have very good relations with both the king and the crown prince we have been making good headway practically in all fields surely we do have to bear in mind that the 2 countries are the world's largest oil producers are they competitors you know in this case most likely opec plus partners too so all kinds of oil and gas and issues related to the energy sector are on the agenda especially after the drone attack from last month on one of saudi arabia's most important oil refineries which the country's output by almost a half and almost put the region on the brink of a real crisis. yemen's
9:01 am
who the rebels said we did it washington and allies almost immediately blamed it all on to iran it was feared that a u.s. led strike on iran could have been imminent the incident even led to vladimir putin suggesting that saudi arabia whose army is almost totally dependent on arms imports from the u.s. should buy russian made air defense missile systems it's another chance for mr putin to sell those but even without them 2000000000 dollars worth of contracts are expected to be signed between moscow and riyadh. but apart from things to be bought for cash moscow is bringing plenty of presents which include russian movies cartoons and opera and concert and a collection of russia's paying. everyone sure got the whole throughout only of

surprises ready for mr burton grow but for now what that will be has remained a secret. syrian government forces have been advancing towards the turkish border this monday after a deal was struck with the kurds to help propel angrez ongoing military offensive arches video agency has obtained footage of the syrian arab army pushing into our house a cop province in the country's north east breaking down the developments here's possibly. well as can see in the video that we've obtained there are armed men and vehicles crossing the border and entering the area of al has occurred in the far north east of syria now this confirms earlier reports that we were receiving from local media in the area suggesting and say that the syrian troops were advancing northwards and that the kurds were out on the streets celebrating as reports of a deal between the turkish authorities and the syrian authorities broke and that
9:03 am
deal to quote is aimed at preventing and confronting the to the aggression what is significant is particularly this video showing for the 1st time in years that all syrian army has reached kodesh controlled areas where they've been cut off from for the long time now the long term plan will be for your could soon democratic forces as well as your syrian army to patrol the syria turkish border and for your kodesh militia who are guarding the checkpoints to allow them free passage the syrian media continues to a port that the syrian army is advancing northwards we're hearing from libya nice television that in the coming hours they should be entering the strategically important border town that is held by the kurds of called bani at the same time there are reports that the pro turkish forces have cut off the main road traveling east west through the kodesh territory already on sunday you had your soup. on the
9:04 am
reports are reaching the area. in now that's just 60 kilometers away from co bonnie and this is off to kodesh militia allowed him to pass flee through the checkpoints now this comes as we continue to receive reports that on sunday the turkish bath forces reached the area of tel so far more than 10 people have been killed on both sides many more have been displaced unfortunately it seems as if the situation is just going to deteriorate. who has been quick to react to the turkish offensive that has condemned the operation against the kurds and called on ankara to halt its military action in northeastern syria france and germany have also temporarily stopped arms exports to their nato partner. for his part has said he hopes both turkey and the kurds can prevent detained islamic state fighters from fleeing amid the chaos kurdish officials have already said though about hundreds of family relatives of foreign i still have escaped from detention because don takes
9:05 am
a look at how the crisis may unfold. this is turkish and kurdish fighters beating each other black and blue and there's hate begets hate a hydra that was thought to be called dead is raising its head again. the version does not only threaten the reactivation revival of islamic state but has revived and activated it stills in chemistry and other areas left all alone against the turkish military under its proxies the as d.f. needs every man and woman who can hold a rifle to defend their homes so the guards abandon some of their prison posts and some 800 i saw affiliates missed no chances here breaking loose from captivity and more sensing the lax watch over them are no longer afraid to rattle their cages or get them running for the hills there and while both damascus and its neighbors have plenty to be concerned about because of this it's europe that is really worried.
9:06 am
the turkish operation in syria is our main concern our common wish is that the offensive must end we believe that it risks on the one hand creating an unacceptable humanitarian situation and on the other helping to reemerge in the region military action will undermine the security of the coalition's local partners namely the kurdish forces and risk for attacked it is the billet in northeast syria providing 1st try to ground for that is arrogance. and the latest jailbreaks might be only the very beginning of a truly massive outpour i mean look at this there are isolated tensions centers all over the kurdish controlled areas they hold tens of thousands of islamic state affiliates thousands of them being former fighters actual former fighters and many of them holding foreign passports yes the e.u.
