7:02 am
on ukraine's border. moscow has spent the last few months gathering his forces on ukraine's eastern flank, raising fears about an invasion. but moscow once guarantees that nato will not accept any new members, and that ukraine will be not allowed to join the military alliance journal ripple's . it is an achievement of sorts that talks between russia and united states in geneva didn't end in failure. they were never likely to be a major success. but while russia insisted it had no intention of invading ukraine, there remains little sign of an immediate end to the crisis. it's not the situation we're ah, a deal breaker one way or another. he's in the vision. unfortunately, we have a great disparity in our principal approaches to these us and russia in some ways, ah, had or was it views on what needs to be done? us negotiators trod carefully. they promised they wouldn't be talk of ukraine
7:03 am
security without ukraine present. this instead, a chance to air respective concerns and get a measure of russia's true intent with tensions at their highest since the end of the cold war points of dispute between russia and the u. s. are plentiful, but ukraine is perhaps most urgent. russia has supported a separatist conflict there for 8 years now, and the presence of a 100000 russian troops on ukraine's border threatens a new war in europe. russia wants legal guarantees that ukraine will never become a member of the nato alliance. a demand flatly rejected by western allies. on monday, ukraine's deputy prime minister met the nato secretary general talks with russia will widen on wednesday to include nato members in brussels. and then the o. s. c. e. in vienna, on thursday. what russia is doing is trying to impose its agenda instead of returning to the negotiation table. and we have that very clearly,
7:04 am
that we will never compromise on the right for every nation in you'd have to choose his own path, including all cornel security arrangements in one, sir, to be a part of earlier russia's deputy foreign minister suggested the u. s. had not taken seriously his country's demand that ukraine never be allowed to join nato. that's an ominous sign by continuing to press what is a solid western red line? russia may be showing its hand that president putin may not intend this week of talks to succeed at all, but rather to use them as a pretext for war. jonah haul alto 0. they are skeptical of russians, insistence that is not planning. an invasion of ukraine is our diplomat. again, it's a james base. heard from the american ambassador to the un ambassador, the deputy foreign minister of russia says they have no plans to invade ukraine.
7:05 am
you are the u. s. official probably has more contact with the russians than any other you deal with them an almost daily basis. do you believe him? i wish to believe him. i wish that it is true that they have no plans, but everything we've seen so far indicate that they are making motions in that direction. and if they have decided not to move forward because of our engagement with them over the course of the past few weeks with president biden speaking to president putin twice. ah, then that's a good thing. but we will continue to prepare and to plan for responding. should they take any actions against ukraine? kimberly martin is a professor of political science have been odd college at columbia university. she says it's good the 2 sides talking that this week's meetings may not do much to low attentions. it's very unclear whether these talks will actually have any impact on
7:06 am
decision making. i think his decision about what to do in ukraine will have much more to do with a cost benefit analysis of what russia would gain or lose by militarily intervening than it is by how these talk sco. i think that futon is just trying anything that he can to see what might work. but we also have to remember that the background is as a k g b officer. he very much enjoys using deception against his opponents. and so anything that appears to be what he's doing on the surface may not be what his actual intentions are underneath. i think it's significant that russia is meeting with nato once again. because in october of 2021, russia temporarily at least withdrew from the nato russia council. in anger after i think it was 8 russian diplomats had been expelled from benito group as being undercover spies. so it's very significant that the talks are actually happening, that in itself is
7:07 am
a sign of progress. but i think we should keep in mind that nato has 30 members who have very different interests from each other. and so we should not look at this as being russia nato negotiations, as much as it is just the opening of a conversation that could lead to some kind of arms control arrangement going forward. russia's president is playing victory and defending ne, because it's dawn from what he calls a foreign backed uprising, 160 people were killed during last weeks and he got them protest which turned into the countries worse unrest. in recent weeks, robin forest walker reports from tbilisi for the moscow lead security block, the c s t o. it's 1st real military intervention has been a success. with president hawkeye of kazakhstan told his counterparts on monday that the deployment prevented what he called terrorist groups from taking control of his country, especially america, solely by the constitutional order in kazakhstan,

7:11 am
