some kind of an agreement to the finances minister meeting tomorrow. a exon strategy to common strategy to find crisis. >> translator: it is not only the greek population and the greek people here that have a say. it is the other 18 countries. we have one common currency. we want to keep this currency and therefore all sides need to be responsible and show solidarity. >> the summit will be without a popular figure for the past few months. yanis varoufakis the high profile finance minister resigned today. saying they would prefer he not be part of the continuing talks. the greek banks will need additional money from the ecb in order to lift capital controls and reopen. jonah hull is in athens with the details. >> reporter: on this day there
is one sentiment above others on the streets. >> i'm proud of my people. >> yes, i feel proud for my people. but also, confused. because we say no to the proposal of europe. we want a better proposal. >> reporter: but pride in greece's defiance of its international lenders is not enough to avoid the fall. the banks still shut, their closure officially extended to thursday if the earliest, but even then it's no guarantee that they can open then, or that the 60 euro per day per person can be sustained. meanwhile a wider wokout for greece is underway. greek prime minister alexis tsipras with other leaders will provide more work arounds on
thursday. be euclid be tsakalotos replaces yanis varoufakis. >> they will be negotiating with people like this, wolfgang schaeuble, the german finance minister unlikely poster boy hated by many greeks as the architect of their pain, sucking their blood it's said for the past five years. hardly the basis for getting along now. something i put to a greek minister. >> there is no way within the week we cannot exit these very, very dangerous moment not only for greece but for europe. what will that take? it will take neutral compromises. it will take putting at the heart of the negotiations, the
good of the people of europe and of the european union the stability of the european union above other kinds of priorities and interests that prevail now. >> meanwhile the drip drip drip of cash from the banks continues. making a bank rescue harder by the minute. >> translator: people want the banks to open and they want a peaceful life and that can only be achieved as part of europe. >> i wouldn't say i'm really positive. i hope they find the solution because i'm really terrified and i don't know what is going ohappen tomorrow. >> reporter: greeks are proud and by saying no more many will feel they've won their dignity back. but they may not be allowed to enjoy the moment for long. jonah hull, al jazeera athens. >> a country of spain which after greece has one of the weak weakest countries in europe,
spain's economy is set to benefit if greece stays part of the euro zone. a lower euro helps developing countries in spain and portugal. here is the finance minister in the wake of the greek vote. >> i believe in view of the public some errors have been made. but i also say it's inevitable that greece make reforms. we have already put them in place and already emerged from recession. >> one of the examples is spain which exited the eu bailout program last year. spain's unemployment rate is nearly 24% the highest in the eu after greece. and again a depressed euro would help spain even if a depressed euro is something that stronger companies like germany are trying oavoid. president obama today made a very high profile trip to the pentagon.
mr. obama discussed the strategy against i.s.i.l. jamie mcintire joins us from the pentagon, what was the significance of the president's message? >> the president came here to get a review of how the antii.s.i.l. strategy was working, the parts that he said could use some improvements but didn't announce any changed initiatives. there is still no consideration of putting u.s. troops in a combat role on the ground in either iraq or syria. after an hour and a half meeting with his top civilian and military advisors at the pentagon president obama made a rare appearance in the pentagon briefing room. flanked by his defense secretary of state ash carter and key personnel, he stated, the i.s.i.l. defeats.
