rises in government corruption. as the russian orthodox church celebrates christmas it faces its biggest split and for centuries of ukrainian church acquires independence. a disappearing sound at the desert has given a lifeline thanks to the internet. national security advisor says u.s. troops will not leave syria until i saw was defeated in the region john bolton was speaking in israel where there's been concern over president tunnel trumps abrupt announcement in december that american forces are to pull out alton says there is no timetable for the withdrawal which was initially expected to take weeks at a press conference with israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu he also said he doesn't want turkey to take military action against kurdish fighters in syria who backed by u.s. forces. we're going to be discussing the president's decision to withdraw but to do
2:02 am
so from northeast syria in a way that make sure that isis is defeated and is not able to. revive itself and become a threat again and to make sure that the. defense of israel and their friends in the region is absolutely assured decker has more from lester islam not much concrete came out of that press conference of course the two countries reiterating the incredible support for each other john bolton saying that the troop withdrawal would happen but not without ensuring that israel's offensive israel's security was maintained this is of course going to be top of the agenda israel's main concerns inside syria is the presence of iranian backed militias is the presence of hezbollah and any potential weapons that can reach the group and can threaten israel security now the israeli prime minister will be taking john bolton
2:03 am
up to the occupied golan heights. and of course will be keen to show him the operation that israel's been undertaking there against tunnels that were dug by hezbollah also a message there in that press conference calling on the international community saying it was time for them to recognize the gotan highs of course that is right occupied after the one nine hundred sixty seven war so syria and iran the threat of iran will be top of the agenda of course bolton looking to reassure israel that the troop withdrawal is not to going to be a threat to israel's security of course the timing of that now very much up in there i think no one really knows exactly how and when that is going to happen. john chance is a u.s. foreign policy expert and a former senior congressional and pfizer he joins us via skype from vail in colorado thank you very much for your time so there seem to be a mixed messages coming from the top administration when he abruptly made this
2:04 am
announcement that cynic that so many people off guard he also said that the basically the troops are going to home in thirty days and now that language has evolved to well not right now or not in a hurry what what is the message john bolton is supposed to be delivering to israel well the number one problem is the trump policy of carrying out foreign policy be a tweet has real world consequences and the impulsive decision to pull troops out of syria has startled our allies in the region and even led to the resignation of a u.s. defense secretary so i'm sure a ambassador bolton is there in an attempt to assure partners in the region dad even though this announcement was announced in a rather cavalier way. it is the plan to the attention of the administration to not carry out this withdrawal in the same way it was announced and the hope i would
2:05 am
imagine from ambassador bolton viewpoint is to try to reduce the tremendous level of concern in the region which is totally understandable so how is donald trump the trump administration viewed and israel i mean in their foreign policy it's fair to say is erratic i believe if you just look at the past two years there are those in israel who. by and large support trumps decision to switch the u.s. embassy or to move the u.s. embassy to jerusalem there are many in israel who support president support of the u.s. defense cooperation there in the u.s. defense relationship however i would imagine that there are those in israel who are growing tired of what seems to be
2:06 am
a administration that is viewed as very erratic and at times in polls of it's a tremendous distraction when you're basically seeking to carry out the everyday objectives of the us israel relationship relationship that goes back decades with the relationship that's where the most part been very good and very solid and benjamin netanyahu lobby has elections coming and he's also an facing corruption charges is there a way that he says that and this is it somehow to his benefit. there may be an attempt by prime minister netanyahu to affirm u.s. support for israel right now during this election season but the israeli electorate is a pretty sophisticated electorate they're going to judge prime minister netanyahu. shoot your success this will be
2:07 am
a referendum on prime minister netanyahu. previous terms and his current book formant as prime minister how he chooses or chooses not to present the u.s. israel relationship i don't think it's going to make a very large impact on the minds of voters and if you're on a chance joining us from a colorado thank you very much. thank you so after israel bolton will travel to turkey ankara considers many of the u.s. backed kurdish fighters to be so-called terrorists and wants them removed from areas near its border with syria has more from gaza have close to the turkey syria border a spokesman for president. said to both come and say tuckey has absolutely no problem with a relation in the end of the problem of turkey is with two particular groups the y.p. d m p k k which turkey recognizes the terrorist organizations and says it's easy
2:08 am
to be disrespectful full time to say the been ripped resumption by these two organizations who are the spokesman pulled out of east of schools we've seen a situation where there's been a regional policy to try and feel a possible void of the u.s. troop withdrawal with countries rushing in to move to mend relationships with assad and reopening off embassies by the united arab emirates and before him for example hold on to put in check untouched these influence in syria once the u.s. troops withdrawal but also has been criticised by city on the opposition groups who called was assad. with his good to buy a falzon or even a million leaders across the world. terry says an alleged al qaeda operative accused of planning the bombing of an american warship has died in our strike in

