hello i'm maryanne demasi oh watching al-jazeera live from london also coming up israeli forces raid the home of a palestinian man who was shot dead three of the security forces in the occupied west bank. u.s. president announces he'll be visiting hurricane hit puerto rico but not before sparking controversy over its financial debt. and spain's government sends thousands of police reinforcements into catalonia orders to block a planned vote on independence. and though our top story this hour iraqi kurdish leader massoud barzani has said that the yes vote has won has won monday's on monday referendum on secession he said iraq central government in baghdad should now engage in serious dialogue instead of threatening sanctions but he also called for calm when the official result is announced. we should all step out of our political shoes
and i ask you all i also all the sisters and brothers when the results of the referendum is announced to behave in a civil manner and express their love and not to fire a shot so that we don't affect that piece. earlier iraq's prime minister body had one kurdish officials against declaring independence according to early results eighty eight percent of voters support secession from iraq but a body says he won't allow the country to be divided or not. as a matter there are those who want to plunges into an internal crisis and to divide iraq through a referendum which is unlawful and unconstitutional i want the consequences of this referendum will have a negative impact on the kurdish area and the region as a whole and a negative impact on all citizens. the federal government of iraq will do whatever it takes and we will need to be quite united news for god according to the constitution we have to protect our citizens. strafford sent us this update from
our bill in northern iraq. it was only a few minutes after a speech given by prime minister hydrilla body concerning this ongoing crisis regarding the what he describes as the unconstitutional referendum held in the k r g that we had a reply from the president of this region masoud barzani in a statement he said that the wishes of the people of this region should be respected not only by the baghdad government but by regional countries he said. were not the solution and he invited members of the baghdad government and neighboring countries to come to a bill for discussions to try and negotiate some sort of solution to this crisis meanwhile more threats from the baghdad government the cabinet saying that the k r g have three days to hand over control of their international airports here
or they will face an international air in bargo we understand that domestic flights will continue it's highly unlikely we understand that the k r g will agree to these threats also the cabinet saying that again the k r g have three days to hand over control to border crossings land border crossings or neighboring countries will be invited to take control of those border crossings themselves so yet again we're seeing an escalation of the rhetoric from the baghdad government from neighboring countries replies by the k r g of sorties here the crisis continues and the situation does seem to be escalating the regional anger results and mounting of the monday's vote iran says it sending new missile equipment to its border with iraq while takis president is threatening sanctions that's causing concern among some businessmen anderson is reports now from on the turkey iraq border.
two flags now turkey and iraq on a battlefield and sends out a daily message it's addressed to iraqi kurds as they celebrated the referendum on the other side of the border these iraqi government troops were flown in to join the exercise. this exercise conveniently perhaps situated right beside the main border crossing road between turkey and iraq really hasn't got a great deal of military significance it carries yet another political message to the iraqi kurds. the reason is that alongside the tank charges the political attacks coming from turkey are in line with the iraqi government's sentiment. the kurdish leadership is being accused of treason by turkish president. yes they'll be left in the lurch when we start imposing our sanctions will be over
when we close the oil or the revenues will vanish and they will not be able to find food and clothes will our truck stop going into northern iraq. these are the trucks he mentioned up all the only border crossing from turkey into northern iraq is one of the largest in the world for trade it's worth more than eight and a quarter billion dollars of business a year to turkey if it closes it will be catastrophic for iraqi kurds it's estimated turkey supplies nearly seventy percent of their imported goods. nihad billy schick is a businessman dealing in exports he's a turkish kurd and he's anxious he says the situation could hurt both kurds and turks shanda obvious now there is tension in the northern iraq really needs turkey in my view turkey also needs northern iraq because of domestic and other regional issues in a bridge of friendship and trade should be destroyed on the contrary it should be
reinforced. irwin's other threat is blocking kurdish oil exports shutting off a pipeline in which up to six hundred thousand barrels worth of oil a day flows through turkey the threats are being repeated with no action so far apart from simulated combat on the border it's holding back is aimed at pressuring the iraqi kurds into some sort of u. turn it's hard to see that happening for now while armies make new alliances there is uncertainty and drew simmons al-jazeera war on the turkish iraqi border. now israeli forces have raided the home of a palestinian gunman who opened fire at the entrance of a jewish settlement in the occupied west bank killed three israeli security officers and wounded another before being shot dead how

