3:50 am
james mattis becomes the latest high profile member of trump's administration to resign over policy differences is announcement also coincides with reports that trump has ordered the withdrawal of up to seven thousand u.s. troops from afghanistan which would harm its presence there let's get more or less from jordan who is live for us in washington it's been an extraordinary twenty four hours there in washington what are you hearing about the implications all this could have for u.s. foreign policy. well there's a lot of people like to talk about the fact that bipartisanship is rather rare here in washington but on this matter of gen matters deciding that he could no longer serve as the defense secretary there is bipartisan agreement that the future of u.s. foreign policy is very much in jeopardy and that indeed u.s. national security may be at risk mario we've just received
3:51 am
a statement from senator dianne feinstein a longtime expert on foreign affairs who calls mattresses departure alarming and she once again deplored the president's decision to not just pull u.s. forces out of syria but also to cut by more than half the number of u.s. troops in afghanistan who were there in a support role to help the afghan military. protect the country from attacks from the taliban and other groups and also to provide a sort of mental us support effort to the central government as it tries to negotiate a lasting peace treaty with the taliban so there is a real sense that the united states is basically walking away from its traditional role of being engaged in foreign policy but also maybe heading into an area where its own security may be at risk and that's right there is mounting concern there about the impending departure of james mattis and. this sort of isolationist policy
3:52 am
on the part of trump how how difficult could things get fan going forward. well one of the things that people tend to forget is that after you know nearly twenty years of a very forward leaning some would say activist foreign policy that it was led by the u.s. president you're seeing perhaps the start of a new pushback from congress which traditionally has deferred to the white house on foreign policy but we have seen in recent weeks that congress is saying wait a second we have something to say about the u.s. is a role in foreign affairs the u.s. is role in starting or ending wars the u.s. his role in trying to promote human rights good governance and other issues to protect human rights and so you're going to see much more pushback i would predict from both republicans and democrats and there's going to be probably a lot of very tough questioning about whoever the president decides to nominate to
3:53 am
replace jim matheson over at the pentagon when you consider that it's not an easy thing one to just pull forces out of a zone you're going to want someone to be able to explain to congress how this can be done while still protecting the u.s. as national security concerns thank you very much for the latest from washington on that story in jordan. meanwhile take is present as you type i don't who has been a strong critic of american policy in syria as welcome the announcement and in return has vowed to get rid of. santa harder has more. the turkish military will stay on alert along the border with syria but the planned to cross border offensive against what turkey considers terrorists east of the euphrates is now on hold the target was the syrian kurdish armed group the white peachey which controls four hundred kilometer stretch of territory along the border . president treasure of tayyip erdogan cited
3:54 am
a common understanding with washington as the reason for the perspire and went sort of their criticism in question number two since the beginning of the syrian crisis our diplomatic contacts with the us left us disappointed in terms of the results the trumpet ministration inherited problems that we experienced particularly cheering the obama presidency in face to face meetings and phone calls president trump and i have seen that we shared views on a range of issues related to syria yet the translation of the agreement to the ground was overdue and to fickle and finally in recent days we have been able to see the clearest and most encouraging statements to date from the administration trump announced american troops would pull out from north east syria this week the us president chose turkey over washington's alliance with the white p.g.a. a main source of tension between the two allies the decision was welcomed in ankara but the foreign minister met little childish provided more details on what turkey
3:55 am
expects to happen next we need to. have already. started. he said two things one is called the nation the other one is that turkey will never let out any country any power to feel their work is very important because she is from two days there are lots of explanations from the minister of foreign affairs of france that they will feel that turkey will never let out. a delegation from the white peachy dominated syria democratic forces is trying to reach out to paris to seek support following the u.s. decision to leave it seems the message was not to france but to other powers as well the s.d.f. is believed to be reengaging with the syrian government to cut
3:56 am
a deal that will allow it to stay in its autonomous enclave in the north east turkey has repeatedly said that it has no territorial ambitions in syria and its fight against the y.p. g. is about its national security interests it believes the y p g is the syrian offshoot of the outlawed kurdistan workers' party or the p.k. k. which is fighting for autonomy in south east turkey. turkey also backs what it calls the rightful owners of y p g controlled areas some arab tribes and others have accused the kurdish force of capturing predominantly arab lands and its military campaign against eisel those tribes who say they are being prevented from returning home or throwing their weight behind turkey which seems to be coordinating an arrangement on the future of that corner of syria with the united states senate. a check on the turkey syria border the u.s. government could be hurtling towards a shutdown the senate is carre debating
3:57 am
a finance bill that includes more than five billion dollars for a wall along the border with mexico but it has very little chance of passing a shutdown would mean all but essential government services would cease to function president says his administration is prepared for a quote very long shutdown and lessie gets its way. so now it's up to the democrats as to whether or not we're going to shut down tonight i hope we don't but we're totally prepared for a very long you know. this is our only chance whoever you are millions because of the world the way. you yeah great order your ear. for more on this let's join alan fischer in washington alan is there still a chance that a government shutdown or partial shutdown might be a void it. i think it's highly unlikely i think we've moved in the last twenty four hours from unlikely to almost certain and how did we get here well donald trump
3:58 am
seemed as if he was going to sign a continuing resolution which would help fund the government at least until the middle of february be wouldn't get any money for his border wall and certainly that's what was passed by the senate just a couple of days ago but in the meantime a number of right wing commentators decided to criticize donald trump once seeing what's the point of his presidency if we're not going to build the wall that he promised the other seeing that he was gutless for not pushing forward with this the idea that the money would have to come from the u.s. government rather than make scores donald trump had promised conveniently forgotten so after the senate passed their resolution it was due to go to the house but the house thought well hold on a second if donald trump doesn't want this he then called the leadership and said i want my wall and they passed a resolution that includes five billion dollars for his border wall will he get it well to get anything through the senate remember one hundred seats in the senate you need sixty votes and the republicans only have fifty one at the moment so it is
3:59 am
difficult for them to get anything through and the reality is don't trump won't sign any bill that doesn't have five billion dollars for his border wall and the democrats would approve anything that gives donald trump five billion dollars for his border wall and so we're at this impasse donald trump says he's quite happy for there to be a long shutdown and you remember that ten days ago in the very bizarre meeting in the oval office in the white house with the two democratic leaders chuck schumer and nancy pelosi donald trump says if there's a shutdown that will be up to me that will be my fall but now he's saying this is all on the democrats and they have to do something to try and divert the shutdown which is no just over nine hours away so we started two thousand and eighteen with the shutdown and it looks as if we're going to end the twenty eighteen with the shutdown of a thanks very much allan brings up to speed with those developments and washington thank you.
4:00 am
u.n. security council has voted to send observers to yemen to monitor a fragile truce between the saudi led coalition and who think rebels a vote concerns the implementation of a cease fire and yemen's key port city of data and the withdrawal of rival forces from the area it comes after a u.n. brokered peace negotiations or yemen's warring parties agreed to a cease fire in sweden last week or to find out more let's speak to our diplomatic editor james bays at u.n. headquarters in new york what does this mean for yemen and the progress that was made in sweden the other week well i think what the security council is trying to do here first is to endorse what happened last week in sweden and to make it legally binding so that very fragile shaky cease fire now is backed by a u.n. secure.
