3:01 pm
a band independence referendum the former head of the capital and government calls the sentences and atrocity of spanish authorities push for his arrest. and poland's willing conservative secure a huge electoral victory the law and justice party is set to increase its majority after implementing reforms its critics call anti democratic plus crunch time yet again on bread said. going to be it was a few moments i think. you citizens working in the u.k. many of them in the food industry say that they are worried about deportation as the country faces more brags that deadlines. i'm sorry kelly welcome to the program turkish backed forces are continuing their push into syria as fighting continues along the. 200 kilometer stretch in the north
3:02 pm
of the country in the last few hours the turkey backed free syria army is reported to have taken the city of t. yob fighters there have been removing flags of kurdish forces in the area to raise their own flags it's part of a quarter native push directed by the turkish government after american forces started to withdraw from the region. and there to one has indicated that turkish troops are also ready to launch an assault on the syrian city of men bid which is held in the west of the country by syrian kurds turkish media reports say that the country is forces were preparing for an operation on men bridge and were positioned at the city's edge having pushed into the area in the last 24 hours it's so let's get the very latest now from our correspondent dorian jones who is joining us from istanbul dorian what does everyone want to achieve with this planned attack on man bench. well man beaches are
3:03 pm
crucial to teach equally important city in northern syria it sits upon a vital motorway that connects northern syria with iraq and ultimately with iran and beyond that it is the gateway to aleppo syria's 2nd city so all sides in the syrian conflict have been true striving to get control of mom bridge now that the u.s. have withdrawn it is now seen as possible leaves the turks can now seize it and present one speaking today said that this is returning to its rightful owners and who he means by that are the syrian arab forces that have been fighting the regime while now allied with turkey the syrian free army and. taking hold of man beach as part of his wider strategy of returning between one and 2000000 syrian refugees back to syria many of them with the opposition to the syrian regime now the syrian regime damascus to term and to take back money bitch and crucially the syrian kurds who are currently holding it as part of the deal have said that they will hand this
3:04 pm
over to damascus forces this brings a likelihood that syria and turkish forces could be heading for a potential confrontation and you know you've highlighted the some of the dynamics that are shifting there on the ground dorian you know the fact that the kurds now have reached this agreement with the syrian government how is that changing era once approach to thank. you. well there for a moment one is saying that in this business as usual in fact it does seem that turkey now are further ramping up their operations i think they believe that the window of opportunity could be closing as they aware that this deal with the damascus forces does bring the risk of a confrontation between turkish and syrian forces and that is something ancora will be wary of particularly as the key backer of the damascus regime is moscow and moscow is also an ally with turkey now uncle will be wary of getting the wrath of moscow given the fact in the past these 2 countries went to crisis over syria but
3:05 pm
now it seems that moscow is the key player here who is allies with both sides it is now coming needs to come up with a solution not a voice of confrontation with its 2 key allies in the region dorian jones but the view from turkey thank you dorian. meantime the european union has condemned turkey's military intervention in syria max hall for men in luxembourg were e.u. foreign ministers have been meeting to discuss that matter max the e.u. foreign ministers they've they've concluded their meeting what did they agree on in their efforts to stop this turkish offensive. one point you just mentioned to me and that is probably the most important point that you can find in that declaration that was released by the e.u. foreign ministers is they condemn the military action that's one point the other point that is no worthy here is that they commit or the member states commit to strong national positions regarding their arms expert policy to turkey now it
3:06 pm
sounds good but don't confound it with an e.u. wide arms embargo because it's not the same thing this leaves it up to the member states to do whatever they want regarding turkey. and is that a strong or rather weak signal would you say toward turkey. if you look at where they came from and what some countries wanted for example friends want to economic sanctions and then we have talk about an e.u. wide arms embargo this is rather weak especially if you consider that even this position was in doubt because the u.k. wanted it watered down even further we understand that federico the e.u. chief diplomat was strongly opposed to that to put it nicely and so in the end they agreed on this but if you ask me you know i want to scale of one to 1010 being the strongest possible signal this is a week 3 to 4. and max you know when we look at the number of factors that are at
3:07 pm
play here i'd just like to drill in specifically it to 21 of them what could this mean for the current agreements with turkey for example the migration deal. given how you know relatively weak this is and given the fact that it most likely won't change anything on the ground they probably did not provoke the ire of turkeys or won and that was of course something that many here had in mind because if he gets to agri it's been it's been something that's been talked about over the last months actually he might not honor the e.u. turkey migrant deal anymore which keeps a large part of the migrants that fleece syria out of the european union and that topic remains political dynamite in the e.u. so this is one of the top priorities of the ministers here also to get the deal in tact and you can bet at least i'm not going out on a limb here 5 say that that played a role in the fact that this this is only a condemnation and not an e.u.
