stake as france for pesthole staff and leaders grappling with a dramatic surge in violence in the sa each of. the air. the f.a.q. very much for joining us the leaders of libya's warring sides have arrived in russia's capital for talks after a cease fire came into force there's no suggestion yet that warlords heidi for halftime the prime minister of the u.n. recognize government will meet with the latest development is raising hopes of a path to ending years of civil conflicts international diplomatic efforts to end the fighting have stepped up in recent weeks a truce brokered by turkey and russia came into force on sunday morning turkey's foreign minister as well as the defense minister have also arrived in moscow for talks with their russian counterparts that discussions are expected to include the libyans turkey and russia support over. posing sides in the conflict now libya has
12:02 pm
been torn apart by fighting since long time bowler moammar gadhafi was overthrown in 20 levon it's divided between militia groups which mostly back to rival governments the u.n. recognize administration led by prime minister fayyad is based in tripoli it's supported by turkey and most western nations including its only which is worried the fighting near tripoli will force more people to cross the mediterranean in the east there is the 2 broke base governments the center of power for warlords and for half tar he is backed by egypt saudi arabia russia and the united arab emirates france is also accused of providing military support to his forces in a moment i'll be speaking to jamal a child who is in turkey's capital ankara but 1st we go to our correspondent in moscow set osten so step tell us about who is in moscow and how expecting things to play out since monday. well the ministry
12:03 pm
of foreign affairs spokeswoman has now confirmed on facebook they're both leaders are actually inside the foreign ministries building saraj arrived earlier this morning and have there was already here since last night and they will join as she writes the meeting that's ongoing now between the ministers of foreign affairs and the friends of russia and turkey so there is this suggestion that they will all be in the same room together soon we have to wait and see what is the aim of this meeting is that there will be signatures put under this cease fire agreement which was brokered between russia and turkey in istanbul last week and it's also alleged that egypt and the united arab emirates will have delegates to witness this cease fire agreement the ministry has sad that there will be a long meeting so we don't expect anything soon but the talks are ongoing now and interestingly of course that this peace deal this this power broker agreement is
12:04 pm
done by turkey and russia and has come across very quickly now in the last couple of days talk to us more step about the role of russia in libya and the significance of russian mediation in this conflict why russia is so keen to see an end to the war in libya. well it's interesting how quickly russia and president putin has managed to put himself in the position of a power broker in libya because we have to remember russia has been backing after the warlord since 2016 quietly some libyan money has been printed here in moscow for his informal government in the east of libya and also some logistical support was given but only since september russian mercenaries arrived more in more numbers in the libya and actually have contributed to the fight more weapons have been delivered and that actually has changed the power balance in libya to the extent
12:05 pm
that now turkey which is backing the u.n. backed government and russia are now become the main power brokers and russia has always supported tough start with the idea that he is a strong man who can actually oppose. stream ism but also have kept open the communication with with the u.n. backed government it's not only for putting to be disputes mediator but they're also of course economic interest at stake and they're supposed to be some kind of deals between turkey and russia about or oil fields in libya as well thank you very much for that steadfast in life forests in moscow let's go to jamal and shiela who's in ankara turkey for us as we said libya's conflict has drawn conflicting involvement from foreign powers not just the russians and the turks but also other countries italy france and to a lesser extent the americans what's in it for turkey and how soon could we see a political settlement to this conflict. well there's a lot of stake here for turkey from different perspectives in terms of the fact
12:06 pm
that both libya and turkey share maritime borders in the mediterranean sea they have now several bilateral agreements that they have signed between the 2 governments in recent months the mutual defense agreement as well as one looking at the demarcation of those borders in the mediterranean sea to allow for joint. extraction of natural resources from there and if we continue looking at strategically across the mediterranean sea it from about the flow of a lot of. refugees who would be leaving north africa coming towards europe there is a large part that turkey is concerned with or that would implicate turkey as well so there is a lot as far as the turks are concerned but also beyond that when you look at turkey's own strategic foreign policy objectives in terms of trying to find some sort of balance of power within the wider middle east and north africa region because prior to turkey's maybe coming to the forefront of the.