>> can and will be defeated. indeed we're intensifying our efforts against i.s.i.l.'s base in syria. continuing to target the oil and gas facilities that fund so much of their operations. >> over the weekend the u.s. unleashed a wave of air strikes against i.s.i.l. positions in iraq and syria which the u.s. military called its largest deliberate engagement in syria so far. of the more than 3 dozen air strikes conducted july 4th two-thirds were in syria in and around ak ca, raqqa i.s.i.l.'s de facto capital. in other words to confine i.s.i.l. to the northern syrian you city. earlier in the day in a joint appearance with his french counterpart, defense secretary carter said the strikes were possible because of the effectiveness of the kurdish force he who in carter words
could nominate targets. >> we validate those cargts includingthose targetsincluding validating that there won't be innocent victims of the strike and then we stay the strike. >> reporter: he called be a nimble or opportunistic foe would neither be easy nor quick. the opposition on capitol hill was as strong as ever. house armed services committee chairman mack thornbury the u.s. loses ground and time. but the u.s. central command says over the past two months i.s.i.l. has given up almost 2,000 square miles of territory including tal abyad to kurdish fighters. the president argued that while
i.s.i.l. has scored tactical victories, it still has great strategic weaknesses. he argued that i.s.i.l.'s days are numbered because essentially it's surrounded by countries that are committed to its destruction. but one of the administration's sharpest critics senators explaibexphaibyouchain john mccain denounced that as dilutional. they both testify tomorrow before mccain's armed services committee. >> how interesting that will be. of the status of iraqi efforts to push i.s.i.l. out of anbar province this northern iraq what is that view? >> it is a view of strategic patience. the united states says that that's going to have to be done by iraqi forces. and unlike the kurdish forces
that are operating in northern iraq and parts of syria which have been getting high praise from the pentagon, the pentagon particularly defense secretary ash carter has not been particularly laudatory of those special troops. they set up a special area not so much to train the troops but to retrain the commanders and restore the division that fled in the face of the i.s.i.l. assault on ramadi. it is taking time to rebuild not just to rearm and rebuild but give the leaders the confidence they can retake ramadi. all of this indicates they are not going to be doing this any time soon. >> jamie mcintire live from the pentagon thank you. be i.s.i.l. attack happened in haditha acknowledge still under iraqi government control
killing 17 at a military checkpoint. allied forces say they destroyed two more bombs before catching up to the attackers. the death toll has now climbed to 12. an iraqi fighter jet dropped a bomb in an iraqi neighborhood after what's been called a technical failure. the ammunition jammed and failed to detonate. the bomb then pattern dropped as the russian made plane returned to base. dozens of civilians were injured. as iraqi government force he try counterattack the number of civilian deaths is continuing to grow. dozens more have been injured and it's all hampering the government's standing to fight. jane arraf has the story. >> around i.s.i.l.'s biggest
strongholds, fallujah will be the most difficult to recapture. i.s.i.l. is believed to have launched dozens of suicide bomb attacks in the past weeks across anbar province. air strikes and ar timary. the intensified operations though on the edge of the cities are killing civilians as well as fighters. the government says it is only targeting i.s.i.l. but some of the victims are clearly women and children. the details are difficult to confirm. hospitals are chromed by i.s.i.l. iraqi government doctors here have been pulled out. this i.s.i.l. video appears to show young men said to have been killed when government air strikes hit a football pitch on saturday. the iraqi gofs denies they were on a football pitch. barrel bombs dropped by iraqi
security forces are band by international law. military leaders dissent that. >> we are using air force jets and army jets. these are our people they are iraqis i have heard about the use of barrel bombs in the media but i can assure you there is no such thing. >> hiding in civilian areas. even if civilians wanted to leave fallujah and reamed, there aren't a lot of places they can go because i.s.i.l. controls so much territory in bawsh, there is only one route for many is e-some families, that has left tens of thousands much those cities caught betweenof thosecaught between i.s.i.l. and the coming attack. >> adjunct lecturer, joining us
from washington. michael, the president announced more than 5,000 air strikes have been launched against i.s.i.l including intensity in the past couple of days. how intense is it? >> it is a great talking point but the problem is, is it disrupting resupply of ramadi. or mosul? the majority of the aircraft that actually go don't drop munitions because there is nobody on the ground to verify the target. this indiscriminant bombing. >> military simply trying to take out some of the bridges in raqqa and essentially keep i.s.i.l. confined there? >> those are disruptive. those are helpful in raqqa and
