10:02 pm
provocations by the regime have reached an acceptable level i would like to say it is especially by our borders our right to self-defense and this leaves us no choice we have to act to protect ourselves i discuss this matter with my honorable friend the president and i've said we're happy to work to cooperate with in the spirit. we and our turkish partners have serious concerns about the deescalation zone and live terrorist continue to show russian positions and syrian forces they try to attack russian bases we hope that the deescalation zone will be a refuge for the rebels and should not be a platform to make attacks we discuss joint measures to neutralize terrorist hotbeds and adlib and to normalize a situation in this region and in syria as a whole we spoke with mr erdogan about it in detail and we found understanding on how and what we can do together to resolve these issues step back and has more from moscow where the talks were held. it was an unusual venue to have this high level
10:03 pm
meeting between the turkish and the russian president had an airfield one was treated to this extensive air show and there was a lot of further discussions about buying possible new fighter jets or any other weapons but of course the main focus of this whole important meeting was the situation in the one had already told president putin that he is fearing an humanitarian crisis and also sees this as a threat to turkish national security put in of course was expected by the want to rein in the syrian forces that have been threatening also turkish troops but there hasn't been any confirmation that that's going to happen what both leaders have said they are going to announce or they announce new measures to neutralize these rebels but no detail about what they exactly are going to do together which was in contradiction with what happened in april when both leaders also matt
10:04 pm
discussed the same topic then the decision was made to have these joint patrols which also never materialized so russia has actually been increasingly growing impatient with what has been achieved after this meeting in sochi last year when the agreement militarized zone was agreed and also turkey had agreed to disarm the rebels and that also has now for materialized so no concessions from the part of russia here but a lot of talk about how in times the relationship between the 2 countries has become and possibly new arms sales they have been discussing the ass to 35 and also the new as to 57 and there seems that the turkish president was interested and keen to buy more after these controversial as 400 and type of missile defense systems which were very much deplored by nato and the 2nd batch
10:05 pm
actually has arrived in turkey today. it in and out are one also welcomed the creation of a so-called safe zone of control in northern syria kurdish led forces have begun withdrawing their fighters near the border with turkey it's part of a deal between ankara and washington the u.s. has been backing the kurdish s.d.f. but turkey views the group as a terrorist organization that smith has more from antakya on turkey's role in syria's war. time bird one's dash to moscow was partly because of the challenge that the turkish military now finds itself with it has a dozen observation posts in what are supposed to be deescalation zones in northwestern syria or one of those is now marooned in what is now syrian regime controlled territory because it was taken back in fighting last week and the syrian regime is pushing against other areas in this deescalation zone and these observation posts risk falling back into territory under syrian control erdogan
10:06 pm
wants to make sure that those turkish soldiers are not threatened by a longer term challenge for the turkish president is how much longer he needs to keep or wants to keep the soldiers in those observation posts when what was a deescalation zone is now territory under syrian control similar at the same time syrian kurdish forces that they have pulled back from the turkish border up to 17 kilometers they're pulling heavy weapons and troops but only from the countryside not from the towns in the cities it's nothing close to what the turks were asking for they wanted them at least 30 kilometers away from the border but this is a u.s. brokered arrangement and it's something that for now turkey is going to have to live with. brazil's president says his government will find its own solution to the crisis of the amazon fires without international help he spoke
10:07 pm
a day after g 7 nations pledged $20000000.00 to help fight the flames and protect the rain forests but tomorrow has accused rich countries of treating brazil like a colony he says brazil is rejecting the g. 7 offer unless french president apologizes for recent comments. we will find a solution and we will give the world satisfaction even people like the french president emanuel mccrone must think twice he wants to get out of a complicated situation like this huge rejection he's facing his own country before starting with us nobody here is against dialogue with france not at all and we think the work of the g 7. well really the french president emmanuel criticised his brazilian counterpart for refusing to accept aid from the g 7 to fight the amazon fires because as the world cannot allow the arms in to be destroyed by the actions of brazil's government. becomes even more
