it's for kids venezuelan kids to study the in the ankle won't be asked and for seniors and people who were in urgent medical need so that's what we're seeing right now it's an easing of the situation however as you're saying people are piling got things crossing is not that easy even on the legal bridges because they were blocked with containers by the venice but on government and those containers are still there sort of somehow is colombia handling this influx than. well it's definitely one of the biggest crisis toward the governments here how to deal with it at least for now 1300000 venezuelans that are already inside colombia the 10s of thousands that cross on a daily basis through these illegal crossings are already legally in search of goods goods in search of informal jobs so far what the colombian government has
12:01 am
been doing mostly to issue a very large number of temporary working permits but colombia has so far doesn't want to recognize them as refugees something that the u.n. says now the international community should do when discussing ways to deal with this extra there is the largest possibly that last you know mike has ever seen now we also know that the mayors and governors of the cities and regions along the border between colombia and business well are asking for more help they say that's the social services are under huge strain extensionally medical services that their hospitals are collapsing and that's because now we're seeing a large number of venice what is that riding with more complicated that the season is. only says that it's very difficult for these small towns in colombia to deal
12:02 am
with it's a very complicated that is to ation and of course what colombia is hoping for is that a change of regime or at least the beginning of a transitional period going towards new elections inside business whenever we don't see anything happening this ruling in that direction and that the temps now at talks that were started by an international coalition of european countries also seems to be faltering the leader of the elf position which many international countries recognize as a sort of a parallel presidency inside of venezuela one why does that those stocks at least for now are not going anywhere alexandra thank you. just a day after a deal between the u.s. and mexico on tariffs and immigration migrants continue to make the journey between guatemala and mexico the southern border mexico's the point 6000 national guard
12:03 am
troops to its border with guatemala to try to stem the flow of migrants who are trying to get to the u.s. it is suspended the u.s. had suspended plans to impose tariffs on all mexican goods as part of this deal rob reynolds has more from washington. the u.s. threat to impose punitive tariffs on mexico led to a week of intense negotiations ending in a last minute accord president donald trump announced in a tweet the united states of america has reached and signed agreement with mexico the tariffs scheduled to be implemented by the u.s. on monday against mexico are hereby indefinitely suspended mexico in turn has agreed to take strong measures to stem the tide of migration through mexico and to our southern border this is being done to greatly reduce or eliminate illegal immigration coming from mexico and into the united states mexican foreign minister marcello said the 2 sides reached a compromise but he said it was i think it's
12:04 am
a fair balance because the us had more drastic proposals at the start and we have reached a middle point that we agreed to support mexico's proposal to support the central american countries. mexico had already agreed to send troops to its border with what amala to control the flow of migrants seeking asylum in the u.s. it's now also agreed the u.s. could send asylum seekers who've entered the united states back to mexico to await legal rulings on their status but the us had to give up on its earlier demand that all guatemalan asylum seekers be deported to mexico and that honduran and salvadoran asylum seekers sent to guatemala the agreement also calls for the u.s. and mexico to work together to improve economic conditions and security in impoverished crime ridden central american countries the root causes of migration the deal is
12:05 am
a political victory for trump who has made stopping migration the central pillar of his political brand and who had faced opposition from within his party to the proposed tariffs rob reynolds al-jazeera washington. ileum fresco is a former deputy assistant attorney general in charge of immigration at the u.s. department of justice he joins us via skype now from washington thanks very much for being with us i'm not sure if we still if we still have in this at this point i'm told that we've just lost our connection to him and i'm being told we we do have him can you hear me sir yes i can ok excellent our so i want to ask you then. what do you make of the of the legal issues that this throws up now because the this declaration at least as the state department has announced it is saying that mexico will accept an expansion of the trumpet ministrations program to make some migrants wait in mexico while there are saddam claims are heard in the united
12:06 am
states what sort of legal issues does that raise for you then. well it raises the legal issues of whether the people who are declaring fear from the lot of mylan and el salvadoran gangs that are that they're fleeing from actually safe in mexico while they're waiting for their a phylum playing it's often not they to be waiting at mexico or by slate for months and months they can possibly a to have a claim an immigration court in the united states and it also raises the issue of well who are you going to get represent you in your immigration court proceeding you have to get a lawyer that will be crossing from the united states into mexico with you about your kate and all of the hail will need to be worked out by the drug administration is trying to get it from breathing room because the numbers continue to go up on the other border this would be. something of
