6:01 pm
hanging in the balance for millions of syrians as the u.n. security council votes on extending aid deliveries into rebel territory. and in school europe's top football teams discover their route to champions league glory that draws been made for many tournaments of knockout game to be hosted by portugal . so we begin with this ruling in turkey that will have both significant cultural and diplomatic implications it surrounds the fear of this 1500 year old unesco world heritage site in istanbul which for more than 85 years has officially been a museum but just hours ago a turkish court changed to that an old the $934.00 decree that turned it from a mosque into a museum and almost immediately the turkish president signed
6:02 pm
a new decree allowing muslim worship to resume there now the fear is important to both islam and orthodox christianity it was a church for nearly a 1000 years before becoming a mass the latest with sin and cos you are you at a little bit after 6 pm in sin m. it was interesting enough that the court made this decision but then the president acted very quickly. yes actually he was like for expected to have a quick presidential decree but it's probably not as quick and tonight he's going to have a nationwide speech to reopen in guys so far as a mosque this evening come on this is a very historical moment for the turks especially for the ones who have been awaiting for a sophie to reopen as a mosque and to be able to pray inside after 8 to 5 years and as soon as the court dropped this decision. and elements of 934 cabinet
6:03 pm
decree and the people came in front of fires so far as celebrating the court the citizens some of them were crying some of them are rare emotional some anyone connect the ira sophia being back to most with jerusalem issues so. the emotions of turkish people let me say is a little bit complicated out there but of course it's also sparked some international reaction especially the from greece i'm sure you will have guessed about that also from russia which is actually is the center of orthodox sects in christianity but for the turkish politicians sophia has always been a matter of debate camel especially when it comes to populism but i have to explain that 2 years ago when reopening oh yes sophia for worship as a mosque what i came up to agenda presence i had on set and we don't need that
6:04 pm
because we have enough most blue most is a giant one which is which serves like a museum and as a worship place and we cannot fulfill it inside so what we don't need i a sophia to open a mosque but this year for the last couple of months he is totally changed his position towards this this issue and he said that he is supporting and he said we expect to have the 1st prayer on july 15th which is the anniversary of the. it's quite sad that took place in 2016 and almost held for an hour or one hour and go we heard the president of turkey's general assembly speaking he said that the 1st prayer is going to be very soon really want to see happen very very soon and it should be it will be performed before next friday so some people say it's going to happen to morrow some say it's going to happen during the week but it's a matter of time for the turks of course that the magic reactions are going to be
6:05 pm
there taking off from the reactions that came from greece who accuse searching for provoking civilization greece cultures culture ministers 1st reaction was this and russia said that they were upset with the decision and the ecumenical church in turkey which is a very unfortunate church in christianity last week and the patrick also said that they expect turkey to preserve its set as as a museum but on the other hand are mainly in church in turkey supported the decision to reopen for worship and they said we expect turkey also to allow christians to worship inside iowa so feel at peace in a small place so we we are waiting for prison guard on suspicion of his going to take place in a couple of hours to learn more about how hala is so feel will serve worshippers come on that is cynical so you outside the ice of here in istanbul
6:06 pm
thank you for that. so as it was saying there has been well we're waiting to hear from the president but there has also been a decree already signed by the presidents and i think we've got a quick picture of it here they signed by the president of turkey reject type one only minutes really after the court an old. status as a museum and this decree says that muslim worship will resume the s. and m. said not exactly sure when it could be looking at july 15th so with us now from london he manages the turkey project at chatham house a regular contributor to us at al-jazeera. what are your thoughts on the implications of this given and and sin and made the point that people almost compare it to jerusalem in a way the fact that it is important to many different religions in many different people. present do on resorted to cheap religious populism to try to restore his flock in popular support to turkey
6:07 pm
