12:00 am
[000:00:00;00] with mm hm. mm hm. this is al jazeera ah hello, i'm north taylor. this is down here in hughes. i live from london coming up. oh, russia says it's left with little room for optimism on ukraine. it still insists it
12:01 am
doesn't want to go to war. ok if i so new military ruler vows to restore constitutional order, but only when certain conditions are met. on years whereas in its 1st female president, providence, within her party mean a rocky start perceived mara, castro on jonah all on the polish side of the border with belarus, where construction has begun on a wall to keep my grants and refugees. and i'm, he does them in dough with all your sports news. iran have become the 1st nation from the asian confederation to qualify for the 20. 22 will come in cost us better, more coming up later. this is our hm rushes as those little ground for optimism, not reading formal responses from the u. s. and nato,
12:02 am
to its demands concerning ukraine. foreign miss love, ralph said the use document contained no positive response on the main issue. russia demanding nature rule out ukraine from ever becoming a member of the military lines. while a 2nd official warned a new nuclear power process with the u. s. was unavoidable, unless urgent measures were taken to ensure restraint. in the past few, as you, as president jo biden's, folks with ukraine's president followed him, is let ski on the phone a call. the white house described as a cheque in russian defense ministry released this video of su, 35 fighter jets landing. it's been a russian airfield. a military exercises have been taking place all week. now the former soviet republics border with nature members, poland, and lithuania and coast to its southern flank with ukraine. and fisher joins us live from washington, d. c. so we heard anything yet about that phone call with lensky. no official reader coming from the white house as yet,
12:03 am
don't expect any great insights. we're going to get the usual things that they talked about, mutual security, the way forward, perhaps they will talk about possible financial support for ukraine was in the current state of limbo. but this is all just part of the build up that the u. s. c . all the books that they need to put in place and we'll see more of that in the coming days at their ongoing talks on capitol hill. national security advisor jim sullivan has been involved in briefing some of the senior republicans and democrats on capitol hill. so has antony blinking, who is the secretary of state, those confidential briefings are still ongoing. on monday, the qatar, amir will arrive, they will talk about afghanistan, which is important. but they'll also talk about the provision of natural gas to germany because the united states is already said the north stream to project will not happen if there is any russian invasion of ukraine. that, of course,
12:04 am
would put germany at a huge disadvantage. it's the largest economy in europe. it would cause them severe hardship. they want to make sure that there is the possibility of alternative sources. and kat are, might be where that comes from. and then on the 7th of february, we have the german chancellor coming to washington, d. c. for a meeting, he will bring some information from the, the, the, the group that meets to discuss the issue in ukraine with russia included. but also he'll be looking for guarantees from joe biden, that there is a united action coming against russia if it crosses the border. and also that there are provisions in place to make sure that fuel supplies continue to europe with some of the wash weather of the winter still to come. so there's a lot of talk going on behind the scenes. joe biden clearly wants to send a message. look, if there is a problem here. if russia crosses the border, there will be sanctions. we will get the economy will target banking. and we could
12:05 am
possibly even target vladimir putin himself. the best way to get through this is through negotiation and diplomatic means that there is a united front here. and also the americans are saying, look, diplomat diplomacy might even go as far as the summit meeting between joe biden and vladimir putin to sort things over ukraine as well. so that is still an avenue. so discussions with ukrainian president just giving them a heads up of where things are, where things are going and who joe biden sees things developing in the next few days or so. alan fish, thank you very much indeed. dosage. larry has been following developments from moscow with me hearing from the kremlin spokesperson dmitri pascall, who says that there isn't really much. i'm point of being optimistic at this stage given what the response has been. and dad's written response, which was hand delivered by the us ambassador to russia last night at the foreign
12:06 am
ministry, has now in the hands of russian president vladimir putin, the kremlin confirmed that president putin is now studying what has been given to him, and he will decide how to proceed and what the next moves will be. meanwhile, we've been hearing from the russian foreign minister, sir gay lover, who spoke earlier on thursday, and he was also not very pleased. let's hear some of what he had to say. but global normal will proof. as for the main issue, there is no positive reaction in this document. i will remind you that the main issue is our film position about unacceptability of michael's folder proliferation to the east and place him of a salt equipment which can represent danger for the russian federation. closing. well, all sides have said that diplomacy is very much still a path that they want to pursue, given the differences they still have. it appears that the russians and the americans have come to some kind of an understanding about the secondary issues that there is room for negotiations there,
