a coming up to learn his political crisis escalates with a rest of some of the region's ousted cabinet ministers. and u.s. secular state prepares to visit me in my on his agenda talks on their hengel crisis . inspired by freedom i read look at the art of the impressionists who were refugees in london. syrian state television says the army and its allied forces have pushed out of the eastern city of. last remaining syrian stronghold and the capital of an oil rich province bordering iraq the military campaign to recapture that is on again in september when the army managed to break its three year long siege on the city and its residents there's been hashim on the monitors tracking developments from on the turkey syria border
11:02 am
so it seems they managed to push them out and they're going to find their ass from . a city which has become politically destroyed by months of strikes and intense fighting between the syrian army backed by russian warplanes and shia militias and. i sailed there today earlier in the day there was some fierce fighting in tow in today birds. and then her media where i saw defense lines hold for quite some time until they were broken by in towns shelling now those areas have been told by the syrian army backed by different militias and they say that the start of the clearing operation to clear out the areas looking for suspected or potential booby trap buildings suicide bombers or snipers this city is now totally under the control of the syrian
11:03 am
army which is quite a significant development in the sense that it paves the way for the syrian army for the first time since the start of the uprising in syria to start expanding further in the east some part of the country is asking r.t. more about what it means for the syrian army the significance of this in the battle against isis and the bigger picture here. while it reverses the narrative that's been going quite some time which is the syrian army is losing the battle now it's no longer the case we're seeing the syrian army expanding reversing the gains made by the rebels or bed made by. all by the kurds this syrian army now is taking more territory and the total which was under the control of i still the opposition or the kurds is shrinking in some parts of syria this is number one number two now the army is going to set its eyes on come out which is going to be the last song. in syria. is on the border with iraq is some sort of
11:04 am
a gateway for for i thought it was crucial for i say because of the book about the could get supplies from iraq that could move further towards the some part of syria however there are some potential challenges facing the syrian army in the near future it is not in control of the very important oil fields which are in the north of the dealers always are still under the control of sunni tribes van and the which is the coalition of kurdish fighters i think the coming days we might see some fierce fighting between the syrian army and the about for the control of those oil fields tell us more about the oil fields and how i so used to fund themselves and the importance of this development. jane if you remember back in two thousand and fourteen when suddenly i sell swept through huge swathes of land in iraq and syria spreading their own version of what they describe as an islamic state saying that
11:05 am
they would like to spread that islamic state all over the world for them to be able to maintain that propaganda war they had to have financial means and they found that india basically we're talking about feels in their deserve that we're pumping pumping something like forty five thousand barrels a day and there were some estimations that i said was making hundreds of millions of dollars out of the oil trade in deal. with that cash they were able to recruit fighters from all over the world by weapons food and also encourage people to join the islamic kelly. this explains why they didn't declare. for example. capital in syria that narrative with the with a lot with started losing areas indoors or and oil fields has become the beginning of the end for in syria so by losing those fields there was the beginning
11:06 am
of the and all right thanks to that hashem i have. a belgian court could help keep the deposed leader of spain's catalonia region out of jail with an international arrest warrant for colors are expected to be issued on friday he missed a summons to spanish court on thursday because he's in belgium seeking freedom and safety the deposed leader only sacked cabinet are being investigated for sedition following last month's declaration of independence lawyer says his client will cooperate with belgian police but would appeal any belgian approval for extradition the deposed leader says thursday's jailing of some of his cabinet ministers in madrid is an attack on democracy. the spanish government decision to imprison the cabinet members of the legitimate government of catalonia is a very grave mistake it is a grave attack on democracy imprisoning political leaders who have ample citizen support is an act that violates the basic principles of democracy. is following
11:07 am
developments from brussels. lawyer here in brussels said that he told him that an arrest warrant had been issued against him and four of the cabinet ministers in exile here in brussels but the national court that was hearing the case in madrid said there had been no official confirmation of that but it does appear that this arrest warrant as you're aware from the warrant will be served against both bush tomorrow and his cabinet ministers here. probably very early on friday morning and there was a prerecorded interview by a local catalan t.v. station t.v. three of which tomorrow here in brussels we don't know where it was but it was a very sharp response to the events that have taken place during the course of thursday in the ports in the dritte and said that this was nothing less than
11:08 am
a terror attack as he called it on democracy and he warned the catalonians they faced a. very strong repression in the months ahead not repression was the word he kept using why did he use that word remeasure because if a warrant is served against him here in brussels if it can be proved there is a political motive behind. this arrest warrant then he has a very strong chance of receiving asylum here in belgium is not the belgian government that decides this case it is the belgian courts it except his lawyer and head of the brussels office of open your pain joins us live on skype from brussels good to have you with us so if spanish is a warrant for his arrest and he seeks asylum where does this leave belgium. well the good thing for a belgian government is that this completely this is completely out of their hands
11:09 am
this is in the hands of the belgian justice system and indeed they will have to look at some questions whether the justice system is sufficiently independent in spain what are this is all politically motivated or not but also important for a european arrest warrants to be accepted it's necessary deaths what this alleged in spain is also a criminal act in belgium i mean sort of going to take process then is it. well the lawyer put him on has said that the first stage at least takes one of the whole through two months before we get the first surge initial decision in belgium which then can be appeals and can go up to the highest court in the country. the whole focus saucy no officer does. bush amount goods also apply for asylum which can drag out takes even longer something does very much
11:10 am
he's playing out and wait does this leave him from a political point of view when he come to new to operate as he wants that well ultimately if it is not unlikely of course the belgian judge will decide to extradite which demands. from politicians i don't think it will go against a judge surely not because it does the ready very sensitive within the belgian government and then i think the multiple probably have to make up his mind if you go voluntarily to spain or if he he would be able to mentally rest it's how much concern is there over that about how madrid has played this rather heavy hand. well the belgian government together with slovenia has been one of the most outspoken critics in europe of the way madrid has handled this.