10:08 pm
a sovereign country and when we have major events we accept international solidarity because it's a sign of friendship but above all there are 9 countries in the amazon and many other countries ask for help it's important to mobilize it quickly so that colombia believe year and brazil in regions that it would like to have access to this international help can have it and can reforest quickly if you don't know shanna joins me live from that part of earlier in northwest brazil so this spat between both an hour and not becoming down and told it. no it's been going on for some days and it's more than just political this is got very personal if you remember it actually started with also now roll posting a facebook page with photographs of him and his wife and his wife bridgette saying that his wife was pretty and so that was how the insults started obviously there's a much bigger issue at play here the future of the amazon rain forest so this will get wrapped up in these very personal insults flying between one and the other in
10:09 pm
this very difficult situation and what about the progress they were dealing with the fires themselves. what element of fires are pretty much brought under control the army has been brought in they've been dealing with the fires the rainy season has begun here present job also now has just had a meeting with the governors from the amazonian states if anything he was being defiant in the face of the criticism from the international community specifically the g 7 saying some of the governors was saying they simply don't have the resources to protect the vast areas of rain forest others were saying they need to develop the more they need to they have in some of the states 80 percent 85 percent of the land is protected by there was a nature reserve or as a indigenous land and if missouri is going to escape poverty it needs to go into these places and develop more that implies developers coming in chopping down trees
10:10 pm
setting fire to the land and if anything when the dry season comes around next year if that is the case they would likely to be even more fires and we've seen this year. thank you very much indeed. the grim existence of women trafficked from nigeria is being highlighted in a new report victims of trafficking described how they prayed for death or cried until they couldn't cry anymore human rights watch says an unknown number of nigerian women have been forced into sexual slavery and physical labor many before the age of 17 the report says the support for survivors is inadequate and existing systems are the failed to help or sometimes breach victims rights human rights watch has recommended an overhaul of the country's support system and says nigeria's government has to do more to prevent trafficking i've missed or jambos the author of the report. they are forced to work for long hours without rest they are confined some of them i can find in a building they're not allowed to talk to their family lives sometimes they're not
10:11 pm
even allowed to be friends with the other girls that have been trafficked there's a lot of violence you know a lot of threats when girls were seized or say they are not able to work many of them say they got pregnant they were forced to undergo abortions in very unsanitary conditions and then they're why charge for both for most abortions and immediately after they have to start working and then they watch on their own so much money you know something like 20000 euros so really they remain being very traumatized and very distressed they come they have come back with a lot of pain and with a lot of trauma and poverty unfortunately is the night man does not and when they come back to nigeria because many of the government side this is our last king and . some of them are locked up in government run shelters where they are not allowed to leave will they're not allowed to communicate with the families almost
10:12 pm

10:14 pm
parts of tunis and you attempt to there at about $34.00 degrees by the time we get towards thursday though that temperature does drop but we still could be seeing a few active showers across much of the region over here towards morocco rain could be a problem with her but at 26 degrees. this is a dialogue which easy side not to have children to say that and it's like a steak is really human survival everyone has a voice that has started to put our community because of course this is a debate and it's a heated one this is a little be patient to be able to do teach and i believe join the global conversation and people i think if only they knew what is happening to labor laws then. they will be always up and they will be outraged on out is iraq.
