union and he wants to carry on with his case for peaceful resolution of this catalonian crisis and so if we take him at his word he obviously intends at some stage to try and get meetings with officials and m.p.'s here in the european capital of brussels he didn't say exactly what he was going to do he didn't say what was on his agenda but if you are in brussels he might try and again access an audience to some of the senior figures here now at the moment they will turn their back on him they say this is an internal matter for madrid and the madrid government to conduct but to nevertheless he might actually get into the european commission or into the european parliament store to start talking to some of his own parties m e p's here in brussels but i don't think he'll have any luck
getting a significant interview or consultation with some of the senior figures here so it's more a case of him staying as he said in the freedom and security of brussels while the court cases carry on will and arrest warrant be issued will he become not only the. david thanks very much. and the reaction to his popping up in brussels. here in barcelona the members of the former regional government now. we're going to hear from them. one of the members.

a stray here four years ago a holding pain until a permanent solution was found and a deterrent for those who might follow. the locals of pup and you guinea were always hostile it was an attack in twenty four tane that left one refugee did the concept and conditions of men a silent who widely condemned finally according to the legal and astray or grade to close the same to and pay refugees compensation. but as the facility was decommissioned and security forces left on tuesday refugees reported. yesterday and authorities all out of the center abandoning these refugees essentially. and they have serious concerns for their safety on medicine and whether they may if so many are not so barricaded themselves into the same time. it's now a c h e water electricity and food supplies have been cut off.
the water tank is empty. as best i can be nice to die. but we are at a stage the asylum seekers were given alternative accommodation on the island but they said it isn't equipped to protect them from the locals they are not going to get it was safe to go into that's why i'm saying here this is a crazy situation everybody has been screaming about wanted to get out of the place where we saw that we had a cause that. and move them into a different facility and require those the refugees to go back to their country of origin and now they want life history is government says the prison closure is a mess of a pup in new guinea and yet papa new guinea disputed that in a statement on sunday which leaves refugees caught between two governments and a hostile native population ballasts al jazeera the russian foreign minister says allegations his country meddled in last year's us presidential election quote
fantasies. comments come a day after the first charges relating to moscow's involvement allegedly in the election were made public three former advisors on the trunk campaign of being indicted is can really help it. trump do solemnly swear donald trump has been in office less than a year but this is perhaps the most significant day of his presidency so far on monday two of his former associates avoided handcuffs and turned themselves into the authorities in washington. the first is paul mann afford the former chair of donald trump's presidential election campaign the other is rick gates a longtime business associate of matter forts and worked with the white house until march both men appeared in court pleading not guilty to a dozen charges they include conspiracy against the united states also to launder
money acting as an agent for a foreign principal providing false statements to investigators and failure to report foreign bank accounts there is no evidence that mr mann a fort with a trunk campaign colluded with the russian government the announcement which caught many off guard that a third person tied to the truck campaign george papadopoulos had pled guilty to lying to the f.b.i. that was over the timing of his meetings with alleged go betweens for russia he is now cooperating with the special investigation led by robert muller as with paul mann afforded rick gates the white house is pushing back diminishing the role of papadopoulos as a foreign policy advisor this individual was the member of a volunteer advisory council them at one time over the course of a year and he was part of a list that risk read out in the washington post and hardly call that some sort of
regular adviser however it's the case of paul man a for which is getting the most attention the indictments paint the picture of a man living a lavish lifestyle when f.b.i. agents raided his home they even photographed his suits as evidence of money laundering more than seventy five million a form payments through offshore bank accounts on twitter trump reacted to the arrests he has repeatedly called the investigation into ties between his two thousand and sixteen presidential campaign and russia a witch hunt by political adversaries and the media without offering any evidence the white. says it expects the rush of probe to wrap up soon and while the indictment states manna for its charges involved actions from twenty sixteen on twitter trump contradicted the claim arguing the charges against him out of fort emanate from actions taken before cheering trump's presidential bid trump again stated there was no collusion between his campaign and russia metaphor its lawyer
calls the charges ridiculous and on capitol hill top u.s. senators are also issuing statements about the indictments claiming it is proof the justice process is working and kimberly joins us live now from outside the white house those two main indictments papadopoulos manifold which one of the two is the more significant for that we should know about kimberly. well certainly there was a lot of attention first focused on paul matter for those with the charges that were expected but the surprise guilty plea by george papadopoulos is now the one that seems to be capturing most attention given the fact as as we read this indictment it certainly seems to lay out a template that george papadopoulos is cooperating with the muller investigation namely because he is listed there as what they call a pro active cooperate or what that means is that he may have been wiretapped
