let's go back to one of our top stories that devastating earthquake in iran it's being in iran can he is in the iraqi capital baghdad because this happened quite close to the border there and what i just wonder what are you hearing about the rescue efforts what's happening at the scene. where they're continuing in the iranian revolutionary guard corps is in charge of all of that and they're also working with local aid agencies such as the iranian red crescent they're getting in a lot of the field hospital some four field hospitals of already been set up some twenty helicopters are flying around the area in coordination with those rescue and recovery efforts and they've got heavy equipment and so they going in to try and find people that may well be still trapped under the rubble now president hassan rouhani has visited the area he landed in the province of carmen just a few hours ago he'll be visiting some of the most affected areas and this just goes to show you how seriously the iranians are taking this now this is one of the
most seismically active regions in the world iranians are very used to dealing with quakes they've had a long history of dealing with quakes but a visit of this level goes to show you how seriously they're taking this particular one now what president rouhani has said is that he will every help that's needed to try to get everything back to normal they're trying to get everything online as quick as possible that includes the gas plant that was shut down for safety reasons and that's quite important because it's canary that gets very very cold and gas clearly is needed for cooking and heating and he's also been called by various world leaders including including bloody putin so he is this visit to the iranians is actually goes to show you how seriously the iranians are taking on their side of the border and yes the knock on effect that this is had to on iraq. well. what we're hearing from. many in the kurdish region. where the epicenter was
is that several. felt in the area and then late on monday night there was another quake some four point seven magnitude we don't know what kind of damage that caused if any but it is a real concern for the iraqi authorities now there's also concern because. most affected by this earthquake a number of projects in a big down there so they're worried about damage to the dam also there's a lot of landslides cutting off roads so actually doing the assessments to see what kind of damage has taken place difficult now what we're hearing is iraq has been spared the high death toll that we've seen in iran some eight people have died four of those. but a lot of people have been displaced don't have an accurate figure on how many people have been displaced we're waiting for that. thank you. russian government. as

produce. released on the myanmar commander in chief's facebook page late on monday the investigation an internal investigation carried out by the military here on its actions in the rakhine state over the last couple of months has exonerated itself saying that those who carried out this operation this anti-terrorist operation as they coined it in the western rakhine state say that they had of themselves within the rules of engagement now this is was met by human rights activists around the world as a white washing of what took place over the last several months in rakhine state that sent over six hundred thousand range into neighboring bangladesh now it's interesting that they say you know detailed that they didn't carry out any killings murders of innocent civilians no rapes and no torching of villages again this goes directly against what i witness is have been saying in neighboring bangladesh those who have fled now it'll be on wednesday rex tillerson the u.s. secretary of state will be visiting here in april or the capital will be meeting
with top military officials rex tillerson already met on the sidelines of the on down in the philippines with on song suchi the civilian leader of this nation rex tillotson tomorrow on wednesday with meeting with the military leaders will be interesting to hear what comes out of that if anything we really haven't heard any schedule we haven't been notified of any public statements to come out of those meetings canadian prime minister just into the man must lead to and sons who cheat at the asean summit he said he highlighted concerns about the treatment of the minority in light of events in myanmar is routine state of named a special envoy to the region i've asked him to engage in diplomatic efforts and identify ways in which canada can support the response to the situation in the place of the muslim minority. canada will continue to support us and humanitarian political efforts to find a sustainable and just solution to the ongoing crisis and we will also continue to work with the governments of myanmar and bangladesh to allow for the safe return of
displaced peoples during my excellent discussions with the state councilor we discussed the importance of the recommendations put forth in the final report of the advisory commission on the rakhine state which will help chart the path forward towards a peaceful resolution of the conflict and we discussed how canada can help achieve this goal today as he also talked about human rights for the philippine president rodrigo detector and that was something u.s. president donald trump failed to do
and it led to angry scenes in manila protesters called for trump to go home after he failed to condemn the ted says brutal war on drugs the crowds burned a giant u.s. flag. and twelve day trip to asia has been his longest foreign try yet it was aimed at getting support from allies and pressuring north korea to give up its nuclear program his committee how could reports. he promised to speak frankly to the chinese reassure japan over is north korean fears and deliver
a strong message on trade in the end president donald trump's messages were muddled at best. on his trip to tokyo trump checked all the right boxes on security in north korea visiting with families of people abducted by the regime but will alain japan's fears about a north korean attack he later insulted kim jong un personally in a tweet even suggesting in the same tweet
he may someday want to meet the north korean leader visiting china the president took no questions from the press at beijing's request something they always ask of u.s. presidents but are not always granted and well he talked tough on chinese trade it was this remark that got the most attention but after all. who can blame a country for being able to take advantage of another country. for the benefit of
its citizens i give china great credit. indeed many analysts believe china not the united states emerged as an even bigger power following the trip will trump criticized asian trade practices she praised open markets but he's got a lot of cash that he's throwing around asia and so a lot of countries they are wary but they also are beneficiaries of that comes another problem many presidents in the past have used foreign travel to downplay domestic trouble trump did the opposite he failed to press the issue again of russian meddling in the twenty sixteen u.s. election when meeting with russian president vladimir putin every time he sees me he says i didn't do that and i believe i really believe that when he tells me that he means it that prompted widespread criticism forcing trump to clarify his remarks
during a press conference i believe that he feels that he and russia did not meddle in the election as to whether i believe it or not i'm with our agencies in the philippines the trumpet ministrations said it raised the issue of president rod rico two territories human rights abuses but that claim was later denied by two terror taste spokesman still donald trump is promising a major policy announcement on trade on wednesday a potential chance to correct what many believe may have been a missed opportunity abroad kimberly held at al-jazeera washington let's go back to the us here meeting where leaders have agreed to start talks on drafting a new guideline for the south china sea with china the philippine foreign ministry says countries will negotiate an affective code of conduct of the long disputed territory but gave no details on when the talks will begin for more than a decade leaders of the ten member bloc of struggle to reach a deal with china which claims most of the strategic waterway. chinese president xi

russia were meeting in sochi discussing the very issue of syria and how they're there progress is being made on the ground when it comes to civilian casualties and avoiding them but it is also interesting that the location that these attacks happened is very close to return troops are placed as well if the problem is just about thirty kilometers away from the town of time so it is going to be an interesting a balance for the russian and syrian its history and allies to try and hit positions where they do not drag into the fight the turkish soldiers who are present on the ground in turkey in syria. they are consolidating their support and consolidating their positions in and around the city of it live where there has been an agreement that has been met between turkey russia and iran about a power. sharing agreement and how to bring an end to the fighting in the north after a series. al-jazeera has obtained an audio recording of deposed egyptian president

them to report news and information russia's embassy in the us says the order to register is an attack on press freedom but one analyst says it's not government you know tor ism words have to register as foreign agents. things that don't that aren't even involved in politics so the notion that this is some nefarious law that's attempting to squelch alternative views or to to censor foreign governments and their abilities to reach out to the american public is absurd last month russian president vladimir putin wonder could be a midget response to the u.s. action. in this case we all do it only in kind and quite quickly as soon as we see steps to pressure media there will immediately be an answer. the russian parliament has already begun discussing legislation which would require for
