10:01 pm
a joyful celebration of the departed i believe to come back to visit that. i'm still get a welcome to the program turkey and russia have launched joint to ground patrols in northeastern syria the operations part of a deal struck between the 2 countries to force kurdish fighters out of the territory and their turkish border military vehicles of the children attend commom to deep zone along the border marking a major power shift in syria a month after u.s. president trump withdrew his country's forces from the region. so let's get the latest from d.w. our correspondent dorian jones in istanbul welcome dorian what is the purpose of these patrols. well these patrols are a key part of why did sign up this agreement with moscow there's
10:02 pm
a great deal of skepticism from the to the syrian kurdish militias have withdrawn which moscow claims they have and they see that these patrols will verify the withdrawal of these kurdish forces 1st patrol is believed of last around 4 hours cover the around a 120 kilometers of syrian territory but we have heard now in the last 24 hours from a key syrian kurdish commander saying that they are going to totally withdraw back to 30 kilometers even though they noted that they weren't part of this agreement that was hatched out between uncle and moscow but there is a resignation of the resignation that if they don't withdraw it would lead to a further military operation by turkey leading to further refugees adding to the already $200000.00 mated to being displaced so there is these patrols are seen as key to verifying that withdrawal but it is believed that withdrawal is taking place or has taken place now these patrols are operates on syrian territory so the serving syrian government is watching closely so before we continue dorian let's

hear from syrian president bashar assad speaking on syrian state television. this agreement is a positive step it does not achieve everything in the sense that he will not pressure the turks to leave immediately however it limits the damage and paves the way for the liberation of this region in the future or the immediate future as we. back to door in jones in istanbul dorian was that indorsement from president assad . well sadly a far more nuanced approach from our side if you recall a week ago our sobs tore into the turkish president right typer the one calling me a 3rd rate actor and adding to the already very bad animal on the most a t between the 2 leaders but this was far more diplomatic recognizing that the turkish presence is at least for the short term but underline that they want the turks to leave but also said that they don't want to see turkey as an enemy and
10:04 pm
this does indicate that moscow is behind this more diplomatic approach moscow is trying to bring on korea and damascus together and we also heard a nuanced approach towards the syrian kurds while underlining that he wants to take complete control of the syrian kurdish area he did acknowledge that the realities on the ground as he called and said this is a long term goal so that does indicate that they will be some possible negotiations between damascus and the syrian kurds and it is believed that moscow is working hard to facilitate that there was a meeting today between president u.n. secretary general antonio what did they talk about. well i think the key part of this meeting was one selling his plan to settle between one and 2000000 syrian refugees currently in turkey back into this save so that one calls which turkish forces are currently controlling in syria now this is an extremely controversial proposal because there's been a lot of critics saying that this is turkey trying to change the demographic
10:05 pm
a composition of the area with removing kurds and replacing them with predominantly syrian arabs that are mainly in turkey now refuse allegation but that is a widely held concern in the international community in particularly europe and earth one needs money he needs around $25000000000.02 pay for the resettlement now he will get support probably from his close allies the energy rich countries of azerbaijan and qatar but the key countries are europe and they will one realizes he will need international legitimacy for that project and that is why he's looking to united nations if the u.n. do sign off on this it will make his task of getting funding much more easier and the u.n. do seem to be sympathetic there is an awareness that turkey is facing the presence of 3 and a half 1000000 in refugees in turkey a destabilizing factor not only for turkey but for the rest of the region because heard one has warned he doesn't get funding he's ready to open his borders to europe and trigger possibly another refugee crisis dorian jones in istanbul thank
