longing to karla's push the moment until monday to say whether or not his declared independence of catalunya goes ahead with secession the spanish government says it will take away the region's political autonomy reports from madrid. madrid does not like being told what to do by the council lands for once parliament was united as the journalist speculated the cabinets agreed the spanish lion bit back against the catalan demands that their independence will happen the prime minister said if you say it out loud we will take back your powers no dice no deal and you have until monday. you've held a cabinet meeting and we've decided the catalan government must confirm whether or not they have declared independence regardless of whether it's going to take effect or not this is a requirement necessary before any other measures can be taken by the government
including invoking article one if you do five. so back it goes to barcelona madrid no society there is split some separatist wants a session now others a nervous half the population hates the whole idea how long should they wait we know there are very important governments and people around the world who are ready to assist in mediation we got the group of the elders with coffee and with a banking on with that one to two who are ready to exercise their mediation the only small detail which we are missing is that we have nobody on the other side of the table because it just said he was not accepting mediation all the while europe looks on surely not another country fracturing itself there is no support at all in brussels for the catalan independence movements madrid knows that it is the side with the powerful friends. many people in madrid regard roy's statements his demand
that catalonia clarify its position on independence as a shrewd one by putting the ball straight back in catalonia courts it potentially exposes divisions inside the independence movements that might buy madrid some time take the pressure out of the immediate situation but also leave the crisis open ended. where the protestors in barcelona go from here is a good question madrid would like nothing more than for them to turn on each other destroy their own movements that would rule out the need for mediation which madrid insists there is no place laurence li al jazeera which it. can cause for go from here. we don't know what he's going to say or when he's going to say it we haven't a hint of what the government's position might be from an interview with al-jazeera by a senior member of his coalition in which he basically says look what they're offering here is dialogue without preconditions they're talking about a framework for mediation. that really doesn't have
a lot of distance to travel because madrid has consistently said there's no place for mediation mr are in parliament reiterated that on wednesday afternoon there is however another avenue of talks which may have opened up that comes courtesy of the head of the socialist party and main opposition in madrid saying that he's reached an agreement with roy in the popular party to set up a commission in parliament to spend six months looking at constitutional reforms in the way that the regions are government basically to give them more autonomy now this begins to look like a real enticement to the catalans to mr peter morgan in terms of saying there is a way for you to end up with a constitutional settlement with greater autonomy but the price for that will be to give up independence altogether and that is a price that may be too high for mr amount to pay. us secretary of state rex tillerson has called on turkey to provide evidence for accusations that local u.s.
embassy employees were linked to the two thousand and sixteen failed could and expresses profound concern over the everest the u.s. embassy in encore suspended most of these a service is off for a staff member was detained encore vitaly action by canceling a math and existing visas and stopping issuing new ones because more. well late wednesday secretary of state rex tillerson said he wants to see evidence behind why two consulate employees from the u.s. were arrested within the last year one of those employees was arrested just a little less than a week ago the turkish government said that he was a spy and claim that he was linked to a u.s. based turkish businessman who turkey says was behind the failed coup a year ago now in addition to that the deputy foreign minister was visiting washington today he was meeting with the u.s. chamber of commerce trying to reaffirm the relationship with the u.s. the u.s.
is a very strong trading partner with turkey the two countries do about twenty billion dollars you know bilaterally every year and trade seventeen hundred u.s. companies do business with turkey he says it's that both sides are very dependent on each other economically and he is hopeful that the two countries can get past this latest crisis you know want to be very clear we don't want these dispute to last more than a second. we responded you know likewise because to a proud nation we are a sovereign nation. you know we seeing that. you know the decision to be reversed now additionally defense secretary james madison's he's continuing to work with his counterpart diplomatically on military operations in
turkey he said that they are continuing to talk again he reaffirmed today that turkey is a very strong nato ally to the u.s. turkey is also home to a very important and strategic air force base so everyone involved here is optimistic at least hopeful that this tit for tat so to speak over these pieces will be resolved quickly. joshua was a fellow at the german marshall fund a nonprofit aimed at strengthen incorporation between the united states and europe he says this issue has been a long time coming. it's been simmering this exploded and it caught everyone by surprise because it was a very technical issue that was announced on twitter in terms of these is being suspended the church responded in kind literally verbatim with the same these a suspension this is a first time is to nato allies have not been able to visit each other people the people exchanges they're trying to dress it up to say well it's these as it's not
that big a deal but this is a big deal and i think they want to resolve it both sides i mean these are two nato allies things from syria to cyprus to russian relations to turkey's internal politics with the domestic ongoing unrest that the organization has been accused of the failed coup i mean everything is at stake in some ways for turkey to save the u.s. in a regional alliance and this is a really big deal and it doesn't seem that in some ways is this. escalation in some ways something as technical as these that something as technical as going after a turkish citizen who works at the consulate this is an interesting escalation u.s. president donald trump has denied reports he wants to dramatically increase the size of the country's nuclear arsenal u.s. mania published the report citing three on named officials has acknowledged policy differences between himself and top republicans and his cabinet and congress bought he's rejecting claims he saw a ten fold increase in washington stock of nuclear weapons now to sing his senators
in the u.s. have criticized president trump for delay and commenting sanctions against russia in a joint statement republican john mccain and democrat ben cotton so the white house has yet to identify what challenges of the russian state should be sanctioned the spine and up to the first deadline they say the delay calls into question the trumpet ministrations commitment to the sanctions bill. canada's promise that justin trudeau has wrapped up his trip to washington d.c. a visit dominated by the future of the north american free trade agreement u.s. president trump suggested that tough talks to a welcome back to could fail. that mexico might be dumped from three country packs but traders optimistic about. the meeting with trump went wow the talks were held against the backdrop of another train to. the u.s. placed on a canadian made bombarding airplanes alan fisher has more from washington d.c.
. with a fourth round of talks drawing up a new north american free trade agreement underway here in washington canadian prime minister just into dog came to meet with president donald trump donald trump has been on the record since the moment he moved into the white house that he would like to see green and agreement that has been in place for almost twenty five years and both canada and mexico see until this point has been walking relatively well but don't want to see a new modernized agreement justin trudeau says that is understandable in the circumstances but says he may want to walk away justin trudeau believes there is the possibility that they can come up with a new deal and he says it's up to the politicians to convince people why it is such a good thing. part of getting these trade deals to move forward requires us to get support public support for these trade deals and demonstrating that we're hearing the concerns that people feel and responding to them i think helps significantly in
making the case that trade can and will be good for all citizens before justin trudeau came here to the canadian embassy to address the media he was sitting in the oval office with donald trump point donald trump said whether or not there was a new deal really still is in the hands of the negotiator so it's possible we won't be able to make a deal and it's possible that we will we have a great personal relationship and we have a relationship now as as two countries i think. but we'll see if we can do the kind of changes that we need we have to protect our workers and in all fairness the prime minister wants protect to. can the people also the three governments a third of time feel at the end of the year to come up with a new no agreement justin trudeau would still believe that possible but you go from here in washington to mexico we'll meet with the president to discuss the progress in the thought of what to do if there can't be an agreement still ahead on the
