6:00 pm
right. washer. this is al-jazeera. 11 john harvey one come out santa maria and this is the news hour from al-jazeera more than a 1000000 syrians are left to rely on a single border crossing for food medicine and other aid after a compromise that the united nations also in the news more deaths reported in mali's protests now the president promising big changes to the government the man who led the u.s. russia investigation breaks his silence saying donald trump's ally roger stone is still a criminal even though his sentence has been wiped. out counterfeit cash printed in
6:01 pm
russia is making its way around libya and funding the offensives of war khalifa haftar. i'm joining us cope with the sports as world champion lewis hamilton clinches his 1st victory of the f one season at the staring grump rage when it's a bad day for ferrari. so a single u.n. security council decision could immediately affects more than a 1000000 syrians living in rebel held territory members have agreed on a compromise that will allow just one border crossing with turkey to remain open for humanitarian deliveries a deal made after russia backed by china pushed to close off the other crossing their argument is that the aid should be limited because it isn't done in cooperation with syria's government the concern from the perspective of the a groups though is that this will just create
6:02 pm
a bottleneck that the aid won't get through because across all of syria more than 11000000 people rely on humanitarian aid including all those people who live in the camps the german ambassador to the u.n. did not hold back with his criticism. these 500000 troops. will wake up tomorrow morning and realize that we have to tell them that the german ambassador asked those people who gave the instructions to give instructions to cut out the 8 or 500000 children they are ready to look into tomorrow compounding the situation is the demand for assistance it has been rising in fact more than 1700 of these trucks cross the syrian border in may which is the highest number since the whole war began and then you've got the spread of coronavirus threatening to make things even worse several 100 cases have been detected but it's likely to be many more because testing is so limited and a little bit of history because it's not the 1st time the number of aid routes into
6:03 pm
syria has been cut to have a look at the map and 2014 when the u.n. security council originally authorized aid to go through for crossings to from turkey one from iraq one from jordan in january of this year opposition again from russia and china forced the routes through iraq in jordan to be dropped so you've just got the 2 turkish crossings allowed they went for another 6 months and now once again at the assistance of russia and china that has been reduced to that single point it is called. so let's hear from cuts now he's deputy regional humanitarian coordinator for the syrian cross border operation he told us earlier that they need more crossings now than ever before. now this is happening at a time when the humanitarian crisis in the country has actually got worse we had almost a 1000000 people displaced earlier this year we've got a coronavirus in the area we had the 1st few cases of coronavirus in the area just a few days ago so we are very concerned that the amount of access for humanitarian
6:04 pm
aid is being reduced at the very time when we actually need more access we will still be able to reach all of the people with humanitarian needs in northwest syria it's just going to be a lot more complicated we're going to have to adapt but you know that's what humanitarians do around the world we work in war zones we work in crisis situations we often have to adapt are working in isms and we're going to have to do that again now but we will continue to need the support of the security council and of all parties to the conflict particularly the syrian government and the other main armed groups in the country to facilitate access because we still have a huge crisis and now without a crossing point across the border from iraq into northeast syria and without the crossing point into the northern part of the turkish operations area it's going to
6:05 pm
be a lot more difficult to meet those needs and we're going to have to quickly look at how we can reorganize our work. on to other news now mali where prayers are being held for anti-government protesters who've been killed in the capital bamako prominent religious leader mahmoud dicko who is spearheading the demonstrations is called on protesters to remain calm tensions remain though despite president it but him promising to form a national unity government and to dissolve the constitutional court this report is from charlotte that's. a solemn farewell for pretty. mr fake i'll see say this is a year old was killed on friday his family says he was shot in front of molly's national assembly. his mother was sick already when we broke the news to her she had a seizure the neighbors came out and we comforted her with words from islam.
