this is al-jazeera and these are the top stories in the last hour the president of turkey. burdwan has been speaking about the killing of that saudi journalist jamal khashoggi saying that he has provided audiard recordings about what happened in the consulate. to the u.s. saudi arabia and european countries as well let's go now to andrew simmons who is live for us in istanbul and. yes president thirty one was speaking just before getting on the plane to paris he'll be having a meeting with the u.s. president obama left meeting with the u.s. president donald trump on sunday and he did reveal that he had passed on that the state had passed on the wiretapping as the recordings inside the consulate on november the second which would be the second should i say which would prove
8:20 pm
without any doubt whatsoever. was murdered murdered by saudi hit team he said these had been passed on these recordings have been passed on to the united states also to european states and indeed saudi arabia he also insisted that without any shadow of doubt whatsoever the eighteen people named by saudi arabia in that spot suspect list of the murderers were amongst those eighteen the fifteen that were listed here in turkey it has to be said it's been eighteen listed by saudi but the murderers were amongst that list he said it was down to saudi arabia to give full details of exactly what happened to jamal he wanted the united states to to pressure the saudis to do so so there is no doubt that he will set out to pass that message on distinctly to the u.s.
8:21 pm
president in france and we will absolutely follow from where you are and from paris as well as thank you for the latest on that date out of. turkey's president is saying about the killing of jamal khashoggi those are the headlines that will continue to follow that story and all the day's news on al-jazeera and side story as that next there. one hundred years after the end of world war one there is another war one of world vision's ideologies of the french and u.s. presidents clashes leaders gather in paris for imitate events how dangerous are these differences and how close are we to another global conflict this is inside
8:22 pm
story. of the program i'm richelle carey it was the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month and became a pivotal moment in world history and marked the armistice agreement that officially ended world war one and this weekend one hundred years later we are some more than fifty countries are gathering in france for commemorative events but the solemn occasion is being overshadowed by deep divisions between transatlantic allies this week the french president call for a european army to defend itself from potential threats from nations such as russia china and markedly the united states and global philosophy is at odds with the u.s. president on a nationalist america first agenda how stark are the divisions between those ideologies of trump and mccrone there's
8:23 pm
a lot to discuss with our guests. jordan on how the u.s. got involved in the first world war. on april second one nine hundred seventeen u.s. president woodrow wilson issued the battle cry the world must be made safe for democracy many americans approved of the decision to go to war against germany and its allies a government that is running amok but despite the headlines and propaganda efforts just as many americans opposed fighting in the so-called great war the u.s. historian michael kazin described the antiwar movement in his recent book war against war it did seem like a war that was in the american national interests seem like a war that most europeans had not wanted to fight in the first place so there was a sense that if america got involved the war it would only make guys face more militarist country which is just the fall face so in the european powers that had
8:24 pm
gone to war in the first place even so kazan says the impact of the war on us society was far reaching some suffragist leveraged women's performance in the workplace to convince congress they should have the right to vote black soldiers including the harlem hell fighters who fought in france discovered their service did not protect them from racism after the war and that inspired the work of civil rights activists in the decades ahead and the us started a long running debate about what it means to be a global power economically militarily and diplomatically. wilson had resisted calls to enter the war since it began in one nine hundred fourteen but after a german u. boat torpedo the cargo ship aztec on april first getting congress to declare war was easy by the time the armistice was signed on november eleventh one thousand nine hundred eighteen one hundred sixteen thousand u.s. troops had died either in combat or because of the flu pandemic kazan says that
8:25 pm
does not mean the antiwar movement had failed what the story there to we're moving doing what one can teach us is that it's crucial for americans for people for the nation to force their politicians and their media. and their businesses those of other businesses to. think very carefully about this decision because once you decide to go to war there's no going back an important insight one hundred years on especially given that americans still don't agree on when and why the u.s. should go to war rosalyn jordan al-jazeera washington. joining us now from coventry via skype david lisi is lecturer in french that he set warrick university and coeditor of contemporary france and in berlin thorston
8:26 pm
inventor director of the global public policy and to welcome to the program gentlemen we appreciate it so there's been a a lot of late up to that this commemoration this anniversary events and paris and over the past few days french president mandela made a call for a new or european force to defend europe specifically naming russia china and the u.s. i want to start with you david how did those remarks strike you. well in many ways i think this is this is nothing new it in some ways the macro he he's positioning himself as a kind of dominant leader of the french nation and of course richard is perceived to be a threat by many european powers including germany in the u.k. but the difference here there of course is the image to the u.s. a theme of the central challenge now this comes in the context of donald trump threatening to withdraw u.s. pending from nato and micro is a real he's a real fun of the the so-called supranational bodies so particular the european
8:27 pm
union and also nato he sees the french role in both of those organizations being significant so for micro in some ways this is an opportunity this isn't self as being a leader of those two organizations and say france be pushed to the world stage i think he's research jostling for position here today many ways i think we need to draw a line between the rhetoric of macro and the reality is a situation a chronic trump appeared to enjoy a very close personal relationship whereby here in the rhetoric around what micron is saying this appears to be sort of more of a challenge in a position of trying to force france to the top of the national agenda so i wouldn't i wouldn't read too much into this and are are your parents even on on the same page with that crawl when it comes to that day that i'll get to in just a moment or sense i wouldn't say so no i think macro is if he has his own political agenda to try and raise of course this is a man here is actually very in popular moments domestically in france he's somebody
8:28 pm
you need. popularity in in france and he's concerned i think it's secular about his domestic economic agenda his came to power promising economic reforms to the french state nobody's been seen yet and so really there are people in france wondering what exactly is going to do now whenever a french president look to try and position himself as a kind of key of eda oversees this year and their popularity and a challenge to so macro. so it's that left wing away from its lack of popularity when you look at the u.k. that is i'm going to go for example in threes may in the u.k. there's clearly a sense that actually european defense agents are you know i mean it's not going to happen it's not something which is a priority and in particular because of the u.k.'s contacts to break this that's playing on the number one priority the moment so micro in some ways is an outlier ready enough and either say it's every day every this year around rhetoric around political domestic agenda and anything else that's and how did it strike you when.
