on the u.n. . i think it's significant for the for the fact that turkey now you know will not be able to gather further information. on on on their more divisions or what sort of. game day how did turkey in terms of political implications i think it's also important because the you we will you know will try to use this against turkey based on its already existing rivalry and strategies but you know this is not something that. well sir this is this is not an. interest it's about we did. these. rules work. also i'm sure if. you structure this is some of the information that we receive. from our sources there's been heavy

12:03 am
security and political analyst is playing down the impact turkey support will have on the fighting. i believe that in case the united nations government recognized government a government of national accord wants a help from the turkey militarily there is no dup that turkey will support the military or say the same thing. from my perspective for. analyzing the situation in libya. being backed by the rich countries such as the gulf countries does not mean that they will sound the ground of success and victory because the moral striation on the ground is very open. the government is united nations supervised government so we thought taking into consideration who's backing the rebellion heidi for half the turkey the perspective of principle of the turkish foreign policy we keep on supporting the un recognized government of national accord i can
12:04 am
see lots more so to come on the news hour including sri lanka's president faces resistance to sweeping national security reforms crunch talks for boeing as its chief executive defends its safety record. and in the horseracing returns the libyan city of benghazi and we'll be here with that story in sport a little bit later. now a rare meeting of afghan leaders and elders known as a lawyer jirga is taking place in kabul with the recent talks between the u.s. and the taliban is topping the agenda well this meeting brings together afghanistan's many ethnic religious and tribal communities in the past loya jirga has been used to approve a new constitution declare war choose a new king or to make sweeping social or political reforms well the participants have voted to appoint the jirgas temporary leader as well as deputies and
12:05 am
secretaries and they've created fifty committees and will spend up to a week discussing issues including those talks with the taliban. one of the duties of the loya jirgah representatives is to define peace whether the taliban is ready for peace or not you lead people's demands and these questions regarding the people's expectation from you is to discuss. these issues wolf peace and stability brotherly. from kabul. a long day for the delegates at this loya jirga here in kabul more than three thousand people packed in to the white building you see over my shoulder. a huge responsibility of trying to figure out what peace means for afghanistan going forward watch the red lines what the priorities will be for the afghan government should they get to talk pace with the taliban in the future well the three thousand people in the if there are two percent of them a woman in they come from all over afghanistan representing different tribes
12:06 am
different religions different ages different ethnicities coming together to try to answer four questions they are what needs to be done to achieve long lasting peace in afghanistan what value should be safeguarded in talks with the taliban what kind of personalities should represent the government in these talks and lastly on foreign policy what type of actions towards foreign countries should be taken for those countries that do support the taliban now the taliban not happy about the loya jirga they put out a statement saying that they feel like this is all a show by the u.s. that they find it disrespectful to the log histories of the with the long history of the loya jirga and that it does in fact that i spaced talks they're not the only ones who are not happy with the loya jirga taking place it was boycotted by the sea delay he is the second highest ranking afghan official he wasn't here today because he said i just don't think it will be productive and i don't feel like i was
12:07 am
consulted in the lead up former prison hama cause i also was in attendance he would call to her president gone a passing judgment during his opening statements saying that he is aware that some leaders and all here but he will leave it up to the population to decide what they think about their absence for more on this let's speak to shuffle. political analyst and a former advisor to nato senior civilian representative in afghanistan he joins us live now from washington d.c. should he come back and president ghani says look the key to afghanistan successful future lies in unity and not division but the taliban have refused to talk directly to the afghan government so what can this loya jirga really achieve do you think i think primarily the aim for holding this loya jirga by the afghan government is three thing the first thing is to challenge to do one hundred the second thing is to act to deliver it to mischief the afghan government which will very soon in
12:08 am
couple of weeks spread the afghan constitution and third thing is it is a platform for the president a guy needs to have some election campaigns for the upcoming presidential elections but the aims are clear and then also the demands of afghan people are clear people are tired of war and they want peace since forty years afghanistan have been in war and we have a clear priority in afghanistan that we want peace so i think there is no need for further consultation and therefore you have seen the political leader presidential nominee they have opposed the loya jirgah but you know if this is something the president wants let it happen and see what will be that is are all right and it's important to note that the afghan chief executive abdullah abdullah who is the partner of course in the unity government he's decided to stay away i mean it seems that president donna needs to heal the divisions within the afghan government first before they can reconcile with the taliban. the main question is the
12:09 am
president danny he does not have any political well to engage in negotiations therefore he has been holding this loya jirga or what it called traditional loya jirgah first for morse this jirga has no constitutional legitimacy because under the constitution this cannot complete the requirements one of major pillar of that is the district concert chiefs. speakers they're missing they're not part of that as well as half of the government including dr abdullah even the highest decision making body for peace which is a high peace council it's also a governmental body the speaker or chairman of that high peace council also has by . so there is a big question for the legitimacy as well as the galatea of this. while i think. yeah i think there are some certain amount of people around three thousand people it's a big number and optimistic that these people will come in
12:10 am
a support of peace not in support of the given all right let's just talk about. some of the international stakeholders here should be so where does the u.s. fit into all of this mean we know the taliban has been having direct talks with the u.s. and qatar but those talks seem to have stalled. in the past as i remember per my experience the united states was supportive of the loya jirgah us even financially has supported some of the loya jirgah s. and afghanistan but in this chair the us neither support not oppose the loya jirga in the main there's a nutro i think behind the doors the united states has recommended the afghan government to postpone the jirga until the peace talks or negotiations results in qatar but as we have seen the cut have negotiation has been canceled by the afghan government so i think they're not big support of the united states for the job up but meanwhile they're not up losing that should come and we have to leave it there
12:11 am
thank you very much indeed for your time. sri lanka has a new defense minister the appointment as part of the government's overhaul of the intelligence and security services the president has also appointed a new acting police chief but the current chief has refused to step down he's been accused of failing to act on warnings that suicide bombers would target churches well it's just over a week since the easter sunday bombings which killed more than two hundred fifty people a life is slowly returning to normality but security remains tight. as reports. waiting for business these vegetables sellers in a columbus suburb are hoping things will return to normal soon a lot of the earlier but i'm letting you know they mean that there's no one on the road we're usually here to late night and finish our goods but today we have only brought less than one tenth of our usual stock. security remains tight after last week's coordinated bombing attacks and it's not just the police and security forces this shopping mall has started checking all visitors but for sri lankans who lived
12:12 am
through a civil war that lasted twenty six years the new measures while inconvenient are necessary i'm not scared at all this is a kind of a bond we are not scared. to go to forces they will do that is there something in our hearts you know of what happened last week but then yeah we have to step we have to make a living we have to survive. the schools and universities have been disrupted closed for two weeks but these kids don't seem too concerned. a recent government ban on any form of face covering that he knows the identification of individuals so a number of muslim women step up without their veils as sri lankans adjust to the security situation many are getting angry at what led to it more still be resources and the personnel were used by people to walk in their political enemies and that's who nor are the government of the two governments one. run by presidents.