zerazur where those air strikes are taking place but there is no capable ground force to exploit those air strikes and that's something that we've seen work against i.s.i.s. when air strikes were in support of kurds, in kobani, peshmerga and the mosul dam and the security forces in tikrit, so you have to have a capable ground force in order to exploit those air strikes. >> everybody seems to disagree iraq does not have that capable ground force but where do you fall in terms of there are some people in washington that thinks look, strange all that the united states should be obligated to do or john mccain and lindsay graham think that they should put spotters on the ground to direct the air strikes. >> we simply gave them arms and weapons, we partnered with them, the ability to call in air strikes, the ability to call in a ground force to capture al
qaeda operatives if they were actually in their neighborhoods. this is a sons of iraq sahwa arming of the sunnis in a very light way. you can't simply give them a weapon and a basic am mow load and expect them to go fight i.s.i.s. >> can you also expect that you can create a level of dependency getting people to engage in this fight themselves they simply rely more and more on the united states? >> the problem is we are not even giving them the opportunity to rely on the united states. only sunnis can take back i.s.i.s. areas. the government in baghdad is not allowing to us turn us to train sunnis because they feel they will turn their guns on the government in baghdad. 85% of the americans in iraq have never been to iraq before. this is a young force a force under the age of 30 and most of
them have not seen combat in iraq. the americans rawks were getting used to knowing aren't there anymore -- rawks were iraqis were getting used to knowing aren't there anymore. >> i.s.i.l. essentially carrying out suicide bombers does that change the strategy or the effort the united states and iraqi forces have to bring towards i.s.i.l. >> well, the iraqi security forces to their credit and the shia militias have done very well in protecting the shia holy sites during the month of ramadan. in tunisia in kuwait and also in paris. i.s.i.s. can say we need you to conduct lone wolf attacks and they'll put out 100,000 messages in a week via social media. all they need to have happen is
one person to carry out an attack and i.s.i.s. will claim credit for it and the media will give them credit for it. we will have lone wolves, there's not a woal lot we can do about it. but we need to not give i.s.i.s. credit for everything they claim credit for. >> thank you for coming. >> you're welcome. >> just ahead, we'll take an in-depth look at yanis varoufakis. later, in nigeria the militant group boko haram has just carried out a new round of deadly attacks.
greece has a new finance minister tonight. yanis varoufakis resigned from his position, replaced by euclid tsakalotos. expected to be at the euro zone meeting tomorrow. we'll look at varoufakis style and substance. peter sharp explains. >> a flam buoyant economist. yanis varoufakis greece's finance minister has almost overnight become europe's most recognized politicians. as he roasmed over the euro zone in the last six months, leading an offensive to end austerity and cut a part of greece's debt. the charismatic casually dressed shaven headed and athletic minister was not just a well respected political commentator but something of a charmer.
the german newspaper de velt ran the headline what makes yanis varoufakis a sex symbol. >> we established an excellent deal of communicates which gives mecommunication. >> we don't agree with what we have to do now despite a very intense communication. >> we agree to disagree. >> he had a frosty sanitary of jeroen dijsselbloem. >> inspiring fear in people mind numbing fear. well, the choice that we were given accept and nonviable agreement or we'll shut your banks can be classified as that. >> reporter: but some analysts in greece say varoufakis simply
failed to do the job. >> we are here after five months and the banks are closed and actually if you could consider what's the primary role of the finance minister is actually for the banking system to be working in an orderly fashion and this is not the case. >> reporter: on sunday a last appeal from varoufakis to the people of greece. >> translator: this is about a holy moment. a moment of hope for the whole of europe. a moment that gives hope to europe that the common currency and democracy can coexist. >> so what will we do? >> he warned earlier this month he would quit if greece votes yes and doesn't support the government. peter sharp, al jazeera. >> ansel merck you think that the resignation of yanis varoufakis increases ors the
possibility that greece will have a chance of agreement with the euro group? >> well neither actually. clearly with him it would have been difficult but it's not as if him walking away suddenly resolves all the problems that greece has. he set europe on fire and now he's caught running away with the matches. so yes a solution might be possible. with varoufakis gone. but it's not like there's any easy choices for greek public now. >> what does a solution in your estimation look line over the next few days? >> next few days there is no solution. what's happening right now is that the creditors are not doing anything. they're going to wait for proposals and the longer they wait the tougher it becomes for greece. the banks are starving. the banks are probably going to implode and at some point the greek government will have to issue ious because they can't pay pensions and government employees anymore.
