and wrong stuff wrong i'm still here to go into areas that nobody else is going to talk to people that nobody else is talking to and bringing that story to the forefront. millions in peril the u.n. warns of the biggest humanitarian tragedy as an offensive in syria's rebel stronghold looms. large from doha everyone i'm come all santamaria this is the world news from al-jazeera the warnings on syria have been voiced in tehran as well with the presidents of turkey iran and russia sent together in search of solutions also had the brazilian far right presidential candidate who was stabbed on the campaign trail says he prepared himself for such an attack. born in serbia taught in

albanian the school that could soon have borders rearranged around it. so concerns are growing louder from around the world about what a planned offensive on the last rebel held territory in syria could really mean the un security council's been briefed in the past few hours and suggestions of safe passage should be created for up to three million people in the special envoy for syria says full scale fighting and it could trigger the quote biggest humanitarian tragedy at the end of the most horrible recent conflict in our memory. president egypt typer one warned his country can't take in any more syrian refugees as he met his russian and iranian counterparts in teheran but rejected it once called for a cease fire but they and iran's president hassan rouhani did agree to meet again to seek a joint solution president hassan rouhani emphasized the need for political and
8:02 pm
military solutions have a listen. to fight terrorism an adlib isn't an inevitable. part of a mission to bring about peace and stability and. we should make sure that their civilians are not harmed and just process. we are fighting for peace war for war is a mistake from our point of view more from our correspondent covering things in tehran example surviving. of the many issues discussed at the trilateral summit in teheran between the presidents of iran russia and turkey perhaps the thing that will impact syrians on the ground in syria most immediately is if the three countries diverging on what to do next with regards to live now the turkish president president of the one was clear that his country is already housing three
8:03 pm
point five million syrian refugees and that any displacement of the three point five million more syrians currently living and live is not something that would be sustainable and would be unfair to the syrian people the majority of whom are innocent civilians and have suffered enough now president hassan rouhani for his part acknowledge that yes the majority of people there are not armed fighters who are not affiliated to any of the groups but that it lived needed to be rooted out or terrorists as he called them needed to be rooted out from it live to assure that that the civilians there would not be used as human shields now he has gone on throughout the day talking about how syria's national security and territorial integrity is a major priority and retaking it by the syrian government is an important part of moving forward from conflict to reconstruction now if he was occupying the middle ground then the russian president vladimir putin was on the other end of the
8:04 pm
spectrum and made his position clear that if armed groups of terrorists as he called them are willing to use innocent civilians as human shields then what happens in the next is going to be the fault of those armed groups so three very different opinions on what promises to be the final battle in syria the final large scale battle and a seemingly inevitable battle now for it live. let's check in with our diplomatic editor james bays that u.n. headquarters in new york the security council was briefed and part of that briefing was a video link up with stephanie vista the special envoy yes and he said that he was very concerned deeply concerned about the situation that is also the feeling of a meeting i've just been to of opposition leaders from syria where there really was
8:05 pm
very little hope about the situation but mr de mistura told security council he did have a plan that had been suggested by civil society in it lip he told ambassador nikki haley who is tembe as president of the security council that he would like to brief in private on this plan she said no during her month as the president she wanted all meetings in public so he agreed to reveal his secret plan in front of the security council and so in front of us two and made it clear that his plan was to try and separate the ninety eight point eight percent of the population believed to be nearly three million in libya who are civilians from the fighters this is what he had to say they thought your lobby laid lesion is being already mounting we have been think not only candlelight we've been think they're mostly without a little bit about know they want to let them today by a look at their door actually put it on flag the people they know we don't want that we want just to remind everyone we are sleeping with three million people have
8:06 pm
a voice they can you did if they hear that we are theory of the budget. so that is james and ambitious plan to save the laith what's your take on it. yeah well he says that what he's going to do is we've already got protests in the live he's going to try and mobilize those citizens who are the vast majority of people there get them to use their voice he's also going to try to get turkey to put pressure on the fighters and then he's going to say to the fighters well you need to leave the built up areas you need to leave the cities the towns and villages in it and go into the countryside the problem with this plan as far as i see it is if you are a fighter in it live and remember you've been fighting for seven and a half years and not given up in all that time why would you leave the built up areas which are your safe havens surrounded by civilians and go into the countryside where you can easily bomb to by those who want to bomb you the russian
8:07 pm
air force and the syrian government devils james maybe you can this is a little unconventional but you can answer the question which of your actually sent to me a little bit earlier on a newsgroup i was asking about why the un and the united states and the like weren't involved in the talks in iran today i mean it's worth repeating that they're out there separate diplomatic tracks sort of still ongoing on. there are separate different diplomatic tracks and this is a configuration that started in kazakhstan with the start of process set off by the russians who decided i think with talks between president putin and president that maybe they could shape this together as their own rival sides of the war in syria and have been backing different sides and that's been a long term process now for several years that's been going on through starner sochi and now the next meeting which took place just
8:08 pm
a few hours ago was in tehran others have been there at various stages observers but this really is a trilateral process between iran russia and turkey stefan de mistura wants to see those three in the next few days in geneva but he's also going to be meeting some of the western powers the big question though is whether the onslaught the assault on will actually happen in the meantime james bays that u.n. h.q. in new york thank you for that so the talks go on over syria but a planned meeting on the war in yemen had a snag for the rebels haven't yet managed to fly into the swiss city of geneva for negotiations with representatives of the yemeni government un special envoy for yemen martin griffith is already there he says he's discussed issues including prisoners and humanitarian access with yemen's foreign minister often david chase are in geneva. the u.n. special envoy for yemen is still holding out hope that these consultations talks
8:09 pm
can start but he doesn't know exactly when it could be saturday it could be sunday it could even be monday but he's still holding out hope the question is though exactly how long planned the yemen government delegation sitting on their own here at this hotel in geneva how long can they actually wait when will their patience run out. still on the ground in sun other yemeni capital is the who cheat rebel delegation they're demanding the chance to put injured fighters on their plane for treatment in the amman the capital of moscow's but the yemeni government spokesman here told me this not only the injured fighters they're trying to get on that plane let's hear what he said they said yesterday that they want to departure and jets from yemen we have information from our side from there from sanaa that those are not injuries they are a group of iranian and or

