7:01 pm
that i'm dealing with all this is the al jazeera live from london also coming up new pictures emerged showing the squalid conditions amana silent where refugees and i living without fresh water food a power. we are not going to let the united states speak taking advantage of any more tough talk from u.s. president donald trump to the apec leaders meeting in vietnam plus. only ten minutes away by boat from jakarta and these villages here are drowning because of the effect of global warming i'm stuck fast and reporting from because in west java . welcome to the program good to have your company the u.s. and france have intervened in lebanon as political crisis calling for stability in the country. saying they backed prime minister saad hariri and we announced he was
7:02 pm
stepping down while and we had earlier this month claiming and so few wins from iran and its lebanese ally hezbollah there are fears seize being held in the society capital against his will but his office denies them that's going to add to our state department correspondent particle hayden hi there patty so we have the strong statement now from rick's hyllus and what has he been saying it really is a very strongly worded statement that just was released by the state department secretary of state rex tillerson putting out this paper statement basically saying that the u.s. respects the sovereignty and the independence of lebanon its government its political institutions went on to say that parties within and outside need to respect the independence and the integrity of both the government and the armed forces and then it went on a little bit further to say that love and on should not be used as a proxy war between other countries obviously trying to send a message to saudi arabia that whatever its next moves are the state department
7:03 pm
will fight against it obviously when saudi arabia ordered all of their people out of lebanon it raised a lot of alarm bells here in washington so it is definitely the secretary of state sending a message to the saudi government now the big question always is does the president agree and patty is this statement going to be seen as kind of a reprimand if you like for saudi arabia. i think that's really the only way that you can read it now here's the big question second donald trump president donald trump put out a tweet saying that he basically backed the crown prince mohammed bin solomon in his moves to arrest all of those princes and four and former ministers so he knows what he's doing so the big question was is that basically a car blash green light to do whatever they wanted to do next obviously the trump administration the president particularly has signaled that he wants to see saudi arabia take
7:04 pm
a more aggressive stance against iran now the big question is now that the secretary of state has reiterated what seen as more of an establishment a war typical response from the u.s. government is the president going to back him in this we've seen in the past when saudi arabia took steps exact for example against qatar with the blockade the president came out was all for it only to have the secretary of state say wait a minute we're not ok with this stop it the president then basically threw him under the bus and then there was apparently a big row with in the white house and since then we've seen president donald trump take a much more measured tone so are we going to see a repeat of that well the president should be tweeting any time so we'll see. him there live from washington d.c. patty thanks. well the leader of hezbollah hassan nasrallah is accusing riyadh of holding lebanon's prime minister against his will and forcing him to resign his position he also said saudi leaders who are ging israel to attack lebanon and then can thailand and certainly the the resignation was a sight
7:05 pm
a decision the prime minister saad hariri was dictated and obliged and the resignation was not his well nor desire nor decision i think all the lebanese politicians journalists agree with this conclusion that the announcement was done and saudi arabia why was the man not allowed to go back to lebanon ten once this resignation from lebanon this is another question mark even the written text always a lebanese we know the literature between ourselves and we know the words that hariri used to declare this text was not a lebanese this text was written by citee and the literature is saadi is in a has more now from beirut. sadil how did he is our political opponent but he is also our prime minister those are the words of the secretary general of hezbollah hassan nasrallah he gave a very conciliatory speech he avoided political escalation in fact he didn't touch upon the political differences between the rival camps in lebanon instead he called
7:06 pm
for unity he said that to the lebanese should be aware that there are attempts by saudi arabia to ignite the internal strife and that the lebanese should stay away from the streets he's not the only one actually warning of the possible consequences as a result of the latest political crisis all of lebanese leaders from across the political spectrum have been calling for the need to be mature and the need not to be dragged into some sort of a conflict there's also a lot of concern about the whereabouts of the prime minister saddle how d.d. who resigned and it was a sudden resignation last saturday there are concerns about his well being hezbollah adding its voice believing that saudi arabia is holding the the resigned prime minister against his will the president has been holding contacts with arab and western western diplomats in lebanon to find out more information and subtle how do these old political party the future movement suggesting and implying that saddam had he does not have the freedom of movement but at the same time his
7:07 pm
political party saying that he must return to the country to maintain the internal balance and this is really key because levanon system is a sectarian the power sharing system and the office of the prime minister is held by a son a muslim and saddle he is seen as the leader of the sunni community and many in the senate community today will tell you you know what has happened really hurts us at marginal marginalized us even further if what they're trying to do is to confront hezbollah and to confront it's its influence and iran's influence in lebanon what has happened is that the sunny community is being marginalized even further so dangerous times in lebanon it looks like it's going to be a prolonged political crisis and there isn't much information really on if and when he will be able to return to lebanon. the un has called honestly and papa new guinea to show restraint as

7:12 pm
first policy then he campaigned on ahead of last year's election is seen as protectionist it runs counter to the multilateral globalist 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. 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 the trans-pacific partnership trade deal is supposed to achieve it doesn't include china or the united states after donald trump withdrew the remaining eleven members are hoping to come to some sort of agreement during a pic but a planned leaders' meeting to sign off on a provisional agreement didn't happen when she joined on friday because of last
