Hello, I'm Ros Atkins, this is Outside Source.

:00:10.:00:11.

Donald Trump Junior has defended his meeting

:00:12.:00:13.

with a Russian lawyer last year - who he believed had incriminating

:00:14.:00:19.

Again, this is before Russia mania, before they built it up in the

:00:20.:00:28.

press. For me, it was opposition research.

:00:29.:00:30.

President Erdogan of Turkey has denied claims that his country has

:00:31.:00:34.

TRANSLATION: Those people inside jail are not titled as journalists.

:00:35.:00:43.

Some of them corroborated with terror organisations.

:00:44.:00:48.

Our China Editor has been looking at the Chinese companies are pouring

:00:49.:00:51.

workers into new countries - leaving locals wondering

:00:52.:00:53.

The EU's chief Brexit negotiator has said Britain must

:00:54.:00:57.

recognise its financial obligations to the European Union.

:00:58.:00:59.

The Brexit story is getting complicated, if you've got any

:01:00.:01:02.

questions, tweet them to us at #BBC OS and we'll answer.

:01:03.:01:14.

All the other contacts are on screen.

:01:15.:01:33.

Here's my colleague Zeinab Badadwi, telling us...

:01:34.:01:36.

Wide ranging interview on @BBCHARDtalk, marking a year

:01:37.:01:41.

First, here's the President on whether journalists

:01:42.:01:45.

Opposition journalists write a lot of insulting articles about me even

:01:46.:01:53.

recently they did it during the march.

:01:54.:01:56.

Those insulting articles are still out there.

:01:57.:01:59.

Those people in jail are not journalists.

:02:00.:02:10.

Some of them collaborated with terror organisations.

:02:11.:02:13.

Some were jailed for possession of firearms.

:02:14.:02:17.

They have a journalist badge, but this is not

:02:18.:02:20.

the official press card - so with that badge they claim

:02:21.:02:22.

Groups like Reporters Without Borders refute that.

:02:23.:02:30.

They rank Turkey 155th in their press freedom index.

:02:31.:02:37.

They say, "Dozens of journalists have been

:02:38.:02:39.

imprisoned without trial, turning Turkey into the world's

:02:40.:02:44.

to.waves of trials, withdrawal of press cards,

:02:45.:02:56.

cancellation of passports, and seizure of assets".

:02:57.:03:01.

Press freedom is also one of a multitude of reasons why Turkey

:03:02.:03:04.

appears no closer to joining the EU than it was when talks

:03:05.:03:07.

If the EU bluntly says we will not be able to accept Turkey into the EU

:03:08.:03:14.

We will then initiate our plan B and see.

:03:15.:03:21.

Turkey is able to stand on it's own two feet.

:03:22.:03:30.

Our per capita income is more than $11,000 right now.

:03:31.:03:33.

Turkey's been a strong supporter as Qatar comes under severe pressure

:03:34.:03:49.

Turkey is never in favour of Muslims killing Muslims in this region.

:03:50.:04:04.

We don't want to see Muslims fighting with Muslims.

:04:05.:04:08.

We don't want to see those developments which are happening

:04:09.:04:15.

It's clear what's happening in Syria.

:04:16.:04:21.

Turkey is paying the price because of these issues.

:04:22.:04:27.

We don't want this so because of that we don't accept

:04:28.:04:31.

Next, here's what Zeinab made of the interview.

:04:32.:04:40.

What I took away from the interview, president of the Gannon is someone

:04:41.:04:48.

very controversial, divisive at home and abroad. Half the population

:04:49.:04:53.

enjoy them, almost revered him. Think the strong leadership is just

:04:54.:04:57.

what Turkey needs. The other half is absolutely opposed to him.

:04:58.:05:02.

Unprecedented marches against him by the opposition in the past week or

:05:03.:05:07.

so. Also Turkey is a country that international community cares deeply

:05:08.:05:12.

about. If he is such a pivotal role, operating in a tough neighbourhood.

