from the sound first with the two leaders were speaking joel i guess a lot of the things that they announced would sort of heard about before they'd they'd been hinted at what did you make of the press conference in general the tone of the two leaders looking forward to their new relationship post breck's it. what it was an extraordinary sort of expression wasn't it of of deep friendship not just historical friendship but future friendship as well and an expression of those values and ties between two pretty crucial countries in terms of what is going on at the moment in the european union and with breaks it britain of course in negotiations pretty tense negotiations entering now there tensest phase yet to leave the european union france fausta sending with emmanuel mccrone at the helm to being the most important political country alongside germany of course but as i'm
10:04 pm
going to merkel's flame wanes a bit the most important political country in the e.u. and therefore an invaluable ally for britain to hold on to and do what it can to maintain ties with as things move forward now this was a summit ostensibly about defense and security ties as you say a lot of the things we thought would happen did happen border security kalai defense cooperation in north africa and eastern europe and so on but a lot of people said that behind the scenes this was really a diplomatic initiative by britain in this time of difficulty with president and looking forward to what happens after breaks it to try and shore up bilateral ties with an important european country and if this is seen as a success and certainly judging by the tone of that press conference i think it will be it is the sort of diplomatic initiative britain may now repeat with other e.u. leaders as well. it's quite interesting looking at the differences between the two
10:05 pm
leaders on the one hand we have a man who has recently won an election very comfortably seen by many as you know the new real power of the european union on the other hand we have to reason may well has to go through the headache of the brakes and they go see asians as lost in the last election but they do as well in the in the recent election as she would have liked i mean ultimately does the u.k. need france more than the france than france needs the u k. well it was interesting that i mean it was certainly wasn't a meeting of equals was it in a way the summits of this sort under previous administrations back in time might have been seen to have been as you say micron this rising not just to you but world leaders to resume a barely politically stable at home and to the extent that this was a diplomatic foray it was one that britain pretty much undertakes on the back foot the question of who needs whom more i think is an open one is to resume a pointed out upwards of
10:06 pm
a hundred billion dollars worth of trade that these two countries particularly between themselves enjoy not just within not just as the e.u. as a whole but they are neighbors they do share a border they are similar sized countries similar sized economies a lot of what they produce goes to each other so i think they probably need each other an awful lot and to say nothing of intelligence sharing at a time of crisis both countries the subject the target of violent attacks at home with the huge loss of civilian life i would say that this is an enduring relationship this press conference of this meeting this evening certainly laid out if in if you see of detail by both leaders all of the elements of that relationship that they value and want to continue and i think it is fairly self-evident not least because of the geography of the situation as mr pointed out that this is a relationship they both want to endure.
10:07 pm
syria's foreign ministry has told the rest of its affairs this after secretary of state rex tillerson unveiled the trumpet ministrations goals for syria which include keeping u.s. troops in the country for the foreseeable future but let's be clear. the united states will maintain a military presence in syria focused on ensuring isis cannot reemerge our military mission in syria will remain conditions based we cannot make the same mistakes that were made in two thousand and eleven when a premature departure from iraq allowed al qaeda in iraq to survive and eventually morph into isis it was that vacuum that allowed isis and other terrorist organizations to wreak havoc on the country the u.s. secretary of state they will al-jazeera as a senior political analyst marwan bashara says this marks
10:08 pm
a turning point in terms of u.s. strategy. this is a major departure from both the trump administration strategy or speaking of strategic the last year and it's certainly a measure departure from the obama administration's assertive in syria and in the greater middle east. in fact you know one who of course would say that this is well thought through stretches the probably took weeks if not months just like what we've seen the kind of a departure of a new strategy in afghanistan i think now we're seeing a change of policy towards syria so this is not a trump midnite tweet this is the strategy of the united states in syria and it really marks a major departure whereby as we've heard there's going to be an indefinite deployment of u.s. military presence in syria it's going to be a military presence that will push towards the removal of the assad regime in syria

the turkish side of the border with turkish tanks have been massing this week. the turkish army is steadily increasing its presence along this stretch of the syrian border present wretched tired aired one has been threatening to attack the kurdish run area baffling for almost a week now there has been sporadic shelling. inside after the thousands marched on thursday in protest to turkey's aggression how the guardian i see that the goal of this large demonstration is to send a message to the world and especially to turkey concerning the turkish threats we will not be a fright. in the oval office we came here to protest the attacks on offering we will stand by a free and. a free and as one of three autonomy as kurdish enclaves controlled by the syrian kurdish people why do party and its armed when the why p.g. turkey sees the why p.g. is an offshoot of the kurdistan workers' party or p k k which it together with the
