"Republic of Kosovo, once all countries, not just the hundred odd that have recognized it already, to recognize its independence and recognize its full statehood. You can't operate as a state if people aren't respecting very simple things like vehicle number plates so it's symbolic for them. It's also symbolic for Serbia. If you relinquish license plates and accept that ethnic Serbs in Kosovo have to drive around with republic of Kosovo number place, you want step further to permanently relinquishing any idea that you have control over Kosovo and the Kosovo is part of your country. So this is a big thing here. But as Joseph barrell, the EU foreign policy chief has said, what they need to do now is move on from this seemingly trivial dispute and get back to the real issue of the full normalization of relations that negotiations have been going on for years. They've been badly stalled and it's not in the interests of either Kosovo or Serbia because they don't make progress in their march towards European Union membership, in which case with Serbia, they're already in full negotiations. And so does this now mean with this agreement that violence is off the table and is there still a UN present there? Well, there's all sorts of international forces there, Georgina. We have 4000 NATO troops in a peacekeeping force called K four. And this is why the claims that there could be violence. You know, you had to not quite taken with a pinch of salt, salt, but you had to understand where that violence might have come from. It wasn't going to come from official Serbian forces because there's no way that Serbia would undertake any sort of military action in Kosovo because it would come straight into conflict with those NATO forces. So that's not going to happen. However, there are a lot of guns everywhere in the western Balkans as a relic of both Yugoslav times and the breakup of Yugoslavia in the 1990s. And everybody is quite aware that when tensions are running high, things can go sideways and that wouldn't be a good thing for anybody to happen. So it was very important that this immediate cause of tension was resolved. And I think we'll now see all the steps which were taken over the past few weeks like ethnic Serbs withdrawing from Kosovo state institutions, ethnic Serbs and Kosovo's parliament resigning. All of that now will be rode back and we'll have a period of relative calm, probably. Guy, thank you very much indeed. That's guide along there. And this is the globalist.

I'm Michael Barr, this is Bloomberg, Paul, Lisa. All right, Michael Barr, thank you so much. We appreciate that. So Lisa Vince Cigna, Bloomberg market strategies. He is definitely in that camp that says, things are going to rally late this year into next year because inflation is kind of taking care of itself and the fed doesn't need to be as hawkish. That trade, that feels way out of consensus now. Maybe a month or two ago there might have been a strand out there, but it just feels way out of consensus now. I think that's a fair categorization, especially after the CPI report that didn't show that at all. And I was actually just speaking with Jonathan Miller of Miller and Samuel L, which is this housing research company and he was saying there's still this incredible demand and that just because prices are slowing down doesn't mean they're going to decline and just because rents are not increasing at the same pace. Does not mean that they're going to go down and it would cause it would need a recession. So you're not seeing even some of the most interest rate sensitive areas significant read through to lower inflation. I don't know where that would come from. Where are all why is everybody coming to New York City? Why can't you get an apartment? Nobody's working in midtown. I don't get the dynamic. Our kids coming into the city renting at these exorbitant rates, only to work from home. Have you been to the city on the weekend? Yes. Have you crazy? Yes. How crowded it is? Yes. People want to be around other people, right? I mean, at the end of the day, after moving to places that were more rural and they want to live in other places. And did you see the report that there is now the highest number of people going into the office? I noticed it. Tuesday Wednesday Thursday. Yeah, exactly. People though are not coming in on Mondays and Fridays. No, so I can always get a seat there. But anyway, interesting, that dynamic is midtown Manhattan comes back. What's that? Are you anti? Anti living in the city? No, no, not at all. I just wonder, like, I lived in a city because I worked in the city, but now if I'm only going to work in two or three days in the office, it just kind of seems like an odd dynamic, but that's what the kids are doing. I know the rents are crazy. And everybody's coming back. So that's good. We'll see. Got the markets a little bit

"Left that eye as president used every chance to stop the war Even a small one Meanwhile The Washington Post has reporting Belarus is preparing to send soldiers into Ukraine in support of Russia as soon as today Now the EU has agreed to send €450 million of military aid to Ukraine for lethal weapons Foreign policy chief Joseph barrell says the package may include supplying fighter jets to the Ukrainian air force It is the first time the European Union has ever supplied arms to a country at war Member states that do not want to contribute lethal weapons will be able to abstain or make a parallel contribution of non lethal aid The European Union also now said it would close its airspace to Russia in an attempt to further isolate Putin The action applies to any plane owned charted or otherwise controlled by a Russian person That means airspace will be closed to the private jets of oligarchs leasing firms are facing the challenge of recording jetliners from Russian airlines as sanctions threaten