12:04 pm
trust serious between these two nato allies and it's not the first time there's been a dispute over what was discussed by the telephone of these two leaders and it reveals as how difficult it is going to be to come to some sort of solution and the escalation of this potentially very dangerous rift between the two countries a rift that could even lead to a complete collapse in relations between the two countries and i think going forward i think until there is a solution to this there is little hope of any resolution in fact the turkish foreign minister. underscore this by saying before we can talk about any technical solutions we have to rebuild trust between our that's going to take time and most people on the ground feel that there is little time left to avert a major confrontation between these two nato partners but how likely is it that turkish forces will come into confrontation with u.s. forces that the expansion of the military operation. with this apparent failure in this conversation between the two leaders it does

12:06 pm
a nightmare scenario for nato that's right and what about the possibility of a nato and a russian conference or russia or force of a key player in the region. certainly are you have to realize that it was moscow that allowed this turkish operation to start in the first place they control syrian air space it appears that they are what they do are allowing turkish forces now to use airspace with impunity for now at least i think moscow is very happy to sit back and watch this deepening crisis between two key partners it's always been a long term goal of moscow to drive turkey away from later to drag its. influence this least for now appears to be succeeding and moscow will be very happy to sit on the sidelines and watch it all on fault although moscow will have the back of their minds be worried about turkey's growing influence in syria with that comes the prospect of turkey clashing with damascus which moscow is backing so it's a difficult game moscow's play but at the moment i think they're very content with

12:09 pm
of different opinions let's put it that way protesters for example they've been protests this week right across which led to zurich thousands marched against not just trump but also the world economic forum itself and what it stands for in their eyes as a global elite they believe trump belongs to that global elite as one of the super rich. there are also many here who would really like to hear what he's got to say and whether or not he's is a message that could actually. go down well with many of the rich and super rich here in davos it will be very interesting to see what he has to say amrita no doubt he's going to be talking about his america first policy that won't go down with well with a lot of the globalists here his tax policy certainly has that's what i'm talking about tax policy not trying to see an office for over

12:11 pm
