1:01 pm
just barely and he loses his majority. i'm sumi so much going to thank you for joining us we start with a meeting that there could decide the fate of turkish president of syria's kurds a turkish president edge of temporary one is meeting with russian president vladimir putin in sochi for talks on northern syria turkey launched an offensive there 2 weeks ago to clear the area of kurdish militias and carve out a so-called safe zone a u.s. brokered cease fire to give the kurds time to withdraw is due to expire late on tuesday we have more now on the region in northern syria and the players who want a stake in it. it's a fight to a key had been spoiling for for a while. rancorous determined to expel kurdish led forces from an area close to its
1:02 pm
southern border on the syrian fighters helping turkey on the ground told e.w. they will stop at nothing to make sure the operations succeeds. we will not stop no matter what international decisions pressured nothing will stop us we're moving forward we came for this mission so we have to finish it out of the. president added once a serious kurds are a threat to turkey security he also wants the area they have controlled up to now the resettlement of some 2000000 syrian refugees currently in turkey. ankara was emboldened to launch its offensive after u.s. president donald trump ordered most american troops to withdraw from the area troops who up until that point had fought alongside the kurds to defeat so-called islamic state. after being abandoned by the americans the syrian kurds then made an
1:03 pm
agreement with their former enemies. the syrian regime of bashar al assad and his russian backed asked. that this was a huge victory for damascus and moscow as it allowed them to start calling the shots in a part of syria that had been out of their reach since the start of the civil war 80 years ago. but it also raises fears of a nightmare scenario a clash between syrian and turkish troops. and analysts say the wider implications of the situation are also worrying it to strengthen the hands not just of the acid regime and russia but also of another us at 1st 3 iran and left a vacuum at the heart of one of the longest running complex in the middle east. for more on the story we can go to our correspondent yury rich chateau he joins us from moscow hi yuri what can we expect from this meeting of presidents everyone and putin. well like turkey russia is directly involved in military activities in syria
1:04 pm
both countries have troops and heavy weapons on the ground we saw it in the report putin and. like to stress that they are very close partners but the thing is that russia has completely different interests in syria to turkey moscow supports president assad uncorrupt wants us not to go moscow has support of the kurds in the past and cairo wants to fight them therefore both presidents putin and i don't have a lot of coordination if they want to avoid a situation in which their soldiers and are facing each other in battle also the turks a recent military offensive hasn't gone down well in moscow so both presidents are going to discuss the withdrawal of the kurdish militia from the border with turkey that's why today's meeting between you and putin in sochi is so important for both of them you're in germany defense minister has actually made a suggestion as well for the future of northern syria let's listen to what she had
1:05 pm
to say in an interview with g w. my recommendation is that we establish an internationally controlled security zone in cooperation with taki and russia. and. this security czar and would seek to resume the fight against terror and against isis which currently has come to a standstill. it would also ensure that we stabilize the region so that rebuilding civilian life is once again possible. so that those who have fled can also return voluntarily. ok so your ear heard the suggestion there from the german defense minister but is an internationally controlled security zone something russia and turkey would actually welcome. well assuming probably yes i think so at least when it comes to russia and at least in terms of the kremlin official line reportedly moscow would
1:06 pm
study jim an idea to create an internationally controlled security zone in north and syria moscow has long made a big deal over wanting more international coordination in syria so far with americans and the russian minister of defense often complain to the u.s. didn't participate now is that the americans gone that could mean call duration coordination with turkish troops and on the ground and political called a nation with europe. russia really has positioned itself as a power broker in the situation what does russia want to see for the future of syria well certainly russia want to leave syria any time soon i think and in spite of all the statements president putin has made promising the complete withdrawal of russian armed forces from syria on the contrary what russia now can do is not only to deliver essential military aid for president assad but also to delete it to deliver real political support moscow is attempting to cost
1:07 pm
itself as a mediator in this complicated conflict it's a complicated conflict as you said yuri so what do ordinary russians think of moscow's involvement in syria. well look russia's role in syria is increasingly viewed critically here at home according to official figures russia has lost at least 112 soldiers and continues to spent plenty of money there and that's why many russians according to polls view their country's involvement in syria very critical and now only a minority supports the kremlin's policy because the military operation has been going on so long and the conflict in syria soon is still so far from ending this is a messy war air strikes russian asterix mean civilian casualties there is no peace in syria the islamists from the so-called islamic state are still not defeat it. right. bringing us up to date there thank you yuri and you can watch our

