remained as a productive of the member states i mean it's not normal why because there are the and external relationships of the community and the foreign policies of the individual member states and the poor high representative have to be has to be present both the so this is not a success these are a difficult compromise immigration is one of these areas where from outside people tend to see your dog as a sawed to of unique single land this makes the saying we're very difficult with countries like italy and greece there are the gates as we say of huge up but are forced to behave as if the immigrants are lending you both thing reason they need to be. where for eternity and greece only so this is
4:01 pm
the a c. miter that still remains well mr martin we have to take a very short break but we'll be back in just a few moments say. her . as rather stand in her house and. before long one of. the diner on the right or rather there across the board there appears there are. only a lot of lateral markets and. carol. i don't lose a child with
4:02 pm
a truffle not that it will never get done. in the modern world and then i want to punish all of those are aware that the. numbers are on the hay for no one else doing. good for its whole fool first choice for gun the i knew for years and hey i think the time in syria has said. who she is over from my last farthing to me after a couple fronts around the mr hate that for jim and then more oil for hope that our freddie macor. the money. global warming are selling you on the idea that dropping bombs brings police to the chicken hawks forcing you to fight the battle for food stall. the new socks for the tell you that every gossip and probably myself and most importantly the other off advertising tell me on the box of advertising telling me you are not cool enough
4:03 pm
and lets you buy your product. these are the hawks for me and on the board will watch. welcome back to worlds apart with julian m. other former prime minister of italy mr maher just before the break we were talking about the law being influenced by a political considerations internationally but obviously it also happens in the domestic landscape we have a major issue with independent judiciary here in russia but it also seems to be
4:04 pm
increasingly an issue in other european countries like for example poland or ukraine and those countries rhetorical it least have long embraced the western way is that really an issue of values why do you think it's so difficult to insulate politics and the judiciary. in the domestic context as it is a constitutional law scholar i find it very much understandable that after years of communism the notion of the concentration of power prevails upon the notion of division of power words because the communist regime was based it formally but i mean they had him over the and take it out of the economy. you see ours when i was discussing with our governors the oprah ration that was necessary for these new states to and
4:05 pm
into the european union building a market of a communist it gonna be building liberal democrat digs. of communities states the harder years difficulty was in the circle but not in the fruits too on. precisely because of these reason creating an independent. judiciary i could use the this is sometimes difficult old in with renewed or now there are people commission is now a century in poland for misbehaving and poland essentially response by saying that it's not your business and i think that touches on the subject you often talk about reaches this a permissive national or versus the primacy of regulations i suspect that your heart will prevent the european commission but do you see any merit in the polish
4:06 pm
argument that they should be allowed some space of making their own decisions and some space to develop democracy the way they seem necessary well there are limits of course. in. the huge construction like the european union should be not eliminated but absorbed that somebody has returned having said so there are limits so all of us all of ours ever except that we respect the rule of law we concede the independence of the judiciary part of the rule of law something that from the polish or you point can be argued rupp's i'm not sure. they could say but appointing judges it is not
4:07 pm
necessarily. threatening their independence because if you argue that appointing judges excludes the independence of the judiciary they use is out of the rule of law because we know that federal judges are appointed by by the president so there is. a margin of discussion but within limits really because what has happened in poland in relation to the coast it. is let me say so beyond the credibility of the financial times had an article the other day saying that poland was where the soviet empire began to crumble and that it may well be the place where the future of the e.u. will be decided do you agree with that no why not no to thaw not at all no because
4:08 pm
poland is an important european country it's one of the big ones after brawler and. whatever happens in poland affects the union and this is something i am convinced but not that poland will lead to do you know we're it's a disruption this is something i don't think there is something that is to do with kids seeing ski give the time to go back to his country things might change and all of this is sort of. need to of the present might change that you know one parallel i would draw at the soviet union first human to parallels i think one is this intention by the soviet union to. centrally mandate policies rather than lead the regions to develop at their own
4:09 pm
pace and the second one would be the very linear view of history in progress that you only go from certain point to the next point without allowing a country or society to make its own mistakes isn't it helpful ultimately for the democratic process for poland for hungry for russia for ukraine for anyone else to make its own mistakes and to strengthen that democratic. there is a limit there is a little a limit to the because. something that is really important for us is not to be only a common market but as we are to be a community of values you money to meet your own mistakes eview. and proven in plea contradict the common values you create a problem absolutely you create a problem also. on the outside friends because we needed
