there's drama there you go it's cold out there. i'm rachel join me to meet the germans on the w. . post. this is deja news live from phailin turkey voices impatience with the u.s. over a longstanding extradition request on carroll wants to put the muslim cleric face you know cool and on trial for office tracing the failed to twenty sixteen coup turkey's foreign minister says it's time for the u.s. to same and hope also coming up. growing discontent in hungary to controversial
new goals mobilize thousands of anti-government protesters for the fourth time this week we'll ask our correspondent in budapest has picked a whole bunch government on to far. i'm christine one but welcome to the program turkey's foreign minister says u.s. president donald trump told turkish president which of the one that washington is working on extraditing turkey's most wanted man turkey has a long sought the extradition off the muslim cleric that'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 attempts. foreign minister. who say discussed the matter at the g twenty summits to be close. these guard and. others in this
organization eighty four names that we have aggressive united states breaks are they sure what it's like. well last time we met one it's not the president from poll after one that they had been working had there any been reactions to the statements in the us no i'm afraid not to not as of now at this point nobody rect it officially or unofficially nothing from sources and nothing for officially from the white house state department or department of justice those of the three and 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 like glenn but that this is going to happen any time soon it's rather unlikely and has not changed whatsoever dorrian i want to bring you in why is extraditing so important for the czechs 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 as danger he says he's not only blamed for masterminding the failed coup attempt from his network of followers but according to those followers are still posing a threat to democracy and every week now we're seeing more and more of the hundreds of his followers allegedly 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
to moccasin. stephon what is the position of the u.s. government on this issue. the u.s. government holds one position and that is that turks have to present proof of what they're saying and alleging in terms of the involvement of mr goodloe in the crew 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 white house 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 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 he 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 there's this 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 wherever washington was possibly involved or complicit in the coup which we did he 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 right stephanie months in washington for us. thank you chief. to budapest now where an estimated ten thousand people marched to protest two new lawless possed by the country's right wing government it was the
fourth demonstration this weekend the biggest anti-government protest angry has seen. it's the fourth protests like this in a week i hit the streets in budapest marching against the government i the protests for sparked by a controversial label or dubbed by demonstrators as the slave law it allows companies to demand four hundred hours of overtime a year and then delay the payment for up to three years. i. protest this also angered by the government's plan to create a new system of courts which critics fear would 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 on the event. 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 in us 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 that we invest in a semi that misha's it but your kids i this is one of the biggest attempts by opposition groups in hungary to oppose addict 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 we reported stefan boss is standing by. who exactly is taking part in these protests. well i think it's several groups these are definitely open parties about toll so trade unions and what is very interesting i think that many
people are participating as well in days demonstrations and i think that is something very improper minister viktor orban will have to reckon with because it's really also a different generation that 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 of 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 thinks the government is saying and they really try to play it down and they say these are foreign forces who are supporting these protesters 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 was quite a heavy handed at times to watch the protesters. the prime minister viktor orban was really except 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 tonight 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 these games momentum and also in all the areas of hungary or we have seen a similar protests and then of course it's something at the prime minister will have to pound ways 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 so whether this momentum will go on ok that's stefan vause reporting in the hungary and capital would have passed thank you. now to some of the other stories make a bishop 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 strasburg the paris prosecutor's office identified the victim only as a polish national police killed the gunman on thursday night after a two day manhunt. more than forty people are reported injured after an explosion at a restaurant in the japanese city of support for most of the injuries were minor though one person is said to be in a serious condition the cause of the blast is under investigation.
