11:03 pm
interfering in china's internal affairs. a confident country is able to look hard at its own shortcomings. on the issue of human rights. we think we not just states can do better. it's the opportunity for us to explain where we are coming from here where you are coming from when there is a make around as a tax on accusations that is not hospitality not. also on the time in miles minute show authorities continue their crackdown against anti protesters journalists are also in the firing line but they haven't yet been silenced. you know one of the local media outlets have stopped publication for now but the impression that i get that people aren't here reporters are just continue reporting. welcome to the day u.s.
11:04 pm
and chinese diplomats have clashed of their 1st meeting since president biden took office for. the face talks in alaska got off to an icy stuff with each side attacking the other among the issues with human rights the coronavirus pandemic in china's military buildup in the south china sea the u.s. accuses china of threatening global stability china accuses the us of hypocrisy. and it's supposed to be a traditional photo op between 2 economic and military superpowers but instead a backroom brawl exploded on to the world stage as both sides launched a scathing indictments also discuss our deep concerns with actions by china including and she's wrong hong kong taiwan cyber attacks on the united states economic coercion toward our allies each of these actions threaten the rules based order that maintains what will stability that's why they're not merely internal
11:05 pm
matters and why we feel an obligation to raise these issues here today chinese communist party foreign affairs chief yang a chief fired back by questioning america's status as a leader. so we hope that when talking about universal values or international public opinion on the part of the united states we hope the u.s. side will think about whether it feels reassured saying these things because the u.s. does not represent the world it only represents the government of the united states with. the u.s. secretary of state reasserted america's leadership role i have to tell you what i'm hearing is very different from what you describe. i'm hearing deep satisfaction that the united states is back there were reengage with our allies and partners i'm also hearing deep concern about some of the actions your government is taking but with the mutually agreed to pull magic protocol scrafton china's foreign affairs
11:06 pm
chief deflected criticism of its own human rights record by pointing back at the u.s. world. in regard to human rights let me show you what we hope the u.s. can do a little better in this aspect. only with us as human rights issues are deeply rooted it didn't just exist during the past 10 years slaughter of african-americans has always been a problem. so if you think those who went. with a chilly start to the new normal for relations between china and the u.s. the rest of the world is watching closely to understand where they fit in in this new balance between global powers. let's say farai gomez can help us to understand he's director of defense policy studies at the cato institute that's a libertarian think tank in washington welcome to d.w. at the can we start with this opening which was publicly night showed
11:07 pm
what is achieved by either side by starting such a way. well i think both sides really previewed this right i don't think this is coming as a surprise to anyone in beijing or in washington that the relationship is getting off to a very rocky start. it wasn't a very good place when the trump administration ended this is both due to what a lot of things that china has done but also u.s. perceptions of it and the united states is all in on a come petted of strategy with china and biden has said so as much very many times so far in his presidency so i think this is just going to be the opening round of a new normal in the u.s. trying to relationship that unfortunately will probably get worse before it gets better so to see if that was taking us anywhere you are might say ok fair enough but is there any evidence that recent u.s.
11:08 pm
actions against china trade wars diplomatic expulsions even the name calling of a covert has any of this had any effect on chinese policy. i haven't seen any i don't think that the u.s. approach has yet to witness any kind of change you know when they talk about issues in hong kong and changing for example understandably the u.s. is very upset about those things and they are grave violations of human rights and and i think i would also agree and the qualification of it as a genocide but when it comes to stopping china from doing the things it's doing i'm not sure how much coercive leverage the u.s. actually has to do that and maybe it's a matter of you know we put on the leverage now and wait a bit and see what happens but like we saw in alaska it doesn't seem to be producing anything except for hostility but there's also a question of well if that's if that's what's happening do not see what kind of
11:09 pm
engagement strategy or some other approach might work and at least in the united states i don't think there's much political appetite internally for any kind of bigger change in u.s. china policy that is less confrontational i think the confrontation is with us over time. but it remains that after round the sort of the background noise to what else is going on around the world except that it's we need the united states and china to work together if we ought to conquer some of the world's biggest problems like climate change so can the u.s. and china compete and cooperate at the same time i think so and you know i think in the cold war and and the that reference always makes people little nervous right because things got pretty bad between the u.s. and soviet union and a lot of people around the world during the cold war but. it shows that you can
11:10 pm
have because the u.s. and soviet union were able to work together on some things and i think that if we want to start figuring out where those areas of overlap are and where the areas of positive some cooperation are the 1st step is going to have to be putting some kind of floor on the downgrade of relations and i think that in the u.s. soviet case that was a nuclear arms control i'm hopeful that the biden administration will be able to engage china on nuclear issues as well because i think that despite the trunk administration's failure in that regard there might be some space for the u.s. and china to improve their nuclear relationship and create those kind of guardrails to the competition the other area is no terry confidence building measures as the united states is thinking about this competition and thinking about an increased military presence in east asia the likelihood of some kind of incident spiraling out of control i think necessarily increases because the u.s. is just going to be more active and so in that situation you want to be able to
11:11 pm