9:07 am
had every. every type of warning bell ringing for them the kurds begged europe to take back jihad us with the e.u. passports and put them on trial at home the position of doctor by many european states have also been adopted by many other states across the globe countries are very reluctant to take back home anyone who's been connected with so-called islamic state as a foreign fighters because a the judicial systems within many liberal democracies haven't got the ability to bring evidence that would be sufficiently robust to get through the court systems and prosecute these people and the 2nd thing is to try and monitor them would cost a huge amount of money europe of course is haunted with p.t.s.d. terror from the caliphate headed smite and we're living those moments he's europe's worst nightmare.
9:08 am
so condemn call for dialogue stop every last arms crate to turkey all you want now like fixing a crumbling house with duct tape over worked well the situation is worse because evidently old these foreign fighters which were detained under the kurdish. detention centers are now being opened in different ways and these people are being freed on the territory which means does this people 1st of all can be active in the territory of syria again and possibly being foreign fighters they might even decide or choose to return to europe and therefore to uk to be their selves in europe
9:09 am
again. we're joined live now by security and political analyst omar nash abbate now are there any details known about the deal struck between the syrian government and the kurds beyond that assad's providing soldiers to fend off the turkish and incursion. my sources and syria say that there is no such deal as in an international agreement or soldiers a kind of of a push martin un told the agreement between the 2 sides remember we have to take into consideration 3 elements one the tension that was very high throughout the years the past years between the kurds and the city an. official government in damascus this has been escalating for years and the 2nd point is that any other push ma and the syrian government realizes that i mean up close up much more with the kurds will increase the tension with turkey and that is a matter that could could get out of hand and in fact the 3rd component is the most important is that the syrian government considers itself the the actual sovereign
9:10 am
power in all of syria's so therefore it doesn't need any agreement with the turks to actually step in and defend its border against any. attack that is the attitude of the syrian government right now yes perhaps there is a kind of an untold agreement with the kurdish forces syrian for the syrian army once to assert its power it wants to make sure that it controls its territory the tension is very high but i think that there is still room for diplomacy. now if syrian soldiers are placed current on the border with turkey do you think that will prevent further escalation. i think that depends on how the actual diplomatic track moves forward you see the syrian are to be i think strong or later will actually take control of the border patrol's it will take over however there is a big role to play the russian foreign embassy. i think the
9:11 am
russian ministry of foreign affairs has a big role to play here and i think it is possible to reach an agreement to give the turks what they are asking for formally they are asking for security for securing the border that could could be put on the table and could be discussed and some progress could be done because i don't think the syrian central government in damascus disapproves of any country's efforts to defend its borders this isn't a very normal request however this will need some coordination specially after so many years of tension and so much bloodshed has been spilled in this part of the world do you think there is any possibility of this moving into a full scale conflict between turkey and syria. yes i started by saying that the situation is there like it it is possible that things could get out of hand but i think so far so far that i think that there is a big opportunity there's
9:12 am
a big chance for diplomacy to succeed i think of the escalation hasn't been out of hand the only most dangerous most delicate thing is the issue with the prisoners and i think here also there has to be talk in the government in damascus will have to also take charge of that and actually control this matter this is a matter on city and soil and this will have to be and when it comes to turkey i don't think turkey wants a full escalation with syria and i don't think the syrian government in damascus wants the full list and that's why i'm very hopeful that there is a room for diplomacy security and political analyst thank you for your time and your comments. russia's defense ministry has refuted claims that its jets delivered strikes on a number of hospitals in syria in may accusations were published in the new york times on sunday and on a quarter is now here in the studio with us live to give us more information on
9:13 am
what exactly was in that article well jacki the article says that the russian air force has been bombing targets hospitals in syria in order to crush government opposition now what kind of evidence does the new york times claim to have they say they have unpublished radio recordings that were allegedly caught by residents in the region and anonymous witnesses who claim to have identified russian planes carrying out bombings against hospitals now we have heard a response from the russian defense ministry and they say that the publication has befallen prey to misinformation. 1st of all would like to express our regret than a major news outlet has fallen victim to the many people ations of terrorists and the british intelligence services the real conditions of life in the deescalation zone that they're allocated to control a terrorist group related to job are very different from what the new york times imagine is done to be. of the ministry went over a number of problems with these radio recordings number one being the fact that
9:14 am
russian pilots don't communicate bombing targets over radio in the 1st place russian jets in syria don't receive target coordinate data in open radio transmission this is why all the supposed evidence presented by the new york times is worth less than the paper it was printed on. and number 2 the gadgets used to pick up these radio frequencies and which are featured in the new york times article are too expensive for ordinary residents to afford moscow says that these are most likely connected to an air strike warning system developed by an american company deployed by british intelligence and handed over to the white house and so the ministry has cast serious doubt over. a serious suspicion as to who exactly are these anonymous sources. there is no other reason except the connection to the white helmet which acts on the authority of japan to explain the absolute in the name of all sources in the new york times article and then there was something
9:15 am
about one of the hospitals being located in a cave tell us more about that one of them was located in the cave it's called coffers eat up and just recently my colleague roman costar of actually visited caves in the same area in which this hospital is located he was part of an international press tour that included 80 other correspondents from across the world and what these correspondents saw what the expedition saw in those caves were not hospitals they were actually huge arsenals of weapons large made in large part by in the west so the defense ministries response it seems shows that the facts are in and are in against russia as the new york times claims are taped on quarter the queue for bringing us the latest. global news update continues after this short break.
