advanced international studies in washington a very warm welcome professor i mean this is starting to feel like a deja vu we've seen this before massive offensive is announced u.n. warns of a bloodbath offensive goes ahead and the world moves on for the nearly three million people in this area what can the international community do because words like bloodbath they're meaningless at this stage. i think the international community can do bury little doubt it's a last gotten terror on to restrain damascus and i don't see either one is willing to sacrifice much in order to do that iran seems to be wanting the fight in include russia might prefer restraint but if the fight begins i expect them to support. the us presence donald trump has warned
8:12 pm
president assad not to quote recklessly attack the u.s. ambassador to the united nations nikki haley said this let's take a listen and we'll continue our conversation at the i think what you are saying is the president saying to iran russia and assad don't go there we're not going to accept it it's not ok what you're saying from us and the fact that the security council wants to talk about it is do not let a chemical weapons attack happen on the people of it lead. it's a strong warning but what does it mean i mean all the rest is fair game massacre torture just don't gas your people you have to tell us what it means that i don't expect them to use gas at this stage they have sufficient manpower to go into it live blues conventional force. i think the americans have a very weak position here one that could. be their
8:13 pm
demanded chemicals not be used might be satisfied but i don't think they have much influence over whether a conventional attack occurs right now and let's talk about the role of the u.s. in this theater because it's played a very insignificant role up to now do you see that role may be changing in the near future. i do not i would describe it is internally in significant the u.s. has played a pretty strong role in defeating near samik state especially in eastern syria but the president clearly wants to get out the americans are looking for some sort of resolution that will enable that happen it probably won't happen right away but i do expect eventually to the americans who would drop. do you expect between now and friday for disaster to be averted.
8:14 pm
predicting the events of this sort. is difficult i'd be surprised if a full fledged salt occurs for friday but i won't be surprised if the person next week so. i haven't seen anything yet that would stop it professor daniel serwer directs the conflict management program at johns hopkins university sir thank you for weighing in i think and meantime german foreign minister heiko moscow says berlin is working with turkey to prevent what he called a humanitarian catastrophe in syria is it live region my ass made the comments after meeting with his counterpart and president tayyip erdogan and uncorrupt also said germany is working with turkey temper relations between these two countries also on the agenda was the release of seven german citizens who were detained in turkey on political charges after the failed coup two years ago.
8:15 pm
and you have you say you han is tracking this story for us in istanbul good evening yulia eclipsing of course these bilateral talks is this countdown to this major offensive in the live home to three million people what have the two men said about this impending military campaign. well yes later this was of course and major issue it's a major news issue here in turkey due to the geographical proximity of course and as you already mentioned both men agreed that a large scale offensive by government troops on rebel held it live could lead to a humanitarian catastrophe and the us needs to be prevented that's what they agreed on they're pretty much on the same page here turkey said it's trying to work on convincing russia about that too although the turkish foreign minister said joint
8:16 pm
work could be done to eliminate radical elements in. the german foreign minister of course is also concerned about the human nature and aspect is turkey is warning that a large scale bombing campaign on the lip could threaten the lives of millions of civilians and could lead to another wave of refugees trying to cross the border into turkey this is of course a concern in europe concern in germany and the german foreign minister that potentially germany would strengthen its humanitarian aid to turkey but of course it remains to be seen what friday's meeting on syria in iran will bring what this meeting can achieve and now you turn our focus back now to the bilateral relationship because it has had a very checkered past in the past couple of years the turkish government has in the meantime released two prominent german journalists from jail but seven other
8:17 pm
germans are still in detention on political charges how likely is it that the german foreign minister will be able to secure their release. well he repeatedly said he would openly talk about humanitarian human rights issues pardon with his turkish counterpart and he also said that he talked with them. about the release of the german nationals but of course turkey on the other hand is always emphasizing the independence of its judiciary system and germany is walking a thin line there is trying to you know balance between pressuring for the release of these german nationals and not impeding the independence of the turkish judicial system so no major news on that issue of service iaa think there might be some developments but of course nothing that would be openly announced on a press conference did abuse you leon reporting from istanbul thank you. and i'm

outlier of course being warren buffett's conglomerate berkshire hathaway founded in eighteen thirty nine thirty nine now it seems like in germany the tables are starting to turn with newbies like why are cards showing the old elite how it's done these days. but munich airport chinese travelers are known as avid buyers of luxury goods just before departure. since recently they've also been able to pay with early pay or we chat chinese payment systems. this watch merchant process is the transaction through the wire card company. germany's wire card takes a one point six percent commission for the service. and on the phone thank you to begin with it looks relatively easy and all the trader has to do is integrate a little software like that you also have to look very closely at the security angle when you hear about how much they target stowing we have to look after the
8:20 pm
data that means we have to make the corresponding tests in the data centers and get it all set up of this i am thinking. and why a card is growing along with it the company employs five thousand people once these i t specialists at its headquarters are discussing their expansion plans for the u.s. . under short while ago why a card acquired a transaction banking provider in india. to boom an online retailing is boosting wild card profits all over the world as retailers line up for the company's software solutions. in capturing the three in the c.f. i think we've always known very well that we need to move into markets are going to expanding rapidly we have to offer solutions for the customer only needs one partner and by focusing firmly on that approach then i think we've got a good point as to the direction to take on the pitch was the key and big lies.