have very clear lines of communication open to the other side to make sure that you can you know do things without spiraling out of control so i think those should be the some of the areas where the in might bite into mr asian moves to put that floor and prevent the relationship from souring even further and the backgrounds of us of course is that america sees that china expanding its power and its influence in all sorts of directions all over the world and what one does now if china on the front foot economically militarily even technologically it's china is rising i mean for 6 percent economic growth the way the west is still struggling with that sort of post kovan told. yeah i totally agree and i think that when it comes to figuring out. just how did how to live with this right that not everything that china does abroad in terms of its economic presence in terms of its military
11:12 pm
presence is going to be a threat to the united states and i i think that for many years the perception was cooperation is really good and now it kind of stuff pendulum has swung to the other way which is cooperation is terrible and we need to compete and i think the truth is somewhere in the middle right i think that in some aspects the u.s. china relationship should become a bit more competitive but on a vast majority of things we have to take a deeper stock of what is it that china's doing that's actually a problem to the united states and then what can we do about it i think right now there's a tendency to overinflate just how many problems there are and i worry that the u.s. is going to try and overreact too harshly and we're not going to be able to actually do the things that we want and it's going to make everything worse so i would hope that the biden ministration thinks about that right things about what is it specifically that is the problem and where are the areas that aren't and we can
11:13 pm
actually you know it or not care about it or we can work with china to solve common issues thank you for that and to go miss from the cato institute thank you. i mean mass military coups and subsequent crackdown have affected protesters and the country's media as the general seek to control not just the protests but also information who would interview on the general survive the licenses of at least 5 local news outlets more than 30 journalists have been taken into custody sometimes under the threat of death this is one of them a k. zone now members of the foreign press have been targeted as well this is. a photographer for the associated press is believe that many jailed journalists are awaiting trial at the insane prison a facility notorious for human rights abuses they could be jailed for up to 3 years
11:14 pm
charge of spreading false information so let's take a closer look at what these journalists are facing they try to give us in the outside world a fuller picture of what's going on inside me. these police offices in yangon charging after anti military demonstrators and a journalist tanking photos of little several police around ten's or as he tries to get away one puts him in a china cold he's then handcuffed and dragged off this happened in late february 10 zorse pictures were to be sent to his employer the global news agency a.p. outlets like a t w then by this material so journalists like him are critical for international media to be able to report on the young man instead tens or is now behind bars he and a growing number of journalists and media workers in myanmar facing up to 3 years in jail and vague charges of violating
11:15 pm
a public order law. or wristed while he was performing his work according to the video recording and pictures published in the new. he was arrested while doing his job this is not related at all to the public order law he has been charged with but that's what they are accusing him of that the end of the aisle is why. it's estimated that over 200 people have been killed in myanmar in a brutal crackdown on largely peaceful protests since the military's take over on february the 1st getting information is becoming trickier to the military regularly shuts the internet down and it's blocked some social media sites it's also withdrawn the licenses of 5 major media outlets no one is safe and the military government especially these days you know at the nighttime
11:16 pm
the reagan reading no media. and media buzz and that's where one of my daughters got rate at that time at his house i'm already there we. are and you've been as me there will be no no more press freedom. a decade after the end of the one to in myanmar the military is back in charge it's a major setback for press freedom and for journalists on the ground it means facing censorship threats and intimidation once again when you take a close look at the dangers these journalists are facing with the values editor in chief and head of publications a reporters without borders and welcome to day w there are reports of of reporters being dragged away by unidentified men are there any that you're particularly concerned about. good evening and thank you for welcoming ass and giving me the opportunity to talk about the situation in the
11:17 pm
country we are concerned with the news of the indeed of these 2 reporters b.b.c. world and the local media meets that where her esteemed the sefton and i are still missing. we called on the utilities the sefton to reveal their whereabouts and to stop the security at least it's an increasing of the attacks on julian east after having been beaten they have been arrested and no they are disappearing so the situation is really deteriorating and it's extremely worrying and it's possible to the journalists all the media and who are being detained nationality the tone of their reporting for instance. not really and we've seen an increase of the number of journalists to being detained there are arrested it's important to recall the facts as for us today since the 1st of generic february the beginning of the crew
11:18 pm
that was in 6 weeks 39 june at least have been arrested 17 are still detained today 22 were freed and many of them are working either for international to vacation or local media have been arris to or in difficult situation so our main concern today is really to. see that the new media carry genter the new military dictatorship we resort the same terrible methods that they have used to. getting journalists in the past from the 1967 to 2011 and of course. they all journalist are concerns and the situation is more and more difficult on the ground as you're intimating we have this isn't me a mosque 1st military coup and once it happened in february we pretty much knew
11:19 pm
what to expect a crackdown on process than dissent crackdowns on the media i'm not so harassed so give a vast well why did so many reporters choose to continue to report and to take their chances. it is true they face than ship it the desire to cover what's happening right now is even though exposing a dilemma for many jonah tista one of them was telling us a few weeks ago that they need to cover this story called moment even though it's always a great deal of fear they want to continue to cover the news as it happens because it's so important to provide reader reporting from the future for the future generation and for the world to know they see a real need to provide information in what's happening and to complete the case of the 2 wretches journeys to where detain. until 2 years ago for more than $5500.00 days in myanmar for korea covering the
