9:08 pm
the secretary of state said that he was confident that the the 2 countries could work through their differences and discuss things and certainly the turkish foreign minister indicated on arriving here in new york that they were looking to improve bilateral relationships with the united states. and clearly, the best way to do that as far as the u. s. is concerned is by supporting this expansion of nato. so that will be discussed here, behind closed doors and, and we'll see how that plays out. but clearly, this is the top of the agenda for both of these diplomats to work through their differences on nato expansion. the indication from sources here is that turkey is not a pose to nato expansion per se. if these security concerns are in fact addressed . ok, thank you. kristen sending me lie for us to un headquarters. the u. s. has reopened its embassy, ukrainian,

9:10 pm
those remaining fighters. now they have said that they will not surrender an answer and is not a word that ukraine has used even for those that have been taken to. russian held her for doing the words being used by the ukrainians is that they have completed their mission. and this is a very politically charged issue, the, those fight to the scene with defending mary pola, making the heroic stand. and many of them went on line window at the as of still front saying that they felt like they were let down by the politicians in care of. so it's important for ukraine to at least try to see that they're doing their best to try to get those remaining fights as evacuated as well. those that have been taken to rush and separate russian vac separatist areas. well, the ukraine, the saying that there is a exchange program a for me. and what we've heard from the ukrainians is that they will be some sort of exchange for seriously wounded ukrainians for in exchange for seriously wounded russians when that will take place and how that will take place as of yet is not

9:13 pm
actually though a sooty is a former president of the international criminal court. he says, it's right that the case is hurting ukraine and not in the hague. international law does recognize that authority of it national states to do it. or whether or not the a particular national em authority has the credibility to do justice. according to the accepted standards in international law is a different question. and that is a matter that i am am not in a position now. do you know? second, guessed the ability of ukraine to, to do a justice or indeed russia itself, because russia would also have the right to try at all it's on soldiers, but also ukrainian soldiers that i suspected of committing war crime. so, but site, how that right and international lot to, to,

9:18 pm
well, this debate that we were expecting to see play out over the multilateral relationship, that the united states has with different regions of the western hemisphere debate that we were expecting to see play out of the some of, of the americas in jude is happening well ahead. of schedule, with mexico positioning itself right smack of the middle of this conversation. of course, this all begins with mexico, mexican president, and this manuel lopez over the lord of stating that he would boycott the summit of the americas in june to take place in los angeles. if the united states did not invite representatives from cuba from venezuela and from the can, i will others, other leaders from the region have since sort of signed up and supported that statement by the mexican president. we've heard from the president of got the mile now they have to geometry. now. this is something that could, that we could potentially in theory see a resolution to today. there was a delegation from the united states that was scheduled to visit mexico to speak
9:19 pm
with the president, specifically on that matter. we've heard from president lopez over saying that that in person visit has been scheduled, has been cancelled. and instead, it's going to be taking place over the phone. now, if mexico is able to convince the united states to invite the president of venezuela of nick at iowa of cuba, it also raises legal questions specifically because the united states has for many years now been accusing leaders like than a lot bigger of nicaragua. and nicholas by order of venezuela, of human rights violations, and of other crimes. the u. s. is also easing sanctions imposed on cuba by the trump administration. cuba is facing its worst economic crisis in 30 years. the last time life was this hard was when subsidies from the former soviet union ended . tens of thousands of cubans are fleeing the island in search of a better life or latin america editor. the cinnamon reports from her 55 year old, allow the lena soon that is returning home empty handed. after spending hours in