country faces insolvency when. talking with the fund about how to continue advancing so that the impact of all the support that the international community has given to us when we close the agreement in june can materialize into an improvement in the fiscal indicators in argentina. because if you don't see it goes out of. the i.m.f. says progress has been made and it's willing to make concessions it says it's hoping for a quick agreement but time is running out the peso has lost more than fifty percent of its value against the dollar since the year began on tuesday the central bank sold some three hundred sixty million dollars in foreign exchange reserves to support the currency but to little effect. the government has raised taxes and it's cut costs several ministries face the axe. but that's provoked angry street protests along with calls for other forms of intervention as the financial crisis

worsens the catholic church has called on the faithful to pray for three days. facebook and twitter faced a grilling today in washington as the social media giants try to convince u.s. lawmakers that they're serious about stopping abuse and foreign interference on their platforms in our social media editor jared reed has been following the high profile hearing for us always good to have you here with us in person gerri first things first what was this hearing about basically it was billed as a way for sheryl sandberg from facebook and jack dorsey from tweeted to convince the politicians that they're ready for the upcoming midterms which are in two months time and that they're proactively trying to do everything they can to stop election interference from overseas because of the experience from russia in twenty sixteen and its use of social media to try and sell once the presidential election executives were contrite and said look we you know we didn't work fast enough at
8:25 pm
the time but we have learning out lessons and we're trying to prevent it from happening in other elections going forward i think though if you could summarize their responses it was sort of like we don't like bad things when we see bad things we try and stop the bad things and identify them i think there are facebook came out a little bit ahead of tweets at one stage sheryl sandberg was talking about how facebook lets users annoy if they're about to share false information and twitter is comparatively pretty useless at that and i think that came across in jack dorsey is responses i think they did find it but it's obvious that they have a lot more to do to identify problems to prevent the problems and also to be more transparent with the users about their purses let's talk about the hearing it's not this isn't the first hearing that took place in the past congress members of. congress were criticized for not really asking tough questions is a little also out of their debt how was it this time around yeah so back in april
8:26 pm
when they were questioning going online privacy some of the little make is they came across like they had never used the internet before they didn't really know what it was i think the lawmakers today had done their homework they there was quite a lot of required ranging questions ranging from election interference to the use of facebook and twitter to buy illegal drugs to the relationships with law enforcement agencies are also really concerned about these emerging technology of altering audio and video to make it sound like people are saying things that they know if they were quite concerned about i think the questioning was fairly pleasant most of the anger actually was reserved for google because google didn't send its executives to the hearing and almost all the lawmakers mentioned that in their remarks and were quite annoyed and angry about that yeah everybody what they were no show what happens now jack dorsey is meeting now with other another group of
8:27 pm
lawmakers yeah that's right so jack dorsey is going to be meeting with other lawmakers to basically answer to claims that demonstrates political bias and it's not something exclusive to tweet so there's a claim generally that the tech industry is biased against conservatives and that's being pushed along by people like donald trump because you might remember recently he sort of flagged the idea of regulating google searches because he thinks they're being manipulated to make him look bad i think the take away thing that i noticed today was social media companies have a lot to balance the policing what can and can't be said on that platform as we're trying to remain politically neutral and also protecting uses against the incentive to attract uses and make money so it's a tight rope yeah oh my goodness thank you so much there we really breaking it down for us greatly appreciated. you're watching. we still have a lot more to tell you about here's what's ahead. for our county on

8:31 pm
a guru in international course is warning the syrian government against attacking italy province the united states has urged the assad regime not to resort to chemical weapons while the united nations is warning of a potential bloodbath. the port of the mega city of lagos is one of the most important in west africa vital for supplies and goods in and out of the region but massive congestion on roads leading to the port is hampering his operations a recent seventy two hour security drive to clear up the traffic jams around the port area have made little progress while thousands of trucks still wait up to four weeks to get into the ports and our correspondent adrian krishna reports now from lagos. breakfast on the side of the road is nothing new for this truck driver. segment is stuck in yet another traffic jam near the port in
8:32 pm
