years joined the listening post as we turn the cameras on the media. donald trump shouldn't be the one deciding who is a journalist and who isn't and focus on how they were caught on the stories that matter the most closer and closer to the. shutdown both international and domestic news coverage on al-jazeera. turkey receives its 1st shipment of the russian s 400 misawa air defense system a move that could invite u.s. sanctions.
come about i've just bought and you're watching al-jazeera live from london also coming up after 30 years of negotiations and 3 months 8 west african nations agreed to adopt a shared currency called be eco. i said you don't have to do. this is it up to donald trump labor secretary alex acosta resigns over his handling of the jeffrey epstein sex scandal. and hundreds of undocumented migrants stormed the pantheon in paris demanding the right to stay in for it's. the 1st shipment of the russian s 400 missile defense system has arrived in turkey a controversial deal but as i get the united states the 1st liberty was thrown into the mertz head base near the capital ankara with several more over the next few
days the u.s. is ready to impose sanctions it's also threatening to stop supplying turkey with its f. $35.00 fighter jets. well the s. 400 will give turkey a significant advantage over its neighbors in terms of air cover the systems missiles can simulate heinously track and destroy incoming targets up to 400 kilometers away the u.s. is concerned the turkey's s 400 purchase or compromise the security of its f. 35 jets the stealth fighter is the backbone of the u.s. and nato is future air power turkey's already bought for and wants another 116 but the u.s. believes russia may use the f. 400 system to collect sensitive data about the f. 35 said of course yahoo has the latest now from istanbul. this russian plane jailors its cargo that's got turkey's allies who worried those 400 surface a are
missile system is expected to give the turkish military a clear advantage in the region it can detect and destroy incoming missiles up to 400 kilometers away but the u.s. and nato say it is not compatible with their weapon system and insist it could pose a risk to their new stealth fighter jet the f. 35. we don't know exactly the extent. the russians would allow this means size to be used in what kind of targeting the possibilities of course the turkish sides argue that turkey would be totally free to use it but the more much depends on the called the. friend in full identifications nato says it is concerned about the potential consequences of this missile purchase while washington has vowed to impose sanctions if that $400.00 ever become operational. for turkey this is a done deal despite
a possible setback for its defense industries that's what earn up to $12000000000.00 from their $35.00 program. said to be fierce to the s 400 is a temporary solution to turkey's immediate need for air defense but we have many partnerships of the u.s. in f. 35 and other defense industries that are vital for us because the engines of the helicopters fighter jets we produce are u.s. made no one would desire any ban on these imports. the list of possible u.s. sanctions range in service and include cutting turkey off from american and international loans preventing its transactions on foreign exchanges and targeting turkish banks businesses and executives took a series of tools the russian system because that's for hundreds were more sophisticated and cheaper among other reasons the system is expected to be operational by october during last month's g 20 summit in japan u.s. present donald trump said it was the obama administration that refused to deliver
american patriot missiles to turkey and that was unfair presents our don say as strong as not promised not to impose sanctions on tricky but it is unclear whether trump will be able to persuade congress to do the same scene and go solo al-jazeera stumble for the u.s. i go on the story if we can speak alan fischer in washington d.c. and alan has there been any reaction yet from the trumpet ministration. well all we know is that marc kasper who is the acting defense secretary is planning to speak to his turkish counterpart in the next couple of hours if that hasn't actually happened already we're expecting some sort of statement from the pentagon in the next hour in fact we've been waiting for it for the last 90 minutes or so but there's still no sign of anyone appearing at the podium at the pentagon to give us a readout from the united states this breaks down essentially into 2 headings military and financial the military one a sit in laid out there are concerns that this may not be operationally compatible
with u.s. fighters that is why the u.s. has banned the sale of f. 35 stealth fighters to turkey at the moment they're worried all saw about russia getting essentially a technological grip on a need to a country when it comes to defense missile systems if we move over to the financial side turkey has been told by the united states on a number of occasions look you flip the switch and start this miss our system that is when sanctions kick in because that is what is written in american law and donald trump will have 5 of 12 options to impose sanctions on turkey congress will push for that to happen a number of congressional leaders of come out in the last few are saying look turkey can't have it both ways you're either part of the nato alliance standing up against russia or you're in russia's camp so there are congressional leaders are saying we will impose sanctions but donald trump will then have 180 days to put