10:15 pm
from one of the top stories here now to syria the turkish president. has met his russian counterpart vladimir putin in moscow the 2 leaders discussed how to end the fighting in syria is a live province as well as future weapons deals. brazil's president has rejected an offer of $20000000.00 from g 7 countries to help fight fires in the amazon rain forest area both sonar says his government will find its own solution to the crisis without international help. and human rights watch report into trafficking in nigeria says the government's support for survivors of sexual slavery and forced physical labor is inadequate but added that more needs to be done to prevent trafficking. a spokesman for the taliban delegation in qatar says talks with the
10:16 pm
u.s. and now in their final stages on monday president said there was no timeline to reaching an agreement which could end the 18 year conflict in afghanistan but taliban delegate who has told al jazeera a deal is close it's a good progress if you can see show you. also focus in the us so on the progress in this stuff so we are to finalizing. that meaning part you know look at the data that shows the remaining point 0 to finalize so they didn't miss something which involved is remaining the last quote. iran's president says his country will not hold talks on any nuclear deal with the u.s. unless all sanctions are lifted her son rouhani is comments come a day after u.s. president donald trump said at the g. 7 summit in france he was open to meeting the iranian leader president many records
10:17 pm
offered to facilitate talks between the 2 sides rouhani insists washington must take the 1st step for talks to happen that's a big has more from tehran. president rouhani has been speaking in front this morning and he took the opportunity to address some of the news coming out of the g. 7 mainly that donald trump has said that he's willing to meet president rouhani if the conditions are right now what president rouhani has said is he's reiterated the iranian line that there will be no talks and only goshi ations as long as the u.s. sanctions are in place he said that all sanctions against iranian nation must be lifted that are illegitimate and cruel now iran has referred to the sanctions as economic terrorism. experts have been drastically reduced the banking sector has been affected and the economy has also been affected president rouhani said that he did not see any positive developments unless the united states change the wrong path it was on now this is very different from what president rouhani said yesterday because what he suggested they gave people some hope that he was willing
10:18 pm
to sit down and talk to president donald trump president rouhani said yesterday that if he had to attend a meeting with somebody or someone to forward in national cause and to alleviate the people's problems he would do that for the national interest now overnight that seems to have changed and that could be because of the supreme leader ayatollah khomeini who decides all the major policy directions because in the past he has said that iran will not sit down with the united states as long as the sanctions are in place in fact he's called it double poison basically saying that you are centuries sitting down with the very people that are making your country suffer so it looks like there has been a change overnight and iran is reiterating its positions that there are no talks no negotiations as long as 2 u.s. sanctions are in place. u.k. opposition parties have agreed to work together to find a way to legislate against a no deal breck's it also not ruled out using a confidence vote to bring down prime minister boris johnson is committed to
10:19 pm
leaving the e.u. on october 31st with or without a deal parliament returns from its summer break next week and opposition leader jeremy corbyn has been contacting m.p.'s of all parties to drum up support. i'm britain to all 116 m.p.'s that voted against no deal to ask them if they would recognise the importance next week of supporting a legislative approach which would be an all party approach to ensure we don't crash with all the problems that will create. there and seeing as more from westminster in central london for months now the main criticism of the and see brics it remain in the e.u. policies has been that they spend far too much time bickering with each other and not enough time coming out with some joint position on the out so. oppose and if it breaks it but eventually at this point at the end of the summer with parliament starting next week it looks as if they are trying to suggest that they've got their
10:20 pm
act together and are behaving in a in the united way so gone for the time being seems to be the suggestion of holding a no confidence vote in boris johnson his government's just on the grounds that they couldn't win because there aren't enough conservatives who would support that position because it make it look like they're in the pockets of jeremy colvin the labor party leader but instead what these opposition parties have now said is that they will do when they can see a legislate against a no deal breakers and to force a delay in the process so the u.k. doesn't end up leaving on october 31st which is what boris johnson has absolutely vowed will happen and so to that end the main calendar date looks like it'll be something around september the 9th when parliament debates issues to do with northern ireland and of all governments it looks like they will try to add bits on to force that to late in the deal but it's one thing saying they will do that is quite another actually being able to do it because as we saw earlier this year parliament voted repeatedly against no deal and yet it still remains the option because they couldn't find anything else to vote for and so the next thing all
10:21 pm
these opposition parties have to do is to think of something else that replaces a no deal brecht's which could command a majority in parliament otherwise the threat of no deal is as they would see it remains on the table and i think at this point you'd be you'd be a fool to rule out a national election because in my end up still being the only way to break the deadlock. italy's interior minister matteo serbian he has banned another mediterranean charity ship from entering italian waters the german vessel is carrying 101 people who were rescued making a crossing from north africa to europe comes as at least 5 people have been killed and around 40 more are missing after a boat bound for europe capsized 15 kilometers off the coast of libya united nations refugee agency says around $65.00 people have been rescued and taken to the coastal city of homs. the families of palestinians whose bodies have been withheld by israel have been marking an annual national day demanding their return
