now to istanbul and our correspondent andrew symonds so they've clearly had a quite a robust conversation about what mr erdogan would like to get from mr trump. it would certainly seem that way peter although we haven't had any clarification from turkish officials or indeed the white house yet just that confirmation from the white house that the subjects of the murder of come out she has showed she had been discussed not only just between the u.s. president and president but also nearby at the dinner on saturday nights was going to merkel and emmanuelle maccarone the french president and the german chancellor respectively they were all saying gauged in the conversation but this is really very much on the sidelines as you would describe it of the main discussion of whether or not there will be bilateral meetings between the turkish
6:09 pm
president on the u.s. president is unclear it would appear that not at this stage certainly not listed on a medical are expected to speak with trump but that this stage we have no confirmation of any sort of such a meeting being on the shuttle but one can be sure that this was a robust conversation because the message that the that one took with him was really echoing around corridors of power all over europe it was addressed at the united states also saudi arabia britain france germany and other mainline leaders of the world in that it said this it said this is the odia recording please should listen to it share it this is the audience recording evidence of the murder of a journalist whose only crime was to be engaged in human rights for the people of saudi arabia and the murder took place in this coincidence the saudi consulates on

6:51 pm
in paris covering this historic event james bays is that the palace but we begin with natasha butler at the ark to a tree on a sun attash overly somber occasion this what are we expecting. yes and i don't know if you can hear behind me but bells are actually ringing out across paris to mark eleven o'clock because it was eleven o'clock paris time on the eleventh day of the eleventh month nine hundred eighteen that the guns fell silent that the fighting ended in a world war one century later here we are at the arc de triomphe in central paris and more than seventy world leaders are making their way up the shores of the say the famous avenue that leads to the op to where they will gather to remember the millions of people who died twenty million civilians and soldiers died in the first world war there were forty million casualties they will be at the tomb of the unknown soldier they'll be a minute's silence will hear various musicians playing and the french president
6:52 pm
a man who will make a speech for him the accent on this commemoration is on reconciliation it's not on national triumph and i think it was no coincidence that we saw the french president walk out of the lease a little earlier hand in hand with the german chancellor angela merkel. a touch about a life or so where the the tree off let's turn now to james bays who is at the palace for us so james they are there too to remember those who fought and died in that war on hundred years ago but inevitably whether it were the gathering of this many world leaders there are other issues there that are going to be addressed and other controversies perhaps. yeah absolutely that is what always happens when you have a big gathering of world leaders and they've already actually been meeting third in the elisei powerless. before this commemoration over and as you can see
6:53 pm
very very wet here and yet in just the last few minutes we saw not just our supporters in the rain but we saw something i've never seen before which is a succession of world leaders come down that red carpet as in the tasha said they were led by president mark kroll and chancellor merkel walking through the rain heading then to abbas to take them to the commemoration worth telling you and i think this won't play out very well domestically for him the president trump was not amongst them he canceled a visit to the to a cemetery or whether u.s. war dead twenty four hours ago because of the rain and because of his security he's not traveling with the other world leaders he's traveling in his armored limo as is president putin and prime minister netanyahu they're making their own way because they don't walk out in the same way and travel by bus as the other world leaders do at the end of the commemoration and all of the thoughts about one hundred years ago
6:54 pm
what the french have decided is to use this occasion to leverage the future and peace in the future something called the paris peace forum which is taking place after they've had lunch here at the elite and the french i think want to push the idea of multilateralism of international cooperation of course that's very different from president trump's vision of the world and america first and it may not surprise you that president trump is not actually intending that piece for him he will we believe go to a cemetery where there are american war dead the second of the two visits because he abandoned the first and then he'll be flying back to washington d.c. . and james just as we're talking to you there we're looking at these live pictures of the leaders beginning that walk now led by french president emmanuel mccourt to mark one hundred years since the end of that war walking down the shores
6:55 pm
early shows that he's a from the octu to triomphe and james as you said there that the french are very keen to keep the this emphasis on remembering what happened in that war war and to perhaps use it also. as as a reminder of what's at stake in today's world. yes absolutely i think the pictures of those world leaders walking we'd sort of assumed that when they left here they were going to get on a pass at some point but the fact they're walking all the way these are very very important people i think shows some perhaps humility on this day where they're remembering this amazing sacrifice jury and that the great war where as many as eleven million people died and i think they are also hoping to address issues in
6:56 pm
the paris peace forum later on where there are ongoing conflicts clearly syria comes to mind clearly yemen comes to mind and certainly on yemen there's quite some lots of diplomatic activity on syria things are going pretty slowly not there's no real progress on the u.n. peace efforts there on yemen there is a feeling that with saudi arabia on the back foot at the moment and facing international scrutiny that maybe saudi can give some ground on yemen there was talk of peace talks even taking place by the end of this month in sweden now i think that is a little bit optimistic the new word i'm getting from diplomats in new york is it's more likely that they'll try an aim for that by the end of the month but there is a great deal of pressure on saudi arabia on that war in yemen given the devastating death toll to try and seek some ceasefire and certainly works going on at the u.n. in new york to get a u.n. security council resolution the u.k.
6:57 pm
one of the five permanent members is working on that so as they march through the streets of paris these world leaders marching through the streets of paris to remember the dead of world war one the hope is later in the day that extra efforts can be made towards peace right now in the world. james for the moment thanks very much. christina wu is a historian and professor at the sorbonne university in paris and she joins us now live from there thanks very much for being with us so what lessons do you think can be learned from what happened one hundred years ago and i'm talking more specifically here about the rise of nationalism that took place in europe and elsewhere in the years after world war one and we're seeing nationalism on the rise in in many places today do you see any any parallels to draw from there. there definitely
6:58 pm
a lot of parallels that we can that we can result from that and i think that oh what is important to note here is that well we can see that right after what well it was celebrating here the centennial really of the end of the first world war rather but what happened after that especially especially with the pay the paris treaty of assize the paris peace treaty that is harrah's a new era of peace talks and multilateralism so that is one thing that we must keep in mind there hope that that will come out as as a result of. that of the end of the memory of the end of the war and. one thing wish perhaps we should also keep in mind is that when we view one multilateral nationalism to to work and we want to have that platform. walking that we must have big policy nations agreeing to work alongside small the nations you talk about multilateralism do you do you think good again given what's
6:59 pm
happening in the world right now and of the rise of nationalism and populism and so on a president from very much for most in this america first policy you think multilateralism is is under threat in today's world. i think it is star is a huge potential for that and we see that happening as you point out very rightly with not only president transamerica first policy but also let's think about china as think also about as well as as put in this russia and we do have we see that happening and i think what is speaking in the historian and investments of your question concerning what lessons from history we can that that should be brought out to the fore here then we must of course think about what happened with the paris peace talks and at that point of time the great nations that come together and the. it's at least the beginning of the planting of the sea notably
7:00 pm
wilson's press and wilson's. idea of the league of nations. to create and to do away with that of nationalism and to come together and to bring forward a new era of peace and just going back to the commemorations that we're seeing right now for the end of that war as we were saying at the top there this is a war that killed by by many estimates as many as twenty million people civilians and soldiers it was known as back then as the war to end all wars. people that world hadn't had not never seen anything like it up to that point do you think perhaps today's generation given the fact that europe is as seen largely a peaceful iraq over the last few decades do you think today's generation often forgets the sacrifice the people from one hundred years ago made.
7:01 pm
well i would i think a more optimistic point of view on that question and i would say that speaking as someone who has thought younger people and steve.
