include we are running for you we are all waiting for you for now the lebanese are standing together in a rare show of unity but there is no indication of when how do you will return and if and when he does there is no guarantee that lebanon's political crisis will be resolved. what seem bizarre who joined the marathon to support cancer patients is optimistic that this time around the crisis can be contained. on their own feeling as i see things in a positive light unlike in the past the lebanese people are thinking about their own interests in the interests of the country i'd love to see as the others are less optimistic because lebanon's political parties tend to answer to their regional patrons we don't want other countries to interfere and i were. on we want only the lebanese army to have their arms. support and protect this country a clear reference to hezbollah's armed wing an issue that cuts at the heart of
7:05 pm

7:06 pm
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 hours earlier he spoke off camera with reporters and said something different following brief discussions with the blood of me at hooton at the apec summit in downing he said he believes the russian president didn't meddle in the election comments were criticized by some in the united states government intelligence agencies have concluded that there was russian interference in the campaign in his meeting with the vietnamese president in hanoi trump said he believes a strong relationship with russia can help fix the world's problems we have to get to work to solve syria to solve north korea to solve ukraine itself terrorism it's now time to get back to healing a world that is shattered and broken those are very important thing donald trump
7:07 pm
back some self as a deal maker someone who can make things happen and while much of this trip was about trade and business he also offered to help keep the peace between vietnam and china vietnam and china are in a long running territorial dispute in the south china sea along with other neighboring countries donald trump told his vietnamese counterpart. that he could help make things better while also touting u.s. weapons contracts. you know. well you know it's going to go. through very we're. doing business. donald trump says he's not interested in multilateral trade deals china's president xi jinping who's also in vietnam's capital says he's not interested in multilateral talks on the south china sea when hey al jazeera hanoi.
7:08 pm
in long term percent time to respond to north korea's foreign ministry after it called them old tom tempted to it if they complained he would never call kim jong un shorts and in fact he added that he tries hard to be the north korean leader's friend and that someday it might happen land gallagher joins us live from washington d.c. hi andy so this war of words is getting pretty personal isn't it between trump and north korea any cause for concern in the u.s. well i think these kind of schoolyard taunts might be funny if you didn't consider that both these leaders had an arsenal of nuclear weapons at their fingertips i think this is cause for concern certainly for trump's critics here but remember this is an ongoing kind of relationship where these both these leaders towards each other continuously remember when rex tillerson the u.s. secretary of state was in korea and talked about opening channels to north korea
7:09 pm
president trump tweeted you're wasting your time undermining essentially his secretary of state so this is hardly diplomacy one zero one this is frankly pretty childish on both leaders part it certainly isn't getting either nation closer to solving the problems in the very serious problems that both of them face so in short i think it is something that is quite worrisome when you think that this situation between north korea and the rest of the world basically needs to be handled diplomatically and see one of these mixed messages then from trump on russian interference in the u.s. election how are they are being interpreted stateside. our i mean a great deal of confusion really julie when you think twenty four hours ago president trump was saying that he believes vladimir putin did not interfere in the u.s. elections which was counter to everything the intelligence community here is saying in fact the head of the cia mike pompei o issued a statement shortly after president trump said that saying no this is what we found
7:10 pm
and we stand by this then you fast forward to twenty four hours later a president trump is actually saying i stand with my intelligence community so extremely mixed messages you've got people like arizona senator mccain saying that the president trump is siding with a former k.g.b. colonel over his own intelligence community and he certainly isn't putting america first so basically don't trump is giving lots of fodder to his enemies and his critics here remember the background to all this is an ongoing investigation into possible collusion between the trump campaign and russia so really didn't do himself any good backing up like amir putin over his own intelligence community but he seems to be determined to get a good relationship going with russia and certainly seems to be someone who admires vitamin a pollutant and a gallagher there live from washington d.c. andy thanks. the syrian province of aleppo is again under heavy bombardment by government warplanes targeting rebel fighters the air raids have forced thousands of civilians to flee the area and set up makeshift camps in the countryside

from a similar trip to the u.a.e. well it's visit comes against the backdrop of the gulf crisis where saudi arabia the u.a.e. bahrain and egypt have cut diplomatic ties with concept to hashem albar in doha is the king offering to mediate then hashem well they're not saying. hoping to of mediation is the start of the gulf dispute that moroccans issued a statement saying that they will stay neutral in the crisis but whether they were willing to step in by the different parties to negotiate a settlement they also said we would like to have all the parties in the dispute. resolve the crisis in the spirit of mutual understanding and also none interference in turn. but this is quite an important thing for morocco we do
7:18 pm
understand that. meet with senior officials in the united arab emirates and here now in parts are definitely their quizes is going to be topping the edge and agenda and walkers will definitely would like to step in this time and try to ask all the parties to set aside their differences and negotiate a settlement what do you think the king of morocco might be able to achieve given that the others some of the others have failed so far. well judy the king of morocco has very strong ties with the royal families in this part of the world so he would like to tap into that historic relationship to try to ask all the parties to set aside their differences and move forward this is number one number two. the u.a.e. saudi arabia considered a crucial ally they have. investments worth of billions of dollars in iraq or the
7:19 pm
also been committing billions of dollars in aid to iraq over the last few years and the world would like to see this differences. come to an end this explains why the brokers are not taking sides in this particular crisis while they do understand that the americans tried in the past but failed to bring all the parties to a compromise and that kuwaitis still trying to solve this problem what we're going to offer is basically this we can tell the countries listen we've been very important crucial was in the saudi led coalition in yemen in the past. initiatives in the major. world has seen in the past and therefore we would like you to come together and listen to what we have to offer you with the hope of solving this crisis and i think this is what the message of the king of morocco today in his meeting with the emir of qatar which is basically can you give us an opportunity to try to mend fences between the different parties of. their life
