5:01 am
diplomat to ukraine testifies in an impeachment inquiry and explains how the president tried to pressure kiev to discredit his political rival and the protesters in lebanon keep up the pressure on the government despite new reforms to help ease the economic crisis. hello everyone turkey and russia have reached a deal to clear out kurdish backed fighters from northern syria ankara launched its offensive in the area last week but suspended the operation following a u.s. brokered cease fire a report from step past the now in such. with only our us left off a u.s. brokered cease fire in syria russia stepped in president putin offered help to remove and this goodish vitus at the turkish syrian border together with syrian border troops was delayed we share turkey's concern about the growing threats of
5:02 am
terrorism and the growth of ethnic tensions in the region these tensions and the separatist mood in recent times where in our opinion artificially created by outsiders. goodish fighters have until next tuesday evening local time to clear turkey's 30 kilometer so-called safe zone russian military police will then start joint patrols with turkish forces along almost the entire north eastern syrian border. is on the barren moving threats posed by either terrorist organization this operation in syria guarantees syria's territorial integrity and political unity we never had eyes on the country's territory and sovereignty as turkey all steps are taken in the field we have taken with sensitivity. both leaders agreed that the syrian constitutional committee should start its work on october 30 despite the current actions on the ground within insists the courts should be part of the
5:03 am
political solution for syria after a long discussion with president putin not only managed to become the main power broker in syria he also gained territory for his allies syrian president assad who now gets back control over cultural border areas but we can only call this a russian success if they manage to remove and this arm goodish fighters from this 30 kilometers zone. only down will the turkish military operation and according to the russian foreign minister who spoke after the meeting put and also made it clear that for any future solution in syria the turkish and syrian government have to reach their own deal russia wants to revive the 998 agreement between syria and turkey in which syria committed to stop supporting could if fighters russia was quick to fill the vacuum left by the u.s. withdrawal from north eastern syria but by moscow's own admission achieving any
5:04 am
kind of lasting solution will be a long and complicated process steps last an al-jazeera sochi. just to put it on the map for you for a bit of context this is the safe zone that anchor. it wants to create and we go along the turkey syria border 30 kilometers inside syria and those joint patrols we talked about would be 10 kilometers deep on both sides of the area running between and again the thoughts not steven fisher we spoke to the a professor at the university of california berkeley he specializes in russian affairs and says moscow has benefited from donald trump's decision to pull u.s. troops out of syria the story is really all about russia in the united states this is a great moment for putin he has sought a foothold in the middle east and to restore at least soviet levels of russian influence in the middle east for many years this is a great moment for him because he's actually getting the united states to withdraw from positions in the middle east and then occupying those positions united states
5:05 am
is withdrawing from putin also cares a lot about prestige in international relations and humiliating the united states the way he's managed to do is a big accomplishment for him and he's really rubbing it in his defense minister announced that the united states has one hour and 31 minutes to get out of syria president took the letter the crazy letter the president trump sent him and ostentatiously threw it in the garbage the united states is being humiliated by its own president who would have thought that the united states would suddenly pull up stakes and abandon its long term ally that has done the heavy lifting in the battle against isis in syria and simply leave them to be destroyed perhaps even ethnically cleansed by hostile turkish turkish forces who would think that the united states would withdraw also hastily from its bases the russian media would be in there recording pictures of you know empty soda cans left on desks and you know trucks fleeing out of town as local kurdish forces attacked them this is a total humiliation for the united states this is exactly what putin wanted of
5:06 am
course. on to other news and britain's parliament has rejected prime minister barak's johnson's plan to fast track his brags that deal with the european union it means there is now little chance of the u.k. leaving the block by the date of october 31st story chalons with this report from westminster. it is as m.p.'s point out unprecedented for parliament to pass such a large and important bill so quickly yet the governments wanted its withdrawal agreement bill through the commons before the end of the week mr speaker i was incredibly concerned when i was reminded by my wife earlier today that we spent my wife and i spent longer choosing a school for then we have city bay this incredibly cool to hear on tuesday the legislation for leaving the european union was facing 2 hurdles would m.p.'s vote to give it more consideration and would they agree to the government's
5:07 am