carrier's ability to fund and operate rented planes And finally if we just have a quick look at some wall sanctions that are being put into place BP is getting out of Russia the major oil the oil major will exit its roughly 20% shareholding is rosneft one of the single biggest foreign investments in the country Bloomberg's Hannah George reports BP will take a financial hit of up to $25 billion after coming under growing pressure from the UK government for its alliance with rosneft The surprise move is the latest sign of how far western powers are willing to go to punish Russia for the invasion of Ukraine BP has been in Russia for three decades and just weeks ago a staunchly defending its presence there The company didn't say whether it's planning to sell the stake or simply walk away Any buyer would face a tightening web of sanctions that would make a transaction extremely difficult In London I'm Hannah George Bloomberg daybreak Europe Global news 24 hours a day on air and on Bloomberg quicktake powered by more than 2700 journalists and analysts in more than 120 countries I'm Leanne gorons this is Bloomberg a Caroline Thank you so much Leon garen so with our top story around Ukraine this morning for more on the market reaction let's bring in markets live editor Heather Berg What have been some of the notable things about ruble trading of course at the start of the open for the ruble it has absolutely slumped again Yeah the ruble opened a percent lower in Moscow But offshore trading you had down 30% There's two things that seem to that might help defend the currency The bank of Russia raised the key rate to 20% from 9.5 Also Russia is forcing companies to sell the ruble via selling their foreign reserves So we'll see if that can help stem the route but obviously there's a lot of uncertainty The other thing to note is really the dollar has come out as the currency haven It's rising against almost every peer is fallout from the sanctions and the decision to exclude Russian lenders from the swift messaging system Could result in miss payments in the international banking system and spur monetary authorities to reactivate daily operations to supply the market with dollars so that Korea enforce the dollar haven Yes absolutely And interesting to note also Heather that the Euro is down close to 1% because of the economic impact maybe of these sanctions on Europe And then the neighboring countries around Ukraine their currencies also weakening against the Euro and the dollar So there's lottie the coruna the forest for example much weaker So we're watching those two One of the potential implications then of higher commodity prices Heather Yeah so oil wheat palladium is all jumping Brent soaring above a hundred a barrel again on fears of supply disruptions And with oil OPEC plus might have a trickier task when it meets on Wednesday to kind of discuss its supply pricing for April on the other thing is gold has replaced treasuries of the haven of choice because the surging oil prices have kind of diminished the appeal of bonds and also you're seeing European net gas soaring again So those are some of the things we'll be watching today Okay yeah gold up by 1% now Thanks so much Heather for being with me for your time market commentary and analysis checkout markets live MLI V on your Bloomberg terminal So back to the latest on the ground Ukrainian officials are reporting that blasts have been heard in the capital of Kyiv this morning it follows satellite images earlier They showed a convoy of Russian military vehicles some three miles long outside the city Ukrainian president volodymyr zelensky has agreed to talks with the Russians on his country's border with Belarus Let's cross over now live to Moscow for coverage What is the latest then about the Russian invasion Good morning Well right now things are starting pretty hot and heavy in the morning The Russian Central Bank hiked the key rate to more than doubled its 20% and they've introduced what are basically capital controls telling all exporters that they need to sell 80% of their dollars that they get Into rubles And if you look at the Russian market the rubles frozen at 90 which 90 per dollar which makes you think that they've already limited trading And that capital controls are only going to get more severe Okay so that's the immediate then response this morning So what about the Kremlin and the reaction then to the other western sanctions So you've had a ban on some banks being able to use the swift system the freezing of the central banks assets We know also that alveoli will be speaking this afternoon 4 p.m. Moscow time that's 1 p.m. hour time after raising those key interest rates So what's the response from the Kremlin then to these western sanctions Well such a drastic move by the Central Bank certainly indicates that they were kind of caught off guard about the serenity of the sanctions That are targeting both the swift swift messaging system which is really key for all financial transactions Internationally And also the asset ban on the freezing assets of the Central Bank So even though there have been a lot of talk in the run up to this invasion that Russia has been preparing for years against potential western sanctions they're having much more of an effect than previous than people had assumed they might Yes We also see really bellicose talk coming out of the Kremlin So Putin has raised the nuclear nuclear alert to high which means that they're placing the world's biggest nuclear arsenal on a hair trigger And I just see on the Russian wires right now that the army is offering people in Kyiv who are now completely surrounded by the city of Kyiv is completely surrounded by the Russian army They're offering a corridor down one highway in which civilians are allowed to escape So that's sounds like they're preparing for a full on siege and.

