10:02 am
the cause of the current range of crisis which has forced hundreds of thousands of refugees to flee across the border to bangladesh the report says that miramar has been seconded gating range of people in a quote an open air prison by confining them to their villages it adds that me a moral authority is a guilty of being openly racist towards the river insurance's rakhine state where a military crackdown has been going on is a crime scene ranger living in meum are also denied citizenship on the basis of their ethnicity many of them are deleted from official records making it almost impossible for those who fled the violence to return home now and a nice start is amnesty international senior director for research and she told us what now needs to be done. in relation to the ongoing system of a party that we describe in our report i think the world is way too willing to buy into the restoration presented by the myanmar authorities about the need to convert
10:03 am
terrorism about the need to establish security and that's why we felt it was a very important moment to remind both myanmar officials and their international counterparts that absolutely no considerations be it security or the need to convert terrorism can justify the ongoing crimes against humanity to justify the system of a party that. we can ask him to score he's our correspondent who's a million miles biggest city young go on and scott's amnesty international's very powerful report clearly release at a time to have maximum impact at a time when miramar is hosting asian and european foreign ministers. absolutely martine and it's interesting you know the we're hearing that maybe about it will start to trickle out there's a press conference was held at the end of this meeting this two day meeting with foreign ministers fifty plus the myanmar government they don't use that term and
10:04 am
this is goes kind of into the root of the problem and what is discussed in this international report the. minority muslim minority living in rakhine state was treated very differently than any of the other citizens of this nation in fact they don't call them or because they don't consider them to be citizens of myanmar they consider them to be immigrants from bangladesh but one thing that was interesting was said yesterday monday during this meeting on san suu kyi the de facto leader here in myanmar she said in generally speaking she didn't say this to what's been happening in her country in rakhine state but she said that illegal immigration globally is at the root of the problem when it comes to the conflicts and tension around the world and so she kind of focused on that obviously underneath that is that she's referring to also what's happening in her own country marty and that clearly the issue is not on the. not on the official agenda of this meeting but many of the foreign ministers who are in attendance in that neighborhood that she
10:05 am
been to cox's bizarre and seen the plight of those refugees and i'm just wondering on the sidelines of this conference what kind of momentum if any has been brought about and the chinese are particularly interested. that's really the chinese foreign minister who is attending this meeting yesterday on monday he said he came out with a three step program to help with the situation work and they said they'd like to play a more constructive role china in dealing with the region's issue and that is he said first and foremost there needs to be a peace agreement reached that they'll be a cease fire of sorts in rakhine state then there needs to be a repatriation program and then there needs a lot to be a long term program to prevent any further conflict down the line now it's interesting we talk about repatriation also attending this meeting the foreign minister from bangladesh and we know that he and non-science hoochie are having discussions over the potential repatriation program and we're hearing word two there are reports that on song suchi is hopeful that they'll be some kind of
10:06 am
agreement by the end of the week when it comes to repatriation of a hinge coming back to myanmar and but it's a very very difficult issue martine that is because at the root of the problem again is the documentation of the range of people in myanmar and our citizenship or showing that they actually lived in myanmar that is going to be a very big issue when it comes to repatriating some of those refugees who fled to cox bazaar over there in bangladesh so that is going to be a very sticky issue if you will the foreign minister from bangladesh here for that meeting he's going to stay on for a couple more days we're hearing so that is going to be the focus here in myanmar moving forward out of this foreign ministers meeting but you know let's see what happens out of the meeting if there is any really kind of definitive mention of this again as you mentioned on the sidelines there were discussions there was actually some hopeful comments coming out from european nations saying that they had discussions with on song suit and they were hopeful that things were going to be moving forward again particularly when it comes to repatriating some of those
10:07 am
six hundred thousand plus for him to refugees who fled to bangladesh all right thank you very much indeed for that scott hyla live that in me amar itself let's go to the other side of the bulletin now the border into bangladesh coke's is bizarre . that's in southern bangladesh as with so many of these hundreds of thousands of range of people who settled there found a certain amount of refuge a correspondent there is time for child free and time yesterday we saw the many of the ministers not yesterday a couple of days ago we saw many of the foreign ministers who were there in myanmar now to loring the conditions in which so many of these are refugees are having to endure do you get a sense that from their one on one being able to see for themselves you get a sense that this changed opinions at all. very much of course they gave very sympathetic state men they said there with bangladesh down the stand the humanitarian crisis the saw the plight of the refugees here
