8:02 pm
a statement saying hariri is living in quote mysterious circumstances and is facing restrictions over his residency and even contact with his family hariri announced a shock resignation during a visit to riyadh last saturday in a move that plunged lebanon into political chaos but is in a how to reports on the streets of the capital people are uniting behind him. an animal sporting event a being to bring people closer together unity is needed this year's beirut marathon comes at a time of increased uncertainty and a political vacuum lebanon's prime minister suddenly announced his resignation from the saudi capital more than a week ago since then there has been concern about saddam how to use well being lebanese leaders believe he was forced to step down. and is detained in saudi arabia saudi leaders say he's free to go but fear for his safety if he returns to lebanon lebanese across the political divide are demanding his return home is not
8:03 pm
tearing the one which is a very very different problem you know. it's like life broken hope he comes back safe. it's not like that whole for that hollywood that what i guess i'm this mother of two that he's going to think is the prime reason for wanting. and yet to come back these are the most recent t.v. pictures of heidi meeting the saudi king in riyadh the airport he has been seen three times in public since his resignation speech but hasn't made any comment people are using the marathon to show solidarity with the heidi the slogans 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 will seem bizarre who joined the marathon to support cancer patients is
8:04 pm
optimistic that this time around the crisis can be contained. on their own feet as i see clings 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 would. want only the lebanese army to have the arms. support and protect this country a clear reference to hezbollah's armed wing an issue that cuts at the heart of lebanon's political divide a divide that has shattered stability and threatened coexistence in a not so distant past that of. beirut. president omar trump says he backs the conclusion of u.s. intelligence agencies that russia did meddle in the twenty sixteen presidential
8:05 pm
election writing on twitter he slammed what he called the full so a pause better ties with moscow times clarification comes after he suggested on saturday that he believes that they may have putin when he said russia didn't interfere with the vote when he reports now from hanoi two things dominated donald trump's visit to vietnam competing with china for influence in asia and offering conflicting messages about russian influence on his election win last year i believe that president putin really feels and i feel 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 hours earlier he spoke off camera with reporters and said something different following brief discussions with vladimir putin at the apec summit in dunning he said he believes the russian president didn't meddle in the election comments were
8:06 pm
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 has shattered and broken those a very important thing donald trump 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.
8:07 pm
well you know it's going to go. through very we're. going to use. 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 wayne hay al-jazeera hanoi . meanwhile trump is flying time to respond to north korea's foreign ministry after it called an old chimp took to twitter to complain he would never call came german short and that he added that he tries hard to be the north korean leader's friend and that someday that might happen lander gallacher and joins us live now from washington d.c. hi and they so this war of words is getting kind of personal. it isn't it
8:08 pm
has been for a while and i think these kind of childish barbs might the entertaining if it wasn't for the fact that these two leaders have their fingertips on fairly large nuclear arsenals diplomacy here isn't something that seems to be in trump's wheel house it's not something he's good at and remember he has basically undermined his own secretary of state before when rex tillerson was in china and was trying to reach out to north korea president trump tweeted out your wasting your time wrecks essentially undermining his own secretary of state who's trying to pursue diplomatic channels so i think once again president trump is giving his critics here in the u.s. lots of fodder to say look this is not a man who is suited to solving these issues despite the fact that he says he actually does want to so i think these kinds of tweets backwards and forwards between these two leaders are pretty much unhelpful and mixed messages to from trumbull on russian interference in the u.s.
8:09 pm
election how are they being interpreted stateside. well this is big news here despite everything else that's going on at the apec summit this is what's being talked about in the u.s. because remember there is still this song going investigation of allegations of collusion between the trunk campaign and russia if you consider that the background then you think about what president trump said what he's backing up blood amir putin's claims that russia didn't interfere in the u.s. elections it's a fairly big news because the intelligence community here has little doubt that russia did in fact interfere with u.s. elections and we've seen things from facebook as well about the russia had paid for and then twenty four hours later president trump's saying i'm standing by my intelligence community so it's a very mixed message you've got people like republican our republican senator from arizona john mccain saying that president trump is clearly not putting america first when he's siding with a former k.g.b.
8:10 pm
colonel against his own intelligence community something he's since flipped around but what you can take from all this is it seems that president trump does want to have some kind of good relationship with russia and certainly seems to be someone who has a great deal of admiration for vladimir putin and gallagher there live from washington d.c. andy thank you now 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 country say some a binge of aid has more now from gaziantep on the border between syria and turkey. the war in syria is far from over. the army and air force of president bashar al assad and his allies continue to attack opposition positions in the southern countryside of aleppo province regime forces are advancing to secure an important supply route or highway that connects damascus to aleppo city. fighters