12:07 am
but it appears the problem is in the main issue that russia has about nato's expansion. and that is something that cannot agree on what i believe me. it has been speaking to people in mario pole in southeastern ukraine. the hurdles of, i'm a lot of people, there is a feeling that, that the moment. oh, really, the whole thing is going between russia and the u. s. and ukraine wants to make sure that there remains a center of that conversation. and certainly note up as sort of byproduct of that. all. that is a sentiment we also heard among many people, they said at the end of the day, this is a fight that's got a crisis as going on between due to super powers to us and russia. it's about really expanding influence in this part of the world. and ukrainians want to make sure that they are not a consequence of that. but that the actually, the real threat they're living under is something that's going to be dealt with. while european nations are worried that the crisis could affect their gas supplies,
12:08 am
as because europe gets more than 40 percent of its natural gas from russia, about a 3rd of that passes through ukraine. european gas prices rose more than 30 percent early this month. as russia cut supplies to the west, causing shortages is threatening to cut supplies further if sanctions are imposed and not just gas, but oil and metals to some countries are more reliant than others. germany gets about half its supplies from russia, the check republican croatia, about 2 thirds in finland. almost all. dominic came reports from berlin. any cut to those supplies would also hurt russia. problem for the german government, as it has been full successive german governments stretching back decades now, is that in so far as rusher is concerned, the german government feels a historic sense of guilt for the actions of nazi germany during world war 2, where tens of millions of soviet citizens, which obviously includes russians, ukrainians, b, l, a. russians,
12:09 am
and many other nations to who were part of the ussr. and as a consequence of that, when the german government wants to put pressure on the russian government, it will not be in the form of providing armaments to ukraine. what they will do they say, and increasingly so is they will act to impose sanctions. the german government has said it is prepared to take the consequences of refusing to switch on the north stream to gas pipeline. it's going to cost the german government a considerable amount of money. it could cost the european economy a considerable amount of money. but the view here is that if russian gas supply was switched off completely, that would also cost the russian economy. $200000000.00 a day is piped in terms of revenue through natural gas piped in to russia for what it pipes to europe will that would dry up very quickly. and so the view here is no amendments to ukraine,
12:10 am
but crippling sanctions on moscow. whatever the price may be, whether the german economy suffers or not, that's what they're prepared to do, but they won't arm the ukrainians. i think ocean is a presser, and the department of government and public policy at the university of essex jones, his life and culture stand by skype. thanks very much for being with us. as russia, as medicare is not happy with the us, is response. i mean, while the are still, it's still saying that and dialogue is the way forward. where do you think this is heading? waltz 1st. thank you for having me. i think both russia and the united states know that there is no chance for ukraine to join the nato alliance with unanimous membership approval. and we know for quite some time, both france and germany have been reluctant and actually refused to allow ukraine to join us. even president biden more recently has discussed some of the issues he has with ukraine joining nato memberships. i think right now we're in
12:11 am
a situation where russia is pushing to see how much it can get the united states to agree publicly to certain things. but i think everybody knows that new ukraine is less likely going to be joining nato anytime soon. i mean, we've had a little bit. so in the last couple of minutes, we had a couple lines coming out from there have been released by the ukraine present side of the conversation between biden, to zalinski and ukraine. president saying a disgust of the mission to promote efforts on de escalation and agreed on joint actions for the future. what kind of things do you think that might encompass joint actions for future? well, i think, you know, the united states can help your crane by giving it, you know, some training advice. coordination they've in the past have offered them to join, not nato, but to kind of have a alliance member, some type of an alliance with them in which they can provide them with a lot of resources,
12:12 am
