bar is here to talk sport the what are they the best or the best of or fee for handing out the best awards in london and for once leno massy isn't in the running for the top prize what are these awards and should we care about that it's only the third year the event in two thousand and sixteen football's governing body broke away from his association with a more historic ballon d'or awards which were organized by france footballer magazine the individual player and coach awards are voted for by a selection of journalists national coaches team captains and the public shortlisted for the men's prize this year are christina rinaldo like a moderate and mohamed salah let's talk now to our sports correspondent leigh welling's leigh we've seen in the past these events are usually dominated by were naldo or massey or both is that going to change do you think. well for about a decade whichever they'll build whether it's the faith or best of all to form
3:40 am
a faithful wall the bylong door it was won by one of. a christian without a great rivalry one of the all time great footballing rivalries but leno messing up being nominated musicals that can't happen and he's not the award ceremony in no other ways christiane or without doubt who ask commitments with. now eventis but will we're now darwin did he suspect that he wouldn't luka module which is the fire in a way it's quite refreshing to see this thirty three year old croatian. really the individual skills of best human out or incredible but more churches such it's a man he makes croatia to want to change was for croatia to reach the world cup father when he was right at the heart of that and i think if he does manage to win this i use the five where it would be very popular most sollie you would feel deserves to be involved deserves to be that incredible club for liverpool he's well . maintained he enjoyed going and playing in the world cup for ajax it was pretty
3:41 am
much ruined by the injury sustained beforehand ok do players and the public care about these words do you think. that's starting to turn on social media there's been a lot of take up on this throughout the day i think that now people like talking about which football that they prefer who they feel should win these awards that doesn't mean to say the ballon d'or because the ballon d'or has that history originally for european football is just called the european football of the year actually over time it's become so prestigious and i do think that that is the one that still stands out maybe as the fee for awards properly there will be a time where they do become the biggest voting for but i don't think we're quite where you stand yet ok we'll see about that the wellings reporting live from london will get a lot more from lee coming up later on thank you tiger woods has won his first golf

intent of this is al jazeera live from london also coming up. president chairs a meeting on the global drug problem as world leaders gather in new york for the u.n. general assembly. so getting a change of direction for the maldives that the president concedes defeat after a tumultuous ten years for the new democracy. and a public inquiry opens in the u.k. into the infection nearly fifty years ago thousands of people with blood samples containing hiv and hepatitis c. . and only u.s. has warned russia but it's causing a significant escalation by deploying new advanced missiles to syria a tremendous sending it s. three hundred missile defense system to president bashar al assad
3:50 am
a week after one of its planes was shot down inaccurate syrian anti-aircraft fire u.s. national security adviser john bolton is encouraged moscow to reconsider the sale on israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu says russia's move risks increasing dangers in the region where a challenge has more from moscow. russia's s. three hundred the air defense system that's russia has held off from supply lines of the syrian military until now. would it be that within two weeks some sort of the ceramic system the as three hundred. will be handed over it's capable of intercepting air assault weapons on a range of more than two hundred fifty kilometers and at the same time can hit multiple aerial targets having an advanced facility and high fire rate the system will strengthen syrian air defense combat capabilities significantly defense minister sure you gave a little down to why the russians have changed their position but you're cool it is
3:51 am
you that has them going to let me make a point at the request of the israeli side and twenty thirteen we halted delivery of the s three hundred which was ready to be shipped to syria while syrian service personnel were given appropriate training today the situation has changed not by our fault the defense ministry holds israel responsible for the deaths of fifteen military personnel a week ago that reconnaissance plane was misidentified and mistakenly shot down by syrian air defense admits the confusion of his radio strikes and israeli military delegation sent to moscow last thursday failed to convince the russians it wasn't their fault. but interesting aspects of this rift is the way the ministry of defense approach differs from that taken by the kremlin the m.o.d.e. has kept pushing the view that israel is culpable but that he made his spokesperson but soft pedaling saying it was just an unfortunate accident and that the ass three
3:52 am
hundred decision is not say that israel. israel has previously been able to count on russia turning a blind eye to its airstrikes inside syria of which there have been some two hundred in recent years but if damascus really does get its hands on s three hundreds the israeli military will have to rethink its tactics is the first time in the. history of the conflict that we see the syrian defense is equipped with a mother in. missiles that can. deprive the israeli air force from their freedom of movement and the syrian air space part is not just the israelis who will be affected by the booth u.s. national security adviser john bolton has called it a beige of mistake any other country operating in the region will now have to realize that syrian airspace is theirs to use it will rory chalons al-jazeera

moscow. while leaders are gathering in new york for a united nations general assembly that's likely to feature iran and north korea high on its agenda u.s. president donald trump has been at the u.n. headquarters chairing a meeting on the global drug trade he set to address the general assembly on tuesday as is the iranian leader hassan rouhani the tension between the two powers is growing following an attack in the iranian city of two days ago diplomatic editor james bays joins us live from the u.n. so big day on iran tomorrow james what do expect to hear from trump and rouhani. well i think you're going to hear a continuing war of words from these two president trump will speak first he's the second speaker here at the u.n. general assembly you remember last year he said he had
3:54 am
a threat to completely destroy north korea well i think iran is going to be the main country that's in his sights this time. the iranian president also speaking here so getting a response just a couple of hours later to the u.s. president and then things move it's going to go on for forty eight hours i think the the the discussions about iran because then the u.n. security council be holding a meeting on thursday it's general meeting it's not specifically on iran but the u.s. has the current president of the council rotates every month so president trump will be chairing a meeting of presidents prime ministers and foreign ministers he's already made it clear that he wants to use that meeting to call out iran. talking about the prospects for north korea. while it is very interesting to compare these two and compare the rhetoric from president trump
3:55 am
a year ago to the rhetoric now because he's still being positive in fact he's been speaking a short time ago. meeting president moon of south korea and he's talking positively about another meeting between him and kim happening in the near future suggesting this time it won't be in singapore what will decide if that definitely goes ahead what we think it's not on the schedule yet that there will be a meeting between u.s. secretary of state pompei and the north korean foreign minister ho and the suggestion is that that meeting come at the very end of this week because the north koreans not speaking in the general assembly until saturday and it's interesting that state. reporters are being told the secretary of state might be staying in new york till monday so expect perhaps a weekend meeting and that will determine whether the second deported summit goes ahead james bays at the u.n. thank you very much indeed. yes deputy attorney general rod rosenstein is to meet

coalition of many parties in the maldives the last time m.v.p. came into power in two thousand and eight within three months that coalition for part one of the biggest challenges that the president elect will have is making sure that the coalition stays together that is able to keep his partners happy this very diverse group of people that he's able to create a power sharing arrangement in a presidential system which is not an easy goal you'll have a lot of difficulties coming up especially given that there's a parliamentary election less than six months down the line the political campaigning you know the vicious sort of infighting that tends to come before an election will be present and that's a very big challenge not just for the president elect but for the modern community as well still to come on the program britain expresses concern as hong kong bans a pro independence political party for the first time since the territory was handed back twenty one years ago. and we'll tell you why new regulations in china
