hello and welcome to this al-jazeera news hour live from doha in martine denis coming up in the next sixty minutes turkey's foreign minister lashes out at donald trump's response to the matter of democracy saying it means the u.s. president will turn a blind eye to the journalists killing no not so one. suicide attackers target china's consulate in karachi in pakistan three gunmen and two policemen are among those killed. the man known as ram the cutest of war crimes in the central african republic is set to appear before the international criminal court. the u.n. envoy to yemen is in the port city of a dater and his push for peace talks. that
the u.s. is turning a blind eye and europe's not doing enough that stern his foreign minister and western leaders response to the murder of the saudi jenice jamal khashoggi may have lots of a so lou is a accusing them of protecting their own interests instead he specifically called out president trump the turning a blind dyed to the killing by refusing to take action against all involved. now this just hours after president trump made comments again supporting the saudi crown prince mohammed bin sound man who denies he had a role in the. whether he did or whether he did he denies it vehemently his father denies it the king vehemently the cia doesn't say they did it they do point out certain things and pointing out those things you can can pollute that maybe he did or maybe he did but there's no there was a other part of a false reporting because
a lot of you said yesterday that they said he did it well they didn't say that they said he might have done it that's a big difference but they are vehemently denying it. and the man at the center of it all molly bin solomon he's in the united arab emirates his first foreign trip since it is. right let's go live now to istanbul in turkey and our correspondent there mohammed val and mohammed you're outside the saudi consulate in istanbul where of course the murder actually took place it seems very much as though president trance refusal to acknowledge what much of the rest of the world is accepting and that is the role of the crown prince that this is causing a great deal of frustration if not anger in turkey. that's right this has been we have heard the statements today by the turkish foreign minister exactly commenting on this and saying that the u.s.
president has shows in to turn a blind eye to the truth that to the facts that have been accumulated in the evidence that has been built by turkey over the last several weeks pointing the finger to mohammed the same man he did not mention how mr meant by name but he basically an e.t.a. to those positions that turkey have been has been talking about during the last several weeks and now it's like a peak of that anger by to keep with regard to the u.s. position and also not only the u.s. position but also the european position he said that those travel bans that have been announced by some european countries against the the suspects in this med a case are only cosmetic measures they're not going to do much by way of achieving justice for. we have seen also in these statements today that it took two directions one of them is this severe criticism to words western the western styles but also on the other hand when he talked about relations with saudi arabia he said
that the relations are very good not very he said they are good between king said man and president of the one he said that he talked to him twice by by phone and he said that there is no nothing to prevent a meeting between president and crown prince mohammed bin said man on the margins of the g. twenty summit in argentina later this month so it looks like turkey is not willing to go into this bottle. alone with the with saudi arabia it is not willing to escalate diplomatically or politically or even economically with saudi arabia it is looking for an international approach starts in which the world is united in this in this situation against. perpetrators particularly because he he said we should not blame everyone for this murder in saudi arabia so he he is focusing on the side of justice the aspects of justice and the investigation also
he said that there is pressure now on turkey to move this file to the un so that an international inquiry could be conducted mohammad val live in istanbul thank you very much the suicide attackers have tried to storm the chinese consulate in the pakistani city of karachi three gunmen and at least two policemen were killed a separatist group known as the baluchistan liberation army has claimed responsibility that toward gays in the reports. the chinese consulate in karachi is cordoned off while security forces searched the area police say gunmen threw up to ten hand grenades at the compound as they tried unsuccessfully to storm the building they were stopped by security guards before they reached the consulate. two policemen who were on duty had been killed the attackers parked their car away from the consulate they were stopped from entering the building three attackers have been killed. and the separatist group the baluchistan liberation army said the
three gunmen were it's members the groups angry at the same cool china pakistan economic corridor will a forty six billion dollars chinese investment which aims to connect the port of in southern pakistan to northwestern china via roads railways and pipelines the development promises to bring jobs but many people in baluchistan say china is exploiting pakistan's resources pakistani prime minister imran khan says the attack on the consulate was part of a conspiracy against economic cooperation between pakistan and china and the foreign minister also condemned the gunman. one attack a designated his suicide vest killing two policeman but police killed the other two attackers before they could enter the consulate premises we're glad that all the consulate staff of saif the government says chinese consulate staff have been moved to a safe location and that security forces have the area under control however they're
braced for more attacks from people who feel china is transforming the impoverished region but not giving them a fair share of the benefits victoria gates and be there. pakistan's been a close ally of china since the one nine hundred fifty s. is all about is now the largest customer of chinese made weapons beijing has funded more than sixty billion dollars worth of infrastructure projects as part of the china pakistan economic corridor well the development seeks to connect western china with the seaport of garda which is in baluchistan province but since construction began chinese workers have been subjected to a number of attacks we can just tell he's a professor in the school of politics and international relations at cade is as army university he's joining us now via skype from islamabad thank you for talking to us so explain for us if you will then what exactly the people of this particular