which means the ious will be traded at a discount to the euro which will mean they will have their own currency. there are a lots of things they can do in creating a business friendlilyfriendly environment. misled the greek population on what the chances are. varoufakis is very popular and charismatic but the greek population is the one that is suffering. >> let's assume the greek government isn't going to take any of the steps you just outlined at what point is it a humanitarian crisis? >> i think this is where it's heading. it is a humanitarian crisis, people don't get medicine for example, that is a very serious issue that is going to be compassgas exacerbated.
some type of revenue bonds get a loan for a very specific project but it's very difficult to come up with a comprehensive deal right now. remember the past deals are gone. germany for example needs to vote twice on it, all this takes time and a time is luxury the creditors have but the greek public doesn't have. >> the country should not be suggesting that greece must pay every dime it oaz to owes to europe. given that germany had a lot of its debt essentially wiped out. >> at some point one has to talk about debt relief but it's not good to talk about debt relief when somebody doesn't have his house in order. the greek can default today that's not a problem exebt they
haveexcept theyhave to live with the consequences of not having any credit. they have to create a business friendly environment. once you can sustain yourself then you can talk about debt relief. but if you do it at this stage the greek government is going to be in the same situation year or two or three from now and it doesn't help anybody -- >> but the main argument we hear from the greek people look there are austerity measures that constrained the greek economy and maybe you need something to help the economy grow. >> but money doesn't grow on trees. they're not going to give money to somebody who doesn't know how to balance a checkbook. that's the essence. once the greeks know how to balance a checkbook, and raising the retirement age the creditors say, if you don't want to play along good luck, you can do it your own way but don't expect our money.

mohammed jamjun reports. >> reporter: in syria the conflict continues. an unending barrage as fierce as this fire. as suffocatings as this smoke. suffocating as this smoke. a regional spillover from syria has never been so real. on the move still is i.s.i.l. fielgt to keep control of raqqa its main stronghold and to take over hasaka ton border with turkey. the government is fighting to repel rebels and regain the upper hand in zaladani. with where syrian planes drop barrel bombs from the air. they are not only group using makeshift munitions.
rebels in aleppo use what they can here transforming a gas canister into a bomb. complicating the conflict even further the presence of kurdish fighters. until now the most effective fighting force against i.s.i.l. driving teener towards raqqa and on the front lines in hasaka, kurdish ypg forces are attempting to stop the islamic state of iraq and the levant. more battle lines are drawn and more fighting forces are opened. as the war gets more complicated and dangerous every day. mohammed jamjun al jazeera. >> houthi ron state news agencies say saudi led planes attacked be civilian areas. vast majority of those killed and injured were civilians. the united nations has been

christian church. al jazeera april yvonne ndege is there and sent this report. >> the report suggests one of the attacks in jos was a popular cleric who denounced activity by boko haram and preached peaceful co-existence between muslims and christians. it is not clear whether he was killed or injured in the attack, still trying to establish that. the other blast happened at a restaurant we're told it was frequented by local politicians and businessmen. this is all unclear how the authorities will handle this latest voyages. it comes at the end of days of violence in the region which has seen more than 200 people killed by boko haram. when the new president muhammadu buhari was sworn in at the end of play, remember he came into power promising to defeet the group.
