new pictures of emerged of lebanon's prime minister. there were aired on state television showing him meeting king solomon airport where abouts have been shrouded in mystery in recent days there are suggestions he's under house arrest really has made no public remarks since his shock resignation in the saudi capital last saturday he said he feared and accused iran a long with hezbollah of sowing strife in the arab world is political party the future of the 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 saudi arabia to clarify exactly why harry hasn't gone back to beirut he's told foreign ambassadors have really has been kidnapped french president emanuel has echoed similar concerns he
5:03 am
said in a call with out one on saturday that lebanese political leaders should enjoy the freedom of movement he's going to receive lebanon's foreign minister in paris on tuesday is in a hot 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 enjoy 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 and i think 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 two polls have people on the ground iran has tons
5:04 am
of those economics and in the middle of all this i think and live on a lot of special editions what they do best is they 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. now. 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 the can the been this is
5:05 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 of voiding political escalation but the question is this rare unity will it be short lived. ronnie corey is a professor of journalism at the american university of beirut and 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 like them or are they in 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
5:06 am
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 had different different views or within the administration now with the tillerson statement yesterday we have vague views us 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

seen as a pariah state all ten member countries of the association of southeast asian nations have diplomatic ties with north korea and the united states is expected to put more pressure on countries to take a stronger stand against kim jong un but for their again his asian the most contentious issue a ball is the dispute in the south china sea china and the united states have been disagreeing over policies when it comes to disputed waters claimed by several as the a member states many see it as a fight between giants. us. it's fight the grasshopper. but i was also. a framework on the code of conduct between china and assay and is expected to lay the ground rules that will guide navigation and exploration in

disputed waters but president but their day refuses to use the arbitration ruling won by the philippines against china at the hague vietnam now finds itself the lone strong voice among countries against china where you have. a situation where the philippines has no clear policy on what to do with the first. issue that this good enough for china because it buys them more time to consolidate their position in the south china sea the migrant and refugee issues are expected to be discussed including the reading your crisis in myanmar isis growing influence in the region is also on the agenda but many filipinos here say they're more worried about domestic issues like president or the good that there does human rights record last year was vocal about the support for the drug war which has left thousands of filipinos dead and critics say they worry that trump might gloss over

5:11 am
these are also not. for they're tired. we're expecting there might be strong statements that will be coming from there from their meeting. president the tartars been parroting the from the pings towards china and russia since he got into into power how do you think that's going to play out in his meetings with donald trump. this is very interesting. president given the very most part of his presidency is the ready made his foreign policy announcements of independent foreign policy. you know moving away from that you as it will be closer to china and russia what's interesting here is that despite this policy paralysis on the ground for example we see the strong influence of the u.s. in terms of the are there to government the very basis for example are still very much they are. treated deals are still really with the united states but
5:12 am
interestingly this is unfortunately for for that they're there to get the support of a lot of trial for example first controversial policy of the war of drugs earlier this year. by kids on economic pockets was suspended governance of the u.s. state department on the grounds of human rights issues and he's a warrant out so this could also be a possibility. you know. given that there was a it is so earlier statements that he will be really to get economy aids for example or a b. and b. diary aids from the u.s. without condition that it's and we don't want least the best the policy with the award talks you know let's talk about the human rights on it because it's become almost did a good for visiting u.s. presidents to the front of things to talk about human rights accusations of
5:13 am
violations there how do you think donald trump is going to handle that and we expect to be disappointed we don't think this will be brought that the human right . speculation of the war of drugs despite despite previous statements from her of the u.s. state department their human rights organizations at the international level i don't think donald trump will be pursuing that kind of that kind of thought specially that their day already could easily up we have to. not be allowed we will talk to talk about these issues that the u.s. president should leave off his hands on human rights issues in the philippines because these are domestic issues that should not be considered under the influence of the of the americans and. during the during the first phone call between trump and that there are days we also have to be reminded that donald trump
5:14 am
despite that wrote this for many even u.s. government officials and of course in the philippines congratulate that that they're different will be a good job the water jobs and these of course sense of ariel aren't signet on where the u.s. president stands now and human rights issues are going to thank you very much indeed for your time thank you ron. u.s. president has labeled investigations into alleged russian interference in last year's presidential election as quote artificial democratic hit job made the comments in vietnam all routes to the capital hanoi he told reporters he believed the 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 the view of the u.s. central intelligence agency the cia director might pompei it was reaffirming
5:15 am
a report that russia did run a campaign to influence the election outcome cia spokesperson said the director stands by and has always stood by the january twenty seven intelligence community assessment. that the intelligence assessment with regard to russian election meddling has not changed well bill schneider is a political analyst and professor of public policy at george mason university he says tom's comments will have little impact on the investigation into russian meddling all of the findings so far which point to moscow's involvement. it's accepted 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
5:16 am
communicate it's a way of saying all the investigations going on from the special counsel the special prosecutor looking into a collaboration between the crowd from campaign and the russians they won't find anything and that that's why he's saying he believes a special come up prosecutor has his own mandate his 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 trump that he believes putin didn't have anything to do with it i don't think it's going to make a bit different. plenty more ahead on the news hour including the far right marches into mainstream politics thousands of polish nationalists celebrate independence day in the capital warsaw. why new delhi's local government has had to drop a car rationing scheme despite a severe pollution crisis. there are all hand a twenty year football world cup qualifying drive to go through to details with joe

