business update brought to you by chance are they always going places together. this is al-jazeera.
1:01 pm
and on a welcome to the al-jazeera news our life or my headquarters in doha with me and is a product coming up in the next sixty minutes calls grow from lebanese prime minister to fatherhood easy to return home as the french president makes a surprise visit to saudi arabia. we are not going to let the united states be taken advantage of anymore. i am always going to put america first tough talk from u.s. president donald trump to the apec leaders missing in vietnam. protests continue in a strange as new pictures emerged showing the squalid state of a decommissioned refugee camp on man a silent. and m.p. to say most of the new sports news as research is a boston university revealed that form a new england patriots player aaron hernandez suffered at the most severe case of chronic trauma. discovered in a person he's
1:02 pm
a. saudi arabia kuwait and behind urging their citizens to leave lebanon and mediately while the u.a.e. is advising its citizens to comply with an already existing travel ban it is the latest and escalating tensions between saudi arabia and iran that's fueling a political crisis in lebanon french president emmanuel necron made a surprise visit to riyadh to hold talks with crown prince mohamed bin some on confirmed he's had informal contact with the lebanese prime minister solve haiti who's in the saudi capital now but it is political party the future movement is demanding the prime minister return to beirut immediately but says he hasn't heard from her t.v. since saturday when he was on during a broadcast from riyadh saying he feared for his life it's been six days since that resignation and there are now growing fears hades being held against his will for
1:03 pm
the french foreign ministers on a literal and says he doesn't believe he is movement is being restricted. and should ask about whether his life's in danger we simply observe that he's resigned he went to abu dhabi the day president mcbride was passing through we think his friend has made friends and it's important he makes his own choices our only worry is the stability of lebanon and that a political solution can be put in place quickly. we're joined now by our correspondent saying the whole the she's live for us in the bay version unlike the french foreign minister and the the lebanese president know how did his political party believe he is free any more news on his whereabouts. levanon has been holding contacts with western as well as arab diplomats in beirut the president really even holding talks with the saudis sharjah the fair he wants to seek information on the well being on the whereabouts of the resigned prime
1:04 pm
minister saddle how do you like you mentioned the president does believe he is under house arrest the the house speaker the speaker of parliament he believes so as well and like you also mentioned his own political party how to use political party they implied and suggested that how did he is being held against his will demanding that he immediately return to lebanon for the sake of stability to restore stability in this country but even the french foreign minister statements were quite ambiguous saying as far as we know how did he is not under house arrest and that his movements are not constrained but they didn't we don't know if the if the french president actually met had he was there any direct meeting is how did he allow to leave saudi arabia so a lot of questions more than answers and yes suspicions are growing in this country by from the leadership that something is wrong with the prime minister and on the suspicions of the confusion the questions and saying i'm being heightened by the
1:05 pm
fact that gulf countries are urging they citizens to leave lebanon i mean how people they are reacting to this. will undoubtedly statements like that will last heightened tension it will cause instability it will be a blow to the economy to tourism in this country but the lebanese have heard these statements before if you ask anybody does say well there was the travel ban gulf countries have imposed a travel ban on lebanon in the past lebanon has always been entangled in the saudi iranian right. i will be which is playing out across the region but they will also tell you that this is an indication that saudi arabia intends to escalate the situation that it just then this will not just stop with the resignation of how do you deal with this how did his resignation really brought down the government a government that was hezbollah was part of that government so people are expecting further measures they're asking is saudi arabia going to impose economic pressure financial pressure on this country tens of thousands of lebanese work in the gulf they send money back home will they be kicked out of the gulf countries investments
1:06 pm
