with every. new yorkers are very receptive to al-jazeera because it is such an international city they're very interested that global perspective that al-jazeera provides. it is unacceptable. that we continue to uncover cyber crimes committed by china against america and other nations stealing trade and technology secrets worldwide chinese hackers are accused of global economic espionage. santa maria and this is the world news from al-jazeera sunday's presidential
12:24 am
election in democratic republic of congo has been delayed for one week the election commissioner says it's technical problems donald trump defending his decision to pull american troops from syria saying it's time for others to fight in the middle east. frankly we are relieved that harvey weinstein failed in his efforts to avoid accountability for his actions and a new york judge refuses to drop charges against the movie mogul who sparked the global movement against sexual harassment. developing news out of the united states where it has been announced criminal charges against two hacker who allegedly worked for the chinese government the justice department brought it accuse them of waging a cyber campaign that focused on the large scale theft of commercial intellectual property the campaign allegedly targeted entities across the u.s.
12:25 am
europe and asia all in breach of chinese bilateral international commitments they're also accused of stealing data from a hundred thousand u.s. navy personnel and spying on nasa and the u.s. department of energy look. it is unacceptable. that we continue to uncover cyber crime committed by china against america and other nations in two thousand and fifteen china promised to stop stealing trade secrets and other confidential business information through computer hacking with the intent of providing competitive advantage to companies in the commercial sector but the activity alleged in this indictment violates the commitment that china made that was a commitment they made to members of the international community to the united states to the g. twenty and to apec now we want china to cease its illegal cyber activities and honor its commitment to the international community but the evidence suggests
12:26 am
that china may not intend to abide by its promises more on this with money held in washington d.c. hi patty these are pretty big his actions and when we're talking navy personnel nasa department of energy is a big u.s. so when is that asians. it isn't it's also the lot of private companies now they wouldn't detail exactly who was hacked because they said they didn't want to further damage their reputation but they said they were working with him basically summed it up as it's the who's who of american companies who have been targeted so it is a pretty sweeping allegation but what does it mean for these two. chinese nationals well probably not much other than limit in the places they can go on vacation it's unlikely that china is going to hand them over to the u.s. for any sort of trial so that as long as they have void going to any country with an extradition treaty with the u.s. they probably will stay out of u.s. custody the bigger thing is what this plot basically says and that is that these
12:27 am
hackers were able to get into what something called a managed service provider f.b.i. director i think explained it best by saying it's like if you think of someone breaking into one home well this is if you broke into the supervisor of a apartment complex and got the master key they could break you they could get you into hundreds of not thousands of homes so it's a pretty broad allegation talking about forty five tech companies across twelve countries and they're also not holding back on the tough talk let's hear from the f.b.i. director christopher ray china's goal simply put is to replace the u.s. as the world's leading superpower and they're using illegal methods to get there they're using an expanding set of nontraditional and illegal methods china's state sponsored actors are the most active perpetrators of economic espionage against us in short. to strengthen themselves and to weaken the united states
12:28 am
and while we welcome fair competition we cannot and will not tolerate illegal hacking stealing or cheating. so what this is likely to do is just further increase tensions between the u.s. and china already locked in a trade war and it is having a real world impact we're seeing the dow jones industrial the stock market in the u.s. basically plummeting hundreds of points again this is been consecutive thing this is now the biggest december lost in the u.s. financial markets since the great depression and this is just going to further inject into uncertainty into the concept of what's going to happen for further and you know what investors don't like it's uncertainty they're also now hearing that president trump might actually shut down the government over the border wall so obviously it's going to be a bad day on wall street ok thank you for all the information culhane in washington d.c. . the other breaking news this hour is the presidential election in democratic republic
12:29 am
of congo it has been officially delayed till december thirtieth. but was made in the last hour by the electoral commission president a vote that had been scheduled for sunday but there is of course the above it was a fire that destroyed some of the polling machines and. those elements being blamed for the delay his malcolm where reporting from for us malcolm not entirely unexpected but not what the people obviously would have wanted either. you know was made just a short while ago actually commission building just commission we did the harm. we shouldn't in the country just because of a delay of one week but it's been delayed. in the lead up to the end of president joseph kabila constitutional election it was.
12:30 am
the opposition and rights. constitution. stayed only not in till now. the opposition. say that all of these delays being part of a scheme by in the support of people in our state. moment it would have been delayed and then stuck in election to happen on sunday waiting very much to see what kind of reaction we're going to get from opposition. l.a. one week what sort of mood already in prior to this still are wondering how much the tension was regardless given they've been waiting well two years for this vote . from the tension including being from demonstrations in kinshasa the university campus today students were marching around the field off by police the history of unrest that day one of the students
12:31 am
demonstrated to be not even allowed out of the county but this is a city of about eleven million people a big city in africa and when opposition politicians of the six percent through the streets all bally's you can get crowds of families found even hundreds of thousands of people. sometimes very angry off the bridge the government and demonstrations in the last carefully as have been broken up finally by the police using mind gunfire and the got it would have been a deployment of soldiers here and in some other parts of the country to find out now what your position leaders will say and what that forces will do it's all right lot more reporting to come from malcolm webb in the team and can chancellor in the next few days in fact next week hope to contain. turkey in iran have found to work closer on syria to the u.s.
12:32 am
made its announcement to pull american troops from the country has this report for us from ankara. when iran's president began his visit to turkey there was an unexpected announcement from the white house donald trump ordered u.s. troops stationed in northeast syria to leave. neither haasan were hiding or turkey's president or the gun commented on the u.s. president's tweet instead they stressed their cooperation in the so-called asked to negotiate track talks led by russia. was. there are many steps that turkey and iran can take together to stop the fighting in the region and to establish peace will deepen our cooperation and consultations with iran on regional issues in this direction sudhir about. syria is very important to us and its destiny is in the hands of the syrian people and syria's territorial integrity should be respected by everyone and we two countries fully agree in that regard we will continue cooperation for regional peace and stability
12:33 am
. in iran and turkey don't stand on the same side in syria's war but have been working together in recent days the u.s. and turkey have worked hard improving their strained relationship which some believe was the reason why rouhani made the surprise visit here an isolated iran has always been concerned about keeping turkey close and knowing where its leaders stand. whenever turkey approaches the united states or the units as it approaches to turkey we know that one of the losers of this. of this report will be the iranian state besides turkey there is no one contrary in the region which may cooperate with iran so for them it's quite. the u.s. decision to leave syria was seen as a concession to turkey which has been angered by washington's alliance with the syrian kurdish armed group known as the white p.g.
12:34 am
turkey's president has threatened to cross a border offensive. to target why peachey fighters inside syria simply. we know of none of these in the east of the euphrates in front of us they can dig tunnels if they want they can go on the ground if they want when the time and place calm and they will be buried in the ditches that dog no one should doubt this any turkish military move into syria will likely have to be coordinated with russia they will also have to discuss and decide if the syrian government or the turkish bacteria and rebels will fill the vacuum the us presence in syria was militarily insignificant but it was a deterrent now will the wipe e.g. fight to maintain territory or reengage with damascus to reach some sort of an arrangement to avert military action either by the turkish russian iranian and or syrian army's who controls thirty five percent of syria's territory which is rich
12:35 am
in oil and agriculture is in question but the message from serious power brokers iran russia and turkey is that they will hope to find common ground then after their also as iraq and. still ahead view on al-jazeera hopes the u.s. government says it is sending back some asylum seekers who crossed illegally from mexico and two cities under a state of emergency as protests.