breakneck timetable the prime minister hopes he could focus minds with this warning if parliament refuses to allow the brics to happen and instead gets its way in decides to delay everything until january possibly longer is a great regret i would say that the book the bill will have to be pulled and we will have to go forward much as a writer may not like it we'll have to go forward to a general election 1st up would m.p.'s give his withdrawal agreement build their approval in principle so the guys have it the ayes have it m.p.'s gave it the north through to a 2nd reading a crucial victory for the prime minister the 1st time in this tortured saga that parliament has given any breaks a deal any kind of approval but glory was short lived next up was the vote on the timetable for the guys to the right 308 it's no use to the last 322 so the notorious having their nose have it once again
5:08 am
m.p.'s have slammed the brakes on brakes it tonight's the house has refused to be bounced into debating a hugely significant piece of legislation in just 2 days with barely any notice and an analysis of the. impact of this bill the prime minister is the also of his own misfortune jeremy called when offered to work together to find a mutually agreeable timetable for us johnson responded by saying he was putting the bill on hold for now his do or die dreams of leaving the e.u. on october 31st look to have been dealt a mortal blow so what i was next depends on the e.u. it's been considering that letter boris johnson was obliged by parliament to write last saturday requesting a break sit extension if it grants a long 1 january or further then as we just heard from the prime minister he is
5:09 am
going to try pushing for a general election if we get something shorter all more flexible then that suggests that the e.u. like boris johnson just wants to get the brakes it done. al-jazeera london the top u.s. diplomat in ukraine has wrapped up 10 hours of testimony as part of the impeachment inquiry against president obama trump democrats leading the deposition say william taylor's provided the clearest account that trump pressured ukraine to investigate a political rival in exchange for military aid and support from alan fischer. william taylor is the acting u.s. ambassador to ukraine a career diplomat who served democrats and republican administrations the white house ordered him to ignore the impeachment inquiry he defied that instruction his closed door testimony may be highly damaging to president trump he was what he the white house meeting with ukraine's new president vladimir selenski was being held up until he delivered ukrainian help in investigating donald trump's political
5:10 am
rival joe biden in his opening statement he said he spoke with ambassador gordon saundra and the u.s. envoy to the european union during that phone call ambassador sunderland told me that president trump had told him that he wants president selenski to state publicly that ukraine will investigate burst and alleged ukrainian interference in the 2016 election taylor said in the statement joe biden's son hunter had been a board member of a ukrainian gas company killer continued ambassador sunderland also told me that he no recognized he made a mistake by eliot telling the ukrainian officials to whom he spoke that a white house meeting with president selenski was the pendant on a public announcement of investigations in fact ambassador saw and said everything was dependent on such an announcement including security assistance while the president wasn't calling this a quid pro quo taylor suggests that's exactly what it was soliciting foreign help in u.s. elections is illegal in my 10 short months in congress it's not even noon right
5:11 am
and this is my most disturbing day in congress so far a growing number of americans believe donald trump should be impeached and removed from office for the 1st time that number is more than 50 percent the president has tried to discredit the investigation tweeting all republicans must remember what they are witnessing here a lynching the president should not compare it constitutionally mandated impeachment inquiry to such. dangerous and dark chapter of american history other democrats called the lynching reference disgusting but one of the president's biggest supporters wasn't ready to be done in every since this is a mob taking over the rule of law this is fundamentally un-american and until that changes i will fight back as hard as i can in the house investigation continues largely behind closed doors there are plans for open hearing soon on impeachment
5:12 am
could come before the end of the year alan fischer washington stay friends with us now from washington the editor at large at the hill and also the host of al-jazeera is new weekly politics show the bottom line nice to see a stave the sheer weight of evidence that we have now it must start to tell it must start to make a difference particularly with what we hear now today from. the ukrainian received well i think it's making a difference inside washington but that has not yet trickled down to other parts of the country we saw it really last week when members of the national security council staff fiona hill who was the president's adviser on the national council for you can't crane in russia leaked out some of the details about rudy giuliani running a shadow foreign policy and some of the concerns that john bolton had about giuliani what made this so important at that moment and it's only gotten bigger since is
5:13 am
