a way to break the unity of the u.k.'s divided government meets. a cease fire could soon come into force in southern syria after a deal agreed in the past few hours more than three hundred thousand people have been displaced in weeks of fighting near the border of jordan and these very occupied golan heights but rebels who have been battling a government offensive in southern syria have now agreed to stop the deal calls for fighters to hand over heavy weapons reports say they would then be given safe passage out to rebel areas in the north in exchange government forces will take control of strategically important border crossings with jordan the army would also agree to leave four villages in province. bernard smith is out the job at
5:02 pm
a crossing the jordan syria border joins us live from there there was some movement last time we spoke was it looks like now some of those an hour ago we saw the first syrian and russian military vehicles rumble towards the nasty crossing which is just behind me a significant prize for the acid regime in the battle to wreak take control of this part of southern syria over my left shoulder some is going to show you some other syrian and russian military there calls that have moved across the road behind me in the last hour or so an indication they moved in really within minutes of it being revealed that a surrender terms essential have been agreed by the opposition forces. with the room with the russians negotiating with the russians there's been actually no gunfire or shelling or taxis since about half past ten local local time this morning when they started negotiating again and the assumption is that that cease
5:03 pm
fire effectively will now or hold the opposition fighters have been given safe passage if they wanted to many thousands of them will to northern parts of syria to rebel controlled parts of northern syria then their families will go there because that is one of the very last very few places still under opposition control their remains up for discussion connect through which is along the. israeli occupied golan heights border with syria that yet to the terms of yet to be agreed for there we understand the map will be the focus of talks or discussions in the next hours and days we understand because otherwise there will be another fight for that area sami bernie what does this mean for the hundreds of thousands of people who are stuck at the border. well i think and certainly the jordanian government would hope that that means that those under the powers and stock certainly on the jordanian syrian border would be able to go home if they feel
5:04 pm
confident enough to do that an important part of making them feel confident is the knowledge that the russians will be overseeing effectively security of this border area that is why those syrian forces withdrew from four villages they take control of those villages and other areas along the border will be supervised security wise by the russians because the opposition and many people who've lived under opposition control your fear reprisals from the syrian regime's if they feel confident enough to go home. the refugees could quite quickly disappear from this border area a huge relief to jordan particularly which have been under enormous pressure to let them in sami and smith at the job of crossing what we're going to do now is continue this with hide hide these syrian columnist and consulting research fellow at chatham house in london good to have you with us does this deal effectively hand back the whole of southwest syria now to the assad regime. well it's
5:05 pm
not clear what will happen exactly because the regime will definitely have more influence over the area but the details about what they're all of local rebel forces and local people in rolling their areas would be like is still not clear this is one issue the other issue is what will happen on basically areas around can a triangle and highs where the israelis have made clear that the series at least. the iranians are not allowed to send any forces and they basically said that they were to retaliate against any kind of. military presence on those areas so we don't know what might have been their issue here is that there are many spoilers who can easily just. violate the deal and increase their lives it will fail and again in that area this deal is in between the regime of the f.s.a.
5:06 pm
what about other opposition groups are very all signed a ball well so far it seems that. part of the deal also includes the forces that are part of the. according to area earlier reports those. fighters will be transported to when it comes to other fighters who are active in the region specially. in will lead one which is directly affiliated with isis the deal doesn't include that which means that there will be some fighting in different areas for sure what happens to the people stuck there does this. least the rebels they're all going to head to the north one understands to. some people may want to go back to their homes some may not effectively are people from the sunni heartland of income that being pushed
5:07 pm
into it live and how long can they hold out there does that become the next regime target. well this is this is the question that everyone is asking right now first of all whether russia will. try to prevent the regime from any type of attacks over in areas around northern syria and whether that agreement between russia and turkey will continue to hold because for the region if it will to control that part of syria southern syria then the only two areas there are will continue to be outside of its control the northern syria and eastern syria for sure the regime will try to capture one of them we don't know which one will be the next target but any of them could be ok thanks for your analysis on that hyde. park stands outside prime minister has been handed a ten year jail sentence for corruption but he wasn't in court to hear the ruling

