as the crisis in lebanon deepens the french president makes a surprise visit to saudi arabia the talks with the crown prince. hello welcome to al-jazeera live from doha i'm nothing that is also coming out. we are not going to let the united states speak a kid advantage of any more. i am always going to put america first. tough talk from the u.s. president to apec leaders meeting in vietnam. and what's all the fuss about take a look at the living conditions of refugees abandoned by australia and why their health is at risk. lead to emails from the u.a.e. ambassador to washington allegedly show a plan to destabilize katter's economy. but
first a saudi arabia kuwait time bahrain are urging their citizens to leave lebanon immediately while the u.a.e. has placed a travel ban on the country now all of this is the latest in escalating tensions between saudi arabia and iran that's fueling a political crisis in lebanon the french president emanuel mccraw meanwhile has made a surprise visit to riyadh to have talks with the saudi crown prince mohammed bin sound man now president macro confirmed that he's actually had contact with lebanon's prime minister saad hariri who is also in the saudi capital the president said he'd emphasize the importance of stability in lebanon. this is a comment on the decision of lebanon's prime minister saad hariri resigning but it was in our common interests to guarantee the stability and security of lebanon and
therefore i hope lebanon remains a strong state with strong institutions and i hope it will have a new government as soon as possible and engage in a new election process. well saad hariri is political party the freedom movement is demanding that he go back to beirut immediately the lebanese president michel olmert said they haven't heard from him since saturday that of course is when he resigned in a broadcast from riyadh saying that he feared for his life well it's been six days now since that resignation and fears are growing that mr hariri is actually being held in riyadh against his will. then the holder is our correspondent live in the lebanese capital beirut and then the first of all some words of encouragement if you like coming from the french foreign minister in that he's heard something more about the situation regarding mr hariri in riyadh.
yes we know that the french president made an unscheduled visit to riyadh to hold talks with the saudi king we also know that lebanon asked france for assistance to find out about the wellbeing and the whereabouts of the prime minister saad and according to the french foreign minister in his words as far as we know how did he is not under house arrest and that there are no constraints on his movements we still do not know for sure whether or not the foreign minister or the french president met a saddle so yes maybe encouraging words but in lebanon and the feeling is that something is wrong sources close to the president believe to say told us that the president believes he is under house arrest his own political party is demanding that how do the immediately returns home they stopped short of saying that how did he is being held against his will but they are suggesting and implying that so the feeling in lebanon is that something is wrong that the president is going to be
holding talks with the ambassadors of the five permanent members of the u.n. security council today as well as arab ambassadors to discuss this issue further meanwhile we have saudi arabia kuwait bahrain and indeed the u.a.e. restricting travel of their citizens to lebanon many are being told to leave the country immediately in u.a.e. placing a travel ban on lebanon opting upping the tension considerably i would have imagined . yes undoubtedly marty and it will cause even more tension because more instability it will be a blow to the economy it will be a blow to tourism but this is not the first time gulf countries actually. impose either a travel ban or told their citizens to leave lebanon has long been a battleground for the saudi iranian rivalry but what this statement the statement shows that saudi arabia is really bent on pushing this political crisis and escalating this political crisis even further by you know how do these resignation
was a saudi move against hezbollah and by extension of course iran and ally of hezbollah so what is next this is the question people here are asking what sort of pressure will saudi arabia exert on the on lebanon and on the lebanese economic pressure financial pressure tens of thousands of lebanese work in the gulf are they going to be sent home are they going to be allowed to send money back to their families many questions are being asked here but the feeling is that saudi arabia is going to try to push it's really bringing the battlefield to lebanon this lebanon becoming really a center stage of this rivalry and watch saudi arabia wombs is the removal of hezbollah both in terms of its political influence and of kools its military wing being reined in what is hezbollah saying. well yes like you mentioned the political and the armed wing political of course has been as a member of government a member of parliament its armed wing is really stronger than the national army now we've heard from the secretary general of hezbollah a few days ago hassan nasrallah he was
a very calm he called for calm he called for unity and he said hezbollah is going to avoid political escalation for the time being but the secretary general is going to be making a speech later today in a few hours from now we still do not know if he is going to escalate the situation even further with hezbollah has been a very defiant they said that you know what saudi arabia is trying to do israel and the united states has tried to do for for years now and they failed we have to know what saudi arabia want they want hezbollah to disarm there are u.n. resolutions to that effect and they want hezbollah for example to withdraw its fighters from syria but hezbollah has always been defiant and said that these arms are necessary to protect lebanon and refusing to withdraw from syria. all right for now zain asher thank you very much. now president trump has warned of unfair global trade policies at the apec summit in vietnam and a meeting he told leaders of he won't let the u.s. be i quote taken advantage of mr trump says he won't tolerate unfair trade deals