2:10 am
so the president gives into their demands now we've seen people being separated from the crowd into protests using live ammunition and tear gas something that has happened over and over again during the previous protests and certainly something that has happened today people have been the police have been using tear gas and live in munitions to disperse protesters foreign governments have said that the police are using excessive force against protesters who are armed making their demands known to the government and to the world now opposition figures are also come out and said that they understand why people are demonstrating in the streets and that they are lending their support to these people but for testing and that they also want the president to step down and hand over power to an interim council it's not clear how that would happen but the thing is the president has said that he's not going to step down he did offer some kind of economic concessions he said that he was going to improve the living wages for civil workers and he's going to increase their salaries he also promised that he was going to look into the matters of the protesters and how they were being handled by the police amnesty international says at least thirty seven people have been killed that was within
2:11 am
the first week of the protests and opposition figures have been saying more and more people have been killed since then it's not clear yet how if people have died but we do know is that eleven munition and tear gas has been used to disperse protesters and that people have been arrested demonstrations in the streets it's not clear where this would go and how it would end the government says that they're going to try to ease the situation for them people are saying that they will continue to protest so sudan seems to be in for a long haul between the government and the protesters. election officials and democratic republic of congo same voters will have to wait another week for the poor mary results of the presidential election. to choose a successor for president joseph kabila was due to be declared on sunday and only half of the vote remain uncounted. the head of the electoral commission. says he would not be rushed into making an announcement preliminary results were meant to be declared on sunday instead the people at the d c were told to wait a few more days. with the police or provisional results won't happen today

2:18 am
thousand government workers without pay. i can relate and i'm sure that the people that are for the receiving end will make adjustments they always do. still make you just people understand exactly what's going on but many of those people won't be receiving a paycheck many of those people agree one hundred percent with what i'm doing the show is good and tomorrow and it could also go on for a long time it depends is really dependent the democrats are bill us on to has more from washington d.c. . talks continue here in washington trying to break this stalemate on this government shutdown but there is no indication that they need any agreement will be reached before the weekend is over both sides are digging in president donald trump still demanding that he gets more than five billion dollars to build the border wall democrats saying they haven't changed their position they are saying they'll
2:19 am
give the president some money less than five billion but not for the border wall just for general border security so this is where things stand at this point president donald trump himself even said he does not expect the talks late sunday to lead to any sort of agreement at all and he is still threatening to declare a national emergency that would enable him powers to perhaps go around the congress get other money to build the wall in itself but there are legal experts that say even if he was to declare a national emergency on the border many people say that it's unclear if that even would give him the money that he would need to move forward so it is really a stalemate here in washington with no in sight to this government shutdown there are talks christian church if you crane has formally split from its for legislator ship and russia and to create granting its independence was handed over and the

turkish city of istanbul ending a relationship that dates back more than three centuries this muhammad reports this decision underscores the deepening tensions between moscow and kiev. oh for for all of you the first the leader of the eastern orthodox church and a man at the center of what's being described as potentially one of the biggest rifts in christianity in recent times. with his signature on saturday he officially split most of ukraine's orthodox churches from centuries of russian jurisdiction. slovo or set your motives on sunday during a service in the turkish city of istanbul. to mark the orthodox feast day of the pippin the the document for the separation also known as the thomas was officially handed over to the leader of the now independent ukrainian orthodox church is his most watching from the side petro poroshenko the ukrainian president he's pushed for ukraine's orthodox churches to split from what he and others have described as
2:21 am
russian influence and propaganda ukraine's churches have been under pressure to sever ties since the country became independent after the breakup of the soviet union in one thousand nine hundred ninety one. and that pressure has been getting stronger since russia annexed crimea in two thousand and fourteen ukraine imposed martial law in november saying it feared a full scale invasion after russia captured three of its vessels in the current straight up to muslim the us says if a fish the ship and the toll most for us is actually another act of proclaiming ukraine's independence it will complete the assertion of independence of the ukrainian state strengthen religious freedom and enter confessional peace it will strengthen the rights and freedoms of citizens. in moscow political analysts say this is as much about politics as it is about religion and the impact of a church but at the own relations between the us and the crane is a working ofo but both the positions of moscow but their ticket. in ukraine and.
