10:04 pm
parliament is expected to hold. to discuss the crisis on saturday and he would. take this on we can speak. who's director of policy analysis at the doha institute mr cutler welcome to the program what's your sense of the fundamental cause here first of all i mean this is in my being in a very important development and the recent protests in iraq i think people are just protesting against iranian interference in their own internet if it was after fifteen years of the u.s. invasion of iraq and iran has influence in the contrary because as you know those who are running the country although those have been running the country for the boss fifteen years are actually iranian allies and those people are protesting against these elites which are backed by iran on the one hand and also they are protesting against iranian policies in the south of iraq because as you know is that the iranians i mean there has been some accusations against iran that it's
10:05 pm
dumping its nuclear waste and shut the lot of water we and iran has all saw i mean talked about of what are we is the mean water source for a bus that i actually most people drink from this water and there has been. incidents reported recently that people have failed because of this and we switch you're on actually is dumping a lot of what are we. going to say it's not just about iranian influence interference because we heard in that report that residents say that local government is corrupt local government a lot infrastructure to virtually because. this is the region that generate as much of the country's oil wealth. that's very true that's very true but those people who are running actually are also supported by iran i mean most of the most of the people who are running. iraq in fact are mainly backed by iran this shows how iran
10:06 pm
influence in iraq has grown over the past few years but also iran has and i mean this is something that i was going to see also iran has cut electricity supply in recent weeks also claiming that the iraqi government has not been able to be for that electricity and that is another reason actually why people have directed their anger against iran although iran has been draining more of iraq falling can see in recent weeks because as you know iraq has become the mean window for the iranians to get more of their hard hard currency they are exporting their goods manufactured goods to iraq in exchange for getting the hard currency from that country ok and that is also affecting iraq so so the corrupt elite which has been the ruling which is backed by iran i think we have seen i mean to the sort of anger that is yes i actually. think this is where do you think this is heading is it likely to spiral
10:07 pm
further the central government are they going to release funds to improve services or what's going to happen. behalves this is something that we might be seeing but might be seeing in the next few weeks but in fact i mean did they need. reform we need major reform in iraq before seeing any and he improvement but i think these protests will be unhappy encourage the political forces to resist being helps more iranian influence because you know now there is a big. confrontation inside the countries between those who are supporting iran or the prall iran element led by former iraqi prime minister nouri al maliki and the. elements. that incumbent prime minister is trying to represent those so we are seeing this sort of tectonic conflict inside the country be between the iran and iran iraqi forces and this state of us not today will be
10:08 pm
a house in college fair that those who are trying to are to limit iranian influence in the country to to go out and try to to depend more perhaps on this sentiment nationalistic sentiments of the iraqis order to gain their independence great to get your perspective appreciate that thanks very much. turkey has warned that it cannot take in any more syrian refugees if the government of russian forces push ahead with a planned offensive in the. president expressed fears of a bloodbath as the leaders of turkey iran and russia held a meeting in tehran to discuss the fate of the rebel held province is thought full scale fighting indeed could cause a humanitarian disaster the almost three million people trapped the leaders agree that the conflicts can only end through a negotiated political process and they said they will meet again in russia to seek a joint solution. well it was surrounded by syrian forces from the west the south
10:09 pm
and from the east so far as strikes have focused on the western town of just a girl which is a stronghold for the al qaeda linked group. turkey is trying to prevent an all out conflict fearing tens of thousands more refugees would flee across its order while turkish president reza typer when called for an urgent cease fire in syria dimly i was serious to me there are different methods required in the struggle against terrorism which involve patience and sensitivity as turkey we have shown these qualities and we are determined to continue in this way we do not want a bloodbath in italy and we expect you to support us in this regard we have shared concerns in relation to italy and we must find a solution with this in mind as president and president vladimir putin rejected calls for a ceasefire meanwhile saying that the syrian government has the right to regain its
10:10 pm
territory. mr upon which. not we should think of all aspects of this complicated issue and so the problem together while understanding that the legitimate syrian government has the right and should have the end but the whole national territory under its control what i say now from our correspondent zain but ravi has more from tara. 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 the three countries diverging on what to do next with regards to live now the turkish president president the one was clear that his country is already housing three 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 indeed
10:11 pm
live are innocent civilians and have suffered enough now president hassan rouhani for his part acknowledged that yes the majority of people there are not armed fighters are not affiliated to any of the groups but that it would have 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 off occupying the middle ground then the russian president vladimir putin was on the other end of the 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
10:12 pm
happens in live 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 of the final large scale battle and a seemingly inevitable battle now for adlib or maybe while there have been demonstrations across syria against the planned offensive it is liberal. thousands of people took to the streets after friday press calling for a halt to any military operation many have been preparing shelters and stockpiling food more than half of its population are already displaced people who've fled other parts of the country. was one of the protests in italy. the reality that they were going to do about that would be about what dozens of demonstrations in the proppants of it lib and the country thought of him and aleppo have taken place condemning the russian intervention and moscow threats to launch a military operation in the demonstrate its called for the armed opposition
10:13 pm
factions to unite to repel any possible attack by the regime forces and their allies on it leap and at suburbs the demonstrators carried balance condemning the un envoy to mr with statements about it live and the thought of the international community about the threats of the regime forthwith and its allies to launch a military operation on the raid. the un security council has also been discussing it led to from i think at the james bays joins us live now from the a un in new york james and the u.n. envoy has put forth a new plan of a lead what if one of this involves well pretty solid mood nic in the security council because i think many diplomats believe it's not now a case of if there is an offensive in need live but when despite that though stephane de mistura of the u.n. special envoy has come up with a new plan to stop the bloodshed he first said he'd like to give the security council the plan in a private session but then i'm biased the nikki haley the u.s.
10:14 pm
ambassador who's the current this month president of the security council said no we want to your plan in public and this is what he said. ideally all militant fighters should be asked with a deadline to move their own military present baited our way it would be away from populated think the village is at the same time and here comes the message and image i got from the population a media campaign indicating that this is what they've been asked from door the door to move out of they may how the day may fit the creamy there are people going to be mobilized on that so one of the leavers for this plan is that people power getting the civilians and it lead to say to the fighters you need to move out
10:15 pm
of the built up areas out of the villages and towns and cities the other lever he says is the turkish government putting pressure on those fighters but i think there is a big question here if you are a fighter or a commander of one of those fighting groups who's been fighting now in this war for more than seventy years why would you now leave areas built up areas among civilians where you may feel more safe and instead go into the countryside when you know that the syrian government and the russians have aircraft ready to bomb you or days later there thanks very much there james baker reporting from the u.n. in new york. still to come this off. given to the rebels there are no show but peace talks in geneva but say that could change if three key demands are met. and shares in the economy could tesla for as much as ten percent so after more bizarre behavior from the chief executive.
