4:06 pm
before nima in the occupied west bank israeli army says the palestinians were killed after attempting to drive a car into israeli soldiers local residents though say it was a car accident the u.s. consulate in west jerusalem which provides diplomatic representation to the palestinians is to be absorbed by the new u.s. embassy for israel on monday a controversial decision to turn them into a single diplomatic mission was announced in october by u.s. secretary of state mike pompei oh the consul is been in place for about one hundred seventy five years and acts as a defacto u.s. embassy for palestinians many palestinians consider the move a downgrade and diplomatic relations it's as a partner at the truman national security project he says there is no going back on the embassy move even if trump leaves office. bear in mind that in one thousand nine hundred five the it became law in america to try to move the embassy to jerusalem in every six months since then there's been a waiver to to prevent it from happening and it was passed on
4:07 pm
a bipartisan basis so i don't think the embassy in any way shape or form will will move back to tel aviv the issue of the consulate in jerusalem once this change is made i don't imagine that it would change again but i think very importantly one part that's being missed i don't know that the israelis would object to the americans building a full fledged embassy in ramallah and i don't know why that's not something that's being discussed any change like that needs to be viewed significantly and again it just points to the direction that the trip administration is going in but again i do believe that the israelis would not object to the americans putting an embassy in ramallah i think actually in fact that they would celebrate it because one of the big issues that the israelis look at is the idea of in any sort of two state solution of splitting jerusalem and if they were at the americans were to put an embassy in ramallah it would dictate that the palestinians if they were to have some sort of capital in east jerusalem it would not be the same sort of wouldn't

have the same diplomatic status as ramallah so again i think the israelis would actually welcome the idea and it's not the richest regions and europe and an economic powerhouse of italy and it has also where the country's far right party now known as the league has thrived almost a third of the region voted for the party and it's and i am of racial policies and recent elections asuna government for its migrant labor is crucial to the success of that region. a city steeped in history and as with other parts of italy their own is people are fiercely protective of their identity and customs so much so that protecting these was one of the foundations for the likud party. where the league has always been important in terms of right wing parties and identity terry a movement it's an experiment into right wing politics we are battling for an identity and cause for defending security and against illegal uncontrolled immigration and the issue of immigration is always close to the top of the party's
4:09 pm
agenda there is a history of the extreme right here in verona back to the days of when it was part of the republic of salo during world war two and nazi puppet state these days it is the league that rules here and they found the fervor of near fascist organizations here problem is that their anti immigrant rhetoric collides with the reality and that is that migrants are very much part of the success of this wealthy region. it's heavy work making motorized outdoor tools in this factory the assembly line chan's out lawnmowers and tractors one of the many industrial operations that defines venet off as a powerhouse i had a look along the shop floor reveals how diverse the eight hundred strong workforce is the factory could not keep up with demand or maintain its leadership in the market without italian workers i don't think it about politics

we take it about the business and when the business come into the matters integration is something that you have to do because you want a wonderful product you want quality you want to fish and sea and you cannot have it without integrity whatever going to work is your environment. but while ten percent of the region's population is made up of migrants and immigration political parties have flourished. the immigrant labor force is indispensable in venit so especially in small to medium sized businesses more so in this region than in any other two also has one of the oldest populations in the country which needs domestic employees from this workforce despite this immigration strategy has worked for the leak in this region turning fear is into slogans has proved profitable for the politicians in terms of votes but some businesses are

4:17 pm
sudan every day but not all crossing points have screening sites and not all screening sites are easily accessible which is raising fears about the potential spread of the disease the screening site there located between the border areas between the r.c. in south sudan and uganda and south sudan they are extremely hard to reach due to complex security situation and extremely poor infrastructure so these two are the major challenge that we face in terms of. gaining access and maintaining access for continued. prevention and preparedness activities the authorities in a say they are trying to raise awareness to make it easier for people to get screened we have been advocating so much for people but you can. see to make sure that the usual fishel channels where the screaming points should not be come
4:18 pm
to those points i would walk over still in the fields most of them used to moves on but the challenge but we keep getting that we really need to use the offshoots because we don't have all the capacity to set up and screaming all those porous borders has been screened and assured she's well but it claims more victims in the democratic republic of congo and fighting continues to cut off access to border points in south sudan there are concerns if the disease spread aid workers here in a will have to step up from a position of preventing it to one of containing it he will morgan al-jazeera the arab or state. recap the headlines now on al-jazeera algeria's eighty two year old president has formally put forward his name for a fifth term in office of jealousies beautifully cast and facing growing protests against his rule is try to appease algerian saying he'll call for early elections