short of having them joint because of the officially joined than if any attacked occurs than ukraine would be able to invoke article 5, which the united states invoke after. for example, the attack on a $911.00 which nato members and came to it's 8 in a fonts done. so i think this is why the united states have been very reluctant. but i think president putin, i mean, one thing that's been interesting is, president putin has not been preparing his country for war. the state media is not preparing russia for war. so they seemed to be only bolstering this at the international and trying to push europe in the u. s. and less so it inside of russia, which again, makes it seem more that the president put in is trying to see how for he can push the west and the u. s. unless that he's going to attack, this does not mean that a war can happen, but it might be more due to a miscalculation them. really a grand strategy of invasion? yes, i mean, let me contact me cuz i mean on the, the build up has been built not only on the, on the russian side,
12:13 am
but in the surrounding countries from western countries are getting more troops and equipment as own. give us some of some historic context. how dangerous is the situation? well, i mean, loss of historian speak about the fact that if united states and china had talked and did not have so many missed calculation was dutchman, we would not have had the korean war. and that's something we constantly look back to and think about and so, right now, russian movement about over a 130000 troops so far what it seems like they're moving bigger arsenals, not really what they would need to carry out the invasion right now. so they don't have evan called off their soldiers. they haven't done a medical field. and i think the united states and the u. k, in particular, are embroiled in domestic loose right now. and what we worry about, and when we talk about political science is like the diversionary theory or
12:14 am
argument is in some sense you want to bolster foreign threat in order to alleviate some of the domestic pressure and issues. and so in times like these, all it takes is some things very small for a word to be stated. some have told us or his we found out that there is a president saddam hussein invaded kuwait, was because of a snap decision when he was a threatened or told that a, you know, there's hopes of trying to make sure that i'm selling of oil at a lower price in order to ensure that every woman in iraq would be a, you know, have to process to herself. so things like that can lead to spark. i mean, yes, he had been bolstering, but it was dot that triggered the attack suddenly. so that's what we were about, something like that, a statement, a miss statement, why somebody leading to either the russians to invade or someone on the,
12:15 am
your crenan side on to take action and that we can't roll back. but and go from thank you very much, need for them to us. thank you. up in the out 0 and use our u. s. president joe biden pays tribute to retiring justice steven briar and promises his replacement will be the 1st black woman to sit on supreme court. and, sir, are you delaying with the gray rebels? absolute not. no. escape from party? 8 questions for british prime minister bars johnson on a trip to wales and ash party closes in on becoming the 1st local player to win the australian open. incentive we is. ah. picking a faces military leader says the nation will only return to civilian rule when the military considers the time is right. an arm groups operating in the north of the country are defeated a tenant colonel, for law. he dominga addressed the nation for the 1st time since the soldiers
12:16 am
deposed the civilian government in a qu, on monday, the amoeba was promoted in december by now deposed president aka boy, to the commander of a strategic military region during the crew cab. oh, he was detained and imprisoned. was whereabouts are unknown persons? nicholas hack is falling events for us in the capitol where i could do as i did the military leader clarify his intentions of the country. i mean, absolutely he. i mean, he literally put up this beating of a drum for, for putting the country on this pass on this war footing. he really tried to unite the country, saying that at stake here is the sovereignty of bertina, the rece called on all civilians to take up arms and unites in order to save that country. and he knowledge in his speech in many ways that currently burkina faso
12:17 am
and the military do not have control of large swath of the border areas. those areas are in the hands of arm groups linked to al qaeda and iso. so it was interesting his, his wording compare his speech compared to president hawk marquetto. a critics felt that he was at times a week were very aloof with the security situation. here we had a big band take to the stage, put out strong words to try to unite the country. and he also tried to reassure the international community ahead of this meeting from the west. african body echo was the west african heads of state meeting and re coasts. i mean, he said that he would respect the rule of law and human rights. and that the constitution is temporarily suspended and you will come back once the sovereign sovereignty of the country is regained. we have to remember what, what led to this coo and the personal relationship that we had with hoc knock, cowboy, the last time he met with the president, in fact, he was promoted by
12:18 am