12:07 pm
the situation in libya you don't really have that power balance you had people who were supporting have namely the united arab emirates and egypt and others who believe that there needed to be a reversal of the crock from the arab spring of 2011 and the reinstatement of these strong men as that was talking about military individuals who essentially would continue the status quo votes or to consecrate dreams in the in the arab world whereas turkey maybe says it pushes a belief that there needs to be more poor lism in societies than in the political discourse and therefore it was trying to reach that power balance but what's significant here is that turkey in this instance doesn't seem to be working alone we have the italian prime minister now coming to anchor in the next couple hours to meet with the president so decepticons he will be meeting with to discuss obviously their views on how to move forward. this is fire significant as it may be will also
12:08 pm
be accompanied with a lot of caution because whilst there will be an agreement to stop the fighting there isn't an agreement to give up arms and the fact that you would have a country the size of libya with a history of libya as well as obviously the other intricate details that form the social construct of libyan terms of tribalism and so forth that there would be truce or protests entities that have their own militia the have their own weapons or have their own ability to print currencies all of that is going to make it very difficult to see how a ceasefire could hold for a very long time without there being a longer term agreement to either form some sort of national unity government or at least to try and start the arming or rather on arming some of these on groups thank you for that in ankara turkey force there's been a 2nd day of protests in iran after the government admitted its military mistakenly shot down a ukrainian airliner last week killing 176 people demonstrators have been defying

12:25 pm
rescue and relief efforts the german company siemens says it will honor a deal to provide infrastructure for a coal mine in australia that's despite growing pressure from environmental groups which link carbon emissions to the bush lies devastating launch costs of the country have been protests in australia and other countries since the firm signed the deal in december but siemens boss says there is no legally and economically responsible way out of the agreement to supply rail infrastructure to the adani mine david is c.e.o. of greenpeace australia pacific he says this contradicts siemens claim that it supports the paris climate agreements. siemens has given itself an enormous keek in the guts today it has made a disastrous decision for its own reputation and its hollow commitment to the paris agreement goes to the heart of that the development of the adani coal mine is
12:26 pm
completely inconsistent in spirit with the paris agreement so big is belief that siemens can actually think it is committed to paris while it is supporting the construction of these coal mine the vast majority of australians are against the adani mine going ahead and particularly at the moment in the context where as you say a stranger is being ravaged by terrible unprecedented fires which are themselves being made worse and generated by global warming which the scientists are being very very clear. about and that is driven in turn by coal above all else so for siemens to be supporting the construction of these adani mine at the same time as a strategy is literally on fire is simply appalling corporate practice. now people in haiti have paid to the more than 300000 people who were killed in the
12:27 pm
devastating earthquake 10 years ago. force in the capital port au prince which is still struggling to recover. another year to remember the worst tragedy this country has seen in recent history. 10 years ago a $7.00 earthquake devastated haiti and added to the in demick troubles that already affect the population here precedential in and maurice pay tribute to those who died in a mass grave in san krzysztof i but the ceremony did not last long. that whatever were the precedent had to be rushed out when protesters arrived to the scene so far simpler than no you know i'm here to put flowers for the victims of the earthquake the president shouldn't be here. or our freedom or death they chanted at the burial site protests have been ongoing this past few months many are
12:28 pm
angry at the ongoing economic crisis corruption and what they say is the failure of the reckon struction process. but the president told al-jazeera he's also unhappy about the way aid was handled even though he has been in office for almost 3 years so it is a generality it was a reality they stubbles destructor that was intended to spend the aid money and now inherit the problems that we are dealing with today now it is a must that everyone is able to understand that there has been mistakes and altogether we need to correct these mistakes. but in spite of the general disappointment people like me weekly say he just wants to remember those who died and pay tribute to them. to the people today means a lot to me i lost family and friends and i won't ever forget the day that their experience the worst of the worst but we had a lot of solidarity and we are still here surviving food and housing. i have always been an issue in haiti but since the earthquake the situation became even worse
12:29 pm
this neighborhood is known as. it was completely destroyed by the earthquake most of the building that you can see here where rubble fell those people died on january 12th 2010 and as you can see some of that have been rebuilt with the help of the united nations and other aid of i think many of the people we have spoken to say that much more needs to be done and then just outside of port au prince has become the emblem of what went wrong with a record struction process hundreds of thousands who lost their homes continue to live in dire conditions mike schuler says the way the system was set up was wrong in its system treated people like victims but children need to be taught how to wash their hands for example. their their their priority needs housing jobs education were not met where they were given with soap. and other things that are
12:30 pm
that are not needed haiti is the poorest country in the western hemisphere and this year the situation is likely to get even worse the suffering caused by the earthquake is ongoing and has only served to highlight how the haitian government and the international aid system have failed. port au prince. again i'm fully battle with the headlines on al-jazeera the leaders of libya's warring sides have arrived in moscow for talks after a cease fire brokered by russia and turkey came into effect over the weekend but it's not yet known whether prime minister and warlord $24.00 have to will meet face to face turkey's foreign minister. and defense minister who have also arrived in moscow for talks with their russian. counterparts turkey and russia's support of
