ali velshi, thanks for joining us. ♪ >> announcer: this is al jazeera. ♪ hello and welcome from the head quarters in doha and coming up, in the next 60 minutes, french jets starts surveillance flights as they meet in paris to discuss the islamic state threat. the task facing a new u.n. mission in the central african republic. money on oil, will it mix with an independent scott land, three days ahead of the crucial vote.
6:01 am
slum life in mexico city may look humble but some are building their dreams. ♪ french president is calling for united international action to combat the group that calls itself the islamic state or isil and they are hosting a conference in paris from representatives from 30 coun countries and has urgency for international military assistance and isil fighters made significant gains in iraq and are a regional and even a global threat. >> translator: the struggle of the iraqi people against terrorists is our struggle as well and we have to act together and this is the purpose of the conference, we have to stand by iraqi authorities and there is not a moment to be lost. >> translator: we have to do everything to prevent the youth from being enrolled and break up
6:02 am
recruitment channels and deprive isil of resources and punish all those linked to it. . >> translator: we continue to ask for airborne operations to be carried out regularly against terrorist sites. we must not allow il to have sanctuarys and seize them wherever they are and cutoff financing and stop neighboring countries from joining is. >> reporter: this is a view from baghdad but we will begin with us following develops in paris. >> reporter: just before the talks got underway in earnest the french president said it was crucial but there is international unity on the fight against the group calling itself islamic state in iraq. he also stressed that the u.n. security council has labeled that group a threat to international security. it's clear that the president would like to see international legitimacy lend it to any
6:03 am
potential air strikes by the u.n. but it's far from clear whether that will happen. in the meantime he is hoping as is the iraqi president who is also here in paris that more and more paris will sign up for some kind of involvement in military efforts against the is group in iraq. it's clear according to john kerry the u.s. secretary of state that some will be prepared for air strikes and others prepared to lend intelligent support and cash crucially. we heard from france defense minister saying they are starting to carry out flights in iraqi air face breaking up air strikes against the i.s. group but we don't know how many states will come on board and take part in activities like
6:04 am
that. crucially, iran has not been invites to the conference and that is problematic given its role in the fighting in syria. now syria, of course, is crucial also to the future of the i.s. groups and some cynics say whatever happens here in paris will be of limited effect unless the international community takes concerted action to stop the i.s. group from spreading in syria. >> let's take a closer look at why isil is seen as a threat to the region and islamic state fighters control a third of both iraq and syria and the group has taken control of iraq's second biggest city and mosul and then in part of the heavily consistented city of decreate and they are trying to figure out how to unite a depositionly divided country on sectarian lines. well let's cross to baghdad and he is waiting for us right there. what will the iraqi president be
6:05 am
hoping at best to get out of this conference? >> reporter: well, he will be hoping for concrete steps, concrete measures, things he can bring back to iraq saying this is what the international community are going to do. when it comes to things like firstly strengthening the iraqi army, it needs updating badly and needs new weapons and tactics and looking for things of that nature and looking at what type of air strikes that will take place, whether they are from arab countries or european nations they will be looking for something that aid will guaranty him and air strikes effected but won't result in large numbers offensive yanukovich casualties and looking for humanitarian assistance as a refugee crisis and when they have displaced people coming in from syria here in iraq and looking for assistance with that. so iraqis are looking for this conference to give them a concrete idea of what can happen next. >> what about the important of
6:06 am
regional involvement? you have all these international coalition partners from around the world. what about those from the region itself? >> reporter: well the big worry from sheer groups is one of the key players here in iraq is i ran and they have been frozen out of this conference. what they could like to see is much more outreach to i ran, there are a big key player here and troops on the ground and fighting islamic state here and sent in advisors to help advise iraqi mail tr -- militarys and there is not just a key player in iraq but syria as well and looking at the influence of saudi arabia and very worried about the influence of saudi arabia here in iraq and wondering what saudi arabia will do next, clearly the relations between saudi arabia and i ran are strained and the regional partners are far from united and that does have an impact here in
6:07 am
iraq. >> thanks very much indeed and let's bring in abraham here in the studio in the doha center and we are actually waiting for the press conference to come up for the foreign ministers of iraq and france to deliver their verdict of what happened. what would you hope to see? >> it's what they would hope to see, they would hope to see they now have by the end of this conference the legitimacy to the intervention in iraq and to the actual launching of the international coalition against isil. in addition actually with that they would like to see that they have actually bypassed the security council and with the coalition of this formation of coalition, they would -- it would provide the coverage for that in iraq.
