12:01 am
thousands from their homes. and i'm only a harding and doha with all of your sports world number one and defending champion naomi osaka is through to this year's u.s. open 2nd round we'll have that for you and more coming up this news hour. brazil's president. says his government will find its own solution to the crisis of the amazon foz without international help he spoke a day off to a g 7 nations pledged $20000000.00 to help fight the flames and protect the rain forests of sonora has accused rich countries of treating brazil like a colony he says brazil is rejecting the g. 7 unless the french president. apologizes for recent comments. we will find a solution and we will give the world such as function even people like the french
12:02 am
president. emmanuel must think twice he wants to get out of a complicated situation like this huge rejection he's facing his own country before starting with us nobody here is against dialogue with france not at all and we thank the work of the g 7. the french president criticized his brazilian counterpart for refusing to accept aid from the g 7 to fight the amazon because as the world cannot allow the amazon to be destroyed by the actions of brazil's government. country and when we have major events we accept international solidarity because it's a sign of friendship but above all there are 9 countries in the amazon and many other countries ask for help it's important to mobilize it quickly so that colombia bolivia and brazil in regions that are would like to have access to this international help can have it and can reforest quickly daniel sharma has more now from northwest brazil. it's more than just political this is got very personal
12:03 am
if you remember it that she started with also now role posting a facebook page with photographs of him and his wife mccrone and his wife bridgette saying that his wife was pretty and so that was how the insults started and obviously there's a much bigger issue at les here the future of the amazon rain forest so this will get wrapped up in these very personal insults flying between one and the other in this very difficult situation when the fires are pretty much brought under control the army has been brought in but they've been dealing with the fires the rainy season has begun here present job also now has just had a meeting with the governors from the amazonian states anything he was being defiant in the face of the criticism from the international community specifically the g 7 saying some of the governors was saying they simply don't have the resources to protect the vast areas of rain forest all those was saying they need to develop the more they need to they have in some of the states 80 percent 85
12:04 am
percent of the land is protected either as a nature reserve or as a indigenous land and if missouri is going to escape poverty it needs to go into these places and develop more that implies developers coming in chopping down trees setting fire to the land and if anything when the dry season comes around next year if that is the case they would likely to be even more fires and we've seen this year. in brazil is mixed reaction to news that the government is engaged in a back and forth on international offers of aid to help combat the fires in. any hope is always welcome as long as it's well intended i think we're in a moment where there's a lack of hope and a lack of credibility perhaps both in our statement wasn't thought through and was off the cuff that's probably not what he wanted to say but that's the message that was given and it will a very negative repercussions. what. cannot be linked to any kind of submission to foreign countries brazil must have autonomy over the years on we
12:05 am
cannot accept this globalization of the amazon or. more we can speak now to mikhail advices she is the manager of global forest watch and she joins us live via skype from baltimore thanks so much for being with us i understand you examine the data of forest fires quite carefully what's the effect been so far of these ones. yeah so we're looking at the fire situation looking at satellite imagery and what from what we can see this year is on track to have the most fire forest fires in brazil since any year since 2010 and which i mean the 1st quarter competing evidence about whether they're actually under control would you say they are from what you've seen well we've definitely seen you know a continuation of the number of fire points that we're picking up it doesn't look like it slowed down at all since you know the military has been sent in over the weekend so what kind of information do you gather could do you can you tell us so far what the damage or the damage has been to the atmosphere and so right so what
12:06 am
we can see is basically just whether or not there's been a fire within a certain pixel of the satellite image so what that doesn't tell us is how much these fires are actually spreading into for us and as you're saying you know what kind of impact they might have on the climate what we do know from previous years is that in some cases the emissions from forest fires can even be as great as the emissions from the for station so that's something that will want to keep an eye on in the future another worse in brazil than in all the countries that are part of amazon well personal has you know around 60 percent of the amazon basin so i think that's why you know the focus has been there we are also seeing fires in the south of bolivia and in southern peru as well what about the if offer of help promote the g 7 brazil's president now saying that he doesn't it won't accept it how much difference would it make if he did. yeah i mean i think it's great that the international community is interested in talking about this topic for me what i would really like to see is not just a focus you know about this one crisis in brazil but
12:07 am
a recognition that forests are important for the climate we know that tropical deforestation accounts for around 8 percent of human caused carbon emissions and can be a big part of the solution as well but they only get around or even less than 3 percent of climate change financing so i'd really like to see a bigger discussion about this and i understand that in the past you worked on know looking into the effectiveness of conservation initiatives in the peruvian amazon and what were the most successful ways of protecting force yeah so definitely you know looking at protected areas and you know setting aside lands indigenous lands as well have been very effective. and how difficult is it to do that. serving if certainly a long process can take many years to get through all the administrative hurdles to do that and in terms of kind of studying the the information do you think there's anything you can tell from your information gathering at the moment that would that you know that makes a difference until in terms of how this is analyzed how it's treated right i think
12:08 am
one thing that hasn't been covered a lot in the media still far is that august is really only the beginning of the fire season typically brazils these even more fires happening in september than in august so i think this is a story that's going to continue to evolve and something it will need to keep an eye on over the next couple of months michaela i said thank you very much indeed thank you patty more still ahead on news hour including. on britain or 160 m. . voted against. the u.k. opposition leader launches a bid to prevent his country leaving the european union without a deal. the report reveals the trauma suffered by nigerian women trafficked into sexual slavery and forced labor. and tiger woods is said to be out of action until october leo will tell you why in sport.