this is the 1st time republicans have criticized the president who are inside his can't not because of policy difference but policy differences but because of perceived improprieties that's what's begun to change and you're beginning to feel this heat up is this enough if you are talking about the republicans in the senate to ultimately will be the ones who decide if the president is impeached whether he leaves office or not is it's now starting to look like enough of them to turn what they might be not their position. i won't say come all that it's enough yet we see people out like senator mitt romney who is very much out there and presenting himself potentially as an alternative to president trump i think but he's been very critical i think people like susan collins the senator from maine and also cory gardner the senator from colorado are all looking as if they have serious concerns with what's going on but you just played a tape with senator lindsey graham who is sticking you know he's sort of sticking
5:14 am
strong with the president but at the same time he's been very upset about the betrayal of the kurds in syria and said if there is anything beyond the ukraine phone call that is a crime he would support an impeachment inquiry so it's wobbly in other places so it's too much too early to say this is enough but certainly it's more than a week ago and on the flip side of things if we think about president trump and the white house. is he effectively digging himself a deeper hole at the moment because his attitude is to say well yeah i mean i'm going you know i want biden investigated go off to him the rest of the country sort of saying what are you saying you're incriminating. but his way to do it it's to go on the attack every time. well this president is highly unusual past presidents of the united states have gotten into trouble with what we call the coverup it wasn't the crime it was the cover up this president doesn't cover up to much that we know of he basically blurts it out on twitter says it out loud and kind of normalizes it
5:15 am
away with whatever behavior is unprecedented and some would argue illegal but his normalize some of these alleged illegal acts or unconstitutional acts with his base who have not yet abandoned him so it is as someone said on my show today the bottom line he's doing it all out in the open not with the cover up and this is what is unusual about the times that we're in just briefly state as far as the impeachment inquiry goes with what the democrats are doing is there a sort of a vague timeline of what happens or is it just up to the democrats to keep calling witnesses keep building the case and then eventually at some point they move they're trying to get it done before christmas but i think that originally the democrats had an unrealistic timeline they thought they had enough evidence to move on things like the the phone call issue in the call to the president of ukraine in
5:16 am
trying to withhold essentially you know hold hostage security aid unless they open an investigation into hunter biden in the biden activities in ukraine but my sense is that in all of these cases one of the things that the reality about american politics everything takes much longer than one think so i think we don't know the exact timeline what we do know is that unrealistic timeline wasn't met and that this is going to go into christmas and my bet is it goes beyond christmas steve clemons is the host of the bottom line a new discussion show next showing at 1430 g.m.t. today steve thank you i'm all thank you. here's what's coming up for you on this news hour chiller its president sends a message to the nation as the worst unrest in 3 decades threatens to spiral out of control human rights groups raise concerns about the way guinea is dealing with anti-government protesters and sport a night of drama in the champions league a full round up coming up with.
5:17 am
a look at lebanon now where protesters remain on the streets despite the emergency reforms announced by the prime minister demonstrations began last week over the government's plan to impose new taxes stephanie decades reporting now from tripoli in northern lebanon. day 6 and many roadblocks remain in place banks and schools are closed across lebanon many bank machines don't have cash the prime minister's proposals for forms haven't changed the situation on the ground that are the shit people are going into the streets for their future and the future of their children in reality the political class that we have has less than nothing before this uprising if we can call it that the government tried to pick the pocket of every poor person until they were left with nothing but prime minister sad how to be has met ambassadors of various countries including the u.s. and russia as well as the arab league they welcomed the reforms but also urged him
5:18 am
to address the demands of the people but what these people who remain on the streets really want is for the government to go and adviser to the prime minister had this to say the chance or the possibility for a cabinet reshuffle or something like this going this will be determined in the coming few days and it is one of the options being put on the table we drove up from beirut to the northern city of tripoli roadblocks here too on the main highway when we got to tripoli the square was starting to fill up many of those graduates everyone is on in florida but people who have read this area they're living in very horrible of institutions to see how we're living their houses. to understand. all of this will have an election system that is highly sectarian this is all the people who have been in charge for 30 years keep surviving so for me the
5:19 am