6:08 am
>> what about the question of the village's or the intervention because it's outside the u.n. framework, isn't it? >> it is outside the u.n.'s framework and moon said two days ago the legality of the innervation and what it expands with international law but things and intervention has to directly happen in many places around the world without necessarily having to have the security council protection or legal coverage. american invasion of iraq happened outside this. even without an international coalition, the u.s. tried to build when it invaded iraq back in 2003, but was not able to do so. so without legitimacy, the intervention can still happen but there is a major weakness, a
6:09 am
major gap in this information without having this legitimacy component. and it questions the out comes, to what extent, what is -- even if the coalition is successful and the formation and bringing the partners that they need and even if being able to take the area where isil controls at the moment, there are many other questions about how effective the solution is, dealing with symptoms of a problem, not the root causes of the problem. >> questions including this final one before we hear more from paris itself. what would be determined or deemed a success in the fight against isil? >> very hard to measure success in this and what criteria we can use to major successes. for the parties who are building this coalition i think in their
6:10 am
own criteria success is taking the land that currently controlled by isil in iraq, that is in my view is not a success. success because it's the root causes of the problem, it's the war in syria, the sectarian division in iraq, these are some of the issues that are generated or helped bring this isil phenomenon at the moment and the coalition does not have even they are not even mentioned in the campaign of the coalitions to deal with isil or others. so even if you are able to take the land back and remove isil from the western part, northern part of iraq, i think probably the problem will even become in my view more complicated because instead of having isil in one place you head that area and like to spread it over the region and we have a major
6:11 am
lesson from al-qaeda of that was the outcome. >> we will have more a little bit later, let's get the scene from paris right now, the empty stage and we will see the foreign minister of france anti -- iraq minister and we will hear the details and we will hear a fair bit of detail about what is going to happen. so let's go to some breaking news out of libya now, malitia by the retired general say they have closed the eastern city of benghazi's port. they say the closure is to cutoff arm supplies to extremist armed groups. we will bring you more details on that as they come into al jazeera. to the central african republican where the u.n. is taking over the peace keeping operation and face a difficult task, in the last 17 years, 13 peace keeping missions have been
6:12 am
deployed to syria and none has brought lasting stability, 6500 african union troops have been in jail since july 2013 but have struggled to stop the cycle of religious violence and fears of genicide led france to deploy troops and 2000 soldiers that will work along the new u.n. force. under the new u.n. mission almost 12000 peace keepers and military police will be deployed by the end of next year and we have this report. >> reporter: this is the abandoned base of the rebels who killed two children. we met her in hospital last november recovering from a bullet wound, her christian family was hiding in this hut when members from seleka opened up killing women and children. it withdrew from the town and peaceful community and is now consumed by hate.
