3:02 pm
a public park last august a suspect named only as a volunteer has been taken into custody russia denies any involvement and says it proved retaliate against the expulsions. this me during our correspondence maximiliano in front of the russian embassy here in berlin and from our moscow bureau we have our correspondent emily shipman welcome to both of you now let me start with you max what reason has been given for expelling the diplomats yes earlier today the german foreign minister here in berlin has given out a statement saying that they declared 2 russian diplomats persona non-grata effectively expelling them from germany and from the services here at the russian embassy in berlin so far we don't know watch role capacity those russian diplomats had here in berlin the embassy right behind me but there are snout to leave the
3:03 pm
country and the reason the german forces more foreign ministry has been giving was that the german the russian embassy here in berlin was not helping in the investigation of the killing of the cheney and earlier this year here in germany and that they therefore considered these actions a little moscow what's the reaction being from the kremlin bullen's decision to expel 2 russian diplomats from here. well the kremlin has repeatedly denied any russian involvement in this murder and then after the expulsion of those 2 diplomats and we had a brief response from the russian foreign ministry they called the accusations founded and they also said that the expulsion was unfounded and unfriendly germany of leading this investigation in a politicized way is a rather strong accusations there and they said that they would respond with reciprocal measures so they certainly feels like
3:04 pm
a growing scandal. max in blood and what more do we know a lot the victim has what is the alleged perpetrator of this killing. so we know so far is that the victim was of to change in a region but had held the georgian citizenship and he was known to have fought in the 2nd cheney and war in the early 2000 and then went on to live in the ukraine and in georgia and held jobs that were considered anti russian and off to the killing this year in orcus w. spoke to his wife because they then had fled here to germany and so. seek asylum here in germany and his wife said that they in her own words as she said they knew this would be happening or they knew that this would be coming as he was then his asylum here in germany was then refused he was slated to be brought back to georgia
3:05 pm
. and emily like kelly russia completely denies any involvement in this killing and it's quite angry about burdens expulsion of 2 russian diplomats work for the action can we expect from a russian officials. well of course we don't know yet at this point they've just said reciprocal measures but russia usually in cases like this as the strategy of risks of responding with a kind of tit for tat response in diplomatic spots like this as well and also in a similar case which for example which was the script poisoning in 2018 that of course was an attempted murder but the case also there was there were accusations from the u.k. government against russia for its involvement alleged involvement in that case and in that case as well the u.k. expelled diplomats russia responded in kind we'll have to wait and see though because of course german russian relations are much much closer and i think what
3:06 pm
we're seeing here is both sides kind of treading carefully russian german relations are economically close and diplomatically close as well even though there are some political differences so we'll have to wait and see what the response will be and i last from a little perspective how do you see this incident affecting relations between germany and russia. the germany has always walked a target here when it came to russian relations as emery has said german relations to russia have always been rather close but at the same time they have been becoming more fractures over the last couple of years so for example in 2014 after the annexation of crimea germany has been leading these sanctions against russia and it has also said that the same time trying to then bring forward both the policies of russia and the ukraine when it came to trying to find the minsk agreements that germany has always been on the one hand very have been very trying
3:07 pm
to founding in the explanation why they decided to expel those 2 russian diplomats and i guess we're going to see further diplomatic talks about this matter. not seen 1000000 akashic outside the russian embassy in berlin and d.-w. correspondent emily show when in moscow thank you both very much. let me now being with some other stories making news around the bond iran's president hassan rouhani has called for the release of innocent people arrested in the last month the inspiration's broke out across the country after the government raised petrol prices said protesters who used weapons should be dealt with by the law. a well known japanese doctor has been killed in an attack in afghanistan tetsu nakamura devoted his entire life to helping the people of afghanistan he was killed along with 5 others when gunmen attacked his vehicle in the city of jalalabad in
3:08 pm
