hello and welcome to the al-jazeera news hour live from our headquarters in doha with me elizabeth ron i'm coming up in the next sixty minutes alice tinian leaders threatened to suspend communication with the u.s. if it closes their diplomatic mission and washington d.c. . the streets in zimbabwe a day before president mugabe's party holds a meeting to decide his fate. lebanese prime minister meets the french president in paris and says return to his country next week and new hope in the search for a missing argentine submarine with forty four crewmembers on board several failed satellite calls have been detected from the vessel. in direct negotiations with israel israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu says
he respects the u.s. decision but the p.l.o. which the international community sees as the official representative of all palestinians has threatened to end all contact with the u.s. if the office is closed well it's hard to meeting on monday between the u.s. state department and the palestinian palestinian liberation organization will bring some clarity on that issue don estabrook reports. the plant closure of the palestinian liberation organization's office in washington prompted shock and a threat from a senior palestinian official to freeze time with the us this is very unfortunate and seven this is the pressure being exerted on this administration from the netanyahu government and the time when we are trying to cooperate to achieve the ultimate deal they take such steps which would undermine the peace process the u.s. state department announced its decision to close the office late last week citing
a twenty fifteen law placing conditions on the u.s. mission office those conditions relate to the palestinians pressuring the international criminal court to seek charges against israel over the issue of israeli settlements and crimes against palestinians the move comes as the troubled ministration is trying to broker a peace plan between the palestinians and israelis president donald trump said such a deal would be a cornerstone of his administration he very much in september he met with palestinian president mahmoud abbas on the sidelines of the u.n. general assembly meeting of world leaders in new york and a last while the president sent his son in law and adviser jared cushion or to the middle east in part to work out a blueprint for a deal the white house says closing the p.l.o. office doesn't mean it's cutting off communications with the palestinians and could be viewed as a way to expedite the peace process but a middle east analyst says the trumpet ministration is not bargaining in good faith
the u.s. is not an honest broker the u.s. is representing its own interests and they correspond primarily with the right wing of israeli interests the closure isn't a done deal president trump has ninety days to review the decision and could keep the office open if he thinks the palestinians are engaged in meaningful and direct negotiations with the israelis die on estabrook al-jazeera washington. to other news now zimbabwe and tens of thousands of people have drawn from across the capital harare calling for president robert mugabe to resign the ninety three year old has been on the house arrest at his official residence after the military took control on wednesday has ronan's out of here says a hold a meeting on sunday to discuss mugabe's fate i don't want also reports from harare . ecstatic zimbabweans say they can feel change is coming soldiers posed
for selfies with jubilant crowds hundreds of thousands of people flooded the streets of harare men women and children marched alongside armored cars and soldiers they say they want president robert mugabe who has ruled for nearly forty years to resign good money for the medicines but this. was caused sixty thousand dollars we are saying you should stop. this country like they have done enough i think it is. freedom to ask all of us we've been waiting for this time for so long we have been oppressed for a very long time so. basically. it was a united front opposition supporters people loyal to mugabe is on a party and veterans of the liberation war against white rule marched together the main opposition leader morgan tsvangirai says the country is preparing for a post mugabe era the army seize control earlier in the week and confined the
country's leader his private residence in harare. and. speaking from south africa on saturday mugabe's nephew patrick was reported to have said the president and his wife grace are ready to die for what is correct and they have no intention of stepping down but people at the march insisted the ninety three year old has to go explore. the country. branches in all ten provinces have said mugabe should resign they also want grace mcgarvey who heads the party's women's need to go through things on a pair party will meet on sunday to discuss the fate of president robert mugabe and his wife and reinstate the vice president he dismissed him as
a man and god one zimbabweans have only known one nida after decades of being afraid to speak out against mcgarvey things have changed the people marching insist it's not a matter of if but when mugabe will go. head out of. from the i remember when i was involved were an activist and he says the military opened the way for people to protest i think what the people back home of discovered is that the army has opened the way for them to go out there and express you know especially the the fact that they don't like robert mugabe and his wife so they kind of opened the door for them and these are the two main obstacles for people at home so the fact that the army is given the opportunity to say you can come out and express how you feel about everything but just as you see with the numbers of people in the streets and the shocking people of the you know the military do the right thing is probably install a transitional government