4:10 pm
to be perceived as the community of the you that is something that we are very affectionate to the fact that no member of the european union can accept the death penalty and no country adopt still adopting the penalty can be accepted as a member of the union imagine that we accept a country to make its own mistake adopting the death penalty we don't react or not i could tell you that italy has had its own a very long history you have pages in your history that i'm sure you are very proud of fascism for example and yet you manage to build your society on it when you say that all countries have to comply with certain valley. don't you deny them an opportunity to arrive at the appreciation of the values by themselves rather than
4:11 pm
being mandated by some central if they are not mandated to don't adopt this view of brussel as if it were is soviet power world that free moscow prides to dominate why territory and communities it is not so the only power in the commission now as our soft power is not too. aggressive well certainly you know that less than ten actually there is a taurus and as you rightly really has been perceived the don't believe the commission with its soft power its power its a but solved open up a dialogue among the member states all of them discussing with the charter the respect of the rule of law that exists in each of their. because you will find that
4:12 pm
perhaps the violations by poland are made crowe others might be mine but look at the of migrants how they are treated in each country you will realise that the rule of law is a splendid do but the compliance with it is not splendid also in other countries this is to be done the dialogue but it's a dialogue it's not solve yet our work on the poor poland well good to know how can i ask you very quickly about another country that is involved in negotiations with the. united kingdom i know that you were greatly disappointed by the result of the backset vote even though you yourself wrote that article thirty did you ever think that it would have been invoked. no my purpose in proposing and shaping the three paragraphs of that
4:13 pm
was if they have it is they won't use it because frequently they hear. you are doing so many things difficult to accept for the ass and it's impossible to work out it's impossible to work out we are prisoners of this bureaucracy or brussels accent so no the door is there and you can open it so feel more relaxed inside the union but the fact of the matter is that those who vote they took ages gave a majority to bracks it know it has to be seen were. under the law of the actual conditions that are not defined yet of the exit they will really be ready to do it
4:14 pm
i can see the this issue open but it's too early to say can i ask you specifically about that because i heard you express that hope the british reckon fettering their decision before and i wonder if it's fair to continental europe to you. just sit there and wait for the u.k. to decide for another child whether it was this is not europe is doing this is what time i think but europe is negotiating with a very rigid the time table they have concluded that the first stage of negotiations which is the stage devoted to how much it costs to you to lead and they have found an agreement which is allow them to open up the second stage of negotiations which relates not to the past. the cost but to the future these will be the real negotiations and the time is going to lead me to until next
4:15 pm
year the braxton vote was ultimately a result of very self-serving political decision you can argue that what we see now transpire in poland is also a result of self-serving politics do you think the e.u. is treating poland and the u.k. . by the same standard in this case because it seems to me. later on paul and then on the difficult for me. to to the two situation. the same kind. the benchmark because poland is a member of the union that has no intention to deceive even mr tasks that could be an up or a possibility if poland is pressed too hard. there is always a possibility but at the moment poland is
4:16 pm
a member of the. common use bridge the u.k. which is not by your later any come along as this press the view to leave. and therefore we are negotiating with them it is to be clear if they don't want migrants easily and being into the. they have to set a rigid border between north and in ireland and the republic if they don't want to redo the border between the two i relent lampedusa would be in dublin. and this is the untractable problem that they have created to themselves is not my form polish your letter we have to leave it there really appreciate your time and tell us. please keep the conversation going on our social media pages and i hope to see you again same place same time here and also
4:17 pm
part of. our. young children have worked in bolivia for generations almost three quarters of a million doing so today. this culture led to the development of the livia's new liberal and highly controversial children's code in two thousand and fourteen which gave children as young as ten the right to work under certain circumstances but
4:18 pm
there's a new thing this. is all new for. eat well with that's the end of. the things years. but there are hundreds of thousands of children in bolivia operating completely outside the local. mining work is strictly forbidden by the children but it's never enforced and that means the school boy minus here continue risking their lives for the money they need to survive.
4:19 pm
what politicians do something that. they put themselves on the on the big get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president or injury. or somehow want to preserve. it's a right to be for us this is what the forecast for in the morning can't be good that i'm interested always in the waters about how the. question.