6:06 pm
thousands of people gathered for friday's protests the 3rd since. they pushed their way into the grounds of parliament and the national television station then tires and barricaded roads in the capital police responded with tear gas. gunfire was heard 60 people were arrested. the protesters returned on saturday but in smaller numbers. their anger is directed at president abraham. demonstrations began in june after mali's constitutional court overturned election results and evolved to include frustrations over the economy alleged corruption and insecurity from groups. repression reinforces our determination and we will continue with our watch until the end of the regime of ip k. which today is accounts of a mali on saturday evening case a respondent in a televised address. to continue to do privilege i will continue to favor dialogue
6:07 pm
with all the active forces of the nation for the establishment of a consensual government tame composed of republican and patriotic groups and not the break is an demolishes of the country molly deserves basic the man. he promised to dissolve the pools at the heart of the disputed election results hold re-elections in contested areas and form a national unity government next week they're an important 1st step. and i think the idea is that the president is going to join with the opposition and have hopefully real dialogue. and and hopefully this will take place under the eyes of eco wasse the regional group that i think can actually help make sure that this moves forward smoothly. no opposition had earlier rejected can't is offered to reform the constitutional route and demanded the dissolution of parliament
6:08 pm
following friday's embraced 3 of their leaders were arrested and they had cooled his range and it's unclear where the president has his concessions will satisfy them and stop these scenes repeating. the dallas al-jazeera. is with us now he's in the nigerian capital abuja following events what do you make of the promises the government making with a baby enough to satisfy the protesters. well for for the time being the streets of bum acquire a calm except for the procession of 200-3000 people who came up for the funeral of those killed overnight in the violence that erupted at the residence of dickel. and for many money and the only thing that can solve the problem is to see him go a certain section of the opposition believe that. there is a need for dialogue in the sense that they should be a government of
6:09 pm
a transitional government that will discuss the mortalities of a running new elections. in mali before the new elections to usher in a new leadership and so it's difficult to say right now what is going to happen but for the time being things are calm on the streets of by michael however at the funeral today dick all called those who were killed in clashes with security forces a smart and 20023000 people gathered in front of his mosque to offer funeral prayers for the others have a lot of people escorted the bodies to the burial ground while others have stayed back in their words to protect the shake from any incident that may happen so the streets of the macaw come as the mom has called for supporters or protesters to be calm and also get organized amid the this was mentioned in charlotte's report
6:10 pm
the constitutional court has been the subject of a lot of frustration over election results in the past but that seems to have evolved that sort of frustration can you expand on that for us. well the frustrations for many mali and stuff has been going on for many for a very long time apart from the obvious problems in mali the situation in the north of the country where you have al qaida and other groups fighting government forces the united nations as well as civilian attacking civilians you also have the problem of economic problems facing ordinary mullions apart from that they have been grievances from previous elections the presidential election which members of the opposition believe that president abram booker kitted did not win and then suddenly in a poll they were meant to elections the constitutional court in both cases overturned such an resolves that the opposition thought they have won and as
6:11 pm
a result they demanded that the constitutional court be disbanded which president promised to do and now the because of the pro problems that have been piling up in mali most of these protesters are demanding that the president the government should just go away also asking for an interim government or a transitional government that can come and organize elections that can be respected by malia's on his own part president of bramber because kids are wanted a government of national unity that sort and involved members of the opposition but not the people he called criminals and people who are destroying the country so right now the constitutional court will be disbanded according to the promises made by president bramble because kater but it's not such an whether that will or so it's the feeling so many millions who are demanding the exit of president the bible because. of it it just keeping us up to date with the situation in mali as it moves
6:12 pm
thank you for that. to libya now where on social media appear to show forces loyal to the warlord khalifa haftar mobilizing towards the city of sirte the un recognized government shared those pictures it says there are armed vehicles as well as 2 russian made defense systems forces backing the tripoli government of been massing on the outskirts of so it is a gateway to major oil facilities it's very pleased to have darrent duel with us now from london principle russia analyst at the global risk consultancy group. thanks for your time let's talk about search 1st of all i mentioned just briefly of its importance there take us through exactly why. forces might be heading there. well i'm more of an expert on the russia side of it but my understanding is that surge is one of the gateways to both energy industry in libya as well as on the road to tripoli so this is you know
6:13 pm
