selves as a founding member of the council of europe. let's get more from d.w. correspondent dorian jones in istanbul welcome dorian let's start with that press conference we just heard to us from the from the line speaking of what else did we hear. well it does appear that while there's a striping is cautious optimism there was a large part of the press conference was devoted to human rights concerns to importance of the rule of law stressing that these are important principles for the european union but beyond that we also heard about how they mapped out key demands of turkey been looking for an indication the e.u. does appear to be ready to accommodate some of them talked about that they both sides agree to work towards a modernizing of a customs union agreement between turkey new european union this is something turkey's been looking for for many years and in fact in the past has been held up because of human rights concerns it seems now that they are ready to enter into
5:04 pm
into dialogue they also talked about to the importance of person to person the stressing of the importance of this harassment project the student exchange but also turkey will be seen that is a positive sign to its much bigger. visa liberalization for all of its citizens another important concession. on the line did underlined these human rights concerns could possible hamper the progress of these concessions but she doesn't say they will stop them so that will also be seen as something important from and also she talked at length about the importance of this migration deal between turkey and the european union this it makes turkey the gate keeper for migrants and refugees into europe europe is your opinion a very keen that i continue and also on the important parts of that the accepting back of migrants that have had their asylum requests in greece have been rejected and turkey takes those people back that's something that is also seen as very important and they say they will be looking to turkey to go forward and to meet
5:05 pm
those commitments so at the moment it seems that both sides are seeing this as a cautious optimistic situation a positive environment. to. talk about a customs union agreement and visa liberalization. bring the 2 sides closer together it is what 15 years ago 16 years ago the negotiations for you to become a full member of the e.u. began was given a bad idea. well officially president one only retreated turkey's commitment a few weeks ago to joining the european union but i think it's extremely significant that the worst turkey joining the european union was not mentioned once in the press conference by eva sharp michele. it is i think a common excepted a fact on both sides that turkey's accession bit is all but dead at least for the short if not long term future now we're looking there both sides are looking for
5:06 pm
a way forward beyond turkey's accession bit of a more pragmatic transactional relationship and this meeting this meeting is seen as a crucial step in that process a long way to go yet key issues like resolving the ongoing tensions with greece over the territorial disputes that scene is something that's very important talks are going on with talking greece that is seen as think as key from the european perspective but both sides have are aware that there are many obstacles ahead doria journeys in istanbul thank you now to india west state leaders are calling for a wide vaccination rollout as the country faces a record searching coronavirus cases nearly 97000 new infections were reported on tuesday close to monday's 100000 plus record a senior health official has warned that the fight against kobe 19 of the next 4 weeks will be very very critical hospitals across india are seeing an influx of patients with 1000 and they're turning out in record numbers the rising he says is

5:15 pm
chile as health department is making use of churches across the country to roll out the vaccine the small nation is one of the fastest in the world and getting it done but it's not just the churches stadiums and parks are also part of chile's vaccination campaign there are solutions that aren't hindered by bureaucracy and that's one reason why chile is vaccination program is such a success another reason is this man alexis. the university biochemist made the crucial contact with china so that chile could get hold of millions of vaccine doses early on. our scientific contacts were instrumental in getting a contract in place early on that committed sign of act to supply chile in a timely and prioritized manner for the product. as well as the contract it was also important that chile's researchers could demonstrate the vaccines efficacy. alexa's calera says involvement has helped to build confidence
5:16 pm
here in the chinese vaccine while germany still had reservations about it the university is rector explains before the study only 50 percent of chileans trusted the active ingredient from china now things are different because we were able to credibly show that it works today more than 80 percent trust the vaccine. but despite the vaccine success the infection rate in chile is rising sharply so a strict lockdown has been imposed again anyone out on the streets needs a permit. but why are infection rates rising despite progress in the vaccination campaign apparently many chileans became careless. we're coming out of the chilly in summer and people wanted to relax. they didn't always protect