12:07 am
a climb down though by. president chummed i wouldn't because this is this was one of the reported key demands would was to get mexico to take in asylum seekers. who were coming from guatemala and other places heading for the u.s. and process their claims on that on their own soil soil from the beginning they didn't get that did that correct what they wanted originally was something called the say 3rd country agreement which is that mexico would be considered a state 3rd country that if you arrived in mexico that's where you have the phylum that the united states and mexico just simply doesn't have the infrastructure to agree to that and so even if you place power from mexico there was no way mexico were going to agree to accept hundreds of thousands of people in mexico in order to process for filing claims now the complication is need be of get reached every few months between the united states and mexico but at the end of the day the question then becomes ok well what happens on the border do they end up not really caring
12:08 am
and they're letting the people cross into the united states and that's kind of what i asked. every month when we reach mexico it's very rare that you actually get congress and the problem i get result from the devil is going to be at the detail here how are they that they like to reimplement what do you say to those who argue that this. this kind of sending sending so many of these migrants backed 2 or at least a certain number of them back to mexico where they asylum claims will while they wait there for their asylum claims in the u.s. is a violation of their rights because once they enter u.s. soil they can claim they can legally claim asylum and stay in the united states while the case is is being heard a while back that that certainly is a claim that right now is making its way through the courts the 9th circuit court
12:09 am
of appeals has allowed that practice to continue although it waiting it while waiting on the for the issue while it's letting it continue and the question is to be decided by the court which is are you violating a file of law if someone is thinking of phylum in the united states and you're reporting back to mexico and the crux of it is is the person actually have a claim that they were in mexico while they're waiting for a filing in the united states because the theory is well if they win their case they're still going to be given a file of the united states just a matter of where will they be allowed for wait while they're playing the and that and i think they're going to have to work out that they these you number one and they're going to have to work out the attorney is. going to be very very hard fact that from attorney if you're for the way that mexico or your claim but ultimately going to be heard in the united states so i think those 2 issues will have to be litigated through the courts and we'll see where the court than but the court the
12:10 am
supreme court is now a conservative court this possible that that generate would be a. all right good to speak with you leon fresco. the palestinian leadership has condemned comments by the u.s. ambassador to israel in which he said the israeli government has the right to annex part of the occupied west bank the prime minister benjamin netanyahu has promised to begin annexing israeli settlements in the territory that would violate international law in an interview with the new york times david friedman said under certain circumstances i think israel has the right to retain some but unlikely all of the west bank and he joins us live now from ramallah in the occupied west bank so i need a how have palestinians responded to these comments from the u.s. ambassador. we've heard 1st from the p.l.o. secretary general has him who says that this should send
12:11 am
a clear message to anyone who is planning to go to the nam a conference that is expected to be held in a few weeks he said that the u.s. is going to support israel's an exception of occupied territory which is considered illegal and a war crime under international law we've also heard from p.l.o. those executive men but hannan who says that the u.s. is justifying land theft we've also heard from a statement by 1st a boy which is the ruling party in the west bank in which they said that they don't know if the u.s. ambassador is representing the view of israeli settlers or that of the u.s. administration. and this is happening in the same time as well not least not long after the palestinian leaderships decision to boycott this economic summit that's going to be taking place in manama what's what's happening with that tell us about the. so palestinians have been boycotting this conference that is expected to be
12:12 am
held in a couple of weeks in beheading they say that they're not looking for an economic solution to the palestinian israeli conflict they're not looking for a better life under occupation they want any solution to the palestinian israeli conflict to include a political component they want an end of the occupation and not a better life under it they say that they want to measure the lateral approach in which the u.s. is not just the sole mediator of any future peace process need abraham in ramallah thank you are plenty more ahead on this news hour more than 22000000 children out of school in pakistan we look at what the government is doing to change that. army welling's empower is the biggest women's sports event of our reason why the women's world cup and the house national started well.