a government that will be all inclusive of the opposition parties and the government to not sideline the opposition before by design appears the people want the kind of transitional government that is all inclusive including taking on board what the opposition are saying so that they move the country forward but the main main main point is so that the transitional government will provide you know free and fair credible elections that are internationally want monitored so because as you know. elections for the past ten years lebanon's prime minister saad hariri has confirmed to return to beirut by wednesday and hold talks with president michel aoun made the statement during his visit to france natasha vaclav reports from paris. in the latest twist in this political crisis saad hariri arrived at paris's look airport at dawn and headed to his apartment in the french capital it was the first time the lebanese prime minister had been seen in public since his sudden
resignation in riyadh two weeks ago later he met the french president emmanuel markov at the elisei palace and said he would return to beirut. with regards to the political situation i will be in beirut in the next few days to take part in the celebration of our independence and our express opinions on all subjects once i've made president. hariri was joined by his wife and eldest son but his other two children were left behind in riyadh fueling speculation about why that was at least a source is said only that it had been the hariri family's personal choice. macro invited to really he said not to offer exile but as an act of friendship the fact that some of the rary was here at the elise is being seen by those in france as something of a diplomatic success for him and call it is the french president's mediation attempts over the past two weeks that have seen hariri finally leave riyadh. this
is certainly a diplomatic success for a manual macro at the start of the lebanese crisis no one was very convinced that he'd be able to get results but he succeeded in getting hariri out of saudi arabia and hopefully back to lebanon soon but that it's a personal achievement for macro he's managed to re-insert france into the middle east and diplomatic arena. many people in lebanon say they're fed up with what they regard as foreign meddling in their affairs if hariri does make it back to beirut on wednesday he'll be there is the country celebrates his independence with a public holiday that would be a symbolic moment would be lost on no one natasha butler al jazeera paris. well that was of course heidi these first public appearance and has a resignation many in lebanon are questioning why two of his children were left behind in riyadh zana hall there has more from beirut. saddle had arrival to the
french capital may be a way of showing that he's a free man and that he is able to leave saudi arabia but speculations about his ability to move freely have not been put to rest the very fact that he left his children behind here arrived with his wife his children stayed behind according to his aides it is because they're they're attending school in lebanon many in lebanon including the president believe that the prime minister in one way or another was a hostage in saudi arabia he was forced to resign his resignation speech was written by the saudi authorities and now we are in and the neighborhood which is considered really a hariri stronghold mixed reactions definitely but many people really asking questions on whether or not their leader is a political hostage a little of both of. you how did he saudi citizens did for saudi has influence over him and that means he has a responsibility towards they tell him something he must listen and it's possible
his children could be a pressure caught. he wasn't salty and it's natural that he's there and he would return this is his country. behind only he and. this may be a family issue but. i would like to know i would like to thank president for not accepting his assignation because if you gave her. the first official confirmation that it will be returning to. the man himself. not long after landing in paris held the phone conversation with lebanon's president telling him that he will be here to attend the independence day celebrations on november twenty second now what happens when he. has a resignation or will he decide to appoint a this prime minister and form a new government but on condition that hezbollah. which is allied with iran is not
participating in this new government so a lot of questions on what comes next many in lebanon fear that the crisis is not over because the saudi iranian rivalry which is really playing out across the region is now being played out in lebanon a has started to trickle into yemen nearly two weeks after the saudi led coalition called this land air and sea port as vital supplies are being allowed into ports and government controlled areas by the united nations says only a complete lifting of the blockade will stop what could be the worst famine and decades maybe on the home reports. these machines a slowly cleaning this man's blood and keeping him alive a saudi led coalition is strike left him without any obvious injuries but the trauma and the health problems came soon after. you know in our

alleged flow of weapons to who the rebels from iran but it's increased the hardship for millions of human knees a majority of whom need some sort of assistance the saudi led coalition says aid can get in through what it describes as liberated ports it's partially open to the government controlled port of aden in the south but none of the points of entry are in areas under hoofy control that includes the airport in the capital sanaa and to the port of who data through which the bulk of all aid is delivered when i think covering the war in yemen for two and a half years now but here's an idea of the impact from just the last twelve days seven million people were already on the. think of famine without any kind of aid getting in the u.n. says that number will rise past ten million the cost of the saudi led blockade is being measured not in care but in the number of lives lost one hundred fifty thousand of them that's how many mel now has children the u.n.

