hello i'm maryam namazie and london you're watching out there also coming up syria's army in iraq a militia team up to drive i still from the last major town they held in syria how yemenis a coping a saudi arabia's new blockade of the country drives prices up even further. and probably independence castle and storm stations and block roads demanding the release of a jail separatist leaders. exactly one year after his surprise election victory u.s. president donald trump has traveled to china for the latest stop on his tour of asia north korea and trade between the two countries are likely to top the agenda during what could be a difficult day of talks but his first day so i receive a warm welcome to beijing despite his heavy. criticism of the country and its trade
practices while on the campaign trail trump stepped out of air force one on to a red carpeted staircase in contrast to last year's visit by braca bomber who was forced to exit his plane from a lower door on the five star treatment continued with president xi jinping personally as courting them on a tour of the forbidden city in esco world heritage site which was declared off limits to tourists for the day the first couple were also treated to chinese opera and acrobatics display or trump has been tweeting about the visit describing the day is unforgettable and as he began his beijing visit u.s. and chinese firms trade deals worth nine billion dollars china correspondent adrian brown has more. exactly a year to the day that he was voted into office president trump arrived in china the country very savaged throughout the presidential campaign when he called china a currency manipulator and said that china was raping the u.s. economy all that though was forgotten on wednesday afternoon as president xi
jinping and his wife a score to the trumps around the forbidden city one of the most popular tourist attractions in china a chance perhaps for president xi to remind donald trump the china was once the center of culture and civilization president xi very much wants china to be center stage in global affairs now top of the agenda of course is going to be north korea and the feeling that the united states believes china could be doing more to rein in its ally china will be pointing out that actually it's done a lot in the past few months to tighten the financial news around. early next year the north korean firms operating in china would have to cease business north korean workers would have to leave the country and of course china has been enforcing u.n. sanctions against north korea trump wants to ensure that there's no backsliding by the chinese and of course there's the issue of the trade deficit the fact that
china exports far more to the united states that the united states sends the other way also trump wants u.s. companies to have more access to the china market particularly tech companies like facebook and twitter who are still locked out of china it's very important that these two men get along because the decisions they make will ultimately affect all of us well dollar terms presidential victory came after an unconventional and divisive campaign he pledged to unite the country but after ten months in office trump has yet to sign any major legislation and his popularity is falling alan fischer looks back at the twelve months sense election night. it was a night to surprise the country and his own campaign this was a victory donald trump despite all these claims never truly expected ours was not a campaign but rather an incredible and great movement most
people when you think about all that has happened and all of the news and the politics it's hard to believe in some ways it's all happened with in one year for weeks he prepared himself and supporters for defeat if we don't win i will consider this the single greatest waste of time energy wow get pummeled by wins in old industrial states in the midwest he was set for the white house his victory is something he's return to again and again we won florida we won south carolina we won north carolina we won pennsylvania. we won and won. one the most divisive election in modern american political history he then talked about uniting the country but since then we've seen a flurry of tweets on a number of topics on the divisions are as wrong on his obvious as the ever where donald trump like he says it connects him with his supporters bypassing the media which he believes is dead set against him you obviously hear
a lot of congressional republicans for example saying they wish trumpet tweet last for but they think that his use of twitter really hurts particularly their cause on capitol hill causing constant distractions from their legislative agenda judge gorsuch don't encompass a few legislative successes he swept away regulations he's confirmed the supreme court justice and that's really about it the word that comes to mind is chaotic i do think there is a side of this president that is much more interested in top of mind reactions and his own gut instincts rather than policy planning and strategic. efforts he continues to see to believe he is loved and adored throughout the country that may be true but according to polls and ever decreasing number of people i love this country. thank you. the high point of support was one year ago

according to syrian media as well as his beloved media sources syrian forces have surrounded the border town of become on the last remaining stronghold by isis fighters according to sources on the ground this is going to be a tough fight because isis fighters have been coming to this place from all sides not just the iraqi side of the border but from syrian town just far away as in there is or. is in the daters or province which is also being fought by s.d.f. forces these are the forces of a kurdish predominantly who are backed by the united states forces on the eastern bank of the euphrates river the town of one with a group amal is on the west and beyond and it is now being surrounded by syrian forces some reports say that they have started to enter the city but they expect that isis fighters are going to put up stiff resistance in this area it is worth noting that would not mean the end of ice and isis still has a number of villages and other surrounding areas in that there are problems and
across the border in the problems in iraq that it still controls but it would mean that the last stronghold in terms of urban settings small town and cities eisen would have lost all of them when it moved as a bill come out. saudi arabia's closure of all yemen's as land and sea ports is driving up the already inflated prices of vital commodities and stopping the delivery of much needed humanitarian supplies as aid agencies warn of a catastrophic situation lama john june reports now on how residents in the capital . in yemen's capital lines to buy petrol grow longer as fuel prices rise higher having jumped more than sixty percent in recent days the result of monday's announcement from saudi arabia that it would block all yemeni air and land routes as well as sea ports in response to a missile attack from across the border earlier this week residents of sanaa already accustomed to
a humanitarian crisis. their country that seems to grow more dire every day are angry i get even if this is a humanitarian crime they are exterminating the yemeni people and no muslim should be doing that these are unjust operations but it's not unexpected for those who kill children to close imports. the price of cooking oil has also spiked this temporary interruption of supplies in yemen is coming on top of an already catastrophic humanitarian situation we shouldn't forget this the population is already reconned the population already. lacking cope and lacking basic essential services ranging from food medicines medical services water and sanitation everything there is also growing worry about how the blockade will impact efforts to combat yemen's cholera epidemic with more than nine hundred thousand suspected cholera cases and over two thousand deaths since the outbreak
began in april the world health organization is calling on saudi arabia to allow for the flow of medical aid into the country. back in sanaa even before this latest crisis it was difficult to obtain vital commodities the sense of outrage is deepening the. closure of the land sea in airports and yemen is considered a huge injustice towards yemenis hardships mount for a population as weary of war as they are depleted of hope. well the un security council is holding a closed session on the humanitarian situation in yemen on this about this week announcement diplomatic editor james baker that united nations force and james existing restrictions on imports were already putting yemenis under enormous pressure what does this strike strengthening blockade now mean and how much concern is there about it at the u.n. . there's deep concern the u.n.
of describe the situation as catastrophic this is the worst humanitarian situation in the world since saudi arabia launched its complete blockade this is the first meeting of the un security council meeting behind that door it's a closed meeting but we do know what's going on there being briefed by who is the humanitarian chief. on the latest situation it's worth telling you that there is one news agency report out that says that the saudi authorities are going to allow aid port to reopen i tell you that's just one report from one news agency and we've been in touch by text with some of the diplomats are in that close meeting of a say that mr local certainly hasn't confirmed that in the briefing to the u.n. security council and it's worth telling you to aid in port is something that's entirely cooked controlled by the saudi led coalition so it's not at all clear what
they hope to achieve by stopping aid coming in there in the first place because they could have inspected anything that came through that port you know and yet the u.n. and aid groups like dr orders have not been have not been able to get their aid their flights into the country for the past few days what can the u.n. do about it. well i think we're not going to see any action coming out of this meeting there's no good it not we think going to be any formal statement by the u.n. security council no formal action no solution we will at the end of the meeting here from mr local humanitarian chief reporters will get to ask him questions about the gravity of the situation and whether the saudis are showing any inclination to lift the blockade we'll also hear we think from the italian ambassador who's the current president this month of the u.n.
