the in the next few days time and he says that that pakistan and courage is and supports groups that do things like this you know pakistan as a country as saying you know we're not responsible. can and should pakistan are they in a position to be doing more to suppress groups like this. yes or no or yes because some of the leaders all the debtors to groups getting out at that because he had let us get it or jay said mama the one group that has just carried out this attack yesterday and who are these leaders are not in pakistan most of them are you know. not to behind the bars identical to to the extent that are these these handlers out in pakistan the pakistani state should do more in order to ensure that they don't get me out of these never areas activities but it is also to be noted that many of these. terrorist are groups including that's going to. be

a similar but has actually getting out that backs against the pockets on our pockets funny state except in fact why should president bush ever was attacked by jay several months i sent him up a sense minutely solutions that i could buy days i bought so that is some truth many dss that oksana has to go more but not all of these. it comes out of the box that he controls i think the their way to deal with these google groups is that pakistan and india itself. begin a guy don't close as they get is to put more pressure on pakistan to seventy price to assign action to some of these strong but i think so because honestly after not take up thank you so much for joining us from new delhi appreciate it was a man a llama as a defense and security analyst based in islam abide shane denies pakistan's involvement and points to human rights abuses an indian administered kashmir. focused on the slog from being in this mess a good time to this attack i as

a pakistani journalist as a pakistani the epicenter of condemned the setback and i agree with the families of the deceased but having said that india needs to introspect in itself in its own policies in the wall crimes it has been undertaking in indian occupied general and us need since nineteen ninety ever since the. special problems act was implemented in the valley and ever since then did a full impunity granted to the law enforcement agencies and put it only to the indian army to carry out what so that good maybe to suppress the right. the domination and freedom struggle so focused on this far from being dead and any kind of thing going from and i strongly deny that on behalf of my focus on the authorities but having said that india needs to stop jumping the gun on about this phone but in our head in the news hour including spain's prime minister calls for a general election the end of april the third and less than four years. skipping
10:05 pm
school to say the planets are going to get who've been raising awareness of climate change. and sport after more than ten years of playing catch up could this be the car that finally wins for ari another formula one world title. as president tom trumpets on a collision course for the democrats in congress after saying he will declare a national emergency to secure funding for a border wall with mexico a bill to avoid another government shutdown was passed by both houses on thursday but it tonight is trump the money he says he needs to build a barrier john hendren has more from washington d.c. i actually think it's fair politics is president trump ended one showdown with congress he set off another the yeas are eighty three. naser sixty ending the threat of another government shutdown the senate and house of representatives
10:06 pm
passed a spending bill that does not include the five point seven billion dollars president trump wanted for a border wall with mexico but as the president signaled he would sign that measure the white house said trump will also declare a national emergency on the border giving him access to contingency funds that congress has already approved he will also be issuing a national emergency declaration at the same time and i've indicated to him that i'm going to prepare the port the national emergency declaration democratic leaders immediately promised to challenge president trump couldn't convince mexico he couldn't convince the american people he couldn't convince their elected representatives to pay for his ineffective and expensive wall so now he's trying an end run around congress in a desperate attempt to put taxpayers on the hook for it make no mistake.
