fully back to bill this is al jazeera live from doha ahead catalans repair the old secession those but not everyone in the region is happy about it. plus the world's atomic watchdog voices alarm at the fast pace of north korea's nuclear weapons program and. i appeal to the leaders of myanmar including military leaders to condemn incitement to racial incident violence and that the u.n. declares the will hinge a crisis the world's fastest developing refugee emergency with more than half a million fleeing tobacco that. the kurdish leadership in northern iraq is preparing for international flights to seize landing in the region baghdad has ordered foreign airlines to stop flying into the kurdish regions airports from fifteen. hundred g.m.t.
that's in four hours time this follows monday's vote on to session which passed overwhelmingly domestic fries will still be permitted to fry interurban and cinema nia the move is part of an effort by baghdad to make the kurdish regional government can solve the result of the referendum iraq's central government is also demanding control of oil revenue and border crossings it says the vote was unconstitutional live to al-jazeera hoda abdel-hamid who's sacked erbil international airport for us how to tell us about what's been happening there and how worried are people about the suspension of. a certain degree of worry were we have been witnessing throughout the day is people leaving specially those of the kurdish jasper allowed to come here either on holiday or to take part in this referendum and say you know they had to cut short their time in the kurdish region visiting their families simply because they didn't know what was going to happen next and they didn't feel comfortable as. to go to fly to either
fly to baghdad or to go by road to baghdad because the roads are still open there now we've also seen over the past few hours or so a good number of foreigners leaving some of them saying they were scheduled to leave and some of them say that their companies told them to leave earlier than scheduled now the old two more flights left one to. istanbul and one chooses and after that we do the billboard any more international flights there is one flight to baghdad today at this at this stage it's not clear to us whether it will fly or know what is the kurdish regional government going to do harder to respond to these restrictive measures not just from the baghdad government but also from turkey as we've heard in the last few days a turkish leader threaten a number of pinney's of measures and also iran as well what is their plan going for . what's the next phase of this process to become separate from iraq.
we haven't heard about what they will do what we've heard his condemnation. saying that steps taken by baghdad tantamount basically to collective punishment that they were unconstitutional. this region being a semi autonomous region with its own government and its own parliament is allowed to take measures without approval from the government in baghdad but there is a certain level of worry among people here to celebrate the referendum was not unexpected. imagine that they would be a certain number of measures taken in retaliation of this referendum now baghdad has told. kurdish president. something he simply cannot do
because there would be a popular uproar he has the support of most of the kurds and you can see the results of this referendum ninety two percent saying yes. independent state now this is start anytime soon i don't think. baghdad is refusing to have any kind of the bush and the prime minister. to dialogue. on the referendum results if they start they will be extremely difficult starting from what to do with the borders with what to do with. the sharing going to happen. for example baghdad will easily be. percent of the of iraq it's a lot of money coming into the country and that would not go without a battle. thank you very much for that hard to have made life for us at our avail

european leaders are in a stony eye to discuss the digital future of the bra the summit aims to look at how the internet can help create growth and jobs cyber privacy and security laws are also on the agenda chalons is covering the summit for us he joins us now from his sone as capital tiling glory. you know this is basically about all these e.u. leaders sitting down together and talking about how they can keep europe in the digital game for the next ten years or so fighting off stiff competition from the u.s. and china they're going to be talking about things like the government's cyber security how to digitize europe's economy and industries they certainly won't be seeing eye to why about everything there are countries like france germany italy and spain that wants a new tax regime for the big internet giants like google and amazon who they say on
paying enough tax into their countries where they're actually selling their goods and services and also there are the there's the perennial problem of how to square cyber security national security with data protection and data privacy and that's something that i want to ask our guest about and dress could to work for. it which is the company that designs estonia's sort of cyber infrastructure basically doesn't it what's estonia's approach to that issue of data privacy versus national security the key principle of that approach is that we design the privacy into the systems that we design and by the systems we design i don't mean just technical infrastructure but also the legal and the business processes running those those technologies we try to make sure that. our dates is for example less valuable for commercial use if it's breached. than it might be you know in some
other countries and people are using their data here don't they can restrict access to it and stop politicians or doctors are looking at it right they only and they have the absolute ability to actually see who has been accessing that data and that is one of the other key sort of principles of allowing that citizen to be in control in a sense we call that the small brother. principle allowing the small brother to look over the shoulder of the big one for a change so that if there's bits of information being changed exchanged between between agencies about me i can actually see who and why did that the information was exchanged so that is a system that does seem to be working here in a stone. so you want this to be a model to be replicated around the european union we have different countries so we with different experiences of national security threats and also very different political cultures so do you think it can actually be replicated yes i firmly believe that the key principle of security by design and putting the citizen in
power can be replicated what the privacy means and what what the security by design means in practice in different political context that can vary but the basic idea i think is very solid and can be replicated and after all that is what why stone has been successful at hearing to that principle and therefore any other country as well ok that was from cybernetica back to you in the studio thank you very much for that challenge for us in tallinn estonia the european commission. would take america. to make enough progress to begin trade negotiations in the coming months he made the comment arrived for the. prime minister. agreed. i think on the rights of this definitely a matter of life and a better mood coming out of the negotiations between the summer and yeah they would say this but i think it's still very evidence that. there's more work to be done
we're not yet stage so we can say that which progress is being made to talk about a new relationship a trade. i don't label to make that call until much later in the month. russia and turkey have agreed to work more closely in an effort to end the conflict in syria president putin has been an anchor of the talks with the turkish leader a ship type beto on they've bought opposing sides in the syrian conflict now the two leaders have agreed to push for deescalation zones in syria as it led province russian opposition leader alexina vonnie says he has been detained in moscow he is one of the most prominent critic solve russian president vladimir putin he organized mass them inspirations against corruption and call for more democracy in india at least twenty two people have been killed in a stampede at a railway station in mumbai thirty more were injured on a foot bridge local media say it was triggered by overcrowding after heavy rains. now twitter has emerged as u.s.
