5:04 pm
want to deal particularly as bentyl stressed because johnson doesn't even have a majority in parliament so even if you would have something to take take take back to london would get a majority nobody knows large amounts of frustration here on the european side so talks further forward what happens now. that is the 1000000 pound question boris johnson is going back to london and the funny thing is that after this one feels that what why did he even come what did he want to do in luxembourg he just wanted to show sort of marginal bit of goodwill sort of yes we did sit down and talk but then i didn't have anything to offer is this really is frozen in doubt his sincerity that he really does want to deal now rumor has it in london that he would not come up with any details for concrete solution for it
5:05 pm

help of russian asteroids. so let's get more they're joined now by d.w. correspondent julie han in istanbul and in moscow d.w. correspondent emily sherman welcome both let's start with you in istanbul yulia so what does president obama or want to achieve what are his priorities from the sleazy. well president edwin's main concern as you mentioned is that. it will cause a new refugee exodus $3.00 to $4000000.00 people are currently trip trapped inside it live province that surprised some italy the population of berlin just to give you an idea and in recent months the syrian army with russian air support has been pounding targets in including civilian targets like hospitals all of this despite a series of cease fires despite a key buffer zone deal reached between president edwin and president putin last
5:07 pm
year so the question really is how much political influence does turkey does add one still have when it comes to preventing this preventing from retaking it live provinces sooner or later little it seems right now. that hundreds of thousands of people have already moved towards the turkish border looking for safety these people are injured they're hungry and they're desperate so prison edwin's focuses on the humanitarian crisis here and his message is clear we already took in more than 3600000 refugees from syria we can take no more and this is one of his core messages i believe to president putin as well today. president appears to have the winning side. well i think president putin wants to come out of this with some kind of tangible
5:08 pm
political progress there's been a lot of talk in the past months and also in the run up to this meeting about the formation of a constitutional committee which is seen as a key step in the resolution of this conflict in a political solution for syria going forward there's been a lot of debate about who should be on that constitutional committee a committee that's supposed to write rewrite the syrian constitution and today after a bilateral meeting with their 2 on putin kind of talked about some successes there and in agreeing that list and that only the methods of work of this constitutional committee need to be worked out now in many ways russia's entering the war in 2015 really change the facts on the ground terribly so if russia can come out of this with the political success kind of presenting itself as a mediator on the world stage and in the middle east that would be a huge success for putin's image for russia's image union home minister

5:16 pm
militarily to 2 drone strikes on them by just saudi arabian oil facilities as the trump tweeted that the u.s. was locked and loaded who think rebels based in yemen have claimed responsibility for the attacks but washington blames iran. these oil tanks are exhibit a as the world tries to assess who was responsible for attacks on saudi facilities they show almost identical impact points which u.s. officials say indicate a high degree of sophistication in the attack whose the rebels and saudi arabia's neighbor yemen and initially seemed to take responsibility they've been fighting the saudis and their proxy forces for years in yemen civil war. but some analysts doubt whether the rebels could have launched drones or missiles that could hit the saudi tanks yemen is also to the south of the saudi refineries the impact site suggest an attack from the north or northwest the direction of iraq and the who are
5:17 pm
these strong backers iran secretary of state mike pompei o. said the u.s. would make sure quote iran is held accountable for its aggression and his boss president donald trump took to twitter to threaten those responsible he tweeted there is reason to believe that we know the culprit we are locked and loaded depending on verification but are waiting to hear from the kingdom. but iran deflected blame in going to have we reject these types of statements and projections. the islamic republic of iran has clearly declared that it supports the people of yemen and their rights but to accuse the islamic republic of iran with these attacks and defensive measures is in line with the united states maximum falshood policy they've adopted after their own failures has. oil prices spiked as traders start to take account of saudi arabia's seeming inability to defend its crucial oil infrastructure and governments including germany's have
5:18 pm
condemned the attack but it's unclear what the long term picture looks like everything depends on what the u.s. and other players do next to calm or aggravate the situation in one of the world's most volatile regions straits of washington that for more on this from the w correspondent to all of us salih welcome to all of a tell us more about the united states reasons for believing iran is behind this attack rather than a who think rebels who say they did it. well today the saudi led coalition provided information saying they believe it was the rainy and weapons used to rain you drones in fact flown from the direction off iran on this saudi arabian oil refinery and some satellite footage that the u.s. provided yesterday suggests the same that said the special envoy for yemen all of the united nations still has some dollars he said it's not 100 percent clear yet
5:19 pm
whether iran is behind these attacks technically these weapons could have delivered could have been delivered to who the rebels as well and that has to be clarified by the saudi led coalition therefore also agrees that they will continue to investigate what they're trying to focus on right now is to make clear from we are exactly these drones were launched. 3 in addition to that the president already yesterday said the u.s. is locked and loaded but of course it's not clear yet whether he means military retaliation or if it's just part of his maximum pressure rhetoric because there's so much poison in june the present threat military action against iran when the revolution we go to shut down a u.s. drone and then he holds to be a talk so should we tell you he's threats more seriously this john. well there's a very unpredictable a president as we know and he's always up for surprises so it's completely
5:20 pm
difficult and unclear how he will move on from this let's not forget what do you really want to achieve and what lots of the core of this conflict between the united states and iran is the nuclear deal that president trump wants to renegotiate he wants to force iran back to the negotiating table to reach a deal that he believes would prevent from you run from working on nuclear weapons now as president rouhani ruled that out under these circumstances and of course it would be even more unlikely if there would be any military intervention so what we're seeing here is president trump raising the stakes of course trying to negotiate with his maximum pressure strategy but he has not been very successful with this so far so how does locked and loaded this into u.s. middle east policy after john bolton's dismissal goes national security adviser. were clearly lacking
5:21 pm
a strategy here we've just witnessed national security adviser john bolton as you mentioned who had a very hawkish position on iran who was an avid supporter of military intervention in retaliation strikes we just witnessed him being let go so that was actually a rather conciliatory message towards iran on the one hand side we do now hear retaliation threat so it's a big back and forth between diplomacy and threats and that causes a lot of confusion even with within president trump's own ranks but let's not forget he does not want to get the country into a war that was one of his core election promises of 2016 all of us dollars in washington thank you. the company behind the heart of the u.s. opioid crisis has filed for bankruptcy purge you fall which makes oxycontin to