10:11 pm
us in europe consider a terrorist organization but the white b.g. has been working with the us to push ice a lot of syria not enough rain but further east of the euphrates river the americans have never had a presence in africa but the russians do and after he has been relatively peaceful throughout this war and it hosts tens of thousands of internally displaced syrians it will like you know africa has been there for quite a long time has never thrown like you know. a serious shortage threats or turkey but they are going to. probably need it this kind of nationalistic. you know and potentially use its military in order to be able to gain more. with the upcoming elections in turkey so i think that the mystic. you know set aside when it comes to actual interaction and into extreme tensions have been stoked further in recent days by the u.s. announcement of a so-called border force which will be based east of the euphrates along the border
10:12 pm
with turkey and iraq and the wifey. will form its back not. a terrorist organization but. it is unacceptable and inexplicably the us secretary of state rex tillerson says it's not a border force the us role has been misplaced trade in turkey is an explanation he says the build up is aimed at countering the resurgence of eisel will be internally focused and is important for the stability of syria however that's not what others involved in syria's war think ankara moscow and damascus have all boys through opposition to the force once again it highlights the complicated nature of syria's war isis been pushed out of most of the territory that it once held and so the battlefield is becoming perhaps even more complicated with each side trying to carve out its fear of influence and it seems the syrians are the ones that hold the

flow of commercial goods and humanitarian aid from reaching the yemeni population so that is where things should be moving on lessening those resources we need more we need less restrictions on imports fuel is key and central for the survival of the population in yemen fuel is essential for the running most hospitals in a system that is faltering only forty five percent of house facilities are functioning today in yemen but fuel is also important for water water pumping stations depend on fuel. sewage treatment plants depend on fuel vehicles that collect the garbage depend on fuel and all of this creates a vicious circle were the population being weakened after years of exhausting their resources and not having any more the capacity of staying will only have more epidemic's like diphtheria coming back to them if these conditions are not treated immediately israeli forces have killed the palestinian man and injured others

opportunity to go for the ultimate kite surfing experience the storm is causing travel chaos hundreds of flights were grounded and in germany all long distance rail services were suspended due to the danger that trees will fall onto the overhead wires and there's a danger that trees will block routes we know from past experience with extreme with the conditions that it's better to keep the trains in so many stations where we can but to take care of passengers in between stations power outages hit tens of thousands of people in germany belgium and another lands and roads were blocked by fallen trees and debris high wind and heavy snow also hit parts of the u.k. scotland is dealing with power outages and dangerously icy roads but the storm isn't losing strength it's moving across the continent with eastern europe in its sights cap and stance on al-jazeera. a new air bus order from emirates has come to
10:22 pm
the rescue of the world's largest passenger aircraft whose future was hanging in the balance the dubai based airline has ordered twenty airbus a three eighty s. with the option to buy sixty more the emirates is the biggest customer for the super jumbo with a hundred and one in service already and forty one more on the order of the double decker plane has been in service since two thousand and seven but this is its first new order in more than three years the deal worth up to sixteen billion dollars provides. lifeline for the european aircraft maker which had warned they would have to stop production of the a three eighty if the sale fell through well joining us now in the studio is the head of aviation at the university of west london i thank you so much for being with us here on al-jazeera so the first order in three two years i mean and how much trouble was a about speed before this water came in i mean the the airbus a three eighty project itself has been relatively successful it's had about three hundred orders
10:23 pm
from various airlines around around the world over the last ten years and it's a relatively good aircraft you know it's fairly technologically advanced it's coffee the high capacity which works well for congested airports but it is quite an expensive project and it's estimated to cost of us about twenty five billion us dollars and that's you know research development cost production costs etc and to make that money back requires a fairly large and substantial number of orders and that's that's not what it's received we hasn't received as many orders does it so why is it why is the a three eighty basically not being as popular as useful as the company was hoping is a couple reasons for the airlines it's fairly difficult to fill an aircraft the five hundred to six hundred capacity is also a fairly large aircraft and so many airports around the world simply don't have the infrastructure with the ability to handle such a large aircraft i mean even heathrow airport for example has special restrictions
10:24 pm
about which taxi ways it can the operator i suppose airbus obviously must have known which airports would have been able to handle the a three eighty before it started production so if there being any changes perhaps in the way we fly in the options that airlines offer that have also sort of sparrow you know this is all times for the a three eighty year if you look at his biggest competitor it's boeing in the us and boeing seven eight seven dreamliner is and it's triple seven aircraft have been a fantastic success for boeing a lot of airlines like the. type of aircraft because it's fairly flexible in which airports you can use it and the numbers speak for themselves we're looking at about three hundred also what is for the airbus a three eighty and the smaller seven eight seven dreamliner as the orders are nearly twelve hundred i mean you mention the difference between these two planes and their flexibility in being able to to access various airports to those who would have us who are in very kind of the differences between these planes what are the main differences for the passenger