he moved the command and control of the force and released more than $20 million to fight the group. there has been diplomatic efforts, he traveled to germany to the g-7 to chad and niger and after ramadan he will go to cameroon and to the united states to meet u.s. president barack obama where it is believed boko haram will be the main subject of discussion. it is a sense on the ground that even with all the effort the government is seeming to make, it is not filtering down to communities, communities are not being protected and this is just evidence that boko haram is still a force to be reckoned with. >> yjyvonne ndege reporting from the nigerian capital of abuja. doubling the amount of time
the u.s. congress would have to undermine any agreement if they go past june 9. as james bays jay reports diplomatic editor james bays reports. >> all of the foreign minister are here in vienna and for the first time in this final stage of these negotiations, they've all been meeting together. the chinese foreign minister say they are now pretty close. >> new progress has been made in the negotiations. there are still several issues outstanding on the table. we believe that acceptable solutions can be found to these outstanding issues. hence, the comprehensive agreement is within reach. >> we're told there are only a few items on which they now have to try and get agreement but in this process the last details
were always going to be most difficult ones. they'll continue meeting knows knowing that time is running out. the deadline is tuesday. there's only a matter of hours left. >> that was al jazeera diplomatic editor james bays. >> we'll take a closer look at britain pauses to remember the victims and examine how the british government is trying to deal with extremism a decade later. the middle east respiratory syndrome, also known as mers, from philippines has been diagnosed with the potentially fatal virus. quarantine measures at the port of entry. back in february, a nurse was

22 speeches that pope francis is expected to make during his week long trip to south america so very soon he will be switching gears and focusing on another of his favorite themes which is climate change. and the need for mankind to protect mother earth. less than a month ago pope francis issued a bitter critique of capitalism in an encyclical that wawrnd climate change was in danger of destroying our planet. which be opening up protected areas of amazon rain forest to oil exploration. lucia newman, al jazeera quito. >> joining us from be south bend tonight peter this is pope's second trip to south america. he was there two years ago for the world youth day in 2013.
what is his agenda this time around? >> this time around he is going to be unfolding some of his own ideas about la latin america. he was very well-known there he was not only archbishop of buenos ayers before he became pope but a leading voice. he could repeat what john paul ii said, and can repeat the need for new evangelization and ardor, but he's going to bring out his own themes, a culture in which people are getting together to dialogue about the basis of civil society and that's going to be extremely interesting in this trip. >> also interesting to hear from lucia newman's report there at the end where the pope is talking about the evils of be pollution and globalization and there's the president who is
opening up the forest for oil exploration. >> he dealt with both the kirchners in his native argentina, and encyclical, that talked about creation as a kind of grammar what pope francis dead was much more prophetic and much more urgent even bringing in to the chagrin of some data about climate change from potatoespottsdam and others, the wilderness of amazon and refrain from oil mining, oil drilling and also some mining. that wouldn't be out of character for him. he is a very bold person and has a lot of experience speaking his mind on how values relate to politics, not on policy
questions. >> does he also in your estimation have a sense of his own preliminary power that is he so popular in all parts of the world that he by virtue of his visit to the president of ecuador can extract promises from something like the environment? >> that is of course true and the number of visits we have seen in the vatican by the president of his own country and many other world leaders testified to that and that is particularly acute in latin america since he is the first latin american pope. in his private meetings and also in his public mass he at these shrines where he be connects with the masses of people, how they produce a new form of civil society where people can get together and talk about points of view. he's not going to tell legislators or presidents exactly what to do on a particular question. >> is there a way the pope is trying to essentially retain catholics and grow the cliblght populationcatholicpopulation in be
latin america? as opposed to other parts of the planet? >> it's his own country he can't be indifferent. his main role as a good shepherd as a pastor is to build up the faith on the whole globe. i think what's happening in latin america is in these three countries some of the poorest countries of latin america he is going to talk about the conclusion of the poor study the main thing is going to carrying on the gospel, sense of faith and the whole structure that's rooted in devotion to mary and love for jesus christ. high percentage 80 almost 90% in these three countries there are still structural changes going on throughout latin america that are making for avery different ballgame from when he grew up in the outskirts of buenos aires.
