12:07 pm
central iraq and because people from other villages told them you need to move out because i mean it's going to crack down even that but this friend told them you need to get out of this village because the army is going to crack down so now this cooperates while i'm turning up the u.n. secretary general saying that the people from the. western region. i mean in the central region rather at risk being cracked down by the army right to this corroborate the story of the survivors now within the last two days at least twenty five thousand people crossed over to wagner that is not big accidents but they're still moving into bangladesh by hundreds on christie's going i'm sorry those who make it alive to bangladesh tanveer when when they arrive there what do they find nearly five hundred thousand people have fled rakhine state have the conditions on the ground in bangladesh improved at all in the last months for the people who've made it across the border. well if we look at the
12:08 pm
beginning of this month going through a really really bad i mean in that context it has improved reasonably well there is now penetration on hand to go for press what are their water tank but it's grossly inadequate for you know meeting requirements of the sheer number of refugees spread across in tech now they're isolated pockets of time they're part of a country deep inside the road not some of them have to walk ride my thing to the roadside to get relief so talking to the talking to the aid agency they told us that just the sheer number of people here what they have in their hand is just not enough to meet their requirements even on a temporary basis there has to be a long term solution and more aid needs to be flown from international flight to help one of the cope with a major disaster in a friend of a chantry life in cox's bazar in bangladesh thank you very much for that time there in other world news i saw has released an audio recording it says is from its

12:10 pm
a long term political solution under the aegis of the united nations was up with al-jazeera as andrew symonds has more now from ankara it wasn't a long briefing but judging from what the two presidents had to say there were no major fallouts but no major breakthroughs either they discussed syria they discussed earlier start a process for deescalation zones primarily because this involves turkey more than any other country to try to get access to the opposition groups and corporation there will be military observers put on the ground there but no real date was given of any progress on this lot of mir putin said what a difficult situation it was but he believed in the deescalation and said that it was the political process that was essential now under the auspices of the united nations but no indication of progress but as far as the syria peace process no
12:11 pm
breakthrough no major disagreement it would seem. during the joint news conference turkey's president again condemned the referendum in the kurdish region of northern iraq which has voted to separate you from. the region is becoming more and more fragile the referendum has no legitimacy in terms of international law unfortunately the regional government despite all the friendly warnings has made a huge mistake by holding this referendum as we have always mentioned they have no right to increase tensions in the region for their personal and regional interests . while tension has been rising in the region since the referendum vote all foreign flights to and from erbil in the kurdish region will be suspended from friday evening after an order by iraq's central government in baghdad let's go live to hold abdul hamid who is live from the airport in erbil how to tell us about the situation there what's the scene like. well at the moment the flights are arriving
12:12 pm
and departing as scheduled. all international be suspended from fifteen hundred g.m.t. which is six o'clock local now we do only flight that has been suspended is the one from tehran iran having closed the airspace for all flights to and from the kurdish region since the day the referendum took place there we did see some people leaving earlier than predicted especially people from the kurdish diaspora who had come here to take part in the referendum to witness what they call a historical day many of them said they had to cut short their time here with their families because they were worried that the only way out of here would be transiting through baghdad and some said that as kurds they didn't feel very safe to do that at the moment tremendous pressure on the kurdish regional government from the central government in baghdad of course but also from the regional powers
12:13 pm
iran and turkey we've heard a lot of threats from the turks notably as far as their dealings with the kurdish regional government how are they reacting to all this the kurdish regional government one of the saying what's the next move likely to be. well they actually did meet for a very long time yesterday and at the end of that came out a statement saying that they actually refuted any move coming out of baghdad if you recall two days ago the parliament had issued a twelve point statement with demands from the kurdish regional government including for example all foreign missions to be closed here to hand over the airports not only their bill one but the one. and another set of steps to be taken when the kurdistan regional government said that they were they were a few. uncles situation. move saying that according judical situation this
12:14 pm
region does enjoy a certain degree of autonomy and the federal government government has no right to interfere in the domestic affairs of the kurdish region so do you see more defiance and that's what we've been seeing since before the referendum on september twenty fifth basically all the statements coming from both sides are you can feel that no one is backing down and for the real for the kurds it would be extremely difficult that would be a very unpopular move and many people here would tell you we did expect there will be an uproar in baghdad one in iran in turkey this is something they expected even though everybody is a bit nervous thank you very much for that hoda abdel-hamid live for us you know bill in northern iraq. still ahead on al jazeera the pressure grows on over its nuclear program or its north korean businesses in china to shop by the end of the year. and the land down under decides to liftoff australia announces plans to own space agency we'll tell you more.
