1:07 pm
why do you think things are not changing in the u.s. with regard to believe shootings. because you can change things overnight in a culture where are you have had fear you have had suspicion and you have had let us be honest racism for decades and so even as we're trying to get to grips with what happened with george floyd 3 months ago and amidst these important issues being raised by the anti-racism marches the black flies matter marches there will be other incidents other encounters now it appears that in the latest in the case of jacob lloyd can connection with johnson you have an on armed black man shot 7 times that close friends by officers simply hours after trying to mediate a domestic dispute he was getting back into his car with his 3 young sons inside that will have to be investigated but while that's being investigated people will be angry people will be frustrated and even though it should be emphasized that the
1:08 pm
leaders of the black clouds matter marches are denouncing violence you will have some that will take it out on the community but we need to also add something else to watch out for and that is that there are those who are right wing protesters right wing militia who will try to strike violence as well and in the instance which has marked last night's protest which is the killing of 2 people unwilling to hear a 3rd the suspicion and i must emphasize suspicion not proof is that members of the militia fired into one of these marches which just skillets the violence further everyone needs to take a step back that's what jacob like family said yesterday but the issue the fundamental issue which is violence against an armed people especially african-americans that cannot be dismissed lightly well let's turn see that fundamental issue. are you saying that the police in america are racists because in order to begin to tackle this problem we need to find out what the problem is and who is to blame. well there you have to unpack that and i wish we had
1:09 pm
a full hour but as the grandson of a long time serving place officer who served with 36 years what i have to say is from experience and from studying this is that when you have a culture which has often been racially segregated when you have a culture like the one i grew up with in the american south where you don't interact if you have police who are largely white they may start from a basis of suspicion and that that african-american that white american may be a threat to them and when you have the prevalence of guns and such large numbers on the streets that suspicion can escalate very quickly to violence now beyond that i think you have a structural issue and that is when you do have police violence when you do have on armed black americans being killed is there an attempt to cover this up and attempt to explain it away and attempt to shout law and order as for example the man in the white house is doing right now when you have that attempt to cover it up that is something which is structural racism. ok scott i'm afraid we don't have the full
1:10 pm
hour to it's a go into more detail on that but thank you so much for helping us see scratched the surface of this problem that scott lucas there joining us from birmingham in the u.k. . well let says stay in the u.s. where the american president donald trump 1st lady melania and the secretary of state might bump a were all speakers on the republican national convention they're breaking with decades of precedence the 1st lady spoke from the white house rules garden well mike pompeo recorded his address while on a diplomatic mission of white house correspondent kimberly hall kit's has more. explore together. america it was a night billed as a tribute to the great american story and the people empowered to succeed by

a 350 from the middle east who paid for the rights to live and work in europe separate davis reports. a meeting of presidents to discuss greater links between cyprus and china put away from the public glare hundreds of chinese have quietly paid for a personal connection aboard cypriot citizenship a few likely a criminals he sanctioned by the us the laundering stolen cryptocurrency others like tanya politically connected he's boss of a state owned energy company. the chinese presence is increasingly visible in cyprus 2 and a half $1000000.00 for citizenship and a passport which can be invested in a luxury home is a modest price for china's super rich young man and spend both have separate passports through her family real estate company country garden she's worth an
1:16 pm
estimated $27000000000.00 and is often called asia's richest woman but paying for the passport and moving assets to the island isn't straightforward because china has strong currency controls strictly speaking it's all illegal very often they use hong kong as a way for getting their money out of china and there are many who egypt ways for doing so and they sometimes also used in macau as another way all getting money out of china another category in the cyprus papers includes those we are not naming for their own safety that applies to a woman whose relative was secretly abducted from long kong by chinese security agents and several names from saudi arabia applications for cypriot passports from the kingdom have increased since the rise of crown prince mohammed bin salmond like

1:18 pm
cypriot minister beach area what we've had up to now is a reaction that basically says well we've made lots of changes over the years so what's the problem the problem according to the critics is that these schemes inherently attract the criminal and the corrupt and want to hide where they where their money is and basically using cyprus as a back door because the supreme court makes the mini e.u. citizen so soakers has undoubtedly tightened some of the regulations that were in silence that criticism that actually these schemes need to end completely and separate for many people in the reports that we have just a separate passport represents something of a safety net it's not worth noting that safety that's not available to those who are risking their lives trying to cross the mediterranean and given that these
