2:02 pm
round of talks come at a very critical time in the conflict let's go live out of the al-jazeera is what a need is there so hala who is in vienna so far. well certainly. both delegations are here in vienna and the government delegation actually arrived at the u.n. building behind me just a short while ago in a chewed starting talks with the u.n. envoys to funded mistura then later in the day you will have the opposition delegation coming here and holding its first round of talks for this for what is called the geneva nine meeting now what is on the table i think you don't really get a direct answer about that what we did hear from the opposition some words along the same along to fund them is to have said that this these were critical talks and quite decisive talks but when you do press them on why it's so critical that answer
2:03 pm
is quite vague at the moment the opposition says it's here because it still regards do you as the only mediator or the only way to achieve some sort of peace negotiations the opposition says it does still favored the u.n. as the main way to go to reach some sort of solution and not all these other parallel negotiations that are going on the opposition also was very clearly saying yesterday that it still has not decided whether it will attend the talks are. set to happen early next week called upon by russia with turkey and iran as guarantors the opposition says it's going to first figure out what's going to happen here how serious the syrian government is on achieving some sort of dialogue
2:04 pm
the two main points they would like to discuss at this stage is the writing of a new constitution and presidential elections but if you remember during geneva which lasted about two weeks in early december well certainly nothing. happen there now at the end of those talks to find the mystery i had expressed frustration and he had actually pointed the finger at the government delegation saying that it had only wanted to talk about terrorism the opposition says it's now here it is somehow unified it used the words somehow saying that yes they will speak in one voice under this new group s.n.c. but within that group they do knowledge dead there are some disagreements not everybody thinks of use the past. the same way still they want to quell all these accusations of being fragmented so they are here at the moment and they say they will be talking in one voice ha to many thanks billionaires and world leaders
2:05 pm
are gearing up for a third day at the world economic forum in switzerland the most anticipated event will be the appearance of donald trump who's just landed in zurich he's now on his way to davos the first sitting u.s. president to attend the summit since the year two thousand but with his america first agenda many are skeptical about what he can bring to the table of a global focused forum which can live out of davus diplomatic editor james bays is trump is due to arrive within the hour there in davos bringing his america first message but is he going to be welcome james. well travis actually arrived actually aging about half an hour ago touched down here in marine one this year very much like every other year the global business leaders political leaders talk of global values global trade that's the normal dabbles the normal davus ended
2:06 pm
about half an hour ago trump is here trouble now dominate this for the next couple of days and everyone is wanting to hear what the president has to say here is he going to fifteen with the tone of everyone else or is this going to be the american america first domestic message here on the ground certainly the white house say america first but not alone and they say america is open for business so this is going to be the salesman in chief in action trying to encourage trade and investment in the u.s. i think even that message may be slightly frowned upon by the others here because this isn't a massive trade fair that's not what davos is supposed to be about so what's on trump's agenda there who see due to be meeting. well we have meetings coming up in a couple of hours' time he's now just taken his hotel room and will rest for
2:07 pm
a few hours then meeting one of the u.s.'s closest allies which is the british prime minister trees i'm a meeting with her will be followed about an hour later by meeting with the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu that clearly is key because remember president trump has talked for the whole year that he's been in office about his ability to bring a deal of peace deal to the middle east but of course that is going very badly indeed ever since the u.s. recognized jerusalem as israel's capital and more recently in the last week after it cut the funding it normally gives or some of the funding it normally gives to the u.n. agency that deals with the palestinians under a so he'll be talking here to the israelis yet again when of course he hasn't spoken the palestinian side now for weeks and weeks. by james many thanks d.j. space their lives in doubles a former u.s. diplomat has quit an international advisory panel tackling the hinge a crisis calling it a whitewash bill richardson was
