moving into it live with military observers is a lot to be worked out there that will be discussed no doubt about it whatsoever and there's also a number of other issues no doubt about it whatsoever and there's also a number of other issues including the s four hundred missile system it's a russian system and it's been sold to turkey which is a member of nato and that presents a problem not only with with nato not having the compatibility but also in terms of relations with the west they seem to be moving away from the western more towards russia this is what warm analyst made of the situation. putin is in turkey to draw to wage between turkey and the west. that he has drawn in the first place and he's doing this very successfully but it turned in limbo are there are similar current
8:08 pm
issues on which turkey and russia and i have common interests and our need to work really close in with you know one of them obviously is the most current one. but also this situation in northern iraq in the aftermath of the referendum tell me. tell us a little bit more about what we're going to be discussing. well of course the syrian war is very much going to be the main issue and possibly turkey is looking towards some sort of concession some sort of payback for its efforts to relate to the opposition groups by possibly getting some leeway in terms of the presence of the syrian kurds particular the y. p.g. and in territory around afternoon right across right opposite to the border of turkey doesn't want the kurdish presence there and it wants russia to help it in that situation furthermore we will see discussions it seems on the iraqi kurds
8:09 pm
issue whether or not russia is in agreement with president urged one's assurance that he is considering switching off the oil flow from the kurdistan region russia does have some interests in this commercial interests involved in the investment in the oil and gas industry in the region even though russia has said that it backs the territorial integrity of iraq it hasn't been as outspoken against the referendum as other states so those are the two primary issues that will be on the table felicity and thank you. all turkey has threatened to impose crippling restrictions on oil trading with iraqi kurds after they backed secession from baghdad the iraqi parliament is also urging the government to send troops to take control of oil fields health by kurdish forces kurdish officials say they're not
8:10 pm
worried and they can withstand an economic blockade because they are self-sufficient hot abdulhamid reports from just outside avail. coming from iran and turkey. they consider this referendum a threat to their own national security you have to bear in mind that they have a sizable kurdish nation and those two countries while the referendum was happening here they were sort of celebrations or they were even messages of support from those kurdish populations whether from iran or from turkey. actually on the celebrations the night of the referendum itself. who had crossed the border where to come here not to vote but to be part of that. that it was very symbolic for them even if it had no direct rick berke arsenal that they were hoping for that it would be the way for them to also forge ahead with some

8:12 pm
for the death penalty for this year and some of his supporters and that is just what this sentencing is not only has all this year been sentenced to death seven others in connection to this case have also been sentenced to death as well there are a number of kohak used in this trial they have received prison sentences a very in the links but the death penalty here in lebanon itself is controversial the last time capital punishment has been carried out here was in two thousand and four it also requires the signature of the president for an execution to be carried out it also needs to be said. and his coat accused can appeal this sentencing and one would imagine that they will but this case is a very deeply controversial and polarizing case here in lebanon it really put into sharp focus the complexities of the region particularly at the start of the syrian
