and can only have a negative effect i think that when we're dealing with arms that no personal financial dealings should have anything to do the decision and really not even the finances of the country i think selling arms should have to deal solely with our national security not jobs not money nothing and i really think that the war in yemen that we have no vital national security interest and not only that i think our involvement in this terrible war is one of the things that engendered more terrorism as more people die from starvation as people pick up bomb fragments went to school buses killed and on the bomb fragment it says made in america it creates more terrorism so i think it's actually a risk to our national security to be involved with the saudis and we should not be aiding and abetting their bombing of civilian areas after weeks of violence and to government protests the french president is due to address the nation on monday when we will also meet unions and protest groups these so-called yellow vests demonstrations were initially over fuel tax hikes but now they've become an anti

government mass movement calling from a crawl to resign now the french foreign minister has told the u.s. president to stay out of french politics have to donald trump blame the violent protests on pot piracy climate agreement. i say this to donald trump and the french president said it to we do not take domestic american politics into account leave our nation be. his doublet came from paris all the fallout from those protests. with all of the evidence of violence in paris cleared up now the question many people in france opposing is what can president do to show that he is addressing the concerns of the yellow vest protesters but also of wider society question for him is is there a concession that is the right answer that will placate people here because the violence the evidence of violence is gone but the mix the political mess certainly lingers on that point on monday at the summer in s n l the building behind me the
11:02 am
french parliament organized political opposition to mr merkel will be manifest in the form of a motion of no confidence in his government being put to the some innocent by the opposition by the left wing opposition there's little chance that will get passed when the vote is held on wednesday because of the absolute majority of mr mccall's government of his party that i can recall march that the republic on the move the problem for him is that the newspaper headlines this weekend have been calling her publique of the republic in flames he has to deal with that but his opinion poll ratings are very low at twenty four percent so for him when he speaks to the nation when he speaks to the unions this week he has to address the concerns that have been expressed not just on the streets but also in wider society plenty more ahead here on the al-jazeera news hour including can geo engineering help stop the planet from overheating we'll have more special coverage of the global climate summit we
11:03 am
speak to the commander of ukraine's navy has twenty four crew members are still detained by russia and heads roll out of ghana son's football federation after allegations of physical and sexual abuse those details in sport with peter later. no way has rejected allegations that it breached u.s. sanctions against iran the chinese telecom giant says it communicated with u.s. government agencies on a daily basis to obtain guidance it follows the arrest of one of its top executives name one show in canada on washington's request the detention and extradition process of opened yet another rift between the world's top two economies who are already engaged in a trade war well jim brown has more for us from beijing emin adrian what should we read into china's actions over the weekend the fact that the foreign ministry
11:04 am
summoned the ambassadors of both canada and the united states. well that in itself so i don't think is an exceptional you would expect in these circumstances the ambassadors of canada and the united states to be summoned to the foreign ministry that had been anticipated but we haven't really heard anything from china's leaders on that front of the response so far has been quite muted i think china is leading it leaving it to its sort of attack dogs in state controlled media to to really do all the talking and we've seen some of that in the global times newspaper that's the nationalistic leaning newspaper here in beijing they have called the arrest and detention of mung a an act of war and i think you know the language is fast going to turn from you know purple to crimson in the days weeks or months ahead if she remains incarcerated so yes a lot of chatter also in social media and last week
11:05 am
a lot of the posts that we were seeing were very much in favor of mom criticizing the decision to to hold a but now we're seeing it start to swing the other way a lot of people are surprised to learn for instance that she apparently has seven passports for passports issued by the mainland here in china and three issued in hong kong also questions over the enormity of her wealth the fact she has not one but two luxury properties in vancouver that aspect could in fact help her case according to her lawyers at the bail hearing on monday that's two to happen in buying cooper's main hi kai court on monday her lawyers are going to push for her to be released on bail insisting that she has no you know flight risk and they also say that she's suffering from from hypertension which is another reason why they want her to be released also there have been reports here in china that she was
11:06 am
hanker after when she was moved from the holding center to the court where her extradition hearing was held not just on friday but. also a few days before that that's also stirred a lot of you know a motion online so yes online in the media the the tone is certainly very hostile but the response so far from the government has been restrained there could be a reason for that so perhaps china's government wants to ensure this case doesn't torpedo their on going negotiations between beijing and washington to try to settle their very many trade differences as beijing seems to portray aiming as the victim here there is this train of thought is there not in beijing that the actual whole case is politically motivated and that causes as you say a whole array of problems especially with these ongoing trade talks when there is also a trade war going on at the moment yeah that's absolutely right the reason why they think this case is politically
