one priority. we ask all parties to exercise restraint and not use violence to avoid casualties and bloodshed at. malaysia singapore and the philippines have also voiced similar concerns others such as cambodia a more reserved leader hunston has refused to comment on the situation in myanmar saying it's an internal affair. and then there is thailand despite feeling what it called gravely troubled by the casualties of the crisis the country has been criticized for turning refugees away. we have spoken to those who enter thailand and ask them if they had any problems in their area if they say they had no problem we just asked them to return we ask we did not use any

7:38 pm
a framework to end the violence currently to deliver humanitarian aid and to potentially facilitate a myanmar lead and a myanmar on dialogue process among all the stakeholders. human rights groups servitor by talking to cool you know general mean on hearing is illegitimacy in his government to these people have a point i think what is happening right now is a recognition of reality not legitimacy legitimacy is something the people of myanmar has to decide from themselves what ason is doing right now is recognizing that currently the main goal of the summit is to end the violence and the one that's doing the violence is the military so therefore we called the military to the summit to get them to stop the violence you also said earlier that it's important that all stakeholders in myanmar sit down and talk speaking of those 3
7:39 pm
callers were talking about the ouster of democratic government would it not have been better to invite them as well to this austrian leaders' meeting. again the goal of the summit as it stands right now is to end the violence 1st and foremost the goal of the summit is not to negotiate a settlement just yet because for such dialogue to be taking place we have to 1st and the violence and i deliver humanitarian aid which was necessary to create the space that would allow such a dialogue to take place so it should be very in mind that the summit or the meeting tomorrow is not a venue to nikos shaped settlement just yet it is about ending the violence that can lead to debt settlement down the line how united odd aussie on member nations in their approach to myanmar i mean the leaders of thailand in the philippines on attending and thailand is also a major trade partner for me and modern you also have our border and vietnam which
7:40 pm
are essentially one party states so i'm wondering how united is this grouping it is certainly not all united i thing a different members have different urgency to the crisis they certainly have different interests and stake with the crisis right now so it is certainly not unified as it stands right now which is why i think the process of convening this meeting took several months since the coup it hasn't been easy but i think we are at the precipice of a potential breakthrough if all the negotiations leading up to that summit goes well you belong to a thing turned does leah's a lot with the indonesian government and indonesia has been one of the promoters if i can call it off there's also meeting trying to get everybody together especially the indonesia malaysia singapore grouping what exactly is indonesia's game plan. well our hope is is obviously that any kind of solution to the myanmar crisis
7:41 pm
should take place within an os and framework because i think this allows some acceptability played a part is in man mark and that we can hopefully solve this without external parties but of course the ideal goal of getting there would require that the violence to be ended and we can deliver aid to that effect and we've done this before so this is not our 1st stance which is why we always try to make sure that our 1st option is to try to solve this within the family framework one last question so no throughout its history also member states of germany tended to focus on economic cooperation more than political issues is this a pivotal moment for the role that ends up playing here i think it is certainly the case that the meeting itself is not scheduled that this is not a normal asan calendar year the fact that engine president has to call for
7:42 pm
a special meeting shows you the gravity of the situation so it is certainly on the one hand not our 1st stance in terms of dealing with problems for myanmar but also the gravity of the situation makes it unprecedented so which is why i think we should have to see what happens tomorrow. everyone looks upon a pleasure talking to you thank you so much for this and you were having me. and before we go this weekend a rare painting by a chinese artist should hong is expected to fetch the highest price ever for an art . slave and lion we go under the hammer on saturday in hong kong inspired by us the story from roman mythology the owner on canvas painting is viewed as one of the most important in chinese history the artwork was painted not in asia but here in berlin in $1024.00 it could go for as much as $16000000.00 u.s. dollars.

7:53 pm
the far right party in the german parliament who who applauded this action and say these videos show support for their actions against german lockdown policies right ok well that's obviously not a very well thought through campaign and somewhat of a of a huge embarrassment what kind of consequences do you think this might this kind of thing might haue yeah. yeah i mean basically everyone's backpedaling now i mean after this reaction a lot of the actors who are in these videos have come out and apologized they said they do not want to be associated with the far right that was not their intention in making these videos and the company that produced these videos has taken them off their main site of course they are still available online they're still circulating but they've essentially everyone he's backpedaling it's just one huge mess all the more shocking perhaps when you think that just 2 days ago we were talking about health film and television were actually booming here in germany has all of these particular actors are certainly doing pretty well thanks very much for
