8:03 pm
circumstances of the resignation are an acceptable and how d.d. should return immediately. how did his own political party made a similar to mt they didn't just suggest the prime minister is being held against his will but expressed concern that lebanon's suddenly community could be marginalized even further. and french cars and disappoint. is controlling their government and are controlling their destiny on the other hand today they are concerned about. how do you. so this is why yesterday. to. how do you really should be a priority lebanon is a deeply divided country there is a pro saudi camp led by her which has long accused has been laws of imposing iran's agenda. here there is
8:04 pm
a pro iran camp led by hezbollah which has long resisted demands to disarm and to withdraw its troops fighting alongside the syrian government. but even has below has added its voice to demands for heavy to return reiterating the belief that the prime minister is being held against his will hezbollah secretary general has on the stroller was careful to avoid political escalation instead he accused saudi arabia of wanting to impose a new leadership in lebanon and start a war he called on the lebanese to avoid provocation and to stay away from the streets the political divide hasn't gone away but for now at least politicians are putting it aside there is a rare consensus for the need to unite at what many describe as dangerous times. beirut let's go to our state department correspondent patty kohei in hi there passe so we've heard this very strong statement from the u.s. secretary of state rex tillerson what is he been saying. hey there julie it
8:05 pm
really is and in terms of these diplomatic statements that came out from the state department this is really strongly worded it talked about the u.s. says the sovereignty and independence needs to be respected it specifically talks about the prime minister saying that the u.s. respects him and that the institutions inside lebanon need to remain their integrity needs to remain and their independence it goes further it says there is no role for foreign forces inside lebanon and that it warns that it should not be used as a proxy war by any foreign country obviously sending the message to saudi arabia that if there are plans to perhaps destabilize lebanon even further that the u.s. is going to frown on that but the big question remains the secretary of state often takes these lines which is more of an establishment traditional u.s. policy that likes to see stability in the middle east but we've seen his boss u.s. president doesn't always follow suit so we're going to have to wait and see what he
8:06 pm
tweets next but we have to remember in the past we have seen the president completely contradict his own secretary of state on issues that involve saudi arabia. is there any chance that this could be seen as a reprimand for saudi arabia. i think it is being read that way it's sending a message to saudi arabia keep in mind when you think about traditional u.s. policy what we've seen from past presidents what they prize most about their saudi arabian allies is the stability that it brings to the middle east we have seen that up ended in recent times not only with the purge of ministers and the rest of princes but the war in yemen and the blockade of qatar so we've seen a more aggressive saudi arabia now in many ways this would follow what you would but the trump administration would like to see which is iran put on its heels and of course more than happy to let saudi do the work and that now that is the trump administration the president and his closest pfizer's they've sent that message
8:07 pm
that they fully back the saudi arabian moves now will the establishment in washington secretary see rex tillerson said in the message with the statement no you stablish met will not put up with this now we just have to wait and see if the president agrees let's see at passy thanks very much. the un has called on a stallion papua new guinea to show restraint as a deadline to clear them out a silent refugee detention center approaches happen you get he has said it will forcibly remove an arrest anyone who's still there on saturday the power and water and turned off but hundreds of men remain barricaded inside a whole chapter jam records. protesters in melbourne and human rights activists want global leaders to pressure australia's government to move refugees in the menace island prison camp to the mainland activists are concerned over