october have dr nakamura was awarded honorary citizenship of gotta stand up. google's founders larry page and sergey brin are stepping down as heads of the internet giants parent company alphabet the prairie replaced by current google chief reach i google is facing growing criticism in europe and the u.s. over its privacy policies. need to leaders have started and clim clude it talks on the 2nd day of a meeting to mark the 70th anniversary of the military alliance only the divisions within the organization were exposed over a number of issues just a short while ago alliance members adopted a joint statement that sought to leave fears of disunity it said the alliance had to look to the future together it also acknowledged the challenges posed by china's growing economic and military strength day one of the gathering so friction as did
3:09 pm
the differences. between the u.s. and france over the alliance's strategic goal. a 2nd regional yen stoltenberg said members have recommitted the alliance and score defense roles and have also agreed to said defense spending more evenly have a list of all the there's we're very clear we stand together all for $1.00 and $1.00 for all our commitment to article 5 the collective defense clause or our alliance is our unplanned allies further recognized the unprecedented progress we are making to achieve very burden sharing this is the thief the year of rising defense investment in fact european allies and canada that $138000000000.00 us dollars and by the end though $10.00 to
3:10 pm
$24.00 that figure rise to $400000000000.00 us dollars this is unprecedented. so that is nato secretary-general yens tonton macoutes that we now joined because fun and need to exploit teri schultz who is in london kerry here is staunton the nato secretary general says the alliance will increase its military spending but then he went on to reaffirm article 5 of that's at the heart of the need to alliance why did he feel the need to do this. article 5 has come under question from president trump who has in an unprecedented way brought up the suggestion that perhaps those allies who are not paying 2 percent of their g.d.p. into their military may not warrant protection if they should feel a threat that would rise to the level of an article 5 declaration that of course is something that is not well seen within within the alliance that is the cornerstone
3:11 pm
of nato that every country can rely on each other and so that is probably why secretary general stoltenberg thought he needed to tie those 2 things together in his statement allies are increasing their military spending some at the behest of president trump and therefore he is seeking to to make the case that everyone deserves protection let's talk to him but also said nato leaders have their 1st of a discussion on china's rise and the challenges it presents tell us more. that's right nato allies have never together discussed what challenges and opportunities the relationship with china may present and so a couple of months ago nato planners were tasked with bringing together all the aspects of the chinese relationship for nato and nato very much wants to portray china as a potential partner not an enemy in fact in this joint statement they adopted only
3:12 pm
russia is listed by name as a potential enemy and so they say that there are both good things and challenging things in the chinese relationship like 5 g. like using wall way for their technology and that's something that they want to get ahead of now before china becomes a problem. well the elephant in the room need to meetings as often and they were diverging views ahead of this meeting on to a couple of issues what more was said about that in the communique or all of the statement secretary general stoltenberg pointed out that turkey has taken some decisions that are difficult for the alliance like purchasing a russian made missile defense component that can never be put into sync with nato zone missile defense system that's something that has been extremely troubling for the alliance because you have russian experts on turkish territory very close to nato installations so that's
3:13 pm
a problem that is ongoing and will be exacerbated with further purchases the other problem leading into this meeting was that turkey was demanding all allies recognized kurdish groups as terrorist organizations some of those groups are allies of the united states for example so that's not going to happen and that's something that was not settled at this meeting. so after all the big ring in the jobs of brain dead dylan clinton so on did the 25 nato members end up with a convincing show of unity after their meeting. it was reassuring for nato that none of the leaders and read that president trump put up any red flags on the joint statement that had been teed up for them to endorse today so that is a sign of unity and in fact mr inside the meeting according to stoltenberg was very good and productive despite all of these sniping that we saw in the days and weeks ahead of the meeting we there has been a bit of a. sort of titillating aspect to this there was
3:14 pm
a video seen of some of the leaders just. boris johnson making fun of president trump and this was audible from the reception last night and president trump today called justin trudeau to face to so this kind of sort of a tit for tat is not over it's par for the course as they would say terry shows did obvious correspondent and new to expert thank you very much for all your reporting on the nato leaders meeting in london you're watching the news coming up ahead zebras under threat the population now want the largest species of the animal has plummeted by 83 percent in 50 years we'll find out why. but for the largest ethnic minority the sinti and roma have faced centuries of discrimination and remain marginalized today no e.u.