12:09 am
the president of turkey and russia have discussed joint steps to ease tensions in the province the last remaining rebel stronghold in syria but to me putin and russia. back opposing sides in the war steadfast and has more from zukowski on the outskirts of moscow where the talks were held. we. know it was an unusual venue for the hastily organized high level meeting before the situation in syria it liberal than could be discussed turkish president wretched add a one was treated to a show russia's latest up abilities. but an it had russian ice cream then they discussed the issue of the turkish president really travel to moscow for the escalating violence in italy calling it a humanitarian tragedy one came to ask let me put in to rein in syrian forces but put in that not made any promises to raise the closure it up to let
12:10 am
a terrorist continue to show russian positions and syrian forces but try to attack russian bases we hope that the deescalation zone will be a refuge for the rebels and should not be a platform to make a tux we discuss joint measures to neutralize terrorist hotbeds and adlib and to normalize the situation in this region and in syria as a whole further one angered by an attack on a turkish convoy in northern syria earlier this month and the surrounding of one of turkey's observation posts in years that the behavior of syrian forces is an acceptable. to look the provocation by the regime have reached an acceptable level i would like to say it is especially by our borders our right to self-defense and this leaves us no choice we have to act to protect ourselves russian and turkey have been fighting on opposite sides of the war in syria but the relationship has grown closer in recent years with increasing a konami and military ties during adolescence visit to britain c.s.o.
12:11 am
both leaders couldn't stress enough how close their nations have become symbolizing this was in the livery of the russian as 400 anti-missile defense system on tuesday but the spyder warm words the focus was on their differences and if and if put them can make sure that at a one doesn't go home empty handed while erdogan might not have got what he wanted and it lip his host put in make sure their friendship was in good shape step last and al-jazeera. putin and also welcomed the creation of a so-called safe zone of control in northern syria kurdish led forces have begun withdrawing their fighters near the border with turkey as part of a deal between ankara and washington and the u.s. has been backing the kurdish s.d.f. a techie views the group as a terrorist organization bennett smith has more from antakya on turkey's role in syria's war ready to tie bird one's dash to moscow was partly because of the
12:12 am
challenge that the turkish military now finds itself with it has a dozen observation posts in what are supposed to be deescalation zones in northwestern syria or one of those is now marooned in what is now syrian regime controlled territory because it was taken back in fighting last week and the syrian regime is pushing against other areas in this deescalation zone and these observation posts risk falling back into territory under syrian control roger type early one wants to make sure that those turkish soldiers are not threatened by a longer term challenge for the turkish president is how much longer he needs to keep or wants to keep the soldiers in those observation posts when what was a deescalation zone is now territory under syrian control similar at the same time syrian kurdish forces that they have pulled back from the turkish border up to 17 kilometers they're pulling heavy weapons and troops but only from the countryside not from the towns in the cities it's nothing close to what the turks were asking
12:13 am
for they wanted them at least 30 kilometers away from the border but this is a u.s. brokered arrangement and it's something that for now turkey is going to have to live with german coronas a middle east analyst at the arab center and joins me live from washington d.c. thanks for being with us to go back to the meeting between adam one and putin over syria given they're on opposite sides of this how significant is this gathering. it was they gather to go fix the city somehow turkish observation point has been under bombardment by the syrian regime with russian consent so they had to come to some hold meet and try to manage this increase the decomp lex relation on syria so we're not sure got what he wants but maybe he got some pretty troops but they're but their interests remain in live very opposite side but they have larger interests basically to deter u.s. influence in syria and the region but on military specifically it's been for
12:14 am