a case of. scouring the area a vast area of the south atlantic hoping that there is life hoping that the submarine will come to this and they can rescue those crew members daniel as we mentioned the navy saying that they're not ruling out any theories what could have happened do we know. isn't there's a very old submarine it was bought from germany and in the mid one nine hundred eighty s. it's been renovated several renovated since then to give it a life of service life of another thirty years or so it's run by diesel and electricity the orthorexic say that it's lighted in all it was still in good working condition it was on a routine mission from the southern port to the southern tip of argentina swire here in margot last journey of something like three thousand kilometer as. i said has been speculation the lack of communication there was a fire on board it was
a failure some of this of the systems on board really in your thirty's do you know at this stage simply they lost communications it's fine to reestablish communications but to get that close quickly as possible daniel thank you very much for that for now that's our correspondent daniel. with the very latest joining us live from my plot i thank you. now thousands of people are taking to the streets in haiti calling for president morris to step down as a later stage of ongoing protests against more as that began two months ago comes on the day moore is officially re-introduce the national army from twenty two years after it was disbanded choice above reports from the capital port au prince. ceremony to begin a day of protests against the government of. the opposition says the government is corrupt and is raising taxes to hurt the poor majority. the president
raised the price of gasoline and passed a criminal with nothing in it for the people this is not what he promised in his campaign. earlier this week an investigation revealed that millions of dollars were stolen from a two billion dollars venezuelan loan to haiti that was meant to help rebuild this nation after the earthquake. and even though it happened during the previous administration it has people disenchanted with the political class people here. in the northern city of cap-haitien president stated the haitian armed forces. and . i'm going to insist for all the people of haiti for all humanity. is
not involved in politics haiti has been without military forces since one nine hundred ninety five when former president. disbanded the army after he returned to power following a call for now it's only composed of one hundred fifty members its main job will be to patrol the seas and the. or with the dominican republic. and to help rebuild after natural disasters. but forces are clear more and reinstating the army is a mistake. no no no no no. haiti is one of the poorest countries in the world and falling aid has slowed down in recent years the government insists it's doing what's necessary to improve the economy. but on the
streets there are many who fear the president's reforms will end up hurting those who need help the most. hideous i was told to prince. the mayor of caracas has arrived in madrid after escaping house arrest and venezuela. as a vocal opponent of president. he'd been confined to his home since two thousand and fifteen charged with supporting an attempted coup but she denies the sixty two year old crossed the border into colombia and then flew to spain that asma says he'll work from exile to free political prisoners and organized resistance against mother rule while it's unclear how he escaped and made it to the colombian border undetected that asma says it was harrowing. living like. i made this twenty four hour trip passing twenty nine checkpoints crossing trials taking all the risk. i did nothing but think about the value of freedom and today
as i arrive in spain i feel free. to head to the polls to elect their new president on sunday former president sebastian pinera favorite to one but his presidency was plagued by massive protests of inequality and education a latin america correspondent reports from santiago. he left office four years ago after a fairly lackluster administration yet former president. is the favorite for a second crack at jilly's presidency he hasn't taken off the red rubber watch the president barack obama gave him is that a good luck trying now. probably. this will make the difference between good times and bad time all the to the people . but unlike obama is a conservative and a businessman with even more billionaires than donald trump out of. chile is latin
america's most stable economy but after a series of corruption scandals politics seems to have lost its blue. politicians are all in bed together they only care about their own interests and their own well being. major structural reforms introduced by socialist president michelle bachelet haven't yet produced benefits the center left chances the political right was very very effective and installing a discourse of the country is going down the drain economic growth is slowing down you're creating uncertainty etc was an actual fact it was the international scenario of slowing growth. the center left is going into the elections deeply divided. with four candidates. hundred years a former journalist is vowing to continue by chile's reforms in this still socially unequal country the right wing will never implement reforms because they want to maintain the monopoly of
a few who then invest their money abroad. and this election all the center left presidential candidates are competing not just against former president peña out of it but also against the only real possibility of. the opposition candidate and that's why the government has been campaigning to hire illicitly to convince chileans what is inside their disenchantment with politicians and go out and. indeed there's little enthusiasm for an election that many predict will say less about what chileans want than about what they no longer believe. you see in human santiago. so ahead on the news hour one of the most divisive politicians and history says he'll step down as party leader after nearly thirty five years. a temporary relief for thousands of palestinians are to egypt reopens the border crossing. and roger federer's comeback