but insists that he still wants strong relationships with apec countries what. we have been friends partners and allies in the indo-pacific for a long long time and we will be friends partners and allies for a long time to come i am here to offer a renewed partnership with america to work together to strengthen the bonds of friendship and commerce between all of the nations of the indo-pacific and together to promote our prosperity and security at the core of this partnership we seek robust trade relationships rooted in the principles of fairness and reciprocity well despite mr trump's tough talk on trade the chinese president xi jinping said asia pacific leaders must work to improve
a multilateral trading system to the moja so you offer any we should build an open asia pacific economy and promote trade and investment liberalization facilitation we should make economic globalization more open inclusive and balanced so that it can benefit different countries and people of different social groups we should support the multilateral trading regime and practice open regionalism to allow developing members to benefit more from international trade and investment. so the chinese president xi they're talking wayne hay is our correspondent who's there at the apec summit in down and vietnam and wayne president xi of course is perhaps the person or the representative of the country whom donald trump feels is the beneficiary if you like of this unfair trading system. yes absolutely huge and
being clearly in that speech trying to paint himself and paint china as being the leaders when it comes to globalization when it comes to open trade when it comes to multilateral trade deals and that is in stark contrast to what we have seen over the past year including at the same big summit in his speech just an hour or so ago from the u.s. president donald trump who has said again in that speech that he wants trade deals with the asia pacific nations represented here at apec but he wants bilateral deals he doesn't want any more of the big deals that he says have been unfair have not been good for the united states or good for its workers good for its people and then we had speaking straight after that speech and talking about openness and it was interesting in the donald trump's speech as well that he really did go quite tough on things like currency manipulation and things like that which were clearly
directed at china but he didn't mention china itself he did talk about trade deficits and things like that but then repeated his line from his bilateral meetings in beijing over the last couple of days that he didn't blame the countries in the asia pacific region for taking advantage of the united states but he blamed previous governments in the u.s. for not signing better trade deals but nonetheless when the two leaders of the two biggest economies in the world seemed to be diametrically opposed in terms of their their vision of the way forward for global trade. yes and we should remind everyone that the united states was until donald trump assumed the presidency part of the transpacific partnership trade deal which his predecessor barack obama said would set the gold standard when it comes to trade deals now one of his first orders when he assumed the presidency donald trump that is was to pull the u.s. out of the t p p and it has been in doubt ever since that but the remaining eleven
countries who are all also members of apec of vowing to push on with that deal china is not part of t p p although it hasn't ruled out joining it in the future it instead is backing a deal or pact that is hoped will be finalized by the end of the year that originated a really from the association of southeast asian nations and now is being backed strongly by china called the regional comprehensive economic partnership so certainly different approaches there the nations i mentioned those are remaining eleven who are hoping to get some sort of agreement signed while they're here in vietnam it probably will be far from the final agreement but they're hoping to get some sort of pacts done in principle they will be meeting the leaders of those remaining eleven nations later on friday all right wayne thank you for that now the global leaks website has released what have appears to be
a plan by the united arab emirates to try to destabilize katter's economy and jeopardize its hosting of the twenty twenty two football world cup now the plan was found in the hacked e-mails belonging to the amorality ambassador to the united states yes a fellow tired and official reports from washington d.c. . you use colorful and controversial ambassador to the u.s. use of allah tiber has been at the center of leak controversies in the past in recent months it was claimed the u.a.e. paid influential think tanks to back their worldview in washington according to a series of leaked emails now it's alleged an elaborate overly ambitious plan to wage financial an economic war in qatar through bond and debt manipulation has reportedly been found on his computer according to the website the intercept they would then take these these bonds according to the plan and swap them back and forth among parties who from the outside look like they're independent but are actually the same people as like me and you're trading