a hot hot callaway to this, to this military commandment. he asked the president for russian fighters to come in and help in the fight against armed groups kept awake, dismissed that saying that that would be out of the question. that was the last time he had met cowboy before he arrested him. and now he's under house arrest somewhere here in the capital. since then, since this we've heard from those russian fighters in russian instructors that are active in molly and the central african republic. there is one of the russians for to said they're happy to help her kina faso the head of the wagner group that leads these russian fighters that are in the sal region, said was rejoiced by this group and said that they would be able to support burkina faso in this fight, so we might see that the country is new leadership move away from partnerships with france and move closer to russia. much to the ire of friends and the former
12:19 am
colonial power and the west. make no mistake. it seems that in this a hell we're seeing a step, a step up of russian involvement in the region. and it seems to be a place where we're seeing, at 40 years after the end of the cold war, seeing countries, western countries battling a battling it out with the russians to gain influence and cotton. the middle of this, of course, are the people are breaking up awesome more than 2000000 people this voice, this place to 1000 people killed. and that's why this war footing that we're hearing from then you leader of burkina faso lauren nichols hack. thank you very much. indeed, the 1st female president of honduras has been sworn in at a ceremony in the capital tegucigalpa tomorrow. castro takes over from to time president on orlando hernandez. 62 year old faces high expectations to turn around to dispute and who will need the newly elected congress. yes,
12:20 am
vice president coming harris and other world leaders. we're in, attendance on europe has more from to gucci and i storage moment for the country. historic opportunity that many see here who have been out on the street celebrating all morning integrity gaba. we see this is an opportunity for the country to turn a new page to be moving it in a new direction, especially after 12 years of single party rule 8 years under the leadership of the controversial president. when landlord, amanda is, who is administration has been marred by scandal political turmoil, the president, the outgoing president, own brother, a former president of the 100 congress serving a life sentence in the united states. people very much see this as a moment of hope for the country to maybe finally start to make good on promises. that pass administrations have failed to keep promises of reducing corruption, reducing the poverty rate, which stands at somewhere around 70 percent here in the country. and to finally,
12:21 am
perhaps improve economic conditions to a point where people here in the country will not want to migrate in mass toward the united states. now we mentioned that there were about 80 different international delegations present at this observation. just the number of high profile guests really does reflect the importance of this day. people like vice president, common le harris of the united states, the vice president of argentina, and of taiwan, the king of spain, philip the 6 as well as other world leaders. former of brazilian president the group, so there are a lot of political interests at play here the united states. c potentially us are a restraint thing of the relationship with hunter is commonly harrassing, potentially a new partner. and you might of castro for bilateral. 1 relationship that can truly address the root causes of migration out of honduras is present. joe biden has confirmed his nominate. the 1st black woman to the supreme court of justice stephen
12:22 am
bry announced he will step down this year. the 3 year old says he'll retire from america's highest court in the summer. assuming his successor has been appointed and confirmed. bry is one of 3 liberal justices in the conservative majority. court replacement will actually be named by february, choosing someone to sit in the supreme court. i believe is one of the most serious constitution responsible of your president, that our process is going to be rigorous. i will select the nominee worthy of justice, prayers, legacy excellence and distance. all i've been studying candidates, backgrounds and ridge. i've made no decision except one person i will nominate will be some of the extraordinary qualifications, character, experience and integrity. that personal be the 1st black woman ever nominated united states supreme court button 1st promised to know when to black women,
12:23 am
when campaigning for president on what has corresponded. kimberly how kit has more . there are a couple of reasons, major reasons for why the u. s. president is making good on this campaign promise. first of all, black women had a lot to do with the reason that joe biden is sitting in the oval office. they overwhelmingly supported him in the 2020 u. s. election. this is a way of saying thank you for that, but add to that the african american community that overwhelmingly voted for joe biden in the presidential election. the last one has not been too happy about the fact that they've not seen the voting rights legislation. they were promised get through, and so this is another nod to that in trying to keep some of those promise. but there is another reason that there is a bit of urgency on the part of the democrats and trying to see that this nomination happens before november. and that has a lot to do with the upcoming congressional elections. there is fear because of
