10:03 pm
economics and they're in the middle of all this i think and. a lot of especially especially part of the sions 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 stronghold 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. this is
10:04 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 are voiding political escalation but the question is this rare unity will it be short lived. members of the trans-pacific partnership trade deal have agreed to move forward without the involvement of the united states president donald trump withdrew support for the day earlier this year in favor of an america first policy which he hopes will save the u.s. jobs but on saturday the remaining eleven countries whose trade total three hundred sixty five billion dollars last year agreed on the core elements to proceed on the sidelines of the apec summit and that now on wednesday as more from donna the asia pacific economic cooperation summit ended with yet another photo opportunity the
10:05 pm
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 we've maintained exactly the same high standards t p p 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 might drop out so all eleven countries are on board 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
10:06 pm
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 or the promotion of free trade and investment in the asia pacific region is a mission for opec member economies to maintain a pact as a key driver for regional integration. despite the statement apec again
10:07 pm
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. us president our trampin his russian counterpart let him be a person of great enjoying the statement as supporting a political solution to the war in syria the leaders met on the sidelines of that apec summit in vietnam where they reaffirmed their commitment to syria's sovereignty independence and territorial integrity they also called on all parties to the conflict including president bashar al assad to take an active part in the 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 principal things firstly we continue the fight against terrorism in syria that's most important for the united
10:08 pm
states and for us especially in light of recent tragic events which happened there it's of the utmost importance that we reaffirm the sovereignty 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. a last couple of hours we've been hearing that the cia director mike pompei o has reaffirmed his claim that russia interfered with the u.s. presidential election this comes after president jiang said he believed my putin's we knew just surance and the allegations are not true let's go trying to gallagher in washington d.c. for the latest and not surprising really that the cia director is pushing back when he hears his president saying he almost trusts the former f.s.b. chief that is vladimir putin rather than his own intelligence service. pretty remarkable situation to have happening but this is after all donald trump he said before that he knows more than these generals he said before that he knows more
10:09 pm
than those people that work in the intelligence community but what we have here is the president of the united states saying that he categorically believes that blood amir putin did not interfere in the u.s. election and then within a couple of hours the director of the see the cia someone who's fairly loyal to president trump saying look we're standing by our original report from january of this year that there is lots of evidence and then in fact the russians did interfere with the u.s. election so you've got this dichotomy this separation between the president and his own intelligence community who is standing by the information the reports and the digging that they've done and remember there are other things that have happened since then we've had facebook coming forward saying we had all these ads that were paid for by russians that tried to meddle in the election so the evidence seems pretty overwhelming that the russians did interfere in u.s. elections and probably will interfere in future elections but here you have the commander in chief saying that he believes vladimir putin so quite a remarkable situation remember the background to all this is an investigation into
10:10 pm
allegations of collusion between the trauma campaign and russia still ongoing that might moller headed investigation paul man of fort trumps former campaign manager is still currently under house arrest and more indictments are believed to be following in the next few months but still i think a remarkable situation where you have the president saying that he believes the leader of russia that he believes vladimir putin doesn't believe his own intelligence community extraordinary underpinning just take you back to where we were talking about this joint statement they put out about syria kind of a common scenario or anything in particular this new. not really i mean one commentator has said no news lots of cliches in other words have been some incremental movement here on deescalation zones near jordan but otherwise this is language we've heard before this is a statement not an agreement not a plan of action if you like it's a reaffirmation of things they've believed before and i think what people really
10:11 pm
want to see is action on the ground is free and fair elections in syria improved communication between russian and american forces and of course ultimately the peace deal to happen that is all just language of the moment a statement i think what people want to see is actual action on the ground an action that will bring that peace process to fruition but nothing really new in this statement and of course here in the u.s. domestically the focus is on that relationship between vitamin putin and donald trump and where that will go and clearly who he believes and what they could possibly do together and ultimately what will happen in robert muller's investigation indeed and get there thanks very much latest on the trumped. iraqi forces say they've captured one of the last remaining areas and i still control in the country to iraq in french divisions and sunni tribal forces are
10:12 pm
carrying out the operation in anbar province it's believed i saw fighters are holding ten thousand civilians hostage in the town of rawa imran khan has the latest from the iraqi capital banquette. the operation began early on saturday morning as iraqi forces went in to the town of ramadi is described as a town however it's a series of small villages where eisel fighters i have been holed up after they fled operations against them in ramadi and fallujah now this is on the border the border crossing with jordan which has been a strategic stranglehold for isolate managed to stop traffic coming in and out of that border crossing so this is quite key although we're not expecting huge amounts of isis fighters to be in the area the fact that they are still there means that they were controlling that territory and this is all about who gets to control the territory now we're not expecting this to be as large an operation as we've seen perhaps say in mosul or against eisel in syria what we're expecting is the
10:13 pm
operation to be concluded fairly swiftly in fact what militia sources are telling us from the ground in at amman is that ramana has already been liberated that hasn't been confirmed by the joint operations command that also the joint operations commander told i'll just say that they're very concerned about civilian casualties and they want to avoid them so they're going to go in and the step by step basis they're going to surround him on a first take ramana and then likely to move across the euphrates river and into and do exactly the same as a tactic that we've seen the iraqi security forces before take over areas outside of the areas i still control and then use that as a staging post to go in now like i said we're expecting this operation to take months or weeks it's going to be likely it is going to take days and we will have a news within the next few days about the operation itself but the iraqi security forces very confident that this they can they can route i still mourn their loss
10:14 pm
remaining strongholds in iraq. much more still to come on al-jazeera including the streets of basra alone are once again full of catalans calling for succession from spain plus. then he did what you wanted to do to me i lived with a lot of anger and pain and i was crying. reclaiming that confidence women fight back against sexual violence in the democratic republic of congo. hello there is sending call in now for some of us across europe there in the feeding down from the north you can see them all working their way down behind this area of low pressure there and as they do say they're bringing in that cool and fresh air and there's more still to come so four degrees is the maximum temperature there in stockholm and only around five in warsaw towards the west is mild if
10:15 pm
a now but it's a role of a dump and if this cloud of rain swings down towards the south it'll turn cooler behind it as well so london on monday will only be getting to eight and for paris will only be getting to knowing that area of town around hasn't moved very far it's here stretching across the alps and all the way up towards moscow there and many of us are going to see a fair amount of snow on that northern edge to the south that's where we'll be seeing the rain but again some of that is going to be very heavy somewhat weather is also affecting us a bit further south as well stretching from parts of greece there all the way down the course of the parts of italy and into the northern parts of africa for the far western parts of libya and for some of us in chile is here we can expect to see quite a few sharp showers during the date lots of thunder and lightning too and then it's gradually pushing its way towards the west there was we had three monday say for some of us in algeria we'll also be seeing some rather wet weather and attempt to struggling just to seventeen meanwhile towards the east there will be some cloud around for cairo but still we're up at twenty nine.
