8:02 am
world's problems speaking in the vietnamese capital hanoi trump was addressing questions on whether russia had meddled with last year's presidential election trump said he agreed with the u.s. intelligence community's assessment that moscow did interfere with the election but he also added that he believes the russian president vladimir putin believes himself when he says that russia played no part in influencing the outcome. i believe very much in our intelligence agencies now at the same time. i want to be able because i think it's very important to get along with russia to get along with china to get along with vietnam to get along with lots of countries because we have a lot of things we have to solve and frankly russia and china in particular can help us with the north korea problem which is one of our truly great problems so i'm not looking to stand and start arguing with somebody when this report is all
8:03 am
around and cameras recording and seeing our conversation i think was very obvious to everybody i believe that president putin really feels that he feels strongly that he did not meddle in our election what he believes is what he believes what i believe is that we have to get to work and i think everybody understood this that heard the answer we have to get to work to solve syria to solve north korea to solve ukraine to solve terrorism and you know people don't realize russia's been very very heavily sanction they were sanctioned at a very high level and that took place very recently it's now time to get back to healing a world that is shattered and broken those are very important things and i feel that having russia in a friendly pasha as opposed to always fighting with them is an asset to the world and an asset to our country not
8:04 am
a liability and by the way hillary clinton had the reset button she wanted to get back together with russia she even spelled reset wrong that's how it started and then it got worse president obama wanted to get along with russia but the chemistry wasn't there getting along with other nations is a good thing not a bad thing believe me it's a good thing not a bad thing. feingold is a republican political consultant joins me via skype from taipei i am not quite sure whether the president is walking a fine tightrope all sitting on the fence when he talks about russian involvement or not in the presidential election whether he believes president putin or not or he believes his security agency's or not. oh it's the key question but president trump gave the answer which is there was madeleine he president trump didn't deny it but he also outlined the issues that cooperation between the united
8:05 am
states and russia is necessary and the obvious ones are north korea syria ukraine in terrorism so the critics who. could be close to your precise president trump's conduct of foreign policy issue don't fault him for wanting to work with russia on those issues whether they can actually achieve the goals that president trump wants to achieve we don't know it's still early but the idea that president trump wants to have a platform and a channel to discuss these issues directly with president putin is something that he shouldn't be criticized for and frankly what are the other options it would be to a group russia in with the small number of countries that president trump does not have communication with their leaders such as venezuela or north korea ok with iran that's probably not realistic let's just let's come in on the north korea issue because obviously being amongst asia pacific leaders he's managed to gauge their
8:06 am
opinion in a very large group in a very short space of time his comments of also be very measured as well so how's the have they had an in direct influence really all the way that he's thinking about how to deal with north korea and how to get that message across you might say as he get has he heads towards milla to the r.c.m. coming from the firsts the first step in this process is to ensure that the stakeholders from the asia pacific region including russia are on board and cooperating with the u.n. sanctions so this is not a u.s. go it alone approach to north korea there have been new sanctions imposed as a result of north korea's provocative actions this year and watching missiles and conducting nuclear tests and china voted for the sanctions russia has voted for the sanctions and there. other countries around egypt which still had significant business ties in trade with north korea and under united states pressure those relationships are now being reassessed and frankly reduced so president trump is
8:07 am
carrying that same message in the face to face meetings and again people criticize the way he conducts foreign policy but the reality is on north korea he has been getting other countries to cooperate with the sanctions regime one of the issues that certainly will be pending when he arrives in manila is whether he's on the same page as president do ten say they both agree on fighting drugs they both agree on fighting terrorism but as nations they have had differences cannot be put to one side while they try and find a way to work together to deal with those issues especially north korea and issues of the south china sea which will be discussed but in the resort really depends on the issue south china sea obviously present it hard to is has changed the policies of the filipino government compared to his predecessor he certainly sought to seek accommodation whether or not that's in the united states best interest remains to be seen but the president trump will look consistent with his policies do what's
8:08 am
best for the united states as president to chart a well north korea yeah there is an element of cooperation that's necessary from the philippines as well so i think we'll see the focus on the areas that they can cooperate now long term there probably still are some issues where will be difficult for the philippines in the united states to cooperate not might come down to the personality differences rather than the things they have in common between the two leaders but they only briefly met in vietnam and they'll get a little more time together in the philippines but frankly for both countries they are dealing with issues that are beyond just the bilateral relationship and that will probably limit the amount of time that they have to work together but we shall see what does come out of joint press conferences later in the day for the moment to find gul thanks for joining us from taiwan. well the next stop for trump is the philippines as we said for the summit another block has to contend with those controversial issues such as the rangar crisis and trying his ambitions in the south china sea years as ross mentions but north korea is expected of easing to
8:09 am
dominate. reports now from. the asean meeting in manila is seen as the biggest event under the chairmanship of philippine president let me go to thirty twenty one heads of state as well as the united nations secretary general are expected to attend it comes at a time when the region is struggling with the growing security concerns. north korea is expected to dominate the discussions the united states' relationship with the isolated government of jong continues to get worse over north korea's missile and nuclear programs but despite it being 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 the organization the most contentious
8:10 am
issue of all 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. of the. u.s. . it's fight the grasshopper. give me. 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 bush their day refuses to use the arbitration ruling warned 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
