imperative come from because the relationship it occurs to me between mexico city and washington has been wholly and utterly negative for the past 2 years and then something clicked something changed maybe 10 days 2 weeks ago and the choreography was wrapped up in very positive language. yeah you're exactly right you know what seems to be the immediate condition for why this occurred was the presentation of the us southwest border to the city of el paso of approximately 1000 migrants and it seemed as if that just. the president on this course but i think that what changed the dynamic was 2 things number one the government of mexico presented itself very willing to negotiate it did not cut back it did not push back and take a nationalistic stance and said ok we understand this we're going to try to work together to resolve it that was the 1st step the 2nd step with what the president of the united states only heard negative responses to his initiative the response
was uniform from the business community which rejected this many in congress including republicans said this is not the way to proceed so he really in some ways needed to have a solution to this because many people who would normally be supportive of some of the white house initiatives clearly were not on the side so i think the politics of the somewhat well and what's your reading briefly erick once we get to the stage where sarah sondos is on twitter talking about this for example you know donald trump has had a 5 day european tour pictures of him state visit her majesty queen elizabeth good headlines fox news likes that kind of thing and now he's got a double whammy because i guess his people will say mexico is doing what we've been telling mexico to do. well i think that's right there will be a certain amount of triumphalism here and crow and i think my personal view is that would be a mistake to look at the mexico is going to be a neighbor for ever of the united states. it's being too triumphalist about this
will cause mexico in fact to have to resist in some way i think a much better approach would simply be to say we're working together with our friends south of the border we're trying to address some very difficult issues together and just move forward. eric thank you very much thank you. moving on if he appears prime minister has called for a speedy democratic transition in sudan as he tries to mediate in the political crisis between the military juncture and the opposition which is demanding a civilian government had met protest leaders in khartoum days after a military crackdown left more than 100 protesters dead the opposition says is open to talks but only if certain conditions are met. first the military council needs to recognize that the crime was committed secondly there needs to be an international investigation into the dispersal of the sit in fairly all political detainees and all political prisoners held by the previous regime need to be
released there needs to be freedom of speech and the media the military needs to be pulled from the streets and the internet ban needs to be lifted until all the demands are met we will not hold talks on a future political process. well the ethiopian leader also met members of the military council in khartoum however gen mohammad harm done to garlow who leads the so-called rapid support forces was notably absent sudan's foreign ministry says the council is open for dialogue and the president of the transitional military council abdel fatah confirmed that the council is open for negotiations and reaching a solution at any time and god willing this mediation will have a good result. there are now reports that one of the protest leaders has been detained mohamed as he was part of the delegation that attended talks with in the capital natasha condemn as more.
knowing even this small act of defiance a. small group of people gathered in khartoum on friday after prayers they continued their call for the transitional military council to transfer power to the people. i know in the city of. they were shouting in. stead of prayer and reflection at this mosque worshipers thought the a man was a mouthpiece for the military on top and kicked him out. more than 100 people have been killed since june 3rd when the military began cracking down on protests i can pick up on this right now and i think right now the better so if i have to be united even more and we are determined now more than ever more than before to end this and to start a new chapter. a paramilitary group called the rapid support forces is accused of
murder and rape to silence protesters want accountability. and also. we want and your military. mission to hand over with a civil suit billions. d.f.c. . forces. now the transitional military council is choking off access to the internet to hide these crimes in the street all free about must see you know sadness when i sing this is not the way to go any country. ethiopian prime minister ahmet arrived in the capital and brought the group representing protesters the alliance for freedom and change back to negotiations with the transitional military council the prime minister has endorsed. on behalf of ethiopia to represent
him as a special envoy as well as a special envoy from the african union as well and they will be staying within the course of the next 2 days to further in-depth discussions with both parties and ensure that whatever has been started today and most of the decisions that have been confirmed today will find fruition over the next few days. a general strike is planned for sunday the streets of khartoum once filled with hopeful chanting are now eerily quiet. however slowly the videos documenting the attacks are spreading well beyond sudan natasha going to 0. plenty more still to come for you here on the all to see the news hour including we'll examine the role of kazakstan is growing use movement in the forthcoming presidential election. and in the sport. inside of a record 12 title the french open. amnesty
international is urging saudi arabia to rule out the death penalty for a teenage boy more toucher called racists was arrested 5 years ago at the age of 13 for taking part in anti-government protests he's been detained ever since caresses faces possible execution for a series of offenses some of which date back to when he was just 10 years old he is currently awaiting his next trial session bringing in early director of the gulf affairs institute who joins us on skype from washington. what is it allegedly that this child did. joe. comes from a family of protesters is rather and he was killed in the protest his younger days all that were there also was in jail in his father's work and he was as a child took part in this bicycling children bicycling protest famous and that
happened in 2000 in november 2012 so he was in front of that protest so he was riding his bicycle along with a few dozen. children part of the the protest movement that time so the saudis are charging him with leading a protest for the saudis for the saudi court system he's a is not an issue because they consider anybody who was 10 years old as an adult but just to be clear if this happens this flies in the face of every international statute and law against the execution of a minor. this saudi government has executed children before including in in the past few months in april and it has done that over the years i have recorded many cases of that looting the cases of the 7 mostly young.
