5:08 pm
you have family also showed to donald trump about the foot in spokesman said that he has no idea what exactly this peace plan is that nathan ya is talking about but if there is such a plan that he is willing to discuss and consider this but as most analysts here in moscow say this is all more about a photo opportunity a very high profile photo opportunity for knit and youde to show that he is an international leader that he traveled to washington to moscow meets all of these leaders while his contenders. are just sitting there the big question though is what putin wants in return from for how being with this election what putin ones of course is that israel stops or at least limits their attacks on iranian forces in syria and also hezbollah forces but that's something that needs and you can't commit to especially not before the elections netanyahu would rather want the opposite that put in as a sas if he can help to get rid of the arabian forces and hezbollah forces from
5:09 pm
syria but that's also something that putin has not committed on after their last meeting late february they don't yell announce at the world's going to be some working group that would discuss the departure of foreign troops from syria russia sad that yeah of course russia agrees with that on the long term but there's no short term plan for that important to note as wild as that will be the first meeting between it and you know and put in after said that the golan heights should be part of israel and that was something that moscow really angrily responded to we won't know for sure what will come out of this meeting any time soon because so far no statements are expected. you said the last meeting i think step was in february or so what type of relationship to the two leaders in the two countries actually have well the room relationship was very troubled because there was this helicopter russian military have helicopter which
5:10 pm
was downed by israeli forces not by israel israeli forces but by syrian forces in september but it happened because of a serious attack on syria so that's when the whole relationship became very strained sense that this is going to be just third time that both leaders are going to meet so the relationship ship has definitely improved but they have been talking about syria a lot and it's about the so-called the conflicting zones that they are mean discussing about. the main obstacle of course is still these discussions about it rainy and forces in syria that really wants to see a leaving and britain doesn't seem to be keen on committing on or maybe he doesn't even have the power to actually been able to commit on that step in moscow thank you. secretary general has warned the u.s. congress about what he calls

5:22 pm
after six weeks of protests calling for political reform and an end to the algerian president's twenty years in power absolutely. agreed to step down on tuesday according to state media but it doesn't appear to be the end for the popular movement for reform here to talk to us about our next steps in beirut and then a resident scholar at the carnegie middle east center and infest morocco. activists really good to have you here ladies and i'm just thinking in the last few weeks on social media the pictures of the protests have been so compelling but now that the president for algeria has stepped down what do you see there was a lot of enthusiasm online and is represented in this street this is a who writes and yes we can and yes we just did it the president has resigned
5:23 pm
indeed we are happy for this because it's an achievement but we should not for. get that this is just one of so many demands we are seeking to achieve and will god willing and salo we will keep it peaceful you can see the enthusiasm there but also the hope for what is to come next you were just there on friday and i know you have plans to return again on this coming friday what are your friends and family who are there and were there yesterday what are they telling you about the mood on the street right now they are both celebrating but also awaiting the next mass demonstrations that will going izing hard. and they're hoping for a bigger protest a larger turnout because they understand that they may have removed the face of the regime but the system it so is still very much intact and
5:24 pm
they are seeking to dismantle it in its entirety and to build from here and effectively to develop the future leadership of the nation danios who showing that celebrate tree video from the streets of different places you were smiling so brutally is this mission accomplished all we done and do you take a moment to enjoy what you were protesting about. well you know as you may know i participated in that they were all stray ssion on march twenty second and march twenty ninth and i did as the political analyst that i am but also. with my heart as an un jury and citizen and i can not say that i am very happy and very proud of what the people have achieved without any drop of blood being shed and i think a gene gives
5:25 pm
a beautiful lesson of peace and how a peaceful movement can achieve goals however you know i am not skeptical that maybe i am realistic. you know that there is still things to be done and algerian is that their demands are still you know they still have a lot of. it is sure that the men left but that algerian system is not a one man show behind the men there is a complex and all but regime and durians are today asking for us to go to the party but also for the all of the guard to depart and including the chief army chief of staff again as a matter of fact on friday twenty nine they were seeing in the who would flee i would imagine gates side which means go go and take with you gates. you said that
5:26 pm
