team. claiming. this is international and welcome to you from all of us here we have. bit by bit the syrian army back by russian is advancing against islamic state in the province of dead as or although each victory comes at a heavy price the terrorists are fighting fiercely to retain their last strongholds in the region and the newly liberated very village of hotline that witnessed witnessed a brutal battle. has been able to get first hand experience of the fighting the
fall of the syrian army across the only bridge over the euphrates river in the area straight to the front line and from there he sent us this report. under a bright blue sky through devastated country across the euphrates over the only bridge in the entire province we came to the village of hadleigh less than a day ago this was part of the caliphate but no longer from what we were told the syrian army's fifth division did the heavy lifting here much of had has already been swept and cleared but no tool it isn't like the movies do is rarely open at the first peek. then came the first warning. and.
he was right it wasn't one of their as. isis back up had arrived reinforce the jihad ists felt confident enough to pick a fight and we weren't in a good place the syrian army responded quickly but there was some confusion at first. then about. there were no many here. five hundred meters from hadleigh village ice is making it still. doesn't it dug in. behind that house over there. to. be harassing the syrian troops what they're doing is they're driving around in circles you see speed and distance as they're protection taking more shots the
other things hiding behind a house driving out firing for a little bit then hiding back before the syrians. with heavier weapons it isn't going to get the game them very much but it's a harassing in keeping everyone today during the fierce firefight one of the pickup trucks stopped here is one of the jihad ists briefly showing himself while spraying away on full auto with the clear targets out came the heavy of weapons. it was a miss try again. the scrap isis lost but everything you just saw was shot within the span of
a single hour in one village with a small unit these scenes being repeated. across the front hundreds of kilometers wide more i guess d. of. from had syria. years of islamic terror have left lives devastated previously found russian speaking children stranded in a baghdad all for those who were believed to have been taken to iraq by their radicalized parents out of us some of them are now preparing. to be reunited with their lives at. the cattle and leader has signed a declaration for independence although took a step back from adopting it in the hope of opening dialogue with maturity among the popular we asked for a mandate to declare catalonia an independent state. with
all due respect i asked parliament to suspend the declaration of independence so that's in the coming weeks we can undertake a dialogue. the speech that the president of catalonia made today is a speech of a person who does not know where he is and where he is going and with whom he wants to go the catalan regional government cannot display the results of the referendum because it was an illegal act or a fraudulent one and without the minimum guarantees it did take some time however for the castle and leader to eventually deliver his long anticipated speech.
one key player in the cattle and parliament the c.u. people spoke of betrayal and said it would suspend its parliamentary activity until the motion was adopted. it is that we will not return to any parliamentary activity until steps towards the implementation of republic. of ruling coalition the catalog government consist so four major parties however it's the support of the popular unity you kind of busy party that made it push for the independence referendum but it's not only the c u p party that's been good by the stalling many local have been outraged as well in fact thousands of people have been patiently awaiting what the
council and leader was going to say you can see here they were gathered over mistreats watching the big screen however the speech only deepen confusion with the local population about where the region now. given the kind of the main fear i think you should have declared independence because now she says she wants dialogue don't want to have asked the spanish government like seventeen times and every time the doors have been closed so i believe he would have finally declare it and then would be disappointed when he stated he didn't take a step forward that everybody wanted it we understand you want your style but catalonia has spoken and he wanted independence. and i want independence i don't want anything to deliver something my ancestors want to see but we are forced to the spanish or if i have a can say that my nationality is. very happy nothing will be under snow now following this highly anticipated speech here in barcelona that really the country as well as madrid and the rest of the european union were watching with bated
