"Around more than 11,000 banks and other financial institutions around the world. The fine print of the sanctions was still being ironed out over the weekend officials said, as they work to limit the impact of the restrictions on other economies and European purchases of Russian energy, allies on both sides of the Atlantic also considered the swift option in 2014 when Russia invaded and annexed the Ukraine's Crimea and backed separatist forces in eastern Ukraine. Russia declared then that kicking it out of swift would be equivalent to a declaration of war, the allies criticized ever after for responding too weakly to Russia's 2014 aggression shelved the idea back then. Russia since then has tried to develop its own financial transfer system with limited success. The U.S. has succeeded before and persuading the Belgium based swift system to kick out a country Iran over its nuclear program. But kicking Russia out of swift could also hurt other economies, including those of the U.S. and key ally, Germany. Only rarely has the west and its allies fired a full salvo of its available financial weapons on a country. It on and North Korea to previous targets, had far smaller roles in the world economy while Russia, with its enormous petroleum reserves, plays a much bigger role in global trade, and parts of Europe depend on its natural gas. The disconnection from swift announced by the west on Saturday is partial, leaving Europe and the United States room to escalate penalties later. Officials said they had not fully settled on which banks would be cut off. Announcing the measures in Brussels, the EU commission president von der leyen said she would push the block to paralyze the assets of Russia's Central Bank so that its transactions would be frozen, cutting several commercial banks from swift, will ensure that these banks are disconnected from the international financial system and harm their ability to operate globally she added. Cutting banks off will stop them from conducting most of their financial transactions worldwide and effectively block Russian exports and imports she added. Getting the EU on board for sanctioning Russia through swift had been a tough process. Since EU trade with Russia amounted to €80 billion, about ten times as much as the United States, which had been an early proponent of such measures. Germany specifically had balked at the measure since it could hit them hard, but foreign minister annalena baerbock said in a statement that after Russia's shameless attack, we are working hard on limiting the collateral damage of decoupling Russia from swift so that it hits the right people. What we need is targeted, functional restrictions of swift. As another measure, the allies announced a commitment to taking measures to limit the sale of citizenship, so called golden passports that let wealthy Russians connected to the Russian government become citizens of our countries and gain access to our financial systems. The group also announced the formation this week of a transatlantic task force to ensure that these and other sanctions on Russia are implemented effectively through information sharing and asset freezes. These new sanctions which include removing several Russian banks from swift and sanctioning Russia's Central Bank are likely to cause serious damage to the Russian economy and its banking system, said clay Lowry, executive vice president of the institute of international finance. While details on how the new sanctions affect energy are still emerging, we do know that sanctions on its Central Bank will make it more difficult for Russia to export energy and other commodities..

E.U. leaders consider travel bans, faster vaccine rollout to contain coronavirus variants
"And good afternoon from rather balmy zurich. For this time of year we begin. Today's program in this part of the world where you leaders have been holding late night. Talks in a bid to coordinate their response to the spread of virus. Brussels has stopped just short of an outright ban on non essential travel between member states but warned tougher restrictions could come within days if efforts to curb the virus fail. Well i'm joined on this topic right here in zurich by monocle twenty four security correspondent beds banners. Also at the center for security studies at eight hundred are good afternoon. Beco- can often entirely Surprises out of this. But maybe before we get to surprises. Maybe just bring us up to speed what happened amongst all of those same samsung screens. That you leaders had to look into the hours this morning. Indeed was a four hour online summit as one does these days the ninth. Eu summit actually since the pandemic has broken out and well. Let's say we had a fairly good picture even beforehand. What they will discuss. And what the actual positions of countries are we had a number of statements for example by the german leadership chancellor merkel but also her chief of staff saying that they may be forced to close borders even though this is a measure they they will not really want to take. It should be a drastic measure Dustbin luxembourg's prime minister. Probably most outspoken. Saying closing the borders in two thousand and twenty was a mistake. It would be a mistake to now so these were the positions hence also know very clear decisions. It's fairly vague at this stage. What was decided that indeed non essential travel across borders should be restricted. But it's not clear to what extent by what measures where exactly was on the lion. Eu commission president only made one thing. Clear that at this stage but that may change. That should not be blanket closure of borders at least that okay. So what you're saying. The distillation of that is no no no great surprises. We knew or this is going to go Now we also seen other other measures which have of course now been adopted by member. States individually France announcing off the back of this. That they're now going to expect that people will have to have a cronut s going into the country Can't be older than seventy two hours. Of course something which almost seems to be coming standard these days as much as they want to threaten. They were talking in the language of over the next days. But we know that this is kind of a grip on on the virus with the spread of it in the next few days So was this a little bit of. I don't want to say An exercise in pr to be seen to be doing something because the eu stands for sharing the who's built Really the foundations of its brand around the notion of open borders. There is certainly an element of pr in that and understandably so because we all remember last spring when countries unilaterally without coordinating with very neighbors Closed their borders full. Well sometimes even essential travels it was. It was quite strict at times We all remember that and now obviously the eu is trying to to appear that. They've learned from that that they want to coordinate on this. And that's why this summit has the border issue on agendas strongly to actually prevent countries from implementing measures. But as you just hinted these national measures are still really important where the france opposes the requirement to have a negative. Pcr tests for covid. That actually makes a huge difference. For whether belgians or luxembourg ins spanish people across the border to go grocery shopping or apply for jobs and so on so we still have these national measures. They have to be national also. Make sense it's it cannot all be e you wide but certainly there was a political push to appear like there's coordination. We're only seeing that in coming few days of an all. These suggestions that have been made will actually be put into detail and so it all comes down to the detail how this will be implemented.