12:19 am
first annual shareholders meeting since two of its aircraft crash within five months killing nearly three hundred fifty people the chief executive dennis muhlenberg has tried to reassure boeing shareholders some are suing the company of a safety disclosures made after the accidents investigations and lawsuits of course the aircraft manufacturer to suffer sharp losses and its share value well let's take a moment now to remind ourselves why this has happened well on march the tense ethiopian airlines flight three hundred two crashed shortly after takeoff from on its way to nairobi where the aircraft was a brand new boeing seven three seven max all one hundred fifty seven people on board were killed there and that happened just five months after another accident involving the boeing seven three seven max a lion air jet crashed in the asia in october during takeoff killing all one hundred eighty nine passengers and crew will bring has been under pressure to deliver a software fix
12:20 am
a new training package for pilots to address the problem well john hendren joins us live now from chicago where that shareholders meeting is taking place john so this is boeing's first shareholder meeting since those two fatal crashes what are you expecting to come from the meeting john. well there and this is definitely the toughest time for boeing in recent history and as you said dennis millen berg had to directly address a lot of these questions interestingly the hardest questions came not from shareholders but from the press in a news conference afterwards during the meeting itself it was pretty routine some people who were shareholders expressed a bit of disappointment but they went ahead they approved nikki haley the former ambassador to the united nations as a board member she has been critical of boeing's response to those crashes as well but it was afterwards that milam berg was asked tough questions like had he ever considered resigning short answer was no but he went on to say we recognize we're
12:21 am
deeply sorry we recognize the gravity of these events and he says the new plane after fixes and after training of those pilots will be one of the safest airplanes ever to fly he acknowledges that he said we have work to do to earn and really earn that trust of passengers but this comes with another bit of bad news in reporting over the past twenty four hours here in the u.s. the wall street journal has reported that southwest airlines was told that one of the one of the problems with that plane this alert that would have told the pilot that two sensors were disagreeing on the angle of lift of that plane that that was optional the pilots were never in the previous version that was a standard bit of equipment but on the new version you had to pay more to get that and the folks at southwest airlines said they didn't even know that so there's been a lot of criticism there nevertheless a company is moving ahead it was
12:22 am
a fairly ordinary shareholder meeting otherwise but the company remains under pressure and its stock is down significantly since that last crash yet and john just briefly i mean boeing's on the growing pressure to get the seventy seven months back into the sky is that any indication as to when that will happen. well there they'd hope to do this by april and they've pushed the date back for recertification and training to may late may now what they have to do is this software fix and they have to train pilots in how to use it because this was simply an upgrade from one type of seven thirty seven to another they really didn't have to go through all that you have to go through with a new plane in order to get certification for it in this case though now after those crashes it is clear that they have to do that in the airlines aren't simply trusting that timeline southwest airlines and american airlines to the biggest customers for the seven thirty seven max have both said they're going to put off
12:23 am
all flights with that plane until mid august so the c.e.o. of boeing points out that he has actually been on test flights of that plane you can bet that there's going to be a pretty high profile rollout when that happens in there will be a lot of focus on safety he insists it will be one of the safest planes in the air nevertheless the company has lost more than ten percent of its value interestingly at the when the company reported its earnings last week shares actually went up slightly and that suggests that investors are pretty much over this but the big question is what about passengers are they going to climb onto that plane and that remains the open question all right john hendren there in chicago john thank you. the opposition leader in the democratic republic of congo running to his supporters to call for the removal of president phoenix's a teddy martin for new claims a presidential election last december was rigged just ahead to replace joseph kabila to rule the country for eighteen years reports the thousands of

