9:02 pm
very warm welcome the news hour the u.s. and france have intervened in lebanon's political crisis calling for stability in the country and saying they backed prime minister saad hariri hariri and iran still is stepping down whilst in riyadh earlier this month claiming interference from iran and its lebanese ally has blocked meanwhile has been as leader has accused aside the arabia of detaining hariri and not allowing him to return home said holder reports the citizens of saudi arabia and its gulf allies visited or living in lebanon are leaving it's not the first time gulf countries tell their citizens it is not safe to stay lebanon has long been in tangled in the saudi iranian power struggle across the region but the latest warning heightened tensions after the resignation of lebanon's prime minister saad howdy but alongside the tensions there are growing signs. of lebanese unity in what many see as saudi interference in their country saturday his resignation was sudden raising concerns about the
9:03 pm
circumstances behind the decision there is also concern about how to ease freedom of movement he may have been seen since he made the announcement in riyadh but the prime minister hasn't made any more statements lebanon's president michel aoun believes how he is under house arrest he told saudi arabia the fear in beirut bihari that the circumstances of the resignation are an acceptable and how d.d. should return immediately. how did his own political party made a similar to mt they didn't just suggest the prime minister is being held against his will but expressed concern that lebanon's suddenly community could be marginalized even further. from this and from charges and disappoint. as controlling their government and controlling their festival on the other hand they are concerned about. how do you.
9:04 pm
so this is why yesterday. to. how do you really should be a priority lebanon is a deeply divided country there is a pro saudi camp led by her which has long accused has been law of imposing iran's agenda here there is a pro iran camp led by hezbollah which has long resisted demands to disarm and to withdraw its troops fighting alongside the syrian government but even has below has added its voice to demands for how to be to return to the belief that the prime minister is being held against his will when i know not. all the lebanese take this as an offense and any offense to the lebanese prime minister as an offense to all the lebanese even if he is our political outbursts are. hezbollah secretary general has an astrolabe was careful to avoid political escalation instead he accused saudi arabia of wanting to impose
9:05 pm
a new leadership in lebanon and start a war he called on the lebanese to avoid provocation and to stay away from the streets the political divide hasn't gone away but for now at least politicians are putting it aside there is a rare consensus for the need to unite at what many describe as dangerous times. beirut. let's go to our state department correspondent passing hi there patty so some strong words then from to listen. very very strong words as far as diplomatic tone and tenor these statements are usually fairly bland this one quite blunt secretary of state rex tillerson saying that all parties within and outside of lebanon need to respect the integrity and independence of not only the government but the armed forces and he specifically talked about the prime minister saying he is respected friend and ally of the united states of sending the message they support him he's actually said if hariri wants to step down he needs to go
9:06 pm
back to lebanon to make it official to do it in his own country then the statement goes on to say that there is no world for foreign forces inside lebanon and even stronger says it should not be used as a proxy war for people outside of lebanon so very clearly sending a message to saudi arabia now the interesting questions going to be does his boss donald trump the u.s. president back him up on this we have seen since president trump took that visit to riyadh for that summit that he has sided with saudi and pretty much all of their moves from the blockade of cutter to saying when he rounded up those princes and those ministers that they basically believed in what he was doing so does that extend to lebanon that it's been the big question we haven't heard directly from the president on that but his secretary of state is sending the message that no it does not and patsy will this be radiating as a reprimand for saudi arabia. i think it is clearly sending
9:07 pm
a message to saudi arabia and we've seen this from the secretary of state speaking to reporters that are traveling with him in asia on his plane he was asked about the a round up of those princes and the ministers and he talked about how these are very powerful well known people and he said he spoke with the saudi foreign minister and that these were not being characterized as arrests he said right now what the he believes is they're just sort of gathering information they're going to make it public and in his words the people who are being targeted will then have an opportunity to in his words make things right so said they'd a message to saudi that they do not want to see any destabilizing action and that has been basically what establishment washington through all administrations have believed they need to see from their critical ally saudi arabia was some sort of stability we've seen a much more aggressive tone though with president trump especially when it comes to tackling iran so the big question is going to be when the president wakes up does
9:08 pm
