10:00 pm
at this time. the scene for us where online once is a very nice time in yemen that peace is always possible but it never happens not because the situation is complicated but because no one cares or if you join us on set there are people that are choosing between buying another creation and eating this is a dialogue i want to get in one more comment because this is someone who's an activist and has posted a story join the global conversation at this time on al jazeera. america is the place to do business donald trump sells his america first visions of business elites in dab also takes the opportunity to again slam the media.
10:01 pm
now that i'm julie went on this is al jazeera live from london also coming up. says u.s. diplomat bill which is a different quit in a fine three panel on the range of prices he was fired we talked to the man himself live on the program. fire at a hospital in south korea kills thirty seven people officials admit there was no sprinkler system. and the message misunderstood my kids to send on kalie after most read that it's become easier to enter thank you ok. one welcome to the program u.s. president all trump is taking his america first message to the world's elite addressing the world economic forum and devil see declared the u.s. open for business and one that washington would no longer turn a blind eye to what he described as unfair trade practices he also used the speech
10:02 pm
to attack the media or to prosecutors james phase has more now from davos. as the band played a president trump stood somewhat quickly beside the man who founded the world economic forum klaus schwab his vision for almost half a century open world trade is not at all with the president's america first policy taking the role of salesman in chief trump declared no america first does not mean america alone when the united states grows so does the world american prosperity has created countless. all around that low. trump who was recently as this week has been accused of protectionism after slapping terrorists on imports of solar panels and washing machines criticized other nations for their trading practices we cannot have free and open trade if some
10:03 pm
countries exploit the system at the expense of others we support free trade but it needs to be fair and it needs to be reciprocal he was politely received until he lashed out as he always does the media and it was until i became a politician that i realized how nasty how mean how vicious and how fake. the press can be as the cameras are going off in the back. trump's capitol colleagues seem pleased with the speech but either great job but nobel prize winning economist professor joseph stiglitz said trumpet got his sums wrong and doesn't realize that the global trading system is already stacked in the us is favor he tried to put a soft spin the fact is the rules of the game have been written by the united states largely for the united states and now for the united states to say that they
10:04 pm
are unfair to nine hundred eighty s. they're unfair to developing countries but to say that they're unfair of the united states is unconscionable as president trump left here davos organizers will be breathing a sigh of relief he was scripted and restraint there was though some criticism that there was little new in his speech and no concrete details one veteran davos attendee told me people don't come here to listen to mar a lago happy talk james zira devils well as we heard there in james bays report whilst. also attacked the media he called a report would sell a study funded by special prosecutor well but mostly fake news while the new york times wanted to sack him in june of last year but in baghdad when the top white house lawyer threatened to resign patagonian has that story. publicly donald trump is often dismissed the investigation into potential collusion between his campaign
10:05 pm
and russian operatives but there are now reports he ordered the man behind it fired last june but apparently white house attorney dan mcgann threatened to quit in protest so the president backed down trump had his usual response to the news thank you thank. you goldberg i think so but here's what we do know trump has seem fixated with the russian investigators and it started on march second of last year when attorney general jeff sessions recused himself from the investigation trump was furious saying sessions was supposed to protect him on march twentieth f.b.i. director james comey admits the agency is investigating potential collusion between the trim campaign and russia may ninth he was fired and the very next day trump told visiting russian diplomats that firing him took the pressure off the russian investigation he said something similar on camera and in fact when i decided to
10:06 pm
just do it i said to myself i said you know. this rush sure thing with trump and russia is a made up story that backfired on may seventeenth special counsel robert mueller was appointed to lead the investigation and on june eighth komi testified to congress the trumpet asked him for loyalty and to drop the investigation into trump's national security advisor michael flynn that raised the possibility the tribe broke the law by attempting to obstruct justice former federal prosecutor melanie sloan says if in that same month he attempted to also fire moeller that could also be considered against the law of course a loop into the obstruction of justice case he will examine the question of what were the details of when trump was thinking of firing him what had exactly happened was it right on top of other events so it would be part of that pattern of misconduct that bob mueller is looking out the president could get a chance to clarify all of this to moeller him self the president says he expects
