a bad start for one top ranked player peter bother to tell us a little later in sport. but 1st one of sudan's main opposition parties has rejected calls from other protest leaders to organize a general strike on tuesday and wednesday it's the latest sign of divisions between opposition groups after weeks of political deadlock they're trying to force the military to hand over to civilian rule imran khan is joining us from khartoum who is calling to boycott the strike in iran and why they are not participating. well the boy the call for the boycott comes from the national party now this is a very powerful policy not so much here in the capital khartoum but in the ramon province which is where the base is they are incredibly powerful but they seem to have misread the situation during what's happened is if they've made this call
12:06 am
before december before the protests started people would have listened to them but they misread the situation and they realize that actually no one is listening to them and that the protests are planned likely to go ahead as planned because the political landscape has almost completely changed we have the sudanese professionals association they're the ones that are pushing for this strike saying that we will go ahead with the strike because we're being forced into it because the transitional military council that's the army aren't negotiating in good faith so people are taking a look at what the omaha team said and say actually you guys don't really matter anymore it's the sudanese professionals association here equality and it does and we're going to listen to them also you have to understand that may well be divisions within the opposition but they all coming together in recent days because of the way the transitional military council have acted in the last few days we've seen the vice chairman of the transition military council the obvious actively go
12:07 am
and see the saudi crown prince mohammed bin so man we've seen the chairman of the transformative council go and visit with the father of sisi the leader of egypt and now the chairman is in abu dhabi meeting with the crown prince of abu dhabi i haven't been inside and that's angered the protesters because they say this is a transitional military council is actually effectively acting like the de facto government of sudan so although that would evasions and these divisions are clear when it comes to the save your party and the rest of the coalition it seems to be on the ground that the way the army is acting is actually bringing the protesters together so these divisions that emraan are not being seen as a setback to the protest movement as a whole. no you have to understand that the this protest movement is very much coming from the people themselves it's also coming from the middle class of sudan the sudanese professionals association represents those people that are in jobs lawyers don't is people who work at the petrochemical industry and
12:08 am
things like that and these people are very keen to go out on strike because they realize that this strike is the last option that they actually have that they've run out of options and they say that the army isn't to go shooting with the opposition coalition in good faith so they going to strike i have to say the army has been spooked by the idea of a national strike taking place so much so that in the last few days the army is off a 3 month salary to the teachers to not to go on strike 3 months salary to the apple work is to not go in strike and a lot of what we're hearing from those workers is we are rejecting that money and we want to go on strike because we want civilian rule and that's really everything that you hate get out of the protests not very far away from me during the day which is ramadan people fasting all in the evening after the fos breaks the message is always the same civilian government and we want and we will do civilian disobedience in order to achieve our aims i'm entente thank you sources have told

hello again the top stories on al-jazeera iraq has spoken out against how the u.s. has treated its neighbor iran iraq's foreign minister says his country doesn't approve of the unilateral actions against iran but also offer to mediate voting is in its final stages throughout europe as the continent decides on the make up for its next parliament $751.00 politicians will be elected for a 5 year term algeria supreme court will investigate corruption cases against a number of former ministers 2 former prime ministers and 5 ministers from. governments were referred to the. peacekeeping has always been dangerous work men and women sent around the world trying to keep a lid on the worst conflicts and now it's financially volatile to the un's finding itself short of cash and warns missions hang in the balance our diplomatic editor james bays explains why. the u.n. is holding its annual events honoring the work of its peacekeepers around the world
12:21 am
. some of the most volatile places on earth last year 98 were killed while on chichi increasingly they also operate in a very difficult financial environment funds a tight with some budgets being cut or peacekeepers need better training and better equipment and that men need to be realistic and adequately support these with both resources and political will for many years un peacekeeping has been based on a grand bargain western countries the e.u. and the us providing specialized equipment and troops and the vast bulk of the money while most of the troops come from asia and africa. but the system is breaking down many countries but most notably the us are not paying their share un peacekeeping is owed a staggering sum over $1900000000.00 the countries providing the
12:22 am
peacekeepers countries like pakistan which has over $5000.00 men and women serving around the world are the ones currently having to pay most of the costs so here we are $2.00 contribution countries making sacrifices losing lives in order to maintain international peace and security and facing budget challenges so i think we need to fix this it needs to be fixed because this removes the most successful enterprise of the united nations and it should be adequately resourced the us owes way more than any other country to un peacekeeping that's been the case for many years but under president trump the size of the arrears has swelled to over $1100000000.00 a former obama administration official says it would make real sense to pay up now it's a little confusing. the united states side the u.s. cares about peacekeeping we see it in our interest u.s.
