11:02 am
past accusing the united nations of being unfair in the way it treats israel this is nikki haley speaking at the u.n. security council. the united states is often stood beside israel. we did not on december twenty third two thousand and sixteen we will not make that mistake again. now we also heard some strong language from bolivia the envoy representing bolivia called for recognition of east jerusalem as the palestinian capital and he called for a return to the nineteen sixty seven borders now at this point the meeting has briefly broken up there's going to be more discussion before the vote proceeds but based on what we heard from nikki haley it is anticipated that the united states will veto this resolution this resolution essentially condemns the move by the united states by the trumpet ministration to recognize jerusalem as israel's
11:03 am
capital and move the u.s. embassy to jerusalem now at this point for a u.n. resolution to pass in the security council it cannot be the towed by any of the permanent members of the fifteen member body of the u.n. security council so if the united states does veto the resolution as we've heard nikki haley indicate they will do this resolution proposed by egypt will not pass the u.n. security council. see what happens next kaleb more pink in new york thank you very much. well the move to recognize to reduce them as israel's capital continues to cause wide scale across the middle east. any of us have been involved in protests and clashes with israeli forces for almost two weeks now and it follows chunks decision to end u.s. neutrality on one of the most pointless issues in the region with both palestinians
11:04 am
and israelis laying claim to the ancient city for the move has been followed by a wave of condemnation from european and muslim leaders. and the turkish president has been one of the loudest voices he's now announced plans to open an embassy in east jerusalem where if an option has more on how the jerusalem move is being confronted. here we are in is jury still in the part of the state to considered by palestinians to be their territory so in this status may be supported by turkey now and kyra has a dental consulate here but the country's president is now saying he wants to open an embassy here. we've already declared east jerusalem as the capital of the palestinian state but we haven't been able to open our embassy there because jerusalem is currently under occupation god willing we will open our embassy there . but turkish leader has been reacting fiercely to donald trump's controversial recognition of jerusalem as the capital of israel slamming other nations for
11:05 am
a weak response mr aragon appeared to be speaking home behalf of the movie more old when he claimed if we lose jerusalem then we won't be able to protect me dina if we lose medina we will lose mecca and caba the organization of islamic cooperation held an emergency meeting in istanbul wait hold on the international community to commit to making east jerusalem the palestinian capital. the us decision on your rousseau them because of its great buyers against the historical and permanent rights to palestine. jerusalem see the united states the solution to recognize jerusalem as the capital of israel is a dangerous one it will threaten security and stability and frustrates efforts to resume the peace process boy yet as a mayor all every possible step must be taken sick prevent the implementation of this illegal action by the u.s. administration however there is one question that sticks out here what factors and
11:06 am
no limits made it possible for the u.s. president's trip to take such an outrageous act and it's not just moved to mation is reacting to the u.s. recognition of jerusalem with a violent protest all over the globe the u.n. security council is now reportedly considering a draft resolution to abolish trumps decision that's following an emergency session requested by eight out of the. fifteen member states it's highly unlikely that the resolution like this could pass through the security council with america of course one of five permanent members with veto powers regional shouty from jerusalem. where it could be difficult for the other went to carry out the move as the entire city is controlled by israel which calls jerusalem its indivisible capital it doesn't currently host any foreign embassies international relations professor hussain bank she believes erdogan has moved has a lot to do with domestic ambitions and his promises to other muslim states. picnic
11:07 am
turkey can do it rather once again. israel has this i don't know that. shortly can do it in the foreseeable future but dance third month is different a message for the consumption first of all the under second one his promises to the islamic organization conference. together of course more of the rich can and should. look at the physical of the palestinian state but it is not easy it is just a promise to do more want to satisfy probably. the most to. also give some hope for the islamic conference organization but i do not expect that turkey can do it without understanding of. protesters have come out in the austrian capital vienna after
11:08 am
