we're turning over a new leaf we're making room for peace corp friendship so we do have a take a mutual understanding north macedonia is now cleared to enter nato but the opposition conservative new democracy party which enjoys a ten point lead over the ruling seat is a is still promising a hard line position if it comes to power. to say love which. i shall not give up on greece's right to veto scorpios entry into the european union i shall fight with all my strength to mitigate the negative impact that is sure to arise from this problematic agreement. the principle of those who oppose the agreement is that it creates a basis for greece's neighbors to claim not just that they are citizens of north macedonia but potentially that they are a race of ethnic macedonians the agreement cuts through decades of greek foreign policy to recognize a macedonian language and nationality that is the nub of greeks disagreement with the deal many don't mind sharing macedonia as
a political term but the seeds of macedonian identity as spurious. because wanted good relations in the balkans they should never have recognized the macedonian state or given a macedonian identity to people it doesn't belong to or in macedonia language when you know that there has never been one we know that what's being ratified today in the parliament will be scrutinised by greek and european courts the government admits the agreement is not perfect but it has at least got the other side to agree to stop claiming ancient greek history for its own come september images of alexander the great to disappear from north macedonian schoolbooks as our maps of a greater macedonia north macedonia is most illustrious history now perhaps lies in its future. al-jazeera athens. a climate change was one of the main topics on the gender of the world economic forum in davos this year more and more
it's a new generation of young activists that's taking up the global warming sorry kyra it has more there's one person at the center stage of all of this and that sixteen year old the great. swedish environmentalist has been meeting scientists in davos as well as the head of the i.m.f. christine lagarde believes that is leading a grassroots movement of schoolchildren and they're quoting a wall of the to take concrete action against climate change now she and thousands of others have been skipping school on different continents once a week in protest. i traveled here by train and that i am doing because i stopped flying because of climate reasons. because i i don't want to. say one thing and do another thing i want to practise as i preach and. that the trip here took about thirty two hours i think from stockholm to. young people need to realize what it means that their future is at risk in they need to
do something about that gets angry and transform that anger into action where it's a story went viral last year and she gave a speech at the climate change conference call twenty four in poland and she started the hashtag fridays for future you can see in the corner there as well as climate strike and school strike for climate and since then she's received a lot of support from both children and their parents too so much so that kids are using social media to spread the word they're posting their pictures like this one here this happened a few hours ago and this is in a small scottish town outside a primary school and this is a little protest they have been holding and youngsters have also been sharing their videos online from other protests being held elsewhere in europe this one was from earlier as well in germany where thousands of been gathering in the last few hours should join the march.
and this is less than twenty four hours ago because on thursday thirty five thousand children gathered in brussels as they made their way to the european parliament and made to skip school and i saying they'll continue to do so every week until their government listens to them and adopts the twenty fifteen pounds agreement goals on tackling climate change. we're here to march for the climate as it's the only way for us young people to make our voices heard we don't have the mains that the government has and since they're not doing it we're getting on with it during it. everything we can learn that we're here to make things move forward because we know that if nobody acts well we know very well what's going to happen so we're here for that school strikes have also been held in countries like colombia uganda and even australia and a big global march is being planned in new york as well as the rest of the world from march the fifteenth.
