because that where they start to divide the country to be it's still where they start to divide the language your blood will flow for the. ninety nine days the soviet union is breaking up part of the members of the russian federation would have to find their own way politically and economically of would love some of it was an incredibly difficult task of. this democracy was a lie because the elections were for autistic privatization was robbery the soviet union's heritage where does russia stand today and moscow's empire our series starting november fifth on w. rumors gossip and no agreement yet after five rounds of negotiations there's little progress and plenty of hearsay in the separation of britain from the european union
known of course as bracks tonight who's willing to tell the truth about rex i'm burnt off in berlin this is the day. well here we are again after another round of talks i am ambitious and positive about britain's future and these negotiations and we're still no clearer as to when negotiations on britain's future with our largest trading partner will actually begin but i'm confident that we will be able to negotiate a new deep and special partnership i'm now beginning to have a feel a very worrying sense of groundhog day here. mr speaker we are going to leave the european union in march two thousand and nine to. mr speaker in will it's the most
crucial negotiations of our country's recent history we clearly stuck in an impasse delivering on the democratic will of the british people. does the prime minister believe and i come that he's not getting might be setting the bar a bit to love. also coming up tonight to the us president's call to console a fallen soldiers wife and the name that should not have escaped him. if my home when he's out here by employ our country and he'll raise his life for our country to remember his name. or we begin the day with a divorce proceeding is going nowhere last week the leaders of all european union countries minus britain came together and came to the. same conclusion we're not there yet e.u. leaders told british prime minister to resume may that the broad terms of the brakes a divorce must be settled first now simply put britain has to pay its bills before
it can close out its tab or rumors and reports have been flying ever since there is even talk serious talk of britain simply leaving the e.u. with no deal no deal would mean no guarantees to access what is and remains britain's largest and most important trading partner you guessed it the european union a german newspaper reported that things are so bad that british prime minister theresa may practically begged the european commission president for help during a dinner it last week the european commission president today denied that the prime minister's office has been signed or today the prime minister went to parliament with a positive attitude about the next stage of breaks it talks here's part of what she said and what she had to hear. he talked about us making real progress but we haven't reached a final agreement but it's going to happen. i have
a degree of confidence i don't have a degree of confidence that we'll be able to get to the point of sufficient progress by december off of the from a speech that is a new momentum the florence speech was a step forward on that should be a positive response to the willingness to work on the interim period and that has been a stop placed a momentum now as it happens those aren't my words though the words of chancellor merkel the t.v. show. the swedish prime minister the italian prime minister the polish prime minister and the danish prime minister the outcome of crushing out with no deal to become a deregulated tax haven the dream of a powerful faction oh i think she is and the front bench is would be a nightmare the people's jobs and the big stones that. labor's message is different country and. you know labor's message is that clear our message tonight is trying
to get at the truth and to do that i'm joined here at the big table by david charter he is the berlin corresponded with the times newspaper he's also author of several books on breaks it which i highly recommend and joining us from brussels tonight is georg matis our correspondent who has been covering those talks taking place in brussels gentlemen to both of you welcome but i want to start with a comment that was made by the u.k.'s breaks it minister david davis about a worst case scenario ending two bricks take a list now what's what we've been doing for over a year now since august of two thousand and sixteen is making preparations for all outcomes now we don't want to no deal but if one comes we'll be ready for it all ready for it so david charters are breaks it means breaks it and now it can also mean a new deal is he for real. the thing is brant they cannot be literally
no deal because there is as we know billions of pounds worth of trade giving across the borders between the e.u. and great britain and it will still flow it won't all be stuck on one side or the other but what no deal refers to is then the trading reverts to the very basic world trade organization rules bridge which no one would want i mean it's like trading in the wild west right well it's like it's actually like trading slightly with one arm behind your back because there needs to be there are terrorists levels for countries which don't have very good relations with each other exactly has to go between we have until recently excellent relations with the e.u. and it would be crazy to enter into this world trading organization world of tariffs when the whole mission of the e.u. was to abolish tariffs and yes. that's the irony of it looks org what about
you know the situation there in brussels i mean is brussels seriously planning for . this possibility of a no deal in the. i think david here used the right word and that is crazy and that is i think the perspective that brussels has taken all along this the real difference here between a serious amazed position in the position of the twenty seven is they never promised that bracks it would be a success they always said throughout this will be a loose loose situation and there is zero interest to have no deal scenario of course they're still preparing for it and here's another difference of course it's an open secret that the leverage that the u.k. has is rather small they have of course the market access they are an important trading partner as david pointed out about the problem for two reason may and i think it became clear in the speech today is that the no deal scenario really is it is more of a strategy because as she said herself without that strategy you know if any deal would be fine for the u.k.
