9:01 pm
just one hundred days to go before break that and to resume on the opposition leader jeremy colvin to trading accusations over the u.k.'s plans to leave europe and protest in hungary they are calling it legalized slavery parliament has approved a bill forcing workers to do overtime. so the word coming out of the united states is that the country is planning to fully withdraw its troops from syria within sixty to one hundred days president donald trump has tweeted along side that saying nice has been defeated and that was the only reason that he was there in the first place they have been at their peak about two thousand u.s. troops on the ground in syria mainly trying to training i should say local forces to fight eisel in recent days though turkey's president reject typo on threaten the new offensive against kurdish forces these are the ones remember that the united states supports in syria's new. wolf if the u.s.
9:02 pm
withdraws it does still have a sizable presence in the region about five thousand two hundred troops over the border in iraq back in april it was the defense secretary james madison who said america wants to maintain a presence in syria until a peace agreement can be reached two in the country's brutal civil war so here is the team on duty on this story james by united nations headquarters in new york will be with you shortly james was standing there with patty culhane in washington d.c. this news broke when we were on the newsgroup about two or three hours ago what's developed since then paddy well what's developed i think is starting to set in people were pretty shocked by this i can tell you that people on capitol hill were given a heads up it seemed at the state department was taken aback even the pentagon we saw secretary jim mattis today me with the vice president he didn't answer any questions about this but he cannot be all that happy about this he's been pushing the president to stay in syria so as you mention the president after all these reports started to leak out that all two thousand u.s.
9:03 pm
troops were going to be pulled back within sixty to one hundred days the president tweeted out we have defeated isis in syria my only reason for being there during the trump presidency so he seemed to be confirming that and since then we've heard from the department of defense a tick them a good couple of hours to come up with the statement and they are kind of contradicting the president dana white the chief spokeswoman saying the campaign against isis isn't over we've taken the territory but the fight continues basically they're going to start returning troops home not saying how many or when for force protection but basically said they are transitioning to the next phase the problem is nobody knows what the next phase is going to look like even at the state department just a matter of days ago the representative who is part of the who leads to the american side of the coalition's if eat eisel he had a much different picture of what the next phase was going to be here's what brett mcgurk had to say. it's very same americans will remain on the ground after the physical to feed a caliphate until we have the pieces in place to ensure that that defeat isn't or.
9:04 pm
so what exactly is going to happen next well we were hoping to get some clarity from the state department they were supposed to have a briefing in just a couple of hours time but after this news broke they abruptly canceled the briefing without any explanation we've heard from some senators on capitol hill those influential with foreign policy and some of them even close to the president saying this is a horrible idea this is a big mistake the president is to change course but in the way the system works in the u.s. the commander in chief says the troops are coming home they're coming help ok interesting developments patty callahan in washington via thank you let's go to james by the united nations does that surprise that patty was talking about james extend to where you were surprised by everyone and certainly from u.s. allies there is surprise some confusion and also dismay at this certainly the u.k. defense secretary has said that i still has not in his estimation yet been defeated
9:05 pm
i've also been speaking to the head of the security council committee that is the person for the international body the u.n. that actually tracks eisel and he's the kazakh. omar off he told me no eisel has not yet been defeated in syria it's all me going operation and he stands by his latest report on this in which he says he believes there are between twenty and thirty thousand fighters from leisel in iraq and syria a number of the us is close allies that will be affected by this is israel i caught up with the israeli ambassador. there are reports that president trump is planning to pull all the u.s. troops out of syria in you were assessment is that threat from i saw in syria finished and are you concerned about israel's security if those troops leave syria . u.s. decision. specked any decision made by the administration we have our concerns
9:06 pm
about syria or the presence of a vineyard troops in thea if you do what every with every to protect our people regardless if you have american troops russian troops or any other nation to continue to follow a policy of not allowing the iranians to build their base of next door borders all these isolate defeated in syria in israel's estimation wonderful show we we can tell that they i think has been defeated in thea you can argue whether it's completed or not but. we can there agree with the international community there that the fight against i think has been successful these really ambassador now we have been talking all about isilon fighting eisel and president trump says that the only reason the u.s. troops were there in syria but clearly their presence i think had other roles as well one of those was putting pressure on the assad regime the u.n.
9:07 pm
trying to pursue talks in fact we're going to hear from the special envoy stefan de mistura at the u.n. in twenty four hours time and the fact those u.s. troops were there meant that assad didn't control all of syria and he was being told i think the message was to the talks negotiate and maybe all of syria will be unified again of course the other thing that the u.s. troops were doing were helping their allies on the ground and in many ways that's mainly the kurds that i think will now be feel completely abandoned and consider their next move and the other thing of course that the u.s. troops were doing is part of that big trumpet ministration plan to constrain. iran there are rainy and troops in syria now there are no longer u.s. troops the iranian troops may spread into different areas so it is actually a blow to one of the other aims of the trumpet ministration the winners in all this are iran or russia and turkey and a lot of speculation here about any recent talks that took place between turkey and
9:08 pm
the us particularly with the khashoggi affair still around people that wondering whether there was some sort of grand bargain that has been struck on this speculating but no facts at all other than this which is to tell you that new agreement for missiles between the u.s. and turkey has been signed with the u.s. providing turkey patriot missiles that's interesting excellent stuff james bays at the united nations thank you so it's tireless together now with lawrence korb joining us from washington d.c. is a former u.s. assistant secretary of defense our senior fellow at the center for american progress lawrence everyone seems surprised but i'm actually reading some notes from you here saying that you're actually not terribly surprised by this news talk us through that. well basically president trump campaigned and said he would get our troops out of there last year he wanted to announce it he was talked out of it by people like secretary of defense mattis for general mcmaster who was then his
9:09 pm
national security adviser general kelly who was the white house chief of staff and secretary of state rex tillerson well most all except for secretary mabus they're all gone the other saying is that basically he is trying to in my view distract attention for all the domestic problems he has at home and so by announcing this which is very popular with his base he campaigned on it and most americans are tired of the wars in the middle east this will help them at home what has been pointed out by your correspondent this is not good for the united states is not good for our allies and it's not good for peace in the in the region right so it's basically a it's a good political move for don't trump any president who can bring troops home that looks good for them is it as simple as that for him to signing off and saying they're coming home because i do know it's there is a lot of opposition from some prominent u.s. senate has already the likes of marco rubio lindsey graham as well no i mean
9:10 pm
he has power he's the commander in chief he can order the forces to go and there's a big debate about whether he can send them into a war without congress what's bringing them home they have no problem i mean you may remember we withdrew all of our troops from iraq back in two thousand and eleven there was no there are a lot of people in congress opposed to that but there was nothing they could do no this is his thing just like he can order the troops to the border and bring them back from the border the idea and this is what donald trump is certainly tweeted about but the idea that i still has been defeated in syria that would seem premature it wouldn't. well it is i mean we took back there we took back rock and coal bonnie to the cities but there's still maybe twenty thousand of them in the in the area and that's one of the reasons he was going mensa stay in there by his team last year and the other was because of the iranian president's we have no
9:11 pm
leverage now in any of the negotiations as to the future of syria or unschooled it's always a pleasure talking to you thank you for joining us thank you for having me. here's what's ahead. another leak from turkish media as more images of the children but. also why frey's book is in the spotlight over your right to privacy. manchester united calls upon a club hero to save it will tell you more about the new boss a little later when. the governor of the capital of democratic republic of congo has ordered a stop to all presidential campaigning in the capital. cited security reasons for his decision on wednesday he says there's evidence people are preparing for confrontations and just days before voting takes place on sunday more from