U., two degree now Britain would point out and rightly so some would say that actually if there is any part of the two sides who are used to subsidizing their industries, it's more likely to be countries like France and Italy than it needs to be the UK or indeed Germany for example, who just failed out Lufthansa to the tune of ten billion euros I mean the UK hasn't yet bailed out any of Big Airlines then disease you have governance How to settle speech future future disputes in essence the EU, has conceded that it's no longer going to be the European Court of Justice and they're trying to work out to kind of independent tradition if you like. And then finally, there's this kind of issue of fishing which economically is not important either to the EU or the UK in the sense it doesn't really make much of any countries economies to large degree, but it is politically symbolic. Ephraim. Brexit. As it will is what Brexit was all of out retaining sheesh water and also some European countries. It's incredibly symbolic importance at French fishermen, for example, or at pretty significant force in France and Emmanuel macron is staring down election in the not too distant future. So that is an issue. That actually is always the most difficult of issues because as as a Britain wants to gain back control of its waters, the EU still wants to be allowed to fish in those waters and it suggesting that if it cannot will. Then Britain is not going to be able to sell its fish to the rest of Europe and that is by far the largest markets. So shortly, collapse the whole deal on fishing. Think not though there are genuine concerns that it could be at the key issue. In the trade talks over the next couple of weeks, not least of all, because as become this to the issue in from both sides that for Britain. It's very symbolic as I say what Brexit is, they are absolutely determined. That they can have you know European fishermen essentially in the seas for years and years to come. Katrina to the fish they just think that is fundamentally unacceptable. It is not in essence taking back control. For the EU are equally determined. That if Britain wants to gain access to it single market by selling fish and eighty I, think it's eighty percent of British Fisher exploited in sixty percents. In, total those to the rest of the EU then. You're. Not, GONNA be able to sell your fish and you can have all your efficient chips he wants, but they'll have to be British people are going to eat them and not the EU, and they would also point that actually half of the so-called Bush's boats that fish in fresh waters at the moment are actually forward. So in practical terms, would it make that much difference I think the compromise, the them at may well come, and with this idea of quotas every year that potentially will start where we all now and year after year decrease. On a negotiated faces a bit like Norway has dumb but for Emmanuel macron fishing is a key key factor in all of this. Simply because you know French, fishermen are a potent political force but for the countries like Germany. In essence fishing's not very important and they would be very, very disappointed when push on for the deal to collapse on that single issue. So I mean what happens next and is a no deal Nella a probability rather than A. So. When you talk to people here and is being a whole range of MVP's and official yesterday, they were putting it at a probability of sixty percents. Gene essentially, that will be no deal, which is point stalk in many ways given the fact that we are getting into the game and we really all because time is to Michelle Volley ticking in this process I think what will happen next though is that they will conclude. Leaders at tomorrow that enough progress has been made and the talk should continue. I expect the British will accept that and talks will continue for the next couple of weeks. up until. Either the end of this month or the start of next. But then a deal is going to have to be done or essentially both sides have to accept the will be no deal because ultimately if there is to be a deal, it is a massive. Weighty Hefty document that has to be translated into all the official languages of the EU. EU Paul, we'll have to vote on the British parliament, some national parliaments to and so that decision will have to be pretty soon at the start of the next month because ultimately, they'll only have up until the end of to send the. It's because Boris Johnson his always all. And that he will not extend beyond December thirty. First, we've heard of course that before I think this time that really is a hard deadline and so at the Mo- wind, you'd have to conclude or less things substantially change that you know no deal. Is a real. Possibility, but probability, how is the British parliament reacting to this brinkmanship? Well, there's this. Thing is when we kind of what? It's not weird actually, it's probably not surprising the tool. But, it's not really consuming European on British national politics. At the moment clearly, we're in