7:00 pm
at this time. the president said that there would be a complete audit a hundred percent audit that audit hasn't happened getting to the heart of the matter so are you saying that the future of the. store. on talk to. at this time. lebanon's president urges saudi arabia to explain why saad hariri has not returned
7:01 pm
to beirut following his surprise resignation a week ago. hello i'm maryam namazie in london you're watching al-jazeera also coming up trans-pacific partnership lives on after eleven countries agree a core deal without the united states. meet on the sidelines of a summit of asian pacific leaders and agree a way forward in syria also. with a view on a couple an independence from an enclave. from. where we begin in lebanon where it's been seven days since the shock resignation of prime minister saad hariri which he announced on a surprise trip to riyadh and have been he's president calling on saudi arabia to
7:02 pm
car fi exactly why however he has yet to return to beirut following suggestions he's been detained and is on the house arrest saudis affair in lebanon has denied this insisting hariri hasn't returned because of security concerns so holder has the latest from beirut. springing up across the lebanese capital beirut expressing support to. the resigned prime minister whose fate really is unknown uncertain times in lebanon on the country finding itself crossroads for the past year this country and toward relative stability in a very turbulent region but things have changed and lebanon finds itself in the middle of the saudi iranian rivalry playing out across the region it's been like for quite some time since two thousand and five i guess it's been here really since really assassination. and we have two polls like saudi arabia and iran and those two polls have people on the ground in iran has done this others
7:03 pm
economics and in the middle of all this i think and. a lot of. special editions what they do best is that they they they lie and they say things. to make people more and maybe scared and to put this like political pressure on everyone just to get what they want we are in a. neighborhood hold many people here feel that the current crisis is going to march and allies them even further this in the community has long complained of iranian dominance in lebanon and now they're blaming their own ally saudi arabia of robbing them of their leader. and. this we want to know the reason behind his detention lebanon can't handle this crisis dignity the detention of a prime minister is unacceptable. sort of the conduct this is
7:04 pm
a loss for all of lebanon hariri is loved by everyone we are all upset by his detention no one will accept what is happening this is humiliation we won't be quiet we will demand his release. so for the time being all of the different parties of voiding political escalation but the question is this rare unity will it be short lived. now members of the trans-pacific partnership trade deal of agree to move forward without the involvement of the united states president donald trump withdrew support for the deal this year in favor of an america first policy that she hopes will save us jobs but on saturday the remaining eleven countries his trade total some three hundred sixty five billion dollars last year agreed on the core elements to proceed on the sidelines of the apec summit in vietnam when he has more now from
7:05 pm
down on the asia pacific economic cooperation summit ended with yet another photo opportunity the twenty one leaders came together in vietnam on the back of a difficult year for trade but continued on the sidelines of a pic with canadian prime minister justin trudeau at the center he initially balked at a deal to push ahead with the trans-pacific partnership trade agreement involving eleven apec members but after further often heated discussions between government ministers all t p p members finally agreed on the core elements of the pact. all eleven of us have agreed on the content with my time to actually the same high standards to twelve i think we've maintained a balance we've avoided opting for lower standards there are lots of areas where if you rush to agree high standards will be sacrificed but if you insist on high standards we can take a long time or some countries more drop out so all eleven countries are on board
7:06 pm
and this will send a very strong message to the u.s. and other countries in the region. that message is asia pacific country see regional trade deals as the best way forward that's in contrast to the views of u.s. president donald trump who withdrew the united states from the t p p the trans-pacific partnership isn't finalized yet some parts of the deal still need to be negotiated but the fact that it's still alive without the u.s. combined with china's increasingly assertive role in this region means that this apec summit has come to a close with a sense that the united states is looking more isolated even the final statement from apec leaders was contentious and took longer than usual to finalize reportedly because of u.s. concerns about the wording the leaders called for the removal of market distorting subsidies came after president trump was highly critical of unfair trade practices during his speech on friday. the promotion of free trade and investment in the asia
7:07 pm
pacific region is a mission for apec member economies to maintain a pact as a key driver for regional integration. despite the statement apec again showed that the united states under donald trump has a different view on trade to most other asia pacific nations wayne hay al-jazeera donning vietnam. well u.s. president on a tramp and his russian counterpart vladimir putin have agreed a joint statement supporting a political solution to the war in syria the leaders met on the sidelines of the apec summit in there now when they reaffirmed their commitment to syria sovereignty independence and territorial integrity they also called on all parties to the conflict including president bashar assad to take an active part in the geneva political process. just now we've adopted that document with the prism of the united states it's a very crucial document because we see it for some principle things firstly we continue the fight against terrorism in syria that's the most important for the
7:08 pm
united states and for us especially in light of are. tragic events which happened there to do with recent terrorist acts as i've said we've been confronting that evil for quite some time now it's important for the whole international community that we continue to apply joint if it's of the utmost importance that we reaffirm the suffering of syria its territorial integrity that after the fight against terrorism is over we'll start the political process under the auspices of the united nations let's go to any guy in washington d.c. for the latest and how is this statement being viewed in the u.s. . well perhaps understandably this is being viewed through the prism of the ongoing investigation into accusations that the trump campaign colluded with russia as president trump made his way to the white house basically every time that on trying to get anyone anywhere near vladimir putin the press here is watching very closely in the headline here in the united states today is that president donald
7:09 pm
