9:05 pm
that or someone from the not only in the region of the market region where we are now. putting put in britain that. was actually a former or the boyfriend of i mean that which is not true has been denied by the family so it's not absolutely confirmed but there are definitely tensions in terms of racial hate. origin alone your prime minister that a few minutes ago that we want to give up to hate and that there must be no tension and that old population from every party must get together around italians to try to prevent violence and hatred to prevail there runs i let's see thank you very much they gave it giving us a further detail on this incident today well here to speak to us now about the why the implications of this is and they are now and i who is a historian of europe and is in the studio thanks very much for coming in to al

jazeera and i've just been reading about the northern league leader matches salvini who has saying and mistreating immigration is causing social strife and has vowed to expel one hundred fifty thousand immigrants here the elections coming up in march this is becoming quite an issue in the run up to this election yeah it is already an issue it is really an issue because parties like the the north the league led by matters of unity that the two just mention plus some other political forces within the center right in italy they are pushing a lot towards this and the may grounds agenda rhetoric because italy many cases is getting as we all know huge influx of immigrants refugees from from africa from libya especially and so on so this is in any case creating tension as in the rest of the western globe i mean it's not just an italian story. why there is a much wider story the point is that since the nine this some of these political
9:07 pm
forces and the immigrant forces are within the context of and these are power in the context of the moderate center right in italy and this will not disappear the rhetoric will not disappear because this case will we will make the the distension even stronger. is there a chance of the smaller far right parties could end up being part of the coalition big junior members a part of the coalition when we come to these elections that they could actually have a role in government and yes kind of rhetoric becomes part of government did that they've been in power already with silvio berlusconi since the in the ninety's. the league has been one of them one of the major coalition part and in any case they claim and some tough and team ignorance lowell's so i mean in theory yes they can they can win the election i mean if we look at sort of it's today electoral surveys the center right is leading but we don't know with the proportional
9:08 pm
electoral proportional system if they will get a majority or not so things are very unclear now and so far but these parties i've been already influencing italian politics since a very long period now the problem is that for years and probably even today a good part of the italian media as well as never consider them as far right. where's the balance coming from where's the other side that can bring in another voice bringing in a different kind of sort of rhetoric to balance this out and hopefully as the prime minister seems to be calling for not to let is escalate no no of course there are a large number of italian politician of the italian public and those of them of the media trying to push the trying to push in a way that things you know way that we don't create for there are tensions but the problem is that through social media. through the channels of this existing far
9:09 pm
right parties these rhetorical is going through it's going through and it's not just from this use as a huge example what is up an ing in the world but we need to look at europe and unfortunately these are rhetorical we need voters and probably upon them there will be. why the european a response to india gratian to refugees to war and so on this will not disappear but this was a trend that it was clear that it was going to stage very good to get your thoughts on this today thank you very much and a minute thanks for coming. syrian rebels say they shot down a russian fighter jets over the north eastern province of idlib and killed the pilots videos posted on social media here to show the plane being hit and then filmed one of the wreckage was burning on the ground reports say the pilot parachuted out of the plane down the scale and syrian government forces have been trying to take the city of sara came with cover by russian strikes when the bombing

9:14 pm
region of france corsica's a country a nation and a people and most of all they wanted corsican as a special language of the island this is one of their main demands it's a very emotional demand but it's not that easy for present machall because under the article two of the constitution it says that the republic has one language and that language is french there are other demands to which they're very keen to push through to start opening a dialogue with president michael about and that is their what they call their political prisoners the people sent to prisons across france during the forty forty years of armed struggle for independence for corsica they want them repatch rated to corsica they want them in the prisons here and they want them amnesty that again is a very difficult problem for paris and and last but not least they want to change in

9:17 pm
rosenstein who the republicans accuse of having authorized this continuation of this surveillance under a court order and the president said cryptically you figure that one out subsequently white house officials said no the president is not looking for any changes at the highest levels of the justice department but nevertheless that cloud still hangs over the justice department with the president's continuing tweets against both the f.b.i. and his own officials in the justice department the cattery defense minister says saudi arabia and the united arab emirates had intentions to invade his country last june the beginning of the gulf diplomatic crisis khalid bin mohammed to tell the washington post that councils gulf neighbors have in his words tried everything to destabilize the country saudi arabia the u.a.e. egypt and bahrain cut ties with cats are and impose