me ologist at the federation of american scientists. explain how the high number of code hospitalizations is harming of the patience were so unrestrained from cobra. if you have a heart attack or stroke or car accident, it might be many, many hours before you get care, which means you might not live. and so the overwhelming excess of deaths that will occur will not also be but also other diseases. and i think right now we're in the middle of the worst part of the peak. this little virus is a very, very dangerous line because it's used by many to say, let's get everyone infected and get it over with. and then we'll have her. but you know, what is the 4th or 5th wave that we'll see. and i'm a kind of so you base if that even if you had previous immunity to alpha variance on delta variance on the cross has almost no care about that. it has really
7:12 am
high and we infections and really have not seen contrition. kita stopping it, stopping and slowing transmission. that's why we have to take a break at this. i don't measures math testing mass vaccine requirements, mouse math mandates. and you know, math, that ventilation and air just infection standards. we have to start to transmission because even if it's slightly milder overwhelming, exponential increase will ultimately completely over one how care system in for the rest to survive the, to long covey. and that cost is not just now, but where years they have the decades to come less because president other a manual life has over the has tested positive for coven 19 for the 2nd time. he says he only has light symptoms, but it comes as mexico report. so record number of new cases. but alberto claims hospitalizations in death are not increasing the same right. expense. have these
7:13 am
indicators like behind infections by several weeks. 0 sanctions on integration day. the u. s. acts against an entities linked to the nicaraguan president hours before he takes officer fulton. ah, ah, look forward to brighter skies. the weather sponsored my cattle ways. now the wind stopped blowing down the gulf at this very obviously something had miss blue here is showers, probably thunderstorms and western saturday shells. then we got through key wait. and then in the northern part of syria, where the high ground will mean though full as snow east, that looks quite quite most arabian peninsula is quite obviously, that's not the case in the central and eastern met the circulating storm here, which means a lot of subtly breeze communicates the high ground,
7:14 am
increasingly high least in turkey, which means rain on the coast. natalia, for example, and snow in latin, is got that normally opposing it across the black sea, which is you don't really want to be anywhere in northern greece. are probably western turkey the next day or so. and then increasingly it's like just know for the east to when becomes a little bit lighter. most levant, his find, i think you'll find they'll be some right in parts of lebanon, maybe syria, mostly though levant is fairly dry. that's us. as part of that before, generally true throughout iran, there and pakistan and afghanistan, and the radiant peninsula through tropical after we descend further south has been some very heavy rain recently in the east in cape because of some of thunderstorms have been flooding. and the possibility of more to come with the suit to in a good part of south africa still involved. oh, the weather is sponsored by cataract ways, with
7:15 am
blue. ah ah ah, you're watching out, is there a remind about top stories this how? the president of the european parliament, david cecily has died age 65. his spokesman said he'd been hospitalized since december 26. after
7:16 am
a serious complication related to his immune system and u. s. and russian diplomats have wrapped up the 1st meetings in a week of diplomacy, aimed at d, escalating the tensions on ukraine's border. russia's deputy foreign minister called the discussions complex russians president his claim victory in defending neighboring cause. exxon from what he called a foreign backed uprising, one the 160 people were killed during last week's anti government. in a 1st medical science doctors in the u. s. had transplanted a pigs heart into a patient to save his life. surgeons have been trying to find a way to use animal organs because of a shortage of human organ donations. barbara ongoing reports, david bennett had been given 6 months to live and didn't qualify to receive a human heart. doctors told him there was no guarantee had survived receiving a heart transplanted from a pig. his patient was given an opportunity for this. this experimental transplant
7:17 am
was the idea mind that we didn't know what the outcome might be, but it wasn't going to be worse than traditional therapy. a gene edited pick hot was used to reduce the risk of the patient, spotty, rejecting the organ. and 3 days after surgery, dr. say his doing well, bennett son says his father is glad he made the difficult decision. he realizes the magnitude of what was done and he really realised the importance of it. i've been talking with him. i've never in my life i heard or seen my dad cry, but i think he realised the seriousness of his condition in the last couple weeks. decades of research went into the medical breakthrough. it was always said, does he not grasp? foundation is the future and always will be this was gordon multiple times. i would like to say that, you know,
7:18 am
