a marvel to me that our russian colleagues can speak of ceasefires and political solutions in this chamber with a straight face when their own 4 planes have struck hospitals and the homes of children how can i respond to your accusations of the killing of the civilian population whatever i would say you don't listen you keep talking about targeted bombings of schools hospitals and refugee camps and what hard wouldn't that find a response that's a win win technique who will try to decode it whether it's true or not. a turkish military convoy has already been filmed crossing the syrian border a large line of tanks armored vehicles and supply trucks are reportedly moving towards the outskirts of the syrian army is currently trying to drive militants out of the province are tastier correspondent breaks down the conflict. turkey is part of the cease fire agreement had 3 main responsibilities one separate the

own shearling of the syrian armed forces civilian targets and the russian air base have continued but if you add a dog and you're watching the syrian military steamroll the rebels you armed and funded for years you'd be worried to worse watching hundreds of thousands of refugees flock to your border that has been an unfortunate side effect of the syrian operation so to stop that exodus at the one has threatened to do the one thing that could turn those hundreds of thousands into millions of refugees invade syria because humans are the. turkey has made all kinds of preparations to implement its operational plans and it will as in every operation we see we can come suddenly one night to put it more clearly operation. it is now a matter of time we will not leave little to the regime that still does not understand our country's determination in this matter and so those who encourage it

we never intend to shoulder the burden that the developments in this region will place on our country. thousands of turkish troops hundreds of tags and artillery pieces are being pumped into it and an army diplomacy thankfully is in overdrive but so far hasn't worked the turks have rejected all compromise they've demond asaad give up everything he has retaken the u.s. backing has been is important because there was a period a few months ago a very poor relations between washington and ankara and the russians of course for terry trying to take advantage of that turkey over to their side much more is off to a nato country could serve washington i think is realize the danger of turkey's getting away from a turn off from the western alliance completely so they are now giving him backing but as i said at the beginning it's a terrible mistake for turkey to think assad is going to fall at the stage they
3:06 am
should try and recognize the new realities of the situation and do what they promised to do and so much turkey and they zings syria potentially getting in a fight with russia isn't just the worst case scenario it would be a catastrophe of unimaginable proportions but tension attending a regional war global we all understand that and none of us wants to see it happen . well i'd say none of us had a very good conversation with president carter was i respect him the fact is that he's fighting on it led he doesn't want people to be killed by the thousands and hundreds of thousands quietly signing everyone's already hot tempers is the united states assuring turkey of support the modeling concessions from asaad that pretty much ensure talks will fail see we're in a strange situation with a booth closer to the end of the syrian war than we've ever been and we'll also

closer to the worst escalation this war has ever seen. the french president has vowed to battle what he calls islamic separatism in france manual mccrone made the claims while campaigning ahead of next month's local elections are to charlotte n.c. reports from paris. it was a long awaited speech from president outlining how his presidency will rally against political islam. we can advance in a credible way to fight against a political ideology this islam is separatism which is incompatible with freedom and equality incompatible with the indivisibility of the republic and the necessary unity of the nation 1st in the firing line is foreign interference corn has vowed to end a program that allows countries such as old jewry and turkey to send moms and teachers here to provide services without supervision this scheme in place since
3:08 am
the 1970 s. allows those foreigners to provide language and cultural lessons to help children maintain a link with their country of origin around some 80000 children attend these classes every year. i'm not comfortable with the idea of having women in many schools of the republic who can teach without the education system exercising the slightest control and we no longer have control over the programs they teach you cannot teach things that it clearly not compatible either with the laws of the republic or with history as we see it. instead mark on wants to have more trained on french soil there would also be an end to the hundreds of additional religious leaders who arrive in france during ramadan mosques will be funded in a transparent way we need to know where the money is coming from who uses it and why he said interesting lead this echoes a policy from his political rival marine le pen during that head to head in 2017

