i. i. the fate of briggs it becomes a little more cloudy as british lawmakers vote for a three month delay so it's back to brussels for treason may seek the permission. roaring into the skies a new crew heads to the international space station after blasting off from the baikonur cosmodrome hours ago. the u.s. state department changes its description of the disputed golan heights from israeli
occupied to israeli controlled with experts calling it a move to boost the israeli p.m.'s ratings ahead of elections next month. and the cia is behind a mysterious attack on the north korean embassy in spain that's according to local media. are you with us this hour this is our team to nationalise midnight here in moscow. and we will start with the latest from london where british and piece of voted to delay the u.k.'s departure from the e.u. it means that the british prime minister will have to return to brussels and renegotiate the current march twenty ninth deadline date i spoke to artie's on the situation and peter all over to get reaction from both sides of the channel. let's go first to london said that. payson as it comes could really agree with much they
have agreed on something finally but not really much tangible it's just a delay as i understand it. well. you're absolutely correct with your interpretation of these events i mean they have said no to a bunch of different things throughout this very very hectic week in westminster and they have indeed finally agreed on something which is they're not ready to handle bracks it which has become extremely clear in these last couple of days if it wasn't clear before with the original bracks a deadline of march twenty ninth looming just fifteen days from this evening it was clear that there is no consensus on what's going to happen it was a vote after vote rejected by m.p.'s in terms of how to move forward so the way things stand now is they have indeed supported the idea of pushing back article fifty delaying brax it despite if you remember throughout this whole very gruesome
process british prime minister theresa may has been saying over and over and over again she wants to stay with a deadline we're leaving on march twenty ninth eccentrics cetera that apparently for now is not happening because of this vote yes for one hundred twelve votes no two hundred two a majority of two hundred ten so it's a very clear majority that. that many m.p.'s want more time to figure out what's going on the problem there is now to recently has to go back to brussels that has there they have told her many times that we have given you the best deal possible let's work with that that deal was rejected so what she's going to be able to it's seems likely that she's going to be able to secure an extension however what that extension is going to bring now is the big question because so many other options have been rejected and taken off the table just this week alone m.p.'s have said.
no to her deal which was the best one possible according to may and her colleagues at within the european union or in brussels and they have also rejected the idea of leaving without a deal so where all of this is heading now who knows you know it's been said difficult difficult process it's really i guess at this point going to be up to what it is that they're going to pull out of their sleeves to try to bring this forward something. vacillates from. european reaction i was going to be to all of a who's in berlin. the irony here is thick i believe the u.k. says europe we don't want you and now they'll have to go back all of a twist like with begging bowl and say you to e.u. officials please can we have more time how do you think you're going to react to this. well i can tell you exactly how the european commission have just reacted to this they put out a statement through a spokesperson in the last few moments saying they have been watching the vote in
london with great attention and they've pointed out that if the u.k. wants an extension of article fifty it has to be approved by all twenty seven remaining e.u. members now this statement says the. they're going to have to come up with a good reason for extension now there's a little bit of good cop bad cop going on here at the moment between the european commission and the european council in their various presidents the european commission president john called you previously said it doesn't want to see a long extension certainly doesn't want to see the u.k. have to take part in any kind of a you parliamentary elections which basically means he wants to see that extension lasting no longer than the end of may we have heard both from the european council president he said he would be an ally to the united kingdom in trying to get the states trying to get those. t.
