8:02 am
ah, i'm good. how else as well come to the program? it's being called north korea's most significant weapons tests in years. the reclusive regime has confirmed it has launched a missile that can reach us bases in the pacific state media set. the weapon was a while song 12 that's a ballistic missile of intermediate range. it is capable of hitting the u. s. territory of guam with a nuclear warhead. it's the 1st time the north has tested a missile that size since 2017. the report said pictures of the earth were taken in space. from the missiles knows cone, it's flight was 1st detected by a neighboring south korea and japan, which condemned the test. a grandmother not done door beside it or not because of that, a series of actions by north korea, including the repeated launches of ballistic missiles, threatened the peace and security of japan, the region and the international community center. little of the great such intense
8:03 am
ballistic missile launches are in violation of relevant security council resolutions. and our country has made a strong protest to north korea de again, junior coolio dash mazda. for maura, i'm joined by a josh smith is a senior, corresponded with the reuters news agency in sol. josh, we keep hearing about these tests and south korea and japan and the u. s. have been quick to voice their concern. do we need to be concerned? so all of these missiles have been smaller than the really large intercontinental ballistic missiles that got a lot of attention back in 2017 when dark retested them. those are the ones that could reach as far as the united states. but one thing the analysts have increasingly pointed out in the officials here and sold in japan, as you mentioned, have said, is that these missiles that north korea has developed lately are increasingly capable. and they are the types that could be potentially used in the case of war
8:04 am
ever breaks out. and so for people that are down here, potentially in a firing line, made all of these tensions, it is something that is very concerning. and military analysts and officials like say that not prayers making real progress in increasing the capabilities they're not for show show. they're not purely a propaganda tool. they do have military potential. but it's the propaganda that this was the biggest miss on north korea has tested since 2017 and follows month of smaller test. however, contrary to 2070, that's been far less of the bombast than the shrill threats from young young this time ron, can we make anything of this? that is correct. there has been much less talk of byron theory that we saw in 2017 . north korea has mentioned its displeasure with the united states,
8:05 am
particularly with sanctions and with ongoing military activities by the united states and south korea here. but it's really all of a state media coverage of most of these tests really focused on the technical aspects of it. and leader kim don't only showed up at one of the 7 tests, unlike many of the test back in 2017. and this is something that analysts point to as evidence that north korea is in many ways trying to normalize its tests. in fact, get the world to accept that these are normal self defense operations by a country that is just trying to protect it. so let's have a look at the timing of this test. diplomats working round the clock at the moment to prevent russian invasion in ukraine relations with china, the worst in years. what do you read into the timing of this missile test? so there are a lot of internal things going on in north korea outside of that, this is comes ahead of some very key holidays that they usually like to show a display of their military power around. and they of course have some economic
8:06 am
crises. so this is in part of the government, you show strength in the face of those problems at the same time, unless an officials that we've talked to have noted that north korea could be taking advantage of a bit of distraction by a lot of the world is seeking to continue to make these real military advances at a time when united states its allies, other countries around the world only have so much bandwidth to concentrate on. calculating perhaps that they can make some progress with less of the attention that they got in the class. just smith there in a. so for us, thank you josh. so let's have a look at some of the other stories making headlines. at least 18 people have been killed in brazil after heavy rains. the state of south palo saw landslides and flooding. authorities say around 500 families have been left homeless. the states
8:07 am
governor has authorized emergency aid money for the affected areas. brazil has experienced torrential rains and flooding over the past month but as, as angry over canadas vaccine mandates have blocked roads for a 2nd day in the capital all to one. the demonstrators includes truck drivers who organize the convoy from the western part of the country. prime minister just intruder and his family were moved to an undisclosed location as a precaution. music streaming service spotify is taking new measures to combat. covet 19 misinformation. it follows a dispute that saw artists neil young and joni mitchell removed their music from the platform. bouquets, prince harry and his wife megan market, who have deals with spot if i have also expressed concern over vaccine misinformation. now the united states and britain are warning of new and devastating economic sanctions against russia. as nato allies are stepping up
8:08 am
efforts to prevent an attack on ukraine, fears of a russian invasion are growing with britain's foreign minister now calling it quote, highly likely. meanwhile, re ukraine's president is urging the west to avoid panic over rushes to build up on his country's borders. on sunday night or chief at the end of stoughton back. welcome. more support for your friends defense. but rolled out any boots on the ground. we have no plans to deploy natal combat troops or to ukraine. we do a lot of stuff to help ukraine or strength this again, ability capability to, to defend itself. but again, ukraine is not that natal allied, so the 100 percent security guarantees that an attack on one i'll i will trigger the response from the whole onst dot, the vice fort ne darlise 8. hutchins stroking back speaking there and me while germany has angered nato allies. with its refusal to send weapons to ukraine,
8:09 am
u. s. a. britain have announced arms deliveries, mostly hand guns, ammunition and anti tank missiles. but berlin says the export of lethal weapons to the region could increase tensions with russia. russian fighter jets in eastern europe, moscow's military build up on ukraine's border. has he f desperate to arm it's defense forces? ukraine has us germany for support, but has met reluctance from the new coalition government. while berlin has approved the delivery of 5000 helmets. it said no to leave. the weapons is good that i did at one mit. that was right now we're trying to engage russia and diplomatic talks to avert a war. in the middle of europe, i believe supply weapons would send the complete run signal. it would not lead to an easing of diplomatic tensions by known as a thought. soon, con. the german government is still deciding whether nato ally, estonia, continue, crane, heavy artillery made in the former east germany berlins policy not to export lethal weapons to conflict regions is backed by the greens because in that block launched
8:10 am
it. of course, it's a central question, is it possible to be tough and engage in dialogue with russia and deliver weapons? i'd say no, and that's why our policy is the right one alone. if it's a night of the subs and we can always dispute as much, that policy for now doesn't include a stop to the node stream to pipeline. but if russia does attack ukraine, chancellor of sholtes isn't ruling out painful sanctions. of a more now joined by the w melinda cray. melinda the governing, s. p. d. 's meeting today to discuss the issue of how to deal with russia and is to build up on the crime border. so chance all of shows his own party can't agree really on their own foreign policy. why is that? that's right. that germans often attribute aversion to participating in military action of any kind to their world war to history, to this country's responsibility for a war that caused unfathomable suffering and death all across europe. and
8:11 am
especially for the s p d. germany's cold war experience reinforced that stats in the eyes of many germans and many social democrats, that conflict was overcome, not by deterrence, but by diplomacy. not because nato stationed purging missiles on the border to eastern europe. that because the social democratic chancellor really brant, adopted for us to pull a t east policy which cultivated closer economic and diplomatic ties to the east. so reflecting both parts of that history, germany has passed. laws that formerly prohibit the shipment of weapons to conflict regions, but in fact, this country is one of the world's biggest weapons exporters. and these arms often wind up in wars out whether it's sudan, syria, men, or elsewhere. so it's very hard to understand why the government is being so dogmatic in this particular case. so it's
8:12 am
a complicated issue for historical reasons, really. but how is this approach affecting germany is in reputation on the international stage with its nato partners as well? well, there's 5000 helmets that the government has now. finally said, it's going to send many people to many critics, not only in here, but in other allied capitals as well. that simply looks like either an insult or a joke. and the fact is, many of these critics say that either the german government apparently doesn't get the idea of deterrence, that sending defense, if not offensive defensive weapons, might actually help avert a conflict. or that the government simply views, commercial ties with russia. it's more important than regional stability or commitments to partners. and in fact, the head of the globally influential unit security conference and