:05:13.:05:15.

Second biggest standing army in Nato. What matters in Turkey matters

:05:16.:05:22.

to the international community. That is why it was really so important to

:05:23.:05:27.

try and gain insights into what the leader of Turkey thinks on so many

:05:28.:05:34.

issues. Looking forward to watching the home thing. You can see the

:05:35.:05:39.

interview this Friday. If you want to watch

:05:40.:05:42.

the full interview - We got a summary today of a British

:05:43.:05:46.

government review of Not the full thing though -

:05:47.:05:51.

that's been withheld Critics say this is because

:05:52.:05:57.

Saudi Arabia is named - and the UK sells Saudi Arabia a lot

:05:58.:06:01.

of military hardware. That will not satisfy critics,

:06:02.:06:18.

pressing for this report to be published for a long time. The

:06:19.:06:21.

government sitting on it for a long time. That is because the contents

:06:22.:06:26.

are believed by some, the government has my critics, to include quite

:06:27.:06:29.

critical remarks, about foreign governments accused of at least

:06:30.:06:35.

allowing the funding of extremist groups in the UK, by money he comes

:06:36.:06:39.

to the shores. Particularly the Gulf. That is why, people have been

:06:40.:06:45.

pushing for it. What we have today is a summary. Today, tells us a

:06:46.:06:50.

couple of things. In the review of this, essentially saying most

:06:51.:06:54.

extremist groups in the UK, most of the funding comes from anonymous

:06:55.:06:58.

donations from within the UK. However for a small group, they do

:06:59.:07:04.

rely on overseas funding, but a small group.

:07:05.:07:12.

James mentioned some of the people who aren't happy.

:07:13.:07:14.

@CarolineLucas Caroline Lucas, Green Party: "Govt refuse

:07:15.:07:16.

to publish review into funding of extremism + try to fob us off

:07:17.:07:19.

If she wants though, she can read it - MPs can read

:07:20.:07:25.

the document as long as they don't reveal what's in it.

:07:26.:07:27.

UK Home Secretary is promising action on financial transparency.

:07:28.:07:29.

Exposing a bit more of what these groups do. A lot of them call

:07:30.:07:42.

themselves charities, they are charities. Wide definition of what

:07:43.:07:47.

the charity is. Explain to the public, do you know this is what

:07:48.:07:51.

they are involved in? Get transparency of the financial

:07:52.:07:57.

services sector, which supports groups, allowing them to set up

:07:58.:07:58.

financial instruments to setup this. Crucially the interesting bit, the

:07:59.:08:03.

government says it will ensure charities are regulated. All

:08:04.:08:08.

charities are to declare overseas funding. Quite significant change.

:08:09.:08:13.

Andy Murray out, three-time Wimbledon winner Novak Djokovic out

:08:14.:08:39.

at the quarterfinals. Chuck in Stan Wawrinka and Rafa Nadal, it means

:08:40.:08:44.

the purveyor of Indian summers, Roger Federer, 35 years old, the

:08:45.:08:49.

highest ranked player in the draw. Tough outing for defending champion

:08:50.:08:54.

Andy Murray against Sam Querrey. He led by a set and a break of losing

:08:55.:08:59.

12 the last games. Struggling physically as the match wore on.

:09:00.:09:04.

Eventually going down in five sets, losing the fifth 6-1. His American

:09:05.:09:10.

opponent took his chance, hitting 70 winners. It appears that the hip

:09:11.:09:13.

injury which disrupted his build-up finally caught up with him. Sam

:09:14.:09:19.

Querrey will face Marin Cilic semifinal, the Croat speeding Giles

:09:20.:09:22.

