easily challenging fortunately he. has and i did two top priorities for us as organization and on these of course we are a we are trained to. together with a witness what on red cross. i do moment these days the big challenge that the human he. has been. is that he's dividing the debate at which he shouldn't be. the international community can do more in not giving to the you money. you money. to support the most vulnerable communities here in minutes right now or else where . the peaceful dialogue can prevail we hope that. the option no one beyond the next day and they would find the way to sort out from

sophie shevardnadze tribes plan for u.s. troops to remain in iraq has concerned baghdad and anger tehran. how will balance out ever and so interests here without forgetting its own i ask former iraqi prime minister. as a rock the rubble after the bloody war with isis the countries american and iranian allies are locked in a confrontation with each other each pressuring baghdad to join the side of the internally divided and unstable or wrong before to join another fight libya able to preserve the hard won internal peace with the quarrel between washington and to run the country apart. hi there are led by the former iraqi prime minister welcome to the show it's great to have you with us on our program today so mr i love it donald
