6:05 am
to his country very soon as any other reports now from beirut. this is the first time saud how did he makes public remarks since his resignation announcement more than a week ago from the saudi capital riyadh he sought to dispel reports that he had been detained the well being of lebanon's prime minister and his freedom of movement have been open to question in a live interview he denied he was forced to resign and said he is a free man and. i submitted my resignation i know it's not a normal process for a prime minister but i had to take some security measures to return back safe and sound the circumstances behind his decision to step down united a deeply divided country earlier people used. to show solidarity with. some lebanese may now be convinced that he is not under house arrest others however haven't changed their minds it clearly wasn't comfortable situation here physically look. what he was saying was very.
6:06 am
contradictory to many people in lebanon saying that he's free when i look but if and when how does return it doesn't guarantee that lebanon's latest political crisis will be resolved if i withdraw my resignation as prime minister of lebanon we must respect the distancing of lebanon from the regional conflicts we should pull out from the interventions in the region a few years ago lebanon officially adopted a policy of staying out of regional conflicts particularly from the war in syria hezbollah has been accused of ignoring that policy by sending troops to fight alongside the syrian government the iranian allied group has long resisted demands to withdraw its forces and it is unlikely to heed that demand now. also singled out yemen accusing hezbollah interventions that puts lebanon at risk heidi said he resigned to save lebanon but the political vacuum his resignation created has only
6:07 am
destabilized the country heidi. he is the top certainly politician in lebanon replacing him will not be easy democracy here is about consensus and a candidate has to be accepted by all rival camps for stability to prevail appearance and comments did little to ease the tensions instead he looked more like a pawn in the regional power struggle between iran and saudi arabia said of. beirut and german policy analyst of the arab center washington d.c. now he says the interview raises more questions than answers let's just focus on the political messages he sent obviously he toned down the sickle shift in his rhetoric compared to his resignation a week ago when he was very bellicose against iran and others thought he was very cool so your theory he basically said the reason of the shift will sell the policy was yemen much of the other issues you mentioned before so i think

6:18 am
rob mcbride who's in the capital there in manila i mean what really are these protests about rob. these protesters suddenly flared up in the last hour or so it was being called by a number of different left wing groups protesting against what they say is the imperialism of the united states the united states they regard as a former colonial power here it has to be said that a majority of people in the philippines probably support the u.s. there are traditional ties between the philippines and the united states but what has angered especially some of these groups i think is the position taken by donald trump he comes here to the philippines for a long anticipated bilateral meeting with the philippines president. and he seems to have discarded the usual usual position of the united states of standing up for
6:19 am
human rights regardless of where the president might be visiting in the world they had expected for example a u.s. president in former times to have taken issue with about his controversial drugs campaign which is we know has resulted in thousands of people dying here trump has already said that he will not probably will not bring up the issue with due to it and that angered a number of human rights groups also it's angered i suppose a number of liberal groups back in the united states who see as yet again trying to curry favor trying to get a close position with somebody who is regarded as a foreign strongman the leader of a country who is regarded or presents himself as a strongman so that his seems to be one of the issues here whether anybody here at the venue will actually know that this protest is taking place is debatable it's a few kilometers away from where the summit is being held and there has been
6:20 am
a kind of a lockdown in this part of manila thousands of security people have been deployed to try. to ensure that these protesters don't get anywhere near the leaders as they start the various meetings of this as and summit indeed rob you suggested that there are certain issues that trump will or won't address the agenda of his meeting is interesting because there are issues about what he can court or won't discuss with the relevant heads of state that are there. that's right one of the things that still dominates his agenda and has been throughout his sweep through asia pacific and this is the last stop on this visit to asia is of course north korea and he does find a very receptive audience here among nations as the hand has put out various statements condemning north korea and its missile and nuclear program one of the
6:21 am
most important as he and members of course malaysia had a diplomatic spat with north korea over the assassination of kim jong un's half brother on malaysian soil and interestingly most countries do have diplomatic relink say in one form or another with north korea so there is influence there that they can possibly bring to bear having said that any any kind of pressure on north korea will be tempered by the very strong presence here of china which obviously takes a very different view to how north korea should be treated to the united states and all of this comes at a very interesting time in north korea itself tomorrow marks a very important landmark if you like it will be sixty days since north korea carried out its last missile test and it stoked an awful lot of speculation about just might what be going on in north korea why this gap in its
6:22 am
missile testing is it possibly trying to be conciliatory as trump has been having all of these different sessions. in asia has it maybe laying the groundwork for some types of dialogue but it comes as we know as these exercises involving three aircraft carriers from the united states seventh fleet have begun in the seas between japan and the korean peninsula it's a hell of a moment we'll leave it there rob and continue to monitor this is true situation with you as the day progresses thank you. a senior u.n. official says me and troops are systematically gang raped and tortured drinker women the envoy on sexual violence in conflict has been speaking to some of the six hundred thousand ring of refugees who fled to neighboring bangladesh since august she says she's going to raise the mistreatment of rango with the international criminal court calling rape a weapon of genocide peter sharp has more the imposingly wide river now which separates my ma and bangladesh was the final hurdle for another wave of

increasingly desperate rohingya refugees nearly two hundred people many of them women and children made their way to freedom paddling improvised rickety rafts kept afloat by empty plastic jerry cans scavenged along the way as they fled the country using homemade paddles and sheets of plastic it was a long and slow crossing some just paddled with their hands on the final half mile the rafts were intercepted by bangladesh frontier guards these people are not welcome here and for an hour the guards circled the rafts trying to persuade them to turn back and pushing them up river the refugees ignored them and pushed onto the shoreline. they've been travelling for weeks and with land for a mixture of exhaustion and relief on the faces of those who'd reach safety traumatised by what they'd witnessed during the long march out of my mom for the children still too young to comprehend that they may never return to their homes.
