2:10 am
husband never been more needed to have it at all just. so idea arabia's ambassador to the u.n. has been defending the kingdom's announcement that it's only partially lifting the blockade in yemen diplomatic editor james bays has more. saudi arabia has announced that aid is going to be allowed in but only to places that are controlled by its military coalition aid is not going to be allowed to ports and airports which are under who think control the problem with that is that eighty percent of yemen's food normally comes in through the data port and that is under who think control with regard to the u.n. their statements on this are very careful because of the political sensitivity but if you read between the lines what they're saying is this is too little too late and the ports that we need access to or the ones where the humanitarian needs are the greatest and that includes data and salif. sea ports. obviously we
2:11 am
welcome the opening of other other ports but those are the ones that we need later in the same room saudi arabia's ambassador flanked by the ambassador of yemen and the deputy ambassador of the united arab emirates took questions from reporters they were asked why they were planning to lift the blockade selectively doesn't this lay you open to accusations of using starvation as a weapon of war no no far from it we are we are saying that we have had to take measures to control the safety and security of our country and we have taken these measures on a temporary basis and for a short and limited period of time we are lifting the siege in the areas where there is no threat of smuggling we are taking steps to improve the verification mechanism in the other areas and in the meantime we have not stopped the supply of humanitarian aid to all of you haven't from saudi arabia and from from elsewhere
2:12 am
the saudi ambassador denied reports that the president of yemen president had he was under house arrest in saudi arabia it's perhaps remarkable that moments later he was asked exactly the same question about saad hariri the prime minister of lebanon who resigned in riyadh last week and he was still in saudi arabia. on saudi arabia as u.n. ambassador has also addressed the recent anti corruption crackdown in his country he said detained members of the royal family will be granted due process crown prince mohammed bin salman has had dozens of high profile saudis detained in recent weeks including billionaire prince while you've been told all those arrested are accused of money laundering bribery and exploiting public office for personal gain critics have dismissed the move as a power grab by the crown prince u.s. president donald trump has been meeting southeast asian leaders at the summit including host president george you go to the white house says human rights issues
2:13 am
and detailed his war on drugs were discussed but the philippine government says they weren't allowed in dog and has more from manila. when he was sworn into office philippines president was very good at that just says that could she 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 is now singing a different. you're leaving. he promised to pursue an independent foreign policy being away from the u.s. while building closer relations with china and russia those who want to support him now see the kind of relationship between the philippines and the united states.
2:14 am
foreign policy independence 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 asean member states all of our diplomatic ties with north korea but have unanimously condemned pyongyang's nuclear weapons program over the weekend three uis aircraft carriers carried out joint exercises off the east coast of south korea worrying 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 eitel in the region and the ruhi a crisis in me and mark the thirty and shop are meeting on the sidelines bilateral 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
2:15 am
which has led to the deaths of more than ten thousand filipinos thanks and far from the glittering halls of sea and protests continue in downtown manila. this band been going on for more than thirty minutes now and it shows no sign of slowing down protesters are chanting the word coup which means poppy harlow they say philippine state forces together with president hu they go there are 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. duggan i'm just here in manila. i certainly does and china have agreed to start talks on drafting a new guideline for the south china sea the philippine foreign ministry says the
2:16 am
countries will negotiate a fictive code of conduct over the long disputed territory but it spokesman gave no details on when the talks are going to begin for more than a decade leaders of the ten member bloc of struggle to reach a deal with china which claims most of the strategic waterway. well let's take a closer look at what's at stake and who claims what in the south china sea china bases its claim on the so-called nine dash line which considers a virtually all of the south china sea as its territory beijing maintains its claim is based on historical evidence dating back two thousand years but six others vietnam the philippines taiwan malaysia and i and indonesia have overlapping claims disputes along similar between them but intensified in recent years as china moved to cement its claim the un estimates the south china sea carries one third of global shipping the major trade route also has abundant fisheries natural resources
2:17 am
as well as possible all oil and gas reserves. is a fellow at the chicago council and global affairs he's joining us now live from chicago thanks very much for your time this dispute over the china's he's been going on for years what are the chances that some agreement can be reached. well reaching agreement is going to be very difficult for china and aussie on in part because of the consensus decision making process this means that essentially one country an aussie and can veto any agreement and because of that i think china is going to look to take advantage and then this agreement in their favor you mentioned some of these states that have conflicting claims to sovereignty one of the states that did not does not have a claim is cambodia and increasingly cambodia has slid into china's camp so if there is an agreement that is reached and china doesn't like it it may be able to lean on cambodia to nullify any such agreement and it is to again bend it in its favor it doesn't sound to me as though very much has changed since previous talks
2:18 am
in previous years what's prompted this round of talks what's changed well i think in part you know you have donald trump the us president there in southeast asia and it was just a day or two ago where he said that he would be willing to negotiate or arbitrate some of these issues on the south china sea and then suddenly you have china coming in and reaching this agreement with asio on that this is something that they can work out with themselves this looks like it's going to try to freeze out the united states that is probably china's intention and in doing so it may try to codify and legitimate some of the the island building that it's done it's taken steps to militarize some of those islands and it would certainly like to lock that in perhaps that is something that it can do with some of these agreements and that will probably be its aim in doing so it will then be able to say that see these this agreement has been reached with countries that have a stake in the region and therefore this agreement should be recognized in the u.s. should no longer have a say in what happens in the south china sea so we've seen
2:19 am