the middle of a pandemic. Clearly everyone's focusing on not just the fact that there is a second surge affecting almost every corner of Europe and deed every corner of the British isles. And Other increasing restrictions, talks about lockdown. So not not anyone's really talking about Brexit I think. Boris. Johnson's going to take enough majority that no deal is not good to trouble him like it. It was last year when there was a possibility that the government collapse on the issue I don't think that's GonNa happen this time round for the genuine concerns in Britain about what this will mean. Already, the government is already having to spend millions and millions of pounds to get a border posts. Customs checks to employ people essentially to work on that border from the first of January and no matter what the trade will be there will be extra checks a respectable. What happens

They say they're very close to this because good progress is being made in the talks this week and in previous weeks Despite this legal round that you talk about, however, I was talking to one senior U diplomat last night. They said that although the talks had been quite constructive It was not an imminent breakthrough and they're not going down this tunnel yet so I could get be interesting to see what happens after the two chief negotiators meet this morning in Brussels in a couple of hours. Time will listen with interest what some statements they put out afterwards. This'll legal action. You know, we've been speaking about against the UK with EU Commission, saying the British legislation, which seeks to override parts of the Brexit treatment, they call it a full contradiction of you know what the British government had earlier said it was going to do. So is this Could some people see this is a bit of a distraction to the whole negotiations. But I think it's definitely soured the mood of the negotiations, but I think we've got this weird jeweled process at the moment. So on the one hand, both sides say they do want to deal and those trade talks are continuing. But at the same time, I think each side has to Sort of keep show not be shown to be relenting. And so EU threatened to take legal action unless the UK abandoned its plans to rip up part of the divorce deal that Don't forget was agreed between the two sides last year so that you is pursuing this legal action, but I think both sides are actually giving themselves a bit of time. Legal action would take months and months and months, and they hope that the differences between the two sides, notably on the role of Northern Ireland in the future on fishing around the British coast. And on government subsidies. Those differences could be smoothed over in the coming weeks so that they don't have to go down a pretty ugly legal route, he said. They're giving each other a bit of time. But do they actually have that time? Given that the transition period this post Brexit transition period is almost running out. Yeah, that's a very good point. Actually, they're making us much time as they possibly can. Because as you say, absolutely right. There is a hard deadline with Brexit and I know lots of times in the past. We've said, we know this is a really important moment. Then it comes and then it goes. The thing here is that at the end of this year, there needs to be a deal or not, because the UK obviously left the European Union at the start of this year, But it's been in the so called transition period. Where is bean? You know, going by some of lots of its rules? When that ends that needs to be a decision made it can't go on and on and on. So the thinking is they need to get a trade deal, probably this month, maybe in the first week of November because they need to give it enough time for it to be passed by the European Parliament. And by the British Parliament, So you're absolutely right Time is not on their side. Nick. Thank you very much. Indeed. A colleague Nick Beak in Brussels..

I asked what she thinks about the process, taking so long thinking who's jealous of Asia. Big Jimmy this insubordinate every day we asked. When are we going to start talking about the really issues, she says, But listen, Afghans, we've been at war for 40 years. What's a couple more days to start talking about peace for the world change a 40. The last couple of weeks, the world has been bringing you. Coverage of the crisis that migrants are facing on the Greek island of Lesbos, 12,500 migrants and asylum seekers lost their homes lost pretty much everything after a fire raised the Moria refugee camp there. The European Union is watching closely had a handle asylum and migration has been a divisive issue in the you Today, though, the You tried to put forward a solution a mandatory pack that would affect all 27 you countries. You Commission President Ursula Vanderlei and called it a sustainable solution. Migration is complex. The old system to deal with it in Europe no longer works. So what's in that plan and what impact wouldn't have across Europe? The world's Lydia Amanda lied. Who joins us