per mandate said this. plus extremist mosques identified by the minister the interior and prohibit foreign fund enough places of worship and their personnel strong words coming from the president or is it ringback just a last ditch attempt to woo voters ahead of difficult local elections in just a few weeks. always trying to do to shore up his position with the right wing electorate but also with some of the left of course the question of. the secular state in france is important right across the. relationship with parties on both sides of the spectrum. is important and he needs to make this sort of statement of municipal elections neutering those voters could be a double edged sword france is home to europe's largest muslim community there are
3:10 am
said to be around 6000000 here that's about 8 percent of the population and back in 2017 this community overwhelmingly voted for president he's already showing that he's moved away from those centrist ideologies that he once espoused when he outlined a tough stance on immigration another policy direct from the playbook of the pen so by grasping at ideas that some see as being from the hard right wing is he likely to lose voters from the left and from muslims but there are some areas fronts particularly some local municipalities some towns in areas where this is a concern for french voters and so what my call is doing the context of it is to try to reassure where there are law muslim communities muslim communities that the republicans still searching the values of the secular republic. the election
3:11 am
whether that will succeed or not remains to be seen in the opinion polls or not don't look like there were calls for a vote next month's elections are seen as being a referendum on president c. and on his party on the move could they signal the beginning of the end of march. paris. abuse at your peril that's the warning coming from the u.k. health service which is tightening its tolerance when it comes to unruly patients doctors can already refuse non-emergency care to aggressive or violent patients but the new rules that come into effect in april are much broader now all types of harassment bullying or discrimination will be covered by include sexist racist or homophobic comments the n.h.s. says any abuse of staff has to be taken seriously. we will not tolerate the source physical or verbal against his colleagues still of all violence is all assault and

hate crimes against in the gist of must be investigated with care compassion diligence and commitment under the new agreement police are also being handed more power to deal with crimes against medical staff according to a national health survey last year alone a quarter of all staff were subjected to at least one case of harassment as adding pressure to staff already under strain 4 out of 10 now complain of feeling unwell because of stress at work social activist lea jasper and andrea walker a columnist for the new york observer debated the issue. the n.h.s. is now saying they won't treat people who are overweight they won't treat people who smoke they won't treat people who have made certain comments they won't treat people who provide that you cannot reasonably expect these people to pay for the h.s. care that they do not receive so what you must do is also excuse these people from paying the elements of tax that would go towards the n.h.s. i think that when you look at the n.h.s.
3:13 am
stuff they're overwhelming concern is to provide support to help to people in need so they do. prepared to put up with quite a lot i think where it really crosses the line is all severe verbal and physical abuse think that that is a major concern we need to we need to be sure that we're not going to end up in a situation whereby people who've maybe made a little bit of a joke on the table to be treated but on occasion it can go too far and it can cross the line and not lie is quite broad i think but there are there are piece of terminology particularly around. on sexuality that we deemed acceptable say 203040 years ago which is now considered all the excitable and i think it's extremely important particularly with older people who might be on the web site. it's a the they are fairly treated you never hear people complaining about being called
3:14 am
colored and stuff like does particularly from the elderly and again cast out for perfectly sensible enough to say ok did oh worry about it they'll ignore that stuff it's not the stuff that is the cause of the majority stress in the pews i mean what's incredibly frustrating about this is that we live in a system in this country where you can drink 10 pints of lager you know yourself in some form of misadventure shouts abuse and has staff be treated you know i would like to see a situation where the cost of the treatment is challenged but potentially an equally i think if people are turned away then i think that they should be able to make their own private provision. ukraine band film starring ukraine's president i'll tell you why after of a short break. what
3:15 am
politicians do something. they put themselves on the line and they get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president. or somehow want to. have to go right to be press as a white woman for 3 of them or can't be good. i'm interested always in the waters in that. question. we're still in an era of resource colonialism again this is a big risk and the one big thing that could really inhibit the kind of electric vehicle revolution that a lot of us want to see is if we can't resource the battery components in a sustainable ethical way then it's not going to be a successful revolution. in

i think there is been somewhat of a. mixture of politics. that that some sense cause more challenges than what they should because most of these relationships are driven more by common interest and common knowledge transfer not by tight some type of espionage of some type of stealing of ideas the challenges the world faces are driven by global people working together collectively decide solve called and problems and this really is a science and engineering is above the poor little politics of any one nation or several groups of nations many of the world's problems could be solved much more quickly if politics were were outside of and not mixed with the scientific aspirations of many countries. lastly we bring you some world news in brief 9 people have been killed in 2 drive by shootings and western germany shots were

author of fed up and former fed insider danielle. so danielle this is the really the big question of the day right now beyond the balance sheet everything else expects and is expected to be quite unremarkable so how and when will the fed taper treasury bill purchases because if they suddenly the liquidity just isn't there anymore that really would split the market and bring us right back to square one it really does and the fed has backed itself into a corner with the moves that it's made i hear that the willingness and i hear the desire on the part of policymakers to rein this in but i don't think that the market's going to allow it just because every single day pushes the fed further out on the spectrum and the fed is saying april the minutes reiterated april we will have to see you know if we get through tax season and the fed is truly able to unplugged this because to me it's a monster of their own making. we want to move to the outlook for inflation and
