streets. on poori solus fault coming up al serena williams reaches her second grand slam final in a row just a year after she had the wife's age saving surgery following the birth of her daughter. thank you for joining us a summit that could well decide what happens to millions of people in syria and the future of the seven year war is about to begin any iran's capital within the past hour russian president vladimir putin has arrived in tehran following takesh leadership typewriter one they will soon join iran's president hassan rouhani in talks on the last remaining rebel held province in syria russia iran and syria have threatened an all out assault against what they call terrorists but they're open to surrender deals from so-called moderate groups turkey which borders it and back some. the opposition fighters wants to avert military action it fears an influx of
1:02 pm
refugees from the northwest and syrian province the un envoy says panic is spreading among the three million people there he says all efforts must be made to avoid a humanitarian catastrophe while we have two correspondents with us on the story live. is in tehran stephanie deca is on the turkey syria border stephanie will be speaking to you in just a moment for but first to use a so all three leaders have now arrived in tehran what's on the table what are they hoping to achieve. well folly these are the men who were the architects of the standard talks designed to try to bring a negotiated solution to the conflict in syria but simultaneously they've also been the architects of what is essentially been an eight year civil conflict in syria all three countries have been involved in some way and so with their rivals in the country at the moment president putin stepped off a plane less than an hour ago president before him they've all of all been holding
1:03 pm
bilateral talks with each other before they sit down at the table all three of them and we got a glimpse of what they might talk about from a senior aide to the foreign minister of iran shahade zarif in remarks that he made this morning the three men are expected to sign some kind of agreement that will govern and directs how they are involved in the ongoing military operation into the future in syria they're also expected to discuss the return of refugees and the rights that they may have once they return and the third point that he said that the men would be discussing is creating a committee designed to investigate the arrest of people by the syrian government as well as those men and women that have gone missing during the conflict so it seems that humanitarian concerns are a priority for them but just a week before the u.n. high commissioner for refugees for the program was into iran and he said that all of these men need to do better when it comes to preserving human life inside syria what can we expect on edge. as saying they have been some differences among bashar
1:04 pm
assad's allies about what should happen next in this stronghold in syria are they likely to come to some sort of agreement as far as what to do on the. well we got we got some idea of that just a few days ago when foreign ministers of odds are it was in damascus on a surprise visit and you spoke about it louis said preserving human life making sure that humanitarian conditions are met is a very important part of the negotiations that they can carry out it was going to be a prime focus for these three men during these talks but they also started looking forward they're talking about reconstruction and economic growth within syria and. iran could benefit from that growth and so all these three men are looking forward to korten stepping stone but they really want to book in this conflict and all indications are that the military placements we're seeing by the syrian government backed by russian air power in the last few days indicates that
1:05 pm
a conflict inside libya is looking more and more inevitable thank you for that for us in tehran let's cross over to stephanie deca now in right on the border with syria stephanie as we said the focus on this last remaining rebel stronghold in syria a syrian government offensive of course have disastrous consequences for the people living there as we've heard from the u.n. just how worried are people and what sort of preparations are being made to try and contain a potential catastrophe from turkey especially which has borne the brunt of serious humanitarian crisis. well there is a lot of anxiety and fear of course in italy but there's nothing much that the civilians can do about it is just behind us folly that is just a small section of the biggest camp for internally displaced is around eight hundred thousand people that live like that along turkey's border turkey doesn't want anymore its borders been closed for years it hosts over three million syrian refugees what are they trying to do while they're trying to contain it what they're
1:06 pm
trying to do is talk to some of the rebel groups inside particularly. this is the group formerly known as in this refund believed to be linked to al qaida to try to get them to disband to join other rebel groups that are more backed by turkey but the problem with that folly is in the long term is that damascus wants to take back the entire province so you could almost say you know regardless of who the groups are affiliated with they are still an armed opposition and damascus is a is to get rid of all of them but of course again you know it's the civilians where are they going to go turkey is not going to open its borders will have to go inside syria so it's very concerning for them everyone wondering stephanie how the conflict will play out in its final stages if the rebels were to lose it late what would that mean would the war be over. i think in a nutshell no because where the rebels are going to go you still have territory and i think this is one of the main concerns turkey has the kurds kurdish territory in northern syria along its border that is
1:07 pm
a main issue and you can be sure that the president or the one who's bringing that to the table today also when it comes to syria when it comes to these negotiations very much about bartering fully i will allow you to get this if you give me that so the men will be talking about things like that what's going to happen to the kurdish region in that region the americans have troops there and we've just heard from the u.s. special envoy to syria he just was in turkey two days ago saying that americans are not going to be pulling out their troops any time soon this concern about the iranian presence inside syria israel has concern about that the americans are concerned about that i think it's you know it's interesting if we look at this the future of syria of a sovereign country is being decided at the moment into iran by turkey by russia and by iran so it gives you a sense that there is still a lot of divvying up spheres of influence if you will and i think there's still complicated days to come ok stephanie thank you very much for that stephanie decker reporting there live from the turkey syria border now while the talks get under way on syria plan meeting on the war in yemen has hit
