great coal pollution and increasing coal pollution between the two countries they talked about agriculture on hold. on trade as well as mutual energy projects but they also talked about the situation in the middle east particularly. said decision by the us president global to recognize jerusalem couple of is right president obama called with the responsible and save it was and how think and also talk about the number of people killed in the demonstrations in the occupied territories. say it wasn't how. it was on offer them to the peace process and said any progress will have to come through. peace talks which he said must be restarted not on syria they talk about escalation and militarily and more about talks with president putin among
sing talks to be held in russia next. thousands of protesters have rallies in lebanon against u.s. president donald trump's recognition of jerusalem as the capital of israel mass demonstrations were called by hezbollah leader hassan nasrallah follows violent confrontations on sunday between protesters and security forces near the u.s. embassy. at that. if it's hot we are all in this war we have all experienced this our brothers in gaza any demonstrations no matter how big or small only give more resistance or make us feel that we are not alone the american israeli resolution which is supported by some arab countries the aim of it to clear the palestinian cause that's the danger that the palestinian people face we should confront it the nation as a whole should confront this dangerous american project and try to impose a solution for the palestinian people. c.n.n.
has more now from beirut. trucks decision to recognize jerusalem as the capital of israel in one way or the other is serving hezbollah's interests because hezbollah really has long championed the palestinian cause as its own ever since its inception through your three decades ago and as of late in the past few years it has come under a lot of criticism of the sauce a lot of support in the arab world and here in lebanon for militarily intervening in syria many people no longer regarded it as a resistance movement that it became a sectarian militias and that it was serving iran's interests but now hezbollah saying the fight against isis is driving down to the so-called resistance axis will now focus on jerusalem its main cause so in one way or another if the hezbollah is trying to regain a legitimacy in the eyes of many in the arab world in the struggle saying well you
know arab states should support the palestinian intifada uprising he said that the so-called resistance axis what they call it is resistance axis that they should come together and come up with a strategy to confront israel but he stopped short of saying what action should be taken against israel because at the end of the day it will have a domestic backlash because it hasn't pulled into lebanon that it cannot take any decision to wage war or peace on its own very carefully worded speech but clearly hezbollah trying. again in one way or the other some sort of political capital from trump's decision israel's prime minister has to follow washington's lead and recognized her islam as his country's capital but human netanyahu was meeting you foreign ministers in brussels where he faced resistance to that suggestion and came under pressure to restart middle east peace efforts john mccain reports now from the belgian capital. a wintry monday morning greeted benjamin netanyahu in brussels but the chill in the air outside was seemingly absent inside as he met federica.
her role as e.u. foreign policy chief is to seek compromise where possible but his message regarding the status of jerusalem was an ambiguous i believe everyone though we don't have an agreement yet this is what will happen in the future i believe that all or most of the. countries will move their embassies to jerusalem recognize crucial in this israel's work up all but many e.u. leaders disagree criticizing president donald trump's decision to recognize jerusalem as israel's capital as fanning the flames of protest for her part morgan any reiterated the e.u.'s official position we believe. that the only realistic solution to the conflicts between israel and palestine is based on two states which are those eleven as the capital of both the state of israel and the state of palestine along the sixty seven line. another element of netanyahu is visit was
meeting the e.u.'s many foreign ministers around the table with him where the representatives of at least two governments have said they will recognize jerusalem as israel's capital which means although the e.u. tries to speak with one voice on this issue there are some dissenters and raising the question of how successful europe can be as an intermediary in the middle east the e.u. is not a victim of its all lack of involvement the enrollment is still there it was never front line and what won't but was there it is a victim of the one sided position of president despite all the spin that we're hearing now but for the moment at least many here believe president trumps actions have put the prospect of progress in the middle east in the deep freeze don't it came out zero brussels well the israeli military says it's launched airstrikes on

the fires at the moment seem to be burning mostly in the hills deep in the back country although several coastal towns are still considered under threat firefighters have managed to beat back the most immediate threat to those communities we can hear overhead helicopters going into the back country carrying giant buckets of water which they drop on the fire it's really one of the only ways of fighting this because the train is so tough it's very very difficult for firefighters to get in on foot there's another factor here which i want to show you and that is the smoke which is pretty unbelievable at this moment it is as you can see on the hill tops over here they're just cloaked in this blue thick acrid smoke it's it's very irritating to the lungs and to the throat and of course for the people who live here they really have no choice but to simply
endure it there have been. a number of evacuations but a lot of people are still in place waiting to see what happens with this fire which is now burning into its second week to ukraine now where judges fetal position politician mikhail saakashvili from detention former georgian president is accused of conspiring. to petro poroshenko earlier his supporters clashed with the court for his custody arrangements for. don't haul has more. following large demonstrations on sunday supporters of opposition figure in ukraine mikhail saakashvili confronted police outside a courthouse in the capital kiev. inside a plastic defendant's box the former president of georgia saakashvili responded to allegations that he conspired to topple ukraine's president the chocolate billionaire petro poroshenko there are three or four very simple. there.

