9:02 pm
and ami folk person announced to the military operation began with strikes and artillery fire. while you got them forces erected against the bases of the allied democratic forces in eastern congress since then, the congolese army spokes person has told us that ground troops, ugandan infantry, have crossed on foot into east and congo. now you've gotten the government blame the adf for 3 suicide bombings that took place in uganda capital 2 weeks ago. the adf originate from uganda and the 990 ugandan army pushed them into eastern congo, where ever since substantial business interest in cocoa, the another natural resources found in the areas that they control. but for the last 7 years, they've been responsible for a series of math because again, civilians in and around the town of penny and more recently, further to the north in a, to re proven the congolese army i brought in what it called
9:03 pm
a status siege 6 months ago, supposedly to stabilize north tv province and its hillary province. but there's been criticism that the state of seed hasn't worked. lead document showed that there was corruption. some of the military budget for the operation was being stolen until recently common congos parliamentarians have been calling for another kind of solution and uganda and military entering east in congo with what they hope will bring an end to this conflict. but certainly others are very skeptical about the following. you've gotten this invasion of congo in 996 and accusations of repeated meddling and funding rebel groups ever since then. a definitely let some people to worry that this will cause instability rather than bringing stability to 8th and or the eastern, bought a democratic republic of congo has seen a conflict which has lasted years. the allied democratic forces
9:04 pm
a d. s. is an affiliate of i saw in central africa that was formed in the 19 ninety's against the government of uganda. a long time president, you are the most of any, after several years, gand and forces drove out the armed boom, which then went into neighboring democratic republic of congo. the adf began its attacks against the congolese military in 2013. that is blamed for thousands of deaths in the region, or i'm in sanders is a former us ambassador to nigeria and the republic of congo and a former africa director of the u. s. national security council. she's joining us now from washington. d. c. focus to have you with us on al jazeera. thank you very much. indeed. i am our correspondent malcolm. there was just it the same that there are concerns that instead of actually stabilizing this situation, it could cause it to spread out. what do you think has to be done to avoid that happening? i think that not only the neighbors, but certainly the international community has to keep an eye on it. clearly in the package they just did it highlighted it, you know,
9:05 pm
in the late 1900 ninety's up until 2003 had a real conflict in and in eastern congo that included new gander ever want in truth . and so there is a worry that it could default back into that kind of major conflict. the difference this time however, is that you have an a, a. busy an agreement, so to speak, between the done and government and the, the current president of our seats not only provide or kill recover, but also come in on the ground level. the question will be whether or not they can change the activities of the garden to whether or not this to billions in the area will feel more secure or less secure with you guys in presence there, i think there is mixed views. you have certainly relatives from the earlier war in that part of the congo that are concerned about you've done to coming back in wondering whether or not they will leave again, or they will add to
9:06 pm
a wider credit of the conflicts. but overall i think that we have responsibility to neighbors, as well as international community, attention to the to be engage with both government on monitoring this. and in addition, back into the, out in the early, 2000 and the incredible through in, right, can you do that part of that. so the question will be to pay attention to not only the wider conflict, making sure that doesn't happen, but also to make sure that human rights violations don't happen by either side. one thing of course, as you say, for the international community to pay attention to it, it's another thing to want to take action in the event that the scenario is that you're talking about. the human rights violations are carried out all for example, if there is a risk that this spread further, is there any mileage? do you think that there would be some foreign troops eventually that would have to be on the ground in order to work? as peacekeeping troops, for example, in order to be able to,
9:07 pm
to contain and control not only the armed group, but of course the military of congo. and also uganda. i think that what i'm talking about when i say pay attention, it's all of those elements. i don't think right now there was an appetite for truth outside of the region or choose outside of a un framework to come in. i don't think revere yet, and i don't think that we want to jump to that as the as the next step. i think the next step is to really engage 1st on the diplomatic front, making sure that we are all talking to the leaders of both countries so that they understand the seriousness or the potential for this to get out of hand back in the early 2000 you know, it became one of the, i guess, africans, you know, greater civil wars where you had 5 countries or 5 countries with truth in congo at the same time. based on the 1st contact. we don't want to see that happen again
9:08 pm
because it took from 1998 to 2003. to get that back in the box. the key will be to engage, to have dialogue, but also keep an eye on whether or not the collective international community needs to go back to the us to see whether or not a greater peacekeeping force needs to come in. and to also pay attention to what the society and the local people that live in that region they suffer through this before you have concerned by a number of civilians in that area about these divulging again again into what we saw in late 999 up to 2003, given your extensive experience in the region, do you have a feeling that the military of congo and also uganda are capable of carrying out this particular tract. and that will essentially nip it in the bud. that will stop things or do you think that it is going to enter a period of attrition, essentially that this is just going to be the start of
