7:49 pm
returning home despite the dangers. three two one zero. left on his latest missions underway to send a probe to slingshot around the sun. welcome to the program after twenty two years of negotiations an agreement has been signed which could settle a territorial dispute. the caspian sea the leaders of russia kazakhstan iran turkmenistan and azerbaijan which border the caspian sea are meeting in the cousin port city of act how they've signed a convention on the legal status of the sea but so far no details on what they decided have been released it's all over now much of the caspian sea country can claim as their. russian president vladimir putin said an agreement was crucial to
7:50 pm
regional security and beyond. bizarre brussels to the un security is very important and this is what underpins our agreement which is this region has an influence on afghanistan on the middle east so this really affects the basic interests states and we need to pull together to combat the threat of terrorism and trans boundary criminality. iran's president said support from the caspian sea countries for the iran nuclear deal was a good sign for an agreement on sharing the areas natural resources here for isn't as bad a drum borne of honor the five countries efforts to support the iran nuclear deal is a good step towards expanding regional cooperation and the betterment of relations between us the natural resources of the caspian sea belong to the five countries bordering it so to prevent any dispute in the areas we have not negotiated we must avoid any unilateral exploration of the natural resources in this area. because fiancee is landlocked which raises a question whether it's indeed a sea or
7:51 pm
a lake now five countries share its coastline they include russia iran kazakstan azerbaijan and turkmenistan and that's led to the dispute over which country lays claim over the caspian and how much if the agreement is reached to legally designate the caspian in lake it would see it divided up equally between the five nations with twenty percent each if it remains a see the territory would be split between those countries according to how much coastline they share iran would therefore receive the smallest claim that's been the major sticking point in negotiations because the caspian lies above one of the world's largest collections of oil and gas some forty eight billion barrels of oil alone well challenge has been following events for us from the russian capital moscow where we were waiting for this day agreement document convention but we still don't really have any details to it. well we have the
7:52 pm
agreement we know that it's been signed and the details of course will be released in due course but we do understand a bit of what the five countries have agreed of course as you've just been explaining the the real sticking point for twenty two years has been is it a lake or is it a sea now the agreements that has just been signed seems to say that it is not really one and not really the other it's not a lake because it's so huge and it's not a sea because it doesn't have connections to the world's oceans. the agreements seems that basically separates the surface of the water and the seabed and it basically says that on the surface of the water all of the countries have joint use of the caspian sea underneath on the seabed there he's going to have to be an agreement that basically separates demarcates the territorial acquisitions
7:53 pm
of each country and that is going to happen i think in further negotiations the iranians say that the agreement that they have just signed here does not actually say who has what specifically and that there will be more negotiations needed for that but this does seem to be a huge step forward in this dispute long running dispute for over two decades now it also has security considerations built into it in that one of the specific things they've agreed to is that no other country i.e. no country that does not have a shoreline on the caspian sea is allowed to have a military presence there so that basically locks sounds the united states and locks out china locks and locks out the europeans and nato except for only the countries that have coastline on the caspian sea can have any military presence there and of course our view is a we rather confused or even bemuse that it's taken such
7:54 pm
a long time that we have to let them know that negotiations really began between two countries but over the last two decades it ended up being five countries. well basically the soviet union and iran had an agreement of sorts but were of course when the soviet union collapsed in one thousand nine hundred two suddenly that was essentially rendered void because you didn't just have two countries you now had five because the soviet union split up into its six successor states which included russia as a by john turkmenistan kazakstan so they all had their own national security issues they all had their own eyes on the particular. resources that were under the sea and they didn't agree with each other so that was why it has taken such a long time to come to some sort of agreement about this we have gone through twenty
7:55 pm
two years of of expert level meetings we have also had ten foreign minister meetings this is the fifth presidential level summits so there have been four before this one it has taken a long time to take a long time because the details are so thorny and also the stakes are so high there is a huge amount of oil and gas underneath the caspian sea. assessments from the united states government suggest that in gas alone if all the gas is under the caspian sea could be properly extracted and brought to market it could boost global output over the next ten years by twenty seven percent so this is not just the regional issue this is going to be something that is going to affect global energy markets for years to come where we leave it there for the thanks very much. well ian's have started voting in
7:56 pm
a runoff presidential election president abraham will become one of the first rode with forty one percent of the vote but opposition candidate somalia accuses him of fraud though the first round vote was bought by violence as well the struggles against groups her small from the capital bamako. the results of the first round two weeks ago gave forty one percent of the vote while his main rival got close to eighteen percent was accused of fraud by opposition leaders but really i know you know to get a low result in the election isn't good heart breaking but you cannot accuse president being behind that figure it's the decision of the million people which reflects their judgment of you. meanwhile was repeating the claims. once again i am asking for your vote so that together we can achieve the dream and the destiny that i have for mali i don't need to remind you of the grave in
7:57 pm
multiple illegalities of the first round which amount to political banditry they were a criminal breach of the law and of human dignity one day the reality will be clear to all and it will shame those who have dirty their hands with fraud and corruption . seceded borst of what he described as a major success in the first round he's the first opposition candidate in the democratic history of mali to take a sitting president to on off but his hopes of a united front by the other opposition parties have been partly dashed by that if he was alone many first round losing candidates to endorse him the government has also closed down a local radio station that supports sisi accusing it of inciting violence and hate speach. she says supporters organize a rally on saturday to protest the alleged electoral violations and to warn against a repeat violence was reported in at least a fifth of the twenty three thousand polling stations on july twenty ninth no vote
7:58 pm
took place at all in three percent of those centers and four soldiers were killed in an ambush as their convoy carrying election material since then ethnic violence has worsened in the central region of mukti as dozens of learning herdsman have been killed by rival hunters the e.u. has expressed concern over security and the government to govern a free and fair enough for the leaders the focus now is on the vote but for millions there is a desire to see that democracy does not fall victim to power struggles. have a valid joins us from the capital bamako you were at a polling station that mohammed how is polling progressing considering security was supposed to be a lot tighter second time around. yes so you can see one of the classrooms behind me that's one of the places where people have to go and vote but you can see how quiet it is until now we are approaching the middle of the day but the that turnout is completely. very minimal and people are expecting it to
7:59 pm
pick up in the afternoon as it's the same situation that happened last time but it's less and less still less people here today this time last time we were here on july twenty ninth the security situation is a factor here yesterday we just learned that yesterday three suspects were arrested here in by marco. the government said they were planning an attack that we can which is coinciding with their vote here they did not give more clarification but you know the background of this is war violence in the in the in the north and in the center of the country in the area of multi ethnic violence and also attacks by armed groups across the country they have several times warned that they would the softer vote that they would not allow it to happen in many areas in those areas i spoke about and hearing from of course so there are fears kelly after this announcement by the government of arresting some people the other factor that
8:00 pm
contributes to this low turnout is demoralizing as more lies asian on the on the part of the some of the opposition leaders and their supporters opposition leaders have refused to respond to favorably to a call by their opposition leader. to rally behind him in when you know united front against president abraham. so so my list is it got only eighteen percent in the first round he was he was capitalizing on probably a unified opposition behind me in the second that i know of but that doesn't seem to be happening and many people are you know feeling that there is a fait accompli here in front of millions they have to accept the fact that the president. is going to when to win this election we'll see what does happen still a few more hours to go before the polls close and look about two through the day thanks moment israel's palestinian minority has that they must protest in tel aviv or.
