talking about the problems between the two countries only we cannot stop anywhere there are so many issues this point are very much in unchartered territory as far as the can there is there is we have not seen such suspension of visas big being the countries and now the cherokee also suspended visa a against the u.s. government there is kind of a chicken game between the capitals but the same time does to paralyze naturalize and allies for about seventy years with call each other as strategic ally verkin in many areas across the world this kind of tension this kind of fight between the capitals i think going to escalate and going to make it turn which is already isolated in the neighborhood. will make things very much
much more difficult for ankara. autonomous kurdish region for last month. meanwhile kurdish. water to border towns. ports. been a tough season for many kurdish farmers and there is concern that this is just the beginning of a series of bad ones. usually produces watermelon string beans and. now he has to make choices as the quality of his crops has declined. if there was enough i could plant this land but now we only work on two out of ten . we need to estimate how much water there is before working the land and we have to make a choice if they continue like this we will have to abandon the land. the
problem started a few months ago when across the border iran closed the dam on the river which is shared by both countries some here say it all started when the kurdish referendum was first announced but iran says it needs the water for its own domestic consumption. here it meant that during the summer season farmers couldn't get their land and most of the harvest went to waste farming here depends on shallow wells and normally. but since shut down the well. underground water is becoming scarce faced with this problem. i mean third deeper well to save his fish farming business. model. the lack of water.
on the fish the size also depends on the quality of water thousand six hundred twenty. floors of fresh and clean water we don't do that anymore from the first and it goes out from the last. but this is not sustainable for much longer many subscribers have also gone dry. the water is trickling back again but the flow remains at less than eighty percent of what it used to those living in the area say they only get three hours of water. you can see what the water level used to be we build these dams. it's primary emergency reactions so we can stock some water that can feed the city and the areas the pumps need a certain level of pressure to function water is not something to be neglected and it's not replaceable i think the crosses will grow. the river also feeds into can lake one of two that produces hydro electricity into kurdish region here to the
level is going down so far negotiations between iran and iraq's kurds haven't gone anywhere and kurdish authorities have now been threatening to cut off water supplies to central and southern iraq to provide for their own. but at the coming in the order. of things twelve people have drowned after a capsize as it was carrying the hang of refugees from myanmar to be. ten of them with children as the third time a vote has kept people's tongues of flame violence. in august more than sixty people drowned when two boats capsized last month mama june is following developments and cox's and beyond. this boat carrying or hinder refugees saying close to shop ordered whip on the southern tip of bangladesh it really speaks to the magnitude of this refugee crisis despite the dangers of trying to cross the river more and more of these boats are still trying to cross now this is just the
latest incident we're told that some survivors have been found but many are still missing in that many of those still missing are children so there's a lot of concern that the death toll will may go up in the hours ahead now in september there were at least two. incidents in which boat sank or hinder refugee that were trying to cross for me and more into bangladesh and again this really goes to show these people are so desperate fleeing for their lives trying to get to bangladesh despite the dangers now the u.n.h.c.r. has said that there is really no end in sight to this crisis and that's why there's so much concern right now you have over half a million people crossed for me and more into bangladesh just in the last six weeks it looks as though that flow that flow of people that exodus won't stop anytime soon these makeshift camps that they are going to they are overcrowded the conditions are on hygenic unsanitary there is not enough aid that is why there is a lot also still so much concern that epidemics could break out and diseases could
spread in the meantime the u.n. aid workers humanitarian organizations trying to get the international community to respond more vigorously to this crisis which they do which they do not believe will get any better any time soon. the top administration has outlined a hard line policies in their list of principles to congressional latest it was to reduce immigration by limiting the number of green cars for family members of u.s. citizens to employ an additional ten thousand and a question officers and judges to deport criminals and on the company children. the white house has also addressed the issue of people who came to the u.s. as children his dream is to protect them from day four taishan congress last a profound thing for a wall on the border with mexico democrats have ruled out that saying it's far beyond what's reasonable. the same u.s. republican senator has president trump's twitter activity is hurting the country's
