7:01 am
has pushed the country to store base we report from the country's north where people are surviving on the elite plus calgary gives the winter olympics a firm no in a referendum voters in the canadian city reject a bid to host the games in two thousand and twenty six that's despite. calgary's hosting of the games in nineteen eighty eight. hello i'm tourney march and welcome to the program we begin with the hope of a breakthrough after a break to sit over brett said after nearly eighteen months of negotiations the european union and britain have struck a draft deal on the terms of a u.k. withdrawal agreement british prime minister theresa may has already summon cabinet ministers for one to one talks to brief them on the terms of the two. we'll they're
7:02 am
due to debate it later today may faces concerns from some of her colleagues and opposition from both the remainders and the nationalist right the conservative party's jacob riis malke had this to say about the draft regs that deal. for we've heard is true this fails to mean to be conserved was manifested and it fails to meet many of the commitments to the point was to mix it would keep us in the customs union and in the single most preach this is the it is a failure of the governments because it was there and it is a failure to deliver on. the conservative party's jacob riis mark there commenting on the draft brags that agreement well for more now let's speak. in london bigot what exactly is in this draft bragg's a deal do we have the details. we don't have the details yet and that's interesting you had jacob riis more on the right of that comes out of the party
7:03 am
commenting on something that he hasn't seen i believe he has seen it so we've had all sorts of reaction and speculation already but no we haven't seen the draft the procedure is that now is reason they is going to show it has already shown its and then this is going to present it to the cabinet and then she will go back to brussels with a sort of tentative reaction and say yes yay or nay so either we are accepting it as a government or not so for this deal to get off the ground the bereket theresa may first time to sell it to her cabinet how likely are they to accept it. that's the million dollar question there are several in my cabinet who are so-called great city is so they really want the hard cuts from the relationship with the european union and there would be the fear that some of them a would be more on jacob night and think that whatever reason they will have
7:04 am
a fresh doubt with brussels is probably a closer relationship than the ones they the one they want they want half more or less the only a free trade agreement and they're not really willing to compromise much and that they will want to be able to do their own trade deals they don't want to be bound by any rules in brussels and they're fearing that they could be something like a vassal state what is said so the question is how many of them are going to be willing to compromise and how many of them are not and will we see any resignations and the course of the day so teresa mayes cabinet is clearly divided on the subject of this deal what happens if those cabinet ministers reject the draft agreement. well that on most nights reason they will try to go back to. try and renegotiated also do depends on what exactly they have take to if it's just some small of mine
7:05 am
upwards or whether it's the principle which makes a reasoned job the reason may still be beyond the law and say it really is the question how exactly it pans out and all that psychology is also between the cabinet ministers and are they. maybe coordinating some revolts against some reason they which would really make have very very difficult or it's not mine not mine the issues that they're going to have a try to iron out of brussels. thank you so much for now i'm sure we'll be coming back to you in the course of a big it must there in london. you're watching news from berlin still to come the budget showdown between italy and the e.u. a defiant rome vows to take it to the next level. the first palestinian militants in gaza including hamas have announced they will halt

7:11 am
far from the yemeni capital sanaa only two hundred twenty kilometers but the mountains here are more than two thousand meters high the saudi air force destroyed and damaged many roads so getting relief aid to this area is very difficult. that's why the dear family are eating leaves for lunch the meager food source does not satisfy the nutritional needs the children are weak and often fall ill. find a way well my husband still had a job we could buy all sorts of things rice fish chicken milk juice anything yeah honey i see you really had. the dear family are not alone. in. the central hospital and how just treats

many malnourished children when they're able to reach it local pediatricians say transportation is the main problem i have an apathy many people are sick but just can't get to the hospital and had. no organization exists that helps people get to the hospital and that's why the death rate has risen to. the children that do receive treatment at least have a chance of surviving. but for some the treatment comes too late. many end up dying at the hospital so. yeah they're in either the number of malnourished children so far this year is already higher than it was in twenty seventeen it is an unabashed. any m. and a child dies unnecessarily every ten minutes according to the aid organization

