2:02 pm
but first the lebanese president michel aoun has told saudi arabia's envoy in lebanon that prime minister saad hariri must return to the country now president has reported express concern over the circumstances of mr kerry's resignation calling them on acceptable now this is the latest in escalating tension between saudi arabia and iran that's fueling a political crisis in lebanon the french president meanwhile emmanuel that mccrone has made a surprise visit to riyadh he held talks with the crown prince mohammed bin sound man president confirmed that he has had informal contact with mr hariri who is also in the saudi capital. now mr harris political party the future movement is demanding the prime minister return to beirut immediately and it says it actually hasn't heard from him since saturday that you'll remember is when he
2:03 pm
resigned in a broadcast from riyadh saying that he feared for his life well it's been six days since that resignation and there are now growing fears that mr hariri is actually being held in riyadh against his will but the french foreign minister. says he doesn't believe mr hariri is movement is being restricted you know the soon to do your job would have you should ask arrear e about whether his life's in danger we simply observe that he's resigned he went of adultery the day president micron was passing through we think he's free in his movements and it's important he makes his own choices our only worry is the stability of lebanon and that a political solution can be put in place quickly more now from our correspondent in beirut to send a hoarder. babylon is holding contacts with the arab and western diplomats seeking information about the fate of the resigned prime ministers had a heavy duty lebanon's president even meeting the fare of the saudi embassy in
2:04 pm
beirut the saudi diplomat did not make any statement but sources close to the president say that the president is concerned he is worried about the how did he believe how d.d. is under house arrest in in saudi arabia and it's not just the president the speaker of parliament as well they have both said that his resignation the prime minister's resignation will not be accepted until he returns to lebanon and it's not just how do these little opponents who are expressing concern his own political party have suggested and imply that they believe how d.d. in one way or another is being held against his will demanding his immediate return so how did his disappearance if you like or his face his fate has brought the lebanese factions together this is a very deeply divided country a pro saudi camp of pro iran camp but all of them are talking about the need for unity and the need for had he to return because he is the prime minister who is really representative of the sunni community because there's a sectarian balance of power they share
2:05 pm
a balance of power along sectarian lines in lebanon and a strong man like him out of office many in his community will feel that iran would further strengthen its grip are its hold on lebanon and amidst all this gulf countries yet again issuing a travel ban telling its citizens to leave the country of course statements like these are going to cause a further tensions people have heard them before it's not the first time they've made such statements but people fear that saudi arabia is bent on escalating this crisis further because they believe they were pushing lebanon to the center stage of the saudi iranian rivalry which is playing out across the region. talks to revive the free trade deal between pacific rim nations have been stormed off to the canadian prime minister failed to to. to a meeting traders at the top of agenda for leaders gathered in vietnam for the a pick trade summit with donald trump is free in what appeared to be a sharp criticism of china's policies when hey has more from done in vietnam.
2:06 pm
it was inevitable that donald trump's arrival would dominate the apec summit after getting off the plane from a state visit to beijing the united states president went to a meeting of political and business leaders there he went straight on the offensive seeming to attack china's trade policies without specifically mentioning china they engaged in product dumping subsidized goods currency manipulation and predatory industrial powers they ignored the rules to gain advantage over those who followed the rules causing enormous distortions incomers and threatening the foundations of international trade itself trump has vowed to correct some of the trade deficits the united states has built up particularly in asia but the america first policy that he campaigned on ahead of last year's election is seen as protectionist it runs counter to the multilateral globalist
2:07 pm
approach of most other apec nations including china. president xi jinping spoke soon after trump and painted china as a champion of globalization. openness brings progress while seclusion leaves one behind we the ocean pacific economies know this too well from our own development experience we should put in place a regional cooperation framework that ensures consultation among equals with participation and shared benefits that's what it's trying to do with the sixteen nation trade bloc known as the regional comprehensive economic partnership which may be finalized by the end of the year under the previous administration the united states was also hoping to gain some influence in this region through the trans-pacific partnership trade deal but donald trump pulled out of it the remaining eleven members of the pact which doesn't include china are hoping to come to some sort of agreement during a pic members quietly hope the united states will eventually rejoin but under
2:08 pm
president trump that's unlikely. all right let's go live now to wayne hay in get the very latest so reports coming in that the canadians have not turned up to this t p p meeting and that means end of the deal. yes well perhaps not quite the end of the deal just yet but it has been a bit of a roller coaster ride over the last few days and all indications were leading up to the leaders arriving for the summit that things were on track because the trade and foreign ministers from the various countries over the last few days had been behind closed doors trying to hammer out some sort of initial deal a basic framework really to continue going forward for a final t p p involving those eleven nations now those talks we heard wrapped up on thursday night in the indications were positive as i say positive enough even for japan's trade minister to come out and say we're done we have an agreement the
2:09 pm
canadians very quickly responded to that on thursday night friday morning and said hang on just a minute and then within the last few hours we were supposed to have that leaders meeting the apec leaders meeting to sign off on what their respective trade and foreign ministers had been discussing and as you mentioned that is when the canadian prime minister justin trudeau didn't turn up now it appears that the canadians have some last minute concerns we don't know exactly what the details of those concerns are but they head in the last few days flagged some issues that they have surrounding things like labor rights the environment and also gender equality it is still not too late though there is some hope among those with knowledge of these negotiations that a deal could be signed off by the leaders on saturday and what those the asian could take years up to ten years which is what it's taking to really get to the
2:10 pm
stage we're at now so that wasn't the case driven forward by the likes of japan and . new zealand in particular there was a real desire to keep this trade deal alive and it emerged that in fact they could do that obviously with some tweaks to the original deal that involved the united states but not a complete renegotiation so again those with knowledge of this deal are saying yes this is a big sit back of canada ultimately pulls out of this deal but given the example of the united states withdrawing that perhaps it still could survive going forward but they are viewing this potentially if a deal is not signed off on saturday here and a pact then that perhaps this is quite a significant setback to what is left of the t p p when hey live you again our first thank you. human rights activists are demanding australia immediately resolve the worsening conditions at the madness island prison camp they say the camps
