full time this week. correspondent in budapest has picked a whole bunch of government bonds to far. i'm christine one but welcome to the program turkey's foreign minister says u.s. president donald trump told turkish president richard to one that washington is working on extraditing turkey's most wanted man turkey has a long sought the extradition off the muslim cleric it's one of the man on current ses was behind the failed military coup in twenty sixteen and has lived in the united states for almost twenty years he denies any involvement in the coup attempt . foreign minister. who say discussed the matter at the g twenty summits two weeks ago this. these guys and. the other. others in this
organization eighty four names that we have to cross the united states break said i if you would so i took. him a. while last time when we met one of. the presidents from seoul and the one that they have been working rightful more on the story and i'm joined by the correspondence dorian jones in istanbul and stefan siemens in washington gentlemen hello to you both jeff and i want to start with you have there any been reactions to the statements in the u.s. no i'm afraid not not as of now at this point nobody rect it officially or unofficially nothing from sources and nothing from officially from the white house state department or department of justice those of the three to entities who are actually involved in any decision going to be made in terms of extraditing mr goulden fits in the gloom and perhaps we won't hear anything until tomorrow or not at all because there are suspicions from observers and experts that maybe something
got lost in translation there between president trump and president adelong because of course the d.o.j. and the u.s. government is looking at the request of turkey to extradite mr fetzer log but that this is going to happen any time soon it's rather unlikely and has not changed what sort of. story and i want to bring you in why is extraditing so important for the turkish government. well some turkish ministers have gone as far as to describe him as turkey's osama bin laden and reason why he's seen as such of danger he says he's not only blamed for masterminding the failed coup attempt for his network of followers but according to uncreate he says those followers are still posing a threat to turkish democracy and every week now we're seeing more and more of the hundreds of his followers a legit follows being detained on top of the tens of thousands that have been held since that failed coup and beyond also looking to washington to crack down on the.
believed to be vast business networks across the united states which anchor claims to be bankrolling his network and further undermining turkey's democracy. stefan what is the position off the u.s. government on this issue. the u.s. government holds one position and that is that the turks have to present proof of what they're saying and alleging in terms of the involvement of mr gillum in the coup from two thousand and sixteen and as soon as this proof is sufficient then they are going through the motions of. approving or assessing this this proof and the evidence and then make a decision if there's grounds for an extradition however again i say days three entities involved in this is not just the why does it is the department of justice and they're looking at this proof as i mentioned and then there's the state department which also will assess how much diplomatic damage or benefit
a extradition of mr golan to turkey would again for the united states since this is not just about mr gillon but also about the relationship between the united states and turkey when it comes to the u.s. support for example kurdish fighters in northern iraq and in syria as well as turkey's role in syria as well as turkey's purchase of as four hundred missile systems from russia so we could go in the weeds here but it's really complex and the point is the united states will take its good and does the time to check on all evidence presented by the turks and if this is current then maybe there is some movement there but as long as. it is not happy with what they have i don't think there is will be any movement any time soon during i'll come back to you if and where should be extradited what will this mean for taking. well this could be
a complete game changer in this relationship between these two key nato allies because it has poisoned relations i mean while uncle doesn't expect the immediate extradition of what they expected from the white house is to expedite this process they said it's been more than two years since they put in this request for extradition and it hasn't even reached the courts and this is accusation of the white house and elements of washington have been foot dragging over this they haven't been taking turkey seriously what they want is an expert to expediting this process and until that happens it will fuel suspicions over the ongoing suspicions of whether washington was possibly involved or complicit in the coup which we did hear repeated allegations from key turkish ministers if there was to be a change in washington's attitude of the word process was to be expedited this could open the door to resolving many other issues that have been poisoned by this mistrust over the controversy. stephanie minds is in washington for us and daryn thank you. to budapest now where an estimated ten thousand people marched to
protest two near lawless possed by the country's right wing government it was the fourth demonstration this weekend the biggest anti-government protest angry has seen. be it's the fourth protests like this in a week i chose the streets in budapest marching against the government i think the protest response by a controversial label or dubbed by demonstrators as the slave law that allows companies to demand four hundred hours of overtime a year and then delay the payment for up to three years. protesters are also angered by the government's plan to create a new system of courts which critics fear won't be independent of the country's prime minister viktor orban. demonstration was organized by labor unions and opposition groups they're worried about the direction of the country and the band.
that we have unfortunately reached the point where the government interferes with almost every bit of people's every day life in cultural administration labor and health care about you know on the long haul i think the discontent is growing and with this not only anger and frustration but also those voices which would like to make change i think this is a process where we are trying to come up with new ideas that go back to that that mean us in a similar missions it's like a peace i this is one of the biggest attempts by opposition groups in hungary to oppose addict all bans leadership shining a light on what opposition voices see as hungry slide into a third tarion rule. ok for more let's cross over to what has now a reporter stefan also is standing by. who exactly is taking part in these protests . well i think it's several groups these are definitely open parties bunch of
old so trade unions and what is very interesting i think that many people are participating as well in d.c. demonstrations and i think that is something very and prime minister viktor orban will have to reckon with because it's really also a different generation that to take part in these protests today it's different how has the government responded. well the government has responded quite angrily a spokesperson described to work testers as basically being agents george soros the billionaire of course who has been investing in several human rights groups and also the central european university which by the way has to leave hungary body end of the year they will move to vienna so it is one of the things
government is saying and they really try to play it down and they say these are foreign forces who are supporting this protest us at the same time they also have warrant that they want to keep it peaceful and of course they have seen in recent days that the police are quite a heavy handed at times to watch the protesters. the prime minister viktor orban was relax have via y. magia back in april stefan could these protests dante's popularity. i think he definitely it came as a surprise for to government debt so many people in the what i have to say is really an extremely cool to the night has turned out to not only have today also in recent days and i think they are closely watching holidays will develop i think if indeed to this gains momentum and also in all the areas of hungry a we have seen
a similar protests and then of course it's something the prime minister will have to count which of course that they are trying to make this a wide movement we have seen that in the past then it didn't work and we have to see i think in the coming weeks whether this momentum will go on ok that's stefan vause reporting in the hungarian capital would have passed thank you. now to some of the other stories making news around the world sudan's president omar al bashir has made a short visit to syria he was welcomed to damascus by syrian leader bashar. al bashir is the first arab leader to go to syria since the country's civil war erupted nearly eight years ago. french authorities say a fifth person has died of wounds sustained in the christmas market attack in the city of stress birch the paris prosecutor's office identified the victim only as the polish national police killed the gunman on thursday night after a two day manhunt. more than forty people are reported injured after an