9:16 am
so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy confrontation let it be an arms race this on off a scary dramatic development is only going to resist i don't see how that strategy
9:17 am
will be successful very critical time time to sit down and talk. welcome back england's 1st national child gender reassignment clinic is the for in the firing line or claims under researched and experimental treatment it's now being sued by a mother of a patient and a nurse who used to work there they're asking the court to ban the tavistock center from prescribing hormone blocking medication unless a court decides it's in the best interest of the child the clinic and the trust in charge of the gender identity services and north london are also being accused of giving families misleading information about the risks marcus evans a former governor of the clinic and the husband of the nurse suing the facility argues that the treatment is indeed under researched. it is
9:18 am
a controversial treatment with a volatile who. keeps a long reaching consequences. we really don't know what's going on in this area and yet the trust was acting as if 'd there was nothing to look at everything was fine and we just carry on as normal of never being again transitioning and just again young kids 'd making decisions all that any decisions all maybe all i couldn't as a parent make a decision not that i'm going to you know what you 'd want how do you talk to a 12 year old about the implications of their treatment. so they will know it when they're 25 when they feel like a completely different person the clinic has not given comment but did state it provides a high level of service for its patients despite the controversy around the treatments the number of referrals to the clinic has increased exponentially marcus evans
9:19 am
again believes the topic of gender dysphoria has become highly politicized and the wellbeing of patients is overlooked it is something about this area is highly politicized which means this is. questions all your cues that being transferred and actually may or medical practice ready is not taking place in modern v.a. is not enough research is not enough interest in the downside of what's going on is not on our scrutiny all. 'd of the issue of consent and i think we need an independent regulatory cordie that would oversee 'd these controversial 'd area and not reduce the trustees to being goal with the approach runs lobby's it's not it's not only i don't even necessarily realize to what extent that political forces draw i ving what's going on in this area. a wave of deadly

hello and welcome across for all things are considered i'm peter lavelle nato versus nato washington in ankara at cross purposes in syria what's next for the alliance also trump will be impeached what does this mean for american foreign policy. cross talking some real news i'm joined by my guess here in moscow glenn these and he is a professor at the higher school of economics as well as author of the decay of western civilization and resurgence of russia also we have exhibit moreau he's the
9:29 am
founder of the center of political strategic analysis trouble and we're joined by dmitri bobbitt she is a political analyst and editor at me internet media project origin across the uk rules in effect that means you can jump in anytime you want and i always appreciate it. let's talk about top of the news right here we have 2 nato countries at odds in a 3rd country were neither one of them should be there under international law now damascus having all but one this conflict this international proxy war they must have some kind of morbid sense of humor watching 2 hour 2 allied countries in the same military alliance at odds with each other the president the united states is telling the president of turkey if you go over certain lines which we don't know what they are they can face devastating saying sions again what's going on in nato . well trumps rhetoric we should also be a bit cautious with you similar well he has told his his treasury department you
9:30 am
know prepare for yeah but also told north korea they should expect theory about you know a few weeks later expressing you know how they fell in love so it is you know he does go a bit back and forth now but it is interesting with nato united states nato versus nato because at the moment we have turkey wanting to there's a representation of self according to this emerging distribution of power which means they don't necessarily want to only align with with the u.s. or russia or or iran or china and on they want to be a little bit can you can you play their game with they need to and out there would be that would be unique and i think nato would have to adapt a bit because nato threw up the bipolar and unipolarity nato us man to align with the united states and you know you are fall in line i think at the moment we're going to have to.
