government and of course all of that said the reason that this situation unraveled kind of in the first place was because swedish officials wanted to follow him following potential alleged sexual abuse concerns now what is important is that those have been long lifted now so julian a songe arguments in this latest case to have the arrest warrant lifted is that those have been dropped so any potential alleged breach of bail conditions should also be lifted crucially of course we have to say that organizations such as the united nations have said that his detention is arbitrary and in violation of international law and dorian officials here in london have raised concerns about his potential well being seeing the situation of him staying holed up behind sort of inside four walls for so long is all beastly not sustainable according to them so lots of questions now in terms of where this case will move forward obviously what's. crucial as well is that within the last month. officials have granted

julian assange ecuadorian citizenship also raising lots of questions about the possibility of potentially him being granted diplomatic status which could make it easier for him to get out of the u.k. but all of those questions really yet to be answered as this hearing continues and now all eyes are going to be on what this judge decides in the weeks to come here in london. washington has accused turkey of destabilizing northern syria with its military incursion is currently carrying out an offensive against the u.s. backed kurdish militia groups there and is pushing closer to positions held by washington's troops turkey is seeking to clear the border area of what it sees as terrorist forces here's how the u.s. state department has commented on the situation. people now have to flee an area that was previously considered pretty stable i mean what a shame that is think about all that this country has been through and now we're looking at another destruction in northwestern syria because turkey has taken its

eye off the ball isis and going after the p.k. at this time. the weapons have been provided to the white b.g. by the united states the americans haven't kept their promise since man big lately trump statement saying that they won't give any weapons to the white p.g. anymore and then saying that we are not giving them any during last night's telephone conversation have created a crisis of trust. a phone call mentioned there by turkey's foreign minister has also been a source of tension with ankara claiming what was discussed has been misrepresented by washington president trump relayed concerns the escalating violence in africa syria risks undercutting i shared goals in syria here to turkey to deescalate limited military actions and avoid civilian casualties the white house statement about the content of the phone call between trump and dick and were probably drafted before the conversation took place because it did not reflect the truth by

washington corresponds to me or conflicts further than at the deteriorating relations between the two nato allies no matter how many times washington says encore its ally the reality is far from it as distrust between the two grows stronger u.s. turkish relations are headed south. turkey is an important nato ally we understand fully understand turkey's concerns should go to. america is in the process of creating a terrorist. america do not encroach on all borders do not provoke cos we will run outs of patient. this has led to consequences on the ground in monday if the turks and the kurds came so close to each other they were almost at each other's throats and then washington literally had to step in to prevent the fighting but no lessons learned clearly especially considering the turkish campaign against the kurds in a green right now. don't
12:05 pm
be friends of kurds if you want to keep good relations isn't the only signal washington missed. the coup attempt back in two thousand and sixteen made things worse there's the local one and turkish cleric living in exile in the us and grow things glenn orchestrated and demands that the us extradite him. and recognizing jerusalem as israel's capital didn't do their relations any good either and it even created an opening for heir to want to grab the throne as leader of the muslim world this distance to watch. and look good out of. trump why are you backing israel whether it's ok patient torture and terrorism is that what you would defend one would think that the us would take the theory of their ally into consideration before making any rash decisions but instead of treading carefully washington to cut aid to all of the countries opposed to the jerusalem says that the most important problem between upstairs and talk is that is that there is no you know
12:06 pm
nobody you know trusts their other one this is the main problem for tricky especially to talk to people and government never rely on never trust in. you not to states and especially in middle east and issues. so whether this is all been deliberate or not washington has only been tangling this not further and further. journalists in the us have noticed a quietly made added to the official mission statement of the national security agency online it turns out the words honesty trust and openness and all gone the old core values used to begin with the word honesty saying that the american people have placed great trust in the n.s.a. and therefore the agency promised to honor that with openness well now it's instead starts with the phrase commitment to service here's how the n.s.a. explain the changes. it's nothing more than a website that's all to. the effort to delete words that are
12:07 pm
that mean a lot to americans such as honesty and transparency and what have you has is something that. is important but if the national security agency's deleting it i think that that means that they're getting more according to reality as to just how these intelligence agencies work they are they're not called the deep state for nothing and and the only thing that they did agree that they did keep was the provision of. respect in the law and but even there they fudge on that. the greatest sporting show on earth gets underway in russia this summer if you think that twenty eighteen football world cup might inspire you to improve your game theory and style stan collymore meets the man who designed some of the game's greats. one guy came to me one day and said

12:11 pm
a growing threat from islamic extremism in europe based in the balkans and the german government is keeping it to itself but that's according to a highly classified report that's being seen by some left party m.p.'s the media. the german federal government cannot discount the basic threat posed by individuals and splinter groups in the islamist scene in bosnia-herzegovina. the hush hush document goes as far as to claim that there is a direct link between radical islamic groups in bosnia herzegovina and people in germany the true nature of what this heavily classified report says hasn't come out parts of it were redacted from the copy that was shown to the left party the federal government has been trying to downplay the growing islamist threat in public furthermore it's entirely unacceptable that the government continues to cover up the role of the gulf states my colleague charlotte devinsky traveled to

bosnia herzegovina back in december she witnessed firsthand the situation on the ground there regarding islamic radicalization the local a mom is telling me that some of the residents have joined islamic state in this one minute of the road and there are people who went to syria and forge on the side of i still but we tried to stop them. it looks like an ordinary sleepy village a few houses nestled between the hills not how you might imagine a cradle of terror. a local a mom says he fears for his life after speaking out against those who joined eisel we do this in a parade of these radical elements are always unpredictable and these people prayed with me they ate at the same table as me and they want to shoot me this has been edited version of the report issued by the government raises a lot of questions over what exactly germany knows about islamic radicalization in

12:15 pm
here in russia is a bit of a sensitive subject but what added fuel to this fire was the fact that this movie was supposed to be shown along and during the anniversary of the stalin of the battle for stalingrad the largest battle of the second world war so the officials at the russian ministry of culture decided that maybe it wasn't such a good idea to run the film at this particular at this particular moment so they at the last minute really they revoked the movie's license so we cannot be shown here in russia but some movie theaters like the one right behind me decided to ignore this because for example this one has sold out all tickets to all of its showings of this movie until february the third when it comes to the public opinion all about this movie well really it is split some are saying that while the subject is sensitive and.
