6:16 am
reconciliation after a decade of division both sides expressed hope that at this time it was very good. and there has been full agreement on the concept of empowering the government and the legitimate palestinian government will return to working normally in accordance with its prerogatives and the law. despite the fact that we have some different views different political points we have different disputes but this will never change the fact that we are brothers we are brothers in religion we are brothers in nationality we are brothers in the national interest we suffer the same we have the same future we need to find a way for a unity of our people to secure the end patients of our people this isn't the first time they've been here repeated attempts to reconcile have failed a main stumbling block the future of hamas military wing appears for now to have been set aside palestinian authority security services are to resume running gaza's border crossings including the vital one with egypt other issues how to run
6:17 am
internal security and merge two separate groups of government workers are being addressed step by step along the lines of a twenty eleven agreement also signed with great fanfare in cairo. here in ramallah the palestinian president mahmoud abbas welcomed the deal saying it accelerated palestinian reconciliation is fatah delegation head indicated its timelines and targets would ensure that it stayed on track and of course it has egypt breathing hard down the necks of both parties in gaza so damaged by the split the economic blockade and three israeli wars people are talking cautiously in terms of hope. when we used to hear about any reconciliation efforts we would think immediately of the failure of it but we hope this time is different unity could at least solve the power crisis and bring happiness to the gazan people. we've had enough eleven years of suffering without electricity no medicine for people no travelling
6:18 am
we want to live like other nations. so far the israeli reaction has been muted saying hamas would need to recognize israel and give up its arms but without the full bore opposition of previous reconciliation attempts. by the us who is much more interested in the. eighty's and without. in gaza celebrations were underway not least of the prospect of an end to restrictions on salaries and electricity imposed by the palestinian authority earlier this year to put pressure on hamas but it's clear that this is the start of a process the coming weeks will feature plenty of opportunities to build mutual trust will weaken it very force it in the occupied west bank. the united states and israel are pulling out of your mesko the united nations cultural agency washington says the move follows what it describes as the need for fundamental reform in the
6:19 am
organization and continuing until israel bias the head of says it's a shame the u.s. is pulling out because it's a founding member of the organization. i express my deep regrets. i remember what i said in two thousand and eleven already when the united states alone states voting rights and suspended payment to. the united states. for the united states in fact if you go back into history we will see not only that . united states is a founding member of the whole idea that you can build peace through education science communication. is basically an american idea. so what exactly is unesco well united nations educational scientific and cultural organization was founded at the end of the second world war with the aim of promoting peace and security through international collaboration projects to
6:20 am
achieve these aims unesco promotes education programs scientific and historical research on cultural diversity in an effort to preserve important ideas and architecture but is probably most recognized for its famous branding of world heritage sites there are one thousand and seventy three of them around the world ali abunimah is the co-founder of the online palestinian news organization an electronic intifada paid believes israel and the u.s. use u.n. agencies to push their own agendas. israel and the united states have been impeding their work as you know just as they impede the work of other u.n. agency which they see soleus vehicles to push israel's of the us agenda so it is of course symbolic. of israel's desire to push gender colonise ation an occupation but i think a lot of people in the well will say good riddance to the united states and good
6:21 am
riddance to israel and would like to see israel withdraw from more you and agencies rather than using them as vehicles to try to push its legal gender its occupation of colonization of palestinian land so i sigh well israel's announcement that it will pull out and encourage israel to go farther and pull out of the united nations altogether the trump administration is scrapping subsidies to health insurance companies in the latest aggressive move against obamacare comes off in the us president took another step to undo his predecessor as signature health care law signed an executive order that let small businesses band together to buy cheaper health plans giving fair benefits to their employees the removal of subsidies could force insurance to drill business and see prices skyrocket well there's already been a backlash from democrats and republicans who say it goes against trump's promises
6:22 am
to make health care more affordable professor howell pollack is on the university of chicago he says this move is likely to negatively impact poor americans. it's a very direct way to try to undermine one of the main pillars of the law by making health insurance on these. private market exchanges much more expensive and by making it easier for younger and healthy people to find other ways to buy insurance so that they don't have to subsidize the coverage of older and sicker people the way that obamacare was designed to do so it's pretty straightforward way to try to undermine the signature achievement of his predecessor his real base are older not particularly affluent white people in rural areas and those are precisely the people who in many cases rely most heavily on the affordable care act obamacare. america is so polarized that many of president from supporters you know really you
6:23 am
know will go with him on this even though most of the experts including experts hired by republicans in congress you know are saying that this is going to increase people's health insurance premiums we were just in a moment in america where we're so polarized that democrats and republicans are getting their information from totally different places and. there's certainly a hard core of the president from supporters who will go who will support him on that the leaders of canada and mexico have vowed to work on a trade deal that benefits both countries as well as the u.s. they met in mexico city with the future of the three countries enough to agreements still unclear on wednesday justin trudeau held tough talks with u.s. president donald trump and washington trump has warned the u.s. could drop out of the deal john holdren reports from mexico city. canadian prime minister justin trudeau is visiting mexico at a very delicate moment in terms of the north american free trade agreement that binds canada mexico and the united states together in
6:24 am
a free trading block he's come straight from washington where president trump as he has been for some time was musing about whether it might not be best to scrap all together nafta and have bilateral trading agreements he's negotiators in the fourth round of negotiations now over enough to are apparently playing hardball they're trying to get things that the canadian makes contains don't really want to give now until now mates can kind of had quite a united front they both said that they want to modernize this agreement but they want to keep this agreement with it both in very different positions as well while the united states and canada both developed countries have quite a healthy trade balance makes coke and the u.s. u.s. has has a more than sixty billion trade deficit with mexico last year and that's precisely what president donald trump is worried about about eighty percent of mexico's exports also head to the united states so there's
6:25 am

6:27 am
extremely slow and at the same time increasing pressure by the united states to wipe away as many coca plants as possible to force eradication which has triggered the conflict. members of the african community council. who signed up for substitution are now in hiding in a safe house in. they say they are under threat by drug traffickers for resisting pressure to participate in the protests one person spoke to us asked not to be named. believe me the government chose a firm commitment to avoid violence against the farmers and brings the real solution to all these issues this is the way she will keep going out of control we believe it's already exploded and it's showing you that at least here the peace deal is feeling. the government suspended four officers for firing into the crowd