trump essentially believes amir putin that he didn't meddle in the election here which basically goes against everything donald trump's own intelligence community has to say about the matter so the joint statement about syria is really taking a back seat to that ongoing investigation of course robert muller as already moving at a pretty rapid pace. donald trump's former campaign manager paul minor ford is currently under house arrest with other indictments expected to follow so all of this is being looked through that prism and remembered on trump as only met vladimir putin perhaps four times since july he met him very briefly at the apec summit perhaps three or four times so that is how it's being viewed here in the united states because our ongoing robert miller investigation is extremely important domestically and strongly important internationally and the implications of what may happen in the coming months for president on trumped up or tension huge yet it is significant at least two leaders have met even if it isn't for him is on an informal basis on
7:10 pm
the sidelines of the summit but is there anything new in this statement on the conflict in syria. well one commentator here having read that joint statement remember it's not an agreement it's just a statement so it basically contains no news and many cliches because all of these pledges and promises and agreements we've seen before from both these leaders so it's not known how much meat is really on the bones here how much difference this will make to the people of syria how in fact any of these agreements or these statements will be implemented on the ground but i think it will be seen as important if those actions are taken if there is in fact more cooperation between the u.s. military in the russian military on the ground if there are free and fair elections so it really depends on what happens and to see if these two nations can actually work together any gallacher in washington d.c. thank you neal. now thousands of polish nationalists are holding their annual march
7:11 pm
in the capital warsaw rally is being attended by supporters of the ruling lauren justice party is recent controversial court forms in refusal to welcome migrants has drawn criticism from the european union rally also attracts members are far right groups several counter-demonstrations are also planning taking to large anti fascism and pro-democracy protests david chaytor is in the polish capital warsaw and so david what's the turnout been like and how is the event gone today. maryam the polish state television is estimating the size of the march at some one hundred thousand protesters it was a marshal by the right wing groups themselves extreme right wing groups white supremacists. and they essentially looked after the march themselves there were no violent incidents at all the police kept in the background they had many many lines
7:12 pm
on the side streets keeping the counter demonstrators away from this the main demonstration it was one of the biggest demonstrations of the extreme right we've seen in europe so far they drew on or groups on all over the e.u. and even from the united states as well and at the moment the only instance we saw was a very brave group of women pensioners who decided to sit down right in the middle of that march and they were surrounded by the marshals and they were protected but they said they told us that they were sitting down in protest because they believed that what was happening in poland now and the the march of this extreme right wing was against their principles against their missions for the state of poland but they weren't they weren't going to move they weren't moved at all. but they were protected as this huge stream of the extreme right. passed by them that's the only
7:13 pm
instant we've actually seen but now they've just essentially crossed the bank of the bridge behind me and they'll be hearing several speeches but the rhetoric of the right wing here the extreme right wing is now part of the mainstream of politics we've heard it from the law and justice party the leader of the law and justice party said that he was afraid that immigrants and refugees were going to bring parasites and disease into poland now that is coming in the very center of the political life here in poland so it shows you that the rhetoric that we hear all the time on these these marches is beginning to take hold within within politics so at the moment no violent incidents of the marches going off peacefully they'll still be some speeches and we'll have to wait and see what effect the counter demonstrations will have but they were completely outnumbered by the number of protesters here on this march thank you very much.
7:14 pm
breaking records not tell you about the world's biggest online shopping. day. i'm just. looking at some of the problems that urgently need to be addressed at the climate change. hello there a tropical storm is making its way across the south china sea at the moment it's here has already made its way across the philippines and now it's gradually tracking its way towards the west is strengthening a little bit and gradually drifting west with further a slow pace so i don't think it's going to reach bit now until about monday towards the north fine and dry for most of us in the southeastern parts of china for now but the cloud really begins to build as we head through into monday and so we're
7:15 pm
likely to see some heavier rain that will run its way towards the northeast now for us cross india in the north is fine and dry at the moment but there is a major problem with small but that's not only across parts of india but also into pakistan as well further south you see plenty of cloud of rain here giving some of us some very very active rain and plenty more wet weather as we head through the next few days so sunday lots of rain particularly in the southeastern parts of india also affecting us in the northern parts of sri lanka though here in doha the temperatures definitely now is feeling rather pleasant outside thirty two degrees is the maximum there on sunday things do change a little bit on monday though the winds will be rather more active so it will be rather a blustery day and thirty degrees will be the top temperature here further south from us can is not as hot we're at twenty nine. hurrican harvey's destruction was indiscriminate with will there be an equal

7:18 pm
ministers of the former government and to civil society leaders in jail in madrid facing charges of rebellion and sedition real anger around that this is a movement that has suffered severe blows in recent weeks not just another thing by the constitutional court a couple of days ago of their declaration of independence on october the twenty seventh but tanami revoked here by the central government in madrid the government sacked them on the former president of course in exile in belgium facing a possible extradition and arrest on his return so they're demoralized up to a point they are politically and in some disarray the pro independence party is not united ahead of the december election to come but all of that said the emotion that a great many people here still feel towards the idea of independence is undiminished in fact reinforced if anything by the jailing of these political leaders well let's let's for a moment change pace now and give you a sense of that emotional sentiment i took a little trip to

7:21 pm
a resident who doesn't support catalonia drive for independence. difficult but not impossible. perez's a local stone mason there's little girl was and i stand on this they should never have asked for independence in my opinion and they should have looked for a new financial arrangement maybe because the only thing that has been provoked is disagreement among families in the entire place splitting people splitting everything. time passes slowly in a place like libya soon the snow will come and with it the winter tourist season visitors will pass between france and spain without really noticing on their way to slow. but people here most of them anyway have no doubt where they belong not in france or spain but catalonia journal al jazeera libya. five u.s. senators have strongly condemned president donald trump's environmental policy at
