8:02 pm
in yours but when we think about it and it's not just about money. we have to be respectful because all soldiers so full burden we share so for us coffee is also all those things. and i do believe that in such circumstances we do the. less we have to pay for quality security for. the president i i think you know that we need more flexibility and i think we both agree on that so we can use it for other things time chose. you know what specific targeting a lot of people say it was better to look at originally in the soviet union now russia but we also have other things to look at whether it's the radical islamic terrorist over there is the tremendous growth of china. let's bring in our diplomatic editor jane spaces in london covering the summit for inside james has always been talk about nato being in crisis certainly the divisions on the alliance
8:03 pm
in full display during that news conference between. very openly on display between these 2 leaders who both actually have been very critical of nato remember president trump some time ago said nato was obsolete president mackerel there defending his comments about nato being brain dead losing its sense of purpose and that was a comment that trump earlier on when he was with nato secretary general said was not stay disrespectful to the other members of nato setting a tone i think for a pretty uncomfortable meeting between these 2 leaders and he got even more uncomfortable when the issue of foreign fighters came up though particularly those from european nations including france that had been fighting for isola now are prisoners in syria i mean it is the number one problem in armor for a fight this is the fight for it. and you have more more fighters use is the
8:04 pm
reason. this is what is a great politician because i was one of the greatest non-answers over. ok because sometimes there are there you can have some television from the east side i don't think frankly from the press you see this is your government to be i'm sorry here we have more people but you don't get really because he is the number one. know to be on these groups this is why we started to discuss the past oh i believe it's true but i think any of the b.b.c. do the. moves. and james on the sidelines of this nato summit in london syria also on the agenda of talks between turkey's president at 0 on and the french german and british leaders turkey as you know is
8:05 pm
facing criticism over its military operation into syria targeting kurdish on gould's and watto on is seeking european bought backing for his plan to repatriate millions of syrian refugees we heard the german chancellor a short while ago james speak about what they talked about at that meeting what exactly is at stake when it comes to syria. well it's very odd to have a nato meeting like this where not only do you have an old man or woman now you've got rouse going on between various of these leaders on different subjects and on that serious subject it's very much turkey against the rest because the other nations do not share turkey's vision of syria they see turkey which is getting quite close to russia with regard to its syria policy and they are not at all comfortable with that turkish incursion in northern syria so real difficulties
8:06 pm
there the meeting in downing street i believe also covered some other issues that were relevant to turkey. one for example we believe that's being dissuades being discussed there is libya and the efforts to try and get peace talks going the supposed to take place in berlin but there are other differences to chancellor merkel was there with president micro one of the untold stories of this summit is how bad relations are between those 2 the french german relations not going a tall well at the moment competition between those countries countries different visions of european defense and their role in the you a very senior political figure said the media really hasn't got how bad this is and suggested to me that one of the reasons for this is that the u.k. whenever there's rivalry between france and germany normally plays a counterweight role and that of course is not happening because the brics it i
8:07 pm
thank you very much for that james james bays our diplomatic editor live for us in london let's show you some live pictures now from buckingham palace where world leaders have begun to arrive for a nato reception house said by the queen we've seen a number of invesco and in the last few minutes again a reception hall said by the queen for leaders on this nato summit. in london now president us neither is in london in the middle of the next in campaign there of course an opposition candidate attacking britain's prime minister for his close relationship with the us president let's bring in a dame baba now who is at a protest in london stratigraphic square against the u.s. president 19 tell us about what's been happening and who's at this protest. will fully here it's a fog a square there have been several 100 people representing a whole range of campaign issues that you might expect a visit by the u.s. president to attract there have been and see nato protesters criticizing what they
8:08 pm
see as the u.s. is a nuclear arms race after president trump pulled the u.s. out of an important known for liberation treaty we've got people here who are worried about the perceived racism of the u.s. president we've got people here who are talking about what might happen to food standards in the u.k. after practice it whether they would have to be aligned with u.s. standards and so on but the protests which is getting bigger and include some people who've already arrived down at buckingham palace where the nato leaders are going to be heading the protests is being headed by people who work for the public health system here known as the n.h.s. that's crucial because it is now the number one issue that people identify as swinging. affecting their vote in the upcoming election the number one issue ahead of breaks it now it's seen as a national treasure of the n.h.s. and those n.h.s.