"Good morning and thank you and let's start with some Central Bank speak saying it was fed president James bullet says the atmosphere needs to get on with tightening policy to underline its inflation fighting credibility restating his view that rate should be raised by 100 basis points by July In Europe Christine Lagarde and says no rush to remove stimulus in the Euro region speaking to the

nuclear accord with Iran is indeed in sight and is urging world powers to reach a compromise to revive the deal Joseph barrell tweeted the comments after a phone call with Iran's foreign minister who told reporters that Tehran was in a hurry to revive the accord a revised deal would allow Iran to return to global oil markets in exchange for rolling back its nuclear activity And in top corporate news BHP has reported first half profit that dipped about 3% compared to the previous 6 months the world's top miner says cost discipline and strong operational performance helped it to weather a drop in iron ore prices over the period Iron ore H BHP's biggest revenue generated dropped more than 40% in the second half after China slapped output curbs on the steel sector which accounts for up to 75% of global oil demand Global news 24 hours a day on air and on Bloomberg quicktake powered by more than 2700 journalists and analysts in more than 120 countries and the Ann guerins this is Bloomberg Danny Leanne thanks so much And I should say iron ore dropping again this morning So volatility still in the front view for BHP All right well let's take a look at today's big take and it's all about which hedge funds are making the most money Some of that might be a little unexpected Bloomberg's 2021 ranking of hedge fund earners put a little known manager near the top while Ken Griffin Citadel was number one Karthik Sharma appears near the top after making an estimated $2 billion last year For more on our rankings and it also happens to be 13 F season We're joined by Bloomberg Simone foxman Simone Can I also just say always great to talk to you about hedge funds little fun fact for all of our listeners Simone and I back in the day when we were both in New York used to work on hedge fund stories So Simone thanks for joining I guess we did Once I get back to that topic All right so let's start with Karthik Sharma This is so fascinating It's a little fun making $2 billion What seems to be the secret sauce there Yeah $2 billion on an $8 billion overall fund So that's pretty massive a 35% gain for investors Pharma apparently according to investors we've spoken to uses very little leverage but is willing to go big on a single investment The investment that made him the most money in 2021 Avis Budget Group He's actually been an investor that rental companies for 11 years But that gained 456% last year Over the year he's also made money on Netflix as well He's a former Tiger management guy but actually kind of lives a low key lifestyle went to live with his sister and her family in New Jersey during the pandemic So the Tiger cub still alive and doing well Does a success say anything about how the hedge fund industry is evolving Smurf You know he is someone who best on big stock moves but really what we've seen over the past couple of years is this army of faceless suits as our reporter nishan Kumar puts it This big multi strategy fund that really are what investors are willing to pay for because they offer a diversity of assets breadth of investments And when you compare the top earners this year versus last year the funds that really seem to be repeating their appearance are a lot of them are multi strategy funds and the ones that spell off the list are ones that are big stock picking names The likes of co two Melvin capital that made big money on tech investments Notably our ranking here excludes private equity investments and that's been a real mainstay for some of these funds Particularly more recently Yeah I mean it just kind of squared with some of what strategies have been saying as of late that stock pickers market is back Okay I know everyone says that every year but perhaps he shows there is some truth to that Now because we have ya Simone I gotta ask about 13 fs It's of course this insight into fund managers portfolios and the prior quarter with all of these regulatory filings As you come through them and I know there are a lot So this might be the most difficult question I could possibly ask but what are the key takeaways in your mind Yeah a little bit all over the place and certainly this is a time when we spend a lot of interest on these sort of stock pickers One of the hottest funds over the past couple of years has been Melvin capital that's game plotkin's fund And he really turned over a lot of his portfolio Also we've seen mixed reviews of Netflix and peloton by various people trying to get in and out of those names Depending.

