7:00 pm
2 countries one of that means that turkey is a player as much as other countries if not more and that's why we're seeing countries like italy and its leadership in the form of the prime minister just have to continue coming to and corrupt essentially to agree or at least to find some sort of synergy with turkey's plans for libya obviously that doesn't negate how significant russia is how significant the united arab emirates or egypt or other players in the region even france are with regards to libya but it does definitely on the line the role that turkey has carved for itself in this crisis ok and let you go for now thank you for that update from ankara let's cross over to moscow and bring in star vassar and she is joining us from there so so what more has the foreign minister had to say on how much progress has actually been made it was a very short statement to the rain by the foreign minister of russia and turkey and
7:01 pm
actually it was very clear that the turkish foreign minister. have to has not signed this agreement yet and that he hopes that it will sign it tomorrow morning on tuesday morning they have been talking about this draft agreement on the cease fire unconditional cease fire in libya and also said that in that draft agreement there is a suggestion for a military commission which will decide on the new contact lines between the 2 warring parties it's not clear at the moment where objects or has he teaches are to sign this deal so far so arrive on the contrary has according to the minister signed a deal already so it's been a very long and difficult meeting they say has been taking place for over 7 hours now and it hasn't had the result that they were hoping to get that both signatures would be under this cease fire agreement by the end of the day ok so what do we
7:02 pm
look ahead to step if anything at all. well they were hoping to have this ceasefire signed saw then they can take it to the next step which will be in berlin on the one thousands of january there's supposed to be this international conference on libya where also president obama has announced he will attend and it's also expected that put in the russian president will be there as well but the question now of course is when will this ceasefire agreement be signed. the turkish minister write that might be signed tomorrow morning on tuesday by year after so we haven't seen the end of these negotiations yet and of course we know it's been a very difficult situation and the situation on the ground is very fragile and hafter is maybe not willing to do to make so many compromises as he's trying as they have been trying to commit him to today so it is still some developments that
7:03 pm
we need to wait for until this international conference in berlin is safe to go ahead ok ok and thank you for that update from moscow. so just sue bring you up to speed with what's happened in the past couple of minutes or so we're hearing from moscow and in fact i'm going to bring in my one decide in just a moment to analyze all of this for us but just to let you know from moscow we have heard from the foreign minister of russia and he said that there has been progress on the libya talks about the war it's kind of a half that has delayed the signing of the cease fire but what we understand from the draft agreement is that i have to. have both said that they support an unconditional and open ended cease fire and also this draft agreement calls for the creation of a military commission to determine the contact line between the warring sides this is according to russian media let's now bring in. he's our senior political analyst
7:04 pm
so make sense of all of this for us. i guess are you surprised that have to has said i won't sign it yet i'm not surprised in fact it's very characteristic of. who by the way is suddenly that turkey's foreign minister is calling field marshal so the turks sponsors of the storks are already giving respects to what is considered by many as a warlord but be that as it may clearly he's not on the table of negotiations but also clear that he's continuing with the same structure an ism that we've seen him do since april since april while the government in tripoli has accepted if each and every cease fire it was half who rejected each and every cease fire one way or another and now we can see in that the pressure has built up on him whether it is by the russians and the turks or others like the european partners that he's still
7:05 pm
trying to wiggle his way out of it or trying to delay and so and so forth. apparently he says i need to sleep on it as it were that's the problem with the expression meaning i will we will hopefully sign on it tomorrow and why the delay well clearly there are some differences and disagreements notably about the mechanism for. implementing the cease fire and who would be on that military commissions and who would be the get on target. which parties clearly half there still has issues with turkey being the core sponsor of this thing and that's why apparently what we have heard the report from moscow is that the russians spoke to have to the russians and the turks spoke to surat rights but some russian have to did not speak so definitely turkey has been a player but more on the part of tripoli and clearly if this thing is signed to morrow as apparently the russians and the turks hope that it will be you think it
7:06 pm
will be i think it will be ok i want stand by for just a moment let's listen to what the foreign minister as a freshman turkey had to say just a moments ago. agreed. that the police. as well has played a role in these talks and the mr side of this because the parliament has also seen this document they have to add some items loaded to be signed and to be a positive decision that has been approved also with the attendance of the. russian sides in old to complete to such documents and agreements to mco think you very much. thank you very much for the russian side and thank you very much for the russian partners
7:07 pm
because they have given us a chance to meet you on the 8th of january we have just. we have started with our russian partners on the 8th of january to work on truce that has been. there now so we worked together on the document that will be also for the sake of. today we worked hard on this document and we put to the consideration of the compromises regarding the situation in libya called into. proposals made by mr after marshall after on mr sort of. this the document has been approved from our side we received a copy of this document as said by mr. marshall how after.