a far right party joins the new coalition government while the new government was being sworn in and he and his historic half palace and t.v. and other left wing activists protested outside a heavy police presence stopped demonstrators from entering the building. processes have been marching through the streets carrying placards saying don't let nazis govern a major concern for them is that key state positions have been given to the freedom party it will take on the foreign interior and defense ministries as well as the vice chancellor ship. there's been widespread condemnation of this agreement across many european media outlets lots of fears that this will lead to the the far right side of the
11:09 am
coalition having more and more say over politics in austria but we can look at what the well the coalition of put out themselves of what they say their policies will be we can expect that they'll be an increase in direct democracy along the switch small of putting big votes to the people in order to get their opinions on which direction the country goes in next but one decision that won't be put into the people's hands like that it's been confirmed that austria has no intention on holding in a brags that s.k.u. referendum any time soon we can also expect tougher immigration control we could also expect the austrian government to push for an end to turkey's accession to the talks we can also expect to see this austrian government pushing more for an end to e.u. sanctions against moscow. regarding the sanctions against russia yes we would
11:10 am
like for those to be lifted and we will try to play a part in this is a mediator to find a solution in the interests of yours so europe and russia can overcome the differences when you talk to people on the streets of vienna opinion still very split over the direction the country is headed in that i think things and i think we have sinned as before it was triumphant brags that an anvil happened and i think that i was taking it and i really don't think it's going to get. throughout europe as a return to the far right as you can see this in germany. as world with the f.t. got a lot of votes and if someone speaks about the refugee crisis you get the impression that this could have been handled better. on the good norman i think the far right are correct they're working for the people doing what people who wants them to do so i'm in favor i am happy with the situation well twenty seventeen hour c. in the far right rise to prominence in european politics if we look right to the
11:11 am
beginning of the year of course we saw good to build is pushing hard for the the dutch prime ministerial race and their elections there we also saw marine le pen in france be the number one challenger to emanuel micron in the french presidential elections where is here in germany where i'm talking to you from the alternative for germany party they took up seats for the first time in the bundestag in germany's parliament well while sebastian could denies that he has any truck with the far right the fact that it had to go into coalition with the which the austrian freedom party has seen him heavily criticized german political scientists in turn upin sound believes the e.u. will have to reconcile itself to austria's new coalition. west european governments won't take any significant actions against this new or stronger government because
11:12 am
on the one hand writing populism has been growing in all these countries in the self-confidence of europe centrist leftists government has been shattered by this rise of right wing populism and on the other hand the former coalition between the p. and the. did not hard to europe nor to austria law or any policy stake which are contradictions to humanitarian. rule of law standards of the european union fearful european governments don't see any reason for horse restrictions and even saying chills right now. that a mere putin has called donald trump to thank the cia for vital intelligence which helped prevent a series of terrorist attacks in st petersburg r.t. jaclyn there joined me in the studio earlier with more details. into both the white house and the kremlin are to part from the cia allowed russian authorities to arrest a number of people in st petersburg over the weekend who are planning
11:13 am
a series of terrorist attacks throughout the city the white house also released a statement on the situation calling an example of how there can be positive cooperation between the two countries let's take a listen. but he told me information the united states provided russian authorities were able to capture the terrorists just prior to an attack that could have killed large numbers of people no russian lives were lost in the terrorist attack as well course and now incarcerated so quick and called to extend his thanks and congratulations to the cia and its director mike pump a.o. and trump in turn passed on that appreciation complimenting the entire intelligence community in the u.s. and that warning from the cia led to a series of arrests happening a series of raids happening last week by the russian security services during which seven people were arrested and they found large amounts of explosives and weapons and even a bomb making workshop and so it's believed that that tornado a suspected series of attacks from taking place in st petersburg and
11:14 am
