and bangladesh signed an agreement to repatriate hundreds of thousands of the hinge of the questions about the details remain. a very unforgiving here and this is al jazeera live from doha coming up on the program catalonia as leaders say they plan to take their case against direct rule to the supreme court in madrid. kurdish peshmerga forces say they're stopping iraqi forces from advancing on more disputed territory. china has challenged lions president cheesey and pings political philosophy into the constitution. has signed an agreement with bangladesh which could see the repatriation of some of the hundreds of thousands of ranger who've crossed the border since august ministers from the two sides met in may and mass capital may put off earlier on
5:02 pm
tuesday the deal says that repatriation must take place in line with me and mass citizenship law which denies your rights six hundred thousand drew him to muslims of escape from the amount of bangladesh in the past two months they've been fleeing a military crackdown in rakhine state which was sparked by an attack by a ranger armed group against a mere man military outpost the ranger have reported rape torture arson and murder the un has described the crisis as textbook ethnic cleansing the mere mass government refuses to condemn the army one hour from florence lou it has any angle . now there are ten points of agreement covered under the memorandum of understanding signed between myanmar and bangladesh and tuesday and repatriation of refugees is one of them bangladesh is struggling to cope with the influx of refugees now unfortunately there's very little detail in the memorandum of understanding about how this repack creation is going to be undertaken but
5:03 pm
officials have said they want it to start as soon as possible now myung office shows however have said even before this memorandum of understanding was signed that any repatriation or verification process will likely be in accordance with the principles of a wood pattern agreement signed between myanmar and bangladesh in one thousand nine hundred ninety three now under that agreement there were one of three things that. could prove if they wanted to return to me and that is they either had to. hold a national identity card or some other documents issued by myanmar authorities or provide some other proof that they were resident in myanmar before they fled to bangladesh now with the myanmar military however on tuesday said that not only world the verification and repatriation process be done in accordance with this one thousand nine hundred three agreement but also in accordance with the nine hundred eighty two citizenship law and that is the law that has been used to deny india in
5:04 pm
myanmar citizenship so as you can see that's already a very difficult hurdle that refugees will have to go through. catalonia is regional government will appeal to spain's constitutional court of madrid's plans to take control of its institutions the spanish government says it will impose direct rule over catalonia from friday to counter what it calls an illegal bid for session the catalan parliament will meet on thursday to finalize its response to madrid let's take you live out of barcelona al jazeera as andrew symonds is that andrew what are we to make of this decision then to appeal to council to spain's constitutional court is there any point. good good point you raise there it was really predictable the government is insisting it's trying every knee possible every legal mind possible to turn over article one five five they claim it's no legal act of desperation on the
5:05 pm
part of the government and then tend to do that but at the same time there's another twist to all of this brinkmanship we're seeing as time runs by and that is the senate in madrid has issued invitations to call us to more of the captain and president also to mariano rajoy the spanish prime minister to have direct talks now dialogue is being called for by the catalans all along so they're in a position here there's been no ruling it in or no ruling it out the latest we hear from the council of governments here in barcelona is that they're looking at so many aspects to the whole thing that they come to me it's any shadow right now we don't have any all little consolation as far as law is concerned he's also in a slight difficult position because he's being categorical now that all the laws
5:06 pm
that have been broken. mean that what is the point in dialogue now and also there's another real killer blow to all of this and that is. the announcement from the spanish government that they will not countenance a snap election being announced by the regional government because that just won't stop the process of article one five five going through reminding everyone the article one hundred five is so the so called nuclear bomb in the constitution for catalonia because it takes all the powers away and it will mean the sacking of the counseling government and his ministers will be out of a job by this coming weekend and parties within the capitol and parliament by no means united over this issue of calling a snap election other. certainly not this is really put everyone at all that's why we're not seeing any quick response from the parliament
5:07 pm
they are working towards a plenary session it would seem but there's been no word on when that will take place that's a very big debate going on because there are so many things at stake here whether or not the elections take place which can't be county to actually give full backing to secession in the way the parties present it but then many people see it as a logical way for let's think about the people who had all the politicians a lot of people think that maybe a vote for the parties can go away rethink things and work out a solution the voters could all come out those who are full of secession and those who are against to vote for that party is that could be logical but then logic doesn't necessarily prevail in this crisis all right andrew many thanks indeed anderson instead live in boston. there's been more fighting between kurdish peshmerga and iraqi government forces near
5:08 pm
a key oil pipeline in the north the town of. is near iraq's borders with syria and turkey. come on to say they've stopped government. troops advancing towards the south of the town let's take you live now to the whole al-jazeera stephanie deca is that stuff what's the latest on the fighting. as you mentioned there was an exchange of fire this morning around thirty kilometers south of the area you mentioned which is significant because it's a border crossing between iraq and syria it's also close to turkey and the oil pipeline the core cook fan or pipeline currently still or was administered by the kurds runs through that so you can imagine the significance of that area that area however has been under the control of the k r g since one thousand ninety one so this is the question what kind of maneuvering is going on on the ground the u.s. secretary of state rex tillerson said just the other day in doha that what was happening was the repositioning of forces to the lines before two thousand and
5:09 pm
fourteen a lot is when the fight against happened here and that's when a lot of these front lines change particularly the fresh matter taking and holding areas that the iraqi army had left behind earlier on so this is what we're seeing and i think even though there's these calls for dialogue and both sides say they're ready for dialogue it's not really happening officially yet and you have these tense points particularly the border area of course any borders always crucially important to any country involved and we've got another incident in mahmoud's a southwest of ad deal between fresh and we believe the shia power military forces the hash so again i think it's tense people are saying it needs to be negotiated but certainly on the ground the guns are still pointed at each other ok the kurdish regional parliament has been sessions they what's been discussed. yes they've convened they discussed two main things really the events of the last week which
5:10 pm
saw this region news around twelve thousand square kilometers of what is disputed territory but it's territory they had been holding for the last three years and of course which. it was a source of huge income for them through the oil revenues there of course also internal kurdish splits aging which make this even more complicated so they're going to have to go shader talked about that but i think the only thing that really concrete key came out is a vote on when to hold parliamentary elections and they've now decided to do that in eight months time it was supposed to take place on november the first but i think yes there are more pressuring issues certainly at the moment for them to address things like more kurdish unity at a time when people will tell you that the kurds are perhaps one of the weakest they've been they seem to have lost a lot of international support certainly with what's happened over the last week so i think as sort of regrouping going on as well to figure out the way forward all right stephanie thanks to stephanie decker that live in doha. europe's refugee