good to have you with us on the al-jazeera new sound these are our top stories there's concern for peace efforts in the middle east after the trumpet ministration announced plans to close the palestine liberation organization office and washington d.c. it follows palestinian calls to prosecute as right at the international criminal court over illegal settlements. tens of thousands of people in zimbabwe have held rallies across. the ninety three year old has been under house arrest since the military took control wednesday and argentina's defense ministry says it's detected seven failed satellite calls from a submarine that's been missing since wednesday before crew members on the thought he's lost contact with the san juan as it was returning to base and the latter for
a routine mission in the southern at land tick. we're going to get more on our top story now the planned closure of the p.l.o. office and washington d.c. we're joined by mohamad the ways palestinian american political analyst researcher who specializes in the u.s. and the middle east he also worked on the oslo accords under the clinton administration and he's joining us live from washington d.c. mr always it's always a pleasure to have you with us on al-jazeera what do you make of the white house saying that closing the p.l.o. office could expedite the peace process is that realistic given what the p.l.o. are saying that they will cut all communication with the u.s. government if they offices closed. you know first of all the term but ministration have not defined the peace process which priests process are they talking about there is no peace process between israel and the fellas in years since the death of the of the or slow accord that israel has violated since the
beginning. what is talking about now he wants a peace deal between israel and his arabs i mean the arabs who are supporting him in order to. lift the embargo or the blockade that is between the arabs. and the israelis so it is a peace process for israel all the time they never feel the us administration they never fail to show that they are not an answer honest broker here going to the i.c.c. to the international criminal court has nothing to do with this america wants israel to violate all international laws with impunity if he wants to whatever he calls a peace process away from the palestinians first of all there is no peace process will let him take it mr whately a little of that which is if the us isn't interested in the peace process which as
you say they haven't even defined why send the administration chief negotiator jared question or a middle east representative jason going to jerusalem and ramallah what are they doing there. they are using the pressure tactics tactics in order to pressure the current leadership of the p.l.o. to surrender and to agree with the what they call the the plan the peace plan of drum which nobody knows anything about it except what. they talk about peace between the arabs and israel not between the palestinians and israel they want mahmoud abbas and the mahmoud abbas to riyadh in order to talk to the saudis they want to bring him into the cover of the that peace deal he's talking about and they will put the palestinian cause on the back burner they are trying to vilify the palestinians in order to move away from their commitments for peace in the middle
east a real peace between the palestinians and the israelis where the peace have been an elusive thing since nineteen forty eight and while mom of the bass go along with what the trumpet ministration has in mind. first of all because mahmoud abbas have these countries some countries in the arab world who are plotting against him plus because he took sides in the blockade of gaza he took sides with the israeli the israelis egyptians and the emirate is. he is a star without any public support the only support he has is governmental support and he has no choice but to go with the but what they do he cannot move away from this if he moves away then he is nothing his administration his. will be nothing to the palestinian people and he will be out of
a job that is why they keep pressuring him and pressuring qatar even they pressured qatar in order every time every time let me go back here every time or his people go to the middle east the divide and conquer they went to riyadh for their conference and then a couple of weeks later we had the blockade of qatar and then the question or was in riyadh when he came out there was this saturday night massacre. that were arrested and now after this after this we're going to afraid we're going to see something to happen to the palestinians after they go and visit with them and put pressure on them if they refuse to give and they're going to do something against a palestinian you mr when the leadership i'm afraid that's all the time we have we thank you as always for your time and your analysis on this thank you thank you. now members of the arab league are holding an extraordinary meeting at the request of saudi arabia to discuss violations committed by iran and the region come in
a time of major tension between the two regional power centers but a smith explains. after more than two and a half years of fighting in yemen saudi arabia's coalition and iranian backed coup fighters are at a stalemate while the country is on the verge of famine and cholera is spreading wherever the saudis look in the middle east they see iran yemen isn't the only country where they're facing off and iran always seems to be one step ahead in syria iranian soldiers and hezbollah fighters along with the russians of help shift the civil war in favor of president bashar al assad that's at the expense of the anti outside forces riyadh has been supporting the saudis have been accused of allowing thousands of its citizens to fight eisel in syria the iranians have done very world they backed president bashar very solidly in very determinedly from the beginning of that contrasted with the behavior of the u.s.