a lucky break in the second half. but terrible back pass from last a gimmick was picked up by alley of course as the edge of the box easily went around matthew ryan the goal was the only one of the game and put the u.a.e. into the semifinals. they'll now play qatar for a place in the final the next world cup hosts were up against asian powerhouse south korea who have won the tournament twice but later in the second half cottle's abdulaziz outen got the breakthrough curling in a low strike almost immediately south korea hit back but they go was ruled offside even after the winter v.a. are the one zero result in abu dhabi was enough support into their first asian cup semifinal tare fans were able to attend the game because of the ongoing diplomatic blockade of the country by hosts the united arab emirates and saudi arabia but a handful of omani fans were there to celebrate with the qatari team. and i think one of the keys of this team is that as
a group. they are outstanding and they know what it means to win the game in this competition. show that they shall read every game because we need to celebrate the big reason to the of course is one step forward more and everyone was celebrating congratulating each other so march on in the asian cup preparations for the a world cup also continue despite the blockade speaking at the world economic forum in davos the head of the twenty twenty two world cup organizing committee house on our awadi told the overseer that football showpiece is bringing change to the country and the national team. the transformative power of hosting a tournament like the world cup is not just limited to the national team but no doubt the national team you know we have a fantastic example in east asia japan south korea when they hosted you can see where their teams are today you can see where their legs are today there is no dust they will have that knock on effect what i'd like to also emphasize is these
tournaments have a knock on effect in terms of social events and economic events as well and we are working very hard to capture as much as possible these benefits and so that these benefits remain beyond twenty twenty two and these benefits are felt beyond the state of the middle east and the arab world. is not going to help getting. around that. the issues of the blockade just so we're clear is a unilateral action taken by the blockading nations against qatar. you know for us we've always said that this world cup is a regional tournament it is a tournament for the people of the region it is a tournament that we that we work very hard and we're working very hard to ensure that the people of the region benefit from it i think it's a testimony to the resilience of the state of the people of being able to overcome such an obstacle and now honestly we're focusing on delivery deliveries coming along very very well as i said projects are coming along the pipeline according to schedule and we're ready to deliver and host the world in twenty twenty two. human
rights watch report. in terms of workers' rights and that's something we've always agreed to i mean i've never personally i've never said that the work is done on the back as a matter of fact every time we've spoken to the international organizations every time we've discussed the progress and the significant progress of the state of couple has made and we have always said that more work needs to be done i don't believe any nation can rest on its laurels and say that everything has been. reformed and there is no different however what is very positive is the fact that there's a recognition of significant progress being made good work being done on the ground and being done in a way where it's sustainable for the long term not short term solutions or band-aid solutions and that is exactly what we're looking forward looking for long term solutions in terms of labor reforms and we're very proud of but again there's a lot more to be done. all tennis fans have been waiting for. a
final with his old rival rafa. cruised through the semifinal against. the frenchman in straight sets six two six two. seven. and. it's. you know he's my biggest rival. you know in my career played so many matches against him at big matches and this court of course the one that stands out was the finals of six hours almost in two thousand and twelve and. hopefully we don't go that long this time but. i'm sure we're going to have a good finals. one final has already taken place the unseated pair of australia's sam stosur and. china be defending champions to many bubbles and testing them and then a bitch for the women's doubles title the six three six four victory was the tenth
in a row for stosur and zhang and their first grand slam title was partly it was also revenge on bubbles and then of each who beat them at last year's us open. there was east african dominance on friday at the dubai marathon with ethiopia and kenya taking top honors it was a record breaking performance in both races to get an a model of ethiopia finished first in the men's race each time of two hours three minutes and thirty four seconds broke the course record by twenty six seconds it was also the sixth the fastest men's marathon time ever. on the women's side it was kenya is a ruth chip get h. record of the food fastest women's marathon time in history two hours seventeen minutes and eight seconds more than enough to take victory and smash the course record by more than two minutes. italian dominate
paris's a man who enjoys the harmon come call seen kids hell in austria and proved why yet again on friday paris won world cup down to a victory here in twenty thirty twenty seventeen and again on this occasion the italian was the only man to dip under the one minute fifty seven second mark but the event was overshadowed by a horrific crash this is sweden's alexander cohen during his downhill attempt and as you can see it did not end the way he a player and he had to be airlifted by helicopter to hospital after receiving lengthy medical treatment and that's all the sport more coming up again later back to marry him in london. thanks very much peta well now a russian toy phone is pushing the boundaries of taste with its places for game which is based on the poisoning a form of double agent service cripple and his daughter in the u.k. last launch called out guys and souls free roll dice to advance from moscow it's the english town represented by a cathedral met in protective suits asha denies any involvement in the attack using

