3:11 am
appearance has dominated a meeting on economic cooperation in the. he's declared the u.s. won't accept trade deals which affect its sovereignty meanwhile china's president xi jinping has said that the process of economic globalization cannot be reversed when haye has more from denying in vietnam. often the most memorable event at an apec summit is the leaders photo opportunity at the garland dinner of 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
3:12 am
the rules causing enormous distortions in commerce 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 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 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 elms has been involved 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 a 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. 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 under president trump that's unlikely wayne hey al-jazeera vietnam still ahead on
3:14 am
al-jazeera we remain ready and willing to engage as often and as quickly as the european union gives the u.k. a deadline to make concessions on drugs that the whole process could be stopped. from the neon lights of asia. to the city that never sleeps. hello we have yet another tropical spinner in the south china sea formed of the philippines where it of course caused a lot of rain and flash flooding is down over open season it looks a little follow the flow of the wind towards the coast of vietnam of that's not a guarantee anyone any course take it through to sunday it will increase the onshore breeze china's southern china including hong kong potential drop in response to the sun disappearing the cloud increasing it will probably stay dry
3:15 am
will some absolute guarantee there is rain internally in china for the most part is now dry now given what's happening at hay you think it wouldn't be quite so wet further south but through my eyes your interior now into a wet season we've still got the the potential of fairly heavy rain in southern and central thailand but to be honest the focus should be further south sumatra maybe singapore certainly borneo and then to java we seen heavy rain here recently a few western side of java and that is likely to carry on. the monsoon rain in india now is just in the northeast monsoon which means it's those places exposed the northeast and of course trying to and if anything that clouds expanding and running backs having had flooding in chennai in the last couple of weeks it could be we got the same thing again. the weather sponsored by cattle and he's. doing is being an on its way to measure this month.
3:16 am
and it's not just i think that all things i mean most nothing's out of the state at the moment we are in a state of universally bad but stunted something that was growing back i would rather take the risks of. the risks of. digital dissidents at this time on al-jazeera. you're watching al-jazeera a reminder of our top stories this hour the u.s. secretary of state's warning all sides to respect lebanon's integrity and independence and says he strongly backed its prime minister said hardy announced he was stepping down part in the saudi capital on saturday claiming interference from
3:17 am
iran and its lebanese are like hezbollah. that are reports that authorities in papua new guinea have started to remove makeshift shelters at the monist island detention center the un has called on a story on papa new guinea to use restraint mr lee had been using the center to hold asylum seekers but it was closed ten days ago because the underwater have been turned off but hundreds of men remain barricaded inside. johns appearances dominated a meeting on economic cooperation in the asia pacific region at the summit in vietnam he delivered a strong message declaring the u.s. won't accept trade deals forcing the surrender of its sovereignty. ok let's go back to our top story the police. crisis in lebanon. is director of the institute for gulf affairs and he's joining us from washington d.c. thank you very much indeed for your time let me ask you first about the tone of the statement from the u.s.
3:18 am
secretary of state rex tillerson what did you make of that. i believe this statement of tillerson is extremely careful and diplomatic it does not give any warning against saudi and the rest of action visit to lebanon it did not address the fate of saddle so it is a really. very. substantial statement because it does not make any policy demands it does not as saudi arabia to refrain from taking any action against the lebanese people and their country we've heard that statement we've heard a statement a further statement from has a ball as well what do you think is going to be one of the likely outcomes in lebanon of this. it's really hard to say when the news that we have been able to get is that. going to way simply use the maximum effort or the maximum to
3:19 am
measure against against lebanon. indicating a military strike but this could be also something is not going to happen immediately. there are talks and almost certainty that lebanese expatriates in saudi arabia will be expelled not all of them maybe but. many of them in addition to having economic sanctions against against lebanon in the same spirit in the same way that they did against so you have very similar scenarios here in terms of the economic steps that the saudis and their allies might take against lebanon as we were talking about before there are deep divisions in lebanon between the pro saudi side hirees party and also obviously which is supported by iran but surely if any action is taken against lebanon as a whole it's going to affect both sides that if there is action it's not going to
3:20 am
be able to isolate either hezbollah or opposing side. it is true that the military actions against lebanon you cannot be limited to hizbullah it's very hard it's impossible. not to me and they can amik sanction also it's going to affect everyone it was interesting that today and i think lebanese people in this in these conditions kind of unite even the party have. issued a statement regarding the fate of sadler who we all know from day one that he is against his will and he's been held against his will and that no matter what the saudis are saying everybody in the world knows this and that unfortunately the world the united nation the americans in there even the french president who was in the area yesterday did not and i brought about it it's very concerning in fact you
3:21 am
say obviously that everybody in the world knows that he made this statement and resigned under some sort of jurist but obviously that is an assumption we should make that clear we have not yet to receive any concrete proof of that but given that and if given the nature of the conversation that we're having and that there is an intense intention here to try to deepen the divisions within lebanon looking at the gulf on a wider scale what do you think the potential outcome could be there. i think this is going to be very bad for everyone because this measure and the aggressive merger while we have the war in yemen and the situation with with qatar the blockade of qatar and we have instability in the region adding fuel to fire does not help really and i think it. is best advised to try to calm down these fronts and focus on the internal issues that he's facing in saudi arabia would be best for
3:22 am
everyone really there is no benefit maybe even sell man and his effort to become king has been told by the americans and the israelis if you attack hezbollah we will support you and it that could be the measures against lebanon it could be basically a gift for israel for israel to have the support of my. institute for gulf affairs based in washington d.c. thank you very much indeed he was chief in bragg's negotiators giving the u.k. a two week ultimatum to make concessions on a divorce agreement if talks are to proceed to the next round michel barnier says it's vital for the u.k. to increase its offer on an exit bill which some you officials say could be as much as seventy billion dollars shop reports from london time does appear to be running out for the british negotiators as the e.u.
3:23 am
representative fielding this question at the end of the second day of talks in brussels. to confirm for me that you will need. clarification's or concessions whichever you prefer from the u.k. within two weeks in order to move on to the second phase in december. posture week my response says michel barnier is yes in december either leaders in brussels will decide whether sufficient progress has been made the two sides are to move on to discuss important future trade deals we remain ready and willing to engage as often and as quickly as needed to secure this outcome over the weeks remaining ahead of the december european council. the united kingdom will continue to engage and negotiate constructive as we have done since the start but to the prime minister's exasperate the former british ambassador to the e.u. left open the possibility of leaving breck's it altogether it's not inconceivable he said we can change our minds at any time while we're in where. well the divorce

a mentality of fear that affects not only the parties in conflict but the entire human race. listens to this mentality has led to tension on the korean peninsula and it's 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
3:30 am
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 and 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 and again with that the chronology 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.
