turkey's 30 kilometer so-called safe zone russian military police will then start joint patrols with turkish forces along almost the entire north eastern syrian border working on is on the barrel moving threats posed by either terrorist organization this operation in syria guarantees syria's territorial integrity and political unity we never had eyes on the country's territory and sovereignty as turkey all steps we are taking in the field we have taken with sensitivity. both leaders agreed that the syrian constitutional committee should start its work on october 30 despite the current actions on the ground put in insists the courts should be part of the political solution for syria after a long discussion with president putin not only manage to become the main power broker in syria he also gain territory for his allies syrian president assad who

3:04 am
along the border obviously between turkey and syria it goes about 30 kilometers into syria the joint patrols themselves would be 10 kilometers deep on both sides of that area running between. and well here is some of inch of it now here at the turkey syria border with more under this agreement there are a number of for the 1st time that the russians have told the syrian government that they will be able to come back to their borders and carry our joint patrols for the 1st time they've told the turks that they will be able to carry out drug patrols on the border area with them for 10 kilometers deep inside. and again reiterating that they want the kurdish fighters to leave the that the fight is who are backed by the united states and they're seen as terrorists by by turkey so turkey insisting that it wants them to leave giving them another grace period after the 5 day period under the u.s. deal the sixty's and after that it will be carrying out these joint patrols it's
3:05 am
also very interesting that inside syria you saw president bashar al assad coming to words his forces a photo opportunity in the province and seeing that he does not trust his allies he does not trust turkey and then you've seen statements from the syrian democratic forces who have now found themselves as an ally the dish out of not trusting either of the parties. britain's parliament has rejected prime minister johnson's plan to fast track his brags that deal with the e.u. it means there is little chance of the u.k. actually leaving the block by october 31st or a challenge reports now from westminster. it is as m.p.'s point out unprecedented for parliament to pass such a large and important bill so quickly yet the governments wanted its withdrawal agreement bill through the commons before the end of the week mr speaker i was incredibly concerned when i was reminded by my wife earlier today that we spent my
3:06 am
wife and i spent longer choosing a school for then we have city bay this incredibly cool to hear on tuesday the legislation for leaving the european union was facing 2 hurdles would m.p.'s vote to give it more consideration and would they agree to the government's breakneck timetable the prime minister hopes he could focus minds with this warning if parliament refuses to allow the brics to happen and instead gets its way in decides to delay everything until january possibly longer is a great regret i would say that the book the bill will have to be pulled and we will have to go forward much as a writer may not like it will have to go forward to a general election 1st up would m.p.'s give his withdrawal agreement build their approval in principle so the guys have it the ayes have it m.p.'s gave it in north through to a 2nd reading
3:07 am
a crucial victory for the prime minister the 1st time in this tortured saga that parliament has given any breaks a deal any kind of approval but glory was short lived next up was the vote on the timetable. the guys to the right 308 it's no use to the last 322 so the notice having the nose have it once again m.p.'s have slammed the brakes on brakes it's tonight's the house has refused to be bounced into debating a hugely significant piece of legislation in just 2 days with barely any notice and an analysis of the. impact of this bill the prime minister is the also of his own misfortune jeremy corbin offered to work together to find a mutually agreeable timetable for us johnson responded by saying he was putting the bill on hold for now his do or die dreams of leaving the e.u. on october 31st look to have been dealt
3:08 am
a mortal blow so what i was next depends on the e.u. it's been considering that letter boris johnson was obliged by parliament to write last saturday requesting a breaks that extension if it grants a long 1 january or further then as we've just heard from the prime minister he is going to try pushing for a general election if we get something short all more flexible then that suggests that the e.u. like boris johnson just wants to get the brakes it done. al-jazeera london in the united states the top diplomat for ukraine has just wrapped up 10 hours of testimony in the impeachment inquiry into president donald trump democrats leading the deposition say william taylor has provided the clearest accounts that trump pressured ukraine to investigate a political rival in exchange for military aid alan fischer following this one from washington d.c. hi allan 10 hours of testimony that's quite extraordinary itself one of the
3:09 am
headlines to come out of it. well what we're hearing is that william taylor's testimony was detailed and credible according to democratic lawmakers what is more important perhaps is going to be this this is his opening statement is 15 pages long longer than you would expect normally in this sort of situation and this is bad news for donald trump essentially says although donald trump has used the phrase no quid pro quo william taylor suggests that absolutely was because donald trump was holding back aid from ukraine unless it announced publicly announced that it was going to carry out an investigation into joe biden and the 2016 election now that's important because of course donald trump's big phrase there's been no quid pro quo nope quid pro quo in the document donald trump again makes it clear there's no quid pro quo but he wants to put the ukrainian president in a public box by
3:10 am
a known saying this statement so that was very interesting what is also interesting as well is that william taylor says that when he arrived in ukraine and he was appointed as after donald trump got rid of the original ambassador my pompey or pointed him to that post he said that there was a separate line of communication between the united states side and the ukrainian figures and leading that 2nd drink strain was rudy giuliani who of course has no position in the u.s. government he is donald trump's personal lawyer and he the court into william taylor he said that what was clear is that they were not pursuing aims that would really benefit america's long term foreign policy goals in ukraine so this is really quite a damning document and i'm sure it is something that the democrats are going to dig deeper into because there are a lot of names mentioned here and that means a lot more subpoenas and what are the implications allan then for the president and
3:11 am