a very warm welcome to the program you're watching al-jazeera live from london i'm maryanne demasi also coming up. the. drums our live roger stone appears in court facing seven charges stemming from investigation . venezuela's self declared interim president calls for mass demonstrations and rejects nicolas maduro his offer of talks. is stalled. and the greek parliament ratifies the agreement renaming macedonia ending a long dispute but fueling anger on the streets. the u.s. senate has unanimously passed a bill to reopen government services for three weeks off to a record thirty five day long shutdown president donald trump announced that his
republicans and the opposition democrats and reached a funding agreement to last until february fifteenth but there's still no broader solution to trump's demands of five point seven billion dollars for a border with mexico the issue which caused the deadlock in the first place as a round table with hispanic past has drawn repeated his threat to declare a national emergency in order to build the wall. we're going to work with the democrats who are sick and if we can't do that then we'll do obviously we can do for the emergency because that's what it is a national emergency these are hispanic pastors and reference ministers and they understand better than anybody it's an emergency it's a humanitarian emergency and we're going to take care of our border. alan fischer has been following a dramatic day in washington. pressure has been building on him from both republicans and the general public his approval rating is way down and he realized he would have to do something so what he's agreed to is
a thirty day continuing resolution that funds the government until february the fifteenth you know there's going to be discussions between the democrats and the republicans in that time to see if they can come up with some sort of deal donald trump says the democrats are ready to talk about a border wall but chuck schumer says they're not they're ready to talk about more border agents they're ready to talk about more immigration judges they're ready to talk about high tech drones on the border and providing more of them but they are not ready to talk about a war so there's a lot of ground still to cover here's the kicker donald trump says that if he doesn't get what he wants in thirty days he will declare a national emergency that means the military will then start building the wall a couple of problems of the first of all it's almost certainly going to be challenged in court if he does that and the other thing is there are many many republicans who don't want him to do that they believe that that sets a precedent and they believe that the next time there is a democratic president then they could declare
a national emergency over something like climate change or gun control and they don't want to see that power so there is a difficult thirty days ahead for both the government and for donald trump it's all about democrats and republicans coming up with something that is acceptable to democrats and republicans and the final big what if donald trump himself if they can do that then there might be hope on the horizon but there's a lot of hard talking to be done over the next thirty days. well to our other top story this hour long time ally of u.s. president donald trump has been arrested and charged with seven crimes as poss of the investigation into attentional collusion with russia while just stone is accused of bank conduit between crimes campaign and wiki leaks and then lying about it patti call him has the story from washington. the walking out of a federal courthouse in florida roger stone seems to be channeling his first political boss former president richard nixon the gesture of
a disgraced man who when faced with impeachment was forced to resign the presidency for stone his legal challenges are just beginning but he's vowing he won't testify against his long time friend us president donald trump as i had said previously there is no circumstance whatsoever under which i will bear witness against the president nor will i make not rise to ease the pressure on myself i look forward to her calling in concrete vindicated special counsel robert muller says stone was talking to both the trunk campaign and julian assange founder of wiki leaks about hacked e-mails from hillary clinton's campaign when asked about it by a congressional committee stole her allegedly lie we had a very frank exchange and then when a person promised to tell the committee the truth the indictment says stone sent an e-mail to him saying he should prepare to die and his dog would be killed as well
it's very interesting to see the kinds of people that the president of united states have surrounded himself with in this connection to the integrity of our elections is obviously something we have to get the truth to back wiki leaks has denied doing anything wrong and the president reacted in a tweet again calling it a witch hunt and that there was no collusion but this is the first indictment to clearly link the hacked e-mails with the trump campaign and bruce fein says more charges are still possible do you can issue what's called superseding. entitlements and ad counts that aren't there necessarily in the first grand jury allegations so you can say you hold it to ratchet it up say all right if you don't cooperate we're going to bring in more indictments against you so that's certainly a possibility roger stone has been known for decades as a man who revels in police dirty political tricks who doesn't back down sending that message by tattooing nixon's face on his back netflix even made
a documentary about it i revel in your hatred because if i were ineffective you wouldn't say he's about to find out if he's crossed the line from controversial to criminal. behavior al-jazeera washington. political tensions are mounting in venezuela as opposition to one calls for free and fair elections two days after swearing him self in as interim president during a speech in the capital caracas he accused president nicolas maduro of tightening his grip on power against the people's wishes at least twenty just as have been killed in anti-government demonstrations this week three hundred fifty more have been arrested since wednesday russia and mexico have both offered to mediate between the leaders but why does his supporters back onto the streets in the coming days. so you coming with us this saturday and sunday.
