also coming out. and initial reports says the pilots of the ethiopian airlines jet followed all recommended procedures but were unable to keep it from di think out of control. and standing ovations from the u.s. congress as nato secretary general yet still birthmarks the alliances seventieth anniversary but how is nato has helped at this advanced age. america haven't seen it's good to have you with us. with fears growing that britain could exit the e.u. without an agreement the german chancellor is heading to ireland the only use state with a land border with britain ireland's economy could take the biggest hit from a disorderly brags that dangle americal is concerned about the security situation
3:02 pm
there so we'll have more on that later but meanwhile in london prime minister theresa may is continuing talks today with oppositional labor leader jeremy corbin in a new push for a compromise on brags that she needs to present a plan to leaders by april tenth after they rejected her request for a brief extension of may and corben held a first round of talks yesterday. a cry for help beamed out from the white cliffs of dover betty fifty kilometers of water line between here and france but the antibiotics it activists behind the stunt a worried it could soon feel much further than before. with series a may still wrangling to find a break sit compromise the risk of no geo is mounting for anxious brits there was some good news on thursday the european parliament voted to grant visa free travel to u.k. citizens after breaks it really for holiday makers but in westminster no signs of
3:03 pm
a breakthrough in the breaks it deadlock may is meeting opposition leader jeremy corbyn for more talks after wednesday's meeting failed to yield results. we had a discussion. doesn't get as much as i expect but we are continuing to have some discussions on the meeting was useful but inclusive. time is not on their side the u.k. is due to leave the european union in just eight days and the bloc isn't budging on the timeframe. april twelfth is however the ultimate possible deadline for approval. if the house of commons does not express itself by this date no further short extension will be possible. for a quirk i think that a no deal at midnight on that goal from april is now one more and more likely scenario. that something many parliamentarians want to avoid on
3:04 pm
thursday the heights of lords debating legislation to force to reason may to seek a delay but says a longer extension will only be granted if the u.k. puts forward a concrete plan and it's by no means guaranteed m.p.'s will unite behind any compromise may manages to broker. for more we're joined now by diggler hughes very good maass who's in london and arthur sullivan who's standing by in dublin so bill gates i'd like to start with you as through some mange over a korban continue their talks the german chancellor as we mentioned is in ireland how is her visit to dublin being perceived in london. well the german ambassador to ireland said it was a show of solidarity but i'm going to america and this is something that will be noted here in the u.k. people do know that our land is particularly vulnerable to breaks it having this land border with northern ireland and they will hope that.
3:05 pm
america and the overwrites in their talks will form some new consensus and i think the hope is also that they will talk about how to prevent and no deal breaks and so you see the hope that germany. once again come to the u.k. side i think breaks a tears and in the course of bricks it would really hope to have more solidarity with the u.k. so possibly some disappointment and really looking what's coming out of these talks in dublin now. well arthur we understand you've been talking to residents of dublin abound the german chancellor is a visit what do they make of it. yeah that's right so i had spoke quite a few people this morning when they were commuting to work and when they were around their first thing in the morning and quite a few people actually weren't aware the chancellor market was going to do it but all of them knew if she was coming the reason she was she was coming and most of
3:06 pm
them were quite confident and optimistic that she was here to show support and solidarity with ireland over not just the border issue but the entire break the process show that germany and the you as a whole is very much on our inside angela merkel is very i would say very well respected in art and she's been so visible and so prominent for so long and the words that kept going back and i ask people there oppressions of her were sensible fair pragmatic and people think that she is going to come out today and simply stand by arne and although there was i would say a small degree of caution that possibly because of her overall influence and the fact that she has taken the trouble to come all the way over to ireland that she might be asking the irish government to do a few things that they might find slightly difficult but overall people were optimistic and confident that she was there to show support for us and for most right and well merkel is known to be among those who most want to avoid and no deal breaker sets and she spoke ahead of her trip let's have a listen. i. mean we often say in europe it is
3:07 pm
a question of war and peace and we can see that it's fundamentally a question of violence or nonviolence of course we want to play our part and so i will look closely at the situation regarding the irish border and ways to find solutions to prevent hard breck's it. that sent these solutions must ultimately come from london. we can see that intense efforts are being made but also that there are clearly very different competing visions i hope that the discussions led by theresa may are successful. all right a clear statement by the german chancellor her preference is that there is no hard border in ireland arthur what is the irish government hoping to get out of the chancellor's visit. well i would say the first thing that they're definitely not hoping for is anything like a kind of rebuke or any news that comes out of this which suggests that iron needs
3:08 pm
to back down on the back stop or that they would need to in any way ease their position to facilitate some of the concerns about that than the practically years have d.m.p. have i think that would be the nightmare scenario that the market comes here with a very stark message what they really want is it's a simple show of solidarity whenever he should be over a certain angle america greet the media in a few hours' time that there is a very strong an expression of support frightens position under merkel remains even though her her period as chancellor is coming to us gradually coming to an end sure man's europe's most influential and powerful politician and the p.r. strength of that image of angela merkel standing in dublin on the side to teach uk expressing full support frightens position would be the ideal scenario for the irish government because they would see that as the ultimate answer to those in london and those aren't brigadiers who still believe like that for almost three years now that at the end of this whole process germany and the german care
3:09 pm
