on iran or in his words to provide some sort of compensation mechanism to quote enable the uranium people to live better of course those sanctions were imposed by the u.s. last year after it pulled out of the nuclear deal known as the j c p o a iran says that that was a neutral unilateral act which means that the u.s. has broken its commitments under the deal the us obviously accuses iran of doing likewise there have been positive signs then from iran we understand the term emanuel macross has been speaking about the subject also on the phone with president trump this week as well as when he met president putin of russia earlier in the week so he's certainly bringing up are every opportunity this is something seen as some sort of side initiative very much criticized by the u.s. so far they've said that paris has been sending mixed messages to tehran. and wants
7:01 pm
the chances do you think of a breakthrough. well it depends what you mean by a breakthrough it's quite possible although we're not expecting a press conference that there will be some sort of agreement in the next few hours on what we believe president mccraw is going to suggest some months allowing certain countries for a limited time to purchase iranian crude oil because at the moment those purchases are under those u.s. sanctions so they want they're suggesting that there are waivers brought in at least for a just for a limited time so that discussions with the iranian government can begin in earnest of course they're well aware also of the tensions in the gulf with the seizure of those tankers they want something the french government wants something that they can bring to the table at the g. 7 meeting this week a. it's micro himself admits that there are divisions within the g 7 over iran but
7:02 pm
what's not clear right now is whether such proposals will get any headway with president trump and his security advisor john bolton who so far have seems to want to ramp up the pressure on iran whereas many of the european allies see that as somewhere that's not going to get results the bobber there live from paris with that update nadine i'm sure will talk to you later in the day funky now the syrian army has moved into the area around a turkish observation post in northern hama state t.v. is reporting that government forces are meters away from turkish troops and more day after capturing times in villages in the northern countryside let's go live to burn a smith in antakya in hatay province near the syrian border there burn and so are we hearing anything official then from the turkish side of things
7:03 pm
nothing official from the turks yet julie but what we're seeing happening in this part of syria is essentially syrian forces us forces consolidating their grip on this countryside just to the south of italy pretty much all of that now is under the control of the syrian armed forces some of the towns and villages they've taken over in the last few weeks and days of in rebel hands since almost the start of the civil war since around 7 eeriest ago i was happened is that the syrian. sorry what's happened is that syrian forces. sorry turkish forces have about a dozen observation posts around but in that part of the syrian countryside essentially they were to monitor what are called the escalation zone in zones in agreement with iran and the russians but what has happened is essentially these are become escalation zones and they asked our forces are now in territory that the
7:04 pm
city that the turks say they are observation has been no confrontation between the turks and the acid forces it is just now that the turks are in areas controlled by assad forces julie and bernard on a different note what about progress in the sabbaths months of these what they're calling safe zones are we any more further forward there what we see happening now south of it live is why turkey is so desperate to get the save zones up and running along its turkey syria border because as the assad forces push north up towards the countryside so hundreds of thousands of people are fleeing the fighting many as half a 1000000 say the u.n. and they're going towards the syria turkey border turkey is not going to let them in and it doesn't want them amassing on the border it wants to create a safe zone so the people can live safely in that area so that turkey can send back syrian refugees as well and so that turkey can push back syrian kurdish fighters in
7:05 pm
that area as well but while the u.s. and the turks say they're still talking about the safe zone we've still no indication as to how deep it's going to be as to whether the turks and the americans will patrol together the americans want to patrol separately we still don't know any of that the turks are just telling us that they're still talking julie burnitz missed their lines from antakya brad thank you. well there's much more still to come on the program. south korea scraps an intelligence sharing pact with japan as relations worsened over trade and their wartime history. a hong kong court makes a ruling to ensure last week's airport protest won't be but pizza. almost taste have come back to this this level of. stuff maybe in a glass and former heavyweight champion tyson fury opens up about his mental health

7:08 pm
me what some units of blood on the internet are turned into. this social worker was one of those who brought the girl to hospital and told us that she grew up an orphan and was raised by her grandmother but was forced to flee how home when her grandmother and called tried to force her to marry a blind man that is when she fell prey to the man who raped her. despite what she's been through the young mother already has dreams for her baby. i don't want my daughter to go through the same suffering as i did when she starts walking both of us will go to school. police say they were arrested the man suspected in her rape last december but they have this plea for families of rape victims punishment for our friend us can serve as deterrents to orders intending to do the same but when family members turn to make good shit to kind of receive more news from from
7:09 pm
suspects all to try to prevent prosecution we family members can come up to help us let the prosecution process be concluded. the plight of the little girl prematurely propelled to motherhood is 1st becoming a rallying cry for those seeking action only in nigeria's displaced people's camps many hope that her case will spark the authorities to take action too and such horrendous crime once and for all 100 or 2 i'll just see her. jewelry. well sealed tical is the director of amnesty international in nigeria and she joins us from the capital. also a very warm welcome see the program thanks for joining us also just how widespread is this problem of rape in the camps. rigby's one of the most serious risks women and girls face in this poorly arranged a d.p.
