that seems fire that was due to expire tonight for he wants to establish a 30 kilometer wide safe zone along the syrian turkish border from which kurdish forces would be excluded but the announcement came just as the kurds said that they've already pulled out of the border region here's what the leaders of turkey and russia said about their new agree to that issue and you got that and it was these solutions which in my opinion are very important crucial will allow a rather acute situation that has developed on the syrian turkish border to be result. if the promises are not kept by the u.s. our operation in northern syria will continue with greater determination we're still tracing these terrorists these terrorists should be repelled otherwise this process will never come to an end realestate the story now to turkey our correspondent dorian jones is standing by in istanbul good evening to you dorian so
11:03 pm
how do you read this agreement that we're seeing now coming out of sochi are we looking at turkey and russia are they coming together or do we see 2 powers that are still competing for influence in syria. well even russia and turkey are backing rival sides in the syrian civil war what we have seen in the last couple of years is. putin increasingly working together because there is a realisation that they have to work together to bring an end to this syrian civil war which is in all of their interests now this deal is another part of this process that was a potential flashpoint of turkish forces could ultimately get into a shooting war with the syrian regime forces further instability in syria but that deal this present deal does seem to have ended that threat it is part of a process of restoring stability to this area the fact that they now that the kurds
11:04 pm
are now beholden to withdraw from the from the border will be a key part of turkey's objectives in this operation and we will now see turkey russian forces on the ground in forcing a buffer zone as part of that process again bringing the 2 countries closer together but beyond that this cooperation is also working towards bringing an end to the civil war this is part of a long process and this agreement on the lines that these 2 countries have to work together to bring an end to the war and this process is seen as an important step in that process the president on one says that this deal will also facilitate returning syrian refugees to syria when and how is this expected to happen dorie. well that's a key part of his objective. pressure to get rid of these 3 and a half 1000000 refugees in his country and to this operation a turkey carried out that was part of this process they want to create a safe zone
11:05 pm
a 450 kilometers long 30 kilometers deep where the president said that they would send back 2000000 refugees now that process is on hold they have these 120 kilometer strip on that they call a control which is that it's consolidated under this deal with putin but the rest of the territory that's far from putin says that the return of refugees is part of the part part of the deal but it's part of a wider process involved united nations and crucially damascus. if you want to see these refugees return you have to start talking to them ask us up until now that's been a red line for the on the phone calls assad a butcher and only today assad referred to as a 3rd rate actor putin has a lot of work to do indeed he does in the story for us in istanbul tonight dorian thank you in the british parliament they gave him one and then they denied him another lawmakers backed prime minister or johnson's briggs bill tonight and then they rejected his fast track timetable for taking britain out of the european union
11:06 pm
this month it was the 1st time that parliament has ever backed brights a bill and it means that the legislation can move on to the next stage that's all well and good but losing the 2nd vote on the scheduling that means that boris johnson will not be able to meet that deadline of october 31st for brags that an election is now well on the cart's european council president says that he will advise e.u. leaders to grant britain's request for a break sit delay our london correspondent beard moss she followed the vote for us today in london. so 1st of all an important victory for boys johnson and b.'s broadly speaking agree to his deal with the european union and that's fatter than any government before him has ever come when it comes to leaving the e.u. but then quite dramatic turn of events m.p.'s do not approve of the timetable they
11:07 pm
feel that everything is too rushed that they don't have enough time to scrutinize the bill to scrutinize this agreement with the e.u. and to vote for it they fear that this is something that they can't rush through in a matter of days that this legislation is going to shape the future of the country for decades to come so what's the government now doing they are saying they're pulling the legislation they are 1st of all speaking to the european union but it's clear that that britain cannot leave the at the end of october because parliament has made clear that this is not going to happen the speculation is that now this will end in a general election that brought us johnson would do everything he can to get a general election to come about because he wants to have a majority so that when it comes to future legislation he can pass it easier in the houses of parliament when he has an actual majority in the house of parliament.
