entitled to be equal to us because the more. people protest against israel's nation state law but israeli prime minister says the measure will remain. and one year after violent protests in the u.s. state of virginia there's concern about commemorative march is set to take place in the country. mali and have started voting in a runoff presidential election president abraham boubacar what the first round with forty one percent of the vote but opposition candidates cusins him a fraud the first round vote was marred by violence as mali struggles against groups i met via reports in the capital bamako. that is also the
10:50 pm
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 when you know we need. to get a low result in the election is indeed heartbreaking but you cannot accuse president being behind that figure it's the decision of the molly and 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 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 is the first opposition candidate in the
10:51 pm
democratic history of mali to take a sitting president to on of what his hopes of a united front by the other opposition parties have been partly dashed by the refusal of many first round losing candidates to endorse him the government has also closed down a local radio station that support 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 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 mctee as dozens of herdsman have been killed by rival gangs or hunters the e.u. has expressed concern over security and the government to govern
10:52 pm
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. now after twenty two years of talks an agreement has been signed which will settle a territorial dispute over the caspian sea the leaders of russia kazakhstan iran turkmenistan and azerbaijan which border the caspian have met in the cars at port city of a towel on the convention on the legal status of the sea but so far we've yet to hear exactly how that will work it's all about how much of the caspian each country can claim as their as the russian president vladimir putin said an agreement was crucial to regional security and beyond. bizarre brussels to the un security is very important and this is what underpins our agreements in 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
10:53 pm
trans boundary criminality you know 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. well challenge them following the story from moscow rory so we know that the leaders have signed a deal but what exactly are they signed up to well what they've done is taken a big step forward in resolving this decades old territorial dispute it's essentially about what's the caspian sea is as the largest inland body of water in
10:54 pm
the world does it constitute a sea or is it a lake now the conclusion that they seem to reach an actor is that it's not really one it's not a lake because it's too big to be a lake and it's not really a sea because it's not actually connected to the world's oceans so it has aspects of one and aspects of the other and therefore it deserves its own special classification so what they have decided is to essentially have the surface of this body of water open for access for all of the five countries where as the bed of this body of water the floor needs to have further negotiations to divvy it up properly amongst these five countries at stake are more than a trillion several trillion dollars worth of energy oil and gas and pipelines to take it to lucrative markets around the world now the united states
10:55 pm
expects that if the caspian sea is full reserves of gas can be exploited then that will over the next ten years boost global production by twenty seven percent that's huge i mean that's that's going to have large ramifications for global energy markets which shows a kind of how important this whole thing is we're not there yet we haven't reached a final conclusion of a final situation but we have taken a big step today yeah and really the fact that the bordering countries haven't seen conflict over rights is surely a blessing but as you say they all want to slice of the natural resources. yeah they do i mean it's it's not just about resources it's about security as well and vladimir putin we heard a few minutes ago talking about that this is a harbor of trade and commerce that affects these five countries but also the wider
10:56 pm
region and it's a transit point for drugs it's a transit point for human trafficking that sort of thing so these sorts of agreements can go some way towards tackling problems like that they also have an interest these five countries on essentially making the caspian sea an exclusive zone a lockout zone they don't want anybody else meddling in these waters so one other thing that they have decided in act out is to prohibit any other country any country that doesn't have a part of the shoreline there from having any military presence on the sea so that's pretty significant it's taken them a long time to get the this is been going on since the collapse of the soviet union in one thousand nine hundred two when there were only two states that really had an interest in in the caspian sea there was the u.s.s.r. and there was a wrong but of course when the u.s.s.r. dissolved there were several successive states so it's those successive states
10:57 pm
russia kazakhstan azerbaijan tech minister on hand iran that have been trying ever since to get this deal done rory thank you our little turn now to that presidential election in algiers mohammed volage joins us live now from the capital bamako mohamed so a second round of voting after what was an initial violent first round what's the status on security has it been tightened. yes daryn the government says it has increased the number of security personnel to guide this election to make it safe are from thirty thousand in the first found on july twenty ninth to thirty six thousand now and they either have been managing or trying to spread those i asked security personnel across the country to be able to reach all the polling stations and make the voting process has a fire under fire i don't know about the problems in this country the problem problem is that the government doesn't have a strong presence in many areas particularly in the center and the central region
10:58 pm
of matthew and also in the rough. times in fact he has spread out of control and killings ethnic killings have been taken on. on an increase during the last several months and also in the north i am groups have been mounting attacks more attacks even even despite the presence of armies and twenty three african countries this is mission in that area is very out of control and the government has been trying to you know reassure the population that you know this time around we will not see those discussions and i smile asians are the security breaches that happened there but there are no guarantees we need to talk about other aspects of this election of this event today is mr gray. there president of the patriotic front it's an association that he's acknowledged to send irises a head of the opposition was running against the president mr goble the great tell me about today as well do you think it's going to be more fiery and free than the
10:59 pm
one that took place on the july twenty ninth. thank you to everybody who will oh we think that. election is very particular. on the political aspect and the security aspect and the american culture and today is the million people have to know that i. i'll do you regret it is we resigned on the first part of that elections the. smell as she decided the responsibility to go to re-election and then eying the first saying that we are very liberal it is the kind thing about the references and the secretary do you think they will be different she yes i think really will be different because i want. to survive because they million people know that they are only three million people voting on
11:00 pm
the first part and then we have a pedestal of eight million and these other five million will be to make a difference you think that and i to be better today why are people going to be normalized so they are more i think just like the guy when there is a lot of laughs among the opposition during the first round trying to expect the first like i said that they knew they had to because like afraid they would like to . to react badly new action and the time is in africa in general and the first class level people yellow stand back stand alone and with this woman tired to go to make the different exactly the size of the things is so big the size of a thing such a position is not mobilize now that we know that this is the final stand with the president. that she is ok you know this but we have seen today that the turnout is very light.