a bond back and forth and that creates an illusion of volatility and with people aware that there is this political crisis going on then they plan as they see this enhanced volatility and traders start to panic and say oh my god something must be going on here we need to sell our own our own can tare debt which drives the price down further the outline for the plan was allegedly drawn up by the private bank havilland although it's based in luxembourg it's owned by a british banking family with close ties to the u.a.e. the ultimate goal create a crisis which would force the qataris to step in to support their currency draining the country's cash reserves through these leaks the narrative in washington has changed from what was considered privately to be. a response of qatari foreign policy to now a manufactured crisis by the other party to the conflict the u.a.e. and saudi arabia lead a group of mainly gulf nations which have imposed
a partial blockade and cut off diplomatic relations to qatar international efforts to broker a settlement have come to nothing the scheme to interfere with the debt and bond market was always unlikely to succeed there are just too many variables but now it's been made public the financial markets will be watching more closely for any attempt at manipulation alan fischer washington. we got a lot more to come here it. was. space in the supreme court orders the really film bale of the castle and speakers. and we look at the ongoing struggle of a group of hong kong villages. and hungry property developers. through trying to rape. victims

president bashar al assad has only been able to make gains with military assistance from russia and iran. units from syrian forces in cooperation with allies liberated the city of albert in the suburb of terrorism the last i saw stronghold in the eastern region this is a strategic achievement is also a starting point for the elimination of the remaining terrorist organizations in all the different times throughout the country. i see videos and statements earlier denied the advances and reported fierce fighting but the stronghold its propaganda used to new fighters with is gone. reports from the contested there are problems suggest few pockets of isis fighters remain on either side of the iraqi syrian border the fighting has destroyed many eyes and head cities and the real challenge will be to rehabilitate people we still do not have access to city as u.n. . the main reason is that the place is fetch with unexploded.
bombs explosives. the fight against isis in the open centers may be over but the conflict in syria is still continuing these are syrian democratic forces or as the f. backed by u.s. soldiers and support they're also making gains in that there are problems on the eastern side of the euphrates river the defeat of isis removes the common enemy and serious complex war president bashar al assad's government has promised that it will take back all terror free that it once lost and that puts its iran and russia back fighters in militias on a confrontational par with u.s. and saudi backed fighters from a job with others here are young. australians immigration minister has blamed the refugees who are refusing to leave the closed mannus island prison camp for the deteriorating conditions are living in the australian run camp in papua new guinea was closed last month and power water and food supplies were cut off around six

a stray an air force transports cambra has steadfastly refused to accept anyone who tried to reach the country by boat for four years australia has paid papua new guinea to house the asylum seekers but the detention center was ordered shut up in new guinea supreme court ruled that it was unconstitutional to host such a camp but the man fearful of threats from local residents say they would prefer this existence and shelter in towns where they don't feel safe and aid workers have little faith in the military and police ability to protect them my fear is in the six hundred. if you have to look at. my eyes. i will go in and. force and no hope is force and. we. know this is a problem aid workers believe the security forces plan to move the refugees out of

hong kong which of course is renowned for its aggressive real estate market with big developers buying up government land at a record rate but one of the city's last indigenous communities is standing up to them to try to save its heritage and the sarah caught propose that turning to the public for help perched on the hillside in the shadows of the surrounding high rise is park village it was home to the city's first dairy that closed more than thirty years ago but around two thousand eight hundred people still live here in one of the island's last indigenous communities in. this village means a lot to me i was born here and i've been living here for more than seventy years i don't plan to move elsewhere so king forms family of fourth generation residents and proud of the villages history stretching back more than four hundred is the local population lived around the dairy and after world war two it became home to
a flood of refugees from mainland china but it central location on hong kong island has made it a target with developers came to demolish the size. there's always been talks every two or three years about knocking down the village we don't know what will happen after demolition or when it will take place what we call to live in anxiety. despite decades of campaigns locals have filed to convince the hong kong government to preserve the village so now they're turning to the public for help this is the first open day tickets with fifty dollars each and the tour was sold out with visitors given an insight into the historical significance of village life . i hope to see this place preserved because village life is what the villages love the most as it's a big opposite to living in hong kong island and that you can find this not too far away from a place it's very beautiful there are plans to restore and preserve parts of the