5:11 pm
a trade war a trade war is the last thing we want to see because as we've said many times no one country will benefit. thirty four billion dollars worth of goods will be affected from farm products to automobiles chemicals and medical equipment as those u.s. products become more expensive china has been looking for other countries to supply them china has been trying their hardest to diversify suppliers of energy of agricultural products especially when all the heat focused on saudi being on china has been boosted his investment in a lot of other unconventional countries for soybean exports such as russia in so doing say critics of the u.s. policy beijing has been forging deeper trade links with u.s. competitors there will be no winners the question is will there be something lose more than anybody else right now though it looks like the united states is doing the opposite of what it intended it is in essence rallied the entire world against
5:12 pm
it and u.s. tariffs could ultimately hurt u.s. firms as well as chinese that's because far from being a straightforward take for tat easily winnable trade war it's complicated for example some of the chinese some. conductor's the u.s. is putting tariffs on use microchips that are designed and made in the u.s. so those companies will also be hits. it's thought the u.s. is imposing tariffs to punish china for what it says are unfair trade practices and stealing american intellectual property rights but attending a gathering of sixteen central and east european leaders in bulk area chinese premier league co-chairing said foreign firms were safe in china. our view is that trade war is never a solution china would never start a trade war but if any party resorts to increase of tariffs then china will take measures in response to protect the interests uphold the authority of the world

5:18 pm
and fifteen iran nuclear deal was discussed at a meeting of five major world powers in vienna foreign ministers from britain france china germany and russia were joined by divides early for iran it's the first time they've come together since the u.s. controversially renee exam the agreement earlier this year european leaders are hoping an economic package will persuade iran to stick to the deal despite the u.s. sanctions john holl joins us now live from vienna as those talks wrapped up where did they end. in conclusively i suspect it is probably the only answer to that sami you'll recall that after the u.s. walked out on the deal the five remaining signatories to the deal said that they would uphold it if iran kept to its side of the bargain to iran said it would do so if its interests were protected in other words if it was adequately compensated for the loss of revenue as a result of the imposition of u.s.
5:19 pm
nuclear sanctions and indeed u.s. secondary sanctions threatened against anyone who continues to do business with iran but it doesn't seem as if there's been any breakthrough either in convincing iran of the economic nomic benefits of staying in the deal or of coming up with a means by which that compensation can be made a statement read out by federico federica more green of the e.u.'s foreign policy chief said they all agreed to recommit themselves to to the deal and recommit themselves to finding ways to maintain trade with and business in iran but that is hardly headline making stuff it doesn't give the iranians much to chew on mohamed germans or if the iranian foreign minister who was a key negotiator in the two thousand and fifteen the original deal of course said that the proposals on the table were imprecise and incomplete the iranian president hassan rouhani on thursday night called the proposals disappointing i don't think
5:20 pm
much has happened to alter that assessment clearly this is the first meeting of many. and so jonah now in the situation is such that there is a question about whether the europeans have the muscle to try and shield kirani and sectors such as oil and banking from the u.s. sanctions is is that what they're really trying to offer can they offer that. i mean something along those lines version of that sort of thing i mean i think it is a huge open question of whether the the e.u. and these european powers pressure at russia and china can circumvent u.s. sanctions or. compensate wholly for them if they can't what they still need to do is to present a case to be run that even if they're losing out there is still financial advantage to be had in staying in the deal more than they would be in leaving the deal and
5:21 pm
some of the proposals that we've heard about on the table for instance involve using the european investment bank to make loans to businesses wanting to do business with and in iran allowing them if it was shielding them essentially from those u.s. secretary sanctions perhaps governments paying directly into the iranian central bank rather than using the commercial banking sector i mean these are some of the sorts of things being talked about some of the proposals being aired it isn't probably going to completely negate the effect of u.s. sanctions but as i say that's not the main issue here it is convincing iran of the efficacy and point of staying in the deal they haven't done that yet as i say these meetings will go on. thanks so much jonah there. british prime minister to resign may in the cabinet are locked in a meeting for what's being seen as a make or break talk on brags that the government is divided on how to leave the european union with the march two thousand and nineteen deadline fast approaching

5:23 pm
full of technicalities but at its center it calls for the u.k. to be allowed to set its own trade tariffs with foreign countries allowing it to forge ahead with trade deals as far away as australia and of course the united states outside the old traditional trading block of the european union itself it would also allow for goods arriving into the u.k. destined for the european union to still be under e.u. trade tariffs but those trade tariffs would be collected by the u.k. and then passed on directly to brussels such as trying to some extent the remaining is in the cabinet under this plan it would also allow for there to be a certain degree of regulator realignment when it comes to standards for instance with the european union over things like health and safety and so on and so forth but brag city is worry that if that is the case then doing trade with the united states that has very different safety stand this may well be challenging there's
