welcome to our view company the u.s. has joined the un in wading into lebanon's political crisis calling for stability after the shock resignation of prime minister saad hariri hariri announced he was stepping down while in riyadh last saturday blaming interference from iran and its lebanese ally hezbollah but hezbollah's leader says hariri quit the duress house and is accusing saudi arabia of detaining hariri and not letting him return home u.s. secretary of state rex tillerson has cautioned all sides to respect lebanon's integrity and independence warning regional powers against using it as a venue for proxy conflicts and the un secretary general is warning that a new conflict in the region could have devastating consequences all of this as citizens of saudi arabia kuwait and bahrain begin to leave lebanon after being
encouraged to do so by their respective governments are harder has more from beirut . 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 stay lebanon has long been entangled in the saudi iranian power struggle across the region but the latest warning heightened tensions after the resignation of lebanon's prime minister saad heavy but alongside the tensions there are growing signs of lebanese unity in what many see as saudi interference in their country so that it is resignation was sudden raising concerns about the circumstances behind the decision there is also concern about how to ease freedom of movement he may have been seen since he made the announcement in riyadh but the prime minister hasn't made any more statements lebanon's president michel aoun believes had he is under house arrest he told that saudi arabia charge at the fair in beirut will lead bihari. that the 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 sunni community could be marginalized even further. and french and disappoint. is controlling their government and controlling their destiny on the other hand. so this is why yesterday. how do you really should be a priority lebannon is a deeply divided country there is a pro saudi camp led by her which has long accused 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 hezbollah has added its voice to demands for how to return it to the belief that the prime minister is being held against his will when i know not. all the lebanese take this as an offense. to the lebanese prime minister as an offense to all the lebanese even if he is our political outbursts are a. hezbollah secretary general has been a struggle 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 as we said earlier the u.s.
is urging all parties to respect lebanon sovereignty this is why well leaders look on with increasing alarm state department correspondent particular events will 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 this simply note that he resigned that you travel to abu dhabi on the eve of president mike rounds 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 use of the conditions of him being held as he is he in detention well. i'm not going to put that word behi i'm i'm not going to
associate that word with it 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 your ups 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. well eleven pacific rim countries have reached agreement to move forward with a new free trade trans-pacific partnership plan without the us now they include canada mexico chile japan and vietnam the development came on the sidelines of the ongoing asia pacific economic cooperation summit in vietnam present donald trump took the u.s. out of the original twelve nation agreement soon after taking office in january the tepee talks don't include china which is also attending the summit wayne hay is following events for us from denying various members of the press corps awaiting for ministers to talk up the bit about what's been agreed and what hasn't but there does seem to be this movement on the p.p.
which is quite encouraging for those that wanted to see it move forward. absolutely sale this is a deal that as you mentioned the united states withdrew from way back when donald trump assumed the presidency and ever since then really i guess it's been dealt on again off again there's been several rounds of talks between the remaining eleven nations but the news became more and more positive as we got closer to this a pick summits summit so there was real hope that an agreement of some sort would be reached here in vietnam and that looked like it was going to happen on friday when the leaders were shared jewel to meet to sign off on this basic out framework but there was a major complication when the canadian prime minister justin trudeau failed to show up and it emerged that the canadians had some concerns over some elements of that deal going forward but since then we've had a meeting of the various trade ministers from those remaining eleven nations and
then they released a statement on saturday morning saying that they have agreed to the core elements of the deal but as a former canadian trade negotiator told me a short time ago this is probably far from the final deal and there will be many more negotiations to come. count of those in a fairly difficult position because in the midst of a very major now after negotiation and the implications of the p.p. on the nafta negotiation are an issue having said that. some other countries are trying to roll back some of the disciplines that were included in the t.t.p. . and they have called for progress of the night you'll find the word progressive being used in the language now for a progressive remit that includes environment includes gender equality that includes labor so those sorts of issues count of those also i understand i'm not
part of the negotiating process any longer of account was also looking for some. changes in the dispute settlement. provisions of the agreement and i think that there is a more general. view among he eleven that they may need to put in abeyance the intellectual property provisions which were largely driven by the united states when they were there. so that news that it appears the transpacific partnership involving the remaining eleven countries is going forward in principle probably not the news that the us president donald trump i wanted to hear given as we mentioned he was the one that pulled the u.s. out of the deal and he as evidenced again in his speech that he gave to a pig business and political leaders on friday is pulling in a very different direction highlighting again on friday in that speech that he wants bilateral deals for the united states and will no longer sign these large
multilateral deals clearly most of the other apec nations including with especially really the nations are pulling in a completely different direction and want to go forward with this small multilateral deal so what we're seeing at the moment is a meeting behind closed doors of the apec leaders there in a retreat and then as you mentioned we are also waiting for that media conference to start which we understand will include trade representatives from japan and the host vietnam and of course as we get more news we'll come back to you for an update wayne there in denying vietnam thank you well staying in the region be about as he doesn't suit chief faces pressure from world leaders that that apec summit in vietnam canada's prime minister justin trudeau spoke with sujit about the military crackdown in rocky state that has forced at least eight hundred thousand ringer to flee to neighboring bangladesh trudeau's government is facing calls to strip the nobel laureate of her ordinary canadian citizenship. still ahead here on al-jazeera