fated war with russia denies plotting with russian businessmen to overthrow poroshenko. the latest dramatic chapter in saakashvili career saw him arrested on a clear rooftop last week before being pre-buy supporters from a police van and then rearrested i now released pending trial he places a possible five years in jail joe how l.t. zero. three women have accused u.s. president donald trump of sexual misconduct are calling for a congressional probe into his behavior they say given widespread inquiries into the actions of other politicians it's only right that he's investigated as well white house correspondent kimberly how could reports. it's not the first time americans are hearing from jessica leads samantha holby and rachel cooks and their allegations against donald trump of sexual misconduct are new but they say each of
their interactions with trump was violating and similar i was forcibly kissed by mr trump during our first introduction as he walked around looking at us like we were his property he jumped all over me the women first publicized their claims of trump's sexual aggression during the twenty sixteen us presidential election campaign and were dismissed by trump as false even after the two thousand and five video emerged of him publicly bragging about groping women grandmothers but much has changed since trump's election victory triggered by the resignation of hollywood mogul harvey weinstein a series of celebrities businessmen and politicians have been forced to step down facing similar allegations the white house has once again responded calling the claims against the president politically motivated disputed by eyewitness accounts and even false the president has directly responded and said that these allegations
are false but on sunday another member of the trump administration said trump's accusers deserve a platform i think any woman who has felt violated or felt mistreated in any way they have every right to speak up with her horse my wife must know the women are speaking up in advance of a critical senate vote on tuesday trump is campaigning for republican roy moore who's been accused of similar conduct it's yet another reason three congressional democrats are calling for the president to step down and trump's accusers are calling for an investigation but this analyst says that's unlikely given the current political climate trump has a base he has a constituency it's about a third. of americans who have deep faith in him who see them who see him as representing their views of defiance of the political establishment and they're going to stand by him no matter what that's why these women and others say they'll
continue to speak out until they say trump is investigated and they hope forced to resign kimberly helped get al-jazeera washington the pentagon says transgender people will be allowed to enlist in the u.s. military despite president trump announcing a ban trump's announcement on twitter in july i contradicted recommendations made by the department of defense review in october a legal challenge by trans people already serving in the military prompted a partial brok of tom's proposed ban trans people have been told they will be able to sign up as of january first twenty eighteen so the united states is going back to the moon that's according to president trump he made the announcement at the white house in the last few hours surrounded by astronauts including buzz aldrin the second man to walk on them in back in one thousand nine hundred sixty nine in signing the directive to the u.s. space agency nasa trump also said the ultimate goal with a man trip to mars last walked on the moon in one nine hundred seventy two last the
first six missions this is a giant step toward that inspiring future and toward reclaiming america's proud destiny in space and space has so much to do with so many other applications including a military application so we are the leader and we're going to stay the leader and we're going to increase that many for all those jordan has more now from washington d.c. . president donald trump's announcement that the u.s. is going to launch a new moon shot a new effort to try to get astronauts back on the moon and perhaps on to other planets in the solar system is at first blush a good welcome idea the idea of going into the cosmos has always fascinated mankind however one of the things that the president did not address during his remarks on monday is where will the money come for nasa to be able to carry out this project
the u.s. space shuttle program was terminated back in two thousand and eleven mainly because the obama administration said it could not find the many millions or billions of dollars needed in order to expand and develop the program into a new generation there's also the question of cooperation first with other countries mr trump did not talk about the ongoing u.s. russian cooperation to keep the international space station in orbit in fact it's up to the russians now to get astronauts and other scientists from around the world up to the space station in order to do their work the u.s. is no longer capable of doing this sort of work there's also a lot of question about how the u.s. would work with private companies in order to leverage their knowledge and their expertise as they are trying to get into the so-called space race companies might
find that it's prestigious to be able to say that they had a role in getting astronauts back on the moon but what about their intellectual property could they protected from other governments that might want to use their knowledge and their work for free that is something that would be to be worked out . well the increasingly popular digital currency bit calling has made its debut on a major u.s. exchange on sunday if you just trading of the virtual money started in the chicago board of exchange it just was so high that the boys website crashed due to heavy traffic reports from washington d.c. . we all know money we can see it touch it if you wanted to even smell it. and we know roughly its value the buying power of the dollar for example doesn't change all that much it's backed by the u.s. government because is the exact opposite it doesn't physically exist but lives virtually on a secretive computer system but now bit cloying can also be compared to corn even
pigs. because it has been traded in the chicago board of exchange meaning just like the price of food traders can now legally place bets on whether the price will go up or down in the future for the most part the value of bitcoin is only going up and up and up again. what is because when bitcoin first unveiled in two thousand and nine it was worth less than a penny for a few years one bitcoin could buy you a cup of coffee but since two thousand and sixteen a huge spike would it debuted on the exchange its value was listed at more than fifteen thousand dollars for one bitcoin meaning if you add up all the big callings out there it would be worth more than the economy of new zealand something the head banker there said in a local interview won't last long that looks remarkably like a bubble forming to my. way of saying them in the past the centuries of saying bubbles in this appears to be a bit of a classic case right now big current owners are limited in where they can use them
there are some restaurants and online stores that will take them and there are few places to turn them into cash but those are few and far between and there is another risk besides the volatility even if you. that's right we were still seen a number of large tax seventy million dollars was stolen from a big point my uncle last week and so security is still a concern volatilities concern and generally i would still advise people if you are going to bast only put into this what you are willing to lose meaning your money can be stolen and there's no one to complain to and there are also concerns about the amount of energy the computers that run the bitcoin system use one report says it's as much as the entire country of denmark but even with that it's clear especially today the price of bitcoin will go way up and way down but it's not going away pedicle hain al-jazeera washington. the nominations have been unveiled