1:08 pm
a snag hoofy rebels haven't yet managed to fly into the swiss city of geneva for negotiations with representatives of the many government the u.n. special envoy for yemen martin griffith is already there he says he has discussed issues including prisoners and humanitarian access with yemen's foreign minister live david chaytor who's in geneva for us so things off to a rocky start there in geneva are these talks going to happen at all. well let me give you some information from sources inside the united nations headquarters in geneva they say that essentially martin griffiths will keep on with his efforts to try and get the rebel rebel delegation lifted off from sana to join these consultations talks now it's not sure exactly when that can happen but it is certain as far as the special envoy is concerned that it will happen now it could be later saturday sunday or even monday the only problem there is sort
1:09 pm
of course he will have to persuade the yemeni government delegation to bear with him to keep their patience going and that could be a very difficult task or they are committed to the peace process they've said so loudly and clearly they are very disturbed by the demands of the rebel delegation for these so-called injured fighters to be put on that plane with them and taken for medical treatment at my scott in oman now i was speaking earlier with the spokesman for the government delegation and he said very clearly that as far as they were concerned some of these people that the hooty rebel delegation want to put on that plane are members of hezbollah and also iranian military who have been training the hutu militia over the last few years and they said that of course is
1:10 pm
unacceptable and as long as they keep demanding. those men taken off on the plane then it doesn't look likely that these consultations talks can even start saying hang in the balance folly as always here how long can the patience last for the government that is the main question today the talks do end up happening at some point david what will they focus on. what are the expectations. well the expectations are that they will start to assemble confidence building measures along the special envoy for the i guess this is very keen on and he's been pushing this idea that there should be a prisoner swap arranged between the two warring parties he said this will add to the confidence and the trust between the two sides of course this will have to be
1:11 pm
done by the i.c.r.c. . very difficult always to arrange these prisoner swaps but they will give that flicker of hope to the people of yemen that the special envoy said was most important they would get families reunited it would allow them to rebuild their lives give them some hope for the future and that is mainly what he's been discussing with the yemeni government delegation who are staying at this hotel behind me but as i say the main question is how much longer can they wait and will the hoochie rebel delegation stick to their demands to take these injured people with them to their. peers they do include members of his and the iranian military thank you for that. iraq's parliament has called an emergency meeting for saturday to discuss days of government protests in basra at least eleven people have been killed in the offices of political parties on the radio. and state run

1:13 pm
a valley in southern serbia where the population is mostly ethnic albanian would join kosovo in return serbia would take control over the majority sort of area of kosovo north of the river avon but it's a gamble that could provoke further tensions in the balkans or go to brussels in just a moment but first only a day ago reports from press civil close to the serbia kosovo border. oh it's the first week back at school for these young students at the ybor him kelmendi primary school in the town of pressure it's the largest one of its kind in serbia all the pupils are albanian as they settle in the school itself prepares for what could be the last time it teaches the serbian curriculum and what they hope will be a fresh start for the school. there's hardly been any investment here since ninety sixty five everything's in poor condition and we have no bread we're being in textbooks. the possibility of
1:14 pm
a land swap between serbia and kosovo has been uppermost in people's minds here pressure of us population is ninety percent ethnic albanian the u.s. and the european union had always discouraged the idea until now and apparently straightforward solution on the surface but has the potential to reopen old wounds in this part of the balkans which has already suffered brutal conflict following the breakdown of yugoslavia one of the plans that people here fear is being discussed is moving the border to this railway track now while that would put the town of pressure firmly within the borders of kosovo it would mean that these outlying villages would still be in serbia and the thousands of other albanians still stuck there. moreover there is still on certainty as to what serbia would want to return but would likely dominated northern kossovo which it views is
1:15 pm
non-negotiable yes we would like to be part of republic of course or the we have to be very careful in order for regionals in terms of you know for republic of course all to be agreed with a lot of sacrifices being done by all the albanians including the veins of. we don't want to interfere in this process this also poses another dilemma for the region's leaders if borders are to be redrawn on the basis of ethnicity it could provoke more calls for land swaps from macedonia which has more than half a million albanians living along its front is even the goal of eventual e.u. x. session football can countries cannot lay these fears. we don't find discussion about and between kosovo and serbia conducive to reaching the goal we think it will reopen too many old wounds in the population eyes and that is why we are very skeptical. it is
1:16 pm
a huge gamble with the risk of reigniting ethnic conflict here a political process that will take it normal amount of delicate negotiation from all parties involved sunday valuable al-jazeera pressure. speak together in a glue such now in brussels for selena what's the latest on this meeting between the serbian and cause on leaders. well there is no dialogue between belgrade and pushed you know here in brussels today according to syrian authorities acosta was trying to ban that xander bill to strip to kosovo tomorrow and in this moment we are still don't know if he's going to go to kosovo or not and we are still waiting for a. reaction offer that he come to really on this situation this situation came in the very interesting moment because these schools are both in.
