12:03 am
a growing list of diplomatic back and forth the relationship between these two nato allies started souring during the syrian civil war turkey upset the us didn't do enough against the assad government even angrier when the u.s. backed kurdish fighters and later armed them. then last year's coup attempt and it got worse blame to clerics between the golan who lives in the u.s. they wanted him extradited for his alleged role the obama administration refused and the trump administration hasn't moved on it either that was a big issue when he first met president donald trump but that was overshadowed by what happened when he left the oval office. turkish security officers violently attacked what appeared to be peaceful protesters outside the turkish ambassador's residence fifteen of them were indicted in u.s. courts and as a result the u.s. stopped a planned sale of small arms to turkey turkey further angered the u.s. when it agreed to buy a russian missile defense system equipment that wouldn't work with
12:04 am
a nato has indicated he would be willing to trade americans imprisoned in turkey for golan but given that would be hard to do within the legal system something he really wants the case thrown out against her citizen reza zurab who is awaiting trial in the u.s. for allegedly helping turkey of aid sanctions against iran and it was a matter of wanting it back then wanting the case to go away it wanting him not to testify not wanting any of the details about their role in helping iran evade sanctions coming out in the course of a trial it will be yet another chance for the already frosty relationship to cool even more political hang al-jazeera washington. and is a techie risk specialist he says these disputes threaten to shift the course of the relationship between ankara and washington. economically also in terms of turkey's security infrastructure its membership in nato its reliance on us the nuclear
12:05 am
umbrella sort of speak all of these are factors that entrenched the two countries into this alliance however as we see more and more often these various parts occurring these disagreements these. sentimental crevices emerging between the two countries that will contribute to a longer term shift of turkey away from the united states. and we will see probably the country seek to rekindle its ties with various other alternatives we have definitely seen president add one voice such intentions but again this is not something turkey can do overnight and any speculation about turkey having now become a russian ally as opposed to its alliance with the us these are exaggerated these things take much longer time and then than that iran is promising
12:06 am
a crushing response if the u.s. designates its elite revolutionary guard as a terrorist scrape the page was made a week before president donald trump is expected to announce his rejection of the irani clear deal once that happens the u.s. congress can then decide whether to reimpose sanctions a possibility that iran says it's taking very seriously it's a must ravi has this update from tehran. in the last few days the headlines here have been dominated by defiant rhetoric from iranian leaders who say that any actions by the united states to impose new sanctions or to abandon the two thousand and fifteen nuclear deal will be met with a strong response at a news conference iran's foreign ministry spokesman. has said that it would be a strategic mistake for the white house to place the country's revolutionary guard corps on a list of terror organizations and that he hoped for a more rational response from the u.s. president the language in recent days from the revolutionary guard itself has been much stronger the chief commander has said that if the united states was to take
12:07 am
such an action then its bases in the region would be considered strategic targets and that its troops in the region would be given the same status in the eyes of the iranian forces as isis fighters and even as countries who helped negotiate the nuclear dealers the united states not to take any actions to abandon it iran wants people to know that it will meet any new challenges from a position of strength it's posturing on both sides that is putting the obama administration's hard won nuclear deal in jeopardy. an influential republican politician in the u.s. says president trump is treating the office like a reality show and could set the nation on the path to world war senator bob corker the chairman of the foreign relations committee made his comments in a nice paper interview after fights on twitter with the president caucus says he's alarmed and concerned by actions in the oval office from washington alan fischer reports i personally have no bob corker has a reputation as
12:08 am
a reliable republican which makes his attack on the president even more remarkable in an interview with the new york times he accused donald trump of treating the office of president like a reality show but he warned his reckless threats on twitter could set the u.s. on the path to world war three such is the risk says the chairman of the senate foreign relations committee but he says i know for a fact that every single day at the white house it's a situation of trying to contain him it's not the first time bob corker has spoken out against the president after announcing last week he wasn't going to run for the senate again he felt bold enough to say this i think. sect a teller a certain sector a mattress and. chief of staff kelly. are. those people that help separate our country from chaos that can do it seems to upset president trump he took to twitter to claim that corker begged him to back you merely senate race but he refused that he asked to be secretary of state and was rejected and then you know expected corker to be
12:09 am
a negative voice corker decided not to let that pass remember this is an open exchange from two senior republicans he responded it's a shame the white house has become an adult daycare center someone obviously missed their shift this morning he then followed up with the interview with the new york times hoping and that more senators will really i go to her program has said and really perhaps put some pressure on the white house to tighten their act and really let some control on this president corker is said to be close to secretary of state rex tillerson who held a news conference last week to reaffirm his support for the president after it was claimed he called mr trump a moron let me tell you what i've learned about this president whom i did not know before taking this office he loves this country he puts americans and america first the smart center court he still has more than a year of his final senate term to run and could cause issues for the president and
12:10 am