them on hold and talk and certainly what he was saying at the g. 20 was present at the one has been put in a very difficult position by the obama administration they should have sold him patriot missiles and he said that he didn't think that the u.s. would impose sanctions the reality is donald trump doesn't have a choice if congress says that are going to be sanctions it can perhaps hold off in importing them for 180 days but there will still be sanctions in washington with the latest thank you. west african leaders in ivory coast have agreed to roll out a single shared currency called the echo it means 8 former french colonies will have to give up their use of a currency known as the c.f.a. franc it was created by france back in 1945 and is used by 14 african nations in 2 zones one in west africa including senegal ivory coast and the 6 others in central
africa including the ball charge well the currency is pegged to the euro and has the financial backing of the french treasury in return france holds 50 percent of the foreign exchange reserves of member countries well supporters say it provides economic stability but critics see it as a relic of french colonialism that restricts growth like majors dress has more now from abidjan ivory coast's economic capital. right now there are 15 countries or member countries of the economic community of west african states and a lot of them have not indicated whether they will join this single currency initiative however. the president of ivory coast who is the host of this summit said countries that are not ready or have not made up their mind can't join later if they want as to whether the currency will be are with existing friends the
president said but is the plan right now and they will try to keep it that way remember this year is actually granted by the french and it's been on the person for more than half a century now they are trying gradually intent towards parnay shuttle independence from the french which a lot of economies and a lot of observers in africa say is good for them but what's not clear are not the french will retaliate somehow but so far the decision is made the west african leaders have decided that they will dump the c.f.a. and of course go with it echo and hoping that regional economies like. the rest will also join the bandwagon and then they will have better integration among themselves he was president donald trump has lost another member of his cabinet labor secretary. resigning he's facing criticism i for secret he negotiated a decade ago with geoffrey epstein the billionaire.
right. this is a great. scene as. all the rest. of the right. size. are right. it would be selfish for me to say this. about the soldiers all. right. his fault trump has praised the as a great labor secretary. he made a deal that people happy with and then 12 years later they're not happy with it you'll have to figure all of that out but the fact is he is a fantastic secretary of labor and alex told me this morning and he wanted to see
me and i actually said well we have the press right out here so perhaps you just want to say it to the press but i just want to let you know this was him not me because i'm with them particle hain joins us from washington with the latest he's also not been men but now of his that ministration was the fall out likely to be. well so far this is a president who's gone through more cabinet secretaries than any other in modern american history and it is it impacting his supporters with his base somehow a little scientists believe it actually helps him with the base because it seems like he's doing what he said which is draining the swamp of washington and really not doing business as usual i think what's most notable is both of these men who are trying to downplay exactly what this scandal is saying that 12 years ago people were happy with it it was a case from 12 years ago this was not a case that people were happy with because it was a case that very few people knew about including epstein's victims they were not
told about the potential plea deal until after it was signed a federal judge has said that custom and his team the law when they did that so basically jeffrey have seen was facing numerous charges it was a huge indictment saying that he basically ran a child sex ring out of his palm beach mansion while a custom made this plea deal with them and he said plead guilty to state charges of underage prostitution soliciting underage prostitutes and you can spend 13 months in jail this was in a normal jail sentence most people sentenced to jail actually spend time in jail he spent his evenings there he was allowed to go to his office for 12 hours a day he had his own security wing in this jail so this was exposed by an investigative report since then we've seen epstein be arrested is be facing similar charges now in new york from the u.s. attorney there try to have a press conference try to say look i did my best it didn't go over well the democrats continued to call.