Muller in five sets. Meanwhile, injury Wednesday. Novak Djokovic

:09:23.:09:28.

bowing out of Wimbledon. The second seed needed to win the title to

:09:29.:09:31.

return to the top of the world rankings. An elbow injury saw him

:09:32.:09:36.

pull out of the second set. In his quarterfinal against Tomas Berdych,

:09:37.:09:41.

lost the first set on down the second, called it a day. Far more

:09:42.:09:46.

straightforward for seven time champion Roger Federer. Ageing like

:09:47.:09:51.

fine wine. He cruised into the semifinals in straight sets, at the

:09:52.:09:56.

expense of Milos Raonic. Federer made short work of last year's

:09:57.:10:01.

runner-up with a trademark display. He won his 100th singles match.

:10:02.:10:20.

You'd to put money on Federer, getting his eighth title. He is the

:10:21.:10:23.

favourite. Find out on Friday whether he makes the final. You are

:10:24.:10:31.

selling it well. I will watch both the semifinals.

:10:32.:10:36.

The fight between Floyd Mayweather and Connor McGregor

:10:37.:10:38.

Somewhere between pantomine - and pantomine.

:10:39.:10:45.

They met face to face for the first time - in LA.

:10:46.:10:50.

It's the first stop in a four city, three country promotional

:10:51.:10:52.

tour for the fight - so you can expect to see

:10:53.:10:55.

11,000 fans turned out for this event.

:10:56.:11:02.

Some think the promotion of the fight might be more

:11:03.:11:05.

Here is what the pair said after the their first

:11:06.:11:09.

Conor McGregor has never had a professional boxing bout in his

:11:10.:11:16.

life. I'm pretty sure he anxious. I am

:11:17.:11:24.

just waiting. Day after day, going to the gym and working. Not as fast

:11:25.:11:29.

as I used to be. Not throwing, nations like use different. It will

:11:30.:11:33.

be intriguing matchup. Very interesting. His little legs, little

:11:34.:11:42.

corn, head, I'm going to knock out inside four rounds. Mark my words.

:11:43.:11:49.

That is the bit we could play you can he was swearing all the way

:11:50.:11:51.

through. This is Mithali Raj -

:11:52.:11:52.

not a household name like some Indian cricketers -

:11:53.:11:54.

but that could be changing. Today she became the all-time

:11:55.:11:57.

leading run scorer in women's one She did it by scoring 69 for India

:11:58.:11:59.

Virat Kohli TWEET @imVkohli A great moment for Indian Cricket -

:12:05.:12:10.

Champion Stuff! And this from the man

:12:11.:12:12.

who holds the record in the men's form of the game,

base in the horn of Africa. A gay man has won a landmark ruling

:12:38.:12:39.

at the Supreme Court which will give his husband the same

pension rights as a The ruling could have a dramatic

effect on the entitlement of thousands of people in same sex

marriages or civil partnerships. Victory after an 11-year

:12:59.:13:00.

legal battle. John Walker worked for the company

:13:01.:13:30.

Innospec the 23 years, paying Victory for basic

:13:31.:13:33.

fairness and decency... Civil partnerships became

:13:34.:13:35.

legal in December 2005. Shortly after, Mr Walker and his

:13:36.:13:37.

long-term partner entered into one. They are now married, but Innospec,

:13:38.:13:40.

relying on an exemption in the Equality Act,

:13:41.:13:42.

refused to take account of his pension contributions before

:13:43.:14:05.

that date, dramatically reducing the pension Mr Walker's

:14:06.:14:08.

husband would receive. The highest court in the land

:14:09.:14:09.

found that an anomaly. If Mr Walker married

:14:10.:14:12.

a woman, even after his retirement, indeed even now,

:14:13.:14:14.

she would be entitled to a pension. The court ruled that EU equality

:14:15.:14:16.

law, any British exemption. Mr Walker's husband will be entitled

:14:17.:14:19.

to a spouse's pension on Mr Walker's death,

:14:20.:14:21.

provided of course that It would be the same with anybody,

:14:22.:14:23.

whether it is a heterosexual couple or a same-sex couple -

:14:24.:14:27.

someone you love, that person, you want to make sure is looked

:14:28.:14:30.

after as long as they are alive. I'm older than him,

:14:31.:14:33.

therefore statistically, the chances are that

:14:34.:14:35.

