and if they have anything that they can bring to the saudis to the qataris to the rest of the blockade and say here's how we walk this back here's how everyone saves face but there's a compromise in the g.c.c. can be reunited so does d.c. have a plan we haven't seen any indication they do but then again often times that's what it's called diplomacy it's done in quiet and you don't usually know until something happens later and you can put the pieces back together and say that's what they did at that meeting usually they try to keep it quiet our job of course is to try and get him to spill the beans we hope to have a chance to do that just a couple of hours if anyone can you can patty we will talk to you again later on. let's go to my english are now though al-jazeera senior political analyst who's been watching the story from london you sent to him on first of all what do you make of what happened in saudi arabia today patty pointed out i guess you pitch to your audience don't you he's going to riyadh he's not going to go too hard on them re the gulf crisis. yeah but also came out
because there was a larger issue in which i think it's becoming more like the context for the gulf crisis and that the issue of containing iran and more specifically the future relations between iraq and saudi arabia and that was the focus of secretary television's visit to the region it's not obligatory yard because it's very important following the trump speech against iran on the occasion of a certification or decide to pick a sheen of the nuclear deal that the united states doesn't follow up in the region in order to create the kind of alliances and coalitions both in the middle east in europe and internationally against iran and for that the main corner store in issue here was a new relationship or a renewed relationship between baghdad and riyadh so for secretary teller certain
to contain iran and to fight terrorism you need to improve relations between prime minister our buddy who will be up for rerun in may twelfth two thousand and eighteen and saudi arabia as well as resolving the qatar issue or the qatar crisis or the gulf crisis because you cannot contain iran and fight terrorism while having this this unity in the gulf region so it's very important for the united states at this point in time to resolve the crisis crisis not only because i think qatar is on the right which apparently they do they think qatar is on the right and the other parties need to climb down the tree but they also think this is becoming a very central issue for the united states and its security interests in the region for this issue to be resolved and for. baghdad to be brought back into some sort of a coalition in order to continue on mowen do you think secretary tilla sin and
his boss president trump are on the same page with the gulf crisis now because they've always sort of seem to us or not slightly different quite different angles or is that actually not even relevant. it's funny you mention that because you and i spoke when this thing first began and we thought we didn't know whether that rex tillerson and trump were playing good cop bad cop or were there was a disagreement in the administration apparently there was disagreement in and ministration and a newly elected president with total inexperience in the middle east was basically many permitted by abu dhabi and riyadh in order to convince him that qatar supports terrorism and so on so forth forcefully so and apparently he was so he sided with with abu dhabi in the beginning but that still are certain as everyone now knows as
a former c.e.o. of exxon knows this region better than any other american diplomat present or past maybe since george shultz was secular state of the reagan administration as a former c.e.o. of back to work with major interests in the gulf region and would be that as it may rix dollars and secretary of defense mattis were able to convince trump that he was manipulated that in the end of the day i would not be notably and riyadh as an enabler was trying to create some kind of a regime change in qatar without coordinating that with washington at all basically going behind washington back in this very sensitive region during these very sensitive times and basically creating havoc in the gulf cooperation council and against carter now in washington apparently in that ramp and mr ation apparently including president trump there is a consensus in the foreign policy and the situation that so the arabia and the united arab emirates need to climb down the tree and that this issue needs to be
resolved diplomatically not last but at least six records that are certain of course is adamant on this but withdrawn you don't know who knows exactly mon bashar thank you for that we're talking to you again later on in the evening is this news conference at. here in doha remember the cargo prices latest updates page is still very much alive and active your first stop to keep up with all the latest developments and you should check in there later when rex tillerson news conference happens here and i did also find interesting opinion piece here looking at how the state department actually operates under this administration here john muhammad said it's more like a business venture and a pretty lean one at that that when they were expecting a press conference maybe within half an hour but who knows with these things but as soon as we have that we'll have you back now and in the meantime thanks very much neal. now a u.s. rebel group says it has captured syria's largest oil field from eisel the kurdish led syrian democratic forces are in a race against russian backed syrian troops to seize parts of the oil rich region
the d.f. have already pushed eisel from the areas main natural gas fields and the city of record after a four month campaign record was isis self declared capital. has more now from doesn't up near turkey's border with syria. by capturing the alarm our oil field which is one of the largest in syria. is definitely now going to have vital. financial resources to continue its quiet to continue expanding in there also financing it different operations like iraq where they have now where they are now in control but you know with the habitation of reconstruction you need more financial resources to be able to handle the situation this is quite a significant if it gives more strength more financial on the militarist for the u.s. the effort which is now emerging as one of the most powerful groups now operating in syria of the syrian army has crossed the euphrates and is also competing with
the s.d.f. to regain the territory lost to i still the syrian government says that it is determined to continue the fight until we capture all the. other kurdish factions and other syrian opposition groups and this is something that could put the syrian army in collision course with the closing of the coming hours because the syrian army is just about a few kilometers away from the same oil field that was captured today with the as the u.s. so we're talking about still a very delicate situation now facing the. trying to cut some more territory from in the very oil rich province of the. hundreds of buddhists in miramar took part. in a mob state capital against government plans to repatriate nearly six hundred thousand range of muslims who fled to bangladesh several buddhist monks join the protests as guilty as illegal immigrants range of muslims fled or

surrender our weapons they took the weapons officers received bullets in their heads the lapse in security is being questioned because security forces are on high alert and a state of emergency is imposed local media said the hilly terrain would have been ideal for an ambush analysts have explanations the operation is very sophisticated it's not the first of its kind it happened before happened in urban environments like the famous infamous one operation but this time i think it's was a very much more complex in a sense they were this is not you that the ministry of interior progressing is that they were actually. asked to go there because they thought of a camp that was going on training camp that was going on and while being on the offensive. and defended and killed them. no group has claimed responsibility for the attack leaving many unanswered questions and new concerns

a time when venice was a prosperous suffering state that fry for over a millennium before becoming part of italy a bygone era some hoping to revive. the future is a europe one of many different people we're not the only ones everyone has a right to decide it's only administration our culture has been forgotten our children are not told the history of the republic of venice but a history that was never ours. this is a strong sense of identity among the nations one of a region that remains an economic powerhouse providing about ten percent of italy's jaideep but ask anyone and they will say the region is not getting much in return and it's time for a better financial one they hope will come after taking part in a non-binding referendum that was approved by the constitutional court if you look