5:18 pm
during talks hosted by presenter riven rivlin on monday. diplomats of meeting in austria's capital vienna for talks aimed at salvaging the iran nuclear deal the us wants to be 5 the cold which the trumpet ministration withdrew from in 2018 iran is refusing direct talks with the us calling for sanctions to be lifted 1st european countries to seek to mediate between the 2 sides ahead of today's meeting us into arabian officials laid out there and our overarching goal is to ensure that iran's nuclear program is permanently and verifiably constrained and that on a permanent and verifiable basis iran will not be able to obtain a nuclear weapon. who to call whether the joint commissions agenda produces a result or not depends on the europeans and reminding the us of its obligations and the americans acting on their commitments. it was good move from brussels
5:19 pm
correspondent to teri schultz welcome back terry there have been some developments from vienna breaks up today. that's right phil of the man who is heading up the e.u.'s job of mediating between the parties in reconned morris has has tweeted that he had a constructive meeting with what's called the joint commission that's the east 3 britain france and germany china russia and iran he said it was a constructive meeting and he confirms that there is what he calls unity and ambition for a joint diplomatic process and that is for these 2 expert groups that are now working on on separate lists one for what the united states would have to do to rejoin the iran nuclear deal and one for what iran would have to do to come back into compliance with that deal and morris says that he is now going to intensify contacts there in vienna so that's our signal that these talks aren't ending tonight ron so this sounds like good news where with put on context for us where
5:20 pm
does this leave these negotiations. it's certainly good news when you look back at where the nonexistent talks were and relations and tone between the 2 sides under the trump administration with trump calling this the worst deal ever and and the iranians of course besting the trump administration so where the talks are now is that the americans will remain in vienna and the other parties the parties that remain in the nuclear deal including iran will also stay there now with the goal of the mediator of the e.u. would be to bring the 2 sides together the iranians and the americans to the same table and try to to marry up these $22.00 lists and get the sequencing working so that both would happen in tandem and then everybody would be in compliance we're a long way from that but as long as the talks are going on it certainly isn't a blow up which was certainly one of the possibilities so people are sounding quite optimistic that the referee between iran and the united states is dialed down
5:21 pm
significantly since there's been a new president just explain to us what's at stake domestically for the 2 sides. well certainly joe biden took a risk in campaigning on rejoining the nuclear deal there's a lot of opposition to it not just among the conservatives but even among those who would want to rein in nuclear activities from iran they weren't sure this was the best way to do it and that's because in the deal there are some restrictions on iran that expire within just a few years so a lot of people thought it wasn't tight enough that iran wasn't bound permanently to stop its nuclear activities now in iran there's the same kind of pressure from conservatives and also just from the average iranian who didn't see the deal deliver economically the promises that the europeans made that you know that with sanctions lifted their lives would get better the u.s. reimpose those sanctions and the economic situation for iranians is still very
5:22 pm
difficult so there's a lot of pressure to dump the deal as well as pressure to get it back on track thank you so much for. russia is a vast your newspaper is reporting that jazz musician politician alexina valmy has been moved to a sick ward a kremlin critic was jailed in february and has been on hunger strikes and so wednesday to protest about the lack of medical care the parliamentary elections less than 6 months away with or has a crackdown on crime the critics but they could be facing new threats including from within the traditionally loyal communist party w.'s emily show in travel to the southwestern city of tal of where she met a local politician who's determined not to be silenced. in the footsteps of lang. sees himself as a politician of the people just like his communist forefathers but he has a huge social media presence. because you tube channel has over

taken. throughout my whole career during the many hours of live streams online or in my videos i never asked people to follow nicholai blundering co. i'm just asking people to be political if you don't like what i say follow your own line the main thing is to not give up. in russia there are traces of the soviet past everywhere including in south of the communist party is still popular here and across the country even though critics say the party ultimately follows the kremlin line but even russia's so-called systemic opposition parties have recently become an outlet for people's anger at the government where. last year the arrest of a popular governor from the right wing liberal democratic party led to weeks of protests in russia's far eastern city of god. every monday he

has his office hours the 35 year old spends most of the day with constituents people stand in line for support with issues from benefit applications to problems with corruption. i've placed my hopes and. i heard how he talks to people and i've heard his speeches. in russia they don't like people who tell the truth it's always been that way so if he's trying to get the truth out to people naturally he becomes undesirable to the government at the you can see how he acts at all as parliamentary session c.i.'s uncomfortable questions the authorities don't like that but. experts agree that the kremlin might try to keep people like john that anchor out of federal politics. ahead of the duma lections the kremlin makes clear arrangements with the main opposition parties about which candidates can run and what results they should get they don't want to let anyone in who will rock the boat. but despite attempts to intimidate him it isn't ready to give up.
5:26 pm