4:22 pm
hello and welcome to the program. sandwiched between india and pakistan kashmir has been a flashpoint between the two nuclear powers since one nine hundred forty seven both new delhi and islamabad claim all of the region each control's boss of it after three wars in the past seventy years a cease fire agreement was reached sixteen years ago but it has been regularly violated last week there were fears india and pakistan were on the brink of a new war india strikes in retaliation for a suicide bombing that killed at least forty indian troops in indian administered kashmir pakistan responded shooting down a fighter jet and detaining its pilot who was then returned to india as a gesture of goodwill but indian and pakistani forces have also exchanged heavy gunfire along the borders of kashmir killing at least seven people we have the
4:23 pm
latest from both sides first in delhi. maintaining the status quo has been a conundrum for india and pakistan that no one seems to have an answer for many others suggest that while kashmir seems to be the main issue between the two countries the de facto line of control may become and perhaps is the best possibility of a long term border between the two countries but to have that conversation islamabad the new delhi need to speak to each other and as far as india is concerned new delhi has had a problem with pakistan over the last seven decades the country has been ruled by one military dictatorship after another civilian governments have rarely lasted long enough for new delhi to have a conversation with them and new delhi will not discuss issues like this with an elected military officials the nearest that these two countries ever got to speaking to each other about trying to resolve the longstanding issues and kashmir was in the late ninety's when the present position their business sheriff was in
4:24 pm
charge of pakistan that fell through very quickly and then also analysts suggest how about the people of kashmir on both sides of the line of control their aspirations their wants and their needs should be considered will they be in the future is only a question politicians can ask and then for india the real concern is that no matter how far the negotiations go there are always non-state actors and militant groups or terrorists as they call them that are sponsored as far as new delhi is concerned by pakistan and it only takes one incident like that and pull warmer in mid february to disrupt the status quo it's a complicated political jigsaw that has yet no answer but inside story i'm still robin in new delhi. combat heydays following events from islamabad. danger in britain india and pakistan remain a den or dime high once again or did the issue of kashmir were just come to the
4:25 pm
forefront and india has blamed buggers don for committing an act of getting them over forty over its shoulder and located in forty while mom bhagavan said that they had no evidence to suggest that the attack was gathered out from bloggers on saying that the regular you didn't die during the indian and ad d. i tag go in there gosh meeting with indian nationality buggers on going to new to maintain their days in their dangerous issue and i didn't do excited much to get that across their day boil to talk about all outstanding the future however india had already a good read by august on under their shimla agreement signed off for the water in one hundred seventy one that orders through to marjorie said good bye lad drily the problem is india did not want a third party intervention could try and sort out their dispute and add that same time if you are just a dog group august on bringing up the issue of getting them the bugs on the prime
4:26 pm
minister imran khan had already made and opened all four to india dead bugs on a drilling to discuss all outstanding issue an order dissolved there's a dispute the boiler seems now in n.p.r.'s court according to most analysts here and so fall their signature coming out of new delhi showed their did nor deescalation on the way it has come all hard for inside story from islam a lot. let's bring in our panel in new delhi prem shankar john journalist and author of the book a smear nine hundred forty seven the origins of a dispute in london victoria schofield historian of the conflict and in lahore via skype central asia security analyst ahmed rashid welcome to or mr john i mean judging from statements by officials from india and pakistan they don't seem
4:27 pm
to be willing to further a scale of a crisis so now what is next. you're right that i don't think there's any desire whatever escalate the crisis anymore because fundamentally the first of all the the attack in peru imo was something that came out of the blue. and so all that the indian prime minister did was it took full advantage of it because he's facing an election in six weeks six weeks to two months and beating the beat of the sort of patriotic drum heads to get votes he's been doing that with his usual sort of. flare for the last fifteen days and. we've had these two attacks but counterattack i think it served its purpose and now i think we've had a very soon that the poor dates would be announced victorious it's fair to say this
4:28 pm
particular moment of this is a going to be a turn chapter and from now on was going to be back to normal. well it's always difficult to get as you say back to normal with the dispute over jam and kashmir what you tend to have is a halt a period of deescalation a period of status quo on easy an easy situation some violence and then potentially another flare up and this is why i think it's important to focus not just on deescalation but on what might be the next step which inevitably has to be actually putting heads together and working out how in year in peace and the inhabitants of the state can can live together peacefully to to resolve the issue. we have seen flare ups in the past is there any sentiment this time that this could be different it could be conducive to first political talks between iran.