9:09 pm
a series of actions like this? i think there are possibilities for both things. scenarios that you mentioned, the one that worries me most in the ones that i keep an eye on come, you know, coming out to the background is the influence of i feel and the, the role and the goals. and i still, in, in the, in this fight, we know that they are already linked to adf. they have been for some time, are we going to have elements from other other former wars like syria. a and i also coming into the fight and i think that the general for the entire continent, i don't think we're paying enough attention to the growth of, of i, phil and other islamic elements that are coming into the african continent. and this is just another example. so got to keep our eye not only on whether or not a lot of foreign to to coming out are connected to. i still are coming more into the area. we gotta make sure that the diplomatic engagement stays on track. we've
9:10 pm
got to make sure that the plan is also engaged in terms of whether or not it's something that we call that what we fire at peace keeping force to go in and then on the human life front. so, you know, when you're an analyst on a region that be going on a country that got to take in at least $5.00 to $6.00 possibilities that might be out there. hopefully the goal of starting this in the 1st place is, contain adf. and i still affiliate, but you all have to pay attention to whether or not that's what happened. and we have to listen to this 1000000000 and the reports coming out of the reason as to what's actually going on the ground. really appreciate your analysis of this robin sanders. thank you very much indeed for being with us and i'll just hear like you as always, the secretary of state says any russian aggression in ukraine will trigger the serious consequences to the blank and is attending a meeting of natal foreign ministers to discuss the build up of russian troops and ukraine's border bernard smith reports from moscow,
9:11 pm
nato foreign ministers say there'll be a high price to pay for any new military aggression against ukraine. and moscow was reminded the west has already used economic, financial and political sanctions. we have seen the brushes, playbook many times over, and part of their playbook is to attempt to create, ah, and manufacturer, a so called provocation, as justification for something that rushes planning to do all along. i. and so whether or what's been reported fits into that playbook. um i dont know ukrainian force is facing off against russian back separatists in the east of the country. there's been fighting on and off there since russia annex crimea from ukraine in 2014. now for the 2nd time this year, russian troops, a building up a long ukraine's border. moscow dismisses as inflammatory, any suggestions? it's preparing for an attack. and present, vladimir putin says he has his own red lines. if nato countries involve themselves
9:12 pm
further in ukraine, is that it is some kind of strike systems appear on the territory of ukraine. the flight time to moscow will be 7 to 10 minutes and 5 minutes in the case of a hypersonic weapon being deployed. creating such threats in ukraine poses red lines for us, but i hope it doesn't come to that. i hope that a sense of common sense responsibility for both our countries and the world community will prevail. russia says nato has deployed a significant amount of military hardware near its borders. in june, joe biden, and by the mer putin held their 1st summit, it came just a couple of months after a russian troop of build up along the border with ukraine. now here's another build up on the kremlin, says it's holding behind the scenes talks with the white house about another possible summit. the biden administration says it doesn't know of any plans,
9:13 pm
but it does say it's been holding talks with russian officials about you. cray, bernard smith, al jazeera moscow. no more had on the news are including ah, barbados begins a new chapter in its history. as the island nation breaks ties with the british monarchy and becomes a republic. at his sports, we've got some late drama on day one of the fee for arab cut that's coming up with jim with officials in the netherlands, who revealed that the gama kron covered $19.00 variant was present in europe for at least a week before flights from southern africa were banned. now thought is their say, they've detected the variant in 2 samples from november, the 19th. one week later, the w h o labeled it variant of concern, and countries around the world shut their borders to southern africa. the highly mutated viruses raised fears it's more contagious and less susceptible to vaccines
9:14 pm
has been confirmed in 20 countries as of tuesday. while germany's come closer to issuing a mandatory vaccine order, after incoming chancellor, all of shots said it was necessary to keep surging infections at bay. leaders are going to meet again on thursday to decide specific measures. dominic cane has more from berlin. the seriousness of the coven situation here in germany, his focus many mines, both medics and ministers on what they can do to try to dampen down this wave of cove. it that has been washing across the states of germany for many weeks now. in one sense, the politicians have decided to decide later many of the ministers who took part in the digital conference on tuesday afternoon here in germany, we're trying to get some form of decision that might help them in their individual states. but in the event, what's been decided is to wait for
9:15 pm
a special conference of prime ministers of states and the new government will be sworn in next week, federally will that will be where the decisions will be taken. we know what's going to be on the table. we know that the incoming chance and all of shots wants to see what's called in germany and inflate a mandatory vaccine requirement for everyone who has not had one will have to have what he wants, the new parliament to vote on that. he is also in favor of reducing the length of time that a person's vaccine states us actually will apply. so the moment in germany, it's a 12 month period. he wants the vaccine status of a person only to last 6 months, which is far shorter than what the e u has proposed recently of 9 months. where while the british premier says he wants to offer a booster shot to all adults and the u. k by the end of january because of concern about the spread of the omicron. very it. working together with the developed
