results iraqi kurds have voted to secede and baghdad and uncorrect show their displeasure with more threats. president trump now says he'll go to puerto rico after being criticized for his lack of empathy for the millions suffering from the effects of hurricane maria. changing gears saudi arabia will allow women to drive for the first time from next year plus how a child's discovery has revealed a brand new work by one of the world's most popular authors more than a century after his death. but let's up with that controversial referendum in iraq's region of kurdistan the prime minister hyderabadi has warned credit officials not to declare independence after monday's vote in which more than eighty percent supported secession from iraq
2:02 am
but mr about he says he won't allow the country to be divided charles structured has a report from a bill. when the rhetoric and threats continue and from both sides iraq to me is that at that i still is still occupying some parts of kirkuk and some parts of iraq i still is still a threat to the cities with some of our brothers in iraqi kurdistan a living we must not divide iraq according to or through all viral referendum that is completely rejected such language will go down well with the international community including the u.s. and the e.u. each sent the timing of the vote could weaken iraq's unity at a time when the fight against terrorism is paramount. ela bhatt he says the kurdish referendum on independence was unconstitutional and the federal government will ignore the expected yes result only a few minutes after all about his speech the kayleigh g president appeared on
2:03 am
kurdish television masoud barzani invited leaders of neighboring countries for dialogue but he remained defiant he said the wishes of iraq's kurds should be respected but. yes in the beginning we agreed on the constitution and partnership and the role of the kurdistan region in the establishment of iraq is very clear but you violated every agreement there is no need for anger and threats you have only yourself to blame the results of the referendum on not binding but the kurdish president wants a mandate to push the bank dad government into negotiations towards independence for iraq's kurds neighboring countries such as turkey fearful of the effect such a drive towards independence by the iraqi kurds could have on their own large kurdish populations have threatened sanctions and even not ruled out military intervention against the kayleigh gee. that seems unlikely at this stage but the
2:04 am
referendum is certainly increased tensions across the region already struggling to deal with so many problems and when the battle against terrorism is far from won. our let's go live now to charles who's in the capital of iraqi kurdistan and as we get to the preliminary results it sounds like an overwhelming yes fate as far as the region's kurdish population is but baghdad getting even more frustrated with that and and raising the temperature somewhat and asking for the kurds to hand over control of their border crossings and a lot more. but royale the baghdad government certainly ratcheting up the. the pressure on the k r g here on the masoud barzani the baghdad government saying that the k r g.-o.
2:05 am
sorties have until friday evening to hand over control of the airports in the k r g all potentially face an international area and the government also saying that kayla geo sources should hand over control of their land borders their international land borders also by friday all neighboring countries would be invited to take control from them as well a big indication of just how much pressure is being put on the k r g i mean the build up to this it has been steadily getting worse it was only yesterday that following meetings with military officials the prime minister. said that those held responsible for causing what he described as chaos in this region would be held responsible i mean pretty much a blatant finger being pointed at masoud barzani. as well of course the
2:06 am
kurds say and barzani says himself that they have a right to hold this held this referendum they say they feel very let down by the country p.t. promises made by the baghdad government towards negotiating a potential independence and you know they are staunchly defending their position and as you heard in that report there barzani saying that they will not take threats lightly but at the same time calling the international players regional players and body here in a bill for dialogue that seems and at this stage fairly unlikely. and charles what baghdad is particularly upset about of course is is the inclusion in this referendum of disputed territory particularly cook which is still up for the up for debate as to who really has control of it and it's very profitable oil
2:07 am
fields. well look at all of it is the peshmerga i mean they took control of kirkuk after the baghdad military. basically turned left following an offensive by eisel in two thousand and fourteen i mean the kurds many kurds describe kirkuk as being their jerusalem it's disputed and cook along with a vast area outside the official boundary of where the k r g is voted in this referendum around two million people in that area were legible to take part in this referendum which only added sort of fuel to the fire which only further angered baghdad said that this referendum was unconstitutional in the first place and it is potentially a real hot spot as well as we expect to see results coming through in the next what we believe the next twenty four hours or so official results they have been veiled
2:08 am
threats by some of the show the shabby the shia militia groups there that. we understand are on the outskirts of that city and of course it's hugely important as well that area because the fight against leisel continues as well and you know as much as. he describes the importance of unity in this crisis he knows that he has the backing of the international community that were also very much against the timing of this nonbinding referendum so with that kind of backing he knows that he can keep putting the pressure on the k r g and president barzani here and i will all right thank you very much for that live in. well as child was saying many of the neighboring countries a supposing baghdad in this particular issue wrong francis is valid to stand with iraq and against the outcome of this referendum the government says it's installed
2:09 am
new missile systems close to its border with kurdish areas whilst turkey is threatening sanctions we have this report now from andrew simmons in on the 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 this 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
2:10 am
kurdish leadership is being accused of treason by turkey's president. can alter their colors yes they will be left in the lurch when we start imposing our sanctions will be over when we close the oil taps or the revenues will vanish and they will not be able to find food and clothes when our truck stop going into northern iraq these are the trucks he mentions hardball 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 shonda obvious now there is tension in the northern iraq really needs turkey
