12:03 pm
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 done this others economics and in the middle of all this i think and live on a lot of special 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 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. now. we want to know the reason behind his detention lebanon can't handle this
12:04 pm
crisis thank dignity the detention of the prime minister is unacceptable sort of the can the this is a loss for all of lebanon hariri is loved by everyone we're all upset by his detention no one will accept what is happening this is humiliation for lebanon we won't be quiet we will demand his release. and let's go live now to and i who is in beirut and behind you we seeing a lot of people who are taking it rather easy it must be said given that this is the beirut marathon. or yes a yearly sporting event but really it's taking on and new meaning because this event really aims at bringing people together but lebanon passing through on certain times many people here feel that their prime minister seidel how d.d. is in one way or another detained that he is being prevented from returning to levon on it after that sudden announcement that he resigned on saturday we've been
12:05 pm
seeing images of the prime minister meeting the saudi king images of the prime minister sitting out with the rulers in abu dhabi but we haven't heard from him we've been talking to people here and what they tell you is that whether or not we support him or were against him this is not the point lebanon feels very humiliated the dignity of this country has been hurt they want their prime minister to return to the country in fact there are some posters that it has sprung up across the capital as you've seen earlier demanding his return so people from different political parties from different sects all coming together with one voice really they want their prime minister to return home and just wondering whether those new pictures broadcast by saudi t.v. of saad hariri meeting king solomon at riyadh airport whether that will have any effect whatsoever on the can prevail in lebanon today. no those images will not change the mood in fact there are reports now we haven't been able
12:06 pm
to confirm them that the prime minister may speak in a live interview either later tonight or in the coming days we've been asking the people here you know if you hear from the prime minister in saudi arabia will that be enough to prove to you that he is not under house arrest or he can move freely and they said no we want him to come back home. if the lebanon's president michel aoun himself has said that whatever he says the public remarks he makes if they're not made in lebanon they will not be taken officially we have to bear in mind that yes saddam how did he has resigned but his resignation has not been accepted by the president there demanding that he returns home so right now there is this unity a rare unity across lebanon's political divide that how do you need to return to the country definitely the political differences are still here you talk to some people and they say well yes hezbollah is our fault hezbollah should disarm and hezbollah should stop you know imposing iran's agenda in lebanon but they still
12:07 pm
insist that the prime minister must return all right for now and then i thank you send a honda live in beirut now president trump has sought to clarify his remarks on blasphemy putin and the issue of russian meddling in last year's presidential election it's also called on all nations to work together and he said that he just wants to get along with russia and north korea he was speaking in vietnam and he addressed questions on whether russia meddled in last year's presidential election and he said he accepted the u.s. intelligence assessment that moscow did interfere but he also excepted the russian president's belief that russia had played no part 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
12:08 pm
a lot of things we have to sell 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. well he also talked about support for his cause against north korea saying that all responsible nations should act to stop its nuclear and missile threats he emphasized also the importance of all nations working together for the greater good we have to get to work and i think everybody understood this they heard the answer we have to get to work to solve syria to solve north korea to solve ukraine to solve terrorism it's now time to get back to healing a world that is shattered and broken those are very important things well graham on the web is a research fellow at nanyang technological university in singapore what did he make of president trump which. he does sound like the great globalist except for many
12:09 pm
observers in the region he isn't using a globalist he is an isolationist in the least the messaging that he is delivering right now as we speak while he's visiting. the philippines is creating confusion increasing confusion rather than lessening it over the last few months we've been receiving mixed signals from the trunk ministration about the exact specifications of the role of the united states here in this region in economic and security terms i think right now optimism has and hasn't grown it's lessened there's a signal perhaps you've been assigned in the cards that i can ask you one has to get on with doing a great number of things on its own. the syrian province of aleppo is again under heavy bombardment by government more planes that are targeting rebel fighters the bombings began this week and they have forced thousands of civilians to flee the
12:10 pm
area and to set up makeshift camps in the countryside the u.n. has expressed concern over the continuous bombing by russian backed syrian government forces also have been jade is following developments for us from gaziantep on the turkish side of the border with syria. aleppo is a busy big province and the city is part of it so on the outskirts of aleppo city there are pockets that people fled from aleppo city which are still under rebel control this particular area where this latest campaign by the syrian government is under way it's close to the aleppo it live border these are the two provinces and these areas were held by rebels and now syrian forces are pushing to words and it's worth noting that this is an area that is just on the outskirts of the deescalation zone as well so it is perfectly ok and legal for syrian government forces and their russian ally for them are the very end and push the rebels back and this is what the contention of the syrian opposition has been that they have been saying that
12:11 pm
the escalation zones rather have been helping to bring down civilian casualties but they're also an excuse for the assad government and its allies to consolidate their control and push rebels back to words these areas where they would if they fire back they would be in violation of the noise and it is very difficult for the people who've been displaced from place to place from aleppo city from other parts of provinces in these areas which have come under relentless bombardment in the last five years to try and set up shop here is a few of them who told us how it feels and what do they have now as they move from their homes. we don't have any shelter new tents no cover when we left we didn't take anything the syrian army went after us with airstrikes and now the children sleep while there. is no water no power no roads just remove a lot for god's sake have some mercy we run with just the clothes that we were now here in
