lavrov said this morning and repeated by president putin that the the pilot if you well that was tried out in a good sense since last autumn has not really worked out because al-qaeda about the north has really expanded within the city and its surrounding so the idea that. that turkey will simply implementing the added model through out in northern syria and be able to pick control of the kurdish areas is not exactly acceptable to the united states or to russia because they don't see the utility if it did is going to be the model for the rest of the. northern part of the city and that's why i think what putin wanted probably is for the turks to give up on it live and to lit the syrian regime take care or take control of it live and other

6:06 am
a strong history between them. sponsored and a host of the darfur peace talks for example is invested or made billions of dollars worth of investments over the years and often there has been an alignment between his vision for the region when it comes to significant issues like for example palestine and that's of sudan as well speaking to our jazeera the sudanese foreign minister the this was or he described the meeting between president bashir and sure i mean from a as a brotherly meeting he said that they would discuss regional issues and that the protests in sudan were too small of a topic to be the focus of these bilateral discussions having said that however they are significance protests they are the longest protests that have taken place since she came to power roughly thirty years ago we are talking about more than forty people killed widespread condemnation from around the world as to how the security services and the sudanese governments have treated those protesters but
6:07 am
information as far as a mother but she was concerned he wants to show that he is still very much a statesman still very much in control he has no issue leaving the country to visit other world leaders assured he believes to come back with still in power so a significant trip in the sense that there is a lot to discuss between these two governments but tightlipped both sides have been with regards to revealing as to what they've agreed on if there's been any deals and how to move forward in an organism launching a situation in the sudanese capital khartoum. people in sudan are saying they will not stop demonstrating against president bashir until he actually steps down again that is something he has repeatedly said that he will not do until elections come in twenty twenty and even then there is a chance he might run again there's already a proposed change that is stable in front of the parliament to try to amend the constitution for the bashir could run for another term but people are saying they
6:08 am
don't want him to continue running for be under thirty years that he's already been in power they say that during his term in office the country has been ruled with corruption and that the economy has been in a downward spiral now the protest started on the nineteenth of december because of lack of bread in the city of ottawa but that quickly morphed into calls for the president to step down the rights groups say at least forty people have been killed but the government is disputing that figure they see the people who have been killed so far is at least twenty seven there are also concerns about activists being arrested in the protests the government has said that they've arrested eight hundred and sixteen people last week but then people are saying that opposition groups and other activists are saying that the number could be as high as over a thousand people many of them with their whereabouts unknown and their health conditions also unknown people are saying they will not continue they will not stop demonstrating there are more protests planned in the coming days tomorrow is that there is a nationwide protest called by the sudanese professional association which has been spearheading the calls for the president to step down now and people are saying
6:09 am
that they're very determined they're very keen to see their president step down it's not clear how far this would go but both sides are very determined the president is determined to stay in power and people determined to see him go kumi naidoo the general of amnesty international is calling on the sudanese government to respect citizens rights to peaceful protest. people need to recognize that for those who have been organized the level of pain that the sudanese people have been feeling economically has been devastated the response of the state has been disproportionate overwhelming as so and been must remind those three of the basic freedoms that was always defended is the freedom of association that right of people to. fight for what they want the freedom of assembly that's a right to protest in the freedom of expression that the right to be able to pitch a story in the media and these three feet of this is. extremely restricted and we call on the sudanese government to really pull back from the use of repression
6:10 am
right now to respect the human rights obligations and to ensure that the right to peaceful protests legitimate peaceful process. is respected. is the chief of mission at the u.s. embassy in sudan he joins us now live from washington thanks very much indeed for your time what do you think. the moment i think his goal was to achieve financial support from carter it's not clear that he i suspect that at some point in the not distant future there will be an announcement of some kind of financial aid to. buy the government of qatar so i mean he seems to be getting other support from elsewhere financial help from turkey and russia with all that if he does get that kind of what will that be enough for him to get a grip on the. no i don't i don't think that xterm will support is going to make
6:11 am
the difference here may prolong his ability to stand power for a period of time but this is essentially an internal sudanese issue has rather widespread support around the country and i don't think that aid from from our from russia or even from turkey and turkey hasn't really indicated it was going to provide anything i don't think it's going to make that much of a difference it's complicating the situation a bit from the international side in that you're starting to see players outside sudan take sides on that question but beyond that it's essentially going to be determined by a combination of people in the street in the sudan and the sudanese security forces if they remain loyal to share or not you mentioned that people taking sides i mean we've had the u.s. state department condemning the sudanese government's use of force again against protest as in issuing a statement saying they condemn the use of force including these have live fire excessive use of tear gas by the security sydney security forces how much how bad
6:12 am
is the crackdown that do we have a clear idea of how bad it is. it seems to be to be getting worse although i'm not well positioned to judge the nature of the crackdown inside khartoum but judging by the comments from the american government i would gather that they have it has information that suggests that it is becoming a more difficult situation the comment was much stronger than the one that was made earlier this month by the troika. the u.s. the u.k. and norway which made similar remarks but not quite as strongly stated so i think it's an indication that the u.s. is increasingly concerned about the situation on the ground and how much influence does the u.s. have with a country like sudan these days. the the nature of the contact is is better than it has been in recent years but it's still rather limited
6:13 am
when the us does not have an ambassador in khartoum it has not had one for many years we have a charge a deaf air there have been discussions ongoing discussions about trying to remove sudan from the u.s. state list of terrorism there has been some progress in that direction but i think these protests put aside basically all discussion of that topic i think the united states wants to remain engaged in discussions with the government but it's also watching very closely the the nature of the protests on the street davidson thank you very much indeed to feel for us and some thank you carol. still to come on out is there this news out with me to ring the refugees who've been forced to leave india after being harassed and targeted. purchase in hong kong i've been you know that would make insulting the chinese national anthem a crime. serena really amusing snatches defeat from the jaws of victory she crashes
