co-author of the new turkey and its discontents so why do you think the official turkish news agency chose such a provocative way to illustrate the s four hundred capability is. today it was one of the genders between the meeting between turkish leadership down and termed saw turkey there's another meeting in the united states if you know don has been visiting united states and this issue has been raised during the talks about the future of the syria and the future of iraq and of course in turkish public and also international public there are also kind of knowledge interest about the capabilities of this new defense system so i don't think this was
12:10 pm
a deliberate act to poor poor kate the public opinion but i think it was the kind of news. on the relation to the current issues today speaking of the systems capability is the u.s. state department spokesperson stressed that the u.s. has major concern is that the as four hundred systems won't work with other need or quit meant do you think that really is the u.s. is fear. i think nato is criticism a lot onto specs one is technical and the other only porticoes of course the computer system we do not a system is a problem is a question that turkey should address but the second question is all is also particular because from the. i saw tomato conses turkey that is getting further far from the nato countries and the alliance and from the turkish perspective turkey is conducting more independent more diverse and more assertive
12:11 pm
foreign policy and this requires to extent their options in terms of security is. now present everyone has in fact stressed that it is countries sovereign right to decide whom to buy what from do you agree with that. actually to a good question about the current situation in the region turkey's interest and emitters interest are not overlapping because turkey has concerns that occurs in syria. and also turkey's region is quite strong countries who have. emphasized capabilities turkey has been interested in buying a the fan since two thousand and thirteen first they signed a deal with the china and they took it off they canceled the deal with russia and who are the countries that turkey neighbors see iran russia georgia
12:12 pm
mania greece they all have our capabilities of course so if you want to invest in our teams our system to ensure this nation's security. speaking of which currently turkey is also negotiating to buy similar systems from france and italy do you think that if that goes through that would also insult the u.s. . i don't think so because they're also there to member countries but also we should keep in mind turkey has faced some restrictions and even sanctions from the european leader countries and united states especially turkey have been accused of read human rights violations insall disempowered off to turkey in one thousand nine hundred and this time it first israel not a matter of like contrie but the nato partner country how turkey to stop by their arms today turkey is under attack in europe and in the states so in terms of futures in the first security i think turkish government wants to increase the
12:13 pm
chances on the table that they could actually call different options this would be russia today this would be france tomorrow. emirates shall stand co-author of the new turkey and its discontents thank you so much for your time today and your very very unique insights more news after a short break stay with us it's. local blogs show you on the idea that dropping bombs brings police to the trigger locks forcing you to fight the battle. to do socks for the tell you to be gossiping about. all of our eyes and telling you all and i'm. proud. of all that we all already know what. strength of the

european union was very detrimental for the development of local and regional economies and only if these economies are developed and. they recreate a livelihood for the people they will be in the final event see the stop of this i mean gratian from these countries. welcome back to catalonia now where thousands have gathered outside a court and barcelona demanding the release of a dozen regional officials they were arrested by spanish authorities and a crackdown against the region's upcoming independence vote which madrid brands
12:15 pm
illegal here's a look back at the events around surrounding the catalan referendum. this legally legitimate for a thousand year old nation the likely cause of pennsylvania ever for a bridge to will be held in the sunday the first of the time. it's just us the house the problem is in this case it's just justice system and not the some one hundred twelve. let this aggression is and we're going to get it damages the state's ability and all of the constitutional guarantees.
