weapons in syria last month the u.n. investigators found the syrian government was responsible for a chemical weapons attack in april eighty people died many of them children a diplomatic editor james bays reports from new york the tenth veto by russia in the u.n. security council on syria and one that the council's efforts to hold to account those who use chemical weapons in the country. it was a vote that sparked outrage from the u.s. ambassador and she gave this warning that the u.s. may now work outside the u.n. russia has killed the joint investigative mechanism which has overwhelming support of this council the assad regime should be on clear notice the united states does not accept syria's use of chemical weapons as we did in april we will do it again if we must we will defend the international standard against chemical weapons use
10:03 am
there was drama even before the meeting began with ambassador hailey accusing her russian colleague of bad faith by refusing to enter into negotiations for some reason the phones at the russian mission aren't working we have tried to get a call with them and they've been too busy to talk to us this week and when i have tried to call the silly for some reason he's not available moments later she was able to express her displeasure in person a very public exchange of words with the russian ambassador vasoline the benzine or even it seems checking his phones for her calls when the meeting started they even argued over the rules of procedure in the council. i was invoking all thirty five of the of the previous little's of procedure the russian ambassador withdrawing and then reintroducing his own rival resolution this to fail to pass meaning as things stand now the team is investigating the use of chemical weapons
10:04 am
looks set to be disbanded. the use of chemical weapons is now a dangerous reality what is at stake here today is the very future of the international chemical weapons nonproliferation regime. there's been real division and high drama it's been a sad day for syria a bad day for efforts to fight weapons of mass destruction and a day on which the u.n. security council has really harmed its own standing as the security council meeting broke up some members were still trying to create a new compromise resolution to keep the chemical weapons mechanism going on a temporary basis there could be another vote on friday but it will now be very difficult to bridge the deep divisions that have been laid bare james by al-jazeera at the united nations. on a binge of a that here is in gas and top on the turkey syria border but first let's go to our correspondent roy chalons in moscow rory
10:05 am
a lot of condemnation of this feat or how is the russian government likely to view this. we'll join as of yet so far this morning there has been no high level response from moscow but i think there are going to be mixed feelings here on the one hand they will be disappointed that it is obvious yet again that although they can get some sort of agreements when they deal one on one with donald trump when they are faced with dealing with the broader u.s. administration or the u.s. in the united nations then it's the same old divisions but they will be very happy that they have managed to kill this investigation because they have hated it from the start right from the get go when it began working russia started questioning the validity of the evidence that it was gathering and questioning its method of methodology use and then when the united states in october tried to
10:06 am
get the mandate extended for the first time russia said no let's wait let's see what this report says first well that report when it came out a week ago was slammed by russia as being politically flawed and scientifically flawed as well russia's behavior here i think fits in with the general pattern that we've seen throughout this conflict which is basically to deny and discredit it's when they're accused of causing civilian kept civilian casualties in their air campaign to prop up the government in damascus they deny that they have done and discredit those like the white helmets who say they have and here we've seen that they are denying their allies in damascus are responsible for one of the worst atrocities of the of the war here and they're discrediting the internationally mandated investigative body that says other otherwise. thanks for that roy let's go to sana binge of aid he's near the turkey syria border and i'm
10:07 am
just wondering how this development is likely to be viewed by the syrians. well jeanne we've been speaking to them since yesterday even before the meeting began and there was pessimism for the syrians that we spoke to they don't think that the united nations has been able to do anything in the last six years of this conflict and even if this resolution passed they didn't see how the assad regime would be held accountable yes there have been findings in the past the joint investigative mechanism not just from the assad regime responsible for the attacks in april but they've also found that the regime used chlorine gas attacks between two thousand and fourteen and fifteen and it is this sit with this goes on is business as usual the syrians are angry they're pessimistic they have been pessimistic and opposition leaders have been saying that how can the world let this happen there have been these so-called lines in the sand that were drawn by the previous u.s. administration saying that would be
10:08 am
a red line if chemical weapons have been are used on syrian civilians but time and again they have and they have been found to have been using this but yet again they have been wrong replications on the syrian government source areas that we've been speaking to say that in syria there is a saying that you commit a crime when you know there will be no punishment and that seems to be happening in the world arena they are disappointed and they're angry at the sama thank you. zimbabwe's military says it is working with president robert mugabe on a way forward and will announce an outcome soon mcgarvie is confined to his home after the army seize control on a wednesday delegation from south africa's been in the zimbabwean capital harare trying to reach a deal on his future is in harare and i'm just wondering if there's any updates after the talks ended. well the state news bulletin the news bulletins have been saying that the army will update people when necessary and this
10:09 am
is the headline in today's newspaper about the meeting that happened yesterday look at that picture there you have president mugabe and the army general chewing or they are shaking hands they're smiling it seems like everything seems to be going well and it's confusing to zimbabweans because they're wondering how long is this going to take some analysts and i are speculating perhaps the army because they keep saying this is not a coup they want to make sure that this transitional process is seen to be democratic remember that it's important that most countries want except military takeover in any way in the world so the army is being very careful about managing this most people understand or expect or as opposed realize most of us realize that mugabe is on his way out the question is the timing when is it going to happen some analysts are saying that it could be at the december conference when the party
10:10 am
will vote whether he steps down as leader of the party and then ultimately as prison the state ok any idea what's going to happen today while there's a graduation ceremony expected today university graduation ceremony and it's tradition president will go away normally attends these things he individually congratulates every single graduate so the key thing now people are waiting and watching to see is if you're going to be at that ceremony if he appears and makes an appearance or makes a speech then people will wonder what exactly is going on is he staying is he going if he doesn't show up then of course it could be an indication of what his future may be so all eyes are on that graduation ceremony in harare was expected to happen in a few hours time thank you. former cambodian opposition leader sam rainsy has called on the international community to cut ties with prime minister hun sen

the supreme court dissolved the main opposition party on thursday and banned more than one hundred members from politics for five years and gives one sense party a clear run in next year's election. is the return in a one party system which is common in. a regime which is so contrary to the one nine hundred ninety one paris peace accords on cambodia. that clearly state that the cambodia must follow a liberal democratic lura least the system so by killing democracy in cambodia. will. provoke. the international community besides the come border and people probably pride has more from plan pen. the death of democracy that's what it says on the front page of

the phnom penh post but it's the last major english language paper on the stands after the closure of a fellow publication the cambodia daily a couple of months ago all part of a general rollback of civil society that it's claimed has been taking place here in recent times it's also included according to rights groups curbs on the activities of some foreign n.g.o.s at the last election three million people went out and voted for the opposition c n n r p but you do well not to admit you were one of them under the current political climate. did you support the syrian r.p. . thank you. for your oh i don't know about that. will like how did you meet them and we just want to have a good living and the country and to develop. the c n r p leadership has appealed to the international community to intervene but while there has been condemnation
10:13 am
from abroad it's a very different international community that saved cambodia from civil war twenty five years ago and set it on the path of democracy many would argue the united states is not the international player it used to be and the investment from china that is changing the skyline of phnom penh tells you it's the chinese that are now the biggest influence here and beijing certainly likes the way prime minister hun sen he's doing things with his emphasis on national security and stability virtues that it approves of the country it calls rather cambodia still ahead on al-jazeera . and australian youth detention centers ordered to close after a shocking revelations of abuse. as we look at how the sons helping this community in the poor cope with a water shortage. hello
