2:04 pm
were going to go to american say i saw was not completely destroyed in syria but we can now see that the u.s. are not interested in the territorial integrity of syria it announced a new initiative yesterday and they would like to support the democratic forces of syria and as the one of border security which would mean cutting off large territories around turkey's border this is a difficult area where there is tension between kurds and arabs these territories would be controlled by armed oppositions and u.s. forces it would be very difficult to split syria such an approach is taking place without a u.n. resolution or negotiations in geneva russia iran and turkey expect clarifications from the u.s. . small from moscow. well since the beginning of the syrian conflict is one thing that is united pretty much all of the countries involved in one way or another in the war is their belief but at least publicly stated that the territorial integrity of syria has to be maintained well what we have heard out of turkey and
2:05 pm
moscow today suggests that both those countries are losing faith with the united states is being honest so that intention sergey lavrov said that he thought this plan for a border security force was a centrally the united states trying to partition syria in some way lavrov also went on to big up russia's involvement in the various parts of the dialogue process that are going on at the moment particularly asked on which he says is really helps in de conflicts to some extent the syrian war he also said that the. dialogue congress that's supposed to be happening in sochi in russia later on in the month he said that this would bring together groups involved in the syrian crisis going to being excluded from the geneva process
2:06 pm
bring them into the fold and he says this would actually help the geneva process move forward essentially giving the in the united nations as he put it kind of a kick up the backside well as we heard the u.s. move to take a shangri about american support for kurdish dominated forces in syria and president receptive to one of turkey has announced a new offensive against the kurds but in a hold has more. to kish president today chip tayyip erdogan and using a party address to look staunch in the face of the u.s. backed could use force on his southern border. he promised to respond with a show of force saying tikki will launch its own military operation and the northern syrian city of buffeting not so so the letter was ginned just like we do not let the kurdistan workers party or p.k. open their eyes within our borders we are determined to vanquish them on the other
2:07 pm
side of fall border god willing in the coming days we will continue the operation to purge our southern border from terror. tikki has fought kiddish factions within its borders for more than thirty years and doesn't want to see that could gain power in neighboring syria the u.s. and the european union say the p.k. k. is a terror group but in northern syria the americans say they're supporting kurdish forces not the p.k. k. specifically the kurds are the most effective fighting force against the islamic state in syria and they've been very successful in that that's the american purpose but the turks regard the kurds and the why b.g. as a dire threat to u.s. president trump promised iran that he would stop being and training could fight is but the pentagon never made that official now turkey is furious about reports of a new u.s. backed border force of thirty thousand personnel with the syrian democratic forces
2:08 pm
a group of largely controlled by the could ish y.p. gee they will reportedly deploy along the border of turkey iraq to the southeast and the euphrates river valley the dividing line with assad's military how the american backed could just wipe e.g. posted this online in december the posting to show clashes with turkish forces it's enough rain in northern syria the same could. be one now says he will launch a military operation in the coming days we'll get there are many kyler despite it all we believe we have common interests with america in the region and hope we can act in concert because the time has come to support turkey and the time to give strategical peroration is due. afrin could be the test for a difficult three way relationship between powers in the syrian war. the united states and the kurdish fight is so hated by one side and supported by the other
2:09 pm
medium the hand. orson casilla is our correspondent in attacking turkey's border with syria it seems that turkey has a war on two fronts to a certain extent it's trying to deal with both russia and syria in the airstrikes on internally displaced people in those deescalation zones and now this new front with the united states and its support for kurdish fighters in the north of the country what are its options and its possibilities. so hell yes the possibility of a military operation in often was kind of weak at the beginning when president add on started stating this like about a year ago but now we see that turkey has also backed from russia and also the syrian regime agrees the same reviews over the security forces stationing in syria iraq and turkey iraq war do from turkish perspective i can say
2:10 pm
that despite united states claims that they are trying to provide security and stop the illegal infiltration of the radical insurgencies to the area turkey takes it as perceives it as a threat because turkey believes that the white p.g. is an offshoot of p.k. k. could to some workers party as we have watched in our news package and it sees it as a national security risk and a threat to its territorial integrity but here some other questions come up. to us which are turkey and united states have been nato allies and they have had strategic partnership in the region for such a long time but now the question is whether turkey is drifting apart from its partner united states and aligning with russia iran axis or is this problem going
2:11 pm
to be sold but right away i'm assuming last minute not of cations from turkish local media that prisons are down this current the giving harsh statements against the us the solution for stationing those forces and it is for sure that turkey sees the us the solution as you know later elliptic and and a person is that as a threat to itself as a threat showing that you can't do any operation against often without our permission these these couple of days will be very high. in terms of this topic but presents are gone state of the a survey that in the couple in the coming days probably this week that this military would launch an operation in our friend but we will see whether russia turkey and united states will be able to negotiate around the table and agree on a common point to call and come up to a consensus or will these strong strategic partners will drift apart from each
2:12 pm
other well so to keep an eye on things for the moment said and possibly day in and tell you thank you. well elsewhere in syria government forces say they're close to taking control of a strategically important base in italy a province they've been fighting for against a number of armed groups included hired the sham which used to be affiliated with al qaida government commanders say that they're now advancing on the base from several positions. they say they've now taken control of more than four hundred square kilometers over the countryside near the border with ip. now a walkway has collapsed inside indonesia's stock exchange building in jakarta causing widespread panic and injuries glass and other day be crushed down on to people in the lobby at least seventy five people were taken to hospital our correspondence that vasant is outside the stock exchange. many here are still shocked that this collapse could take place here in the financial heart. in the