I will die before him. I wanted to ensure

:14:36.:14:37.

he was looked after. The effect of today's

:14:38.:14:39.

ruling is massive. It doesn't just about John Walker -

:14:40.:14:40.

it affects everyone who is in a civil

:14:41.:14:43.

partnership or same-sex marriage and that is whether they are paying

:14:44.:14:45.

into an occupational pension scheme with a private employer

:14:46.:14:48.

or within the public sector. Supporters were thrilled,

:14:49.:14:50.

but the human rights group Liberty which supported John Walker sees

:14:51.:14:52.

a possible storm It is only EU law that

:14:53.:14:54.

allowed him to win today. So obviously what Mr Walker wants

:14:55.:14:58.

to know and what Liberty wants to know is what is going to happen

:14:59.:15:01.

to these rights when we leave The Government says it's

reviewing the ruling. John Walker is happy that equality

:15:05.:15:07.

at the heart of civil partnerships and same-sex marriage has finally

:15:08.:15:10.

caught up with pensions, and there President Trump's eldest son has

:15:11.:15:12.

said he didn't tell his father about a meeting last year

:15:13.:15:38.

with a Russian lawyer, who was apparently offering

:15:39.:15:40.

documents that would damage The second round of Brexit

:15:41.:15:42.

negotiations start next week. Plenty of diplomatic

:15:43.:15:49.

jostling in advance. This was the British Foreign

Secretary Boris Johnson - on any long-term financial

:15:51.:15:52.

obligations the UK will owe The sums I've seen, they propose to

:15:53.:16:13.

demand from the country seem to be extortionate. Go whistle is entirely

:16:14.:16:17.

appropriate expression was 'Go whistle', by the way,

:16:18.:16:20.

means to ask for something you don't Today, the EU's Brexit

:16:21.:16:23.

negotiator Michel Barnier how I am not hearing any whistling,

:16:24.:16:40.

just the clock ticking. He worked on that line, it's done.

:16:41.:16:43.

This 'exit bill' is one of the key sticking points.

:16:44.:16:45.

It could include the UK's share of EU commitments due before

:16:46.:16:48.

the Brexit deadline, as well as pension

:16:49.:16:49.

payments for EU staff - amongst other obligations.

:16:50.:16:55.

Michel Barnier also mentioned the rights of EU

:16:56.:17:08.

citizens' in the UK - we already know the EU is not

:17:09.:17:11.

satisfied with the UK's current offer on that issue.

:17:12.:17:23.

And he said the European Court of Justice had to be the "ultimate

:17:24.:17:26.

guarantor" of those citizens rights - the UK Government

:17:27.:17:28.

When you see this clip, you can see how he came to that conclusion. We

:17:29.:17:54.

have published nine new position papers so far. Under different

:17:55.:18:04.

issues. The new positions are clear. We now need to know the UK's

:18:05.:18:10.

position on each of the issues, in order to make progress. We need to

:18:11.:18:20.

know which points we agree, at which point we disagree. So we can

:18:21.:18:29.

negotiate. In earnest. A paper from the UK Government position outlining

:18:30.:18:32.

the position is set to be published on Thursday.

first overseas military base. to Djibouti to set up Beijing's

:18:37.:18:47.

MAP They left from Shan-jiang City in Guangdong province on Tuesday.

:18:48.:18:49.

The Chinese say the base will facilitate peacekeeping

:18:50.:18:52.

and humanitarian aid and - and for military co-operation.

:18:53.:18:55.

Djibouti is a tiny country at the horn of Africa,

:18:56.:18:57.

and shares borders with Eritrea, Ethiopia and Somalia.

:18:58.:19:08.

It's considered a favourable location, the US, Japan and France

:19:09.:19:11.

also have military bases there, because it sits near one

:19:12.:19:14.

of the world's busiest shipping routes on the Suez Canal.

:19:15.:19:17.