in. including among his conservative nationalist supporters due to the reading fault tree. so this decision to convert the i.s.o. . from interim mosque will do very little to what she supports. it would do nothing to restore growth economy and it will only cause damage to turkey's stumbles and creation as a global. problem. and probably are and probably rent city and country does it mean if it is no longer a museum and is officially a mosque what does it mean for the the thousands of people who come there every year to visit it as a museum will they still be allowed in because that would have an impact so risen was. it very much depends on what arrangements that turkish government will
6:08 pm
introduce to anybody to assume to continue i suspect that this decision will mop up committee prevent tourists from visiting the i guess sophia already many tourists visit the blue mosque the famous. as well that's a ridiculous islamic sites across the country so i suspect that the government will welcome plates arrangements. concluded with a visit given therapies. 4. dollars and. what about the. the implications for this on. religion in tokyo you know as you said the cosmopolitan society and accepting society so many different religions there you'll same president who was made a populist play. president airborne is moving one direction and it seems turkish
6:09 pm
society is now going in a different direction. that turkish population particularly the millennial generation in turkey is not more and more each year one with with secularism with modern fabulous' such as a more greener city you have more freedom more more more free speech for for instance the very values that is moving in present moving in the opposite. direction and internationally sorry funny internationally as well as something i needed to ask you about the fact that there is opposition to this notably greece and from russia what impact would that have on president himself or is he just worried about the domestic population. i don't think that this decision will have the danger in fact his relationship with russia or with other
6:10 pm
research other countries we were i will of course expect that usual reaction from the concrete disappointment and unhappiness of the decision but ultimately what matters our strategic interests between present air go on and present and rather than whether. it's a museum or a mix. in chatham house always good talking to you thank you for joining us and cute. onto other news and several al-jazeera staff members have finished being questioned by malaysian police over the documentary on my current work because it focuses on people being arrested during coronavirus lockdowns the government which refused interview requests for the film says the work is biased and inaccurate al-jazeera and flatly denied us all the details now in this report and then it's the broadcasting of this video handcuffed and documented migrants being loaded into
6:11 pm
police vans in kuala lumpur seems to have hit a raw nerve with malaysia's government several officials have accused al-jazeera of trying to tarnish malaysia in which one i want to east investigates why so many foreigners of being locked up in malaysia is locked down. on friday the police called in the one a one east production team for questioning police say they're investigating the documentary for sedition defamation and violation of the communications of multimedia law the police are expected to file their report to the attorney general . we do not want to judge them but the attorney general's department after reviewing the documentary has determined that there were elements under the sedition act penal code and communications and multimedia. documentary investigation why the coronavirus pandemic is forcing migrant workers into hiding captured immigration raids as they unfolded in real time i'll just rejects
6:12 pm
allegations that the program was misleading or unfair. as well as the summons to the police there was an extreme online reaction which consisted of threats intimidation abuse and even death threats from people on social media. which was very concerning as well. the one i want to use team says repeated requests for interviews with government officials were declined or ignored instead they used a video from media conferences given by malaysia's defense minister they're going to record them going to. cop says al jazeera should apologize to malaysians saying allegations of discrimination towards undocumented migrants are untrue that malaysian rights groups say that since the new government was elected in march it's become increasingly difficult for independent journalists to operate that. we've
6:13 pm
seen. in the strongly worst cases basically for media especially media independent media especially. us press conferences al-jazeera is calling on the malaysian government to withdraw its criminal investigation. bernard smith. all the things lawyer says they are waiting to hear whether charges will actually be pursued. release. no conditions no what will happen is that these process statement to process. what we call statements which call. will be handed. putting subject. he's called for the direction that maybe even but. probably close. if if. you fight that.
