light they do not know where they're going to take it the total led coalition has say they're going to open the portal and then on to other small holes in yemen it officials say they're not using those two smaller ports because of capacity and they say also taking aid meant more than yemen to add them in the south will only give them more logistical nightmares as they have to drive this through areas held by tribal militias and fighters and they're calling on the coalition to allow them to land the much needed aid in the port of the day there in the mall u.s. president donald trump is not his philippine counterpart at the ass and summit in manila relations between the two countries have been strained since rodriguez the tatay came to power he pledged to stand up to washington while fostering closer ties to russia and china it is just an island i can reports from manila to say and
trying now to here to be developing a more cozy relationship. when he was sworn into office philippines president was very good at it just says the country will be cutting ties with the united states but now more than a year later and as chairman of the association of southeast asian nations critics say deterred to is now singing a different tune. over the years we are going to you know. he promised to pursue an independent foreign policy veering away from the u.s. while building closer relations with china and russia those who want supported him now say deter the strong man image isn't quite what it. really shows the kind of relationship there is between him and trump but with the philippines and the united
states it's a neo colonial relations all of many is for a truly independent foreign policy independent from the dictates of the united states of america it's donald trump's first trip to the philippines since he took office security experts say top of his agenda are the growing tensions in the korean peninsula he'll also be meeting with leaders of as he and member states all our diplomatic ties with north korea but have unanimously condemned pyongyang's nuclear weapons program over the weekend three was aircraft carriers carried out joint exercises off the east coast of south korea during many here that the situation shows no sign of the escalating the south china sea dispute is also on the agenda together with the growing influence of isolating the region and the ruhi a crisis in me and mark the thirty and shop are meeting on the sidelines today a lateral discussion that is making many here nervous but trump says the two countries have a great relationship trump wants glossed over deterred to so-called war on drugs
which has led to the deaths of more than ten thousand. filipinos. and far from the glittering r.c.n. protests continue in downtown manila. this been going on for more than thirty minutes now. slowing down protesters are chanting the word coup which means. philippine state forces together with. our stooges of the united states. more than two thousand people showed up and there is no shortage of zeal or anger. but the history between the two countries is so intertwined it will take more than a few protests to separate the united states from its former colony. i'm just here in manila. i was reporting that trump has been criticized for not addressing to
turkey's controversial war on drugs. mcbride has more details. well both sides say this longer awaited bilateral meeting was a big success there's a dispute about exactly what transpired during their discussions and whether in fact the subject of human rights was brought up this is been a controversial issue with critics accusing the trumpet ministration of abandoning the traditional role of a u.s. president in bringing up human rights wherever they might be in the world and here in the philippines there is a big concern about the thousands of people who have died in this contre boy's virtual war on drugs and it was claimed by a white house spokesperson that briefly human rights was brought up by trump now that's been disputed by a spokes person for president deter take who says that yes while the drugs issue was raised a trumpet merely listened largely to the explanation from deter and seemed to agree
or show sympathy towards the menace that the administration here is facing with the challenge from drugs but at no point they say did he raise any human rights objections south korea's military says north korean troops have shot and injured a fellow soldier as he tried to defect to the south it happened in the border village apartment john he's been taken to hospital in south korea. and still ahead on the program amnesty international condemns the syrian government. the tactics. competition set to rise for the first time in docking.

blocked humanitarian help as well as the government sees asking for an independent body to investigate and prosecute those responsible or diagnose a man is the syrian research at amnesty international she says data in this new report was collected from more than one hundred thirty four displaced civilians. and cafe and four hour which is part of the fourth downs agreement we found that had a sham islamic movement and here at the head a sham formerly formerly known as robot and the surveyor i responsible of besieging the predominately shia villages and the countryside so civilians have described to was what i mean they're going through the same horrific experiences as other besieged areas besieged by the syrian government so these two are downs the armed groups have restricted any humanitarian access deprive them from food to city water and even shelled agricultural fields to prevent them from accessing the
agricultural produce. oh and a solvent of a reports now from the turkish tell of gas this close to the border with syria and a warning you might find some images in his report disturbing. maybe so hard drew her last breath just over a month after she was born she weighed barely two kilos. malnutrition has killed a dozen other children in the older suburb of the syrian capital in the last few months doctors say the siege imposed by the syrian government has caused hundreds of children to suffer from moderate to severe malnutrition. this mother pleads to roads be opened and the siege to end she wants aid convoys to bring medicine not just food. similar cries for help are being made in other areas of syria amnesty international says the surrender or starve strategy which is for thousands of syrians from their homes is
a crime against humanity we're going to half a million people continue to be besieged following the displacement of hundreds of thousands in the past year the u.n. to help end the siege for two hundred seventy five thousand people in the rebel held areas of aleppo city seventy five thousand were besieged in homs four thousand people were evacuated from the riaa and at least sixty five thousand were under siege in the four towns of my die as a danika for four. amnesty says the tactic of mass displacement by the assad regime using sieges in forced evacuations is not reconciliation. human rights campaign group urges world leaders to not just take the local cease fire agreements and face value but view them in the context of systemic violations of international law. syrians in besieged jerry years have been forced to leave their ancestral homes after months of hunger and bombardment for years they have been telling the world how they feel in the fact that. i left aleppo my town our fathers and grandfathers
lived there this year militias came to raise their flags with the russian occupiers this is our country the whole world let us down. rights workers say there is ample evidence of restricting access to humanitarian medical aid as well as air and ground assault on hospitals and homes which amounts to war crimes this right repeated calls for action aid workers and many syrians are disappointed that all they have seen is in the action and excuses by the international community a treatment this is future generations will not forget. to. talk as president. is having talks with his counterpart vladimir putin in the russian city of sochi where the war in syria is expected to be high on the agenda it is the fourth meeting between the two leaders this year before flying to sochi and one dismissed suggestions by the u.s. and russia that there can be no military solution to the war in syria saying if