7:10 pm
camp you recall that came out as a result of the conflict happening in the me too built region and about and so they're not proper facilities in place to ensure that girls and women are protected and where they're not provisions humanitarian assistance they can't go around to many of these young women and girls find themselves down to streets trying to find jobs or begging and this makes them really vulnerable to do those who would want to exploit them in order to. for whatever reasons and another to make it quite difficult for them to get the support and assistance to meet also what kind of effect does this have on a victim who is already insecure and whose often been the placed displaced already what kind of effect does this sort of crime have on the victim who is a woman and of course all of the other women around her to will also feel and say.
7:11 pm
there's a lot of mental trauma stress fear saw and also psychological effects of this environment already day away from home so there's that these conflicts then these apprehension that wherever did wherever the libya hit they're not safe it could be at tax and then the fact that they have to make a choice between starvation and having sex with this dream also all is highlighted then in most cases people comment office for help and that is where you find the situation where big girls clearly girls and young women are forced and then republicans saw it's it's like a constant circle of fear which creates quite see huge amount of mental trauma for many of the women even for those who have not been affected yes was yes good for themselves it's good for the actual dream and everyone is just trying to survive to
7:12 pm
live for the next they're hoping that the authorities will come to the heat and you can go back home again and also do the authorities ever come to their aid i mean what can be done to make things better in as you say often these hastily arranged camps. so oftentimes you find that there was the visits where and the camp was established and then there after there left to do devices of which of agency is actually the coordinating these camps so the measure my methods see commission is definitely one of the agencies involved but they're overwhelmed to be overwhelmed and this is a crisis they did not know that was going to you know overwhelm them this much so help does not seem to be coming anytime soon and that's why we need a lot more attention drawn to the effects of the conflicts and the crises and the clashes that have happened in the middle belt region in order to ensure that we can
7:13 pm
resolve those conflicts and that people can go home but most importantly when women and girls cry out and the complain about the challenges they're having including reach their kids he said treat it seriously because the impunity we're seeing is because no one has ever been brought to justice as a result of this and people just see it as an after effect as an end of fortunate incident as and what can we do there we're from who are not protected so almost too late it's an innovative will thing to happen so we know really need that attention drawn to eat globalise so that this is that this is something that the government stops so that at least we can prevent it from happening to other women and young girls or say a jiko they're joining me from amnesty international in nigeria all say thank you you're welcome thank you for having me. violence and insecurity are robbing almost
7:14 pm
2000000 children of an education in central and west africa a real poured so by the u.n. children's fund that soon if it unicef examines thread some attacks in 8 countries it singles out mali where attacks on schools have been doubled between 2017 and this year in central african republic that figure rose again by more than a 5th and school closures juicer violence have gone up 6 full over the past 2 years in britain a fossil bali and in the share pass in a careless chief of unicef's africa service unit as the lead and is the lead author of this report she's in johannesburg pass a warm welcome to the program that is the author of this report as you were writing and as you see in the cold light of day what is the thing that strikes you from the data. well the thing that strikes me most is the from 1000000000 children across these 8 countries they're being pushed out
7:15 pm
of education due to insecurity that is a large number especially if you take into consideration that education is not only something that is important for the individual but it's also important for the families it's also important for the community and for the countries at large so the ripple effect of this is each is actually quite enormous and it will play out across the rest of their lives really a patsy what occurs to me is when you talk about the ripple effects i wonder when a child's education is lost to them what is the effect that that has on their lives and and their potential in life if you like. yeah well 2 things 1st of all i'd like to bring to you the words of a priest that i met in northern burkina faso just a few weeks ago father arcadius so adorable who is saying that without education we have no development and when you have such a large number of children out of school especially girls this has an extremely
7:16 pm
serious the tremendous effect on the country and that's that's another thing that perhaps strikes me as well that in a situation where you have education under threats where you have the livelihoods and the lives and futures of children parents are really extremely concerned about this and you understood you see when meeting with them with the families and with the children selves how important they feel that education is both so that is perhaps you know one of the main messages we'd like to we'd like to bring forth is the voices of these children there are being prevented from from receiving like the most basic of education we're not asking for much here and also the fact that they're very parents in some cases are you know they're risking their lives the lives of their their children when they do try to send their kids to school and patsy and this is always a very difficult questions of polls what what can be done once the message is out there what what would you like to see happen. i'm afraid i can't i can't hear you so have i'm so sorry patsy i'll try once more i
7:17 pm
say what would you like to see happen. i think we've lost our guest patsy mchale their chief of unicef's africa service unit patsy thank you. in just a moment we will have the weather and then. the salting of clear react so that's heading to the un. and then sports or lankan cricket decides it still isn't safe enough to play a test match in pakistan but they say they and i will and so one day.