9:19 pm
government will use new powers to seize the assets of foreign criminals according to reports in the times newspaper security minister ben wallace told the paper the government will investigate foreign nationals with more than seventy thousand dollars in assets if they can't adequately explain how they got it let's get more on this joining us from brighton is robert barrington who is the executive director of the global anticorruption organization transparency international thanks very much for joining us on al-jazeera could you just give us an idea of how extensive this list of people having that much money and that much assets in this country would be. show i mean because it's secret everybody's guessing you know exactly but there is an interesting figures around the u.k.'s national crime agency says that around a hundred billion dollars perhaps more does the money that comes through london and stays in london every year so begin scale we also know that there are at least forty thousand properties in london whose owners
9:20 pm
a simply so there is certainly hundreds probably thousands of people this will apply to i was going to happen what's the order basically altering to happen what will happen is when the national crime agency or other similar rules or cities see that somebody's property whether it's physical property like a house or other types of property that seems to be in excess of what they could. legitimately a quite intense that wealth the national crime agency can ask the court to freeze the assets and then the person who owns the house will be asked to prove where they got the money from we are now wondering as you say it's secret well wondering why the big names like some of the big football club ionas who have come across from from russia maybe they might be on the list are we likely to get some names do you think we're going to find out that some very iconic figures a list on this list it's quite possible the u.s. government just last week published a list of over two hundred russian names which indeed did include is it u.k.
9:21 pm
football clubs who they felt were potential kind of sanctions in the future so this could be really shattering stuff like properly and fully in the u.k. of course there's always the danger that the old horrors he's going to sue things fully or there isn't quite enough evidence that can be gathered but this really could make quite a difference i'm wondering how this compares to the magnitsky act in the u.s. where they put a freeze on. russian government has a russian businessman been able to travel and also face on on any monies that were coming in is this kind of along the same lines. yeah it has a lot of similarities the magnitsky act in the us was named the jewels and this isn't it's much more general so on is the transparency international's compiled receipt people from libya nigeria as a by john pakistan as well as russia so it should have wider application.
9:22 pm
very interesting to see how this pans out rob a bank thanks very much for joining us. emanuel has been speaking at a conference on education and said the goal the bench president says universal education is the most important way for a country to ensure security and progress is part of the global push to have every child in school by twenty thirty but it's nicholas hack reports from dakka only half the money needed to fulfill that go has been pledged. they came to the conference of beat hoping donor countries would take the right steps and pledge more money to children's education because two hundred thirty four million children worldwide are out of school half of them are young girls. guillard is a former australian prime minister she heads the global education partnership a platform to mobilize funds to get children back to school she says funding from donor countries has stagnated in some areas of africa it's dropped here we are
9:23 pm
trying to get the world community to side let's solve the global learning process let's get the quarter of a million children to die in school into school and let's lift the quality of education for hundreds of millions more who are in schooling but i don't learn to read or write or do any math because the quality currently. world and african leaders came to the stage promising to make education a priority in the audience are children affected by the education deficit here and their advocates among them visually impaired from south africa she says these are all empty promises. well you came to that same situation where they are. very early or they are not given the opportunity to wear the same situation again which or with disability will be excluded from aid to keisha and they won't have to vote not to change enough trained teachers to fifteen the force through the road at
9:24 pm
fifty one thousand nine hundred shares. the global education partnerships goal was to raise four billion dollars for the next three years with a commitment of two point three billion dollars the pledges have increased but they're still short of the targets. big promises like these have been made before but have been left on for films now african and other developing countries are stepping in to ensure that their children can go to school. more than fifty developing countries announced they would increase their public expenditure for education to one hundred ten billion dollars. this is an unprecedented move developing countries are increasingly less dependent on western donor agencies and this for many of this conference is worth celebrating nicholas hawke al-jazeera the car. it will soon be all change for schoolchildren in kenya a new curriculum is found for the first time in thirty two years but some parents
9:25 pm
say the new teaching methods are both ambitious and expensive critics say the government also needs to build more schools buy more books on employing more teachers catherine song reports from nairobi the there is a new way of teaching in this public school classroom. class to children on the outskirts of the capital are part of a pilot program for the new curriculum to be rolled out next year. it focuses more on life skills technology natural talent and less on final exams many parents and teachers say it's a welcome change from the old one called eight for four but also ambitious and expensive for its not to feel. government do need to consult even the donuts because as you have seen. lancets and just the same without it for four started with the horrors of a good system because we had walked ships students who had to be trained on home
9:26 pm
science on things that they can do with their own hands but then a defeat of the because of lack of funds for primary and secondary education in public schools is free but they are crowded and there's not enough teachers our books so many parents who cannot find space in government schools or afford expensive private ones bring their children to even more crowded cheap community schools like this one in one of nairobi slums our salary scale or are we just we are still low because the supplementary school whatever we get to be our school fees is not enough to cut off for the teachers maybe i would say we begin by telling them that we only issue i talking here. that whole can is just about a hundred and fifty dollars a month at the highest the teachers here are more fortunate than in their the schools which pay much less for more work this is one of the moment when you need to build. more i think in the face of thanks to decide to have no
9:27 pm
fun down and out of you to do them for you cannot have you right or even so they. expand if it is expressed in these direct of a child education rights group shows us findings of research done last middle school pupils in dozens of government schools nationwide were tested on literacy and comprehension most well below average you had it in a class where you have maybe fifty children twenty of them can actually get it there are many cannot. so you keep getting the twenty every day you're moving one with a twenty and the other thirty i guess that's quoting others and then left a way behind they're not catching up and that is a problem was. it will go in your primary students prepare for their final exam at the end of this year. the teachers doubtless they're all trying their

