and al nusra front as terrorists they are not included in the negotiations. it's hoped it can revive geneva talks, to find a solution to end the civil war. >> james bay joins us now. >> do you start by talking through the agreement and what needs to happen next. >> what needs to happen next is to persuade the parties, the syrian parties, that friday at noon time, sign up to the deal, as you say, two parties are not included because they are covered by u.n. security council, their terrorism list, and that is the al nusra front, and also i.s.i.l. they will still be targeted. there is a problem there, i think, because i.s.i.l. has clearly defined territory that it controls, and everyone knows it controls. the al nusra front is spread more widely. in some areas they are operating
4:03 pm
close to two, alongside forces from other groups. so i think there's potential confusion there. one of the things that is worth noting is that this was an - this announcement of u.s. and russia, a task force was set up in munich, it's worth knowing that that task force never actually met. this was an agreement between the u.s. and russia. they felt easier doing an agreement together. it's not clear all the regional parties are on board, and syrian parties have not signed up to the cessation of hostilities, despite that it's been welcomed at the united nations. this was the comment from the spokesman for the secretary-general. >> it demands the commitment of the international support group for syria, influence on the warring parties to bring about a
4:04 pm
reduction of parties as a first step towards a durable ceasefire. further contributes to creating an environment conducive for the presumption of negotiations and a long-awaited hope to syrian people. they made an end to the suffering in sight. the secretary strongly encourages the parties to abide by the terms of the agreement. much work lies ahead, the support group and the syrian parties are steadfast in their resolve. >> and, james, no sooner this deal was reached, we heard from the syrian president bashar al-assad making a statement. >> yes, i think an added complications, adding another date in the diary. in april says it will happen for their parliament, an added
4:05 pm
complication for a situation were not a lot of people have a deal of optimism. we have a date for the cessation of hostilities. making it happen will be hard. one of our problems is with a few days ahead of the date on friday. with four days or so ahead, there's likely in the pass to be an increase as the warring sides battle for ground before a cessation starts. so there's another warning. >> thank you. live for us at the united nations in new york well, as diplomats try to stop the conflict the syrian government is fighting in france and aleppo. activists show planes dropping barrel bombs to the north of aleppo. russians air strikes targeted rebels in the rural areas of thousands are fleeing from the

4:08 pm
same. it's now the opposition last line of defense. they use it to receive supplies from turkey and could be used as a base to launch counteroffensives. >> the kurdish armed group and its allies, the syrian forces or not far away. they had threatened to advance into aziza rahimzada. there has been no movement on that front. there was a risk of wider areas. that battle has been but on hold, at least temporarily. >> the town is important to all sides, for those fighting against the opposition, aziza rahimzada lost military importance. since livelihoods have been cut to the south. that would jeopardise u.n. and russian efforts to negotiate ceasefires. >> there's more to come on the newshour. afghan refugees lock part of the

guilty. first of all, we had a preliminary statement made two gays ago. before the election formally declared. we pointed out the number of anom lease if you like, or minuses. it happened. on the day of the election itself, both in the cities and the rural areas, as we observed them. we say that these amount to gross incompetence on the part of the electoral commission
4:12 pm
which showed them. when it came to the crunch they say they had no room for it to happen. >> thousand of refugees stranded in the north of the macedonia border. they are blocking the passage of other refugees into macedonia. the greek government spect the number of people to grow in the coming days. we are brought the latest. >> out here, there was absolutely nobody here. there was a few people inside the official transit area. i'll move out. you can see it. people are setting up their tents. what happened is borders have been closing to afghan

4:19 pm
towns and cities. the government's affirmative action gives them quotas for university places and government jobs. they will be given the status they want. at the heart of the matter is trust. they say the community has been promised this, and they want confirmation. until then, they'll carry on the blockade. >> they are across the state and further. crops remanded. not getting paid, is an issue. >> translation: i can't go out and get food or a cup of tea. people are in their vehicles. >> reporter: many try to defy the block. they've had tires slashed. they disrupted businesses. many shopped along the protest