1:11 pm
was worshiped being off to a goddess of the suns and at 1 pm probably with some power of the gods involved the sun came out because the rest of the day we spent in rather poor in rain at 1 pm the actual ceremony started it only lasted half an hour in the presence of more than 2000 guests from over 170 countries the emperor was wearing a dark orange roll a symbol for the rising sun a symbol for japan and his wife empress massacre was wearing a traditional. not all to guests who were actually able to be around a quarter of ceremony was taking place so they had to be in other rooms where they could follow the ceremony on big screens and right now there's a state banquet taking place a state dinner with $900.00 guests and of course because we're in japan traditional japanese food is being served to so-called. christian very very extensive
1:12 pm
ceremonies that we noticed also the beginning of a new era known as that is beautiful harmony what's said been to the people of japan. well of course it's enough power to fill his role but he made it very clear from the beginning that he lie he would like to step into the footsteps of his father a key hito 10 not emperor means heavenly ruler and already akihito wanted to be closer to his people and now he is actually planning to do the same thing he already showed. his sway of being closer to the people japan was hit by a very violent typhoon last week heikki peace and he was traveling to the affected regions even before prime minister sheen so obviously to talk to the people or to be in contact with his citizens how important is that to the people what does role
1:13 pm
does the emperor play in japan. well he has no political power a dog but he's still a very strong symbol he's he's a symbol for state and unity and the japanese colleague of mine explained it to me very well he said why prime minister sheen so obviously government shows the harshness of japan also towards other countries. the emperor represents more like the kindness the law for his citizens he actually represents he's like he said like a bumper i talk to young people i wanted to know from them i wanted to know from them what the empress the means for them personally they said well nothing for us personally but whenever we have news from the imperial family it really creates a deep or a deep feeling of inner peace correspondent catalina french thank you so much.

anti-semitism in sports germany's largest jewish sports club says it's getting worse and action is urgently needed. but 1st canadian prime minister justin trudeau is one a 2nd term in office but only narrowly has the liberal party lost its majority and will now have to lead a minority government the election has been described as the toughest test so far for trudeau here's more. it was a close election but justin trudeau and his liberal party retains power to most of the canadians it is being the greatest allor of my life to serve you for these past 4 years then tonight you are sending us back to work for you. we did this is going civility seriously and we were close for you for your favorite movies and for your future. 4 more years in which governing will be harder for
1:16 pm
trudeau his party lost the majority in monday's election and now has to form a minority government to pass legislation it will need the support of smaller parties but it was an ugly campaign last minute help came from former us president barack obama who endorsed trudeau i was proud to work with justin trudeau as president he's a hardworking effective leader who takes on big issues like climate change the world needs his progressive leadership now and i hope our neighbors to the north supports him for another term. as young voters all over the world get more politicized canada's young activists also have clear expectations from trudeau. and young canadians have more students than they have and. they're making less money our lives are generally more difficult than the older generation their parents are interested in so we want to be in our government and actually do something you know
1:17 pm
something should plans to provide and his 2nd term you are sending our liberal team back to work back to ottawa 1 with a clear mandate we will make life more affordable we will continue to fight climate change we will get guns off our streets and we will kill you 1st. promises he can only achieve if he makes friends across the aisle. british prime minister boris johnson is continuing his push to pass his european union withdrawal deal through parliament today lawmakers are expected to vote on whether they support the deal in principle a 2nd vote is also likely on a possible timetable for debate and any amendments to the deal johnson is expected to face a strong challenge from opponents across the political spectrum. and let's go to correspondent shot of parts in london for the latest so 2 votes today as we said on
1:18 pm
the withdrawal bill and then also the timetable for debate what are boris johnson's chances of winning these votes. well you might be surprised but johnson's chances of getting this vote through of getting the deal through are actually very good he might get the majority in parliament and it's symbolic sums up that parliament would give him there but of course there is a but in those as always and one is that the opposition parties will try to amend the bill they will try to bring in their own ideas on how they want to look like that could pose as a major hurdle to the government and the 2nd one as you already mentioned is that one on the time table because boris johnson wants to push this bill through in just 3 days so a very short period of time for $110.00 pages of complex legal text and we have to say leaving the european union that is one of the most complex constitutional events that ever happened in the u.k.
