5:34 pm

5:35 pm
and canada 30 countries all together who are of the same line and let's talk a bit about the trainee's condescension of the e.u. last december greed in principle to an investment agreement the comprehensive agreement on investment or c.i. with china this is still to be ratified by the european parliament of which you are a member do you think this agreement will now be ratified. well there have been discussions about that before and. of course these cities questions will be become stronger in the house although i would say for you personally i would not make my personal sensitivities a base for my political attitude towards this agreement in principle it is something that would broaden the market access for our enterprises and reduce a bit defacto discriminations that our interests have been exposed on the chinese
5:36 pm
market in comparison to their printers access to our markets so far that is in principle something that is more in our interest but speaking of that interest you have members of the european parliament or to your serve who have been sanctioned by trying you actually believe there could be a possibility that the orpen parliament numberless about to find the c.i. i would have speculated at this stage we have $200.00 to $3.00 of discussion how to react now to 'd. finally find a solution it is definitely. not not a way here to at this stage to to make a definitive. recommendation in this regard you talked about european market access now that is an environment where china is the largest trading partner of the e.u. talk to us a bit about the use relations with china so you have on the one hand the cia rich
5:37 pm
you do not want to discuss in detail on the other hand the e.u. sanctions china what is it you foreign policy toward china. but our foreign policy would perhaps describe it as an try at its. cooperate or possible compete where needed and control and when necessary i would say that is the. framework in which we are acting and accordingly we have to see it each and every respect what suits us best and when it's necessary to cooperate for instance on the climate agenda globally yes when it's in the framework of the w g o where we have to get the w t o standards for the applied also in china then we need to talk with them of course but when it's about it's a set of policies also to to its own neighborhood in the south east of asia i think
5:38 pm
it's good to strengthen them in these countries we have corporation with. south korea we have a free trade agreement with vietnam with singapore. and. and in so far we are also strengthening these contacts in order to give these countries a better understanding and also the i would hope that the us and countries would further integrate economically and politically if possible and what does this mean for the transatlantic relationship given that the united states who can come over imports cornett of functions on trying to flood the euro. well i would say that we are in a situation where we should definitely coordinate our policies in my well that's not all the current but i would definitely wish that we would come at some point
5:39 pm
with the u.s. to teach it $2.00 so to say a free trade agreement with the u.s. and we have got one with canada with japan i think that is there would be the best framework to have that have to standing towards this china. horse present or going thank you so much for joining us. the coronavirus pandemic has spiked demand for frontline medical workers to an all time high western countries especially are looking to boost their supply of nurses some now even offer extra job perks to win over candidates one southern state in india seems to produce a large share of medical personnel who work abroad the double travels to kettler to meet some nurses before they take off. to the. un general grew up in and out of hospital. as a severely anemic child. she was often admitted for treatment. but that

specially you know that fiction has taught me is how to kind of create characters that feel physical that feel human you know when i write a song i know that i'm talking about you know my friend know somebody that i've met but how do i portray them in a light that makes the listener feel like they can see themselves in that character but it's not just the characters the songs or the artist herself. just because somebody is black doesn't necessarily mean that that all is inherently political or should inherently only revolve around that facet of their identity and just kind of celebrating that the strength and the joy that surrounds people and i think about something that i wanted to you know celebrating that sense of joy in and i think empowerment comes from many different ways it comes from you know