8:17 pm
needs and it is going to action and violence could only make things worse so we are preparing on the ground for potential escalation but i think the thing to stress right now is the fact that supplies are already known when we talk about food medication we're talking about also displaced people. who are already in overcrowded conditions who are living in shelters or in rural areas that in terms of hospitals the world health organization is saying that well national trust that also are not functioning it live right now and. we can imagine that this opens it would make things even worse a palestinian teenagers been shot dead by the israeli army during renewed protests on the gaza border the palestinian health ministry says seventeen year old brave are cuffed joe was shot in the chest by israeli army fire and east of rougher

seventh vote also not always a far right politician who like in some self to donald trump person as detractors say he's homophobic racist and sexist. but his campaign message of cracking down on crime and violence has won him loyal supporters and a lead in the polls but because he's so controversial he's known to often wear a bulletproof vest at campaign events but it does not appear he was wearing one on wednesday when he was stabbed tables on doe disease. now a new push has begun to sort out a territorial dispute that's lingered since the wars in the balkans the presidents of serbia and kosovo cold off face to face talks in brussels at the last minute but separately met the use top diplomat high on the agenda was a plan to redraw borders the pressure of a valley in southern serbia where the population is mostly ethnic albanian that
8:21 pm
would join kosovo in return serbia would take control of the majority serb area of course of a but it's a gamble that could provoke new tension son your guy a report from pressure. oh it's the first week back at school for these young students at the ybor him kelmendi primary school in the town of pressure it's the largest one of its kind in serbia all the pupils are albanian as they settle in the school itself prepares for what could be the last time it teaches the serbian curriculum and what they hope will be a fresh start for the school. in the dorm had an image there's hardly been any investment here since ninety sixty five everything's in poor condition and we have no bread we're holding in textbooks. the possibility of a land swap between serbia and kosovo has been uppermost in people's minds here pressure of us population is ninety percent ethnic albanian the u.s.
8:22 pm
and the european union had always discouraged the idea until now and apparently straightforward solution on the surface but has the potential to reopen old wounds in this part of the balkans which has already suffered brutal conflict following the breakdown of yugoslavia. one of the plans that people here fear is being discussed is moving the border to this railway track now while that would put the town of pressure on firmly within the borders of kosovo it would mean that these outlying villages would still be in serbia and leave thousands of other albanians still stuck there. moreover there is still uncertainty as to what serbia would want to return but would likely demand dominated northern kossovo which it views is non-negotiable yes we would like to be part of republic of course or both we have to be very careful in order for asians in terms of you know for republic of
8:23 pm
course all to be created a lot of sacrifice has been done by all the albanians including the greens of. we do not want to interfere in this process this also poses another dilemma for the region's leaders if borders are to be redrawn on the basis of ethnicity it could provoke more calls for land swaps from macedonia which has more than half a million albanians living along its front here is even the goal of eventual e.u. x. session football can countries cannot lay these fears disclose we don't find discussion about and between kosovo and serbia conducive to reaching the goal we think it will reopen too many old wounds in the population base and that is why we are very skeptical it is a huge gamble with the risk of reigniting ethnic conflict here a political process that will take a good normal amount of delicate negotiation from all parties involved so new