this is not a one man show and that was just a good way to sum up what people online are saying because they say it is so much bigger of course than just with a flick i see this as i expect the protests to grow bigger with the resignation is just the first step in shaping the contours of algeria's political future this should not be about the president alone it should be about overhauling an entire political structure anchored on a leader's i'm now see the here on twitter got a response from another member of our commune. he talks he writes and says the first thought that came to me was it's about time but you are one hundred percent correct the entire political structure needs overhauling i hope they can do it but it's hard malea how would protesters and opposition members even go about that the answer is is not a clear one there isn't simply one to give and i think the protesters are very clear about that and they're and they're in it for the long haul speaking to
5:27 pm
demonstrate to they said you know we'll continue marching for a year to however long it's going to take for our country to be rejuvenated for a complete transformation of our society a complete redistribution of wealth and a complete. with the idea of. our liberation struggle had the four of our national struggle and identity and i think that it is with those aspirations in mind they are not looking for quick solutions or band-aid they're looking for long term. revolutionary what so early as today a pool of the on the streets people were still protesting have a look to because of it to the president that you know with all your power gates on the we're here to say to you and your clear get out because it was. for the folks over there not against gay it's the army chief of staff who was part of the system
5:28 pm
part of the current regime in one very much. i know you've written about this opinion piece in the new york times opinion another battle of algiers and you're talking here about the entire political system the military's involvement in it so if people are still protesting what do they want now remains that president now want. well the people are sick of this a regime that has been hijacking the country if i may say and the political system and the economic welfare there for the last twenty years not to say as a matter of fact since the independence of the country in one nine hundred sixty two people are fed up with with also this all to either shift we are talking about a country in which more than fifty five percent of the population is under age twenty five so people are generally in want
5:29 pm
a leadership that is younger and that can actually represent them as one a protester said it once and he said it in french. meaning i want to president who is able to treat so behind the you know the joke of there is a generation that is really capable of that and they're standing where he is at stake and we've seen it you know algerian showed a great degree of political maturity they stood up for their rights and they did it in a very peaceful way as they said the protests they'd still mia which means peaceful and also how about a yard which means that. and i think what they want to day is to remove this all the guard but also you know while it is true that i have been asking for the military to engage and to remove they are also aware are the egyptians scenario if i may say they don't want to have another you know see if i
5:30 pm
may say in algeria so this is why they've been asking gates to move and as a matter of fact i think that if gates saleh the chief of the army chief of staff moves and resign it will be it will be very good for him and. you know he would be remembered as this great. general who made a historic. bet i think it is time for him to resign and if the president was on twitter he would see things like this this is chris who writes nothing is new under the sun the military will take over and bring back some rogues belonging to the old man's political party things will get worse and algeria and less democratic forces are really vigilant so that raises a few questions that another person in our community a former gaston a woman you heard just at the top of today's show yes i mean i loose here's the
5:31 pm
question she raised what we're seeing now is the transition and headed now by. the head of the national people's council and. now the little question surrounding the rule of the military to going to last until. and also what type of transition. to be reflective of the democratic aspirations of people. going to be and then reflect who says that sunni insurgents have very little appetite to see and long. so she raised very valid questions there and then joe here on you tube watching live picks up saying what's the likelihood of the military allowing a genuinely democratic system to take hold in algeria mali i'll give that one to you. well. during protests. you know in many
5:32 pm
rounds now have demonstrated they're not willing to wait for them to deliver it all to create this transition if you will they will shape what comes next and they will decide it and they will make their opposition to whatever is proposed very very clear and i think it's important to bear that in mind that the german people are not waiting for the remnants of the regime to provide them with what they think is a suitable leadership they will decide on and they will deliberate on the streets. and we're just going about to wrap up here but many i'm just looking at the picture if you protesting this is a couple of weeks ago are you still going to go out and protest do you have more protesting if you. have much more protests being in me and i will be alongside the algerian people especially as a member of the algerian diaspora it is incredibly powerful i'm moving to be amongst my people marching demonstrating and demanding freedom are you going to be
5:33 pm
out on the streets again are you done yes you know i just came back from two days ago and i am and again to come back so defend that yes you will be joined by federer who tweets in the protests will continue on friday april fifth peacefully we want them out. thanks so much for joining us and now to chad where it's been more than a year since the chatty and government block social media access to its citizens use of services like whatsapp facebook and twitter was cut off amid economic and political anxieties in the country listen to what chatty an activist can by deed i mean had to say about the band's impact. let them in with the mothers the sense of doing the a muzzle in indispensable is in no time of little use paul saffo last if there is another little i.v.c. like this on the cyclical do this in our daily quasi as a t. . i.