will stop so this is what people are concerned about the economy here is also struggling and yes there's also concern about some sort of military strike because they believe saudi arabia is working with israel and the united states to not only curb hezbollah but curb its patron iran across the region and one as has been the saying about one of the cena. well in a few hours we're going to hear from the secretary general has on here already spoke a few days ago he really questioned the publicly where is the prime minister and he actually said just that that he believes the prime minister was being held against his will but at the same time he called for calm and he said that they're going to avoid political escalation actually what we're seeing in lebanon today lebanon is a deeply divided country in a deeply divided reaches you have a process saudi camp you have a pro iranian camp but now the word you hear time and time again is unity we need unity there calling for calm in fact in one way or another it has united the
1:07 pm
different factions because in the statement of how do these political party they said that he needs to return to restore the internal balance there is a sectarian power sharing system in this country and getting rid of a prime minister a suddenly leader like a saddle how d.d. will the community here will feel marginalized and that's what people have been telling us so there's a lot of fear that this delicate balance that it could be affected and the sunnies always feeling marginalized feeling that iran is much more stronger. if they lose a prime minister a strong prime minister like. that what is there you're here thank you very much for that for now that song correspondent saying the whole the with all the very latest from lebanon we're going to get more on this now we're joined by sa me now the director of the institute for strategic affairs and he's also joining us live from beirut very good to have you with us on al-jazeera so as we've heard president party believe he is probably under house arrest in saudi arabia why would saudi
1:08 pm
arabia be doing this. i think that their future movement in their statement they ask for their return of mr sergeant hurley before anything else and they did not mention that he is under house arrest while. all the parties that are siding with hezbollah are trying to depict. the problem. and in fact i mean there is no doubt. mr hardee was kind of pushed by the arab states and saudi arabia to take a clear position when it comes to hezbollah. the fact is that this idea that was underlying the deal put in to the constitution void and brought a lebanese a president and the formation of. a cabinet was this idea of neutrality
1:09 pm
that that deal that was reached would allow lebanon to take some distance from what's happening in syria unfortunately during the last year to confirm that this was only on paper and while in concrete terms what we have seen we have seen lebanon pushed more and more to world. access so to say and this i mean and. in the middle of a confrontation we are witnessing between saudi arabia and iran is not tenable anymore for the. saudi. the saudi side and how much how much of this how much of the saudi action and lebanon do you think is about trying to curb hezbollah's influence by destabilizing the national government that
1:10 pm
they are a part of but then there's of course also financial assets a lot of the heavy family's maid and saudi and conference mohammed then some are now wanting to d.d. for them to pay their dues ball financially and also politically. i mean the fact that this happened in the middle of another campaign this. quarter option purge that we've seen and there are some reports. that. could be in part involved in this however. what's worrying it's what will be the next measures because we definitely are in. course and what's worrying what will be next a measure that saudi arabia will take
1:11 pm
a let us here not forget that i mean we are are under economic sanctions and hezbollah in particular is under economic sanction the from there you as a congress that are but actually i think. financial the financial sector which is already which is already in a crisis for their sick here are all lebanon is going through recession and it does not have the capability to withstand i mean additional or more measure is coming from the country from coming from saudi arabia. and now there are possible. talks of possible suspension of flights between riyadh and beirut. lebanon is economy rely a great be on. a workers i mean when he's working in there he says he
1:12 pm
markets editor realize. it's an important lead to him a tense is coming from those countries this is of great importance for that he might mean for economy that is very shaky in the time being and we will of course be watching very closely over the next few days to see what happens mr now. thank you very much for your time on this other joining us live from beirut thank you. we're going to move on to other news now leaders have gathered for the asia pacific economic cooperation summit and vietnam trade as at the top of the agenda but donald trump issue in what appeared to be sharp criticism of china's policies when he has more from don in vietnam. it was inevitable that donald trump's arrival would dominate the apec summit after getting off the plane from a state visit to beijing the united states president went to a meeting of political and business leaders there he went straight on the offensive
1:13 pm