. interesting point i want to take a listen to what the european commission chief john called you said about this new deal option and also about the way the press the german and the british press have been reporting. british press you have to be a superficial as the british press is. going to say that working assumption is not the new deuce you know. not in favor of no good i will do it. so again or younger says he doesn't want to deal ending but if it were to come to that and he does the e.u. does it have a lot at stake you know you say that it's got more leverage here but it can't possibly want to see the u.k. right now and be in you know the wild west of trading in. no absolutely not brand i mean we're looking at five hundred billion euros compare that to the bracks a bill of fifty billion euros approximately which wharfs that number will look at
five hundred billion euros in trade from europe to the u.k. and so clearly there is huge economic interests at stake but here's something that breaks the tears throughout the campaign for bracks it and even now have underestimated and that is the scenario that the you is also not keen and get in giving britain a better deal than they already have and from a european perspective given all the opt outs and the rebate they have an excellent deal and if the u. e.u. would give britain a better deal this would be the end of the european of the of the internal market and that is why particularly france and germany are very keen to keep these negotiations tough to do to play hardball and david david davis he went back to the house and car commons and he said the e.u. and i'm quoting here is using time pressure to see if they can get more money out of a state do you believe that it is that what is happening here. i think there is
a small elements of that i think they there is a concern that the british side has not yet really. put all its cards on the table in a nailed down sufficiently what is going to pay to leave the european union however the clock really is against britain because it's there's a two year period it's mandated in the treaties which began in march so it ends in march twenty ninth that is when britain leaves the opinion that is why the new deal is looming larger because they're making such slow progress at just the first phase of the talks which is about as you say the bill and the status of the states in the national interest ratings but why not just pay the bill and have you know as they used to say in the wild west pay the bill and get the hell out of dodge why not just do the and so that you can move on to those important trade negotiations it's not quite as simple as that because it's reason why is under pressure from
a number of backbenchers who really detest the european union to limits in fact almost to nothing the amount of extra money that britain is liable for for the e.u. now and india is to come but they really don't want money to go having promised during the campaign that three hundred fifty million pounds a week would go back to the n.h.s. the difference is not going to happen it's unlikely to happen any time soon. but about the next stage where we see these trade talks begin in december as the british prime minister is promising and hoping for. brown let's take a look quick look here at face number one and the key points here and that will be the answer citizen rights i think theresa may has a vested interest to keep the workforce of more than three million citizens so yes i think in citizen rights there's there's a lot there's been quite a bit of progress if you look at northern ireland i think both sides have acknowledged the status quo is the only way forward and for in order to clarify
that you will need to talk about the future relationship and finally again i agree the bill. if she has her way against those who really want out at all costs i think they can settle on some form of a bill i think it will spare the british prime minister to put a price tag on it because that will be hard to sell back home but i think we will move on to face number two pretty soon i mean this an optimistic look what do you say david i'm optimistic because actually has to happen they have to move on at christmas and i will tell you now that i think the hardest of the three is actually going to be on and i really think it's a very difficult of the border because of the border because it's it's unthinkable for the republic of ireland that there has to into g. small border posts along a border with a political razor had to be they were removed and successfully removed as a result of the membership so that's a really tricky one to solve how do you check goods coming in and out of the venue
the border with between northern ireland or the republic of either you think that is actually going to be more of a sticking point than the final bill i do because i think you can set out on paper what these figures are on both sides and reach a compromise on the bill it's much harder to run a border between an international trading block and an outside country. with hundreds of little roads crossing it. which technology alone is unable to do you know that's a very good point well i'm sure it will give us reason to talk again about the as we said earlier the never ending story david charter as always thank you and georg marcus on the story for us tonight your brussels. here thank you as well. well the united nations says it is a textbook example of ethnic cleansing hundreds of thousands of row hinge or muslims are facing persecution violence in me and more and fleeing to neighboring