autonomy just days before the french president is due to rival the island. and rebel fighters in syria have shot down a russian jet over the province the policy is dead russian forces have been carrying out ass strikes on rebel held areas with at least seven people killed in aleppo on friday. the u.s. secretary of state is in argentina on the second stop of his five nation tour of latin america rex tillerson is expected to meet in time counterparts on sunday he's using the tour to improve relations between the u.s. and its allies on friday he meets he met mexico's president to ease worries over donald trump's comments on immigration and trade and he's also looking to jump support for washington's tough stance on venezuela's president nicolas maduro one more on two listens to that speech to sonia shot in washington d.c. she's the director of schott international consulting and is a political analyst specializing in u.s. and latin american relations are very much for joining us on al-jazeera you
9:33 pm
couldn't exactly say that the president of the united states is ingratiated himself in this particular region how tricky is this tour for his secretary of state to go and get the balance right with these leaders. well thank you sue actually there was a we have seen sort of impasse or misconstruction or misunderstanding in his first stop at the first stop of secretary deal or something mexico when he said. that they meet that he did business well and meet that he could manage a peaceful transition of power in been a swell we know that when a swell is going to be one of the strong shoes we see that the senate that it deal or some needs to be sitting close allies like along be up it all argentina mexico ok they there have been some each has seen from power especially as you said
9:34 pm
immigration and trade both with the rest of the congress their relation has been and secondly the deal or some wants to assure these coal interests that the u.s. continues to be a close ally of course venezuela will be one of the mill your issues in the agenda and he's trying to put all that call interests in the same beach even though there are some rumors that there are more sanctions could be on the way and oil sought tool to do said this stage because there is no secret that the u.s. is seeking airport a government or and see show in minnesota the tone sounds very different rex tillerson saying i think on friday in mexico immigrants bring enormous value to the united states and it's the u.s. government's lack of good discipline in regulating who enters the u.s. that kind of tone you don't hair from president trump rex tillerson really seeming
9:35 pm
to see really quite divergent from the way that trump speaks and the way he's speaking. yeah actually it's not the first time that we have the same impression but we know that amy gratian in trade especially me gratian is a very sensitive each shoe in the way a lot that our relations between the u.s. and mexico especially right now when the art of these cues in the congress is trying to reach a deal on these dreamers the so called the dreamers those jaunts or say they have been brought by they byron's illegally but they don't know any other country than the u.s. they've been raised same grow and start the and all that in the u.s. so they are trying to find a solution in order then to find a legal way for them to stay but there is so far there is no agreement at least in congress so it's a sad really sensitive issue right now in both countries and the other agreement
9:36 pm
overseas the north american free trade agreement again i'm suspecting there are key leaders who are really looking to to listen to to make them believe to give them confidence that this is still going to be an agreement that's going to stand. but what we know from what the go over them and the press in thrums government has to say is that he favors by lateral agreements instead of more that i like riemann's so that's why we've seen the off the three for a agreement between can other mexico and the us is in peril because her breasts interim doesn't like it even though the betsy feet he seems to favor by law that aren't conversations to reach an agreement instead of by law that are on the other hand we have here it is so good at that a deal or so mentioned that he will lie to promote all day us over to china we know
9:37 pm
that china has screamed very inboard by the press and very active in terms of doing business in latin america so he probably wants to change that in stead though for him to go on being slapped in american call interest that they should keep an eye on the us very good to get your thoughts on the issues thanks very much for joining us from washington d.c. and staying in this region i want to change is once booming biofuels industry is suffering after its main markets the u.s. imposed a tariff on imports the move is parts of the trump administration's america first policy to ensure u.s. producers don't lose out to forward imports stories about reports now from. six years ago this factory was producing sixteen thousand tons of bio diesel fuel now it's down to about six thousand and. the interest rate won't grow there's no

9:39 pm
world's top soybean producers and bio diesel here is also produced with this crop it is a crucial source of income for argentina because it provides the u.s. dollars but the economy desperately needs dollars that help keep the trade balance in check since taking office president has been trying to open up argentina's economy in the not that argentina is trying to open its economy in bio diesel is one of the products that exports the most by losing its main means we will have to look elsewhere argentina cannot afford to lose markets if it wants to get its economy back on track environmentalist have long questioned the cost of a. tina's reliance on that so you have the entire areas of the country's forest have been destroyed to grow what is known here as green gold experts say biodiesel is different in. the united states and europe request