breath we have to keep in mind the pressure was quite high from madrid to make sure caps lonia doesn't go ahead with independence it well i say to people that they should be absolutely assured that the government is going to block any independence declaration that might be expressed. disagreed with the law but you cannot disobey the law if you disobey the law to become an outlaw it's going to be interesting to see how exactly what. was the number it was. nine ninety percent of the electorate that voted for catalonia to wave goodbye didn't support that here would now be reacting given this big breakthrough of independence didn't actually take place here many pro independence supporters couldn't hold back their emotions as the speech was being finally delivered with many seen crying some even scream as they vented their anger at the announced delay the e.u. parliament member stelios cool glue was an observer of the referendum he believes
the cattle and president has caved in to immense pressure. well i think that in the peers are more there's a very difficult. situation they've been you know a notice president of for awards both political parties are from. and also the european union but there's a financial presence to the make of these declaration about to develop this as a catalyst so i was expecting the kind of intervention in derivation which is not a cop and without this in there sort of he did a version of the cover to face this party state mother and mother it is much more a bottle full of the. government. the u.s. u.k. relationship has always been branded as special one after another american and british leaders made sure to stress how important and strong it warms however one
former adviser to barack obama has revealed it was seen as one big joke his police . repeat something long enough and people will believe it the relationship between america and britain will remain strong our relationship is a very special special relationship that exists between our two nations people forge friendships together that is what makes this relationship special i hope to have a good relationship with them he has been a special relationship it was very important for us to mention the special relationship in every press conference that we had when the u.k. were here but really we laughed about it behind the scenes nowadays on both sides of the pond the phrase special relationship is rarely outed without a generous dose of irony some say that you started with the bromance between these t.v. does something maybe that you some personal interest that you have in common maybe
in religion or somehow or to our newsmaker we both you call him toothpaste tony blair's support for the u.s. led invasion of iraq and him the unsavory nickname of bush's poodle america was less reciprocal in its loyalty though when bush's success so weighed in on the u.k.'s bragg's it referendum in twenty sixteen there might be a. u.k. u.s. trade agreement is not going to happen time soon and u.k. is going to be. in the back of the queue in a glossy magazine interview the same month barack obama gave david cameron a dressing down for his handling of the libyan intervention. i had more faith in the europeans given libya's proximity being invested in the follow up david cameron soon stopped paying attention becoming distracted by a range of other things twenty seventeen ushered in a new jew as the figureheads of the world's most famous long distance relationship
keen to prove it specialness to reason may was for us to visit the newly inaugurated donald trump q some awkward hand-holding and yet more talk of friendship we have one of the great bonds we pledge a lasting support to this most special relationship but according to reports donald trump's promise to prioritize a trade deal with the u.k. was broken just days later when the german chancellor angela merkel convinced him to deal with the e.u. first and just last month the u.s. didn't shy away from slapping heavy import tariffs on bomb body eight jets made in northern ireland after a complaint from u.s. company boeing and basically disappointed by this. is hugely important to northern ireland in terms of the jobs that term special relationship was immortalized by winston churchill but over seventy years down the line the rhetoric and the reality
don't seem to match and that makes it increasingly prone to ridicule in a particular special before it might have pain i think it's going to be sour and now everyone is like almost like going on their own way they'll do all they want to do regardless of what we want to do there are elements of fragments of what was once a special relationship in defense of risk and water and waters and depending on who's in charge of the two camps and it's very wide at the moment it's complicated. just on a quarter past the hour here in moscow it's all too international so in the mix of your stories tiny. iceland qualifies for the football world cup the first time in its history a story on a more intimate. with

tired of the war in afghanistan the world is sick and tired of the war in afghanistan and god knows the people of afghanistan who've been through a disastrous wars by the soviet union by their own warlords and by the united states and its allies have had more than enough but i don't think that the united states is making any clear moves to get out so has been islami experience everything that the us foreign policy cycle making its way from allies to enemies to allies again and goal of mine was just unfortunate enough to be captured during the organizations and in the face. it is a day of national pride for iceland for the country qualified for the world cup it's the first time in its history it's off to the team beat cause of to no. crowds across iceland celebrated the country booking its place in next year's
