number. two the number you. tough talks begin in germany. party which election victory with its results in history looks for a coalition partners to govern with this so-called alliance appears the most likely to date also ahead. for germany party. with a breakthrough in. section six protests across the country.
human rights watch accuses the u.s. led coalition of killing scores of including thirty children. near the syrian city of. twenty four hour news live from the russian capital of this is r t international just after four o'clock this monday afternoon here welcome to the program we begin in germany this hour. digesting wall has been a bittersweet federal election for her and her c.d.u. party which the spike coming out on top saw a plunge in voter support the right wing a.f.p.
on the other hand has been celebrating an historic twenty four hours. ok let's break down some of the figures what we know at this stage chancellor merkel's christian democratic party registered its worst result since nineteen forty nine winning a projected total of two hundred forty six seats almost seventy fewer than that previously heard now the social democrats meanwhile they're on course for one hundred thirty three seats while ninety four will be taken by the newly elected alternative for germany party the first time it has entered the national parliament well merkel no need to team up with other parties to create a viable government in the bundestag one possible option will be the so-called jimmy a coalition that means an alliance with the pro-business free democratic party and also the greens merkel's former coalition partner martin schultz said his s.t.p.
party will go into opposition. from peter over from artie's berlin studio on the shift in politics this election. it's been clear the germany. chancellor however is a bit of both really when you put it like that there's certainly been people who change their vote to previously would have voted for. change there's also those that would have wanted more from the party to challenge those decisions made by the chancellor who have changed as well and they've they've lost around a million votes many of those going to be the alternative to any policy. when she was asked a question about the future because she's going to be chancellor we still don't know what kind of government she is going to be chancellor at the moment though when she was asked about alternative she was asked would you have any influence in
making the migration policy she had been. to say very very to the point. no i don't believe that i believe that the party should come and go into coalition find solutions search for them there are some differences of opinion between the union and the greens the c.d.c. is you and the f.t.p. and in part also the s.p.d. and of course we will find that then and the coalition agreements depending on how the end that will be reflected in there will not have an impact on the stock coalitions because it's a reality in politics isn't it do you have to be friends with people you don't like don't even agree with what you get completely without struggle of at times politically but it's a necessity well when you talk about that you almost simplify something that's so complicated this time around because it's not just anglo merkel doing a deal with one of the party she may well end up having to do a deal with essentially three parties the christian democratic union that angle
america represents has its sister party the christian social union so they're already in a coalition of sorts and there are differences between the two of them but they're talking about going into what's called a coalition it's the only option it's on the table at the moment if i'm going to lead a majority government now that you make a coalition it's called so because of the particles that are involved in it it makes it because of the jamaican flag. but it includes the free democrats and the greens now those two disagree on many issues so they may well say yes we're all fighting to get into power into joy and then with this in will we'll take our seats in the bundesliga will be only government when it comes to major issues particularly trade the greens on going to get on side with trade major trade deals that angela merkel wants to put in place when it comes to greece the free democrats aren't going to agree to any kind of of the bailout so that is where the fed nesting there. the ins and how the real nitty gritty of talks is going on at
the mo. to try and find a solution to that we heard from christie and linda just a few moments ago who is the leader of the free democrats no he hasn't ruled out that his party may be the opposition but he has said that these two make a coalition talks have to go and so the talks are under way i would expect it's going to be more a case of weeks as opposed to days that we're going to see before this and it may even run into months yet the necessity isn't it to sort of kind of get on with people you don't necessarily like for a lot of people the understand if they just think about perhaps christmas with the invoice but but someone that nobody wants to do business with the political level it seems party wise is built into germany probably what is it about them it's made them almost a political pariah all the way to parties and the local said she would not go into coalition with one with the left party the other one was alternative for germany now they've had big news as well on monday just hours after they entered the
bundestag for the first time great results for them their own thirteen percent their chairperson petrie announced that she wouldn't be taking a seat in the bundestag. we want to create real policy and that's a long consideration i decided not to be a member of the parliamentary group in the bundestag i would like to ask you for your understanding i will not answer any questions on this.
the. need to show people they can tie the knot didn't mean how did she. well some european leaders have welcomed alternative for germany success dutch far right peter builders posted a photo of himself with the f.t. chief for the election campaign has now left the party for ok petrie saying they will fight together for their countries the vote was also called a symbol of european awakening by french national front leader marine le pen. well the dismay of some with alternative for germany in the capital was also evident
across the country i. i. one of the biggest rally sold people gather on side b. e f. g.'s headquarters with protesters shouting and t. nationalist slogans as its leaders celebrated the election results following the demonstrations for us. i. was yeah with. a little god. in these moments he told me very much. be. patient with me emails well yeah i'm not happy with immigration policy but he. was decision for less and i'm going to be in right to see. things on the t.v. they haven't got about being provocative and one should not.