2:11 am
in my view turkey also needs northern iraq because of domestic and regional issues this bridge of friendship and trade shouldn't 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 on the turkish iraqi border well. professor at nottingham university he joins us live from london thank you for talking to us and given that so much opprobrium has fallen upon massoud barzani as
2:12 am
a consequence of holding this referendum and it's non-binding the result and there's not going to be independence within the foreseeable future why has he gone this route was he actually held it. well you know very little choice of the kurdish people everywhere at once as you know are in syria and in iran too as well as in turkey but want to live they consider themselves to be. the longs nation in thinking that a spirit and this is something that is generation present. the current generation twenty years ago in years ago when the. u.s. raided iraq says to the u.s. invasion in the hope that this would leave independence well it didn't now i think they feel that this is the public at least feels this is their last chance will or
2:13 am
weak government in iraq i mean will provide security for most of the country very heavily dependent on external oh and with the fact that the. kurds have caught on. dilution isis in mosul in the areas they feel politically and militarily vested in an independence yes but. as you've alluded to the fact is that. iraqi kurdistan in the north of iraq cannot exist can it really without the cross border trade that we've already mentioned with turkey amounting at about five billion dollars in the first half of this year so if you are set ankara and if they close off the pipeline with the oil and they stop their trucks coming through with
2:14 am
supplies for you that's it and a story so why would he take such a risky course of action. wrote. he's got what you've done in the other side of the calling of this perceived strength is the fact that there are people who now is against the side here of an independent state so he basically i think had very little choice but to respond with the referendum i think he believes that he can negotiate some sort of. to go independent. entity some grease or irrigation and then hours and of money and so on but in the end what he's done my thinking is. make a calculation which may well go against him because if he doesn't deliver on our independence now i think he's going to lose support with people or what he might do
2:15 am
is present this as a conspiracy by the world against then. championing the cause it doesn't look like he will be able to deliver on. some. amount of suffering through conflict through sanctions the means. thank you very much indeed now the seti people have been killed in a u.s. led coalition air strike in the syrian city of raka the alliance is trying to drive eisel out of the city which fell to the group in twenty fourteen. president trump has announced he'll go to the u.s. territory of puerto rican next she's say he also gave details of the government's increased assistance to the three and a half million people who remain stranded on the island which was devastated by hurricane maria she have a tansey reports. widespread shortages and desperation now being reported across

2:17 am
he'd spoken to president trump this was his response when asked whether he thought the president cared about his territory i am confident that he does and i fully expect his support. this effort he has. made that clear to me personally personally so you know and again i want to thank him for acting quickly and some of these things over there also specials that the u.s. is priorities are not just humanitarian work to rico is massively in debt to wall street and don't trust monday night tweets appeared to reassure the bankers that no debts would be forgiven despite the disaster much of the island was destroyed with billions of dollars owed to wall street and the banks which sadly must be dealt with he tweeted in addition questions are being raised as to why the hundred year old jones act isn't being lifted under the u.s. ships and crews can dock in puerto rico with supplies which is long meant of the price of goods here. is far higher than on the mainland this also means neighboring

2:19 am
a member of the arab center of studies and a professor at george mason university he joins us live now from washington d.c. the question has to be why. i think there are three main factors of this royal decree to grant saudi women the right to drive their cars strategic political and demographic it looks like it is a one time move by crown prince mohammed and to position himself as the leader of modernity and to win the battle against the will have be and the the clones of several traditions and conformity with values and institutions it is also a step forward to open up saudi society and to also to give the impression that there is this more than that is part of the new century of arabia there is also
2:20 am
the demographic pressure on the we should conserve the half of the population and so there really are and twenty five of them there is a majority of women and it is also for the process of saudis ation by encouraging women to be working for us that are in the public or the private sector so we've got a full course of that all these three elements we can understand why this move has been and just two days ago there was another decision to open the way for saudi women to sports events and to go to stadiums so this is an open in the it is now conform and it is a world of modernisation and also catching up with the rest of the world so this is part of the vision the twenty thirty vision then that is that is being promulgated primarily by the new crown prince can we expect therefore for saudi women in this
2:21 am
particular instance to to get more rights to get more equality to become more a part of the of the economic workforce. well there is a general rule and social change it's always forward it's always dynamic however i am not really comfortable with the idea that if the decree is issued now saudi women have to wait for nine months to be given the driving license and so there is this process that is partly administrative and the other one is more of how to convince religious clerics that women would not suffer and get ovaries while driving their cars so the time in the open window it's too long number two i would argue that yes this is the last spring reality that is
2:22 am
imposing itself on the golf that is bringing in more resistance against tradition and i think there are women who are now happy to see that they have. defied the those that clearly that has been. preventing them from being and you know living like the rest of women in the world so we have to expect certain but a little bit when this move of modernity and the focus of resistance in the name of safeguard in our society and our cultural values and the name of saudi arabia as a unique or an exceptional islamic society mohamed calley thank you very much. we've got a lot more to come on this al-jazeera news hour including too slow to inefficient the french president emanuel mccraw outlines his vision for transforming the european union plus. find out
