2:02 pm
u.s. sends by late said joint on's treaty the s.s.e. eight is said to have a range of more than five hundred kilometers which would break the i.n.f. treaty just last week parts of the system are on display near moscow u.s. president donald trump has been threatening to pull out of the pact since the end of last year. russia has not heard orchard way out of the agreement so we're going to terminate it agree but we're going to pull out the u.s. lead ons control negotiate and has told g.w. that the government is using the move to force russia's hand illegal 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 we don't get back in compliance but we 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
2:03 pm
russia now has for the fuel that in the field. which russian president vladimir putin has tonight breaking the agreement and won't budge. it wasn't a historic moment when in one thousand nine hundred eighty seven russian president mikhail gorbachev and u.s. president ronald reagan signed the i.n.f. treaty it marked a change of course off to decades of nuclear tensions during the cold war years. the treaty banjo brown deal inched missiles with ranges of between five hundred and five and a half thousand kilometers those who felt most at risk during the cold war were countries in western europe. but even germany's foreign minister heiko must recently held talks with america's secretary of state's microamp a.o. at mit's the treaty is no longer a working. order going on or without the nuclear missile. treaty there would be
2:04 pm
less security but we recognize that this treaty has been violated by the russian side on the jury in the last sixty days and successful attempts have been made to clear up the accusations more transparency and more information. in so far as this is a treaty between two signatories and that one is in violation of it the treaty is de facto suspended. all star craft because the. pressure is mounting on russia to save the treaty but for now it appears to be dead. so let's go right to moscow our correspondent emily sure when is standing by there for us are covering this story emily maybe you can fill us in on the reactions there today in moscow well the reaction has been very much one of bracing for the u.s. exit from the i.n.f. treaty the foreign ministry today said that essentially this exit was unavoidable
2:05 pm
the deputy foreign minister called it a done deal and of course russia has also been continuously did not being in violation of the treaty there was a presentation that you just mentioned as well last week where russia showed off this missile that supposedly is in violation of the treaty they said that its range is just four hundred eighty kilometers rather than the five hundred kilometers that would put it within the range of the missiles that are of our inviolate that would be in violation of the i.n.f. treaty and also today we've seen the russian side condemning the u.s. exit the u.s. leaving the i.n.f. treaty the deputy foreign minister said that that was a huge blow to international security and only as we heard this comes after talks to save this pact failed in moscow said that the u.s. has been negotiating in bad faith what do they mean by that. well
2:06 pm
first of all the russian side has been accusing the u.s. of actually being in violation of the i.n.f. treaty itself and also they have said very much that the u.s. has been kind of communicating with russia in the language of ultimatums and that they're not listening they cite for example a meeting in mid january between russian and u.s. officials where russia said look we'll show you this missile if you want and the u.s. flat out denied that the message from moscow really being look we are open for dialogue we're open for talking and the u.s. is not listening so it's not our fault some people have speculated that the this move from the u.s. is actually aimed at china you know not part of this treaty not bound by its rules and apparently building these kind of united front almost with china in some ways even conducting joint military exercises last year but it is clear that china is also a threat to russia and we can see that when it comes to the i.n.f. treaty as well in fact russia has been saying similar things to what the u.s.
2:07 pm
is saying now for years putin has threatened as early as two thousand and seven to leave the i.n.f. treaty if other countries were not included in the treaty and he specifically mentioned china so some people here say that perhaps this u.s. exit is actually playing into russian hands that russia can basically say look it's the u.s. that's via that's that's leaving this treaty that lets leaving get another international treaty but actually this is very much playing into what they want as well all right emily sure when reporting for us from moscow thank you emily. residents of a russian town south of moscow are facing harassment and even prison sentences to raise awareness of a local garbage dump that they say is making them sick the waste is trucked in from the russian capital and authorities seem eager to keep people quiet about it. in the early hours secret service agents stormed. his apartment they
2:08 pm
rifled through the belongings of the thirty two year old office worker and her six year old daughter so they came at six o'clock in the morning six men. they went through all my personal possessions they were looking for anything illegal and it was horrible very discomforting humiliating all this just because i am fighting for our rights what is that right now this isn't the only time the secret service has confiscated computers hard drives mobile telephones and credit cards the same thing happened to fourteen other activists one of them was even taken into custody they have one thing in common they're protesting moscow's disposal of most of its waste in the city of and they believe landfill guidelines are not being followed they fear for the health of their families and friends. someone doesn't like the fact that we and other activists are demonstrating against
2:09 pm
the waste disposal and the building of a new waste containment plant we're fighting for our houses some of us have houses only one kilometer from the waste disposal zone where trash is continually being don't. in the evening the activists meet in a cafe. lawyers advise them. they discuss the next steps they refused to give up despite the secret service's attempts to scad them from the system just simply it's all connected to the protests against garbage dumps it's been a problem for a while and no one seems to be solving it and it's you know most of that while we were shooting this report in column the week to wish you'd away. from the police took our passports details of. it came out of nowhere the police have put one activist behind bars they have confiscated the computers of fourteen activists the activists have been pushing back against mountains of