most important thing right now i mean i know people are saying yes to the exam which was a bit translates to you know the big almost like the dictatorship it's because it's more about the. electoral law that needs to change and even the most important thing right now or else the same people we thought it was coming. as the sunset more and more people came. it is the night that this is where our movie comes alive not on 2nd city has traditionally been a supporter base prime minister saad had a tripoli has been neglected the majority of its people are poor there has been a huge turnout here over the last 6 days it seems the jews have had enough here the message is the same as in beirut in other cities across this country they don't want the same people who got them into this dire situation to be the ones who try to fix it stephanie decker al-jazeera tripoli north lebanon. i'm not sure where
5:20 am
president sebastian pinera has announced social reforms in the hope of ending protests there that have left 15 people dead he's apologized for not anticipating the unrest and promised to increase pensions and reduce electricity and medical costs reports from santiago. another day of protests of paralyzed much of downtown something i would choose. tensions in the city remain high as thousands of demonstrators continue to flood the streets. is a professional driver he hasn't participated in the protests but he shares the prescriptions of demonstrators. i have my own vehicle and i work with dignity and abide by the law but what has that meant for me it's meant throwing my money away in tax and if i don't pay my share i can lose my house but not that big businessman they don't pay and then they get bailed out what about me to her since the weekend
5:21 am
protests have continued to intensify every day it seems more sectors of society are joining in the demonstrations never that on tuesday evening chilean president. announced a national plan to improve social programs in an effort to calm the unrest. that will solve this situation often equity abuse has led to a general and since he had movement on behalf of millions and millions of chileans i reckon. and demand forgiveness for the lack of vision. social analysts like mine will get it don't believe the unrest is part of a growing movement of young people who he says are rejecting the very notion of political system. there is a commonality among that the mystery theme of calling for equality and denouncing abuse but also the possibility of a better future the perspective people have to do things are bad now but the future will be even worse for those children. apart from anger over growing inequality
5:22 am
protesters have also denounced it heavy handed crackdown by police and armed forces against peaceful protesters a state of emergency and a military enforced curfew remains in effect here in the chilean capital for the 4th day in a row that means thousands of the city's residents are forced to return to their homes every day before sunset or run the risk of being arrested for curfew violations. more than 5400 people have been arrested nationwide since the start of the crisis with thousands of protesters continuing to defy curfew and declaring a national strike for the coming days that number should arise when lit up a little. so those protests in chile on the ones we saw in lebanon as well are just the latest in a series of demonstrations all over the world against unpopular economic policies think about haiti 6 weeks of violent demonstrations over economic conditions and corruption there people are calling for the president to step down there is president lenin moreno was forced to cancel proposed austerity measures after
5:23 am
indigenous groups launched large scale protests thing about inflation plagues zimbabwe mass demonstrations their. fuel price hikes earlier this year and iraq demonstrations against unemployment and poor public services this month which killed upwards of $150.00 people so we've got stan boy go with us now. didn't sculler with the american enterprise institute to talk about those talking joining us on the skype from washington there's a theme here quite clearly people get upset at changes and in some cases they are successful in their projects you know look at lebanon they have actually had reforms and changes chile it seems to be happening as well but i guess the key is really that not getting to this place not getting to this position in the 1st place our governments just getting something wrong here. well there are certainly a number of governments i think worldwide that govern terribly that are exploited and done libertarian but i don't think that's necessarily were drives these these
5:24 am
protests i think under one hand we're dealing with the continuing fallout from the global financial crisis as we've seen people struggle economically put it past decade or so we've seen the rise of new technologies that may make it a little easier to coordinate protests. and we you know we also need this space to be able to protest and so i don't think it's a coincidence that many of these protests are taking place in countries that have you know at these some level of democratic openness read it's not a coincidence that we see protests in on congo and that in mainland china it is not a coincidence that we see protests in iraq and that in saudi arabia. i don't think it's the very worst. situation is that really triggered these protests i think you know people need to be at these hopeful to some extent but their protests will be
5:25 am
just the thing though at some point in any place in the world taxes do have to go up train fares will go up in some cases quite normal i would say things now how the government's going to be able to do the sort of thing if every time they were here the fact that they could be riots on the street. well so i do think you should think of the specific issues more as a trigger and that there are underlying levels of discontent you know driven in part by this sort of long slow recovery from the global financial crisis or other longstanding injustices so i don't think you should see this as no government can can date any unpopular measure ever again another thing that's important to remember that and that many of these issues there are people there are people voters and sometimes even protest movements on both sides i mean we've seen in western europe large protests in france in the netherlands against aggressive
