berlin. on thursday, the leaders of estonia, lapierre and lithuania, met with chancellor shelter to discuss the strategic response to moscow's aggression in the region. now it is more important than ever to mobilize and to defend the values that are an essential element, uniting the best a lives nato guaranteed peace and stability for the case and made it possible to achieve collective security level that our contest enjoy. today. nato troops are all ready protecting the alliance is northeast and flank in the baltic states. in fact, soldiers like these german, stationed in lithuania, close to russian territory, a part of what bloody mir putin object state germany has announced. it is beefing up its deployment, sending an extra $350.00 bonus for troops to join the mission. but johnson michelle says dialogue is still the aim. we haven't found was that we expect from russia
10:03 pm
clear steps to reduce the current tensions in the region. we need de escalation of the stuff to bought, the stronger. at the same time, we already put serious dialogue with russia on questions of european security. look foreign over piece of the shot. the bolted countries are willing to supply lethal weapons to ukraine, such as javelin missiles, assistance. in some cases, they would need the agreement of germany, which is reluctant to see more deadly alms going into the region that rushes native b. as such, qualms will be seen as weakness, diplomacy, and generating dialogue will have a chance only in combination with the credible to terrance and force poster. any failure in this would send an encouraging signal to russia and could lead to similar tactics and pressure elsewhere. at a separate meeting in berlin on thursday,
10:04 pm
ukrainian and russian officials also sat down together for talks. the hope must be that all the diplomacy will help to prevent war or earlier french and german diplomats took part in what is known as the normandy format. talks here in berlin with their counterparts from russia and france. the talks are aimed at easing tensions over ukraine. i asked defense policy experts via bash, if european allies such as france and germany, if they have much influence over what vladimir putin is going to do. well, that's a good question. i mean fans and germany obviously influential powers in europe and they are important voices in this crisis, not least because. busy they would suffer under economic sanctions, should the country get to that stage? and you know, they have often cast themselves a set of mediating powers and relations with russia. germany has historically often pursued the role of a diplomatic mediator. my call has to out his presidency,
10:05 pm
attempted to forge new negotiation, pat smith, putin, and now they are trying to exert influence. for instance, as he said to the normandy forum, the benefits of that farm is that we have ukraine and russia both at the table at the hope is that we can use it to come to a diplomatic solution. revived the so called minsk, a cards that were struck after russia last and made it ukraine. but they are notoriously ambiguous. they are interpreted differently by all the parties, and they have never been fully implemented in the end. i think the tax can only succeed. france and germany can only succeed if russia engages as a good faith participant, which is less than clear at this time. that's a, that's very questionable on position at the moment. we know the biggest counterpart to bruton is of course you as president joe biden. how much influence? again, that france and germany have on the white house at this moment? well, the u. s. and the europeans have been really closely coordinator in this crisis. i
10:06 pm
would say an increasingly so no one wants a war and as a western alliance, we have opted for this sort of 2 pronged strategy of to terrans. and the one hand and dialogue on the other hand, early on, you know, in the us and russia have engagement bilateral talks of am, control issues and confidence. building measures in france and germany have in recent days will increase the intensity of their own diplomatic efforts. you know, we've had my call in and moscow and he has, we have shots as conversations out with the leaders of the baltic states today with the hollins president and then his plan trip to moscow. i think those conversations are important because france and germany are really strongest when they have the credibility and legitimacy are representing some sort of broader european interest . and for that, it's incredibly important that they close the engage with and listen to the interests and concerns of other european states before they speak to moscow or for that matter to, to washington the you know, earlier this week the french birds emmanuel micron. he was in moscow to meet with
10:07 pm
vladimir putin and it's important to note that mack, ron is facing reelection in just 2 months time. he's been criticized for maybe campaigning, if you will, at the kremlin, the german transfer he goes to the kremlin, next week, should, should he do anything differently from what we saw micron do this week? shows isn't a really difficult position going to moscow because it's so difficult to see what a diplomatic offering could look like at this point. and my call faced the same issue, you know, to your point where the he's complaining in the criminal. i think we've heard throughout because presidents, he has taken an interest in relations with russia and trying to re engage the kremlin. but it's less and less clear what a compromise could look like between rest and values and russian interests. at this point, you know, russia seems to want to more reinstated policy of spheres of influence in europe's
10:08 pm
east. denying a country like you crammed the freedom to choose its own alliances, influence it's broader politics and then foreign policy and europe and the u. s. i sort of sworn to protect the decision making autonomy and territorial integrity of ukraine, and any compromise on the status of ukraine would essentially undermine this. this stands of the west. on her 1st visit to the middle east, german foreign minister, angelina bare bach, has urged israel and the palestinians to restart the peace process their bog started her trip with a visit to the holocaust memorial. and israel. the whole of names that yet the sham and memorial to the jews lost during the holocaust. their names, their life. stories under photographs are collected here. an archive of the millions murdered a culture decimated. it's the project decanter. anyone who tries to deny or time play the nazi genocide, anti semitism, germany's foreign minister on alena,