bangladesh every day brings more refugees across the border and bangladesh says it needs help to cope almost a million rohinton refugees from me in mars rock kind state are now in bangladesh more that have arrived in just the past three months most of the refugees we know are children now monday's donor conference which was held in geneva brought the total amount raised to help the ranger to about three hundred forty million u.s. dollars but that is still short of the four hundred thirty million that aid agencies say is needed here is more now on the plight of the work and. thousands of people still flee leon maher every day nearly six hundred thousand rwanda have left for bangladesh in recent weeks almost all of them have experienced great suffering. not big home wanders through the refugee camp and caucuses bizarre
clearly traumatized the eleven year old tells us what happened in myanmar. my father was murdered by a man marries soldiers thankfully i wasn't their. neighbors had hidden me and then they brought me to bangladesh. mines all out of their lives. janet is now searching for her mother she hopes she also made it to bangladesh jannat doesn't even have a tent she sleeps out in the open. more than half of the refugees here are children the relief organizations and the government of bangladesh aren't able to support them fully. everything is in short supply tents food and medicine there's just one hospital in the camp where a handful of doctors work around the clock. when they are on the run the heat and the long track are very hard going for those driven from their homes most people
arrive here in very poor condition. the most serious cases are treated in the hospital in the provincial capital. many refugees have been maimed by land mines or carry the scars of bullet wounds all of them accuse the myanmar's soldiers of brutality. just like. that. me and maher and bangladesh have formed a joint working group to discuss the repatriation route into refugees but very few actually want to return. with today a un led donor conference as we said was held in geneva called to the international community for help the were a hinge a crisis is just the latest in many flashpoints that demand action in leadership in asia well that is not coming from china at least in the ways that we have come to
expect the talk about that i'm joined tonight by eric gomes from washington he is a policy analyst for defense and foreign policy studies at the cato institute erika's good to have you on the day you just wrote a piece at cato on international relations at china's communist party congress which is taking place and that caught my attention i mean at that party china's president sounded very bow ready to be in charge of a new superpower but china has said that it will not get involved with me in mar and there were hints of crisis that is not what we expect to hear from a superpower when a refugee crisis is unfolding on its back doorstep is. no it isn't and i think that in terms of the party congress and like i said in that piece setting in some sort of remember that when she jinping is at the congress and when the communist party is having it it is primarily directed at internal issues within
china especially economic development military reform those sorts of things so international relations doesn't really play heavily in general but i think in terms of xi jinping calling for a greater role for china to play internationally if china wants to come up in the sort of international order that the united states has. established then yes you would expect to see it do more so i'm not sure if this is just a matter of xi jinping sort of focusing his efforts or the chinese government in general focusing their efforts on internal issues during the party congress and we'll see more action later but in terms of global leadership this is the sort of thing that most countries have come to expect and it's something that china has had a lot of trouble actually doing i want to play a segment of the. speech at the party congress take a listen. china will oppose the bodies of peace development cooperation and we progress. to its foreign policy of safeguarding
peace and promoting common development. which seeks to develop friendly cooperation on the basis of the five principles of peaceful coexistence and to establish a new type of international relations of mutual respect fanous and justice. he says there are a new type of international relations what does he mean there is there is a code for something that we should understand. i think it's just a sort of blanket term for saying that there is a new maybe not rule maker is the right word but saying that with the rise of china there is a country that will behave on the international sphere in a manner that is different from how past ten months have behaved. but you know past great powers have behaved and this is where the rohingya crisis i think throws two issues of china's rise into stark contrast on the one hand you have china saying that it wants to play a greater leadership role and it wants to have
a sort of new type of great power relations but on the other hand. when it comes to doing things like interfering in other country's internal affairs china has historically at least in their propaganda been very consistent out saying no we do not interfere in another country's affairs so you have this sort of contrast where china says it wants to play a more active role but then by doing so but then it also can't get involved in other country's internal affairs if it cares about its own internal propaganda so that it sort of exists in tension one or two with with she's an examining so bold a speech last week how much of this is just sheer opportunism on the part of china considering that the u.s. under president trump appears to be pulling back from so many of its leadership positions around the world. i think there isn't aspect of opportunism but it's also a sort of long running theme i think in in chinese development especially since.