10:07 pm
to sit down for an interview with investigators in the coming weeks but it comes with its own risks lying to them would be a federal offense all on its own political al-jazeera washington. plans to begin returning refugees to me in moscow kind state of being delayed by problems with paperwork that's according to bangladesh it for the setback for me and my u.s. diplomat bill richardson who will be speaking to just a moment has left an advisory panel on the range of crisis set up by the government just days ago well which isn't says he resigned fearing a whitewash but the government says he was removed scott leiter has more from the angle. if you listen to government leaders in myanmar this week was supposed to see a trickle of britain's refugees returning to these new repatriation centers in rakhine state they said from tuesday the centers were open and ready to receive but
10:08 pm
the other country in this equation bangladesh said incomplete paperwork for the refugees is causing a delay no word on just how long some human rights groups think it's much more than paperwork the fundamental problem is that all the operations and set up these plans have been devised these negotiations have been done leaving the refugees outside the door and they haven't been consulted they haven't been talked to and many of the refugees are simply too afraid to go back anywhere near the burmese military also this week the launch of a new commission to follow up from a group headed by former un secretary general kofi anon members both from myanmar and abroad are supposed to implement recommendations and advise on the range of crisis but even before their first trip to recline the highest profile member bill richardson resigned the former u.s. diplomat described as a friend of leader on song suchi abruptly left after
10:09 pm
a heated exchange with her richardson said that he left the commission because it was a whitewash and that on song suchi lacked moral leadership while government officials said that they dismissed him because he was here only to pursue his own agenda remaining member of the commission rebuffed richardson's resignation saying the ma'am our government is both serious and listening to the commission will obviously didn't check with us before he made that statement and i think it's very unfortunate. he didn't join most of the proceedings. since through the years ago and. in any case it was not the intention. of the advisory board to make fun of conclusions this week one member of the kofi anon commission from myanmar gave us his view of richardson's departure and the need for better transparency is a meant to be reckoned with but i think this is
10:10 pm
a little bit of a drawback but we can move on we should take criticism and if there is anything that we need to correct we should do that and if there is nothing wrong we should prove it by facts and figures and in order to do that the basic fact is that you need people to go to that area but that hasn't happened or kind remains heavily controlled by the military humanitarian groups the un and media are still not allowed free access to recount so refugees hoping to return have to rely on limited information to make very important decisions got hodler al-jazeera young gone oh yes diplomat bill richardson joins us live from santa fe in new mexico mr which is a very warm welcome to the program so tell us a bit more about what happened were you asked to leave the panel or did you resign
10:11 pm
i resigned there making it up that they let me go they were begging me to stay the national security adviser youth on that last night i was there. what they said was that in public statements that i was pursuing my own agenda yet my own agenda was basically follow the kofi annan recommendations do something about the refugees stop the human rights atrocities release the two journalists that were detained because freedom of the press is a bedrock of democracy and a coffee anon recommendation of finding out what's going on yeah i was outspoken and on sons to achieve my former friend well i still respect or didn't want to hear that this this commission was a whitewash so when he defended their lives mr hermanson that she knew were they respect their but she didn't respect your opinion is that related to i think what's
10:12 pm
been called a furious response i think those were your words was that regarding calls to free the journalists and and was that a key step for you for them to move forward. yes the fact that she exploded when i gave her frank advice about treating the journalists fairly about an investigation into the mass graves issue she just didn't want to hear bad advice i still like and respect her we've had a thirty year relationship i've invested in me m.r. in the clinton cabinet i push for sanctions on the military i helped get her out of prison house arrest we've known each other for thirty years but she's developed a cocoon a gnat a tutu a bubble where she doesn't want to hear bad advice and i felt that this commission could give or frank advice because they're in a terrible problem with the refugees treating muslims finding
10:13 pm
this transferred from bangladesh to me amar treating the refugees fairly i agree with the human rights groups they're not ready to send these refugees over because of the safety issue there been these atrocities and she didn't want to hear this and the commission met in secret with her without me they didn't want to hear my frank advice so mr myers wrong they met without me because they didn't want to hear my frank advice with one son sujit so wise ellen g. why doesn't she want to hear your your friend why doesn't she want to hear your frank advice what's going on in the background i mean we've heard a lot haven't we been you know the kind of opinion of the international community on this lady has plummeted you know does that affect so what is her to opinion behind the scenes on on the written into crisis do you have
