a new coach alexander stepping up to take the reins against. klinsmann's shock departure. hello and welcome. foreign ministers from major world powers met in munich so push for peace in libya germany and 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 cease fire german foreign minister 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. it should be clear to breaking this embargo means violating a un resolution which will not be without consequences. and let's bring in d.w. political correspondent. what i think he primarily means that there's going to be more focus on this from the international community you have this meeting today of foreign ministers from the region and 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 umbrella of the u.n. in geneva probably featuring representatives of both the warring factions in libya
3:03 pm
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. so i mean you talk about talks about talks so i think i can almost 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 a top level officials here in munich for the security conference they come together and take the opportunity to 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 treaty in libya he's hanging by a thread in the embargoes or jokes are his words were much more strong than those that were in this statement agreed by the foreign ministers ok and libya of course is not the reason why all the ministers came to attend the munich security conference in that meeting big splits were on display over the leadership of the western world and the transatlantic relationship let's take a closer look. from the opening moments of this year's conference the tensions between europe and the u.s. were front and center and saying stuff abandoned to our closest ally the united states of america under the current administration rejects the idea of an international community and. great again great again if necessary also at the expense of maybe. 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 transom. is grossly over exaggerated french president emanuel 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 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 discussing that now while westerners argued over whether their influence is on the decline russia's foreign minister sergey lavrov had
3:06 pm
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 where a study presents 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. ok some of the things 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 european representatives over what the west is all about what it really means what
3:07 pm
state it seen and we heard the german president frank. saying of the world we're moving further and further and further away from peace every year and he's very worried about the future of the west the americans in the form of my 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 indeed this morning again from your sit barrel of 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 that got passed go is sort of cooperation mechanism but it really remains to be seen whether europe wants to go forward and become an independent force in terms of defense and strategic policy given all the threats china russia 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 garni ease giving modish star support i should say to that and says that he'll be pursuing that in the coming weeks so there have actually been some significant developments here in munich this year. thanks for that. take a look at some of the other stories making news around the world. more than 30 civilians have been killed in. yemen. to be retaliation for the. airplanes. they brought down the aircraft the incident amid intensifying fighting between the rebels and forces of the.