It's also seen as a stable country in an volatile region.

:19:18.:19:20.

The military is far from the limit of China's ambitions.

:19:21.:19:29.

Next let's go to Almaty in Kazakhstan.

:19:30.:19:31.

We've covered China's plans to create a new silk

:19:32.:19:33.

The BBC's China Editor Carrie Gracie is travelling along all 11,000km

:19:34.:19:38.

For two centuries, Central Asia was Russia's backyard.

:19:39.:19:57.

Kazakhstan got its independence when the Soviet Union collapsed.

:19:58.:20:06.

But Russian remained the language of business - until now.

:20:07.:20:08.

This is China's new Silk Road in action.

:20:09.:20:10.

The economy slowing back home, state construction companies

TRANSLATION: China's advanced technology is bringing convenience

:20:37.:20:38.

and more comfort and safety to travellers in Kazakhstan.

:20:39.:20:40.

If this project goes well, it will serve as a model for others.

:20:41.:20:43.

China says its plans are for the benefit of all.

:20:44.:20:45.

But most jobs here will go to Chinese workers, and the loan

:20:46.:20:48.

It's not just building across Central Asia,

:20:49.:20:51.

China is buying into banks and oil fields too.

:20:52.:20:53.

In one village, a kindergarten has become a hostel for Chinese workers.

:20:54.:20:58.

Ardak Kubasheva complains of pollution, and jobs

:20:59.:21:00.

TRANSLATION: The Chinese have done nothing.

:21:01.:21:32.

There's a huge oil industry here, but no jobs or facilities

:21:33.:21:34.

We want to live decently, so that we won't be

:21:35.:21:38.

Government intimidation makes many Kazakhs cautious on camera.

:21:39.:21:41.

But, privately, several accused Chinese companies

:21:42.:21:42.

China says its presence abroad is a win-win,

:21:43.:21:45.

a win for China and a win for the people in its path.

:21:46.:21:49.

They say their oil wealth is going elsewhere and that that

:21:50.:21:53.

"win-win" means China wins once, and then China wins again.

:21:54.:21:55.

Back at Almaty's Zenkov Cathedral, Dosym Satpaev says the nations

:21:56.:21:58.

of Central Asia are like billiard balls in a game between the big

:21:59.:22:01.

China, I believe it will be like some threat

:22:02.:22:20.

Because for China, Kazakhstan is not an equal partner.

:22:21.:22:24.

For China, Kazakhstan only is like one of the players,

:22:25.:22:26.

That game stretches far beyond these mountains.

:22:27.:22:36.

But already it's changing lives, shaping the destiny of young nations

:22:37.:22:39.

A trillion-tonne iceberg has broken away from Antarctica.

:22:40.:23:03.

MAP It's leaving the Larsen C iceshelf which is on the eastern

:23:04.:23:06.

Scientists have been monitoring the crack

:23:07.:23:08.

A Nasa satellite spotted the movement earlier.

:23:09.:23:29.

This is the satellite image that was captured.

:23:30.:23:31.

You can clearly see the ridge where the ice broke away.

:23:32.:23:34.

It's one of the biggest icebergs ever recorded,

:23:35.:23:36.

it weighs a trillion tonnes and is about 6000 square

:23:37.:23:39.

kilometres - almost four times the size of London,

:23:40.:23:41.

Year getting the idea where it is broken, seemed a crack in a

satellite images. Standing more in the water them below. The other way

:24:15.:24:15.

round. About 30 metres above the surface. Top three, four, five in

:24:16.:24:24.

the satellite era. Back in the 1950s, the US Navy spotted one they

:24:25.:24:30.

thought or something like 35,000 square kilometres. The size of

:24:31.:24:36.

Belgium. No satellites to confirm it. Other places have been warming

:24:37.:24:40.

melting quite rapidly. We don't think in this instance it is the

:24:41.:24:47.

case. Probably what the ice stars. This is what we're seeing.

Sam says I don't understand net neutrality. Add to this report on