10:08 am
there was a congressional delegate led by the u.s. ambassador those two senators and three congress men that they say that what they saw as essentially what amounts to be basically a crisis situation on the other side on the bottom as well as on this side and the european foreign minister as well here as well as a high representative of the european commission was here there were other delegation has visited recently including the spatial representative for the secretary general of the u.n. she time this what she had from there i mean the refugee is is a very commanded and committed and orchestrated violence against rowing the woman on the other side of the border the most important part is for months not only out of other journalists international journalists local journalist has been interviewing this going directly she is on the stories are very similar you know. rest killing off innocent people's ghetto like environment not allowing them to come out needing special very fixation codd so this is not something new we have
10:09 am
range of actually just days ago near i think similar stories they have said look thousands of refugees are stranded in bitches on the other side often out in the jungle they want to get into buying about this but there's no boat so i was about a boat because the bottom of this government has put a severe restrictions on any fishing boat or private boat plowing enough rebar crossing and your refugees into this site so they've tried to cross through the land boundary so the crisis is by far not over and it's me on mari so confident about the situation why and they're lying international journalists humanitarian aid agencies or foreign representatives to go visit there are kind state those areas that are in crisis situation and that is a key question the international diplomats should be asking not the net aid dave. is trying to say that is the issue of immigration and extremism that is the narration she's trying to change from humanitarian crisis into something totally different all the diplomatic talk and everything is not producing any tangible
10:10 am
result on the ground. all right daniel are still suffering on broad side all right . thank you very much indeed live in culture is this. now here is president bashar al assad has met the russian president vladimir putin the pair spoke in the black sea resort city of sochi it was on monday according to the kremlin mr putin told president assad the fight against armed groups in syria is close to ending he said the one to save are finding a peaceful political settlement will be the key issue let's go live to our correspondent rory challenges in the russian capital moscow rory this is an important meeting at a very significant moment in terms of the syrian crisis. this i think is a very canny piece of putin stage management i mean what we have here in the
10:11 am
lead up to a meeting that he's going to be having on tomorrow with the presidents of iran and turkey and also a an opposition conference that supposedly supposed to be taking place in riyadh in the coming days ahead of both of those events up pops in such with. plenty of putin basically being introduced to the military top brass the people who essentially have saved his skin it's a message to anyone that wants it's gone so that the turkish that the cattery is that's the saudis that the united states and the messages said is not going to is ours you have to deal with it and it also is a message to assad himself. julie played alone basically saying to the to the generals and to putin it's the russian army that saved syria as
10:12 am
a state and that means i.e. saving his own skin. rory chalons thank you very much indeed but meanwhile the head of the largest saudi backed syrian opposition group has resigned riyadh his job was made leader of the high negotiations committee the agency in december twenty fifth mean he his spokesman and several other officials are set down ahead of that conference that you just heard rory mention which is due to take place in saudi arabia and a new round of u.n. sponsored talked to the jew to start in geneva not long from now a statement from mr said he didn't say he didn't actually say why he was quoting now the agency is the main anti government umbrella bloc which includes political and armed groups well jonathan crystal is a fellow at the world policy institute he specializes in the middle east. i think that there are two possible reasons you know one is it's of quite a thankless job i think that he's had over the last couple of years he is acting as
10:13 am
an umbrella group for a very wide range of organizations that really have competing goals competing interests don't necessarily work with each other some of them show up sometimes and not other times and it's in some ways it's a bit of a p.r. sort of position it plays well to the a western audience it plays well to the other powers in the region to make it seem like they're someone speaking for all of these groups when in reality they don't so i think that there's a certain frustration that anyone would have in that circumstance now the timing comes not only before these meetings but it also is time to around a lot of. a flurry of activity from saudi arabia in the region and so you know it is too early to know for sure what is going on but you know it could be that the saudis had a particular replacement in mind it could be that he was frustrated that things