to western governments in terms of their support for the syrian rebels and the iranians have always been very strategic in the clerk and i think the view from riyadh the the outcome of the syrian crisis has definitely been one that has consolidated iran's position in the region in lebanon prime minister saad hariri resigned citing an assassination plot hariri accused iran and lebanon based iranian backed militia has bala of sowing strife irrate was in riyadh when he resigned the saudis say they didn't force in lebanese politicians accused the saudis of holding her hostage and destabilizing that country. iraq after its invasion of kuwait in nine hundred ninety relations with saudi arabia never recovered while iran has helped the government in baghdad fight isis but here at least the saudis of tried to improve diplomatic relations in february the saudi foreign minister visited baghdad for the first time in twenty seven years and iraqi prime minister hide our
body has been to rehab twice in the past four months the line is the iranians no control or influence in four arab capitals in the in baghdad damascus beirut and most recently in center the yemeni capital again you can exaggerate these things and iran does things deftly and quite intelligent clee but the overall effect is the sense that it is encroaching or the areas that were traditionally the . heart of the arab world the saudis can rely on the u.s. for support but crown prince mohammed bin solomon is a new player in middle east politics the iranian leadership in contrast has been doing this for decades now most of us is in saudi arabia will have to pay a five percent tax when they fill up their tanks starting in january earlier this year they are passed a draft law to apply a five percent value added tax to some products and services as part of the
country's major economic reforms as the oil dependence nation continues to deal with the slump and global oil prices after being completely sealed off since august feed off a border crossing from gaza and egypt has reopened but only temporarily the office meant to open ended finitely later as part of a palestinian reconciliation deal brokered by egypt under the deal and the palestinian authority is handling the crossing and not hamas hundreds of people queued for hours at the border to have their paperwork process so they could cross only humanitarian cases from gaza are allowed into egypt at this stage. now thousands of people have marched in the funeral procession for a rebel commander and the administered kashmir aid were made was killed you a shootout with police at a checkpoint an officer was also killed mourners chanted anti india and pro freedom slogans as they carried moved body he was on
a most wanted list by the indian police. gerry adams the veteran leader of the irish republican party should faine has announced plans to step down from his role after nearly thirty five years his replacement will be elected by party members of the coming months adams has long been a divisive figure in our land and the united kingdom he was the leading spokesman for shin feigns power military wing the irish republican army during its decade long bombing campaign aimed at ending british control of northern ireland. well ken murray is the dublin correspondent for politico and he says adams likely replacement as untainted by links to the ira and that will make it easier for shin fein to develop relationships with other irish parties. he said tonight that he's stepping down as president of shoot thing a party he's been like in charge of since nineteen eighty three things have been happening here over the last of the years in the general election last year here in
the republic of ireland it shouldn't say in increased number of seats in the government parliament from fourteen to twenty three all but wiped out the irish labor party and they ended up holding the balance of power but the established parties to get in and feel in the fall don't want to do business which in thing because i didn't see in charge the party is beautiful like it's being somewhat toxic adams has had a long association with the provisional ira that engaged in a bombing campaign to try an end to british rule in northern ireland. who are the governing party here and the main opposition party in a of believe that as long as adams remains in charge of shin fein it is viewed as being if you like a terrorist party. now u.n. climate talks in the german city of bonn have ended when today two hundred nations agreeing to keep the paris deal on track despite the here west pulling out and to show their commitment to delegates they're going to start a process to preview and even ran pop their efforts to cut carbon emissions and
clock reports from on. long into the night talk to some analysts wrangling over the financial elements of the tax twenty third un climate conference comes to a close. i'm very pleased. with this this isn't the cup branches down which will start in generally twenty eighteen under the fijian presidency the spirit of these talks has been upbeat and the paris agreement it seems is on track so i think that we're in a very good place twenty eight is the year to step it up this year to climate action and i think what we have here set on a good road ahead that's a lot of homework to do it's not easy but i think we're seeing will and decisiveness governments governments cities states private sector to move ahead so progress but is it enough for those most immediately threatened by climate change not enough is being done it's certainly not enough for the survival of the pacific
and there needs to be increased ambition there needs to be a greater responsibility taken by developed countries they need to keep in the ground and they need to move towards a safe and just transition to renewable energy. keeping fossil fuels in the ground was always on the agenda in and outside the conference holes in coal phaseout from angela merkel but the u.k. and canada launched an alliance of twenty nations to wind down coal use meanwhile a delegation sent by the trumpet ministration to promote cult got a predictable welcome. as a coalition of us states and cities stepped into the void to say we're still in the paris agreement. does it matter how much. we think it really fingers i really cannot stop. you cannot stop me from my producing partner. so this conference has delivered what it set out to do and created
