12:16 pm
unrest in their countries and even more instability in the region there's agreement for more cooperation between their own is along with sharing more intelligence and deep terror operations both men had stern faces as they promised action but they weren't specifying what might happen. as far as we concerned iraq is one single country syria is one single country and we do not accept the geographical border changes in any way whatsoever we do not wish to exert this pressure but the wrong decisions made by some of the heads of the kurdish regional government need to be compensated for it would have. we correspond with the iraqi central government as far as we're concerned this referendum is illegitimate we have already taken certain steps but from this moment on which more decisive steps will be taken. turkey's army is in the third week of military
12:17 pm
exercises next to the only border crossing point into northern iraq a small number of iraqi troops joined in last week and they're still there iran has deployed tanks on its border and is also in gauged in joint exercises with iraq this is all intended to increase the pressure on the iraqi kurdish leadership the two presidents may have been short on detail in any further action they plan but that could be tactical they insist that iran turkey and the central government in iraq well act in unison. there appears to be a determination to cut off the iraqi kurdish leadership unless it really notices the referendum results in this isolation issue this content you know in political terms in economic terms and also in military terms and those are two straw that if we feel our south threatened. that then ankara can. be on the

12:19 pm
putin on the war in syria will top the agenda along with bilateral investment and stable i think while markets joining us on set you discuss this is it for him an associate professor in conflict management and humanitarian action at the doha answer to thank you very much and i understand you are freshly back from a trip to russia so you are absolutely the person for us to talk to thank you so what do you what kind of support is saadi looking for from russia well actually saudi arabia is looking for support from those on the front of all those i think number one could be syria where actually they both see that they need each other. and russia is expecting. to support for its political solution in syria and at the same time saudi arabia is expecting as a result of the support is to get some positions in the government future government for their allies in the opposition but more importantly i think is also
12:20 pm
the issue with the gulf crisis as part of the saudi foreign policy in the past four months has always been trying to get international support for its position in the gulf crisis against qatar and russia has largely stayed on the sidelines as it. did on the sideline and tried to be neutral and supporting a political solution russia is a capital where most goes a capital where is the support is very much needed from them and for that reason i think saudi arabia's trying to get some influence on that level and on the other hand i think also probably saudi arabia is sending a message to washington d.c. by making such a visit on the top level fears for. the message is that how dare he because be frustrated by not getting the support that was expecting from washington d.c.
12:21 pm
in the gulf crisis as we know the american position was has been actually split in terms of the. support to saudi arabia and the gulf and then president donald trump would say one thing and the state department would say something else so this frustrated saudi arabia because the absence of a unified strong position from washington d.c. as they thought they received it in the riyadh summit backward from donald trump that wasn't the case which led to weakening their position in the gulf crisis it could be then that saudi arabia is syndicate message that you know there are others that we can work with specially importantly is that. build an image for itself that support their autocratic allies there is a threat because and yes as has been the case in syria so russia has nor no problem supporting the bluejeans and when equally important reason i think that we should
12:22 pm
not miss in this conversation which is that i think the king of saudi arabia is trying to get some support also for his son. had been a man has the transition or the plans for the transition of power. under way to his or her son and his son needs the support needs the you know some support from these countries like russia and i think that would be one thing especially because that. man's plans all of the war in yemen is not going well the gulf crisis is not going very well either so at this moment i think i shall support for this transition i think could be also particularly helpful and could what could have would have it at this in the first place ok abraham. thank you very much. three u.s. special operations soldiers have been killed and two others injured in an attack and southwest of share a joint patrol with u.s.