from Lesbos in Greece? What exactly would this pack to require countries to do? Lydia? It would require that all countries in the you pitch in to help manage migration and asylum in some way so countries would either have to take people in relocate migrants and refugees to their countries. Or if they don't want to do that they'd be required to help return those whose applications are rejected to their home countries. Initially, Marco There had been some talk of instituting mandatory quotas so each country having to host a certain number of migrants and refugees, But some countries, a Congress in Poland have strongly opposed that. So what came out today was a compromise. What else is the EU Commission proposing to do to the asylum process? Yeah, A couple. Other things they want to do is one speed up the asylum procedures so that once people make it to the U, they're not waiting here indefinitely. And another thing they want to do is beef up border security so tough and screenings and checks at the border and not just within the you but at the countries where people are coming from, from the perspective of the EU Commission. What is the intention of the plan? Well, Marco, There were two words that commissioners kept repeating at the press conference today, Solidarity and responsibility. So you commission Vice President Sena's. He's Greek, said it's unthinkable that the U still doesn't have a cohesive migration and asylum policy. We have learned the lessons off 2016 and the failure of the European Union established foster an agreement then Is very present with us. That's why we need to start with everyone on board and everyone around the table. So he's talking about you know, Europe at the height of the migrant crisis in 15, 2020 16 and in terms of responsibility commissioner said today that managing migration in asylum shouldn't fall to just a few countries. So for years now countries here in southern Europe like Greece, where I am have been on the front line of this crisis because of their geography. They've been disproportionately affected by the influx of migrants. And they've accused Northern European countries which also by the way, tend to be richer of not doing their part. So this pact also tries to address that and to take some of the burden off of Greece and other countries in this region. What do you hearing from advocacy groups and NGOs? What's their reaction to the C U proposal? Many people are not pleased at all. With this pact, they say, totally misses the mark. I spoke earlier today with Marisa Ryan. She heads the U. Office for Oxfam, which is an international group of 20 NGOs. What's coming out from the commission today looks like the lowest common denominator for us, and we're seeing much more emphasis on returns. We're seeing moves towards ensuring that overseas development assistance is spent on border control, rather than poverty eradication on we have no guarantees. What is being announced, is actually going to protect and make a meaningful difference in the lives of people who are fleeing for their lives. Lydia's You think about this plan the use proposed. And you think about some of the people who lost their homes and the fire of Moria. I mean, does it feel like the you plan could be what they need? Well, from what I've seen on the ground, Marco Ever since the Moriah fire 12,000 people were on the streets. They didn't have basic things like shelter. Food water. They've now been moved into a new camp. And they tell me that a lot of those conditions are still ongoing. There are now hundreds of cases of Corona virus in the camp. So I think right now, a lot of these people are thinking about one having their immediate needs met and also having their asylum applications processed so they can leave this island. A lot of people have been here for more than a year. Andre just want to leave. The world's Lydia. Amanda leaders speaking with us from Lesbos, Greece, Lydia thanks very much. Thank you, Marco. It's already getting colder here in Boston. That means a lot more time indoors soon for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere heading inside, it's kind of worrisome to think about how the corona virus could spread. The venting transmission indoors was the focus of our discussion on Facebook Live this week in collaboration with Harvard's Th Chance School of Public Health. The worlds Alana Gordon moderated the conversation and joins May I gotta tell you, Alana, there seems to be a lot of confusion around Corona virus transmission these days. Especially when it comes to aerosols. Remind us First of all, what are aerosols. So, Marco, These are really small particles there like 1 to 10 microns in size. They can remain suspended in the air. When you breathe amount, travel beyond 6 ft and then held by others. This is compared to the bigger droplets like when you sneeze. And this began, the CDC posted an update to the website and said, yes, this needs to be taken seriously. Joanne is a professor of exposure assessment science at Harvard School of Public Health..
