2:04 pm
border and into northern iraq that border post could be shot but the action hasn't been taken is he leaving some space open for a subset of deal very hard to imagine that now that there's such a convincing victory in this of this unrecognized referendum he also accused the bizarre any and the whole leadership of going into a very dangerous area now and it has to be said that there's a lot of symbolism here because you have this exercise going on full pelt it is very much for the cameras there's no doubt about that it is set to give a message to the kurdish leadership in the case it hadn't already got it that is that is now including at least thirty iraqi troops here they joined early in the morning and they've been involved in exercises taking a break now but it's all can. fine to this area in military terms i wouldn't of
2:05 pm
thought it means much but politically quite a lot and as far as the threats that you were talking about there the turkey was making before the referendum on monday and have any of them been put into practice to put into place. well no is the honest answer there is there is some in the in the terms of diplomatic efforts in terms of plans yes they're moving towards some sanctions it would seem but no in terms of announcement no the turkish government says that it's still considering exactly how to roll out its measures and the only action we've actually seen is the cutting off of kurdish t.v. channels from from satellite but that's all really we've seen in terms of economic measures no military measures we've got that these exercises still going on which started more than a week ago and are many thanks indeed anderson once they're on the turkey iraq

envoy to the middle east jason green is here trying to restore momentum to donald trump's efforts to get the peace process underway again the israeli deputy foreign minister has said that this is a welcome for him and it shows the difficulty of trying to seek peace with the palestinians the palestinians of course say there are all sorts of israeli roadblocks that are. impeding the progress towards peace opposition supporters in kenya protesting against the country's election commission they say it's biased in favor of president to go to kenya asses ruling party the supreme court had invalidated kenya as his victory in presidential elections in august but opposition leader. says that he'll boy. unless the government responds to his demands including the second of some electoral commission stuff. stephanie deca is that before we get into the nitty gritty of what this is all about stephanie tell us what's been going on today for.
2:09 pm
sure commissioner. groups of supporters of. either from behind this or the side of this it is a sort of approach to this area the police here large presence now but they are here in large numbers will push the water. of course dispersing. pretty quickly and then they will come around and it happens all over again the numbers aren't huge but it is the message this is going to go all through this movement the need to get work and i think even though we've. got the same message one along that he wants reforms within this building commission otherwise we're going to go to elections because what the opposition says is that if they don't reform they've. looked at the
2:10 pm
issues they fix certain things and importantly looking forward to wednesday there will be a meeting between all sides commission to decide how to move for two weeks only to be made so what's the opposition's beef with the electoral commission they say it's biased in favor of the ruling party. yes to simplify what is quite complicated the opposition has issues with the electoral commission the president's party has issues with the supreme court when all these elections they say they are you know their election was stolen. by basically say the same thing the beef that the opposition has is that they're saying the people in charge need to go they botched it up there needs to be change systems the company in charge of that needs to be changed because there were issues when it came to the electronic transmission system it's complicated it is a war of words these politicians insult each other back and forth. to each other back and forth and the danger here is that people in kenya are political and it
2:11 pm
really it comes down to tribe it is person against person against your man and they have the capacity to mobilize and reach situation on the street we're not seeing any tension really at the moment it is calm but just what you're seeing today is something that they can just switch on and off the night is the fear a lot of people will tell you these are uncertain times it's unprecedented times and the language of the politicians are using is not something that they say is very reassuring but many thanks dave stephanie deca live in nairobi. the u.s. russia and china have all weighed enough to the north korean foreign minister's comments on monday real hole had accused president donald trump of having declared war on north korea russia says that using sanctions against the north is a strategy that's almost exhausted china for its part says that they'll be no winners in any war in the korean peninsula and the u.s.