a while now for a few years a very difficult situation where they are both on the opposite side so that putin said that the 2 leaders had agreed quote additional steps a joint steps to quote normalize the situation in libya including measures aimed at reaching out what he called terrorists that what you think those will be those measures. i mean this their slogan but magic trick in this situation says while now. russia they don't want any us which is a shame groups the turkey doesn't have full control over them. and they have their own supporters see the groups were not able to win over. and. turkey doesn't want to lose it live because 1st you have larger whiff of refugee and 2nd it was a very strong influence inside syria and also they want this area to be more on the their control rather than the syrian regime control so this is where we stand now
12:15 am
we are trying to do there frank to do some cosmetic measures basically to reinforce some observation point to basically keep some forces out away from that like instigation zone like they do in the us turkey saves all but it's impossible to to do this in lieu because those forces specialists as a lot of the food a lot of the british control and the syrian regime is insisting on or a military solution so there is no way to have a military solution at this point and this though it was a political solution at this point considering the. conflicting factors on the ground so we are in this impasse now which is the how to to to manage for both sides i mean given what you said about the impasse and the lack of a political or military solution what do you make of putin saying that he in the text you to hint at emphasize that syria should remain a unified country realistically cannot happen. it's hard because they are all dividing the cake somehow they are basically this when turkey and russia took up
12:16 am
all of this i specifically mentioned the issue of the kurdish the good the focal point of the syria they don't want the very autonomous or dependent. and this is where they come together against the american interest but when you go into the details this is where the issue comes the see the russia want the syrian regime to take control of the syrian turkish border the americans want more at the national like the americans of the 1st of the best of control in addition to it's good to short on so this line of syrian on the one that italy is basically the line could this problem look at the scoreboard to the syria. thank you very much indeed to have your thoughts thank you. for the nigerian government has been criticized for failing hundreds of girls and young women who were victims of human trafficking a report by human rights watch revealed an unknown number of nigerian women have
12:17 am
been forced into sexual slavery and physical labor it found that the victims some of them in their teens have received little or no help despite their traumatic experiences and that existing systems either fail to help or sometimes breach victims' rights human rights watch has recommended an overhaul of the country's support system and says nigeria's government has to do more to prevent trafficking going to just reports from abuja. hundreds of nigerian girls and young women are trapped in this dusty mining village on the border between mali and guinea of asia say some as young as 13 were held against their will forced into prostitution torture and lived in desperate conditions. they lived with promises of better life but ended up a sex slaves. months after some of the more rescued activists say the girls and
12:18 am
faring much better than when they were held against their will and fortunately the nightmare does not and when they come back to nigeria because many of the government services are lacking and. some of them are locked up in government run shelters where they are not allowed to leave well they're not allowed to communicate with their families almost replicating some of the conditions that they experience when they allow their trafficker activists say victims of human trafficking often face very structures and like basic needs of the returned social workers say many of the girls are finding it difficult to reintegrate because of stigma but the bigger challenge is providing job skills for them in a country already struggling with high unemployment among its young population. i do media briefing the nigerian government denied accusations by human rights watch the girls have been abundant or denied their basic rights the end terror reports.
12:19 am
many figments of the imagination of the writers as the narratives fall below the standards in the operations of shelters as well as the standards for. an assistance it is important to note that the agency observes all the world's best practices in handling as enshrined. critics say the number of skills training programs run by both government and nongovernmental organizations are united great and can only take a fraction of those in need so they want to see more government action to address psychological economic and social needs of the victims of human trafficking many of whom were forced into prostitution. but with the economy strew struggling after a recent recession relief could still be a long way off for these young women. are larger.