3:08 pm
wide arms embargo or even economic sanctions in luxembourg and that's all fine and luxembourg thank you max. while the fighting is for now affecting mostly northern syria it is also spilling over into turkey our correspondent yulia han has this report on turkish towns that have been hit by the shelling. in the turkish border town of. a public outpouring of grief. the women mourn the death of their village chief he and 2 other men were killed in a mortar shelling an apparent reprisal attack from across the border in syria. we want this war to stop nobody should die no soldiers no civilians we just want peace. of course we're scared we're scared for the whole country for turks for
3:09 pm
kurds for everyone no one should be killed. and you are never. people show us where the victim died. within a radius of 20 meters traces of bomb fragments. windows walls the hills battered by shrapnel her or her. i don't think it came from not but maybe from over there i don't know but it's from a bomb. similar story can be heard in many turkish border towns. if people believe the war is just across the border in syria they know better now. you're going where still the mayor. supports the turkish a friend he claims the fighting for. many term governor here and our
3:10 pm
caller we are hosting 125000 syrians you might be able to imagine how difficult that is we want to save their own to resettle the 3500000 refugees that have become a burden for turkey over the past 8 years but europe occasionally spent a little money but we pay the real price syrians to go back to their homes. in. the area northeast syria that is supposed to become a safe zone is anything but. for days the turkish army and allied syrian opposition fighters have clashed with kurdish militia and while they are busy fighting each other there are concerns that either geodes which are already defeated in the area might be able to regroup. international criticism of the turkish military campaign and growing the united nations radio offensive his course more than 100000 civilians to flee but the consequences have also been dramatic on this side of the

announced demonstrators condemning the court decision to slap long jail on the politicians and back to the path you're going to get in court just want to punish nothing else we don't like go down the radical social grace with europe would help but they didn't nothing. thank you preen quote gave it that on monday morning the former vice president of the catalonia region. sentenced to 13 years in prison for sedition and misuse of public funds. the politicians were handed sentences of between 9 and 12 years i think prosecutors had been calling for sentences of up to 25 years. the convictions are over their role in an independence referendum in 2017 which the regional government carried out despite pain constitutional court deeming it illegal beforehand. that it led to violent clashes at the time.
3:14 pm
today's verdict have already exacerbated tensions in catalonia the end hundreds movement says it's a low and a mass mobilization over the next few days. to poland where the country's really conservatives have secured a bagle election when the long justice party is projected to have enough seats in parliament to govern alone with nearly all votes counted from sunday's ballot the right wing party has backed judicial and media reforms that true criticism from brussels for roading the vault of law. whereby the reason for another time in power for poland's conservative nationalist nor and justice party only appears. said that me well that struggle started we had 4 years of hard work ahead of us i. thought 5 because poland must continue to evolve and improve.
3:15 pm
so we must maintain our credibility which you must ensure that no one who poland has any doubt that what we are doing is good genuine and responsive. to their social welfare programs anti immigrant policies and social conservatism a popular with many polish people but the biggest opposition bloc says that divisive. people want cooperation they want us to show that we are able to overcome the splits that are. in our country people don't want poland to be divided into parts people don't want their hearts broken because poles are not able to understand each other we're the ones who are promoting cooperation. the smaller party is also made against a left wing coalition is back in parliament and the far right exceeded poland's national voting threshold and will also get seats. i but the big winners are the lauren justice party during the campaign they promised to raise
3:16 pm
the minimum wage and not to grant rights to gay people it's this and judicial reforms that have drawn new criticism it says the party is weakening the rule of law and undermining poland's democracy. for more i am joined now from polish death boyd tracks a monthly here in studio so what does this mean in the end for democracy and rule of law in the country well. shouldered poland korean democratic country however i believe that the democracy in poland is under pressure because the peace and justice party in poland is taking control over. many independent institutions like the judiciary or the media which are there to control the executive and what the collection means and what the successor of law and justice party means i believe this process of taking control over almost every think will advance it
3:17 pm
will proceed because this is what the ruling party wants to keep it wants to have the control over almost everything in the country and it will i believe lead to some more tensions where for example european union european commission which does one doesn't want to go happen in poland given that those tensions you know have been really apparent with the european union. why is this party so popular and have voter turnout you know greater than 8 percent as the exit polls suggest what is behind this we think victory and wonder party or you know poor and very polarized country i think we may compare it a little bit to the situation in the united states with the democrats and republicans if somehow similar in poland and below and justice party who also introducing this program i would call poland 1st fighting for polish economy and
3:18 pm
giving back dignity to the polish people but the most important thing is. that of living in poland has really improved in the recent years the economy runs really good in poland and this is the 1st party up to 99 which. can prevent money now giving money to the people so i believe. don't much need or don't want to change something right now because the level of the standard of living in both the restaurant has increased and. thank you thank you. the u.k. government has reaffirmed its commitment to delivering bread save by october the 31st in the queen's speech delivered a short while ago the government laid out its priorities including the aim of achieving a new partnership with the european union that's rooted in free trade but in the
