challenge since world war 2 john holl reports from london. businesses shot supply chains interrupted jobs lost the chances of britain leaving the e.u. on october the 31st without a deal to regulate trade have become all too real warnings about the potential consequences from manufacturing to medicines now joined by the food and drink federation so we know there's going to be disruption at the ports particularly across the short straight streaming and in france where a lot of our food comes from and we know that that will have knock on effects that there will be some shortages of food in the u.k. in the weeks and months after and. the food industry isn't alone and u.k. transport storage is attempted earlier this year to test the scenario of certain customs checks leading to long queues at the main u.k. e.u. ports of trade. an exercise that involved parking trucks at the disused airfield

did little to allay fears but brooks its supporters including the new foreign secretary in canada drumming up interest in a trade deal this week say the short term pain of a heart breaks it worth it for the long term gains we want to expand our horizons and raise our level of ambition in the world and as part of that we want to take our friendship with canada and the canadian people to the next level in its 1st fortnight in office the johnson government has made clear that if the e.u. won't renegotiate the existing withdrawal agreement then a no deal breaks it is inevitable and as for those die industry warnings where the government seems largely to shrug them off never mind that lorry load of fresh produce wouldn't last long sitting on a disused airstrip and retailers say even efforts at stockpiling dry goods will be complicated by the fact that warehouses are already filling up ahead of christmas most m.p.'s have vacated westminster for the summer recess but remember those late
9:18 am
night knife edge votes in the spring well never far from their minds now will be the battle to come between those who support the government's no deal threat and those who want to stop it in parliament that will be all the people are talking about and already you hear the reports about m.p.'s meeting to try and figure out ways they can stop the government taking us to their deal what we don't know because we've had so little time to watch boris johnson interact with poland we only had one day before the recess is whether sufficient numbers of conservative m.p.'s will be willing to take that ultimate step of voting the government down to try and stop no deal and a fraught autumn of politics lies ahead jonah al-jazeera london. with the headlines on al-jazeera pakistan has expelled india's ambassador and

a suicide bombing near a police building in afghanistan's capital kabul well those are the headlines on al-jazeera do stay with inside stories coming up next thank you for watching. what's at stake for the kurds in syria turkey considers a kurdish led syrian democratic forces to its security and wants to establish a border buffer zone the u.s. backed the kurdish fighters and says it wants to prevent a turkish offensive against the can the nato allies bridge their differences over the this is inside story.
9:22 am
hello welcome to the program. turkey's president has warned his lost his patience with the united states over the establishment of a safe zone in northern in northeast syria and iran says he will always out an offensive against the kurdish led syrian democratic forces the turks consider the u.s. backed s.d.f. a terrorist organization and wants to protect its border with a buffer zone but american troops are there and the pantai gold warned against and it turkish incursion targeting is kurdish in the battle i guess i still. sooty any clues indicate that about talk to the new quarterback it's our top priority to train the terrorists want in northern syria turkey cannot feel safe as long as the structure in the south which is growing like a cancer cell and is increasing with a heavy weapons of our allies is not eliminated if we don't do what's needed today
9:23 am
we would have to do it tomorrow by paying a bigger cost he said god willing we will bring our operation so different phase very soon so. we've been heavily engaged with the turks with regard to their own security interests in northern syria. clearly we believe any unilateral action by them would be unacceptable and so we're trying to do now is work out with them and arrangement to address their concerns and i'm hopeful we'll get there at the same time we're going to do is prevent unilateral incursions that would upset again these mutual interests that both the united states turkey and the s.d.f. share with the article in syria. saying the whole doha's more of the talks from ghazi on tip on the turkish syrian border. for months the united states and turkey have been engaged in discussions over what turkey calls a safe zone along syria's north eastern border those negotiations have been difficult differences it has been difficult really for the united states to try to
9:24 am
balance the interests and demands by 2 allies turkey being a nato ally the syrian armed kurdish group the y p g is an ally of the united states in its fight against eisel. the differences really have been over the length and the steps of the road as well as who will control those zones and most importantly the fate of the wife p.g. turkey considers the rice ligi a terrorist organization and its wants the group to be in its words neutralized but the united states wants to continue to cooperate with this actor in syria it's what it calls a partner in syria in the in the ongoing fight against eisel so it is not clear if the these 2 countries will be able to reach a deal it has tested their relationship a lot with the us is at stake because turkey has repeatedly warned that it will act alone it will carry out a cross border operation if there is no deal with the united states the united
9:25 am
states has warned against this of course across the border a unilateral cross border our operation would be risky there could be unintended confrontation between 2 nato allies and it's not just that the white peachy house promised to fight back for a corner of syria which is so strategic for many players many players want this corner of syria it's rich in oil and it is of course a breadbasket to syria and it gives each of these players more influence in the syrian conflict. xenophon there for inside story. if turkish army commanders get the go hand it will be the 3rd incursion into syria in the past 4 years the 1st was 3 years ago operation of freighters shilled aim took up ter the northern town of jobless which was held by ice and for 2 and a half years the turkish operation was also aimed at limiting the growing influence of the syrian kurdish led alliance and the formation of a kurdish state on turkish border turkey considers the us back soon democratic forces a terrorist organization there and
9:26 am
a 3 in offensives followed in the next 2 years turkey agreed to set up a deescalation zone as part of a deal with russia now turkey plans to target areas east of the euphrates river where hundreds of u.s. troops are stationed. let's bring in our guess here with us in doha is syria political analyst and head over policy analysis of the arab center for research in ankara but in k.l. law professor of world history of the american university of iraq so a manny and from norman oklahoma via skype just one on this director of the center for middle east studies university of oklahoma and editor of syria comment blog welcome to the program marwan this seems to be. a push to come up with an agreement between the turks and the americans about safe buffer zones but.