a lot of your anglo-american or whatever it is going to simply say ok we need to do a deal we're going to start and on the boats they believe the irish government would believe a strong show of support for marcos at that press conference would be the ultimate rebuke to them particularly at this very late stage of the whole process and they are going to what about the view from london how how high are hopes there that america can act as a sort of representative of the e.u. to put pressure on the irish prime minister and find a solution for the irish backstop. well it's interesting also to word authoress that i think a long time it was true that the brits it is here were still hoping that there would be some last minute concessions when when it comes to the irish question but now it seems that the focus has shifted here in london and series a may has unsuccessfully try to get her deal three with the support of the conservatives in her own party on the right of her own party she's now looking to
3:10 pm
jeremy corbin and we know that the labor position is a softer position when it comes to the customs union so that would in itself prevent the irish backs of that would solve the irish question together with alignment with the single market so there is a shift in the position and tourism a seems to know go towards those who go for a softer break said which would also be an on to the irish question because mass reporting from london and arthur sullivan in dublin thanks to both of you. you're watching d.w. news still to come. w. talks to a russian activist who felt acutely ill last fall he says the kremlin had him poisoned. him. but first let's get you up to speed on some of the other stories making news around the world police in japan have arrested former nissan

3:12 pm
followed all guidelines issued by the plane manufacturer boeing but we're still not able to control the aircraft the report was based on data from the flight recorders of the boeing seven thirty seven max jet all one hundred fifty seven people on board were killed when the plane crashed shortly after takeoff on march tenth it was the second crash of a seven thirty seven max in months leading to the grounding of the planes around the world. if the o.p.'s transport minister presented those findings and said there were two main recommendations. it is recommended that their craft flight control system related to the flight control ability should be reviewed by the manufacturer. and the second one is. a variation or tory t s should very frayed that their review of the aircraft flight control system related

3:14 pm
or were lines it has been for the mental to european security for freedom. we would not have the peaceful and prosperous europe we see today with out the soccer force and the commitment of not the states for your enduring support i thank you today. has long look to washington for leadership the president trump has questioned the value of the alliance he's also demanded that member states shoulder more of nato's financial burden stolzenberg said trump's words are having an effect of the years or reducing defense budgets all of us have stopped the cuts and all our allies have increased defense spending before they were cutting billions nodder adding billions . stoltenberg also warned of the threat posed by an increasingly a sort of russia including a military buildup in eastern europe. nato house no intention of deploying
3:15 pm
land based nuclear research in europe but nato will always take the necessary steps to provide credible and affective the terrorists. echoes of the cold war even as nato moves to confront a growing number of twenty first century threats. on g.w. as terry scholtz is covering that story for us and she joins us now from brussels so terry we just heard quite a lot of applause there for the nato secretary general speech to congress so how does that contributed to the mood for today's meeting and commemorations. i think that this first groundbreaking speech by a nato secretary general to both houses of congress probably set the meeting on a really confident and buoyant mood it was the best speech i've ever seen young stolzenberg given i've seen plenty of those he was extremely dynamic he was human
3:16 pm
he was emotional and of course he was in a friendly crowd everyone knows that congress is very much a supporter of nato a counterbalance to the trump white house which says disparaging things at least by tweet about nato so he was very comfortable and that will lead the twenty nine allies into a meeting and in a very good mood today this is something that it's really necessary because a big part of diplomacy is simply the on the aunts that they can create around the alliance and being in in washington of course they're on you know perhaps walking on eggshells sometimes around the trump white house which i might point out was deliberately not part of today the main day of the celebrations exactly so that president trump can't sort of. manufacture these arguments about transatlantic funding differences that have so often taken over meetings of nato all right terry trump is not going to be there we do have this good news that was sparked by the
3:17 pm
speech that was so well received in congress but is this now going to be a substantial meeting or is it really going to be more about the pomp and circumstance of the nato seventieth anniversary. you know we will hear from him stolzenberg later so we'll see if he comes out with any deliverables as they like to say at nato from these two meetings of the twenty nine foreign ministers plus north macedonia which has been invited as the next member of nato also to do it in these meetings and as he went into to kick off the day still timberg was asked questions by journalists about what he expected from the day he mentioned sort of the agenda items they will be talking about burden sharing which is the euphemism that nato uses to talk about how much the u.s. pays and how little the europeans pay they'll talk about that they will talk about counterterrorism measures nato has been pushed into doing more on counterterrorism by the united states of course the very long eighteen year war in afghanistan is
3:18 pm
considered a very major contributor against terrorism and they'll be talking about peace about for the prospects for the peace talks that are going on there now secretary of state might come pay will update them on that that we're talking about a new mission they have in iraq again considered counter terrorism there and they will of course talk about russia and new measures that will be taken to to sure hopeful members georgia and ukraine they will talk about russia's continuing occupation of crimea and they will also be talking about china and the new threats that could be posed by china's economic dominance including here in europe well terry it is a challenging time for nato i mean there are enormous divisions that are visible among the member states what do you think they'll want to be celebrating today seventy years on. well to still be standing at seventy years old is something of an accomplishment i think about it when nato was set up it was to be
3:19 pm
a counterbalance to the kremlin it was it was to help guard against the spread of communism to europe to help rebuild germany to make sure germany never again became a military threat to europe and if you look at where we are now in one nine hundred ninety one the soviet union disintegrated in and with it went the warsaw pact the eastern nations sort of version of nato and now most of those countries are members of the western alliance so simply the fact that nato exists and took in all of these former soviet satellites of course is a big accomplishment in itself when when nato looks to the future as it continues to expand it's going to be more difficult to gain consensus and so i think that that's what their focus is going to be on going forward coming out looking united as they continue to expand to thirty members with north macedonia this year w's teri schultz in brussels we think you for your reporting now last september a member of the russian activist group post the riot was rushed to
3:20 pm