1:19 pm
cypriot government appears to be selling access to the e.u. what does the e.u. have to say about all of this. well just a few minutes ago we finished an interview with the justice commissioner and i think he's been stronger than he has been before and what he said to me was that he is now open for a legal solution to end to these but the european parliament the european commission have got the power to bring in a law or start something called infringement procedure that could be backed up by the european court of justice and it could say to cyprus and rules a modern bulgaria you run these schemes these schemes need to end these are a security risk to europe these increase the risk of money laundering and crying so we are now passing a law to end these schemes because what has been clear is that left to their own devices these schemes are huge moneymaker and so cyprus is not going to end it
1:20 pm
itself ok deborah davis there joining us live from london thank you very much and seeds and be sure to say whether on al-jazeera will be airing the 5th arts of our exclusive reports on the cyprus papers after a week of revelations about the serious flaws uncovered in these artists investment scheme for passports we will bring you that exclusive interview with the european union's commissioner for justice didier injures who will react to our findings thursday from 10 g.m.t. right here on al-jazeera. the antigovernment protesters are expected to rally later in bella russa after to see prominent opposition leaders were jailed a rival demonstration is also due to be held in supports of president alexander lukashenko he is resisting calls the step down after a disputed election but asked that fasten reports now from minsk his opponents are
1:21 pm
keeping up the pressure on the. solera to for those punished protesting against the. musicians have gathered at the theater in minutes every day so it's iraq the effect for supporting the protests. well more culture minister powerful up to scratch faces a criminal investigation insists this missile hits become one of the key members of the opposition council performance as a council and actors of all resigned in support of him including garbos who has been a popular performer for decades but. there are a lot of resignation letters at the moment we are lucky we are united and stick together your thirty's don't know what to do with us we don't know what will happen to us next. and if i and the actors openly displayed the opposition flag after police took it down to the us and you want to see where it's impossible
1:22 pm
to work under such a regime we're heavily censored in our salary is miserable and we cannot express our opinion as a person of culture under this regime our profession makes no sense the actors joined a rally at the ministry of education with teachers also gathered to protest against lugar shankar's this beautiful reelection earlier this month he's announced that all teachers who don't share his ideology will be sacked. i've been working at the school for 35 years i've come here to declare that teaches don't agree they are very brave people because it is scary for dismissed teachers there are plans to establish private schools so they can take children and still earn money thanks while hundreds of teachers stage a peaceful rally police vehicles arrive some protesters carry in children shout we are not here. i was going to thank you and in fact there is
1:23 pm
a good still to this broadcast to say. thanks for the story in spite of crisscrossed by the fact that we. made teachers taking to the street it seems the president is increasingly alienating professionals who are the pillars of his government for fashion also have become more and more united in their fight against him and his 26 years in power step fasten al-jazeera. let's get more now from our european broadcast center in the barber joins us live from london you have more protests planned in belarus today what should we be looking out for. well i think we should be looking out for how the authorities respond because for the last week or so generally they've been taking a more relaxed approach than some people predicted on sunday though there were 100000 people according to the opposition on the streets in minsk the capital on
1:24 pm
tuesday according to write scripts dozens of peaceful protesters calling who are opposing president alexander lukashenko were arrested and in fact the interior ministry abetter us confirms they say police detained 51 people for what they call administrative violations after unsanctioned rallies where of course all of these rallies are unsanctioned but you heard about the protesters saying we are not scared perhaps the or thirty's sensing that defiance are now cracking down harder not just on the protesters but on that national coordination council which the or for it is accused of trying to seize power now later on wednesday one of the council's a well known members spent learn alec's of each now she won the nobel prize in literature in 2015 she will be questioned as part of this investigation into the council as we heard 2 members of the council were jailed on tuesday for 10 days and
1:25 pm
there are ongoing prosecutions over the counter and then the other pillar that step was mentioning the industrial sector in recent days of going after strikers warning them not to protest in fact they've arrested a. tractor factory leader surrogate dyleski who is a well known figure in this opposition movement so it's not clear exactly where the opposition goes next in the absence of dialogue now the european union and outside forces have been calling on russia to push dialogue between the government and the council the answer from moscow so far is it's not for anyone outside the country to determine who will talk to the government they are very skeptical about the idea of this council ok now. joining us live from london with the very latest thank you.
