but the workers one must give them high respect they are going there and know how dangerous it is. >> reporter: the earthquake and tsunami damaged the reactors at noouk but unit four did not have a meltdown and the current experience will help it deal with the other three reactors where it's higher because of core meltdowns. tetco has criticism of handling of the nuclear crisis and it will safely decommission the plants, a process that could last decades. joanna, al jazeera. >> reporter: investigators are trying to establish why a russian plane killed 50 people in board and trying to land in the republican and peter sharp is in moscow. >> not much is left, the

what they have to say. >> as the capitol side by side with the state of israel living in harmony and peace. i welcome you, mr. president, a deal, guesses and honorable friends to the state of palestine. we also appreciate under the circumstances and your courage and circumstances opted by you condemning the palestinians and also given by your estate to lift the status of palestine to an observer member and before that and devoid of membership. we have held very constructive meetings where we discussed the means of the philippines of bilateral relations at old fronts and today i am pleased to
see six french ministers and the accompanying delegations which will pave the way for the giant committee to be between the two states for the development of mutual corporations between the two states, and the best answer is peace for the entire region. we together with the president discussed the development of the peace process in the middle east and the challenges facing the process. we will also discuss about developments and the latest incidents taken place in the region and it's impact on the whole world may lead them to national peace. we emphasize to the president that what undermines most the peace process which may be and the failure is they continue the
israeli expanding settlement on the palestinian including the eastern and the hostilities and hostile practices by the israeli citizens including vandalism, arson, raising of farms and assault on places of worship and the continued imprisonment of thousands of palestinian presidents and why we adhere to the last comprehensive lasting permanent peace. we will continue to exert efforts to reach a diplomatic solution that guarantees the establishment of peace, stability and reason ending the israeli occupation that started in 1967 and the establishment of the suffering and independent palestine with eastern jerusalem and it's a lynchpin to security
and stability in a region that will have positive impact on the countries and i will not fail to remember to heed the efforts experted by the u.s. president obama and the secretary of the state john kerry and also the international quarters including russia and the european union through the resolutions made by them that settlement by israel is unlawful. we also hail resolution taken by the european commission with regards to the products of the israeli settlement which will cause the israeli government to reconsider its policies of expanding settlements. it will also move forward the peace process. we hail the tour adopted by you mr. president thank you very much and we thank the european union and when we call for in
the products of the settlement does not mean that we call for by cutting the israeli products. our stance together with yours is known towards the israeli settlement. we cannot forget the continuous efforts exerted by france and the conference held in 2007 was a success. we look forward to continuing -- to continue working with you for holding another conference in paris at your convenience and it is with pleasure that we commend the economic support provided by the government of france which stands to this. in terms of the assistance to the budget, all the cooperation
through the france including secretary of water, sewage, education, technical support and aid show it best in the resent school for training of palestinianens and we will work for further development and cooperation and partnership, cultural, social and economical together with the political discussion and constitution and here i would like to heed the agreements signed today for the budget, local administration and establishment of a french school in palestine in partnership with the municipality. it will no doubt be a big one for knowledge and science.
on this occasion we bank on the efforts exerted by france and the auspices of president olan for the success of the conference for support of the palestinian cities. such partnerships and by mutual agreement with the french and european institutions carry great significance as they play a big role reenforcing the bonds of friendship and peace among peoples and governments. once again mr. president i thank you and i welcome you in this dangerous visit which will contribute to giving an additional impetus and momentum to our deeply rooted relations extending all the appreciation
to the government of the people of france. welcome you, mr. president, always to palestine. [applause] mr. president, i'd like to thank you first of all for this welcome which you have given me. and the trust which you have given us. this is the fourth time we are meeting each other, exchanging opinions since the beginning of my presidential mandate. it's my first time here in palestine. the time of this visit and coming here as the head of an
important delegation. as you know and i thank you. the ministers, the parlamentarians, friends of palestine but also i want to point out to you representatives of the jewish committee of france and rumala, this is the spirit of the people of france because the commitment of france is not something which is very resent in order to recognize the rights of both sides, the rights of a sovereign state of palestine and the rights of security for israel. these are not contradictory rights. these are rights which can
strength eneach other and give the best guaranty for security and peace for the israelis and to have a reliable palestinian state. and at the same time it cannot be a rival state for palestine unless there is a guaranty of israel's security. these are the principles which i go back to submittal and you mentioned them in 1981. they have been referred to regularly by my predecessors and so with even greater strength today i remind you this, because there is a peace process which has been undertaken, it is complicated, it is difficult, and it's easy to understand
because this conflict has been going on for decades and now we need to end it. you have accepted continuing discussions in order to seek a final agreement which will exhaust all the demands and will set down the rules, parameters, for the regions to be able to live in peace. you have also made gestures and one always has to make gestures if you want to reach peace. you have wished for there to be a discussion on all subjects in order to reach a fair solution. france trusts you and israel and
as well as the palestinian authority. it is not up to france to decide what the agreement should be about because it is you who has to make peace. we can only encourage you and to say to you what are the principles for us two states for two people living together side by side in peace and security with jerusalem as the capitol of the two states. safe, secure, recognized borders based on those of 1967, yes, but with the possibility of exchanging territory. and the possibility of international organization, of compensation, our palestinian