1:19 pm
and parliamentarians are saying we can't do it in 3 days we need longer time so this could slow down the process one m.p. even this morning said look we discussed a bill on the ban of wild animals and circuses longer than we are going to discuss this bill so this is not going to work for us all right so she wanted to force johnson fails on one or both of these votes today what does that mean. pretty much that we have back to square one we've been there before of course theresa may last withdrawal agreement vote in parliament 3 times already so this all seems familiar if that were to happen tonight and that means 2 things 1st of all it is most likely that we will see an extension beyond that deadline of october 31st and so the u.k. would leave on october 31st wouldn't leave the european union and the 2nd thing is that i think most likely would see fresh elections somehow because really the
1:20 pm
numbers in parliament need to need to be shaken up to go over the deadlock to get over that deadlock. parts in london for us thank you for your insights. now following several recent cases of racial abuse and international soccer germany's largest jewish force club is now calling for more to be done against anti-semitism the club's manager says team members are facing a clear increase in hostility and he's calling for concrete action to be taken including appointing a commissioner on anti-semitism in sports. be frank 30 is the biggest jewish sports club in germany the e.u.'s team has a cup match today but anti semitism plays a role here even for these youngsters mcabee players come from a wide range of backgrounds christian muslim atheist only about a 3rd of them. nonetheless they face hostility.
1:21 pm
to kids and worse the typical slang. and i only began to hear these things from my son after he switched to my combi here patiently his insults at school. were in an age in which it's happening more. just recently conflict escalated during a match with mccartney's under nineteen's the result a mass brawl police needed 9 patrol cars to restore order a copy manager alan meyer says the recent anti-semitism is coming increasingly from one group. germany it's mostly opponents with muslim arab backgrounds who in the last 2 to 3 years really have been attacking us swearing about us calling us names . you know frankfurt's university of applied sciences has researched the topic she says there's been an increase in anti semitism among
1:22 pm
various social groups and is calling for the soccer world to crack down. i think it's very important to send an absolutely clear signal in this respect even to the extent of canceling games as long as no action is taken it looks like things are not so bad. the soccer federation of hessen has only registered 2 incidents of anti-semitism in the last season but alan meyer believes that many cases go unreported he wants action. information on anti-semitic incidents to be properly gathered and for there to be an appropriate response at the same time we need to build support structures for these associations and sports clubs through a commissioner of anti-semitism in sports. the soccer association is open to these ideas even as a lot is already being done to solve the problem instead of just using punishment it also teaches german jewish history. already tackling this
1:23 pm
problem for. founders about the history and the extent of the problem and frank educational center for example in order to enlighten them about the past. lucian. back to my car by the e.u.'s team has ended their game and they won 10 to one the campaign against anti semitism however will continue into overtime. now the 17th century dutch artist rembrandt is considered one of the greatest visual artists of all time and certainly the most important in dutch art history his spanish contemporary diego velazquez was one of the most important painters of the spanish golden age the 2 master's contrasting work is now on show at a landmark exhibition and abstinence rights museum part of a series of events marking the 350th anniversary of rembrandt's death. the
1:24 pm
highlights of rembrandt year 29 seen at the rocks museum in amsterdam here were the world is watching the restoration of rembrandt's iconic the nightwatch life streamed across the globe it's a painting that every child in the netherlands knows but it's here and i'm sadam that rembrandt meets another master painting diego velazquez. alaska's lived in staunchly catholic spain in the service of the king rembrandt lived in the dutch republic where citizens had a say they never crossed paths in their lifetime and all the countries were war with each other the old masters shirts similarities says i've never seen a self-portrait where the eyebrows are raised as high as in this painting by rembrandt he poses a question to the audience and it's certainly directed at us who am i what's the role that i play then when i look to the other side to velasquez he painted
1:25 pm
a portrait of a very small man for philips who took news from these tiny men with no court jesters on to philip the 9 but he doesn't paint them ridiculously as whole and knows this is a portrait whereas because it takes people as seriously as rembrandt on the sets. painters represent the golden years of the countries in the 17th century the recurrent themes of power love or faith and of course realism are woven through both men's work. exhibition also juxtaposes works of all the dutch and spanish artists of the same period but no other comparison is as exciting as that between rembrandt and valorous case both revolutionized the art of the time. because we know that the last kiss was the friend of the king in this respect he had many freedoms a month on the other hand there was rembrandt to also felt obligations to the rich people who gave you money later he faced bankruptcy and moved into
1:26 pm
a slum and that's what he said he felt much more comfortable than because he no longer had to dial down to people being you know off. before. the last kids died over worked at the age of 61 rembrandt dying aged 63 impoverished and destitute but both remain on folk often. right you're watching news of get a reminder of our top stories at this hour turkish president. is in russia for talks about the syrian conflict turkish forces moved into northern syria 2 weeks ago to clear the area of kurdish militias and to carve out a so-called safe sound a u.s. brokered cease fire to give the kurds time to withdraw is due to expire late on tuesday and canada's prime minister justin trudeau is one a 2nd term but he's now expected to form a minority government that meets his liberal party will have to rely on the support