10:07 pm
congress will defend our constitutional authorities in every way that we can democrats say it's hard to argue that illegal immigration is a crisis when border arrests are at a forty year low we will review our options with the hair to respond appropriately to it i know the republicans have some unease about it no matter what they say because if the president can to clear an emergency on something that he has created as an emergency and in the illusion that he wants to convey just think of what a president with different values can present to the american people democrats and even some republicans warn the president is setting a dangerous precedent opening the door for future presidents to achieve unilaterally what they could not get out of congress a future democratic president they say could one day declare global warming or gun violence to be national emergencies the democrats who control the house have already signaled they will vote on a bill to block emergency funding for
10:08 pm
a border wall but in the republican controlled senate that measure is unlikely to pass if trump can overcome a certain court challenge that would give him the chance to fulfill his promise to funded two thousand mile wall if not the promise that mexico would pay for it john hendren al jazeera washington. our white house correspondent kimberly hocket joins us live from washington d.c. so clearly how is how is donald trump going to make the case that there is a national emergency with the situation when is john hendren a part of the numbers don't back it up and and quite frankly just the optics he was just playing golf the other day with tiger woods and he saying that the country is facing a national emergency. yeah this is going to be a tough argument for this white house there's no question about it what we're told is that they are well prepared and that they have been working on this going back as far as over the summer essentially that is when the white house first directed
10:09 pm
then budget director now chief of staff mick mulvaney to begin not only looking for these funds but also how to sell it to the american public there is no question in all of this donald trump is essentially declaring a national emergency in part number one to fulfill a campaign promise but number two because the optics of this spending bill he's about to sign certainly is not a win for him and this is a president that likes to win so this is a lot about public relations essentially we remember the government shutdown that gripped this this country it lasted for thirty five days the polls showed most people blame donald trump and republicans for that so this is looking like another loss as the president tries to sign this spending bill it only gives a little more than one point three billion for the border wall a far cry from the five point seven that he was looking for so the only way to win this in the eyes of this white house from for president that simple declaratives
10:10 pm
and simple messaging is to sign this legislation but in turn declare a national emergency using money from other areas that have already been approved by the government for a national emergency and we should point out that the congress. has given donald trump the ability and all presidents it's not just donald trump the ability to spend money and broad authority when it comes to national emergency to making that declaration but the spending of the money has always been with regard to the u.s. constitution controlled by congress so when the lawmakers argue that this is a dangerous precedent it is a dangerous precedent but one could argue that this is one that has been eroding for about twenty years. or since the september eleventh attacks and each president successively has been sort of taking more and more power with regard to the outline of how money is spent and how congress controls it and to that point that's that's a great point kimberly and a lot of there are
10:11 pm
a lot of republicans that have pushed back against that trend over the years and now it's their own president that wants to wants to do that is he likely to pick the face some pushback from his own party. absolutely so what we expect we're going to see is not only challenges in the courts that could open a whole array of lawsuits but also in congress nancy pelosi has already said as as the speaker of the house in control of the house of representatives the democratic party that they will challenge this legislatively once that is expected to pass the house of representatives in order for anything to come lott has to pass both chambers the chamber of the senate is controlled by republicans so that speaks to your point it is definitely going to be difficult and probably split the republican party over this issue because we already know that there are some republicans in the senate who are ideologically opposed to the actions that the president is
10:12 pm
taking for the reasons we've just discussed so this is expected to potentially divide the republican party and also make it very difficult for the next two years for donald trump to work with congress over any sort of spending issue expect that what this is lining up is a very big issue when it comes to the two thousand and twenty presidential election all right carefully halkett with the latest there from washington d.c. kimberly thank you. or leaders are meeting in germany to decide how to contain the threat from eisel after the armed group lost almost all of its territory in syria and iraq defeating the group will be among the issues on the agenda at the munich security conference speakers from the us russia iran and the e.u. will be addressing the delegates or governments have adopted different strategies on the issue. for us and munich to tell us and helpings are are getting off to a start there. yes the conference has started with opening statements from. officials from different parts of the
10:13 pm
world the nato chief and also from the german defense minister this is the most important annual gathering on global security it debates different issues of geopolitical significance from the challenges posed by the growing influence of countries like west russia and china to issues like the war in syria the conflict in yemen the fight against isis stability in the middle east and the g.c.c. crisis to name a few and joining me to talk more about those issues is mr durst with director of the stockholm international peace research institute mr done with the report of the munich conference states and china as the biggest what to western democracies is this a sign an indication that both could be on a collision course well i think that you've seen over the past four or five years
10:14 pm
steadily increasing tensions between russia and the u.s. and its allies and in the last couple of years also a build up of tensions between the u.s. and china so i think there is and there is clearly increasing toxicity increasing poison in the international system whether that means a collision course in terms of something so dramatic and so often we we don't really want to. think about it i mean that's that's forecasting that's not for me to say the evidence is of an international system of political relations which is in trouble at the moment and in which there's less cooperation than there had been before this is supposed to be a gathering good balance multilateralism and call for action but we comes to issues like iran the u.s. is pushing for a tougher stance more like salacious of the pushing the europeans to stay away from the two thousand and fifty nuclear deal the europeans are resisting this bush what does it leave the the international corporation well as you say there's a push in different directions that the u.s.