12:13 am
for less than i have a 1st iran says new sanctions on its petrochemical industry show the u.s. is not serious about its calls for dialogue sanctions targeted rons largest petrochemical group which provides billions of dollars to the islamic revolutionary guard corps the u.s. branded the elite military unit a terrorist organization and that comes a week after my pompei o the u.s. secretary of state announced that it was ready to sit down with iran iran's oil minister says it is keeping our oil sales through what he calls unconventional means to circumvent u.s. sanctions also joe body has more from tehran. well this move is being called economic terrorism according to the foreign ministry spokesman up us mousavi this is a continuation of the united states government's policy towards iran of putting pressure on the pressure on iran and the people of this country and that the suggestion last week by officials in the united states that they were willing to talk with the
12:14 am
iranians is not really a true one it's not they does not what they actually mean they're not true to their words that they cannot be trusted the iranian oil minister has also been speaking on saturday saying that iran has absolutely no plans to leave opec and the gap that's been created in the oil markets by iran being not being able to sell all its oil on the international market can never actually be filled by any of the countries such as saudi arabia and the u.a.e. so he's also reiterating iran's position that all these sanctions they might put some pressure on the country but nobody can actually replace what they're trying to do all the pressure from u.s. sanctions is having an effect on iran's economy with export margins tight investors are turning to small and medium sized businesses like coffee shops that can still turn a profit they must be has more from tehran. in iran oil isn't the only source of energy suffering under american sanctions the threat of punishment has made
12:15 am
doing any kind of trade with iran highly risky for foreign companies that even in a cup of coffee the plight of iran's small businesses can be found. shyly muscly is a trained lab scientist whose passion for the drink inspired her to become possibly iran's 1st and only female coffee bean roaster we have some trade there is business marketing and there is a kind of like coffee. factories you can be buy from around then but because of the sanctions they don't want to get me wrong they send copies to the body of our territory and we get it from there and we buy them at the most precious time of their life once we get them like 7 or 8 months later the work is delicate timing is everything a bad batch gets thrown out and sanctions have made these beans more precious than ever so people need a cup or 10 just to wake up in the morning for others it's
12:16 am
a way that you come together for the people here who make the coffee they say it's the perfect marriage of art and sun a coffee roaster from germany is this cafes pride and joy a piece of precision equipment it needs regular maintenance and new parts but the manufacturers headquarters in germany and offices in istanbul and by have all refused to service it in iran after months of emails cafe managers found a technician from friends who wanted to come on holiday and was willing to bring the parts and do the work but going through back channels is time consuming and expensive. but jumping hurdles is the part of running a business the cafe owner most in mudgee the hall likes the best. it's become very difficult but it is interesting for us because we have to innovate it's a challenge. like chodas when i compare myself to people who have businesses abroad i feel i'm doing better here because they can do whatever they want but we mustn't
12:17 am
be in things here. still sanctions are hurting bottom lines many cafes have already closed their doors. and iran's old coffeehouses or cowboy economy are also under threat losing money could make it harder to preserve the roots of persian cafe culture you know i think about my grandparents my great great grandparents who were hanging out in these kind of places back in the old days a serious concern for employers is also young people heading abroad to find work i mean that sucks i mean that's that's horrible we're losing a lot of these talented. folks just because of that because. they see the future of. coffee business as somehow limited for them in the wrong. muscly says she wants to enroll in
12:18 am
a new coffee program at the university of california in the united states but a ban on visas for iranians makes that dream seem impossible because even darker green but the create some like senior head trying to show you how some day i will. let you know that they tend not to do as a self described coffee lover cup it seems is cold as half full and part. of the same but the old is hero to her. sri lanka's intelligence chief has left his post after an emergency meeting on friday prayers president might the policy be seen as said he sacked c c it out mendis after he appeared before parliamentary committee investigating the april attacks mendis says he resigned on thursday he told the committee the attacks could have been prevented and said the president should have held more security meetings president city ciena is refusing to cooperate with the

12:21 am
policy as justification to continue the conflict further jeopardizing prospects for a political settlement and threatening regional stability now what these congress men and women are trying to do is make this issue that gets covered because this is an administration that tends to react to what they see and read in the media and right now the conflict in libya is really not being covered at all. all right still ahead on al-jazeera the rebels in yemen released new video they say shows an incursion into saudi arabia. by turns for australia's preparations for the upcoming cricket world cup game take an unexpected turn. hello we settle down to gently rising temperatures over the plain of iraq the cloud

12:26 am
a threat that some are warning could be counterproductive the united states needs especially in the middle east if you if the iran issue is taken into consideration . and i extract compromise because the united states in the middle east is dependent on trial jewish territory turkey support in terms of. when the war in syria escalated turkey complained nisar sold by its nato allies were too expensive and in 2015 its partners withdrew their patridge missiles from southern turkey turkey it then turned to russia to force its missile defenses now some say moscow is exploiting the situation here or the overriding variation on the side of moscow is really to trigger a political escalation between turkey in the night and states which will have a very negative impact on the cohesion of the western alliance and they don't