a number of public places which of course there can be tons of turkey tourists in those areas and then the call putin also promised to react in kind with the united states that if the russian intelligence services some sort of whispers of any attacks being planned in the united states they would also turn over that information well great news in the fact that they managed to stop attacks but also is it good news in the fact that it seems that there is what trump is probably just storing in u.s. russia relations well i would say that might be a bit premature at this point in time donald trump is in fact today expected to roll up his first national security strategy and one of his top officials when briefing reporters on the speech said that while ties between washington and moscow how picked up a bit after the real low that they had a few months ago it's still often seen that the two countries their interest just don't align and sometimes is still directly conflict with one another meanwhile trumps national security adviser general mcmaster has hinted that term strategy
11:15 am
really is going to resemble his predecessors and many ways mean that russia will likely remain on that top list of challenges to american security as they would put it so this hint of cooperation really might not be the light at the end of the tunnel just yet. and we discussed donald trump's new national security plan with strategy analyst gregory copley he believes political pressure is keeping washer among the perceived threats. the national security paper reemphasize russia as a strategic threat well unfortunately yes it will largely because of the media and opposition pressure which which has always claimed that he did a deal with moscow in order to help his election campaign so he has to appear to be sure he said even handedly against russia and to raise russia as a potential adversary once again yes there are points of difference between the united states and russia but the reality is that as i said that president trump
11:16 am
will need to and does want to work with moscow on some global issues particularly the middle east but most importantly against the people's republic of china. how expected presidential bid from the famous name in libya i'll tell you who after the break. join me every thursday on the alex salmond show and i'll be speaking to guest of the world of politics sports business i'm sure business i'll see you there. what was russia gave is now quickly becoming f.b.i. gate who will investigate the investigators also does the u.s. have a real north korea policy and the end of net neutrality and the start of internet apartheid. because the vessel
11:17 am
only forty a day play a short tournament. and it's ask you all your life by beautified all it's everyone so make. wise whatever somehow six times well it's a list of the story. welcome back islamic state has reportedly claimed responsibility for an attack on an afghan intelligence training center in kabul armed militants stormed a partially constructed building at the complex triggering intense fighting with security forces local journalist bill are so ari reports. one car bomb has
11:18 am
exploded there's another one that the attackers had brought in with them it's quite an embarrassment to say the least because these areas should be protected these are areas where afghan intelligence trains its members in new recruits and next year it is another facility that tasked with providing security to other installations in kabul in all across the country what we see these days is that militants or targeting kabul in other major cities which is almost. front line for them in the last few months we've also seen americans and other nato countries pounding board says as well as taliban positions and afghan special forces have been carrying out regular operations it could be a retaliation but certainly what we see more and more that the
11:19 am
afghan government in its international allies failed to prevent these attacks from taking place in kabul. as mentioned their islamic state has recently carried out a number of attacks in the region on sunday i saw militants kills nine people in neighboring pakistan while last month two died of islamic state attack on an apple t.v. station and in late october seventy two people were killed by islamists in two separate afghan mosque attacks during friday prayers. now russia is back to cold war era hostility towards the west according to british foreign secretary perez jones and he's been speaking ahead of this week's meeting with his russian counterpart sergey lavrov in moscow. as more ahead of this first visit by u.k. foreign minister to russia in five years worth johnson has certainly been making
11:20 am
some curious comments in his typical manner for starters he has drawn some comparisons between russia and sparta i was reading few city's history of the political war it was obvious to me that athens and its democracy its open this its culture and civilization was the envelope of united states and the west russia for me was closed no militaristic and democratic like sponsor well boris johnson has also said that russia has not been so hostile to the u.k. or western interests since the end of the cold war and quote now was speaking to the sunday times on the oh so popular issue of russian meddling he said again that he see no evidence of russian influence when it comes to the bracks it referendum if you remember in the past he's even used the words not a sausage of evidence but he has said that there is some evidence that there has been russian trolling on facebook this might be in reference to some of the numbers released by facebook that have said that only two hundred people in britain had
11:21 am
