7:01 pm
a time statement that he doesn't know when they're putting alt of course in the past two weeks we've seen the plan for up the withdrawal of troops from now where we have an all time high not all and there's been shifting alliances in those two weeks we've seen turkey been going to war fulton sending its tanks rolling across the border. topping their allies within the syrian rebel groups to get us cruel sauce possible to none because they want to get out the kurdish y p d forces from here of course the. kurdish y.p.u. fight is sensing that they have been pushed to the wall and abundant by the u.s. have also changed alliances they have called in on the invites of the syrian armed forces to come on to help them and protect them against the impending. offensive on by city now. when you look at the ground them how the pots and stuff shifted

7:03 pm
long been saying that the only solution to the of one problem is the political one not a military one it should be remembered that when the u.s. led invasion took place after the september eleventh attacks in the u.s. the united states that main target but then they said they would go against the taliban. on and we've seen the dollar bond much stronger controlling majority of the provinces and having control of their targets don of course has borne the brunt of the blowback of the alvar and walt just yesterday progress on the military spokesman left and major general who are speaking to the media and he said to get started stand to gain from end of one piece because there is no peace in afghanistan and pakistan really continued to feel the effects of the of one wall this is a country which is hosting millions of refugees and their day they did it their day
7:04 pm
great doubt that what happened there not a lot is done so. clear and also the fact they do not dictate the water no one has done it want to get out and a blame game had begun many people will tell you they're branded a war then the blame game even irrational. saw fourteen rating up one it started saying that it became russia because all of that didn't rage and economic cost the american have already spent a trillion dollars and of what it's done so that is now an expectation that the americans want to leave but what kind of vacuum where do they leave behind it's something that everybody is quite nervous about on both sides of the border came in did indeed come out because of pakistan has been accused by many all all should we say parts of the poles of the pakistani establishment have been accused by many as actually having a hand in the war in afghanistan by virtue of at least offering sanctuary if not
7:05 pm
actively encouraging parts of the afghan taliban so is that still the situation and is this something that perhaps the pakistanis are going to be addressing living human ministration under him on kong. well first of all i need to have told the americans to reassess their policy which is florida according to pakistan the americans are looking forward to meeting the pakistani leadership in the near future perhaps within the next few months but did important to note that pakistani military had several operations in their tribal areas their fencing the border raid of one a stand and they are saying that if the americans have any tangible evidence to suggest that there is a sanctuary that are using stand as a launching pad that they should give that information to the pakistanis they did understood now that the taliban are able to launch their campaign there not run it
7:06 pm
down as far where the north and started. where there. can just less than forty eight hours to go it so that taliban are controlling most of the of and do not need to stand as they may have needed in the beginning when the u.s. launched its invasion against afghanistan come on live in the pakistan capital islamabad thank you. we've got a lot more to come on this ounces in the news hour including these protests public on the north and the blockade remains in place after an especially grim year for the people of gaza we look at whether there's any hope for twenty nineteen. and a slowdown in china takes a bite out of apple's process. a fantastic four for manchester united's new manager how he's already matched the face of a legend joe we'll explain in sports. the

7:08 pm
with mexico. the garbage cans were overflowing outside the white house on the twelfth day of the partial government shutdown inside the president had convened his full cabinet to extol the virtues of his wall and blame the democrats for a budget impasse that donald trump and said he would take full responsibility for just a few weeks earlier i will be the one to shut it down i'm not going to blame you for it he then spoke to the press and though to be said he was now insisting on five point six billion dollars for the wall not even the two point five billion for a barrier but the white house had offered democrats as a compromise once the shutdown began. it. could be a long time and it could be quickly could be a long time it's it's too important a subject to walk away from later in the afternoon the democratic leadership made its way to the white house for the first direct talks with the president in weeks however this was organized as a border security briefing by department of homeland security officials as
7:09 pm
a negotiation clearly the president was continuing to frame the shutdown as a failure of democrats to understand what he says is an emergency at the southern border even as illegal border crossings are at historic lows and after the meeting the democrats said their plans have not changed they are now feeling the heat is not helping the president it is not helping the republicans to be the owners of the shutdown well as the president to open up government we are giving him a republican path to do that why would he not deal with incoming house speaker nancy pelosi has made it clear that she intends to pass several bills in the house on thursday to reopen the government with one point. three billion dollars for border security but no funding for trump's wall but to end the shutdown the senate will need to pass those bills as well and the republican leadership there says it has no intention of even debating them as i've said consistently for
7:10 pm
the last two weeks the senate what are ways to considering a democratic bill which cannot pass the chamber in which the president. the president didn't receive five billion dollars for the war when republicans controlled both houses of congress now that power is split that goal seems all but impossible talks are being planned for friday she able to see al-jazeera washington the apples fall says donald trump's trade center for china is at least partly to blame for the tech giant losing billions of dollars worth of business tim cook warned of lower than expected earnings for the first quarter of the year also citing we could demand from china the trumpet ministration fire the first shots in the trade war which is in both countries impose tariffs on each other's goods shown nichols is a reporter at the register or a tech news and opinion website and he argues that the trade tensions aren't actually to blame. i think what apple would like to do is really kind of as much as
7:11 pm
possible cite china fight the trade war slaves issues as the cause of this but as you noted the over the last couple years apple has significantly increased the price of the i phone we've tim cook special explanation of this is you're seeing kind of a combination of the trade wars kind of causing problems in china kind of worries over the economy and that's making people less likely to go in and purchase apple products so it's so you're seeing both apple saying this is the train where the economic policies but it's also you know our products are more expensive and fewer people want to go to the store and pay that much for a phone for hours trading it was something like seven point five percent drop in apple's share price i mean this isn't a huge hit for apple as far as the shortfall i believe it's only about four or five billion out of an eighty four billion dollar revenue. for the quarter but if this is something that investors are paying attention to and they did punish apple

