see to be attacking the agreement in this way because it essentially makes it harder to work with iran politically and diplomatically to find solutions on the host of difficult issues that are legitimately criticized by the trump administration to iran's support for extremist groups iran's destabilizing rule in many parts of the middle east mr kerry said only by working within a diplomatic framework can we hope to contain iran but if we torpedo that agreement we make it extremely hard for moderate iranians to compromise melinda. you've been showing us the two narratives that we're hearing at the moment at the unix security car conference the israeli narrative the iranian narrative very different in tone and in terms of the stories that telling us i want to pick up on something that the iranian foreign minister mentioned she talked about iran
believing in a fresh security architecture needed in the persian gulf he talked about what he called an inclusive concept of security and he also talked about the mid term goal of a regional non-aggression pact was that just window dressing or should we take iran at its word what's your take on all those proposals. those who believe that political solutions are not only possible but necessary those who believe that the threats in the middle east can and must be contained by diplomatic means i absolutely agree with that approach and it's a call that we've heard here from a number of other speakers as well and as you probably could hear for those in the audience who are following the words of the chairman of the security conference who is himself by the way a seasoned diplomat he was very interested in that proposal it's a proposal that we. i also heard voiced by arab representatives here shortly we're
going to be hearing from saudi arabia i'm not sure that they're going to be on the same wavelength as the iranian foreign minister but certainly we have heard calls from a number of people for that new regional security architecture and it was interesting to hear ms does that reef compare that with the process that is known as the helsinki process as you remember that was put into place during the cold war again to find ways to make incremental step by step moves toward cooperation and agreement especially reps realizing we are not going to get the best possible solution in place right away but we can what we can do is to work toward deescalation work toward confidence building work toward the establishment of networks of cooperation and by the way a very high level turkish official said here today that in fact communications
networks are in place despite the multitude of actors now on the ground in syria waging a number of proxy conflicts he said they are talking to one the month another in an attempt to deescalate there so as to some degree that network is already in place and i think there are a number of important leaders in the region who feel that must be expanded and built up and who are optimistic about the prospects for doing so ok melinda you know i love talking to you about world affairs always in and reaching experience but so for now many thanks linda crane the chief political correspondent reporting from the munich security conference and if you want to see more of their friends the events draw that conference so you can follow it live we have a live stream on our web site that's the dot com. forward slash world and we will

that the country had reached a tipping point i think everybody here and as awful as all this is the fact that we are here right now shows that this is nothing like anything we've ever seen before. but at a gun show being held now by there was some very familiar scenes dozens of assault style rifles were on display organizers resisted pressure to cancel the event in light of the shooting while visitors said the guns themselves were not to blame for the tragedy. back at the rally one of the speakers took aim at president although trump she criticized him for focusing on mental health issues rather than the easy access to dangerous weapons she also attacked him and others for taking donations from powerful gun lobby groups. but we need to pay attention to the fact that this isn't just a mental health issue. oh

ok let's get the latest now from the winter olympics in lima talking with me from the sports we're going to start off with no way i understand they've picked up another gold in this very acrobatic discipline slopestyle skiing just stated goal number nine for them then now on top of the table when it comes to the medal standings together with germany. gold they hold the same nine goals for both but thanks to this guy here twenty two year old voice time but not now and christopher ski slope style is very heavily influenced by state boarding i mean just look at the complexity of those tricks he just landed with. after doing that jump he landed with his back facing the bottom of the slope this is the silver medalist an incredibly just as an his jump was just as incredible and the competition this time around was really intense and it's not something you should try i mean a definitely not the only risk that i'd like to talk about short track speed skating one of my personal favorite i'm not very good myself at short track speed
skating but the south koreans are yes they are it's a religion it's a religion in south korea they have huge sell out crowds that show up at these games and really what is there not to like it is like whoa dobby on ice and a favorite toy men young she took gold in the women's five hundred meter fence of course went over the moon and she just. i mean when she takes control there's no catching her and i didn't i don't know if you know this but the majority of south korea's reenter olympic medals come in this event in short track speed skating they have more medals in short track speed skating than any other country. i find it a spectacular sport i love watching it. skiing great touch gold again as they from australia as you did and you know the saying good things come to those who wait you just have to look at marshall her shot it took him three picks to grab his first medal and today second gold of the games for him the latest in the men's
giant slalom and he didn't just win christopher he dominated he won by more than a full second one point two seven seconds to be exact and that's the largest margin in fifty years but i think what makes this the fact that he finally landed a gold at the winter games is that there's an end to the debate is her show one of the best he has of all time yes he is because now he has the gold to show it and use a canadian know what you're talking about just very briefly what else should we be looking forward to on day nine of the winter olympics depends what you're into if you want the need for speed then definitely tune into speed skating the woman's five hundred meter was a definite all i something for me put this in at you for new for you exactly if you had to endure and and stamina there's always the men's biathlon insurance stamina that's not so for the past and the furious about the exam tacky from t.v. sports many thanks for that update. we have a quick reminder for you of our top story at the moment israeli prime minister