seen any adverts which cost just over seventy p. these numbers were certainly quite curious given all the endless talk about this alleged russian meddling and facebook influence when it came to that referendum now also ahead of this visit it's curious that some apparently here in westminster are nervous about what is going to happen when boris johnson finally gets to moscow for talks with his counterparts we have seen the chair of the parliamentary group on russia and labor as he chris bryant publish an open letter to boris johnson warning him of certain thing. that could come including things such as his food potentially being spiked some kind of influence to not let boris johnson get enough sleep things like honey traps why beautiful kremlin agents as well as maybe his phones being hacked or bogged he's also been warning to stay away from any drinking games and has been letting boris johnson to be weary of being alone in an elevator and
11:22 am
making faces so that this doesn't get used against him in the future but that said boris johnson has made it clear by sort of repeating his mantra of beware but engage that he does plan to have serious talks when it comes to the situation in syria and specifically collaborating with russia to defeat isis terrorism so certainly lots to look ahead for when it comes to this visit later in the week. the son of former libyan leader moammar gadhafi is planning a political comeback according to a family spokesperson saif al islam gadhafi who will run for president in the country's election next year for the second of ten children saif was one of the most powerful figures cheering the rule of his father he was brutally killed by western backed insurgents and twenty eleven so they face the death penalty for crimes against humanity jury in the uprising which was released after six years in jail. well the announcement is expected to kick start of the presidential race in
11:23 am
libya on sunday protesters came out in favor of another potential candidate national army commander lisa tough tough tough becomes in the wake of a launch scotoma witnessed in libya since the twenty eleven war and the un rest shows no signs of stopping.
11:24 am
for more on the subject let's bring in all of the model for my u.k. ambassador to libya all of the thank you very much indeed for joining us well let's look at this as a realistic prospect then i mean what chance does saif being elected president. well but the first thing to say is that nobody knows whether there will be an election the u.n. representative gave an interview a couple of weeks ago in which he said he hoped that conditions would be suitable for an election but it's by no means clear that they will. but there's also the fact that libya is deeply divided we've seen we've seen dozens of rival tribes seeking control i mean is it possible to a unified libya and be also to do it peacefully. that remains to be seen that's what the outside powers have been trying to do for a long time the u.n. . the u.n. representative of being working i think very in that direction but they haven't
11:25 am
succeeded yet the moment the country is divided it's badly divided there are several different claimed claimants to be government none of them have a map a clear claim because none of them out of control over the whole territory and that situation means that an election are wouldn't really make any sense in fact it might even even make things worse and also what kind of reaction do you anticipate from inside the country in reaction to getting cut off his son running for president i mean could there be a wave of anger from opposition forces for instance. oh i'm sure there would be yes will be a lot of opposition to him it's very difficult to judge whether he would have any realistic support or not if you want my personal opinion the answer is no but one can be sure that there are of course some people who are not for the gadhafi days or. they argue world more secure than look the chaos and i.q.
11:26 am
which prevailed in libya today on the other hand many people. hated gadhafi and would be be absolutely dead against any kind of return of the gadhafi family to a park if you want my personal opinion. it's not going to happen and also let's look at the wider implications here in terms of sort of international organizations i mean the western backed government's mandates that has now expired i mean what's next for that government and also could we expect more participation from international organizations for example the u.n. . yes i think you're making a false distinction if you refer to western powers the fact is that the united nations has been united in its support for the efforts of the korean or representative to get all the different groups in libya to work together but they haven't been true trust for that's the problem it's not a question of one lot of internet of outside powers being against another i think
11:27 am
a misreading of the situation. so from islam gadhafi when his father was still. in charge in libya over the dictator if you like of libya. and some success in getting the attention even admiration and support from outside libya and britain for example the world the world some people who were convinced that he was look the hope for the future and in other countries too i don't think those feelings were widely shared enjoyed libya and we'll leave it there oliver miles former u.k. ambassador to libya thank you for your thoughts thank you. now i have some news just in from the u.s. an amtrak train has derailed in pierce county washington state and we hope to bring you the first images from the scene within the next hour track says it is aware of the incident and will provide more updates as more information comes in. well for names and plenty of other stories go to our website. at the top of the hour my
