cats are always going places to get. the scum of the world of al-jazeera. the best films from across on network of channels for the line is if i'm allowed to do it but i'm about to be fresh perspectives and new insights. to challenge and change the way we move the world. al-jazeera world but this time on i just. felt this is the opportunity to understand the very the frank way where there before it happens and we don't leave out. the u.s. and france warned against foreign interference in lebanon as the fallout continues
from prime minister saad hariri resignation. and i'm maryam namazie and want to know watching al-jazeera also coming up. deadline day for six hundred refugees living in squalid conditions in a closed down australian detention center. the u.n. says there's no sign of a deliveries resuming in yemen despite reports of saudi arabia reopening a border crossing. and pressure on britain's gregson negotiators as the u.k.'s given two weeks to make concessions on the e.u. financial sanctions. the u.s. and france have intervened in lebanon's political crisis calling for stability in the country and declaring support for the prime minister saad hariri howry resigned suddenly while on a visit to riyadh earlier this month blaming interference from iran and its
lebanese ally hezbollah on friday hezbollah's leader accused saudi arabia of detaining hariri and not allowing him to return home saying holder reports. citizens of saudi arabia and its gulf allies visiting or living in lebanon are leaving it's not the first time gulf countries tell their citizens it is not safe to say lebanon has long been entangled in the saudi power struggle across the region but the latest warning heightened tensions after the resignation of lebanon's prime minister saad howdy but alongside the tensions there are growing signs of lebanese unity in what many see as saudi interference in their country saturday his resignation was sudden raising concerns about the circumstances behind that decision there is also concern about how to use freedom of movement he may have been seen since he made the announcement in riyadh but the prime minister hasn't made it. anymore statements lebanon's president michel aoun believes how he is under house arrest he told
a saudi arabia the fear in beirut bihari that the circumstances of the resignation are an acceptable and how he should return immediately. how did his own political party made a similar to mad they didn't just suggest the prime minister is being held against his will but expressed concern that lebanon suddenly community could be marginalized even further. and french and disappoint. their government and. on the other hand they are concerned about. how. so this is why yesterday. 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 law of imposing iran's agenda here there is
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 had to return to the belief that the prime minister is being held against his will. and we call the lebanese take this as an offense and any offense to the lebanese prime minister as an offense to all the lebanese even if he is our political bursar of. hezbollah secretary general has sent us rather 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 well the u.s. is urging all policies to respect lebanese sovereignty the secretary of state rex tillerson is back inside her areas internationally does look on with increasing along a state department correspondent patty culhane reports from washington it's the one question swirling around the world capitals what is going on with lebanese prime minister saad hariri he resigned his post well in saudi arabia does he want to be there or is he being held against his will the french weighed in you know the me should i think you should ask him and we simply note that he resigned to travel to abu dhabi on the eve of president runs visit so we think he is free in his movements and it is up to him to make his choice at the u.s. state department thursday the answer was less clear we have seen him. in terms of the conditions of him being held or the conversations between saudi arabia and the prime minister hariri i would have to refer you to the government of saudi arabia
and also to mr hariri office for the conditions of him being held as you can depend . i'm not going to put that word behi i'm i'm not going to associate that word with that but where he is right now. she went on to say she couldn't even talk about where they met but her boss is sending a strong statement about what should come next secretary of state rex tillerson writing that the u.s. respects the prime minister and sees him as a strong partner he went on to warn there is no place in lebanon for foreign forces and the u.s. cautions against any party within or outside lebanon using lebanon as a venue for proxy conflicts an obvious message to saudi arabia but his boss u.s. president donald trump has been more willing in the past to give saudi arabia a green light to do what it wants it remains to be seen if that will apply to lebanon but at the united nations growing alarm after saudi ordered its citizens to leave that country this is
a matter of great concern to us and what we want is for peace to be preserved in lebanon. it is essential that no new conflict in the region it's good to have devastating consequences a critical time for a country wondering what's next for them and their leader political hane al jazeera washington. has a policy analyst at the arab center in washington d.c. and says there's little international appetite for now the conflict and at least. the authority of the us is big on iran true but it's not for us later the not much the on the ground you see in they resume we have no russian the us understanding to basically allow the regime to take a large part of our will come out in iraq you have more the wishes of the status quo that obama and started off the forty and by by having the lead this force
but the two rickets link is lebanon and yemen and this is where the saudi arabia is trying to push but the difference is as iran is not seeking from patient because they have the start score now the us to the one open a big conflict which basically distracts from from other special of the but i was worried about iraq and syria they want to have the article for impatient with iran and also you have israel not interested to jump begin to change the conversation from syria to. to israel from hezbollah side so the ground is right that even the body is politics that is somehow a unity that is refusing it's a busy should factor so there's no ground for that i see the u.s. and france are expressing or those regional facts. thank you. in the last few minutes a deadline to clear the man aside refugee detention center has passed papa new
guinea has said it will forcibly remove an arrest anyone who's still there a power and most have been turned off but hundreds of men remain barricaded inside my own hand has more. for almost two weeks that refused to budge around six hundred refugees and asylum seekers living in the now closed to stray in prison camp on menace island in papua new guinea without water power food or sanitation because of the dirtiness and. this video shows how conditions have deteriorated but the man insisted this is better than accommodation or north or in a nearby town they say it's unsafe and fear attacks from local residents and police calls to at least two in the power and water back on the campaign has been ignored or thorough she's there want them gone threatening in a written notice posted at the camp to use force to remove them if they don't leave

