1:02 am
and he's on the house arrest the affair in lebanon has denied this insisting hariri hasn't returned because of security concerns saying 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 the country finding itself crossroads for the past year this country enjoyed 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 him for quite some time since two thousand and five i guess that's when he really thinks things are really assassination. and we have two polls so there may be on the run and those two polls have people on the ground in iran has done this others
1:03 am
economics and they're in the middle of all this i think and live under 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 the sunni 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
1:04 am
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 avoiding political escalation but the question is this rare unity will it be short lived. u.s. president donald trump 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 vietnam where they reaffirmed their commitment to syria's sovereignty and dependence and territorial integrity they also called on all parties to the conflict including president bashar al 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
1:05 am
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 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. the cia has released a statement saying its director mike pump aoe still believes russia interfered with last year's u.s. presidential election this comes as president trying said he believes putin's renewed assurance that it's not true i spoke to mike hanna who is in washington d.c. for us so might what kind of reaction has the president's acceptance of putin saying russia didn't touch the presidential election kind of reaction is that sparked. well president trump's been on record as saying that allegations as he puts
1:06 am
a russian involvement in the u.s. electoral process are a hoax and a fabrication so his position well known however these comments in support of president putin and accepting president putin's insistence that russia had no role to play in any form of disrupting the electoral process does come as a shock to many particularly those lawmakers on the hill members of the senate to members of the house who are carrying out investigations into precisely these allegations so to of course a special counsel robert miller who is carrying out a wide ranging investigation into allegations that russia are involved in the electoral process so certainly president trump appears to be undercutting all these intelligence committees looking into the matter and importantly the investigation by the spencer special counsel robert mueller himself and as you say the intelligence community has reacted also not favorably to what president one percent
1:07 am
. well let's just walk back here in january the intelligence agencies released a report finding categorically that russia had been involved in the election medlin the intention was to provide a trump victory and to disrupt the chances of hillary clinton now that was the finding of the u.s. joint intelligence agencies it was a joint report cia f.b.i. all the agencies coming together now the cia has just to react to to president trump's comments a spokesperson stating categorically that the director of the cia mike pompei or stands by that intelligence report back in january thereby contradicting a man who is seen as particularly close with so certainly this is a major step in a way that the cia is seen to be having to publicly stand by an intelligence report that nobody apart from president trump had disputed in the past one must remember
1:08 am
too that robert melissa investigation is now well under way number of subpoenas have been served we've got charges have been laid against a former campaign manager of donald trump and importantly to a foreign policy advisor to the trunk campaign who has turned state witness it would appear providing allegations of collusion between the trunk campaign and russian interests so president trumps comments are interpreted by some on the hill certainly the key democrat leader that i'm sure of as reeking of desperation saying that president knows that what he is saying is not strictly true in fact it is nothing but a false hold your thoughts there mike. thousands

of polish nationalists have held that annual march in the capital warsaw to mark independence day the rally was launched the attended by supporters of the ruling law and justice party is recent controversial court reforms and to welcome migrants has drawn criticism from the european union has more from more so. the independence day march through also was the biggest stage so far by right wing extremists state television estimated more than one hundred thousand protesters took part it was a show of strength attracted nazi groups and white supremacists from countries right across europe the views of the extreme right are now entering the political mainstream in poland and the number of xenophobic attacks particularly against the muslim community is steeply on the rise counted demonstrations were kept well out of the way of the march by lines of police blocking side streets but a group of women pensioners managed to stage their own protest sitting down in the
1:10 am
middle of the route and refusing to budge it from my c.d.'s when everybody. fears of violence proved unfounded but fears remain about what the advance of the far right need for the future of every year the nationalist march has become larger and larger. this is also reflected in politics so more and more people are voting for extreme right wing parties. in a stark contrast to the march of the extremists antigovernment protesters were paying their respects to the man who set himself on fire last month declaring the ruling party was destroying both the law and democracy in the country from one since it was i don't like the law and just as government in the way they conduct their promises they did a few good things for poles but mostly they do things in a shameless and arrogant way under the cover of the night and i don't like that. they also came to lay rocks at the scene building a can in a memorial to his sacrifice which cost of his life rocks they hope will they