12:23 am
is a larger training training country for peacekeeping missions and our diplomats work worldwide to help them succeed because we see the value of these missions so some of this can and should be sorted out with congress so they fully fund the amount that the u.s. owes and we can resolve this shortfall the u.n. secretary general knows he must tread carefully president trump doesn't take kindly to demands for huge sums from international organizations even though in this case it's money that everyone agrees the u.s. is james bays al-jazeera the united nations let's speak to jacob kathman he's an associate professor of political science at state university of new york is joining us via skype from the city of buffalo thanks for your time with us on al-jazeera is the u.n. peacekeeping system broken. i wouldn't say it's broken while it is true that the u.s. does at times have a difficult time finding the political will to pay its share of its u.n.
12:24 am
dues this isn't something that is particularly new is this a difficulty that has gone back quite a bit. but also i mean the u.n. is at a point where. that's greatest personnel troop deployments worldwide so the budget difficulties today might be a little more of what you say heightened at this point going to has been previously ok and seeing as they are heightened then with the reduction in money does that mean a reduction in mandates and if so how difficult is it for u.n. peacekeepers to carry out their duties on the ground in these circumstances. i wouldn't say it would be a reduction in mandate so the mandate is the chairman let a cli primarily on the. permanent 5 members of the security council however to the extent that the peacekeeping budget is not able to cover the cost of
12:25 am
currently deployed soldiers then and given that those soldiers are provided voluntarily by the member states if those member states are not being reimbursed for the deployment of those soldiers then you could see member states deciding to pull their soldiers back from existing missions which would be critically important for the mission be able to use goals and what impact would that actually have on the ground. i can imagine that this would create in some instances a good deal of instability and one of the things that that soldiers do is they signal the commitment of the international community to bring resolution to these conflicts and one of the calmest conceptions of peacekeeping is that it's meant to keep peace that are to exist and that's simply not true in most cases the u.n. is the ploy to active conflict environments and when that's the case the effort put forward by the united nations is really important in terms of signaling to the
12:26 am
combatants and to the civilians on the ground that they're committed to short term and long term stability in most places to the extent that those soldiers are being underpaid. misused or or returned to their their member states their home countries and that could create a level of instability on the part of the combatants and civilians in those places are right to jacob catherine we thank you very much for speaking to us from buffalo thank you at least one person has died in northern peru where there's been a powerful earthquake the magnitude 8 event happened about 75 kilometers southeast of us district a civil defense spokesman says at least 11 people had been injured it's also caused power cuts in several cities and damage to buildings. indonesia's disputed election is now in the hands of the country's top court which is dealing with a challenge by the defeated candidates at least 7 people have been killed in clashes between opposition protesters and police since tuesday and there are now

with maturity would imply that there is not going to be a successful outcome here and that's what vice president pencil in the united states was saying you know just a day ago was that the talks there should be no talks and then today the state department said that if there are talks that the talks should be focused on the exit of madeira only nothing else in mexico the inability of police to reduce violent crime is being blamed for a growing number of vigilante attacks groups have burned some suspected criminals alive others have been hanged meanwhile rapido has more. on the streets of a neighborhood in the state of mexico. is meeting residents who said he says the leader of a neighborhood watch group set up in response to a growing crime rate in his state with some but a lot who sometimes police don't do their job sometimes there simply aren't enough officers or they don't patrol so if we can lend our support to looking out for