7:26 pm
others like you are contributing to that are you satisfied now that you have succeeded in one of your primary goals which is to basically wreck the hong kong economy well i believe. the only thing that is hurting hong kong economy generally and also including a tourist industry is starts people from around the world do not think hong kong is a safe city when they hear that property rights that personal safety cannot be protracted and if the extradition be was passed it it's what happened so what we're doing now is trying to save home calm in order to. keep this safety. u.n. investigators say the scale of sexual violence by the me and my military against the were hija was so widespread and severe that it demonstrates what they call an intent to commit genocide a report says soldiers routinely and systematically raped gang raped and sexually abused women children men and transgender people the u.n.

across the border here to bangladesh in just the space of a few weeks and this is why this is now the biggest refugee camp in the world these people want justice what does that mean it means they want to go home but they want to go home with full guarantees of citizenship and security and not it seems a long way off. russian opposition leader alexina volley is predicting protests against president vladimir putin i sets a goal of almost just been released from prison after a month behind bars for encouraging demonstrations in moscow calling for free elections several offices and candidates of the bolts from running on technicalities just moved me to the store run you for this right now we see that lies and fraud are not enough for them it's not enough to bend the candidates from the election they want to arrest and beat up people to smash anti-corruption organizations and these organizations can see they have no support and people feel afraid. russia is known to me world's 1st floating nuclear power plant will be told
7:29 pm
thousands of kilometers to the is to provide energy to remote communities the greenpeace activists say there are safety risks and the plant could become what they are calling a turnover on ice stopped us and of course now from moscow. a nuclear power plant sailing the seas russia says it's one of the safest and cleanest ways to provide energy to remote areas the academic low monos of combines both the technology of a nuclear powered icebreaker and that of a land based nuclear plant it took 10 years to design and build the power plant will be towed by 3 boats 4 more months to the region of 2 caught 5000 kilometers away on a journey that could take up to 6 weeks depending on the ice the 2 reactor unit is one of the key projects of president put in so-called northern sea route a fastest sea connection between europe and asia which has become accessible due to a melting arctic despite safety concerns russia's nuclear agency sas there's very
7:30 pm
little chance of a nuclear accident the nuclear station is very solid and is not vulnerable in case a tsunami or another disaster happens tests have shown the chances of a gigantic asteroid destroying the earth in the future is twice as high as internal damage to this reactor but greenpeace is not convinced in april 2017 the environmental group protested against a project calling a child noble on ice referring to the nuclear disaster in the soviet union in 1986 . of if the fukushima nuclear station was damaged by a tsunami we can only guess what could happen in this case the place can be flown upside down it can be thrown onto the shore or get damaged in a recent nuclear accident in the north of russia which caused a spike in radiation has also raised concerns with several nuclear accidents happening in the past few months and the government that is by political about what exactly has happened people are growing increasingly suspicious that like in the
7:31 pm
time of chernobyl your forty's are trying to cover up incidents of leaks radiation even though the academic i don't know if off will travel only too far from populated areas its journey will be closely watched russia's plans to sell floating nuclear plants to other countries have also rung alarm bells according to greenpeace offshore reactors will be harder to monitor and it can fall into the wrong hands academic law not self will stay in effect in 2 got got for at least 10 years before going back to more months for maintenance and to dispose of its nuclear waste step fasten al-jazeera mosco full of school new law is the general manager of the international affairs at the balonne assigned ation that's an environmental long governmental organization he joins us from norway's capital oslo and also a very warm welcome to the program russia says that this is necessary to support
7:32 pm
its remote communities that what's your view. well we've been skeptical to this project from the very start just taking more than 10 years to finish to blown a nuclear and the radiation safety has always been top most priority so we know without saddam the nuclear state agency in russia has extended experience with ice breakers nuclear our speakers and you close submarines and the design of the going on also is based upon earlier designs weissberg years so they have experience in this field but we believe that any new technology or prototype asters this involves certain risks and with all nuclear installations you have risks related to the human factor i took rationing mistakes can be made and that should lead to. less than situations. we hear from the russian
7:33 pm
authorities that it's more likely to be hit by an asteroid than a disaster for one of these floating plants but as you say it's a new design and to some degree is unproven. indeed i mean we know the. result of mass taken precautions and they say that it's. invertible to tsunamis but we also know that this wessel is going to be sent to the arctic to the far north where changing weather conditions and to some degree severe medical missions can become a problem for any vessel and to transport it could become a problem for the tugboats are helping in the rest of the movie because it doesn't self self propelled and at its destination we know it's very far from merger.