1:26 pm
well staying in europe the e.u. has defense ministers are meeting in berlin and they've got plenty to discuss they're focusing on what's known as the strategic compass a framework for responding to threats and challenges as a bloc but the process in belarus and tensions between turkey and greece over gas exploration will likely also be on the agenda as cross live there to see berlin where dominic cain is standing by for us don't make well sort of role can the e.u. play in these various conflicts given its no military of its own. well the strategic compass is clearly pointing to the south east of europe right now because that is where you have tension building up between the turkish government and the greek government certainly that is the feeling here in berlin the interesting point to make here is of course the e.u. does not have on its and its in its own way
1:27 pm
a military role the military role in europe the guarantee of security in europe has traditionally come from nato now that's important the nato secretary general yes back is here in berlin this week here today and he will be here for the next couple of days because tomorrow and the day after there will be the e.u. foreign ministers will be meeting in berlin but the nato angle is important because remember that greece and turkey are both nato members but of course turkey is not an e.u. member. although they're not at this meeting the comments being made the view coming from the government of president richard type to one is definitely going to be there because he has been speaking about what he considers to be the turkish government's right to its its own rights over the territories of the black sea the mediterranean sea and all everything that flows from that and that's important because the greeks and the turkish government disagree about the petrochemical
1:28 pm
finds that have been made in the eastern mediterranean around cyprus we know right now the french the italians the greeks in the cypriots have a military exercise underway in the eastern mediterranean so lots of tension right now between these 2 nato countries but only one of them has representation at this meeting that's taking place in berlin this taking place here of course because the german government currently holds the 6 month rotating presidency of the european union ok dominic kagan they're bringing us up to date from berlin thank you very much and dates. well it stay with those tensions turkey says its opens its dialogue with greece over the species oil and gas resources in the mediterranean but without its preconditions the greaser hearing has also signaled that it's ready for talks the 2 sides blame each other for the dispute despite to plastic efforts by the e.u. to find a resolution simcoe syria lou reports now from istanbul from turkish and greek
1:29 pm
warships on alert and tensions are high as the 2 countries have been locked in a dispute for weeks over matter tembo andries and offshore rights. germany for its part is trying to mediate a dispute between the neighbors and nato a life that's foreign minister hike of last conducting shuttle diplomacy between athens and ancora earlier on to say most warned of a passable catus for a fender region or severe it's all over the us what we originally need are visible steps towards the escalation and a genuine readiness for dialogue i have been hearing from all sides that there is a willingness for dialogue and so we believe holding talks is achievable in the end a binding and peaceful solution to the eastern mediterranean dispute will only be possible if there are direct talks between greece and turkey. turkey calls greece a spoilt child who has and conditional support from the e.u. that's why and honestly you medication is necessary for diallo you are the hope
1:30 pm
that only if you make statements such as we would have window rights we carry our rules we do not say we will make a mistake but we will do whatever is necessary without hesitation therefore do not get ignored by those countries act with common sense tension between the 2 neighbors speak when the turkish research vessel that they or trace began carrying out suspect research in the eastern mediterranean the ship is being escorted by warships between crate and cyprus where say is hoping for a diplomatic solution but stands ready militarily. so greece will defend in the name of law its sovereignty and its sovereign rights greece will defend its national and european borders the sovereignty and sovereign rights of europe it does not have any other choice but to do certain. turkey's foreign minister sat athens provocator steps on the disrupt stay low between the 2 countries germany revived das collation talks between senior turkish and greek office szell's and
1:31 pm
initiative started in july but broken up by turkey several weeks later after greece and now some maritime deal with egypt or. this month turkey says it is open to dialogue with greece only if there's a fair distribution of rights in this in mediterranean but if athens continues presenting preconditions for dialogue and doesn't give up its uncompromising approach in the region and chorus is a real conflict may become unavoidable see now because so little al-jazeera a stumble. sorry for the weather iraq is here with updates on the turbulent weather in asia yeah typhoon in fact service a look to move fairly rapidly from the east china sea up into the yellow sea that's in the last 18 hours or so it's typhoon could have to ask to hurricane now the core of winds that are that strong stretching about 100 kilometers in the center so don't quite reach jeju but james you do get damage in that most of us but gale