11:11 am
belgian prime minister has urged for dialogue and i think he's absolutely right because if you look at how spain has dealt with this referendum i mean i'm sure many people would agree that it was not legal but then to sort of crack down on it environ way is a whole different thing now also jailing elected politicians i mean that's that's going quite far also the prime minister of france who's very powerful in belgium has strongly condemned this so i think ultimately what's with madrid is doing is is they're making the case for independence much stronger not only in cuts alone here but also that international are there any tricky situation for the e.u. do you know as now need to seek proof that there is political justification coming from madrid for the war and if it if it appears well they are being arrest more and is
11:12 am
a very technical procedure should basically doesn't it just merely have to check if indeed this arrest warrant bryce's formally they don't have to look into too much into the actual details of the case the assumption is that spain can be trusted to know if spain with her or her request this particular spanish citizen to be extradited on the basis of something that is not criminal in belgium and that is not on a joint list a joint even a list of crimes that are recognized then judge could well refuse it but those are a lot of ifs it's appears to be thanks for talking us through the legal intricacies pretty crappy. thank you america's top diplomat will visit me in march to discuss the rehang a crisis secretary of state rex tillerson is expected to meet leaders and officials on november the fifteenth pressure is mounting on the white house to impose measures against me and miles government in the u.s.

senate a bipartisan group has introduced a bill which would restrict military cooperation until violence stops the un's refugee chief says it's time for the united nations security council to find a solution to the crisis on this boat to al-jazeera james bays about his recent visit to refugee camps in bangladesh i felt as i felt more than twenty years ago in those camps in eastern congo is the time when rwandans were coming by the hundreds of thousands context is different but the could dish and the physical conditions of this huge out floor in a very poor area without proper shelter proper sites without enough water without enough sanitation reminded me of those tragic moments in the ninety's when we had to deal with those emergencies we've heard a visit now by and son suchi to iraq own state the first time since this crisis
11:14 am
she's been there she's seen things for herself what does she now need to do the refugees the orange refugees have a right to return to their to their to their homes and rakhine state but to do that you have to recreate the conditions for them to feel safe to go back and that means . addressing finally the issue of citizenship which is really the fundamental crux of the matter here you've made strong comments on this do you believe that the security council has been strong enough or would you like them to take further action. i think the security council to use their jargon remains seized of the matter and that is already something i don't think they have found us often happens yet the unity necessary to propose and to put forward the solution you know if you think of syria all the years which we have waited for
11:15 am
the security council to hype of unity on on on resolutions on syria these are this is the difficulty this is why my message to the council today is lack of international cooperation which can happen here at the council favors the refugee flows or rather prevents solutions to refugee flows from being established and therefore these refugee flows to and so it's time for them to step up the council time to step up and to agree i would say this is the key word. ahead. he's strong he's committed he's smart. my president on trump ignored recent convention in picking the next u.s. central bank. and hundreds of journalists have been killed doing their job to take you to one of the most dangerous places in the world to be a reporter. from

federal reserve we understand that monetary policy decisions matter for american families and communities i strongly share that sense of mission and i'm committed to making decisions with objectivity based on the best available evidence in the long standing tradition of monetary policy independence the decision to replace janet yellen is not a surprise but it is a break with precedent the last three fed chairman more automatically be appointed even by presidents of the opposite political party i think it's very much a political decision and it's a very much a desire for president trying to say that he is replacing current fed chair janet yellen because she was appointed by obama and is essentially affiliated with the democratic policies not many people will know the name of the new fed chair not many people will care there is a new fed chair but the position holds enormous power over pensions over savings and over job prospects across the united states the fed steers economic policy in