4:29 pm
and not enjoy mahdi. one hundred one and i agree with that there would be a major escalation but what i am worried about is that this level of of escalation that we have already could be maintained for another two or three months by the indian side because. prime minister modi is seeking election and it suits him to have a. pakistan that as an enemy there it doesn't suit the pakistanis they are facing a very severe economic and political crisis they want an end to this as quickly as possible but unfortunately i don't see. prime minister modi really are asking for a quick resolution or even just to go back to what was the theater's quo before which was not particularly conducive to want to circumvent but at least it was not
4:30 pm
on putting the two countries on the edge of war. primm could be using this whole crisis to his own advantage but isn't there a burst of this could further spin out of control and he would and up facing one of the biggest political crises of his tenure well that's precisely why he i don't think there's going to be any more it's collision from the indian state as far as more these concerned he has got what he wanted out of it if it goes any further now first and foremost. we will not see he was able to portray india as a victim after the poor are made to act but it is skill and one counter-attack that's ok with the rip responded to what they did but a second one now would would would serve no purpose whatever particularly because the pakistani to attack our air strike was so carefully on was designed not to take
4:31 pm
human life and in fact there have been as far as i know almost no loss of human life on either side and it served his political purpose very well i doubt very much if he would like to rock this boat. he's a very fine orator is going to take full advantage of this and what i've seen is now he's picking on the on the opposition and saying why did you see this every day of the opposition makes a remark saying that look you up late just like here for elections are back you are at the national so that's the game today victoria against the backdrop of the domestic politics particularly in india and with the upcoming elections do you think that more you will have to wait until after the elections to decide whether or not he will be talking to the pakistani counterpart. yes i did i didn't see anything happening before the elections and i think those premonition had
4:32 pm
a right that it's going to be used as an election ploy basically to drum that patriotic drum it is arguable whether it might get out of control but one hopes not and there will not be any further escalation but unfortunately it's going to be some months until we see the outcome of the election before i think you ever get an initiative or an acceptance of a meeting between moody and prime minister imran khan with the russia this is a conflict there has been pitting two neighbors to support powers india and pakistan for almost seventy years but the whole issue is about kashmir do you think that to more of both leaders decide to start political talks about a way out of the crisis where should they start. well we've already got a blueprint which was in two thousand and seven when. prime minister
4:33 pm
manmohan singh from india and president musharraf from buck's son owners to agreed on a settlement at that time and that september never came into being because of the political crisis in pakistan and the musharraf government and rebel so there is already a formula there which could be taken up i think one of the tragedies of in the last few years is that modi has refused to have a back channel in which a trusted aides of pakistan of bucks county leaders and indian leaders would talk to each other when this. when this plan came up in two thousand and seven it was largely due to back channels not through the official foreign offices all the political governments of the of the two sides but a very secretive back channel when moodie was proposed to have this back channel by former prime minister nawaz sharif he refused and i think you know at
4:34 pm
a time like this when tensions are so high something like a back channel is very much needed. prem we've seen commentators and analysts saying that the problem with modi is that he has always been describing this as an issue coming from pakistan when he forgets the fact that this has become more of a homegrown problem where the indian government and the big party in particular have been ignoring the discontent which has been simmering for quite some time in the customer region. i think you're basically right on this and i would put it only slightly differently this is not merely a discontent that has been simmering the discontent had pretty nearly vanished when the when the did the road between she no good and. and with
4:35 pm
about was opened i was there was present i saw it i would say that the line of control it had value after that the amount of the number of militants coming across the border dropped sharply we went ahead and we had the the framework agreement that has just been referred to and really by two thousand and thirteen this thing had almost completely died out. you have to understand that the morsi government is not a normal government it is a government that got that came to power with thirty one percent of the vote you know then the just because the entire opposition was was was fighting each other and this came as a huge surprise now what they need to stay in power they have a horde transformative agenda that india must be taken to get totally transformed from being a weak. west loving sort of. governing