10:15 pm
convened this big conference in warsaw just now and at the same time the major european powers didn't turn up and instead they've been focusing on developing this so-called special purpose physical to try to make trading of financing a bit more possible with iran i don't think there's a big breakthrough on either side so i think there is a it's a static situation and it's a stalemate that is not helpful for iran or for the people of iran who want sanctions relief nor is it actually helpful for peace and security in the middle east where we want to see as you said an increasing cooperation some how they have to get over this moment and in some ways i have to say the u.s. administration has to drop this obsession with iran speaking of the violence and instability and the middle east brings up to the minds. of some of the countries in the region. are stated in the report are some of the biggest spenders in arms sales which raises medicine says about the future of the region particularly comes to the
10:16 pm
issue of human could this be a platform to push for an immediate end to the conflict in yemen which has created the crisis was it i'm sure there will be a big discussion about the situation in yemen and it is it's an enormous humanitarian crisis and it's not clear that the cease fire agreement that the swedish government brokered just before christmas for the her data port for. it's not clear really how well that's working and how well it's being respected i think in the bigger picture the middle east is a region of crisis and conflict and external intervention has sometimes been well intentioned and sometimes not but it has not been helping to ease the region's way towards peace and security so from somewhere the region has to find the resources within it to make not path possible itself with director of the stockholm international peace research institute thank you very much indeed richelle the
10:17 pm
bailouts and all meetings will be closely watched by the international media that would give us an indication as to which way the way is going to blow in the future like meeting between the russians and the americas against the backdrop of the times intention to pull out from the intermediate range nuclear forces treaty or between the russian americas of the chinese against the backdrop of the trade war waged by the trump administration against the chinese the biggest concern voiced by the leaders converging here in in mir is that this mounting tension could elise the most unprecedented arms of grace in the region and you could dismantle the international liberal order there has prevailed in the world after the second world war white house press and you know caution and care. i've put it to weather now every time we got a cold wind blowing towards washington d.c. rachela the moment washington state is feeling the wintry effect if you take

a multi-million dollar effort financed in part with bit to get even money is still far from completed more than seven years since construction began. making his first public appearance since the protests started on february seventh president condemned the violence on the streets but didn't outline any steps toward finding a resolution. an aide to the haitian president says the flames of the discontent are being fanned by the president's political opponents. ation politicians always want to get rid of the president after a year or two that's why we have this chronic instability the president wants and he's open to have a frank dialogue. while the latest protests in haiti are linked to the bad look at even scandal discontent with the government has been mounting since the aftermath of the two thousand and ten earthquake where more than one hundred thousand people were killed with widespread poverty

a declining economy and new evidence of systemic corruption and you're finally reached a boiling point on the streets of the haitian capital. we're in downtown port au prince where there is in an easy call as people pick up the pieces after more than a week of protests there are still roadblocks set up that are preventing the free flow of traffic and the tension that seems to suggest that the unrest may not be over just yet anti-government demonstrators have renewed calls for more protests continuing to demand the resignation of the president a condition that has made no indication of accepting the more moderate figures of the opposition are calling for a national dialogue one that includes voices from all sectors of haitian society however remains to be seen both sides will be able to find a lasting resolution to the ongoing political crisis went up a little dizzy to port au prince. thousands of striking nurses in kenya have defied a deadline given by the president to return to work or risk losing their jobs