helping to gather information that would be germane to this investigation and certainly could be harmful as muller moves forward with this case possibly even further charges it seems what this seems to suggest is that there is the allegation of collusion that is being formulated here given the fact that papadopoulos well he is being portrayed by the trump administration is very low level volunteer was the one according to the indictments that was sending out e-mails trying to act as the go between between russian nationals and members of the campaign which the white house says were rebuffed in terms of those invitations but certainly that is something that the muller investigation seems intent on focusing on and that's why this becomes more problematic for the trumpet ministration does it also kind of eliminate the fact that this this. investigation the scope and the power of what mr mueller can do is huge i mean there is speculation online we've been broadcasting
it during our conversation this hour last hour when papadopoulos is standing in front of the london boss he's actually wearing a wire top so that's a multi-agency thing you don't just put someone like him on the streets of london with a wiretap without actually being signed off by all the governments. indeed in that sort of multiagency sort of multi-pronged approach is certainly concerning what we've seen here in washington now is a little bit of a climate of fear that seems to be taking grip as a result of these indictments first of all because of the severity given the fact that these charges paul manna for his associate rick gates are very serious could result in years in jail if convicted so that's the first thing in the second the actions that we see the white house taking very standard from the political playbook when there's a problem administrations tend to try and divert attention that's what we see happening not just with the president's social media he said three tweets this morning where one of them was trying to focus media attention on his middle class
tax cuts and tax reform but also to just the fact that there seems to be this constant denial and downplaying of the investigation even the suggestion by john kelly the chief of staff just last night in washington on national television where he believes there are said he believes that the molar investigation would wrap up swiftly when in fact the indication seems to be to the contrary in fact it appears there could even be more charges kimberly thanks a lot now a final session for the seventh round of talks aimed at ending serious six year long civil war that's taking place in the council capital astonished the meeting is expected to call for a cease fire between government forces and rebel groups for at least six months old and previous agreements from a stand i have been breached before imran khan reports now from their. the talks in a start to have concentrated on strengthening the deescalation zones in syria established in september those owns include it live province northern homes eastern ghouta and parts of the border with jordan security in the zones has been
guaranteed by russia and iran who backed the syrian regime and by turkey the rebels that keeps the foreign powers firmly entrenched on the ground in syria but the charity international rescue committee is concerned that civilians have been forgotten. the safety of civilians has not improved with the establishment of the so-called deescalation areas with so many armed groups not covered by cease fire agreements we have even seen periods of increased aerial bombardment the idea that peace is somehow broken out in syria is far from the reality we see civilians trapped in the area a pessimistic that the astonished talks will change any. people especially the entire us town a process is a failure it is nothing but empty promises we will do this we will do that all life . the circulation the horse start a process is a failure many years have passed since the beginning of the revolution and nothing
has changed to me the situation more i mean as it is. the syrian opposition also claims civilians are being targeted the escalation earlier which are being breached by that or demon iran on almost daily basis and russia's are going to and it's supposed to do something about that the deescalation zones are in place for another six months however that might get extended but what the a stunt to talk seem to be proving is that russia is leading the charge however they are walking a tight rope between the international community and all the different syrian factions but they do seem to be backing syrian president bashar al assad. it's not just the deescalation zones that are under discussion the syrian opposition wants a prisoner exchange but there's been no agreement on that so far u.n. backed talks are scheduled for geneva in late november iraq on the stone china and south korea have agreed to improve diplomatic relations after
a year long standoff of e.u. worse meat and missile systems in south korea seoul and see if they'll work together to curb north korea's nuclear program twenty but from seoul they issued a press statement saying they want to get the normalization of relations back on track that's encouraging neither side would be an elaborate ing on the missile defense system but both said that they remained in position with their stand on china wanting the missile system to be withdrawn and south korea saying it must stay but they've agreed to talk about that in the future that is encouraging it's one of those methods now of reducing tensions here because in the last few weeks the rhetoric between pyongyang in the north and washington in particular with president trump has really gone up a ratcheting or two a couple of notches so there are concerns about the fire and fury and the threats of total destruction north korea the threats by north korea basically of a nother nuclear nuclear test at this one atmospheric so
a lot of concern and with president trump about to arrive in south korea in the next week there are concerns about what may happen both china and south korea in addition to these meetings of both reaffirmed their commitment to peace for ways of trying to get north korea to denuclearize that is actually good news everyone sees this is a very highly emotional and tense situation in korea and the korean peninsula and very much there's concerns that it may lead to something happening for an unpredictable nature. next year's winter olympics have moved a symbolic step closer to a time when south korean organizers are still struggling to sell tickets the olympic torch has been officially handed over to the pyong sharing organizing committee in the greek capital athens where the ancient games began only thirty percent of tickets for next year have been sold so far the torch will now be taken on a relay of south korea at the opening ceremony on february the ninth six finalists