"Stimulus check from the PBOC versus the words of conflict and I suppose the role of language from the Ukrainian president Jules what is Asian makeup at all Yeah absolutely You can say it will reflect it here on the GMM Manas you do have a weakening one there that is part of reflected of those Ukraine tensions and also as we heard authorities say they could step in to stabilize that market too You've also been watching this big drop lower in the commodities market I'll get to more of that in the moment but that is affecting sentiment here too And it is more broadly a risk off day We've got Asian stocks lower for a third session in a row where there is some upside is in China We had the PBOC keeping its one year rate unchanged at 2.85% but they did inject nearly $16 billion of liquidity into that market helping stocks which yesterday deepened their bear market territory So one index that is holding up quite well but overall use of it is a lot of jitters out there And of course I know we're going to talk more about this but that big slump you're seeing in iron ore and steel futures too Yeah I mean the market's live team talks about a caning of the iron ore a collapse in the price action and the futures market How is that what's the contagion like What can you see Yeah well no surprise you are seeing it really flow through into those mining players Australia has closed out the session but we did see quite a bit of weakness coming through from those big mining players the iron all players and M live also had another interesting tidbit on this in the fact that we have been seeing so much support from authorities to try and prop up the Chinese economy and then you have this coming through which is get really giving us to the market after state media futures daily indicated that officials have summoned a number of these companies to ensure the smooth operation of the market We also had BHP coming through with numbers today so it's lost not quite as significant as some of the other big miners it came through with a record first half profit and a 50% bump in its interim dividend Okay thank you very much Juliet started to see through the morning state street there just given us their call on the commodity sector Look it's been a momentous meeting between the Turkish president Erdoğan the UAE crown prince Sheik Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan And the two countries seek to move past years of hostility Did they manage that What are the tangible takeaways from a very ceremonial presentation yesterday Simone It looked pretty awesome online The meaning of these two men and all the pageantry What was the reality Well the reality was that 13 cooperation agreements were signed according to Turkish state media and also UAE ministers talking about $30 billion of worth of non oil bilateral trade that they're targeting with turkey in the next 5 years That would be more than double the $13.7 billion in bilateral trade done in 2021 And that was already substantially higher than the amount of trade in recent years Look it's clear that both of these leaders looking past some of the hostilities the disagreements of the past particularly turkey's support for Islamist groups in the wake of Arab Spring It's support for Qatar in the gulf rift Now looking at business instead of ideology and this really happening from both sides Turkey's impetus here very clear Experienced an economic crisis a currency crisis It needs all the foreign direct investment It can get the UAE also seeking to establish itself as a global trade hub and seeing turkey really as an avenue to maybe doing that Now both leaders seeming to indicate that now the discussion is really going to move to companies in order to kind of get these deals underway We'll have to see if they're all they're cracked up to be though And that's not something we're likely to get an indication of right away And then landmark deal in Iraq could be in trouble What exactly has taken place It was a huge deal announced in September $27 billion by total energies and investments in Iraq over the course of 25 years And this was really supposed to indicate a new dawn for international oil companies operating in Iraq because several had left Iraq over the past couple of years But now Reuters is reporting that this deal may be on the rocks because talks are stalled particularly around the elements that the Iraqi parliament Iraqi lawmakers have to approve For one total is expected to be afforded some 40% of oil revenues from one particular project there were tau we oil field That is a big one and that is a big number because in the past these international energy companies have gotten like ten to 15% of revenues So Iraqi lawmakers want more transparency total also doesn't really want to work with the Iraqi national oil company and that may be a sticking point It's worth noting however we reached out to the Iraqi oil ministry yesterday And they said yes there are some discrepancies on financing but they still see this important deal going through with some of the first steps coming in early 2023 And on Iran I mean this is the debate how quickly they might get to a revival of the 2015 nuclear deal Are they in a Harry is one at hand What is the language construct that the oil market needs to be aware of Yeah and not only if they can get to a deal quickly but if they can get there at all because the U.S. has continually said time is running out But we got extraordinarily optimistic commentary from both Iran and the EU The foreign minister of Iran and Europe de la hand saying a deal is essentially at hand as long as the U.S. moves forward with its promises to repeal sanctions EU envoy Joseph barrell also saying that he sees a deal in sight But it's really worth noting here The U.S. commentary continues to be much more cynical U.S. State Department spokesman Ned price telling reporters yesterday that we are going to be a bit more circumspect in terms of the progress we are seeing on the ground in Vienna This in response to a question about those optimistic comments So clearly the U.S. not there yet and it's also facing some pushback from American lawmakers in Congress not so willing to move forward with this deal We also understand the same major disagreements are still here that we have been looking at for the last couple of months U.S. wants better indications that monitoring is going to go on if Iranian nuclear sites Iran wants this affirmation that the U.S. isn't going to suddenly repeal this deal if a new president comes in office I don't know if we're going to get there guys I think there's still a big question mark regardless of these optimistic comments So thank you for that update That's about Fox about the kind of financial center in Doha Oil has eased slightly after WTI breach $95 a barrel and I made the ongoing Ukraine tensions traders are weighing that against the outlook for global demand In the meantime you've got the EU's top diplomats saying that he strongly believes a nuclear court in Iran is inside the Simone mentioned some of those points It's on the other side He's.

