tomato focus on me focus on the destructive radical islamic terrorism that is taking place within the united kingdom we are doing fine aren't we phillips joins us live from london and barnaby the u.s. and the u.k. are allies this is quite an exchange and it's not just cheery some may have felt compelled to say something tell us more about their reaction. the u.s. and the u.k. are perhaps more than allies certainly the british like to talk about a special relationship in extremely close cultural relationship historical military diplomatic but this spat is unprecedented and it puts to reason may and the british government in particular in a very awkward situation don't forget that the reason may received some criticism here at home with the speed with which she embraced donald
2:06 pm
trump after the election made it clear that she wanted to be the first foreign leader to go to the white house extended a state visit invitation to donald trump to come here to the u.k. that would involve the queen and so on all of that looked a little bit hasty at the time it now looks very embarrassing and yes the criticism of course it's coming from the opposition parties but there is deep i think disquiet within reason may's governing conservative party of if i may i'll just read out a tweet from such a job he's a minister within the government the governing conservative party of course he's a muslim and he says so protests has endorsed the views of a vile hate filled racist organization that hates me and people like me he is wrong i refuse to let it go and say nothing well what the british government is saying is that donald trump was wrong to read tweet these messages from
2:07 pm
britain first but that there is a distinction to be drawn between the man the current incumbent and the office of the president of the united states and there is a distinction to be to be drawn between what british people might think about donald trump and what they think about the united states itself and that's why amber rudd the home secretary was speaking in parliament a few minutes ago and she is saying this goes much deeper than donald trump that she works she sees the intelligence sharing with the united states on a daily basis intelligence sharing that saves lives and that is the bigger picture . ok arnie philips live for us in london thank you john michael cox is director of international academic affairs at bus just steer university in turkey he says trump's twitter behavior is damaging the u.s. position internationally and inciting hatred against muslims. what this is done is
2:08 pm
just highlighted the fact that trop and this i think is the far more important story is now damaging values that are upheld here in britain and in the us i mean he's up damaging the notion of decency and tolerance and respect for office and all cultures indeed he is now effectively an accomplice of hatred and division and his mom a phobia so we're not even talking about you know the special relationship whatever that is we're talking about donald trump actually damaging the u.s. position with many countries around the world and prost most importantly trying to set americans against americans the convergence of this unique man with his ego with his narcissism with his lack of information and the use of social media puts us into a very different position and that is donald trump is not just going on twitter as some type of political strategy or tactician when donald trump goes on twitter he
2:09 pm
goes on as double trump to say what he believes what he has done in the last twenty four hours in a message to forty four million people on twitter and his supporters as i believe in hatred of muslims i believe in basically inciting hatred against them i believe that even if those muslims are americans you have to look upon them with suspicion that is the point that we're out to be blunt if donald trump was at my university he would be fired for what he has done in the last twenty four hours if he was a teacher at a school where my children go alongside muslims and jews and christians he would be fired so why should he have a special position to say what he is saying just because he is inside the white house and that was a scotland's medical sources say at least ten people have been killed in fighting in yemen's capital saana forces loyal to former president ali abdullah saleh fought with her three rivals near they also a mosque salat loyalists accuse the who thinks of committing the coup the groups

have a loose alliance. syria's opposition is meeting un mediator stefan emma store in geneva and the eighth round of united nations concert talks to end the civil war discussions are happening as rebels trial trying to topple syria's president bashar al assad has set to being significantly weakened by nearly seven years of fighting syrian government because she has held talks with them store on wednesday our diplomatic out of her chair and spain's trying to slide from geneva so james what phase are these talks and right now well i think that the special envoy stephan de mistura is trying to move things on pretty far let me show you the scene here in journey room with the flurries of snow you can see the reporters outside the door that we've seen inside the door both delegations going at the same time for the first time actually we've had them both in there for what's called proximity talks
2:11 pm
since liked abrahim e was the special envoy going back a number of years what happens in proximity talks is you have both in adjacent rooms the special envoy talks to one speaks to one goes then to the next room and relays messages we understand that that is how they're going to proceed in next at least for the next few hours i also understand that the government delegation isn't particularly happy with things as you know they perspire their arrival here in geneva there on happy about some of the comments made by the opposition side in the special envoy has put out a statement saying that both sides should refrain from talking to the press and saying things that might upset the other james what. obviously that the overarching thing as a goal to end this but there's a lot of steps to get there what are the particular sticking points that we believe they're focusing on now. well they're not focusing on the really difficult stuff
2:12 pm
which in the end is the big question should a sad stay or should he go the special envoy mr de mistura wants to look to other things where he thinks perhaps he can find some agreement one is a future constitution for syria the other is an election so you get the people of syria to decide their future un supervised election but there are a very tricky points there as well particularly in a situation as you have it now with a large part of the population of syria or see outside the country that i know would be one of the sticking points can those people in refugee camps of they have an election can they vote ok timespans live for us in geneva chambers thank you our diplomatic editor. so ahead on al-jazeera european union and african leaders pledged to do more to help thousands of migrants stranded in libya and zimbabweans count the cost of the new president's plans to turn around the failing economy.