that were true the two countries should pull their troops out. there as for a challenge joins us live now from the city of sochi roy they've already met what four times this year these two men why is this latest get together taking place. you know you can accuse them of ignoring each other can you they have met multiple times they've also spoken multiple times on the phone essentially they are trying to rebuild a relationship that has taken a battering in recent times two years really of turmel started when the turks shot down a russian warplane over the turkish syrian border pretty much exactly two years ago now following that's the russians put in place a whole host of restrictions embargoes etc on turkish goods and services and. citizen movements so they're trying to to rebuild that ns the comments from
both men before they went into their meeting suggested that this is a relationship there is nearly back to how it was before they said that they're cooperating in numerous is that they are working together to settle the syrian war despite the fact that they both century back different sides in the conflict and that corporation there in regional matters will bode well for the future they talked about how trade is getting back to where it was before the crisis a couple of years ago and of course you got bubbling away in the backgrounds the fact that the turks are buying much to the chagrin of turkey's nato allies a very sophisticated piece of russian hardware the s four hundred missile defense system that the turks say is almost complete that that purchase so clearly the relationship between the two men has improved somewhat over the past two years but
no one still not entirely happy with russia right now is a. yeah as you were saying in the introduction there he has a grumble really about what's just taken place between donald trump. and they released a joint statement on saturday where they were talking about syria and they said starts there is no military solution for the syrian crisis well one says he's trying to get his head around this statement because it doesn't really as he thinks . chime with reality if it is the case there is no military solution to the to the war then why he puts it do both russia and the united states have their militaries in syria they should have pulled him out by now he's also got other concerns there is what's going on in at the moment it's one of the most complicated battle spaces in syria where you have essentially the turkish backed free syrian army squished in together with much more hard line elements like al qaeda linked groups and the
group also formerly known as. now the turks are trying to sort of split the elements of parts but the area still under bombardment from regime forces and the turks on happy about that the turks are also concerned about of course the perennial problem for them the kurds now russia has a fairly open dialogue and relationship with the white b.g. which turkey considers a terrorist group and turkey is essentially i think i have voiced concerns about that here at the police and residents in such a hurry and such a thank you. mammals army has replaced the general in charge of rakhine state where a military crackdown has seen more than half a million range of muslims driven from their homes is reported that major general moment so has not been offered a new position u.n. officials accuse the army of ethnic cleansing and mass rape in an operation launched in august six hundred miles away and to have fled across the border to
bangladesh. and they are a singer and activist bob geldof has returned his freedom of the city of dublin award saying he doesn't want to share the honor with me i'm miles leader aung san suu kyi of sosa cheese association with the award is now a matter of shame due to her response to the range of crisis city was given the award by geldof native city in two thousand and twelve months and says she wants to extract the fifty to sixty. which is pretty much certain sure the story told her to raise to open the. window that she secured so i don't want to be able to say. what you wrote strikes against the subject oh the french president emmanuel mackerel has paid tribute to the one hundred thirty people killed when gunmen and suicide bombers attacked paris two years ago across hugged the frontman of the band eagles of death metal who'd been performing at the battle
plan a concert hall where ninety people were killed ceremonies were held across paris at the other sites that were targeted carbon emissions are projected to rise for the first time in four years according to scientists global c o two emissions had plateaued over the last three years leading to hopes they had heat but in twenty seventeen they're set to rise by about two percent globally according to a report by the global carbon project presented at the climate talks in bonn it's mainly due to china whose emissions are expected to rise by free and a half percent it is the world's top carbon emitter responsible for almost thirty percent of the global total followed by the us at fourteen percent and india with seven percent or research shows that the global meat industry produces more greenhouse gas emissions than cars planes trains and ships combined but scientists in the netherlands say they are close to bringing meat grown in
a laboratory to the market for lawns park has more from amsterdam. indeed future this is what making a beef burger might look like taking cells from a piece of and letting them multiply into cultured meats this university professor says he can grow ten thousand grams of maize from just one piece of muscle and he says we better get used to it that in effect means that we can reduce the number of cars worldwide from one and a half billion to maybe ten thousand. and then we won't have the methane emissions we won't have all the resources that go into a car because of how is a terribly inefficient animal so this process is going to be more efficient. so that it reduces less resources and it's not as polluted and you can let the cow live as the world's population increases the demand on food supplies will also grow dramatically meat production takes up eight percent of the
world's water huge amount of land and contributes almost a fifth of the world's greenhouse gas emissions everett's european it's about eighty who knows if you need a year that's about four hundred of these characters but what is in a few years from now observer will say six seconds to see and be the exact same price as the ones here which one with the consumer killed this woman is one of the world's leading food scientist she believes that what we might find palatable today might be normal for the next generation i mean there are many things people have learned to eat. that their grandmothers didn't eat certain for to the vegetables but also certain types of fish that people didn't know about her or snails for example that many people did not eat apart from the french. i think it's a it's a fallacy to think that fruit habits are. more vile in time in fact we eat quite
different things from our grandparents parents' generation that at a burger restaurant the manager has mixed emotions he worries about the damage too much meat planets but he's also suspicious of the idea of eating meat so they don't have the fish don't like eating plastic or something even though you say that they do have the exact same taste but well for now it's a one step before i cannot think of meeting it yet. science means that the cells of just one cow. could provide enough meat for the whole of europe the first lab burgers are expected to be on the market within three years but even if science could solve the message issues caused by our meat industry the question remains will we eat it's. al-jazeera the netherlands.