Brexit: What happens now
"At the beginning of two, thousand and twenty it was widely assumed the years news agenda in the UK would be dominated by the rancorous torturous divisive and tedious subject of Brexit. Those were the days happily for those of us who had grown weirdly nostalgic for it. What one thing another brexit is. Self. Evidently back in the headlines as the UK's final departure looms on December thirty first British ministers. Now, apparently plan to try rewriting the EU withdrawal agreement, they agreed last year you may recall this being presented at the time as the ticket to the sunlit our plans and so forth. Well, joining me with more on. This is the political journalist and author Terry Stephanie. Terry, as far as it's possible to boil it down. What is the big idea here? It's Boiling down I suppose the big idea is that a Britain the UK is. Having, more talks with the e this week. At the same time, there's what's called the UK Internal Market Bill, which is going to go before parliament this week. Now that parliament is back and it's due to be published, and we're told that this bill might according to the first reports of this in the Financial Times, eliminate the legal force of parts of the withdrawal agreement I-. Overriding the treaty that has been signed and ratified by everybody a regarding what's going to happen to do with Northern Ireland and its future relationship, and this is being greeted with a fair deal of horror because it seems to suggest that before any deal is donald before no deal happens Britain may actually go back on something that everybody has already signed an agreed to. The difficulty here a difficulty here as I understand it is that you want sowing the treaty you can't really on sign it can you? Know you can't. The reaction to this again, this is this is something that might happen. I suppose. One of the questions is whether this is all part of the UK government talking its own book ahead of future, Negotiations Boris. Johnson saying that we must have definitely have an agreement by the fifteenth of October and being innocent blustering and talking about prospering mightily in the future. But yeah. An international treaty is international law and the European Commission, is being quite calmly so far in a on the surface at least saying. I trust that Britain will continue to abide by this and we trust that they will implement the withdrawal agreement. Michelle Bonnier saying that everything that has been signed must be respected but yes, international law. That was signed into law by this parliament after the election certainly still stands what you're alluding to. There is a statement made in the last hour. So by US Levonne, delay in the president of the EU Commission very thinly veiled faint subtext of irritation. Do you get the sense that the UK's government might be overestimating the degree to which the EU is still terrifically interested in any of this? I think you know they the usual has to be interested in it. I think. It's possibly a there ever estimating the degree to which the EU doesn't see these tactics coming because there has been quite a lot of talk over the last week about the likelihood of their being a no deal agreement and. British negotiators really saying you know we'll be we'll be fine with the no deal. Don't worry about this. You know we we can. We'll. We'll go ahead and do this and I think there's an element of Brussels sitting back and looking at it and saying, okay, you go. Ahead you go. Do what you want to do. It's. It's sort of slightly reminds me of apparent with a recalcitrant trial and we trust the to do the right thing and you know we understand that you really want to do the right thing. Don't you and just letting them in a slightly letting them walking towards towards. Well on the subject of the UK doing the right thing eventually over we are, of course, fast running out of eventually to recap those dates December thirty. First, the UK's transition period is over October. Fifteenth is when Boris Johnson says a deal needs to be done by if you just think about this, not so much as an analyst. e you affairs but just thinking about it as a British political journalist doesn't not strike you that the likelihood is if you judge the career in character of Boris Johnson that he will at the last minute take whatever's the easiest way out and claim a great triumph because that's pretty much what he's always done. Yes I. Mean Boris Johnson has always been as we know particularly even his decisions on which side to support in the referendum he's looked at both the options had a back pocket version of both things, and then done something at the last minute I mean he? No, he's he's a journalist by training. This is how we work. He come come up to do things at the last minute. The difficulty is there are lots of things that can't be done at the last minute not least signing a huge international agreement, not least getting UK borders ready for the for the transition, getting all the customs officials that you need Also the economic impact of this. There have been statements from retailers recently saying that you do realize that if there's no deal agreement, we will have tariffs that will effectively increase the price of food and You know. We don't know what state the economy is going to be in coming out of Cova, but we can imagine that it's not going to be very good and one of the questions is despite Boris Johnson's talk about Britain prospering mightily, how much more of a shock can the UK economy standard? It's those kind of questions not least as well. The relationship with Northern Ireland with the rest of Ireland the relationship with Scotland the keep coming back to bite people and people keep warning about it but on the other hand, the government sort. Of trying to appeal to its own backbenchers I suppose, and also saying look we can. We'll be able to do more in terms of government investment state aid without the telling us what to do, and we will be able to make our own rules as they keep saying and government ministers today suggesting that that could be a price worth paying just on the subject they're finally of the actual practical preparations. This is what strikes me. It'd be interested in in your view on this might actually end up governing what the government ends up deciding because. This was raised last week, and we talked about this