1:12 am
year before no expectations but that's why i'm here because i feel people have to take the issue into their own hands if something is to happen back in june president trump outraged the climate change lobby when he announced that the united states was pulling out of the paris agreement today i'm taking bold action to follow through on that promise my administration is putting an end to the war on coal and have clean coal really. but if trump believes support for the paris accord would drift away saturday's climate conference proved him wrong delegates from u.s. cities states and businesses accounting for more than half of the country's economy were in bonn to demonstrate their continued support for urgent climate change the overall message here in this venue is that the united states of america is. very much we are. in the conference california governor

1:15 am
towards the idea of independence is undiminished of anything reinforced by the behavior of the government in madrid by the jailing of these elected public officials. still to come on the program the trans-pacific partnership lives on after eleven countries agree a coup deal without the united states and how the world's best sailors are helping the environment as a race around the world. hello there there's plenty of rain being sucked across australia at the moment on the satellite picture you can see feeding down from the north and then working down through the northern territory and into south australia for the southeast corner of australia though things here are a bit different we've got an area of high pressure over the top of us and that's going nowhere in a great hurry so things here are fine unsettled but elsewhere they're not and
1:16 am
because of this area of high pressure this weather system can't move eastward so instead it's going to stay with us where it is over the next few days plenty more showers then still to come for perth the charity should eventually begin to clear a monday does look a bit drier over towards new zealand and here it's certainly been very very wet over the last day or so with thanks to this spiraling weather system here that's now clearing out the way though and the winds easing as well so as we head through the day on sunday and into monday there should be more in the way of sunshine and less in the way of cloud and twenty degrees will be the maximum there and still a bit cooler force in christchurch though as we head up towards japan we've also had a fair amount of heavy rain with us recently as well but that's all moving away now and the winds easing too so twelve degrees will be the maximum temperature in sendai the temperatures gradually recovering there towards the west it's also quiet for us here as well beijing there should get to around eleven degrees on sunday.

calling on saudi arabia to clarify exactly why prime minister saad hariri is yet to attend a beirut seven days off to his shop resignation u.s. president and his russian counterpart vladimir putin have agreed a joint statement supporting a political solution to the war in syria. and pounds of polish nationalists have been holding their annual independence day march in the capital so. members of the trans-pacific partnership trade deal have agreed to move forward without the involvement of the united states withdrew support for the deal only this year in favor of his america first policy which he hopes will save us jobs but the remaining eleven countries have now agreed on the core elements to proceed on the sidelines of the apec summit in vietnam. from then on. the asia pacific economic cooperation summit ended with yet another photo opportunity the
1:19 am
twenty one leaders came together in vietnam on the back of a difficult year for trade that 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 living aversive agreed on the continent we've maintained exactly 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 might drop out so all eleven countries are on board and this will send a very strong message to the us and other countries in the region. that message is asia pacific country see regional trade deals as the best way forward that's in
1:20 am
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
1:21 am
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. iraqi forces say they've captured one of the last remaining areas and i still control in the country to iraq invention divisions and sunni tribal forces are carrying out the operation in anbar province it's believed i saw fighters are holding ten thousand civilians hostage in a town every hour and has the latest from the capital baghdad. 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
1:22 am
that border crossing so this is quite key although we're not expecting huge amounts of i saw 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 operation to be concluded fairly swiftly in fact what militia sources are telling us from the ground in 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 our desire that they're very concerned about civilian casualties and they want to avoid them so they're going to go in and a step by step basis they're going to surround romana 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
1:23 am
of the areas eisel control and then use that as a staging post to go in now like i said we're not 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 eisel the last remaining stronghold in iraq. yemen a stay airline has still not been granted permission to fly almost a week after the saudi led coalition shut down all movement in and out of the country following a hoofy missile attack the united nations is demanding a full lifting of the restrictions to avoid a humanitarian catastrophe on the hand has the latest. her son is desperate to get out of yemen these pills of what's keeping his wife alive her condition requires treatment in egypt but on monday the airplanes were put on hold when the saudi led coalition imposed