10:14 am
were going nowhere and didn't want to go through a sort of farcical display at these meetings but i think we'll find out in the days to come i imagine. we've got a lot more to come here it out there including how the future of communities in nigeria's oil producing region hinges on a court case happening in the u.k. . twenty years on we take a look at how south korea's economy is going from boston to boom. with. the with. the i. think the quite ning downforce now in the southeast corner of europe this is jim here border some very very heavy downpours a lot of flooding and we also saw some very strong winds as well but that system is now pulling away towards the east and taking that heavy rain with it so force on tuesday then turkey still going to see some very heavy downpours
10:15 am
a fair amount of snow as well before seeing greece should be a full comma and brighter day for the northwestern parts of europe is a bit different here we've got a lot of clouds and rain rolling in but as well as that we're also seeing some malls there as so fourteen degrees will be the maximum there in london force in zurich will be getting to around eleven that milder than pushes its way towards the north safe of the temperatures will be rising on wednesday will be up at ten the leading edge of that mild air there will be hitting the cold air there so still see a fair amount of snow as it sweeps its way across scandinavia now for the other side of the mediterranean largely fine and dry for most of us here not particularly warm though if you are along the north coast temperatures generally hovering around twenty degrees for a balance that will be up at around twenty two for us on wednesday will be seeing more in the way of cloud that will be making its way across libya and this will be giving us one or two showers most of the showers there are across the central belt of europe making their way towards get on. with.

10:21 am
sponsors but his secretary of state rex tillerson isn't giving up hope that the crisis can be solved through negotiation you have written the reports now from washington. president trumps of the designation of north korea as a sponsor of terrorism was long overdue you should have happened a long time ago should happened years ago in addition to threatening the world by nuclear devastation north korea has repeatedly supported acts of international terrorism including assassinations on foreign soil. however this announcement wasn't a certainty some officials at the state department were reported to as north korea did not meet the legal definition of a state sponsor of terrorism two cases have been cited during the deliberations the killing of kim jong un's half brother at i'm a lazy an airport and the treatment of american student on a woman who died of his injuries after being released from north korean custody neither represents terrorism they argued nonetheless more sanctions will now be
10:22 am
announced by the treasury department there was unclear this will prove to be anything more than a symbolic measure given all of the sanctions that have already been levied against pyongyang something the secretary of state alluded to i don't want to suggest to you that the designation is suddenly going to put a whole new layer of sanctions all them because again i think we already have north korea so heavily sanctioned in so many ways with the u.n. resolutions that have been undertaken but this will close a few additional loopholes all analysts are attempting to discern a comprehensive strategy for north korea from the trumpet ministration i think it's disappointing trump came to washington as an outsider and i really thought that maybe there was some chance that he could have a policy towards north korea that would be different and more creative than the ones that the inside the beltway crowd have been implementing. the north koreans
10:23 am
have said they would end their nuclear tests and resume negotiations if the u.s. and its military exercises with south korea the u.s. has ruled that out so in the meantime the administration is once again relying on sanctions and harsh rhetoric she ever to washington. japan's prime minister hopes the move will help reduce the threat posed by north korea which he says is the most serious since the end of the second world war i can you. make a can you japan welcomes and supports the u.s. as read as a nation of north korea as a state sponsor of terror as a means to strengthen pressure against it now lebanon's prime minister is due in egypt to meet president of the fattah el-sisi saad hariri has been in front which is trying to mediate the political fallout from his sudden resignation in saudi arabia two weeks ago lebanese leaders say mr hariri was being held against his will he is promising to return home by when same time for independence day celebrations . the verdict of

a university degree so if faced with more fierce competition it's not much better for those wanting to start a small business about four out of five new businesses fail doctrine he says she's seen this and worse before. i hear the current situation is very bad but i believe we can get through this hard time just as we did in the past but in a recent survey of eight hundred south koreans less than thirty percent said they would donate gold today if their country faced another crisis kathy novak al jazeera. traverses take a look at the top stories here it out there a million miles treatment of its range of people has been likened to a paul fate in a new report by amnesty international the rise organizations as mammals being secor gating its range of people in an open air prison by keeping them in their villages