6:13 am
>> translator: since i lost my two children i have been in mourning, i still miss them so much, muslims killed my family so if i see one muslim i feel like taking out revenge. >> reporter: because of sentiments like that many muslims have fled from the country. more than 100,000 of them are now refugees in cameroon and chad. as many muskegon -- muslims were killed by baliki and lead the group. some are returning home but france has been criticized by some muslims for not doing enough to protect them and the french soldiers want to show they are not taking sides. >> translator: i can understand that central africans are in a hurry but things have got off to a good start, the u.n. is here to build on that so central africans can find peace and normality once again. >> reporter: ♪ in bongi u.n. peace keeping
6:14 am
force of thousands is prepared to head out to strategic locations across the country. it will have a strong mandate to protect civilians and powers to arrest criminals but not as mobile and well equipped as this french army. soldiers are working alongside u.n. peace keepers and eventually start withdrawing from these remote areas and back to bongi and have security in parts of the region but people just don't want peace, they want justice too. the crimes committed in the town have been committed across the country, muslims and christians alike are carrying deep psychological wounds. she will never get to hold her children again and for now says she is not interested in reconciliation. >> we can go live to the capitol of the central african
6:15 am
republican. >> reporter: well, i'm actually in the french base, as you saw in the report there the french forces have been very important in security particularly to bongi, things have changed on the ground. this is a bustling city now who was mired in conflict a few months early and we will talk to the chief of staff of the force here in central african republic. can you tell us, colonel how long the french forces will be staying here on the ground? >> as you may know we interviewed the fifth of september and then u.n. resolution and special request from the central african government. we will stay as long as the government will need us and as they will ask us to support a deployable. we are here to facilitate the deployment anywhere and everywhere in the world. >> i have spoken to muslim
6:16 am
communities and members here in bongi also in western central african republic who are critical of the french and feel you are not doing enough to protect them. >> we do our best and we protect all our populations, the muslim populations everywhere we are deployed in south africa and it's the same in war in bongi and we have one rule and one course of action, one goal is to set up a million level of security, one rule is to implement the confident measures and we have one course of action that is security and we are dealing with any people, any faction, any armed group the same way everywhere we are. >> we have also seen not here in bongi where not many weapons are open on display but we have seen seleka forces and also an
6:17 am
antibaliki with weapons and when will you start disarming the forces because that is key, disarming the groups? >> we are not strictly taught and disarmer the groups in the population, we implement confident measures and that means if we are meeting someone that is drawing a weapon we will ask him to put down his weapon on the floor and even by force and they know that we won't do it like this and any time we are more convinced than force people to do it but generally when we need them we will cross them, this action is done. >> thank you so much for joining us here at the french base. just to reiterate there a lot of people are still skern ee eed concerned here and the poverty and the peace keeping force does not address the root causes of this conflict.
6:18 am
>> reporter: thanks very much indeed, reporting from bangi. much more to come here on the al jazeera news hour including a desperate choice and israeli strike killed his son a palestinian father is forced to make one of the most difficult decisions of his life. also ahead suffering in silence, we report from south korea where hiv and aids patients face stigma and prejudice. and billy wins golf season finale and $10 million prize. ♪ british prime minister david cameron is making his last visit to scott land, three days ahead of referendum on scottish independence and could vote yes but is pushing for a big no. and the city of aberdeen and
6:19 am
lawrence lee is standing by and three days and counting, the fever builds. >> reporter: yes, it is growing fears if you are for the union and internationalist say it's scott land's biggest opportunity but today, monday is all about business, big business. and that is why we are at abd abderd abderdeen's office and point out that they have 1%, 5 million people of europe population of 500 million and yet they say they have 20% of europe fish stop, 25% of europes renewable energy supply answer a -- and oil and gas reserves, the last two points renewables and oils and use against the argument against those who say scott land would be poorer rather than
6:20 am
richer from its divorce from the u.k., the granite city and on the east coast it's bitterly code and gray but this place has been basquing in the economic sunshine for years, that oil has provided. kenny runs a successful construction company. yet he supports independence from the u.k. because he thinks so much of the profit has been wasted by london. >> oil was discovered in the late 1960s when i was a teenager and ever since i was a teenager they are saying the oil the running out and that is development and opportunities and i think we could have a much stronger economy in scott land and infrastructure and investment and encouragement from the u.k. treasury been stronger. >> reporter: two sides in the debate of the united kingdom agree that scott land could survive as an independent country but oil, energy and scott land's future income has
6:21 am