12:27 am
countries to a peaceful resolution and this happens to be one of the secondary issues and although it is very serious human beings are involved compared to the issue kashmir the compared to the usual terrorism this does not come you know in the forefront so i would say that they can resolve it if they vote to but and actually in round one is on record when he came to power he said if india takes one step market's down but it will take two instead of that what we saw was the escalation on the battle front and the downing of indian planes and the planes into blackest are so there is no will add the present time. there is a theory right now going on all this that that all this is happening on the dangers of it in india and pakistan this is happening because there is no there there is an election going on and mr modi wants to win the election because of pakistan but
12:28 am
i don't but my personal analysis is that when the election is over the problems will remain the same the issue because we were living in the same issue or fisherman will remain the same this girlies of fishermen will continue to be this technique will continue to be exercised in the days ahead as it means to be denied the level of. interventions indonesia's president has decided to move the capital city joker we don't know says the main island of java is too crowded but how can finalize a new location the current capital jakarta is home to more than ten million people around three times that live in the surrounding towns. iran's foreign minister is accusing israel saudi arabia and the u.a.e. of trying to push the united states into a conflict speaking on morning television in the u.s. i'm a judge or jury if said those nations are fueling already escalating tensions with
12:29 am
terror and in an attempt to force america into another war one he says the president trump doesn't even want. do you have all shown any interest in tracking the united states into a conflict i do not believe the president wants to do that i believe president from iran on a campaign promise of knotting bringing the united states into another war but i believe president trumps intention to put pressure the policy of maximum pressure on iran in order to bring iran to its knees so that we will succumb to pressure is doomed to failure u.s. security advisor john bolton has responded to allegations that he is one of those trying to spark regime change. honestly don't you want to see regime change just not the only way to get an iran that has been a threat to the neighbor you just laid out a real bill of particulars why are wired such a bad actor in the region well look the people of iran i think deserve

12:32 am
everyone we talked to knows of the danger to users of business comes first however this drug trafficker told us he worried the fentanyl boom could actually damage businesses so in the long term. i think is going to cause a problem because there's so many user deaths there will come a moment when the federal government's going to put more and more blocks on this and it will be a lot tougher to do business. in a lower as police chief says his force is already working with u.s. agencies to do just that on the day of a visit they just made the first fence and taking thousands of pills the chinese government's also acting they've now banned the drug that will make it harder from its can gangsters to get their hands on it but they're notorious for always finding a way. to think that the organized crime groups who are behind all of this will stay with their arms crossed would be very in adequate so we intend to keep on the lookout and make sure we adapt to any changes in changes could be coming

12:53 am
how that transition government should look like we heard from the spokesman from the military council spokesman. that they wanted a seven seven represents a seventy seven member a percentage from the military council and three civilian something the coalition is not happy about so they say that they will be discussing a presentation from the coalition to see what comes up next for the transfer period . for the time being heba just say they weren't going to go back. in khartoum because i think he's taking questions this is listening to what he has to. be to wave their majority. and the word more with the. declaration of. the first question was about the points of view and the visions of the other organisations and the civilian organisation i

free movement so we did not ask them to stop the sit in in however we are both understand didn't have great understanding and with together and that we are sure that we will get into a solution to give up the majority where are we still negotiating and we are talking. and we are still in the stage of defining the different or for it is and the competent. authorities and. this is something we will agree on the level of representation. yes yes. yes she will give you.

12:58 am
regarding how can we convention the public opinion that we want to change into civilian. authority and we keep the majority of military at seven to three we would say that we have declared that all the executive powers would be totally civilians and that what matters that require the military to take the side of the people in order to secure their revolution to take place this is something that would require the military forces to take part because it is the only organisation that. has. the authority to deal and it is competent. to represent this kind of. the problem it is not the quantity. in the military and civilians within the

1:00 am
that the transitional government and how it should look like the military council wanted a military a transitional government with civilian representation and we heard from. that the coalition wanted it to be a civilian a transitional government with military representation and they wanted eight civilians and seven military presentations and that transitional government. also seemed to be putting some kind of blame on the opposition coalition he said that they reached a certain point of agreement during their last talks on saturday and that. today on monday morning when they started their talks with the coalition the coalition presented a different idea something they were not expecting which is why they will be going back to to their respective members we consult and then convene again tomorrow guarding the presentation that was offered by the coalition of the declaration of freedom and change now that presentation of course from what we understand is known as the declaration of the constitution which is supposed to set the blueprint for the transitional period the coalition apparently
