says turkey fears a major refugee crisis if the situation gets worse. we have seen some of the really radical factions in the lead actually launching missiles at russian air base and maim him so it's coming from both sides it's. quite difficult to tell if this is sort of a self ignited escalation or if there's a larger plan behind it from either side of any major offensive trying to do that would cause it we were. real crisis fortunately in particular and that's why the turks have made it very clear to russia that they don't want that to happen in any circumstances and they have been has been some progress in terms of having she had the troops all right according to the patrols along the ceasefire line turkey's a russian controlled but it's not enough it's clearly not enough progress i mean these missiles that have been shot recently showing now that that show it needs to

provocations do happen and then the civilians of course bear the brunt of it for turkish soldiers have been killed during the fighting in syria and iraq one of the soldiers died in an attack by u.s. backed kurdish y.p. g. forces and terrified turkey has launched an operation in response in the area earlier three turkish soldiers were killed in northern iraq. at least nine soldiers have been killed in the attack on a training camp for forces loyal to the libyan warlord and for halftime after blaming the attack on ethnic taboo forces aligned with the un recognized government in tripoli what to do why does more now from the libyan capital. now have to his forces in the south of libya say that they are calling on their simple command of have to us was in the east of libya to send more troops to sustain and maintain security in this hour that of libya we know that this city of.
3:02 am
forces loyal to the world have heard since february but this has been all was unstable especially since help has forces. campaigns and the there are civil military groups in this i was opponent of the warlords have especially fighters and also fighters from little while to get minority in the south of libya. some of the armed groups in the south of of libya which are opponent to help that some of them are allied with the recognized government and others are allied with it on tribal affiliations some of the tribes and also the to world trade generally speaking of libya there are civil airports and also oil fields or who have been taken control of by have to recently but
3:03 am
the situation now remains very honest people specially after most of the troops have put have troops that have been controlling and securing the airport in the cells have moved to the north to take part in the offensive line should they have their forces to take control of the capital tripoli. the u.s. president says he'll eventually get a denuclearization agreement with north korea despite more apparent weapons tests donald trump tweeted that kim jong un doesn't want to break the promise he's made to him and that a deal will happen weapons experts are analyzing several rocket launches detected on saturday by south korea's defense ministry which one hundred joins us live now from washington d.c. john so what do these launches say about north korea's motivations here and what do you make of donald trump's response. well there and everybody except donald trump here in the u.s. seems to view this is a major provocation and whether it's
3:04 am
a show of desperation or a legitimate show of force as a matter of. you know your own point of view but it's been viewed as an escalation that it's clear sign that north korea's kim jong il is dissatisfied with the negotiations he walked away from talks in hanoi in february with president trump with out the sanctions relief that he was seeking and meanwhile he's given up a new nuclear testing in intercontinental ballistic missile testing so they don't have a complete nuclear agreement but i think kim seems to feel that he's really not getting what he wants out of this deal and not getting it quickly enough so we launched the myth the biggest provocation since november of two thousand and seventeen when north korea did launch a series of intercontinental ballistic missiles his frustration is clearly showing that president trump seems persistently optimistic that tweet you talked about and he goes on to say anything in this very interesting world is possible but i believe
3:05 am
that kim jong un fully realizes the great economic potential of north korea and will do nothing to interfere or ended and he goes on to say that there will be a deal but that has to be enormously frustrating for a north korean leader who wants action and not optimism then so what does go from here john and what happens next. for looks like more nuclear brinksmanship. there will likely be an increasing escalation if kim jong un doesn't feel like he's getting the response that he wants out of the american president the american president right now is not terribly inclined to give him much. meanwhile came a speaking to a domestic audience he's perhaps embarrassed they had a bad crop yield and over the past year people are reportedly starving and he wants to change the subject he wants to show that he has a strong. leader but in the end alternately he's going to need to come with some kind of concrete agreement in order to show that he's achieved something for this
3:06 am
denuclearization talks that have going on with president trump if he doesn't get that it is very likely according to many analysts that eventually he will begin the kinds of testing of intercontinental and possibly even nuclear devices that he has agreed not to do up until now so really it's an open question as to whether he gets what he wants from the american president john thank you or let's also to comment on the news hour including how turkey's economy is expected to be hit by u.s. sanctions on iran. down and out and disillusioned why some south africa so are out on the streets ahead of the coming election. in a sports a long way from within sport as the n.b.a. playoffs village of quadruple overtime for the first time in more than sixty that's coming up in just a little bit like. a

