president and his party call for his return home. i'm not matheson this is all just a lie from doha also coming up defying u.s. intelligence reports donald trump says he believes a lot to me a putin's denials of russian interference in last year's presidential election. least three quarters of a million people march in barcelona demanding the release of catalan leaders from jail. and big far right rallies in poland on the country's independence day. new pictures emerged of lebanon's prime minister in saudi arabia they were aired on state television showing him meeting king solomon and riyadh airport. have been shrouded in mystery and weeks and days that are suggestions he's under house arrest
. how do these made no public remarks shock resignation in the saudi capital saturday he said he feared assassination and accused iran along with hezbollah of sowing strife in the arab world is political party the so-called future movement says it's waiting for them to return to lebanon but it's also denounced attacks against the saudi kingdom and warned iran about interfering with arab nations the lebanese president michel aoun one side the arabiya to clarify exactly why hillary hasn't gone back to beirut he told foreign ambassadors have really has been kidnapped french president emanuel has echoed similar concerns he said in a call with one on saturday that lebanese political leaders issued enjoy freedom of movement he's going to receive lebanon's foreign minister in paris on tuesday in a harder has more from beirut. posters are 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 at a 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 many like him for quite some time since two thousand and five i guess it's when he really thinks things are really assassination. and we have two polls like saudi arabia and iran and those who oppose have people on the ground iran has tons of those 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 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. in the not of this we want to know the reason behind his detention lebanon can't handle this crisis thank goodness the detention of a prime minister is unacceptable sort of a can the this is 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. well ronny who is
a professor of journalism at the american university of beirut he's also a senior fellow at harvard university he believes the saudi action has backfired well and i think that saudi t.v. shows now is going to be probably the opposite of the truth in the eyes of most lebanese unfortunately the saudi media has liked them at r.t. and a couple of others have totally lost their credibility in the last three or four months and this isn't this is not going to be taken very seriously the super irony of what's going on is that twice now in a row the saudis with some of their colleagues in the gulf and egypt they've tried in qatar and now they've tried in lebanon to squeeze these countries thinking they're weak small vulnerable countries and that these countries would capitulate to their demands and exactly the opposite has happened the long term solution is there has to be a strong arab iranian dialogue and not just a dialogue but a serious. negotiation that hasn't happened yet but i think we need to start
thinking in those big terms it's unlikely the us by itself can do it partly because you have incoherence as the driving force of american foreign policy i mean before we heard different different views or within the administration now with the tillerson statement yesterday we have vague views and the u.s. seems to be criticizing both iran and saudi arabia which is which is certainly reasonable so i don't think the u.s. can do this by itself they've tried with the qatar g.c.c. if you would haven't succeeded it's going to have to be a combination of the u.s. some europeans the french certainly try the germans are certainly going to try i hope and possibly some people from from around the region. u.s. president donald trump has labelled investigations into alleged russian interference in last year's presidential election as quote an artificial democratic hit job made the comments in vietnam own route to the capital hanoi he told
reporters he believed russian president vladimir putin's assertions that moscow had no part in any election meddling said that he'd question putin again on the subject when they met informally on the sidelines of the asia pacific economic cooperation summit in vietnam but those comments are in stark contrast to that of the u.s. central intelligence agency the cia director michael peo is reaffirming a report that russia did run a campaign to influence the election outcome a cia spokesperson said that the director stands by and has always stood by the january twenty seven thousand intelligence community assessment and that the intelligence assessment with regard to russian election meddling has not changed. as a political analyst and professor of public policy at george mason university he says trump's comments will have little impact on the investigation into russian meddling all the findings so far which points to moscow's involvement. it's exempted by as