5:26 am
environmentalists public policies while at the same time seeing mass protests and in london for example in favor of basically the same kind of policies or you have to remember that these kind of protests are also just an important feature of how democratic decision making is done by the it's not all surely through representative legislatures ok so i take i take your point that these issues can be seen as triggers for bigger underlying problems that say that if there are underlying problems in chile and in lebanon and in haiti and all of these other countries is this pointing to something maybe not another global financial crisis but bigger problems down the road. well i don't know i think i think it does signal this can then we've seen that in in many elections all across the world that
5:27 am
people seem to be disappointed in their sort of interest that wouldn't stop when politicians establishment institutions and i do continue to think that. so the relatively slow growth we've seen over the past decade is and is an underlying driver of that and you know i don't think it's that different to say vote for someone like oregon or modi or trump than it is to show your frustration in public and so i wouldn't really fit in with that broader underlying discontent. with this that within this it could. stand going to really interesting to talk to you about this putting it into some global perspective thanks for your time. still ahead for you on this news from the ballot to the streets thousands demanding answers from believe you election commission also the dam project that continues to divide ethiopia's prime minister pushes egypt to return to dialogue sport england and new zealand at the center of

5:37 am
thousands of people have taken to the streets of uprising in the capital for libya i think they want to say hi i'm their protesting against what they see as very suspicious prices in the electoral process in bolivia basically the rocky count has been frozen a couple of times so we still don't have just the right the count of results from the believe the election that was on sunday and the suspicion for those in the over in the opposition movement is that that is hiding some sort of manipulation of numbers behind the scenes we do know as well now that one of the vice presidents of the electoral tribe you know has resigned because he says that he wasn't agree he didn't agree with that suspension of the vote with our freezing of the vote count there now the government for its part has said that they will not allow the oas that they want the oas sue to guy sation of american states so it's the binding count they're still like to go this isn't the right because this is for
5:38 am
a vote count that's on the way at the moment so it's also trying to make some sort of gestures to show that the process isn't. being manipulated but you have what a lot of people out here and we've seen that the police here are not allowing them to get any closer to where the supreme electoral tribunals and where the 1st page is actually taking place we've seen tear gas we're seeing stones for i was for days so now see how the protests develop. into. when it has been inaugurated the new cabinet of president will be daughter integrated veiled the team that is made up of more than a dozen people among them his election rival. widodo was sworn in for a 2nd term earlier this week after easily winning a 2nd 5 year term back in april. now after an election that's all prime minister justin trudeau as liberal as return to office without minority government canadian
5:39 am
politicians are offering starkly different views of the results trudeau lost support in the country's west but held onto parliamentary seats in the east and the center and have to govern with the support of smaller parties to the left of his liberal party that you lack as a latina. meeting the voters taking selfies in the day after his government was reduced to a minority justin trudeau must be both relieved and disappointed his liberal party lost parliamentary seats but not power he put a brave face on things and he spoke to the country early tuesday morning you are sending our liberal team to work to ottawa with a clear mandate we will make life more affordable we will continue to fight climate change we will get guns all of our streets and we will keep her here. when was welcomed in other countries us president trump tweeted it was

a hard fought and wonderful victory tweets from spain's pedro sanchez and british prime minister boris johnson so they look forward to working with the new government in canada opposition conservative leader andrew scheer took a different view he said large swathes of the country had rejected policies he needed to change course so it cannot continue to attack our energy sector to kill big projects that get our natural resources around the world and that we will do everything we can to get our energy sector back on its feet and make sure that all canadians understand that when western canada succeeds all canadians succeed that may be true but in both parts of the country there are differing views the west thinks the east is stifling its petroleum based economy a lot of eastern voters favor aggressive action against climate change even if that hurts western oil production a trudeau minority government will have to seek support from smaller parties to its politike. the left making deals to get legislation through that might not be well
5:41 am