was raving i can show you some of the fact that they still here are some pretty weird ones actually they have been calling the people upset not only. one thing that brings to mind when you see these very angry people is that it might be quite a frightening experience for a newly elected now national politician from the democracy you just have to know that jim he was good for nothing you say i disagree yes forgotten a little bit in this democracy but there's always a lot of it was new to the moment has knowing that stuff we just paid to see the ball we still keep chasing this migration responding we'll see here oh yes because see this is the little advocacy you know you can always call evolution only had one on syria to be able to sending it to what we want to do read the bill roache a new but then you just will accept that there are other ways to give that up to
her who want to be on that. says one of the same thing i said immigration was lowndes no less which said the first lady no you then they lost you then they might see you and say you weigh. we were we got the thoughts of senior german diplomat frank l. bay who was part of the negotiations for germany's reunification. we have the situation that we have since two thousand and five. all together. twelve years of a grand coalition that is bad for democracy it kills parliamentarian it doesn't allow an opposition party to degenerate and i think we're just going to be fed up and we're looking for different alternatives the big parties made the mistake of demonizing of the and they gave the status that they had
not deserved so many to vote. to vote because they had thought that the only way to voice their protest. they didn't really address the problems of the nation let me talk for a moment of all the following if we have a number of crisis in this world at present we have a wave of possible immigrants. from africa wanting to come to europe we don't know how to stop them we have a crisis was russia we have a european crisis now you would think that politicians would jump in. if you look at the deal with the between mrs merkel mr ford's foreign political issue was when not addressed once we have poll lives of german.
staking that eighty one percent of the drone population feeds in. a volatile relationship between russia. and germany and they wish some sort of an improvement of these relations which are quintessential. for the security of europe if you ignore such anxieties that exist in the population. you make a mistake and you're right it's right to hold you be complacent. i want a lawyer i can judge it because i don't have the evidence but as long as i don't have the evidence i keep quiet and i think this is not an issue which we should take seriously and definitely your audiences should not be awarded. so what happens next well it is expected that forming a coalition with the remaining parties is going to be one tough job frankly merkel
hawkins' looks at what challenges she will face in her fourth term a chance. to many i'm going to merkel is the embodiment of stability in the face of crisis mixing diplomacy with a firm hand and sound decision making well for that skill this term has been marred by a series of setbacks firstly she decided to open the doors to asylum seekers at the height of the refugee crisis almost a million flooded into germany in twenty fifteen alone while some more welcoming others started to worry the country just wouldn't be able to cope. a year off to mark a lot to open door policy germany saw a rise in modern crimes one of the most shocking hundreds of women alleging they were sexually assaulted in cologne new year's celebrations by men of north africa
an hour of appearance. the events in cologne took their toll on merkel's popularity. the chancellor's controversial refugee policy is also blamed at least partly for something much more sinister and dangerous a rise in is the most terrorism. poorly vetted or later radicalized migrants cross the border germany saw multiple terror attacks take place markel faced the biggest leadership crisis. for the first. or. burgers and for america or believe this really is the labor market is going to hold money going to be one of the all. finally the
g twenty summit presented in. national p. all. but walsh advertised humbug as a gateway to the world protest groups had other ideas well come. on the authorities failed to provide the chaos. the city descended into roy torched cause and pitched street battles with the police much of the media held accountable for. even choosing that venue to start with she may still be queen of the polls but merkel may need a fourth just the right some of the mess she created in the.
politicians do something to. put themselves on the line to get accepted or rejected . so when you want to be president and she. want. to go on to be press this is what before three in the morning can't be good. i'm interested always in the waters of. the city. was telling you on the idea that dropping bombs brings peace to the chicken hawks forced me to fight the battle. to do socks for the tell you that gossip and tabloid but also the most important news. tell you on full enough
to buy their product. that we all. watch. to more world news where across this hour a new human rights watch report has accused the u.s. led coalition of killing at least eighty four civilians near the syrian city of raka including thirty children back in march right because the of reports from syria. in the unlikelihood more than eighty four people civilians were killed in two u.s.s. strikes even and near the syrian city of braca and c.t.