9:23 pm
a state socialist enterprises, which in our view with the fundamental actors of our economy in coming off when i'm and then men to her. it's clear that maintaining centralized control is still the priority. despite please for greater freedom for the fledgling private sector. those who hoped that the way out of this crisis would be to follow the example of vietnam or china would just have to keep waiting in line. lucy and human al jazeera havana. or staying with this sir, where joined labarte, helen. yeah. for you. she's a senior lecture at the university of glasgow where she specializes in cuban and latin american department. thanks for being with us here today on al jazeera is present biden's announcement enough to think when you consider the overall effects of sanctions on cuba over the years. well, i think the question is enough to do was to alleviate some of the hardships that cubans have been experiencing as a result of the double whammy of the sanction,
9:24 pm
the sort of maximum pressure strategy of the trauma administration. which paul, 243 new measures actions and co and sanctions on a, on top of a blockade that was already 6 decades long. and of course, the coven pandemic, which saw them closing the borders, losing tourism revenue. so it, you know, it barely scratches the surface in terms of its impact on lessening some of those hardships. and one of the really key measures is, but just before leaving office trauma, put huber back onto the list of state sponsors of terrorism, which is ludicrous. nobody in the world believes that, that justified and what this means is that to me, late, all the banks in the world have to put you on a high risk category and you know, basically risk of us, they refuse to carry out transactions related to cuba. so of course this impacts
9:25 pm
cubans, trade kuma, the small island nation, heavily dependent on imports and exports. new talks about the biotech 2nd. so i mean, cuba has, it's the only country and not in america. the power been to produce its own code, 19 back things. but you know, even the question of exporting both is impacted by this decision by trump, which biting hasn't reversed so much despite his campaign promises? because by then had stated that he would revert back to the obama wrapped right small arrow, he was the vice president. so very minimal measures, i think very sort of tactical from, by then your previous report was talking about the, the tensions around the summit of the americas and the president of mexico and others have said, you know, that they $1.00 to $10.00 ines, all the countries including cuba are present and invited and they're pushing back against them. you know, us using sanctions as a, as
9:26 pm
a form of wool fat. and it's fresh in general. so i'm going to ask you this so, so sorry to interrupt. let me ask you, how is all this affected the population then for example, the closing of the u. s. embassy in havana? oh, it's been devastating for cuban families. so you know, what happened is on a sphere is claim of what was originally called sonic attacks. and mike were able to talk then simply the harvest road, which has reached recent me, you know, to see, i have come out with a report saying there's actually no basis for this occupation on this furious claim . they closed. but do you remember the effectively and the conflict, which meant but the cubans and remember the whole historical and geographical reason, something like wanting free cubans have family in the united states. and they have, you know, a lot of cultural and academic exchange. they, they couldn't get the freebie banner. so they had to travel over be the main port for getting these is still gayana that implies paying for, you know,
9:27 pm
making application. but for going for interviews they have to pay for transfer to both countries. stay that pay for the accommodation and essentially will that most about travel. so you know, this is been also the family reunification program has been shut down full something like 5 years. so the impact on a human level has been devastating, and that's also one of the depressions that's growing in the united states, the growing cuban american community, which is rejecting the policy of hostility. and that's i know, whatever they think of the cuban government. they want the ability to visit their families to send money to their families, and they are angry. so what, steph, i'm the suffering on necessarily have from economic shortage is the kind of cues but your previous report because of the sanction. so there is a growing pressure by from latin america, the heads of state who are complaining,
9:28 pm
but also an internal movement that is becoming increasingly vociferous and saying have to. and we have to allow cubans to be able to travel to cuba to send money to cuba. and one of the bite and measures announce to re the limits on the amounts of reminiscences that can be sent above a $1000.00 annually. but you know, this is something that is not explained bare enough to set the queue than financial institutions that receive the remittances and distribute them in cuba have being placed on this trump list of restricted entities. so, you know, a lot of they seem to be in less than, you know, back channel, told them more details will be coming out. it seems to be quite superficial. ok, we'll have to leave it there, haven't yet, from the university. thank you very much. and if your insights today, thank was still a heads up on al jazeera people, a t for alice petulance to lanka, was the government of wards. it's running out of supplies and in sport,
9:29 pm
to find out what made this i spoke with . bright will allow sense don't blown through the still plenty of dust in the air and the still that seasonal wind, the shamal that blows down the gulf out of iraq. it's quite a halt. one. so attempt is asked in the low fourties anywhere from q 8, that was a little bit cooler in mercy. you a because you got that wind coming off the open water. and the dust load is a little bit less, but it's showing itself in land and eastern side, maybe parts of cut out as well. the general picture is a dry one and a fairly breezy the still quite a breeze running through iraq. no problem though with dust in the air, but that might change. we have got showers at 1st in turkey,
