british parliament has rejected leaving the e.u. with on a deal one day after turning down prime minister teresa mayes divorce agreement and today m.p.'s have gathered again to debate ahead of tonight's vote on whether to delay the exit of the european union and with only fifteen days until the bricks and tensions in the house of commons have been flaring explains. i think you'll be hard pressed to find anyone arguing that the reason made in control of the braggs it process anymore after she failed to push through tweak to deal through parliament a second time on tuesday it triggered a sequence of parliamentary vote the first of which willing and that's that they don't want no deal bragg's it to reason may says that she doesn't want a no deal breakers it either but at the end of that vote yesterday she came out and said that according to the law the u.k. might still get a new deal gregg's it was beleaguered before which. do you look. at the u.k.
12:03 pm
released without you do you. are. unless something else is agreed to the onus is now on every one of us in this house to find out what don't you see you can hear the frustration of the politicians that situation they just voted to exclude the option of a new deal bragg's it and yet the prime minister comes straight out off the back of that vote and says well it's still very much a possibility so following on from that vote last night politicians face another decision in parliament today they're debating on whether to extend article fifty in other words they're debating on whether to delay bragg's it all together so if parliament approved this delay it's expected that the reason may well have to go back to brussels once again and. ask for an extension to article fifty this
12:04 pm
speculation now over how long that extension might be to resume in the past has said it would have to be short and necessary purely technical whereas increasing e.u. officials coming out and arguing for a extension take a listen to what the council president had to say during my consultations ahead of the european council i will appeal to the e.u. twenty seven to be open to a long extension if the u.k. finds it necessary to rethink forward to resume may's deal with saying well look if you ask for a delay you don't know what brussels response is going to be you had that as sort of a fed up e.u. already setting preconditions potentially for any of the u.k.'s requests so no easy options here for anyone it's all series amaze clinging to this hope that all the chaos that we're seeing now in this prospect of no deal the prospect of