10:25 pm
experience for for example because obviously the double decker it's very visible it and it's huge yes right there is a certain level of prestige in flying in the us a straight i think many passengers have commented that they quite like the cabin space and the the lighting within the aircraft but the other competitors such as the seven eight sevens and the triple seven have also improved that have been the of the is fairly new variants of made i just thought i mean i've never heard anyone say that they decided to fly a certain airline because of the lighting i mean what do you think the priorities are for fourth travelers now that perhaps you know the a three eighty doesn't doesn't accommodate well there was a three eighty it's generally because it's fairly difficult to fill the aircrafts many airlines will operate on a one service per day and what many passengers want is high frequency so multiple flights per day and that enables them to get to their destination particularly business travelers time when they want to and so it's trying to get to a regional airport in
10:26 pm
a part of the world with the airbus a three cannot go other aircraft such as a seventy seven a much better equipped very brief last question do you think it will survive i think is the order announced today will mean that it will survive at least for another eight to ten years but beyond us really need more orders. head of aviation new versity of west london thank you. time is running out for the u.s. congress to pass a spending bill to avoid a government shutdown on friday president donald trump backs a short term bill which the house of representatives will vote on later on thursday and president trump says his plan to build a wall along the u.s. border with mexico has a quote never changed or evolved and now that contradicts comments made by his chief of staff on wednesday john kelly told his phonic lawmakers that some of from cindy gratian views during the campaign were quote uninformed but in an apparent rebuke of kelly trump tweeted that the wall is the wall and it will be paid for by
10:27 pm
make soko john hall holeman is on the mexico u.s. border and sent us this update. this thursday saw another tussle between donald trump and the mexican government the u.s. president claimed via twitter that this country is the most dangerous in the world that such of the not true and that only his proposed will could stop the flow of drugs across the border between the two countries that claims actually very interesting particularly since that the a published report in two thousand and fifteen saying that the cartels move most of their drugs through ports of entry like the one that you can see behind us between on this side and sun diego in the united states the mexican government along with rebutting president trump's claims also said that this was a shared problem that it's not just about mexican supply it's also about overwhelming u.s. demand when it comes to drugs they said as well that they're not going to negotiate
10:28 pm
over social media this of course is part of a wider picture of negotiations between president trump republicans and democrats over government funding and also about migration issues particularly about the dreamers young people that were brought to the united states as children illegally but have been allowed to stay and allowed to work their future at the moment very much hangs in the balance but mexico at this moment is really the unwitting food guy in those negotiations and it doesn't like it pope francis has urged the people of the chilean coastal city to continue to be welcoming towards migrants he made the comments during a homily in which has seen a spike in my going to rivals increase has been so fast there are nearly two dozen slums on the outskirts of the city. pope francis ended his most problematic tour of a catholic country in chile's northern desert city of where the theme was immigration he chose it because it is home to
10:29 pm
a huge number of immigrants especially for me and the libya d.-day he said there he said the. there is no christian joy if the doors are closed to migrants if they are made to feel unwelcome a message directed far beyond chile's borders especially this week when the issue of building walls keep migrants out is again making headlines in the united states . this has been a difficult to put the pope over shadowed by displays of anger over clerical sex abuse at almost every public appearance even after the pope had asked for forgiveness for the damage done to children by members of the catholic church after days of protests even by priests a clearly angry pope finally explained his controversial support for a bishop accused of covering up sex abuses if you are thinking of. proof against bishop by ross then i will speak there is not one bit of proof against him all of it is slander it's not clear. to reshoot but it was also clear is that that is

not church controversy in strife torn to move goal he called on to lead to end centuries of injustices against the indigenous people while warning radical my pussy groups to abandon violence or risk destroying their just cause. shortly before leaving chile of course through a police officer almost and top of his popemobile the pope got off and rushed to see if the officer was hurt how much the pope's four day trip will really contribute to restoring lost faith in the catholic church here in chile is very hard to measure so soon from here the pope goes to neighboring peru for the second and last leg of his south american journey. before we go let's take another look at the main stories making the news on al-jazeera u.k. prime minister terrorism and french president of a new and have pledged to maintain their nation's close relationship and cooperate