been a source of endless debate. it is central for the argument of the national party that the seas there are still full of oil and that the profit from scottish old should go to scott land and not london but they say as they have for years forecast is a lie and oil is running out, all it's a metaphor for the big question scott land faces, is this country as the union says really quite poor or as the nationalist insists really quite rich. one day the oil will run out, that much is certain but its replacements could be every bit as lucrative. this stretch of water in the far north of scott land will create the world's biggest title energy scheme and there are other similar and large energy projects throughout, after all a windy country surrounded by crashing seas looks very profitable indeed. >> we could see tens of thousands more people employed
6:22 am
in these fields and much more development of these resources, so i think it's a case of the level of our ambitions. >> reporter: yet many in scottish business insist nationalist claims of huge wealth are an illusion. >> no nuclear weapons and airforce and expanding and continuing pensions and expanding child care, the only thing we can have it and not the thing promised is white christmases. >> reporter: the slogan is yes we can and the union says no we can't, it's who the voters believe. >> lawrence, unsure about going alone is good for business but then you have companies like b.p. saying they are against independence. >> reporter: yes, that is absolutely right. they came out some months ago to say they were in favor of the union. but for these very large
6:23 am
corporations really it's political stability and obviously their primary consideration is not so much the people of scott land but to their shareholders. now clearly, you know, the scottish nationalist would say it's not b.p.'s wealth, it's scott land's wealth and making that point the last couple of days and continue to make the point with other big business leaders right now where they are campaigning and equally david camp on the u.k. program minister will be here later on making exactly the opposite argument and reminding the scotts if this is not an election and a vote yes for independence they cannot change their minds. >> fascinating debate and lawrence lee reporting there from aberdeen, egypt activist is released on bond according to the family and being retried after previously sentenced to 15 years in prison for violating the protest law and he was the

thousands are in shelters and more from richard who is following the progress of the hurricane. reporter: a storm which we have not seen the like of before. looking at the satellite imagery you can see it as it makes its way northward across baja, california. now it's a major storm and category three storm. the interesting thing, one of the interesting things about this is three is a major storm and the second to impact on peninsula in record. the previous one in 1989 no fatalities and no real problems because it grazed the south from cabo-san-lucas and this is unknown tory and this is from rainfall and suggests severe damage across the region. so this is at the moment, 180 winds gusting to 230. it moves north, northwest and then it does a right sharp turn
6:26 am
and the moment it turns it weakens considerably so the wind doesn't become an issue. at the moment, damaging winds no choice about it but the rainfall on cabo-san-lucas of 80, 90 kilometers of rain in september but we are looking at 500 millimeters of rain plus so there is going to be flooding and a surge of about one meter and the rainfall or the potential is 500 millimeters and looking at damage, destruction and problems in the region. >> thanks very much. venezuela lopez remains in jail after a court appearance in caracus for inciting violence and they criticized his imprisonment and we spoke to lopez supporters in caracus.

>> reporter: supporters of lopez protest outside a caracus courtroom and it's a reminder how isolated he has been from movement in 7 months in jail and his lawyer petitioned for the case against him to be nullified. >> this is unconstitutional and we demand the supreme court put order into this. >> reporter: lopez facing various charges including integration of violence and criminal conspiracy after a street protest resulted in several deaths last february and he turned himself in to authorities saying he had nothing to hide but what happens inside a courtroom doesn't necessarily affect the opposition's resolve. students who were detained alongside lopez and later released are waiting for word to one again take to the street. this protest where it took place looks different today and he was

jailed two months for participating in the protest says he is ready to do it again. >> translator: we have not received word yet on the plans, our leaders have been very quiet. >> reporter: quiet but according to them busy making plans. and he is one of the leaders of the student opposition. >> translator: what is next is offense the street, one that will be much better planned because of what we face today. >> reporter: the government says it will not tolerate more violent protests and is trying one of the most protesters to drive that point home. still ahead on the al jazeera news hour, defiant and german show support for jewish community after a serious of anti-semantic attacks and the basketball team has extra reason to celebrate, jerry will have all the details in sport. ♪

6:32 am
in here next year so we will have to secure the country. the roots and the cause of the conflict are more the economy decline of the deployment of the traffic and state collapse and this is not addressed at the moment. >> what are the problems that previous deployments face and what lessons can the latest missions learn from that as they take on their new role? >> yes, we consider first some traffic because it has a long story of international operation on the ground, it has been five international operations since 1997. and each time that the same scenario that the security response is here, so then it's to passify the country for a while so what the international community must do now as an emergency is to go very much