"Actions seriously undermine the security order in Europe. A week of meetings among Russia, U.S. and NATO loom, with no one sure how anything will play out one thing is certain is that the mood is gloomy. But examine what lies ahead and if peace in Ukraine can be maintained. In matters of complicated further by Moscow's military presence in Kazakhstan with the U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken warning that when the Russians arrive, it's quite hard to get them to leave. We are looking at taking steps that we have not taken in the past. And that the consequences for Russia would be severe. We'll also have the latest from Australia as Novak Djokovic attempts to stay in the country to play tennis, and we'll head to France where the wording of the country's identity card has become a national linguistic tangle. Plus the newspapers and we'll find out why 2000 of Ireland's musicians artists and actors will be paid a regular wage that's all ahead on the globalist life from London. First though a look at what else is happening in today's news, at least 19 people, including 9 children have died in an apartment fire in New York City. Delegates at this weekend's summit for economic community of West African states have adopted tougher sanctions on Mali to push for a swifter return to democratic rule. And The White House has warned Iran will face severe consequences if it attacks Americans. Stay tuned to monocle 24 throughout the day for more on these stories, but first. NATO must be prepared for talks with Russia to fail. That's a frankly depressing warning from NATO's secretary general himself, Stoltenberg. Foreign affairs ministers from the military alliance met at the end of last week to work out their approach to this week's NATO Russia council. For months now a buildup of Russian troops at the Ukrainian border has raised fears at Vladimir Putin may once again once again invade. But the U.S. and Russia meet today to kick off a week of discussions. Well, in the studio with me to discuss the next few days is a writer broadcaster and Russia analyst Stephen diel. I'm also joined down the line by Suzanne lynch's author of Politico's Brussels playbook, and Julie Norman is a lecturer in politics and international relations at university college London. Good morning to you. Welcome. Good morning. Good morning. Good morning. Very good to have you with us today. At Stephen, may I ask you just to briefly outline the timetable for the next few days? Because this is, I don't think it's astonishing to think how many meetings are taking place. Have already taken place and where this is all leading to. Yes, this is the easy bit to start with. Because, as you say, there is a timetable. In fact, it started well it started last week with NATO meeting to try and discuss its position so that when they meet the Russians later in the week, hopefully they will have a unified position. But yesterday, Sunday, American and Russian diplomats met for a dinner. So that was the informal part. And today, as you mentioned in the lead in, there will be the formal discussions between Russia and the U.S. on what's going on basically around Ukraine. Then on Wednesday, the NATO Russia council, which was set up in 2002, in order to establish better relations and hopefully avoid misunderstandings between Russia and NATO. That meets on Wednesday for the first time since 2019 in the 2019 was something of not exactly a first, but the council was suspended after the Russian invasion of eastern Ukraine and the seizure of Crimea in 2014, so that hasn't been meeting regularly, so that'll be noteworthy. And then on Thursday, the organization for security and cooperation in Europe, the OSCE, also meets and also discusses with the Russians. What's going on? What Russia is doing around UK and Ukraine and they'll try and get some idea of president Putin's intentions. Julie, this is an astonishing number of gatherings in a short space of time indicatives really now of the seriousness of the situation that people face when it comes to Russia and Ukraine. That's exactly right. And for the U.S. this morning is the bilateral, of course, talks between the U.S. and Russia directly. So it's where the administration has been focusing a lot of their attention. What we know is the administration's very open to a diplomatic solution, but it's not going to give in to demands from Russia, especially in terms of limiting NATO expansion or moving troops from Eastern Europe. But they are willing to discuss a couple other areas, including committing to not placing offensive missiles and Ukraine in the future, which is something that a Putin has wanted insurance is on. And also on limiting military exercises or sometimes called war games in Eastern Europe. But the us has been very clear that any agreements to be contingent on Russia are removing these immediate threats to