he basically dispute what his secretary of state has to say we've seen him do that before especially when it comes to the moves of saudi arabia but is secretary of state tillerson as of now sending the u.s. policy that saudi arabia needs to stay out of lebanon that's a cool hand there live from washington d.c. patty thank you. well for more on this story i'm joined now by paul salem he said near vice president of the middle east institute in washington d.c. paul a very warm welcome to the program i guess the big question everybody has here is what's on our earth is going on in saudi arabia is sat there really being held against his will his people say he isn't. well we don't have i guess conclusive evidence one way or another but it does seem from what most of his people in beirut are saying that he seems to be being held against his will the resignation was not something apparently that he was thinking about or intended
9:09 pm
to do he seems to have been forced to do that and is not really been able to communicate with even with his closest advisers the resignation came at the on that very same weekend when this massive purge inside saudi arabia took place and we have to member mr assad how d.d. is also a saudi citizen with large business interests and debts both he is owed by the saudi government and he has court cases in saudi courts on business and labor issues so his resignation or forced resignation might have been part of this dynamic of the internal purge inside saudi arabia and it has repercussions on lebanon but it might have been domestically driven and pull we've got a situation where iran kuwait the train and the u.a.e. are advising sissons to leave lebanon do you think that's creating more fear in tension then perhaps necessary at this stage as you point out where we don't have
9:10 pm
evidence for the real story behind this. it certainly raises the tensions but as year report indicated inside the country this crisis has brought lebanese parties and politicians and communities i would say at least temporarily closer together the evacuation of g.c.c. citizens or some of them this is not the first time that it happens what's more important is what happens next if saudi arabia and some g.c.c. countries choose to economically boycott lebanon as they did with qatar while cut that it could survive that lebanese lebanon's economy probably could not there are tens of thousands of lebanese working in saudi arabia and other gulf countries the lebanese economy is already very precarious and if there were to be economic sanctions or some kind of boycott or expulsion of lebanese working in some of these
9:11 pm
countries that lebanese economy would collapse the national currency might go into a freefall and we would have at least eight economic and political crisis on our hands now if the evacuation is a preview to some security event. that would also be worrisome in its own right puzzling that joining me live from washington d.c. sir thank you. thank you come on this al-jazeera news hour. arjan warning is set for help to end the blockade in yemen as millions of people face starvation. by sudan's shipping industry is still struggling despite the lifting of devastating sanctions. on the washington was a source revenge against the l.a. lakers and the n.b.a. find out how they did with the far right a little later in school. the

9:15 pm
a process that can't be reversed when he has more now from vietnam. often the most memorable event at an apec summit is the leader's photo opportunity at the garland dinner at this year's traditional costume chosen by the host vietnam was fairly low key that was in contrast to the days earlier events that included a speech by u.s. president donald trump he went straight on the offensive 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
9:16 pm
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 behind we 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 the trans-pacific partnership trade deal is supposed to achieve it doesn't include china or the united states after donald trump withdrew the remaining eleven members are hoping to come to some sort of agreement during a pick but a planned leaders' meeting to sign off on a provisional agreement didn't happen when she joined on friday because of last

9:25 pm
clothes for people to design and customise now the ships have to stop at other ports the goods are unloaded there and then when shipped here that has increased the cost of shipping so now i've been forced to close my business. as i am isn't alone the port is the country's logistic hub and gateway to the arabian gulf it exports not just from sudan but also from landlocked neighboring countries like judd and south sudan all the ships at the port are now foreign but it wasn't long ago that sudan had its own fleet of fifteen ships which transported goods and passengers but one thing happened that slowly killed the industry until last month the u.s. had imposed economic and trade sanctions on sudan it meant the government couldn't maintain its own fleet of ships and had to tell them to cut its losses the last almost sold almost a year and a half before the sanctions were lifted the sanctions came into force in one thousand nine hundred seven when the us accused the then of human rights abuses and sponsoring terror it was designed to hurt the sudanese economy and so it did and
9:26 pm
all but destroyed the shipping industry to news authorities say with the sanctions lifted they'll try to rebuild their fleet but it won't be easy on the target for years off the building ships takes a lot of time making one from scratch takes at least two years so we don't expect it to happen in the near future only after quite a while will sudan's shipping fleet gain its strength the port is becoming more active though hopefully by next year we will have more development in the industry analysts say the government should focus on modernization. of course lifting the sanctions gives us a chance for the government to bring in new technologies to make the port and its industry able to provide better services for now but won't help the economy maybe in two or three years it will especially through transit services for the neighboring landlocked countries. has and knows his days of bringing in goods by sea are over but he hopes with a new post sanctions era the younger generation could export trade beyond the

