6:50 am
a momentum is growing thousands of people have protested in support of the message is clear they want to do gone adding to the pressure a top ranking air force general declared his support for glider one saturday though he was later dismissed by the minute tree as a traitor. and that's the sort of you are referring to outstretch to all come and work like the air force general who took advantage of the amnesty law and put it into effect but we don't expect the armed forces just to make statements we expect they will stand up for sport of powerful. respect the constitution and thirty day except humanitarian aid of that they are on the thought of fairness while. but the president supporters of also been out in force they have been. demonstrating to mark the twentieth anniversary of the duros
6:51 am
success. i'm in favor of the logistics of this country being legitimate or free elections and of the people deciding upon the new national assembly and not afraid of such a decision you want to lections early elections then we will hold legislative elections latin america and it's an easy and human has more now from caracas president last night little is offering to bring forward the just related elections the national assembly remember is controlled by the opposition that is certainly not likely to fly with his opponents who are calling for him to step down for a transition government to be put in place and for new presidential elections to take place under international supervision or has not offered back kind of supervision even for parliamentary elections remember that when they were the last ones the opposition won two thirds of that assembly body and the government response was to create a new alternative super body a constituent assembly that bypasses the national assembly and so clearly this is
6:52 am
not expected to be an offer that will change things in any way in the meantime flung wide laws calling for his supporters to continue to go out onto the streets to hold another major rally on the tenth and on the twelfth of february as he calls for the international community to bring humanitarian aid to the border of venezuela with his with neighboring colombia and brazil and they're called on the armed forces to allow that to happen meanwhile the economic crisis in venezuela has forced millions to flee their homes they settled in neighboring countries and of help their own protests against madieu rose rule alessandra m.p.'s he reports from colombia's capital bogota. biggest residents of the broad have taken once again to the streets in a number of cities not cross the world in support of their combined threats to our inside minister who are protesting against the government nicolas maduro and in support of one of my dog the leader of the opposition movement and the
6:53 am
self-proclaimed interim president of the country the protests here in bogota is actually smaller than the last ones we've seen but the people who are here are saying it's important to continue putting pressure internationally if they believe that this time will be forced to step down i think this is the only way and finally we found a way to get rid of my doodle acme's dictatorship i think large rallies are being felt in my dream capital of spain also in the united states in miami and washington only york a number of south american countries whether or brasil in chile where many business will answer for the left more than three million venezuelans have left since they have left their country since two thousand and fifteen third's or more than a million are here in an actual local actually local authorities are saying that
6:54 am
those numbers have increased since the beginning of this latest crisis more and more are crossing into colombia many on foot and walking for days to try and reach the capital of what that or other countries in south america. quickly will face is the author of changing venezuela by taking power he says u.s. sanctions have made the situation in the country even. the point is though that the united states is taking the lead on all of this and is the one that is are blocking venezuelan oil exports now and this is that's the real issue it's trying to make the economic crisis in venezuela even worse than it already is and it is precisely those measures that the united states is taking that are leading the these two forces in venezuela on a collision course this wouldn't be happening if the u.s. wouldn't be as involved as it is at the moment the madrid government carries
6:55 am
a large part of the blame for the hyperinflation that has been going on in venezuela but my point is really that that the u.s. sanctions have made a bad situation even worse of course the fact that the majority government carries a large part of the blame has opened the opportunity really for the opposition and for the u.s. government to take this hardline position against me do in the hope that he will finally give in but like i said before if you look at the numbers of demonstrators the numbers of voters and venezuelans that still support him due to this is simply not going to happen. president lives imitation has announced that russia will withdraw from the intermediate range nuclear forces treaty on friday the u.s. formally announced it was suspending its obligations under the agreement both sides of accuse each other alliance aging the treaty which was signed in one thousand nine hundred eighty seven always challenge has more now from moscow. vladimir putin
6:56 am
held a meeting with his foreign and defense ministers on saturday shown on national t.v. and he explained what russia would do now that the united states has pulled out of the intermediate range nuclear forces treaty that's the solution. we will do it this way our response will be symmetrical our american partners stated they will stop their participation in the treaty so we will also stop they stated that they will do research and development of arms so we will also do the same he also said russia would not get into a costly arms race with the west that doesn't mean that russia won't pile into new weapons development just that initially at least it will try to do so with an existing defense budget years of military modernization have siphoned money away from social spending and with the real incomes of russians for lng for five straight years now more defense spending is unlikely to help me putin's
6:57 am
falling popularity defense minister sergei showing who recommends a land based version of the caliber cruise missiles russian ships have launched against targets in syria also a land based medium range hypersonic missile the new frontier in missile technology and there's the land based cruise missile russia already has according to the us this has a range that broke the terms of the i.n.f. treaty and was the reason washington gave for pulling out of the agreement there will be more briefings with and we're going to travel to military sites and factories really produce these weapons to scare the europeans and the world public opinion that they should come to terms with russia should make deals with russia not ignore russia because russia has terrible things putin says the door is open for new disarmament talks but he's made clear that russia will not
6:58 am
cause the. yes on this if there are to be any new treaties which we must go and washington hussein says it's washington that must break the ice to reach islands down to zero moscow. there i spoke to tom nicholls a professor of national security affairs at the u.s. naval war college he says washington's withdrawal from the nuclear treaty highlights how confused the trumpet ministrations policy is the russians now have the ability to look like the gracious and magnanimous party the americans are the ones that flipped over the table and walked away and let's be clear about something well as be clear about two things first i don't represent the us government's discussion. the other thing to be clear about is that the russians were cheating i mean there's no doubt about it the russians were in breach of the i.m.f. treaty and i think it was a provocation to first to menace the europeans and to see if they could beat the americans and the simply just walking away from this whole situation now the russians can afford to look like they're being diplomatic and magnanimous and
6:59 am
leaving the door open for further discussion so i sure think it's possible they'd be happy to talk because one of the course skill sets of russian diplomacy is long dilatory diplomatic engagements that don't go anywhere and we've just pushed that horizon further out by dumping the treaty instead of trying to rescue one that's still in effect when all the stories we're covering a suicide car bomb has exploded outside the ethiopian military base in somalia killing at least four soldiers as the attack happened in the town of blood here in the south of the country al-shabaab has claimed to be behind the attack mamata doe has more on the story now from nairobi. the talk happened in the town of bottom the region solved and somalia al-shabaab already claimed responsibility for the up talk saying they were targeting an ethiopian peacekeeper base but the attack actually hoppin at the checkpoint not far away from the ethiopian peacekeepers base
7:00 am
eyewitnesses spoke of a dusty minibus full of vegetables speeding towards the checkpoint forcing the ethiopian soldiers manning it to fire the minibus which did not stop until it exploded al-shabaab fighters in the past couple of months stepped up their tocs inside somalia and also outside they've cut it out attacks against somali national army bases they're also cut out on a toc last month in kenya in which they killed twenty one people but they've also been on the receiving end of u.s. forces who've been cutting out asterix against them inside somalia on thighs the u.s. forces said that killed twenty two fighters in hit on a region of southern somalia as well just two weeks ago they killed in a mass strike fifty two fighters who would just cut it all kind of talk on to some .