9:27 am
is this something they can agree on permanently or do you see the potential for confrontation between the americans and the turks while they're thickly i mean they might come up with an agreement on what i mean there are major differences on the on the buffer zone as in actually mentioned the border is the differences over the depth of the borders on the americans are willing to give the turks something like 5 kilometers inside syrian territories whereas the government is seeking actually something like between 20 and 50 miles. within inside syria it's about also where the scan actually enter could dish villages and towns on the borders on the borders between syria and turkey and also there is the question of what happens to the heavy weapons with. because the turkish government is also asking the united states to this arm the kurdish militia from the heavy weapons which had been provided.
9:28 am
while it was actually fighting fighting isis so there are major differences still between talking the 2 barty's although i mean as is said i mean there thickly they can actually agree on a compromise but i mean that is not the only issue and we must keep in mind there is another issue that is very important in my opinion because although it looks very much like a bilateral issue between the united states and turkey there are different regional . for the regional implications but the turks and the americans seem to be now narrowing differences over the issue of the safe zones but is this the focal point of the issue of the problem but is there is more to it. thank you 1st of all thanks for having me on the show that's a great question whether the issue of the buffer zone as an issue of self or part of a much broader set of problems in u.s. turkish relations the answer is both on the one hand. genuinely sees the p.y. the. the. party for. people's unity
9:29 am
party in syria as an extension of the p.k. case and in fact the p.y.t. and its and its armed wing y p g do not deny the fact that they take inspiration from of the imprisoned leader of the p.k. k. a belligerent and as we know in the west and since 2014 of the p y d as part of the syrian democratic forces as the f. have expended in the their the area under their control in the northeast and serious part of the operations as part of the operations against isis this is a genuine security threat for turkey but it also is a very important problem in u.s. turkish relations because the p y d's main sponsor main international backer is the us government since 2014 starting with 1st airstrikes and then u.s. special busy operations operatives being inserted into north east and syria the
9:30 am
united states has become. the main sponsor of the p.y.t. and the s.d.f. . it's it's basically sophie's choice you know on the one hand you have your nato ally and on the other hand you have your main and when affective local actor against isis since you mentioned the u.s. influence and links to the y.p. dnd why p.g. just is a whole debate just about the buffer zone of the details about buffer zones how deep should be who should be in control who should monitor the area all. why is it from an american perspective because the moment they said that they would like to go east of the a for vegas that was a red flag from and from that for them for the fall for the trump administration yes you know i think to understand the turkish point of view you have to look at the 2 major shifts in american policy we have to remember that that obama and courage the turks to get involved in syria and that america would fall behind they
9:31 am
were going to put the sunni arabs in power then america got spooked by the sunni arabs it's switched from the sunni arabs to the kurds in order to destroy isis it promised the turks that once it had destroyed isis it would get rid of the it would take back the heavy weapons and it would leave the region now that has infuriated the turks because both of these promises to help the sunni arabs come to power and then to leave syria after isis with the story have not been fulfilled and the united states has switched its policy to an anti iran policy and staying in syria for the long duration now from an american point of view. they want to stay in syria because they believe that roll back iran there to continue fighting isis is the war on terror and that turkey is upsetting the apple cart america is convinced that they can have it both ways they can have
9:32 am
a turkish ally and they continue to support the white b.g. because they believe the white b.g. is not a terrorist organization they can successfully build a firewall between the white and the pe k k ok sharks aren't by nest and we're at loggerheads. just was basically saying that it is specter or there's a deal or not about the buffer zone we're talking about now and never going to political landscape in syria itself where the americans are looking into different potential challenges particular when it comes to iran isn't this something which could further complicate the task for the turkish government which says that he's determined if there's no agreement to move forward with its minister campaign well i think i mean well i add this is something in my opinion it's going to be very difficult for actually to move in without the consent of the united states specially now after the u.s. secretary of defense has warned against against that and in my opinion turkey has been actually threatening to invade to go and side syria for the past few months at
9:33 am