on the program by associations of holy is in freight companies just basically making the point that the account be no deal brexit because the infrastructure and the personnel and all the other stuff necessary to deal with it simply does not exist and sure as heck isn't going to be conjured into being in the next two and a half months. No? I mean I was in Kent last week where people were talking about this, there's a site that local people had expected was going to be used for an Amazon Amazon warehouse that they now think is likely to be used for a customs checkpost and there's there's not really anything there the state and yes, you know people saying that training the customs officials let alone the the software, the hardware whatever else you need in place is going to take more time than we have. But you know things have been cobbled together. If you look at how we respond to the coronavirus crisis in the last few months, and perhaps there's an expectation that these kinds of things can somehow be becomes it up but it's not going to be easy and come January. We may see the downside of that terrorist. Asked me. Thanks as

"90. Now here are Todd and done. Good morning. Todd Jeffries Don Prior added together. It's the tide of Don show. We've got the rush update straight ahead and you heard they're in Patrick's news. The Austin Human Rights Commission is demanding that citizens be able to choose their police chief commission member dated whites who has publicly called for the You know the full dismantling, you know of the Austin Police Department. It says public pressure should be applied to a P D to force out chief Manly and have him replaced with someone voted in by the public. So there you go. This is something that the Austin Human Rights Commission is pushing the Austin City Council towards I would think that would require a I mean, that's not something you could do immediately. But those are the demands of the activists that are currently on the human rights commission here in Austin. Well, this should not be a political position. We vote for the sheriff and that that shouldn't be happening. Because how many of us really know what exactly quote what qualifications we really need and Ah, we need someone who comes up. Through the ranks who has plenty of experience. The only people who would know who would be best for that position would be a P D themselves. If you've got a police chief, there was an elected official, a politician. And they're going to make decisions based on politics. Absolutely right? Not what individuals or what communities need the most horrible. We've seen that happen with the election of Travis County D A s over the years where they refused to enforce certain laws. Yeah, And we're all guaranteed equal protection under the law. When you throw a politician in the seat, I don't know. I just have a problem with that. I don't think it's a good idea. Chic. Manley is a classic example of how this should work. He worked his way up through the ranks. He's been with him for years and years and years. They knew what they were dealing with. He's a known quantity. They know his experience. They know what he brings to the table. How the heck is the general public's going to know really everything they knew need to know about that. Candidate. I think police Chief Manley would probably I don't know this for sure. But this is just a gut feeling that he would probably like to just go ahead and retire after 30 years on the job. I wouldn't blame him and and I don't know that he's never told me that is just a just a gut feeling. But I have a feeling the reason he's still staying in offices because can you imagine what the search would be like for a new police chief in this climate in this election cycle? I mean every police chief that has any kind of qualification across the country. Would be so scrutinized. Why would they even want to apply for a job to run this police department where you got the city Council that's looking to dismantle exactly right? Yeah. What? What City Council but at least in Austin, you know, Human rights Commission. It's looking to dismantle and listen, if it comes down to that, if it's going to have to be someone, maybe we're going to be forced into having to elect somebody to do this and elect some kind of a politician. Because I don't know about. No, no cheap with any experience. No appreciable experience whatsoever is going to want to come to Austin Tax and baby. So so District six kids account.

I think he is an immature. It's really immature demand. Those kind of changes in media is an amateur. Give me my cookies now. Yeah, He's got a big chip on his shoulder man. Well, Flanagan says that change needs to happen now, and he feels Kronk is acting as a barrier because ultimately he gets to choose Who leads the Austin Police Department. So there you go. That's you know, that's Spencer. Kronk is the man that wanted to cut 11 million from the budget and not the 1 50 that the City Council pushed It is 609 and time for the rush update for years, public health officials and other know it alls have told Americans to stop eating so much meat, they said.

The idea that people should eat less beef, less pork, less processed meat is not backed up by any credible science. In other words, it's bull. The scientist said that if there are any health benefits from eating less red meat, they're so small that they're barely measurable, a tiny blip that does not merit telling people to stop eating beef. Now, folks, how often have we been through this? We were told Coffee was bad force that bacon's going to kill us. Stay waiting. Coconut oil oat bran that stuff experts hammered the public on the latest scientific research turned out to be totally bogus.

Is that the states like the Netherlands and Austria kind of being forced to come with their use in a more direct way, they're not able to hide behind the opposition of Britain anymore as they have in the past, and you have alliances of smaller states rather than big blocking ones. Is it about the amount in total, or is it more about how that amount will be dispersed specifically whether it would be a grant or a loan which would need to be paid back at some future point? Yeah, it's both so there's a few things on the table. There's the common e you budget seven years. The Party Gotten Ryan to discussing then there's the recovery fund. Which is this one saw?