signed with an extension however he said if he's to do that he's going to need a good reason to sell it to the twenty seven. 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 its bragg's its strategy and build consensus around it well if we look at statements from other e.u. leaders we've heard from a manual on the french president saying that he would essentially support a extension of article fifty however he was very clear to say that this wouldn't be a time for any negotiations this would be essentially a time for the u.k. to decide if it wants the deal that the e.u. has already agreed with to resume a that deal of course it's already been voted down twice and they will go to parliament again for a third time next week or no deal the only other option is of course this the u.k. council's article fifty entirely all but killing brags that that's the one thing
they can do unilaterally now we've heard from the negotiating team from the e.u. side as well the deputy chief negotiator sabine whalen said she'd spoken to the dutch prime minister mark rooter who described the vote on wednesday evening to take no deal off the table a bit like the titanic voting to have the iceberg move out of its way it's not doesn't really mean anything apart from words we've also heard from the chief negotiator michel barnier he was speaking in bucharest and he said as it stood will certainly earlier on on thursday so wasn't sure what the goal of breaks it was or what it what it intends to achieve. it's a lose lose situation. nobody can. straighten me to prove to me he added value. not even mr bush for the
long and short of it is that now if there's an extension to break that it's going to depend on the leaders of the e.u. twenty seven if it happens or not if not britain still out on the twenty ninth of this month. david blunt a lecturer of international politics at the university of london says that we leadership in london is giving the your opinion in the upper hand. i think the e.u. isn't so much stubborn as absolutely perplexed by the messages that have been coming out of london over the past two years the prime minister has not exactly been a collegial member of the club either in westminster or with their colleagues in brussels i think it's more confusion than strategy on the european side it right now the ball is in the europeans court they're going to have to decide whether they will actually agree that britain deserves an extension to leaving the european union prime minister is holding on by her fingernails at this point she has only barely managed to hold control over the brics a process tonight by two votes she is barely controlling her own party she's barely
able to hold cabinet together last night the government whipped to support its motion and members of the cabinet defied it and are keeping their jobs today she's not in control anymore. two explosions have been heard in the israeli city of tel aviv after air raid warning sirens were triggered local media report two rockets were fired from the gaza strip which led to the activation of defense systems in tel aviv the israeli military reportedly intercepted one miss our while another fell into an open area no casualties at this time been reported the last time rockets were fired at the television was back in two thousand and fourteen. ok let's bring in a guest now i can speak to naftali bennett who is israel's education minister and a member of israel's security cabinet appreciate you taking the time to come and talk about this now the situation between israel and palestine and then the
problems in the gaza strip obviously great tension is this an escalation in your opinion. it is a must has been shooting rockets on the southern part of his role for roughly a year now. and now they've shot two rockets. area. it's time to defeat it's time to demilitarize the gaza strip we are fine with gaza thriving on the civilian basis but we cannot accept the. rocket fire on our homes here in tel aviv and down in the negev what would you anticipate will be these really responsive mediately. well i'm not going to share the precise response but the bottom line is that we left the gaza strip about thirteen years ago now and. the moment we left they've been shooting rockets
at us so we will not give up any more land it just doesn't make sense when we had land over to the arabs they turned it into a radical islamic terrorist state and now it's time to fight back to the state and we will. israel has been accused many times of using excessive force while dealing with protesters in that area does it surprise you that palestinians are also using force themselves. that's nonsense where do you live by the way personally do you live in moscow i do will you say the sort of nonsense only after the day to find. you when you want to. go how do you and how would you counsel would be put in a military office ulysses sure you're already on my question illions i'm just
asking you that the u.n. says that. palestinian civilians were shot by israeli forces so are you surprised that there is an aggressive. response coming from palestinians no you're invading my question what would let amir put in do if islamic rockets were shot of moscow you would. totally obliterate those enemies and that's what israel needs to do we have the right of self-defense and they do not accept any sort of preach from folks on the other side of the world when we're being shot rockets from a piece of territory that we handed over to the arabs what i can say is that we won't do that again at least no one's trying to preach i mean i think everybody understands no matter what the grasp of the situation in the middle east is that the violence the cycle of violence continues and that begets more aggression.