6:14 pm
case then. but if. the prosecutor said he thought that some could be shut off in the face then he may have to the site charge all. the evidence and. with us from washington d.c. now stephen butler he's the actual program coordinator at the c.p.a. the committee to protect journalists even thank you for joining us is. the time is all this time isn't it journalists doing their job government doesn't like what they hear and decides to go defamation insufficient. i mean it's a it's a terrible situation i mean our position committed to protect journalists is to criminal definition sedition laws should never be used against journalists and frankly the question of whether the reporting was accurate or not is irrelevant to
6:15 pm
this even if it was inaccurate these laws are unjust and they should never be used against journalists. stomps on freedom of the press and freedom of speech and frankly doesn't serve democracy at all where obviously concerned about it being that it is our own journalism and our own. and dictate of the malaysian government and their approach to journalists and journalism. well it is since the government changed hands in march prior to that there was a bit of bit of hope that some of these laws might be reversed and there was a more tolerant atmosphere but you know we're seeing now that the government is very sensitive to critical coverage and this frankly though is an extreme measure it it's fine for governments to criticize what journalists do and that happens all the time but to press criminal charges for coverage they don't like crosses a red line that that should never be crossed and in addition to the concerns if i
6:16 pm
can put it that way of the malaysian government there's also the issue that out same as experienced death threats and abuse and extreme online reaction while sui use the internet so much to get out work out there this is the flip side isn't it the fact that there can be these orchestrated campaigns online yes i mean we see this in many countries and frankly it's frightening and and. there needs to be some better method of protecting people from this kind of abuse what we have found i don't have the evidence in malaysia but we have found in other countries that the government is often behind you know these efforts to discredit journalists and to intimidate journalists you know so it's a very worrisome trend what about your concerns about this putting people off from doing their jobs ultimately i guess that's what the government is trying to do here is to send a message to other journalists to you know don't mess with us. and that's where we have to and we say it all the time as well don't we journalism is not
6:17 pm
a crime. yes journalism is not a crime it is a crime to go after journalists and i have you i mean i'm a parent that equates not not you know not in in the real sense. but what this ultimately does is undercut the rights of the malaysian people who are access to information and that in itself undercut democracy. malaysian news consumers are voters and unless you have mentor nation knew you you have no way to select a government same but that is from the committee to protect journalists and we thank you for your time and my pleasure. here's what's coming up for you more evidence gathered of alleged war crimes by forces loyal to the libyan warlord khalifa haftar al-jazeera is investigations unit on how this how white supremacists spreading hate through violent song lyrics on facebook and in sports some n.b.a. players players heading to florida for the league's restart of taking safety
6:18 pm
precautions to the next level. by the netherlands says it's taking russia to court for its role in bringing down malaysia airlines flight m.h. 17 in ukraine which killed almost 300 people the boeing triple 7 was blown out of the sky as it flew of a territory controlled by russian backed rebels 6 years ago but the netherlands and australia have said they hold russia responsible for the attack moscow though has always denied any involvement said fastens announced a damn for us any more details on this legal action step. yes kemal the dutch foreign minister stuff has called the next an extraordinary step but he also said it was extraordinary that a plane with 298 people on board was shot down in july 2014 basically what the
6:19 pm
government is trying to do is to support the individual lawsuits that the more than $400.00 relatives of the passengers on board of that plane have filed at the european court for human rights basically the government wants to show that they are fully behind the 298 victims of 17 nationalities among them 196 dutch it is part of a very broad and white judicial fight the netherlands is fighting at the moment to give justice to these people on board of that plane one of them is also tribunals currently being held here in near i am so that where 4 suspects are on trial sri russian former military and one ukrainian but they are sort of a low to middle rank and the. relatives of victims have always said that they really want those responsible in the higher ranks and then they're talking about
6:20 pm
moscow probably the kremlin that they also want to be them to be held responsible so this step to the european court for human rights could be an important step to have to feel fulfilled that wish and this is soley dutch step i only ask because there's so many facets involved here the plane takes off from where it crashes in ukraine it was a malaysian plane there's so many different countries governments and groups involved. yes this is a dutch action because that 196 of the 298 victims were but to get away those stray also the netherlands has held russia responsible in a sort of diplomatic action that's currently being done at the same time they had meetings with russian representatives about this and this is all kind of secretive and behind the scenes and it has been happening since last year the minister minister block also said today that he hopes that these talks with russia will
6:21 pm
continue so that the russian state will somehow take some kind of responsibility if it's legally impossible to do so step announced today thank you. the world health organization's regional director for europe is visiting an area along the turkish border with syria dr hans kluge is overseeing the delivery of essential medicine and supplies to civilians in northwest syria earlier he met turkish health officials to discuss the impact of the coronavirus endemic meanwhile the results of a un security council vote on a deliveries into northwest syria is expected on friday the current mandate expires today but russia has pushed to limit cross border humanitarian supplies aid agencies are warning of dire consequences for millions of people if an agreement is not just the details with priyanka gupta. these we should shift to simply province bear witness to the staggering human cost of syria's war now and its 10 pm.
