. the mainly kurdish syrian democratic forces or s.d.f. defeated eisel here in 2015 with the help of u.s. late coalition forces. the turkish government describes the main fighting force of the s.d.f. as a terrorist organization linked to its outlawed kurdistan workers' party which is fought against the turkish government for decades. the s.d.f. control around 430 kilometers of syrian territory along the turkish border they have fought and worked alongside the u.s. troops for years they say u.s. presidents don't trumps decision to withdraw the nearly 1000 american soldiers is a stab in the back one that gives turkey an opportunity to attack that turkey at how the other side threats made by turkey to attack the area is not something new they have consistently done it for years we as syrian democratic forces take the matter into account and are fully prepared to fiercely respond to
5:03 pm
any imminent attack on syrian soil. turkey's government says it wants to create what it describes as a safety zone of around 30 kilometers in the site syria so around 2000000 of the 3600000 syrian refugees in turkey can return. what you're looking at there is a turkish artillery position now locals tell us that the army came a couple of weeks ago to set that position up meanwhile across the border s.t.'s forces are saying any military operation by turkey could risk the global fight against eisel there are thousands of eisel fighters in s.t.'s jails the us president donald trump says turkey must bear complete responsibility for any eisel fight is that a scape during a military operation turkey has so far no clear plan about how to deal with thousands of jailed eisel fighters on the syrian side of the border towns like to

5:05 pm
48 hours or so since he announced that he wanted to pull the united states troops out of syria and these tweets are sort of in the other example of that the president really defending his recalibration of policy arguing that turkey is an important trading partner to the united states he wants to kind of keep this relationship intact reminding the united states voters particularly that there is a collaboration that occurs with turkey with respect to the f. 35 fighter jet and as well he has really pushed back on the suggestion that the united states with a shift in policy is abandoning the kurdish fighters that help the united states fought alongside the united states in the defeat of i so he says that is not the case and that there will be weapons and finances that will continue to come from the united states to make sure that the kurds are protected now in the midst of all
5:06 pm
of this there has been some pushback from the u.k. leader with regard to the suggestion by donald trump that the united kingdom was in fact thrilled was the word he used with his shift in syria policy not the case according to prime minister boris johnson in fact his spokesperson is saying that the u.k. is deeply concerned about the turkish plans for some sort of military action into northern syria now we should point in all of this that the u.s. has been trying to kind of form a sort of a cold less position about what this syria policy looks like but it's been a challenge given the fact that the president continues to kind of shoot from the hip especially on twitter welcome to to monitor events for the through the day can be held at all correspond with a washington d.c. thank you. no the trooper ministration has barred some bastard to the european union from appearing before congress for shuttle testimony related to the ongoing
5:07 pm
impeachment inquiry. gordon and had voluntarily agreed to appear before 3 house committees to answer questions behind closed doors his attorney says he's obliged to comply with the u.s. state department's request not to testify text messages provided to congress last week reveal sunland as a central figure in the allegations that the us president tried to pressure ukraine to dig dirt on his democratic rival while house intelligence committee chairman adam schiff says he information and more personal messages from sagal and are being withheld by the state department we are also aware that the a master has text messages or e-mails on a personal device which have been provided to the state of our apartment although we have requested those from the baster and the state department is withholding those messages as well. those messages are also deeply relevant to this
5:08 pm
investigation and the impeachment inquiry holder will trump is defending the decision to block songlines appearance on twitter he wrote i would love to send ambassador sound law and a really good man and a great american to testify but unfortunately he would be testifying before a totally compromised kangaroo court where republicans rights have been taken away and truth facts are not allowed out for the public to see he went on to tweet saying that sunderland has defended the president in the past saying the president has been crystal clear no quid pro quo of any kind that says it all well money can is our correspondent force in washington d.c. to unpick exactly what's going on right now and one wonders why the ambassador's testimony is so very important. well it certainly is important because he said the link in that text conversation that occurred we heard about that conversation with
5:09 pm
ambassador could focus on giving evidence to the committee last week best of a subtle and had a integral part in that conversation clearly from the transcripts of the text messages that were released being very much a key figure in terms of attempting to put pressure on the government of ukraine now we heard there from the chair of the intelligence committee adam schiff insisting that what is happening now and what has been happening in terms of the administration's response to the ongoing investigation is in effect an op struction of congress which as he points out is a code equal branch of government to the executive making very clear that the next step for democrats for the investigators is to further investigate the degree to which the administration is obstructing the process the republicans for their side they also had some words of spawning they making very clear that they support the administration's decision in not allowing the ambassador before the committee
5:10 pm
saying that it is a kangaroo a body now that is precisely the same word that as you showed president trump used in his tweets earlier on in the day but an important point is the republicans are saying too they would be happy if the ambassador came before the committee providing that the full transcript of ambassador could focus the transcript was made public now that it may be in a way a poisoned chalice republican saying it shows completely that the president is not guilty of any political manipulation however that is something that will be for the committee and the public to decide like he looks like a very complicated chess game you sort of can't progress forward without moving sideways or diagonally to try and get to where you want to as far as this congress investigation is concerned but where do they go next. well what's got to be understood is that this is essentially in the end a constitutional issue what is going on here is
5:11 pm
a virtually unprecedented struggle between branches of government congress on the one hand the executive the administration on the other now the constitution makes very clear that these bodies are equal as chairmanship pointed out however the white house is contending that somehow the executive has greater power basically daring congress to take some form of punitive action within which the the constitution it does not have it does have the right though to argue obstruction of justice or for the moment like we'll leave it there of course continue to follow events through the day with you in washington thank you. yes we're heading to europe now where the u.k. may withhold security cooperation from the european union if it leaves the e.u. without an exit deal that's according to the spectator magazine citing british government sources the report comes on the morning when prime minister boris
5:12 pm
johnson spoke by phone with german chancellor angela merkel british media are reporting that merkel told johnson a break that deal is now we quote overwhelmingly unlikely lawrence lee has more from london. it's turned into a day which everybody has read as downing street since tension to try to collapse any remaining talks with the european union over boris johnson supposed compromise deal an overnight briefing to a political magazine from is his thoughts boris johnson's chief of staff basically said we're leaving either end of october or after a national election with or without a deal and probably with no deal if the european union make a stay in said this source will make life intolerable from inside the block and anyway said his source we expect the talks to collapse this week that prompted an absolutely furious response on twitter from donald tusk the head of the european council who accused boris johnson of being in what he describes as stupid blame
5:13 pm
game effectively saying that the failure to reach a deal was the european union's fault when plainly the european union see johnson really has never having had any intention to come to a deal at all because he's supposed compromise over northern ireland is so convoluted and complicated that it looked like it was designed to fail what appears to be the case now certainly speaking to opposition m.p.'s that they think boris johnson next week when parliament resumes after being suspended once again they think johnson will call a national election they think that he will say write the letter to the european union saying that he accepts the extension to brics it that will be enough for the opposition parties particularly jeremy commons labor party to say ok fine we've got the bracks extension we agree now she'll call for election and by the end of next week the account of this they are in the u.k. is in straight general election territory. flawlessly they're all still ahead here on al jazeera new zealand marks 250 years since a british ship sailed in but not everyone so welcoming. since the landing of. these
