indian pilot captured by pakistan during those strikes has had a medical check up after being released wing commander of the man was welcomed at the border on friday two days after his plane was shot down in pakistan administered kashmir. reports from new delhi. at the walk a border crossing in punjab wing commander. on his release from pakistani custody back to india two days after his aircraft was shot down. as. the word was. passed. that you're all going. to go over. this pick up with particularly because the officer. from an airplane bridge would have orders and died aboard. is happy to have you gotten back a former colonel in the indian army says at best the decision to hand him over so
quickly has been begrudgingly welcomed by india but that doesn't do enough to overcome this lingering mistrust years of mistrust that have been generated by this pakistan for men to terrorism and support to the insurgency in kashmir these are the real key issues kashmir terrorism. the celebrations at the border are unlikely to last long as the roots of the kashmir dispute remain deep seated as attempts are made to deescalate tensions between india and pakistan continue to complain they're the ones caught in the middle and those from india and mr mayor accuse the indian government of not doing enough for them not just now but over many years just before the pilots release there was a funeral in indian administered kashmir it was for woman killed by shelling between india and pakistan that began on wednesday across the line of control that divides mere people here complain they always suffer when pakistan and india fight
and there is renewed concerns about the indian government's policies in india administered kashmir a new crop of young educated people they have taken to. this is something which is unprecedented that this former kashmiri civil servant made news for resigning from his post to protest against the government in new delhi's policies policies he says are far more militaristic leaving no room for peaceful negotiation but we have seen the old institutions of dialogue and. those being kind of becoming eleventh and nor important and no significant political initiative from delhi has been there for last few years. the indian government has long complained that pakistan supports groups who promote violence and push mir whoever is to blame for the under arrest in the disputed region all these indians want to do for now celebrate the release of their pilot jamil al jazeera you delhi.
in the package no let up so the tensions in kashmir then so heigho. no not at all certainly not tension continues and we expect more sort of cross border skirmishes in terms of the military shelling in the coming hours i mean it hasn't really let up since wednesday when those fighter jets force a cross the region and i was as you mentioned in our faces report also told us that captured indian pilot released by the pakistanis late on friday will also on thursday we saw shelling that ended up and resulted in the death of one woman on the indian side of kashmir her funeral was on friday then later on friday we had the shelling that's just been alluded to again in june. and of course a mother and two young children were killed she was survived by her husband and
this is what he said. north are now got them first i don't know what it was around nine o'clock at night when the heavy shelling started we were sleeping inside our room my kids got scared so i picked them up and ran to the other room i opened the door and as i was about to enter the room the shell landed destroying the house and killed the girl the boy and their mother. terrible time for that father to come to terms with not only does he has two children but also his wife and yet fifty miles around about fifty kilometers north of a small village of coolie it's much closer to the line of control that separates indian administered kashmir from pakistan administered kashmir and there the shelling is so severe or was so severe on friday that you're already there had to evacuate a number of people to a safe location so certainly the tension is not eased despite the fact that the focus might have been on this military pilot captured by the pakistanis and
released back into india's care still a very tense location will be keeping an eye on it in the coming hours. all right sir raman there thanks so much for that us frozen dog trampas asked china to lift all tariffs on american agricultural products he says it's because trade talks between the world's two biggest economies are progressing the u.s. president pointed out he didn't impose twenty five percent tariffs on friday as he the originally planned china and the u.s. are trying to negotiate a way out of a trade war that seemed to catch hikes in tariffs since last year and drilling is a china affairs analyst joins us now from hong kong good to have you with us so the talk now is about how to remove tariffs is that a sign that this trade war is perhaps reaching an end. well i think that. the trade. disputes have or have already been you know sufficiently
by the united states you know these worries are shared by some of the america's western allies in the sense that china's trade model is regarded as preparatory and then some of the practices translate into perceived intellectual property theft and force intellectual probably transfer and there's perceived to be a lack of resupply city in the opening of markets so all these worries that we had and they are central to the negotiations and i think that both sides are coming closer to it to one another. that china. is seeing that these concerns will. is affecting the investment environment in china and also risk the reputation of china's economy so i think that even before the trade war you
know so china already introduced legislation protecting the lecture probably to foreign investors and opening up certain sectors and of course the recently undertaken to buy huge quantities of soybeans and other agricultural products as well as gas to balance the. kind of trade between the two sides so i think that both sides are coming together but on the other hand the trama administration i think is doubling down on foot of demand so we will see. what will happen eventually but i think that the prognosis is has been good so far. i wonder how long do you think the u.s. administration can double down use your words looking at some of the official us figures from the u.s. census bureau about the state of play with trade it does look like according to these official u.s. figures that the u.s.