4:36 pm
to the muslims kind of country to a strong in the country as it used to be a thousand years ago now that kind of transformative. the gender that kind of ideology has no relationship to facts or history they're in the middle of this and they now feel that they're very close to it didn't need to win this election for another five years to change every institution in the country and bring it in line with their thinking so that there's no nor in terms of stick to it isn't left in but police in the bureaucracy or in the euro don't you see that as a that is that is that agenda very good this is so i see your point but isn't that the very important sense of the problem and this is going to be my question to victoria when a party builds its agenda around. do national is an anti muslim sentiment we see in it's backfiring now in the indian administered part of kashmir. well i think it's absolutely backfiring and this is one of the problems
4:37 pm
and actually one of the tragedies of the state of german question is history is that you've got a government as mr prince says that is so antipathetic all to the idea of secularism and without secularism why should the state of german kashmir want to stay within the indian union given its past history and i'm personally very surprised at the way that the government has handled kashmir in these in these recent years because it's really created an entire new generation of local kashmiris one can talk again about the involvement of pakistan till the cows come home but now what you've got is an indigenous movement you look at the kashmir is out on the streets you look at the hostility the use of pellet guns to quell crowds only makes the kashmiris feel they're being treated like cattle or this is not the way to win hearts and minds which was the mantra chanted twenty years ago by the indian government and they've done the exact opposite with the russian listening to
4:38 pm
pakistani officials over the last few days they seem to be completely in denial about their responsibility for what's happening this saying that we have nothing to do with. it is not claiming responsibility for the i do think that the pakistanis are typically will have to make major concessions for this issue in particular to go forward. well let me just say one thing in addition to what victoria said which i agree with very much is is that it's very dangerous for india to hunt this kind of level of antipathy amongst the kashmir population not it did this is not anti-gay i can hear them growing because of bucket start up because of pakistani militants coming across the border you certainly got a situation in in indian kashmir when the militant the local militants who kill themselves carry out two side attacks have become the heroes of the day now this
4:39 pm
was not the case before in fact when but it's done for sending in militants in the early ninety's there was a lot of resentment from question here is that why are these foreigners coming in telling us what to do know it seems that the kashmiris themselves so fed up that they're willing to lie or not is their own militants i and i certainly yes i mean at first but i thought his concern buxton has never faced a government in india which would which was not willing to talk every government in india had to talk to parks on it some level of the other and often about the kashmir issue this is the first government that box that is faced with that refuses to talk and consequently there is an element of brinkmanship on talks on side as well to try and force the pace of talks with india now to do that both sides have to compromise and i think one of the ways that one compromise obviously is that
4:40 pm
some of these groups that are resident in pakistan should be disbanded fully. and not just promises made but disbanded fully but on the other side is that is that mean to talk for india to talk to because for me good speaking about. the compromises miss a prime the general kashmir is a. typical example of what happens when a government alienates its own population don't you think this is about time for the government to reach out of the kashmir is in german and kashmir give them one biggest say and run in their own affairs for for both parties to turn the top. decades of animosity and death of course. of course it is of course it is i've written nothing else but this ever since the death of good honey in fact i began warning about what was happening in south carolinian in april two
4:41 pm
thousand and fifteen and i've been in touch with people in south. and i am a poor at that at the lack of sensitivity in them with the government the move the government given to an agreement to move to say the p.d.p. government and then he did it. from the beginning in compete bad faith in order to make a fool out of them of the most of the p.d.p. to destroy its control in the valley and create chaos that's exactly what the succeeded in doing and they had no intention right from the beginning to ever allow kashmir good to have autonomy to ever allow the the government to function they did not want the vision to cooperate with the with the p.d.p. in kashmir and did not want to talk to the who did it the deliberately. deliberately stopped broke all. contact and communication with the rich in the most
4:42 pm