acar by congress by members of the trumpet ministration by his own chief of staff they said with high confidence that russia meddled in the twenty sixteen u.s. presidential election on behalf of donald trump what president trump is doing here when he says that he believes. he says they had nothing to do with the election what he's saying is there's nothing there that's the message trump wants to communicate it's a way of saying all the investigations going on from the special counsel the special prosecutor looking into collaboration between the quote from the campaign and the russians they won't find anything and that that's why he's saying he believes special came a prosecutor has his own mandate he's own support he's independent and robert mueller is very independent and he has some highly skilled professional attorneys working on this investigation i don't think this this point by a president that he believes putin didn't have anything to do with it i don't think
is going to make a bit difference on donald trump of the to me a person of agreed in a joint statement supporting a political solution to the war in syria that is reaffirmed their commitment to syria 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 geneva political process trump said he and putin reached the agreement very quickly. it was 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 united states and for us especially in light of recent 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 and its territorial integrity that after the fight against terrorism is over we'll start the political process under the auspices of the united nations and. in his press conference in vietnam flatterer piece and said that the reason this agreement had been reached for the united states this statements which was put out is that the fight against isis in syria is coming to an end the hotbed of terrorists as he put it in syria is being defeated and the important thing now is to finish that job then the circumstances will be right for moving ahead with the geneva peace process but there are a few questions left hanging in the air about all of this one is why was it the kremlin that puts out this statement a full six or seven hours before the u.s. state department released its version why deeds donald trump say that this agreement had been reached between him and police in very quickly when we know that
actually and have been bashed around for many days now by rex ellison and sergei lavrov why does it also break no real new ground or the commitments that we have been in this statement of commitments that both countries have made in the past also why considering both sides seem to be trumpeting this as a breakthrough was there no proper bilateral meeting between trump and produce in vietnam will produce it was talking about that and saying well it was just a matter of julian problem that their pride so coal's didn't quite match up with each other he jokes i assume that someone was going to be punished for this but he also alluded that there were problems and that perhaps the united states hadn't been as committed as russia was he said when he was asked what the suggest is that there was no meeting his answer was well it suggests that there are still there is still a deep crisis in the u.s.
russia relationship russia he says would like it to make it better the united states the illusion is it seems to be dragging its feet. hundreds of thousands of probably independence supporters have demonstrated in the streets of barcelona they're demanding the release of catalan leaders fired by the national government in madrid and her in prison for their role in last month's secession bid barcelona's police say at least seven hundred fifty thousand people took part it's the largest protest since madrid began jailing the former regional leadership council on village of livia has already separated from spain geographically at least nearly five hundred years ago when the whole went to see how people there view this is session dead. two hours from barcelona the mediterranean kline's to the foothills of the pyrenees. the town of libya is a piece of spain surrounded by france the languages capital and and they see
themselves as an enclave of catalonia and just on the end. we already feel independent because in some way we believe that we've already built our borders any given moment we could see let's separate libya from this. inside a twelfth century a prison tower libya's mayor shows off relics of spain's not forgotten past. he explains how on the day of catalonia independence referendum libya's ballot boxes were hidden from the police up here with the bust of general franco and fascist political leader primo de rivera placed on top. of irony in the. name with the sentiment is there the majority of the village favors independence
the voting was ninety five percent for the u.s. cyprus. it was a quirk of history that one libya geographical if not political independence. in sixteen fifty nine the treaty of the pyrenees ended the war between spain and france under the treaty villages on the spanish side of the border was ceded to france but libya was considered a town and so it remained part of spain. in the bars and cafes of this mountain town it's difficult to find a resident who doesn't support catalonia drive for independence is. difficult but not impossible. parazit is a local stone mason there's a little girl dressed as a nice. 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 jonah how al-jazeera libya still ahead on al-jazeera a push to keep women drivers on the road in new delhi comes to a halt find out what the government's dropped a car rationing scheme despite a pollution crisis and asian leaders defy the u.s. and stand by plans to proceed with an open free trade agreement for the region.