8:09 pm
employees protesting a bring a message warning good faith thing but in a brics it scenario under a boris johnson government there will be pressure from the u.s. under donald trump to give u.s. firms greater access to the public health system and to allow. them. drugs companies to charge more no further than that some people in boris johnson don't have in the past advocated for the privatization of hospitals he says that's nothing to do with their policy he says rest assured that is not the n.h.s. is not for sale the leader of the labor party jeremy corbyn has been making use of that phrase in his campaigning on tuesday the leader of the liberal democrats suggested that boris johnson and president trump have been trying to talk to each other about how to deal with this visit to to avoid any damage to the election campaign president chomps said he won't be getting involved in the same sentence
8:10 pm
indoors for his johnson is very capable he says he wouldn't take the n.h.s. would be interested in it in it if the u.k. handed it to the u.s. on a silver platter that's in direct contrast to comments you made just a few months ago on his last visit to the u.k. there is a lot of skepticism here amongst the public and that's why the those parties who want to topple boris johnson are trying to press that button and make the most of this friendship between boris johnson and donald trump thank you for that live for us in london let's turn to other world news now any rainy and say television has a knowledge for the 1st time that people had described as riotous was shot and killed during recent protests thousands of people joined demonstrations angry over an increase in petrol prices which are set by the government human rights groups say as many as $200.00 people were killed in iraq as government though has rejected that figure putting the death toll at 13 beg has more on tehran's acknowledgement

8:20 pm
well finally this was the chance for qatar to respond to the statements made by the blockading nations on the opening session yesterday monday where they try to justify why they believe the international court of justice should intervene after the international council or international civil aviation organization had. decided in favor of qatar saying that the blockade in countries should cease they are prevention of qatari errors aircraft from flying over there are space and landing gear in there are airports through its counsel today said that what was taking place was not just a breach of international law but dismissed the statements made by egypt saudi arabia the united arab emirates on behaving as simply a smokescreen to justify their illegal action for more on this i'm joined by professor william we're start from the hague school of law what do you make of this
8:21 pm
unprecedented case and what we've heard from both sides in their initial hearings over the past 48 hours then did it is such an unusual case actually this idea of an appeal from one international organization to another one this is only happened one time in dark history of this course of this court so this is really unusual the civil international civil aviation organization is only dealt with these types of questions a few times and has never reached an actual decision again very unusual then we listen to the arguments that we have today really technical stuff jurisdiction is this body really judicial rather negotiations all this it sounds incredibly dry but has such huge importance for the outcome whether or not this other organization the international civil aviation organization whether it can open up the airways again so interesting case with massive import you're talking about procedure and technicalities but in essence this is a political case the 4 countries decided to take these measures to try and in force
8:22 pm
their policies now what's strange is that we're seeing a bit of. mixed messages coming out so on the one hand the basis of the blockade in countries coming to the i.c.j. is they're saying that which is the international organization was politicizing gets body by taking this decision but at the same time they're actually saying that the reason why they took these decisions was for political reasons how is this going to play out in terms of the decision that's being made and what can we expect the judges to come out with after the hearings finished on friday well you know every decision that comes before the court for a resolution everyone has political sides to it this one is intensely political of course but the court is not a stranger to that and the court has stepped into the separation wall between israel palestine they've dealt with posts of oh they're dealing with russia in crimea they're going to deal with genocide next week so they're very accustomed to dealing with these highly political context the key for them though is to look over
8:23 pm
the whole terrain and to set aside the politics and say do we see a legal issue if we see that we can speak on that and we can set aside all the politics thank you very much professor william as you hear. it is a complex case at least in the sense of its nature for countries blocking off airspace essentially imposing collective punishment at least on the civil side of things but for political reasons it's something that's taken a very long time to reach through the courts behind me here and it's likely to drag on for a few more weeks if not months before we get a final decision. at the hague thank you very much for that. now with winter in full force the council of europe's human rights chief says a makeshift refugee camp in bosnia must be shut down hundreds of people are living in miserable conditions in the camp on top of an old landfill site there sheltering