7:15 am
and access to healthcare. so we see. we see scenes of misery across the county in the south but also in the north. as well so the needs are huge including of course food access to clean wanted access to health care and so on and so forth so four fifths of the population in yemen are in need of aid if i understood you correctly what are the biggest obstacles you face in getting a to the worst affected areas. well of course that i many challenges of course the complexity of the yemeni. conflict the multiplicity of actors the difficulty of movement across the country the difficulty that is stiction imports but also the massive humanitarian needs organizations on
7:16 am
their own will not be a response to the massive needs this is why the international committee of that at the close has been calling for a political solution for the conflict in yemen to ease the suffering of the population of the fighting in yemen has been intense we're getting reports though a lot in the fighting around the port city of data which is crucial to supplying yemenis with aid are you confident that the current mediation efforts between the warring factions in yemen will be fruitful. absolutely how did. sport. basic commodities but also aid to large swathes of the m. and. the fighting is. there if it would provide breathing space for it it as it is of the city to leave it there to take necessary movements to buy provisions or seek medical help what an ailing family member over the past couple
7:17 am
of days because the fighting has. also started receiving patients we know that it is now fully functional with dozens of patients and clearly this is a hospital providing a service for the population. and as long as it is working. people can access it they will come to us at the. port. ok. are you confident that these mediation efforts could bear fruit. we really hope so. right now we hope that everybody is exerted to bring an end to this massive humanitarian catastrophe
7:18 am
in yemen so any and. any efforts are supported by the i.c.r.c. . thank you so much for talking with the communication coordinator of the international committee of the red cross in the yemeni capital. committee struggle to find host cities for future olympic games was dealt a major setback overnight voting in a referendum residents of the canadian city of calgary ruled themselves out of hosting the two thousand and twenty six games calgary has hosted the winter olympics before back in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight but this time worries about the cost of the event led fifty six percent of voters to reject the proposed bed. from calgary d.w. correspond it has more on the non-binding vote that the city council is expected to
7:19 am
follow. its own internal thanks al warmly welcomed. it was a companion marked with joy and emotional debate with the yes side extremely well funded in comparison to the no complain that had very little money. calgary's legacy was changed by hosting the hugely successful winter games in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight the prospect of reviving the spike in twenty eighteen has polarized the people you know i've always dreamed of chatting on the podium singing the national anthem would be a battle but to think that maybe twenty twenty six zero zero calgary if there was an exact situation i was standing on top of the board you see the national anthem is a very exciting prospect but that the polls not everyone was so positive i'm voting no today because i don't believe city council has presented us with a budget that is accurate and i'm worried that taxpayers are going to be paying for
7:20 am
this for the next twenty to thirty years the i.o.c. has struggled a lot in recent years to find cities willing to spend billions to host the games recently they come up with a new plan the olympic agenda twenty twenty claiming to reduce costs for hosts they keep on telling people to keep on telling potential host cities that they've changed but there's no evidence that they've changed. ultimately the cost of over three billion euros was simply too high the answer calgary was no. the no here from calgary next another low point for the future of the olympic games popular support is shrinking but she leaves the bidding process to those countries willing to host the games either way with or without the democratic support of their population. or demonic and. italy continues it shared with the e.u. italy is sticking to its guns on its budget absolutely sticking to its guns is
7:21 am
exactly terry its sticking to its big spending budget plan rome did not meet a deadline set by the european commission to present a revised budget plan one that would be in line with the used ability rules brussels rejected rome's initial plan which saw deficit spending at two point four percent of g.d.p. italy has the second highest debt to g.d.p. ratio in the euro zone the international monetary fund warns that into these heavy spending carried substantial risks and could spur market turmoil. prime minister material so the made clear where his priority was. i can only say that we are working on a financial plan that includes more jobs more rights for retirement and less taxes if not for everyone at least for many italians if the european union likes it will be happy if they don't like it we'll stay the path anyway. early retirement lower
7:22 am
taxes and a basic income for all italians that's what the populist movement in italy ran on and that's what they want to deliver and it will be paid for with new borrowing the budget raises the deficit to two point four percent of gross domestic product but italy already owes two point three trillion euros that's one hundred thirty percent of its gross domestic product more than twice the limit stipulated in the euro stability pact. the concessions to brussels a small. of course send a letter to brussels and he said that if we increase income from real estate from the sale of public real estate we'll be able to make more money by cutting and selling everything that isn't useful we've clearly stated that our objective is to maintain a deficit of two point four percent and we've committed ourselves to keeping the deficit to two point four percent. selling off a few buildings is unlikely to calm down anyone in brussels hours before the budget
7:23 am
deadline passed the i.m.f. also criticised rome for the current state of the economy with low income levels and high unemployment. all right and for more let's cross over now to brussels to our correspondent band gets bail so refused to submit a revised budget plan as was widely expected how is that going down with you officials the u.s. official was. opposing this budget from room because the simply the numbers don't add up the debt level is too high and the approach is not sustainable and they also posed by the fact that italy's in total defiance of all european road it's a first time that is that this is a budget that is completely rejected by the e.u. commission and it's a first time that the government is not cooperating with the commission to find a solution and so brussels is now on for
7:24 am
a showdown with italy so what's next what does this show include. but the commission can as early as next week launch a so-called excessive deficit procedure and advise italy formally to come up with new proposals and to get down to two to straighten out the numbers the estimate for growth for example of the debt levels but this procedure can easily take six months or more and the plan here in brussels is to take it until after until after the european elections in may two thousand and nineteen and the commission also needs to support from other member states but it will be a very messy procedure given that the populous right wing government in italy will not cooperate so far well it'll be interesting to see how the markets react in the meantime of course brussels has a lot on its plate these days also busy with breaks it in apparently there's
7:25 am
a draft a deal on the table we already talked about it earlier in the show about the difficulties that timmy's amazing expected to have in getting her cabinets approval for the deal let alone politicians approval but what do you hear from the new side how much optimism is that. that officially that you felt the silent there's no prove of this no board to this deal actually exists to the officials here in brussels keep fingers crossed that the procedure as this very delicate procedure in london will take place and then officially the people here say very very close to a solution but this has also be approved by the e.u. twenty seven member states which will gather here this afternoon and tonight to see what comes from london but this optimism that this deal can be done if london is agreeing and so in brussels all eyes on london. they get in brussels thank
7:26 am
