The First Minister has accused ministers in the UK government,
of being naive about Britain's future relationship
with the European Union.
Carwyn Jones told the Sunday Politics Wales programme,
the UK needs to "re-learn the art of diplomacy", in order to secure
favourable trade deals post-Brexit.
Here's our Political Correspondent, Arwyn Jones.
When they met on the stairs of the Senedd in July,
the newly appointed Prime Minister was meeting the First Minister
who is the longest serving leader of any part of the UK.
They will need to work closely over how exactly the UK
leaves the European Union.
But speaking to the Sunday Politics Wales programme about his hopes
on Brexit over the coming year, Carwyn Jones said he was worried
about what he calls the naivete of some new UK Government ministers.
There are some realists, but there are some who still say,
oh, Europe will basically fall at our feet.
They're not going to do that.
You have to be realistic and understand this is a discussion
between, not just two parties, but more than 30 different parties
when you take into account the different parliaments
in the EU as well.
The UK has to relearn the art of diplomacy rather
than shouting at foreigners, which is what the impression you get
from some of the Tory politicians.
A spokeswoman for the UK Government said it was determined to get
the best possible deal for the UK as we leave the EU,
and that it is approaching the negotiations in a spirit
of goodwill whilst working closely with the Welsh government.
The First Minister also said he will travel to Norway
in the New Year to learn about their immigration system,
where people can stay there for six months to find work.
Carwyn Jones favours a system of only allowing people to come
here if there is a job waiting for them.
Ukip wants a model where points are earned before visas are approved.
I think that it has to be controlled and we have to know who is coming
into the country and how many people are coming in and we have
to look at our small country and we have to,
you know, obviously we have to take a responsibility as well
with people coming in.
Also today, Welsh Secretary Alun Cairns said Brexit could benefit
deprived communities that have previously missed out on EU aid.
Speaking on Sunday Supplement programme, the Vale of Glamorgan
MP said leaving the EU was an opportunity to reshape how

A doctor from Bangor says she's raised enough money to build
a children's hospital on the outskirts of Aleppo.
Dr Saleyha Ahsan, who works at Ysbyty Gwynedd, is currently
travelling with the supplies to Syria, and spoke
to us from Germany.
The medical supplies have been put together by two doctors,
one of them a BBC presenter and A registrar from Ysbyty
Gwynedd, in Bangor.
The hospital is going to be built in an area
within the north of Aleppo.
It's going to serve a population of 66,000 children and it's
estimated that it will see, treat and look after
5000 children a month.
The money came from crowdfunding.
More than ?170,000 raised across Britain in two weeks.
But Doctor Ahsan praised in particular colleagues in Bangor
for their generosity.
One of my colleagues, one of my senior nursing staff,
gave me a bunch of money in cash and said, "Here, instead
of Christmas, we would like to give you the money."
Which was so incredible.
Meanwhile in Cardiff today Syrians from the Syrian Welsh Society held
a vigil in the city centre.
Syrian and Welsh people are standing here in solidarity to say,
stop the massacres in Syria, stop the war, give some
hope to civilians.
