7:00 pm
the beginning of the planting of the sea notably 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 also thought younger people and students in the university i think there is a lot of thought that goes behind and a lot of recognition of the sacrifices that have been indeed made on the part of very young men especially at the front. during the first war but i think younger generations today do do remember that and the commemorative efforts are definitely important in that regard. but if i if i just me just speaking about about the sacrifices we should perhaps a remember that this is not only a question of of lives at the heart of this loss of life and and all that sacrifice . so it's you have as well people from different parts of the world who actually.
7:02 pm
oh just a reason. many said something about the workers from say and spies of course let's not forget the killing in shorts. to speak to you christina would thanks very much for being with us. all as we said later this hour french president emmanuel quality you see him there in the center of your screen will be delivering a speech at the art tree in central paris france was of course the epicenter of that conflict which is the first major war the world had seen and we'll be bringing some of that to you live when it happens. how the white house is saying that u.s. president donald trump and turkish leader red chip type one who you just saw there in those live pictures from paris of had discussions on how to respond to the
7:03 pm
killing of journalists. at the meeting over dinner on saturday night follows revelations that turkey has shared or dio recordings now of last moments with its allies and leaders in saudi arabia and sources say officials who listened to those recordings were quote horrified by their contents when had previously said the operation was ordered in riyadh at the highest levels the u.s. is saying the killing is an internal matter but along with france has said saudi arabia needs to shed more light on what happened and they're warning that the case cannot destabilize the middle east region. we have two correspondents covering all angles of this story for us andrew symonds is outside the saudi consulate in istanbul but first let's go to hashem who is live in paris turkish president richard type one was was pushing for that all important meeting with the president
7:04 pm
when he got it on saturday night. indeed hasn't he got what he wanted i mean from the pictures released by the. president's office you can see what looks like a cordial meeting feminist sources took about losses for about forty five minutes during the dinner offered by president mark rounds of the were attending the one hundredth anniversary of the end of the first world war and the case of it was definitely on top of the agenda now very different sources are saying that they'd talked about the murder and about the possible response that would be taken by the americans to that case that what we're seeing here has it is basically there is a momentum which is building up the e.u. for example which was tightlipped at the very beginning of the case now is speaking
7:05 pm
as one voice saying that any decision to be taken in the future when it comes to slamming sanctions stopping arms deals will be taken you need now honestly within all the members particularly the key members. germany france the u.k. italy and spain now it remains to be seen what trump and. spoke about in particular but it seems that they're the way they are talking about the recordings shared with nose of the key allies in the west an indication is now that turkey is pushing for building up and international bloc against saudi arabia now today president mark crone president trump the emir of qatar the chancellor i'm going to murder president putin shuttles to have lunch around the same table that could be also an opportunity for some further
7:06 pm
discussion on the sidelines of most of the leaders. do attend the lunch but from a turkish perspective it's quite obvious that definitely going now towards building up support that we remains to be seen whether turkey will be able first of all before building bridges with this allies to narrow some of the differences he's been facing over the last few years with it's been the united states of america. it's the first time turkey has officially acknowledged the existence of recordings related to the murder of journalist jamal khashoggi at the saudi consulate in istanbul last month and the timing could not have been more telling just before stepping on a flight to paris president. with field has shared the recordings with the u.s. saudi arabia friends germany and the u.k.
7:07 pm
it was a move designed to put further pressure on the international community and the u.s. in particular to take concrete action against syria these we have given the recordings to saudi arabia the americans the british the germans to everyone they've listened to the conversations on those recordings they know what's being said there's no point in distorting this fact amongst the fifteen they know who the murderer is or the murderers are in the saudi arabian administration can succeed in bringing this to light by making the fifteen speak. the turkish president did not say exactly what was the recordings but accuse the saudis of stalling the investigation and called on the kingdom to identify these killers. announcement would not have gone unnoticed as leaders gather to commemorate the hundredth anniversary of the end of the first world war us president donald trump and french president even well micron had their own agenda to deal with trying to
7:08 pm
overcome differences about european defense spending but the journalist death was not ignored they agreed saudi arabia must provide more details about his murder. a former saudi spy chief says the kingdom would never agree to an international investigation. the kingdom is browed with leaders. it will never accept. foreign interference in that says as other countries have refused to allow. international tribunals to do this you need horrific that have happened either on their soil or elsewhere committed by their citizens how do you do your system is. running. its course. police have now under the search for this body it's widely suspected
7:09 pm
his remains were dissolved in acid now what would be next we're basically talking about different scenarios the us for example could consider different series of sanctions targeting the perpetrators of the killing of jamal khashoggi of the a you is discussing further issues like for example stopping selling what persons to the saudis despite the fact that we're talking about an industry which has us to make it out dozens of billions of dollars now what is near is that all the parties are suggesting that it's about time to put more political pressure on assad eurabia to end the conflict of yemen so basically we're talking about the model. has suddenly turned into an international crisis that could in a way or another reshape saudi arabia's foreign policy and this explains why we're getting this angry reaction from the saudi government particular from the former
7:10 pm
intelligence chief to kill faceless saying that his country with jets and a push for an international inquiry into the. house right hashem thanks very much hashem how about a life force in paris while andrew simmons is standing by in istanbul and andrey as we just been hearing there from hashem. turkey one ng very much to keep up the pressure on saudi arabia and the united states over this but where does this leave its own investigation right now. well it leaves it's an investigation has them exactly where it was left at the point whereby the declaration was made by the turkish president that this is the main evidence record that evidence it's on the table now in the most really the most act way possible with all world leaders present it was highlighted it couldn't have been more profound in its delivery and now the question is what action do you intend to take
7:11 pm
that question isn't just posed to donald trump but also to the european leaders there as hashem has been explaining and now the key word his key would have said momentum and that's what it's all about now everyone diplomatically recognizes that he's played a smart card by acting in the way he has because president one now can stand back somewhat and wait for the response not just from the united states in terms of what action it intends to take but also from its allies and we're talking here about such interests as arms sales which was a profound aspect to the initial response from donald trump going back more than a month after the murder arms sales not only of that political links and also perhaps very strongly the commercial ties that the west has with
7:12 pm
saudi arabia how will they all be affected will there be a halfway house could there be a whole range of sanctions including calling off a corporation between the united states and saudi arabia over nuclear power well these are all on the table but it would seem now that that momentum that that's being produced is going to deliver something in the way of action and it really is it would seem from the diplomatic people you speak to involved in this that this is a worst case scenario for saudi arabia in that. we have everyone together talking and now having to form a plan of action because you can actually take some observations from the human rights sector on this is a big body of opinion amongst people involved in international humanitarian law and they go it goes like this that really what's been happening is saudi arabia has been hoping for some sort of p.r. solution on the part of the united states to actually sort of condemn what's
7:13 pm
happened and then come up with some sort of beyond a condemnation some sort of plan now that is according to the human rights activists i've spoken to more about the issue of resolving things and making things go back to where they were given a bit of time but the what would suffer in all of this would would be the issue of human rights something the felt passionate about that could be the losing factor at the end game in this situation if there is some form of cover up some stuff or of halfway house which most people feel that could be the case turkey wants a solution could that solution be a three quarter way house some sort of deal the point is it's going on and it's going to be going on in a much more serious way now than perhaps before anderson is live for us in thanks andy. oh we have plenty more ahead on news hour. french president emmanuel