for the white house because i was discussing this with a guest earlier just keeps mounting up more and more people coming out with pretty much the same story. the problem he's got is that if you'd asked me 2 months ago what was the united states population thinking about impeachment of donald trump and i would have told you they're not quite there yet more and more information comes out and those numbers just climb no there are more than 50 percent of the american population who believe that don't not only should be impeached but should removed from office know at the white house is obviously fighting a defensive motion we've seen managed to mix its message up over the last few days with mick mulvaney the acting chief of staff 1st of all saying there was there was a quid pro quo of course there was get over it and then the deal later realizing it and saying actually there was no quid pro quo i feel a statement from the white house they're saying president trump has done nothing
3:12 am
wrong this is a quote the smear campaign from far left lawmakers is important to point william taylor is a career diplomat someone who is served under both democratic and republican administrations and was appointed as an ambassador to ukraine by george w. bush this statement continues there was no quid pro quo today was just more triple headers here see and selective leaks from democratic politically motivated closed door secretive hearings again it's important to point out that's how this works the house holds its hearings in private and then decides whether it's gather the evidence if there's enough evidence there for an impeachment inquiry if it votes for that it then goes to trial in the senate this is how this is absolutely meant to work so this is not been a good day for donald trump but you know thinking back over the last week i can't think of many good days for him quiet adventure joining us from washington thank you in the news the heads of lebanon's government promises reforms to ease the

3:17 am
today. a local mall as you can see it is quiet in the streets of the chilean capital we're now about an hour into the curfew and we've seen little more than a few a small trickle of people trying to make their way back home to avoid getting detained we should mention that there have been over 1000 detentions already taking place since the since you know unrest began to take place in the country once again another eventful day in terms of demonstrations in terms of clashes with police thousands of people marching in a part of town it known as bless athalie it's another iconic part of the city where political movements have traditionally taken place in the past again we saw police using tear gas using smoke bombs using water cannons to disperse the crowd which again has been one of the biggest sources of anger for demonstrators who are for the most part demonstrating peacefully on the streets of the chilean capital to be met with what they're describing as a heavy handed crackdown against peaceful protests here in she live there was a
3:18 am
a meeting with the pope between the president and several members of all political parties regional leaders hoping to find a solution to the crisis but there is momentum here those momentum behind these protests which which seems as though they're actually intensifying things don't seem to be calming down so there is no sense of when exactly things are going to kind of return to normal here in the chilean capital kabul so these protests are being widely supported across well yes this is not isolated here in the city and even though things look quiet here there are pockets of tension across the city we mentioned that there's a lot of arrests there's a lot of people that are defying the curfew which is now in its 4th night but i want to give you a better sense of what we saw over the course of the day take a look. another day of protests have paralyzed much of downtown something. tensions in the city remain high as thousands of demonstrators continue to flood
3:19 am
the streets. is a professional driver he hasn't participated in the protests but he shares the prescriptions of demonstrators who are angry over worsening inequality in the country. i have my own vehicle and i work with dignity and abide by the law but what has that meant for me it's meant throwing my money away in taxes if i don't pay my share i could lose my house but not that big businessman they don't pay and then they get bailed out what about me what do i get for being a justice in fulfills his obligations what do i get. since the weekend protests have continued to intensify every day it seems more sectors of society are joining in the demonstrations. on tuesday chilean president. met with regional leaders from all political parties in an effort to restore calm finding a solution out of the crisis however is proving to be difficult as the demonstrations aren't led by political opposition. social analysts like manuel got
3:20 am
it don't believe the unrest is part of a growing movement of young people who he says are rejecting the very notion of political system. there is a commonality among them straight to the theme of calling for equality and denouncing abuse but also the possibility of a better future the perspective people have to do things are bad now but the future will be even worse for those children. apart from anger over a growing inequality protesters have also denounced a heavy handed crackdown by police and armed forces against peaceful protesters a state of emergency and a military enforced curfew remains in effect here in the chilean capital for the 4th day in a row that means thousands of the city's residents are forced to return to their homes every day before sunset or run the risk of being arrested for a curfew violation 0 no 7 not nearly 1700 people have been arrested since the start
3:21 am
of the crisis with thousands of protesters continuing to defy the curfew and declaring a national strike for the coming days that number is sure to rise when made up of the. thousands of protesters in lebanon have hit the streets for a 6th consecutive day despite emergency reforms announced by the prime minister these demonstrations began last week over the government's plan to impose new taxes and have since widened into calls for the entire political class to step down stephanie decker reporting for us from northern lebanon tripoli. day 6 and many roadblocks remain in place banks and schools are closed across lebanon many bank machines don't have cash the prime minister's proposals for forms haven't changed the situation on the ground and those are the shitter people are going into the streets for their future and the future of their children in reality the political class that we have has less than nothing before this uprising if we can call it that the government tried to pick the pocket of every poor person until they were
3:22 am
left with nothing prime minister sad how to be has met ambassadors of various countries including the u.s. and russia as well as the arab league they welcomed the reforms but also urged him to address the demands of the people but what these people who remain on the streets really want is for the government to go and adviser to the prime minister had this to say is that a chance or a possibility for a cabinet reshuffle or something like this i think this will be determined in the coming few days and it is one of the options being put on the table we drove up from beirut to the northern city of tripoli roadblocks here too on the main highway when we got to tripoli the square was starting to fill up many of those graduates everyone is unemployed but people who have read this area they're living in very horrible of institutions to see how we live in their houses. to understand
3:23 am