2:10 pm
garbage being brought from moscow to this small town truckloads of trash from the capital every single day the activists and thousands of residents were and are worried about the health of their families now she spent eight years on death row in pakistan for blasphemy before she was freed by the country's supreme court now media reports are saying ozzie abebe has arrived in canada there's been no statement yet from the canadian government pakistan's foreign minister says it believes he is still in the country meanwhile islamic hardliners gathered in karachi again to protest against the supreme court's ruling there was sporadic violence but the number of protesters was smaller than expected. that to some other stories making headlines around the world the u.s. senate has voted to oppose president trump's plans to withdraw american troops from

2:12 pm
bank's numbers starting back made a profit of around three hundred forty million euros at the positive numbers are slightly below analyst expectations but they still market turnaround in the bank's fortunes they again respect elation about a merger with germany's smaller called mts bank but many say it would still be too small and too weak for competition our financial correspondent christiane brit's has been listening in a door to banks annual press conference in frankfurt i spoke to him earlier and asked him about the talk of a possible merger with come out fine. yeah that's that's an issue that has come up because deutsche bank's performance really isn't measuring up to international standards if you compare it and especially in german politics german finance minister all of shoals seems to favor that idea of creating a national champion a one big national band bank that can. compete in the international game but
2:13 pm
it is it is very unlikely that putting together two week banks will actually create this kind of national champion investors don't like the idea the bank itself doesn't like the idea its plan is to come to its own strength instead on the one hand you have a bank reporting a profit for the last fiscal year but it's also facing a number of scandals how is this all in fact affecting investors. well. c.e.o. kristen's even has inherited a lot of these scandals a lot. came before he even took office earlier last year last year but of course there is still a risk in in the books they addressed this here at the press conference actually today going through the various scandals that are still on the agenda that is the. money laundering issue with the bank there is still with something connected with the panama papers where we saw a raid last year in the fall of last year that also that the bank also felt in its
2:14 pm
in its earnings because that was missed opportunities and then there's the comix scandal all of these were addressed it was pointed out that they have been there for a long time but don't your bank doesn't really see a risk they're a financial risk it doesn't see its own wrongdoing trying to calm investors they are of course overall what was the feeling you got there at the press conference how is your framing its performance in twenty eighteen and is that realistic. christians say i made a really strong appearance you know appearing very confident and saying that against all odds the bank has managed to reach its goals mainly by cutting costs but the bank has also lost some of its income through that you know despite cutting six thousand jobs for example and so the stakes weren't or the stakes were high but the goals weren't high to begin with and so really
2:15 pm
a performance isn't that great especially when you compare it internationally. being made to three hundred forty millions in profit if you compare that to j.p. morgan they made thirty billion that's one hundred times more and that just doesn't just does can't compare all right our financial correspondent let's for us in frankfurt thanks so much. now the e.u. and japan have created the world's biggest free trade zone it could save european countries billions in duties each year of the two sides have agreed to remove almost all tariffs on trade in a move that will affect six hundred thirty five million people jeff to has been described as the world's largest free trade agreement it scraps levies on agricultural and industrial products and opens up the service sector and procurement. that what happens when development and growth is concentrated in cities and not in the countryside in ethiopia rapid urbanization is especially
2:16 pm
visible in the capital addis ababa now the city has seen an influx of more than a two million people in the past twenty years alone its size has almost doubled to more than four million but infrastructure like housing schools and the number of jobs on offer have not kept pace the result many children are forced to live on the streets is funny for char reports. the youngest children even six years old this boy is begging for anything just to survive he sniffing glue it beats the pain of hunger a common sight in the capital smoking square. they try to escape poverty in the countryside or problems within their families but very often these children are somebody or parents to be able hoping they may find a job and become a source of income ever being here on their own young and vulnerable they face new difficulties the last official survey put their numbers in the capital at twelve
2:17 pm
thousand but that was almost a decade ago many n.g.o.s believe today's figures chaya one of them retrack provides temporary housing for street children this place is just for girls. last year a retraction more than five hundred children and adults here when they have a. to be children again. this fourteen year old girl arrived a couple of weeks ago. my family promised i'd be able to go to school but instead i had to work. she says she was twelve when she ended up as a domestic helper working fifteen hours a day and subjected to abuse after two years she flight such stories are all too common according to a minute to dare say a social worker she helps these children cope with their trauma we encourage them
2:18 pm
to feel safe and protected and most of them came here have been passing through different out use of situations so in order to mitigate this abusive situations we learn and we believe that these stations or disprove graham's help that the girl is to become a normal person retracts main goal is to reunite children with their families and raise parents' awareness that child labor is illegal without much government assistance however there is very little small charities can do to provide long term support. these boys found work shining shoes their goal to earn their own living. i'd like to quit this work as the shoeshine or go to school and live a better life but it's not easy to get out of the situation so this is my life for now one day i want something better. as
