unless europe puts them on trial for. jihadists on the march in syria these images from the fall of rock in twenty fourteen. islamic state has since been defeated here and across nearly the entire country many fighters are dead and more have been taken prisoner recently the u.s. backed kurdish led syrian democratic forces or s.d.f. besieged the city of backcross the last remaining iowa stronghold the kurds say hundreds of foreign fighters remain in kurdish prisons their wives and children live in camps in northern syria the s.d.f. have long complained that european states are refusing to take back their own citizens u.s. president donald trump has echoed those concerns and has even threatened to release the jihadists he tweeted the united states is asking britain france germany and other european allies to take back over eight hundred isis fighters that we captured in syria and put them on trial the caliphate is ready to fall the
10:03 am
alternative is not a good one and that we will be forced to release them europe hasn't yet come up with a clear response over the future of foreign fighters and their families. this i guess militant from germany is being held in a detention center in syria like others he'd like to return home but berlin hasn't said what it intends to do with him also unclear the fate of the fighters wives some of them say they don't regret joining the terror group but now wish to return i don't regret it because. it's changed me of the past. so. you know the right of my husband i wouldn't. have my kids i did have a good time to sit there. to prosecute or rehabilitate the question of how to deal with returning fighters and their families will remain
10:04 am
a major challenge for european countries. well the fun and more i'm joined by our political correspondent keep brady in the studio good morning kate kate let's start with the twitter from broadside from president trump does the president have a point here well he certainly is an unreasonable request that he's made to these three european countries and of course you know the u.s. syria democratic forces they've captured eight hundred fights a no the six hundred women and more than a thousand children now sir as if this isn't a completely reasonable request as coals as well for these i asked fighters from u.k. france and germany to be brought to justice and put on trial and of course they the security situation in the areas it is particular in syria right now. uncertainty over the security situation in those areas has increased and so there is also this air as well that if they are released then these fighters could return to go up and who knows where they might go and what they might be capable of carrying out ok on
10:05 am
the one hand we have the security issue eight hundred fighters and then we have six hundred. women and children as well large numbers there so there's a humanitarian aspect as well what are german and european officials going to do well sir the german foreign minister he said that it would be extremely difficult to every patriot these i ask fighters and of course their wives and children as well but. german law if someone has german citizenship then they are entitled to return to germany but the difficulty at the moment is that germany has seven diplomatic ties away with the syrian government and also doesn't recognize the syrian kurdish autonomous region so it is difficult at the moment or it would be if they were to repatriate the or try to repatriate these fighters it would be difficult to confirm the identities for example we're already seeing in iraq some
10:06 am
german i asked. fighters have been put on trial that but there's a very different circumstances so it would indeed be a difficult task but of course it is also they request to bring these i.a.'s feiss to justice and that's something that we can hear right now from the german green party foreign policy spokesperson. they fought on because. it's just that so last germany to take back their own citizens off truly it's not like they would be set free and they would be put on trial for their crimes but the way mr trump addressed this threatening to send terrorists our way that's language we usually hear from terrorists it's hostile ok we have the green foreign policy spokesperson there saying that there would be trials to be expect trials then of the returning jihad as in germany and in france and britain as well exactly so what we've heard so far from the state countries is that this would be a joint effort but again european governments have been wary of repatriating
10:07 am
citizens who have gone to fight for i asked in syria and iraq for example said the big question is whether they will be able to repatriate them in the first place in order to bring them to trial so of course that wouldn't be completely out the question but it is first ensuring that these people can be identified as identification can be confirmed and of course was seen as well already this being several western countries including the u.k. it was listed that by trump they've introduced laws that have enabled them to revoke citizenship for citizens that have been naturalized for example said than they've been able to remove themselves from those citizens so. it is will be dealt with on an individual level but we can also see a joint effort here as well from germany france and the u.k. some joint efforts along with some differences in how they approach that. thank you very much on those legal and practical issues on this thanks very much. also set to
