a crack from karrenbauer proposed an international force to police a secure zone but she only had a few details for a moment to look like u.s. defense secretary marc asper might support have an idea i think it's fine that because it's something that we've been calling on our european partners to do for quite some time is to step up and do more so while i would be supportive of that sacrifice of support of what we don't intend on contribute ground forces or i think that operation the europeans had questions about the details and the timing of the pope was what we are not against an international security zone in principle but the situation on the ground has changed now that turkey and russia have reached an agreement those. in the past the germans have often been slow to suggest involvement in such matters but the foreign minister said she had proposed it to the turks the city so often that they showed themselves as very own. when in our

a ban. this is sacred ground for us the tourists that understand this want to understand it they say this is my rock i say no this is not your rock it's a rock or a little river. there are 700000 indigenous people in australia and many feel they are disadvantaged in many ways to this day the artist couple lulu and billy cooley are not against tourist coming to illumine general but they do want their culture to be respected. for her meeting play for the crowd from the crowds who were coming in. and people coming in and sharing. the climbing ban has been decided but it's controversial lindy severin and her farm and a nearby small motel with the pub she's afraid there will be fewer tourists now as a local business woman she feels her needs were not given enough consideration when
5:13 am
the decision was made. they're ok spain very much part of all of our lives but as professionally and personally for a long time. having one of those activities now removed just changes that at least $35.00 people have died climbing the rock over the decades and the hansen and her cousin jack have made it to the top. my view for someone is a compromise where the public can climb up to ice portion i only modest 5 hours the top where we're going to die and then that money goes back to the indigenous community but now only bike tools and hikes around the rock will be allowed after all the head of the park's visit to sever says wants to share respect for the people's beliefs such a significant decision to close a call is there important that i could actually make such a huge decision themselves demonstrates that i actually own the place and that i