a chance for her to regain the momentum after being on the back foot for much of the last couple of months but this is a really interesting development insofar as it shows how much rushes in gauging in libya is less about achieving very specific strategic goals in the country so much as it is maintaining a local client that it can use to leverage. to get a seat at the table when any peace deal is actually agreed and part of the problem that they've had with this is where. the hoth are as other allies have been trying to pressure him into accepting some sort of a broader peace deal between egypt recently he's been able to turn to russia to up their commitment which in turn has had allies of the libyan government. up in their commitments and egypt there for them again having to. commit to the civil war
6:14 pm
to a greater degree than it would otherwise the like so this whole you know clan. gain a seat at the peace table by engaging in the region to get skin in the game is one that's kind of backfiring as the local proxies are able to to clay their various patrons off against one another so you talk about the political side of things and the influence side of things what about the actual. battle side of things i mentioned that these pictures a showing russian hardware involved shouldn't that be that might should not be giving to the forces a big push. well it's difficult to say we'll have to see 1st off we don't know who's actually manning these or defense systems we don't know when the kind they have it was our it's our it's our let me let me put it another way the fact that khalifa haftar us forces had been moving towards tripoli since april of last year and in more recent times have been pushed back. very simple thinking to
6:15 pm
make things that if you've got a lot of russian firepower on your side that should be a huge advantage. i mean certainly the advantage it's keeping after on the board it's keeping him in the fight the question is whether this you know increase in russian commitment leads to it a countervailing increase in turkish commitments and western commitment for the libyan government at this point and you know russia can surge forces in there and it can search certain capabilities but ultimately you know the the other side has allies as well and it's not clear that any side in this case can can really bring the war to a definitive conclusion with a victory for one or the other side and again given that the ultimate goal for moscow's perspective at this point is to to gain a seat at the table and to ensure that its interests are respected when a peace deal is finally hammered out it's not really clear that it so it's backing
6:16 pm
have to are because they they want him to be the uncontested move of libya dharm until joining us today on the news out thank you so much for your time do appreciate it thank you. we will have to force a say they will keep blockading oil production and exports they say oil fields and terminals won't be allowed to reopen until there guarantees that revenue won't just go to the tripoli based government allies of have to close to export terminals and checked off major pipelines at the start of the year and ashwell oil corporation in tripoli said on friday that it had resumed some of its exports we are on the quarter past this news are here's what's coming up for you. we will find out why it was iran's supreme leader had to say about m.p.'s heckling the foreign minister last sunday. labeled as extremists but this rap group in the usa is calling for a policy and is demanding an apology. and in support we will hear why le bron james
6:17 pm
is declined to take part in the n.b.a.'s latest social justice campaign. the former u.s. special counsel robert muller has defended his russia investigation which led to the conviction of former trump advisor roger stone the u.s. president's stone a jail sentence saying he was the victim of a witch hunt but now in the washington post saying stone is still a convicted felon he was found guilty of witness tampering lying to congress and obstructing a congressional investigation more on this with mike hanna now in washington d.c. you would selling me on a 24 hours ago we'd have to wait and see what happened with this one because it wouldn't just end with the sentence being commuted well you were right on that one . indeed yes well robert miller statement is
6:18 pm
for robert muller scream of absolute fury one must remember that muller has not commented publicly on the substance of his investigation the only public comments he's made prior to this is that his report will speak to itself but clearly he's incredibly intense by president trump's commutation and the reasons for it president trump stating repeatedly that he felt that the report was a witch hunt as he's put it repeatedly he portrays roger stone as a victimized individual he portrays the investigation as one that was biased with people who were aiming at trump and had a political agenda in it or robert muller in this op ed has lashed out at all of these claims stating reemphasizing that roger stone was convicted in a court on 7 charges of felony he lied to congress you're tempted to tamper with
6:19 pm
witnesses and for president trying to say that the investigation was floored that led to his trial for robert muller is absolutely anathema so certainly robert mueller speaking loudly here in this op ed and here is a voice that would be listened to we he has maintained absolute silence in the past and significantly although he doesn't mention president trump by name in this editorial his last line of it says that any claims that his staff acted with anything other than the most integrity are completely false essentially calling the president a liar does any of this address the idea that the the criticism i guess that donald trump in his commuting the sentence is actually undermined what the justice system really is. robert muller doesn't address directly a part with his reference to how it undercuts the integrity of the men and woman
6:20 pm