a tentative agreement amongst the ass and countries in the trans-pacific partnership in the last few days we're now seeing china talking to the ass and nations are we seeing the start of a global split between china led asia's side of the world and the u.s. and its allies on the other. i think we are certainly starting starting to see that happen china has been very very carefree in its spending it has gone out of its way to fund a lot of the countries in southeast asia through development aid through infrastructure building and it's slowly looking at northeast asia as a place where it can also perhaps start to split the u.s. alliances there of course the u.s. is going to tend to rely on the western countries and increasing it looks like the united states is going to become less influential in asia it certainly is not its intent it wants to stay involved it continues to do freedom of navigation operations in the south china sea and be very involved in northeast asia with south korea and japan as they tend to counter north korea but increasingly i think
2:20 am
china's influence is going to grow and the u.s. is going to have to reckon with that at some point always good to get your opinion on this thank you very much indeed plenty more ahead on the news including the russian president says his work with his turkish counterpart is producing concrete results. hundreds of politicians have been given to prove they're not. going to tell you why later in the program. and hassled joe's going to tell you why their coach wanted the media training session that's going to come up in the sport . airstrikes in a market in a rebel held town in northern syria reported to have killed at least sixty two people the syrian observatory for human rights says three strikes hit the countryside to. aleppo it's inside one of the deescalation zones agreed with tween
2:21 am
turkey russia and iran it's not yet clear who is responsible for the strikes. well the war in syria was on the agenda at a meeting between the russian and turkish presidents in sochi. said their work in syria is producing concrete results and reza tell you about one said he agreed with putin to focus on a political solution to the conflict he said the deescalation zones have provided the necessary groundwork. we have discussed the most recent development in syria deescalation zones have done a lot to reduce violence in the region we have come to the same understanding that there is now sufficient grounds for resolution and very challenge has the latest from sochi. this was a curious sort of press conference in the topics which we had been led to believe was going to be the main discussion point here syria was actually talked about very
2:22 am
little when the two men came out to meet the press afterwards of course they did discuss syria in the press conference so we can hear some of what putin had to say about it here now when you. of course we discussed the syrian issues in the background of the success of course you terrorism we decided we need to coordinate our efforts to ensure long term certainly to the situation we need to promote the process of a political outcome. the president the joint communique was approved to ensure the integrity and sovereignty of the country in syria person also pointed to the asked on a process and its deescalation zones co-sponsored by russia turkey and iran as being responsible for a marked decrease in violence he wants to keep that going and also say that he should meet as often as they possibly can but mostly this press conference dealt with trade before the incident two years ago where turkey shot
2:23 am
a russian war plane out of the sky over the turkey syria border these two countries have had a very productive trade relationship that was completely shattered by that incident and over the last few months they have been working towards getting that back on track again russia has been lifting the embargo put in place and getting frozen infrastructure projects like energy pipelines and nuclear reactors bringing those out of the chiller and getting them moving again we haven't quite got there yet they said in this press conference but the relationship is almost back to where it was before lebanon's president says he's happy to hear prime minister saad hariri will be returning to beirut and is considering taking back his resignation that he made those comments in an interview in riyadh on sunday the instability in lebanon has sparked fears of a wider conflict with israel paying particularly close attention how the faucet
2:24 am
reports from west to receive them. israeli troops rehearse another war with hezbollah these exercises the largest in one thousand years took place in september two months on some are wondering whether lebanon's political crisis might set the stage for the real thing this causes are going to have great concerns over the developments in the middle east the fact that the prime minister has fled to another country obviously leads destabilization eleven and there were already several areas of instability behind those fears of the extraordinary events of the last ten days which have seen the lebanese prime minister side hariri summoned to saudi arabia and announce his resignation and the leader of hezbollah accuse the saudis of declaring war the israeli media have been full of speculation about the intentions of the saudi crown prince mohammed bin sandman one theory is that he's trying to destabilize lebanon in order to spark a war in which israel would defeat hezbollah and deal a blow to their common enemy iran even if that theory were correct there's little
2:25 am
sense among analysts here that israel would at the moment be willing to play along it will certainly be an enormous test at an early stage of the recent warming in relations between saudi arabia and israel. not least because since the last lebanon war in two thousand and six hezbollah soldiers have been battle hardened in syria and its missile arsenal has swelled in size range and destructive power on the israeli side defense minister avigdor lieberman has repeatedly this year promised that in any future conflict israel would seek a decisive clear victory all of which would risk a largescale conflict eleven years ago just because both sides have incentives not to go to war doesn't mean they're not going to go to war all it takes is one miscalculation of you know from one side of the other response to you and then there's a response to the response and back and forth and all of a sudden you're fighting a war that you didn't want i really gave a t.v. interview on sunday raising the prospect of his return to lebanon and even to office if he's uneasy partners in power hezbollah stopped intervening in the war in

2:39 am
scientists in the netherlands say they're close to bringing meat grown in a laboratory to the market for reports from amsterdam. end of future this is what making a beef burger might look like taking sales from a piece of gout and letting them multiply into cultured meats this university professor says he can grow ten thousand grams of meat from just one piece of muscle and he says we better get used to 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 produces 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
2:40 am
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 average european it's about eighty six moved here that's about four hundred of these characters but what is in a few years from now. will taste exactly the same and be the exact same price as the ones here which one when the consumer kills 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 and there are many things people have learned to eat. that their grandmothers didn't date certain for to 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
2:41 am
different things from our grandparents and 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 know if the fish feel like eating plastic or something even though you say that they do you have the exact same taste but well for now it's a one step before i cannot think of meeting the. science means that the cells of just one cow. could pre-fight enough meat for the whole of europe to first lab burgers are expected to be on the market within three years but even if science could solve the massive issues caused by our meat industry the question remains will we eat your downspouts al-jazeera the netherlands the u.k.'s foreign secretary has apologized for causing distress to a british citizen jailed in herat iran and her family authorities say intel around