8:29 pm
that way. i mean that the context seemed pretty reasonable it was a speech or remarks he gave leading up to the anniversary of the end of the first world war where he warned against the poison of aggressive nationalism that is spreading in europe again and across the world he warned against the aggressive author of terrorism of china and russia and against the division that europe for the internal division that europe divisions that europe needs overcome those are all very reasonable remarks what he said with this kind of real european army that he wanted and also this off hand remark that it's partly put possibly also directed against the u.s. that struck me as somewhat odd i mean it's it's partly in tradition with some of the some of the previous rhetoric but it overshoots the previous rhetoric i think quite considerably and i'm not sure why charles that it wasn't embedded in
8:30 pm
a broader policy initiative that hasn't there hasn't been any follow up and the u.s. and france are allies does it concern you that this is what the rhetoric has become between two countries that are supposed to be allies david i'll let you take that first i do think this way it's kind of a matter of positioning himself as it hearing to be in this kind of long tradition of anti-americanism in france this is something which goes back at city one thousand nine hundred twenty and beyond and more recently after the second world war it was a significant level nancy americanism which is of course encouraged by charles to go numb up krum see themselves as being a call at least in some way seen as kind of directly heritage some of charles de gaulle policy solutions to those ideas around france's role in the world stage so i'd say in some ways moment for us doing here is kind of a ping goes language but in a context where there is no more cold war it's a very different political economic landscape from the one nine hundred sixty one to go in power so we want to bring someone else into the conversation now from
8:31 pm
brussels theresa fallon's going to join the conversation director of center for russia your. asia studies we appreciate your time and i want to bring you into the conversation and ask you the same question that i put to the gentleman that in the last few days france for france's president mad men while macro and pardon me made reference to wanting a european force to defend europe specifically against threats in russia china that's not surprising but he made the united states as well i'd be curious to know your thoughts your reaction to those remarks well we saw donald tusk say the same thing several months ago i think this is a worrying narrative especially since transplanted relations have been very strong for the last seventy years and this is not helpful i think this is in response to the trumpet ministration. way the pulling out of iran agreement also climate change pulling out of that agreement and also the tariff or so instead of working with the europeans the trumpet ministration has unfortunately had the approach of upsetting
8:32 pm
everyone at the same time allies as well as adversaries and instead of working together with them they've actually turn them against the u.s. now this new program that. the crown has mentioned i mean i wonder how this will work sitting as they do in brussels how this will work with pascoe because pascoe is made up of twenty five members and this is kind of a coalition of the willing it also pulls in the u.k. which is traditionally not interested in some sort of european armies of this is an interesting creation of a coalition of the willing and how this will affect nato will it help or will it compete with nato in the future is also problematic i think everyone would be happy if europe did more heavy lifting the u.s. is involved in three theaters right now and if your did more heavy lifting in its own region i think that would be very much appreciated and i want to bring bring up something to eat a good point that she said that there maybe it is a fair critique that europe could do more of the heavy lifting and some would say that that's what donald trump has been trying to get to it's just maybe not perhaps
8:33 pm
the most. a diplomatic way that he says things and less is honest he's actually insulted a lot of allies bit and said things that just weren't actually true about you know they owed the us money etc etc having said that do you think he has a fair critique of course i mean he does have a point to europeans are not doing their share to collective security within nato and. european allies or everybody agreed to a two percent spending goal in terms of g.d.p. and many countries including germany are not moving closer toward that goal at least not fast enough and saw all too many americans including donald trump for european allies come across as needy whiney allies and free riders and he ticklers this in a pretty crass kind of way but i think he does.