4:20 pm
op intends to air bombardment turkey now stands a ground incursion into kurdish held syrian territory the assault follows a now retracted announcement by the us that it would set up a kurdish border force something that and the aged and. olympic peace north and south korea reach a breakthrough deal to march and compete under one flag at the upcoming winter gate and but that's as western leaders decide it's time to up the ante gates yeah. the first. part of that pressure. coming off diplomatic ties with north korea. and r.t. went underground after reports that drug related crimes are running out of control on the paris metro the city's transport union says some train drivers are now
4:21 pm
refusing to stop at certain stations. are you watching r.t. international is the weekly here thank you for joining us turkish tanks are rolling into syria supported by power and ground troops with anchors military operation against kurds in the region now in full swing. well these are the latest pictures from the turkey syria border we can see turkish tanks firing shells at kurdish position positions if you're trying to break down the situation on the border for us. to get a clearer picture of what's going on between the turks and the kurds along syria's
4:22 pm
northern border we should look at the map this is where the kurds are the two yellow areas the one on the left is the african region that's the new war zone the turkish army entered it from the north west plus they used airstrikes the green area is where the turkish backed syrian rebels are these are the militias that ankara is counting on on the ground there moving in on afrin from the east turkey's claws are being drawn together turkey has officially made it clear they are determined to create a thirty kilometer buffer zone right here along the border once the actual armed operation is done and dusted there's little doubt that the turks have enough military capabilities for that so the buffer zone will mean effectively that a part of syria is under turkish control at the moment it seems ankara isn't going to stop there they want the operation to extend further east as well as president
4:23 pm
aired on announced towards mon be a city also controlled by the kurds it's and this other kurdish enclave when it comes to the kurdish forces they say they've been returning fire the kurds also claim they managed to repel the offensive speaking of casualties for now the kurds say there have already been quite a few mostly civilians it's all lies says ankara they say they've only killed fighters or terrorists as turkey puts it the turkish military is trying to reassure everyone it will take precautions to minimize civilian casualties but in the media reports we also saw more threats from the turkish government like the prime minister saying anyone who helps the kurds with weapons will automatically become a target for an korea's guns. the incursion follows and crazed outrage over america's recent claim now retracted that it would create
4:24 pm
a force to patrol the turkey syria border this was to consist of syrian democratic forces which are made up largely of kurdish militia the coalition is working jointly with the syrian democratic forces to establish and train the new syrian border security force currently there are approximately two hundred thirty individuals training in the b s f inaugural class with the goal of a final force size of approximately thirty thousand. soon after the announcement u.s. secretary of state rex tillerson backtracked he clarified that the whole situation had been misdescribed and ruled out the creation of a border force but hey our picture is off kurdish forces who have allegedly already graduated from a us led training course and to stop wishing the border security force that washington now claims won't exist for you to take consists of five hundred men and it will force at least a second to have graduated we spoke with also meant for written
4:25 pm
a blog me with for my turkish ambassador to the us he believes the situation has acted as a trigger attack it was then that. i don't think the us really interfere but the us is responsible is the reason lars turkey felt compelled to intervene and to start this operation in the first place because. the u.s. even though they backtracked. to initial announcement and i decide they want to establish an army of course parallel force in most in all countries all to world there is only one to lug one army so the u.s. says i'm going to create another force to patrol and control and secure syria's border with turkey but the dispy in turkey is not an enemy or syria turkey is not
4:26 pm
an enemy of the us turkey is a member of nato so it didn't break sense and i think turkey was a quite right in person being disturbed as a direct threat to its national security. meanwhile the turkish president has been speaking out about the ongoing military operation he's accusing his allies of providing military support too because with washington first and foremost in his line of fire this policy or explains the turkish president added one has come out with guns blazing and some pretty harsh rhetoric for the trump administration a lot of. america do not encroach on our borders do not provoke us we will run out of patience i told brock obama the same unfortunately i don't get any response. those who see the backing of the u.s. will not stand the turkish nation it is our national struggle. is essentially turning on and has allies he's accused the west of providing weapons and ammunition
4:27 pm
to the kurdish militia he says that aside from five thousand trucks weapons and ammunition from some two thousand planes has been provided the turkish president also saying to quote that his allies are dishonest when they do not admit to the fact that they have been supplying weapons to terrorists and here of course he's referencing the kurdish militia known as the y p g france is calling for an urgent united nations security council meeting while at the same time germany has expressed that it is extremely concerned with these developments particularly saying that the culture lated risks that could result from this confrontation between turkey and the could is something that might mount at the same time we are hearing from the turkish foreign minister who says that anyone who does not support took his actions in the african region essentially is siding with the terrorists and will be dealt with accordingly so what we see is some pretty harsh rhetoric
4:28 pm
coming from ankara particularly towards its allies essentially saying that it will not so that they get involved in warning them that they could potentially take further action. so his military action against the kurds in syria triggered protests across europe people took to the streets in a number of capitals to denounce the incursion and to demand the d f d lation of the crisis we're going to be following all of the developments on the turkish syrian border throughout the evening so do stay with us for that. at least eighteen people have been killed in afghanistan after an overnight siege is a major hotel in the capital kabul they tell it is include a high ranking afghan diplomat and fourteen foreign nationals security officials
4:29 pm
believe up to four attackers were involved in this hallowed ban which claims it was behind the assault says it sent five gunmen. i think unfortunately the afghan security forces are just not. up to the standards or there's too much pressure on them and there's not much coordination between nato forces and the afghan police there are multiple threats and the taliban there's al
4:30 pm
qaida there's ice is there's also has this the army which is also in the government so there are a number of opponents and i think that this simply isn't the right intelligence to counter these kind of attacks because they're happening on the regular basis one day it's a civilian target one it's a military target one meets a commercial road or a hotel like today how to counter terrorism in afghanistan you need a regional approach and the regional approach means working with iran working with pakistan and working with russia in the central asian states at the moment the u.s. is not really doing that they have their own strategy and it's not doesn't fit in with britain strategy. this week particularly as they agreed to march together under a single flag during the upcoming winter olympics but no one else and twenty two athletes to complete to compete in three sports of the young chinese games the international olympic committee president thomas back praised the agreement calling it a milestone in a long journey.