12:16 pm
this referendum can be organized it was never legal all it gets moved. earlier we heard differing opinions on the issue from a political analyst from madrid and a pro independence activists from barcelona i. grew up around them it's our legal it's against the law. of the of their regional law that is suspended by the highest court in a spain it was. which was the only of the house of the original parliament some of the terminations democracy is legal we have voted with absolute majority of the members of our parliament and if they have
12:17 pm
a problem with them or cressy they will have to justify it to international community because he's magnus natale a globe a man members being arrested private people that they all know where house they are being arrested and then being questioned here not only against this funniest law on their being revelations it's even against the. most important things right now out of there they have to restore their order there on the law in dr ian i. we're not going to step back we will talk with all the international committee. with which we already have thousands of treaties the main places that they are selling their things and their business is the rest of the country so. business and got our own yeah without the rest of the country they are they have done do anything so. but this. is not forcing anything
12:18 pm
catalonia is a dynamic. with gives the net result to the european and europe we are not the few to terry and we are the ones of most exploited the ones i receive the most international investment. there is no compromise on the river and they have to drop out idea to leave the referendum bar because that to refer is not going anywhere catching on as a nation he was. three hundred years ago they did on the legality when they occupied the us and we are just correcting we're just amending that mistake catalonia as push for independence was very much encouraged by scotland's own attempt to go it alone they held a referendum back in two thousand and fourteen but fifty five percent voted against leaving the u.k. however following the brics
12:19 pm
a vote of two thousand and sixteen when a majority of scots went against the national decision to leave the e.u. talk of a new referendum emerged again we discussed both scottish and catalonian calls for independence with columnist leslie where the uk. for the catalans and for the scots the case is being made as an aspiring saying these are nations who want to become states now who you tend to think is an onlooker what else can the catalans do if their attempt to event haven't vote is resulting in such heavy handed approaches so it looks like it will be in practical terms it may be impossible to halt but the question is what next. in germany the general election is just two days away the latest polls show that two parties engler merkel c.d.u. and martin chilton's s.p.d. will lead the race however third place could play kingmaker should there be a minority government did or the left is among the contenders artie's peter over
12:20 pm
visited their rally in berlin to the left. they are on the left side of the political spectrum here is the name suggests they're campaigning on this election in the minimum wage for caps. and other major cities across the country also they want to see. more investment in health care and the dissolution of nato this strongly against that alliance they also want to see higher taxes a tax rate of seventy five percent or higher earners has been flaunted but this campaign has been ruled by infighting between the link between those who see themselves as traditional socialists and holding the what they see as the traditional socialist values of the party and between some of accused of just wanting to do anything to get into power and one of those that's caused some controversy has been one of the candidates for chancellor for dealing he said. she
12:21 pm
called controversy suggesting the berlin wall was a necessary evil also her views when it comes to refugees and migrants. receive a cream pie in the face from some of her. party members or some of those that support the party anyway say that she was too critical and too far even closer to the populist alternative for deutschland in her policies when it came to refugees when it comes to want to link you can expect all the left can expect to take when it comes to polling on sunday that currently set around eight percent depending on who you listen to. and that number they aren't going to be of course one of the main parties they could potentially win it but they could fall into a coalition however that coalition certainly will not be with angela merkel c.d.u. she said she won't stand with the link if she won't stand with alternative for germany either on the right so that leaves us in a situation either with counting down the last final stages of this german election
12:22 pm
campaign and one question that is being us though is what the russians going to have this. expectations that russia would try and meddle in the german vote and being met but that doesn't mean that there hasn't been interference the house just hasn't come from moscow german researchers say they've tracked down online trolls who've been posting attacks against angle or merkel and other leading german pounded it while putting online and promoting support for the anti immigration alternative for germany party. a lot of the stuff we're seen in germany can be or at least inspired by the movement in the u.s.
12:23 pm
the german cabinet meets every wednesday morning just behind me and after this week's meeting the interior minister came out and sounded almost disappointed that they haven't uncovered it's a russian plot to the favor asli fiddle and this year's federal elections we don't see that putin has meddled in the election campaign maybe they didn't try maybe it's still common since mr seems to think that the time is possible for her to see should look into the german government's own election software since it apparently only took warner i t enthusiastic not too long to find holes in it. we have found several fundamental errors in the p.c. will serve to have tasted fourth of july twenty seven c. including insufficient protection of the service and lack of encryption the transmitted results the weaknesses and now influence an election results in various attacks and are issues with fewer than two days to go before polls open fear
12:24 pm
mongering over a russian election come to nothing perhaps with this election being something of a foregone conclusion it's no wonder that we've seen conspiracies and fantasies about foreign intervention and interference being a little more interesting and more exciting to pitch than talking about the race itself peter all of our. stay tuned because in about an hour we'll be covering yet another rally by the s.p.d. with martin headlining and don't forget tomorrow we start our special coverage of the german election.