least since a president actually said that he would like to withdraw from eastern syria. but of course i mean they knew what their u.s. administration the strategy of the u.s. administration because it is very much complicating the situation for turkey not only for took it it's also for russia because turkey and the shop was was actually we're expecting the united states to leave the eastern part of syria instead of the fifty's the moment they defeat i said but that actually is not is not the case right now we all know that president is very willing to leave actually but it's been tagged on which wants to stay very much because you know i mean president from the twice actually he quit for the withdrawal of u.s. of u.s. troops from the country but i think now they convinced him that it's more useful to have for the united states to stay. because they can actually prevent iran from having the if this land got a door between iraq syria and lebanon and they will actually prevent that evolving of ice and they will use actually the presence military presence of the if it is in
9:34 am
order to put pressure on the syrian regime to accept a political solution to this conflict because we all know that there is somebody of syria is useful to syria in fact it includes oil as water and almost everything that syria needs in and no regime in damascus can sort of arrive actually without having back without any covering that is symbolic of the fifty's so they are this is actually feel now that this could be used as a card in order to put the pressure on the regime to accept a political solution that asia and its allies but as you said it's much more complicated than that there are other actors and they are not actually have as much say in this in this conflict as the united states and to bahrain when when when when let's set aside the differences between the americans of the turks what went on and says that he's determined that sets are moving forward to east of youth euphrates should we really take him seriously on this given the fact that the
9:35 am
military establishment seems to be really really really skeptical about a deeper involvement in the conflict in syria. yes and no that's also a great question yes and no i would say because on the one hand since turkey conducted its 1st major military incursion into syria in 2016 against 1st isis in august 26th the. operation euphrates shield and then last year early last year against the p y d in the region operation olive branch there has been talk of staging an operation they even have the code name out operation euphrates sort of very clearly geared aimed at the eastern part of the eastern part of the euphrates river and so he exists on the one hand yes we have heard this before on the other hand. president adlon may either deliberately or
9:36 am
unintentionally paint himself into a corner and and that end up delivering if you will. basically forcing his own hand to conduct some sort of operation into eastern syria as for the turkish commands the turkish military brass is a position on this they really are not in a position at the moment to completely resist president add on's desires we had seen this in 201-320-1420 extension 15 when president add on wanted some sort of intervention by the turkish military in northern syria and the high command was a post of his but after the failed coup attempt of july 26th president i do i still holds the reins over the military and a former chief of general staff would use yucca is still the defense minister so busy we see a very serious control on the part of president out on the military and i don't think the turkish military irrespective of its position is in
9:37 am
a position to resist. its commander in chief's orders if they're ordered to go in syria just when defense across the mark has been spoke about the u.s. taken action without specifying what kind of action if them if the turks decide to the most the ministry offensive east of the euphrates was he talking about sanctions or. a potential for an aggressive response from them against well that's a that's an excellent question and he didn't specify and there's there's a comfort confusion about what america can do and what it should do because america does not want to get in a shooting war with turkey we have to remember that the reason that america is in northern syria is based on a resolution about provided by congress about fighting the war on terror that means isis so if this spins into a warrant turkey the congress is going to be furious and americans will be furious and even president trump has been painting himself in the present president shall
9:38 am
campaign as somebody who wants to get out of middle east look what he's doing in afghanistan he says withdrawing american troops he says at every occasion just a month ago he said we're going to leave syria and we can they can take care of themselves so president trump does not want to shooting war with turkey if and anyone knows that and he is playing on that and every time he escalates he gets and can get trump on the phone trump says we're leaving and then the men around him roll that back so he is trying to split trump from the pentagon and the state department and so forth and and that's his strategy right now is to escalate get trump on the phone he needs the americans to get out of there and fulfill their promise that he's going to be beating this drum until the americans leave ok and we have to remember this is an inhospitable environment for the americans the syrians don't want the iraqis don't want the russians don't want the iranians don't want to
9:39 am