lagos. that's five days that's why we've been stuck here for five days nothing's moving it's very stressful it's the only thing we can do is eat sleep and wait. papa is well known for its traffic jams but in the past few weeks the situation has worsened due to a strike at the port truck drivers often have to wait for a month to get in and the entry cost of a port for their vehicles has quadrupled. businessman cavaney benoit has come to have a look at the situation for himself he exports goods from nigeria. normally to three years ago we could do two three containers a month i mean a week now we're down to if you're lucky one in two three weeks sometimes four weeks so the clients are complaining you can't get as much product out of the country and it's just it's it's a disaster you know it by noise says the bad state of the roads the lack of ports
8:33 pm
in nigeria and mismanagement are to blame for the situation. that macedonia is due and from my assumption is some people probably benefit from it being the way to travel yes so bad that we had to leave iraq i'll be i'm and jump on a motorbike many of the tractor trailer soldiers that are basically open secret that if you're bright some of the security forces who are in charge of a range of the traffic you can jump the line. several institutions are responsible for traffic traffic police union representatives regular police even the military but they don't consider themselves part of the problem. there are just too many containers and the port authority isn't opening up the port to let them in. so every day there are more and more the major issue is the road so we have begging the government to help to reduce the traffic. we
8:34 pm
wanted to talk to the relevant ministry in the capital abuja but no one would answer our questions. so good things it'll be three weeks before he sees his family again that's the earliest he'll be able to deliver his goods he's hopeful though in two thousand and twenty lagos is set to get a brand new port. all right let's get you up to speed now with some of the other stories making news around the world. an emirates airlines passenger plane was briefly quarantined to add new york's kennedy airport after some passengers fell ill on board the u.s. centers for disease control says about one hundred people on the flight from dubai were being evaluated new york counterterrorism police tweet at the incident appeared to be of a medical nature. most want to government is disputing reports that some ninety elephant carcasses found in recent weeks were the result of poaching the charity elephants without borders says the animals had been killed for their tusks and it
8:35 pm
was thought to be one of africa's biggest poaching incidents of this kind. and they were poured from the wall the health organization says that more than a quarter of the world's adults don't exercise enough it says one point four billion people weren't reaching the recommended levels of physical activity and that's putting them at a higher risk of illnesses such as cardiovascular disease and cancer. are you an exercise or i am indeed i rode my bike for fifty kilometers today good job good job all right you've got a story for us out of india thousands of farmers who marched to the parliament that's right. and these indian farmers thousands of them the large marched on the capitol in delhi today staged this protest against the backdrop of poor living conditions that harvests have often forced farmers to borrow money from dubious
8:36 pm
lenders at exorbitant rates now this debt overload has forced tens of thousands of them into suicide and the vast protest in the indian capital today they demanded more help from the government which prefers to boast about the country's strong economic growth. these farmers would rather protest and kill themselves but twelve thousand farmers a year in india choose death to despair over their debt burden and meet your incomes the problem's been known for years and this is by no means the first protest but so far nothing's being done. ever since narendra modi's government came into power all decisions are being taken against the well being of workers in this country workers have become hopelessly quadratic non-unionized laborers are so frustrated that i can't even describe it i've become very difficult for them to even feed themselves now that i forgot. the farmers want debt relief
8:37 pm
along with a raise in the state guaranteed minimum price for their produce the harvest is too small to earn a living during droughts and when it rains over production ways on prices that's why they're now calling for a minimum price which is fifty percent higher than production costs but that would raise food prices when the government wants to keep them down. earlier we asked our india correspondent on a family car what the original of the farming crisis was. well i think there are many reasons for it you know hof with india's population farms and yet the farming sector contributes just about sixteen percent to india's g.d.p. so simply foot you know indian farms employ a lot of people who get produce too little and i think there are a couple of reasons extreme weather plays a big role most indian farms that rain fade you know droughts and rising temperatures post particular challenges on the other hand you have you know unseasonal rains floods and heavy monsoons that also affect farm incomes and you
8:38 pm
