a us foreign policy expert he says members of congress know the stakes are high when it comes to security. this letter was a strike across the bow really sending a message that congress in both a bipartisan in by cameral fashion was just about united in stating that there needs to be a clear well defined policy as it pertains to syria there's tremendous concern across the house and senate and probably 4 within some elements of the administration is well that you have open spaces within syria that can be taken over by the likes of isis hezbollah or factions groups loyal to our iran or russia and so what leaders in the house and senate again both republican and democrat are saying is that we have to know exactly what the policy in posture of united states is going to be in the coming days and months as it
pertains to syria the stakes are just too high when you look at the security issues on the ground when you look at u.s. national security interests that have to be protected as well as president nicolas maduro has proposed holding early elections for the opposition controlled national assembly and made the announcement as he marked one year since his controversial reelection next kegel vote isn't due until 2020 at least a dozen assembly members have been stripped of their legislative immunity in recent weeks and face charges of treason and subversion of the. proposal coincides with talks held in the us between pentagon officials and representatives of opposition leader. or latin america has more from caracas. president hugo last mughal had said many many times over the last few months that he is willing one fact that he wants to bring forward elections for the national assembly the only institution
that he does not control so that in and of itself is not new what's new is the context there have been exploratory talks between the government and the opposition of. the opposition in norway nothing supposedly had come of this but now president says that he is willing to quote speak to the devil if that will bring peace now the devil of course that he's referring to is why though the opposition leader but it's not clear that why though it wants to talk to him at least about that because he has put 3 or maybe 3 demands which he says are not negotiable and that is for you to resign for there to be a transition government and for elections to be held but not just for the national assembly but for all of the institutions in the country starting with the presidency so it's not clear at all whether this latest suggestion is really going to fly or the wood and whether it will work at all to try to unlock this deadlock ford is cutting thousands of jobs worldwide and the u.s.
vehicle maker will lay off $7000.00 workers that's about 10 percent of its salaried staff a company is looking to save $600000000.00 a year as it carries up to build more electric and drive vehicles in the future john hendren has more from chicago. ford motor company is laying off 7 founders in white collar workers worldwide that's about 10 percent of its salaried work force deep cuts at ford and those might just be the beginning that's part of an 11000000000 dollar restructuring from the company why their sales actually went up in the united states in the past year but they've gone down. in europe asia and latin america and as they are competing in the standard car market they are also competing with technology companies like tesla and leymah which are making self driving electric cars and this follows on the heels of cuts by general motors even deeper cuts of $8000.00 workers or about 15 percent of its salaried workforce
they're facing similar industry pressures and those companies are hearing for an era in which perhaps people aren't buying so many cars perhaps hiring self driving cars to take them where they want to go on a regular basis and all of this happens is those companies have been hit by tariffs the trump administration has said on steel and other metals that has cost ford alone about a $1000000000.00 over the past year and to put that in perspective the company is saving about $600000000.00 with the cuts that it is announced on monday that doesn't get you quite to the $1000000000.00 the company has paid in terrorist for importing the metals it needs to make those cars so the tariffs have been bad news on top of a rough year for the automakers so add on al-jazeera argentina's former president goes on trial for corruption and what impact that could have on her future political ambitions. warm welcome for

a minority or a majority government without the support of independent m.p.'s and what we now know is that he has done enough to govern in his own right the scale of the victory is even greater than it's appeared to be today what that means in practice is that scott morrison and his party have a free reign to do what they like when it comes to for example policy on tax they want lower taxes we were richer australians less action on climate change than the would have been had the labor party won the election because action on climate change is seen by his policies morrisons as economically damaging and the be no change either to australia's tough border protection policies refugees trying to come to australia. boat will still be sent to remote islands on a proper new guinea's mount a saw and all on the route but it also means that the hundreds of men still languishing on the particular will probably have to stay there long the said to be despair. among them scott morrison would have a completely free rein when it comes to legislation he still needs to get new laws through the senate the upper house of parliament where he doesn't have
a majority nevertheless his party is in a stronger position now than it was even a week ago when they were in government but with the support of independent m.p.'s and that is against all expectations and against the opinion polls. and the nation's presidential candidate. who is refusing to accept defeat in last month's election and will challenge the result in court election commission declare a presidential veto the winner with 55 percent of the vote that opposition party say there was systematic cheating something the election board has ruled out citing lack of evidence. a corruption trial of argentina's former president cristina kirchner is set to become an apprentice artist on tuesday but as traceable reports her trial will take place this year self is running for vice president in the upcoming election the latino vote and is here now. she was argentina's president for 18 years from 2007 to 2015. 4 years later cristina
fernandez that continues to be one of the most important politicians in the country . right now she's on trial for her alleged role in a corruption probe worth millions of dollars during her administration. lawyers like leak out of them one at a san say the links between kirshner and the businessman are a crucial part of the investigation. of the the nobody has been able to prove that you had corruption money but what has been demonstrated is how the former president used their hotels and other places to launder illicit money. money that i legibly came ask it back. from public works contracts from last advice a family friend who was a bank clerk turned tycoon when he 1st met the kershner family cristina kirchner will be appearing in this courthouse regularly from now on even though she's been implicated in more than 10 corruption investigations this is the 1st case that makes a full court cristina kirchner is now
a senate or still sees protected with parliamentary immunity which prevents her imprisonment but not her prosecution. since leaving office cristina kirchner and members of her government have been indicted and accused of corruption one of them was even caught trying to hide around $9000000.00 in a ministry. but the former president says she's seen a cent and a victim of political persecution from her rival precedent. an early say the judiciary in argentina tends to lean towards those in power. there is political persecution there is animosity and judges pushing cases improperly against certain political figures but i believe it has to do with the justice system as a source of power and not because they are responding to those who are in government . kirshner was expected to run in the october presidential election against modi.