U. is introducing a rescue plan or roadmap today to alleviate the pressure on the economy I asked our Europe correspondent Gavin Lee how the road map could help the tourist industry the three elements to it basically it's about in the words of the the commission spokesperson at a briefing but I've had the rights of individuals for the need to rest relaxation fresh chat and see families in other countries not depends of course on the situation the commission says of how bad the extent of the virus is spreading whether it remains fairly common there isn't a second spike but what we're looking at the setting out a roadmap for tourism and travel and holidays as of this summer so some of twenty twenty I know what's and a couple of the areas includes making sure of course it's slow it's progressive there will be some kind which told of guys that if you're going on holiday somewhere in Europe there should be an indication of what all the coveted prevention strategies in each country that you might go to what all the hotel strategies and also there will be a recommendation the individual hotels start to advertise put themselves on the market in what they can offer your average tourist and holiday maker in terms of conflict prevention cleanliness ability to to sanitize things like that but that should be part of the you know the new holiday approaches for example of these old recommendations so that's one of them and the other thing is about analogs and number of countries fourteen countries have said that because of the pressure off the adult industry give you an exam well I am in Brussels the main advice here Brussels airlines have axed are they going to access a quarter will jobs a thousand staff will go into the open a third of the allied fleet will go as well all the giving money as cash back for people who need refunds for cancelled flights because of coverage the idea was to give vouchers no the EU commission will push back in the meeting today to say no you can make vouchers more attractive more appealing but that should be fundamentally principle of the rights of of somebody to have the money back instead so that service a couple of elements that are looking at as part of the the summer travel plan today so if you are within the E. U. and you want to go on holiday can you go anywhere this is a really good points on this is there are two words or phrases that you might still hear more more one is social trouble bubble a social travel bubble the second is a travel corridor so for example this Friday the Baltic states already putting the borders to each other so Estonia Latvia Lithuania what's been relatively few cases along with Finland already booked to travel in and out of each other's countries so for example Estonia relies on tourists from Finland forty percent of its tourists come up from that so this is a big thing and that will mean free movement for all of those people the Swiss national broadcast today have suggested that they will announce later on that the internal borders between Switzerland Austria Germany and France would also reopen for total travel between them so the idea is that that you you've got almost a either social bubble of of those countries innocent people in those countries going on holiday that briefly travel corridors was put to the E. U. yesterday by my Danish Coley there's been talk of Denmark for example saying that they've had a few cases could I have a simple flight path to Greece was also a few cases the commission says that will be up to member states but they will not recommend it and they would also not recommend quarantine if you fly somewhere but you should have to stay fourteen days in a hotel they said there should be no need for that with the way prevention for coverage I should in theory take place on the grounds of get home sometimes as washing it

New EU chief takes helm amid rising suspicion of China
"New president of the EU Commission also funded lion will have spent her first night in office last tonight. Having already we think held urgent telephone call with Beijing. The expose last week on the existence of Detention Kemper Muslim leaguers has brought China's track record on human rights right to the top of our funding lines to do list. Let's look at what she in. The Commission can actually do. Let's hear from Isabel Hilton. The editor of China Dialogue. Welcome back the studio Isabel. Doing no of this phone call to take place between Oslo Funder Lion and Beijing yesterday. We don't although she did she has made Much of Saying that it would so I imagine it would also imagine she'd get pretty dusty response from Beijing. What was the intentionally the? The purpose of the phone call was literally. That's really her first day in office yesterday on the Sunday indeed. I think that there is a feeling in Europe That China has been. It's sort of general after say trend against China in the last few months in in a concern in Europe that China has too much power and abusing its power to undermine global norms including on human rights and that Europe needs to take more bust view. So I think that what we're seeing in that commitment over these really appalling abuses That you know that's what we're seeing. A new commission come in with the determination to stand up to China just remind us of what was said what was revealed last week in this expose. On the treatment of weakened Muslim there was a cache of documents. Som Four hundred which went to the New York Times A further batch that went to an international consortium of Investigative Journalism Journalists and although Ah the existence of the camp said being extremely extensively documented for more than two years now the detail of the organization and including many a a personal and telling details which included in. What do you tell a university student going home for the summer? WHO finds that? He's Oh her entire family his disappeared so it was the kind of meticulous rupp very chilling planning State directed absolutely top down To to to lock up one in ten or as far as we know of the weaker population so although the camps were known about. There's something about you know the revelation of the of the of the bones of this policy that that made people deeply deeply uncomfortable and actually highlighted the degree to which China has go away with this so far. Is Anybody greatly surprised. However about these great revelations I think many people suspected that there was a but the fact is as you say as you've been saying continually there is this buildup of evidence against China that it is Going against the beliefs Explo- uh ex- exploiting the global norms. It's sort of surprises. That surprised me that as underline sort of took it upon herself to make a fresh. I should tempted something that everybody sort of knew about anyway. Well it's true that the camps were known about because they say that the detail of the documents Really confronted Particularly Europe actually with them with the inaction although we have in fact through the year