trade deficit with china has increased over the last you know compared to last year not decreased surely that's going to weigh in well i think that this kind of balance is is in fact a misplaced kind of emphasis because even if there is a balance of risk being restored it doesn't mean that the kind of products china selling to the united states. would be produced by the united states themselves because they're they tend to be kind of the low end kind of products and if the united states is not buying from china for the sake of the u.s. consumers the united states have got import from other countries so it's not going to address the the crux of the problem but i think the main problems have been highlighted to be china perceived intellectual property theft the lack of resupply
the for market access for american companies as i said before even before the trade war china is already introducing areas. to try to address that the concerns good to get your thoughts on that thanks so much andrew along there well thank you very much. chief financial officer will appear in court next week after county that allowed an extradition request to proceed among one joe was arrested at vancouver airport in december the request of the u.s. government it accuses monkey and the chinese tech giant of conspiring to violate sanctions on iran the case triggered a diplomatic route between calendar and china beijing says it will be watching the case closely to the north very few justice will prevail in the end now in fact not only the chinese and canadian citizens but the whole world is extremely interested to hear how the canadian government answers this question now
kurdish forces in syria say they expect the battle to retake eyesores last held area to be over soon u.s. backed syrian democratic forces pushed the final push against i saw in the village of booze on friday the last remaining group of civilians was evacuated just hours earlier thousands of people have left in recent weeks being taken to a camp near the iraqi border or sam nader is the director of the levant institute for strategic affairs he joins us now from beirut good to have you with us do you share the optimism of kurdish forces that this will be over soon. i mean yes this is the final battle i mean this is the ground operation that will clear what is remaining from. military forces but this does not mean that the isis threat is over let's keep in mind that isis is mainly an
ideology. and the root causes of that led to the emergence of this. group are still there when it's comes to all the political settlement that still pending whether in iraq or in syria so that would courses that led to the emergence of this group remaining this is why the military operation is may be over however that is then and the chances are high that it will change the type of tactic that that he will be using and he will resort in my if you get ill type of operation instead of that classical type of food to warfare that we have been witnessing in syria lately so hang on sami basically what you're saying is that even if they
take the goods this will not be the end of lysol they will just reform themselves into a different kind of existence instead of trying to hold fixed positions. definitely yeah definitely definitely not this is not and of isis at all and we have seen how isis and this kind of similar terrorist groups are now thriving in africa and i won't be surprised if these same groups will target. will target civilian or. military meant they would have military operation inside europe or the united states of america because all the grudges and political crisis that are still open that led to the emergence of this group are
still there so definitely you cannot win the war against the system of military means only you need public diplomacy you need. restructuring it bought a restructuring of the education system and you need most of all economic development and in this area that saw the emergence of this group because what led to the emergence of this is the lack of economic development. lack of job opportunities and lack of hope when it comes to. the aspiration of large swathes of the population to a large participation in the political system and. a large swath of population wanting to be master of their own destiny
so now what's what are the chances our how the political settlement look in syria this is the. unknown. political participation or a sunni community in iraq for instance this in a crisis unless this crisis come to a sustainable sacrament i don't think that that ice is then sure will be over will be over all right thank you very much sami now that is where chlorine was used as a weapon in the syrian town of duma by the investigation into last year's attack doesn't lay any blame the organization for the prohibition of chemical weapons says it found reasonable grounds for toxic chemical was used while cannot say who was responsible duma was the final target of the syrian government's campaign to regain control of the eastern hold or suburbs of damascus from opposition fighters
that have a device all in the northern iraqi town of sin jar in two thousand and fifteen has left a power vacuum the area is rife with competing armed groups vying for control lack of agreement among them is preventing thousands of people from the minority is the the community you fled i saw from returning home charles stratford reports from more. there's a piece of fears eisel either killed his wife or like many young women sold into slavery she disappeared in two thousand and fourteen when along with tens of thousands of other families from iraq's minority easy community they tried to flee the eisel offensive on sin john i saw was defeated in sin jar in november twenty fifth dean now his children and sick father are among a few use e.d.'s who have returned. with some of their wise advice a ruled over everything they sabotaged the lads and killed our relatives and
neighbors what i saw was kicked out they left nothing behind we still don't have much left to eat or to drink. it's estimated around seventy percent of sin job was destroyed in the battle against isis but it's not just the delay in reconstruction that's preventing people from returning to their homes. there are various military forces and armed groups in the area but according to commanders little cooperation between them. what remains of the town of sin jar is in that direction behind the tile and you have a p.k. k. forces in control of that area to my left over those mountains there is the iraqi army and pro iran armed groups known as hash of a shabby i'm standing on a peshmerga position one of the main reasons why thousands of people cannot go back to singe are to try and restart their lives because of the lack of coordination between the various armed forces operating in this area. the us either you in
turkey consider the kurdish p k k to be a terrorist organization it's been fighting for an independent kurdish state for more than thirty years. and there's been tension between the iraqi federal government and the semi autonomous kurdish regional government of northern iraq over disputed territories for decades. the various forces in and outside cin jaw aren't reaching consensus to better administer the town's political and security situation people are not returning to their homes because there's no long term solution being implemented by the authorities around two hundred thousand you c.d.'s have little choice but to live in poli equipped camps in the kurdish regional iraq who obama want this issue ation is critical that the political bickering and security tension among the various forces is overshadowing on the
town's future the only solution to move forward is to pull all these forces out and let the people of the town decide their fate these edis often called iraq's forgotten people of the suffering some of the worst atrocities on the eisel political violence and distrust means they are now also struggling to rebuild their lives. more northern iraq. plenty more still ahead on the news hour including. hundreds of thousands of algerians take to the streets demanding their president should not run for a fifth term. more tell you why women in afghanistan taking advantage of peace talks to have their voices heard. in small roger federer is one win away from a historic title victory at the white championships.