criticized washington's decision jury strict oil trade with iran the development came after iran's president called on his country to resist and unite against the u.s. after it tightened restrictions on terror arms nuclear program the u.s. did not renew two key sanctions way those that were in place iran will now be in violation of the curbs if it continues to ship surplus every water made in the nuclear process to oman the u.s. has also made it harder for iran to dispose of any enriched uranium it's renewed some sanctions waivers that allow russia china the u.k. and france to work with iran on civilian nuclear projects but president hassan rouhani says the u.s. is trying to sow division among iranians. as the united states is violating international laws and pressuring companies to prevent them cooperating with iran and seeking to weaken our currency in the independence of our country there are huge conspiracies against our country and the american administration is waging a political and psychological war against us and is seeking to change the regime in

iran washington aims to spread division in the country and the iranians must unite to face this war. where is the director of the gold studies center at qatar university he says the u.s. is still fixated with iran's oil industry. the american administration and the tram they wanted to basically blocked iran exporting even one millimeter of it runs. so that is the core of the business and the other way it is there is not actually affect the whole concept the united states now want to make sure the iran cannot import any bottle from second of me and that basically will lead that iran will lose the main source of revenue for its own actually budget which means more economy problems more pressure on the regime which basically put the regime in the corner that is the main thing now what is now all of those waivers this speak about i think the right to show that they are actually taken into consideration the
3:11 am
interest of other countries especially u.k. germany other countries basically none of the countries now they are saying we are actually committing ourselves with what the trump wants so they are keeping silent now because. we will wait a few weeks before the impact of this. decision on their economy so none of those countries now is actually saying that you know we are against this however it seems that all of these countries are waiting who will be ringing the bell first and saying actually no our economy would be on the other trouble if we actually accept this kind of pressure from the united states on the oil sector of iran turkey's economy is expected to continue to slump as the u.s. imposes further sanctions on iran's oil industry turkey is a major iranian customer but is having to look elsewhere for its energy supplies some cost the only reports now from istanbul. iran is the second largest oil

a rich history of information about our changing climate and species this is siberia bike scientists recently found that one creature living here with extreme survival skills might be crucial to the discovery of new antibiotics the enfeebled at ku station often mistaken for a shrimp produces bacteria that can be used to cure infections in humans. from of nerve sort of course it's very significant for humans who would we do here because we are now facing increasing resistance to existing interviewer six meaning that there could be as you said used to work are less effective for these. before this new antibiotics can be used on humans a lot more research needs to be done some pharmaceutical companies have already shown interest it usually takes ten years before a newly discovered antibiotics are produced the institute is also using the crustaceans to study the effects of climate change and other and via mental changes under even creatures by injecting micro sensors in their tiny bodies by observing
3:16 am
different kinds of crustaceans living in different depths of the lake they hope to obtain information about how humans can adapt as well scientists believe that this immense lake not only holds the cure to diseases but also the answer to and fire mental challenges our planet is facing but this league is still largely unexplored and to reveal its secrets some say the government should change its strategy and change the lake into an international high tech research project so far lake baikal is mostly used as a tourist attraction and source for drinking water scientists say the world's largest freshwater reservoir can be better protected if it's turned into a center for biotechnological research instead rio limited to more than twenty five cents. a lot of questions which can be studied but printed five thousand scientists and by eco. unpatched resource of new.

technology in biotech forward nobody really knows about environmentalists say they support the idea gonski at the. i believe this is a gigantic nature a library which can be source of information for an endless number of years can be part of our research for certain means of adaptation to life on this planet of if we learn how to use this bank then this can contribute to our lives and the habit of the lake can be protected and the government didn't respond to requests to comment on the plan one of the obstacles to attract scientists to lake baikal could be the extreme weather conditions in siberia but while temperatures can reach minus thirty celsius in winter deep inside the lake the temperature has stayed the same for millions of years there are stations who can live up to twenty years and could hold the answer to the secret of a long life at least that is what scientists are eager to find out step fastened