Seen a growing effort particularly by Europe to confront China over Xinjiang at the The Council on Human Rights the UN Council Counseling Human Rights Meeting in Geneva There was a letter signed by more than twenty countries calling for China to release the detainees China has put in an enormous effort in the last few years to undermining the principle of universal human rights and particularly at the UN. So for example China has been trying to advance the the premise that notable rights to equal and the right to development and state sovereignty so victory entry trump's individual human rights and that goes directly against the universal principle. It it implies that poor people Don't have rights or or don't don't desire rights which is which is nonsense and that that's completely any it's an important breach and China has managed to mobilize countries search which have An economic dependence on China to support them in Geneva in mounted very well documented campaign trying to shut out civil society actors NGOs who might criticized trying to put in a government sponsored NGOs who would sing the praises raises of China's policies and explicitly saying two countries which Had any kind of economic dependence on China there quite a lot now that if they showed stop and criticized then you know deals would not go well if they showed up and praised then they would benefit so you know. There is no doubt that China has managed to Marshal Marshall a lot of opinion on its side in the has been remarkable silence for example or endorsement for many Muslim countries. They have not criticized at China. I know I on on locking up a million Muslims for being Muslim and that's pretty remarkable So you know. We are confronted with with the situation situation in which if these rights are defended. It's come down to the European Union Australia and Canada and even the United States is not reliable ally in this so I think that for the new commission the European Union. It's a bit of a moment saying do defend the system or not. What does the e you you do? Though in terms of concrete action I mean we've seen a trade war bursts out between the United States and China and neither side into becoming coming out well from it now. The European Union's Heft when it comes to trade is enormous but you can see immediately the any sanctions that you might put on. China will be met with equally tough measures. I think that I doubt that we would see a trade war. Exactly I mean it's true that the European European Union has is an enormously important trading block for China's largest trade partner but European Union. Although doesn't speak because one over trade Except for you know the kind of You wide regulations but individual countries tend to make their own make pursue their own interests with China But the fact that the e U is willing publicly to criticize China the e you could for example push at the UN. I'm for sanctions against individuals. Who are involved with this trade? It could name and shame companies that are dealing That are installing technologies in Xinjiang And in fact it could under the principles of of human rights and business. It could sanction companies over human human rights abuses. So it's not without weapons and and I think you know put China China very much dislikes being called out on human and rights abuses in a moment when it's trying to present itself as the benign actor On the global On the global scene so simply having you who are being vigorous in terms of its criticism changes the atmosphere and gives cover to some other countries which might wish to but don't quite have the courage ridged criticize China. Finally we have the member-state ambassadors who already in Beijing being invited to Xinjiang which is where the majority if we miss them live at the beginning of next year can anything be settled on then. yes Although these visits of course are heavily managed and it wouldn't be the first time time we've had official visits to Xinjiang in which The visitors the official visit confronted with people who sing and dance and say that they're happy to be there so I didn't think anyone. Anyone has enormous illusions about about what you're seeing And I think the you made its point by By giving the Sakharov prize the alarm toady a who is a weaker intellectual as an economist at a university in In Beijing who in twenty fourteen was sent to in jail for life had all his assets confiscated leaving his family destitute in a in a savage sentence against a man who had always been of voice of reason and moderation and who was well known to journalists and indeed to ambassadors and human rights workers So I I think that you know laying down these markers important The visit will you know I. I don't know quite what such visit will achieve except that it's important wouldn't go on insisting on visits but I think that as I say The ambassador isn't Aachen have many illusions that the people that they speak to a free to speak Or they will uncover any great surprises. It will be very very carefully prepared

Bloomberg's Bryan Curtis reports. Now from Hong Kong officials from the two countries are discussing how to dress currency policy in a memorandum of understanding this ammo, you would form the basis of a broader deal. It does raise the question though, as to whether this aligns with US calls in the past for China to be more market-driven with its currency. In Hong Kong. I'm Bryan Curtis. Bloomberg daybreak Europe. Now, we're going to delve deeper now with Wes Goodman who joins us. Out of Singapore. He's from the markets live team there west greater violas, always. So the UN is rising after this report of the US asking China to keep the currency stable. Why is it also leading to a rally in other Asian currencies? It's spilling over in other words. Right. Hi, marcus. Good morning everyone. Yeah. You know? I think that when the US is asking for a stable currency. That's a little bit of a code word. You know, what the US really like is stronger Yuan because then China can buy more more stuff from America can buy more of America's exports and since the benchmark for other Asian currencies. You know, there was a broad rally today. The mentioned South Korean stocks are doing well and in the currency market.

You've been writing about this. Why is this important? Yeah. You know, if you're a ban. Geek like me, look at the term premium. This is one measure one barometer of demand in the bond market. And by this measure investor demand for long bonds is at a record high. So this is all part of the global decline in bond yields caused by central banks turning dovish, including the big three central banks, which would be the fed the European Central Bank and the Bank of Japan. So yes, the term premium suggests demand is at a record high. This suggests that this year's bond rally has has more to go or maybe has legs than thanks so much Wes Goodman for bringing it's up to date with your views this morning regarding the markets, Wes Goodman, they're out of Singapore.
