7:09 pm
held out of the next round of the a stand up process aimed at ending the violence that also took aim at all the western powers. while we are building options for peace some of the other colleagues are trying to destroy the results of our joint constructive efforts not even following the international law like in the recent operation by the u.s. u.k. and france against syria roy chalons has more from moscow. this meeting was a way for russia turkey and iran co-sponsors of the standard talks to set the scene for the next round of those negotiations which are in a couple of week's time a the fourteenth and fifteenth the three countries here although they have been pushing these negotiations into their ninth rounds now. do have disagreements they have disagreements over the future of president bashar al assad's turkey has always thought that he shouldn't be part of syria's future and turkey also disagrees with russia on iran over the recent u.s. u.k.
7:10 pm
and french airstrikes which were a response to what those three countries said was a chemical weapons attack in duma now turkey supports though that view and thinks that the russian perspective that this has set back the political process in syria is not necessarily true but the turks do have criticisms of the united states saying that they should give up their ongoing support for the kurds when we do get to the next round of the start of talks in a couple of weeks we're likely to see. a similar situation to previous times which is that the opposition are reluctance to come now the route the opposition has always felt the. talks were essentially a sideshow a distraction from what should be taking place which is the resumption of negotiations in geneva the official u.n. sponsored talks and the opposition has long felt that water starner is essentially
7:11 pm
doing is just hollowing out geneva stripping it of all the main political platforms political points and essentially giving cover for russia and the syrian government forces on the ground to continue pushing home their military advantage. meanwhile in other developments at least eighteen people have reportedly been killed in syria's largest palestinian refugee camp over the past twenty four hours the syrian government is trying to retake several neighborhoods in southern damascus including the are moot refugee camp from myself itas activists estimate that between forty to sixty percent of the campaign has been destroyed just over a week into the offensive. the newly appointed u.s.
7:12 pm
secretary of state might bomb bio has arrived in saudi arabia ahead of a three day trip to the region won by zero was sworn into his new post on thursday off his predecessor rex tillerson was sacked last month is due to hold talks with the saudi foreign minister there before having dinner with the crown prince mohammed bin cell none are expected to discuss the iran nuclear deal following donald trump's threats to pull the u.s. out of the accord next month kristen salumi joins us live now from washington this is first visit as secretary of state what is the saudi view of him compared to his predecessor rex tillerson. well certainly mike pompei as views on iran are more in line with president trumps president trump of course has been very disparaging of the agreement that was reached with world powers in iran to do nuclearized the country and mike palm pale when he was in congress was known as an iran hawk he's talked about wanting to roll back the deal and. take on
7:13 pm
the iranian administration more head on so we know that this is where he's coming from whereas rex tillerson had a more european view about the deal he was no big fan of the agreement but he was more sympathetic to europeans who were worried about blowing up the deal and the implications that would have he was looking for ways like they have been to strengthen the deal as opposed to. get the united states a pull out of it all together so we know that this may twelfth deadline is fast approaching when president trump has to decide whether or not to impose u.s. sanctions on iran and there's no doubt that this is one of the issues that tom pale will want to talk about with the saudi leadership right and how important is it then that he is meeting the saudis and the israelis on his first official trip to the region as secretary of state yeah it was announced just hours after he was
7:14 pm
sworn in that he would be making this trip course he did go to a nato headquarters first for a meeting there then he is to saudi arabia israel and jordan but i would say that's very much in keeping with the president trying agenda as well president trump's first trip to the region was also to saudi arabia and israel of course we know mr pompei was also been busy with north korea but that was before he was officially sworn in and so a lot of issues on the table for the u.s. administration globally right now but clearly what's happening in the middle east is a major concern. thank you very much from washington christian salumi with all the latest on that story you know is al jazeera much more still ahead for you we speak to wrangle refugees about the horrors they faced at the hands of myanmar as military. and joyce banda is back why the former president has returned to the country risking arrest.