and the turks don't want to so he's going to raise the price and they're all going to raise the price on america until america leaves that's the stretch when we turn sometimes to talk about the big players that but we were not talking here about the syrians what does it leave syria when actually what the king had a crush on in fact mainly because it is what simplicity. that talks between the americans and the turks and we have not this over the past few months that when the russians feel that the americans and the turks are close to having an agreement on that it's in your feet there's the other skating on the west and it lead mainly and i think the russians that he has always from the very beginning there's a bit between turkey and the united says it's a clear that the russians they want the americans are but they don't want to key and they want actually the regime to recover the eastern if we tease. region because i said before it's very rich in oil and gas in water and the regime in damascus will be dependent on the russia hand out if if if it doesn't get already
9:40 am
covered that is to defeat these and egypt for the russians that they're one that isn't very much and how does the syrian government see this well of course i mean this is a basic interest for the syrian government as well actually is he covered the region of east of the of with these and. once or once again so that they're actually important in my position in my opinion is very important here as i said they are watching closely what's happening between the russians between the americans and and the turks bahrain we have here the regional players vying for the biggest say in the aftermath of what happens in syria so you have the iranians you have the russians you have the americans and you have the turks i mean from a turkish perspective can we see this a pretty good to turkey trying to rethink its presence militarily politically once syria splinters or is divided. turkey's interest
9:41 am
i would say is to keep syria as much of a unitary state as possible several times turkish president himself has said that turkey does not wish to see an autonomous kurdish region in northeastern syria in northern syria the way there is now a kurdistan regional government in the north of iraq even though turkey still enjoys fairly good relations with the k r g with the iraqi kurdistan regional government. it policy makers are not character early do not cannot foresee a scenario where they could enjoy similarly good relations with an autonomous kurdish administrative and in northern syria that has of course much to do with the fact that ideologically whatever syrian kurdish autonomous administration has

established in order to syria it would have ideologically a very different outlook on turkey's kurdish question than that of iraq's k r g just so i see a party's 1st issue is to maintain syria as a unitary state and to find a space in northern syria to repopulate some of the syrian refugees in turkey this is becoming at an increasingly bigger hot potato in domestic turkish politics just say those 2 thank you just when you spoke earlier about the. political considerations taken by the american a recession but by maintaining a presence there in a very complex political landscape and too concerned that this could backfire in the future knowing that you have the same time the buses were pretty much concerned about the americans trying to expend that influence in syria. yes
9:43 am
you know there's 2 considerations united states one is their plan it is to make autonomy zone in the north of syria even if they succeed in using the leverage of of northern syria in order to change the government damascus which is their plan is to weaken damascus to such a point that assad and the russians have to agree to you any ill over sponsored elections democratic elections that assad leaving some other regime that would allow for autonomy that's the american wish in all these regions and in lebanon northern aleppo and so that each area would have their own set up that means the kurds get relative independence turkey isn't going to put up with that america is going to have find it extremely difficult to remain in this area as we've seen already arabs and kurds are coming to have deep differences in the region and all the regional players want to merica out it's going to be a difficult ok heavy push united states model one of the syrians talking about
9:44 am
what's next. they went into a debate. a divided syria north damascus of the north east bit perhaps if there is something that that he and the opposition would agree on is that to keep one united country they might be actually fighting over every other think but but the course i mean not this one so this is why i mean the russians they are hoping actually that they can bring in the opposition. in order to agree on a political solution that is tailored by the russians and that would actually maintain the unity of syria and that might also be the interest of turkey and and iran because we are seeing those on the bottoms of the asset than a process trying to do something and they are very suspicious of the intentions of the united states in the east in your fifty's and this is going to have some people think that it is american troops and as just one has as mentioned actually to have an antonym a scottish region in the northeast of syria but any less than 30 seconds please is
9:45 am
there a general sentiment in turkey in favor of the military offensive or do you think there are enough of economic and political problems we do want to stay away from to from from syria. turkish people from what i can see been here for my summer break for about almost 3 months now and my sense is that most of my compatriots are more interested in seeing that the country's economic problems are resolved however given that as i mentioned earlier the there is a groundswell against syrian refugees if out of the one president there could also package any impending military operation as a way of increasing turkey's our bargaining power in syria that could be sold to turkish domestic to the turkish thank you to public opinion thanks ali gas manuel couple unbutton cola and just learned this. and thank you too for watching you
