10:05 pm
but at the same time she had to was the russians. she expressed a desire from the side of the german government for substantive and stable relations with russia. so i think in her remarks, we found this, this thought, we know that nato does have quite a surround of deterrence and, and to taunt off providing a strong response to russian aggression, but also be willing to engage them. s. s, nato secretary general in short to set to engage them to listen to actual concerns and to discuss risk reduction measures, arms control and song. and what we saw the day we had the german foreign minister in moscow. we had the new german chancellor at nato headquarters b. these are, this is the highest ranking you can get from germany dealing with a crisis of this level. are we getting the same message here that's coming from this new government?
10:06 pm
i mean, is germany going to walk the walk and not just talk the talk when it comes to punishing russia? if an invasion of ukraine takes place? we see the partners certainly not quite last week. no round the same message, i think for the longest time, all i've chose, jeremy's transfer was reluctant to put not 32 on the table as a deterrent towards where your aggression in aggression against ukraine. back in december he said that offering to was a private sector project. he didn't have any political geopolitical relevance today, and his oppressor, with what control broke his head that everything would be up for discussion. if, if russia attacked ukraine, that's a message at the greens and the f t p. the 2 other question partners of germany's new corps and government happen emphasizing for a while now. and it's, and it's great to see that the coalition seems to be landing on the same page when it comes to this effort to destroy the mountain. moscow's renewed aggression
10:07 pm
against the queen were brought here it is. is it clear here? i mean, are we getting this message from this new german government? if russia invades ukraine, germany will unilaterally kill the nord stream to pipeline. is that message clear? i think a journey is reluctant to anything unilaterally, but it would do so certainly, and consultations with us nato allies, with nato partners at to sweden and finland, and certainly with ukraine as we've heard, antony blinking m as traveling to europe this week as well. he's going to keith tomorrow, he's going to be in berlin on thursday and, and presumably will meet his fresh encounter. ponce, i gave up ruffin geneva on friday. so that's a full called press 2 to fuse this crisis and anything that jerome you would decide what certainly not be the natural,

10:10 pm
images taken by a new zealand surveillance flight show ash covering much of the pacific island nation. take a look at that. the blanket of ash is also making it impossible for airplanes to land at the airport. ships carrying relief supplies are now on their way from australia and new zealand. but because of the enormous distances, it will take a couple of days before the boats are raw or want to bring in sean casey, he's with the world health organization. he's the health cluster coordinator for the pacific region. he's joining me tonight from fiji. it's good. we appreciate you taking time to talk with us to night is the people on tonga, what's the biggest threat to them right now? thanks for having me. at this point the, the small islands, as you mentioned in the high group, mungo island island, the, the buildings are almost completely destroyed on those islands and the populations
10:11 pm
are having to be relocated actually. so that's underway, and that's being led by the government up to that more broadly. but the whole country is covered in ash and that is contaminating water supplies. so the, the most urgent need for the entire population is really access to water. and for, for some communities, it's going to be a shelter and reconstruction. and as you mentioned, we have very little communications with talking at the moment. the internet cable is cut and international calls are impossible. and so we're relying completely on the satellite communication, which is very patchy and very difficult at the time, but we are, we are able to communicate, but in very short bursts in so we've got these 1st photos, these 1st images that the world is seeing now of the devastation that we're going to be showing this to our viewers. what did you think when you saw those 1st images it's, it's,
10:12 pm
it's disturbing to see at the level of destruction to the be these green islands. i mean, i've been to, several times. it's a very green last place, beautiful, beautiful islands. and it really does look like everything is covered in ash and it changes the whole image of the country from what you from what you imagine it to be it's, it's, it's, it's a sad situation. but the government of tommy is really taking the lead. they jumped right into action, deployed their own ships, their own national emergency medical team to the most effected areas. and we have support on the way. so hopefully this, this recovery effort can proceed in the coming days. and we know that getting help to the people target is the 1st priority. but tanya, because of its geography, has this, this lecture re of being a, a country, a place that is coded free. there is no corona virus on this,
10:13 pm
on the main island does proving or providing aid to the people. does that also put public health at risk? that's right to tony is one of the very few countries in the world at it that is still covered free. there's no cover cases locally at all in the country and it's the responsibility of everybody that's involved to do our best to, to manage that risk. so at this point, we don't immediately expect that personnel will be deployed into the country. that may change over the coming weeks, but with, if it does, it would require as significant risk mitigation measures. but target has stayed kogan free by very carefully managing its borders and taking great precautions. and i don't think they want to compromise that. and at this point they're, they're using their own resources to respond and, and very effectively, particularly the outer islands. so we don't expect that lots of personnel will
10:14 pm
deploy, perhaps none into the country, but the supplies that are needed are already on the way. what that is good to hear . sean katie from the w h o joining us tonight from fiji. sean, thank you. thank you. if only a choice piece of real estate in rome is still on the market. you see right there after failing to attract any bitters. the villa aurora was built back in 1570. it's unique selling point. she see it right. there is the only ceiling mural that was painted by the artist out of audio. the current occupant is being forced to sell after an inheritance, to speak with her late husbands. children. the starting bid was said at 353000000 euros. if you're interested, you'll also have to invest 11000000 euros to bring the property in line with 21st century building code. thank you very much. your to d w. news. his reminder,