7:15 pm
however let's settle across southeastern parts of china very different story further north still some very heavy rain up towards will hang up towards shanghai so you know it's twenty eight celsius twenty eight celsius there for hong kong as well the rain becoming a little more wise but as we go on through monday but for the south again hong kong dust a fine and dry scattering the showers down into india china scattering of showers to into the philippines has some rather shabby rain also affecting parts of thailand recently and that was the weather well that makes its way right across the bay of bengal southern parts of india pushing across into sri lanka seeing the showers continue not to the northeast of india up towards bangladesh again we are staying a rather disturbed here over the next couple of days so we are going to see some very heavy rains in the far north east of india temperatures still getting well
7:16 pm
above the forty degree mark for many little more clout there's you can see a little cooler for the south the still wanted to show was there at the capital for example and also into sri lanka what about celsius from that pool forty one celsius for new delhi across eleven potential is generally fine and dry we have got the chance of some sandstorms further north and showers to the south. u.s. citizens obstructed from saving their family. as the crisis in yemen worsens some flood the horror of war only to be entangled in bureaucratic limbo with their lives and dreams of a future with on call. phone lines explores the all too real effects of trumps immigration policies. between war on the bomb on a just. a
7:17 pm
come back with al jazeera a look at the headlines this hour the saudi coalition air strikes have reportedly killed two three field leaders in the yemeni capital sana that as thousands of people turned out for the funeral of a who seek amanda killed by a strike last week russia's foreign minister is accusing the u.s. of trying to divide up syria sergey lavrov has met his turkish and iranian counterparts in last for talks aimed at ending the seven year civil war. and the new u.s. secretary of state my pompei was in saudi arabia spaza his first overseas trip is expected to discuss the iran nuclear deal with the saudi foreign minister and the
7:18 pm
crown prince mohammed bin sound man. on the news ruling party has announced it will not be nominating a candidate for prime minister at soft a massive antigovernment protests in the city of canary demanding an end to what they say is the ruling elite running the country weeks of unrest has led to the resignation of serge sarkozy an as prime minister and an interim leader installed in forrester walker joins us live now from yerevan so what happens next if the ruling party saying it won't be fielding a candidate for the post. that's a good question and that's the one we've all been scratching our heads over because clearly it's not just a straight forward that means that nicole passion the passion the passion the end is going to go ahead and it's the presumptive prime minister but when he made that announcement himself passing on that statement to the republican party it made the
7:19 pm
crowd went absolutely wild on the square behind me because there was concern that the republican party were going to put forward that acting prime minister is candidate and. it turns out no more popular than that the former prime minister who resigns earlier this week so the crowd boid by that yes we're expecting. the parliament to have this on tuesday and when they have this vote they call passion and has holds for all his supporters and we're talking about really what's most people now to come out onto the streets yet of and even up here in violence all to come down to your man and make their will known to the members of parliament in. parliament who the majority of which are republicans so they really have a choice now they can play the legislative games or they can submit
7:20 pm
as he's asking them to to the will of the people and select him as as their candidate i have actually just received a message from a republican. and he who said. they let us meet the candidates and let us make a decision in other words this means that they are potentially still open to negotiation with the opposition movements. which is interesting in and of itself because they could have stayed in if they abstained that would mean that. would not be pressure. i would not be the next prime minister that be another votes and then it would go to the electorate and there would be parliamentary elections but the the movement is very clear in that it doesn't warrants a repeat of previous elections that they say have been fooled you know. the odds of being stuck to get anyone but the republican party so if they don't get it he doesn't get into office if he doesn't become prime minister it'll be very difficult
7:21 pm
for them to beat the the way in which the electoral system is rigged at the moment you know media and so that won't be a resolution that won't be through the crowds will not be happy with outcome eat of it it looks as if the republicans saw let's say playing for time in the meantime this gives them a few more days this reduces the tension but we are not there yet sometimes of an outcome in this political bent i just every feel something can happen that's covered there yeah but i just if i if i could ask you something that you said is there a particular loyalty to nicole passion and team sense that support for him is growing . i mean. the loyalty to mr posh and yeah that's your question to the to the to the to the to the sorry to the to the opposition leader role to the acting prime minister. in the process has been
7:22 pm
going on for two weeks now is it your understanding that support for passion on is growing in the country. you know i i i get it. i was skeptical when i got here last and of last week when this was all reaching. over the before the resignation of the prime minister and i wanted to understand whether. you know whether there was a section of society. that wasn't. it wasn't with this with this guy we've missed the past ten years and that the republicans had some broad support somewhere but from from everything i'm seeing. it's very difficult to escape the impression that the vast majority of armenians have got behind this protest movement having been on the road today having seen people coming out to support the
7:23 pm
convoys of cars going by with the armenian flags in support of the opposition and then being here on the square and seeing the look on people's faces and feeling that excitement and there are people from all different walks of life and they're the older generation they're pensioners and then they're young people too and they're educated armenians you know and people coming from back from abroad to take part in this one gets a sense that this is an immovable irresistible movement that is that is that is taking place right now and it's up to the republican party to take that on board and recognise that that is what we are seeing that is what we're being told no no sign of those protests dying down a toll thank you very much for bringing us the latest from yerevan robyn far still walking that. now corinne's watching friday's meeting between kim jong un and lungi in so vastly different coverage depending on which side of the border they were
7:24 pm
wrong while many south koreans had free access to the historic summit in the north a message was tightly controlled james bays reports from cell. across south korea people watching the historic summit closely some were overwhelmed by the images the first time they'd seen a north korean leader step foot in that country the declaration that was signed was a declaration of intent nothing is actually changed yet but it could mean a very different political future for the next generation of koreans. well south korea had wall to wall coverage of the events in north korea on state controlled media a more edited version was presented people here of not yet been told of the possibility of the next meeting being between their leader and president trump experts say one of the people closest to kim is likely to be involved in changing the official