president donald trump's preferred method of communication despite many calling for him to stop he uses it to promote and defend himself and bypass traditional media to speak directly to americans and the world given elizondo looks at the history of how us presidents chose to communicate. ladies and gentlemen the president of the united states when president franklin roosevelt wanted to urgently speak to the american people. and he took to the radio we are going to win. the peace but we welcome change and opens in one thousand nine hundred seven president ronald reagan harness the power of television to give a historic speech at the berlin wall mr gorbachev tear down this wall. and when president barack obama wanted to talk to the american people about climate change and everybody he chose to do it on his first ever facebook video post this has been my backyard for the last seven years over the years the ways presidents
communicate to people has evolved when the history books are written about donald trump's presidency there will certainly be a chapter dedicated to little bluebird specifically his political use of twitter the most important role for president of communication is not necessarily in swaying opinion but in setting the agenda and dictating what it is that americans in the media are talking. but trump's tweets are a window into his thoughts and were the subject of a recent satirical donald trump presidential twitter library exhibit in new york. the most famous tweets were framed in gold a jab at the president's love of bling even this puzzling tweet where he typed a word nobody knew how to pronounce let alone what it meant they are being read by so many people across the world or any fluency in policy they're affected how we see him in other countries c.e.o.'s trumps advisors have urged him to slow down
with the tweets warning he could be held legally accountable for any that prove to be misleading or false but trump's love of twitter not going away unable to tame trump's twitter finger a top white house official recently said anything. trump tweets should now be considered an official statement from the leader of the free world gabriel's and oh how does it or washington. private companies are leading the way with plans to put humans on mars aerospace giant lockheed martin wants to set up a base camp on the red planet and space x. founder unmask intends to colonize mars much sooner than previously thought yarber melhem has more from an international space conference in australia industry heavyweights and space lovers converged on adelaide for this year's international astronautical congress the highlight of the event was without doubt space royalty entrepreneur and billionaire ilan musk he's long made it known he wants to make
humans and interplanetary species to make sure we don't go the way of the dinosaurs now he says he'll start a colony on the red planet with the first human flights in twenty twenty four. or that the base starting one. than most horse eps then circling of the city then because of the bigger. yeah and at that time tom foreman was. making a really nice place to be. lockheed martin to has plans to get humans to the red planet it revealed more about its blueprints for a mars base camp that will orbit the moon and act as a launching pad for human missions to mars it believes it can have an operational in a decade in about five billion years give or take the sun will eventually be going to
a red giant it will expand and devour the earth so at least in five billion years we need to have somewhere else now how much do you need to worry about it in twenty seventeen fair question but that eventually you've got to get off the planet if we're going to continue as a as a as a human race at the moment all we have on mars two rovers like this replica of the curiosity and while there are many companies here that believe humans will journey to mars within this generation and possibly even colonize it there are doubts about whether mass should be considered a backup plan to. all missions to mars need the help of one of three nasa deep space command centers this one is new strains capital camera it operates like air traffic control but the space sending commands and receiving signals from spacecraft and all the vital communications for any human missions to mars will also go through here i think one of things that journey to mars will tell us most
especially is that really in reality earth has always got we have to look after this planet first and foremost going off to mars is going to have to create a whole range of new technologies to survive in an environment that's trying to kill you every second of the day and there's no shortage of companies working on those technologies to keep humans alive in deep space technologies that if nothing else could perhaps be useful to humans on earth to yarber malham out zero adelaide . and as always plenty more news on our website al-jazeera dot com the very latest on all of our top stories on there. are the headlines on al-jazeera international flights to the kurdish region in iraq are due to stop in less than four hours time baghdad ordered for an airline to stop