pressure. it tackles coincided with the latest. is it to the region by us and really jason green black his talks with each side now likely to be made more complex by this latest outbreak of violence ari forces out of syria in the occupied west bank. u.s. president donald trump says he'll fly to puerto rico next week as the caribbean island struggles to recover from hurricane maria. five days after the category four storm ripped through the u.s. territory most of its three point four million residents are still without power roads are clogged with deborah and communications haven't been fully restored many people are still without adequate food water and fuel supermarkets are running out of supplies but it's not just the shops some pharmacies are now saying best stocks will run out in less than a week medical facilities are getting overwhelmed with the number of patients hundreds of terrorists have been able to leave experts say it will take months and tens of billions of dollars to fix the main airport the
president donald trump says puerto rico is in deep trouble because it knows billions of dollars to banks on wall street is also praised his government's efforts to help florida and texas which have been hit by hurricanes as well and insists that puerto rico will get similar support. what are we going to do a lot of money i'm going to puerto rico on tuesday scheduled trip that's the earliest i can go because of the first responders that we don't want to disrupt the relief efforts you know we're going to a lot we've got great places like texas and florida and we will also on puerto rico but the difference is this is an island sitting in the middle of an ocean and it's a big ocean. the united states has announced new sanctions against north korea including twenty six individuals and nine banks some with ties to china north korean nationals in china russia libya and dubai have also been targeted the north korean delegation is arrived in russia raising expectations that moscow may be

that it will try to use its political and economic leverage with north korea to try and diffuse the situation perhaps dangle some incentives in front of them like gas contracts already grayling's or perhaps increasing the number of north koreans allowed to work in russia basically things that might help the north korean economy and try to persuade them to back away from the march to war and watching out as they are still to come we our young ranger children have escaped war in the end my dealing with their traumatic experiences. and tens of thousands of people leave the island of bali is indonesia was an eruption of the mt agang volcano is imminent.

a major changes to the european union he wants the eurozone to have its own finance minister and he wants to see more cooperation on everything from the integration of refugees to defense and reports from paris. unless the european union is reformed its very existence could be threatened the message from the french president in a speech should sorbonne university emanuel markhor set out his vision for overhauling the block and says only change will stop growing euro skepticism and the rise of anti e.u. parties maybe. this idea that you can flourish has not disappeared even though it's fragile globalization has had an impact we need to confront ideas which pretend to be new solutions such as not using protectionism segregation these ideas have so many times before threatened europe they pretend to be legitimate because they exploit people's fears for too long with north their power. macross
said issues such as security refugees and globalization have divided europeans and brigs it's been a challenge to reverse the trend he called for more e.u. collaboration in defense migration and education but the focus of his reforms is the eurozone is calling for the creation of a euro zone budget and ministry to finance current projects such as infrastructure from i call the u. vision to become a reality who needs the support of other new leaders and in particular germany it's why he's delivering the speech just two days after the german election he wants his reforms to be firmly on the agenda as chancellor angela merkel begins our coalition talks merkel shares micros desire to reform europe she's open to a small eurozone budget and a ministry but who she ponders with in the new german coalition government will determine how far she can go the liberal f.d.p.
party opposes the french president's agenda saying it lead to germany bailing out weaker countries from a cross perspective on euro zone reform. the liberals are quite skeptical on a lot of the issues that he wants to reform so they will be a more difficult partner on the other hand we have the green party who is strong here probably european a bit more left leaning closer to my home maybe on that front as well and they could counterbalance to a certain extent the liberals and germany. outside the sawbones students protested against some of my close domestic reforms saying he's ignoring poorest sections of french society a reminder that like the german chancellor the french president still has much work ahead if he is to convince those at home and abroad that his ideas are in their common interest with al-jazeera powers. and spanish government has sent thousands