four people well that's just the bodies cool enough to identify their strikes alleged he targeted a school in markets and the bakery putting to human rights watch which carried out an investigation and published a forty two page report previously the us led coalition had said that for doing an internal review they found the claims of alleged civilian casualties tax credit bill it's well human rights watch visited these locations that spoke to the people when they looked at the evidence and they found that the u.s. led coalition given visited these locations they never spoke to the people they never looked at the evidence coalition forces have said that there is insufficient evidence to conclude that civilians were killed in the attack on the school but as far as we know they did not visit the school they did not talk to any witnesses if they had they would have found plenty of evidence that civilians were killed in this case the question they're asking is whether the u.s.
led coalition somehow missed the dozens and dozens of civilians present in these locations or whether they chose to ignore them whether they did care about the fields or said that there were isis fighters at these locations but so would dozens and dozens of other c.b.d. we can't rely on the americans or the american military to. also investigates there are atrocities on the ground in syria that would be ridiculous will be like you know. providing the evidence to be held against them later points. no i think we we have to accept organizations like human rights watch and all those will do the investigations will interview the witnesses later stages of that. it's really the beginning holes of the legal structure that's taking full now i mean i'm quite confident this is going to happen in the future i've seen it before the u.s. led coalition this month so what the pressure on another front here in the province
of datasource the russian ministry of defense has released a number of satellite images taken two weeks ago showing us special forces as well as that i have inside i see a stronghold the strange thing is that this new signs of fighting anyway and i says resist to be is that these areas would take it without a fight which is characteristic of isis suggesting perhaps how do these areas the russians also saying it's strange that the u.s. led coalition in that part of the forces have screening vehicles snow patrol sound to warn them in case of an isis counterattack which is very suspicious doesn't seem to be any activity that would suggest that they even fear an attack from isis which again would suggest that there is some kind of agreement has been made if these allegations are true and they can. there's not so far been
a detail out of those allegations that of course that is going to increase the long held suspicions of many far from being an implacable enemy of my sis in syria that the u.s. is actually prepared to cooperate with a terrorist group as and when it suits its interests the u.s. led coalition responded to our request for comment it's a the accusations made by the russian defense ministry are faults but that it cannot comment on current coalition operations. the president of turkey has the non stand independence referendum currently underway in the kurdish region of iraq president also said the turkish army at the iraqi border is ready to take what he called necessary steps troops there have already been conducting drills for almost a week the spite the obvious concerns voting is going ahead in iraqi kurdistan with pro independence bombers lining the streets the kurds are one of the largest ethnic
groups with their own state making up some forty million people across four countries iraq however safe the referendum result will be constitutional on the legal. iraq's oil rich north east might now become a separate country to stone with a robust energy sector and strong military forces its citizens holding an independence referendum. we have been asked to delay the referendum many times we are still under pressure. as for the referendum that is not in my hands or in the hands of the political parties anymore it is in your hands. for many years it's been an ongoing diplomatic tug of war between baghdad and the kurds which accuse the iraqi government of aggression and mistreatment the region first told a referendum in two thousand and fourteen amid political turmoil then came i still
propelled the country even further into chaos. because i have been key to repairing the terrorists and while the government sometimes chose to step back kurdish peshmerga just soldiers who are liberating village after village reclaiming one stretch of territory after another. it's all about seizing control of new lands in iraq that's what's helped the movement impetus and then bolted it to call for independence vote do the kurds have any supporters in. political fights well not really iraq obviously opposes the vote and its close neighbors iran and turkey has spoken out strongly against it as well an important issue about kurdistan is the atmosphere they want to destroy and create another israel in the region we should stand up against them. right now the kurdish regional government is taking steps towards the division of iraq as have the u.s.
and france the united states strongly opposes the iraqi kurdistan regional governments referendum on independence splendiferous temba twenty fifth germany meanwhile suggests the referendum be postponed until the defeat of eisel we can only warn against one sided steps on this issue the unity of iraq is on the line redrawing the lines of the state is not the right way and could exacerbate an already difficult unstable situation looks like the only foreign supporter here is israel while israel rejects terror in any form it supports the legitimate efforts of the kurdish people to attain a state of its all the kurds are very likely to vote yes nearly ninety nine percent did back in two thousand and five during an unofficial vote but will this change anything for them iraq says it won't recognize the results turkey and iran are threatening sanctions in case of independence and even the kurdish leadership admits there might be war. will face border problems in the near future and i
make this manufacture come sentenced to public wealth. when the ruling closest to protect themselves. with the famous merry go round lifts only the one percent. we can all middle of the room sick. trump morphs into a neo con well that didn't take long also the world disorder after the united nations general assembly speeches and why does morgan freeman hate russia so much. we're in today. seen over. these various
