The First Minister has accused ministers in the UK government,

:00:15.:00:20.

of being naive about Britain's future relationship

:00:21.:00:21.

Carwyn Jones told the Sunday Politics Wales programme,

:00:22.:00:25.

the UK needs to "re-learn the art of diplomacy", rather

:00:26.:00:29.

than "shouting at foreigners", in order to secure favourable

:00:30.:00:32.

Here's our Political Correspondent, Arwyn Jones.

:00:33.:00:35.

When they met on the stairs of the Senedd in July,

:00:36.:00:38.

the newly appointed Prime Minister was meeting the First Minister

:00:39.:00:42.

who is the longest serving leader of any part of the UK.

:00:43.:00:44.

They will need to work closely over how exactly the UK

:00:45.:00:47.

But speaking to the Sunday Politics Wales programme about his hopes

:00:48.:00:52.

on Brexit over the coming year, Carwyn Jones has said he was worried

:00:53.:00:59.

about what he calls the naivete of some new UK Government ministers.

:01:00.:01:02.

There are some realists, but there are some who still say,

:01:03.:01:04.

oh, Europe will basically fall at our feet.

:01:05.:01:06.

We have to be realistic and understand this is a discussion

:01:07.:01:16.

between, not just two parties, but more than 30 different parties

:01:17.:01:19.

when you take into account the different parliament

:01:20.:01:21.

The UK has to relearn the art of diplomacy rather

:01:22.:01:24.

than shouting at foreigners, which is what the impression you get

:01:25.:01:27.

A spokeswoman for the UK Government said it was determined to get

:01:28.:01:32.

the best possible deal for the UK as we leave the EU,

:01:33.:01:34.

and that it is approaching the negotiations in a spirit

:01:35.:01:37.

of goodwill whilst working closely with the Welsh government.

:01:38.:01:39.

The First Minister also said he will travel to Norway

:01:40.:01:41.

in the New Year to learn about their immigration system,

:01:42.:01:44.

where people can stay there for six months to find work.

:01:45.:01:47.

Carwyn Jones favours a system of only allowing people to come

:01:48.:01:50.

here if there is a job waiting for them.

:01:51.:01:54.

Ukip wants a model where points are earned before visas are approved.

:01:55.:01:58.

I think that it has to be controlled and we have to know who is coming

:01:59.:02:03.

into the country and how many people are coming in and we have

:02:04.:02:06.

to look at our small country and we have to,

:02:07.:02:13.

obviously we have to take a responsibility as well

:02:14.:02:15.

Also today, Welsh Secretary Alun Cairns said Brexit could benefit

:02:16.:02:22.

deprived communities that have previously mist out on EU aid.

:02:23.:02:26.

Speaking on Sunday Supplement programme, the Vale of Glamorgan

:02:27.:02:30.

MP said leaving the EU was an opportunity to reshape how

:02:31.:02:32.

Parents at a school in Haverfordwest have been warned about a stranger

:02:33.:02:36.

befriending children on social media, and asking them

:02:37.:02:39.

Sir Thomas Picton School says it's been informed of a number of recent

:02:40.:02:46.

incidents and has advised parents to inform the police

:02:47.:02:49.

Dyfed-Powys Police says it's aware of the allegations.

:02:50.:02:54.

A man has been charged with murdering Paul Groom -

:02:55.:02:56.

The 48 year old died earlier this month, after being found

:02:57.:03:02.

:03:18.:03:19.

of staff, with what's believed to be hammer-type object,

:03:20.:03:21.

A doctor from Bangor says she's raised enough money to build

:03:22.:03:26.

a children's hospital on the outskirts of Aleppo,

:03:27.:03:36.

which will be able to treat 5,000 patients a month.

:03:37.:03:39.

Dr Saleyha Ahsan, who works at Ysbyty Gwynedd, is currently

:03:40.:03:41.

travelling with the supplies to Syria, and spoke

:03:42.:03:43.

to us from Germany, as Caroline Evans reports.

:03:44.:03:45.

The medical supplies have been put together by two doctors,

:03:46.:03:49.

one of them a BBC presenter and A registrar from Bangor.

:03:50.:04:11.

The hospital is going to be built in an area

:04:12.:04:14.

It's going to serve a population of 66,000 children and it's

:04:15.:04:18.

estimated that it will see, treat and look after

:04:19.:04:20.

More than ?170,000 raised across Britain in two weeks.

:04:21.:04:24.

But Doctor Ahsan praised in particular colleagues in Bangor

:04:25.:04:26.

We've even had staff and colleagues contributing financially.

:04:27.:04:30.

One of my colleagues, one of my senior nursing staff,

:04:31.:04:32.

gave me a bunch of money in cash and said, "Instead of Christmas,

:04:33.:04:35.

we would like to give you the money."

:04:36.:04:37.

Meanwhile in Cardiff today Syrians from the Syrian Welsh Society held

We have more than 100,000 people in Aleppo living

:04:42.:04:48.

in the middle of nowhere now, no schools, no medicine,

:04:49.:04:50.

So Syrian and Welsh people are standing here in solidarity

:04:51.:05:01.

to say, stop the massacres in Syria, stop the war, give some

:05:02.:05:04.

Doctor Ahsan will be handing over her equipment to doctors

at the Syrian border and plans to be back on shift on Christmas Eve.
