after you're going to klinsmann shocked departure. hello and welcome to the program on next vice foreign ministers from major world powers met in munich to push for peace in libya germany in the united nations want to end foreign military support for libya's warring parties an agreement struck last month in berlin has been repeatedly violated with multiple breaches of an arms embargo and increased fighting now representatives at the meeting are pushing for a permanent ceasefire german foreign minister heiko abbas laid out a key next step following the meeting. what's important now is to establish transparency and ensure that anyone who intends to violate the arms embargo knows they won't escape unnoticed and the fun of. it should be clear to
2:02 pm
all breaking this embargo means violating a un resolution which will not be without consequences the. country and let's bring indeed a new political correspondent and simon young in munich simon. the german foreign minister was talking about consequences should anyone break this embargo what does he mean by that. well i think he primarily means that there is going to be more focus on this from the international community this meeting today of foreign ministers from the region has produced a pretty blandly worded statement i would say in which they describe the situation on the ground in libya is deeply troubling and deplored the violations of the arms embargo but what's been announced essentially that e.u. foreign ministers will meet to discuss libya as a top priority tomorrow monday and they'll be more talks under the
2:03 pm
umbrella of the un in geneva probably featuring representatives of both the warring factions in libya within the next 10 days or so so it's more talks about talks really in terms of what consequences could be achieved well the e.u. wants to get together and do more monitoring of the arms embargo and of course they might even get to the situation of reinstating the maritime controls in the mediterranean which at the moment are not really happening. sam you talk about talks about talks and i think i can answer this question how significant were the discussions on libya today did they amount to much. yeah i mean as i say i think it's it's important that when you've got these are top level officials here in munich for the security conference they come together and take the opportunity to
2:04 pm
issue some kind of statement show that the international community ease on this but in terms of a breakthrough i don't think we've seen that the u.n. deputy envoy on libya said that the troops in libya he's hanging by a thread in the embargoes are jokes and he's words were much more strong than those that were in this statement agreed by the foreign ministers. ok libya of course is not the reason why all the ministers came to attend the munich security conference in that meeting some big splits were on display over the leadership of the western world and the transatlantic relationship let's take a closer look. if you can from the opening moments of this year's conference the tensions between europe and the us were front and center. doing stuff of been the to our closest ally the united states of america under the current administration rejects the idea of an international community and ups. great again
2:05 pm
great again if necessary also at the expense of neighbors and. that was a preview of starkly different visions of the european u.s. alliance depending on who you ask it's either on life support or in good health. and happy to report that the death of the transatlantic alliance is grossly over exaggerated french president emmanuel mccraw insisted that europe must become more independent of the us. soon there will 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. german foreign minister heiko tried to reconcile the 2 sides. we ended a future we will have to do more for our security but i think it would be a mistake to pit europe against the us. we're in a security alliance together that works nato but it needs reform and we're
2:06 pm
discussing that now while westerners argued over whether their influence is on the decline russia's foreign minister sergey lavrov had a different concern. this is through before our eyes the system of agreements in the field of strategic stability and nonproliferation is being destroyed the threshold for using nuclear weapons is being lowered to regional crises are multiplying. outside the venue thousands of protesters were a steady presence many of them environmental activists who said the conference downplays climate change as a security issue. back inside the big speeches overshadowed multiple meetings on the sidelines all addressing major challenges that aren't going away anytime soon. and i think you could hear that you've covered a few of these conferences quite a few what do you think people will remember this one for. well i think you saw it there is this battle really between in particular the united states and the
2:07 pm
european representatives over what the west is all about what it really means what state it seen and we heard the german president frank morris saying of the world we're moving further a further away from peace every year and he's very worried about the future of the west the americans in the form of might pompei or the secretary of state coming back saying no the west is winning. pushing his ideas for a more independent europe and we heard this morning again from your sit by the e.u. high representative on foreign policy saying europe has to learn to speak the language of power but the question is what will be backing up that power is there really any military base behind those words they've got pass go is a lot of cooperation mechanism but it really remains to be seen whether
2:08 pm
europe wants to go forward and become an independent force in terms of defense and strategic policy given all the threats china russia and and many others have been mentioned here the other thing i think important agreement on the sidelines of this conference. on afghan peace and a movement towards peace the peace deal the americans have got an agreement of sorts anyway with the taliban and the afghan government in the form of the afghan president ghani. giving modish star support i should say to that and says that he'll be pushing that in the coming weeks so there have actually been some some significant developments here in munich this year. thanks for that. time now to take a look at some of the other stories around the world. more than 30 civilians have been killed in saudi led airstrikes in the yemen it's talks of fear to be retaliation for the downing of one of riyadh's warplanes who the rebels said they