10:14 pm
a sense of what that opinion is. well she doesn't want to show moral leadership because she's afraid of the military the military has enormous power there. she says there's a separation of constitutional rights between the military and her she doesn't want to offend them she doesn't want to take them on but she should say to the military we're in a terrible mess stop these atrocities allow these refugees to move forward don't do mass graves find ways to stop the human rights violations she's unwilling to take on a very powerful entity and that's the military and she has continuously disparaged human rights groups foreign governments the international media the united nations can help enormously with the transfer of these refugees as monitors there are experts at this and she shuns a united nations she doesn't want to allow any investigations there she's gone from
10:15 pm
a human rights icon to a politician and she's unwilling to make those tough decisions and the advisors around or don't want to tell her the truth only she can change now i don't think that we should put sanctions on myanmar because that would hurt the people let's find a way for the west not to lose hope in on science and on sun sushi not they'll lose hope in the west and in human rights groups in the un and governments like the u.s. the european community arab countries that have equities because that we're talking about a large muslim population you know on this tour that we were going to do in the rakhine state there were no meetings with muslim groups there was no meetings with some of the displaced persons camps no dialogue with the rakhine leadership it was a whitewash trip and i wasn't going to be part of that so how big
10:16 pm
a problem then you know is seen in fact in trying to get to a solution and what are the night the right next steps if the parson he's expected to say to show moral leadership won't. well she has to exercise more leadership by telling the military we have to find ways to let these rifty refugees go from bangladesh to me i'm our number two she's got to guarantee them safe passage citizenship freedom of movement no human rights atrocities and then there were a kind state find ways to give these people their a chance to have a normal life to protect their children to have education to have a health care they have some kind of economic development and lastly she should stop hitting her own friends and allies that made her and help there
10:17 pm
a get out of prison make me a mar democracy lastly she should say to the military hey we have to fix the problems here there are huge enormous genocides going on and we have to stop that together and that's in the interest of the people of myanmar to and then lastly with the international community make the u.n. allies make arab countries allies make the u.s. allies international media instead of shunning them instead of attacking us diplomat bill richardson joining us on the program star thank you. more news to come on the program turkey guys to expand its operation anaconda showing the tape of syria all the way to the border with iraq back in just to say.

moral leadership. far in a hospital in south korea has killed at least thirty seven people including patients and nurses in an intensive care unit firefighters in the southern city of mariano managed to rescue dozens of others trapped by the flames kathy novak reports now from seoul. the fire started in the emergency ward at about seven thirty in the morning it quickly spread to other parts of said john hospital and took firefighters more than an hour to bring under control and another two hours to extinguish. all or. stop the fire from spreading from the first floor to the second floor during the initial phase and therefore also prevent a difference spreading to the rest of the building. despite the rescue effort patients and medical staff were killed most were suffocated by inhaling toxic fumes about one hundred patients were being treated in the hospital when the blaze broke
10:22 pm
out about ninety other people in an adjacent nursing unit were safely evacuated president in ordered an investigation into the cause of the fire. that the president moving expresses regret and sadness over the situation of the fire that broke out us a long haul. but all which led to a high number of casualties not long after the fire in that fire in the southern city of jackson claimed twenty nine lives just last month at the time prime minister lead not beyond promised there would never be a repeat now he says he's ashamed to have to say the same thing questions are once again being asked about fire safety in south korea so john hospital doesn't have water sprinklers because if it's a relatively small size the law doesn't require them kathy novak al-jazeera soul in vienna a ninth rand of u.n. led talks to find a solution to the war in syria appears to have reached a dead and well let's get more from her to abdul hamid who's in vienna for us hi
10:23 pm
there hoda so what's the latest. well what's the latest is that the opposition delegation is holding a meeting as we speak with u.n. envoys the fandom is to it's been going on for about an hour now we do know from sources what they're discussing really at this point now that the syrian government delegation has rejected this working document earlier in the day now they're discussing the attendance coming so she meeting called upon by the russians with turkey and iran as a guarantee now from what we understand from our sources is that basically the conditions set by both the opposition and the u.n. secretary general and to a new good terrorist for both the opposition and for the u.n. to indorse to so she have not been met there was no discussion around that they didn't get anything from the syrian delegation so we are expecting at least