a chorus of criticism overstrain his response calling on the government to move the men to safety in a stray here and to end its policy of same doing asylum seekers to offshore prison camps we have reported on the very dire conditions in the centers it's now really high time to bring an end to this unconscionable human suffering what. the detainees at the camp admit they're fearful of what might come but say they have no choice but to stay put. for now. now dizzier at the united nations has told out as there are there's no sign of any aid going into yemen after reports that saudi arabia had reopened a border crossing earlier on friday riyadh ordered a total closure of yemeni air land and sea ports earlier this week the un has warned that yemen stocks of fuel and vaccines will run out in about a month if the ports stay shut hannah hawkster reports. it's difficult to
understand that this is what humans can do to each other and millions of people face famine and are in desperate need of urgent humanitarian assistance. now the u.s. has backed aid agencies in calling for more to be done to alleviate the situation we've seen tremendous few food shortages in yemen we've talked about how this is really a manmade situation there the announcement that the ports were being closed down or limited in terms of some of the supplies is an area that's of concern to us because the yemeni people are not the ones at fault for their situation we would like to see food aid medical equipment and all of that be able to brought be brought in to the ports saudi arabia has stepped up a land and sea blockade on yemen after a ballistic missile was towards the capital riyadh on saturday. before the blockade
more than twenty million people at that safe a two thirds of the population needed humanitarian assistance now nearly hoffer like completely on food aid to survive the country is experiencing a cholera epidemic which is expected to affect one million people by the end of the year aid agencies say they're struggling to work inside the country it takes from one town to another we have to almost go through one hundred checkpoints and this is a man made disaster and there is no humanitarian solution to this we're asking for parties to come together to find a solution desperate which is desperately needed for the people of yemen it's becoming increasingly difficult for people to get their hands on vital commodities with prices of petrol and cooking oil rising by as much as fifty percent in a week. and so far as closing down the ports and borders these are war crimes in the first degree the longer yemen's sit empty the longer the suffering will continue. as there. elsewhere syrian children eastern tara facing acute

welcome i.q. with al-jazeera a quick look at the stories making headlines now the u.s. and france have declared their support for the lebanese prime minister saad hariri he announced his resignation whilst on a visit to riyadh and the speculation he's being held in saudi arabia against his will a deadline to clear them out of sight and refugee detention center has just passed up by new guinea has said it will force a believe a move an arrest anyone who's still there six hundred refugees remain in the camp and the u.n. has told al-jazeera there's no sign of any way going into yemen after reports that saudi arabia had reopened a border crossing on your own friday. well in other stories we're following the head of the united nations says the violence against myanmar as range of muslims

state that has now forced six hundred thousand to flee to neighboring bangladesh trudeau's government is facing calls to strip the nobel laureate of her on a canadian citizenship. earlier on donald trump sent a strong message to apec leaders that the u.s. will not accept trade deals that require it to surrender its sovereignty but china's president xi jinping told the summit that economic globalization is a process that can't be reversed when he has more from don in vietnam. often the most memorable event at an apec summit is the leaders photo opportunity at the garland dinner but this year's traditional costume chosen by the host vietnam was fairly low key that was in contrast to the days earlier events that included a speech by u.s. president donald trump 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 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 minute objections by canada. deborah helms has been in. told in negotiations in the past and says if a deal isn't reached in vietnam the whole thing could be in jeopardy as we've just seen in the last few weeks with the change of government in new zealand new demands on the agreement the canadians have had a government change not quite so recently but that's part of what's driving the problems in t v p now every day that you wait is a day in which the whole thing could follow god bless the united states of america if it survives members quietly hope the united states will eventually rejoin but

they exist in the service of a mentality of fear that affects not only the parties in conflict but the entire human race. listen to this mentality has led to tension on the korean peninsula and worrying rhetoric between washington and pyongyang this is the first major international gathering since the un approved a treaty banning all nuclear weapons or excellence of the vice president over fifty countries signed the treaty in september but the nine nations with a nuclear arsenal and all nato members boycotted the talks in a debate nato deputy secretary general defended their position the treaty risks undermining years of steady progress under the nonproliferation treaty. importantly the ban treaty disregards the security conditions and nuclear challenges that we face most prominently today the emergence of nuclear weapons and long range missiles in north korea without the participation of nuclear nations in the
treaty some say disarmament might be a pipe dream but others say it's comparable to when chemical and biological weapons were banned that was a crucial first step in making those arsenals illegal in discussions like these are not the way of cranking up the pressure on those countries some speakers believe that it's up to the public to demand an end to nuclear weapons it's insane and everybody is saying insane but government are not listening. again with the technology we have with social network with every every ability we have right now we just have to tell government shape up or get out. what they're calling for is a new more equitable global security system perhaps utopian and unrealistic for some but the alternative is to rethink to imagine. what francis is heading south america in january but it seems you won't be getting a warm welcome from everyone protestors in chile have been burned out abbas and the

we think this is going to have a very big impact in low income communities according to the city's commissioner of culture for one and a half million dollars in spending in these areas is a good investment these kinds of activities are its activities are correlated with a much bigger impact in low income communities person cities that have rich cultural activities are. actually safer better school outcomes and they're healthier. it's a plan that allows neighborhoods to celebrate their unique cultures and that has these brooklyn dancing in the streets christian salumi al jazeera new york. critic at stories making headlines now the u.s.
