figures. but also, holes sectors of the bill of russian economy shall be targeted to talk about sanctions against the very profitable industry which produces the potassium stalls. and also the petrochemical industry shall be targeted. and also maybe the financial aspect of this, this would mean a huge enlargement of those sanctions. and the questions also the assessment of these possible things is really they hit the people have been of us where they hit only the leadership over. they also harm the economy in europe itself, right? and then you bring that one export because what one does, what the point of the sanctions is, what does the in you hope to achieve by piling more sanctions on one of europe's poorest countries. when the current sanctions seem to have had some little effect.
4:08 pm
yeah, it's right to say the sanction. so if i have to have no drug so that you is now willing to enforce more sanctions because that is a thing. this incident on sunday was crossing a red line and there has to be a signal not only to better route, but also to russia, which is the staunch is ally of the root. and the german for him is hypo mas even heightened the prize. he said, not only have these 2 people that were arrested on sunday to be released, but all 400 political dissidence detainees in baler is have to be released before the sanctions can be lifted. but there's some technical steps to take that there will be no decision today that will take another days or even weeks until these new sanctions will take effect. if this is a complicated business, isn't, isn't it? because you said that it's important that battle roost themselves don't necessarily suffer and we have these flight bands and i was due on monday and type of board

4:10 pm
a new investigation into the origins of the corona virus. he wants intelligence officials to deliver their findings within 3 month us agencies and divide it over whether the virus emerge from an effective article or from a laboratory accident. the will hon. institute of technology houses, the biggest virus bank in asia. it's a maximum security bio lab. 3 researchers fell ill in november 2019, and were hospitalized with flu like symptoms, weeks before the 1st identified case of the cobra, 900 outbreak. the wall street journal was the 1st to publish these new details. quoting a us intelligence report, the hypothesis is that the virus spread to humans after a lab accident. 2 weeks ago, 18 prominent scientists wrote a letter to the journal science calling for a new investigation into the origin of covey. 19 every laboratory in the world,
4:11 pm
including our very own c, d, c. and i, containment laboratories in the united states. they all have had laboratory accidents, laboratory accidents happen everywhere. there are humans, humans are fallible. so it's absolutely reasonable to think that some other laboratory also had an accident not least because the whoo hon institute studied corona viruses and their transmission through bat. china has dismissed the lab leak theory. it says reports of 3 sick researchers are online and maintains there was 0 infection among the hon institute staff. after months of negotiations, china allowed a fact finding mission led by the world health organization to travel to hon. more than a year after the pandemic outbreak, the panel concluded that the virus probably originated in bats and passed to humans through an intermediate animal,
4:12 pm
the laboratory incidents. and i put this is extremely unlikely. but some team members complained that they were denied sufficient access to data by the chinese authorities. now the u. s. is calling for a new investigation, one that reaches a definitive conclusion. as get more on this from data here before sir william, blue cross. welcome william, but let's start with with base investigations. so we just heard that the w h o or already held an investigation. why does president biden think that a us lead investigation is going to get further and more access than the world health organization? well, i think we just heard about it in the report, the w h o investigators were really being controlled quite heavily by chinese authorities. it's of course in china's interest for their own credibility, in their own respect on the world stage that this,
4:13 pm
this doesn't land on their plate, so to speak. if it were to found, be found out that there was a lab leak in one of their most prestigious labs in whoo, hon. now, of course, with the us intelligence community doing their own reporting, us intelligence, cia, and a say other organizations they don't need permission from china or for any other country to go about their business at the very nature of intelligence. so they may have more access, more sources, more, more ability to gather information, as is their job, the navy, the w h o would have in negotiations with china. but we know that none of this was really new. although there's growing skepticism about the natural emergence theory, you know, serious scientists have been looking at this question since the beginning of the pandemic and looking for answers. ok. so the 2 theories, one either emerge naturally or the other is that there was a lab accident. and why is that the lab accident theory so sensitive?
4:14 pm
well, of course, lab accidents would mean culpability liability. there could be legal claims. there could be huge financial damages, of course, and of course the political ramifications there's respect and prestige on the world stage, as i mentioned. and also, let's not forget that a year ago, donald trump, for president united states, he was pushing a very nativist anti china, almost conspiracy. that this was somehow intentionally leaked by china to damage the world. they were. and china, for part, had conspiracies against the united states that there was somehow a u. s. military plot against china. we've been a lot of just very strange and unfounded accusations going back and forth. and very few serious scientists wanted to have anything to do with those kinds of claims, even if there might be some truth that matters. the problem with the credibility of the trouble ministration. that even when they said things that were correct or worthy of investigating people still kept their distance, it was something of a boy who cried wolf situation that donald trump created. of course, not only on donald trump,
4:15 pm
and it should be said as we heard him report that accidents happen all the time. and this could very easily simply be one of them. not because a conspiracy, not because of a bio weapon or anything sinister, but just because humans as we heard in the report or follow ok, but i us investigation whatever it finds. not just another brick in the wall of antagonism between the united states and china. oh, very much so, and we should see this in the bigger political contacts at the u. s. and china are in a great power game right now, joe biden, and his ministration have made no secret that china is their number one foreign policy challenge. viewing china as a threat in some areas, a competitor in some areas and trying to see it as a partner in other areas like climate change. and that is going to hold china to account whether it's on trade, whether it's on military aggression and expansion. all, all number of issues where the us east china as a potential adversary on the world stage in a potential adversary.