Ukraine over 100,000 troops estimated on the border right now. And also on reciprocity for some of these measures that they might be discussing. And this is unlikely to happen, isn't it? Yes. I mean, we are people have played down what to expect from this. But here in Brussels, there is a sense, a kind of irritation, I think, that these meetings are taking place. A lot of them without Europe and more importantly without Ukraine off the table. And it's very evident that Russia is quite happy to deal directly with the U.S. and just the U.S. it believes that the U.S. is the main player in nature, and that's who wants to do business with. But there have been noises from the EU high representative Joseph barrell, even Ursula von der lane, Macron, the French president last week, and saying that, you know, if this involves Europe, Europe should be consulted. Now, there has been a lot of bilateral discussion between the Americans between, for example, Antony Blinken sexual state. And his counterparts in the eastern countries, the eastern Flank of NATO, as well as some of the top larger countries within Europe. But I think this is a kind of a moment of reckoning for Europe about the scale of its own capabilities when it comes to fence and how much of a player it really is. It's an astonishing astonishing situation isn't it at Steven that we have the EU effectively sidelined from a story which it has played such as strong part of thinking about the Minsk agreement in 2014, which was engineered with the likes of Angela Merkel. But looking at what the situation is really about. Yes, there are a 100,000 Russian troops on the border with Ukraine. But many are suggesting that this is a brilliantly engineered moment when Vladimir Putin gets to try to roll back NATO's expansion. And does it with a gun to Ukraine's head as Antony Blinken has said? I mean, the description is accurate. He's holding a gun to Ukraine's head. And of course, he's taking advantage of Europe at a time that Europe is weak, really. You've got a new administration in Germany that no one quite knows how they're going to react. And Chancellor stalks has said that we ought to have new dialog with president Putin. Whatever people think about Angela Merkel, one thing that she was very strong she was actually the one European leader who stood up to Vladimir Putin even walking out when he turned up late as he always does. For a meeting. So that's the German situation is unclear. France is concerned about its forthcoming presidential election. Everyone of course is worried about the coronavirus pandemic still. So the timing from Putin's point of view is not coincidental. He's a great player for seeing what is going on and just throwing a stone into the pond to cause ripples. And these are very big ripples being caused by what he's doing around Ukraine. This is more than throwing a big big stone and causing huge ripples here. I mean, this is this is caused everybody to sit up and pay attention and people not necessarily have to admire Vladimir Putin, but it is a must move. It is, as you say, I mean, I don't admire it, but it is, it is very much Putin. While people are distracted by what I've just been talking about, that, oh, well, let's just put this into the mix. Are we going to invade Ukraine? I know I'm just having troop maneuvers on the borders. A 100,000 troops in one go with apparently another 100,000 ready to be mobilized at any moment. This is very serious. The one big question is a number of questions, but one big question is he's marched the troops up to the top of the hill. Does he just march them.

"To a strong start CDC saying today that those getting a booster shots are seeing mostly mild side effects New York's governor Kathy hoko says the vaccine mandate that went into effect this week is working to boost vaccination rates up over 20% in a month and a half and that New York City schools while the mayor of the city Bill de Blasio reminding educators they have until Friday at 5 p.m. to get their first dose or be placed on unpaid leave and the Biden administration now says it is preparing for a shutdown and contingency This is Republicans black Democrats efforts to raise the debt ceiling In San Francisco I'm at Baxter this is Bloomberg Brian One of the reasons Ed that Hong Kong didn't get too alarmed on that CDC call yesterday was many thought that it was a mistake Professor Ben cowling at the university of Hong Kong told the South China morning post in exactly these words it's a mistake Give it a few days and probably they'll correct it Well they corrected it in one day Let's take another look here at some of the other papers and their stories Local press generally talking about the European Union planning to expand its relations with Taiwan without recognition of statehood This comes in a statement from the EU diplomat Joseph barrell in a strategic dialog