11:20 pm
taboo issue there are over there has also drawn more attention on the situation over there and probably that unit east feel very concerned to i lead the world i live the public opinion on what's happening on the field but given that the country's in such a terrible mess and samus loss of democracy we're seeing detentions without trial of a spurious reasons on deaths on the streets why does it matter that a few reporters have been arrested. for reporters without borders anywhere between you and man as well it's very crucial that reporters should be able to cover the dramatic moment ing and massy story the generals who to her were 6 weeks ago to realize that the world these looking at them and it's very important that to mideast continue to report so that the will notice that some people and
11:21 pm
dozens of people are being killed but also generally stop being beaten and prevented to do their jobs on the ground thank you for joining us some point in that i don't invent from reporters without borders. journalist dissidents and lawyers often rely on private communications to do their work and stay safe now a series of police operations targeting so-called crypt to foad systems just got civil liberties defenders worried well police say they've shut down major drug dealing networks across europe some lawyers say the surveillance operations are eroding our right to privacy doubly reported joel dole right here to explain oh well joe 1st off let's start with the basics what's a crypt a food a crypto phone looks like a regular handset but it's been modified to run a hidden operating system that connects through an encrypted communication network now you access the hidden operating system by pushing
11:22 pm
a series of buttons or entering a pos code into the calculator and then you can send encrypted messages across the network well one such crypt of our network was called skype e.c.c. and it calls itself the most secure messaging platform of vailable it even offered a 1000000 euro reward to anyone who could hack the system well somebody did just a few weeks ago dutch and belgium police announce that they have managed to hack into the sky system and have been monitoring messages which they say contained communications about major drug deals and even murder plots and as a result the belgian police have launched in recent weeks the biggest operation that they've ever run resulting in many arrests and shutting down major drug me works they claim i'm guessing they didn't claim the the reward but this wasn't the 1st group the phone network that police have breached was it now an earlier one was called encourage chat which was operated in a similar way it was an encrypted phone network it cost around 1000 euros for
11:23 pm
a handset and it had around 60000 euros raw users right across europe up until june last year when encouraged that sent out a panicked message to its users saying destroy all funds because french police had managed to hack into the server. and implant malware on the devices and have been monitoring messages and as a result they have been carrying out a series of raids right across europe in the netherlands for example they say that they found a drug operation complete with a torture chamber inside a shipping container in the u.k. they've been more than a thousands of arrests here in germany also a wave of arrests where drugs have been seized weapons have been seized and many people have been arrested and police say that this is going to keep going because they get to keep working through that mountain of messages that they have found and accessed by hacking into these encrypted phones but this still sounds like splendid news that the police are catching the bad guys so isn't that a good thing well there's nothing wrong or illegal about using encrypted
11:24 pm
communication in fact you probably do it every day if you used what's app for example what's out has end to end encryption and defense lawyers say that the way that these particular crypto started raids were carried out breaches the normal protocols and rules the police have to abide by while they're collecting evidence and they say that they are writing our right to privacy at the same time well i spoke to one defense lawyer whose name is all rick so much and he says he's representing people who are arrested in these raids and he says that all of our rights are private communication are at risk. no one criticised the police when they went off to encroach out then they continued with sky yesterday was today was sky tomorrow it's what's up is what and after that it's the whole phone network i'm really appalled about the impact on society and how the whole media has ignored the threat to freedom created by these cases. instead celebrating the police success. this needs to change or it won't just be another
11:25 pm
scandal we may be writing off another part of our fundamental rights. well rick some also points out the dissidents rely on private communications when they're trying to evade all thora tarion regimes and that's not just a hypothetical for example there are numerous cases of high profile human rights activists from pakistan who have been tracked down and killed in exile in sweden and in canada as well the exiles from chechnya who have been traced and killed right across europe including here in bolin and in the belgian raids a several of the people who've been picked up a lawyer who say that they were using crip their phones to communicate privately with their clients which they are entitled to do so while these crypto phone raids have got drug dealers running scared they've also got people worried who are worried about civil liberties. or thank you.
11:26 pm
on the pandemic means zoos around the world have been closed to visit with no humans around apparently some animals the stuff to get bored so zookeepers in the czech republic of come up with a novel way of end to tell you back chimpanzees. things were getting a bit slow for the local chimpanzees at the safari park. in the north of the czech republic. staff set up online streaming service with another zoo located in about 170 kilometers away. a project that was created here is one of the elements of how to extend enrichment for these animals to offer them a greater source of entertainment and keep them occupied.
11:27 pm
large screens were set up at both gardens of the chimps at the 2 locations. and connecting the 2 groups of chimpanzees now both groups spend a lot of time watching each other see. the telling about they started watching it just like we watch t.v. or when we were in the cinema even with the same behavior with the details they sit in front of the screen take some goodies nuts or something like that they sit down and really watch it like people at the movies the similarity there is obvious. streaming service might not make up for the lack of crowds but at least it keeps the primates out of monkey business. to. rule the ads alike while the day it's almost done the conversation continues online into twitter i'm hoping for. get