12:24 am
some of the sort of plummeting poll numbers for joe biden right now, that they may not control congress after the congressional elections in november. and as a result, they want to see this done swiftly. your state department is aging it citizens to reconsider any travel plans they might have to the united arab emirates, rosalind jordan joined his life in washington dc. it's been just why the warning from the u. s. government well, this is a revision of a warning that already had been in existence for the united arab emirates. it's a travel, a level for don't travel. and that's because of the ongoing cove at pandemic. the of release was updated on thursday because of the recent of missile attacks launched off from who the territory in yemen, against targets in the u way e. this is a not unexpected. the u. s. issues are the sorts of wild travel warnings to its citizens for countries all around the world all the time because it feels that it
12:25 am
has a primordial duty to keep americans out of harm's way. in fact, just in the past week, the us updated it's travel warnings for both the ukraine and russia. not just because of the cobit outbreaks in those countries, but because of the ongoing attentioned and the possible look threat of war, of the possible invasion of russian troops inside ukraine and how it is effected, if in any way the u. s. u. a. even ations. well, it shouldn't have any real impact on the relationship between the 2 countries. earlier in the week after a both of these a who the attacks on to us on targets inside the u. e. the u. s. was a very quick to say that it was a continuing its strong defense relationship with the, the morality of military providing training and material to help them intercept any possible attacks from who the territory. but of course,
12:26 am
the bigger thing that the u. s. government is concerned about is the fact that the civil war in yemen has not been resolved. and it is trying to push for a quick resolution of that war while also are reminding its allies own notably the saudis, who have been leading the pushback as it were, to refrain from doing anything that would harm yamini civilians. person, jordan, thank you very much. doubt has been cast on where the poland new border will, will do much to stop people crossing from batteries. it started construction on a huge structure promised after a migrant crosses on the european union's eastern flank last year. but the people meant to be deterred by it, say they have little choice but to try anyway. journal reports from couldn't it say in eastern poland? ah, once complete in the summer poland wall will be a 186 kilometers long. almost half the length of the borderline with better risk. will it stop almost daily,
12:27 am
attempt by refugees and migrants to make the illegal crossing? probably not according to a kurdish immigration lawyer who spoke to al jazeera, especially if, as he is widely alleged, they continue to get help from bella. russian border guards. actually acting all is not, is not useful. they know that the guns can find another way and they may be, as you know, i told this guy, this helps them to cross the border. and of course they find another place rug has put us in touch with nisa occurred this refugee who with his family, including young children, is among hundreds living in a warehouse on the better side. i asked nisa if he was aware that poland is building a wall to keep people like him out there last year because what can we do? we have to wait. we can go back to our country when not part of the political
12:28 am
problem between bella roost and poland. we just want to cross the border and get to safety in the european union. it's a familiar story told by desperate people fleeing circumstances they can no longer tolerate. they may be among them purely economic migrants as well. but poland makes little distinction, putting hundreds into asylum detention camps and simply pushing others back. the crisis that flared last autumn is now much reduced. thousands were allegedly loose to the bachelor's border on the false promise of an easy crossing. it was both a cynical attempt by bella ruth, to destabilize parts of the e. u and also a political opportunity for the polish government. poland wall being built at vast expense and partly through forests that are a unesco protected world heritage site is a pretty extraordinary answer to what is now a fairly minimal problem. is it worth it to stop small numbers of people trying to
12:29 am
cross the border from bella? luce? well, it is. if you are a right wing populous government, this of the whole state run t. v. news bulletins report. the broadly popular claim that poland is doing a bit to protect the external borders of the e. u. from uncontrolled migration, public opposition to the government's policies does exist. we just would like to let people know that maybe not everyone in paula is against you. the people coming here from other parts of the world and we are here for them. but their voices barely heard. jonah hall al jazeera in eastern podium, u. k prime minister bars johnson is confirmed. he intends to release in full a highly anticipated report into parties at his residence during lockdown. top civil servant su gray has been investigating social gatherings at number 10, downing street,