12:22 am
a good progress if the decision if we had also progress in the last hour and we progress in this stuff so we are finalizing. that remaining part we are looking at that as soon as the remaining point or to finalize so they diminish something which involved is remaining the last fight. so says close to the lebanese group hezbollah say it's preparing a strike against israel after drones crashed in beirut but it doesn't want a new war israel has not claimed responsibility for the drones but in a speech on sunday is but only to side hassan nasrallah described it as the 1st israeli attack in lebanon since a month long war in 2006 israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu says there should quote be careful so much. i've heard what now the dollar said i suggest he come down he knows well that israel knows how to defeat itself and pay
12:23 am
back its enemies i want to tell him and leave it alone which hosts this organization that aspires to destroy us and also to the chief of iran's quds force be careful what you say and even more what your reactions. iran's president says his country will not hold talks on any nuclear deal with the u.s. unless all sanctions are lifted a son rouhani is comments came a day after u.s. president donald trump said at the g. 7 summit in france he was open to meeting iranian leadership president has offered to facilitate discussions between the 2 sides but rouhani insists washington must take the 1st step or said break has more from tehran. president rouhani has been speaking in front this morning and he took the opportunity to address some of the news coming out of the g. 7 mainly that donald trump has said that he's willing to meet president rouhani if the conditions are right now what president rouhani has said is he's reiterated the
12:24 am
iranian line that there will be no talks and negotiations as long as the u.s. sanctions are in place he said that all sanctions against iranian nation must be lifted that is illegitimate and cruel now iran has referred to the sanctions as economic terrorism. experts have been drastically reduced the banking sector has been affected and the economy has also been affected president rouhani said that he did not see any positive developments unless the united states change the wrong path it was on this is very different from what president rouhani said yesterday because what he suggested a gay people some hope that he was willing to sit down and talk to president donald trump president rouhani said yesterday that if he had to attend a meeting with somebody or someone to forward in national cause and to alleviate the people's problems he would do that for the national interest now overnight that seems to have changed and that could be because of the supreme leader ayatollah khomeini who decides all the major policy directions because in the past he has
12:25 am
said that iran will not sit down with the united states as long as the sanctions are in place in fact he's called it a double poison basically saying that you are centuries sitting down with the very people that are making your country suffer so it looks like there has been a change overnight and iran is reiterating its positions that there are no talks no negotiations as long as the u.s. sanctions are in place. families of palestinians whose bodies have been withheld by israel have been marking an annual national day demanding their return campaign to say israel is holding 51 bodies in mosques 4 of him died in custody and they're also holding 253 in so-called numbered graves the majority of whom had carried out attacks during the 2nd intifada in nearly 2003 fourths it reports. it is tending the grave of his aren't she died in 2017 at home in gaza having spent the previous 26 years hoping and working for the return of her son paris by road

more than 300 bodies most in numbered graves most dating from the violence of the 2nd intifada in the early 2000 that's when sun i mean was killed a fighter in hamas is arca son brigade he was attending what he thought was a secret meeting with other factions at a school near the city of janine he was one of 5 killed when israeli forces attacked. i wish i could just lay my eyes on him one last time i won them to hand his body over so we can bury him according to islamic law. but the prospects are slim especially in the absence of talks between the palestinian leadership and the israelis more likely that she and the other families will be repeating their demands in another year's time for sit out in the occupied west bank and more still ahead on there including women are advised to avoid wearing

trafficking. you can position parties have agreed to work together to find a way to legislate against a new deal breaks it is also not ruled out using a confidence vote to bring down prime minister burris johnson who is committed to leaving the e.u. on october the 31st with or without a deal parliament returns from its summer break next week and opposition leader jeremy corbyn has been contacting m.p.'s of all parties to drum up support on britain or 160 and he's voted against no deal to ask if they would recognise the importance next week of supporting a legislative approach which would be an all party approach to ensure we don't crush all the problems that will create. has more from westminster in central london. for months now the main criticism of the anti breck's it pro remain in the e.u. policies has been that they spend far too much time bickering with each other and
12:33 am
not enough time coming out with some joint position on how to oppose and defeat brix it but eventually at this point at the end of the summer with parliament starting next week it looks as if they are trying to suggest that they've got their act together and are behaving in a in the united way so gone for the time being seems to be the suggestion of holding a no confidence vote in boris johnson his government's just on the grounds that they couldn't win because there aren't enough conservatives who would support that position because it make it look like they're in the pockets of jeremy colvin the labor party leader but instead what these opposition parties have now said is that they will do everything they can see a legislate against a no deal breakfast and to force a delay in the process so the u.k. doesn't end up leaving on october 31st which is what boris johnson has absolutely vowed will happen and so to that end the main calendar date looks like it'll be something around september the 9th when parliament debates issues to do with northern ireland and of all governments it looks like they will try to add bits on
12:34 am
to force that to late in the deal but it's one thing saying they will do that is quite another actually being able to do it because as we saw earlier this year parliament voted repeatedly against no deal and yet it still remains the option because they couldn't find anything else to vote for and so the next thing all these opposition parties have to do is to think of something else that replaces a no deal brick sets which could command a majority in parliament otherwise the threat of no deal is as they would see it remains on the table and i think at this point you'd be you'd be a fool to rule out a national election because in my end up still being the only way to break the deadlock. the u.k. prime minister has told european commission president. that britain will leave without a deal unless the backstop that's designed to prevent a hard border on the island of ireland is quote abolished but our lives foreign minister says measures proposed by london to replace the backstop do not come close to what's needed speaking of wrong side his check counterpart in prague simon
