forces would be excluded. the kremlin had predicted long and difficult negotiations perhaps that's why the meeting was particularly friendly organized extra nice weather for you 6 and a half long hours of negotiations between vladimir putin and air to one mostly in private the hardest thing to decide was high big this so-called security zone should be and who controls it. in a very long discussions we have succeeded in finding a solution which in my opinion is very important and promising. it is the solution for the very complicated situation that the turkish syrian border. the main outcome is that russian military police and syrian border guards are to work together during the cease fire to ensure that syrian kurdish forces retreats russian and turkish troops will take control of a buffer zone 10 kilometers wide. had demanded 35 kilometers.
syrian refugees will move into the areas that are to be cleared of terrorists. to facts around 1000000 people in. turkey and russia will be hoping for international help in refugee resettlement but a german proposal to establish an international safe so when was not considered in the sochi talks. you need europeans for another unnecessary big player in a situation that's very difficult anyway and then you add in some strangers i don't think russia wants that the fewer partners the better. the sochi deal will enhance britain's role in the region even aired to one had to accept that in the search for solution to the syria conflict there was no way of the russian president. so are russia and turkey coming together are they still competing for influence in
syria d w correspondent dorian jones has more from istanbul on what's been agreed even though 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 the syrian civil war which is in their all of their interests now this deal is another part of this process that was a potential flashpoint a 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 and now that the kurds are now beholden to withdraw from the from the border will be of 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 in the united kingdom the future course of bricks it remains uncertain that's after the conservative government faced 2 crucial votes on the new withdrawal agreement negotiated by prime minister boris johnson after a day of tense debate mr johnson managed to win his 1st vote in the house of commons since becoming prime minister but not everything went his way. more. 6 this was the moment boris johnson had been waiting for. the our eyes to the right $329.00 notice to the left $299.00
so the eyes have it the ayes have it speaker john bercow announcing that the u.k. parliament had in principle accepted mr johnson's new withdrawal agreement with the e.u. but minutes later this happened. the guys to the right $308.00 the news to the left $322.00 so the notice having the neighbors having parliament wasn't in any rush and rejected the prime minister's plan to debate the bill over only a few days work with us all of us. to agree on a reasonable timetable and i suspect this house will vote to debate scrutinise and i hope amend the details of this bill that would be the sensible way forward that she offered the prime minister wasn't convinced tonight so i must express my disappointment to the house has again
a very teach for delay rather than a trying to a bill that would have been guaranteed that the u.k. would be in a position to leave the e.u. on october 31st with a deal and we know mr johnson said he would pause the legislation until the e.u. members decided whether to grant the u.k. more time potentially until january 31st in the e.u. council president donald tusk has already said he would recommend the other member states give the u.k. the extension it has asked for. until they reach a decision on what happens next is anyone's guess. now to some of the other stories making news around the world. protests continue in bolivia over worries of vote tampering in the country's presidential election opposition groups of call for a nationwide general strike after electoral authorities seem set to hand another term to long term president evo morales another formal tally of sunday's election