2:22 am
the long awaited on the independence of getting on orthodoxy and over ukrainian states from russian influence in general of the officer to the split has been largely boycotted by ukraine's largest orthodox church which remains loyal to russia oh moscow in the russian branch of the church have also cut ties with istanbul which is regarded as the center of the eastern orthodox faith. it's unclear how all this will ultimately play out but for many in ukraine the creation of an orthodox church independent from moscow is a momentous step toward ukraine's political independence from russia. moscow. don johnson is a resident fellow at the center for transatlantic relations it johns hopkins university he joins us live from washington d.c. we appreciate your time very much so when russia did an expose on absolutely russia annexed crimea was some sort of split or
2:23 am
a tension in the church and evitable was something like this it's almost inevitable . you know you hate to say inevitable but i think it made it much more highly more likely and don't forget the invasion of the done by us the russian invasion by putin is essentially been a failure it's galvanized ukraine's maturity as an independent state we've seen now that it's even galvanized the secession of a long time branch of russian orthodoxy into an independent church and this is a major major event not only religiously but politically you know we in the west we take we often don't take issues of faith and religion seriously enough but this is an issue of faith and religion that has a major geographical consequences do explain the our religion and politics is sturrock lee had been intertwined in russia. sure sure the orthodox church compared to say catholicism or western proselytism is very had the church is very
2:24 am
close to the state and russia's emergence as a great power has been supported and aided by the russian orthodox church so putin has the use of the church most recently but not just wouldn't as an arm russian foreign policy it's for the orthodox bishops for example have praised the war blessed missiles recently you may may have seen that and so by breaking away they are ukrainian branch from the russian church you're essentially frustrating and dividing a major instrument iran putin's rule and putin's attempt to spread russian influence overseas so this is a major major issue and it helps show ukraine's independence and maturity as an independent country what might the further implications or impact of this be a going forward. well there are a number of them one of which is that other churches in the balkans in particular that are affiliated and close to moscow may well i mean serbia in particular may
2:25 am
well push for independence like the would be reigning church is it is doing but second you're likely to see a very bumpy road ahead first of all power center who's been helped by this he's now second in the polls after being trailing much more broadly he's likely to get a bump up in the election was coming this year and that is going to help ukraine resist the russian influence even further but he's got to be careful there that he had the temptation to interfere in the internal affairs of the ukrainian church new ukrainian church will be strong and finally i would say there's a high likelihood that russia and the russian church will stage provocations against the ukrainian now independent church there will be fights over money there will be fights over property there will be fights over over the churches themselves and already the russian media operation the russian media machine there showing a lot of of propagandistic films talking about harassment of russia not orthodox
2:26 am
believers showing continuing their narrative of discrimination against ethnic russian speakers very little of that is true but it has a willing audience at home in moscow where people see this as another attempt to hurt russian influence abroad and we really appreciate your expertise on this thank you great greek orthodox christians and palestine are also celebrating christmas but this year's festivities have been marred by demonstrations and some boycotting a visit at the orthodox patriarch insurance along to bethlehem jesters are angry that he's been selling charges land to israelis harry fossett was at the protests in the occupied west bank. this is a familiar pilgrimage for the orthodox patriarch of jerusalem he comes here to bethlehem every year for the orthodox christmas to mark christ's birth at the church of the holy it's a pity and usually he would come here on foot proceeded by marching bands or scouts he would be met by officials from the bethlehem and surrounding governments. manger
2:27 am
square would usually be thronged with people to welcome him but this year it's very different there is a group within the orthodox community who want this visit boycotted on political grounds because of his policy of selling church lands which regularly find their way into israeli jewish hands this year the municipality has both of bethlehem and the surrounding cities have decided to join not boycott actually with our position famous abilities we are not throwing the butts bit in we're coming there but there isn't all that because. actually there are there is documented ses that he's selling. their hands on the properties of the office but real whereas in most years main just right would be occupied by people welcoming and celebrating christmas with the patriarch here we see a small group of protesters he's managed to get their way into the square past what
2:28 am