know experts here say that beyond that there are many structural problems that have blighted indian farming for decades and that includes things like indian five the average indian farms are small in size there's a decline in productivities there's a lack of modernization there's a lack of water conservation and also things like you know rising costs of farm inputs like you know seeds fertilizers irrigation so i think there are many many underlying problems in the indian farming sector. reporting from. cuba now where after years of years trade sanctions and inefficient centralized economy people have learned to live with very limited resources the response is what the cubans probably are furred to. invent. subversively substituting everyday items for things that are in short supply and sometimes a little piece of rubber can go a long way. you don't have to look far in just about any aspect of cuban life to
8:39 pm
find something like this a condom doubling at this rally as a balloon. condoms are so cheap and plentiful in cuba that they end up in the most unusual of places fisherman use them as barbers to float their hooks in the sea and every mechanic knows that a condom makes a terrific plug for a flat tire. the problem with all this repurchasing say health workers is that many people are liable to downplay the fact that condoms were actually invented for something completely different. than what they see the condom as a tool to use for other things that they really weren't made for like fishing and all those other things this is it for fishing it's used to protect your life and the lives of other people in the article to head. up us all. cubans are natural born inventors it seems so it's no surprise that the strong stretching
8:40 pm
characteristics of the condom make it far more useful than its original brief of contraception and disease prevention. here or hobbyist has discovered the rubber has an excellent application in home winemaking he just covers a bottle of grape juice with a fresh condom and when the fermentation process is complete gas trapped in the balloon collapses signaling it's time for a drink. oh my i'm not going to go in there isn't. there watching good of you news we still have a lot more to tell you about including. never look away it's a new german film that had its world premiere at the venice film festival last night and we'll get a sneak peek. but first brazilians are hoping to recover some priceless treasures from the ashes of a huge fire that gutted brazil's national museum it's thought that as much as ninety percent ninety percent of latin america's largest collection of historic
8:41 pm
artifacts may have been destroyed in the blaze firefighters combing through the charred remains have already made some promising finds. all that's left of brazil's national museum. millions of historic items now turn to ash destroyed by a fire that has ripped through brazil's history. and its culture. but its hopes that all is not lost among items firefighters have already found of fragments of bone it's hoped to skull one of the oldest fossils ever found in the americas maybe among them. bones were found but we still don't know if it's the skull of lutea where waiting research has also managed to rescue some items
8:42 pm
and there was great excitement when a security guard found this document across the street. but nothing can replace what's been destroyed and although the government has promised money to shore up what's left of the museum many feel successive governments have simply neglected this brazilian treasure house. european football is launching a new competition starting tomorrow at the nation's lake while the aim is to get rid of meaningless friendlies but the tournaments is complex so we brought in jonathan crane from sports to break it all down for that for us take it to take it away ok well the first thing to say is this competition involves all fifty five european teams that will be played out the first phase initially over three months now the teams have been divided into leagues of four a.t.t.
8:43 pm
according to usa for rankings the best teams in league a west team is that in league d. and then within that they group in threes or fourth still with me the tournament ends with promotion and relegation so it's probably best to think of this like eilat a tournament at your local squash or tennis club then the league a win as well player for the nation's league title in june next year and perhaps most interestingly for twenty twenty qualifying sports up for grabs now it all kicks off tomorrow germany taking on world champions from germany. is a founder the format. this year we're playing against the netherlands and friends to top opponents so i think the nations league is a good thing you can qualify for the final fall you can also get relegated this is a competition and competition is always good for the player as that's how we're taking it and personally i think it's good. ok so he is a fan how does this all tie in with the the twenty twenty eight european champions
8:44 pm
well this is one of the most complicated part of the format so bear with me twenty teams will still qualify through the usual process that's a winner and runner up of ten qualifying groups but then the last four spots will be filled by the winner of play offs in leagues a b. c. and d. now obviously if a country has already qualified their spots in the playoffs to be taken by the next best team are in a kind of time does about the pros and the cons. well the main selling point for you a fair is that this gives smaller countries a chance of current glory a chance to reach a major tournament so they were favored literally something in it for everyone but for top european clubs it's going to be harder for them to keep their best players out of national team scores like they've they've done for meaningless friendly's perhaps the biggest criticism this competition could be seen as rewarding mediocracy one by allowing a smaller team into a major tournament and two for allowing a big team a stop qualifying the first time around a second by say the cherry nobody can win. the great thank you so very much for
8:45 pm