who work within prosecutorial services but certainly that's been a wider interpretation of president trump's decision as we've heard from democrats in congress their absolute anger at the fact that president trampas commuted the sentence of a man who essentially lived to protect him according to a report now republicans have been largely silent only to reply publicans to date have spoken out against president trump's decision but still there's a lot of discussion in congress on both sides of the aisle in terms of what this actually means to the justice system one must remember that this administration may change whether or not it's in november of this year and what the damage that is done to the system of justice on which this country is built can be calculated far beyond a change in administration many people have left the justice department because of what they see as administrations by our said ministrations interference
6:21 pm
particularly that being carried out by the attorney general hand-picked by president trump so certainly this is a discussion that's going to be ongoing not in terms of the immediate future but in terms of what the lasting impact is going to be on the justice system of the united states mike hanna in washington d.c. thank you. iran's supreme leader has defended the foreign minister denounced as a liar by some hard line politicians just as a riff was interrupted several times last sunday when briefing the newly elected parliament on foreign policy including his negotiations with washington we have a bit to have known where is the home book relations with government should be in accordance with the law and shari'a questioning an investigation are you rights as it has been mentioned in the law but insulting and accusing someone without providing accurate information are not your right and some of them are forbidden more with us have begun to promises tensions been growing in this new iranian parliament. this all started when conservative politicians heckled and interrupted
6:22 pm
foreign minister divides and some of them called him a liar now these are scenes people are not used to seeing here but this is the most conservative parliament the country has seen since the revolution back in 1989 and it was voted in earlier this year in a voter turnout that was so low that it's never been that low since the revolution now conservative politicians here are upset at the state of the economy and the handling of the nuclear deal by president hassan rouhani and his reform is now of course this nuclear deal is borton to curb iran's nuclear program in exchange for sanctions relief donald trump pulled us out of that deal and imposed sanctions now conservatives have never made a secret of the fact that they're not really pleased with the deal they never were for it and they thought that the united states and europe could never be trusted now they've summoned a president hassan rouhani to parliament also on this talk of impeachment but fos the supreme leader is concerned he's looking at the bigger picture. economy is
6:23 pm
still in the u.s. sanctions are dealing with a coronavirus pandemic and there's been a number of suspicious incidents one there was an explosion at a suspected missile site and one at natanz nuclear facility so he's call for unity in the face of the u.s. and he said that the united states is used in economic approach. political and propaganda means to bring iran to its knees so he said to parliamentarians well you have a right to question ministers and government but behave and do it in a manner that is acceptable to the people but also show solidarity in the face of u.s. aggression. the a hughes says talks to resolve one of europe's most deadlocked territorial disputes are back on track between serbia and kosovo e.u. leaders facilitate the 1st meetings between kosovo's prime minister. and the serbian president alexander virtue which since the talks broke down 2 years ago so be it refuses to recognize costs of those declaration of independence the pair are
6:24 pm
set to meet face to face in brussels on thursday. people in poland are voting in a presidential runoff that could shake up political parties and affect relations with neighbors the office is largely ceremonial but the president can still veto parliamentary legislation or from sun you've got to go. this is a stark choice for voters in poland one which will shape its identity in europe and the rest of the world over the past this is the incumbent crowd pleaser and trade poland's president since 2015 an independent who has the support of the ruling law and justice party is seen as the stall wall of the government's message of nationalism and conservatism has backing of only traditional families and opposition to gay marriage adoption has put about all those with poles and others in the e.u. who fear he's taking them backwards but his populist agenda has won over many voters i think. he is a good candidate because he's
6:25 pm
a tried and true man for 5 years we know what he has done and who years and i think will be the same as in the previous term office. under total movie that andrea do what he says he tries to carry out even if not everything can be realized at a given time he says he'll do it and he does it i trust him as a politician and that's the president i want my andrea do to win the opposition believe they have everything to hope for and ruffle trust of ski the male of warsaw is regarded by many as liberal tolerant outward looking and being more closely aligned with the rest of the european union and independent of the judiciary. it's rescue when this is a change itself happening he will be he will not he's not a part of the current government he thought part of the current ruling party so the situation itself having just a parliament ruled by the this party by the rule of law and justice party and the
6:26 pm
president from the other side of the political spectrum will bring a sense of dialogue into this country again but lack of consensus and unity among poles was so polarized about how they want poland to be seen has been demonstrated by this election. if you look at the votes of those who are in the retirement age by overwhelmingly vote and these but if you look at the youngest voters very mostly vote for more liberal politicians so it seems that in the next years justice would have or would needs to change very politics because otherwise we would lose support this is being seen as one of the most important elections since the fall of communism in 1989 the result of which is likely to see poland loosen all tighten its ties with its neighbors son in iowa go. in the news ahead president obama from funny puts on a mosque as the u.s.