8:11 am
to do with the first villepin. 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 prices in me and maher 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 of the good that there does human rights record last year trump was vocal about their support for doctors drug war which has left thousands of filipinos dead and critics say they worry that trumped my gloss over detectors drug war again which could encourage more state forces to commit human rights abuses in dog and al jazeera. meanwhile trump and putin have agreed on a joint statement supporting us from moscow. in his press conference in vietnam flooded my piece and said that the reason this agreement had been reached for the
8:12 am
united states this statements which was put out is that the fight against isis in syria is coming to an end the hot bed 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 did stunnel trump say that this or agreements have been reached between him and police in very quickly when we know that actually added 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 statements the commitments that both countries have made in the pos
8:13 am
also why considering both sides seem to be trumpeting this as a breakthrough was there no proper bilateral meeting between trump and police in vietnam will produce in was talking about that and saying well it was just a matter of show 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. well still ahead here on al-jazeera. or is how we deal with not only our own issues
8:14 am
but it's how we interpret our place in this world. described. native americans challenging stereotypes through. hello there we've got a few bits and pieces of cloud iran over the middle east at the moment on the satellite picture you can see a little area of cloud there drifting its way eastwards that's not giving us much in the way of heavy rain currently but is it works its way over the caspian sea it looks like it will intensify so along that south coast of the caspian sea i think we're going to see some pretty sharp downpours as we head through sunday eventually though on monday to drift its way eastwards and begin to ease and instead they'll be another developing feature for the towards the east that will be over parts of afghanistan say stretching into pakistan should help us clear some of the small good in pakistan and for afghanistan looks like it will bring us
8:15 am
a fair amount of snow over to italy over the mountains of the further towards the south and here in doha it's feeling quite pleasant out there at the moment thirty two degrees is our maximum on sunday but it does change as we head into monday the winds begin to pick up so the temperatures won't be quite as high and it will be a very blustery day meanwhile for the south it's actually warmer now in some of the clouds of cleared so thirty three degrees will be the maximum here than there was a solemn parts of africa lots of areas of rain here stretching all the way down through into malawi and down through into mozambique heavy downpours out of this system and it looks like that one only slowly eases as we head through the day on monday towards the southwest with more cloud for cape town. hurrican harvey's destruction was indiscriminate with will there be an equal recovery and then want to be the mayor of two cities that have and have not fought

lines discovers how the disparity between rich and poor is brought to the surface in times of crisis this is someone's life who they are their identity their culture . lines houston after harvey at this time on al-jazeera. welcome back you're watching officer i'd say hello rahman these are on top stories u.s. president donald trump says he wants to get along with russia in order to solve the world's problems speaking of the vietnamese capital had trump also said that he agreed with the u.s. intelligence community's assessment that moscow did interfere with the american
8:17 am
u.s. election. meanwhile trump on putin have agreed on a joint statement supporting a political solution to the war in syria the leaders reaffirmed their commitment to syria's sovereignty independence and territorial integrity and also called on all parties to the conflict including president bashar assad to take an active part in the geneva political process. new pictures have emerged of lebanon's prime minister saad hariri in saudi arabia they were aired on state television showing him meeting king solomon at port harry's whereabouts have been shrouded in mystery for a week with suggestions that he's under house arrest well her reason made no public remarks since his shock resignation in the saudi capital on saturday he said that he feared assassination and accused iran along with hezbollah of sowing strife in the arab world his political party the future movement says it's waiting for him to return to lebanon but it's also denounced attacks against the saudi kingdom and war
8:18 am
did rant about interfering with arab nations the lebanese president michel aoun wants saudi arabia to clarify exactly why hariri hasn't gone back to beirut he's told foreign ambassadors hariri has been kidnapped french president manuel micron has echoed similar concerns that he has said in a call with president on saturday that lebanese political leaders should enjoy freedom of movement back home will meet lebanon's foreign minister in paris on tuesday in a quarter has more from beirut. posters are springing up across the lebanese capital beirut expressing support to. the resigned prime minister whose faith really is unknown uncertain times in lebanon the country finding itself crossroads for the past year this country and toward relative stability in a very turbulent region but things have trains and lebanon finds itself in the middle of the saudi iranian rivalry playing out across the region it's been like
8:19 am
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 of those economics and in the middle of all that i think and live on a lot of special put additions 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 mainly sunni 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.
8:20 am
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. 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 very unity will it be short lived when we could really 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 the a morality and
8:21 am
a couple 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 had different different views or within the administration now with the tillerson statement yesterday we have vague views and the u.s.
8:22 am
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. well to europe now independence day celebrations in poland have also been marked by a huge far right rally in warsaw among those taking part were supporters of the ruling law and justice party david chaytor. 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 now now entering the
8:23 am
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 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 is 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 from the recent post i don't like the law and just as government and the way they conduct
8:24 am
the promises they did a few good things with polls 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 at 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 chaytor al jazeera wasil. well yemen state are still being granted permission to fly almost a week after the saudi led coalition shut down all movement in and out of the country following a missile attack the united nations is warning of a humanitarian catastrophe 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 a complete blockade from the lend ear and see it was in response to
