8:06 pm
chemical attack in syria there was the possibility the very real possibility of a significant military entanglement between the united states and russia in syria now lavrov of. de mistura i think both quite grateful that didn't happen de mistura was pointing to the success of the de confliction lines being used between the militaries of those two countries saying that those works and he hopes they continue to work but you get the sense from de mistura and i think he put it fairly bluntly there that he wants the page to be turned are on the duma incident the chemical incident so that they can start talking about peace in syria properly once again but i have to say that it's quite hard to see if the circumstances are right for that to happen now or they there's been a long time since geneva last made any significant progress and we now have a situation where there are of course yet again credible accounts of chemical
8:07 pm
weapons being used in syria we have the geopolitical tension being pretty high at the moment between the united states and russia and we also have a situation in syria where russia the united states turkey and iran are all vying for territorial spears of influence there so getting all of these different factions around the table working towards a long it's a settlement for syria looks as hard now as it has ever be him. inside syria rebels have abandoned the pocket of land northeast of damascus under an evacuation deal it's believed all members of the group known as the army of islam have now left the area of do mair and the nearby calamine rebels have agreed to lay down arms it's expected they'll begin leaving within days said horta reports from beirut in
8:08 pm
neighboring lebanon. so its allies regaining control of more territory from the opposition the town of demand is no back under state control after the rebels lay down their arms and agreed to be evacuated to the north of the country to other rebel controlled territories in the north of the country the remaining rebel factions in the eastern caliban enclave have also agreed to surrender without a fight there was the threat of military action and this is what the government has been doing it was using the strength of military action to bring about a surrender in this eastern caliban enclave being really strategic for the government because it lies along the main highway between to mask this and baghdad the government is using this tactic as well with the with the rebels in the countryside of homes in the northern countryside of homs telling them you can face what the rebels of eastern water faced if you don't agree to lay down your arms there is a ceasefire in place and negotiations are set to continue on sunday but i still but
8:09 pm
talks with i still have collapsed eisel of course controlling a pocket of territory in southern in southern to masochists i still refusing to evacuate and leave to the east of the country to the bad the desert and so the army and its allies have begun a battle to recapture that territory so the syrian government pushing ahead with the with its military option really the way it wants to solve this crisis by crushing the rebellion in recapturing territory from the rebels instead of engaging in any political process the heir to the british throne prince charles is to succeed queen elizabeth as head of the commonwealth in a one comes after talks between the ages of the fifty three member states which is a cost so on thursday queen elizabeth publicly endorsed her son for the rule while there had been previous calls to take the position around all the members of the alliance john holmes joins us live now from central london hi there joe so there was some talk of the roll tape saying how has this then been decided.
8:10 pm
well you know previously this has been a deeply sort of to boo subject because essentially what you're talking about is the end of the reign of queen elizabeth. the fifth through obligation or or through death she's unlikely to abdicate so that's basically what we're talking about here it was the queen herself who brought it up earlier in the week when she gave a hint that she would like to see prince charles eventually succeed her she never said as much publicly and this was always going to be a summit at which this issue of succession was going to hang in the air if not actually become an issue of concrete fact while she got the ball rolling and here they are today announcing in dorset really the leaders of the commonwealth agreeing amongst themselves that what she wanted is what would happen that prince charles her eldest son would indeed succeed her it was widely assumed that he probably would she's given up a lot of her duties in recent years particularly travel she's previously traveled to all of the commonwealth countries many of them multiple times he has stood in
8:11 pm
for more and more so he's more and more seen as a face of the commonwealth and therefore it was widely assumed though not by any means his right to take on that role and there had been critics who had said look this is an organization that is deeply anachronistic it has lost its way it needs a new sense of purpose a new sense of direction let's bring leadership out from the members themselves perhaps have a rotating presidency give everybody a say well they haven't got that in the end and those who wanted to see change to see reform probably won't get it with prince charles but of course they will get a sense of stability a sense of continuity and john what about this question. yes that came up earlier in the day as well in a meeting with boris johnson the foreign secretary attended by. who is the zimbabwean foreign minister who is representing zimbabwe years of of course not any longer a member of the commonwealth having been a member for many many years two thousand and three it was when president gabi then
8:12 pm
pulled zimbabwe out of the commonwealth deeply annoyed by international criticism of his rule and of his his democracy. but zimbabwe really wants to get back in now under new leadership emerson and god where he'll have elections this year and boris johnson said look there is a way back into this club what you need to do is prove that you are going to hold free and fair and open elections and and as an open democracy therefore you might win back a place in the commonwealth and that's hugely important to small countries like zimbabwe who find it difficult to stand alone on the world stage the commonwealth gives them that sort of umbrella global platform it gives them trade advantages it gives them other advantages in terms of relationship relations with big economies and that perhaps as people search for meaning and in the commonwealth is a sign of at least for some countries what the purpose and meaning is so how they're joining me live from central london thanks. south africa's president cut short his visit to the u.k. for the commonwealth summit to deal with problems at home so around the pools as

8:21 pm
affect. there's a long history of being used and abused and you know always being the negative side of things that may be seen as people that are disposable so you know. yeah there's got to be an element of racism because if you look for the buck passed from the repeat it is windows generation these are people that came from former colonies colonies slave colonies where the wealth of those colonies came to enrich those countries you later now have the interest generation coming to build out these countries after the war and then you finish they use them. detain in some your denying some health care. you. destroy their records where you have very you know national archives you destroyed those records which is in a cynical to say well you know let's just follow this hardcore rhetoric because we

8:23 pm
carried out by the group during its battle for an independent state in northern spain and southwest france johnny and reports. after decades of violent an apology for this car bomb attacks shootings and assassinations in the name of independence i better an acronym that stands for basque homeland and freedom started as a student movement opposed to general franco's military dictatorship that went on to become one of europe's most violent and injuring armed groups from one thousand nine hundred eighty eight to two thousand and ten it killed more than eight hundred twenty people nearly half of them civilians. or for that. we are aware that during this long period of all struggle we have created a lot of pain including many damages for which there is no solution we want to show respect for the dead those injured and the victims that were caused by the actions
8:24 pm
of eta we truly apologize spain's government welcome the statement saying eta had been defeated by the weapons of democracy. this shows as political economic social and international just these last words not for as a for all the democrats if he's a deserter with the help of the state security forces judges and the international community. etter fell out of favor with the basque people decades ago and for some victims the apology was not enough. that doesn't fulfil my expectations i think it's a statement where they've tried to justify their acts and overall there's a selective forgiveness which i can't understand at all because we are all victims we have all suffered the pain caused by. the group's journey to dissolution has been long. in march two thousand and six after announce its first permanent cease fire and in response the socialist government started peace talks but nine months later at a bombed a car park at the international airport killing two people then in twenty ten the