brussels wanting a long delay might just to force politicians have to finally approve withdrawal deal. breaks it killed. spanish investigators have reportedly linked the cia to last month's mysterious attack on the north korean embassy in madrid the incident occurred in late february a group of ten most people stormed opinions mission in spain they were streamed and gagged eight members of staff and reportedly put bags on their heads one woman succeeded and extend from a window on the second floor while the attackers got away with stolen computers and mobile phones it's been suggested that the former north korean ambassador to spain was the real target of the raid he served in the post for years but in two thousand and seventeen was expelled by madrid following north korean nuclear tests he also
12:06 pm
played a key role in organizing the recent summit between kim jong un and donald trump and one noise madrid based journalist martin roberts has more. spain's newspaper of record el paice suggested that the u.s. central intelligence agency may have been behind a recent attack on the north korean embassy here in madrid which you can see behind me el pikes say that police investigators and also investigators from the security services have managed to identify at least two of the ten presumed assailants and say that they have connections to the cia they are also but the cia have denied responsibility but they are that those denials were quote not very convincing now if these attacks are confirmed they're currently under investigation by the high court. but the responsibility of the cia is confirmed to not care to have
12:07 pm
devastating implications for diplomatic relationships between the two countries are not least because of international conventions covering the inviolability of diplomatically geishas. the spanish foreign minister has stated he will not comment on an ongoing investigation but we've asked the north korean embassy and spain's interior ministry for reaction we got opinion from former cia analyst john kiriakou . this is just not the way that the cia carries out an operation first of all the would have to have the permission of the director of the cia to do such as. a presidential appointee that's a spall and you know the cia would never do an operation that's so brazen and so public in the middle of the day like that where they're with their essentially kidnapping diplomats and holding them hostage and beating them and and stealing their commitment that's just not how it's done if you do something to disrupt that summit something so brazen as
12:08 pm
a criminal act like this that would be that would be essentially an act of treason really at the very least it would be an act of insubordination and and people would go to prison so no i can't imagine that they would try to so obviously disrupt the summit and you know this this was not something that would have disrupted the summit if the summit was going to be disrupted it would have been something far more direct against the north koreans in north korea not in summer likes being. you cannot discuss this further with former british diplomat and professor at italy's. marconi university it william mallison thank you for joining us on the program today now in terms of diplomatic relations how serious it is it when a secret service carries out such shocking operations on foreign soil. well unbelievably serious just as it was with the cia in chile for example nicaragua and
12:09 pm
other countries but there's no there's yet as yet no direct evidence of cia involvement and i'm not. at all or inspect occlusal but if you allow me to continue there are a lot of things that no one's mentioned so slee why did it takes three weeks for this to suddenly he hit the newspapers and why old place advice which recently had a big article by someone called david allen dating attacking a russia today for example or propaganda why that particular newspaper wife three weeks and second question why did the police when there was a special response teams not actually arrest the people in those two cars escaping from the embassy. that suggests that there are more fingers in this pine than we can be certain of also something has gone wrong with one hand not knowing what the other hand is doing did anybody in the spanish secret services know about this
12:10 pm
what is john bolton's relationship with the cia i'm not convinced it's very good could this be part of the us establishment acting without the authority of the cia all these are questions which arise immediately to mind mind or so clearly an operation like that would require a considerable degree of local help. as i think you pointed out just in your report just now. there are a lot of people have to be involved in this you can't just do such a military style operation so quickly also why they were so professional did this lady escape and managed to get to the police that i find slightly strange as well so somewhere someone along the line has not done their job properly or so no one has considered the fact that the u.s. certain parts of the u.s. establishment are. worried about complete peace on the korean peninsula is that
12:11 pm
would mean there'd be no war theoretically no more american troops to surround china and so i think the chinese interest is worth looking at here i'm not going to a finger at the chinese but i think china is a very important part of all this and finally as a final initial onset your first question let's not forget within a cia context however that the glad you operation you know keeping teams of people after nine hundred forty seven against the tech and edge of russian attacks etc is not dead there's a cold war warrior bolton knows that and it's quite possible that there are teams in place. all over europe and particularly eastern europe who are there ready to act when and if required so all those questions come up and let's not forget that a certain secret services do actually also spy on friends i happen to know not only
12:12 pm
from the book spycatcher that for example that the british and my six news the bulk of the greek embassy for example in the early sixty's because the cyprus crisis we also know that the british were spying on the french in fact i can say that occasionally the british used to even spy on americans as well as on themselves so this whole story has not come out yet why do we not know for example what the questions asked were when they beat up these people and called who's on them what questions were they are asking them it strikes me as highly unlikely that they were looking for anything to embarrass an ambassador who left over a year before his he wouldn't know him ambassador leaves incriminating material of any kind before leaving his post when he was it's asked to leave by the sponge so that in itself is funny so i think there's far more to this than meets the eye initially first question why did it take so long. to the moon which of course there
12:13 pm
are a lot of questions still remaining here very few answers and you mention the idea that spanish security could have actually been in the loop how likely do you think that is or do you think it's more likely that this was carried out behind madrid's back. it is not unlikely that the cia has certain contacts in the security services of certain countries so you cannot discount the possibility that there may be in one or two or who gives people who might floor to have a reason have been involved but again you we have to have proof we want facts. i think we should look at the police themselves why didn't they surround the embassy need to clean and stop those people getting out have the arrested anybody how come they know some of the people how come they know enough to to to to to say that two of them have cia contacts it's not yet sufficiently transparent is that court cases will come up now going to be transparent or is it going to be behind closed doors
12:14 pm
and run musically as a fire fighting operation to sort of calm things down a bit and say oh it was just an unfortunate event but something has to come out this also reminds me actually of another operation when when the very senior italian secret service agent was shot dead by american soldiers in iraq some years ago when he was. taking a journalist a free journalist to safety and he was shot dead and the italians never accept a b. u.s. version of that saying you know saying it was a mistake so remember that whether or not it's a direct cia operation it's turned out as a complete mess again i focus on weis three weeks people been rushing around like seventy headless chicken saying how so we now present this to the world. union angular balance here yes maybe they were maybe they weren't many questions still have to come out and i'm afraid all we can do for the time being to see what the
12:15 pm
spanish authorities come up with and whether what they tell us will be credible or not a lot of pressure will be put on them at the moment by people like the rather fanatic john bolton who's very much a cold warrior so i think we. a good investigative journalist would have to concentrate on the relationship between john bolton and the cia and anyone in the special status would who might. one of the reason even in the media even. be willing to to help with such. a sacrament embassy which is absolutely outrageous such a young president even in modern history will of course be watching and waiting to see if any of those questions are answered former british diplomat william mallinson thank you so much for joining us on the program not blessed by. the u.s. has changed its designation of the golan heights a disputed buffer zone between israel and syria from israeli occupied to israeli
12:16 pm
controlled in one nine hundred sixty seven israel captured most of the golan heights from syria a move that was not internationally recognized the state department made the change and its annual human rights report this appears to reflect a broader shift among the us establishment with top republican senator lindsey graham just a few days ago saying he wants to recognize the territory as israel's now and forever. i've got a simple message i will go back to the united states senate. working with senator cruz i will start an effort to recognize the goalline as part of the state of israel now and forever because to give this territory. would be a strategic nightmare for the state of israel and who would you give it to. this is just the latest u.s. move towards recognition in november washington voted for the first time against the u.n. resolution which calls for israel to withdraw from the golan heights the move was
12:17 pm
still passed though with one hundred fifty one votes in favor and just two against political analyst and middle east expert. feels the u.s. moves are designed to help create a favorable atmosphere for the israeli pm ahead of the upcoming elections. i don't understand this. administration of the american administration i think it is done to help benjamin netanyahu the prime minister in the election is trying to create a good. for. to assure the support of the president. i think the season are necessary step it is only. causing a necessary tension in the region there would never be peace with syria without these world withdrawing from the golan i. am now a little sports where eight teams have advanced to the quarterfinals of the

12:22 pm
provisional ira or the various loyalist organizations none of these victims volunteered to be victims and all of them should be held in some kind of equal esteem the principle has been breached that no security force members are to be investigated and i think bob is a moral victory for the families. the fight against islamic states last remaining pocket of resistance in syria is entering its final moments that's according to kurds they launched a massive military offensive a few days ago with the help of u.s. air cover.
12:23 pm
throughout the bloody conflict in the country millions of syrians have been forced to flee their homes with many ending up in refugee camps inside and outside syria but the conditions there are dire with many in desperate need of basic things like food water and medicine we discussed the situation on the ground with paula fitzgerald a representative of the international federation of red cross in syria. where the situation is really very serious and i think the coke can hold that it's probably the highest focus at the moment sees thousands of people arriving every day and they in. struck just not there to support what i do know is that alcohol can yesterday had seventy two thousand people and. people are continuing to riot in the numbers around sixty thousand so big numbers but most of this

12:27 pm
the era of competition between russia us and other countries it is a competition we didn't just get better. competition is only going to help us get a better program in the future so it's actually a pretty good way to beat the general i don't know. that there has never been a dull time in the history of the international space station program but i do feel like we are specially going to have a very interesting force in the history of this station very dynamic and we're going to be on board for that. i don't know about the competition thing but if we look at this topic a little light heartedly i'd say the shuttles deliver pretty cool things to the i assess the progress rockets usually take things that don't expire that quickly and with shuttles but we just make some calls and in a day's time we get grapes or pepper and it all looks pristine if you could take a picture with those goods but for now. the oldest largest and busiest