7:08 pm
some time until to morrow to. see the whole situation and probably he would sign these document to morrow morning and accordingly the proposals and the initiative made by the 2 presidents will lead to a result that misses the raj and the marshal after will be committed to this document the truce will continue the political process will continue also within the efforts of the international community and the united nations and we'll of course will join together with the russians the international efforts for this regard that's what we wanted to let you know after a long day of talks and negotiations thank you very much full bearing with us
7:09 pm
and we also thank mr. and mr mistry who signed on the prove this truce document and the at this new documents thank you very much for all of you and thank you for attending here. ok so that was what was said just saying a few moments ago by the turkish and the russian foreign minister is over in moscow and i was asking you before we went to tape about the possibility of signing this deal tomorrow you sound optimistic what are you basing that on what makes you say that have to is going to sign it considering that we've seen in the past the 2 men have come close to signing deals and they've fallen apart so yes that's why probably any optimism needs to be conditional on exactly the answer to your question my sense is that the russian person than the russian foreign minister had been making or plowing the field if you will before this meeting the calls made to
7:10 pm
various stakeholders including the these and others who have influence on huff that had to take place so the russians have been basically preparing. the wave for a successful negotiations in moscow otherwise they would probably wouldn't have invited them either and despite president putin's attempt at ambiguity just 2 days ago saying that the russians and russian meant that russian. mercenaries don't actually work for the russian government are not paid by the russian government everyone understands that this is not true that russia has been supporting half the through mercenaries and that when half that was invited to moscow in the middle of 2018 it was a clear sign that russia will be more than happy to give provide some support now that they are back in moscow to turkey with the aaa government the russian with after that there are basically 2 parties able to exercise some influence on the
7:11 pm
libyan players so in a sense if you will a lot of the preparations have been made so have to. could sign and still later on . you know walk back as it were because already as our reporter said from libya and that's. very interesting that already some of his own militias are making noises about not being consulted by after my sense is from a student of history is that he probably probably instigated some of them to have objections so that will strengthen his position in moscow and say look i cannot really force everyone to abide by ceasefire unless you give me this and this and this compromise so it's definitely have to it is being a good negotiator as it well as it were in moscow but also sort of raj is a good negotiator and clearly the sponsors they're one to have a success for this thing because without a success in moscow you cannot go to berlin which is what i wanted to ask you about
7:12 pm
so what happens in moscow and what we see to morrow will or will not pave the way for berlin it's a prerequisite for rights because it's supposed to be just to remind our viewers around the world this is a 3 phase process phase number one a cease fire this is happening in moscow phase number 2 is bring in all the stakeholders with influence in libya in berlin before the end of the month and try to just let me did by the way on syria geneive one geneva 2 when there were no syrians involved there were the stakeholders in syria the americans the russians the germans on so forth we can have something similar hopefully this one will not be like geneva one geneva to geneva $100.00 but it would be more successful trying to really after the the ceasefire is hopefully implemented then respected that there is a political process beginning in berlin by the end of month in order for a libyan a libyan authentic if as it were
7:13 pm
a process taking place between the parties in libya ok might want thank you very much so just a reminder what we've heard out of moscow and this is according to the russian foreign minister he's been saying that talks aimed at agreeing to an unconditional open ended cease fire in libya have failed to achieve a breakthrough but he says they've made good progress and a lover of has said the the. both sides to the conflict. the cease fire deal were prepared to sign the cease fire deal rather but the. for more time to consider the matter. we'll take a break but still ahead right here on al-jazeera there. was. anger and frustration over the ongoing economic crisis in haiti as a country pays tribute to those killed in a devastating earthquake 10 years ago. this is a very difficult journey for those who are trying really. where in the philippines
7:14 pm
as well that's where thousands are on the run from a volcanic eruption details coming up and. heller air quality in beijing is good middle of winter and is going to cause it's not true everywhere in northeastern china where there's big quiete but there's a bit of movement as you can see and some light clouds developing to bring rain eventually i think to shanghai but mostly it's a cloudy picture them back to your linen and unanimous with a range developing and the same sort of system is also growing some rain snow at height over honshu and maybe parts of north korea otherwise it's fabulous and weather for the next couple of days the coast of honshu developing a winter storm which is rolling out you know get the edge affects of rain in tokyo
7:15 pm
south and this rain is spreading out towards shanghai on wednesday was snow on the snow as nature in for example will han hong kong stays dry the heaviest rain further south apart from a few showers in the philippines is not even born yet but in the forecast though there will be repeated i think we'll see a risk not only in sumatra but also back in java remember the flooding in jakarta where the heavy showers are reappearing in southern jar. or west in java that includes jakarta and that will be of the next couple of days the same is true further east so you've got borneo sent away sea and almost all of the rest of indonesia. counting the cost while the u.s. spends. military bases across the world plus the reshaping of the meat industry has offered them swine flu decimate china's pork industry and the french tax that
7:16 pm
could escalate. counting the pulse on al-jazeera we understand the differences and similarities of cultures across the world so much of what we. are going to for that matter to you. hello again the top stories on al-jazeera russia and turkey are supporting talks in moscow towards a formal cease fire agreement between libya's warring sides of the world $25.00 star says he will decide by choose day whether to sign the deal. the leaders off turkey and italy say they'll attend the peace talks next week in berlin and russian