1:17 pm
the course of all there are expressions like partition delamination exchange of territory border correction between syria and the binion's soup in president alexander who teaches talking about delamination between serbs and the then is and course of the president. is talking about border correction these ideas are interpreted in the public as partition and exchange of territories between serbia and kosovo it's clear that both sides are not satisfied with this situation in this current state and the president has said this morning before his meeting. that cost of all in serbia are definitely going into the last of a dialogue in order to achieve a final agreement and he is hoping to see this final agreement and
1:18 pm
the progress in both of congress but we'll see no progress today and we didn't hear from alexander which is well till tonight he must decide if he's going to cause of all or not and of course we are still waiting to see what they're going to be the consequences of this situation so no dialogue today between the leaders of kosovo and serbia thank you for bringing us any say from brussels to such. i suspect is being questioned in brazil after a presidential election candidate was stabbed as he campaigns doctors say. is in grave but stable condition in hospital the far right candidate is popular in opinion polls despite racist and homophobic comments given elizondo reports. it was an attack that happened fast. on a brazil's top presidential candidates being carried on the shoulders of his supporters at

1:31 pm
unprecedented decision i understand from the i.c.c. explain to us for us how prosecutors were able to convince the court it could investigate crimes committed in myanmar even though the country is not signatory to the court. you're saying to me as you go way that i think some. of these the crimes of expulsion forcing people out of one country will never come are not complete until the person arrives in their outcomes so i'm waiting for somebody out form a country that has not ratified the international criminal court statute into a country that has ratified that you can weigh that bangladesh then you can say a crime is partly committed. that you support jurisdiction and that means the court can consider offense overall and that would be a matter of expulsion back and he's been burnt me and mom the decision of the court
1:32 pm
goes a little bit further very wales one it says the other possible war crimes committed in myanmar may have consideration in the jurisdiction of the international criminal court because it was forced expulsion being any. where in that we didn't bangladesh and the quotable so be very interesting in making it clear that the prosecutor should not waste time in getting on an investigation so talk us through the process that there is no formal investigation yet by the i.c.c. how long until we see charges against me and my students. more than that i don't know but that's why it's gotten so are encouraged in the past it's a scene where there'll be a repeat or. players involved. trying to. prosecute. they drag his or her feet in the present. now arguably responsive to
1:33 pm
wire act or pressure form countries. now the instant the process of saying i'm going to investigate will then going on to investigate complaints year the judges in this case and said no this is a very serious delay where is the value of every meeting got your restriction you're going to investigate and get on with saying whether there should be charges doing and this is really well you know it shows the slow but inevitable way once you create a judicial systems national or international those who create will be right now i think think that you ultimately they come right because we even last month the un itself issued a damning report accusing an mars' military of genocide and other crimes against the ranger if any myanmar leaders way venture bringing them to at the hague is
1:34 pm
going to be difficult is it not. yes we were going over the last place where we go to get into the evidence and much of it isn't well there's a bit there's a great amount of variable to those people who want to come and the calls a lot of evidence available from international observers who read but i think we have the evidence is that it and then when he was really related to charge against doing it's going to be getting game or just so but it's never impossible remember some of the big cases what else we can spawn but also charles taylor it's another never before seen we see people would be brought to book circumstances change sometimes on a on a very very quick and they work so these people need vesta geisha abuse charges individuals a charge they would of course no longer be able to travel and even never be sure that they're going to be changes in the regime in myanmar that will lead to their being kind of the cool when it comes to the evidence whole is responsible of
1:35 pm
gathering it if indeed there is a case in the future at the i.c.c. . prosecutor is responsible for having with me or considering it and deciding whether to charge but. they have a. great deal but here there's an enormous body of evidence coming from people who are expert in the area and who down substantially investigation what's going on and . so that body of that material is available you don't have to go and start from scratch in everything that you're going to do and now that was a judgment was being given one would expect and the impetus that is being given by the court that the prosecutor who acts with no one would expect them to. have the every piece of available information that's readily available and turning completely rody conducted investigations of one kind or another and using that
1:36 pm
don't have to do it with your own thoughts. so jeffrey nice thank you so very much for your insights thank you for joining us today from canterbury said geoffrey nice if i'm the prosecutor for the international criminal tribunal for the former yugoslavia asked staying with the fate of the rohingya and in bangladesh's cox's facade gas stoves are being handed out to families who rely on firewood to cook their meals hundreds of thousands of refugees on living in the camps where resources remains. john john reports from cox's bazar in cox's bazaar bangladesh it's not just a humanitarian crisis that's unfolding an environmental one is too that's why today in the could to prolong refugee camp brock a local in geo is overseeing the planting of trees. tells me this initiative is one part of a larger effort to help this landscape recover and recounts how things got so dire . what is did. to the rohingya came to this country to far as charity got