later in the program. hundreds of thousands of pro 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 who are in prison for their role in last month's recession bed barcelona's police say at least seven hundred fifty thousand people took part it's the largest protest since madrid began janie the former regional leadership they got a lot of village on livia has already separated from spain geographically at least twenty five hundred years ago john holl went to see how people there view this is a bit. yes two hours from barcelona the mediterranean coast kline's to the foothills of the pyrenees.

5:19 am
village favors independence the voting was ninety five percent for the yes. it was a quirk of history that one libya it's 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 it 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. peres is a local stonemasons there's a little girl was and i stand on this they should never have asked for independence in my opinion and they should have looked for
5:20 am
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. yankel independence day celebration in poland has turned out to be a powerful show of strength for right wing extremists that held a huge rally in warsaw including supporters of the ruling law and justice party whose refusal to welcome migrants has drawn intense criticism from the european union david chaytor as more. independence day march through warsaw was the biggest
5:21 am
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 did not see groups of white supremacists from countries right across europe the views of the extreme right you are now entering the political mainstream in poland and the number of xenophobic attacks particularly against the muslim community is steeply 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 when the. fears of violence proved unfounded but fears remain about what the advance of the far right need for the future posed 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 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 on the assumption you suppose i don't like the law and just as government in the way they conduct the 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 it. they also came to lay rocks of the scene building a care 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 al jazeera. donald trump and vladimir putin of agreed in a joint statement supporting a political solution to the war in syria but leaders reaffirmed their commitment to syria's sovereignty independence and territorial integrity they also called on all
5:23 am
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 their agreement very quickly. just now we've adopted net 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 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 chalons has more from moscow. in his press conference in vietnam flooded my piece and said that the reason this agreement had been reached
5:24 am
for the united states this statements which was puts hounds is that the fight against isis in syria is coming to an end that's 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 the kremlin that puts out this statement a full six or seven hours before the u.s. state department released its version why did donald trump say that this rule agreements have been reached between him and police in very quickly when we know that actually intervene 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 pos 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 show julian problem that their approach so coles 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. the u.n. and european union are welcoming initial steps by the side in a military coalition to lift its blockade on yemen the government held southern

5:35 am
answers. at the moment i believe our thought was assassinated and i demand to investigate his death and find the criminals. and walk out of we all came children and women young and old people from all over gaza to commemorate a symbol of the palestinian cause. yes out of our fight is a symbol of free people all over the world i think all revolutionaries should commemorate this anniversary with the recent reconciliation of fatah and hamas the onus is now on the current leaders to deliver on the long held hope of a palestinian state. and iraqi forces have launched an offensive to capture one of the last remaining areas and i still control in the country to infantry divisions and sunni tribal forces are carrying out the operation and province and it's believed by so fighters are holding ten thousand civilians hostage in the town of rabat and non-con has the latest on the offensive