from cool brisk north in few weeks. to the warm tranquil waters of southeast asia. hello there we've got a storm with us in the south china sea at the moment it shows up quite clearly on the satellite picture this blob of cloud here but it seems to be losing some of its intensity as it works its way towards the west hopefully it should keep its worst to itself elsewhere and is generally fine to settle for many of us across the southeastern part of china at the moment but we all seeing the moisture begin to flow in so as we head through monday we will clowns building if you will outbreaks of rain as well and some of those i like to be a little bit heavy towards the south and there's also some heavy downpours here but interlaced with some pretty bright areas of sunshine so it will be a mixed bag for most of us as we head through the next few days for java though that's where there's more in the way of dry weather and not much in the way of sherry downpours and till we head into monday and the wet weather pushes its way south with we'll see more in the way of rain now talking of rain is plenty of it
for the southern parts of india at the moment with this system here this is a storm that worked its way across thailand and now it's making its way just across towards the southern parts of india it's lost a lot of its identity though so it's not a storm anymore but it certainly is giving some very heavy rain still and some of us could even see some flooding after this is it stays with us through sunday and into monday it's also affecting us ensure like. the weather sponsored by qatar race. tracing the fall from prosperity to financial ruin this is precisely the movement where we humanized that nothing was first wealthy in greece the devastating impact to save the banks means also to save the deposits for bob in their recent visits and the failure to prevent disaster banks and political leaders of the people who needed to learn the less i go or from democracy to the markets at this time on al-jazeera.
you're watching all just a reminder of the top stories this hour new pictures of a most of lebanon's prime minister saad hariri in saudi arabia they were aired on state television showing him meeting king solomon and we had an airport president in excel oh no one saudi to clarify why hide it he's not returned to lebanon. u.s. president donald trump is calling investigations into whether russia interfered in last year's presidential election an artificial democratic job said he believed russian president vladimir putin's latest to sessions that moscow had no part in any election meddling. trump and putin have also agreed in
a joint statement supporting a political solution to the war in syria the latest we have from their commitment to syria's sovereignty independence and territorial integrity he also called on all parties to the conflict including president bashar al assad to take an active part in the geneva political process. independence day celebration in poland has turned out to be a powerful show of strength for right wing extremists they've held a huge rally and warsaw including supporters of the ruling a law and justice party whose refusal to welcome migrants has drawn intense criticism from the european union has more. the independence day march through warsaw 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 for the track to nazi groups of 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 it's deeply on the rise counter 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 middle of the route and refusing to budge it from my c.d.'s where there's the. fears of violence proved unfounded but fears remain about what the advance of the far right mean for the future of every year the nationalist marches become larger and larger. this is also reflected in politics so war and more people are voting for extreme right wing parties. in a stark contrast to the march of the extremists antigovernment protesters who are 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 on the
assumption that you suppose i don't like the law and just as government and the way they conduct the promises they did a few good things will 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 lay heavily on the conscience of government ministers david chase or al-jazeera will soon. iraqi government forces have launched an offensive to recapture one of the last remaining areas under eisel control in the country two infantry divisions and sunni tribal forces are carrying out the operation in anbar province it's believed deisel fighters holding ten thousand civilians hostage in the town of rawa imran khan has the latest on the offensive from the iraqi 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 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 in iraq 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 outages there 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 of the areas eisel control and then use that as a staging post to go in now like i said we're not expecting the celebration to take months or weeks it's going to be likely it is going to take days so 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. eleven countries involved in the trans-pacific partnership trade deal have agreed to proceed with the pact but without u.s. involvement president donald trump withdrew support for the deal after assuming office throwing its future into doubt but the remaining leaders have decided to go ahead on the sidelines of the apec summit in vietnam when he has more from. 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 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 eleven of us have agreed on the content 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 countries 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
pacific region is a mission for apec member economies to maintain apec is the 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 china is pushing for south korea to reengage with pyongyang to help solve the current nuclear threat president xi jinping that with the south korean counterpart in vietnam the two leaders agreed on the need to manage the security situation on the korean peninsula she told me that the dialogue was the best way forward for reconciliation and in the nuclearization. north korea has hurled more insults at the us president accusing him of begging for a nuclear war during his visit to asia young's foreign ministry labeled war monger