10:24 pm
from the opposition that they were probably at some point come out with a public statement saying that they will not attend. this conference when there we have to always the caveat the in the meeting at the moment certainly there is a flurry of diplomatic going on calls in the different delegations in the parties involved in the very complex scenario but from what we understand at the moment there's a lot of disappointment from both from both on the side of the opposition and the u.n. at this stage you have if you just u.n. secretary general the. food the u.n. indorse so she were that actually the syrian government should have a public commitment to resume to five four which is the basis of all this u.n. process it was adopted back in two thousand and fifteen and still there is no
10:25 pm
public commitment to that. also another condition of the years coalition of violence on the ground we are hearing that there is a ceasefire agreement on eastern that was brokered from between the opposition and the russian delegation here that should take that should come in place with it . but however there are some skeptics within the opposition is that we've had such deals in the past and most of the time the russians haven't come through so a very difficult situation i think if you go back but to fund a mystery i said at the beginning of talks that they were critical now that you see all that's happened over the past two days you understand how critical there or. there with the latest from those talks in vienna how to thank you. turkey's president says the operation to push kurdish fighters out of northern syria will extend as far as the border with iraq turkish forces have been fighting for
10:26 pm
a week night to expel the kurdish y p g militia from the african region it is a key part of the syrian democratic forces who are backed by the u.s. dozens of people have died in the fighting each side says it's killed hundreds of enemy fighters. will continue to all branch operation which is on its seventh day today until we reach all of our targets after this will cleanse man bridge from the terrorists as it has been promised to us nobody should be bothered by this because the real owner of memories is not those terrorists but the arab brothers they're after this we'll continue our fight until no terrorist is left more than a year have to the demolition of the new tourist jungle camp there's been a sudden rise in the number of young asylum seekers arriving in the french port of cali of course this point on the european mainland to the u.k. it follows the leaders of france and britain signing a treaty last week aimed at streamlining the process of dealing with arrivals sonia eagle reports from cali the deal seems to have given people false hope of reaching
10:27 pm
the u.k. . playing for time in cali's industrial zone a place where asylum seekers have flocked to in the hope they may escape the limbo they face day in day out while they're here they are trapped many of them been here for months sleeping rough wherever they can go snooping without any front end and there are to me because it is here because it's just because it's. just the best of us. this is not life it's not life a good living in the forest it's we have. so this is the place the location where one of the few distribution points was supposed to occur on thursday afternoon as you can see authorities are there and they've stopped it from happening and that's and cut a lot of anger from those who gathered here to be able to get some food. for months the riot police have been
10:28 pm
a regular presence here as are the standoffs with my kurds desperate to escape. some hope perhaps has been provided by the joint treaty signed by the french president and the british prime minister last week. a particularly important point of the santos treaty will be the subject of on accompany. this treaty to allow all these all those in a position to cross the channel to drastically reduce the time limits from six months to thirty days for adults and from six months to twenty five days for an accompanied minus. the treaties intended to improve the management of the border on both sides of the english channel but there is little evidence as to how it will be done and whether it would expedite urgent asylum cases to reunite them with relatives living in the u k. for those working on the front line of this crisis the expectations have led to rumors that asylum seekers only need to come to
10:29 pm
cali to get to the u.k. and that's led to large numbers of people turning up here i do feel people have false hope because of this misunderstanding and because there's been no effort to explain any of the changes there's been no effort before on to explain to people what asylum in sales and fronts despite the challenges the young the desperate try to find any way they can to reach britain no matter how dangerous the police attempt to stop them climbing on to lorries bound for england but they still take the chance and the risk they feel is worth it to leave behind a life in france that hangs in the balance on a diagonal al-jazeera kalai millions of the students of turned out to celebrate the country's national day january twenty sixth marks the day two hundred thirty years ago when british navy ship sailed into what is now botany bay but indigenous australians and others are mourning what they say was the colonial invasion of
