a thesis put forward the day before by german president flying father steinmeyer winning that the united states rejects the international community and a quote. here this morning to tell you the facts i'm happy to report that the death of the transatlantic alliance is grossly over exaggerated that may be but the morning's other main speaker was not so sure french president emmanuel mccaw said europe must become more independent of the us soon but if we have no freedom to act then we have no credibility in foreign policy and we can't be a junior partner to the united states of america. macor also disagreed over one of the main themes of this year's conference that the west is losing global influence . when i look at the world as it's being shaped and that's the theme of your conference this year there is indeed a weakening of the west looks you don't this idea of west was listed as the core
12:03 am
theme for this year's conference and i'm sure to there are many of you who would call yourself a realist but let me give you an idea of what's real the west is winning a policy that goes on 15 years ago we thought that our values were universal that we were going to dominate the world in the long term that we were dominant in terms of technology military and so on and then i look at the horizon of 10 to 15 years we are going to be increasingly pushed by other agendas another values it is a myth of the free west has a far brighter future than illiberal alternatives or winning or doing it together. it was left to nato secretary-general un starting back to try and smooth over the continuing transatlantic tensions europe and north america are indispensable partners to sawicki of the same korean so when we stand together we can compete with confidence protect our interests the friend values thank you

if. teri schultz has been covering the conference force in munich well as to how she viewed pompei as comments on the state of the transatlantic alliance think the thing that struck me the most was how different this pompei of speech was from those we've seen in brussels or the comments the president makes about the european union you know normally they're all about america 1st america leaving and in this case as you heard secretary pump a.o. said we're a team and we are winning we're doing it together we're winning collectively and this is something i haven't heard from secretary pump aoe before so it was very interesting to get the sense that he in a way is trying to talk the europeans back into wanting to be transatlantic partners after the administration has done so much to turn them away. and as well as terry should stay doubly also caught up with german foreign minister in munich
12:05 am
he said the crimes comments could prompt europe to take a critical look at its role within the transatlantic alliance as a vivid and we would step the invitation to this strategic dialogue we believe that we 1st need to decide within europe how to meet the increased demands in the future we will have to do more for our security but i think it would be a mistake to put europe against the us. as it were in its security alliance that works nato but it needs reform and we're discussing that now we want to bolster the european side of nato and to do that we 1st need to reach consensus in europe but dialogue that the manuel mccrone has proposed can play a significant role in this that's why we will take part. in the. u.s. defense. has said that a truce agreement between the us and the taliban looks promising but is not without risks he also said it could lead to a reduction of u.s.

12:10 am