6:22 pm
children who weren't born when the fighting began live with their families in one of the many counts for those displaced not once but many times the adults are mostly out of work. nearly 3000000 syrians in the last rebel controlled on cleave in the northwest depend on aid to survive they are anxious about russia's efforts of the un security council to limit vital cross border liveries. the russian efforts to close the crossing is very very harmful for us this is not of any benefit to us it will prevent humanitarian aid we are living by that and we fight over it without its nothing will work we will die of hunger. supplies of united nations humanitarian aid from turkey to northwest syria is already restricted to 2 crossings russia wants to cut access to just one relief supplies from iraq in
6:23 pm
jordan have stopped since january because of russian and chinese opposition. what can we syrians expect from russia russia has done nothing but destroy and displace us if it were not for the russian regime the war of russia and iran against us we would not be displaced in this carol. doing it in seas have been supplying lifesaving food and medicines to displaced syrians for the past 6 years and they want to keep the crossings open your energy is in general it's about 30 percent. so if. all the court's order and actions in next time. this year extend will go to the course and we know actually from. our experience with very dim in general they will not. abroad by any kind of or with the northwest syria. if labor ported
6:24 pm
its 1st corner virus infections the state aid agencies have warned of the catastrophic consequences of an operating in overcrowded camps in a province where more than 80 hospitals have been damaged in attacks since december . the dowry health crisis is coupled with a crippling financial crisis which has left the syrian pound nearly worthless and cause prices in shops to so aid agencies warn that access to border crossings is critical to avoid starvation and disease for millions of syrians crank up the alters here. more with our diplomatic editor james buys now at the united nations how james what is happening at the security council today take us through it. well yes it's quite complicated so let me take you through this reason to slowly let's go back to 2014 and that's when the security council 1st authorized it was
6:25 pm
controversial at the time i covered it at the time getting aid into syria from outside syria rather than a distributed from damascus and the security council finally authorized in 2014 there should be 4 border crossings that the u.n. and other aid agencies should use to get aid into the country and that's the situation as it was that resolution was renewed a number of times and that went on until the end of last year until late december last year and then the russians decided when it was a renewal for the authorization of those checkpoints that they didn't like the idea of 4 border crossings they vetoed the renewal and having vetoed the renewal they pushed other nations to support only 2 checkpoints for only 6 months that borders to this week the authorization for those 2 checkpoints runs out at the end of today and all week the security council has been trying to find out ways to renew across a border operation we've had 3 different votes in the security council we've had
6:26 pm
one. resolution drawn up by belgium and germany which was renewing things as they are that was vetoed by russia and china and we had 2 different resolutions drawn up by russia one was actually a member and both of which didn't pass so so far we don't have anything that is going to take us beyond the end of the authorization that runs out on the end of friday that's why before the security council there's another resolution this time it's belgium and germany again 2 border crossings but they say just for 6 months so we're going to have this in 6 months time again if this passes i have to tell you word on the street is the russians look likely to use their veto again the russians seem adamant not to border crossings just one this time. so if we know all about what russia doesn't want do we know what they do want to what they're proposing at least while this is why i'm pretty certain they're going to
6:27 pm
veto got hold of this russia's got another resolution pushing through again saying that just one checkpoint which they've tried to do that twice already and it hasn't passed but just for 6 months this time so this is the new russia russian version i think this may well go on into saturday which will mean it passes the friday deadline which means for a time that we know aid going into syria the worst case scenario of course is that nothing passes and there is no aid or tall going in to those people from outside syria from turkey into syria that according to the humanitarian agencies will be an utter disaster so this is what i've told you very complicated and procedural diplomatic stuff it's really important and you're the man who understands that and we're very grateful for that james bays have diplomatic editor at the united nations. in the news ahead sri lanka tries to contain