his agenda if his feud with the white house continues and if other senators actually break ranks and express the concerns senator corker insists they also have alan fischer i'll just you know washington let's talk more about this with brad blakeman he's a republican strategist and a former adviser to president george w. bush as you can see he joins us from washington thanks for being with us on the program just how damaging do you think these comments are by senator corker. i don't think they're damaging at all to the president but it's unfortunate because i think it gives fodder to the enemies of america beyond our borders but senator corker i think is a little upset because it's clear he cannot win reelection that's why he's taken himself out of the race for reelection so i think he's a little bit peeved by that upset by it and he's taking it out on the president and it is unfortunate but it's a it's a fight of diminishing returns for him because donald trump will be president long
12:11 am
after senator corker is gone what do you say that and i know that the senate on the president disputes about whether or not he was running again but sensical cole says that his concerns a shed by needy every senate republican if that is true might they now not be emboldened to come forward and say similar things about the president i don't think so because it's not true and number one number two is they rise and fall with the president next year a third of the senate is up for reelection and the american people are not voting for donald trump they're voting for the entire lower house of representatives and a third of the senate so they're going to have to stand on their own record so i think they rise and fall with the president the republicans they have a majority and wishing the president ill is not going to help their efforts to remain in power does they have a right there to criticize the president to he fails that the president is actually leading the american people into another world war as he puts it he clearly believes that this president is reckless ill informed impulsive unfit for command
12:12 am
the various other people in high circles in washington who've echoed those. i have not heard those sentiments i've worked in washington for three presidents i live here i work here and i don't i don't hear that i don't think it systemically i think it's isolated but again these people if you looked at past their comments they every one of them seems to have an ax to grind in some way against the president they're not getting their way and so they they're acting out against him but leading us to war i think it's been the last eight years the a-bomb ministration who brought us the disastrous iranian deal and brought us strategic patience with north korea if anything it was obama who set us on a path to war not a president who's been in office less than a year but a president who says things like rocket and we will have no choice but to destroy north korea very provocative and i asked do you appraise personally off the way the president tweets and the way he behaves in public some i do it in some i wish
12:13 am
he would hold his father but. i think donald trump certainly i think everyone can agree is a president like we've never saw before and that's a comfort and it's also confusion. to try and figure him out but at the end of the day you know when he went after nato. what did nato do they started to pony up more money and be more responsible so this carrot and stick are good cop bad cop. way of the president doing business i think can can be very positive and it also keeps our enemies off guard which i think again is is something that should have been done long ago in america brad blakeman great to have you with us and your thoughts on this story appreciate it thanks so much thank you thank you. and coming up on this al-jazeera news hour the red cross cuts its operations in afghanistan after a series of attacks on its. secret trials begin in nigeria hundreds of
12:14 am
people accused of being members of book iran. and a very public statement from the v.a. pay is mike pence walks out of an n.f.l. game over the. full details with its books. at least twelve people have drowned boat carrying refugees from the desk capsized ten of those who died with children it is the third such accident since people started fleeing violence in mammals the kind states in august or the sixty people drowned when two boats capsized. on g.m. has more from cox's bizarre in bangladesh. with news that yet another boat full of refugees capsized while it was attempting to cross from me and more to bangladesh comes another reminder of the magnitude of this refugee crisis and the fact that
12:15 am
we're going to refugees are still trying to flee and come into bangladesh this area you see behind me these people that are here they all crossed by foot into bangladesh just earlier today we've heard horrific tales from them about what happened to them was a woman over there who told us that her husband was executed in the past week by me and large military there's a young boy over here showed us a wound on his leg said he got out when me and my army shot at the group that he was with very sad stories more reminders that this exodus doesn't seem as though it will in anytime soon that's one reason why aid groups humanitarian organizations are so concerned about the plight of these people. and a newly released video by the u.k.'s disasters emergency committee shows the huge scale of the range of crisis large numbers of refugees have been forced to settle in the bayou kali refugee camp that's just one of several in bangladesh around five
12:16 am
hundred fifty thousand written just arrived in the country from the amar fleeing the military's brutal crackdown in rakhine state there's a national committee of the red cross is reducing its operations in afghanistan seven members of its staff have been killed there this year six died in an attack on an aid convoy in february and last month the physiotherapists was shot dead by one of her patients another four workers have been abducted well earlier we spoke to the head of the i.c.r.c. monica's on a rally she says the decision had to be taken having lost seven precious colleagues and having had three kidnapped. it's clearly something we had not experienced in such a short period of time. in our thirty years in afghanistan we had certainly suffered security events in the past but not of this and tittie and this has
12:17 am
certainly prompted the situation additionally the last incident that has hit. in the heart of its acceptance in centered there has been helping parents of thousands of the most well noble people in afghanistan certainly triggered. more questions and therefore the decision taken. pressure is increasing on the castle and government to back down from its planned declaration of independence on tuesday france's european affairs minister says her country would not recognize the region if it's seeds from spain meanwhile catalonia is high court as requested extra security from the spanish national police to protect its building in case the decoration goes ahead and a whole has more from barcelona. no matter which side of the independence debate
12:18 am