has been extremely heavy security around the square in all the surrounding streets along which the patriarch i was just was meant to come and progress to the church of the holy city and we've been speaking to members of the orthodox community here while some very much support the boycott who say he is not welcome invest and others feel that politics should be kept separate from a religious festival such as this we are against sending glance no matter who or when or where but this is not the day this is the day of christmas this is the day of celebrations. we have three hundred sixty four days we can the opposite we can put us three can do many things was a protest as had been chanting traitor in the direction of the patriarch elsewhere in manger square there are people beating drums and dancing celebrating with him this christmas day the division that that man was talking about between politics
2:29 am
and religion doesn't really appear to be attaining here today the politics of the policies of the orthodox church in israel are very much opposed by many here in the occupied west bank and even on this holy day it is really affecting how it is being celebrated that francis says asking european leaders tetras the plight of forty nine refugees and migrants stranded off the coast of malta that of the roman catholic church has urged the member states to allow them to land on their shores and reports. in front of an audience of tens of thousands gathered at st peter's square pope francis asked the european union leaders to stop bickering and allow two humanitarian ships with refugees and migrants rescued at sea to dock now by ricky jordan e for several days forty nine people rescued in the mediterranean sea have been on board to enjoy ships seeking a safe port where they can disembark. thirty two of those rescued at sea are on the

we had hot times went up a storm and there was heavy wind and high waves and when everybody was afraid and unsecure and unsafe. those onboard the two ships include people from different countries many are seasick after stormy crossings. but i make a heartfelt appeal to european leaders that they show some concrete solidarity with respect to these people. both italy and malta have closed their ports to boats who've rescued refugees and migrants from the sea. their stance follows the hard line taken by many e.u. countries on immigration. the netherlands and germany say they will take some of those on the ships but for now all these people can do is hope and pray that a message from the head of the roman catholic church will allow them to set foot on land paul trotter gian al jazeera. annual global golden globe

2:37 am
started early last year and washington has levies on a number of chinese products arguing the u.s. was getting a bad deal beijing retaliated leading to a series of tit for tat terrify x that's helped to spark volatility on global markets as uncertainty mounts over what will happen next between the world's two largest economies are at scott is a senior international economist at the economic policy institute a nonprofit think tank he joins us via skype from bethesda maryland we appreciate your time very much so there's a lot of things on the table there's tariffs and intellectual property there's a lot of issues that these two countries have with each other what is the priority for the trump administration when i think the reality of mr lay size are these the trade representative will be leading the negotiations in china is to. obtain the relief well the technology isn't he wants to stop clinton from stealing technology from us companies the west and force us copyrights and patents and he
2:38 am
wants to limit china's investments in the high tech industries of the future i think is see this is a really about that kind of change they say he's become a force very slight there i was cisco to ask what leverage do they have to actually accomplish that. they have very little they do have access but we do control is access to the u.s. economy and something that china very much wants and needs exports to the u.s. may come much bigger part of the chinese economy than do u.s. exports to china so we do have leverage on the trade side but it's very difficult unfortunate to open is market if china does not want to there are a large powerful country there used to controlling what goes on within their borders who has been hurt the most by this so far well of course taking the long term view the united states has a massive trade deficit with china shown that just in the last to since i was in
2:39 am
two thousand and one to seventeen years or so and united states has lost about three point four million jobs due to growing trade deficits in china more recently of the the terrible war since don ho took office has i think certainly hurt. some companies that are invested their voice in a sharp fall and is profits but apple does all his production in china and atlanta and other offshore locations it has what happens to china's proper tests sorry but what happens to apple's profits has very little impact on the domestic economy it may affect the stock market but that's different than talking about jobs or real production here in the united states at this continues to drag on what effects might it continue to have on the global markets. well what has happened already is
2:40 am
that china has lowered the value of its currency about ten percent this really is based on the whole they've also put limits on imports as a result of u.s. exports to china are down trade deficit which it is. it's actually backfire it's been bad for the domestic economy the deficit in china is growing faster than deficit and the world as a whole well i think also this kind of uncertainty has certainly consumated to the downfall in the stock market i think as a great concern to the president he's put very valuable in the rise in the market since he was elected and we see a tremendous decline and over twenty percent now i think just of last three months and he's very much i think concerned about that and certainly this is what was the chaos in washington exhibits to this point in the market in the last few months mr robert scott joining us thanks for your expertise thank you china's government