9:30 pm
but they're moving eastwards towards nolan, iran. and then the picture then is largely sunshine, but they could been in coming risk to baghdad, as the winds pick up. quick look at the forecast, hear them saturday and sunday into the forty's. but, but i guess monday attempt drop accompanied by that when would suggest and i have looked at how much does that could be in? yeah, that, you know, a sandstorm risk coming up, right, well, still to come heading. sas, are we getting any, any rain in kenya? not much in uganda, around like the tour a few thunderstorms show up, but this time that you would like to see with this incoming moist breeze. something rather more than that, sapping up ah ah, i was raised in france. these are my grandparents. these are my parents, and this is mean fighting both isis and
9:31 pm
the 1st of a 2 part epic tale of a remarkable family. the father, the son, and that he has part one on al jazeera with lou. ah ah
9:32 pm
ah, you watching out a reminder now the top stores in finland and sweden have handed in their formal applications to join native and membership bids were spurred by security concerns over rushes warn ukraine. but turkey is blocking the lines from even beginning the process. president joe biden has said the us will work with finland in sweden, or the membership is being considered. u. s. secretary of state antony lincoln is meeting his turkish counterpart at the un to discuss twenty's objections. today we have food and sweden submit their applications, and this of course is a process and we will walk through that process as allies and his partners. we have a lot on our common agenda, including of course, a rush is ongoing regression against ukraine, united states, turkey,
9:33 pm
all of our allies have been ha resolute in support of you, frame to gear as being supporting the open door policy or nato, even before this war but with regard to this possible candidate already candidate countries, you know, we have also legitimate security concerns that they have been supporting terrorist organizations. and there are also export restrictions on defense products. so we already express our concerns and on the ground. russia is continuing, it's offensive in the southern ukraine, or the hamid is in the calliah of which was bombed earlier on wednesday. this is actually a strike that happened at around 520 this morning. now this is what you see behind me is a cluster of one story,
9:34 pm
residential houses that this is really the epi center of that strike. and everything you can see around me is completely destroyed. they are injured, but no one died in this tribe, which is actually difficult to believe. if you just look at the a, the magnitude of the destruction here, you can see everything is completely charged and burned and leave. if i was good can show you inside there is really absolutely nothing left. we spoke to the owner of this house. she is not injured, but certainly this is really a lifetime of memories gone in ashes. now the issue here in mac alive is that this happens on a daily basis. there are those strikes that miss any kind of target. the is an air defense system in place. but more and more this city is being targeted. we spoke to military officials in to,
9:35 pm
for over the past 2 days and they say that they're being shelled either from the south. the have southern region which is now occupied by the roches all firm, or what they believed to be miss out said from the black sea. and also people are now more worried certainly with the changes under ground in more you put the is, i believe that now that russia is more or less in control of more you pull it has this land puri door from russia all the way to decry mia it allows people, it allows russia to reinforce, is present in the have southern region and may be pushed stewards here. because if you recall, in the 1st stages of this war, the russians had actually arrived very close to this. as town of 400000 people is on, the black sea is, is known for its shipyards at the soviet time. and had they wanted to push and russia stated and wanted to take all this land all the way to the blackboard. see
9:36 pm
the c port of odessa and maybe also link all the way to moldova. so there is a certain worry that at some point there could be a push even though we've been yesterday to the outskirts to the towns and villages around nikolai, do ukrainians have managed to push the russians back? now the issue is, is the other wash is going to have a counter offensive now that the situation in my, you post seems to be more or less under their control. prisons, a cost of living crisis is worsening in the poorest are feeling the pinch, the most inflation rows my 9 percent last month, reaching a 40 year high. that's led to soaring electricity bills, millions of household solar energy costs increase last month by 54 percent. the citizens advice charity says low income families, especially struggling to put food on the table chief on sundays, an economist researching inequality at king's college,

9:38 pm
a 1000 pound check that is taxed to every single household, the cost that entire package radius. those security payments in live with price is a $1000.00 pound check and bringing about the universal credit uplift together cost 10 percent of what we spent on upon debit responds. this country got through a pandemic, we shut down the economy. we could app. so you get to is what's the lifetime cost of living crisis as well for them? cuz government is telling motor, it's not to kill it. fuel stations because they've run dry. government is struggling to pay for new supplies and other essential goods. and the newly appointed prime ministers warning the most difficult one so yet to come. and l fernandez reports from columbus. angry, frustrated, and helpless. she lanterns have had to queue up for most essentials in recent weeks to day they were told there's no more. petra left you there to diary love i reported i came at 8 o'clock this morning, but when i got close, i set the patch was gone. i don't even have enough to go home to live with arbour