7:20 pm
a saudi court for the first time over the murders jamal khashoggi now let's remember the journalist was last seen alive on october the second he went into the saudi consulate in istanbul he was never seen again the next day turkish security sources said he had information that he'd been killed inside the consulate in that his body had been dismembered saudi arabia rejected these claims and described them as lies turkish media published images of a fifteen member saudi team that arrived in istanbul on the very same day that he disappeared and said the group was at the consulate when the journalists arrived there from this point onward evidence linking not only saudi arabia but crown prince mohammed bin sound man to his death has been mounting in mid october the saudis finally admitted that he'd been killed but they said it was accidental
7:21 pm
that turkey insists it was murder and on november the tense it shared recordings from inside the consulate with britain france germany the u.s. as well as with the saudis and five days after that riyadh charged eleven suspects with the killing. let's go live to sin and cos our correspondent is in the turkish capital ankara and said i'm the news then that eleven these eleven suspects in saudi arabia have now face their first court hearing and the prosecutor is seeking the death penalty for five of them what kind of impact is that going to have on turkish authorities. martin first let me remind everyone that we don't know the names of those fifty eleven suspects who have been detained after. his murder and we don't know the names all those who are actually who are actually the asked for that's a penalty and this is listen this is this is the same way since the beginning of
7:22 pm
the investigation that was launched in riyadh and turkish officials have always complained about that also on the other side when it comes to is solid you prosecutor's office the officer has an uncle think twice and also i have to remind that the prosecutor asked for the death penalty but the court hasn't ruled anything like that so these are very important details i spoke to the foreign ministry right before our live and i was told i was actually given a diplomatic response saying that they would be reassessing the developments but of course this is a member what the turkish officials have always stated to turkey's foreign minister have always complained that the saudis had no corporation or collaborations on the investigation when the prosecutor came to turkey and met with this counterpart with the fifteen men with a delegation of him of his. according to the turkish officials he gave nothing he
7:23 pm
doesn't give any evidence and turks always wanted to know. the content of the interviews the saudi prosecutor's office held with those suspects those suspects whose names we have never heard about so it is important to know the names of those people because. as you know for instance a member a fifteen member hit squads came to kill them out over the second and we know the names of those people for instance one of them was al took bheki who's name who is known to be a forensic expert and the prosecutor's office that to bake it is thought to have this member to mouth to shoot his body. we heard that he was detained in saudi arabia but then we learned that he is living in a villa of a pool far from riyadh duff so. after the turks are suspicious that the saudi arabia will really provide justice for this case
7:24 pm
especially. after these incidents for instance one of the members of the hit squad albo stein they died in a suspicious car accident according to the investigation reports and turkey right after this murder he went to riyadh so turks actually see that every quest of a death penalty on this suspects will actually this silence this investigation so that turkish investigate it turkish investigators turkish persecutors will not be able to learn anything about their testimonies so until now there is nothing we have heard from the turkish officials that because uncle is very busy today and there are official visits there are delegations from the united states but for sure when we look at what they reacted on till now it seems turkish officials will not be a welcoming the death penalty to them because we live in the turkish capital ankara thank you. well let's go to the democratic republic of congo now because the