how he's you know the what you're suggesting going to improve the situation. well what you're sort of describing is a two sided. situation where they're aggressive and we're aggressive but that's not the case we left gaza we want peace the moment they stop shooting missiles and my children's. home and kindergarten is the moment there will be peace we have no territorial demand over gaza and they just need to stop it if they stop it there will be peace that's very simple. talk of the night about the b.d.s. that's what we call divestment sanctions movement and isolating israel b.d.s. activists they say the norm violent movements how else can people express disagreement with the policies of israel other than boycotting if they feel they feel that other approaches a failed. you know anyone can do whatever you want this is
a. movement of. them i don't see any towards any other country in the world and it's a unique issue to israel which is the only democracy in the middle east the only democracy yet the b.d.s. movement is focused on israel but that's you know we are a self-sustained country with. almost the size of the high tech in the in the new york and we're doing fine if they want to give up g.p.s. systems if they want to give up our dairy technology if they want to give up our medical students in their hearts and that's fine i don't see that the palestinians of any major products that we can do away with. everybody striving for an improved situation more peace less aggression more harmony is it
possible. we don't know but arab israelis are expressing their anger of the prime minister netanyahu called ments on the recent nation state law that israel's fiji citizens only some even call for boycotting the upcoming election was that a mistake from the prime minister minister did it just deepen the rift in israeli society. no that's not what the prime minister just does russia is the nation state of the russians and britain is the nation state of the brits israel is the nation state of the jews it does not mean that non jews don't enjoy full equal rights they do they vote for the knesset their supreme court justices were arab and they enjoy full equal rights in israel in the prime minister said just that however israel remains the nation state of the jewish people and we're very proud of that. saying it's technically accurate could one say it was
insensitive this time. it's not sensitive at all quite the contrary you know the jews only have one little state the size of jersey the arabs have about twenty two states there's about one billion muslims in the region we don't have any anywhere else to go this is our home and we're proud of it we're proud that we're back home so there's nothing sensitive about thought that would be more sensitive than saying that russia is the nation state of the russian people. what's the state of the peace process now. would you say these really government still supports a two state solution. well there's internal debate. vehemently oppose forming another arab state within the land of israel we already have a failed one called gaza turning israel into. you know an area. for
iraq it's not about the found another one these guys just cannot run and manage themselves these folks certainly have a goal of annihilating israel and as long as it's up to me. we will not form another arab state west of the jordan river would it be important to make sure that jewish settlements don't expand any further would that send a positive message. no not at all i think every state has full rights for its citizens to build new communities new talents as long as it's up to me i would build for jews anywhere in israel. because it's our whole and i don't think that. in france there is any limitation on the people to build their homes on jews or not jews in israel there are limitations
on jews where they cannot build and that's unacceptable so i think as long as it's up to me i would build much more and many more jewish communities within our land. my guest this hour is not dalai bennett israel's education minister and a member of your security cabinet enough to thank you very much for your time. right as we speak a new crew setting for their new home on board the international space station two hours ago this slews rocket rolled to life blasting off from the baikonur cosmodrome auntie's me if i'm not in a witness the action. again here in the morning to you can see them fifty nine six petition to the international space station starts oh my goodness look at this line . it's.
russia's space it's just from here to the rocket in this guy's painted national border russia aleksey of chanaan and two nasa astronauts dk and christina koch we can hear people who have gathered here from all around the globe to witness the launch of loading because that was picked tackler it. is a little bit clouded right now here is so but i can still see the rocket in this cause and just eight and a half minutes it is expected to reach the orbit and then it's going to take another six every round six and a half hours to dog with the international space station alexander in
a neat hagen mondo's and worried because you remember their previous mission in october didn't go well it was aborted made flight due to technical problems and just minutes off to the left all for a sneak and aleksei had to return to earth in an emergency capsule maybe you remember these dramatic pictures from the inside of this emergency capsule showing saying neat shaking a really dramatic sad pictures to it actually was a miracle that they had returned to earth on the hard. this is where they were you think happy to pipe down from five hundred to one of those from the one fed by the river this way to would mean they've gone on populated lending very talented and keen and need paid to lend it on farms on group
who have given that the prime with a fifty kilometer if he believed to be sent many times over the course of gravity while on the ground no one was hurt either you want to prepare single tap or at obama point a lot of people within a few areas never mind the power forest really isn't cool cooling to the earth to pay for april showers bring may flowers here already have i found that as well as around me who would praise for the emergency system. i had a chance to talk to both the nikkei and alexei of chaining and they have assured me that they are full of confidence ahead of flight and looking forward to finally reach the international space station well the space launch is always a very spectacular thing to watch as you can imagine especially during nighttime