1:32 pm
force winds if you tween you and me that looks like rotten wood to be on so there will be some damage with it has been sometimes this thing is forecast to go directly north through the yellow sea and make landfall probably north korea so that's where the much of the damage the wind damage could happen causes from the flooding as a result of that though it's thankfully over the water. another story a show on the fairly active weather on the monsoon. that could but it's gone further this line of cloud up through pakistan has been active it's caused flooding not far away from. the northeast of corruption crushing itself has been fairly wet in fact struck the length and breadth of pakistan bastard's of heavy rain and it's gone beyond it's gone to afghanistan and although this looks just like a muddy mess this is caused many deaths in northern pakistan and the forecast isn't a good one from that point of use. to some degree after there's more rain to come in the next day or so. thank you rob lots more still to go on here our knowledge is

1:35 pm
a 3rd night they're demanding justice for an unarmed black man jacob break he was shot 7 times by police in the back he's been paralyzed from the waist down. out a serious investigative units has obtained the cyprus papers a cache of confidential documents the state thousands of people who bought citizenship in cyprus some are criminals and some are seeking a safe haven away from their own governments the names include hundreds from china and the middle east and u.s. president donald trump the 1st lady and the secretary of state school conte 2 of the republican national convention we're here with decades of precedence the 1st lady malani a transport from the white house rose garden on my compay all recorded his address journey diplomatic mission. well here section of state is jews and have high level talks in the united arab emirates and pay a visit for those trips to israel sudan and by her in the u.a.e.
1:36 pm
and israel established diplomatic ties under a u.s. brokered deal earlier this month but bear didn't say what he would discuss in wednesday's closed door meetings well they were him fry hat system associate professor of conflict resolution at the door institute he joins us now by skype good to have you with us on the news let's just start with those leave the domestic politics for one site in terms of might compose mission in the middle east so how are you likely is it that you will be successful drumming up support with other arab nations to normalize ties with this through. i think he made some progress over the. not really significant quoting sample if you will from israel to . jews they then explain why that it's light but i think he was the 1st u.s. official to do this. his trip and sudan was disappointing for having because he
1:37 pm
did not achieve what he wanted but she of which was he was expecting solid support from the so that his government transitional government thought of the normalization of that with israel so on that level i think he struggled significantly and so on so i think that's why he is leaving to go by and i'm delighted about emmett's in order to. try to get some more support in addition to jeb bush not employing him to the next few days and we can't ignore the timing of this of course a this diplomatic push does come in the middle of a rather divisive presidential campaign and this must also come into the thinking of the arab nations. are trying to courts do you think countries like bahrain like oman for example are likely to. take this timing into consideration or do you think many arab states will be likely to wait until november to see how
1:38 pm
much progress they should actually be making. i did say i think this is more of an election campaign that i'm really trying to make peace in the middle east for example i was so that. significant into this coalition that it's being marketed as building a coalition against the i'm so that has no role to play in an equalization against the same thing you know their militia should with this has been practically immobilized a long time ago i mean there is no hostility between saddam and his are so secure that it won't be you he is trying to get some to make some just some 2 election campaign successes in order to take you out of the presidential election and they will ask how likely. is it on countries like bahrain and it is possible.
1:39 pm
i mean practically also and by and that has been notable ization going on for a long time united that a minute has already come through for him but beyond that i think. that it's quite difficult with all my and also moral cause being mentioned. it's many i'm likely to see a big if there were happening on the on that level but by and especially that that's sort of been its policies but in policy mostly with the saw with saudi arabia so that it yeah i don't think it's going to happen anytime soon one but the man again also this month would not like symptoms be. to be footballing day and i think that i've been in it so that is already the i want to be between you know my mother and i think that a bit outside we've seeing this movement is being led by united not a bit but it's so probably the most wanted and the maximum what he would that you probably are behind but beyond that i think i'm