catherine sawyer. being called. trying to make he way to the ground when the bulk of the way. it's supposed to be fine on. a convoy where out by you want when people here aren't they will not back down that we would want. iraq and it was all come about. by the level of cory by the governor they spending all all right and. i think information they have. really. a lot of people that are. not given it by the government. he need a lot of the right he absolutely gone out whereby you. don't want.
9:13 pm
to. bring in their one where you don't think they want to ground and. then. very many people. research analyst at the risk consultancy group very risky kroft she told state of unrest in democratic republic of congo is most likely to persist despite the outcome of the elections. i think what we're seeing here is a very clear indication of can be listened tensions he intends to be able to influence the results of these elections on sunday through from behind the scenes so he has stepped back and he's appointed this successor shattering who is meant to take the reins from him at least until twenty twenty three i think what he's trying to do by for example the governor of can of withdrawing the ability for you to hold
9:14 pm
this this demonstration today is is he's he's really trying to target for you loose campaign because he sees for you as the main contender the main contender to actually legitimately win this vote share that shutter is intended to take from them i think there's a lot of understanding about the way that is trying to manipulate this vote on sunday i think there is there is still an element of hope there is still an element that for you lou or to the end of the couple to be able to succeed and to win but ultimately these two main scenarios that we have various mental craftsy are firstly chattery winning and outright and secondly a scenario where shattering. is meant to win this vote but he actually is it has to co-opt opposition members into a coalition government both scenarios will involve great unrest and without doubt a contested result and definitely with with anything that's going on in d c there
9:15 pm
is a regional element i think in particular we're looking to the east we're looking to rwanda we're looking to burn date for their reactions to what's going on already we've seen a step up of troop action on the border with india on the border with south kivu as well we see we see in rwanda there have been just yesterday there was an attack on rebel militias coming over from d r c into a wound and they in the process of doing that killed two congolese army members i think this is the main issue that we have to see that anything that goes on that affects the instability in the east is going to spill over into the into the regional neighbors i think at the moment rwanda burundi will be watching what's going on and can just a very carefully today. former first lady years wanted for questioning in south africa gross mcgarvie is accused of hitting a woman with an electrical cord in a hotel room in johannesburg last year. said she suffered a serious head injury the wife of former president robert mugabe says it was all self-defense despite no longer being first lady grace mccartney is still protected

a state that acts completely arbitrarily the rule of law and no longer exists in the hands of hitmen it's like an orioles novel where they speak in newspeak where war means peace and freedom means slavery that's what happened here large protests are no longer allowed civic and business leaders along with mediators from the catholic church have all pleaded with president or to. turned to the negotiating table despite international condemnation and sanctions imposed by the united states there's no sign the president or figure is willing to accept early elections a condition demanded by the national opposition human rights observers board the political crisis will continue to deepen pushing the country further toward a situation similar to that of venezuela for activists like an am i to get aid to however what matters is continuing the resistance against the government in my mouth. we're going to continue until daniel ortega is gone they've never add when