2:12 pm
dismissed the accusations from north korea's foreign minister as absurd but u.s. defense secretary james mattis says that america wants to solve the crisis diplomatically rory chalons has more from us for us now on the russian response from moscow. although russia's foreign ministry has just revealed that it is in gazed in behind the scenes diplomatic activities try and calm tensions on the korean peninsula at the moment they're not saying what that activity constitutes the russian position at the moment is that it believes that sanctions are essentially running out of steam it has voted for sanctions twice recently in the u.n. security council but i don't think it's going to go any further and also russia believes the conflicts on the korean peninsula will be absolutely catastrophic i think it's clear that moscow's position is that donald trump is being irresponsible in the language that he's using at the moment and ratcheting up tensions so what smites
2:13 pm
russia be able to do to calm the situation down well actually russia does have fairly good economic and to some degree political relations with pyongyang and it could use these if it wanted to so perhaps it believes that the carrots is the best way forward rather than the stick that mr trump seems to favor if you read people like dmitri trenin who is the head of the carnegie center here in moscow he thinks that perhaps moscow could persuade north korea not necessary to give up its nuclear weapons because that's unlikely to happen but i'm a piece of the said that the north koreans would eat grass before gave up its nukes but more that moscow to put could persuade to put into place some kind of strategic reserve restraint and it could do that by offering its economic sweeteners it could
2:14 pm
maybe do gas deals with north korea or it could maybe. restore rail links and also boost the number of north korean workers who are currently working in russia things that could add. she helped the north korean economy and persuade yang that the march to war is not in anyone's best interests a weather update next here on al-jazeera then. the play is going to be are. going to sellout crowd in arizona dallas cowboys meal in unison for that game with the arizona cardinals as n.f.l. players continue to react to controversial comments by president obama plus. the push to get rid of the plants that produce cocaine by colombian farmers remain suspicious.
2:15 pm
hello again it's been raining particularly heavily recently in shanghai live in a month's worth of rain in a day where much of the bright top has gone away now doesn't mean the rain is completely over the next system is moving and i think the two when i'm out going to eat will generate a fair amount of rain just maybe north of shanghai and heading towards south korea and south and japan that given the amount of potential this is got the potential for floods has to be thought about least flashdance briefly and a wet day is a minimum a promise the whole lot consolidates and news through to give you rather wet day in tokyo to thaw by thursday but dry behind that may not include shanghai again the potential for rain still exists as dry by this time in beijing for the science it's a largely dry picture to get right to the border to vietnam and even here the feet of the most weather is just giving an occasional shout of the tension between the two who is there in thirty five hong kong that's still quite warm fourteen fuji's
2:16 pm
really quite surprising that will come down i suspect of the next day or so to run about where it should be about thirty one mark and then as the line of rain that was through shanghai stretching back to us to sichuan generally and again the potential for rain in that line is quite heavy it's heading slowly size but it's moving to slow enough that significant rain will fall. russian filmmaker andrina christoph explores had russia impacts the very values of the nation the russians are famous of a cultural legacy but can tradition and conservative be the source of stagnation and authoritarian why was i was the assume aided by the police but you issues ukraine's homosexuality the significance of book into the russian elite is that he was like a fake you who controls the cobra in such a putin's russia at this time on al-jazeera.

2:19 pm
proper negotiations if you like. in brussels at the moment that's where michelle is meeting his british counterpart david davis. what the british have always hoped is that they will achieve more success in bilateral conversations with european heads of state and don't forget that donald tusk represents and that might be an easier way to make progress i think they've been somewhat frustrated in that hope until now the europeans have been fairly consistent in saying michel barnier is the point man and the progress has to take place in brussels so will these meetings bearing in mind this latest round of negotiations currently underway. and the floor of speech be enough to break this deadlock in the talks. well. we'll have to see a flurry of movement behind me there. the british think that they they held
2:20 pm
something out in the florence talks they are saying now publicly that they believe that no other european union countries should have to pay more into the budget or should suffer as a result financially of breaks it so there is an implicit promise that the british will carry on paying money there at least until twenty twenty they were also more explicit about the rights of e.u. citizens here in the u.k. don't forget that such a contentious issue some three million people they didn't say much having said that on the irish question another very sensitive issue and the europeans have always maintained that intil those issues are really dealt with ireland citizens and the budget then the british desire to start talking about the future relationship by which i mean trade is just not on the table what reason they will be hoping rather desperately is that she has achieved some sort of momentum and the british and the
2:21 pm
europeans can start talking about trade just have to wait and see but of the many thanks live in central london. u.s. president tunnel trump's row with the national football league no sign of ending f l players coaches and even some owners have joined in protest against the president's attack on plas who doubts during the national anthem reynolds reports. president donald trump's feud with professional american football players moved from stadiums on sunday to the u.s. capitol on monday to step what he said about these men. and what they are doing these mostly like men but also when. they use the term. as the being. is beneath. should be the need the mits of the president of the united states of america the dispute began last year when san francisco quarterback collin capper nick initially refused to stand while the