6:27 pm
registers another record high number of countries 19 in section the u.k. used to put an extra $900000000.00 into its border security in preparation for life after bragg's it and ronaldo keeps you in front of the rights to tell you the lead time for that's coming up later in sport which. it does of course are made horse and dry throughout much of the middle east not at all through taki the has been a fair amount of time out over the last few hours and in the last day or 2 there's been want to showers more of those as we go through monday that could be some heavy rain particularly along the eastern shores of the black sea across into georgia and eventually the showers on towards azerbaijan but to the south of there it is hot

6:29 pm
the coronavirus made a false us to change the full lot of head to head for the time being but that won't stop me doing robust interviews with challenging direct questions in a u.s. election year i'll be seeking accountability from both sides of the political spectrum on who's to blame for the horrific coronavirus doesn't tell them how to fix the us health care system and whether the war of words with china is entering a new and dangerous phase join me mad the awesome 1st special series of head to head on al-jazeera. a scandal that's rocked the nation to its core and exposed hundreds of court officials. in bride just to show you the most dangerous commodity to want to sometimes take a spot could go in and diffuse to blow up a custom of fine against judicial corruption as america called ireland i think i come out of my compass in an exclusive documentary al-jazeera and examine one man's extraordinary battle for justice in don at this time.

what about we've feels it and we never call it home and we never surrender. as about john and mania are accusing each other of launching military action along their border as a by john says 2 of its soldiers were killed i mean he denies acting aggressively and says its positions were attacked with artillery shells have been fighting over the now going to cut about region for decades. emergency crews in northern russia are using explosives to put out nearly 300 fires unusually warm weather has helped fires break out across siberia crews are using the explosives to knock down the burning trees so they can reach them more easily they're also seeding clouds a process that helps trigger rainfall most of the region is deemed too remote to bring under control and more than 3300 square kilometers of land is burning unchecked the united kingdom is planning a 900000000 dollar investment to improve its border security off to bragg says the
6:37 pm
government says the plan will create new border control posts and increase the number of stuff by 500 remember the u.k. leaves the e.u. customs union at the end of this year made by a car outside the houses of parliament in london the borders on the customs borders was such a contentious part of the whole briggs it negotiation process and they watched as the u.k. government promising no. more just to remind you we've only got about 6 months left before the breaks a transition period comes to an end officially the u.k. left the e.u. in january and it still has to cut some sort of trade deal with the e.u. before the end of the year and technically it needs to have that all done and dusted by july so these kind of big announcements all about setting this scene before ongoing negotiations with the e.u. to prove to the e.u. that the u.k. is willing to push ahead with its plans with or without a deal with the e.u.
6:38 pm
hence the timing of this announcement to spend $900000000.00 on bolstering britain's borders so paul it's like the huge ports in dover will see new infrastructure built in the land to avoid any kind of snarling along traffic jams or the border when the changes come into force we're talking about new i.t. systems and we're talking about $500.00 new border guards being employed also the plan is to phase all if they say in from the beginning of next year over a period of 6 months that has raised some concerns that the whole program could be ripe for exploitation by smugglers for instance or indeed they could well be trade disputes emerging during that transition period that will need to be solved before it's proven to be fully working converse the the e.u. plans to have its new border controls in place from the 1st of january but
6:39 pm
a much slower introduction from the u.k. navy talk about these sorts of things which are being announced as we get closer and closer to leaving immigrations another one this points based system is due to be an announcement on that one. that's right pretty to tell the home secretary will give more details on monday but we have a pretty good idea of the direction of travel just to remind you of course that immigration and controlling immigration was such a central in pivotal issue during the whole bronx it debate was very much the forefront of people's minds when they voted for many tightening immigration and leaving the e.u. all synonymous with each other they are one in the same or pretty vitale saying is that from the 1st of january next year whether you're from the e.u. or from outside the e.u. you will be treated equally based on a new points based immigration system in shorts you have to get 70 points to be
6:40 pm
allowed to work visa and permission to stay here and also get those points you need to be 1st to be able to speak a good enough english you need to have a job offer from a recognized employer you need to meet certain salary thresholds of more than around $35000.00 if you are a medical employer medical experts a doctor or nurse much needed of course to work in the national health service you can apply to work here by some power level visa process and graduates from british universities will be allowed to stay here for a period of 2 years after they graduate a lot of concern all a controversy and criticism about these plans largely form many businesses who are deeply worried about the loss of some low skilled laborers who come seasonally to work the fields or construction sites or to work in hospitality or shops let's not forget that the country is desperately trying to bounce back after months of long down the thought now of having to deal with significant changes to their workforce
6:41 pm