9:30 pm
congo where the governor says there's evidence people are preparing for confrontations just days before voting takes place opposition candidate march in full a i had been due to hold a rally. and police in south africa. we have issued an arrest warrant for zimbabwe's former first lady grace mugabe the wife of the former president robert mugabe is accused of his model in johannesburg last year. more on our top story the u.s. plan to withdraw troops from syria and we've got a few from turkey. in istanbul the decision to withdraw u.s. troops from syria coincides with turkey's announcement that it plans a cross border operation into syria particularly into the area where u.s. troops are stationed and the area under the control of the wipe e.g. a kurdish armed group that turkey considers a terrorist organization but that armed group has been an ally of the united states the white p.g. has so far not made any statement or given any reaction to the u.s.
9:31 pm
withdrawal announcement but clearly this is being seen as some sort of green light from the president to turkey to launch a cross a border operation now the question is will the turkish military go ahead with its threats and what exactly will happen to this enclave in northeastern syria that is under the control of the y.p. g are the russians the syrian government the iranian government they are going to lay claim to this territory as well but like i mentioned the decision to withdraw u.s. troops is linked to turkey's threats because just a few days ago turkey's foreign minister said ankara believes that trump is considering leaving syria and are gone president are gone said that trump supports his plans for an operation so this issue was being discussed between the turkish and the and us presidents a phone call and just hours after
9:32 pm
a gun announced that cross border operation what we've been seeing over the past few days are intensive contacts between these two nato allies these two nato allies whose relationship. really has been strained in recent years particularly over the u.s. support for the white p.g. the us eating out to turkey and the u.s. special envoy saying just yesterday that we understand turkey's concerns and we are taking steps to ease those concerns for the united states it is much more important to laurent turkey away from its alliance with russia and iran if it is to implement its strategy in the region then to keep really two thousand troops on the ground in territory in east syria so we have to wait to see whether or not turkey is going to go ahead with plans to enter the northeast syria and what is going to happen in that corner of that country. one hundred days to go now before britain is due to
9:33 pm

9:35 pm
he's not the only person who's worried about the prospect five of britain's biggest business organizations have written to the government saying they're watching on with horror as as they see it politicians engage in factional fighting rather than doing what's best for britain well on wednesday the european commission did outline some of its own measures that it's going to take to try to limit the damage if there were no deal breck's it next year it says that the e.u. will continue to allow u.k. based financial companies to access european markets for a twelve month period and similarly it says that british flights will be able to continue to use the so-called single european sky agreement an air traffic control system for twelve months that also extends some aviation licenses but i think that there is an admission on both sides that there will be an impact as world leaders

vie for a say in europe's energy market one country is caught in the middle denmark's consent is required before the final section of a controversial russian pipeline can be completed that opinion there is divided as well for an answer has more from copenhagen. a new pipeline which could double the amount of gas russia delivers directly to germany has kept world leaders busy arguing if europe might become too dependent on russia so about thirty thousand pipes here in carson but in this harbor down in sweden near the danish border where departure stuart the economic benefits of the pipeline construction outweigh the concerns i have a course on the people here in karl's home think it's a great idea they're happy with it it creates a lot of jobs but in the rest of sweden they're afraid and they said if you let the russians into your harbor the pipeline is divided europe and its allies into those who are for and those against in september u.s.

9:38 pm
dearest and closest friends denmark doesn't need the gas its energy policy calls for self-sufficiency by the year two thousand and fifty but it doesn't want to damage relations with its neighboring countries either this is one of the major foreign policy decisions since the cold war it is because it. we somehow signal if we belong still belong to the american camp or more you german following germany so therefore it's it's a very important decision politicians in denmark are looking to brussels for an agreement that she'll start country against the critics of the pipeline with their skinny navy never supporting the project they feel left alone in this decision and their response has been to play for time. tired of waiting the company building the pipeline has proposed a different route that runs just outside danish territorial waters where commercial project is a highway of gas that is going to secure europe with
9:39 pm
a supply of gas that is needed in the future construction of the pipeline is supposed to be completed by late next year and those building it seem determined to continue no matter how the politics play out here announced al-jazeera copenhagen denmark. the most popular video blogger in chechnya faces deportation from poland he fled his home town years ago after receiving death threats from government leaders but now he may be actually forced to go back home human rights activists say it's a situation thousands of church and are in fact dealing with. has more. to do rock one of his an online sensation but offline he fears for his life a popular blogger from chechnya has been living in exile in poland for the last three years he's terrified of what will happen if he's forced to return home not searches you want to be back in chechnya just the very thought of being deported to russia it's something i try to not even think about in august one of his you tube