it's using especially since two thousand and as and also especially since two thousand and eight when the financial crisis sort of showed the weakness of western liberal economic order so i think there is an element of opportunism but it's also important to recognize that this is something that goes back quite some time and even before she jinping himself. we're talking about new super powers rising and declining what do you make of the scandal surrounding the u.s. soldiers killed in. the u.s. congress it seems knew very little about the soldiers even being there some call this mission creep you've got some people saying it's an example of congress being out to lunch is this the opposite of what we see with china are we seeing here a superpower that's over extended so much so that it doesn't even report what it's doing to congress. well i think a lot of a lot of what the u.s.
does in terms of special forces soldiers stationed around the world is as is classified and i'm sure there are members of congress who are aware of the activities but not broadly speaking in terms of you know how the u.s. and china go about their business on the world stage china is actually increasing its overseas basing presence most only most notably with djibouti and there is some discussion about the port quater pakistan being having a heavier chinese presence there as well and i think it's something that when you know when the united states and people in the in the west sort of worry about chinese growing interest it's important to remember that you know the united states has a lot of global interests and just because you have the ability to have sort of global reach doesn't mean that you will exercise that power wisely it doesn't mean that getting involved everywhere is a good idea and it can rapidly increase the problems you have to deal with in addition to maybe bringing some benefits so as china sort of finds its footing and
becomes a little more active in foreign affairs i don't think it's all going to be good for them i think they're going to have to run into the same sorts of problems that the united states has faced as it has tried to have a global reach and in terms of you know china's ability to control events and it's near abroad that might be a relatively good thing for the united states of china's distracted elsewhere than maybe it can't make more trouble in the south china sea or in the taiwan strait all right eric gomez with the cato institute in washington we appreciate your insights that you for being on the day tonight. well the widow of a soldier killed in the air earlier this month has criticized president trump for the condolence call that she received from him my you should johnson told a.b.c. news that trump could not remember her husband's name david johnson now johnson was one of four u.s. soldiers killed in these air while fighting islam ist extreme. i was very
angry at the way the tone of his voice and how he said he couldn't remember my hood's we may only way he remember my has been mainly because he told me he had my hoods reporting for me and that's when he actually thing led dated. her him family trying to remain in law is with me. and that will hurt me the most and if my husband is out here fight him for our country and he risked his life for our country why can't you remember his name. and that will make me a fan and cry even more because my husband was awesome so i would say. well u.s. president drum that was quick to respond and cast doubt on the version of events related there by my you should johnson in a tweet fired off shortly after that interview aired trump claimed he quote had a very respectful conversation with the widow of sergeant well david johnson
insisting that he quote spoke his name from the beginning without hesitation. meanwhile political commentators are pleading with the president to stop the tragedy from becoming a complete train wreck ana navarro tweeting sergeant johnson's widow mother and congresswoman who all this into the call disagree if trump had any damn sense he just draw this former chief white house ethics lawyer richard painter tweeting some advice he is president her husband is dead just say i'm sorry it's a hard call the make and i messed up and let it go. well the day is nearly done the conversation of course continues online you'll find us on twitter either at the news or you can write directly to me a print off t.v. don't forget to use our hash tag the day before we leave you tonight we want to finish with one of the great songs from the musical here which is celebrating its fiftieth anniversary this week we're going to leave you now with aquarius to