11:07 am
motivated is because of what her way is this is a company that is at the center of president xi jinping zambia sions to make china a world leader in technologies of the future and as we know how our way is a world leader in five g. technology and what's been happening in the last few months is suddenly holloway is finding itself locked out of places like new zealand and australia because says china of direct pressure from the united states because the united states is not as far ahead as hard way when it comes to this technology and there's also the continuing threat that holway has been you know making some of its advances based on technology that it's stolen from the united states so this you know dispute between trina china and the united states is not just about tariffs tech is also very much at the heart of it or continue to monitor events with you from beijing certainly adrian in the coming days thank you. now the commander of ukraine's navy says he has no doubt that russia was behind the attack three of his boats accused
11:08 am
ukraine of deliberate provocation but admiral eat whole lot and change his navy attitude with an international maritime law he was speaking to andrew symonds that ukraine's main naval base of the black sea port of addition. this role is a naval force that son of the strain twenty four of his men who set out from adesa port more in a fortnight ago being detained by russia admiral it. says russia has no right to put them on trial. years in prison not this they have to admit that they took prisoners of war not some criminalize involved in contraband or illegal fishing. for in genco dismisses moscow's charge of ukrainian provocation and. no one recognizes that exception of crimea and even if we did cross the
11:09 am
twelve miles only we're not to fight the f.s.b. border service we're passing according to our agreements through the strait of curch we're sure the tactical decisions were not being taken by the commanders of the russian ships. genco goes on to say it was clear when russia sees the ukrainian boats the orders were political a claim denied by russia he says the blocking of the strait was due to the accidental grounding of a tanker but was a deliberate act by russia using tugs these are identical sister boats of two of the vessels that came under attack. a captain shows the area of armor penetrated or one of the boats being held by russia ukraine's navy says the crew was being targeted rather than the boats engines which would have disabled the vessel. will isn't optimistic of a quick end to the crisis who wants nato to commit more support to the region.
11:10 am
we need to keep parity of power it's not about an open confrontation we need containment blacks and the reason need to cool down the fervor the heat of russia's aggression to stop it it's hardly surprising that ukraine is still calling for nato support when you consider how much the size of its navy was diminished when russia annexed crimea in twenty fourteen ukraine lost a lot of vessels and that of the few battleships that remain this is the only frigate. outgunned and outmanned over by russia of this navy has to be defensive its hopes for a quick release of its captured crews have to lie with the offensive mounted by diplomats and political leaders and drew simmons out zero adesa ukraine. has become the latest country to pull out of a un pact aimed at improving global corporation or migration though it's not binding in europe belgians government has been reduced to

a minority after its largest coalition partner pulled out of the issue the agreement is expected to be adopted in morocco on monday as more. these are tough times for migrants and refugees we live in a world where every two seconds someone somewhere is forced to be displaced because of conflict or particular nearly seventy million people worldwide have been forced from their homes millions of refugees half of them under eighteen's in addition it's estimated ten million people are stateless they are denied nationality or access to basic wives two years ago in new york one hundred ninety three countries adopted a declaration for refugees and migrants to protect their wives help them resettle and ensure the chance of getting a job and education now those promises seem to be in disarray especially because of the rise of far right and populist governments the us italy hungary poland and australia have pulled out of the meeting in their save the un declaration is
11:12 am
inconsistent with their policies for the millions stranded on borders and in refugee camps the americas conference offered a glimmer of hope for a better and dignified life but that may not happen anytime soon with some of the world's most powerful leaders more keen on building walls rather than building bridges david man is executive director of the refugee and immigration legal center joins me now via skype from melbourne good to have you with us mr mann on the program to talk about the waters closer to where you are in a moment but first we just talk about the mediterranean it seems to be coming more and more now a no go area. well that's right we've seen increasingly and this is part of a global trend governments seeking to you know built walls or wrecked fences and to effectively block access by say by asylum seekers and migrants
11:13 am
who are in many cases in desperate need of safety and this is a glowing graveled global trend with profoundly concerning consequences and we are seeing generally a pushback from nation states who are appealing to their sort of nationalistic base and they're concerned about immigration this political ramifications do hit lawmakers at home very hard do they not. well that's right but look really the essence here is that that in any era where mike ration including forced migration is one of the great quote challenges. what we need is a new compact we need a new form of international cooperation. dress this major global challenge and that can only come through global solutions and yet what we say is a number of states effectively doing the very opposite and that is seeking to.
