transport gas from the eastern mediterranean to europe that said rhodes with turkey's deal with libya she extracts gas from the sea let's head straight to uncorrupt where mohammed is live for us hi 1st of all do you think this is likely to pass the turkish parliament is there any opposition of told to the proposals. yes indeed the heart of that is the very expectation of the government here and they've been a lot being the different political in parliament to ensure that they get the vote that they need to pass these more from we are seeing an accelerated process here this motion is coming to parliament a week early and parliament has been forced to cut short its winter recess by almost a week so that they could come and pass these motion the defense minister. who has been speaking and he says that the turkish military is civil ready to
11:03 am
deploy and it's high time they get not only the green light also parliament but also us us president. on the bill making it a right to fight and then he says there will be ready to move with seeing a situation where it is really itching to deploy its troops to libya and just quickly if you would not make just remind of white turkey is interested in libya what's behind this. influence of course on this is something techie husband trying to get across is the fall of the libyan strongman mom but i look at duffy it's not just a lot about modern time. border agreement that accompanied the military corp
11:04 am
agreement that is the culmination of which is today small ssion which will discuss the deployment of troops to libya is also a crucial part of it because turkey is really trying to get us much influence as possible only is 10 minutes from me and see especially at the time cyprus greece and israel are working on the project of they also not only extracting gas in the eastern mediterranean but also shipping it to europe it's looking more and more difficult but they will be able to do that without the blessing of turkey ok mohamed life as an anchor thank you very much in hades. well just there is. joins me now in the studio this is quite a complicated topic is it not but it all centers on libya what is effectively a failed state just how did the country get to this point because this is
11:05 am
a country that has always been divided along tribal and regional lines so the the potential for bringing everyone together to form a new government after the arsenal gaddafi in 2011 was always going to be an impossible task and this explains why. from 2014 we started to see this divide between east and west is under the control of holy father after west under the control of the government of national accord despite all the efforts by the international community to build bridges between the east and west never worked because i have to would always say that i am the only guarantee against a descent into chaos or the rule of groups affiliated with i.c.l. and other extremist groups the government of national accord based into pretty would tell you that the reason why we lost our revolution in 2011 is for us to
11:06 am
build a vibrant genuine civic society with after you want to have that because the man is known for being a general determined to build a strong government under the control of the military establishment so against the backdrop of this divide between east and west. it all failed except for 2015 with the international committee managed to create this power sharing agreement in morocco it didn't work and it continues the device continues the potential this time for libya to fragment is massive because how thought is determined to take over tripoli he's about a few miles south of from the capital tripoli backed by saudi arabia the united arab emirates and egypt he sees the momentum tilting in his own favor and this explains why the government of national accord is desperate for a deal with turkey. and we mentioned there are all these external countries who are becoming involved in this in this situation and just talk us through some of the
11:07 am
competing interests why it's so easy arabia involved why are countries like france involved and why is turkey getting involved what are they hoping to get out of the situation in libya for saudi arabia the united arab emirates and egypt it's simple they skin said of the west to be controlled by muslim brotherhood affiliated groups and they say we will we want tolerate this because of the managed to win and take over they would further expand their influence in north africa and they would really revive the spirit of 2011 spring on the other hand. turkey for example has always been siding along with qatar with the with a government of national accord saying that this is a legitimate government now when you look at europe it's a different story 1st of all they saw themselves grappling with a morass of number of sub-saharan africans being smuggled by wars in libya towards your brother so this is something that has to and number 2 they saw eisel planning
11:08 am
to build a strong platform in north in libya to be able to attack europe and they said we need someone to step in and they so what if i have to as the man who could do this to us the problem is that starting from 2014 we started to see some sense of disagreement between italy and france about how to deal with europe with libya italy favors talking to the government of national accord friends has been siding with that divide within the e.u. itself has been an impediment to a comprehensive political settlement in libya ok and it gets even more complicated but we will come back to that straight the day from now. joining us on set thank you very much indeed. taiwan's top military officer in the mean has been killed during a helicopter crash landing 7 others who were also on board when the helicopter made that american sea landing on the north of the island rescue teams have been dispatched and the defense ministry says there could be survivors well in the past

11:20 am
that it's taking either a neutral stance or it's protecting the u.s. embassy because that's what a government has to do. and yet to the outer gates of the embassy burned and vandalized bear witness to the iraqi government's inability to protect the u.s. presence here the speech here at the u.s. embassy appears to be coming to an end with u.s. trade iraqi count the service forces now taking over the security and basically securing the area as the crowd but the built of brick gates has said that this is just the 1st lesson for the united states they have vowed that they will not let down until they see a full departure of u.s. forces from iraq as they want to hold to the al jazeera but about. hillary mann leverett says so former white house national security official she says president trump should be concerned find the unrest in iraq is being perceived in washington what we see is an interior an enduring symbol the storming of the u.s.

embassy by thousands of iraqis it's an enduring symbol that nearly 17 years after the u.s. invasion of iraq one trillion dollars spent $5000.00 u.s. lives lost that the u.s. position in iraq is is worse today than it ever was and i think the trump administration president trump in particular but also secretary of state pompei o are very concerned that what is happening in iraq could at least you know on television look like in other benghazi moment that's what they're talking about here the concern that back in 2013 when the u.s. u.s. diplomatic compound was stormed in magazine libya and the u.s. ambassador was killed it was a tragic terrible moment for the united states but what if it was an issue that both president and especially secretary of state pompei oh use mr lee to attack then secretary of state hillary clinton when she ran for president they are both

11:25 am
a heavy heart perhaps but wholeheartedly with a deep sense of commitment to the rule of law to the public's interest and to the citizens of the state of israel and. they said you know he and his supporters have claimed that the charges are politically motivated and that law enforcement and the judicial system in effect mounting a coup against him. netanyahu now faces a tough political fight yes to win an election form a government and then persuade m.p.'s to vote for immunity i mean if he only last as long as he is in office as prime minister or if you remains a member of the knesset the move will delay the prosecution of these 3 court cases by months or even stall the process completely until that is out of politics it's already been a very uncertain year in israeli politics and the future it would seem is equally uncertain and long car how does or what's true slim. at least 16 and mates have
