america's midwest some places were colder than the surface of mars we bring you the latest from chicago the epicenter of the deep freeze. plus in sports it's crunch time in the asian cup where four time winner has japan are facing off against first time finalist. as underdogs customers have surprised everyone to reach the final defacing controversy about some of this top players ahead of the big showed up. in a warm welcome to you i'm under. washington is expected to announce that it's suspending compliance with the key arms control treaty the u.s. and soviet union sealed the intermediate range nuclear forces in their treaty in
8:02 am
one thousand nine hundred eighty seven the agreement aimed to eliminate a whole category of nuclear missiles the americans see russia's new. cruise missiles violate the pact because they have a range of more than five hundred kilometers moscow denies this last week parts of the controversial system were shown to the public in moscow but not the missiles themselves for its box russia accuses the u.s. of violating the treaty with other weapon systems. talk the u.s. undersecretary for arms control and international security andreea thompson and asked about washington's intention to good draw from the nine hundred eighty seven pact. suspend it and then a six month clock runs if you will during that time russia still can get back into compliance but it frees our obligations under the treaty so we suspend our obligations with the intent to withdraw if they don't get back in compliance but we
8:03 am
have abided by the treaty for the entire time and by suspending their obligations that we'll be able to do the research and development of similar systems that russia now has fully fueled it in in the field so russia in this case would have another six months to be in compliance to do. what exactly in question that russia allegedly possesses that are not compliant with the treaty could you could you name right so the associate is the is the de the nomenclature the arms of the russians you know which system it is. we've continued to meet with them and show them intelligence and information on why this system is not in compliance we've continued to show them the test dates locations of when they conducted the tests that our intel. community and our partners we've shared that information as well and they continue to deny that the test results are the same we share this information we work very hard with our intelligence community to
8:04 am
get the intelligence what they call downgraded so we can share it with our nato partners and share it with other allies and you've seen the results in response all of our nato partners and allies continue to call out russia so the same information they support our efforts to uphold the obligations of the treaty joining me now is of russia and this constant team get from moscow a let them constantly moscow be quite happy with this us move free to do as they please always russia be invited much frets of a new cold war well they get cuts both ways and so it is clear that in some respects russia will be happy it will be a bit able to keep the end this is eight missiles that it has already produced as the as a secular state saying it will also be able to deployed were it wants and i think it was one of the sweeteners that john bolton the national security advisor to president drum throats to moscow last autumn when he said ok yes we're leaving the
8:05 am
treaty we're sick and tired of you but you can deploy that for example against china which is one of the sort of it's a big white elephant in the room here because this is what america is also interested in deploying these missiles against the chinese on the other hand of course if president putin wants to start a new arms race with the united states we know what the result is going to be is going to be exactly the one that happened in the in one thousand eighties namely russia will lose but the u.s. hasn't completely closed the door as yet we just have the u.s. arms control chief saying that moscow has six months to comply with alleged breaches do you think we put in we'll be listening. i don't think so i don't i don't imagine you're waking up one day and saying well god how couldn't i make good i'm is this charts no way of putting is very much focused on expanding russian
8:06 am
military arsenal giving the military new much any other new hardware and i don't think he can roll back even jobs because that will mean that we'll he will have to admit that he was lying for a long shot so i can't imagine this happening barring some fantastic sort of developments on some lyrical bit consider mentioning china the elephant in the room but they are those who say washington's move is aimed at china which is not bound by the same thing about to building he didn't range missile has been said in russia i think that many people in russia hold all not that meeting that will share that view you know about china in moscow they speak as they speak about the dead man either good or nothing but i think there's a growing fear of the chinese expansionism of china's growing military might of the chinese very sort of strong arm politics on the global scene so as i said i think that to some extent. quite
8:07 am
a few people in russia will be happy with that and other issue is whether america and russia will be able to find common ground on the chinese threat if this really happens then of course this treaty will be much less relevant let's put it like that to some extent it is definitely a relic of the cold war but you have to agree with the new products as well and this maybe will be what would be discussed between moscow and course in the coming years maybe again i'm not sure about constantine and us in moscow thank you very much for your analysis later. now if the treaty collapses a nuclear arms race as it did in the one nine hundred eighty s. back then hundreds of thousands of journalists protested against the deployment of american nuclear weapons. did. travel to the southern town of heilbronn where american medium range missile based in the. here in this

8:10 am
a child has said that he wants to back out of the nuclear missile treaty what's your opinion on this. new u.s. missiles nichols is unsure how he feels about that america america is in a very very difficult situation at the moment and my opinion is that everyone. in the one nine hundred eighty s. there were massive demonstrations against u.s. missiles across germany including here and. he's a bishop title would attend the protest march if there were one today to a few i would definitely go out and demonstrate it's very important to me that peace remains our top priority i would definitely go out and join a protest for this cause. back at the former volatile base the old u.s. soldier and the young pacifist share the same fear that the arms race between russia and the u.s. will start up again and no one will have learned from the mistakes of the past.

they are allowed to play in this tournament because their mothers were born in qatar now you are a claim at least that this is force they say that they have documents which prove that their mothers were born in iraq and sudan as well and not in qatar which would would cause the horrible shadow of a guitar going into this final because like i said if surprised everybody was there for all and this is slightly concerning those stories broken by an australian journalist called scott's macintyre and he also claims to be in possession of these documents so while nothing has been proved yet. yet to respond to the allegations it does look as if you know something something files in a play here oakley each other a lot about beefy tell me what are you expecting from japan or japan or what among the pre-tournament favorite so they've won the tournament four times and now their form has been a little bit shaky going into this final but i think a lot neutrals at least are expecting them to go on to win another one here ok ed mckay mission leader of the sports desk thank you very much. here's a recap of the top story that they're following for you. the u.s. is expected to announce its courting compliance with the keep nuclear arms treaty