like today so we are kind of a lockie but we are not the only one to witness the launch from the ground people from all around the globe come here to baikonur to see with their own eyes this is a spectacular as seen and actually to wave spacemen while they are seeking already inside the spacecraft funny thing is that spacecraft has no we actually those who are on board cannot see those who are on the ground but still it is very emotional moment for everybody involved earlier i've had a chance to talk to some of these enthusiastic tourists the question. you can see such an event on there once in your lifetime one cannot miss it it's a great event it's very interesting and it's a huge step into space for all of the country we came last year in october to see the space launch it is now is a wonderful experience they gather it didn't get all the way up into space it was an aborted mission so we just got their mind it came back again we were five years
old when they landed on the moon so it's been a long time we were young but it was exciting when we're blessed because we lived near where neil armstrong the first man to step on them and he's from really close to where we live it's a special it's a one time experience and i'm glad all these people get to come here and this is. a dream of mine since i was five years old to watch a rocket go off and to come here which is the birthplace of russian space the russian space program for me is some emotional there is no longstanding sort of ratio but it is just a long long standing dream i watched every launch at home i watch on the internet and i even arrange my working life around the launches so i can watch them so we heard about this last year and we were looking forward to it and we saw the launch problems last year and we're getting more and more excited. spanish investigators
have reported leading the cia to last month's mysterious attack on a north korean embassy in madrid spanish media say the police of managed to identify at least two of the possible attackers back in february group of ten must people stormed pearl young's mission in spain they restrained and gagged eight members of staff reportedly putting bugs on their heads or woman succeeded to escape from a window on the second floor the attackers they made off with stolen computers and mobile phones also been suggested the raid was to get information on. a former north korean ambassador to spain who served in the post for years but in twenty seventeen was expelled by the. following north korean nuclear test he also played a key role in organizing the recent summit between kim jong un and donald trump in hanoi the spanish interior ministry has stated it will not comment on any ongoing investigation so 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 they would have to
have the permission of the director of the cia to do such as. a presidential appointee that's gina 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 there with their essentially kidnapping diplomats and holding them hostage and beating them in and stealing their equipment that's just not how it's done if you do something to disrupt that summit something so brazen as 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 somewhere like spain. we discuss a story from a british diplomat william mallinson of a whether the incident is serious in terms of diplomacy. unbelievably serious just as it was with the cia in chile for example nicaragua and other countries quite obviously the fact that the spanish police were not already there to stop these cars and the rest these people trying to use highly suspicious and it means either the spanish police were totally incompetent which i doubt because with a diplomatic question like that they'd be that within a city of law minutes or room speculate why didn't they surround the embassy need to create and stop those people getting out how they arrested anybody how come they know some of the people how come they know enough to say that two of them have cia contacts there are spanish forces and u.s. forces out to work to try cover up what really. happened so you cannot discount the possibility there may be one or two people who might have
a reason have been involved it could be part of the cia even trying to embarrass the cia all maybe at the end of the day to embarrass john bolton the national security advisor so they could be even be american forces yes indeed what to do about us other american forces that is possible. a teams of advance to the quarterfinals of football's champions league friday's draw will determine who faces whom for the first time in a decade half of the last eight are english sides former manchester united manager jersey marino gives his insight of predictions in his new show on the touchline. when you have in the box or on the box that special killer like ronald always anything will happen in italy they use these words the russian are taught it is the guy that brings everything we team more than the leader let me tell you that i'm not unhappy at all because in the end. only one that won it in touring for the whole season and now we has to build
a team the social media is changing a lot of the way people approach approach football what you already have a half sign up front cover not really. really sometimes i run when the distance is. so short or is it a very difficult part of your job to have time to. know. when i feel that i let it go i wish though it would make great television having cameras on the street is honest with you be happy without who he has i wasn't i wouldn't be happy. but. when you you go with the cameras to the dressing room before the game you show the position of the dressing room while the dressing room ease. of the shin pads of display of the shift of the other one i think this is. go into walls where you are not able to put the foot in the act of the teams that remain the strongest.