men who want to executed it's nice here in 2013 and many of them were were not can anyone and they were when they went to the a lot of minors. here is one of the youngest to be. you know sentence or. sought to be executed we had another child executed in just one. had to be his last name and he was executed when he was 14 years old so this is nothing new to the saudi court system which does not. hold the minimum of international standard when it comes to. the seizures or the need good protection that the international community has said and when you talk about the legal system there and the court sally does this chime in with a broader debate that's going on not in saudi arabia but outside saudi arabia about
the specialized criminal court where what it does seems very far reaching but slightly vague you know you you couldn't put on top of it or umbrella or it with what you and i would understand as being legal strictures from another framework. well number one in this special is criminal court of the even me this would be legal challenge meaning that it was formed without the necessary saudis saudi laws. that's number one but generally the quota system side is not consistent with international. standards it has been the case it's a very it's for example set up by fact court that's what i call it because it's really it's an up up that court does not allow most of the population to work as judges or to be persecutors part of the crime of the process secondly it's not
independent it's part of the special specialized what is part of the security up at this so they're out of s.e.p. having a can go to court with the preset sentencing so everything that they spend their time on is just for show it's not because the judge knows what's going to happen regardless of what so any defense and the lawyers does not make any difference it's really everything except about a very briefly i mean we're almost out of time what's the signal here to the shia minority and then there's a war and i can tell you i recently contact even with early people they have basically cut off any connection to the some state they want out from the southeast and that is basically there is not the right war and that community and their history and their existence so this is the worst ever in the history. between government and. the country and i left that in washington thank you.
who the rebels in yemen have released new images showing what they say are the key saudi military positions they've captured close to the border the rebels say they've killed dozens of soldiers near the southern city of not sure on who the media released these pictures showing fighting scenes and weapons seized from the saudi emirates the coalition as well as images showing what they claim is the wreckage of an american made drone aircraft. the u.s. is raising the stakes in its standoff with turkey over ankara's plans to purchase russian air defenses the 2 nato allies have sparred for months now over turkey's ordering of russia's s. $400.00 defense system washington will reportedly give ankara until the end of july to backtrack on the deal if not the u.s. will start taking steps to remove turkey from the f. $35.00 fighter jet program robert pearson is the former u.s. ambassador to turkey he joins us now from raleigh north carolina mr ambassador why
is it come to this. it's come to this audience off for number of years the u.s. has recognized that the s 400 system isn't dead and where if the nato. operations and from the turkish side perhaps they had an opportunity earlier in the us had an opportunity earlier to make a better offer on the patriot system i don't know their history but i do wonder whether there was a time earlier then today when the us to have made a more generous offer on the system but it's come to this because but turkey has decided to move ahead with the us who aren't since which is completely incompatible with the f. 35 fighter jet and it would be impossible to allow her to be used to test the s 100 system and vice versa it would be in danger of american aircraft and
american forces all over the world is the reality slightly different here and as much as i missed it one of the turkish military may feel they need a better military but they've actually galt's from a technical point of view a very good military as that as it stands at the moment. they do indeed and while nobody questions the turks trying to use but the side really want or a missile the best since the one does have to wonder i guess whom is the missile winston's the many of their cold turkey is cooperating with iran well i guess it is that serious surely the russians are not giving the turks the software they were allowed to shoot down syrian aircraft so it is a puzzle why bother they in the idea that this is a show piece of turkey's determination to have a modern military they have to acquire a system of deadly and this threatening has the s. $100.00 since them now but if we view turkey through the prism of nato nato ally
the intially base of course which was so headline grabbing during the 1990 s. in the early 2001 says it's about the relationship of the dynamic between say mr and mr putin that's making mr tilt in a known obvious direction when perhaps he should be moving towards his nato populace. well i think the main reason is that what mr eric to i'm desperately wants to see favors from the russian with respect to the future security of syria or turkey including the right to have a presence we enter in or we need and northeastern syria where the syrian kurds have been writing the. regime and have been riding high since so i think he thinks that by doing enough labors for the russians he will get some leverage from him and he's
agreeing with in the end there are certain security and i think it's a false hope in the russians and shown in their recent operations in italy or province after or waiting for the church to do something about group al qaeda related errors there they aren't there for us they are to clear the progress of those forces ignoring to richard quest you know and ignore importance designers are you saying mr ambassador that in your opinion there have been off the radar conversations then between ankara moscow and the conversation goes something like look pivot towards us forget about your relationship with donald trump because that's not an easy good relationship anyway just from the get go and if you if we get to a stage where syria is calmer than it is at the moment maybe post bashar al assad the words autonomy can maybe be used or you can do what you want overall just turn a blind eye. well they'll have to do
a deal that would involve damascus of course it has sunk in well it's but basically the turks would be very happy if the recent broker an arrangement with damascus then would allow turkey a greater freedom of action in northeastern syria and along the border including us our border where the turks have invested a lot of money here in the infrastructure and so on in the hopes that $1.00 day those would be it and it's the government this is they be it in northern iraq but by the way now the last war brother of his'n family u.s. ambassador to turkey we appreciate your time sir many thanks we thank you very much the u.s. has impose new sanctions on iran's petrochemical industry that targeting iran's biggest petrochemical grouping over its financial support for tehran's islamic revolutionary guard corps the elite military units in charge of iran's ballistic a nuclear missile programs it was added to washington's list of terror

the weather sponsored by cattle and raise. hello there we're seeing lots of wet weather over the southeastern parts of china actually this system runs all the way up towards japan but it's still dragging its feet across us and it's going to stick around as we head through the next few days of yet more very heavy downpours and the threat of seeing more flooding out of this to even further south i think we'll see some fairly sharp showers particularly over the northern parts of vietnam again is looking like we're going to see a few showers there for the towards the south and there's plenty of downpours here as well many of them have a pulse of borneo stretching their way towards the west we're also see some through parts of thailand and cambodia as well in the south there own says many showers say