grasp on vision is now the present. in the united states salon, an estimated $10000.00 people die every year, waiting for a transplant. it's one of the reasons says, cautious excitement. it's significant because we don't have a source of human organ replace. ah, of sufficient numbers to answered the met. ah, and not only to man but a timely manner. but for now, david bennett and his family have been thrown a lifeline. barbara anger aicpa, alta sarah, dr. martha galati is the president elect, the american society for preventive and cardiology. he says it's too soon to declare the transplanted success. it's not just the idea of putting a pic, heart into a human that's actually working for the last 3 days, but also that it was genetically modified so that we are less likely a human body is less likely to reject it. and you know, as you already mentioned,
7:19 am
so many people are waiting for organs, we don't have enough organs to meet the demand. so this can be a real game changer for us. this could be really pivotal, and we're going to learn a lot from this patient. if we did what we did write about this organ that they transplanted this, there should be less rejection is our hope. so we need to watch for that. we need to see the physical recovery. technically obviously, a pick heart isn't exactly like a human heart though. it's pretty close, but i did understand the surgeons did have some issues, you know, when they were attaching it there, there was like they called it plastic surgery that they had to do in some way to had just before attaching it to a human. so we need to watch and see how this patient does. but you know, it is very exciting to see this that you know, a few weeks ago they did it with a kidney transplant that again was from a higg and,
7:20 am
and so it'll be the but that was in a patient that was no longer living. they were already declared dead, but they were able to show that it was possible. now we have a heart, so let's see. let's also see ha, oh, much immunosuppression the patient needs. because the idea could be that they'll need less drugs to, to reduce the amount of rejection. nicaragua present, daniel ortega has been sworn in for a full term. will, tiger was re elected in november in a vote. the us in the you described as a sham, several opposition candidates were arrested during campaigning and independent election observers were banned. ortega's integration coincides with new u. s. and e. u sanctions on nicaraguan officials in response to the polls. latin america editor lucia newman is in santiago, chile. she says, will take her use his speech to signal closer ties to china. he really went out of
7:21 am
his way to a underscore that point during his inauguration speech, which began with a very, very long list of insults and criticisms against the united states and other european union. both of which he accused of still having colonial aspirations. but then i went, then you'd began to welcome the chinese delegation and he went out of his way as i say, to see it to lead nicaraguans. and anyone else who was listening know that now nicaragua has the support of china. he said that the county's delegation had come to nicaragua under quote, strict instructions from beijing to help nicaragua, that is economically and possibly also politically in exchange. nicaragua broke it to diplomatic types with taiwan in december. if the inauguration itself was delayed by at least an hour and a half while president ortega met with that chinese delegation, a high level,
7:22 am
one of that and sign dog cooperation agreements worth we understand many hundreds of millions of dollars. most people who have are close to the crisis to the conflict, they say that while the sanction certainly do send a message to nicaraguans that the international community is keeping an eye on the government. that they understand that the political conditions in that country are not ideal. that the democratic system is not functioning, and it's a sort of a would be the sending a message of solidarity if you'd like to have been a garage ones, especially nicaraguan, an opposition leaders who are in exile. it really won't make much of a difference. they say in actually forcing danielle ortega to change the way he's been active. the united nations begun meetings in the hearts him to find a way to end the political deadlock that has paralyzed sued on since in october military coup. but some protest like the sudanese professionals association are rejecting the u. n's intervention, the demanding removal of the military from power as
7:23 am
a pre condition to engage in any negotiation. you earns envoy forced to don volker perth, as hopes the consultations would help find a compromise. and are working in harlem, the time has come to and violence and to enter a comprehensive process to solve the crisis. that's why we initiated an international mission. and we invited the political and social players about governmental and non governmental, including the political parties, armed groups, civil society, women's groups, resisting groups to participate. so call me or i can say that the military didn't oppose our initiatives, and that is important. so i'm not talking about people jama. the military is present, and they have their own opinions and interests, but they didn't object the initiative. what dial security fall says in libya have rated a refugee migrant sitting outside a u. n. community center in the capital tripoli rights group say the more than 600 people involved in the protests have been detained on one person was shot as malik