one is on this is a sight a few in catalonia would welcome the national police drafted in after a supreme court ruling to guard the high court ahead of tuesday's address to parliament by the region's president carlos preached a moment it's a bit scary to see so many police in the streets because i am used to see them. but i'm not used to seeing so many bodies will not change yet and now they're here now we have them on our doorstep and feeling under siege. these police guys the have really hit us hard and it's i think it's very bad here at the moment a spokesman for the squadron catalonians police force said it had no choice but to accept the supreme court ruling. you know. we don't understand it at all we have been guarding the spear court of catalonia for the last twenty four
12:19 am
years and there's never been any reaction to our service so we don't understand it and we don't like it but it is a judicial destruction so we accepted. the extremely unusual you might call it provocative site of spain's national police on guard outside this important building in central barcelona is a reminder of just what sensitive times these are as this region and the whole of spain await a possible unilateral declaration of independence by catalonia on monday madrid again made it clear that an independence declaration would have immediate consequences not at. the ready for any circumstances because we are already vaccinated against the fanaticism of most of them all and any hope that he will return to sanity and serenity therefore it's necessary to consider all possible options with worked on all of them one option is to use special constitutional powers to revoke a couple of years of ptolemy if that were to happen they'd be far more to worry
12:20 am
about than the national police guard outside the high court don't know how al-jazeera barcelona. the vast majority of spaniards outside catalonia are basically opposed to any independence declaration many say the claim by some catalan nationalists that they were the only ones who suffered under franco's thirty six year dictatorship ignores history or insular reports from central spain . across the her i'm a river valley you can see madrid away in the distance. the people here maintain the relics of war in tribute to the vicious history of spain. eighty years ago the forces of fascism try to encircle madrid the battle of her armor is legendary this incline was called suicide hill by the anti fascist brigades twenty thousand died stopping franco from taking the capital. ok so this was eleven and nine hundred thirty seven at ninety one his memory is undimmed. your number their mockery and
12:21 am
the like of what my mother and i run to a house looking for shelter we thought it was the end of the world we heard the explosions they made a great impression on me i understood then that we were at war. at the local museum you can see how outgunned the empty fascists were faced with the aircraft and tanks at franco's disposal these men and women came from across spain and far beyond to protect york from fascism only two years before the outbreak of world war two. and then i think if we go after madrid was called the heroic city they fought tooth and nail if madrid fell the next poets agree franco would have won the war sooner they want to talk all about this here because it's so important not only for historians what happened here eighty years ago plays directly into the sense of outrage that many spanish people have about what's happening in catalonia right now the capsule as they say are using the campaign for
12:22 am
independence as a historical crutch to cover up their own sense of entitlement and victim hood the sense that the cats lands were the only people who suffered under franco when actually much of the rest of spain did too. in the nearby town which is nothing like as rich as much of modern catalonia the spanish flags are out in force large parts of spain suffered starvation after the war they will do it but the claims of the council on leadership for special sympathy. look you up in april but here we are sad and worried we can't repeat history during the civil war the town square was washed in blood it wasn't only one region that was suffering. history can be read in more than one way. the legacy of franco is used in catalonia for a new sort of nationalism here though in an age of new european divisions they say it is a reason for unity mournfully al-jazeera in the forum of early kenyan police
12:23 am
a fight on people protesting against plans to make it harder for the supreme court to a null and election. three protest as was seriously wounded in the capital nairobi a rerun of august presidential vote is due to take place in two and a half weeks after the course nullified hurrican yet his re-election citing irregularities the kenyan national commission on human rights has released new figures saying thirty seven people were killed in the process that followed the august election. we are being killed we're going to guess and shaw said what have we done wrong why is it that when can you also support his stagecoaches they are not tortured or peyton. simoneau coming to kenya is a democratic country and we want to allow people to play around with our rights as citizens we have a right to demonstrate right now one of us has been shot for no reason we are requesting the president to stop giving orders to hamas. let's go to nigeria now
12:24 am
where trials were due to begin on monday amid great secrecy the more than sixteen hundred people accused of being members of the armed group buckle her on the trials are reportedly being held behind closed doors by civilian court judges at a military facility there are reports that hundreds more will be tried once they finish rights groups say they're worried about the lack of transparency it's estimated around twenty thousand people have been killed and millions displaced during eight years of fighting between government troops and the armed group. we're joined live now by john campbell a former u.s. ambassador to nigeria and senior fellow for africa studies at the council on foreign relations in washington d.c. thanks for being with us on the program how concerned should we be that these mass trials are taking place behind closed doors. well we should be concerned we should be concerned because we will have no independent way of verifying how
12:25 am
fair the trials are but there are other reasons to be concerned as well i think first of all the numbers to be tried are very large sixteen hundred at least at first there are only four judges that have been chosen to conduct the trials. that means the trials will either be very quick or the whole process will go on for a long time and then finally most of those who are being tried have been detained without charge for a relatively long period of time and one has to question whether or not evidence has been gathered by the authorities or whether their detention was simply arbitrary one argument of the holding the trials in secret behind closed doors a nazi an open course is that some witnesses would have been too frightened to appear in open court i'm give evidence is there an argument for that.
