10:03 pm
access to other team arrived in the syrian capital damascus on saturday both the russian and syrian government cited security concerns and that's why there has been a delay now the o.p.c. w.'s mission is to determine whether or not a chemical weapons attack actually happened its mandate does not a portion any blame the united states and other western countries like france for example believe that the proof or the evidence could have been tampered with because when this alleged chemical weapons attack happened the opposition was in control of they then surrendered russian military police entered duma and they carried out their own inspection and declared that they did not find any traces of chemical weapons that were used now the o.p.c. w. it's still not clear when they're going to release the findings but we have to make clear that western nations are not waiting for the results because they already carried out retaliation they carried out attacks on saturday targeting syria's chemical weapons facilities so the o.p.c.
10:04 pm
w.'s findings are not going to trigger another response but definitely if you find that indeed a chemical weapons attack actually happened it will be damning for the russian and syrian government the saudi foreign minister says his country would be willing to send troops into syria as part of a white a coalition. air says saudi arabia has been discussing the deployment with the u.s. as the beginning of the syrian crisis he also added that we had previously proposed this idea to former u.s. president barack obama. regarding what is going on now there are discussions about the nature of the troops that will exist in eastern syria and where they will come from these discussions are continuing. or particle haven has more from washington d.c. . president donald trump really surprised all of his staff and a lot of people the department of defense when he said he wanted all of the u.s. troops out of syria right away the department of defense was able to convince him
10:05 pm
that perhaps he should wait he has said fine just a couple of months basically what he said on the campaign trail is what he's doing in office let somebody else deal with that we know he's held back millions of dollars that was designed to be spent on syrian reconstruction so what his message is is pulling out the fighters somebody else go in you make sure that isis doesn't come back well the department of defense is going to be very wary of this plan from saudi arabia although they won't common comment on it right now wall street journal is reporting that mr bolton the new national security advisor. the saudis and the united arab emirates to send troops and to also give funding for syria now why would they possibly be against this well there is great concern among leadership inside the military about the ability of saudi forces i mean let's just look at the war in yemen that the u.s. has been helping them fight with intelligence and refueling there's been humanitarian catastrophes numbers of schools and hospitals and funerals that have
10:06 pm
been hit raising big concern among human rights advocates so there's a concern about the level of the ability of the saudi forces the other big concern is would u.s. forces stay there that's what we reportedly are hearing that they want to have happen as part of this coalition not at all clear the president is going to be ok with that it's not a huge force about two thousand u.s. special forces in syria but obviously critical to sort of staging an organizing the fight. it's a claim of pushing there now a false alarm calls to the triggering of syrian air defense systems overnight according to state media earlier pro-government reports suggest as miss ounce of time for two syrian military bases have been intercepted but the sama state news agency says there was quote no external aggression. a white house economic adviser says the u.s. is only considering additional sanctions on russia despite its ambassador to the
10:07 pm
u.n. nikki haley promising more measures over the weekend a white house correspondent kimberly how kid is live in west palm beach florida near the modern legal resort where trump is currently hosting the japanese prime minister hi there kimberly so does this mean the trumpet ministration is backing down on sanctions and are they meeting right now. it seems to be an awkward reversal of what looks like a policy that was about to be rolled out only to have it hastily snapped back to right the u.s. ambassador to the united nations nikki haley on sunday saying that sanctions against russia additional sanctions were imminent for its support of syrian president bashar a lot only to have the white house dial back on that on monday and then double down on it today here out near mar a lago where the president's top economic advisor larry kudlow in fact said that even tried to portray this is a mistake on the part of the u.s.
10:08 pm
ambassador say it was a bit of momentary confusion that additional sanctions are under consideration but right now are not going to be implemented certainly what this is yet another example of an administration that essentially really has a lot of difficulty rolling out any sort of policy in a constructive way another botching of that but even more so what this is is another failure of this president to rein in what the u.s. congress the house overwhelmingly said is russian aggression not to get just against the united states but ally of japan but the japanese don't exactly feeling that they. no in fact the two have been sitting down at mar a lago and just the last few moments in the body language seems to tell it all a bit of awkward conversation awkward sort of body language between the two men despite sort of the official line which is that this is a very strong friendship that exists between the two men in truth they have met at least six times that's more than any other foreign leader has met with donald trump
10:09 pm
even before he was sworn in as president but at the same time there's some tension there because of some pretty big issues this meeting between the two will since it come down to trade as well as security but i'm told fred certainly the u.s. has been rather harsh in japan the so-called friend in recent weeks you have to remember that japan was certainly very strong in terms of its cautioning of any sort of formal relations or any kind of warming of relations if you will between north korea as well as the united states now we have that coming summit between the two slated for the end of may possibly early june and then also those tariffs that have been slapped on foreign imports of steel and aluminum into the united states well a lot of countries were exempted from that but not japan so you're right japan not feeling the so-called love of the united states right now looking for some deliverables in terms of security and economics and trade not getting them so far from the united states and certainly as the two leaders sit down for their