meeting with Chinese foreign minister Wang Yi Or else statement comes as Lithuania's row with China deepened Lithuania allowed a Taiwanese representative office in Vilnius and prior to that they always had to be called Taipei representative office And also here's kind of another angle but this one was foreign minister Wang Yi has called on NATO to focus on Europe and North America rather than be forming a new military alliance in the Asia Pacific and this was a conversation of rare conversation between China and Europe at the military level It was the first phone discussion with NATO chief Jen's Stoltenberg and Wong said the transatlantic alliance should stay within its original geographical positioning Stoltenberg said the block was concerned about China's nuclear arsenal but did not see it as an adversary And let's look at the media were shot All right well Jenny was now Bloomberg bond and foreign exchange reported discussing the market needs of the day and gives us sense here What you made of the session that was indeed what was your main takeaway Good morning guys It looks like the market that we pricing a hawkish central banks We see the yield to rise over the last couple of weeks of days And we see 30 years bond yields is now about 2% And this trigger of the stock market to react the two as Brian mentioned earlier that it's a rate of the speed of the change It's really effective the sentiment here In the stomach we saw that yesterday was sort of a favor of reflation trade We see the energies and material and the industry stocks that are performing But today is essentially accept the energy stocks every day So it's been about a reaction and actually reaction to how fast the yield is heavy rising One question that arises yes here is could the U.S. debt ceiling impasse actually derail the feds tapering Yes this is a scenario Some investors are envisioned I think at Google and made a point that they said the they see the decimal really become a problem that could delay the fair tapering to December instead of November as widely believed So but I think that most majority of the market players think that as always we are going to get a last minute deal and to avoid and so to speak But Jenny Yellen today may clear that the drop debt deadline is October 18th I believe So we see there some of the reaction in the deals market We see the BO yields increased around mid October increase as investors shy away from the potential default or delayed payment So this is a clear that the market is something the market starts to worry about a little bit more Yeah it's extraordinary isn't it We're seeing and there is of course the whole notion of whether this is systemic et cetera et cetera But that's I think being broadly now I suppose will bunk I suppose I'm sorry I missed the early part Is it the idea of the bond crisis or whatever a Lehman moment forever grand has been largely discounted now Right I think it's generally accepted that the it's a high probability that everland is going to restructure its debt And the government will step into ensure it's not going to collapse and leave like hundreds of apartments on finished and leave all these supplies unpaid et cetera so I think this is a consensus now So far the Chinese government haven't show its hand We haven't got any statement from the company so that whether it paid the interest main a rate of the mature of the bonds last week and we do have another bond interest payment to I believe Wednesday So it's a bit of a guessing game But you are right that people believe that yes there is going to be some painful for example the bar holders the Everglades but we are not going to see a Lehman sort of the crisis in China Yesterday we had the HK MA asking banks here or in Hong Kong about their exposure and Bloomberg is reporting today that the fed has been questioning American banks about their exposure to evergreen Now if the fed is worried should we I think of this as a public practice every time you have a such a big company that is in trouble I think is probably prudent for your regulators and central banks to ask how the exposure But I think both the ECB and the sales at least made a public that they think the direct exposure to ever grand in both regions in the U.S. and Europe is quite eliminated So yes I think this is probably a due diligence on their part but not necessary sign of stress Well indeed but at the same time let's move to other parts of the economy and how they perhaps affecting markets and we're just looking at of course these supply chain constraints this energy crunch in China the move up in oil prices In fact that could almost act as an interest rate hike very briefly here you're seeing Yes yes I think this is a part of the scenario that markets a little bit worried about these sort of like stack inflation scenario that all these supply shortage pushing inflation.