millions of children who were saved under malaria prevention program are now at risk of contracting the disease because of a lack of funding sees no malaria chemo prevention or s.m.c. was a scheme which provided children with anti malarial drugs during the rainy season the charity malaria consortium says it's helped save forty thousand lives and prevented six million cases mainly across africa it costs three dollars forty a year per child but the group says money is running out leaving thirty four million children at risk of being exposed to malaria well as the night to james said to been the run of the technical director for the malaria consortium james a very warm welcome to the program lovely to have you with us so james just tell me how you got involved with the program and what it was designed to achieve. the program stem from research that had shown that s m c c no it says in america more
9:32 pm
prevention was very effective and in malaria consortium we were looking for the opportunity to scale it up because there were twenty five million children who could benefit from the intervention and very few of those were being targeted through research so we designed a project and submitted out an application to unity who fortunately enough selected us and we participated in a multi country project in seven countries with five organizations and extended as sim c. to cover at least on average i would say about three to six million children between twenty fifteen twenty sixteen and in total we've managed to save about forty thousand kids from dying that's amazing ajay why does it work so well this this post yes it works so well because treatment is something which is. accepted
9:33 pm
by populations and a treatment given at the exact point just before children are likely to fall sick and prevents them from falling sick is so effective and the research has shown that and we have shown you did scale and i think. i think it's credit to the researchers who managed to prove this in addition the drug is highly effective it's a combination of two drugs one is called so for dioxin pyre meth amine which is a combination and with a queen and they're used in areas where both drugs do not have high resistance what would you like to see happen next i mean this is about funding ultimately isn't it how much support have you got to continue the program as it's well the project was designed as a catalytic project i.e. to improve access to get rid of some of the barriers which we have managed to and to transition to other streams of funding like the global fund like the world bank
9:34 pm
but importantly to government funding so the project comes to an end in february twenty eighth mean i think the critical thing is that the funding has to come of the right time for example if the funding doesn't come between now and probably january it would be too late to be able to order the drugs in time for the rainy season that starts in july in the sahara region so if the money for example came on board in july or august it would be too late because you need a lead time to order the medicines to put the plans in place and to get the medicines to the villages where they should be distributed so i think it's critical that the funding needs to come in time for the drugs to be made available governments need to put in as much as they can other organizations like the global fund like the world bank like the african development bank islamic development bank need to put the money in at the right time so this will work but only in some
9:35 pm
countries just explain why because it only works where malaria transmission is about four months of the the calendar year and in an environment where sixty percent of malaria occurs during those four months and as i mentioned the two drugs need to be efficacious. i effective in that setting and the area that has been defined by the show is the sahara region in sub-saharan africa james thank you so much for joining us and best of luck with your project. now that you use chief breaks it negotiator has given the u.k. a two week ultimatum to make concessions on a divorce agreement of talks are to proceed to the next round and siobhan a says it's vital for the u.k. to increase its offer of an exit bill which some officials say could be as much as seventy billion dollars peter sharp reports. time does appear to be running out for the british bracks negotiators as the representative field in this question at the

end of the second day of talks in brussels. to confirm for me that you will need clarifications or concessions whichever you prefer from the u.k. within two weeks in order to move on to the second phase in december my boss a week my response says michel barnier is yes in december either leaders in brussels will decide whether sufficient progress has been made of the two sides or to move on to discuss important future trade deals we remain ready and willing to engage as often and as quickly as needed to secure this outcome over the weeks remaining ahead of the december european council. the united kingdom will continue to engage and negotiate constructively as we've done since the start but to the prime minister's exasperate the former british ambassador to the e.u. left open the possibility of leaving breck's it altogether it's not inconceivable