seeming to attack china's trade policies without specifically mentioning china they engaged in product dumping subsidized goods currency manipulation and predatory industrial powers they ignored the rules to gain advantage over those who followed the rules causing enormous distortions in commerce and threatening the foundations of international trade itself trump has vowed to correct some of the trade deficits the united states has built up particularly in asia but the america first policy that he campaigned on ahead of last year's election is seen as protectionist it runs counter to the multilateral globalist approach of most other apec nations including china. president xi jinping spoke soon after trump and painted china as a champion of globalization. openness brings progress while seclusion leaves one
1:14 pm
behind with the ocean pacific economies know this too well from our own development experience we should put in place a regional cooperation framework that ensures consultation among equals with participation and shared benefits that's what it's trying to do with the sixteen nation trade bloc known as the regional comprehensive economic partnership which may be finalized by the end of the year under the previous administration the united states was also hoping to gain some influence in this region through the trans-pacific partnership trade deal but donald trump pulled out of it the remaining eleven members of the pact which doesn't include china are hoping to come to some sort of agreement during a pic members quietly hope the united states will eventually rejoin but under president trump that's unlikely. and wayne is joining us live from denying also what else are we expecting from the summit today wayne. well i think now that those opening remarks really by those two key world leaders
1:15 pm
donald trump and she jinping are out of the way the focus goes on to behind the scenes meeting meetings bilateral meetings also multilateral meetings when you talk about the trans-pacific partnership trade deal which we know those members are trying to get some sort of agreement on while they are here in vietnam at apec with me now to discuss more about this is deborah elms from the asian trade center. first of all those speeches from xi jinping and donald trump what did you make of the the contrasting messages well i think it was particularly interesting i think donald trump it to see them first of all side by side was very interesting donald trump started with a long history lesson mostly about the united states he finished with the state and sort of god bless america and in between it was really a message about the u.s. and about the u.s. says views the u.s. grievances the u.s. complaints about the system compare that to what she did which was basically in my view a very open inclusive discussion about how the region is moving forward it was very
1:16 pm
future oriented it was about how we should be thinking about open sustainable inclusive growth that brings everyone together the contrast was quite striking and quite stark if you talk about a competition between those two in terms of trying to win influence and win friends here among the asia picture pacific nations i would imagine then that the message from xi jinping would have been much more welcome than that from donald trump i think that's true and i think it's a real problem frankly for the u.s. especially for donald trump because this speech was billed as the opportunity for trump to outline the u.s. vision under his leadership for what does it means for the u.s. to be engaged especially economically engaged in the region and at the end of it it wasn't clear exactly what the united states is going to do under him except for again more. our focus on bilateral is come join us in our vision if you want but otherwise it's all about our sovereignty our freedom come with us if you think this vision resonates with you. the trans-pacific partnership we know the united states
1:17 pm
is no longer a member of that but the remaining eleven nations hoping to get something sorted over the next day or so it sounds like that could be in doubt now. deeply depressing news on the c.p.p. they had this agreement all stitched up they had they were in fact having a giant celebration in the room then all of a sudden things started to fall apart and at today's meeting apparently the canadian leader failed to show up entirely which has thrown everything into doubt it's not clear whether we're going to have an agreement tomorrow or whether the eleven will leave here from vietnam with the t p p still hanging in the balance this is extremely depressing we are literally this close to being done with this agreement and it's not clear what exactly is the obstacle keeping the canadians from joining with the other ten partners to get this done thanks very much that said deborah elms from the asian trade center so an interesting development there
1:18 pm
regarding the transpacific partnership trade deal the possibility that it could be in doubt because the canadian prime minister failing to show for that key meeting also on the show joe possibly is a meeting on the sidelines of a pick between donald trump and his russian counterpart vladimir person or when thank you very much for that for now that's when hey joining us live from thank you we have plenty more ahead on the news hour including sink or swim saddam sails ahead with the rebuilding its shipping fleet to turn decades a few west sanctions plus. only ten minutes away by boat from that and these villagers here are drowning because of the affects of global warming on stuff ice and reporting from because in west java. and south africa. and senegal are getting a replay of a world cup qualifier from a year ago. the details and sport. human