"All of this ahead of the elections coming up in september is about showing that they are competent that they could lead. They've never led germany. They've never been you know. Part of the Government in full before they're in states and that's one of the things that donald find talked about. When i asked him about like you know are are the are the greens ready to lead. In that sense he focused on their their state level responses. But they have to show that they would be competent enough to actually be the leaders of germany to be part of the federal government when it comes to a response like this and chris on this border point. 'cause we've spoken before and it's a bit of a narrative in fact quite widely across the block about a recalibration of the political spectrum and the greens taking a more meaningful role as particularly this debate. The urgency around climate change particularly for younger voters and there are many now who are costing votes in general elections. Maybe for the first time for whom. This is the key issue in a sense. Does it help them. Politically almost have had such a catastrophic event right in the boat to an election because it makes it more likely perhaps that it becomes the singular issue or are we not quite there in your view. Well i think the bigger question actually is just. How are they now going to show that they have something to say on the issue because the irony if you will is that because climate change is now such an important topic. All parties in germany are on top of it right there. All introducing plans. They're all saying and even as dining find in part of this interview that i did which is also part of a broader Series we're doing with german lawmakers you know talks about how yes every party now. Recognizes climate change is an issue. But you know we we were there. I we are the ones who had the plans to begin with. But that doesn't necessarily work in an election cycle. Does it simply say. Well we've been clamoring the loudest beforehand. You still need to offer something different. Something new and that's going to be the key issue whether they can really rise above the fray still and show that hey we are still the party that is trusted on climate change. And that's why you need to put us in charge. Interesting stuff and as chris mentions. Listen out for more of that sort of thing in the days ahead. You're listening to the briefing here or markle. Twenty-four leaked document obtained by the eu observers suggest. The european union can't be willing to send a military mission to libya to bolster the blocks influence in the country. The reports have been firmly denied by the european union but if brussels not prepared to play that she role in north african nation. What other assistance could it provide where we're joined now by. Mary fitzgerald journalist and libya researcher based in marseille. Good afternoon to you mary. Good to have you on the program as ever claiming counterclaim denial in denial about these Newspaper pieces should we take the claims seriously in your view while i think i it's important to bear in mind that There have been conversations ongoing in brussels for some time. Now about some kind of Military engagement in libya now. Of course the questions. About what form or shape commissioner engagement would take. There's been a lot of debate about this but this has been a conversation over the past number of years in brussels. That's not to say of course that we are about to see 'em a military mission deployed to to libya by the eu anytime soon but the conversation is happening. And what's interesting is that there are people within the circle of the eu foreign policy. Chief joseph barrell who have publicly talked about how they see libya as a place where the eu you as. An actor can project itself militarily. We're talking about a european commission. That has a talked about rejecting itself as a geopolitical commission. So there are some People in brussels who consider libya as possible at theatre where the you could project itself in that way. And some of those people are in a joseph burrell's own circle now. There's a big difference between that and floating that idea..

How the Biden administration will affect the EU
"With the biden administration taking office in just under a month. You leaders a counting the days until they feel like they can have a new start with an american team. that's more committed to transatlantic relations this week. The us foreign policy chief. Joseph barrell reveal the agenda he hopes to pursue well joining me on the line from brussels. Is our correspondent. Teri schultz terry. It's not an exaggeration to say most e you leaders a hugely relief with the biden win and believe things are going to be different now. Where does the e u. side wants to start well and they've actually released this document now laying out where they believe. The most progress can be made in the fastest and most efficient way. And that's what you high rep josette burrell released yesterday. And they've got four areas where they want to start the europeans. They want to start with corona virus. Response making that again. A global effort with president trump having pulled out of the world health organization saying constantly america first america first when it comes to a vaccine. That's something that does not sit well with the europeans who are committed to making vaccines affordable and available to the entire world on climate. They are very much looking forward to president-elect biden making good on his campaign promise to rejoin the paris climate accord. That's something that suffers without. Us leadership and i think president-elect biden is is committed to doing that the third one is a little a little tougher trade and technology that you use third priority and that's one where you're not going to automatically see any. Us president stop protecting or trying to protect american tech giant's against for example e regulators who want to recoup taxes from from the multinationals. That's going to be somewhere where we we may not see as quick progress but on trade looking at the world trade organization where president trump is just continually attacked and and made it impossible for the wto to get reforms that the europeans also support. I expect that that will be one of the areas that there will be some quick progress and unwed burrell calls global action and he says this is working toward a safer more prosperous and more democratic world and they're hoping that president-elect biden will put more emphasis on human rights on rule of and on basic democratic values that the eu and the us due to a large extent share but is it realistic for the e. You just think that the biden administration shares these views simply going to sign onto this plan. Or i think europeans may be disappointed by the fact that foreign policy is probably not going to be the first thing on on president-elect biden's list he's got to deal with the corona virus that's just raging in the in the us and and the divisiveness that this campaign and actually the trump presidency has brought about in america and he's got to work on that before he can justify to anyone that he's going to be working on with with european leaders but he very much wants to do that. All of his statements during the campaign to to europeans. Were basically i understand. This is not the way the. Us you relationships should work and he will. He does share a lot of these views. He certainly will not be giving comfort to leaders. Like hungary's viktor orban or the polish government. That is rolling back the rights of women. He will have. He will have a few things to say about that. Which president trump left unsaid or probably didn't even believe