friends recognize these parameters but we must go through to the end and at one time commit ourselves. >> reporter: you are watching a live press conference from the west bank and a meeting with the palestinian president, let's cross over to al jazeera's mike who has been monitoring this press conference for us and mike is there, mike, both leaders not surprisingly focus on the stalled peace talks issue. how significant is tell visit? he has met with the israelis and palestinians but to what extent would both sides consider him a fair person? >> you heard from the palestinian president warm words of welcome and one must remember and was mentioned in the speech that france recognized the state of palestine in the u.n. general assembly last year and supportive of the eu settlement
outlines which have been brought into being as well. so certainly france seemed very much in palestinian eyes as a good friend and as a fair interlocker in terms of it recognizes the palestinian state and the words that he spoke there particularly concerning the stumbling blocks within negotiation, principally as he pointed out, settlements are words that he hopes the french president will take back with further talks with the prime minister in the course of the day. >> reporter: mike, in terms of confidence billing gestures and we heard about this, what measures would he be looking for? >> well, we had the question, a phrase that has been used repeatedly every time he refers to the negotiation process and that is gestures. he says that both sides have to make some form of gesture to push this process forward and
not quite clear what exact gestures he is looking at from the palestinians at this point but he said that the palestinian state requires the recognition of israeli security. now whether this is some kind of code for palestinian recognition of israel as a jewish state, well, that is open to question at this particular point but it's very unclear as to exact gestures the palestinians can make on the israeli side and they would argue strongly and so too would the french president that freezing the settlement building would be more than a gesture and actually could be a crow bartow -- bar, to move this process forward. >> reporter: time for a short break and indonesia is talking about spying planes and joe will be here to tell you how the
737 after landing and all 50 people on board were killed and the cause of the accident is unknown. and the philippine's president is leading government relief operations in typhoon hit areas after the official response. there are growing concerns of supplies of food and medicines failing to reach people who need them most. the u.n. is responding to criticism about the relief efforts saying despite the scale of disaster aid is reaching those in need. >> this is massive, between 10-12.9 million people have to be assisted to recover from this, it's absolutely huge, it's like taking a -- the whole of belgium and trying to assist. it really is a huge effort. >> and number of people and the nightmare and this fret, we are not talking about months, we are
talking years before that portion of the territory of this beautiful country can get back on its feet. >> reporter: and i'm joined live from tack tacloban and david it's interesting because the world health organization says the medical relief is a monumentel challenge and they placed this on the shoulders of the medical relief part of the operation. what is your overall assessment of the medal progress being made now? >> the medical system here was practically destroyed. the typhoon went here and just shut down the whole health system. at the moment the biggest problem we are having is logistics and trouble getting medicine and logistic supplies to open hospitals from saboo and manila and the airport is struggling with the demand and struggling with refueling planes
and getting planes in and out of here. >> reporter: what are the major sort of medical problems your teams are seeing on the ground in terms of injuries and disease, what are you treating people for? >> just tell you i'm not a doctor but the things that the doctors are telling me is that they are seeing wounds from people going back in their houses who cut themselves or fall off roofs and that sort of thing. some of the other hospitals are treating wounds from the typhoon that are effected. there is a little bit of tetnus and upper respiratory infection and diarrhea. >> reporter: how are you getting to the remote areas that many of the relief operators had difficulty getting to? >> darren, i hear what you are saying about having trouble getting there but we drove down
30 kilometers yesterday and walked in a village no one had been to in ten days since the typhoon. the philippine government and the ngos here have done an amazing job clearing the roads. the roads here in tacloban are clear and all passable. if people are saying there is difficulty getting places, medicines is not seeing it. we have been able to get and gain access to basically the whole island. >> reporter: a final thought for you and i know you are not a doctor and i don't know if you can try and answer this for us, what do you think sort of longer term medical and health problems might be as people try and rebuild their lives? can nsf help to support the people in the long-term? >> most definitely, darren, we made a commitment to be here and help people in the philippines, often after situations like this
after the coming weeks and months there is mental health problems and people start to reflect and suffer from mental health problems and we have a psychologist on the ground and starting to work and do assessments and also rebuilding a hospital to help with surgeries, deliveries and in-patient departments. >> reporter: david reported in tacloban in the philippines and david, thank you for that. and bangladesh prime minister will swear in the new cabinet but won't include members of the main opposition party and she had a number of seats but party leaders said it can accept if she resigned as prime minister during campaign elections and this will take place in january. the trial of controversial south african politician julias and four others is postponed and facing charges of money laundering and racketeering and the movement gathered outside

call that was made to the indonesia president is new and what also is new they tried also to listen in to the phone calls and try and track down his wife's phone as well as members of the elite, this is new and this is really sent relations with indonesia in a tail spin and prime minister refusing to give much away tonight but relations are particular low, since 2006 since australia withdraw the ambassador and it was an overreaction because of a west seekers that came here and reaction tonight is much more expected because to know that we were actually trying to get to his wife's phone as well as his phone itself is regarded pretty seriously here and of course very seriously in indonesia. >> i was going to say, brian, is this likely to be embarrassing for the australian government and how is the whole thing
likely to be seen by people there in australia? >> well, you have to be reminded we have a new government here and it was elected three months ago and came to power saying the relationship with indonesia was the most important relationship and planned to work on that relationship, it had to work on that relationship because the conservative government here was elected on the basis of stopping refugees and boats from coming here and to do that it needs the cooperation of indonesia and indonesia said it's reviewing this and it's a disaster for the government here. >> brian, thank you. in a moment joe will have all the sport including nba, the king reign supreme and more on that. ♪