4:21 pm
>> the reason is they are demand. they are by far the most dominant social group. the dominant socially and economically. they make it difficult. the dominant group organising it and making a claim like that. the government has to go into that area themselves. >> so how will this agreement with a group that was already economically powerful, impact the sort of balance of power or dynamics between the different castes in india. >> this is limited. >> limited. >> this pattern of demands as a
4:22 pm
reaction to economic changes - others have done this. they have done this. so this pattern has become a pattern in india, where dominant groups, because of challenges, of unemployment, wealth, especially that dissatisfaction has come in to demand the reservation, because of the government groups. >> they know that it's a trend, it's not just the community, other influential communities are doing the same thing. >> what is the - what are the ramifications of that in the months and years to come if in each case the government gives in to them. reservations are in place because of a need for the caste
4:23 pm
system. and true resources overwhelmingly controlled by the upper class. if this is the way the revelation goes, demanding it, it's a negative effect. now, if the - if they are going to the reserve category, it will take most of it. i don't think it's a good solution for the future or a pattern for the future of india, but that is odd. >> does this mean further unrest down the line? part of the reason for the protests is perhaps the way the government is managing the government. will there be more unrest down the line. >> they wait until it arises. the real problem of unemployment and growth will be expressed through demands and reservations
4:24 pm
and the economic growth, and social spending. but it should be, in my view. the problem long term. that's the reforms we need. unfortunately, the most immediate expression of the groups in part of the country, is a demand for more. >> thank you very much. from kings college, london, for your analysis on that. >> thank you very much a 3-day standoff between fighters and security forces in india and kashmir is over. indian police killed three holed up in offices. six decide when a bus carrying police was attacked on saturday an international mission has been set up in hondurasous, it was set up following the outrage over a scandal linked to the country's president. david massa has more from
4:25 pm
neighbouring guatemala. >> reporter: in 2015 hondurans took to the streets in record numbers. their demands, an intergovernment corruption and unity. opposition groups called for the creation of international groups to tight corruption. >> on monday, after months of negotiation, the mission to fight against corruption in honduras will start work. >> the idea is to have a special mission that is going to be very close to the honduran authorities. they fight corruption and immunity. the two problems are extremely important, not only to the americas in general. but the idea is to give assistance to join the government, the institutional forces within the government. and to communicate with society. >> it's rumoured that international missions, a
4:26 pm
200 million corruption scandal, at the institute. the president admitted his presidential campaign accepted $150,000 from companieslinged to the scandal. >> it's a high profile case. without the power to carry out negotiations, max will have to rely with the judges. the question is whether honduras jobs have the political will to work independently. >> it's important to stay and determine that the mission is autonomous in terms of funding and goals, and working in an independent way. so i guess that the first year. we will have to look for this stretching of this nation. >> reporter: last year a united
4:27 pm
nations-backed commission led an investigation that took down dozens of politicians, including the government's president. >> experience shows that convictions can succeed. with a term of four years. they may have a similar opportunity for change. >> still ahead for you in the newshour. >> global energy giants finding ways to rebattle the energy mark. >> banks forced to freeze some acts. >> and i'm in rwanda finding out if african's football associations are happy to see the end of sepp blatter's reign as f.i.f.a. president.

4:32 pm
the february 12th truce is implemented. since it was great upon. russia continued bombing and bashar al-assad essentially said he will stay until he regains territory. i am sure that we'll see major changes. >> so what happens between now and friday, because nothing - everyone agrees that they will abide by it. what is different about this deal is we have specifics in terms of times and date. we have to agree time, what will moscow do for its part to make sure it happens? >> well, moscow can do several things. it could say that, or try to ask bashar al-assad to cooperate. he is not cooperating.
4:33 pm
in fact, i have seen several such matters saying that, look, where moscow is trying to cooperate, but bashar al-assad is being difficult. i'm skeptical of this, but we can see something like that playing out. >> what impact will it have on the opposition. we know that i.s.i.l. and the al nusra front are excluded from the deal, but it's not so clear cut, is it. because you have nusra in bed with them, and could sign up with i.s.i.l. >> that's a good question. i think it's unclear how this will play out. beyond that, there's questions of implementation, violation, should the truce take place. as far as what i see, we don't have an answer for that as well. what could happen is if it's implementation, if it happens,
4:34 pm
if there were modern -- moderate numbers of the opposition, they will still be hit. >> is there a risk for russia in getting involved, being engaged in a conflict in syria that nose know end. is there concern about that. could that prompt a witness to do its part in bringing some kind of cessation in hostilities ta allows the warring parties to look at what is happening next? >> at this point, in the short term, you know, the war in syria has not been very costly for russia. i have seen them spend about $4 million a day, something the russian military budget can handle in the near future. in terms of lives, nobody is dying on the russian side for the most part. so russia can stay in syria for
4:35 pm
some time. but for a more long-term question, there's no risk for russia, what is important is to save face. and, most importantly for vladimir putin to stay in power. he sees the bashar al-assad regime reflective of his own. if bashar al-assad goes, it could raise questions by him whether he has to go. >> thank you for sharing your views with us: joining us live from washington d.c. . >> with oil prices low, world in the global energy industry are in texas to discuss ways of rebalancing the market. it's not known if they'll decide on a short or long-term fix. and in july 2008 a barrel of oil cost more than $147. in 2015 it dropped to over 80. it had further to pull.

4:44 pm
region between 2015 and 2016 was asia and oceania, followed by the middle east and europe. the senior researchers in the arms and military expenditure programme says the numbers are significant given the ongoing dispute in the south. >> the reason they believe they can deter the other party into being more assertive in the region, i believe they have a better system. on who can have access to which part of the south china sea. it is something that is more exaggerated. it is stronger and goes faster. of course, we have to keep an eye on it. it can develop into an arms race of some sort. it's very important also that they export the arms to the

region. keep this in mind, and do not only look at the economic benefit of the selling of arms to the region. >> reports emerged that a chinese banks have accounts belonging to north koreans, after calls for tough sanctions. the south korean newspaper reports industrial and commercial bank of china, suspending transactions since september. it seems to be connected to strained relations between the two countries. our china correspondent reports. >> well, this particular report came from a south korean newspaper, quoting a number of unnamed sources. so we have to be careful. one of the sources was an official with the industrial commercial bank of china, based on the bank's branch on the border with north korea. according to this official, a number of north korean bank accounts were frozen in
4:46 pm
december. that is significant because it's well before north korea carried out the first of its tests this year. now, according to this official, other north korean bank accounts have been frozen in other parts of china. china is not the only place north koreans can put their money, after macau was shut down. if china takes action against north korea, as the governments of united states, korea and japan have been urging it to. this action is to direct it. it will not hurt ordinary koreans, it will be hurting those officials close to the regime. take the regime with money sorted in china. a spokesman for the ministry of chinese affairs said they had no knowledge of this matter. >> it's that type of year when the titans of the technology industry showed off new and