11:14 am
effectively not saying to cooperate to withdraw from this great global challenge which requires solidarity countries working together to ensure that migration ysaye that it's regular and that rights are respected but david many countries also many leaders in the west and europe words. argue the fact the to stop migration you need to sort the problems out in the home countries of those individuals who saw angela merkel the german chancellor head to africa this year to say if we can sort the problems out in african nations for example where many of these people are leaving then perhaps the migration wouldn't be so bad it surely has to be a two pronged approach you can't expect europe to be the safe haven for those that are finding difficulty in the african or south asian continent. but things are tremendously complex issues and they are genuinely global challenges to effectively come up with that domestic solution for
11:15 am
a global challenge is only going to undermine international efforts but what is clear here is that the root cause of forced migration do need to be addressed there is no doubt about that any part that does require addressing the problems that they're you know and the challenges at their root seeing it for example in countries from which people are playing where people are experiencing the that the consequences and the effects of a lot of conflict a protracted conflict of war also of mantua environmental issues and challenges and to end poverty amongst many others to address root causes really the causes which prompts you to leave their home countries is fundamental but it can't be just one thing and i think that we need a multifaceted approach and one that also recognizes the global reality and that is that so many people are leaving their own countries they flame for all of the
11:16 am
reasons i just mentioned and many more we can't just pretend that it isn't happening it's happening the question is how to actually ensure that that migration you say that it's regular show and there are past bias for paypal which don't involve them being sent back to david until i can help them develop the product. but until i can happen david at the end of the day politicians let's come closer to where you are in australia are quite adamant in some areas that there's only so much a country a nation states can drew australia heads to the polls in twenty nineteen from where you are at the moment and for our international audience to get a sense of what's going on in your country what is the sense of feeling about immigration and migration and how high on the agenda is it as a political theme as australia heads towards the polls because politicians are making hay on this issue. yes well the whole issue of migration and
11:17 am
asylum have being central political issues for at least two decades have been a major point of political contest and effectively what we have same between the two major parties who by form governments in the last two decades it's really interminable political casting who can have the harsher approach toward people say in asylum in a strat if insecurely by about it and so a lot of the controversy and a lot of that the politics of fear has focused around border protection that is the management of borders and particularly the policies which have sought to block people from seeking asylum bussy in a strata it remains a central issue in australia and what's quite clear is that by political parties major political parties have are in lockstep on the question of a strong border protection that is effectively blocking access for people seeking asylum particularly if i try to get to
11:18 am
a strand of us say. one of the one of the great challenges however is that really the policies have in many respects pained by stone. politics of fear but they've also fundamentally pain about not responsibility sharing but responsibility should king because the stratus policies have been treated very much by domestic political imperatives of the day and really what's happened is that as foreign policies have shared responsibilities by effectively pushing that pushing the challenges in the problems of the neighboring priest particularly in asia without working cooperatively with those countries on a better scheme to ensure that people are able to be traded decently get a fair process and ultimately be protected but we'll see what does happen in the coming weeks and serving in the coming months as we head towards our general election it'll study for the moment david could get your insight thanks very much for your time from meldon. most come here on the al-jazeera news i'm treating
