2:16 pm
including meat, plants and medicines. maybe that was the world. it was the protocol could have worked more sensitively implemented. but the world has now moved on and we now face is very serious situation. the preschool is not working, is completely lost. consent in one community, nor learns is not doing the thing. it was set up to protect the belfast could friday agreements, in fact, doing the opposite. he has to change. so what exactly is the protocol that the e, u and britain are divided about? well, no, that island is the only area where the u. k. and the block physically meet, that's a 500 kilometer border of keeping that open is a crucial part of the 1998 good friday agreement. the accord ended the long running conflict in northern ireland that killed more than 3000 people. to avoid any physical border checkpoints, the protocol crated accustomed divide in the iris seen stead, which is inside the u. k. and to add to the complicated process,
2:17 pm
northern ireland must follow you rules as a condition of briggs. it overseen by the european court of justice. you case adamant that must change with andrew simmons joins us live now from belfast. andrew, so the u. k. making some very big demands of the e. u. was the response likely to be them from brussels? well it's like as a bait, in fact is almost certain to be very generous when it comes to the whole issue of border checks. of the customs areas are all on the ports here and also regulations on goods. and it's set to be something like half of the half of the customs checks will be lifted on on all of food products. not, not all food products, but most of them, and also apply products as well. and medicines will be free flowing, so that making major concessions, but the issue of the european judges, the european court of justice being,
2:18 pm
having the overarching role in this treaty. they say that's an immovable, immovable situation. it's a red line, whereas the u. k is pushing hard on it, but what's going on with the people on the ground business? people seem to be thinking, well, this is good news where we can look forward to this. but on the other hand, if that's now going to be the big stand off with your what, what, what's gonna happen with the e u and the u. k. relations, could it get much more bumpy than it's been already? with me right now is seamus lanny from logistics you k, you're pretty well qualified to tell us what is like on the ground. what's your response to these promising noise is coming from brussels. it's hugely encouraging . today really, andre, i think it's beyond what we were expecting myself and colleagues from the business community we've been speaking to the e u and the u. k. government, over several months only a couple of weeks ago, i met my theft coverage. i outlined the problems of the northern i am protocol and was no secret. there were problems with the protocol, there's benefits and we want to build new benefits. and today when we hear what the
2:19 pm
are potentially offering here, obviously we need to wait to see the legal text. but this officer at the answers, a lot of the problems that we've outlined specifically around the checks and controls of goods come to northern ireland in great britain. so what you'll take only a u. k. government stotts. not only that, the northern ireland, the unionist parties which a role obviously behind this, this as aggression directed at the european union. well, we have to remember what's the whole purpose of the north are and protocol. the northern protocol here is here to protect the people of northern ireland, the business community on a very delicate piece process. so what we've outlined my, my case and other business and trust, we want to grow the economy here we want the best of both worlds. we have unfettered access to the e u market unto the great british market under the northern protocol, where the problem stems from was this flow of goods coming into northern ireland from great britain. because technically, those goods ran from the single market. these moves these mitigations put forward by the e u today,
2:20 pm
and addresses our concerns. i think what we need to see and clearly you know what you've said there, we need the u. k. and the you to set, dine, i have some very competent and some for a mature discussions to come to an agreement because at the end of the day the protocol here is about northern ireland, not about anywhere else. well, my thing that this was posturing on the part of david frost, the u. k. directs it minister when he, he was quite outlandish in his effective attack. only open you knew something undemocratic. and in the way, do you think that this, that this politicking is dangerous? i, it doesn't help you know, the business community what we want. we want stability and clarity. we have businesses every day, ask and else, you know, it is north article be a place 10 baston and when you have maybe political talk in the background that can't put some uncertainty there it effects investment and affects basically, you know, should i do business with northern ireland, so it doesn't help. we just want the agreement as soon as possible. it's all about basically getting this done sooner rather than later. seamus, thank you very much indeed for your thoughts on that's interesting points. there
2:21 pm
are a representative of the business community and indeed the whole logistics operation, which is directly affected by this see border. but the politics very different. interesting to see a later on i read something like 56 hours away. when we hear from the european union in brussels on exactly what they intend to actually make in the way of concessions or i to andrew simmons lie for us there in belfast. andrew, thank you. now a court in algeria has symptoms. the brother of late president abdel aziz but a fleet to 2 years in prison sire. but a flicker has been charge alongside other former officials for obstruction of justice, abuse of office and inciting the falsification of official documents. in september 2019, but of legal was sentenced to 15 years in jail, a plotting against the state it was made acquitted of those charges can his president to who were kenyatta says he will not recognize a ruling by the international court of justice. the judgment largely favor somalia
2:22 pm
and a long running maritime board. a dispute at stake is control of a 100000 square kilometer section of the indian ocean. it's rich in oil and gas. kenya says it's maritime borders should be drawn in a straight line eastwards parallel to the line of latitude. but somalia says the border should be expanded southwards, extending its land border. this decision is in the circumstances a 0 sum game, which will only strain the relations between our 2 countries. it will also reverse the social, political, and economic gains and potentially aggravate the piece a security situation in the fragile horn of africa region, one of my ela kenya, should instead see the decision of the court as an opportunity to strengthen the relationship of the 2 countries and the collaboration of their neighboring people, somalia did not choose to be a neighbor with kenyana,
2:23 pm
but it was the willing of the almighty god so that we're forced to live as peaceful neighbors. so marya was committed to that forever and welcomes it now. pattern. so it has more now from i wrote this statement by kenya's present to working at a comes as no surprise even before the court fooling our government officials had been saying the will not respected somewhat anticipating the outcome of it. they say that they will defend kenya will defend its territory. they will not give up an inch of it is also hot from president of somalia for module who says that this is an opportunity for the 2 countries to sit and talk with very unclear to see with a king is willing to take that position right now. because they have held a very hard line position, if you remember, can you withdrew from this case back in march. and now it has said that it will not suspect the decision of the court. the court does, it does not have the decision to enforce its rule inside. good, very difficult to see what's going to happen going forward. the court's ruling,
2:24 pm
however, is fine. all the that the decision of the court each final. but then any group country can go a place, it's grievances to the un security council. so a lot of people are waiting to see what's going to happen going forward a, is that going to be a push for more talks between the 2 countries? is kenya going to soft and it sounds a bit, but at this moment, kenya says it will not respect the quarter court decision, and it will do anything to protect its boundaries. protests in peru have gathered around the statue of christopher columbus and the capital to call attention to the treatment of indigenous people. they say colonization crated deep inequality is on the continent. the protest comes during hispanic heritage month, which come rates the arrival of columbus in the americas. a 2nd group gathered to protect the sasha u. s. immigration agents will no longer carry out. mass raids at workplace is to detain undocumented immigrants. it's all part of the president joe biden shift

2:26 pm
that actually putting them in detention. what i was saying is they are going to target the employers that not just hire undocumented labor, but actually a bullying that undocumented labor, meaning they pay them some standard weight. they get them sub standard working conditions. people are constantly having access to it on the work site. people are you done the work site? so to the extent that those employers don't have a market for a document that immigrants anymore and probably on balance, a good thing because you really don't want those employers operating because that's not the system that at both ethic all or is it even helpful to america? writ large to have employer about their exploiting workers in that manner. the u. s. as it will open its land borders with canada and mexico next month, a fully vaccinated foreign nationals. the restrictions for non essential travelers