12:26 am
i don't think there's much of an argument for it no after all one can always make that argument when ever we are talking about a war zone or an area where there's a great deal of where there has been an insurrection. governments need to protect witnesses it's as simple as that the house being of course as we know a lot of pressure all nigeria to defeat book or her role should the international community be welcoming the fact that these trials are going ahead as evidence that nigeria has been doing what it said it was going to do. i think the international community should welcome the fact that the trials are going ahead because at least the trials are each you dish will process up to now most of the detainees have been held without charge and many of the detainees have been held
12:27 am
for a very long time and the conditions of night in nigeria and places of detention are pretty bad. international for example has estimated that some thousands of detainees have died mostly from disease lack of water lack of food so yes the fact that the trials are going ahead means that there is a judicial process in place it remains to be seen whether it will be fair i. don't appreciate your time thanks for being with us on the sound is there a new south and. and there is still to come on that including. iran is. to punish them for the region independence.

12:32 am
the independence don't it's held last month and now kurdish punished by neighboring iran as well they accused of stemming the flow of the border towns. reports from northern iraq. it's 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 all right. if there was enough 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
12:33 am
a few months ago when across the border iran closed the dam on the little 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. farmers couldn't. and most of the harvest went to waste. but since you've been shut down the well. underground water is becoming scarce faced with this problem. third deeper well to save his fish farming business. also depends on the quality of water.
12:34 am
and clean water don't do that anymore from the first and it goes out from. 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 be those living in the area say they only get three hours of water. you can see where the water level used to be we build these dams. it's primary emergency reaction 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 crisis will grow. the little zab river also feeds into can lake one of two that produces hydro electricity in the kurdish region here to the level is going down so far negotiations between iran and iraq's kurds
12:35 am
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 up the coming up in order. from rival palestinian factions fatah and hamas are in cairo the talks on reconciling split the deal brokered by egypt follows a cabinet meeting last week which want to return to work of the unity government but. in the occupied west bank the two sides are even divided over the parameters for the upcoming talks. on the way out of gaza hamas officials not for the first time in recent weeks were exuding optimism the architecture of a deal had been brokered by egypt now it was for hamas and fatah to start work on the details in cairo face to face. we are going to cairo to discuss the mechanism of implementing the two thousand and eleven karo
12:36 am
agreements we already signed with matter which includes the p.l.o. preparing for elections and forming a unity government. but before the hamas negotiators even left it was clear the other side had different expectations senior. telling al-jazeera nothing had come of the twenty eleven agreement instead but i would present a vision for a unified national strategy for hamas to sign up to the most of this i do they want to have this. ever. this is what the. delivery of services would certainly be welcomed by garzon suffering daily deprivation the divide which began with gun battles ten years ago has combined with the israeli blockade scene gars a slide into economic and humanitarian calamity
12:37 am
a situation worsened by three conflict with israel in which thousands of palestinians died this year palestinian president mahmoud abbas imposed restrictions on salaries and electricity supplies increasing the pressure on hamas to seek a deal now he's insisting that any agreement prevents hamas is military wing from remaining an external alternative center of power. the buses position is that he refuses the equation whereby the palestinian authority governs overground and hamas governs underground so it seems the issue of arms is on the table even though it wasn't in previous agreements. for all the smiles on the show in gaza last week when the palestinian authority prime minister assembled his cabinet for a formal handover of power this reconciliation remains at a fragile early stage previous attempts to end the split have ended in failure there is early momentum this time not least as a result of egypt's intervention but now comes the harder test of thrashing out