9:16 pm
ministrations, we want to ramp up capacity across the whole united kingdom to the levels we achieved in the previous vaccination effort. we're going to be throwing everything at it in order to ensure that everyone eligible is offered that booster in, as i say, just over 2 months, they'll be temporary vaccination centers popping up like christmas trees. and we'll deploy at least 400 military personnel to assist the efforts of our and it chest alongside. of course, the fantastic jobs army of volunteers. well, it's bringing john hall, who's following developments far from london. jonah, and the premise they're talking about more machinations. but at least in that class, no talking about mosques or social distance and how are people responding to this? well, there's a lot for people to get used to a course for a public, particularly that's grown extremely used to living with almost no restrictions at all since july the 19th suddenly now mosque wearing his back in some indoor
9:17 pm
settings, p. c. r. testing for travelers, travel restrictions and sold, but essentially it's really a very stock turnaround for this government, this prime minister, suffering something of a popularity crisis at the moment. this prime minister, who has promised that nothing will get in the way of christmas this time. and i think the desperate hope in government will be that in the next couple of weeks, scientists will turn around and essentially give the green light at least to the most fit potential aspects of the on the crone variance. and in the meantime, there are these sort of like touch restrictions designed as the health sector. he said that press conference to sure up. defense is the prime minister there identifying the principle line of defense being the vaccine program, more particularly the booster program. he wants all adults to receive their booster shots by the end of january. he's talking about bringing the army in to facilitate that process. but essentially, i think all of that with fingers firmly crossed behind government ministers backs
9:18 pm
worried. busy that, you know, if the green light isn't given and if more stringent restrictions are required over the christmas period, say well, that could be potentially politically disastrous to the thanks very much. john hall in london dependence confirmed its 1st case available con, covered 19 variant officials have identified the patient as a diplomat from namibia. it comes just a day after appointments. so from your case, she does reinstate to the travel band on foreigners for testers in saddam opposed to the military, outside the presidential policy. in cartoon, the pro democracy movement has rejected last week's agreement with the military, which so abdullah, hum doc reinstated as prime minister the protesters. what changes to that deal? earlier security forces far tear guys to break up to close. sudanese authorities released the last of a group of political detainees and tuesday, but morgan has more from call to let you know that those are once again out on the
9:19 pm
street in the for the niece capital costume and other cities around the country. there protesting the deal that was fine between prime minister, him duke and the army on november 21st. now the military took over power on october 25th dissolving the transitional government that was in place for more than 2 years . at least working on put that as have been killed and more than 200 people have been entered. but that hasn't prevent that people from gathering once again, they're right now in front of the presidential palace, their destination to show the military that they are again, the takeover despite the violence that has been used in the previous protest. and despite the amount of here guys that it's been applied at, the protest is here. they say that they will continue to voice their demand for a civilian government because the state that is the only way to ensure that the downside of the democracy is complete. prime minister handle, who has been reinstated in the deal between him and the army, says that he understand the anger and frustration of the processes against the dealer. but they do have the right people protested with their freedom. but even
9:20 pm
though he expressed sentiment and that he understands the frustration of the processes that hasn't game sympathy among the protested here, they say that the, the prime minister, hum duke, who was once a symbol of civilian rule, a betrayer. because they did not on any negotiation or any compromise or any legitimacy given to the military. they say with that agreement, that is that prime minister, the lamb duke has done, given the military legitimacy compromise and negotiated with them something they said they are against and will continue to demand a complete transition to civil enroll until that is achieved. ah, this time next year katara will be hosting the fif of world cup and in preparation the gulf nation is staging. a major test tournament. the fee for arab cup determines kicked off. so let's go log to our supposed present. a gemini shed our special studio in doha. yes, the faith,

9:25 pm
that has made us peace efforts and aid efforts difficult. so that is one of the reasons that the other rationale behind the, by the ministrations lifting of this designation is the fact that it really is not a unified organization anymore in the eyes of the bite and white house. and so they felt that it was no longer appropriate to leave it in place. telephone go volunteer to has more from boerger top on the reactions in columbia. this is something that people, especially in conflict, there's in columbia, we're waiting for because a dies allow for a stronger implementation of a number of reforms that come with the p. c. that was signed back in 2016. i'll make you an example. usa, i d, the u. s. developing program until today was not allowed to work with the mobilize fighters in many corner store for cornerstone programs that have started since that
