5:02 pm
a terrorists out from the area and create a buffer zone on the border and the special envoy for syria says the ninth round of talks comes at a very critical time in the conflict a correspondent joins us live from vienna what are we hearing from the talks so far . we're actually hearing not very much what we do know is that the meeting between the u.n. envoy to find the minister and the syrian government delegation is now over but we haven't heard any comment at the end of that meeting it lasted about two and a half to three hours now in about an hour you will have the opposition coming here to the u.n. building and they will hold their meeting or at least their first round of meetings for this talks with the founder mr and now the opposition yesterday did say that these talks were critical and definitive as they put it and when asked why they
5:03 pm
were saying simply because these are the talks that will show the seriousness of all parties to basically start didn't go she should because at the moment there's a deadlock this deadlock has been going for a long time and what we have heard from the syrian delegation that was in this building. moments ago is that they had no i gin the that delegation had nothing on the agenda they were not willing to talk about the constitution or elections supervised by the u.n. which were to two main points that were supposed to be discussed not only this round but even during geneva eight last december now the government says that it was unhappy with the report that was given by stiff to or to the u.n. security council it felt that it was biased against the syrian regime and it wanted to hear from stiffen the mist what was the thinking behind that report but it sort of indicated at least that was earlier in the day that it wasn't ready to talk
5:04 pm
about anything else at this stage is it worth a look or talk about the constitution not going to talk about elections what else is there that needs to be discussed. well that is the big question i think when you when you listen to the opposition it is very important for them. as you have this new essence see it is showing a united front you know one of the main complaints by not only the syrian government but also for example russia is that it's seen that this opposition was fragmented with the various platforms the chiropractor from the moscow platform the truck for now they say that they have come together that they are speaking in one voice even though not everyone agrees on everything within themselves but they're here to show that and also i think for the opposition is very important because they do still believe that this u.n. sponsored talks if they ever happen are the only way forward they did say that they
5:05 pm
will not decide on whether they're going to go to sochi next week unless until the end of this round of talks is anyone expecting anything to come out of that probably not and that is something you would hear both sides you probably didn't hear directly from the mistura but at the end of the last round of negotiations he had said that there had been no talks whatsoever doing that round that lasted for two weeks the opposition is showing itself energetic between geneva eight engine even nine now they have been around the world they have been to do you and they have been to washington this book to congress they spoke to president mccall they went to moscow they went to turkey they went to the arab capitals they went all around basically all the players to bring momentum to get backing and to get them sort of assurance that this is the only process. which would bring about any kind

the reaction to my point that this issue of reuters journalists being treated fairly and rapidly. that brought almost an explosion on her part. saying there were issues relating to the official secrecies act that this was not my charter as a member of the advisory board and the very heated exchange that we have i don't want to be part of a whitewash. and i felt it's best but then i resign immediately all mammals military is accused of using gang rape as part of an ethnic cleansing campaign against the range of rights groups say the attacks occurred during a recent crackdown in rock states in which as many as seven thousand people are thought to have been killed charles traffic reports from could to pile on refugee camp in bangladesh. fifteen and seventeen years old say myanmar all the

5:09 pm
whether the interests of powerful countries like china could jeopardize myanmar ever fully being called to account. gathering evidence in myanmar is almost impossible at the moment the myanmar government has banned the un's top human rights investigator from entering the country me and my has made a very big mistake in banning myself and also a fact finding mission and other investigative teams to going in because this is exactly what the world needs to to see and hear from is their first hand reports from persons like myself and others rights groups say the un security council should refer me to the international criminal court in the hague. but the i.c.c. only has jurisdiction over crimes committed by states that have signed its founding treaty the rome statute and we is not a signatory getting myanmar an i.c.c. referral in the un security council would likely fail because of china's power of

5:11 pm
a message that cooperation is better than isolation i hope he will send a message so of course it will be america first but if you could add on but not alone or but america first time we need cooperation with the rest of the world or whatever that could be nice because i think everybody needs to realize whether you are a leader from a small or medium size of become true is that you can't achieve what you want. on your own the world faced with a lot of challenges. which can only be solved in the close international cooperation. that james paces in davos joins us live from the jim some of these if it isn't it america first agenda at a forum of global. yes how is he going to fit in with other world leaders like the canadian prime minister who's just walked past me now is that trump america first view going to fifteen with the rest of the business and political leaders president
